'Borderlands' Movie Happening with 'Spider-Man' Producers

28 August 2015 12:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Lionsgate, a premier next generation global content leader, is teaming with the publisher and creators of Borderlands, and renowned producers Avi Arad and Ari Arad to adapt Gearbox Software's critically-acclaimed blockbuster video game Borderlands into a tent-pole feature film, the parties announced today. Borderlands is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game created and developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K, a wholly owned label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc.

The award-winning Borderlands franchise has been lauded by critics and over the years has built a passionate global fan base, shipping more than 26 million copies around the world since its launch in 2009, including 8 million copies shipped during Take Two's fiscal year 2015 alone. Set in the frontier of a sci-fi universe, Borderlands is best known for Gearbox's blending of irreverent humor and characters, with a unique comic-book art style, and co-operative four-player genre-bending, loot-grabbing gameplay. It's a franchise that »

28 August 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Lionsgate is developing a movie based on the popular video game series “Borderlands,” the studio announced Friday. Producers Avi and Ari Arad have been chosen to adapt Gearbox Software’s critically-acclaimed blockbuster video game into a tent-pole feature film. The father/son team is responsible for some of the most successful motion picture and television franchises in history, including “Iron Man,” “Spider Man,” “The Amazing Spider Man,” “X-Men” and “Blade.” Borderlands is an action role-playing first-person shooter video game created and developed by Gearbox Software, but published by 2K, a wholly owned label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. Set in the frontier of a sci-fi. »

Borderlands the game to become Borderlands the movie

28 August 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Borderlands video game franchise is set to become the Borderlands film franchise after a deal between producers Avi and Ari Arad and studio Lionsgate.

Gearbox Software and Take-Two Interactive's Borderlands games have sold upwards of 26 million copies and have been critically acclaimed.

The Mad Max-like games are "role-playing shooters" that see players running-and-gunning around the planet of Pandora, fighting crazed cultists and hunting for loot.

As a combination of a western and a sci-fi, this won't be a cheap production, but with titles such as Spider-Man and X-Men in their previous production portfolio, the Arads should be fine.

Avi Arad is also currently producing two other big adaptations, one from another video game, Uncharted, another, Ghost in the Shell, from a Japanese manga.

The news comes a day after another game-to-film project - Assassin's Creed - showed its first image of Michael Fassbender in the lead role.

‘Borderlands’ Videogame Movie in Works at Lionsgate

28 August 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate is developing a tentpole movie based on the videogame “Borderlands,” with producers Avi and Ari Arad.

“Borderlands,” launched in 2009, is a role-playing first-person shooter videogame created and developed by Gearbox Software and published by Take-Two Interactive Software’s 2K label. More than 26 million copies of the game have been shipped worldwide, including 8 million during Take-Two’s 2015 fiscal year, which ended March 31.

The game is set on the frontier of a sci-fi universe — the planet of Pandora — which has been abandoned by a mega-corporation prior to the game events.

Avi Arad and his son Ari Arad have been involved in the creation of the film franchises for Iron Man, Spider Man, The Amazing Spider Man, X-Men, Ghost Rider and Blade.

Lionsgate made a major push last year into videogames when it named Nerdist Industries CEO Peter Levin as president of interactive ventures and games.

Spectre's Léa Seydoux Offered Gambit's Female Lead

24 August 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After a batch of potential names emerged a while ago for a key role opposite Channing Tatum in Fox’s Gambit film, it appears we have a front-runner. Léa Seydoux has been offered the part of Belladonna Bourdreaux. Tatum is realising his long-held ambition to play the smooth-talking, kinetic energy-utilising X-Men rogue better known as Remy LeBeau, with Rupert Wyatt on board to direct and Josh Zetumer writing the script based on a treatment from comic book stalwart Chris Claremont. Though this is planned as a stand-alone film and, in Tatum’s opinion, should present a twist on the usual superhero outing – since Gambit’s hardly a by-the-book kind of man – there’s every chance his character will end up meeting his future X-Men colleagues at some point down the line. And, assuming she makes a deal, Seydoux will be Bourdreaux, a long-time friend and love-interest for Gambit, who is »

No Sweet Science To Be Found in Ron Wilson’s ‘Super Boxers’

23 August 2015 6:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Marvel Graphic Novel #8: Super Boxers (1983)

Plot and Pencils by Ron Wilson

Script by John Byrne

Inks by Armando Gil

Colors by Bob Sharen, Steve Oliff, John Tartaglione, Joe D’Esposito & Mark Bright

Published by Marvel Comics

Among some comic reviewers, there’s an understanding that you don’t talk about the cover of the comic that you’re writing about. It’s tied into that old saying “don’t judge a book by its cover” and it would be a bit like critiquing a movie based on the movie poster in the theater lobby. One is completely separate from the other.

All of that said, the best thing about Ron Wilson’s 1983 graphic novel Super Boxers is Bill Sienkiewicz’s awesome cover.

The official title of the publication is Marvel® Graphic Novel No. 8: Super Boxers. Marvel’s then still young graphic novel line had already produced a number »

10 Must-Read X-Men Storylines

18 August 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Comics

Although The Avengers seem like the greatest group of superheroes in comic book history due to the success of the McU, for many comic book fans the X-Men are still the biggest, baddest and best team to ever battle villains in the Marvel Universe.

Acclaimed comic book writers like Chris Claremont, Brian Michael Bendis and Grant Morrison have all crafted intense, action-packed stories with a strong emphasis on family, using fan favourite characters like Professor X, Wolverine, Cyclops and Jean Grey in different yet exciting ways.

However, despite the talented group of mutants having some of the best stories in comic book history, it’s well known that the X-Men timeline is about as convoluted and confusing as anything you’ll ever read.

If you still want to delve into the deep history of the X-Men, but feel slightly put off by the years and years of back »

‘Ultimate Marvel Team-Up’ #2-3 introduces Hulk in a fun, uneven way

16 August 2015 5:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A Bendis conversation at its finest.

Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #2-3 (2001)

Written by Brian Michael Bendis

Penciled by Phil Hester

Inked by Ande Parks

Colored by Jc

Published by Marvel Comics

In comparison to last issue of Ultimate Marvel Team-Up, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up #2-3 fits much more seamlessly with its parent title, Ultimate Spider-Man. It opens an extended opening scene set inside the Daily Bugle where editors J. Jonah Jameson and Robbie Robertson have a Sorkin-esque walk and talk conversation about how to cover the “mutant problem” while Ben Urich has just received a tip that a “green montrosity” is on its way to New York. Of course, it’s the Hulk, and the rest of the story isn’t concerned with the possibly fascinating topic journalism in the Ultimate Marvel Universe, but big splash pages, smashing, and Spider-Man coming to grips with fighting an unbeatable foe. Sadly, writer Brian Michael Bendis »

Trailer Trashin': Breaking Down the Deadpool Red Band Trailer

14 August 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Hello again, dear readers, and I hope you all avoided Fantastic Four like the plague this past weekend. On that topic, this is three weeks in a row that I’ve covered a comic book movie here on Trailer Trashin’. Now let’s dive into the new red band trailer for Deadpool.

Premise: In an attempt to cure his terminal cancer, former special forces operative Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds) is subjected to an experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, disfigured skin, and a dark and twisted sense of humor. Armed with new abilities and a new identity as “Deadpool,” Wilson hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.

Note: This is a red band trailer, which means it can only play in theaters with R-rated movies, and therefore is not appropriate for those under the age of seventeen. This trailer contains tons of violence, plenty of blood and gore, »

Lego Ideas proposal for Stan Lee bust

11 August 2015 2:26 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Check out the latest proposal for the Lego Ideas initiative – a 649 piece bust of Marvel legend Stan Lee, which has been proposed by Johnathan1986 and needs your support if its to gather enough votes for Lego to consider it for manufacture.

Stan Lee is an American comic book writer, editor, publisher, media producer, television host, actor, and former president and chairman of Marvel Comics.

In collaboration with several artists, including Jack Kirby and Steve Ditkko, he co-created Spider-Man, the Hulk, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Thor, the X-Men, and many other fictional characters. In addition, he headed the first major successful challenge to the industry’s censorship organization, the Comics Code Authority, and forced it to reform its policies. Lee subsequently led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.

He was inducted into the comic book industry’s Will Eisner »

‘Ultimate X-Men #4-6- Cyclops, Politics, and the Kubert Bros

9 August 2015 2:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ultimate X-Men #4-6 (2001)

Written by Mark Millar

Penciled by Adam Kubert (4), Andy Kubert (5-6)

Inked by Art Thibert (4), Danny Miki (5-6),  Joe Weems (5)

Colored by Richard Isanove

Published by Marvel Comics

In Ultimate X-Men #4-6, writer Mark Millar and artists Adam Kubert and Andy Kubert continue to amp up the action with a pair of Sentinel assaults in the final two chapters while also giving Cyclops, Quicksilver, and Wolverine much needed character development. Millar continues to portray Magneto as the mutant Hitler (Cyclops even invokes Godwin’s Law in a “father/son” chat with him.), but his work with Xavier is slimy as well. Sure, he seems like a good guy, but he messes with Cyclops’ brain chemistry to try to get him not leave the team and concludes the “Tomorrow People” arc with Ming the Merciless-type stare while revealing he has a secret plan that might involve Wolverine. »

Bob Hoskins' Wolverine, Will Smith's Superman and the other superhero films that might have been

9 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Over the last week, it looked like the Lynchian fever dream of a Gambit film might not come to pass, with star (and producer) Channing Tatum apparently on the brink of exiting the X-Men spinoff.

It turns out Tatum is still on board, but the incident got us thinking of some other superhero castings that nearly were but never will be:

(Nb Please take it as read that Jude Law was considered for all of these roles.)

Wolverine

Hugh Jackman has become so synonymous with the iconic X-Man that it's strange to think of anyone else taking on the role (even if they inevitably will). But before he had been cast, Russell Crowe was considered to play the angry Canadian mutant, and is credited with directing Bryan Singer's attention towards his fellow Aussie.

A-list hopeful Dougray Scott came even closer, and was actually cast in the role before shooting on Mission: Impossible 2 overran, »

Hollywood Can’t Seem to Crack Marvel’s ‘Fantastic Four’

7 August 2015 5:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For years, the Fantastic Four immodestly bore the title “The World’s Greatest Comic Magazine.” Introduced in 1961, the title ushered in the age of Marvel Comics, inaugurating the creative explosion of writer Stan Lee and artist Jack Kirby, which has been compared in musical terms to John Lennon and Paul McCartney during the Beatles’ heyday.

All of that makes the rather tortured history of the franchise onscreen, especially given the current ascent of comicbook blockbusters, all the more perplexing — most recently with Fox’s reboot “Fantastic Four,” which comes eight years after the last live-action “Fantastic Four” effort, a sequel subtitled “Rise of the Silver Surfer.”

Not only has the newest project been bludgeoned by critics, but the director, Josh Trank, responded by implying that the studio, 20th Century Fox, was responsible for its failings. Whatever the underlying truth, for comicbook fans it raises the specter of the bad old days, »
