'Guardians of the Galaxy' screenwriter talks cosmic passions and the Marvel experience

23 July 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hollywood — You might not have heard the name Nicole Perlman much as it pertains to Marvel properties, but she's a big reason why "Guardians of the Galaxy" will be making its way to theaters next weekend. She toiled away as a screenwriter for a few years after her days at Nyu, cooking up projects with a science bent because that's where her passions lie — projects like "Challenger," a fascinating account of the investigation of the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster written as a love letter to Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman. Then, she made her way to the comic book giant under the company's now-defunct screenwriting program and plucked the intergalactic heroes from obscurity, setting them on a crash course for the silver screen. It may be largely James Gunn's colorful vision on that screen, but it's definitely Perlman's passion that helped bring the property to the table in the first place. »

Possible 'Guardians' Credits Leak Reveal Amazing Cameos

17 July 2014 12:42 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Nathan Fillion isn't Nova.

Good to know.

How did we hear that this time? The website Stitch Kingdom claims to have gotten a complete credits list for Guardians of the Galaxy that reveals the Marvel Universe cameos notable celebrities (and James Gunn himself) will appear as:

Stan Lee will have his customary cameo, this time as the ‘Xandarian Ladies’ Man;’ browncoat favorite Nathan Fillion will be dolled up as ‘Monstrous Inmate;’ musician Rob Zombie lends his voice as the ‘Ravager Navigator Voice;’ and writer/director James Gunn himself will appear in the film as one of the ‘Maskless Sakaaran.’

Also appearing in the film, though not a cameo, is actor Fred the dog who assumes the role of Cosmo.

But saving perhaps the best for last… we’re not exactly sure what it means yet — if anything — but while he couldn’t get himself a 25th anniversary Blu-ray (and not »

The Beautiful and the Damned Dirty Apes: A History of The Planet of The Apes

11 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Planet of The Apes movies occupy a curious netherworld of critical opinion. With each film, the budget was sawn in half, leading to a successive pattern of diminishing returns that led to a cheapening of its esteem. The spin-off TV show was quickly cancelled, further dulling the lustre and few people even remember the animated series that finally put the Apes to bed until a rude awakening in 2001.

However, for all their child-pleasing capers (the family-friendly G rating was a mandatory stipulation from the studios), the Apes movies deftly juggled important themes and arguments about slavery, free-will, nuclear war, vivisection, racism and oppression, and man’s innate capacity for cruelty. In pure storytelling terms, the circuitous plot links the first five movies (and the prequel Rise of The Planet of The Apes) into a pleasing, if relentlessly pessimistic, self-perpetuating full-circle.

Enormous box office successes in their early stages, they »

Human See, Human Do: A Complete History of 'Planet of the Apes'

1 July 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

A pop-culture touchstone, a nearly all-purpose metaphor and one of the most beloved sci-fi franchises of the Seventies and beyond, the Planet of the Apes films do what all good what-if fantasies should do: hold up a mirror to humanity and reflect our own conflicts, issues and failings back to us through a wildly outrageous premise. The original 1968 movie mixes satire, social commentary, action and suspense, capped by a first-rate twist at the end. ("Damn you, damn you all to hell!")

Marvelous DA7E #51: Marvel/Spider/DC Universe Roundup

20 June 2014 11:31 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Welcome to Issue 51 of The Marvelous DA7E!

What Is This? If this is your first time, know that Da7e is a crazy fan of comic book movie franchises. He's less a fan of coherent sentences. He thinks being a fan of something is the greatest way of loving it. 

This week: So much happened, let's speculate about our main 3 universes (sorry Fox, try harder)

Oh man, it feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve talked some superhero movie news and rumors. And there’s all this Star Wars stuff happening. While I often feel Bad Robot is laughing at me, I don't always feel that way about my Marvelous Speculations. I get my fandoms a little mixed up like a sweet-sweet cocktail. Other times I wonder if Disney is just my emotional counterpoint, gripping all the franchises I love in their Mickey Mouse gloves without really caring. »

Can 'Cosmos' Save Science Television?

31 March 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

With his nondescript blazers and mild manner, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is an unlikely radical. But make no mistake: in an age of evolution skeptics and climate change deniers, the defense of science he levies as the host of "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" is nothing short of revolutionary. Of course, a similarly grand sense of purpose accompanied Carl Sagan's "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage" when it premiered on PBS in 1980, eventually attracting 400 million viewers in 60 countries. That the iconic original resulted in no definitive triumph for factuality might lead the discerning critic to offer a more cautious assessment of the revamped "Cosmos," but its very existence -- in the midst of Sunday's packed primetime landscape, no less -- is a bold statement. We're here, we're peer-reviewed, get used to it! Beyond public television's old guard ("Nova" and "Nature" on PBS, "The Blue Planet" and "Planet Earth" on the BBC), much »

Arnold "Back" as Terminator(s), Paul Walker CGI/Body Doubles in Fast 7 , Marvel Spy Pics, Green Goblin Revealed

27 March 2014 6:34 AM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Terminator When Arnold Schwarzenegger says he'll be "back," you better believe him. Schwarzenegger has said for years that he would love to reprise the role of the Terminator and now he has revealed to MTV News that he will return to the role that made him famous in next year's Terminator: Genesis, possibly even as multiple iterations of the classic cyborg. Before you get all armchair geek on the news, let us remind you that this is the "Austrian Oak" we're talking about, so even in his '60s we're pretty sure he could crush your skull if he wanted to. And, as far as the whole robots-don't-age argument goes, well, let's just let Ahnuld explain:

The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath. It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. »

TV Review: PBS’ ‘The Story of the Jews,’ ‘Your Inner Fish’

24 March 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

PBS has acquired a patina of cool since “Downton Abbey” and “Sherlock” arrived, but public television can’t — and probably shouldn’t — shed its stodgy image. Cases in point are a pair of nonfiction series premiering within the next month, both centered around the stuffy, slightly ponderous form of the on-camera presenter: “The Story of the Jews,” Simon Schama’s five-hour dissertation on Jewish history; and “Your Inner Fish,” paleobiologist Neil Shubin’s three-part evolutionary trip through human DNA. Both have merit, but also feel like sort of doggedly pontificating exercises that practically dare viewers to sit through them, as opposed to inviting them in.

Already shown in the U.K., “Story of the Jews” is deeply personal, and too often profoundly dull. Part of that has to do with the amount of time Schama spends on screen — leisurely walking and talking, in soothingly sleep-inducing tones, through historic locales ­— approximating »

Marvelous Da7e #34: Hooked On A Feelin’ For ‘Guardians’ Toys!

19 February 2014 7:26 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Wowie-wow-wow, what a week for Guardians of the Galaxy!

We finally got our trailer last night and even if a lot of it was footage that had been shown at conventions, now everyone can share in the excitement that director James Gunn is fostering. Marvel’s doing a really good job here of rolling the Guardians out slowly – we haven’t even heard Vin Diesel’s Groot or Bradley Cooper’s Rocket – adding to this slow build of momentum that has to keep humming through the other summer movies. But come August 1st, it’s Guardians of the Galaxy time and it’s looking more and more like Marvel might have a hit on it’s hands because they chose to go with charisma over traditional ideas about what’s marketable.

On Friday I went up to mid-town Manhattan just outside Times Square and attended the Hasbro Toy Fair Preview, »

Noah

Darren Aronofsky's $130m Biblical epic arrives buffeted by Hurricane Sandy (which gatecrashed the production) and lashed by controversy (the director and studio have reportedly squabbled over the final cut). The omens are explosive and the anticipation is building. Russell Crowe looks on stentorian form as the pre-flood patriarch, reeling from portents of the apocalypse and determined to protect his wife (Jennifer Connelly), his adopted daughter (Emma Watson) and the animals of the world. But trouble is brewing; he's going to need a bigger boat. 28 March

Godzilla

British director Gareth Edwards scored a low-budget breakthrough with 2010's Monsters. Now he's surging up through the gears to tackle arguably the biggest beast of them all. His remastered Godzilla finds the behemoth battling man-made »
