IMAX To Feel The Full Power ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Millennium Falcon

There is no doubt that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is going to be one of the biggest films of 2015. Seeing the excitement throughout the fan conventions and reaction to the trailers prove that this is just one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. And now it is about to get even bigger.

We’ve already known that director J.J. Abrams shot a desert scene using IMAX cameras, so it is going to be something worth the extra amount of money. But just in case you are worried about missing it because of a limited run on IMAX, you don’t need to worry, because a new report says that Star Wars: The Force Awakens has booked every IMAX screen in North America for a full month. More on the story below.

‘Kong: Skull Island’ Adds Another ‘Straight Outta Compton’ Star
eelyajekiM   |  

Jason Mitchell

Last weekend, Straight Outta Compton took the number one spot at the box office for the second week running, and looking at the schedule of films, it might take it again for a third. The success of that film will definitely help increase the actors’ stock with the film’s stars like Corey Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson Jr., and Jason Mitchell likely to get more high profiled roles.

In fact, Hawkins has already been building himself to be a major star even before he landed the role of Dr. Dre by signing on for Universal and Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island. As the film prepares to shoot for a fall start date, there are new reports confirming that he will be joined by his fellow Straight Outta Compton co-star Mitchell. More on the story below.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Kylo Ren

Toy conventions and Comic-Cons are the places to be at for the exclusive limited-edition high-end toys that every collector wants to have. Some people even camp out to see a live unboxing of these highly-detailed toys. Some don’t get the chance to see the event for themselves, and instead rely on videos posting of these unveilings hours after they occur. But in the age of Periscope, and more live-streaming content, fans around the world are given the opportunity to be right there to see it for themselves.

And now Disney Consumer Products has announced that ahead of Force Friday, they will be holding a Star Wars: The Force Awakens toy unboxing phenomenon event this September that will go live globally. More on this here below.

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘Our Friend Satan’ Graphic Novel By Dominik Marzec
Waerloga69   |  

Our Friend Satan

Our Friend Satan. I’m not going to lie to you, I was full of preconceived notions based solely on the title alone. As it turns out, I was pretty close on the expectation of it being a parody of everything we are taught/told/whatever in our formative years. In this story, Satan is effectively just the CEO of Hell, and he’s pretty damned tired of it. Constantly getting a bad rap, he’s scapegoated at every turn by the Catholic Church (not necessarily the good guys in this tale). And while the world at large has seen him portrayed as a monster with huge horns and a pitchfork, he’s actually a balding older gentleman who spends his days in a bathrobe and slippers, drinking copious amounts of Cthulhu Vodka with his buddy, and chess partner, Beelzebub. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg with this comic! Hilarity abounds in the most infernal of ways, you’ll never know what’s coming until it’s too late. That’ll teach those silly kids to summon up the Prince of Darkness!

Hannibal 308 Header

Hannibal
Season 3 Episode 12 “The Number of the Beast Is 666”
Directed by Guillermo Navarro
Written by Jeff Vlaming & Angela LaManna and Bryan Fuller & Steve Lightfoot
Created by Bryan Fuller
Starring Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Gillian Anderson, Laurence Fishburne, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, Nina Arianda, Rutina Wesley, Richard Armitage
NBC
Air date: Saturday, August 22nd, 2015, 10pm

We spend a lot of time in “The Number of the Beast is 666,” thinking about or around the idea of religion; specifically around the concept of who is and isn’t the devil. Jack (Laurence Fishburne), and Will (Hugh Dancy) want to believe that they aren’t the executors of damnation, but Hannibal (Mads Mikkelson) knows his place. Hannibal is the Devil this show deserves, but not the one it needs right now.

That honor falls to Will Graham.

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Remembers Leonard Nimoy (Video)
The Movie God   |  

Leonard Nimoy - Mr. Spock

Back in July we found out that Star Trek Beyond, the third entry in the rebooted Star Trek movie franchise, was doing a contest for a chance to win a role in the movie (similar to what former Trek director J.J. Abrams and company did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens) all in the name of charity.

That contest is in its last week, and to make the final stretch special it was decided to dedicate the week to the great Leonard Nimoy, the Star Trek legend who sadly passed away back in February. The contest benefits many charities but in order to honor Nimoy, a charity that he cared deeply for, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, is being spotlighted.

A short video was released to announce the news and remember Nimoy, with current Spock actor Zachary Quinto fittingly front and center. You can watch the video below.

‘Man Of Steel 2′ May Be Put On Permanent Hold
eelyajekiM   |  

Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice Henry Cavill Wayne Manor

Last week brought news that Mad Max: Fury Road‘s George Miller was rumored to be in talks to direct Man of Steel 2. Of course given how close the filmmaker was to directing a Justice League film back in the in the late 2000s, it was long overdue. And perhaps Fury Road‘s success convinced WB that the director deserved such an honor. However, there was no mention of a sequel during SDCC, and the film isn’t officially scheduled for a release, tentative or otherwise. Still Warner Bros. may be waiting to see how successful Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad are before they confirm anything, which makes sense.

However, there is a new report saying that WB may actually be putting Man of Steel 2 on a permanent hold. More on the story below.

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘The Threat,’ Issue 1 Reboot

Kickstarter Spotlight: The Threat reboot

A long time ago in an article far, far away I presented you with a Kickstarter Spotlight of The Threat from Stratum Comics. And thanks to 63 of you, the campaign was a success! Looking back, I reviewed the first issue three years ago and another contributor here assessed the second one a few months later.

I love independent comics like this one because they really bring our passions back to basics. But sometimes, creators realize that their vision wasn’t quite fully attained, hence the need for The Threat Issue 1 Reboot!
