Marvel taking the ratings success of Agents of Shield and running with it seems pretty obvious. We’ve already heard that the House of Mouse and the House of Ideas are planning an Agent Carter television show, based on their short film from the Iron Man 3 DVD, but supposedly they’re woking on four new series and a mini series. Marvel’s catalogue is chock full of characters that would be perfect […]
Over the past weekend a bidding war for Alex Berg’s latest script Section 6 took place. The ultimate result was that Universal won the right to make the film for around a million dollars. Now that the rights have been secured, the studio is quickly approaching talent to bring the picture to fruition. Interestingly enough one of the premier names being bandied about this project is Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman. […]
Peter Weller is one of those actors that I’m so intrigued by that I’ll pretty much watch him read the phone book. He straddles the line between leading man and quirky supporting character. Weller, most famously known for portraying Robocop and Buckaroo Banzai, plays the leader of a deep sea mining crew who encounter a soviet submarine wreck on the ocean floor. The crew discover some bizarre cargo, bring it […]
It would seem that every two or three months Spawn creator Todd McFarlane talks about his dream of making yet another Spawn movie. Well, if believe him, it looks like things are progressing in the right direction. Spawn, originally adapted for the big screen in 1997, chronicles the journey of a government assassin who is killed in action, goes to hell, makes a deal with the devil, and returns to […]
I guess that this is the week of Jeffrey Katzenberg. Katzenberg, the CEO of Dreamworks Animation has just announced that they’ve purchased the catalogue of a company called Classic Media. You probably don’t know that name, but you’ll surely know their library. Classic Media owns the rights to Voltron, Masters of the Universe, Lassie, Mr Magoo, and Rocky and Bullwinkle. Katzenberg he wanted to ‘reinvent’ all of these titles. Something […]
David O. Russell’s new period piece crime drama looks like an impressive showing. From the cast to the writing to the cinematography, it looks like it’s all on point. The film doesn’t need me to yack on and on about it. Watch the trailer and see for yourself.
Breaking Bad is undoubtedly one of the greatest shows of all time. It’s got amazing actors, the best scripts ever written, and some of the most impressive cinematography ever put down on film. The show was a perfect storm of creativity. And the results showed. The series finale was watched by over ten million people. Jeffery Katzenberg, the CEO of Dreamworks Animation, saw the popularity of the show and instantly […]
Regardless of your feelings on the topic of Shia LaBeouf, you’ll find something to like about the trailer for his latest vehicle. He plays the titular character and embarks on a rather strange and seemingly interesting journey. Labeouf has been taking interesting projects on, in part due to his departure from the Transformers franchise. It’s nice to see one of hollywood’s young stars not buy into his own hype and […]
Super hero movies are here to stay. They’ve now been through a boom and bust cycle and they’ve survived. They’re no longer in the ‘slasher’ style decade of popularity followed by a genre wide implosion. They’re bomb proof, at this point. The super hero is no longer a sub-genre. That being said the genre is dominated be Marvel Entertainment. They put out two or three movies a year and they […]
The Cohen Brothers have a consistent record. They put out interesting work with compelling actors. Their one film a year pace is both impressive and highly under appreciated. This time around the brothers are releasing Inside Llewyn Davis which stars Oscar Issacs as the titular character. The film also features Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, and John Goodman. The film looks quite enrapturing. It appears to be yet another spellbinding tale […]
Jack Ryan has had a feature film franchise based on him and yet relatively few people know the character by name. He’s usually identified by the actor playing him. Regarudless if it’s Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, or Ben Affleck, Jack Ryan isn’t usually the top billed name. Well, it looks like that trend is being bucked as the new franchise reboot film buts his name right in the title. Jack […]
Godzilla in the hands of Americans is a dicey thing. It just is. The last time Americans got their hands on the iconic Japanese kaiju we got that Rolland Emmerich/Matthew Broderick suckfest. Hopefully, we’ll get something better this time. The trailer certainly looks like it packs more punch than the 1998 nonsense. But don’t listen to me, see for yourself. Godzilla 2014 Teaser Trailer from Joey Shabadoo on Vimeo.
Imagi, the animation studio that brought you the last animated TMNT film, closed in 2010. Before it closed Imagi had been hard at work on a new Americanized animated version of the classic Japanese Anime Gatchaman or as it was known stateside in the 70’s Battle of the Planets or G-F0rce. Here’s an animatic for the film. Here’s a rough ‘trailer’ for the unfinished feature. And then here’s […]
Breaking Bad is one of the most brilliant television shows every created. The show nails everything from meth culture to local Albuquerque, New Mexico culture to the incredibly difficult task of creating intricately complex humans. Due to the immense interest in the show AMC recently arranged an interview session with Conan O’Brien and the entire cast of the show. Conan and show creator Vince Gilligan have an interesting rhythm and […]
24 is arguably the series that put Kiefer Sutherland on the map. I know, he was in Lost Boys and a dump truck load of other movies but 24 is the show that defined him for the current generation media consumers. Everyone knows who Jack Bauer is. They just do. The show reached such a cultural saturation that even stylistic elements like the ticking clocks and split screens are instantly […]
