‘The Batman’ Will Be A Noir Detective DC Film

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 22:25:43 +0000

(image)

Batman goes by many names, but none as intellectually imposing as The World's Greatest Detective. Sure he may have gizmos and gadgets at his disposal, and a lot of it helps him discover clues about the criminal underworld. But we really haven't seen a Batman film where those same detective skills are at the forefront of the character.

However, it appears that director Matt Reeves wants to bring a noir style to the world of The Batman. Pull down those Venetian blinds, and read more about what Reeves has planned for the Caped Crusader [...]

Xbox’s Free Games With Gold Lineup For July 2017

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 17:00:12 +0000

(image)

One of the very best decisions that console makers Microsoft and Sony have made, is to offer free games to those who are members of their Xbox Live Gold and PlayStation Plus programs each month. Hundreds of dollars worth of games for free each year. It makes the pill that is having to pay to play (online) much, much easier to swallow.

The four free games being offered to Xbox Live Gold members for Games With Gold in July 2017 have been revealed, and you can see what they are below along with information on each of the four titles [...]

‘Hellboy’ Reboot Director Says It Will Be R-Rated, Bloody, Have Practical Effects

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 15:00:53 +0000

(image)

The first two film adaptations of Mike Mignola's Hellboy comic series, directed by Guillermo del Toro and starring Ron Perlman in the title role, were not the greatest financial and critical successes. They did okay, especially Hellboy II: The Golden Army, but not as well as hoped. Still, the movies have a faithful fan following who were upset to learn that instead of a third movie with del Toro and Perlman, the franchise was to be rebooted with Stranger Things star David Harbour taking over for Perlman in what's currently titled Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen.

So how do you win over those skeptical fans of the original movies, and get them on board with the reboot? Well, a great start is to say it's going to be R-rated, bloody, and use as little CGI as possible, as director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) said recently [...]

Movie Review: Baby Driver

Wed, 28 Jun 2017 14:00:54 +0000

(image)

Baby Driver
Director: Edgar Wright
Screenwriters: Edgar Wright
Cast: Ansel Elgort, Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Eiza González, Jon Hamm, Jamie Foxx
Distributor: Tristar Pictures
Rated PG| 113 Minutes
Release Date: June 28, 2017

Edgar Wright's Baby Driver can be best described as a musically charged gangster film full of colorful zany characters all looking to make a big score. If Wright could write music - and he probably could - they would look, sound, and feel like this movie.

While recent car chasing heist flicks have been focusing on the big action set-piece spectacle that may look spectacular but lacks spirit and heart, Baby Driver proves that you don't need to jump out of planes (be it exploding or not) to be hip and cool. You just need a driver, the girl of your dreams, music, and the road to travel to some unknown destination [...]

Spider-Man Grabs Himself A Coffee, Surprises Customers (Video)

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 22:00:35 +0000

(image)

We're just a little over a week from the launch of the first movie in Sony Pictures' latest reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming, this time with a little help from Marvel.

To help promote the movie a fun little prank was set up, as is quite the popular viral marketing technique these days. For this one, customers at a Starbucks in New York City are first confused when the barista calls out Spider-Man's name for an order, and then surprised when Spidey himself drops down from the ceiling to pick it up. There's even a cameo from a familiar face.

Check out the video below [...]

Book Review: The Bones Of The Earth: A Bound Gods Novel By Rachel Dunne

The Bones Of The Earth
A Bound Gods Novel (Book 2)
Paperback | Kindle
By Rachel Dunne
Harper Voyager
Release Date: June 27, 2017

It's been almost exactly a year since I wrote a review extolling the virtues of Rachel Dunne's debut novel In The Shadow Of The Gods. I heaped praise upon it for the beautiful setting and extensive world building that she had created. It is therefore safe to assume that I was not at all hesitant to dive into the sequel so as to write a review prior to the release. Unfortunately, my expectations were set too high it seems. The Bones Of The Earth was not at all what I expected [...]

New Line Hires Writer For ‘The Conjuring 3’

Tue, 27 Jun 2017 18:00:10 +0000

Now that the franchise as a whole is going by the name The Conjuring Universe, we knew it was only a matter of time before The Conjuring 3 would be on the way. The first two movies making over $638 million worldwide combined probably helps as well.

It's being reported that New Line Cinema has hired The Conjuring 2 writer David Leslie Johnson to work on the script for the trilogy-maker. James Wan, who directed the first two movies and was also a writer and producer on the second installment, is expected to be involved in the project, though the report says he'll likely produce this time with a new director brought in [...]

TV Review: Preacher 2.2 “Mumbai Sky Tower”

Preacher
Episode 2.2 "Mumbai Sky Tower"
Directed by Evan Goldberg, Seth Rogen
Written by Sam Catlin
Starring Dominic Cooper, Joe Gilgun, Ruth Negga, Lucy Griffiths, W. Earl Brown, Anatol Yusef, Tom Brooke, Ian Colletti, Jackie Earle Haley, Graham McTavish, Tom Brooke, Michael Beasley, Vik Sahay
AMC
Air date: Monday, June 26th, 2017, 9pm

Preacher’s second season on AMC is NOT wasting time with two episodes in two nights. The opening ten minutes of Sunday night’s premiere was just awesome, combining all the elements that Preacher fans have come to expect; quick witted dialogue, hellacious and gory violence, and screwball comedy. Jesse (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga) and Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are on the road searching for God. Meanwhile the Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish) is searching for them, and he’s leaving no stone unturned. The trio ended up in a fleabag motel and in a touching moment, Jesse literally broke down the door for Tulip. But alas, you can’t relax for long when you’re being stalked by a cowboy from Hell.

"You haven't got a prayer..."

Directed by Cuban-American filmmaker Camilo Vila (Resurrection Blvd.), 1988's The Unholy is a cheesy '80s ripoff of '70s "prestige horror" films like The Exorcist, The Omen, and The Sentinel. Now available on Blu-ray thanks to Lionsgate's Vestron Video Collector's Series, this demonic possession flick is concerned with Catholic priests, young and old alike, doing spiritual battle with a sexy-but-demonic force [...]

Syfy has ordered a pilot episode for a potential TV series based on the monster movie franchise Tremors. The series, as we learned when its development was first announced a couple of years back, comes from Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Television.

The news was confirmed by Kevin Bacon, who's set to executive produce and star in the series, reprising his role as Valentine McKee. Bacon played the role in the 1990 original movie, but did not return for any of the four sequels that have been produced since then [...]

Is it just me or does there seem to be an uptick in the number of Sherlock Holmes adaptations/re-imaginings of late? Movies, television, comics, you name it. Luckily, quite a few of them have been entertaining and, in some cases, astounding.

New ‘Star Wars’ Han Solo Spinoff Details Reveal A Very Troubled Set

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 20:13:16 +0000

Though the Star Wars spinoffs are meant to expand on the universe, they aren't without problems. Director Josh Trank was let go from the now in limbo Boba Fett film, and Gareth Edwards's Rogue One had to go through extensive reshoots with the help of Tony Gilroy. Now comes Phil Lord and Chris Miller being fired from their duty as directors of the still untitled Han Solo film over creative differences. The two were soon after replaced by Ron Howard. But it is why they were fired and the timing of it all that has many of us fascinated about what was going on behind the scenes [...]

TV Review: The Mist 1.1 Pilot

Mon, 26 Jun 2017 19:00:46 +0000

The Mist
Episode 1.1 "Pilot"
Created & Written by Christian Torpe
Directed by Adam Bernstein
Starring Morgan Spector, Alyssa Sutherland, Gus Birney, Danica Curcic, Okezie Morro, Luke Cosgrove, Darren Pettie, Russell Posner, Dan Butler, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Frances Conroy
Network: Spike TV
Air date: June 22, 2017


In 2007, Frank Darabont brought Stephen King’s novella The Mist to the big screen and created one of the most jaw-dropping horror films in memory. The story was simple enough: a mysterious mist engulfs a small Maine town. The townfolk flock to a supermarket as monsters begin devouring those left outside. The monsters from the mist end up producing monsters inside as the people quickly turn to fanaticism and violence on each other. The film’s ending is one of legends. I won’t spoil it, but those in my theater were left speechless and motionless throughout the entire credits. A decade later, Danish writer/director Christian Torpe brings the King work to the small screen for a ten-episode run on Spike TV. This is the first of three major adaptations of King’s work coming this year with The Dark Tower due out in theaters in August and the remake of It in September [...]

Written by Marc Halsey
Created by James Roland
Starring Alan Ritchson, Christina Ochoa, Thomas Dominique, Marama Corlett, Colin Cunningham, Andrew Hall, Darren Kent
FOX
Air Date: Wednesday, June 21st, 2017, 10pm

SyFy’s latest series Blood Drive is the lovechild of James Roland, a tearful ode to grindhouse exploitation cinema of the 70s and 80s. Last week on the series premiere, we were dropped head first into the rotating gears of a dystopian future after a huge fracking earthquake rips the US apart, resulting in a world where gas is obscenely expensive, and cars run on blood. There is an evil all-powerful corporation, Heart Enterprises, and when two cops stumble onto Julian Slink (Colin Cunningham) and his Blood Drive death race, things do not end up well for them. Arthur is thrown into the race, while Christopher ends up knee deep in robot clones.

Spoilers below [...]

Finally! Preacher returns to AMC for Season 2 and Preacher Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), Tulip (Ruth Negga), and Irish vampire Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun) are, as the title suggest, “on the road.” Last season, Jesse was possessed by Genesis, an all powerful half-godly/half-demonic force. It’s so powerful that angels from Heaven came looking for him and it, and they’re hilariously unsuccessful at retrieving it. Jesse feeling revitalized by the power of Genesis tries to save his small Texas town of Annville and bring them the voice of God himself, except for one problem: God is missing. Annville finds this out full force when a methane gas explosion wipes out everyone in the town except for three who happen to be eating at a roadside diner on the outskirt of town… you guessed who. The search for God begins… NOW [...]
