Heroes Reborn Header

I loved Heroes. In 2006, it was a unique concept for television – people who developed extraordinary abilities, and the people who attacked, feared, and loved them. I loved Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia), whose ability to take on other people’s powers made his every move an interesting one. I loved Dr. Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy), the earnest, genius, easy-on-the-eyes researcher. I even loved Sylar (Zachary Quinto), the first really terrifying villain I had seen in a long time.

So I will be tuning in for Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode series set to air September 24th on NBC.

Read the official synopsis, watch the trailer for Heroes Reborn – The Extraordinary Among Us, and the other promo video below.

Heroes Reborn Super Bowl Spot The Aurora

During tonight’s broadcast of the Super Bowl on NBC, the network aired a TV spot tease for Heroes Reborn, the revival of their series Heroes.

Watch the 15-second Heroes Reborn TV spot, titled “The Aurora,” here below.

While Heroes star Zachary Quinto won’t be reprising his role as Sylar, Jack Coleman, who played Noah Bennett aka HRG, has been confirmed to return for Heroes Reborn. Chuck star Zachary Levi has signed on for the new miniseries, which will have a 13-episode run later this year. As with the original series, there will be an ongoing comic book ancillary. Titled Heroes: Season Five, the comic book series will be written by Cullen Bunn with details on the artist and release date still to come.

Heroes Reborn

Recently, it was announced that Chuck star Zachary Levi would be one of the newcomers to Heroes Reborn, a 13-episode miniseries continuation of the NBC series Heroes. It was also made clear that some of the familiar faces from the show’s original 2006 to 2010 run would be popping up from time to time in the miniseries, including the only confirmed returning star so far, Jack Coleman, who plays Noah Bennett.

Now comes word of one star who will not be returning for the event. Star Trek star Zachary Quinto has revealed that he will not be reprising his role as Sylar, one of the primary antagonists (sometimes) from the original series. Continue reading to see why Quinto chose not to return.

Heroes Reborn

Got your fill of TV revivals yet? Save some room, there’s still plenty on the way. Fox is talking about potentially reviving multiple titles of theirs, and now another high-profile revival has found one of its stars.

Back in 2006 when it first premiered, NBC’s Heroes was one of the hottest shows on television. After its stellar first season, however, the show had no idea where to go, which resulted in a nasty tailspin, and ultimately a crash cancellation in 2010 after season four.

In 2015, NBC will air a 13-episode miniseries continuation of Heroes titled Heroes Reborn, and one of the revival’s stars will be Zachary Levi.

Heroes Reborn NBC

You read that correctly, Heroes is coming back!

NBC has ordered 13 episodes in what they are calling an event miniseries to air in 2015. With its new moniker, Heroes Reborn, there’s no guarantee that we’ll see our favorites from the original series, but right now all we know is that it’s a standalone story arc and creator Tim Kring is on board as executive producer. The revived television series will be preceded by a digital series that’s going to introduce the characters and the storyline.

Top 5 Telekinetics Stronger Than Carrie

Top 5 Telekenetics

The newest adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie, a film about a girl with telekinetic powers who gets bullied and begins to use her powers against a lot of people, just hit theaters last week. The movie had some really great marketing schemes including the viral coffee shop prank that was covered on the site a few weeks ago.

With Carrie‘s recent release, I thought it would be appropriate to compile a list of five telekinetic fictional characters that Carrie would not want to mess with and who make the power Carrie wields seem like child’s pay.

Check out the list below of the Top 5 Telekinetics Stronger Than Carrie.

Comic Review: Killogy

KillogyKillogy
Trade Paperback
Written by Alan Robert
Illustrated by Alan Robert
Lettered by Alan Robert
IDW Publishing
Release Date: June 19, 2013
Cover Price: $17.99

So, Frank Vincent, Marky Ramone, and Brea Grant are locked in a Brooklyn jail cell together… No, it’s not the start of some bizarre joke—it’s the start of one powerful gorefest by Alan Robert entitled Killogy. IDW has bundled the miniseries into one volume that every horror comic devotee should plan to have in their collection.

Alan Robert’s tight script drops the reader right in the middle of a high-tension scene thanks to his Tarantino-esque manipulation of the story’s timeline. This is a tricky thing to pull off properly, but Robert (best know for Wire Hangers) makes it seem effortless as he fills in the plot with pieces of the past to reveal the strange and possibly supernaturally-influenced connections between the characters.

The Heroes Doc Banner

Guys, there’s a geek-tastic documentary in the works that could really use your support on Kickstarter! The Heroes Doc by Jere Thomas and Matthew Tyndall is the story of the 30th anniversary of the Heroes Convention, hosted by Shelton Drum, owner of the legendary comic book shop Heroes Aren’t Hard to Find.

The Heroes Doc tells the story of how the “Emerald City of the East” convention started in a hotel conference room and has grown to be one of the largest independent comic book conventions in the nation. The documentary tells the complete story of the man, the store, the convention, and all the people that make it possible.

Jere and Matt have been following the Heroes team since last August; learning the day-to-day operations, watching as they prepare for special events like Free Comic Book Day, and looking at all of the behind-the scenes-action as they get ready for this year’s convention.

The Empire Strikes Back: A Track-by-Track Commentary of the Original Score

Week of Geek: The Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary

Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back soundtrackThe Empire Strikes Back: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Special Edition)
Composer: John Williams
London Symphony Orchestra
1997 Release

WARNING! THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS MASSIVE SPOILERS!

It’s been thirty years since The Empire Strikes Back, the much-anticipated sequel to George Lucas’ 1977 mega-hit cultural touchstone Star Wars, opened in theaters around the world and the impact it made upon audiences and critics has not dulled a bit, and for good reason. The movie proved that the success of the first Star Wars film was no well-timed fluke and even a movie that essentially paid homage to space operas, samurai films, and westerns could evolve beyond its influences and become its own beast. Best of all it was better than Star Wars in every possible way: the script by Leigh Brackett (screenwriter of such classic films as The Big Sleep, Rio Bravo, and The Long Goodbye) and Lawrence Kasdan (who later went on to co-write Raiders of Lost Ark and enter his own directing career) opened up the universe Lucas had created and expanded the scope with an epic, serpentine tale that was more darker, richer, and emotional than the original and overflowing with memorable characters, and quotable dialogue; the direction by Irvin Kershner was professional and assured; and the cast, free of George Lucas’ stilted writing and relative inexperience with actors (despite the fact that he had directed the actor-heavy American Graffiti to great success), were able to give deeper and more nuanced performances under the direction of the deferential Kershner.
