‘Coco’ Trailer: Pixar’s Latest Is A Beautiful Bittersweet Symphony
eelyajekiM   |  

COCO Pixar

It’s almost hard to find a “bad” Pixar film. Even their weakest efforts have some very likable qualities, and almost every film is just gorgeous to look at. But when it comes to Coco, the animation studio has really outdone themselves. The latest trailer is full of vibrant colors and emotional musical pieces that really get at the heart of the film’s plot, which follows a young boy named Miguel who, desperate to become an accomplished musician like his idol, finds himself in the land of the dead during Mexico’s celebrated Dia De Los Muertos or Day of the Dead. A love for family and music sing true in what is obviously a love letter to Mexico.

Check out the full Coco trailer here below.

Wait, What? Robert Rodriguez Casts Lady Gaga In ‘Machete Kills’
The Movie God   |  

Lady Gaga Machete Kills Banner

OK, so it should come as no surprise that unexpected actors are being announced for the cast of the upcoming sequel, Machete Kills. Director Robert Rodriguez is known for putting together sometimes strange and always intriguing casts, and it always seems to work out quite well. The very same is expected here.

In the same way that he’s announced other casting news, such as Charlie Sheen playing the President of the United States, Rodriguez took to the Twitter to announce that pop music star Lady Gaga will also have a part in the sequel.

Gaga will play someone named La Chameleon, which is assumed to be a small role as the performer has apparently already filmed her scenes. Along with the announcement, Rodriguez also released a poster of Gaga in character. You can check that out below.

Charlie Sheen & Robert Rodriguez

If the addition of a one Mel Gibson wasn’t intriguing enough for you, director Robert Rodriguez has announced that he has also cast tabloid magnet Charlie Sheen in his upcoming sequel, Machete Kills.

Rodriguez made the announcement via the Twitter, where he also revealed that Sheen would actually be playing the President of the United States of America (which feels strangely fitting, no?).

Wait, What?! Syfy NOT Moving Forward With ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome’
The Movie God   |  

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome

This is one of those surreal moments in life, the likes of which no geek wants to experience.

While writing up a short piece for the the awesome first trailer for Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica prequel, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, I went to find out when this exciting new series was going to finally premiere. The answer I found was: never. It’s being reported that Syfy has decided NOT to move forward with the show after years of development.

As it turns out, the “trailer” was just a demo reel set to Trent Reznor and Karen O’s “Immigrant Song” cover from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo that was shown at WonderCon. Syfy apparently thought it over for a long time, but ultimately decided it was not in their best interest (who cares what the fans want, right?) to continue forward with the property as a series. This might not, however, mean that we’ll never see Blood & Chrome.

You can read why there’s still some hope to see this and check out the fast-paced first “trailer” by clicking on over to the other side now.

Convention Report: Comicpalooza 2011

Comicpalooza 2011

During Memorial Day weekend (May 27-29, 2011), Comicpalooza held its 4th annual multi-genre convention at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX. I attended the first two days of this three-day convention. First of all, this was my first big convention in Texas and the layout of the convention center was massive. The whole convention took place on the 3rd level of this massive convention center.

The highlights of the convention for me were the opportunities to interact with comic creators, comic fans, and celebrities. I spent a short amount of time on Friday observing the entire Con floor and chatting with various artists and writers in Artist Alley. I also checked out a few things in the Dealers Room. Before leaving for the day, I sat in on panel with comic writer Chris Roberson (I-Zombie), Fred Van Lente (Marvel Zombies), and Brian Denham (Zombie Fairy Tales) on a panel titled Comics & Zombies. By the name of the panel, you can guess what was discussed.
