Michael Fassbender says Alien: Covenant is “much scarier than Prometheus”

28 July 2016 8:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With filming wrapping last week, Ridley Scott is now starting the post-production phase of Alien: Covenant, his third venture into the Alien universe after the 1979 sci-fi classic and 2012’s Prometheus. During an interview with Collider, returning star Michael Fassbender has been speaking about the new film, describing it as “much scarier than Prometheus.”

“This Alien is going to be… I’m very excited to see it and everybody in the film was saying this is a film that we all want to see,” states Fassbender. “It’s much scarier than Prometheus, but it’s got the same sort of scope of Prometheus. It’s kind of got more of thriller, imminent disaster feel that Alien had, so it’s kind of a beautiful meeting of both of those films. I’m really excited to see it, I think it’s gonna be super scary number one and then again with the massive scope of Prometheus… »

3-Minute Supercut Details Zack Snyder’s ‘Watchmen’ Adaptation From Comic To Screen

26 July 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Like it or not, Zack Snyder has got a thing for comics and has made it his habit of bringing iconic properties to the screen. He’s essentially banked his career on them, with “300,” “Watchmen,” “Man Of Steel,” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice” all coming from comic book origins (to be fair he’s […]

Batman: The Killing Joke Review

26 July 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since his comic book debut in 1939, Batman has emerged as one of the most culturally relevant and beloved superhero characters of all time. His adventures have spanned films, animated series, video games and assorted other multimedia platforms that have expanded his popularity to virtually every demographic, and accordingly, Gotham City has been reimagined as everything from the “Bam! Pow!” campiness of the 1960s TV series to the brooding Dark Knight trilogy. Yet, despite the Caped Crusader’s ubiquity across popular culture, few of his stories have become as controversial as Batman: The Killing Joke.

The 1988 one-shot graphic novel — written by Watchmen genius Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bolland — attempts to shed some light on the Joker’s mysterious past, exploring the very concept of what could lead a person to madness. For years, the possibility of an animated adaptation seemed like nothing short of a pipe dream, especially »

DVD Review – Reckless (2015)

25 July 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Reckless, 2015.

Directed by Mora Stephens.

Starring Patrick Wilson, Ray Winstone, Lena Headey, Richard Dreyfuss, John Cho, Alexandra Breckenridge, Christopher McDonald and Dianna Agron.

Synopsis:

A successful family man with a blossoming political career loses all sense of morality when he becomes addicted to using an escort agency.

Thankfully changed from its original title of Zipper, Reckless is the type of film you’ve seen dozens of times before with titles such as Shame, Indecent Proposal or even Fatal Attraction (although that one goes off in another direction but the core story shares many themes) and that will be the one thing that will stop this film being bigger than it probably should be because, despite it holding very few surprises, it is actually a fairly well put together drama with a central story that most viewing audiences could relate to, albeit one with a few flaws.

Marvel v DC: Who Walked Away the Bigger Hero at Comic-Con?

24 July 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Diego — With both Warner Bros. and Marvel Studios slated for panel time in the San Diego Convention Center Saturday for this year’s Comic-Con, sparks were sure to fly as the two superhero heavies revealed looks at the next phases in their quests to conquer the pop culture world. But who left the biggest mark on the geek masses?

WB was first out of the gate and, unlike in years past, led with the DC material. Other tentpoles like “Kong: Skull Island” and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” were held for the back stretch.

Conan O’Brien moderated the event, which went nearly 30 minutes past its scheduled two hours and began with thoughts from the five directors behind DC’s upcoming slate: Zack Snyder (“Justice League”), Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”), Rick Famuyiwa (“The Flash”), James Wan (“Aquaman”) and Ben Affleck (“Batman”).

Things then transitioned to the first »

Danny McBride shows off the cockpit in Alien: Covenant behind-the-scenes photo

22 July 2016 10:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

To celebrate the end of production on Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant, star Danny McBride took to Instagram to share a photo of himself on set. In the film, McBride portrays a pilot, so it’s only fitting that the posted picture features the actor in his ship’s cockpit, sporting a space cowboy look. The snapshot was accompanied by a caption that read, “That’s a wrap on #aliencovenant. Ridley is going to scare the shit out of you.” See it here…

Of course, the actor is best known for his comedic work in such films and TV shows as Pineapple Express, This is the End, Eastbound and Down and Vice Principals (which premiered on HBO last week), so Covenant will certainly be new territory for McBride, as it brings him into a darker and more horror-infused environment. 

Lastly, the first behind-the-scenes photo from Alien: Covenant showing »

Comic Review: The Berzerk Death Dealer

22 July 2016 1:31 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Over the last few years I’ve grown such a huge admiration for horror comics. It was a genre I wasn’t too familiar with aside from a few Tales From The Crypt issues that found their way into my chubby hands when I was a kid. For a long time there, it seemed like comics were mere products of geek culture, but the onslaught of mainstream comic book adaptations (mainly thanks to Marvel) have popularized the medium and drawn in several demographics. As an adult, my horror comic fascination started with Scott Snyder’s Severed and his American Vampire series. These comics have big name collaborations (Stephen King!) and even draw large crowds at conventions. This past year, I waited six hours in line at C2E2 to meet Snyder, but it was completely worth it. The selection of horror comics, however, isn’t too big so I scram »

One month out from its anticipated premiere, Amazon Studios has today peeled back the curtain on The Tick, its long-rumored comedy reboot that thrusts Peter Serafinowicz (Guardians of the Galaxy) into the title role.

An official synopsis for The Tick was released alongside today’s batch of stills, and you can have a gander at it below.

First Official Look At Peter Serafinowicz As The Tick In Amazon's Reboot Of The Superhero Comedy

21 July 2016 7:52 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Amazon has officially announced that the premiere date for their take on The Tick will be August 19, and they've also released a few images from the show, giving us a first look at Peter Serafinowicz as the do-gooder of the title. Fans were not best pleased when they found out Patrick Warburton wouldn't be returning after doing such a great job as Fox's short-lived take on the beloved character, but Serafinowicz has become quite the geek-icon in his own right so there shouldn't be too many complaints. We also have an updated synopsis which you can check out below.

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with Alien: Covenant, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Tuesday, July 19th doesn’t boast a ton of new home entertainment choices for genre fans, but as the saying goes, sometimes it’s quality over quantity, and there are a few releases to be more than excited for.

Mill Creek has two William Castle double features arriving on Blu-ray this week, and Warner Home Video is giving Watchmen the 4K Ultra HD treatment with their new release of The Ultimate Cut, which I know a lot of fans have been looking forward to for a while now.
