DC Comic Book Releases For December 24, 2014

18 hours ago

As the end of the 75th Anniversary of Batman rolls around, DC Comics gives us a week full of gifts concentrated on the Dark Knight and his beloved family of crime fighters. It’s been a hard year for our Caped Crusader as he’s dealt with the death of his son and the change from Dick Grayson being a super hero to embracing the role of government agent. We also get some action from femme fatales Helena Bertinelli and Catwoman as they cross paths with dangerous enemies in their different and complex walks of life.

Writer Dan Abnett takes us into the heat of battle as the Eternity War gears up. He-Man and his pals go up against dark forces that plan to rule the universe from the captured Castle Grayskull. Can the combined strengths of She-Ra, Teela, and He-Man reclaim Eternia in the name of all that’s good? »

Directors' Trademarks: Tim Burton

23 December 2014 4:54 PM, PST

At least once a month, Cinelinx will chose one director for an in-depth examination of the “signatures” that they leave behind in their work. With the release of Big Eyes this week, let’s examine the trademark style and calling signs of Tim Burton as director.

Burton went to college to study animation. His work there caught the eye of Disney and he was hired on as an animator. He worked on several projects before it became apparent that his style did not fit with what Disney wanted to do. He worked on several short film projects before catching the eye of Paul Reubens who offered Burton the opportunity to direct his first full length motion picture, Pee Wee’s Big Adventure (1985). That film was a success and led to Burton’s working relationship with Oingo Boingo frontman Danny Elfman. Burton’s next opportunity was 1988’s Beetlejuice, which was also »

Star Trek 3 Gets a Release Date

23 December 2014 11:47 AM, PST

Hot on the heels of Paramount picking a new director for Star Trek 3, it looks like they've also finally set a release date for the upcoming sequel...as expected it's in 2016.  

Well when the wheels start turning they get to moving pretty quickly.  At the start of this week, Star Trek 3 had no director and no release date, with many wondering if Paramount would still be able to make their planned 2016 release window in time for the franchise's big anniversary.  Now, within the span of 24 hours, Star Trek 3 looks back on track with Justin Lin (Fast & Furious) brought on to direct, and a release date set for July 8, 2016.  

Paramount has scheduled Star Trek 3 for release on July 8, 2016. #StarTrek3

A Summer release should come as no surprise.  Justin Lin is known for reinvigorating franchises and turning them back into gold, and I'm sure Paramount is hoping that'll be »

Filming on the Entourage movie started early this year, and fans of the show couldn't be more excited.  Today brings the first real look at the movie and the chance for you to see the gang back together: 

I can't say I'm a huge fan of Entourage, having never really gotten into the show.  What I've seen of the series, I've thoroughly enjoyed.  With the film releasing on June 5, 2015 maybe I'll have time to finally knock out the entire series and see why my brother can't shut the hell up about it!

Movie star Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Kevin Connolly), Turtle (Jerry Ferrara) and Johnny (Kevin Dillon), are back… »

Watch Four Minutes of Gameplay from Etherium

23 December 2014 7:22 AM, PST

Production is winding down on Etherium, an exciting looking Rts game, and the developers are treating fans with a look at the different gameplay modes in an all new video.  Come inside to check it out!

I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that 2015 (so far) seems to be the year of the Rts renaissance.  The strategy genre is easily one of my favorites in all of gaming, and for a while they seemed to be on the outs (unless you were Blizzard), but it seems to be coming back in a big way.  One of my most looked forward to games is hitting early next year, Etherium, and today brings a new gameplay trailer to show off all the cool things you'll be able to do: 

No post-production, mere commented gameplay, illustrating the richness of Etherium and its gameplay subtleties: discover its 3 playable factions and their specificities, »

Justin Lin Will Helm Star Trek 3 for Paramount

22 December 2014 4:46 PM, PST

Early this month, Roberto Orci stepped down from directing duties on Star Trek 3, and Paramount has been hunting for someone to take his Place.  A shortlist of directors looked promising, but only one man can take the job, and they've given it to Justin Lin.  Come inside to learn more!

We knew Paramount had to work fast.  A lot of rumors were swirling soon after it was announced that Roberto Oric was no longer directing Star Trek 3 (though he is still producing it), including reports that he was taken off the project because Paramount wasn't happy with the script.  2016 marks Star Trek's big 50th anniversary, and the studios aren't about to let such a prime spot slip away from them without a new movie.  So they don't seem to have wasted much time in finding a new director in Justin Lin, known best for his Fast & Furious movies. »

Laika's Kubo and the Two Strings Has an Incredible Cast

22 December 2014 1:32 PM, PST

Laika, the studio behind Coraline and most recently The Boxtrolls, have announced their next project, Kubo and the Two Strings, giving fans a release date to look forward to and a stellar line-up of voice actors as well.  Come inside to learn more about the film.  

I really like Laika and the films they put out.  The animation style alone and the things they bring to the table are always worth checking out and enjoying.  They're keeping alive a form of animation that continues to be impressive.  As such, they've acquired a lot of fans over the years, and today they're giving fans something to look forward to.  They've announced their next film is Kubo and the Two Strings set to release on August 19, 2016.  So you have a little while to wait, still, but in the meantime you can read more about the film's plot and the incredible line-up of »

Get a Good Look at Kylo Ren's Mask in The Force Awakens

22 December 2014 8:36 AM, PST

While we've seen Kylo Ren, the new villain in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, from behind, today brings our first real look at what he's hiding under that tattered hood of his.  Come inside to check out some new concept art of his helmet/mask. 

Earlier we got our first "look" at the front side of Kylo Ren via the leaked prototypes for the upcoming The Force Awakens action figures, but Indie Revolver has decided to give fans a much better look thanks to this leaked concept art: 

Technically speaking, you can consider this in rumor territory as Lucasfilm hasn't officially revealed all of Kylo Ren just yet, but I've seen other concept art that matches this pretty closely (which also lines up with our buds at MakingStarWars and their descriptions), so I'm going to go ahead and list this as real.  Ir makes mention that this is pretty »

First Look at Prototypes for The Force Awakens Action Figures

22 December 2014 7:54 AM, PST

The Force Awakens is landing in theaters net year, and of course, this mean new toys will be hitting as well. Today some leaked prototypes of the figures have hit the net, giving us our best look at the new villain so far!  

The great truism in geek culture is that toys do not lie, and often times give us our first or best look at new movie characters.  While The Force Awakens trailer gave us a glimpse of these characters, this leaked image of some 6 inch figure prototypes gives us a clearer look at them...sort of.  Check it out:

These come from a Chinese Star Wars forum and seem to show off some of the things Hasbro is working on for their six inch, The Black Series, line of toys (my favorite line-up so far in toy collectibles).  While no names are given, clearly this looks like Rey with Bb-8, Finn, »

Cinelinx's Favorite Films of 2014

22 December 2014 7:34 AM, PST

The year is almost over and that means it’s time to look back and reflect upon the films that were released this year, and see what has stuck with us the most in 2014.  Come join the Cinelinx team as we discuss our favorite films of the year! 

Although 2015 has a number of eagerly awaited releases, 2014 ended up to be a pretty darn good year for movies. While the number of releases is down compared to years past, the quality of films for 2014 was outstanding. The big budget blockbusters released this year for the most part got great reviews and audiences responded to them well. There were a number of creative indie and smaller releases that both entertained and inspired us. Overall, as a movie lover you can’t complain too much about the films released in 2014. 

Since a lot of good and popular movies were released, that means that »
