ABOVE: Mondo commissioned artists Tom Whalen and Matt Ferguson to create a print paying tribute to Judge Dredd the badass law enforcer of 2000 2000 AD.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the animated Beauty and the Beast, and while my heart can’t take the amount of joy at all the great set photos and trailers, Disney’s taking this opportunity to remind fans of what’s in store for the live-action Beauty and the Beast coming next year. The studio has just released a sneak peek at the new film, featuring stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens and director Bill Condon. Check it out!
As the summer is coming to an end, a little retrsopect on this year’s summer blockbuster candidates were quite a bummmer, with none of the hyped films really living up to the praise. This isn’t to say there weren’t any good films, but many were rather forgettable as soon as you left the theater. Of course, one of the films that received some flak this summer was, Duncan Jones’ Warcraft. The big-screen adaptation of the beloved fantasy computer game of the same name, suffered a horrendous fate at the box office, but only in the U.S., which leads many to speculate whether the film will live on to see a sequel.
Ever since it’s release in 2009, whispers in the halls have teased the possibility of the Zombieland story continuing, but with every dashed hope fans continued to stuff their proverbial sadness with Twinkies. Well fans can stop their emotional eating, because during AMC’s Geeking Out with Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg, Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese provided an update on Zombieland 2.
A lot of first looks from San Diego Comic Con 2016 this summer, are beginning to make their way out for public consumption. Marvel Studios, who had the internet abuzz during their Hall H panel at the pop culture convention back in July, left fans disappointed by not releasing any of the footage shown that day online; with the exception of a new Doctor Strange trailer which debuted simultaneously online. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok had no online presence of what played in Hall H for fans, until today.

Above: Australian Artist Patrick Brown astounds in this ambitious and detailed piece that I’d like to call Marvel’s Cantina of baddies. The piece is said to contain all the villains featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe over the last 5 years. Can you name them all? (more…)
Over 40,000 people gathered to celebrate the end of the Olympic Summer Games, in Rio, as athletes and fans came together. This extravagent affair is held at the end of every Olympics to thank that year’s host city and make way for the next in line. So, with Japan set to host the 2020 Summer Games in Tokyo, the country wanted to give an all-out homage of epic proportions. To do that, they needed a 1-UP from Mario. Check out the video below, while you still got the chance!
Ever since Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi blockbuster Pacific Rim has been in the works, there has been promises of a sequel, and mind you this was even before the film hit theaters, but Pacific Rim 2 has been stuck in development since 2014. Originally the sequel was scheduled for a 2017 release date with production said to start in 2015. But Pacific Rim 2 was eventually pushed back by Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures and production was delayed with no confirmation on when they’d start.
Well, it turns I was not the only one who felt that the crazy overly realistic “Office/30Rock” rip-off that was the Muppets really wasn’t a good cup of tea. ABC has decided to cancel The Muppets. From the beginning, this rocky season struggled to get viewers and Muppets fans to connect with the characters. While the premise of a Muppets workplace comedy was intriguing, it just never successfully merged that idea with the overall Muppets energy and sensibility that we’ve come to know and love. (more…)
Muggles and Wizards around the world wait with bated breathe to return to the Wizarding World, it has been 5 years since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, hitting theaters this year, will offer Potter fans the opportunity to also venture into a previously unexplored time and region of the fictional world. In this case, we’ll be taking a trip to 1920’s New York City.
The Harry Potter series vaguely mentioned other Wizarding cultures outside of the British one, and that took place during the Triwizard Tournament that featured the other participating schools from around the world. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that there is a American version of the Hogwarts house names (Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin) but the reveal doesn’t come from Warner Bros., but instead from a hacker roaming the internet.
