Tim Sale has put his stamp on a lot of comics’ biggest characters, his work with writer Jeph Loeb is amongst some of the best to come out of the printing press in the last 20 years. The work of the duo on collections like Batman: The Long Halloween, Superman For All Season, Spider-Man Blue, Daredevil Yellow, and their recently completed Captain America White, have not just satisfied comic book readers, but influenced the makers of the live-action movie counterparts of the characters. Talking to Tim Sale though, who appears this weekend at Fan Expo Canada in Toronto, you can tell that he’s a thoughtful guy that cares very much about the state of his art form. We talked about how the industry has changed for better and worse, his orderly way of managing his con commitments, and his memories of the dear departed Darwyn Cooke. (more…)
Not long ago pop culture was in a vampire rage. Thanks to Twilight, we couldn’t get enough of vampire love stories. The film series based on Stephenie Meyer’s books Grossed more than $3 billion collectively. Then came True Blood on HBO based on The Southern Vampire Mysteries by author Charlaine Harris. That series gave us 6 successful seasons on HBO. Recently we have The Strain on FX, which was a much darker, grittier vampire story based on the book trilogy by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan. While The Strain is still on the air, we haven’t heard much in the vampire territory for a little while, until now.
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con fans of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) thought they were just going to get the standard Hall H Panel for the upcoming Justice League film. Hopefully, the stars of the upcoming film would come out and boast about how great it will be, perhaps see a few pictures of the cast in action. Little did they know that they would actually get to see a trailer for the film a full year before it was released? Based on fans reactions, it looks like DC is moving in the right direction. The film had a much lighter tone than previous DCEU films and we got to see everyone (except Superman of course).
But with the Internet being the Internet, something weird had to come out of it. Enter Aldo Jones. Jones is a YouTube personality who does crazy editing for the trailers of mainly superhero films and strikes comedy gold out of them. The videos don’t have to make any sense, but they are funny as hell. Jones decided to give the new Justice League trailer a try. (more…)
For the entirety of 2016 it’s seemed like not a week has gone by without the loss of a major luminary in the fields of film, music and sport, and now, so it seems, we couldn’t even make it to Labour Day without Death’s swift hand catching another one. More sad news today from Hollywood (or rather Connecticut to be precise) that actor/writer/producer/director Gene Wilder has passed away after a long battle with illness. His nephew, Jordan Walker-Pearlman, announced that Wilder died from complications from Alzheimer’s disease earlier today at the age of 83. Left behind is a legacy of laughter in many signature roles from one of the most brilliant comedic actors of the 60s, 70s and 80s. (more…)
Ever since it’s release in 2009, whispers in the halls have teased the possibility of the Zombieland story continuing, but with every dashed hope fans continued to stuff their proverbial sadness with Twinkies. Well fans can stop their emotional eating, because during AMC’s Geeking Out with Kevin Smith and Greg Grunberg, Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese provided an update on Zombieland 2.
Well, that came out of left field. Unless Ben Affleck got hacked, he just posted a video to his official twitter that will have fan boys and girls gleefully geeking out across the Internet. What could cause such an uproar? Hopefully this isn’t a hack or prank because Affleck just posted a video of Deathstroke, one of the coolest villains in the DC multi-verse. Check out the tweet and video below. (more…)
Are you getting tired of the usual superhero summer movie glut from Marvel and DC? John Oliver thinks there just might be enough of you out there ready for something new and he’s just the guy to pitch you and hopefully a bored studio executive wandering Youtube. Quick, ease up from your chair, look over the top of your cubicle and make sure the coast is clear, then take a couple of minutes out of your hectic work day to watch this video pitch. It’s the smart way to start your work week. (more…)
It’s been a long and rocky road for the HBO series Westworld, but it will soon be on our TV screens, ready to entice us to a wonderful and vividly realized fantasy land where danger lurks around every corner and nothing is as it seems. There’s a lot of pressure on this show as HBO needs a hit; none of its new shows have made much of an impact as of late, and Game of Thrones only has two truncated seasons left to it. So with absolutely no pressure at all, Westworld better impress us immediately, right? Well, not to worry because given the pedigree, and this new trailer below, it seems that Westworld may be the closest thing to a guaranteed hit for the new TV season. (more…)
