    FANTASTIC FOUR, a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel’s original and longest-running superhero team, centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy.



    Resident Evil: The Final Chapter Begins Production 


    It's been almost 3 long years since the latest Resident Evil entry, Resident Evil: Retribution hit theaters in September of 2012 and after a slight hiccup (pregnancy) it seems that franchise star, Milla Jovovich, and franchise helmer (and husband of Jovovich) Paul W.S. Anderson are heading to South Africa to bring the final installment of the long-running sci-fi/horror series. 

    Jovovich posted the following photo on her Instagram:

    Well, the moment so many of you have been waiting for is finally here where I can tell you that it's zombie killing season for the Jovovich-Anderson clan! Here I am getting my face cast made for "resident evil: the final chapter"!! I leave to South Africa tomorrow to start prepping for the movie! #residentevilmovie #ladiary

    The franchise, based on the wildly popular Capcom series, first began in 2002, and has since became the most (and only) succesful video-game adaptation in box-office history.
    Director Anderson has stated in the past that he aims to bring the series full circle with this dramatic entry.  


    First Trailer for 'Joy' Starring Jennifer Lawrence

    What if I told you an Oscar nominated filmmaker and an Oscar winning actress were making a movie about the woman who invented the miracle mop?

    You probably wouldn't believe me but indeed it's actually true.

    The first trailer has been released for writer/director David O. Russell's (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter) drama/comedy (dramedy), Joy, starring Jennifer Lawrence as the title character who - through perseverance over life's obstacles - becomes the founder of a business dynasty.

    The trailer definitely seems to sell the 'emotional core' behind the film as we see Lawrence's character, Joy, going through life's struggles and disappointments before she decides to take action and change her life for the better. It also throws the comedy bits in as well as we see while the film will have its dramatic beats, it's not going serious to the point where it's a full-on drama.

    Lawrence obviously looks fantastic in the lead role and will probably be a heavy favorite once again for an Oscar nomination and win. Robert De Niro and Bradley Cooper also have supporting roles as well.

    View the trailer below and judge for yourself.

    Sound off with your comments.

    JOY is the wild story of a family across four generations centered on the girl who becomes the woman who founds a business dynasty and becomes a matriarch in her own right. Betrayal, treachery, the loss of innocence and the scars of love, pave the road in this intense emotional and human comedy about becoming a true boss of family and enterprise facing a world of unforgiving commerce. Allies become adversaries and adversaries become allies, both inside and outside the family, as Joy’s inner life and fierce imagination carry her through the storm she faces. Jennifer Lawrence stars, with Robert De Niro, Bradley Cooper, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Ladd, and Virginia Madsen. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, Joy defies genre to tell a story of family, loyalty, and love.

    New Dark Knight Image From "Batman V Superman"

    If you've watched the Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer at least eleventeen times like I have, you noticed a steam punk version of the Dark Knight going toe to toe with Superman Soldiers. Why there are Superman Soldiers remains to be seen but Clay Enos posted a photo of Batman's Gotham By Gaslight look via TWITTER.


    "X-Men: Apocalypse" Comic-Con Poster & Interview With Bryan Singer


    I don't remember if I am in the minority or majority anymore, nor do I even care, but I enjoyed Superman Returns. Sure there were some major flaws, but there was also a large number of flaws in Man Of Steel and I enjoyed that quite a lot as well. I think Bryan Singer put his heart and soul into Superman and it showed. Now back in the X-Men universe, Singer is doing the same for Fox and is looking to up the ante with X-Men: Apocalypse

    Check out his interview with YAHOO MOVIES! where he discusses the 2016 film below and enjoy the Comic-Con poster above.

    Singer On Apocalypse:

    “Apocalypse is a pretty cool character, X-Men is always centered around the fight between mutants and humans. This one is a bit different, it deals with the concept of ancient mutantism, gods and men. It deals with issues that are global. Apocalypse makes no distinction between humans and mutants, only between the weak and the strong. He as a character is what is so ultimately compelling.”

    Singer On The Younger Versions Of Jean, Scott, Storm and Nightcrawler:

    “These are very different characters than they were in the films X-Men 1, 2, and 3,” he states. “They are at times in their lives when they are at the most opposite of what they would become. That’s a thrill to me, to take characters I crafted so many years ago and flip them completely on their side and show how they evolved and began.”

    Singer On The Classic Suits: 

    “The X-Men are sort of a fighting team, so it was always an attempt at being realistic to have them in fighting uniforms, flight suits, things like that,” Singer suggests. “In ‘X-Men: First Class,’ which I produced and wrote the story for, we hark back to the original colors of the original costumes from the 1963 comics. I will say that in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse,’ there is a chance -without giving anything away- that you may get closer to seeing what I think, Mr. X-Men News, you are interested in seeing. I know its something that I’ve been interested in, I just always wanted to do it the right way.”



    The Brothers Warner Get Mad, Release "Suicide Squad" Trailer

    I honestly don't know why it surprises a studio that bootleg footage of some kind would come out of a presentation at Comic-Con anymore. Especially footage from a big nerd film like Suicide Squad. Trust me, I'm not condoning bootlegging of a studio's property, I just expect this to happen at these giant conventions. 

    Apparently it pisses Warner Bros off to no end and they decided, "If you can't beat them, join them" releasing the Comic-Con trailer after trying unsuccessfully to stall the virus like spread of the illegally obtained material.

    Here is a statement from Sue Kroll, President Worldwide Marketing and International Distribution At Warner Bros:

    “Warner Bros. Pictures and our anti-piracy team have worked tirelessly over the last 48 hours to contain the Suicide Squad footage that was pirated from Hall H on Saturday. We have been unable to achieve that goal. Today we will release the same footage that has been illegally circulating on the web, in the form it was created and high quality with which it was intended to be enjoyed. We regret this decision as it was our intention to keep the footage as a unique experience for the Comic Con crowd, but we cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from our presentation.”

    The studio had no choice in this case if you ask me, but considering the mostly positive reception the trailer is getting, seems like a win despite the lawyer-like statement from Kroll aimed at an overzealous fanboy. 

    Enjoy the trailer below and get your first real glimpse of Jared Leto's Joker and hear the Heath Ledger like voice for the first time in HD. 



    'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' - Comic-Con Trailer Reaction


    First Poster For Michael Dougherty's "Krampus"

    I've always been a big fan of Michael Dougherty. I've paid close attention to his career; from his work on X-Men & Superman Returns to his horror-themed art and directorial venture on Trick 'r Treat. I'm grateful for his part in bringing the Man Of Steel back to the big screen for the first time in almost 30 years and the excitement and anticipation leading up to the film has not been duplicated for me personally since. 

    When I heard he was taking the lead on Christmas horror film Krampus, I knew he was the right person for the job based on my appreciation for Trick 'r Treat. Take a peak at the poster below and if you haven't had the time to check out his art please head over to his WEBSITE, a lot of these images helped to inspire Trick 'r Treat

    When his dysfunctional family clashes over the holidays, young Max (Emjay Anthony) is disillusioned and turns his back on Christmas. Little does he know, this lack of festive spirit has unleashed the wrath of Krampus: a demonic force of ancient evil intent on punishing non-believers. All hell breaks loose as beloved holiday icons take on a monstrous life of their own, laying siege to the fractured family’s home and forcing them to fight for each other if they hope to survive.


    "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" - Comic-Con Trailer

    Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day savior, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before.
    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, and Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The film also stars Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, with Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane returning from Man of Steel, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Jeremy Irons as Alfred, and Holly Hunter in a role newly created for the film. Jason Momoa will also be making an appearance as Aquaman

    Nikolaj Arcel Officially Set to Direct Stephen King's 'The Dark Tower'

    Coming out of Comic Con this weekend, news comes that Sony Pictures and Media Rights Capital have closed their deal with Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel to direct Stephen King's The Dark Tower, the first entry in what they hope will be a series of films.

    Arcel will rewrite the original script - by Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner - with another Danish filmmaker, Anders Thomas Jensen.

    Both men have Oscar credentials with Arcel having been nominated for the foreign language film, A Royal Affair, and Jensen having won for his short film, Election Night.

    Sony is set to handle theatrical distribution with MRC developing a companion TV series as well, much like Stephen King's other, long in-development adaptation, The Stand. That project is further along, with a Showtime series set to debut prior to a cumulative feature film.

    Oscar winning producer Brian Grazer and fellow Oscar winning director Ron Howard are still aboard the project as execs, along with King himself. They've been involved in this project for a while, since it was being developed at both Warner Bros. and Universal.

    While I have never read any of The Dark Tower series (I know, I should), the first installment - entitled The Gunslinger - centers on the main protagonist, Roland Deschain, and his relationship with a young protege, Jake Chambers.

    Both Javier Bardem and Russell Crowe were previously attached to play Deschain and it's unknown if either actor is still interested in the role.

    All I say is this: The Dark Tower, much like The Stand, is a massive, massive undertaking. There are numerous books and millions upon millions of fans over the past 30 years. They better know what they're doing and not screw this up, period.
