Check-out this awesome retro Captain America poster

Check-out this awesome retro Captain America poster

Marvel sure know how to celebrate their releases. Sadly, this blast from the past of a poster isn’t intended for mass production, but was given to the cast and crew after the wrap. JoBlo bagged the first look. Paolo Rivera is the artist, who used good old-fashioned pencil, ink and paint to give this iconic hero a quintessential 1940’s one-sheet. […]

District 9’s Neill Blomkamp is still thinking about aliens

District 9’s Neill Blomkamp is still thinking about aliens

We have a lot of love for District 9. It is one of the most impressive directorial debuts in recent memory, and the level of interest surrounding Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up,¬†Elysium, is about to explode. Empire revealed that Diego Luna (Yu Tu Mama Tambien) has been added to the cast, which currently features Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley and William […]

The Inbetweeners get a teaser trailer

The Inbetweeners get a teaser trailer

I’d totally forgotten about The Inbetweeners Movie. The Channel Four series was a winner, giving Peep Show a run for its money as the most pathos-ridden sitcom on television. Fans will be pleased to know that the film is indeed a reality, and the continuing misadventures of Will, Jay, Simon and Neil will hit the big screen August 19th.

Trailer Trash #4: Dollman (1991)

Trailer Trash #4: Dollman (1991)

Ah, Dollman. What can we say about this particular bit of hackery? Well, for starters, it was directed by trash icon Albert Pyun, who made the 90’s, straight-to-video version of Captain America. It also “boasts” a story by schlock merchant (and Empire Pictures head) Charles Band. If that wasn’t enough, the supporting cast includes Jackie Earle Haley, who would eventually […]

Metallica get monopolised

Metallica get monopolised

Sometimes, a bit of merchandise just rubs me the wrong way. The world doesn’t need a Metallica version of Monopoly. The very thought of it is ridiculous, especially when the band in question has enough money to fund small countries. I guess their platinum-selling albums and Guitar Hero: Metallica just wasn’t enough. Lest we forget their line of Christmas baubles. […]

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright prepare for The World’s End

Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright prepare for The World’s End

It’s been four years since Hot Fuzz, the last collaboration between Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright. Very little is known about the conclusion to their “Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy”, The World’s End. Is it a disaster movie? Alien invasion flick? Or is it set in a certain pub in Camden Town? Pegg isn’t giving up the goods, but he did […]

THE HERALD OF GALACTUS #3: DC Comics Reboot

THE HERALD OF GALACTUS #3: DC Comics Reboot

After touching on it my last issue, I thought I would talk more about DC’s universe-wide reboot that is set to take place after Flashpoint ends in September. A rumour surfaced via Bleeding Cool that the company will be taking all of their books back to issue #1. Some people in the comic industry assumed this was just a rumour […]

Frank Darabont gives an update on Walking Dead season 2

Frank Darabont gives an update on Walking Dead season 2

The first season of The Walking Dead was brilliant, a few missteps aside. It was refreshing to see a gore-drenched Romero homage on television, even though the series struggled to top Frank Darabont’s near-perfect pilot. However, the finale left dead-heads everywhere craving more, so it’s good to know that AMC are expanding the second season from six to twelve episodes. […]

MOVIE/TV ROUND-UP: Super 8, The Hangover 3, Daredevil, Ninja Turtles, Django, This is Forty, CSI, Breaking Bad

MOVIE/TV ROUND-UP: Super 8, The Hangover 3, Daredevil, Ninja Turtles, Django, This is Forty, CSI, Breaking Bad

It hasn’t been a bad summer season at the movies. Thor and X-Men: First Class defied expectations and even the fourth Pirates flick did well critically. Super 8 looks set to maintain the quality and reviews have been extremely positive. J.J. Abram’s homage to the Spielberg films of yesteryear is primed to open big. A release of a poster isn’t […]
