Was that really 20 years ago? The Lion King became the biggest animated film of its time exactly 20 summers ago this year, and although Disney’s already franchised it with two direct-to-video sequels, a TV series spin-off and a Broadway show, the House of Mouse is once again getting goofy for the lion, and has announced that a new sequel series is in the works for the Disney Junior channel. With the full understanding of how you just can’t wait for more information about this show, let’s look at what Disney has in store. (more…)

He’s played Batman longer than anybody, and he hasn’t had to spent even one day in the costume (unless, of course, he did so recreationally). Actor Kevin Conroy has been THE voice of Batman since Batman: The Animated Series first premiered in the fall of 1992 on Fox. Conroy’s voiced the Caped Crusader and his alter ego Bruce Wayne in roughly 10 series, seven movies and eight video games, and recently he did an interview with DC Comics to recount his nearly quarter of a century (?!?!?!) in the Batcave.

Dafuq!? “Scientifically Accurate Ducktales”

- 07-24-13Funny Videos, WTF? Posted by Luke Gallagher

ducktales.1363971225

Being a child of the 80′s and early 90′s, one of my favorite cartoons was Ducktales. A show about Scrooge McDuck and his three grandnephews, Huey, Dewey and Louie. They set off on all sorts of adventures, with key secondary characters, like Donald Duck, Launchpad McQuack, Gyro Gearloose, and the nanny Mrs. Beakley and her granddaughter Webby. Now, leave it to the Internet to ruin everything!

Fox’s Animation Domination is back again with “Scientifically Accurate” cartoon. This one, based on DuckTales, is just as disgusting and informative as their Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video.

Vagina mazes, corkscrew penises, rape and cannibalism…yeah, sometimes I don’t want to know the truth. Traumatizing nightmare fuel this is. That’s enough Internet for today.

 

Live Action ‘Gatchaman’ Production Has a New Trailer

- 06-21-13Comics, Cosplay, Film, TV Posted by Mark Poynter

gatchaman-livebig

The first full trailer for director Toya Sato‘s live action film, Gatchaman has hit the Internet. Gatchaman was known in the States as the much watered down anime versions, Battle of the Planets and G-Force. You might remember a teaser trailer that came out a couple of weeks ago, it’s the second video below if you don’t and haven’t seen it yet.

That teaser was incredible and full of action. This trailer . . . not so much. Hopefully when we get a translated or sub-titled version of the trailer it might help, but as it is, the trailer is choppy and doesn’t have that same energy of the teaser that blew me away.

The cast includes Tori Matsuzaka as the teams leader Ken, Go Ayrano as the second in command Jo, Ayame Gorikias as Jun, Tatsuomi Hamada as young Jinpei, and Ryohei Suzuki as the pilot Ryu.

The five serve as agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo at the beginning of the 21st century. Galactor, a mysterious group whose technology far surpasses that of humans, has declared war on the entire world and has already subjugated half of it. A mysterious crystal-like object called a “stone,” is humanity’s only hope. Those who are able to draw out the power of the “stones” are forced to train as Earth’s ultimate weapon, a five-person team called “Gatchaman.”

The theme song was the big reveal in this trailer. Bump of Chicken is the band and are apparently a big deal in Japan and the only choice for director Sato. Stay for the ending credits, that’s where you can check out the new music.

Watch the trailer and met me on the other side for more.

Here’s the teaser for those that haven’t seen it yet.

The “feel” of the trailer seems disjointed, or is it just me? The fiery phoenix looks cool and was a trademark on the animated series. I can’t wait to see some of the Cosplay that will come out of these movie, those suits look pretty bad-ass.

What did you think of this trailer?
