2016 is looking to be a big year for Paul Gulacy, with the long-awaited reprinting of his groundbreaking Master of Kung Fu series and as a guest of Honor at the San Diego Comic-Con. But in some ways every year is a big year for Paul. He’s a tireless workhorse who is always creating and producing gorgeous artwork. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Paul on a few projects (please don’t ask about the Lady Gaga thing) and it’s always been enjoyable and invigorating. This interview is no exception. As you’ll see, Paul is witty and wistful and, as always, honest and authentic. He’s the real deal.
Ed Catto: Marvel has announced that the trademark and licensing rights to Master of Kung Fu have been resolved and they are finally reprinting the series. How do you feel about that and how do you feel »

When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters this March, it will not only be the first time that Batman (Ben Affleck) and Superman (Henry Cavill) are seen on the big screen together, it will also mark a unique collaboration between two beloved composers. Way back in November 2014, it was confirmed that Hans Zimmer and Tom Holkenberg, best known as Junkie Xl, will both work on the score. Hans Zimmer will be crafting the Superman theme while Junkie Xl will work on the music for Batman. Last night, Junkie Xl posted a cryptic Facebook message, which some fans thought meant he would also be providing the score for Wonder Woman, but the composer clarified on his Twitter page that he will not be scoring this movie.
Last month, The CW Network announced a new special airing on Tuesday, January 19 which will offer fans a sneak peek at some of Warner Bros.' new slate of DC Comics movies. Part of this special included a sneak peek at Wonder Woman, which has been in production since November and is set for release on June 23, 2017. Now that the special has aired, we have the full sneak peek right here for you to watch over and over again.
This special gave fans never-before-seen footage, and interviews with such stars as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, and directors Zack Snyder and Patty Jenkins - just a few of the creative forces behind the much-anticipated film franchise that will bring together the greatest collective of Super Heroes in the upcoming Justice League feature film. And because no Super Hero could make his or her mark without a truly formidable foe, »
We know that Diana Prince, aka Wonder Woman, will finally enter the DC movie universe as a supporting player in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opens in theaters on March 25. She will take center stage in Wonder Woman, which is currently filming under the direction of Patty Jenkins (Monster). What do we know about the movie so far? We know that Gal Godot will star in the titular role. The Israeli model turned actress made a notable impression in the Fast and Furious movies. In the DC comics, the character, created during World War II, is a warrior princess of the Amazons and is known as Princess Diana of Themyscira in her homeland. She adapts a secret identity as Diana Prince. We know that the cast includes Chris Pine and other notable...

When Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hits theaters in just a few short months, it will introduce several characters in the expansive DC Comics Extended Universe (Dceu), including Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman. The actress is currently in production on her stand alone Wonder Woman movie, which has been shooting since November. Today we have even more photos from the set, which feature both Gal Gadot and Chris Pine in a World War I setting. The actress is also seen sporting her sword and shield, although she isn't in her Wonder Woman costume.
Chris Pine confirmed the World War I setting last month, and fans will be treated to a sneak peek of Wonder Woman during a new special on The CW Network which airs tomorrow, Tuesday, January 19 at 9:30 Pm Et. Since production is still under way, it seems unlikely that this will be a full trailer, but »
The Broadcast Film Critics Association handed out their Critics’ Choice Awards last evening in Los Angeles and is the first awards ceremony since the Academy released their official nominations last Thursday.
Those looking to the Critics’ Choice Awards in hopes of fleshing out their Oscar predictions will notice a few differences between last week’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s awards in the major categories. Most notably is the fact that Spotlight won best picture after being entirely shut out by the HFPA at the Globes.
Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant), Sylvester Stallone (Creed), and Brie Larson (Room) all repeated their Globes success with acting wins, but Swedish actress Alicia Vikander (The Danish Girl) took home the best supporting actress award in lieu of Kate Winslet’s (Steve Jobs) win the week before.

Ever since Wonder Woman started production in November, the movie has been shrouded in secrecy, but we have seen a handful of photos and videos from the set. While the main cast members have been confirmed, some have wondered if the original Wonder Woman TV series star Lynda Carter would be involved in the production in some way. While promoting his new movie The Finest Hours, in theaters January 29, Chris Pine was asked if the actress would have a cameo role in the movie, but he wouldn't say one way or another.
"If I could tell you that, I wouldn't, but I can't."
Of course, it's possible he's being so secretive because the actress does in fact have a cameo in the movie, but she hasn't been spotted on the set yet and her appearance has not been confirmed. The production recently cast Connie Nielsen as Wonder Woman's mother, »
Production on Wonder Woman has been under way since November, with most of the major cast members in place before principal photography commenced. There is one important character from the comic books that hasn't been cast, but now it seems that role has been filled. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Danish actress Connie Nielsen has signed on to portray Hippolyta, ruling Queen of the Amazonians and mother of Gal Gadot's title character.
No details were revealed about how she is involved in the story, but last year a rumor surfaced that Wonder Woman will be set in three different time periods and settings. One of these settings is Diana's homeland of Themyscira, and it is rumored that the Italy portion of the shoot will be used for the Themyscira scenes. It was also recently confirmed that another setting is World War I, with the last setting being present day, »
Ever since production has been under way on Wonder Woman, we have only seen a few set photos featuring Gal Gadot as the title character and Chris Pine as her love interest, Steve Trevor. Even with the release of those photos, we haven't seen a ton from the set, but, while promoting his new film The Finest Hours, Chris Pine shed some new light on his character. Here's what he had to say in an interview with The Toronto Sun, where he confirmed the World War I setting.
"Steve Trevor is a rogue-ish, cynical realist who's seen the awful brutish nature of modern civilization. He's a worldly guy, a charming guy and it's going to be a great, fun film. There are some incredibly deep, interesting and morally relevant themes. Patty is just directing the daylights out of it. It's shot beautifully, feels so wonderfully period, but also has this wonderful pop sensibility. »
With the Oscar nominees less than a week away, the British Academy of Film and Television Awards, or BAFTA as they're more easily referred to, can often be a real indicator of where AMPAS might be headed come Thursday morning. It used to be that the British were quite idiosyncratic in their tastes, picking homegrown, grassroots produce like Fish Tank. Unfortunately recent years have seen even the Best British Film category taken a much more populist bent. Therefore, it's their taste in American films that can often be a huge indicator of what energy the British contingent might inject into their Oscar votes.
Eligibility rules can often cause an issue - Murtada gave a rundown of any possible hiccups the other day - but recent years have seen studios keen to align the two continents as much as possible, to avoid situations like Charlize Theron's Oscar-winning turn in Monster »
Kodak has unveiled a prototype of a new Super 8 camera as part of the company’s efforts to revive the 50-year old film format.
On display at CES in Las Vegas this week, the camera (pictured) “combines the classic features of a Super 8 with digital functionality,” Kodak said.
The camera unveiling is the first stage of Kodak’s ‘Super 8 Revival Initiative’ which Eastman Kodak chief executive Jeff Clarke described as “an ecosystem for film” that will include the launch of more cameras, film development services and post production tools.
The original Kodak Super 8 camera was introduced in 1965.
