Upon the granting of the third, the unholy legions of the Djinn will be freed to rule the earth. Fear one thing in all there is… fear the Djinn.”

eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Venom

Spider-Man continues to be Sony’s flagship superhero. But now that studios are in the business of shared universes, Sony wants to cash in on the same success they are having. However, their first attempt was less than successful thanks in no small part to The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s underperforming box office numbers. But now that they are sharing the Webslinger with Marvel Studios, they are going to take another stab at it starting with Venom.

More on the story below.

By Jay Allan
Publisher: Harper Voyager

In Flames Of Rebellion, author Jay Allan creates a futuristic galactic tale where Earth’s Federal America has become an authoritarian society that rules over several extraterrestrial colony worlds, including Alpha 2, commonly referred to as “Haven” by its inhabitants.

‘Ash vs. The Army of Darkness’ Comic Celebrates Film’s 25th Anniversary

Ash vs The Army of Darkness 00 Cover A Bradshaw banner

I think if you told Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell back in the late 70s that the uber low-budget horror film they were working on would still be relevant to pop culture four decades later, they would’ve probably turned the blood hose on you. But alas, the allure of Ashley J. Williams and is just too strong. Thirty-six years after the original Evil Dead film and 30 years after its classic sequel Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn, and 25 years after its ridiculous horror-comedy third installment Army of Darkness, Ash is still trucking along killing deadites and fighting the Necronomicon on Starz network’s Ash vs Evil Dead, which was renewed for a third season. Since 2004, Dynamite Entertainment has been the home of the Ash vs. The Army of Darkness comic book series, so in honor of Army Of Darkness‘s silver anniversary, Dynamite is releasing a special all-new series starting with a #0 issue at the “S–Mart Special” price of only $0.99.

Movie Review: Goblin Queen
Dr. Zaius   |  @   |  

Goblin Queen-07

Goblin Queen
Written & Directed by Reed Shusterman
Cast: Amy Letcher, Stacey Moseley, Ty Puttenvink, J. Ellsworth Phillips, Jamie Cline
Runtime: 11 minutes
Release date: March 27, 2017

If The Chronicles of Narnia had a baby with the final LARP-ing scene from Role Models, the child would look similar to Goblin Queen, a new 11-minute short from writer/director Reed Shusterman. Described by Shusterman as “Narnia from the Mom’s point of view,” Goblin Queen is both heartwarming and action packed, on the level of films ten times its run time.
