For the past few weekends the majority of the free world appears to have made it’s way to the cinema to take in that smarmy spaceman/baby-tree/laser trash-panda epic, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is still at the top of the box office and the James Gunn directed cosmic comicbook action/comedy has been universally regarded as both captivating and crowd pleasing. Well, except for one person apparently. (more…)
Because life is weird sometimes, it sounds like Disney is facing down real life honest to goodness pirates (NOT the “yaar, matey” ones, but internet hacker types,) and a threat to release the first 20 minutes of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales weeks before the film’s release at the end of the month.

A lone starship venturing out into the final frontier, her crew bedecked in brightly coloured uniforms. A menagerie of humans and aliens, the best a collective civilized worlds has to offer on a voyage of discovery and adventure.
Now with toilet jokes!
Yes, while Star Trek Discovery is still MIA, sophomore humor specialist and huge Star Trek nerd, Seth MacFarlane‘s dropped the trailer for The Orville, a one-hour sci-fi comedy about the trials and tribulations of a second rate crew trying to forge their destiny among the star, maybe. (more…)
We’ve known for a very very (very) long time that Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (famously from Fast and Furious and infamous for The Tooth Fairy,) will star as the immortal Egyptian anti-hero in the someday coming
Captain Marvel Shazam/Black Adam movie that is apparently still someday coming, but who’d be playing the good guy that the former wrestler turned actor’s bad guy? Well Mr. The Rock Johnson, who is also reportedly producing the film, did give a not so subtle hint to We Got This Covered on who he’d want to see suited up as the scarlet draped acronym powered hero.

After four decades in print and two big screen releases it looks like the faceless lantern jawed lawman from a dystopian future city, Judge Dredd, has his sites set on the small screen next. While there is still no sign of a sequel to 2012’s Dredd (which stared Karl Urban) hitting the big screen anytime soon, Rebellion (who publishes the comic magazine 2000 AD) is teaming up with studio IM Global to produce a “big-budget” TV series based on the futuristic lawman’s escapades.
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Dredd producers (and brothers) Chris and Jason Kingsley are working with Mark Stern (who developed the rebooted Battlestar Galactica) to bring the character to an undetermined network or streaming service, saying that the project is in “early development” and “talent will be announced at a later date.” (more…)
With the countdown to the film’s release on now (and the marketing finally starting to pick up the pace,) star Gal Gadot premiered the final trailer for Wonder Woman at the MTV Movie and TV Awards tonight. Will the next film in the DC Extended Universe be the godsend the Warner Bros./DC Films franchises are hoping for? Can the first female lead superhero movie live up to the hype and do the Themysciran princess justice? Well, a smart person would wait to make an informed decision by watching the movie first, but for that you have to wait till June 2nd.
Anyway, here’s that final trailer: (more…)
25 years ago, a stalwart and bombastic general by the name of Todd McFarlane lead a revolution in the comicbook industry. Joined by his four colour comrades, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and more, they charged the gates as champions of creator owned books. This past weekend Todd came home to the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo and one thing was clear, he hasn’t slowed down a bit. (more…)
If you’ve been wondering why Wonder Woman, the forth coming Warner Bros. movie featuring not only the 75 year old character’s first big screen solo effort but also arguably the biggest female lead superhero film ever (sorry 2005’s Elektra,) seems to be a little light in the promotional department well you are not alone. It really does feel like the film is getting less attention marketing wise than the previous DCEU outing, the much loved and maligned Suicide Squad, or even Justice League which doesn’t come out till this November.
Well, with a little over a month away till the Themyscira Princess’ movie hits theatres, the latest episode of FOX’s Gotham dropped a new TV spot for the film. (more…)
Like peanut butter and bacon or Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” on the radio while you’re stuck in traffic, there are things in the universe that you don’t know are awesome until you randomly come across them. Palette-Swap Ninja‘s “Princess Leia’s Stolen Death Star Plans.” This is one of those things.
Welcome to your new ear worm because the duo behind Palette-Swap Ninja ( & on twitter) has combined two classics, that is the epic
Bee Gees Beatles* album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and little known indie/art film Star Wars** into one master stroke of musical mash-up genius! Check the full album out in this easy to use YouTube playlist: (more…)
Later this year we will say goodbye to the twelfth Doctor. Sometime around Christmas, in a blinding golden flash the combat eyebrows and Scottish brogue will be gone and replaced with someone new. Our guitar wielding punk rock alien savior dressed as a rock and roll magician will move on to his next regeneration (possibly ginger we don’t know yet, but I mean he could be ginger next, right?) But let’s not focus on that just yet because with series 10 really just begining we have a lot of Peter Capaldi‘s tenure as Doctor Who to enjoy.
This weekend, the good Doctor is visiting the Calgary Comic and Entertainment Expo and if I do say so myself he’s in fine form and shows no signs of slowing down just yet. However, as the hundreds that attended his panel made clear, we are already starting to prepare for his 4 years of saving the universe to draw to a close. Here’s a few highlights. (more…)
