Tron-Inspired LightMode Motorcycle Helmets

27 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A few years back, a lithium-powered Tron: Legacy-inspired lightcycle went on the market for a reasonable $55,000. Soon after, officially licensed Tron leather motorcycle suits were released. The only thing missing? Tron-inspired helmets, of course! I’m sure if you were willing to drop the money on a cool but impractical electric motorcycle, you’ve probably found someone to build you a luminescent helmet. But if you’re riding a bike you already love and want a cheaper way to show your love for Tron (or just want to take an extra safety measure so people can see you when you’re riding), LightMode has you covered. They are currently taking orders for their electroluminescent helmets and mod kits on their Kickstarter page.

Here are some tech specs from Uncrate:

LightMode adds glowing El components onto the outside of the helmet using a combination of super-strong glue and chemical accelerator. »

10 Movie Sequels That Took Way Too Long

26 August 2014 8:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Generally when a movie enjoys astronomical success, movie studios will start prepping a sequel the second they realise they’re onto a winner, either when a confident producer sees some raw footage from the set, or most often once those first weekend box office tallies start coming in. Hollywood is in large part driven by sequels, and though we frequently complain about this indicating a lack of creativity in the industry, if they’re going to do it regardless, movie studios at least need to strike while the iron is hot.

These 10 movies, however, did the exact opposite, making us wait years, even numerous decades before we got our hands on a long-anticipated, much-discussed follow-up, by which point too much time had passed and the results (for one of many reasons) weren’t quite what we were hoping for. Perhaps audiences had just grown tired of waiting, or the original »

Arrow season 3 casts Matt Ward as Komodo

20 August 2014 10:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to Entertainment Weekly, Tron: Legacy alum Matt Ward has joined the cast of Arrow season 3, as the DC Comics villain Komodo.

Komodo is the alter-ego of Simon Lacroix, an expert archer, master of Kyudo martial arts, and a big foil of Oliver Queen’s in the New 52 run from Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino. In the comics, he’s a former associate of Robert Queens, who betrays and kills him in order to obtain an amulet that grants him immortality.

Komodo will make his small screen debut in the second episode, and will tie into some of the season’s larger story arcs, according to executive producer Marc Guggenheim:

“He’s the villain-of-the-week for the second week of the show, but you’ll see that Team Arrow’s pursuit of him is part and parcel of a season-long storyline. You’re going to know what happens to Komodo »

Several Updates On "Arrow" & "The Flash"

20 August 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Arrow

Last season saw flashback scenes in which Moira Queen paid off one of Oliver's flings to disappear with her and Oliver's child (which he didn't know about). This has raised the question, is Oliver's son on the show going to be his estranged son Connor Hawke from the comics?

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim says: "We've put it out there and we've got some cool ideas about where to go with it, should we do it, but we haven't committed to actually doing it or even when to do it."

The fifth episode of the upcoming season, originally titled "Oracle," has been renamed "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak" and will still see the introduction of Felicity's mother (Charlotte Ross).

Finally, Matt Ward ("Tron: Legacy") has joined the new season as Simon Lacroix, aka. Komodo. A skilled archer and deadly mercenary who is the 'villain of the week' for the show's second episode. »

'Arrow' Season 3 Adds Matt Ward as Komodo

19 August 2014 2:37 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The CW's Arrow is adding to its growing villain lineup once again, with Matt Ward (Tron: Legacy) signing on to play the nefarious Simon Lacroix, a.k.a. Komodo in Season 3.

The character was introduced in DC's "New 52" last April as a young, impoverished man who went on to work for Oliver Queen's father, before turning into a deadly mercenary with archery skills that rival Oliver's. While it isn't known how much of his back story will come into play on the CW series, Komodo will be wreaking havoc upon Starling City in Season 3.

Komodo will be introduced in the second episode of Season 3 as the "villain of the week," but, as executive producer Marc Guggenheim explains, this character is part of the show's initiative to connect their weekly villains into a larger story.

Disciples of the Storm Kickstarter is in Need of Help

17 August 2014 8:38 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Indie developers Storm Isle Productions is nearing completion on their kickstarter and need your help.

Storm Isle Productions, based out of West Virginia, has taken their love of the real time strategy game NetStorm: Islands at War and are working to expand the mythos in their indie game, Disiples of the Storm, working with Netstorm's original talents, Jim Greer, Beverly Garland, and artist Morgan Ogburn.

Film Review: ‘The Giver’

11 August 2014 11:30 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sameness, the conformist plague that afflicts the futuristic citizens of Lois Lowry’s celebrated and scorned Ya novel, “The Giver,” might also be the name given to what ails the movie adaptation — the latest in a seemingly endless line of teen-centric dystopian fantasies that have become all but indistinguishable from one another. A longtime passion project for producer/star Jeff Bridges, “The Giver” reaches the screen in a version that captures the essence of Lowry’s affecting allegory but little of its mythic pull — a recipe likely to disappoint fans while leaving others to wonder what all the fuss was about. Any hopes by co-producers the Weinstein Co. and Walden Media that they might have the next “Hunger Games” (or even “Divergent”) on their hands look to be dashed by lackluster late-summer box office.

Originally published in 1993 (six years before “The Matrix”), Lowry’s novel was itself a patchwork of ideas borrowed from Aldous Huxley, »

Vince Vaughn Eyes Lead Role in Season Two of True Detective

4 August 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Casting for season two of True Detective continues to take an unexpected route as Vince Vaughn has emerged as a frontrunner for a lead role in the highly anticipated next batch of episodes.

When we last heard some solid True Detective casting rumours, Colin Farrell (In Bruges) was said to be in serious talks, while both Taylor Kitsch (Savages) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) were apparently in the running for another of the four leading roles featured in season two of the HBO drama.

It’s unclear which of these four roles Vaughn is up for, but preliminary talks have already begun.

There are still very few details in regards to the direction that the series will take when it returns, but we do know that it will be set in California and that the city’s transport system will play a major role in proceedings. Some reports claim that »

First trailer for The Longest Week starring Olivia Wilde

30 July 2014 4:38 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s hardly an original concept this one, but let’s be honest, there are many men across the globe who would fight amongst themselves to get close to Olivia Wilde (Tron: Legacy). Her new film, The Longest Week, takes that concept and runs with it. Check out the first trailer below…

Jason Bateman (Bad Words), Billy Crudup (Blood Ties) and Jenny Slate (Obvious Child) star alongside Wilde star in this one about Conrad Valmont, heir to a vast fortune who has been doing not much of anything, living on a handsome weekly allowance. But suddenly he gets cuts cut off—oh no!—and has to move in with his best bud, Dylan. The problem? Conrad immediately falls for his Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice, played by Wilde.

The Longest Week is set for a September 1st DVD release in the UK, with a limited Us release on September 5th.

Batman ’66 and Batman: The Animated Series Mondo Posters

29 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here are a few Mondo posters for two classic Batman series, the ‘60s Batman television series and the ’90s cartoon Batman: The Animated Series. Unfortunately, all three have already sold out of their limited edition prints. I need a good place to cry… To the Batcave!

The ’66 Batman variant poster featuring Adam West and Burt Ward as the Dynamic Duo with thugs at their feet and the Rogues Gallery above them was created by Martin Ansin. We’ve featured many of Ansin’s Mondo prints over the years, including eye-catching designs for Tron and Tron: Legacy, Ender’s Game, and Iron Man 3.  

The Batman: The Animated Series regular and variant prints featuring Harvey Dent, a.k.a. Two Face, were done by Phantom City Creative.

Six of the Best: Michael Sheen

25 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Michael Sheen’s role in Masters of Sex resulted in his nomination for Best Actor in a Television Series this year, and you can see what all the fuss is about this Monday 28th July when the first season hits DVD in the UK.

Sheen plays Dr William Masters who, along with Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson, is a pioneering researcher in the field of human sexuality. The show was successful enough to draw a second season order, which is underway on Us TV as we speak.

This is just the latest in a line of successful roles for rising star Michael Sheen, who is becoming one of a number of new British stars successful in Hollywood. He has had numerous memorable roles, and here we take a look at six of the best…

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Trailer For Ouija Announces Its Presence

16 July 2014 5:01 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Transformers or the Ouija Board: which is the greater of these evils? What you might not know is that both are owned by Hasbro. Weirdly, despite its sinister reputation and its ancient origins as something supposedly genuine, the version of the Ouija Board most people know today is actually a variant of a commercial board game. That's why the toy company is involved in Ouija, the new teen horror from first-time director Stiles White. Olivia Cooke (The Quiet Ones, Bates Motel) stars, and the first trailer has just arrived, by medium of an independently ambulatory glass with poor spelling. See that "From the producer of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" line? That's the 2003 remake we're talking about, rather than the Tobe Hooper classic. The producer in question is a certain Michael Bay, working under his Platinum Dunes banner. The ubiquitous Jason Blum (Insidious, Sinister, Paranormal Activity, The Purge and so on) is also on the roster. »

Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund Eyed for 'True Detective' Season 2

11 July 2014 2:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

HBO is refusing to give any comment on its possible True Detective Season 2 casting, but shortly after it was announced that Colin Farrell was in talks for one of four main leads, it was revealed that Taylor Kitsch is being eyed by the network to also star in the hit HBO drama series.

Colin Farrell will play the older lead male detective if he signs on, with Taylor Kitsch playing his younger partner. HBO programming president Michael Lombardo commented earlier in the week that an official casting announcement is coming soon.

An insider claims that Colin Farrell fills the character type HBO is looking for, a true movie star who is both rugged and gritty. The actor is said to be very close to signing his deal. At this time, it's not known if Taylor Kitsch has officially entered negotiations.

Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund is also rumored to be »

Colin Farrell In Talks to Star in HBO's 'True Detective' Season Two

11 July 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well finally, finally there is some news regarding the second season of HBO's "True Detective" worth reporting as The Wrap says Colin Farrell is in talks for one of the lead roles with Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, Lone Survivor) in contention to play one of the season's other characters and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) also rumored to be circling a role. Series writer/creator Nic Pizzolatto was recently quoted by The Daily Beast discussing the second season and said he's expanded on the characters he originally started with when he began writing saying, "They've deepened and become richer... I would say there are four central roles." If we're to gain anything from this casting story from The Wrap, three of those roles belong to males while there was hope the second season would be driven by at least one female character if not more. Perhaps it stands to assume the »

Colin Farrell in Talks for True Detective Season Two; Taylor Kitsch and Garrett Hedlund Also Eyed

11 July 2014 10:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Despite how impressive the first few trailers for True Detective were, it’s fair to say that no one could have ever predicted just how huge the critically acclaimed series would become, creating intense speculation and theories online, and later the extremely funny #TrueDetectiveSeason2 hashtag.

Despite both being nominated for Emmys and a host of other awards, neither Matthew McConaughey or Woody Harrelson will return for season two of True Detective after their stories were wrapped up in the first eight episodes. A number of names have since been suggested and rumoured to replace them.

Well, we finally have something a little more definite as Deadline reports that Seven Psychopaths and Saving Mr. Banks star Colin Farrell is deep in talks for one of what is expected to be three main roles.

The Irish actor looks set to be joined by John Carter and Savages star Taylor Kitsch who The »
