Based on the short film Passage, Cargo follows a Bahamian fishermen who gets lured into smuggling illegal Haitian migrants.
Cargo won best pitch at Caribbean Tales in 2012 and is the first part of a slate of films to be developed by Best Ever Film. »
When Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below was announced last year, hype from fans was tempered by just one thing: its associations with the Warriors franchise. Square Enix was smart to avoid branding the game with Koei Tecmo’s usual Western moniker, because that name now carries with it a stigma of brainless button-mashing and dull repetition. That may seem like an unfair assessment, but it’s difficult to deny at this point. After such a long run, across multiple systems and intellectual properties, the series’ hack-and-slash formula feels awfully tired, even when blended with other elements. The Vita version of Dynasty Warriors 8: Empires is yet another example of this “been there, slashed that” feeling, too, as its strategic gameplay feels like little more than window-dressing around the same old stuff.
What separates the Empires series from the normal Dynasty Warriors entries is, »

Heroes Reborn is now on a two-month break, not that the latest episode leaves us impatient for its return...

1.10 11.53 To Odessa
It may have been billed as a “Fall Finale” in NBC’s promotional material but in truth, 11:53 To Odessa is as middle-of-the-road an episode as you’ll find this year, acting mostly as a transitional piece to lead into the final three instalments which will air in January 2016.
At the centre of the action this week is the concept of the ‘time bridge’, Renautas’ method of saving a portion of humanity from global catastrophe by relocating them to the future. The idea is a classic, if unoriginal, sci-fi trope and the question of who gets saved and who doesn’t is the reasonably compelling moral dilemma at the heart of Heroes Reborn’s final set of episodes and the conundrum that continues to divide the characters. »
*Warning: some spoilers for Jessica Jones Episodes 1-6*
The two biggest events that Marvel fans in general are anticipating is the release of Jessica Jones on Netflix in November 2015 and the release of the epic blockbuster Captain America: Civil War in May 2016. On the surface, this film and TV project look like they have nothing in common besides being set in the same shared universe. Jessica Jones is a character driven, neo-noir story about about a superhero turned private eye, who plays a cat and mouse game with the manipulative Kilgrave (played by David Tennant), a man who used his mind control abilities to make her do horrible things and drove her from the hero business. On the other hand, Captain America: Civil War is a bombastic superhero crossover (Seriously, it has more superheroes than the Avengers.) that pits Iron Man against Captain America in answering the age-old question of freedom vs. »

“Heroes” started great back in 2006, before gradually (and in hindsight, rather precipitously) skidding off the rails. “Heroes Reborn” started out as something of a mess, before becoming more interesting upon finally disgorging its plot, without as yet becoming fully comprehensible.
The so-called “fall finale” (everything in TV is about creating inflection points these days) seemed like a good time to take inventory of NBC’s revival, which has benefited by bringing in former players from the original, while being handcuffed by the absence of many of them. In a way, whether someone from the first “Heroes” was available this time around seems like as good a career referendum as any.
The main problem, frankly, is that virtually none of the program’s new additions have particularly popped, with the exception of Miko (Kiki Sukezane), who spends much of her time plunging into a virtual game world, where she becomes a sword-wielding heroine. »

Thanks to photographer Mark Rogers, we may have what is our first look at Megan Gale as Wonder Woman from Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller’s aborted 2007 DC ensemble Justice League Mortal; check out the images here…
Justice League Mortal was originally set to go into production in 2007 before Warner Bros. decided to pull the plug. The cast of the film would have included Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger) as Batman, D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) as Superman, Megan Gale (Stealth) as Wonder Woman, »

Ever since her short-lived stint as a Super Hero ended in tragedy, Marvel's Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic, badass private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City. Plagued by self-loathing, and a wicked case of Ptsd, Jessica battles demons from within and without, using her extraordinary abilities as an unlikely champion for those in need... especially if they're willing to cut her a check. It's time the world knew her name.
And that time comes tomorrow! But while we all wait patiently to binge watch all 13 episodes at once, Netflix as released the opening credit sequence. Though, it is presented without any of those pesky credits getting in the way. It's an artful, comic book inspired way to introduce us to the show. And it's pretty cool. You can either wait until midnight to see this with credits in tact. Or »
With only a few hours left before hitting Netlfix, the opening title sequence is now online for the highly-anticipated original series Marvel's Jessica Jones, which will premiere on November 20, 2015 at 12:01am Pt in all territories where Netflix is available. I'm actually looking forward to seeing this Marvel series.
Check it out below.
The wait's almost over. A little something to get you through the next twelve hours. #JessicaJones https://t.co/CLroWR3xHu

The trio will serve as writers and exec producers on the project for ABC Family — soon to be renamed Freeform — which hails from ABC Signature Studios and Kitsis’Horowitz.
Set in the late ’80s, “Dead of Summer” takes place at Camp Clearwater, a seemingly idyllic Midwestern summer camp known for first loves, first kisses — and first kills. Throughout the season, Clearwater’s dark, ancient mythology awakens and what was supposed to be a summer of fun turns into one of unforgettable scares and evil at every turn.
The show is described as part coming-of-age story and part supernatural horror story.
“’Dead of Summer’ is about what happens when summer camp goes wrong — really, really wrong. The horror genre is new for »

Issue 1 of this 5 issue limited series was a bit of a disappointment to me, it must be said. The idea is sound; take characters from the Heroes Reborn TV show, and give them an individual spotlight, add more depth and interest to them and their world. Have it co-written by the show’s producer too, to keep consistency and authenticity. Sounds great, but as the first issue showed individual pieces do not a satisfying end product make. I had my fingers crossed for issue two.
Issue 1 gave us the set-up, Oscar Gutierrez is a mechanic by day, costumed vigilante at night, dedicated in both guises to keeping his community (and family) safe. We still jump between the past and present, and a few more hints are revealed to the reader. Carlos was absent from »

If "Arrow" had an alternate name, it would be called "Resurrection", or at least "All Hail the Lazarus Pit". I say this — mostly in jest — because "Arrow" is bring another character back from the dead this week in the episode titled "Brotherhood". While Thea (Willa Holland) and Sara (Caity Lotz) needed the help of the Lazarus Pit to bring them back, this character doesn't need magic, he needs discovery. Much like Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who was thought to be dead until Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) discovered his message, this character was also only presumed dead. Who is this mysterious character, now returning to the land of the living? Andrew Diggle, John Diggle's believed-to-be-dead brother. Andy is played by Eugene Byrd, whose acting credits include "Bones", "8 Mile", "Heroes", and previous flashback episodes of "Arrow". According to John Diggle (David Ramsey), Andy was killed by Deadshot (Michael Rowe »

For a brief time the television series Heroes was a cultural phenomenon, running from 2006-2010, though by its end it had badly run out of steam. That first season though stands up as good as any you will see. As a show that took its ideas and format from comic books, it has strangely not done very well in translating the Heroes world and characters to the comic book format in the past. Titan Comics are giving it another bash, and doing it the right way by getting the show’s producer, Seamus Kevin Fahey, to co-write.
The central idea is to produce a series of mini-series that will flesh out the background and motivations of the different characters that will be spotlighted in the Heroes Reborn TV show, (currently showing in the Us, »

Tai Freligh reviews episode 9 of Heroes Reborn, ‘Sundae, Bloody Sundae’…
This week’s episode of Heroes Reborn picks up the threads that were missing from the two-parter. We also see how the future was changed by Noah going back in the past. We come back to Carlos and Dearing as well as see a bit more about Tommy. Spoiler warning- there are a few character deaths as well as a few big reveals in this episode. Let’s get to the recap and review!
Turns out Dearing was not betraying Carlos when he gave him the test tube of fluid. He escorts him into Sunstone Manor and turns him over to the people there who test Carlos to see if he’s an Evo. He tests positive (thanks to Dearing). We learn that Sunstone Manor is looking for EVOs who have essential powers like teleportation (Tommy!). Must be run by Renautas. »

'Jessica...' The Purple Man whispers in our superhero's ear. Marvel's Jessica Jones is under the hypnotic spell of a man known only as Kilgrave in the latest sneak peek at Netflix's upcoming adventure series. She's a hard drinking P.I. who's just taken on the most dangerous case of her short lived career. He's looking to manipulate humans with extraordinary powers. Together, they are a match made in Hell. This dreamy new trailer offers plenty of quick footage from the upcoming episodic drama. And it's all awash in a lavender mist that might make you doze off and do things against your will.
In September, Netflix finally announced that its next highly-anticipated original series Marvel's Jessica Jones will premiere on November 20, 2015 at 12:01am Pt in all territories where Netflix is available. That news was delivered via the show's social handle @JessicaJones. Over the course of the past two months, »
Finally, Heroes Returns gets back to the present and clears the way for a potentially strong final act...
This review contains spoilers.
1.9 Sundae, Bloody Sundae
Luke and Joanne work out their issues over some ice cream and Matt Parkman attempts to recreate The Prisoner this week as Heroes Reborn returns to the present day with Sundae, Bloody Sundae. With all the head-scratching time travel and info-dumping from the past two episodes out of the way, Heroes Reborn gets to return to a streamlined, less hasty format as we are reacquainted with the main timeline, albeit with the addition of a few squashed butterflies. The more sedate pace is a pleasant change of gear after the intensity of the June 13th two-parter and it’s a relief to be back in more familiar territory and to catch up with the characters who took a back seat for the flashback episodes. »
Dan Fogelman’s NBC birthday dramedy has cast five of its eight leads, Variety has confirmed. The potential series will follow a unique group of characters all born on the same day.

After a short break, the letters page is back! And, er, you've been asking us difficult questions...
Gah. Best laid plans, right? Last month, time beat us, and our letters page had to take a break while we attempted to frantically steer the tolerable ship Den Of Geek towards its daily DoGMRoD (see last letters page). But we're back! And you've ben asking us more tricky questions. That we have tried to answer.
Right here, in fact.
Really Long News Articles
I [nice things redacted] Den Of Geek, and have done for a long time. It’s [nice things redacted] site out there and I [nice things redacted] every day.
I do have a question though. What’s with these long news articles with lots of updates on them? Can’t we just have one individual news article for each story? It was much easier to comment on.
Carry on being [nice things redacted]. You’re far better than [best redact this bit too].
