‘Prometheus’ Sequel Will Introduce Entirely New Extraterrestrial

- 11-19-14Film Posted by Derek Robertson

 

Promethues

Prometheus was an adequate enough introduction back into Ridley Scott‘s Alien universe. A lot of questions were left unanswered, but that is part of the beauty of the Science Fiction genre; a sense of mystery, room to theorize, to talk with others and debate and learn in a reciprocal manner. It’s not any secret that Ridley Scott is a Sci-Fi auteur; master of his craft. He creates movies that have individuals’ thinking for themselves and developing their own interpretations (Blade Runner and whether Deckard is a replicant or not anyone?).  With Prometheus, it seems one of the main problems that irked some of the fans was the fact the movie wasn’t a direct prequel to the Alien series as was originally planned. Some were annoyed that Damon Lindelof had been called in to tinker with the script (which makes one wonder how Lindelof haters feel about Green Lantern‘ scriber Michael Green penning the sequel) . The fact it is set in the same universe should have been enough to suffice no? Apparently not! Apparently people wanted more of the same. Well, word on the street is that Ridley Scott has been dishing some dirt on his plans for the highly anticipated sequel. (more…)

Guardians Of The Galaxy Gag-Reel Is A Must Watch

- 11-19-14Comics, Cool Stuff, Film Posted by Derek Robertson

Guardians of the Galaxy

Yesterday we were treated to a Guardians of the Galaxy dance-off clip between Star-Lord and Ronan The Accuser, which was to decide the fate of the world ( …this could have worked as an alternate ending, no?). That scene was basically a set-up for Dave Batista (Drax the Destroyer) according to James Gunn. You can see how he is caught off guard as he starts to express a confused – ‘what-the-hell-is-going-on’– type grin. Not only is this a wonderful clip, but it also invites us – the viewers – to vicariously feed off of the good vibes they obviously had whilst filming the movie. The chemistry is great in the film, and this must of been one of the many elements, that when mixed together, produced a gem of a film. You can view the clip again here, …and “Dance-off”  (more…)

Chris Pratt To Become A COWBOY NINJA VIKING In Graphic Novel Adaptation

- 11-19-14Comics, Film Posted by Derek Robertson

Chris Pratt

After the revelation that Chris Pratt turned down the main role for Sony’s big screen adaptation of the hit video game Uncharted, there were a few disappointed fans of both; the game and the actor, left questioning his decision. However, if you think about it, his agent must be inundated with myriad scripts after the success of Guardians of the Galaxy propelled Pratt into A List territory. Fortunately Pratt is now attached Universal’s tentpole adaptation of the graphic novel Cowboy Ninja Viking (does it come as any surprise that this role has sparked an interest from Pratt?). A movie with that kind of title would have Pratt’s Parks and Recreation alter ego Andy Dwyer jumping around stupid like an excited and diminutive kid-ster (Pratt is like a slightly less pumped version of Dwyer). This is also a pretty smart move, as it is a massive genre project that Universal is pumping a lot of talent and money into. With a story focusing on a schizophrenic assassin who obtains the skills of a Cowboy, a Ninja, and a Viking working for a secret government program, who wouldn’t want to be involved in a project like that?!

Ghost-Busted: 2009 ‘Ghostbusters 3′ Script Leaked

We’ve been Ghostbusters 3 hurt before. First there’s the rumor, then the inevitable comments from Dan Aykryod that it is happening and that is usually followed by the Bill Murray denials and balloon of hope popping statements. It’s been happening since 1989, so when word was going around in 2008 that we might finally see a Ghostbusters 3 movie, a lot of us just crossed our fingers and said a silent prayer. That time it seemed to have some legs, Sony confirmed that they had hired Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, writers for NBC‘s the Office to flesh out a Ghostbusters 3 script. What followed was classic Ghostbusters 3 drama that ended with no movie. What happened and where is the finished script? (more…)

‘Star Wars Episode VII’ Teaser Coming Soon, Villain Sighting Confirmed

- 11-18-14Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Star-Wars-The-Force-Awakens

Just because we don’t get a lot in terms of verifiable information concerning Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that doesn’t mean that information can’t sometimes get out. One of the most consistent sources of information concerning the new Star Wars sequel has been Latino-Review, and while none of it has been confirmed by anyone in a position of authority on the J.J. Abrams film, that hasn’t stopped the info from coming in on a regular basis. We’ll probably have to wait until the film’s release date next year to know how much of it is true, but somewhat closer to today there’s the matter of the teaser trailer. And according to one writer, not only are we going to see that teaser in the very near future, but they also know what’s in it. (more…)

We May Know What ‘Fantastic Four” Is About. Or Not. Probably Not.

fantastic-four-casting

If I’ve said (written) it once, I’ve said (written) it a million times: if you are going to remake, reimagine, reboot, reinvent, or whatever other “re” buzzword that Hollywood feels like using this week, a movie or franchise, you have to bring something new to the table.  As the Fantastic Four re-whatever is getting closer and closer to seeing the light of day, it is becoming more of a case of “be careful what you wish for”.  Hot off the heels of the recent Dr. Doom bomb that hit, a new synopsis for the Josh Trank helmed Fantastic Four movie is making its way through the interwebs and if it is to be believed, Trank is changing a hell of a lot more than Victor Von Doom’s origins.

FX Developing Alan Moore’s Graphic Novel ‘From Hell’ For TV

- 11-18-14Comics, Film, TV Posted by Derek Robertson

From Hell

Alan Moore’s Graphic Novels are long, intricate and complex works; lets just get that out in the open first of all. The question remains: How does one condense the complexity of a 600 page Graphic Novel and squash it into a two-hour film without having to compromise the source material? Well, quite frankly its a major directorial feat, and an almost impossible at that, just going from past film adaptations. That’s not to say the film adaptations aren’t great. Good or bad, it’s all to do with how emotionally attached one is to the source material. For example individuals’ who hadn’t read the source material for Watchmen, V For Vendetta or From Hell  might have loved some aspects of each of the movies, even though those who’ve read the source material might have a much different opinion on the adaptations. It just boils down to individual tastes really. There is probably one exception, which is the last film Sean Connery acted in before his retirement (…pretty unlucky to bow out to a universally loathed movie). We are, of course, talking about A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. (more…)
