Tonight on Conan (guy with red hair, hosts a late night talk show) the 3rd and final trailer of X-Men: Days of Future Past was aired. If you’re a fan of director Bryan Singers X-Men universe then no doubt this will astonish you. He and FOX defiantly pulled out the big guns, that’s for sure.  If you’re a comic book reader, however, you may take umbrage with it.  (more…)

Back To The Future II

We don’t have flying cars, we don’t have self-tying shoes and – dammit – we don’t have pizzas that cook in under thirty seconds. We have been lied to.

The technology I’m referring to is from Robert Zemeckis’s Back To The Future Part II of course. In it, Marty McFly heads to the year 2015 and experiences a world unlike the one we currently live in. So how far off are we from the wild universe Zemekis created? A new Kickstarter project is going to find out.

Paramount is said to be in talks with V/H/S director David Bruckner for the 13th installment in the Friday the 13th franchise, which predictably, and eerily, will hit theater screens on Friday, March 13th, 2015. Should Friday the 13th fans be excited, or fearful of another Jason in Space? (more…)

Here’s one that’ll get you right in the feels, as the kids say nowadays:

After being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in January, 4-year old Jack Robinson of the small village of Denmeade, Hampshire in England–through the generosity of his community and several celebrities–completed a “Bucket List” that concluded with an unique Star Wars funeral.

At this point, comic book writer Mark Millar could probably come up with a miniseries about a killer robot driving instructor that goes back in time for some reason, and still sell it to a movie studio. The Scottish author has sold the film rights to another one of his creator-owned hits, again to Twentieth Century Fox and his Kick-Ass/The Secret Service collaborator Matthew Vaughn. And which book will they be working on? The one that has a name that sounds like it has a lot to live-up to: Superior. (more…)

For many, Die Hard with a Vengeance was the last good Die Hard movie; for others though, Die Hard was the last good Die Hard movie, so let’s just say it’s a contentious debate and leave it at the idea that A Good Day to Die Hard was horrid, horrid, horrid! Still, it collected a few coins at the worldwide box office, and Bruce Willis said he’d enjoy another go in John McCain’s shoes, so a follow-up is inevitable. But will it suck? Perhaps Fox is buttressing their odds by adding one of the reasons that Vengeance was so enjoyable, by re-teaming Willis with Samuel L. Jackson. (more…)

Flash Gordon may be one of the the 20th century’s first science fiction icons and an inspiration for George Lucas when he created his own space opera, but most are familiar with the guy from that rather cheesy 1980 movie with a kick-ass soundtrack by Queen. (FLAAASH! AHAHHHH!) That Flash Gordon is a cult classic, but not necessarily the on screen adaptation the character deserved. Which is where Star Trek 3 writers, J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay come in, as the two are rumored to be working on a script for a reboot. (more…)
