Other than last years Comic-Con teaser/sizzle reel and a couple of officially released images, things have been kind of quiet on the forthcoming big screen debut of The Justice League. With the film knuckle deep in post-production, director Zack Snyder has released one of his patented “we making a movie” behind the scenes stills of someone hard at work color processing a scene. Of course that scene shows off Batman mid being all Batman-y. Classic Zack, amiright? (more…)
Jeremy R! Hudson
Profile: Hailing from parts unknown (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.. it's in Canada!) jeremy r! hudson is a broadcaster, writer, artist and self styled new media renaissance man. Once described as the second last hope of the human race. Pop-culture, comic books, science fiction, video games and your sister are just a few of his many interests. When not trying to be a real life Buckaroo Banzai (wait, Buckaroo Banzai wasn't real?!?) he helps raise the next generation of nerds with his lovely and far too forgiving wife. He can be stalked via twitter, facebook and following him home at night.
With production set to start on Aquaman this summer the gentle tide of information on the DCEU film is slowly starting to roll in. The films star, Jason Momoa, took a break from his grueling (most likely trident centric) preparations to talk with Digital Trends.
Fans and detractors have spent decades making jokes at the expense of the King of the Seven Seas, how did Momoa approach playing the Justice League’s monitor duty marathon champion and chief fish translator? (more…)
As every evolving mythos surrounding your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man marches on into it’s 52nd year, you start to wonder if there is any new twists or turns creators could spin to reinvent the character for new generations. We’ve seen costume changes, more than a few clones, heck even web-shooters with a built in mp3 player (kids are crazy about those mp3 players) and bat-crap-crazy dance numbers that have NO place in the movie. Where can you take Lee and Ditko’s wallcrawler when it seems like he’s been everywhere?
The butt. You go straight for the butt.
Corridor Digital plunged new depths in a special effects/rectal web extravaganza (featuring RocketJump filmmaker Clinton Jones as Spidey) that you have to see to believe (and then forever never unsee.) (more…)
After the sudden and tragic passing of Carrie Fisher the question of how the Star Wars franchise would react, rose. Almost immediately (morbidly), there was speculation that LucasFlim/Disney would “resurrect” General Leia digitally as they had done with Peter Cushing/Grand Moff Tarkin for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. After all, they did use the actresses likeness for a younger Princess Leia cameo in the same movie, but that was with the help and blessing of a living Carrie Fisher.
Speculation gave way to rumor recently after the BBC stated that the studio was reportedly in talks with Carrie Fishers’ estate to use her image in future films. Whether in reaction to the response the report garnered or in lines with pre-existing plans, LucasFilm broke silence and released the following statement on StarWars.com: (more…)
After a few months of wild speculation, sourceless rumors, and multiple postings of that same old ‘Sad Batfleck’ picture, we have an actual update on the semi-confirmed forthcoming Ben Affleck written-directed-staring solo Batman movie.
Matt Damon’s better half was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night (Jan 9) promoting a sadly non-Batman related film, Live By Night (come on, the title is sooooo close,) and offered a brief statement on the status of the much-scrutinized DCEU production. (more…)
After just a little under six months of filming, principal photography on the Justice League movie recently completed and to commemorate the committing DC Comics premier super team to celluloid, director Zack Snyder tweeted out a sizzle reel. Clocking in at 90 seconds, the video showcases a bunch of behind the scenes shots and a few glimpses of new footage, all accompanied by the requisite Zack Snyder crunchy guitar riff because the 90s only end if you let it.
Heck, we even get a little taste of a certain man who is super. (more…)
Arguably one of the most shocking moments from Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens was the heartbreaking revelation that one of the galaxies most cherished romances, the star-crossed love between Han Solo and Leia Organa , had come to an end (off screen no less!) Ok, maybe not as shocking as Kylo Ren, the movie’s big black cloaked emo bad guy, being their son or his eventual patricide (we can openly talk about Han Solo being killed in the movie, right? The statute of limitations on it as a spoiler has to be up and besides, talking about it will help us all heal…)
Nearly a year after the film’s release fans are still left to wonder what ended the marriage between a smuggler and a
princess general. Well, wonder no more! This weekend at the Saskatoon Comic & Entertainment Expo, headlining guest Carrie Fisher revealed the root cause of the relationships demise to a packed house. When asked what lead to the termination of their marital alliance, Fisher gave this (most likely non-canon) explanation: (more…)
An argument can be made that 2016’s most notable contribution to film history is that the eternal conversation of critic reviews versus audience reaction rose to prominence (FYI, my eyes glazed over with that phrase too…) Safe to say that it might not have been the best year for long time critic whipping boy and fanbeing cult leader Kevin Smith to release a movie about two teenage combat yoga obsessed girls from Canada which, if you haven’t heard, is currently scoring a painful 22% on Rotten Tomatoes (based on 37 reviews.)
What follows is a video of podcaster and amateur hockey jersey model Kevin Smith’s Hollywood Babble-On co-host, Ralph Garman, reading the beating that critics have given Yoga Hosers while the once loved independent filmmaker reacts. Fair warning, this can be difficult to watch. This may not be for everyone. Steady yourself before venturing any further. You will believe a fat man can cry.* (more…)
Clearly we are entering into an Animaniacs renaissance. Not soon after the show being added to Netflix, the announcement that a Yakko (Rob Paulsen,) Wakko (Jess Harnell,) and, Tress MacNeille (the sister Dot) would be going on tour to perform the music from the classic cartoon, and now? This hidden little gem from SF Sketchfest, the San Francisco Comedy Festival, is making the rounds again.
Rob Paulsen (Pinky) and Maurice LaMarche (The Brain) run through an iconic scene from Quentin tarantino’s Pulp Fiction with Pinky as Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson,) and The Brain as Vincent Vega (John Travolta) naturally. Improving it to no end. (more…)
Now that protests have finally died down, now that our customary 3 week spoiler silence ended, now that Jeremy finally had 5 minutes to toss the whole random grab bag of a podcast together, we are now ready to share the 90 minute conversation on the 151 minute big screen edition of the 75 year build up to the battle between the world’s greatest 4 color titans (that lasts about 8 minutes.)
MILD SPOILER ALERT: Jeremy, Jason, and Matt talk in depth(ish) about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice so this will spoil it for you if you are one of the few who have yet to take in billion dollar (let’s call it) divisive blockbuster that no one can seem to agree upon. Is it the greatest movie ever? The worst? Is it fever dream of a mad space-god-turtle? The guys are not here to convince you of any of that. What you will hear is a little exploration in the highs, the lows, and expansive middles the movie had to offer. (more…)
