Bruce Timm Wanted To Do The Man Of Steel Ending Before Man Of Steel Did

8 June 2015 2:11 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

I think it's fair to say Man of Steel is perhaps the most mixed superhero film of all time. There are fans who love it, fans who hate it, and fans who are mixed. The good was no doubt the actors and actresses cast in the film, the character designs, and the fight scenes. The bad really comes down to the script written by Blade 3 writer/director who Wesley Snipes nearly killed, David S Goyer. We all know how Man of Steel ends. Zod uses heat vision to try to kill a family while Superman has him in a headlock and to save the family, Superman snaps Zod's neck killing him. Fans were mixed by this. On one hand what else could Superman have done? On the other, why write Superman in a position where he has no choose? On a third hand, there is biggest problems in this film »

Review: Insidious: Chapter 3

3 June 2015 9:26 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

I am a fan of the Insidious series. The more horror movies I see, the more the the first two stand out in my head for being completely their own thing. They are movies willing to take chances and go 100% full on bonkers, and the fact that they are written by Leigh Whannell and directed by James Wan means they are expertly made on a technical level while still threatening to go completely off the rails in the best way. While Wan's The Conjuring is a very classical and well-made haunted house movie and probably going to become an all-timer, it's the Insidious movies I keep coming back to again and again. As studio horror goes, they're the best game in town.

Now here's Insidious Chapter 3, a prequel to the first two movies and the first in the series to be written and directed by Whannell -- his first time behind the camera. »

Michael Davis: The Problem With Jaden

27 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

With the possible exception of the Black Panther, no other black franchise has garnered as much “it’s going to be a major movie or TV show” hype within the fan rumor mill than Static Shock. Finally the Black Panther is going to happen. As for Static Shock … kinda.

In 2018 the Black Panther movie will be released from what is now the best superhero moviemaker bar none, Marvel Studios. Static will make his way to the Internet as part of Warner Bros’ Digital arm later this year.

I find that rather disappointing.

More than any other black property, Static pretty much already owns the Internet. The massive amount of love Static has on the net is nothing short of extraordinary. In the 22 years since Static burst on the scene the admiration for the character has only grown and at no point shows signs of waiving.

That’s simply remarkable and »

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen reboot in development at 20th Century Fox

27 May 2015 1:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

I’m not sure how Alan Moore will feel about this one (we can all make an educated guess) but this is one reboot that I definitely do want to see happen. According to The Tracking Board 20th Century Fox are keen to make a big screen adaptation reboot of one of Alan Moore’s best work to date, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Back in 2003 a feature film loosely based on the comic book series starring Sean Connery was considered a huge failure (even though it made a small profit) and was critically panned by movie and comic-book enthusiasts alike. In fact the movie got slated so badly that it’s the main reason cited why Connery retired from acting shortly after it’s release.

Directed by Stephen Norrington (Blade) and also starring Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), Stuart Townsend (Elementary) and Peta Wilson (La Femme Nikita), The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen »

Beyond Fright: Heist Gone Wrong Film 7 Minutes Gets Poster/Trailer/Release Date

22 May 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I don’t know about you fright fanatics, but I’m a massive fan of heist films. Dog Day Afternoon, Heat, and every other great entry into what can easily be one of the best intense genres around if done right. One film that seems to be a good contender into that kind of movie is Jay Martin’s 7 Minutes (hitting Theaters, VOD & iTunes June 26) . Having cut his teeth being the storyboard artist on films like The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Amazing Spiderman, I Am Legend, and Constantine, Martin made the transition to director,when helmed music videos for everyone from Cold War Kids and Deathcab For Cutie, to legendary rapper Nas.

It’s pretty obvious that Jay knows what he wants in front of the camera and how to get it and the heist film led by Luke Mitchell (TV’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L. »

100 Essential Action Scenes: One vs. Many Fights

21 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.    

You know an action hero is the baddest of badasses when he or she walks in and the room goes silent. The drug lord’s bodyguards, the mastermind’s henchmen, or even the foolhardy pack of drunkards outside a roadside bar stand at attention, ready for a challenge. It’s just one person. This shouldn’t be too hard. Seconds later, they’re on the ground nursing bruises, or worse, stumps where their arms and legs used to be. The One vs. Many Fight is the chance for the hero to prove »

8 TV shows based on horror movies -- and how they fared

12 May 2015 5:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the recent successes of such TV series as "American Horror Story," "Hannibal" and Showtime's "Penny Dreadful," horror is hot on the small-screen right now -- so much so that in addition to MTV's forthcoming small-screen "Scream" spinoff, TV studios are in the midst of bringing a horde of cinematic fright-film properties to television, ranging from "Shutter Island" to "The Devil's Advocate" to "The Mist." In light of this, I've taken a look back at eight previous horror movie-to-tv translations and analyzed why they hit -- or didn't -- with audiences. "Bates Motel" (A&E) Based on: "Psycho" Aired: 2013-present Why it did (or didn't) work:a great pedigree ("Lost" showrunner Carlton Cuse), a terrific cast (Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore) and generally positive critical notices gave "Bates Motel" a sheen of respectability that worked well in this Golden Age of prestige television. The show has so far aired three successful seasons »

NBC Bet On Wesley Snipes As ‘The Player’

10 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Amongst the slew of cancellations and green lights currently going on over at the Us networks, one infamous name has emerged with a smile on his face – Wesley Snipes.

He’ll be hitting small screens as The Player, a Vegas-based action drama from The Blacklist producers John Davis and John Fox, formerly known as Endgame. Filling out the “John” quota is writer John Rogers, who penned the pilot which has been given a series order.

The high concept premise sees Snipes’ security expert/action man caught in the ultimate high stakes situation – bringing down supercriminals as a shadowy and rich elite bet on the outcome. There’s a personal angle for the hero of course, as someone in the wealthy gambling pool is responsible for his wife’s death, and the supposed pawn is readying himself for a deadly strike.

Co-produced by Spooks: The Greater Good director Bharat Nalluri, the show will co-star Philip Winchester, »

Why 1998 Was the Best Year In Film History

27 April 2015 12:46 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Check here for a complete list of our essays. Just one glance at the Oscar nominees for 1998 might make it seem less a questionable choice for “best year in film” — and more an insane one.   Instead of a 1974 – The Godfather II, The Conversation, Chinatown, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, etc – or even a 1994, where Shawshank, Quiz Show, and Pulp Fiction lost to Gump – you choose a year where the Oscars would allow Roberto Benigni to climb atop both the figurative and literal chairs of the Shrine?   Fine, step away from the Oscars. Would you still celebrate a year that saw not one, but two movies about asteroids threatening the Earth?  A year that saw such scars carved across cinematic history as Patch Adams, My Giant, Stepmom, and Krippendorf’s Tribe?   It bears repeating: Krippendorf’S Tribe? »

Wally Wood Panel Recap

13 April 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

50 years ago, an artist named Wallace “Wally” Wood (or Woody to most people) changed Daredevil’s costume from his original yellow suit to the iconic red and black outfit he still wears to this day. (Even in the Daredevil Netflix show.) But Wally Wood did a lot more than redesign Daredevil and had a long career doing newspaper strips as well as horror and sci-fi books for EC Comics and humor for the immortal Mad. At East Coast Comicon, comic book artist and philanthropist J. David Spurlock, who co-founded the Wally Wood Scholarship Fund and co-wrote a biography of Wood, and veteran comics creators Larry Hama (G.I. Joe) and Bob Wiacek (Uncanny X-Men) swapped stories and chatted about Wood’s life, work, and legacy.

Larry Hama began the panel by saying he learned about Wally Wood during the mid-1960s through a friend at High School of Art and Design, »

Interview with Shawn Gabborin of Action Lab

5 April 2015 7:27 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Wednesday marked the release of the new Puppet Master series from Action Lab Entertainment. Puppet Master is based on the horror film series of the same name from Charles Band and production studio Full Moon Entertainment. Band’s film and Action Lab’s series focus on a group of puppets created by the mysterious Toulon and brought to life with an ancient Egyptian spell. Action Lab’s release marks the first Puppet Master comic since Eternity Comics’ mini-series in 1990. The new series is helmed by Action Lab founding member Shawn Gabborin, who you may remember from my earlier reviews of Snowed In and Victor Season.

I had an opportunity to talk with writer Shawn Gabborin this weekend at the fourth of his book signings. Gabborin was seated at a table inside New Dimension Comics when I walked in. After we shook hands and introduced ourselves, my first question for him was obvious. »

Stephen Dorff has landed the lead role in the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel.

Deadline reports that the Blade actor will play Hal Hartman in Leatherface, which centres around a violent teen who eventually becomes the title character.

The teen - played by EastEnders actor Sam Strike - escapes from a mental hospital and kidnaps a young nurse.

He and other escapees are then chased by an equally crazed lawman looking for revenge.

Written by Seth M Sherwood, the film will be directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, and is tipped for release in 2016.

Dorff most recently finished filming American Hero with Eddie Griffin and The Motel Life with Emile Hirsch and Dakota Fanning. »
