‘Universal Monsters’ are Putting the Band Back Together

- 07-17-14Cool Stuff, Film, Nerd Culture Posted by James Daniels

UniversalMonsters

Dracula, The Wolfman, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Mummy, and pals are set to be rebooted by their original creators: Universal Pictures. Plans are in set to make cinema’s most famous fiends into an interconnected series of new films–much like Marvel has done with its superhero characters, and Warner Bros is doing with the denizens of DC comics.

But before you scorn Universal for besmirching the legacy of some of the greatest characters in filmdom with a modern-day gimmick, it’s important to remember that these characters BEGAN as part of an interconnected universe. Standalone films like Dracula and Frankenstein eventually evolved into multi-monster pictures like Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman, House of Dracula, and House of Frankenstein.

And now, under the creative authority of Alex Kurtzman–who worked on the Transformers and Star Trek films with former partner Roberto Orci–and Fast and Furious franchise scribe Chris Morgan, the Universal Monsters are getting a long overdue silver-screen “reunion”. (more…)

SyFy Says ’12 Monkeys’ Series Won’t Be Anything Like The Film: New Trailer Implies Otherwise

12-monkeys-syfy

We’ve been aware for some time that Terry Gilliam‘s bleak, yet brilliant time travel/apocalypse flick 12 Monkeys would be adapted into a TV series by the good people (?) at SyFy.

A few days ago, the new show’s co-executive producer Terry Matalas spoke at the SyFy TCA panel–he assured all present that his network’s iteration of 12 Monkeys will bear little resemblance to Gilliam’s 1995 film, it will be a “complete re-imagining” using the film as a framework, but not based on it.

If this is so, someone needs to tell the series’ new trailer. (more…)

‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 5 Casts A Sand Snake

Season 4 of Game of Thrones introduced a fascinating new character in Oberyn Martell. The Prince of Dorne also had a second name: The Red Viper. A lascivious scoundrel on a quest for revenge, Prince Martell took on Ser Gregor Clegane, the most brutal man in the land of Westeros in an episode entitled “The Mountain and the Viper.” Some thought the story would end there, but House Martell stands to issue a second weapon next season: The Dornish Sand Snakes. Who and what are they? Where there’s one viper, others cannot be far behind, and we know who’s the first “Snake” to be cast. (more…)

REVIEW: ‘Knuckleheads: First Contact’ – IDW’s Best New Indie Comic

- 07-08-14Cool Stuff, reviews Posted by Leo Johnson

knuckleheads_001-005

Superhero comics are often a bit too serious these days. All these people with powers beyond imagine, and they can’t even muster a smile or enjoy all the cool things they can do with their flight, super strength, super cool gadgets, or whatever else they may have in their powerset. It’s so rare to see a super who doesn’t even worry about fighting evil, but just revels in the awesome situation they’ve been placed in. That’s where Brian Winkeler and Robert Wilson IV do something a little different with Knuckleheads(more…)
