Early Look at the Cover Art for Big Trouble in Little China #9

25 November 2014 4:49 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Yep, ol’ Jack Burton’s been paying his dues in John Carpenter and Eric Powell’s Big Trouble in Little China comic book series from Boom! Studios, and you can rest assured that the check is in the mail, pal. But even though Jack and his faithful friends have been through hell doesn’t mean they’re out of danger yet, as shown in our early look at the cover art for issue #9 that’s set to hit shelves in February.

“Why We Love It: Big Trouble In Little China is one of our favorite cult-classic films because it mashed together ’80s action and supernatural fantasy movies with ’70s kung-fu flicks. This is the first time any new Big Trouble stories have been officially told, and we have the film’s original director, John Carpenter, working with Eric Powell (The Goon) on the story. You can’t beat that!

Sony Optioning Robin Hood Script For Robin Hood Franchise

7 October 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

This is Tom Riley who played Robin Hood on an episode of Dr. Who last month.

Is there ever a bad morning to listen to Whistle Stop?

No. No there is not.

Sony has optioned a Robin Hood script called Hood by Cory Goodman (writer of the Paul Bettany Priest) and Jeremy Lott (wrote as-yet-unmade The Falling with Zac Efron attached) for seven figures. The actual reported amount by THR is $1 million against $2 million but with no producers onboard yet, so...the point is it's a lot of money for a script about Robin Hood.

Why is Sony paying so much for this script? It's a Mission Impossible meets Fast and Furious (read: mystery/heist plot with action beats) that establishes Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck, and Will Scarlet as existing in their own cinematic mega franchise universe. Yes, I'm talking about solo movies called ridiculous things like "The Tuck Chronicles" or "Little John, »

Good ol’ Jack Burton wouldn’t be himself if he didn’t have a target on his back, but he’s not the only one hunted in the seventh issue of John Carpenter and Eric Powell’s Big Trouble in Little China comic book series, as Egg Shen and Miao Yin face the wrath of the Seven-Faced Widow, while Jack and Wang Chi strive to survive The Lords of Death.

Continuing through our month-long series of sci-fi comedies, Cargill and I decide to take a few cues from good ol’ Jack Burton. So this week, we’re broadcasting from our own Porkchop Express and talking to anyone who’s listening about the triumphant weirdness of John Carpenter’s Big Trouble in Little China. Now we aren’t saying we’ve been everywhere and seen every film, but we do know Big Trouble is a pretty amazing flick and a man would have to be some kind of fool to believe we’re all alone in that opinion.

10 Fatal Errors That Tna Has Made

6 August 2014 2:02 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Tna.com

Tna is in trouble. Big trouble. The company may not survive past October when their contract runs up with Spike TV. They have a few international deals still going for them, but the cash they’re bringing in from that isn’t likely to help them stay afloat. They could be sunk. It’s not clear whether Spike and Tna are still in honest negotiations, which means Dixie Carter’s biggest income source could soon dump them for more reruns of C.O.P.S (or something else equally as cheap!).

At the end of the day, Dixie has no one to blame but herself. She was given tens of millions of dollars from her billionaire parents to run a wrestling organization, and she slowly ran it into the ground. Far more competent companies like Roh would have killed for the chance to land on Spike TV and »

New 'Big Trouble in Little China' comic book: Read the first six pages -- Exclusive

27 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

John Carpenter’s 1986 kung fu fantasy masterpiece Big Trouble in Little China was a flop when it was first released, but a long life on home video helped foster a retroactive appreciation for star Kurt Russell’s fast-talking Jack Burton and the style with which Carpenter delivers his crazy tale. It is now a bona fide cult classic, and it is getting resurrected in comic book form.

Beginning with the first issue on June 4, Boom! Studios will be rolling out Big Trouble in Little China, the new comic book series co-written by Eric Powell (creator of the awesome series The Goon) and Carpenter, »

A Lazy Space Delivery Guy Becomes Big Trouble In This Stellar Animated Short Film

12 May 2014 3:01 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Why Watch? In the future, being a delivery guy is unbelievably easy. The ship flies itself, you can land at the press of a button and most of the packages are larger than microscopic. This short film from Kyungmin Woo is a delightful triumph of cartoon violence and a Twilight Zone-style hook that’s played upfront for laughs instead of held back for a dramatic twist. It’s especially appropriate for this week’s release of Godzilla and especially entertaining for anyone who wants to punt the minions from Despicable Me into the sun. JohnnyExpress is brilliant for its nihilism, its slapstick simplicity and the sweet dramatic irony of what the entire situation must have looked like to our anti-hero. The animation is rich and layered, but the real standout is a chase sequences where an alien tries to steal a bicycle and a car — the timing is comic perfection. It »
