Deadline reported a few days ago that Guillermo Del Toro is working with HBO to concoct a show based on Monster, a manga written by one of the masters of suspense, Naoki Urasawa (2oth Century Boys, Billy Bat). This makes me a happy camper and if I was any happier, I’d be pitching a tent big enough for a summer camp. Guillermo (we’re bros) first took this project to New Line Cinema to adapt it as a movie, but the story proved to be too dense and complex to fit into a feature length film. Also, he’s working with Sherlock and Doctor Who scribe, Steven Thompson, in order to bring Urasawa’s vision to live action format. Continue Reading
So we should all know by now that Clark Gregg’s character, Agent Coulson, bit the proverbial dust in The Avengers. But soon afterwards, we were treated with the news that he would make his return in Agents of SHIELD, a brand new television series that will take place in the Marvel cinematic universe, but with much more focus on the human efforts against cosmic threats and general villainy.

J.J. Abrams, my bro that I hardly know, did an interview with Playboy about juggling multiple science fiction juggernauts (and Cloverfield). Probably not a good idea to open that link at work, but I’ve put together some bullet points for you guys because I love each and everyone of you to a point. Continue Reading
We all know that Warner Brothers is waiting to see how well Man of Steel does in the box office before pulling the trigger on their Justice League project, but another information surfaced recently about who could possibly helm the potentially bank breaking film: Zack Snyder. It really doesn’t come as a surprise to hear his name being in consideration, but I think this pretty much kills off all rumors of Christopher Nolan being up for that task, not that anybody was holding their breath or anything.

While not as explosive or block buster shattering as it was last year, we’re still getting a good solid crop of comic book adaptations coming out soon, starting with Iron Man 3. So which movie are you anticipating the most? Are you on board with Tony Stark and his legion of armors or are you excited for Superman’s second cinematic brawl against his fellow Kryptonian, Zod? Perhaps you’re itching for that ultra violent ass kicking that Kick-Ass 2 is sure to deliver or are you eagerly waiting for the Ernest-esque Wolverine’s vacation to Japan? What about a true sequel to Sin City that we’ve all been waiting for for the last decade? Are you excited for Thor and Loki’s team up in Thor: The Dark World more than Bruce Willis and John Malkovich’s team up in Red 2?

Thor always gets the least amount of anticipation from me mostly because I am not as invested nor interested in the character, but I suppose I’m not alone on that front. Despite my general “meh” attitude towards the cantankerous Norse god, I enjoyed his first solo outing and there’s no reason not to give this sequel a chance. In fact, after having seen the trailer for it, it appears that it’s taken some notes on how to improve upon the first film. Continue Reading
Ryan Gosling reunites with the director of Drive, Nicolas Winding Refn, to deliver a highly stylized revenge flick with presumably another interesting soundtrack. The bright orange and pink neon colors of this new flick is very reminiscent of their previous efforts together, which I assume will now be a “thing” for them, much like the creepy yet endearing style of Tim Burton is his “thing.” Continue Reading
