Avengers: Endgame Official Movie Special book review

Marvel Studios: Avengers: Endgame – The Official Movie Special
Hardcover
Edited by Jonathan Wilkins
Publisher: Titan Comics
Release date: April 30, 2019

What else can be said about the Marvel Cinematic Universe that hasn’t already? 11 years, 22 films, one universe. The most comprehensive and sprawling movie saga ever attempted has proved a critical and financial success and changed the film industry forever. At the very least it’s made us all sick of the word “universe” when discussing movies. Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame is mowing does box office records quicker than its heroes dispose of supervillains and it may soon become the most lucrative film of all time. If you’ve been in a hole and haven’t seen it, or like me you’ve seen it multiple times, a perfect companion piece just came your way in Titan Publishing’s Avengers: Endgame: The Official Movie Special available now in hardback. This behind the scenes look is perfect for MCU fans in your life.

War for the Planet of the Apes: Revelations

War for the Planet of the Apes: Revelations
The Official Movie Prequel
By Greg Keyes
Paperback | Kindle | Audio CD
Publisher: Titan Books
Release date: June 6, 2017

In 2011, FOX’s successfully rebooted the Planet of the Apes film franchise with Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which centered on Caesar, a genetically enhanced chimpanzee born in an animal-testing lab whose early life is spent with a human family. Excellently mo-cap performed by Lord Of The Rings star Andy Serkis, Caesar struggled to find his place amongst humans, and then eventually landed in an abusive animal shelter before leading a revolt of his fellow apes against their human handlers. In 2014’s Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel set ten years after the events of Rise, the human race had been nearly wiped out by a virus that in turn made the apes more intelligent. Here, Caesar tried to keep the peace between his ape tribe and the human survivors, but it became clear that war was coming. Which brings us to the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes.

Aliens: The Set Photography
Hardcover
Written by Simon Ward
Titan Books
Release Date: August 9th, 2016

Most fans today know James Cameron as the director of the two biggest money makers of all time: Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009). But thirty years ago, he was a man with one major hit to his name, the 1984 classic The Terminator starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. Cameron proved he could blend science fiction and action together in a way never quite seen before in movie history. So when he worked to bring a sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1979 masterwork Alien, everyone was paying attention. Scott’s film was a gothic horror film in outer space featuring an unforgettable monster from the mind of H.R. Giger. Cameron’s film was vastly different, and thanks to the hard work of Simon Ward and the people at Titan Books, we can now step behind the scenes into the world of Aliens and celebrate he sequel’s 30 year birthday with Aliens: The Set Photography. The book features stunning photos, fun stories, and an introduction by Carrie Henn.

Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years hardcover from Titan Books banner

Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years
Hardcover
Foreword by Nicholas Meyer
Publisher: Titan Books
Release Date: September 6, 2016

September 8 will mark the 50th anniversary of the original Star Trek television series, the creation of visionary Gene Roddenberry, that saw the crew of the starship Enterprise embark on their 5-year mission to explore strange new worlds, bolding going where no man had gone before. While we technically never saw them complete their mission — the TV series was canceled after three seasons because of low ratings — “Captain Kirk” and “Mr. Spock” have since become household names and the Star Trek franchise has grown massive beyond everyone’s wildest dreams.

In honor of this milestone anniversary, CBS — which currently holds the rights to the franchise — commissioned a series of art in various mediums, the images of which have been collected into a new 112-page full-color oversized hardcover, Star Trek: 50 Artists 50 Years, from Titan Books.

Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization
Paperback | Kindle
Based on the Warner Bros. Pictures film written by David Ayer
Based on the characters from DC Comics
Written by Marv Wolfman
Publisher: Titan Books
Release Date: August 9, 2016

Suicide Squad, a Warner Bros.’ summer 2016 tentpole, was one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, with standout stars like Will Smith and Jared Leto, fan-favorite DC Comics characters like Harley Quinn and the Joker, and the promise of a cameo from Ben Affleck’s Batman. But once Suicide Squad hit theaters in early August, it was critically panned and many fans voiced their disappointment with the new DCEU offering’s out-of-sequence storytelling, non-compelling villain, and the lack of Leto’s Joker, the latter of whom was used heavily in the marketing of the film.

Not enough Joker in the film? Yes, that’s definitely true. Joker’s presence in general as well as his twisted romantic relationship with Harley Quinn are what fans were clamoring for the most. Leto recently spoke up to say that he didn’t know his role was going to be reduced to a glorified cameo and that enough footage was captured of his character to make a full Joker movie. Having read Suicide Squad: The Official Movie Novelization, it does appear that there was much more Joker-Harley story to tell, as well as plenty other aspects left out of the final film.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm banner

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm
Paperback | Kindle
By Greg Keyes
Titan Books
Release date: May 27, 2014

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes: Firestorm is a novel that’s the official movie prequel to the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is the sequel to 2011’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes — the reboot of the franchise that began with 1968’s Planet of the Apes — and is very similar in premise to the fourth installment of the series, 1972’s Conquest of the Planet of the Apes.

Since Dawn picks up about 10 years after the events of Rise, which saw a group of genetically enhanced apes break out of captivity, Firestorm bridges the gap between the two stories, although it concentrates on the time right after Rise. Dawn, which arrives in theaters on July 11, 2014, finds humanity on the brink of extinction, as a pandemic believed to be caused by the apes wipes out most of the humans. The prequel novel is an original story about how the virus was first detected and what happened in the early days of contagion.
