Comic Books Actually Exist! And Other Things I’ve Found Out

12 October 2017 1:18 AM, PDT | Age of the Nerd | See recent Age of the Nerd news »

Author Note: This original editorial was written in 2011, and several of the references are clearly dated, and more than that, in the past six years, my perspective has altered, changed, been tweaked,…, been re-examined (Shrugs) something to that effect- needless to say that this is the article written by a then-still young(er), still unknowing film school undergrad who had a more wide-eyed and bushy-tailed view of the subculture than I do now. My perspective as an outsider was more curious and intriguing at the time, and I think it’s important to have those kinds of initial thoughts documented, as much if not moreso than one’s current more-refined thoughts.  While I will update portions of this article at the bottom of the page, I ask that you keep in mind, the perspective in which it was written, and forgive what are obvious dated references to the time period. »

Jim Carrey To Play Tormented Children’s TV Star In New Showtime Comedy From Michel Gondry

14 September 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Jim Carrey is reuniting with his “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry to star in a new half-hour comedy for Showtime. “Kidding,” which has been given a 10-episode order, will represent Carrey’s first series regular role in more than two decades.

“Kidding” stars Carrey as Jeff, also known as beloved children’s TV personality Mr. Pickles. Here’s the logline: “A beacon of kindness and wisdom to America’s impressionable young minds and the parents who grew up with him – [Jeff] also anchors a multimillion dollar branding empire. But when this beloved personality’s family – wife, two sons, sister and father – begins to implode, Jeff finds no fairy tale or fable or puppet will guide him through this crisis, which advances faster than his means to cope. The result: a kind man in a cruel world faces a slow leak of sanity as hilarious as it is heartbreaking. »

Clerks - an unlikely multimedia franchise

12 September 2017 1:44 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark Harrison Sep 28, 2017

How a 1994 indie hit from Kevin Smith gave birth to an unlikely franchise...

In 1993, Kevin Smith made a movie. Clerks was shot in black and white over the course of three weeks, at night, in the convenience store where Smith worked during the day, on a shoestring budget of $27,575. Smith funded the film himself by dipping into his savings, selling all his comics and maxing out several credit cards.

Even though it became an indie phenomenon when it was picked up by Bob and Harvey Weinstein's Miramax (who gave it a new soundtrack using a post-production budget that was ten times the cost of principal photography) at the 1994 Sundance Film Festival, it doesn't have 'franchise starter' written all over it.

Long considered a Gen X touchstone, Clerks is a funny and filthy slice of life movie, which equates a working day for Dante Hicks (Brian O'Halloran) to his namesake's Inferno. »

Dennis O’Neil: The Killer Frost

7 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Poor unfortunate Caitlin Snow – not only was The Flash favorite transformed into super-villain Killer Frost but now her latest love interest has gone and vanished.

Actress Danielle Panabaker said: “Here’s the one thing I will say about Caitlin’s relationship with Julian last year – I think he was more into her than she was into him. She was dealing with so much personal stuff, so much turmoil, as she was learning about her powers. So I think it’s a loss for the show and for Team Flash, but I don’t know that Caitlin feels Julian’s absence as deeply as she felt, for example, [her late fiancé] Ronnie’s absence.

The above I plucked, more or less at random, from a computer news column. If you didn’t happen you see this particular item, or you did see it and decided it wasn’t worth any time or effort (and »

The Law Is A Ass #415: The Green Hornet Throws A Tamper Tantrum

4 August 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

I think the Green Hornet is starting to believe his own press clippings.

The Green Hornet is a hero who pretends to be a villain. By day he’s Britt Reid, publisher of Chicago’s The Daily Sentinel newspaper. At night, Britt dresses up as the Green Hornet and pretends to be the secret crime boss of Chicago. He uses his guise as a villain to infiltrate criminal organizations and thwart them. And get the bad guys arrested. So sometimes he does some bad things but for the right reasons. Only now I think he’s starting to believe he is a criminal, because in The Green Hornet: Reign of the Demon #1, he started doing bad things for the wrong reasons.

According to the back story of Reign of the Demon, several months ago the Green Hornet took down crime lord Vito Cerelli. Apparently, the Hornet indicated that he »

Here's Where You've Seen Emmy Nominee David Harbour Outside of Stranger Things

16 July 2017 12:55 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

We're all impatiently waiting for season two of Stranger Things to hit Netflix, but the teasers can only hold us over for so long! There's good news for fans: the hit series received a whopping 18 Emmy nominations. In the outstanding supporting actor in a drama series category, David Harbour is nominated for his role as Jim Hopper. But where else have you seen the actor before? While the chief of Hawkins Pd is probably his most well-known role, Harbour has been acting since 1999. On the TV front, he started out with guest appearances. If you're an obsessive Law & Order watcher, you might've caught one of his several episodes across the franchise. He's also had supporting roles on shows like Pan Am, The Newsroom, Rake, Manhattan, and State of Affairs. Harbour has also appeared in quite a few films, including acclaimed and star-studded flicks like Brokeback Mountain, Revolutionary Road, Quantum of Solace, »

Preview of The Green Hornet ’66 Meets The Spirit #1

3 July 2017 10:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dynamite Entertainment launches its new crossover series this coming Wednesday with the release of The Green Hornet ’66 Meets The Spirit #1, and you can take a look at a preview of the first issue here…

Another challenge for The Green Hornet, his aide Kato, and their rolling arsenal, The Black Beauty!

Reid and Kato have traveled to Central City to participate in the futuristic World’s Fair, to get the skinny on the “Newspaper of Tomorrow,” a device capable of predicting headlines before events happen! But isn’t that a dangerous power for the press to wield…and say, who’s that blue-suited skulker in the shadows?

The troubled production of DreamWorks’ first film

1 June 2017 9:47 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jun 14, 2017

DreamWorks launched in a blaze of publicity – but its first film, The Peacemaker, was beset by problems…

Not since United Artists had launched in the 1930s had Hollywood seen anything quite like it. Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg – a trio with a lot of money and a big contacts book between them – came together to launch the first new studio in a generation. It was called DreamWorks Skg, and it was not short on ambition.

Katzenberg would be heading up its animation arm, and soon got to work, with the likes of Antz and The Prince Of Egypt getting things going. But on the live action side, the assumption that Spielberg would exclusively make his films for the studio quickly proved false. Post-the formation of DreamWorks, his first movie as director would instead be The Lost World: Jurassic Park for Universal. Only then would he »

Superhero Movies: See the Top 50 Most Creative Posters

29 May 2017 4:29 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Between Marvel, DC, and other studios battling for box office supremacy, it seems as though superhero stories are constantly flooding theaters. Whether the blockbusters are good or bad, the onslaught can sometimes make the finished products seem similar, and oftentimes these tentpole poster designs feature relatively generic shots of the teams assembled in their costumes, ready to fight crime. IndieWire looked through hundreds of posters to find the cream of the crop: art that is unique, iconic, tells a story, or takes a big risk to make an impact.

These works of art can come in many different forms. Oftentimes the most striking art comes early on in the development process, as the studios are trying to sell a concept more than the stars, costumes or villains. A simple logo can quickly become iconic on a well-designed poster. »

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will write and direct Invincible film

4 April 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After The Walking Dead’s massive success on television, fans of Robert Kirkman have wondered whether another of his comic book series Invincible would ever get a live-action adaptation. Well, it seems that is now set to happen as The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will write, produce and direct an Invincible feature film for Universal.

Created by Kirkman in 2003, Invincible is the story of high school student Marc Grayson, whose father is the world’s mightiest superhero – Omni-Man. After inheriting his father’s powers and learning of their alien ancestry, Marc has to deal with what it means being the son of a superhero and the responsibility of protecting Earth at such a young age. The series has been Image’s second longest title, now having 133 issues, after The Walking Dead.

Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg To Direct Comic Book Adaptation ‘Invincible’

4 April 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The first time Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg tackled a comic book property, it was “The Green Hornet“. Yet creative clashes with Michel Gondry, among other things, led to a less than desirable end result. The duo bounced back, bringing “Preacher” to life at AMC where the show is entirely their vision right to the end. The series is headed into season two, and Universal seems to be impressed enough to give the pair the keys to a big screen, comic book movie.

Joe Corallo: Iron Miss

28 March 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

This past week I finished watching Iron Fist. I also went to a discussion at Manhattan’s Strand bookstore on queer representation in comics, with speakers including Jennifer Camper and Phil Jimenez, but I really want to focus on Iron Fist. Well, I checked out some of the old MST3K episodes they just added to Netflix too. That last part actually ties into my Iron Fist discussion. Yes, really.

The Internet has been flooded with reactions to Iron Fist that have been all over the place. Praise to malaise. I had already seen all the other Marvel Netflix series so I was diving in regardless of what the critics had to say. I got through it all in about days of watching.

It was a rough three days.

I’m not going to get too deep into spoilers, but if you want a 100% spoiler free viewing experience of Iron Fist »

‘Stranger Things’ Star David Harbour In The Mix For Cable In ‘Deadpool 2’

It took more than a decade of grinding it out both on television and at the movies, but David Harbour finally got the due he deserved and a helluva a role in last year’s breakout Netflix hit, “Stranger Things.” As a result, more doors are likely opening for the actor, though he’s no stranger to blockbusters, having popped up in “Suicide Squad,” “The Green Hornet,” “Quantum Of Solace,” and “The Equalizer.” Still, none of those projects are “Deadpool 2.”

The unmade films of Kevin Smith

12 February 2017 6:35 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 13, 2017

Superman Lives, The Green Hornet and sadly now Clerks III: here’s a rundown of the Kevin Smith films we’ll probably never see...

Kevin Smith has always had to fight to get his films off the ground: he started his filmmaking career by maxing out multiple credit cards to self-finance Clerks, and more recently, legend has it, it was only Johnny Depp’s decision to come on board as a wacky supporting character that allowed Smith to secure financing for his walrus-centric horror flick Tusk.

Smith has, across his career, been offered several barmy jobs (he rejected a chance to pen Beetlejuice Goes Hawaiian back in the 90s) and he’s also signed up for a lot of projects that never got past the script phase.

The latter camp of could’ve-beens is what we’re talking about today, following that news that Clerks III »

Rumoured shortlist of directors to replace Ben Affleck on The Batman

3 February 2017 12:24 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe suffered another setback this week as Ben Affleck became the latest director to bail on a DC Films project, with Affleck opting against helming The Batman in order to “find a partner in a director who will collaborate with me on this massive film.”

With the official announcement came reports that War for the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves is high on the shortlist to take over from Affleck, and now Forbes is reporting that Denis Villeneuve (Arrival), George Miller (Mad Max: Fury Road), Gavin O’Connor (The Accountant) and Matt Ross (Captain Fantastic) are also on the studio’s radar.

Now, it would seem unlikely that Villeneuve will be available, given that he’ll be moving from Blade Runner 2049 to the recently announced Dune, while Gavin O’Connor »
