'The Last Days of Michael Jackson' Doc: 5 Things We Learned
On Wednesday, Michael Jackson's estate issued a statement condemning ABC's special The Last Days of Michael Jackson. "We believe the special to be another crass and unauthorized attempt to exploit the life, music and image of Michael Jackson without respect for Michael’s legacy, intellectual property rights or his children," the statement noted.

The Last Days of Michael Jackson aired on Thursday, and it has other problems the singer's estate failed to identify. The special is rife with trite, clunky segues – "It seemed like the sky was the limit,

‘Death House’ Interview: Lauren Compton

With the anticipated horror Death House being released in cinemas on March 2nd, I got a chance to ask actress Lauren Compton about how she became involved in the film, her character Dr. Logan and working with Harrison Smith…

How did you first get into acting?

I was an extra on the set of Mark Whalberg’s movie Invincible (2006) when I was 18 years old. In a roundabout way, I guess you could say I snuck myself into a larger role. Not a much larger role, but I went from being an “extra” to a “featured extra”. My role was an ‘on field photographer’ and in the final cut of the movie I literally appear for a split second during the final football game. I worked on the set during the final few days of production and got to attend the wrap party in Dallas, TX where I met Mark and

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg on their plans to adapt Robert Kirkman’s Invincible

Last April it was announced that Universal Pictures had enlisted Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg to write and direct an adaptation of The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman’s superhero comic series Invincible.

Since then, we’ve had no further updates on the project, which isn’t too surprising considering that Rogen and Goldberg are busy with their two small screen comic book adaptations, Preacher and the upcoming The Boys. However, speaking to Mashable, the duo have no shared a few words on their plans for the movie:

“We are definitely telling the classic story of Invincible, and we are doing some directorial things that will make it more dynamic than just the straight-up story,” said Goldberg. “We’ve come up with some conventions that I think will make it a more cinematic experience that fits in the timeframe more.

‘Oblivion Song #1′ Review (Image Comics)

Written by Robert Kirkman | Art by Lorenzo De Felici | Published by Image Comics

One of the downsides of having success as a comic book creator is the level of expectations that come when you try to launch a new series. Certainly, it can be a good problem to have when people have a high regard for your craft, but it does open the door for possible disappointment. Someone like Robert Kirkman has an extra layer of anticipation due to the level of success some of his books have had outside of the world of comics. Also with his long-running series Invincible ending, many are hoping he has something to fill that void. Enter his newest book Oblivion Song.

When you look at where Kirkman excels as a writer it is his ability to develop characters and establish an engaging atmosphere. Those skills are not necessarily something that you can showcase fully in one issue.
