The Park is Open – ‘Jurassic World’ Trailer Is Here

- 11-25-14Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

Jurassic-World-Poster-header

Universal Studios said they were going to release the full trailer for Jurassic World on Thanksgiving evening. Well, I guess you have another reason to be thankful, because Universal went and released the trailer on the internet 2 days ahead of time. Based on the looks of things, Jurassic World is everything you’d come to expect from a Jurassic Park movie – and actually, it looks strikingly identical to the first Jurassic Park. Only difference, is there’s a genetically modified T-Rex and Chris Pratt riding with raptors. Check out the trailer below and be sure to let us know what you think. (more…)

‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Finds Its Bad Guy – En Sabah Nur Has Been Cast!

- 11-24-14Comics Posted by Luke Gallagher

X-Men-Apocalypse-Oscar-Isaac-Casting

A young Apocalypse first appeared in the mid-credits button scene (HERE)  at the end of Days of Future Past where we saw him manipulating objects with telekinesis as the Four Horsemen stood in the background. This, of course, setting up the big-bad in Bryan Singers next X-Men installment.

Hot on the heels of rumors that Idris Elba (a.k.a. Heimdall of the Thor film franchise) would be playing the main villain of 2016’s X-Men: Apocalypse, Variety now reports that someone else has been tapped for the role. (more…)

Shed a Tear While You Listen to Billy Boyd Sing “The Last Goodbye” For ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies’

- 11-21-14Film, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

maxresdefault

Seems the more and more people hear/talk about Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit trilogy, the more fans grumble and shake fists about the shit that should not be.

Yes, turning the book into 3 movies was likely 2 movies too much. Yes, there are characters, love triangles and scenes that are based on supplemental material, if at all. Yes, the movies are laden with an overuse of CGI. Yes, the movies do everything they can do remind you they’re connected to The Lord of The Rings. Yes, the heroes of the movies seem to repeatedly fall from ridiculous heights and walk away unscathed (a personal gripe of mine). However, despite its flaws, it has been quite the adventure. Through LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring and now The Hobbit: Battle of the 5 Armies, Peter Jackson has taken us there and back again. And, unless Peter Jackson decides to adapt The Silmarillion (I can hear the resounding “NO” stemming through the screen), this movie marks our last trek into the (cinematic) world of Middle-Earth.

Children of the 80’s Rejoice – Gentle Giant Is Making 12″ Marvel Secret Wars Figures

- 11-20-14Cool Stuff, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

If you grew up in the 80s and were into superheroes, then your indoctrination into Marvels rogues galley of colorful character was likely started or at least facilitated by Mattle’s Secret Wars toyline (and if you were into DC, Toy Bizs Superpowers). Even if you didn’t know much of anything about super heroes, you at least knew of Spider-Man, Captain America and Iron Man. What was great about the Secret Wars line – as based on the famous comic series of the same name – is it introduced some not so familiar characters at the time. Characters like The Wolverine, Kang, Falcon and Baron Zemo. (more…)

Mark Wahlberg Will Be The Six Billion Dollar Man

- 11-06-14Film Posted by Luke Gallagher

original
The original “Six Million Dollar Man” was based on the book “Cyborg” by Martin Caidin, and starred Lee Majors as Austin, running for five seasons on ABC from 1974-1978 and spawning merchandise as well as the spin-off show “The Bionic Woman.” The powers that be have been trying to put together a Six Million Dollar Man movie for quite some time. Kevin Smith wrote a script for it back in the 90’s which he later turned into a comic book series The Bionic Man. The movie idea returned to the shelve until 2011 when Brian Singer and Leonardo DeCaprio were said to be in talks to direct and star, but as was the case before, no one could get the Six Million Dollar Man movie off the operating table.

Until now. (more…)
