Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 (of 6)
Written by Victor LaValle
Art by Dietrich Smith
Colors by Joana Lafuente
Letters by Jim Campbell
Cover by Micaela Dawn
BOOM! Studios
Release Date: June 21, 2017
Cover Price: $3.99

I seldom like modern twists on what I would consider a classical piece of literature, even when I’m not a huge fan of the original work. There is something almost perverse about modifying something that old. However, I will be the first to admit that sometimes what I think is going to be a modification or a reboot is instead an invigorating chapter or work unto itself. Case in point, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer #2 is a spectacular sequence of events that do not in any way tarnish Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Never would I have thought this would entrance me so.

Jurassic World title card

The Jurassic World sequel will no longer go by a generic numerical title. Instead, the J.A. Bayona-directed film will be called Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

We’ve heard that the film will be more terrifying than any of the previous Jurassic installments. But as the poster indicates, it seems Jurassic World is going to be doing more burning than scaring. But let’s not draw early conclusions from a mere teaser poster. More on the story below.

Leaving Netflix Streaming: July 2017 — Another Painful Blow
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Netflix Logo

While finding out what’s new to Netflix streaming each month is always exciting, those titles will be available for a while. There’s no rush to watch them immediately. You can chill whenever you choose.

On the other end is the far less exciting list of what’s leaving Netflix soon. A list that adds a ticking clock to a bunch of titles you may have been planning on watching. The month as a whole might not be too bad for most. But if you’re a fan of animated comedies still recovering from the removal of shows like Family Guy, American Dad!, and Bob’s Burgers, prepare for yet another painful blow. Below you’ll find the Leaving Netflix list for July 2017, so you can binge anything you’ve been meaning to watch before it disappears.

The Movie God   |  @   |  

Saw Movie

Did you think the Saw franchise was going to die with the seventh movie, as it once seemed like it might? No, of course you didn’t. No one did. Plus, its return has been whispered about for some time now. The franchise did remain sleeping, to its credit, for longer than expected. But now it is ready to rise from its seven-year slumber.

Lionsgate has confirmed an official title for the next movie in the series, as well as a release date. You can find both below.

Carnage To Be Villain To Tom Hardy’s ‘Venom’
The Movie God   |  @   |  

Venom and Carnage

We found out just last month that Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Knight Rises, and Inception star Tom Hardy was set to star in the R-rated Spider-Man spinoff Venom with Zombieland and Gangster Squad director Ruben Fleischer behind the camera.

Going with the R-rating—with confidence gained from the successful releases of Deadpool and Logan—is a great start. Now it looks like another step in the right direction has been taken. There was a rumor a few years back (when the movie was going to be co-written and directed by The Mummy director Alex Kurtzman) that the movie could feature none other than Carnage, and it appears that will be the case.

Plague #2
Written by Dennis MaGee Fallon and Jason Palmatier

Letters by Dave Sharpe
Markosia Comics
Release Date: June 7, 2017
Cover Price: $1.99

A few months back I had the distinct pleasure of reviewing a new comic that truly appealed to me in several ways. First in a series, Plague #1 was a remarkable change from the ho-hum average comic, for it gracefully blended true history with high fantasy. This newest installment, Plague #2, picks up right where the last issue left off and manages to cover a lot of proverbial ground. Keep reading to find out more!
