Captain America: The First Avenger

We all know how far people will go when it comes to making sure their Cosplay outfits are up to scratch. With a myriad conventions becoming worldwide institutions and attracting bigger crowds every year such as San Diego Comic Con, the photographs of some of these outfits are sublime. Moreover, in recent years there have been outfits that have been the result of much blood, sweat and tears, such as the vast array of superhero outfits like Xenomorphs, Predators, Mech Suits and Iron Man replicas that provide us all with something to marvel at (did you see what I did there?). As it stands, most people know just how far to take it but there are always a minority of individuals’ out there that like to take things that little bit further, toying with the translucent lines of societal norms. Which brings us to this absolutely insane Redskull cosplay (more…)

This just might be the one problem in space and time itself the good Doctor can’t talk his way out of, or fix with the quick use of his sonic screwdriver. A couple in Florida built a replica TARDIS, because: (A.) They are huge fans of the show, and (B.) They wanted to use it in their wedding photos. Their themed wedding pictures went off without a hitch and the happy couple found a spot, temporary most likely, for the TARDIS in the driveway. Then the one power in the universe that even the Doctor wisely fears reared its ugly head, the dreaded Lexington Home Owners Association of Tampa Florida. (more…)

Interview

Making headlines this week is the magnanimous decision from Sony Pictures to pull Seth Rogen and James Franco‘s The Interview from theatrical release.

The hackers that lifted the curtain to Sony’s internal workings threatened violent actions against theaters showing The Interview.  Despite The Department of Homeland Security citing no credible information to indicate an actual threat, Sony had allowed theaters to make the decision to show the film or not. With theater chains defecting en masse, Sony Pictures Entertainment has pulled the planned Christmas release of The Interview.

Did Sony not see White House Down? – “We Do Not Negotiate With Terrorists!”. This reaction has sent a powerful message to terrorists. Sad day. Here’s why… (more…)

Tim and Batman

Tim Burton has been doing the promotion circuit for his new film Big Eyes – which, surprisingly, doesn’t star a dressed up idiosyncratic-characteristic Johhny Depp, or a gothic looking Helena Bonham Carter –  which is due to be released on Christmas day. Talking about everything from Beetlejuice 2 being closer than ever going into production, to how he has missed working with Michael Keaton, and now he has been talking about the superhero comic book genre and how much it has changed in the last 20 years. Burton, who isn’t usually one for too much controversy, has hit out with a belter of an opinion which will no doubt be splitting comic book fans and film fans down the middle. (more…)

It really is incredible just how much information the hackers that hit Sony really gathered.  Some of the information may be old and moot by this point but much of the information stemming from the leaked emails seems to be fairly fresh, which makes this newest tidbit very interesting.  According to The Daily Beast, who claim to have “spent days and days sifting through hundreds of thousands of email correspondences between Sony execs”, it appears that Fox may be planning a huge crossover event that would feature both the Fantastic Four and the X-Men.

Riker

The internet is an interesting beast.  While a movie or franchise can spend millions on marketing a legitimately good movie, trolls across the planet can have it all tumble down with a few harsh keystrokes.  On the other end of the spectrum, the internet has also helped get many projects off the ground that may have never even initiated lift off had it not been for the online campaigns that insisted the projects come to fruition, e.g. Veronica Mars and Deadpool.   Well, it looks like the net may have done it again, this time in the form of William T. Riker aka Jonathon Frakes.  Thanks, in part, to an online campaign, it appears that Frakes has reached out to Paramount Pictures in an effort to helm the next voyage to the final frontier.
