'Kingsman: The Golden Circle': What the Critics Are Saying

18 September 2017 4:41 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

If Kingsman: The Secret Service surprised viewers with its shameless, over-the-top take on James Bond tropes and comic book storytelling — the 2014 Matthew Vaughn movie was adapted from a comic by Mark Millar and Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons — then it might be heartening to know that Kingsman: The Golden Circle offers more of the same, and yet, somehow, delivered less for a lot of critics.

Hours after the reviews published, the Kingsman sequel claimed a 75 percent freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes and generally left reviewers content about the movie but generally unimpressed.

Sneak Peek footage, plus images from director Mike Flanagan's suspense thriller "Gerald's Game", starring Carla Gugino ("Watchmen") and Bruce Greenwood ("Star Trek Into Darkness"), airing on Netflix September 29, 2017:

"...'Jessie Burlingame' and her husband 'Gerald' are in the bedroom of their secluded cabin in western Maine, where they have gone for an off-beat romantic day off. Gerald, a successful lawyer with an aggressive personality, has been able to reinvigorate the couple's sex life by handcuffing Jessie to the bed.

"Jessie has been into the game before, but suddenly balks. She kicks Gerald in the stomach, he falls from the bed to the floor, cracks his head, has a heart attack, and quickly dies. Now Jessie is alone in the cabin, unable to move off the bed, or to summon help...before the voices in her head suddenly take over..."

Metal Gear Solid Movie: Eight Actors Who Could Play Solid Snake

14 September 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Liam Hoofe takes a look at potential actors for the highly anticipated Metal Gear Solid movie…

Jordan Vogt-Roberts, director of Kong: Skull Island, confirmed this month that he is committed to making the “truest, most balls to the wall, Metal Gear version” of Metal Gear Solid, the popular game franchise which looks finally set to get a big movie adaptation.

An adaptation of the successful video game series has been on Hollywood’s to-do list for years, and it makes a lot of sense. The game is one of the most cinematic of all time, with a complex narrative spanning decades and strong, detailed characters that really jump off the screen.

One thing that is essential to making the movie work, as with most video game adaptations, is making sure the main character is cast correctly. Solid Snake is one of the most iconic video game heroes of all time, »

Len Wein, Co-Creator of Swamp Thing and Wolverine, Has Passed Away

10 September 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

There's no doubt that the landscape of modern-day comics (and, by extension, comic book film adaptations) would not be quite what it is today without Len Wein, who co-created two of the most intriguing characters in comic book history. It is with heavy hearts, then, that we share the news of the innovative writer and editor's passing at the age of 69.

The news of Wein's passing comes from multiple sources, including DC Comics and Variety. The cause of death has not been announced, but fans of Wein who keep up on his Twitter account know that he has been undergoing surgeries in recent years, including getting a new heart valve in 2016.

After Wein began writing for DC Comics in the late 1960s, there was no looking back, as he went on to make his mark on comic book history by co-creating Swamp Thing with Bernie Wrightson (who also passed away »

In Memoriam: Len Wein 1948 - 2017

10 September 2017 7:06 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mike Cecchini Sep 11, 2017

Wolverine co-creator, Watchmen editor, and legendary comic book writer Len Wein has died at the age of 69.

Len Wein, the legendary co-creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing, as well as the editor who helped Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons bring Watchmen to life, has died at the age of 69.

Wein's career spanned decades and you can find his fingerprints all over the comics industry in addition to his two most famous creations. Shortly after he co-created Wolverine alongside John Romita Sr. and Roy Thomas, Wein, with artist Dave Cockrum, revived the previously failing X-Men in 1975 with the larger, more colorful lineup that launched the team to pop culture immortality. During his extended stay at Marvel Comics (including a year as editor-in-chief), Wein took a shot at writing many of Marvel's flagship books, including long (and fan favorite) runs on Marvel Team-Up and Amazing Spider-Man.

Horror Highlights: Maniac Cop 2 Collection from Cavitycolors, Aliens Ate My Homework, What The Waters Left Behind, The Tormenting

1 September 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Cavitycolors pays tribute to Maniac Cop 2 with a new shirts and pins collection, and in today's Horror Highlights, we also have details on Aliens Ate My HomeworkWhat the Waters Left Behind, and The Tormenting. 

Maniac Cop 2 Shirts and Pins Collection: From Cavitycolors: "Hey Fiends!

This Thursday, we're bringing you our officially licensed Maniac Cop 2 collection!

Written by Larry Cohen (The Stuff) and directed by William Lustig (Maniac), Part 2 of the series is my personal favorite entry in the series. A 90's cult classic in the truest sense, it's just so satisfying to see a much more monstrous Matt Cordell wreak havoc on the streets of New York City. We couldn't be more excited to work with top notch artists on this release, including Devon Whitehead, Jason Edmiston, Shane Murphy, and Matt Skiff. All art is officially licensed, and approved by William Lustig himself for what might »

First Look: Rorschach’s Moving Cover for DC’s ‘Doomsday Clock’

30 August 2017 12:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

DC Entertainment president Geoff Johns has shared the first look at the cover for the first issue of DC Comics upcoming “Doomsday Clock” event — and it features a moving image of Rorschach’s inkblot taking on the logos of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. “First Look! #DoomsdayClock #1 has what I think is the coolest lenticular cover ever,” tweeted Johns. The cover is a reused bit of Rorschach art from “Watchmen” co-creator Dave Gibbons, updated with the patterns on his mask shifting into the logos. First Look! #DoomsdayClock #1 has what I think is the coolest lenticular cover ever. Thank you, Dave! »

This Doomsday Clock #1 Lenticular Cover Featuring Rorschach Has To Be Seen To Be Believed

30 August 2017 11:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite blowing us away with one event that’s already kicked off in the form of Dark Nights: Metal (you can check out our five-star review for the first issue here), DC is more than ready to knock our socks off with yet another limited series, the ominously titled Doomsday Clock. Set to put characters from the DC Universe proper on a collision course with those from Watchmen, it’ll no doubt finally pay off the greater mysteries of the Rebirth era that have been tugging at our minds.

Since the book was announced back in May, the publisher has been somewhat mum regarding it, but a few more details were thankfully brought to light last month at San Diego Comic-Con. Basically, DC head honcho Geoff Johns reaffirmed that a confrontation involving Superman and Doctor Manhattan is coming, which may very well be the comic book battle of the century. »

Get A Better Look At Zack Snyder’s Wonder Woman Cameo With New Images

30 August 2017 10:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment in the movie itself, but you might remember that it was reported a while back that Zack Snyder had a cameo in Wonder Woman. Though he didn’t direct the film – that was Patty Jenkins – Snyder did receive a story and producer credit, so his input was repaid with a sneaky role in the titular hero’s solo outing.

For those who don’t know, the director played one of the soldiers present when Diana, Steve Trevor and their team arrive in a French village. Now, thanks to some new photos, you can get a closer look behind the scenes of Snyder’s cameo, courtesy of the DC Extended Universe Twitter account, which has shared screenshots of a featurette found on the home release of Wonder Woman. The shots see Snyder, decked out in his World War I military get-up, chatting with Patty Jenkins »

Batman and Flash Go Back to the Future in Flashpoint Fan Poster

25 August 2017 2:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Warner Bros. made a huge splash last month during San Diego Comic-Con when they revealed that The Flash solo movie is going to be titled Flashpoint. That means the movie is going to be adapting one of the most beloved and important stories in the history of DC Comics. It also just so happens to involve some crazy time travel nonsense and bares some similarities to Back to the Future, but with a much more gritty and serious tone. And superheroes. Even so, fan artists Samuel Cheve has taken it up on himself to make a poster for Flashpoint in the style of Back to the Future.

Samuel Cheve posted the Flashpoint poster to his Instagram, which faithfully recreates the famous Back to the Future 2 poster that features Marty McFly and Doc Brown standing next to the DeLorean with lightning all around. It works well for several reasons, but the »

Producer vs. Director: The Case of Zack Snyder

17 August 2017 9:14 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pim Razenberg on the debate on creative differences between producers and directors…

Creative differences. The clichéd answer to most break-ups between a studio and its directors. Recent examples of cases where “creative differences” were the cause of conflict are the departure of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller from the as-of-yet untitled Han Solo anthology film and the much discussed departure of Edgar Wright from Ant-Man. For a director to step up to direct a blockbuster movie means to take on the responsibility of turning a ton of money into tons of money. When such a blockbuster is meant to help shape a financially successful, Marvel-esque cinematic universe, the stakes are even higher. The look and feel of these movies have to fit within certain expectations and must not break the overlapping narrative of the cinematic universe. The level of financial risk involved to create a product audiences feel is worth paying for, »

James Cameron praises Alien: Covenant, calls it “beautiful”

15 August 2017 2:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Cameron has spoken well of Alien: Covenant, calling it a “beautiful” film.

Ridley Scott’s latest effort in the iconic Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant, hasn’t performed as well as expected with either fans or critics. It has been pretty divisive among fans of the franchise, much like its predecessor, Prometheus.

However, James Cameron, who, of course, famously directed Aliens, has commented on Covenant, speaking fondly of it for the most part.

“I thought that Alien: Covenant was a great ride. It was beautiful. I love Ridley’s films, I love his filmmaking; I love the beauty of the photography. I love the visceral sense that you’re that, that you’re present. It’s not a film that I would have made. I hope I’m not spoiling this for anybody, but I don’t like films where you invest in a character and they get destroyed at the end. »

Stephen King says a sequel to The Dark Tower needs to be R-rated

9 August 2017 6:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sony and Mrc’s long-awaited adaptation of Stephen King’s fantasy epic The Dark Tower may not have set the box office alight, although the film has recouped around half of its $60 million production budget, and with many international markets still to come, the Nikolaj Arcel-directed film could well go on to turn a profit. Whether that will be enough to see a sequel greenlighted remains to be seen, but if that is the case, then author King believes it has shake off the restrictions of a PG-13 rating and go down the R-rated route.

“I understand the rationale behind the movie that is PG-13,” said King in an interview with Bmd. “I was totally signed off on that. I want as many people in the tent as possible, for all kinds of reasons. Part of it has to do with the dynamic between the Gunslinger and the boy. »
