Scars Of Dracula Sixth Scale Figure from Star Ace Toys & Sideshow

1 hour ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The great Christopher Lee may no longer be with us, but he will live on forever through his many memorable performances. One of his most iconic turns in front of the camera came from playing the titular bloodsucker in 1970's Scars of Dracula, a nightmare-inducing role depicted with incredible detail by Star Ace Toys' new sixth scale figure from Sideshow.

From Sideshow Collectibles: "Not just an actor but also soldier, spy, linguist, Knight of the British Empire and heavy metal enthusiast, Christopher Lee made over 250 films in his long career, including appearing in the most beloved film franchises of all time, James Bond, Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.

The role that thrust Lee into the global spotlight was a time honoured character that had already become indelibly associated with another actor. But Lee’s portrayal and popularity in the role of Dracula for Hammer Films made the tall »

How Much Would a Real Star Wars At-at Cost?

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

For nearly four decades, the iconic Star Wars franchise has not only brought fans countless memorable characters, but also iconic vehicles as well. One of the biggest of these vehicles is the All Terrain Armored Transport, best known as the At-at, which appeared in The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi and last year's blockbuster The Force Awakens. If you've been wondering how much it would actually cost to construct an At-at in real life, a new infographic has the staggering answer.

According to the Star Wars Databank, At-at's stand over 20 meters (60 feet) tall, which come equipped with "blast-impervious armor plating." BestCasino.co.uk has broken the construction of this massive vehicle into four main categories, which brings the total cost to $228.5 million. That's just for the parts, labor and construction of the ship itself, with the site adding that it would cost another $192,000 per year in crew costs. »

Top 10 Movies of 2016 Before Oscar Season

4 hours ago | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

The Fall is here and that means a lot of premeditated releases by every studio is about to hit between now and the end of the year, films that they think will have award, specifically, Oscar appeal.

When it comes to movies typically award-talk is often a nebulous affair until the final quarter of the year, not just because it’s too premature earlier in the year but mostly because of this unofficial Oscar season slate of release and, to a lesser extent, people tend to forget films later in the year that were released in the first few months going into the Summer. An example last year was Ex Machina which had at least a  couple of Oscar-level performances and still has me feeling it was one of the 3-4 best movies from last year. Alicia Vikander won just about every award for her performance in the film sans the Oscar, »

Here’s the synopsis: “Emerging from Ann Arbor Michigan amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B, and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed. Jim Jarmusch’s new film ‘Gimme Danger’ chronicles the story of The Stooges, one »

Emily S. Whitten: Fan2Sea –The Comic-Con on a Cruise Ship

8 hours ago | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I’ve always wanted to go on a cruise. I love being out on the water, and have even joked that I’d live in a tiny house surrounded by water if I could. So it’s kind of silly that I’ve never been on a cruise, isn’t it? And I love comic-cons, as anyone who’s ever read my column will know. So when I first saw that someone was organizing Fan2Sea, a comic-con on a cruise ship (and one with an adorably punny name, at that!), I thought, “What? I have to go! Also, this absolutely sounds too good to be true! Because it’s a comic-con. On a cruise ship. How can this be?!?”

And then I saw the line-up, and my mind boggled even more. Because after a million and three recommendations from literally everyone I know, I’m in the midst of watching the Netflix original, »

Final Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer Likely To Hit Late October

9 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Gotta love the power of a massive multimedia conglomerate like Disney!

For better or worse, the House of Mouse has a stronghold on everyone’s childhood. From Marvel to Star Wars and Pixar, there’s little doubt they have a monopoly on everything mainstream audiences hold dear. Luckily for us, as of this writing, they seem to be doing a service to these properties. All three have strong brand recognition, and all three still evoke happy emotions from most viewers.

Now, a report from trusted site Star Wars News Net indicates that Disney will continue to capitalize on the synergy between their properties. During the Kino Expo International, held in St. Petersburg, it was announced that the final Rogue One: A Star Wars Story would be attached to the film Doctor Strange upon its October 28 release in Russia.

So what does this mean for us? While it wasn’t confirmed, »

James Zafar obituary

10 hours ago | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

My brother-in-law, James Zafar, who has died aged 48 from bone cancer, was a gifted production and concept designer for television. He was the creator of the sets and “look” for the BBC’s The Great British Bake Off and MasterChef, among many others.

James (known as Barrie to his family) was born in Blackburn, Lancashire. His father, Shahid, came to the town from Nizamabad, Pakistan, to work in the velvet mills before training to become a chef and marrying James’s mother, Christine (nee Gabbott). James’s gift for drawing led to him winning an art competition in one of his comics, the prize for which was a ticket to the cinema. He took himself to see Star Wars and decided there and then to become a designer.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic Remake Is Still Around, But In Stasis (Exclusive)

10 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Things have been quiet since we originally reported on a planned remake/remaster for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.  With many fans still crossing their fingers and waiting, we have some new information to update you all with.  Come inside to learn more!  

It's been awhile since we initially reported on the Knights of the Old Republic remake/remaster, despite posting some minor updates I'd heard on my Twitter account.  As such, and considering some new(ish) information I've come across, I figured now was as good a time as any to provide a more formal update on the state of the beloved RPG.  

First of all, I'd like to refresh your memory on my original report last year.  I started out by stating my reluctance to comment on the news I'd heard, even though I had word from three entirely separate sources saying the same information. »

Lupita Nyong’o Finds Her Strength in ‘Queen of Katwe’ (Video)

12 hours ago | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Kenyan native Lupita Nyong’o is known for not only winning the Oscar for Supporting Actress for playing slave Patsey in “12 Years a Slave,” but also for doing it it with astonishing style.

But since her 2014 win, she has done more modeling (Mui Mui, Lancome), social media, and theater (playing a 15-year-old Liberian rape victim on Broadway in “Eclipsed”) than high-profile film parts (“Non-Stop”). Turns as Maz Kanata in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and Raksha in “The Jungle Book” were voice roles.

So “Queen of Katwe” marks a welcome return to the big screen, working with her mentor Mira Nair, whose husband and Nyong’o’s father were friends at university. When Nyong’o voiced an interest in working in film, she was surprised to find out that her dad’s Uganda pal was married to Nair. “I interned for her at Mirabai films and worked at the lab, »

Final Trailer for ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ Brings the Magic

14 hours ago | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From Star Wars to Marvel, there’s a number of big blockbusters this year, but only one film will feature a return to a world we haven’t seen in over half-a-decade. Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, a spin-off of sorts in this magical world of Harry Potter, is actually scripted by J.K. Rowling herself and features the return of director David Yates (who helmed the final four films). This new film follows Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander, the wizarding world’s preeminent magizoologist, who stops in New York following his travels to find and document magical creatures.

“I read the books and I then started watching the films and it was just like the most wonderful escapism,” Redmayne tells Collider. “Like every year or two, you got to go and sort of dive into this world and J.K. Rowling’s capacity to kind of, really sort of »
