Mezco Unwraps #NYCC14 Exclusive Black and White Mummy Action Figure

19 August 2014 12:58 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Yesterday we showed you one of Mezco's 2014 New York Comic Con exclusive action figures, which brings the titular Son of Frankenstein to our toy shelves. Today we've learned that Mezco is going retro for another exclusive toy at this year's event so read on to check it out!

Based on the classic 1932 Universal monster movie The Mummy, this limited edition variant depicts the titular character in all his black and white glory, just as he was seen in the film.

Imhotep stands 9″ tall, and the figure captures the intricate detail of each ancient bandage: from his mysterious eyes to his legendary scarab ring. With 11 points of articulation he’ll be able to take out any explorer who dares to come between him and his tana leaves!

One of the most limited Universal Monsters ever produced by Mezco, he is an edition of only 250 pieces worldwide, packaged in a full color, »

A 9-inch scale figure with 11 points of articulation, The Mummy is depicted in black and white to commemorate the monster’s appearance in the 1932 Universal film. Only 250 figures were made, making The Mummy one of Mezco’s most limited figures ever released.

Daniel Radcliffe's Frankenstein Gets A Title Change

18 June 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Hot on the heels of the first posters for the just-retitled Dracula Untold comes news of Fox's Frankenstein project starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe, with Paul McGuigan directing from a script by Chronicle's Max Landis. In another title change, the film is now called Victor Frankenstein, the better to indicate an origin story and hopefully erase any memory of I, Frankenstein.This latest take on Mary Shelley’s chilling tale of man’s scientific hubris has McAvoy as the titular doctor and Radcliffe as his assistant Igor, through whose eyes the story will be told. Frankenstein, you’ll recall, is the man who thought it would be smart to build a creature out of dead people, which ultimately led to the screaming and the smashing and the mobs with the torches and property values going down all over the place.You won't find Igor in Shelley: his origins are in the Universal films, »

Beneath The Monster: Chatting with Sara Karloff

15 May 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Interview and photo by Michael Lizarraga.

When Lon Chaney Sr. drove by a tall, thin contract actor waiting for a bus one night in the pouring rain, the famous movie star did more than just offer this unassuming Englishman a ride home; he gave his passenger some acting tips that would forever change his life: “Find something that no one else is doing or willing to do, and do it better than anyone else; leave your mark.”

The unassuming passenger, of course, was Boris Karloff.

From its 1910 screen debut to the recent I, Frankenstein and upcoming Whale/Karloff remake, Mary Shelley’s “man playing God” tale has cinematically endured for over a century, largely due to the “quarterback” and “maestro” of all monsters, Boris Karloff. Twice inscribed on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, twice featured on the U.S. stamp, his voice heard every Christmas throughout millions of homes, Karloff »

‘I, Frankenstein’ box office: Frankenstein reboot is second domestic box office bomb of 2014 (photo: buffed up, shirtless Aaron Eckhart in ‘I, Frankenstein’) Made for a reported $65 million (not including marketing and distribution expenses), the Lionsgate-distributed I, Frankenstein is surely not about to become a movie franchise.

The weekend’s only new wide release in the United States and Canada, I, Frankenstein landed in sixth place on the domestic box office chart. I, Frankenstein, in fact, is the second major 2014 domestic box office bomb, following the $70 million-budgeted Renny Harlin-Kellan Lutz effort The Legend of Hercules, which debuted with $8.86 million at 2,104 locations a couple of weeks ago. To date, The Legend of Hercules »
