Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Re-Release Trailer

18 hours ago

"We came, we saw, we kicked its ass!"

Sony Pictures has released a trailer for the 30th anniversary re-release of the classic 1984 movie Ghostbusters. The movie will have a one-week engagement, and will be shown in more than 700 theaters nationwide beginning August 29th. This is one of my favorite movies of all time, so I couldn't be more excited to watch it on the big screen again. The last time I saw this movie in theaters is when it was first released back in the 80s when I was 5 years old. My kids love this movie too, so it will be fun to take them to see it on the big screen.

Check out Batgirl's Fabulous New Uniform

19 hours ago

Batgirl has an all new look, and a cool new uniform to fight crime in. I personally love it, and it's going to be great when we start seeing cosplayers sporting it in real life. The design comes from comic illustrator Babs Tarr who is making her mainstream comic debut with Batgirl. 

The new comic writing team consists of Cameron Stewart and Brenden Fletcher, who worked on Batman Inc. and Wednesday Comics. Barbara Gordon's new adventure begins with Batgirl #35, and it will reevaluate her life in a big way.

Stewart talked about the direction they are taking the character with MTV saying:

"She's leaving it all behind her. We really wanted to make this a book with a light tone, of fun and adventure and mystery, and let the rest of the Bat-family deal with the darkness. She's got problems, and conflict, and enemies to fight, but our priority »

OneReblublic Music Video for The Giver - "Ordinary Human"

20 hours ago

The Weinstein Company has released a music video for Jeff Bridges' feature film adaptation of The Giver. It features a new song by OneRepublic called "Ordinary Human," and it includes new footage from the fantastic looking film. 

The movie was directed by Phillip Noyce and it also stars Meryl Streep, Brenton Thwaites, Alexander Skarsgård, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush, and Taylor Swift.

The haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. The film is based on Lois Lowry's beloved young adult novel of the same name, which was the winner the 1994 Newbery Medal and has sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

The movie will be released in theaters on August 15th. »

Wow! Some People Actually Think Steven Spielberg Killed a Triceratops!?

20 hours ago

Sometimes people shockingly surprise me. A photo of director Steven Spielberg sitting in front of an animatronic dinosaur popped up on Facebook. The photo is obviously from the set of Jurassic Park, but that didn't stop people on Facebook from getting pissed off at him for killing the poor fake Triceratops. Can you believe that!? This is what the guy who posted the picture said in his caption:

"Disgraceful photo of recreational hunter happily posing next to a Triceratops he just slaughtered. Please share so the world can name and shame this despicable man."

I have no words for this, I just laughed a lot. Check out the Facebook to read more funny comments. Thanks to Geekologie for the tip!

Mad Men star Jon Hamm is looking to join the remake of the 1964 Don Knotts film, The Incredible Mr. Limpet. Other actors in talks to come on board include Kevin Hart, Danny McBride, Sarah Silverman, Josh Gad, and comedy duo Key & Peele. If cast they will join Zach Galifianakis.

The movie is being directed by Richard Linklater (Boyhood, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, After Midnight) from a script based on the novel by Theodore Pratt. Warner Bros. has been trying to get this movie made for the last 20 years, and it looks like it's finally coming together.

In this new version, Galifianakis is expected to play Larry Limpet, "a bearded beach bum trying to save the fish population.

Hot Wheels just released a photo of their awesome looking Star Wars inspired R2-D2 roadster!

Bryan Singer Looking to Direct Image Comics' The Age Of Heroes

11 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT

X-Men director Bryan Singer is currently developing X-Men: Apocalypse for 20th Century Fox. He's expected to direct the film regardless of the sexual abuse scandal and lawsuit. But who knows what will happen if things go badly for him. 

Fox President of Production Emma Watts told THR, "Right now we are totally at the outlining phase [on X-Men: Apocalypse]. But nothing would make me happier than if it all worked out. It's always been the intention for [Bryan] to do it." 

So if it doesn't "all work out" does that mean Singer won't be directing X-Men: Apocalypse? I guess we'll have to wait and see how this all plays out. Singer is already prepping a new project for him to take on if Apocalypse doesn't work out, or as something he can do after. The Tracking Board is reporting that Singer and his production company, Bad Hat Harry Productions, have picked up the rights »

It's A Superhero Beach Party! Art by Julian Totino Tedesco

11 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT

This amusing illustration comes from artist Julian Totino Tedesco. It was created for Tampa Bay Comic-Con, and it features several superheroes throwing a massive beach party, and several other iconic pop culture characters were invited. There's a lot of funny stuff going on in the image, my favorite is Batman fully dressed in black standing in the shade with Alfred handing him a drink. He must be miserable.  »

Darren Lynn Bousman to Direct Sci-Fi Action Film Apex

11 July 2014 1:30 PM, PDT

Saw franchise director Darren Lynn Bousman is set to direct an indie sci-fi action movie called Apex. Bousman has made some interesting films in his career outside of the Saw movies, and they consist of Repo: The Genetic Opera, 11-11-11, and The Devil's Carnival. He has a unique style, and this should be an interesting project for him.

The news comes from THR who describe the project as "Predator meets Call of Duty." And the plot tells the story of "a Special Ops team, sent to obtain a Wmd from North Korea, that is transported to another world. The team then finds themselves pitted against a dangerous alien race."

James E. Cavanaugh came up with the idea and wrote the screenplay "with an eye on current scientific trends in physics and biology." 

Bousman said that it's “a love letter to the sci-fi films I grew up watching with my dad such as Alien, »

Great Animated Short - The Terrible Thing Of Alpha-9!

11 July 2014 1:00 PM, PDT

I came across this very entertaining animated short for you to watch called The Terrible Thing of Alpha-9! It was created by Jake Armstrong for his graduation film project. The story follows a space bounty-hunter who travels to a distant planet to kill a terrible monster. Things don't go as smoothly as the bounty hunter would have hoped. The short was made back in 2009, but has just recently found its way online. It is done in a fun and loose style of animation, and I enjoyed the cartoony yet dark character designs. I absolutely loved the ending of this!

Collin Farrell in Talks to Join True Detective Season 2

11 July 2014 12:15 PM, PDT

Colin Farrell is in talks to take on the lead role in the second season of Nic Pizzolatto‘s HBO series True Detective. There's also word that Taylor Kitsch is also among the leading candidates for the second male lead. 

The first season of True Detective was incredible, and if you haven't seen it, you need too. It recently earned several Emmy nominations on Thursday, including lead actor nominations for both Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, as well as a Best Drama nomination. Those two actors both need to win for their roles!

HBO CEO Richard Plepler and president Michael Lombardo recently said that the first two scripts for season two are “more exciting” than those of the first season. I have no idea what that means but I assume they are just trying to build buzz.

All we really know about the second season at this point came from »

TV Spot for Richard Linklater's Boyhood

11 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT

This wonderful film was quite an achievement for director Richard Linklater, and everyone who was involved with making it. Boyhood is a cinematic adventure that you have to experience. It may not be a perfect movie, but the tone, story and characters were fantastic. 

The TV spot that was released highlights the growth of the central character of the film, Mason Jr., played by Ellar Coltrane from age 6 to age 18. It's done as a set of photos that flashes by in quick succession. 

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood »

Unbelievable Thorin Oakenshield Cosplayer from The Hobbit

11 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT

This is not Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield from The Hobbit films. This is a cosplayer from the recent FantasyCon cosplay competition that took play in Salt Lake City, Utah. I can't believe how much this guy looks like him though! It's insanely good! The photos were posted on Reddit by the cosplayer's wife, melodywise. He won the Best Fantasy, Solo award at the event.

New Info on Pacific Rim Animated Series

11 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT

Last month Guillermo del Toro not only announced a sequel to Pacific Rim, but an animated series as well. In a recent interview with Collider, the filmmaker talks about the series and what it will entail. The series is still very early in development, but he offered up some details on the premise and the timeline saying:

"It’s a great set-up and a link between the first movie and the second movie.  It really enhances the mythology of the characters; we have cameos of characters from the first movie, but mostly it’s a new set of characters.  New jaegers, except for one or two, [and] new kaijus.  It’s really fun."

He goes on to reveal that the show will be one long story, and not just a series of self contained episodes, which I love! I wish more American animated series would be like that. That's why I watch anime. »

Raphael Does His Batman Voice in New Ninja Turtles TV Spot

11 July 2014 9:30 AM, PDT

"I'm a snappin' turtle fool!"

Paramount Pictures has aired two new TV spots for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that have some fun new footage, including Raphael doing his Batman voice. I'm sure the movie will be very entertaining, regardless of the look of the turtles and Megan Fox's terrible acting. The movie is set to hit theaters on August 8th! I also included a video of the recent motion posters released.

Wonder Woman — 2014 Best of Cosplay Collection

11 July 2014 9:20 AM, PDT

Updated for 2014

A lot of really amazing Wonder Woman cosplay came out over the last year and 2/3 of this collection is completely new.

The costume is iconic and very hard to pull off well. First of all, parts of the costume are metal. Along with that, it's extremely form fitting, and just like Superman you either meet the physical requirements or you don't. Whether she's a symbol of female empowerment or the exact opposite is debatable. One thing for sure is you don't mess with Diana of Themyscira.

If you've got good cosplay or think I missed something, send it our way.
