Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 2

14 September 2014 6:33 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

We’ve reviewed every summer movie season since 1980 to find out which are the best, and which are the worst. Last week we posted our picks for the worst, and here we post our picks for the best. 

2015 and 2016 may just be the most overthetop summer movie seasons yet. It seems like nearly every movie slated for a summer 2015 or 2016 release is heavily anticipated. Because of these impending summers of movie awesomeness, we’ve decided to take a look back at summer movie seasons of years past. The idea of the summer movie season is currently in full swing, but it didn’t catch on immediately. Hollywood had to do its fair share of experimenting to determine what types of films would be most successful. As a result, some summer movie seasons have been better than others. We’ve reviewed them all for you and ranked them from worst to best. »

10 Insane Avengers Moments You’ll Never See In The Movies

13 September 2014 12:20 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

If there’s one thing that Guardians of the Galaxy proved, it’s that comic book movies can get away with some pretty crazy things – talking raccoons, walking trees, galactic museum-dwelling Liberaces, anthropomorphic talking ducks and jokes about walls looking like a Jackson Pollock painting under a black light to name but a few.

That said, those kind of things don’t necessarily work in all comic book movies, as Guardians of the Galaxy had a certain tone which made it very unique in the genre. Its crazy concept allowed for inclusions that would ruin other movies in the comic book genre, but they made Guardians of the Galaxy a surprise success and one of the most refreshing offerings of the year.

For example, while there are elements of humour, implausible concepts and weird and wonderful characters in the movies involving the Avengers members, there’s certainly a limit. »

Movies This Week: September 12-18, 2014

12 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

 

The Alamo Drafthouse Ritz is turning the spotlight on some of their favorite films of the year this week by bringing in The Dance Of Reality, The Grand Budapest Hotel (Don's review), Obvious Child (Elizabeth's review), The Raid 2 and We Are The Best! (my review) for select showtimes. Each screening is just $5 and these films are all worth checking out on the big screen if you missed them or just want to see them again.

Also at the Ritz this week: Broadway Brunch returns with The Music Man in 35mm on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Howard The Duck screens on Sunday with a live Q&A featuring Val Mayerik (a co-creator of the original comic), the original 1987 Robocop on Sunday for Tough Guy Cinema, a rare 35mm screening of The Assassination of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford on Tuesday and A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master »

10 Ridiculous Obscure Marvel Characters - Part 2

10 September 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A couple of weeks ago I posted the first ten ridiculous and obscure characters that Marvel has created over the years, which you can check out here if you missed it. There are so many of them that I decided to break it down into multiple parts, and I have ten more crazy characters that I think you'll all get a kick out of, especially if you've never heard of them below.

Hellcow

Real name: Bessie

She's a vampire cow! Seriously! One night Dracula is traveling through Switzerland and finds Bessie and drinks her blood. Bessie's owner discovers her lifeless body and buries her. Three days later, she rises from the dead and begins to roam the earth seeking revenge on Dracula. After 300 years of fruitless searching, Bessie travels to Cleveland. She meets Howard the Duck, whom she mistakes for Dracula. A raging, confused Bessie attacks Howard, who drives a »

11 Marvel Movies That Almost Happened

10 September 2014 4:18 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel

Marvel have been pumping out movies on a regular basis for years. Whether it’s through their own studio or via other studios that have the rights to their characters, the comic book giants are very prolific with regards to the number of movies based on their titles.

Now, more than ever, with three ongoing franchises – Marvel Studios’ own Marvel Cinematic Universe, Fox’s X-Men (and soon to be Fantastic Four) franchise and Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man franchise – they are firing on all cylinders with regards to movie releases.

Other Marvel titles over the years have included (but are not limited to) Howard the Duck, three Punisher movies, three Blade movies, Daredevil, Elektra, two Ghost Rider movies, Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, Ang Lee’s Hulk movie and Fox’s first attempt at a Fantastic Four series of movies (as well as some cheap non-theatrical released movies like Man-Thing »

2014 Baltimore Comic Con: Marvel Universe Panel

6 September 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marvel’s presence at Baltimore Comic Con was low tech and fairly quiet with no slides or big announcements, but fans in the audience got to ask a variety of questions to Marvel’s creative talent from stupid ones like “Is the new Thor a lesbian?” to ones about the fates of various characters, the amount of creator/editorial interplay in different titles, and why digital comics cost as much as print copies. The panelists were Senior Vice President of Publishing Tom Brevoort, writer Charles Soule (She-Hulk, Death of Wolverine),  writer/artistJim Starlin (Thanos: Infinity Revelation), inker Mark Morales (Infinity, Original Sin), and writer Mark Waid (Daredevil).

Before the panel began, Tom Brevoort told the audience that it was Marvel’s comics, not their films, cartoons, or merchandising, but there will still quite a few questions about various things like this from asking if Marvel Studios would ever buy Spider-Man »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Deleted Stan Lee Cameo Revealed!

4 September 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Heading into a Marvel movie, we can always expect two things. One: We're sure to have a good time. And two: A Stan Lee cameo. It just wouldn't be a Marvel movie without Stan the Man showing up in some capacity, and Guardians of the Galaxy was no exception. In fact, the creator of the Marvel universe as we know it today was set to appear in two different scenes in this sci-fi epic. Only one of them made it into the movie. Direrctor James Gunn now shares a photo from the deleted Stan Lee cameo featuring a stand-in, and explains why it's not in the finished film.

Take a look at the image from James Gunn's Instagram, and then read on for more details:

The scene in question actually has Stan Lee sitting inside the Collector's Museum. Visiting Dragon Con, director James Gunn explained the scene in detail for the first time, »

Meet the New Stars of 'Dancing With the Stars' Season 19

4 September 2014 2:51 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Apparently "Dancing with the Stars," ABC's competitive series that partners celebrities with talented young dancers and then has them square off against each other, to much heartbreak and sprained ankles, is still, very much, a thing. This fall is actually the nineteenth season of the series, and ABC has announced the cast of the new season (via EW).

Among the celebrities recruited this time around: male model and one-time "General Hospital" star Antonio Sabato, Jr., fashion designer Betsey Johnson and "Back to the Future" star Lea Thompson (wonder if they'll manage to squeeze in a "Howard the Duck" reference in there). Also, Alfonso Ribeiro from "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" is also in the mix, so expect him to do "The Carlton" at least once during the season. Maybe the most wondrously Wtf-worthy inclusion in this cast is erudite PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley. It'll be quite interesting to »

10 Cures For Your Guardians Of The Galaxy Withdrawals

3 September 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

One of the possible factors as to why Guardians of the Galaxy has connected with audiences so successfully is that it comes from a subcategory of sci-fi storytelling that has been little seen since the halcyon days of the video shop, for want of a better categorisation; “The Space Adventure Team-up”.

Most of the films that Guardians shares its DNA with were made in the 70s and 80’s, or snuck away on TV in the 90s and early 00s. The good thing is they’re all out still out there waiting to be discovered, and if you find yourself Jonesing for that off-kilter brand of sci-fi that can shift effortlessly from high sci-fi concepts to not taking itself too seriously then the following article is a good place to start.

One film you won’t find here is Howard The Duck (similarly there is no mention of The Racoons… »

'Guardians of the Galaxy 2' Will Introduce More Female Characters

2 September 2014 11:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director James Gunn attended Dragon Con over the weekend, where he continued to promote his Marvel sci-fi adventure Guardians of the Galaxy, now the biggest movie of 2014. The subject of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 arose, specifically whether or not the character of Captain Marvel will be showing up. She won't, Gunn says, but the sequel will be used to introduce a number of new female characters.

Guardians of the Galaxy isn't without it's own strong female leads, with dueling sisters Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and Nebula (Karen Gillan), as well as Glenn Close as Nova Prime. But there are a number of other female characters that have been introduced in the Marvel comics that could be making their way to the big screen in 2016.

Marvel Studios has come under fire in recent months for its lack of female driven superhero movies. Black Widow is the most prominent of the current stable, »

James Gunn Says 'Ms. Marvel' Won't Join The Guardians; Reveals Stan Lee's Original Cameo

1 September 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Collider have a lengthy recap of James and Sean Gunn's recent appearance at Dragon Con in Atlanta, and plenty of great new reveals about Guardians of the Galaxy were revealed in the process. Perhaps the best one is what the writer and director originally had planned for Stan Lee's cameo, something he describes as a battle he lost with Disney (something which surprised Gunn after he managed to get them to leave in the line referencing Jackson Pollock).  The original plan was for Lee to be one of the Collector's exhibit (where he would have joined a Dark Elf from Thor: The Dark World, Cosmo, and Howard the Duck to name just a few), and the scene would have featured Groot looking at the legendary comic creation in shock only for him to get the middle finger from the man responsible for breathing life into the likes of »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' defends its box-office roost over Labor Day weekend

1 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Labor Day weekend, 2014: that time when a movie featuring an anthropomorphized raccoon and a talking tree became the highest-grossing release of the year. In its fifth weekend, Guardians of the Galaxy continued to stay in pole position thanks to weak holiday competition, taking in an estimated total of $22.2 million over the four days ($16.5 million for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and bringing its grand domestic take up to $280.5 million. That number would have only made it the fourth highest-grossing movie at the same time in 2013 (after Iron Man 3, Despicable Me 2, and Man of Steel), but in a relatively slow year for blockbusters, »

Guardians Of The Galaxy: James Gunn Shares A Behind-The-Scenes Shot Of Him And 'Cosmo'

26 August 2014 6:32 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In honor of #NationalDogDay here's a photo of me and my 2nd favorite dog in the universe. #cosmo… http://t.co/obxxGbf4ZB — James Gunn (@JamesGunn) August 26, 2014 I'm not sure about you guys, but I was surprised to see Cosmo played by an actual dog (instead of being brought to life through CGI like Rocket Raccoon and Howard the Duck), though it was just a fun cameo. Perhaps we'll see the Soviet pooch make a return - and telepathically talk - in the sequel? Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gilian, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close and Benicio del ToroGuardians of the Galaxy is out now! What did you guys think of the movie and Cosmo's cameo? »

Funko Reveals Howard The Duck Toy

26 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Funko obviously has a good relationship with Marvel and they are currently releasing lots of cool toys based on the studio's most recent hit, Guardians of the Galaxy. Yesterday we showed you the dancing Groot toy, and now today we have Howard the Duck

This was one of the coolest and most surprising cameos from any Marvel film. The character was voiced by Seth Green, and I hope that it's not the last we see of him. The toy was revealed by Executive Editorial Director of Marvel Digital Media, Ryan Penagos. There's no exact release date yet, but it will be released soon. »

Marvel announces Howard the Duck Funko Pop! figure

26 August 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week Marvel announced a Dancing Groot Funko Pop! vinyl figure from Guardians of the Galaxy is set to hit shelves, and now Agent M has taken to Twitter to reveal that Howard the Duck will follow up his cameo in the smash hit space opera by joining Groot with his very own Funko bobble-head…

As yet, there’s no word on a release date for either the Dancing Groot or Howard the Duck figures, but you’d have to imagine both Marvel and Funko are keen to capitalise on the success of Guardians of the Galaxy, so expect them very soon.

Guardians Of The Galaxy: Marvel Reveal Official Toy Based On After-Credits Scene Star

25 August 2014 2:38 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While it wasn't his big screen debut, Howard the Duck's appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy is sure to go down as one of the best Marvel cameos to date. Voiced by Seth Green (Family Guy) the fan favourite character is now getting his own toy courtesy of Funko. It was revealed late last week that the Dancing Groot would also be receiving the bobblehead treatment and you can take a look at that by clicking on the link below. Howard will likely be nearly as in demand as Groot, so good luck getting your hands on one when it eventually does go on sale. What do you think? Joining Dancing Groot from @OriginalFunko, Howard the Duck makes his Pop! debut soon! pic.twitter.com/uguOWG21Kd — Ryan Penagos (@AgentM) August 25, 2014 Click here to see the first official "Dancing Groot" toy from Marvel and Funko. »
