24 years after the original film, Kate Leth and Drew Rausch continue the story of everyone’s favorite black wearing, hair dressing, tears inducing unlikely fairy tale hero. Edward Scissorhands #1 is set many years after the film, and Megs, the daughter of Kim (played by Winona Ryder) is now a teenager. Edward Scissorhands is considered to either be a murderer or a myth, and Kim’s own daughter considers her to be insane. Leth and Rausch explore his character through his interactions with Eli, one of the Inventor’s long forgotten inventions. They also introduce readers to Megs, an impetuous teen, who is fascinated with her grandmother and Edward. Edward Scissorhands #1 has a slow burning plot, but Rausch fills each panel with beauty and sadness. As a colorist, he uses mainly blacks and whites for the scenes with »

Director: Jonathan Liebesman.
Running Time: 101 minutes.
Synopsis: Thirty years on from their comic book inception, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael, are back once more to take down nemesis Shredder.
In the eighties and early nineties the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles had children the world over in frenzy. The very successful cartoon series spawned a trilogy of films before the series got overtaken by the likes of The Power Rangers. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is the latest restart of the comic book franchise that started thirty years ago. After the disappointing animated films a few years ago the heroes in a half-shell are back in action, managing to encapsulate the fun and fantasy of the 1980’s cartoon series.
And what of the pizza loving team? Liebesman easily manages to display the four different personalities that we all know to be Leonardo, »

Half the fun of attending Comic Con - either the New York or San Diego iteration - is the cosplayers. Whether elaborately, cleverly or just plain ol' hilariously costumed, cosplayers are the beating heart and soul of comic conventions. And this attendee has taken the art to new levels, as this picture (circulated on social media earlier today - New York Comic Con wrapped up Sunday) shows. This man took it upon himself to dress as characters from multiple Johnny Depp films, a postmodern experiment in actor worship that we can describe as pretty cool. In no particular order, this »
Why choose to dress up as one Johnny Depp character when you can just go as all of them? Many attendees at this weekend's New York Comic Con came decked out as their favorite movie and comics heroes, as Comic Con attendees are wont to do. Characters from such recent films as Guardians of the Galaxy and Edge of Tomorrow were well represented. But the costume that may have taken the cake was by one guy who wore bits of Depp's various costumes, including Jack Sparrow's dreads, Edward Scissorhands' pointy appendages and, yes, even the dead-bird hat from

The 2014 New York Comic Con came to a close over the weekend (October 12), and once again the cosplayers' costumes were of a very high calibre.
From a Lego Thor to inmates from Orange Is the New Black, here are 17 of the best costumes from the convention:
1. Robbie Savage, is that you under there?! An enthusiastic Comic Con attendee does Marvel's Thor.
2. Two fans of Disney Pixar's 2009 animation Up arrive as the old widower and the young Boy Scout.
3. Awww... Comic Con attendee Charles Canedo makes a cute Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy.
5. Comic Con fan Kerri Nugent poses as Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome villain Aunty Entity. With that hair, for a split second we thought it was »
Robert Downey Jr. took to Reddit for an Ama on Tuesday in anticipation of The Judge, which the actor called "the closest thing to a perfect film I've ever been part of" in response to a Reddit user. In his Ama, the actor covered everything from his time as Iron Man, to upcoming film projects, to his favorite late-night snack. Here are the 11 most interesting answers, with full Downey Jr. charm intact. 1. He cleared the air about Mel Gibson and Iron Man 4. Hoping to settle a quote that has been blown out of proportion, Downey clarified his intention of doing »

The 87th Academy Awards could see a collection of familiar names in the costume design category, from Oscar winner and 10-time nominee Colleen Atwood to one-time nominee Michael Wilkinson. When It comes down to securing nominations for costumes, it doesn’t matter how well the film has fared in other Oscar categories. Films such as Jane Eyre (2011), Mirror Mirror (2012) and The Invisible Woman (2013) were only nominated for costume design.
Atwood could receive nominations for Disney’s Into the Woods and Tim Burton’s Big Eyes during the upcoming awards cycle. Of her 10 nominations to date, she’s won three: best picture winner Chicago (2002), Memoirs of a Geisha (2005) and Burton’s Alice in Wonderland (2010). Atwood has designed the costumes for nine of Burton’s films: Edward Scissorhands (1990), Ed Wood (1994), Sleepy Hollow (1999), Planet of the Apes (2001), Big Fish (2003), Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street (2007), Alice in Wonderland »

“What a costume designer does is a cross between magic and camouflage. We create the illusion of changing the actors into what they are not. We ask the public to believe that every time they see a performer on the screen he’s become a different person.”
On Monday, Wamg attended the press preview for the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences groundbreaking multimedia exhibition Hollywood Costume in the historic Wilshire May Company building.
Taking five years to create, this exhibition is the kickoff for the whole Academy Museum of Motion Pictures.
Emphasizing how costumes are so important in creating characters, this one-of-a-kind exhibition comes with its own film score, enhanced with dazzling animations and screenplay excerpts.
Organized by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London (V&A), and sponsored by Swarovski, this ticketed exhibition »

When we talk about difficult film productions, the same names seem to come through. Apocalypse Now and The Deer Hunter, for instance, are productions with well-told stories of how those behind the scenes went to proverbial hell and back. In more recent times, most of us are more than familiar with the hell that those behind World War Z went through to get it to the screen.
What I though would be a bit different though is take a generally very successful film, and dig a bit deeper to see if there was a troubled story there. One where behind the scenes issues are rarely talked about. Given that I've come to this piece straight after writing about 1991's movies, here, I settled on The Addams Family. »
Was Edward Scissorhands the tailor of choice at Rumer Willis' latest photo shoot? Nope (although it may seem that way)! The 26-year-old offspring of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore is simply the new campaign face for fashion house Franziska Fox. A series of scantily clad photos, shot by famed fashion photographer Michael Avedon, have been released to showcase pieces from the brand's spring 2015 collection, and it's safe to say the eyebrow-raising shots, which take the longstanding cut-out fashion trend to a whole new level, leave little to the imagination. While Rumer undoubtedly looks gorgeous as she flaunts her bangin' bod and flawless »
Before the cast of The Big Bang Theory can get on with the business of portraying America's favorite eggheads (and one foxy, out-of-work actress), there is a customary ritual that always precedes the reading of the very first script of the season. It usually starts with a simple question: How did you spend your summer? Faster than you can bust out a Bazinga, details are shared in gleeful progression: Jim Parsons (Sheldon) became a Wimbledon groupie. Simon Helberg (Howard) nested at home with his second baby. Melissa Rauch (Bernadette) produced her first movie. Johnny Galecki (Leonard) jetted to Prague, Kunal Nayyar »
Burton has long been attracted to characters who are dreamers, marginalized by society – from his biopic on Ed Wood to Edward Scissorhands and Willy Wonka – Burton loves turning the camera on the rebels. It’s no wonder he has found his latest project in the true tale of American artist Margaret Keane, whose saucer-eyed portraits of children were labelled as “kitsch” and became a 1960s art fad.
Keane’s story is not so simple. Margaret’s husband, Walter Keane (Waltz) took credit for all her work, claiming that no one buys “lady art.” Since Margaret (Adams) only signed her work using her last name, Walter was able to dupe the public into believing he was the master behind the art for years, catapulting him to international fame. »

I've been diving back into Tim Burton's filmography as of late in preparation for this winter's "Big Eyes." The film will tell the story of artist Margaret Keane (Amy Adams), who build an empire with her husband Walter (Christoph Waltz) on the little white lie that he was the one responsible for her popular images of children with, well, big eyes. They would simply sell better if considered a dude's work, you see. What I've been struck by — not that it isn't an obvious trajectory for Burton's career that many have observed — is how alive his art was prior to an early-to-mid aughts decline that has left us with products like "Alice in Wonderland" and "Planet of the Apes" and "Dark Shadows." Films like "Ed Wood" and "Edward Scissorhands" and "Beetle Juice" pop with vision and vigor, whereas so much of his work as of late seems to wear »

In a development that feels more inevitable than surprising, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass are in talks to get back into the Bourne business. The two had sent mixed messages over the years, ever since Jason Bourne disappeared in the murky East River at the end of The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007, with the major roadblock being Damon’s insistence that a reluctant Greenglass direct, while Universal handed the franchise over to writer-turned-director Tony Gilroy. But with Gilroy’s Bourne Legacy, starring Jeremy Renner, failing to live up to the original three Bourne films at the box office, and Damon’s recent non-Bourne projects, »

Johnny Depp has made quite a name for himself portraying larger-than-life characters over the years, ones like Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, the Mad Hatter and, oh yeah, Captain Jack Sparrow. But his last two films, Disney’s The Lone Ranger and science fiction drama Transcendence, were pretty much universally panned by critics and barely managed to make back their production budget, leaving many fans wondering what would happen to Depp’s career.
Well, the actor’s next big film is this winter’s musical fantasy Into the Woods, where he’ll be playing the big bad wolf in what looks to be an intriguing adaptation of the popular Broadway show. Then of course there’s the sequel to Alice in Wonderland, recently titled Through the Looking Glass, releasing in 2016, and Pirates of ...

Suburban Gothic is director Richard Bates Jr's second film following Excision, his gruesome horror about a disturbed teen's mental state. Suburban Gothic, however, trades in most of the blood and grisly scenes of Excision for more humour while retaining Bates's trademark character moments and dialogues.
There's surely more room for genre comedies like Ghostbusters, but the gaps in between releases in that genre can almost be measured in decades, and it has to be said that many of them aren't particularly good: for every Spaceballs there's a The Creature Wasn't Nice (obscure reference − look it up), and for every Princess Bride there's a Your Highness. Luckily, we sometimes get a few good ones in a row, such as Zombieland, Shaun Of The Dead, and Tucker And Dale Vs Evil.

The Important News Last weekend at Comic-Con, we got first wind of the following announcements: The King of the Monsters will be joined by three fan favorite creatures in Godzilla 2. If that's not enough giant beasts, Universal is also making a King Kong prequel set on and titled Skull Island. The main cast of Ant-Man and their characters -- including Evangeline Lilly as the Wasp -- were revealed during the Marvel Studios panel. Oscar winner Chris Terrio (Argo), who is scripting Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, will continue his work for the DC movies with Justice League. Edward Scissorhands is getting a sequel in comic book form. So is Django Unchained, and he teams up with Zorro. So is Galaxy Quest, and there might be a movie sequel, too. Also...
