New York Comic Con

The Best Toys From New York Comic Con

Regardless of if you came to New York Comic Con (NYCC) for an elusive comic book, statue, or some hard to find toy, you were sure to find something on the show floor that was worth taking a hammer to your piggy bank. Unless, of course, you dealt with that heartbreaking sensation of falling in love with a collectible that wasn’t yet available for sale. Regardless, you have to admit that these showcases were filled with a ton of collector eye candy. And so, we gathered a few highlights from our journey across the floor. Enjoy and try not to drool on your keyboard. (more…)

Rise of the Planet of the Apes, the 2011 Fox reboot of the iconic science fiction movie series, was a triumph of cinema. It drew on a story that is already deeply ingrained in western culture and managed to make it original in its own right. The movie was nominated for multiple awards for acting and writing and special effects – arguably one of year’s greatest displays of what animation technology can do now. Huge acclaim for Andy Serkis‘s performance as Caeser the ape drew a huge amount of attention to the film as one of the earliest commendations for performance capture work. (more…)

Frank Miller Says New ‘Sin City’ Series Coming

Dame-to-Kill-for-Comic-Book

Relax, this is comic book news, not TV news. You’re first reaction, like mine, might have been that the idea of a Sin City TV series was a bad one given how the last movie, A Dame to Kill For, turned out. But more Sin City comic books? Sure, why not? That’s another piece of news that’s come out of New York Comic-Con, which is currently going on through Sunday at the Javits Center. While at a press conference for the new, highly anticipated The Dark Knight III: The Master Race, Miller reveled that he’s still working daily, and is ready to revisit a hive of scum and villainy worse than Gotham, Basin City.

howard-the-duck-movie

Remember before the last 10 seconds of Guardians of the Galaxy when everyone thought that trying to re-make a Howard the Duck movie was a monumentally bad idea? Well, it didn’t take too long after the post-credits scene of GOTG for people to start talking about the greatness of Howard. Heck, he even has his own self-titled comic book again. Despite the renewed love for Howard the Duck, the man that voiced him in the blockbuster Marvel Studios film says that there are still no plans to make another Howard the Duck movie, even with three new mysterious release dates that were revealed yesterday.

You’ll recall that during San Diego Comic Con this year, there was something of a crisis concerning long line-ups and people having to wait well into the wee hours of the morning to just get the wrist bands that would allow you to access the panels taking place the next day. Why bother? The panels in Hall H is where the news is made, people, and everyone wants to be there to get news first. So why not just put the panels online, and live-stream them so that the people who just want the news can watch it somewhere more comfortable and convenient. Well, the team at New York Comic-Con thinks that’s a good idea. (more…)

It’s the year 2015, and so we have to ask the question, Where’s my hoverboard?! In the movie Back to the Future Part II, the first part of which takes place in the year 2015, we were promised hoverboards, flying cars, easy to access plastic surgery, fax machines in all corners of the house, and, most importantly, double knot ties. Well, a good consolation prize, I guess, is to drink a futuristic Pepsi. In conjunction with the 30th anniversary of the release of Back to the Future, Pepsi is releasing a limited edition Pepsi bottle that looks like it was ordered from the Cafe 80s itself. Cue the “Beat It!” and Ronald Reagan TV waiter. (more…)

Clooney Issues 56,342nd Apology for ‘Batman & Robin’

clooney_batman

Batman & Robin was nearly 20 years ago now. Yeah. In that time George Clooney has become an accomplished writer, director, producer and an Academy Award-winning actor. He’s worked with a variety of collaborators like Steven Soderbergh, the Coen Brothers, Alexander Payne, and Alfonso Cuaron, hardly the sort of hackery that became associated with B&R director Joel Schumacher back in the summer of ’97. You might say that Batman & Robin was Clooney’s original sin, and he’s paying the price for it these last two decades. So in the interest of continued penance, Clooney was once again called to apologize while doing a round of promotion for his new movie Tomorrowland. (more…)
