Quick! View the comic con trailer for Thor, before Marvel takes it down!


When it comes to classic horror H.P. Lovecraft rules supreme. Tales of maddening confusion, unimaginable horror, and disturbing imagery, whether you love him or hate him there are very little storytellers like Lovecraft. However, it is not surprising that there has yet to be a Lovecraftian film adaptation.


However, it appears that this may well change in coming years. Deadline reports today that veteran fantasy horror director Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) plans to adapt Lovecraft's most famous tale At the Mountains of Madness. Oscar winning director James Cameron will also assist in providing technical support, and apparently 3D effects. Del Toro will also write the script along with Matthew Robbins (Mimic). Even though Del Toro is incredibly excited for the film, and is passionate about the project, he still expresses concern for how the film will perform: "It's R-rated and it's expensive and it doesn't have a happy ending."

There are few science fiction franchises as treasured as Alien. Although its more recent outings have not reached the quality of the series original two entries, Alien still has a rabid fanbase and millions of supporters worldwide.


Which is why when Ridley Scott, the director of the original Alien, announced that he planned to release a prequel to the original film, fans were noticeably excited. While the project seemed dormant for months, yesterday news reached Deadline that Lost writer Damon Lindelof will be writing the final draft of the script. Lindelof mentioned numerous times that he is very enthusiastic about working on the project, and that the original Alien was one of his inspirations.


Interestingly, reports say that talks between Scott and Lindelof have been full of energy and may have actually deviated from the original plans for the film. It is entirely possible that the two may continue their work into an entirely original science fiction project.

As reported back in June, Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Predators) was approached by Marvel and 20th Century Fox on directing the movie adaptation of the comedic mercenary Deadpool, who will be played by Ryan Reynolds.


Rodriguez let slip today to MTV that he was recently sent the early draft of the Deadpool script, written by Zombieland scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The studio heads had apparently taken notice of the director following his finished work on Predators. However, Rodriguez insists that even with the studio's increased interest with him taking the role that he is still tied down with other projects including the fourth Spy Kids film and a possible Sin City sequel.

Regardless of whether he will end up directing, Rodriguez is incredibly positive about the direction the film is taking at the moment. The director claimed that the current treatment for the Merc with a Mouth was "really good". He also confirmed that Deadpool will in fact break the fourth wall and speak to the audience repeatedly throughout the movie. Rodriguez was also supportive of Ryan Reynolds, who helped to draft the script, role in the production.

Even though pre-production on the newest Superman reboot is well underway, casting for the title character has still been a relative mystery to the general population.


Rumors have been swirling that Chuck star Zachary Levi may play the Man of Steel in the Christopher Nolan produced film, but today news has risen to the internet that yet another actor may be in the running to play the world's most famous super hero.


According to Comicbookmovie.com, Mad Men star John Hamm is being "seriously considered" for the role. While there is no official word yet, WB still has some time to pick an actor. We won't be seeing The Man of Steel until late 2012.

With the Transformers franchise rounding out production later this year, it appears that the master of explosions Micheal Bay has begun searching for a new project.

According to Heat Vision, Bay has put his sites on a new science fiction project written by newcomer Bobby Glickert. This new project has been referred to as a mix between Cloverfield and Paranormal Activity, and will feature Area 51 as a plot point. Bay will produce the project along with Paranormal Activity 2 producer Steven Schneider.

While Dracula may not actually be joining the X-men anytime soon, it appears that yet another star has been added to the already expansive X-men:First Class cast.

According to Deadline New York, Edi Gathegi, who played the vampire Laurent in the first two Twilight movies, has been cast as the mutant Darwin for the upcoming Matthew Vaughn directed prequel. Darwin stands about among mutants for having the power of reactive evolution, which allows him to adapt to any environment or situation.


X-men: First Class is due out for release June 3 2011.

Marvel has always been lacking when it comes to the animated world. While it has had such amazing series as the Spectacular Spider-man and X-men: Evolution, the comic book company is repeatedly outmatched by its competitor DC when it comes to animation. However, this looks to change with an upcoming series of Marvel inspired anime scheduled to be released on G4 developed by critically acclaimed studio Madhouse.

Last summer at SDCC, Marvel announced Iron Man and Wolverine, and today Blade and X-men were confirmed as the latter two adaptations. All four will air in 2011 throughout the coures of the year.

Each series will consist of 12 half hour episodes with heavy Asian influence added to the existing back story based off the Marvel comics. Each story line was outlined by Marvel veteran Warren Ellis and later scripted by Madhouse.

It's Monday again! More slightly funny web videos!

1. Dog at the Beach
------------------------------------------------------------------

This may not be the newest viral to hit the Internet, but this hysterical glimpse at a dog and its rather eccentric owner is one of my favorite videos to hit the net this year.


2. Classic Viral: Boxxy...
----------------------------------------------------------------

Here we go...It was only a matter of time kiddies. Boxxy has come to Artificial Continuum. If you are unfamiliar with the hyperactive and bizarre phenomena this girl spawned then you may consider yourself lucky. However, Boxxy may be best known for causing the largest and most intricate flamewar ever seen on the popular Internet website 4Chan.com. For those wanting to here the full story of Boxxy click here.

3. Deadpool Sings Comic Con Song
---------------------------------------------------


Yes, I'm aware some of you may be tired of the Marvel vs. DC videos, but this fun look at the craziness that is SDCC is deffinetly one of the highlights of this week on Youtube.

While the X-men prequel, X-men Origins: Wolverine, was not the best received movie in the world, a sequel has been in production since last year and now 20th Century Fox has begun the long task of finding a director that will hopefully bring a better take on the franchise.

According to ThePlaylist.com, Cloverfield director Matt Reeves and Man on Fire director Tony Scott are the two most discussed names over at Fox. Other less likely candidates include Kathryn Bigelow (Hurt Locker)and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted). However, due to numerous scheduling conflicts it appears that the job may indeed fall into Reeves's hands.

Wolverine 2 will follow the clawed mutants violent trip to Japan and his mastering of Japanese martial arts. The script, adapted from the comic written by Frank Miller and Chris Claremont, was written by Christopher McQuarrie.

Believe it or not it has only been three years since Marvel turned the entire Spider-man fanbase on its head with their controversial One More Day storyline. This story ,which not only ended Peter Parker's 2o year marriage (in reality) but introduced a new creative team, has had a mixed reception by fans and critics alike.

However, it appears that after three years of a thrice monthly release schedule and a shifting creative team that the Brand New Day era is about to end. Whether this means that Spider-man's marriage will return is unknown, but coming next year Spidey will have a new creative team.

Despite this change in ranks, the current creative team claims that they are ending their run on the popular franchise with a bang. This September marks the start of a five part saga focusing on the chaos surrounding Lilly Hollister's goblin baby. Every villain introduced since the start of the run (including those seen in the Gauntlet redesigns) will make an appearance and will force Parker to edge to save his himself and those close to him.


The newest series set to be written solely by Spider-man veteran Dan Slott will feature several different artists (Humberto Ramos, Marcos Martin and Stefano Caselli). Slott also teased that the latest series will feature the return of several classic villains including Mac Gargan returning to his role of Scorpion (after a seven year run as the latest incarnation of Venom).


On related news, the psychotic symbiote Carnage will be returning to Marvel comics after a five year absence. Returning in a five part mini series, the symbiote will find a new host (this time a female) and will take on long time foes Spider-man and Iron Man. This series written by Zeb Wells and drawn by Clayton Craid (one of my personal favorite artists) will feature multiple symbiotes including Anti-Venom.

Among the excitement created by the Avengers panel, it is easy to forget the numerous other announcements and panels Marvel has put forth this year. Among these was our first look at the upcoming Captain America adaptation directed by Joe Johnston.



Footage of both the Red Skull and the Captain himself debuted to screaming fanboys at Marvel's film panel this year. For full descriptions of the videos screened, please visit IGN.com: here.



The panel also revealed that Rogers would not be recieving the serum that makes him the title character until closer to the end of the film. It was also revealed that the final scense of the movie will in fact take place in present day.

With the excitement surrounding the upcoming Thor, Captain America, and Avengers films, little attention has been given to Marvel's lesser known characters that may soon be be getting screen adaptations of their own.


Marvel Studio head Kevin Feige hinted at several projects yesterday during their extensive and nergasm inducing movie panel. Feige did confirm that Doctor Strange is the next project the studio plans to undertake once the Avengers has finished production. Feige also hinted at taking on the Black Panther and Iron Fist, due to their critically well received recent comic book runs.


However, perhaps the most surprising announcement was that Marvel is still considering the possibility of another Punisher adaptation. Despite the poor performance of both previous outings for the gun toting anti-hero, it appears that Marvel is still in talks to keep their edgiest hero on the big screen.
Although I am not a fan of DC comics or its universe, I have to say I was rather impressed by this six minute preview into the world of the upcoming MMO DC Universe.

Marvel has officially won Comic Con with perhaps the most impressive movie panel of all time.


Following the end of the comic book company's panel for the upcoming Thor adaptation, a teaser for the upcoming Avengers film slipped its way onto the massive screen overlooking the audience. As the logo for the film slowly grew on the screen Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury recited the most famous quote in the history of the Avengers: "And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth's Mightiest Heroes found themselves united against a common threat. On that day...the Avengers were born."


Following the end of the teaser, Jackson himself stepped onto stage and slowly introduced the entire cast of the film as the joined him on stage: Scarlet Johansen as Black Widow, Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor, and introducing Mark Ruffalo as the Hulk and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye. Finally, Robert Downey Jr. himself stepped on stage.


With a triumphant statement of confidence, he welcomed writer and director Joss Whedon himself up. As the the applause of the theater grew to a deafening roar, Whedon and Downey Jr. addressed the issues regarding the ambition of the project. Both assured the crowd of screaming fans that the project was indeed in good hands. And for once in a convention so often filled with cynicism, everyone agreed.

Although officially announced yesterday, the news has finally leaked to the outside world. Space combat will be a part of Star Wars: The Old Republic. The exact mechanics are unknown as of the moment, but will be fully revealed in the October issue of PC Gamer due out August 17th.


To hold us over until then, Bioware Community Leader Sean Dahlberg has dropped the following blurb: "If you’ve been following the news coming out of the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ panel at Comic-Con International, you’ve heard the announcement that we will indeed have Space Combat as part of the TOR experience! But what does that mean? Space combat is an alternative gameplay experience to the primary game of storytelling, questing, and ground-based combat. In space combat, you fly your personal ship to various “hot spots” on your galaxy map. From there, you will blast your way through asteroid fields, enemy fighters, frigates, destroyers, and a variety of other obstacles that will evoke memories of some of the great Star Wars™ space battles."


More news on this gameplay development as it is released.

It appears that the Hulk has finally been cast. After several weeks of rumors and leaked names it appears that actor Mark Ruffalo has landed the role.

According to Deadline Hollywood, the The Kids Are All Right actor has just recently signed a contract to appear as the angry green giant in the upcoming superhero adaptation. An official announcement should not be far down the road.

Perhaps one of the biggest sleeper announcements at this year's Comic Con is further news on the upcoming Legendary Pictures Godzilla reboot. While not an actual announcement, Legendary has begun handing out a cool new shirt that reveals the design of the King of the Monsters for the upcoming Godzilla film. The shirt in addition to offering the first ever glimpse at the film, also features a cool web cam feature featuring Godzilla's trademark beam, seen below.


An official trailer has been released for the upcoming season of Clone Wars, which will feature the return of Aurra Sing, Cad Bane, and Asajj Ventress. Apologies for the poor video quality, a clearer version can be found here on the official Star Wars website.



My Opinion: While there are some impressive visuals and I am happy to see the return of more clone centric episodes and Bane, I am rather concerned about this upcoming season. Season two was great because it steered clean away from many of the issues that made the first season such a mess. While we have yet to see the return of Jar Jar Binks, we do have the disturbing homosexual caricature of Zero the Hutt. Also, I'm not sure what I think of 3P0 centric episode, a character that has not been done well since the original trilogy.
Joss Whedon has been dropping alot of hints about his upcoming megablockbuster The Avengers. While the project has rumored for years and casting hints have been leaked onto the internet for months now, for the first time Whedon has confirmed and denied numerous peices of information that have leaked onto the Internet.

Thanks to an interview with ontheredcarpet.com (seenbelow), the Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator confirmed that Academy Award nominated actor Jeremy Renner will in fact be playing the arrow shooting Hawkeye in the comic book adaptation.






Also, in less positive news. Whedon has dropped some conflicting and confusing reports about fan favorite actor Nathan Fillion playing the role of Ant Man. Fillion (Firefly)has been rumored to play the size changing super hero for months, and yesterday Whedon appeared to confirm his appearance in the film. However, Marvel has issued a statement claiming that Whedon's apparent announcement was in fact a joke. Since then the director has gone on record with the following quote: "Nathan Fillion is Ant-Man, unfortunately Ant-Man isn't really in the movie."

What exactly that means will be left up to interpretation.

One of the most exciting and informative panels at Comic Con's infamous Hall H yesterday was the JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon press conference. Together the two discussed not only film itself, but their upcoming projects in the internet as well as for the movie industry.


While Abrams mostly discussed his latest project Super 8, Whedon dropped several hints regarding some of his most anticipated projects. First off, the Firefly creator confirmed that he will indeed be directing the upcoming adaptation of the Avengers. He also offered a quick preview on why he took the job and his take on the storied comic book franchise. According to Whedon, what entices him to the project is the bizarre pairing the team presents. The director stresses that he wants to tell a story about why the team is together and about the "family" aspect that is a core feature of the comic series.


During the panel, Whedon also addressed questions about the upcoming Dr. Horrible sequel. He insisted that plans to create a follow up for the popular web based movie are still in existence, but are far from being realized at the moment. However, Whedon did mention that the general plot and several of the musical numbers have already been written.

Although it has yet to begin filming, the mysterious science fiction project Super 8 ,created by acclaimed director JJ Abrams, has already garnered a sizable internet following.


The project, which follows an escaped creature/object from Area 51, first debuted its teaser trailer in front of Iron Man 2 earlier this summer. Its mysterious style and lack of detail has garnered mass viral speculation akin to Abrams's other project Cloverfield.


However, despite the lack of details shrouding this project, Abrams did reveal several small details surrounding the upcoming 2011 science fiction film. Shooting for Super 8 will begin in September of this year and will not be involved with any 3D technology. Interestingly, Abrams also confirmed that Super 8 will be tonally similar to Steven Spielberg's, who is producing the film, works from the 70's.

Although not the best made film or the biggest financial success of the season, the science fiction horror film Predators has been considered a success by most of the team involved.


In fact, we may be seeing more the spiderlike aliens in the near future. Last night, Predators producer Robert Rodriguez announced to IGN.com that he and the studio are in fact considering a sequel. As Rodriguez put it, this year's sequel to 1980's cult classic was in many ways designed to test the water for future films in the franchise. With the profitability of future Predators films assured, Rodriguez claims that he has already begun hunting for script ideas that fit his general picture for the future of the franchise. If a sequel will in fact be made, Rodriguez will return to produce but doubts he will direct.

When Astro City first launched in 1995 it was a massive critical success. The story revolving around several a typical superheroes fending off even stranger supervillains won numerous awards and captured the minds of a rather avid fanbase.

Deadline Hollywood announced today that movie studio Working Title has bought the rights for the acclaimed series for an upcoming movie adaptation. The script will be written by one of the co-creators of the original comic series Kurt Busiek.
With Comic-con kicking into full gear, Activision has taken time to grant us with a new look at the upcoming Spider-man game. If you ask me, things are shaping up pretty nicely.


Science fiction has taken hold of the independent film business. With films like District 9 and Moon taking the critical and pop cultural world by storm, it is no surprise that small time filmmakers everywhere are taking advantage of this new age of technology to bring us a wide range of science fiction fantasy films. One such movie is the upcoming alien horror action film, Skyline.

Skyline is a completely independent science fiction film created by the Brothers Strause, the team behind Alien vs Predator: Requiem. The film follows characters played by Donald Faison (Scrubs), Eric Balfour (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), David Zayas (Dexter) and Scottie Thompson (Star Trek) as the struggle to survive and understand a mysterious and dangerous otherworldly prescience. As the group struggles to survive they have to face mysterious blue lights, gigantic space craft, and monstrous organic beings who are ravaging their hometown of Los Angeles.

The Brothers Strause stress the fact that they had no outside input at all when shooting the film. The actors didn't even have trailers. However, this is not to say that the work the team has done on Skyline is unprofessional. The team has hired acclaimed special effects studio Hydraulx (Avatar, 300, Iron Man 2) to do the effects work for the film.

Skyline is currently schedule for release December of this year.

Just as the Disney panel at this years San Diego Comic Con was ending, attendees were hit with a series of surprise appearances and announcements. Alongside Guillermo Del Toro's announcement of the newest Haunted Mansion adaptation, Johnny Depp himself made an appearance, dressed as his Jack Sparrow character from the Pirates of the Caribbean films, as an advertisement for the upcoming sequel On Stranger Tides.

Even though Disney has already released a film adaptation of its famous ride, The Haunted Mansion, but it appears that another is already on the way.

Announced as a surprise at the very end of Disney's Comic Con panel, The Haunted Mansion will be directed by critically acclaimed fantasy director Guillermo Del Toro. According to Del Toro, the theme park adaptation is reportedly a dream project of his since childhood. Del Toro also insists that this latest version will not be a comedy, unlike the critically slammed Eddie Murphy version. He insists that the film will be scary, but still fun.

The plot will revolve around a central character of the ride the Hatbox Ghost, and will introduce a new mythology for the ride.

Looks like we are getting our fair share of zombie films in coming years. With Comic Con heating up, author of such living dead hits as The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z and Max Brooks announced to MTV that famous actor Brad Pitt will play the lead role of the upcoming adaptation of his best selling novels.

Scheduled for a summer 2012 release, World War Z follows a journalist, who is tasked with gettting eye witness accounts of the war with the living dead that has ravaged the planet. The film is to be directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace) and written by Matthe Michael Carnahan.

That's right folks, now you have it. The fourth and final Spider-man universe for the upcoming game has been revealed, courtesy of IGN.com. In addition to swinging through the Amazing, Noir, and 2099 universes, players will be able to hop into the highly popular Brian Bendis written spin off series Ultimate Spider-man. Unlike 2099 and Noir, the Ultimate universe is no stranger to the video game world, having a title based off it released to numerous consoles back in 2005.

The Ultimate universe is a cell shaded slick looking world that borrows much of its style from the original game based on the series. However, what sets Ultimate apart from the other Dimensions in the game is the prescence of the malevolent symbiote suit. Why Peter Parker is once again clad in his emo outfit is unknown storywise, but it adds unparalleled power to the character in combat. The Ultimate universe has already been announced to feature Deadpool, and Carnage as villains.

Check out this cool video preview, once again courtsey of IGN.com.



The science fiction horror film that took SXSW by storm this spring has been bought and scheduled for a limited release October 29th. Digital Spy, in addition to the poster seen above, has posted a new press release regarding the independant film sleeper hit.

Six years ago previously, a NASA probe returning to earth with samples of an alien life form, crashed over Central America. Soon after, new life forms began to appear, and half of Mexico was quarantined as an INFECTED ZONE. Today, the American and Mexican military still struggle to contain "the creatures"... The story begins when a US journalist agrees to escort a shaken American tourist through the infected zone in Mexico to the safety of the US border.


Marvel is making sure to build sufficient hype for its upcoming megablockbusters based on Captain Ameirca and Thor. Both will be seen for the first time at Comic Con later this week. Not only has Marvel released some awesome poster art for both films, (Seen above and below) the official sites have launched.



Thor

Captain America

The Los Angeles time has also posted an interview with Captain America director Joe Johnston.
In it he discusses details around the character of Steve Rogers and the plot of the upcoming comic book adaptation:
"We're sort of putting a slightly different spin on Steve Rogers," said Joe Johnston, "He's a guy that wants to serve his country but he's not a flag-waver. We're reinterpretating sort of what the comic book version of Steve Rogers was."

"He wants to serve his country, but he's not this sort of jingoistic American flag-waver," Johnston added. "He's just a good person. We make a point of that in the script: Don't change who you are once you go from Steve Rogers to this super-soldier, you have to stay who you are inside, that's really what's important more than your strength and everything. It'll be interesting and fun to put a different spin on the character and one that the fans are really going to appreciate."



Look for more information regarding both films in our coverage of this year's San Diego Comic Con.

When it comes to Western animation there are few series more lauded by critics and the public alike then Nickelodeon's pseudo anime Avatar: The Last Airbender. The series has one numerous awards and recently spawned a critically slammed live action adaptation. However, just after the bad taste of the M. Night Shyamalan's film has left fan's mouths Nickelodeon has provided the perfect pallet cleanser.


Today, as a pre-Comic Con announcement series creators Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko announced that Nickelodeon has greenlit a spinoff series taking place 70 years after the original. The Legend of Kora will follow a new hot headed female Avatar named Kora. The creator's have released the following press release regarding the plot of the show (courtesy of IGN.com):
The Legend of Korra follows the adventures of a "passionate, rebellious and fearless" teenager from the Southern Water Tribe, a girl named Korra. Having already mastered three of the four elements (Earth, Water, and Fire), she seeks to master the final element of Air. Her travels eventually lead her to the metropolis of Republic City, an epicenter for the modern Avatar world. Although a thriving society of benders and non-benders alike, Republic City is also ridden with crime, including an anti-bending rebellion that is gaining momentum. Under the guidance of Aang's son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training as she confronts the dangers ahead of her.



The series will be released in 2011.

Maxis is perhaps one of the most critically acclaimed video game studios in the world. The creators behind such megahits as the Sims and Spore franchises, the company, originally spawned by gaming genius Will Wright, announced today to numerous Internet publications their newest project: Darkspore.

An action RPG in the same style as Blizzard's Diablo,Darkspore follows three alien heroes as they race to defend their planet from an evil empire. However, while its premise is derivative, what sets Darkspore apart is its fluid and creative editor system, akin to its sister series Spore. Parts for the creature editor are found instead of typical RPG loot. Your decisions in the editor will also effect gameplay, adding stat boosts to speed, defense, etc.

Details on the project are few and hard to find at the moment, but Gamespot has posted a rather indepth interview with the project leads. Seen below.


Thanks to Gamespot for the interview.
Another villain has been revealed for the upcoming Activision game Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions. Stay tuned, tomorrow IGN.com will reveal the final universe.


Conflicting reports have been released today for the shooting schedule on the upcoming sequel to JJ Abram's 2009 Star Trek reboot.

Hollywood.com announced today that they had heard from actor Bruce Greenwood, who played Captain Pike in the 2009 blockbuster, that shooting would begin in January of 2011. However, the authenticity of this announcement was questioned seeing as Greenwood did not know if he was involved with the project or not.

Later, Trekmovie.com released a conflicting report from producer Bryan Burk that shooting would in fact begin in Spring or Summer of next year.

Star Trek 2 is due for release June 29, 2012
Monday, July 19, 2010

Tom Felton may just have found his acting niche. Having played the wizard bully Draco Malfoy for the majority of the Harry Potter series, Felton appears to have set his site on a new set of fantastical victims.


Variety reports that Felton has signed on for the upcoming Planet of the Apes prequel Rise of the Apes. Felton will apparently play Brian Cox's son, who owns a facility that houses apes, in the film.

2012 is shaping up to be a huge year for giant monster fans. Not only do we have the upcoming Legendary Pictures Godzilla reboot, but it appears that we may have yet another big budget monster film due for release.


As reported back in May, Dreamworks has purchased the rights for the popular kaiju based strategy game Monsterpocalypse. Since this announcement was made several months ago, Tim Burton's name has been rumored to be attached to this project. There was even speculation that Burton's regular scribe John August would be penning the script.


Today, Slashfilm posted an interview with project producer Roy Lee (The Departed, How To Train Your Dragon). In addition to confirming that both August and Burton are indeed attached to the project, Lee announced several previously unknown details for the film.


Monsterpocalypse is being developed with 3D technology and is currently shooting for a late 2012 release. Lee also hinted at several plot aspects of the game adaptation: "The plot involves giant monsters who attack earth. After the humans fight back, the monsters retreat, but it is quickly discovered that they didn’t leave, but instead burrowed underground and are sending some sort of signal into space. The humans prepare for a possible future attach and developed giant robots that will fight the monsters if and when they return.


Most of the movie is going to be during that battle between the giant robots and the giant monsters." For those versed in the world of Monsterpocalypse, this seems to heavily hint at the G.U.A.R.D. and Planet Eater factions being the major focus of the plot, meaning that many of the other factions may not be featured in the film.


Lee also announced that award winning special effects expert Ken Ralston (Back to the Future, Forrest Gump, the original Star Wars trilogy) will work with Burton in designing the creatures for the production.

It's monday again! And this time we have a weird combination. We have breaking meme's, bad singing, and of course a little Samuel L. Jackson. Should be a fun time.

1. You dun Goofed Up (Jess Slaughter Story)


Here we go. What is quickly becoming the latest internet phenomena. While we can still enjoy Mr. Sluaghter's horrible grammar and tirades from this video alone, I know some of you may feel bad for this seemingly traumitized girl. However, there is a long and rather complex backstory behind this internet breakdown. For your convenience I have included Know Your Meme's complete research about the subject. Enjoy.

2. Classic Viral: Why Must I Cry

Rehdogg's internet classic is perhaps one of my favorite viral classics of all time. Subject of dozens of remixes, "Why Must I Cry" is a success not only for its singer's lack of talent it just is a classic example of a melodrama.

3. Snakes On a Plane Censorship

Remember that internet phenomena Snakes on A Plane? It took the world by storm in 2006 and became one of the first films to develop an internet following before its actual release. However while the initial release for the film was less then satisfactory, Snakes on a Plane has garnered a rather large Internet following its release on the FX station several years ago. This television edition was released with perhaps the most rediculous censorship job of all time, and has sense become a Youtube phenomena.

A true cult classic is about to be born...I give you..Sharktopus! SyFy Channel has once again teamed up with Roger Corman to be bring us a new overly cheesy monster film.

Plus it has a really catchy themesong.

When used to describe films, critics often use the term layered to describe the complexity of the plot and design. Never before has this description been more literal then in Christopher Nolan's intelligent, high octane, heist epic Incpetion.

To accurately describe the plot of Inception would require more space then this review allows. The plot follows Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio), who is a world renowned extractor a man who can break into peoples minds and subconcious to steal ideas. After years of studying and building within the human mind, Cobb is accused of a crime he did not commit and is left to a life on the run. However, when a Japanese business man (Ken Watanabe) offers him a chance to clear his name Cobb must assemble a team of specialists ( Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Paige, Tom Hardy, and Dileep Rao) to undertake a task that tries the depths of his abilities, and his grasp with reality.

The complexity of Inception is sure to lose some of its audience in the process of its storytelling. Writer and director Christopher Nolan strengthens his formula for intelligent and exciting plotting. However, there are moments of design and placing within the script that feel unneeded and out of place when put into context. While this adds to the virtual puzzle that is Inception, it creates an unneeded confusion at the of the film. The opposite is also true. Numerous hints and clues are dropped throughout the course of the film that hint towards the larger scale of the plot. While some characters have little depth to them, Inception does occasionally hit a deep emotional core that glues your attention to the screen. The film really shines when the mechanics of Nolan's dreamscape are explained, often through brilliant visual design. The creativity and depth to the world created within Inception is awe inspiring and intriguing.

Outside of Nolan's script, Inception has a fantastic visual design. The dreamscape crafted throughout the course of the plot is repeatedly use to full effect. The cinematography is dazzling and captures the essence of the world created in Nolan's script. There are fantastic special effects sequences scattered creatively and effectivly through the plot. Most of all, Inception's visual style is best used during the fantastic high octane action sequences.

The acting is phenomenal across the board. Leonardo DiCaprio is riveting as Cobb and plays both an effective teacher and torchered sole. Other standouts are Joseph Gordon Levitt as Arthur, Ellen Paige as Cobb's new architect Ariadne, and Cilian Murphy as the victim of the mental heist.

Another standout is Hans Zimmer bombastic and epic score. Adding to scenes of nail biting tension, Zimmer's score places his cues with skill. However, there are portions where the loud and powerful themes of Inception feel out of place and drown out essential peices of dialogue. In a film whose script is already extremly complex, any moment of lost dialogue is a handicap.

Despite its minimal flaws, Inception balances its many aspects with skill and craft. Filled with great acting performances, a layered and creative script, outstanding visual design, and Nolan's skilled direction Inception is sure to be one of the best films of the year.

Score: A+

Although apparently in development hell (haha get it?) for years, it appears that the sequel to 2007's Ghost Rider is in fact moving foward.

Star Nicolas Cage confirmed on "The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson" that he will in fact be starring in the film tentatively titled Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, the final deal having been signed yesterday.

Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor (Gamer, Crank) will be directing.

It appears that the science fiction genre is in fact making a resurgence in modern film. Today Warner Bros. studios reported to Variety that they have bought Colin Trevorrow's science fiction script World War X. The plot apparently surrounds a group of government agents who are tasked with stopping a time travelling terrorist.

Joe Silver and Andrew Rona are producing with Chris Bender, JC Spink, Alex Heineman and Jake Weiner as executive producers.
There is no franchise in history that has a more lauded score then Star Wars. With Bioware's upcoming MMO it appears as if they are planning to replicate this audio experience. With over five and half hours of original score, The Old Republic looks better with every passing week.

There is also some rather impressive gameplay footage.

When it comes to science fiction horror films, the 80’s was a virtual paradise. Filled with such cult classics as Aliens and of course, Predator, these films have spawned numerous spin offs and have become pop cultural icons. While Alien continued onwards into the 90’s, Predator would stay an 80’s creature. That is until Robert Rodriguez (Grindhouse, Spy Kids) greenlit this year’s sequel to the 80’s film. While Predators is a flawed endeavor, Rodriguez’s production is a faithful and fun edition to the franchise.

Predators follows a mostly unnamed group of individuals ranging from various nefarious global organizations (black ops, Spetsnaz, Mexican drug cartel, Yakuza, FBI’s Most Wanted) as they suddenly awake in a hazardous jungle. As it becomes dangerously clear that this is no ordinary rain forest, the unlike team must group together to defend themselves against a group of deadly calculating enemies.

In many ways Predators is faithful to the original Predator film. It manages to capture much of the spirit, tension, and character that made the original the cult classic that it is. However, despite its faithful representation of both the title character and the franchise Predators is dragged down by a mediocre and clichéd script and numerous poor directorial decisions.

The most striking and surprising aspect to Predators is how well the main cast is able to pull of their relatively meager character roles. Adrien Brody’s nose, I mean, Adrien Brody (The Pianist, King Kong), who stars as the mercenary Royce, plays his role with surprising energy and vigor, and the same can be said for the rest of the cast. While the script does not allow for well developed arcs or dialogue, each actor within the film manages to at least steer away from devolving into pure camp. Actors Laurence Fishburn (Stargate SG-1) and Alice Braga (I Am Legend) are among the stars of the film, the real standout is Topher Grace (Spider-man 3) who is a real scene stealer as the deceptive Edwin.

The action scenes in Predators are also exhilarating. Whether it’s the team trying to maneuver their way through a set of traps, fighting off alien hunting dogs, or fighting toe to toe with the Predators themselves the action is gritty, exciting, and well choreographed. However, these even feel bogged down by sometimes less than spectacular special effects and laughably clichéd directorial decisions.

In the end it is Predators poor script that holds the film down. While it’s fun and respectful to the original material, Predators is endlessly clichéd and features bland and uninteresting dialogue. While most of this saved by the outstanding cast and action sequences, there are several moments where the tired moments of the story shine through and it really puts a damper on the film as a whole.

However, despite it’s flaws Preadators really is a fun summer film. It has moments of clever humor, great acting, and plenty of thrills, even if you have to suffer through moments of pure cheese and banality.

Score: -B

The cast for the upcoming X-men prequel grows by the day. With a seemignly record breaking number of mutants cast, it appears this will be the biggest film in the franchise so far.


According to the Hollywood Reporter, 19 year old actress Jennifer Lawrence (Winter's Bone) will play the blue skinned shape shifter Mystique in next summer's Matthew Vaughn directed comic book adaptation.


The film is scheduled for a June 3 2011 release.

Want to know how the next Michael Bay Transformers begins? If so read on. If not or just do not care, avoid.

CHUD has revealed details regarding the opening scene for the third and most likely final Transformers film:"There's a disturbance on the Moon. A robot shaped disturbance. Scientists on Earth see this and the information gets passed up the chain of command. In the White House men in black suits are breathlessly running through the halls, and they burst into the Oval Office. The president is behind the desk, back turned to the door, looking out the window. One of the men tells the president, 'Sir, something's happened on the Moon!' The president turns around…and its John Kennedy."

This plot ties into a subplot connecting the Transformers races to the Cold War and Space Race during the late 1900's, an idea originally propsed by Steven Spielberg.

With Comic Con 2010 approaching news has begun to surface regarding the upcoming Superman film produced by Hollywood heavy hitter Christopher Nolan. This week information surfaced that Jonah Nolan, Christopher's younger brother, would direct, and that Chuck star Zachary Levi had auditioned for the main role.

However Moviehole insists that there is more too these rumors than initially seen. Although it is likely that Jonah will in fact get the job, it has yet to be set in stone. As for Levi's involvement with The Man of Steel? There seems to be a less definite answer regarding this. The site insists that WB is in fact searching for a television star to play the main role, but that no auditions have been held yet.

Moviehole has also recieved exclusive information regarding the nature of the film from their WB source: "This Superman is neither a reboot or a sequel. It's just a Superman film. The basic elements of the storyline are: BIG action, BIG set-pieces, witty dialogue, playful romance, a light-hearted feel good mood juxtaposed with derring-do and danger, top-notch cast, epic feel, sci-fi background (sounds a little like Donner, right?) BUT with some sort of huge twist on the legend."

Marvel has been dominating the film news airwaves these past few days. Despite the controversy surrounding Ed Norton and the recasting of the Hulk, both Avengers and the more child friendly adaptation of the award winning comic Runaways have begun production plans.

Production Weekly announced yesterday that Runaways, along with the second Clash of the Titans film and Sam Raimi's Oz The Great And Powerful, will begin filming early next summer. Coincidentally this is the same time that Joss Whedon has scheduled the Avengers to begin production.

Bleeding Cool has also announced that Whedon has begun location hunting in Manhattan, hoping to add a down to Earth feel for the film. Apaprently, work has also begun on designing the iconic S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier's that will feature prominently throughout the movie.

Following this weekends controversial and shocking announcement that Edward Norton would not be reprising his role as Bruce Banner in the upcoming Avengers adaptation, the internet has been a stir with various rumors surrounding who exactly will play the character.

Numerous names have been tossed around including Joaqine Phoenix, David Tennant, and Adrien Brody. However, the newest increasing likely name is Mark Ruffalo, most known for his roles in Zodiac and Shutter Island. According to Deadline, Ruffalo is in late discussions to play the green giant in 2012's comic book adaptation. However, Heat Vision has also insisted that the decision has yet to be made and Ruffalo has not met with the director or signed on for the project.

Perhaps the best Star Wars parodies ever released were the Star Wars Robot Chicken specials. Endlessly clever and funny, Seth Green's spastic stop animation parody has been well recieved by critics and fans alike.

According THR's The Live Feed, a new and supposedly final special is to be released later this year. The episode will also feature celebrity actors including Zac Efron and Anthony Daniels. Seth Green claims that this special will have more of a linear story, and will follow the show's numerous characters across the entire saga.

The special is scheduled for a December 12th 2012.

Well the title is misleading, but more casting for the upcoming Planet of the Apes reboot/prequel has been released.

According The Wrap, the upcoming Robert Wyatt directed film, Rise of the Apes, will star Brian Cox (Troy)as "the villainous owner of a primate sanctuary who runs the facility without compassions for the animals that live there."

Cox will join James Franco, Andy Serkis, John Lithgow, and Freido Pinto in the film, slated for release next summer.
Another featurette has been released for the upcoming film adaptation of the popular Scott Pilgrim comic series. Enjoy a simple but fun look into the world behind the film with this featurette which is laced with tons of new footage.


There must have been a reason for Nick to bring a girl onto the AC team, and now, I am serving my purpose.

That's right, ladies and gentlemen of the Internet, I saw Eclipse.

Well...it didn't kill me to see it. I didn't really enjoy it, but it didn't kill me.

Eclipse continues the saga of Bella Swan, her sparkly vampire boyfriend, Edward Cullen, her werewolf best friend, Jacob Black, and their love triangle. In the last movie, the Volturi (the Italian vampire ruling body) said that Bella had to be turned into a vampire or turned into dinner. And with the pissed-off ex-mate of James (who got killed in the first movie) on Bella's trail, it looks like dinner is a viable end. Victoria has created an army of newborn vampires to take down the Cullen clan and exact her revenge on Bella and Edward. So in order to protect the girl they both adore, Edward and Jacob strike up a temporary alliance to kick some newborn ass.

Out of all the talented actors and actresses in the acting world, they had to pick some of the most untalented and boring people on the planet to play characters who are supposed to be consumed with emotion. Jackson Rathbone, who plays Jasper Hale, has the acting skills of a toothpick, and even despite the fact that he has more lines in Eclipse than he had in the other two movies, he completely fails to elicit any emotional sympathy from anyone. Also, with the exception of Taylor Lautner, none of them are particularly good-looking, which they are supposed to be. For instance, Nikki Reed, playing the "devastatingly beautiful" Rosalie Hale, isn't even remotely pretty. And for some reason, these actors like to take long pauses in the most awkward places in a sentence. And another thing that bothers me...why are these two guys so hell-bent on getting Bella? She has no personality, she's whiny, wishy-washy, and generally irritating! Is that really what guys look for in a girl? There is no chemistry whatsoever in this movie...a romance film...there's a problem. Another thing. Why was Dakota Fanning even considered for a part? Her "badassness" is utterly comical and I don't buy it for a second. This movie had an awful lot of backstory and exposition and yet, none of the backstory sequences were particularly convincing or groundbreaking in any way.

On the upside, Taylor Lautner's near-perpetual lack of shirt was a big added plus. Also, the casting of the new Victoria was a great change from Rachelle Leferve. The choreography of the fight scene between the newborns and the monsters of Forks was pretty cool and the special effects got a bit more special. The only scene that was actually entertaining was the conversation between Edward and Jacob before the battle in which they discuss how they could have been friends...if they weren't sworn natural enemies and rivals in love.

All in all, Eclipse was very consistent. It, like its predecessors, was consistently poor. While slightly better than New Moon and leaps and bounds better than Twilight, Eclipse was essentially a fan movie and an excuse to see Taylor Lautner shirtless.

Movie grade: D

Well, that's all I really have to say on the subject.

Happy geeking!

The cast for Matthew Vaughn's (Kick Ass) X-men: First Class continues to grow by the day. On July 9th, Entertainment Weekly posted an article dictating that Lucas Till will be playing Scott Summer's, aka Cyclops, brother Alex, better known as the cult favorite mutant Havok.
Till is a relative unknown, most prominently known for his role in the Hannah Montana movie. He will also appear in next spring's science fiction blockbuster Battlefield: Los Angeles.

With shooting of the third Transformers film well underway in Chicago a wealth of information has come up about the upcoming Michael Bay blockbuster and his future projects.

First off, picture above is one of many set photos from the film, this depicting the aftermath of a major battle between the warring factions of the Transformers universe.

Later in an interview with Comingsoon.net, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura confirmed that this will indeed be the last Transformers film that he and Michael bay will be working on. However, he did mention that there are certainly numerous possibilities for Hasbro and Dreamworks to continue the series. di Bonaventura mentioned that the film will touch upon the absence of Megan Fox's character confirming that Rosie Huntington Whiteley will be playing a separate character.

Finally, di Bonaventura mentioned that Bay and he have already begun planning stages on their next project, an adaptation of the classic video game Asteroids: "When I was called about the property—I was called because of what I'd done with 'Transformers' and 'G.I. Joe,' Atari reached out to me and said, 'We have Asteroids,' and I had an immediate reaction 'Yes.' The reason was not because playing the game, we thought somehow that game could be translated into a movie, it can't. The word 'Asteroids' connotates a large-scale experience, so the challenge, which was great, was 'Okay, so how do you get a mythology that will support that?" We really went after a mythology on the level of 'Star Wars' and we'll see if we succeeded or not but it's not a simple thing of the asteroids are going to hit the earth. We never come to earth. The entire movie takes place in the asteroid field. We do some homages to the game for sure, but I like the sense of scale."

After the rather disastrous Hulk film original released in 2003, Marvel released a tentative reboot in 2008. Titled the Incredible Hulk afte the classic comic series, the film placed Edward Norton (Fight Club) as the title character an was critically acclaimed but only enjoyed modest financial success. Due to plans announced prior to the film's release, it was assumed that Norton would continue his role into future films, including 2012's Joss Whedon directed Avengers adaptation. However, this no longer appears to be the case.

Originally announced by HitFix and later Marvel studios, Edward Norton will not be reprising his role as Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Marvel executive Kevin Feige issued the following statement about the announcement: "Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert [Downey], Chris [Hemsworth], Chris (Evans), Sam [Jackson], Scarlett [Johansson], and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks." It is also reported that a replacement is to be announced at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

However, this statement was not well received by Norton and his agent, Brian Swardstrom. Swardstrom offered this rebuttal: "We know a lot of fans have voiced their public disappointment with this result, but this is no excuse for Feige's mean spirited, accusatory comments. Counter to what Kevin implies here, Edward was looking forward to the opportunity to work with Joss and the other actors in the Avengers cast, many of whom are personal friends of his. Feige's statement is unprofessional, disingenuous and clearly defamatory. Mr. Norton talent, tireless work ethic and professional integrity deserve more respect, and so do Marvel's fans."

While it is uncertain where exactly the debate will go next, Marvel is beginning its search for a replacement actor. CHUD claims that Marvel has approached Gladiator and Walk the Line acotr Joaquin Phoenix to play the tormented scientist in the upcoming Avengers film.
First off, I would like to apologize for the unintentional one week hiatus. I was out of town, and unable to edit the site. This is also why the site has been fairly inactive recently. This week I plan to make this up to you guys with some great videos.

1. Double Rainbow
----------------------------------------------------------------------


Honestly, this is one of my favorite videos of all time. The man's reaction to a simple natural phenomena has become an internet classic. I think this guy should write poetry its so great.

2. Oh God, Oh Man
-----------------------------------------------------------------

I don't know what part of this video I like more. The cheesy music. The fact that the guy has a pet that kills people. The cheesy acting. Or the unnecessary camera work.

3. Barack Obama Sings Kick Ass Song

Auto tune sucks. It saps the life out of the music industry, but occasionally geniuses come along who can create internet phenomena. The Auto Tune the News crew has created dozens of annoyingly catchy songs on the internet. This being one of their most popular.
