Dark Phoenix Suffers Huge 2nd Weekend Drop, May Bomb Harder Than Fantastic Four

Things went from bad to worse for Dark Phoenix over the weekend. Much, much worse. The latest X-Men movie, which is set to be the final one in this particular version of the franchise, entered its second weekend of release with a pack of newcomers such as Men In Black: International and Shaft. That, coupled with bad buzz has led to a disastrous second weekend take at the box office, marking one of the biggest drop-offs in superhero movie history, and certainly the biggest ever in the modern era. The movie could fare even worse than Fox's maligned Fantastic Four reboot. As such, Dark Phoenix is going to lose a whole bunch of money, likely more than $100 million, for the studio.

Per weekend box office estimates, Dark Phoenix dropped a staggering 72.6 percent week-to-week, bringing in just $9 million. On its opening weekend, it made an unimpressive $33 million. Things have gone from bad to cataclysmic.

Allen Christian, Gerald James, and Lacey Day bring you a weekly podcast chronicling the ups and downs of comic-book-to-film adaptations from the very beginning. Every single one of them, as in-depth as each deserves…

Skipping ahead due to the unavailability of Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, John Hall joins the crew to talk about the Kenneth Branagh-directed Thor, the 4th Marvel Studios film. Laying the foundations for Thor as a character and the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the film isn’t really still on anyone’s lips when discussing the McU, but it’s ultimately one of the better efforts from the studio.

Cult horror comic Dylan Dog is heading to the small screen

Italian comic book publisher Sergio Bonelli Editore has announced that it is developing an English language TV adaptation of the cult horror series Dylan Dog.

The comic, created by Tiziano Scalvi, launched in 1986 and follows the titular protagonist, a paranormal investigator who explores cases involving various monsters, ghosts, vampires, werewolves and zombies.

Dylan Dog has sold over 50 million copies worldwide, and was previously adapted for the big screen with 2011’s Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, which saw Brandon Routh in the title role.

The film and TV rights to Dylan Dog were reacquired by Bonelli last year, with the publisher opting to control production on its properties to ensure that “the essence of our characters and our properties remain intact.”

Italian Comics Publisher Bonelli Moves Into Production With ‘Dylan Dog’ (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Leading Italian comics publisher Sergio Bonelli Editore is branching out into TV production with plans to make an English-language show based on cult horror series “Dylan Dog,” plus other projects based on its properties, which are distributed in 35 countries.

Bonelli’s long-expected move into production, with a dedicated arm called Bonelli Entertainment, unlocks its expandable comics universe for a wide range of adaptations, but comes with the key proviso that the company wants to “be in charge,” following some “bad experiences,” said development chief Vincenzo Sarno. A 2011 Hollywood indie movie adaptation, “Dylan Dog: Dead of Night,” bombed at the box office.

Sarno said the company is in talks with prospective Italian and international partners, including global streaming services, on its new projects.

Bonelli’s move comes amid Italy’s rising profile as a hot territory for high-end international TV series, thanks to shows such as “Gomorrah,” “The Young Pope” and

Dylan Dog television series in the works, watch the pilot here

If you really strain to think, you just may recall Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, starring Brandon Routh, releasing in theaters way back in 2011. Maybe. I use the word ‘strain’ because the movie had very little marketing, and horrible reviews. The movie performed so poorly, in fact, that Platinum Studios hopeful franchise promptly went down the drain, along with Routh’s career for some time (thankfully, you can currently see him back in the world of DC Comics on the CW’s Legends of Tomorrow).

Now, out of the blue it seems, there is a Dylan Dog television series in the works, and you can view the pilot – entitled “Dream of the Living Dead” – in its entirety right now…

The pilot was made by Austrian filmmaker Kevin Kopacka, and he is seeking support from fans to make the project happen. Visit the project’s official website for more details on

‘Ratchet & Clank’ Review: Video Game Becomes a Forgettable Kiddie Space Adventure

  • The Wrap
‘Ratchet & Clank’ Review: Video Game Becomes a Forgettable Kiddie Space Adventure
Busy, loud and fast-paced, the animated video-game adaptation “Ratchet & Clank” — based on the Insomniac Games series pitting a crafty cat-like mechanic and a diminutive robot against a megalomaniacal villain — takes the PlayStation controls out of the gamer’s hands in search of all-scripted, feature-sized pizzazz for an interactive title that’s been around since the start of this century. As second-tier CG-styled animations go, this origin-retelling diversion from director Kevin Munroe (“Dylan Dog: Dead of Night”) is a serviceable action-and-humor-crammed space hero saga for kids. But as is usually the case with carefully engineered franchise movies with a reputation...

Ratchet & Clank movie review: wretched and junk

Could have been assembled entirely from clips from other movies — mostly the Star Wars prequels — and would have been better if it had been. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): never hopeful about based-on-videogame movies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Ah, so there’s my answer, once again.

I was wondering how that standard movie philosophy still applied to me. You know, that standard movie philosophy that is not only the stuff but the actual stuffing of 99 percent of wish-fulfillment genre fantasy movies for decades now. I approached Ratchet & Clank with great anticipation. Can I do anything? Can I be anything I want to be? Am I destined for greatness, to save the world or even the whole galaxy even if I am a foolhardy, thoughtless, unfocused screwup with almost nothing to my name but maybe some undisciplined smarts and outsized aspirations to grandeur?

'Ratchet and Clank' TV Spots Unleash the Sheepinator

It's been quite some time since we've seen any footage from Ratchet & Clank, with our last glimpse coming with the second trailer released way back in October. Now that we're getting closer and closer to the April 29 release, Playstation Nation has unveiled two new TV spots, which showcases the transforming powers of a weapon known as 'The Sheepinator.' As you might have guessed, this crazy ray gun turns its targets into sheep. We're not quite sure how exactly that's useful, but The Sheepinator was a popular weapon used in the Playstation video game series this animated movie is based on.

The story centers on the title characters, Ratchet (James Arnold Taylor) and Clank (David Kaye), two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek (Paul Giamatti) from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy "lombax" who has

'Ratchet and Clank' Trailer #2: Heroes Become Legends
Way back in 2013, the first trailer arrived from the highly-anticipated video game adaptation Ratchet & Clank, although it didn't feature any actual footage, serving as somewhat of a parody of the movie itself. Today, Apple has released the first full trailer with our first true look at this adaptation, which features voice actors James Arnold Taylor and David Kaye reprising their roles as the title characters from this hit video game, which shows how this lovable "lombax" and his robot friend first meet. We also get a glimpse at the nefarious villain, Chairman Drek, voiced by Paul Giamatti.

The Surprisingly Prolific Comic Book Actors

Hugh Jackman has played Logan aka Wolverine in seven different films. It’s an impressive number that will shortly increase with a third solo Wolverine film and possibly X-Men:Apocalypse, although at the time of writing he has yet to be officially cast. A few other names are snapping at the heels of Jackman, notably the cast of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If you include the forthcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, Chris Evans has played Captain America four times (five if you include his appearance as Loki using magic to look like the first Avenger in Thor: The Dark World), Scarlett Johansson and Chris Hemsworth have portrayed Black Widow and Thor respectively four times each whilst the King of the McU, Robert Downey Jr. has made an impressive six appearances as Iron Man/Tony Stark (including his post-credit appearance in The Incredible Hulk).

Unfortunately for Hugh Jackman, as far as this article is concerned,

Marvel Sets Sights on Writer for Doctor Strange

Earlier this month, Marvel picked Scott Derrickson as the director of Doctor Strange. The project about a neurosurgeon turned sorcerer and protecter of Earth is wasting no time picking up steam, as Marvel has announced the writer they want to craft the Doctor’s first big screen adventure.

According to Deadline, Marvel has set their sights on Jon Spaihts to work on the screenplay for Doctor Strange. A first draft of the movie’s screenplay, written by Thomas Dean Donnelly (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, Sahara) and Joshua Oppenheimer (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, Sahara), already exists. It’s likely that Spaihts would be brought on to do a script re-write. Spaihts has some key recent writing credits: he wrote The Mummy reboot for Universal and was the first writer to work on the Prometheus screenplay. Though Marvel and Spaihts are still in negotiations, expect an official announcement soon. Stay

Principal photography wraps on horror flick ‘Utero’

  • Nerdly
Writer/Director Bryan Coyne’s (Harvard Park, Incarnate) new horror film Utero has wrapped principal photography. Utero is a character-driven story that is structured in a similar fashion of the horror films of yesteryear, and follows an agoraphobic unwed mother, played by Jessica Cameron (pictured above on set), who finds her psyche unraveling as she becomes convinced that her unborn child is more monster than human.

Director/writer Coyne had this to say about the movie:

“Shooting Utero was a dream come true for me. Like any filmmaking experience it was a grandiose challenge. But the commitment of our crew and cast, a wonderful commune of pure artists, helped me achieve something astoundingly effective. I can’t wait for this film to be seen.”

Utero was shot in Los Angeles and independently financed by Coinopflix. Jonathan Higgins and Jessica Cameron (Truth or Dare) produced the film with former Platinum Studios

Time To Get Odd! – A Blu-ray Review Of Odd Thomas (Image Entertainment)

I was able to see Odd Thomas well before its Blu-ray debut, thanks to friends on the festival circuit that granted me access to a private screener. I wasn’t even aware of the film, honestly, until my friend Kevin from Screen-Connections mentioned it to me. He also clued me in on the legal hell that the movie had been experiencing, and the fact that it was unlikely that it would be released anytime soon, if ever. Cut forward to October of 2013 and the film was playing Toronto After Dark, and other festivals. Shortly thereafter, the film was picked up for home video distribution Via Image Entertainment, and now we have a nice shiny Blu-ray of this great little movie. I’ll be honest in saying that I have seen some mixed reception among people that I associate with, but I think this is one of those underrated gems that
