Cover Art for Big Trouble in Little China #1

26 March 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The adventures of Jack Burton continue this June in Big Trouble in Little China #1, the first issue in a new series comic book series from the minds of John Carpenter and Eric Powell. Here’s a look at four covers for the first issue, along with details on what you can expect from the new story:

“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!

Why You’LL Love It: Eric Powell is a huge fan of Big Trouble In Little China, so the sense of humor and over-the-top action he »

Tsr Blog: ‘Non-Stop’ and Why It’s Safe for Movie Planes to Crash Again

7 March 2014 11:43 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Through films like Flightplan, Soul Plane, and White House Down, it has taken over a decade for Hollywood to arrive at Non-Stop.

Showing the vitality of Liam Neeson carrying a gun and a broken heart, Non-Stop recently gave the new action hero one of his biggest box office weekends so far. Involving an air marshal using a particular set of skills to hunt and kill someone threatening his plane (to paraphrase Taken), the film may seem like a generic Neeson actioner. But while his character might be a composite of previous roles, the anxiety he tackles within this film is fresh. Considering its box office success (and my mother’s intense experience in watching the movie), Non-Stop works efficiently as a thriller in 2014 because it provides viewers with imagery of in-flight chaos not seen since before 9/11. It is also the indication of a natural progression for how Hollywood films are »

Grindstone Entertainment Dives Into ‘Beyond Beyond’ (Exclusive)

7 March 2014 12:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Grindstone Entertainment has acquired North American rights to “Beyond Beyond,” Esben Toft Jacobsen’s animated adventure tale produced by Copenhagen Bombay.

Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release the toon this year on all media platforms.

Deal was unveiled March 7 at Lyon’s Cartoon Movie confab, where “Beyond” played on opening night.

“The wonderful animation style and the emotionally touching story is going to touch children and their family’s hearts,” said Stan Wertlieb, Grindstone Entertainment’s head of acquisitions. “Kids are enchanted by the unique characters.”

Sarita Christensen, the leading Danish animation production/distribution/sales shingle, said her team received offers from seven U.S. distributors. “Distributors have been drawn to ‘Beyond Beyond’ because it’s an original story,” said Christensen.

The exec added that Grindstone has already demonstrated its know-how in releasing foreign animated features in North America, notably “Little Brother, Big Trouble: A Christmas Adventure,” the lasted toon »

Animation Business in Scandinavia Entices Distributors Looking for Alternatives to U.S. Fare

28 February 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

All you need to do to measure the success of European animators is look at this year’s Oscar race: “Despicable Me 2,” co-directed by French toonsmith Pierre Coffin; and “Ernest & Celestine,” a France-Luxembourg-Belgium co-production, are nominated for animated feature, and shorts “Room on the Broom” (U.K.) and “Mr. Hublot” (Luxembourg-France) are also on the Academy score card.

But it’s Disney’s Oscar-nommed global blockbuster “Frozen” that’s tapping into one of the fastest-growing founts of global animation. Though the Mouse’s toon is U.S.-made, it cashes in on Scandinavian storytelling traditions, based on a Hans Christian Andersen tale and set in the fjords of the Arctic Circle, replete with trolls, an integral part of Scandi lore.

France and Belgium remain the leading producers of arthouse animated films, but Scandinavian toons are proving more and more appealing to independent distributors looking for an alternative to the sweeping fare backed by U. »

The Voice Leo Ihenacho: 'It's easy to get sidetracked with Kylie'

21 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Voice star Leo Ihenacho has admitted that it's easy to get distracted when he's working with Kylie Minogue.

Ihenacho joined Minogue's team earlier this series, with the pair exchanging some flirtatious banter.

The Voice Leo Ihenacho: 'I don't think the battle rounds are fair'

The Voice Leo on Mike Skinner spat: His head's not in the right place

He has now told Digital Spy that it can be a surreal experience working with the former Neighbours star.

"There's a period during rehearsals for the show when you're supposed to be focusing on the song we're supposed to be singing, and she's talking and you're thinking to yourself, 'That's Kylie!'" he joked. "Do you remember the days when Neighbours used to be on at 1.30pm? It used to be on really, really early and I used to rush home to watch Charlene.

The Lackluster Apocalypse: Why Resident Evil Is In Big Trouble

30 January 2014 9:59 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

You know, there was a time, about 15 years ago, when this whole Resident Evil idea was pretty damn exciting. Sure, Alone in the Dark had already pioneered the survival horror thing, but it was Resident Evil that had ironed out its kinks and presented it to the mainstream in a package which they would hopelessly devour like the ravenous creatures that they were.

That’s the gamers that we’re talking about.

In any case, this series used to be something that was really exciting. The first entry was a breakthrough hit for Capcom. Resident Evil 2 was a perfect sequel, one that learned real and valid lessons from the mistakes of its predecessor. Like a path of evolution, RE2 improved on its predecessor in every conceivable way, and some inconceivable ones to boot.

This is where the trouble started. The next four games in the series canon: Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil: Code Veronica, »

“Orphan Black” Star Jordan Gavaris on Going Deeper With Felix

15 January 2014 12:03 PM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

BBC America’s Orphan Black seemed to come out of nowhere last year, with little fanfare or advance publicity, and yet it went on to build a rabid fanbase largely on word of mouth. The series, which returns for a second season this April, follows a woman named Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) who finds out she is part of a genetics project and soon crosses paths with many of her clones (all played brilliantly by Maslany). Of particular interest for Lgbt audiences is Sarah’s gay foster brother Felix played by actor Jordan Gavaris. We caught up with Gavaris at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour to ask him about the success of the show, working opposite Maslany and what we can expect for fan favorite Felix in Season 2.
