First Trailer for ‘Creed II’ Hits, Teases Son of Drago

The first trailer for the boxing sequel Creed II was released this morning from MGM. The film, which follows Apollo Creed’s son Adonis, picks up where the first Creed left off, plus some years for good measure.

maxresdefault.jpg

Michael B. Jordan is back as Adonis, and he’s going to meet who will possibly be his greatest opponent. We’re not saying it’s the son of Ivan Drago, but we already know it’s the son of Drago.

Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.

Jordan is joined by the return of Rocky himself Sylvester Stallone, Tessa Thompson, Wood Harris, Russell Hornsby, Florian “Big Nasty” Munteanu, Andre Ward, Phylicia Rashad, and Dolph Lundgren.

Creed II is set to hit theaters on November 21st, 2018.

Trailer: Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome Looks Like A Thrilling Emotional Thrill-Ride

I’m a sucker for films that take us into the imagination of our main characters. It’s one of the reasons why I’m one of the few people who loves (and regularly watches) The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, a film that walked us through a pivotal point in a middle-aged man’s life. With Robert Zemeckis’ next offering, Welcome to Marwen, we get some of that same flavor dialed up to 11.

The reason? We aren’t just dealing with a middle-aged man here, but a man who has gone through real physical and mental trauma, and uses his hand-crafted world as a means to cope with it. In true Zemeckis style, this isn’t going to be a standard drama, but one where we’ll get to see this world actually come to life, and it’s there that the emotions and thrills really start to come.

As someone who wasn’t sold on the concept (because it sounded depressing as hell), I found myself smiling quite a bit during the trailer, enjoying the approach taken to tell the story.

Below is the official synopsis for Welcome to Marwen:

“When a devastating attack shatters Mark Hogancamp (Carell) and wipes away all memories, no one expected recovery. Putting together pieces from his old and new life, Mark meticulously creates a wondrous town where he can heal and be heroic. As he builds an astonishing art installation—a testament to the most powerful women he knows—through his fantasy world, he draws strength to triumph in the real one.

In a bold, wondrous and timely film from this revolutionary pioneer of contemporary cinema, Welcome to Marwen shows that when your only weapon is your imagination…you’ll find courage in the most unexpected place.”

Patience Conviction Revenge and Moth & Whisper Launch in AfterShock Comics September 2018 Solicits

Two new creator-owned titles launch in September from AfterShock Comics, the crime drama Patience Conviction Revenge by Patrick Kindlon and Marco Ferrari and the genderfluid action adventure Moth & Whisper by Ted Anderson and Jen Hickman.

PATIENCE CONVICTION REVENGE #1 CVR A FERRARI

PATIENCE CONVICTION REVENGE #1 CVR A FERRARI

JUL181502
(W) Patrick Kindlon (A/CA) Marco Ferrari

NEW SERIES!

Disregarded, disrespected and dismissed, Renny has a chip on his shoulder.

Once an equal partner in a criminal syndicate that rules Las Vegas, he now finds himself living in a shack in the desert. But the shack has a workshop, and Renny’s been busy. It’s time to march his robot army into the neon hell of a cyberpunk Vegas and retake his seat at the table. Or take the wood from the table and build enough caskets for the whole syndicate.

Old friends better run, because Operation PATIENCE! CONVICTION! REVENGE! is underway.

Like an Elmore Leonard novel set in the world of Blade Runner, PATIENCE! CONVICTION! REVENGE! is offbeat and often funny, but all about the dark corners of cities and minds. A violent criminal genius with a bad case of monomania makes for the most fun you’ll have with a comic this year.

Written by Patrick Kindlon (There’s Nothing There, We Can Never Go Home) and drawn by Marco Ferrari (Famous Monsters Presents) PATIENCE! CONVICTION! REVENGE! continues Kindlon’s exploration of difficult characters and irreverent themes. Having broken the chains of good taste, Kindlon goes all-in and writes a vengeance-obsessed lunatic as if he’s riding beside him-all wrapped in a gangster tale like no other, and that HAD to be told at AfterShock!

NEW SERIES!

Everyone knows that the two greatest thieves in the city are the Moth and the Whisper. Very few know that the Moth and the Whisper disappeared six months ago. And what nobody knows is that the new Moth and Whisper are actually one person pretending to be both of them. One supremely skilled but uncertain young genderfluid thief: Niki, the child of the Moth and the Whisper.

Niki has been trained by their parents in the arts of stealth and infiltration, but they’re still just a teenager, and now they’re alone, searching for their parents in a hostile cyberpunk dystopia. Corporations run the streets while crime lords like Ambrose Wolfe run the alleys-identity is a commodity and privacy is impossible. The truth about Niki’s parents and their disappearance is out there, but can Niki survive long enough to find it?

A YA cyberpunk thriller starring a genderqueer super-thief, MOTH & WHISPER is the brainchild of Ted Anderson (My Little Pony, Adventure Time) and Jen Hickman (Jem and the Holograms, The Dead), that just HAD to be told at AfterShock!

Liam Moran, the son of notorious Irish Mobster “Big Jim” Moran, was only supposed to send a warning. A machine gun message to the Jordan Khoury: Pay up or pay the price. Unfortunately, things went sideways, and now…someone is dead. Broken hearts and bitter questions are left in the wake of his untimely murder. But before they can be addressed, it’s time for a fractious Khoury family funeral.

An outcast son will return home, a mother will mourn, and a guilty grieving grandfather will finally reveal his dark criminal secret.

However, as clients are finally revived, they learn this corporate pitch was too good to be true-instead of stepping into a life of their dreams, they awaken into a never-ending nightmare.

The world is at war-and this recently revived group of every day people are handed a gun, body armor and an ultimatum. They must fight in this war, against unknown opponents and horrors, in order to secure their place in a brave new world that doesn’t want them around.

And as these normal people survive wave after wave of technologically advanced horrors, they soon realize the answers to their questions are no comfort, and the future that they wanted might never be in sight.

“Sebela turns the common tropes of war fiction on their head and, in the surreal and unsettling future built by Hayden Sherman’s art, creates a core cast of characters made relatable by their discomfort and their longing for the world and families they’ve left behind.” – C.K. Stewart, NEWSARAMA

Pull List Roundtable 6/20/2018 – X-Men Gold #30, Shanghai Red, Tony Stark Iron Man #1, Tank Girl All Stars #1 & More


James Fulton

It’s not a terribly exciting week. The only debut I’m considering is Shanghai Red, which is about people being kidnapped and forced to work on ships in Portland (being Shanghaied, really). I like the concept, but I’ve never been impressed with Christopher Sebela’s writing when I’ve sampled it before. I’ll give it a look.

Otherwise, I’m looking forward to new issues of Crude, Days of Hate, Deadly Class, Gideon Falls, and Cable (never thought I’d say that about the last one, but Thompson and Nadler’s run has been terrific).


Mike Maillaro

  • JUSTICE LEAGUE #2 and AVENGERS #3 – I really didn’t intend to lump these two books in together, but I have similar feelings about both. Both books got off to real hot starts in the first few pages of the first issue, but kind of got a little boring. I have to admit, I am not a huge fan of stories of worldwide threats where everyone is going to die unless the heroes do something epic. It’s fun for events every now and then, but not really the core of the main team books. That is actually why I prefer when the JUSTICE LEAGUE and AVENGERS have a lot more street level characters. I am still mostly enjoying these series, but it’s just not quite what I want from either of them.
  • ANT-MAN AND THE WASP #2 – I was very happy to hear that they are bringing back Wasp in her own series later this year. She is definitely one of my favorite of Marvel’s newer characters, and my daughter adores her as a science-minded girl herself. The first issue of this series was great. Scott Lang and Nadia Pym have a real unique dynamic.
  • TONY STARK IRON MAN #1 – Dan Slott takes over IRON MAN. I typically like Slott’s work quite a bit, so I am real curious what new direction he can take Tony Stark. Should be a very fun book if nothing else. We also get the last issue of his ten year run on Spider-Man with this week’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #801. He will definitely be missed, but it is definitely time for him to try something new.

Matt Graham

  • Tank Girl All Stars #1 – A Tank Girl anthology celebrating 30 years. Series artist Brett Parson carved his own identity into the recent series, but we’re getting an Ashley Wood variant cover and Jim Mahfood, Warwick Johnson-Cadwell, and Chris Wall contributing guest art.

Dope.

  • Barbarella #7 – Mike Carey has nailed the Euro-comic feel of the original Barbarella. He’s British, so that makes sense. Kenan Yarar and colourist Mohan do gorgeous work. Really, this book looks like little else on the shelves. I know Dynamite still plays with sex appeal, but this book is some clever sci-fi and social commentary. This chapter, Barbarella is lost in a maze of Unstable Space Time and pursued by angry prospectors over a resource claim. When you’re Barbarella, that just means something else is going to go wrong.
  • Taarna #2 – Issue #1 dropped in February, but with Alex Di Campi scripting and Stephane Roux on art, the wait may be worth it. Nah, it’s still ridiculous. Still a cool sci-fantasy story starring Heavy Metal’s own Queen of Justice told at a breakneck pace that feels just like the Heavy Metal animation once you’re immersed. Di Campi, as always, uses the full power of the comic book medium by maximizing the showing and minimizing the telling.
  • X-Men Gold #30 – In true Mighty Marvel Manner, this issue was spoiled already to pave the way for the next big thing in X-Men. I won’t discuss that spoiler, but I do think it’s a more interesting choice, although there’s some fan bias there. And even without the spoiler, Kelly Thompson got that X-Men book I’ve been asking for every time I write one of these up, so I have that going for me.

Anyway, Gold is ending in September. I have many questions, but at this point I’m just filling out the run. I hope we see a writing team change up with whatever happens during that relaunch.

Blu-ray Review: Coming To America

To celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Coming To America the film is being released again. This is the first Eddie Murphy movie I ever saw and to this day it is still my favorite. He really was never able to top this film. So what else is there to say about it after all this time?

Murphy stars as Prince Akeem Joffer of Zamunda. All of Akeem’s life everything has been done for him, including wiping his own butt. He has just turned 21 and his parents King Jaffe (James Earl Jones) and Queen Aeoleon (Madge Sinclair) tell Akeem it is time to meet his wife. However, Akeem isn’t happy with an arranged marriage. He wants to meet a woman who will like him for who he is and have thoughts of her own, not just bow to his wishes. He convinces his father to let him and his friend Semmi (Arsenio Hall) go to america for three months. King Jaffe thinks it is to “sow his royal oats” but in truth Akeem wants to find a suitable bride.

Akeem and Semmi choose Queens, New York. It seems to them the best place to find a woman who would one day be a queen. Akeem doesn’t want a woman to love him because he is rich and a prince, so he and Semmi go undercover as students. They get a crappy apartment and end up getting a job at McDowell’s (not to be confused with McDonald’s) because Akeem meets and instantly falls for the daughter of the owner Lisa (Shari Headley). Now all Akeem has to do is win over her dad, Cleo (John Amos), and convince her current boyfriend Darryl (Eriq La Salle) is a jerk, which should be pretty easy because it is.

Coming To America is a classic 80s comedy that is still as funny today as it was then. On top of those great actors already listed the film also features Louie Anderson as a fellow McDowel’s employee, Samuel L. Jackson as a guy who tries to rob the restaurant, and a very young Cuba Gooding Jr., as a kid getting his haircut at the barber shop.

Oh, the barber shop. Murphy would later put a nail in the coffin of the idea of him playing multiple characters, but it was first introduced her to hilarious results. Murphy not only plays Akeem, but also Clarence, the barber shop owner, Saul, an old Jewish guy who hangs out at the barber shop and Randy, the terrible singer of a band called Sexual Chocolate. Hall also plays multiple characters. On top of Semmi he plays Morris, another barber, Reverend Brown, and an unattractive woman who hits on them in a club. So in the barbershop scene when Akeem and Semmi walk in you have Murphy playing three characters and Hall playing two. Each character is so distinct you’d hardly notice it was them in all the rolls.

Like I said above, I really don’t know what else to say about this film. It’s a damn funny movie and if you haven’t seen it yet you really should do so sooner rather than later.

The film is presented in a widescreen format and 5.1 Dolby Audio. The film has never looked or sounded better.

Extras include: Prince-ipal Photography: The Coming Together Of America: (25 min.) Fit For Akeem: The Costumes of Coming To America: (18 min.) Character Building: The Many Faces of Rick Baker: (13 min.) Composing America: The Musical Talents of Nile Rodgers: (11 min.) A Vintage Sit-Down with Eddie and Arsenio: (6 min.)

It’s interesting that Aresnio Hall never really acted again after this movie. He played himself a few time and did cameos and stuff, but never to the level at which he appeared in Coming To America, which is a shame because he’s really funny in it. Everyone is funny in this film. It’s a very funny film. Seriously, if you haven’t seen it do it already!

Paramount Pictures presents Coming To America. Written by David Sheffield and Barry W. Blaustein. Story by Eddie Murphy. Directed by John Landis. Starring: Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, John Amos, Madge Sinclair and Shari Headley. Running time: 117 min. Rating: R. Released on Blu-Ray: June 12, 2018.

RUMOR – A Whole Lot Of Alleged Avengers 4 Leaks Appear On Reddit

****THIS POST CONTAINS POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR AVENGERS 4****

…….

……

…..

….

..

.

Grain. Salt. Ready?

Reddit is back at it, as there are more alleged leaks to report from the popular website. This time it has to do with Avengers 4. Reddit user abigfriend claims to have some friends on the inside over at Marvel, and while he didn’t say in what departments his connections worked in, he did give a vast amount of information. I will give a sample of the kind of information abigfriend is working with, but if you want to read their entire post you can do so here.

Going to give a second spoiler warning here because abigfriend comes strong with some really bold claims, and honestly, a lot of them sound plausible.

“There are many callbacks to the original IRON MAN 1. For example, there is a scene where Tony and Cap are off stealing the tesseract from Avengers 1 era and Thanos is about to catch Tony and kill him. However, Cap says he will fight Thanos 1v1 to buy Tony more time to escape. Tony says that he will die fighting Thanos and that they should stick to their plan of escaping, Cap responds saying “This was always the plan” THIS SCENE IS A CALLBACK TO THE SCENE IN IRON MAN 1 WHERE YINSEN SACRIFICES HIMSELF TO ALLOW TONY TO ESCAPE.”

RELATED: Samuel L Jackson Thinks He Knows The Ending Of Avengers 4

So there is one enticing example of what the post has to offer. This is probably the biggest supposed leaks post I have come across. Seriously, folks, either abigfriend does have some well-connected friends at Marvel, or he spent a lot of time dreaming all this stuff up.

What are your thoughts on these alleged leaks? Let us know in the comments down below!

Key Walking Dead Issues Get Blind Bag Edition Variants for Walking Dead Day

Do you enjoy buying variant covers, but feel that actually seeing them before you hand over your money takes some of the fun out of it? Well, you’re in luck, pal, because Image Comics has announced that, in celebration of Walking Dead Day on October 13th, the Walking Dead’s fifteenth anniversary, they will be releasing a series of key issue reprints with brand new variant covers by the likes of J. Scott Campbell, James Harren, Emma Ríos, Declan Shalvey, Sana Takeda, and “other exciting to-be-announced artists.” The catch: they’re all inside black polybags, which means you can’t see exactly which version you’re getting: a regular variant, a sketch variant, or a virgin variant.

“I say, I say, this initiative will give Walking Dead fans what they want,” said Walking Dead co-creator Colonel Robert Kirkman in a statement that was not included in the press release, but definitely happened in our imagination. “Which is me having more money.”

To that end, you might also be interested in the previously announced 15th-Anniversary Box. There are retailer variants too.

The variants will be available for $3.99 each in October.  Here’s the issues included:

THE WALKING DEAD #1: 15TH Anniversary Blind Bag variant, Diamond Code MAY188674
THE WALKING DEAD #2: 15TH Anniversary Blind Bag variant, Diamond Code MAY188675
THE WALKING DEAD #7: 15TH Anniversary Blind Bag variant, Diamond Code MAY188676

Could Emily Blunt Return For Sicario 3?

It only takes one look at the poster or a quick view of the trailer to realize that Emily Blunt does not appear in Sicario: Day Of The Soldado. While the film will feature Josh Brolin’s Matt Graver and Benicio Del Toro’s Alejandro Gillick, Blunt’s Kaye Macer sits this operation out it seems. However, Macer may be on the minds of filmmakers as they think about a third chapter.

Recently, producer Trent Luckinbill sat down with CinemaBlend to discuss the sequel’s release. Eventually, the discussion turned toward Blunt and whether her character could return in a third film. Luckinbill was happy to answer that question:

“Sure. Yeah. Absolutely. I think [writer Taylor Sheridan] certainly has some ideas about all of that, but we’re open to that world and certainly would love to bring Emily back. We haven’t written the script yet, but yeah it would make a lot of sense. We’re all fans of the movie, we’ve all come to the same conclusion, which is ‘It would be great to see her again.’ So I think we’re striking up those conversations now.”

Related – EXCLUSIVE: Josh Brolin On The Amazing Sicario: Day Of The Soldado Script

Both films were written by Taylor Sheridan (Hell Or High WaterWind River), who will also be penning the third film. In Sicario, Blunt’s Macer is an FBI agent who is enlisted with a government task force to help fight in the escalating war on drugs at the U.S./Mexico border. In Sicario: Day Of The Soldado, Brolin’s Graver and Del Toro’s Gillick have been given the green light by the U.S. government to wage war against the Mexican drug cartels who are suspected of sneaking terrorists into the United States.

Sicario: Day Of The Soldado hits theaters next Friday, June 29th.

Jurassic Park Gets a New Mondo Poster Release Today

Jurassic Park is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. With Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom opening in theaters on Friday, Mondo is celebrating with a new poster release from the film that started it all. The new poster features the dig from the beginning of the film, with Alan Grant and Ellie Sattler digginf up a raptor fossil, long before they could have ever imagined they would meet one (or three) face to face. The poster features wonderful art by Claire Hummel. It is limited to 300 pieces and will cost you $45. It will go up for order sometime today. Be sure to follow Mondo on Twitter so you know when it goes live, that is where they post it first.

JURASSIC PARK by Claire Hummel 18″x24″ Screen Print, Edition of 300. Printed by DL Screenprinting. Expected to Ship September 2018. $45

It’s dinosaur week here at Mondo as we celebrate the opening of the latest chapter in the iconic JURASSIC PARK franchise!

In addition to Michael Giacchino’s excellent soundtrack for the new film, we’ll have a gorgeous new poster by Claire Hummel for the one that started it all – JURASSIC PARK! Steven Spielberg’s seminal classic is a film that truly stands the test of time, inspiring as much magic, awe and wonder today as it did 25 years ago. Claire’s approach, choosing to focus on man’s meddling with science, is incredibly smart and one of our favorite posters for the film yet. We couldn’t be more proud of how this one turned out.

JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM opens in theaters this Friday. The film is a big dose of summer fun and we definitely encourage getting out to see it big and loud. This poster will be available Wednesday (6/20) at NOON (CT) via mondotees.com.

TERMINATOR Star Linda Hamilton Is Looking Bad-Ass As Ever As Sarah Connor In These New Set Photos

Which of Today’s Spider-Man Comics Will Make Make You Cry More?

Today sees the publication of Amazing Spider-Man #301 and Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #1. The former is Dan Slott’s final Spider-man story before he jumped ship to Tony Stark: Iron Man #1 also out today (and advance reviewed here). And the latter is drawn by Mike Allred and Laura Allred, Dan’s team on his Silver Surfer comic book.

Both are ‘very special issues’ and try to bring light on earlier moments in Spider-Man’s life. And dovetail right onto Uncle Ben, the man who gave Peter Parker – and Spider-Man – a moral grounding denied to others, and the sense that with great power must come great responsibility. He died that Spider-Man might live.

But don’t worry, both are very action-oriented. Amazing Spider-Man #801 tells a story of Spider-Man’s earliest tales, foiled a corner store robbery and saving the life of one man in the process, a life then well lived.

Peter Parker The Spectacular Spider-Man Annual #1 tells the story of J Jonah Jameson and how the decisions he had made as a newspaper publisher and mayor had consequences, including a threat on his life. But also how Jonah J Jameson tries to give chance in life to those who have been denied them – and that includes Peter Parker.

Oh, and an extra story with Chris Bachalo set in Uncle Ben’s graveyard.

These comics should totally have been bagged with Kleenex. But which will get through more sheets? The fight is on…

Disney Raises Bid To Acquire Most Of Fox To $71.3 Billion — Fox Agrees?

disney fox merger

Let the games begin. 21st Century Fox must be feeling pretty damn good about itself right now. All of a sudden, it’s like that girl in high school who everyone wants to ask out, as over the course of the past few weeks, the bid to acquire most of its assets has been raised by nearly $20 billion.

As you may recall, months back, Disney put a bid of $52.4 billion to acquire most of 21st Century Fox’s assets, minus Fox News, Fox Business Network, and Fox Sports, which will be spun off into a separate company. However, just a few days back, Comcast threw down the gauntlet, putting in a $65 billion all-cash bid. The big question here was now if Disney would let things lie or take on Comcast with a higher offer.

Now, according to CNN Money, Disney has raised their bid to $71.3 billion, topping Comcast’s offer by $6.3 billion. There is one key difference here, however, that makes this offer all the more attractive. There is a provision that allows Fox shareholders to decide if they want payment in stock or in cash.

RELATED – Comcast Makes $65 Billion All-Cash Bid To Acquire Most Of 21st Century Fox Assets

As of this writing, Rupert Murdoch, executive chairman of 21st Century Fox, believes that Disney is putting out the better offer, but is totally open to accepting a bid from Comcast should they raise it. However, if you were hoping to see a decision made soon, you won’t, as a shareholder meeting to decide the matter has been pushed back to July 10…at least that’s what CNN Money says.

However, there is a conflicting report from Bloomberg that claims that Disney and Fox have agreed on this amount and that their deal is going forward. I suppose time will tell on that front. At the end of the day, this deal would still have to go through regulators, but with the AT&T-Time Warner merger going through, there seems to be little problem with that. We’ll have to wait and see which outlet was correct.

Here’s what Disney CEO Bob Iger had to say in a statement:

“The acquisition of 21st Century Fox will bring significant financial value to the shareholders of both companies, and after six months of integration planning we’re even more enthusiastic and confident in the strategic fit of the assets and the talent at Fox. At a time of dynamic change in the entertainment industry, the combination of Disney’s and Fox’s unparalleled collection of businesses and franchises will allow us to create more appealing high-quality content, expand our direct-to-consumer offerings and international presence, and deliver more personalized and compelling entertainment experiences to meet growing consumer demand around the world.”

Creed II Trailer: It’s More Than Just A Fight

I don’t know how they do it, but that first Creed film was nothing short of fantastic, and with this new trailer for its sequel, Creed II, hitting this morning, it had a lot to live up to. And yet, it managed to exceed all my expectations. In addition to it retaining that raw style brought in by Ryan Coogler, director Steven Caple Jr. has also ensured this story has just as much at stake than its predecessor — and that’s with the trailer barely even showing anything.

Based on what we’ve seen here, Adonis feels the need to take on a certain fight, despite Rocky’s advice for him to step down. Unlike his opponent, Adonis now has a family and everything to lose, while his opponent does not. Of course, those of us who have been following know who the opponent is: none other than Ivan Drago’s son — the son of the man who killed his father.

Below is the official synopsis for Creed II:

“Life has become a balancing act for Adonis Creed. Between personal obligations and training for his next big fight, he is up against the challenge of his life. Facing an opponent with ties to his family’s past only intensifies his impending battle in the ring. Rocky Balboa is there by his side through it all and, together, Rocky and Adonis will confront their shared legacy, question what’s worth fighting for, and discover that nothing’s more important than family. Creed II is about going back to basics to rediscover what made you a champion in the first place, and remembering that, no matter where you go, you can’t escape your history.”

I was sold by the concept, but based on this trailer, the concept matched by the filmmaking and performances. One very telling moment that, I think, proves how much faith the filmmakers have in its audience is that the camera doesn’t linger on Drago’s name for too long, but keeps it on just long enough for us to read, which is a great sign that the film could still bring subtlety. But what did you think? Let us know your thoughts down below!

Lex Luthor Gets an Upgrade in Justice League #2 (SPOILERS)

Superman has had his Superman robots since the nineteen fifties. A product of the Silver Age, Superman duplicate robots were used as a substitute for Superman when he was away – serving him in the Fortress of Solitude or helping him preserve his secret identity from an inquisitive Lois Lane. Then, of course, Lois Lane had to have duplicate robots of her own, so did Supergirl, Linda Lee and others.

By the nineteen-seventies, comics had grown up (a little) and Earth pollution was an in-canon reason why the Superman robots no longer worked.

Then comics stopped pretending they were grown up and they began to return, first as non-human/Kryptonian robots, and then in the fashion of their earlier portrayal, admittedly with tongue-in-cheek. Until in last week’s Batman Wedding Prelude, they’re limousine drivers.

Lex Luthor, however, hasn’t had as much luck. Lexbots have looked like this in the DC LEGO universe…

And there’s also the household robots designed by Lex Luthor in the novel It’s Superman by Tom DeHaven. Lexbots were sold on the open market as assistants, who could help out with daily chores, but were secretly deadly and programmed to kill.

And more recently in the comic books, I mean, they would tend to stand out in public…

But now? Today’s Justice League suggests they’ve had an upgrade.

Fake Lex Luthors running around the place like Doombots, Iron Man suits or Life Model Decoys. New Model Lex Luthor Army soon anyone? Three Jokers… how about Three Hundred Lexes?

Mondo Music Release of the Week: Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom!

Mondo releases new vinyl special editions every single Wednesday. They are they ultimate edition of whatever they put out, featuring extensive liner notes, brand-new commissioned artwork, and always have a limited-edition size. The vinyl itself is usually colored or a photo disc, as well. Basically, it’s like the Criterion Collection of movie and gaming soundtracks. This week sees the release of the soundtrack to the newest film in the Jurassic World franchise, Fallen Kingdom!

Mondo Vinyl Soundtrack Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Soundtrack 1

Mondo, in partnership with Back Lot Records, is proud to present Michael Giacchino’s incredible soundtrack to JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM.

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort – Jurassic World – was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungle. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor that’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she has now made her mission. Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

JURASSIC PARK: FALLEN KINGDOM is some of the most fun we’ve had in the theaters this year. And Giacchino’s score, which returns more to his penned JURASSIC WORLD score than the John Williams’ cues that bridged the gap in the last film, is evocative of classic Universal horror and haunted house movie scores, breaking from the pack of previous JURASSIC scores. Much like the film itself, Giacchino creates a fun, fresh take on the music of the “Man creates Dinosaurs… Dinosaurs eat Man” series.

Mondo’s web exclusive version of this 2XLP is pressed on 180 Gram Indo-Raptor colored vinyl (Translucent Green with Orange Stripe and Yellow Splatter). Also available on Black vinyl. Featuring original new artwork by JC Richard.

Mondo Vinyl Soundtrack Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom Soundtrack 2

As with all Mondo releases, this will go up for sale on Wednesday at Noon central time. The edition size for these releases are limited as always.It is never worth risking waiting with these. You can grab a copy today right here.

Poison Ivy Swears Off Mind Control – Before Engaging in Mind Control (Damage #6 Spoilers)

So, Poison Ivy has been portrayed as a genocidally murderous supervillain in the recent Damage series. Which is set after her Birds Of Prey appearances as a reformed supervillain working with heroes. And before her Batman appearance where she takes over the entire world with mind control, before being shipped off to the Justice League’s Sanctuary, where she’ll probably get bumped off alongside everyone else.

In today’s Damage #6, we start to get a better idea of why Poison Ivy has been behaving so off-brand (aside from the creators and editors deciding this would be a good story and only having to rewrite it on the fly when everyone kicked off). As she rejects the manipulation of Grodd…

Vows not to be mentally controlled (um, before she does the same to everyone else in Batman)…

And then given a Get Out Of Jail card by Swamp Thing who blames The Green, the plant-based extra-dimensional view of reality, who apparently Swamp Thing is on the outs with.

And seems rather different to the way the Green has been portrayed every other time. The Parliament Of Trees wouldn’t stand for such a rapid reaction force….

DAMAGE #6

Terminator: First BTS Photo Of Mackenzie Davis In Film Reboot

The Terminator reboot has moved full steam ahead since it was announced. After the laughably bad and financial dire Terminator: Genisys, the rights to the Terminator franchise have reverted back to James Cameron somewhat. He did not waste any time announcing a reboot of the franchise under the direction of Tim Miller.

RELATED: Dark/Web’s Gabriel Luna Is A New Terminator, Cast Rounds Out

The title of this film at the moment is simply Terminator or Terminator 6 until we know different and it is currently shooting in Spain. We only know some small details about this movie, both Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton are said to be returning. We also know some of the new cast members as you will see in the related section above, and that the movie has a new ‘face’ in the form of Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049).

Now Just Jared has shared a BTS photo of Mackenzie Davis in costume on Instagram.

How and why Davis becomes the new face of the franchise is unclear, but by looking at the photo above, I’m sure you can probably work out a few things. For one I am putting my money right now on Davis being a future soldier sent back in time for whatever reason this time. If you look at the scarring and wounds, short hair etc. Davis looks like a soldier to me, some have suggested she could also be a Terminator, but I think those look like old scars, not fresh ones.

Is Davis taking on the Kyle Reece role in this reboot? Will this be a complete reboot from the start, or follow on from Terminator and Terminator 2?

Feel free to share your best guesswork in the comments section below. Terminator 6 is due for release on November 22 in 2019.

It’s Still Tough Being Captain Marvel, Post-Civil War II

It’s tough to be Captain Marvel. Oh sure, Carol Danvers is about to be played by Brie Larson in an upcoming movie. But when you’ve been through storylines two years ago such as Civil War II, people in the Marvel Universe are still going to bring her up on it, even though the writer has skipped over to DC Comics, where he can make everyone hate Jonathan Kent instead, or something.

You know, when Captain Marvel helped create a Minority Report-style justice system based on the predictions of an Inhuman who ended up going all cosmic, including the death (now reversed) of War Machine and the death (now reversed) of the Hulk, the Champions quitting the Avengers and putting Tony Stark in a coma in the final battle.

So whether she’s getting it in the neck from the left from Ms Marvel in today’s Champions #21.

And from the right with Tony Stark in Avengers #3…

Trust Thor to be the… man of peace? It’s come to this?

You know, folks, she has a movie on the way. I hope you can all get your ducks in a row and put on a fake front in time for that publicity to hit hard…

Blu-ray Reviews: Sleeping Dogs, Smash Palace & Vigil

During International Cinema discussion, Australia always gets covered for the ’70s and ’80s thanks to its directors that created films that both pleased the art house crowd and the drive-in fanatics. Nearby New Zealand doesn’t seem to get a true mention until the phrase “and then Peter Jackson made all those Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films. While the New Zealand film scene wasn’t as large as Australia, it did have creative period at the same time. Thanks to Arrow Video and Arrow Academy, the work of two directors from the land of Kiwis is getting a deeper appreciation and upgraded resolution. Roger Donaldson and Vincent Ward helped establish New Zealand on the world map and both went to Hollywood with varying levels of success. Their early works show that they were filmmakers ready to show that their land wasn’t just a location for their neighboring country’s directors.

Donaldson’s Sleeping Dogs (1977) is a dystopian tale of a nation whose leader goes beyond martial law and invites the U.S. Army to occupy his country and put down any rebellions. Smith (Jurassic Park‘s Sam Neill) is trying to deal with a bad marriage and vanishes onto a remote island owned by the Maori tribe. He seems able to insulate himself from the outside chaos until he gets accused of being part of a bombing. He quickly finds himself on the run and having to deal with the resistance. He while undercover running a motel, he finds himself in the middle of US Army troops under orders of Colonel Willoughby (The Wild Bunch‘s Warren Oates). Can Smith really stay low as his country suffers? Donaldson and his crew create a fine sense of tension and paranoia on the screen. This is the film that truly got the ball rolling for Neill who was also a New Zealand citizen. The filmmakers were able to establish New Zealand as more than a backlot for Australia.

Smash Palace (1981) is the film that truly established Donaldson as a director of note as it proved to be a big hit at American art house cinemas. Al Shaw (The Quiet Earth‘s Bruno Lawrence) thinks he’s got a great life. The ex-race car driver is back in New Zealand running his family’s car wrecking yard, married to a French woman (Anna Jemison) and raising his daughter (Greer Robson). This is a great life for him. Sadly it’s not that great for his wife. She feels stranded in this middle of nowhere. She didn’t marry an international race car driver to be stuck in a junkyard. Even worse is that her husband won’t hook her up with a reliable car to be able to get around the area. She can’t stand it. While he tinkers in the remains of cars, she ends up having an affair with Al’s best friend who also happens to be a local cop. Things get nasty quick when the relationship is exposed. She leaves with the daughter, but Al can’t handle being separated from his girl. He kidnaps the daughter and heads to the woods. This is an extremely intense film with very little emotions kept in check. Bruno gives such depth to his character that we can’t reduce him down to an abusive husband who grabs the kid. Jemison reflects the frustration of a woman who didn’t marry thinking this was her future. Donaldson does not throttle the emotions as tensions build and explode. While other family in conflict dramas lose their impact over the decades, Smash Palace remains potent.

Vincent Ward is a bit more mystical in his films than Donaldson. Vigil (1984) features a little girl growing up in a remote farming village. It’s a small tight community and they feel a bit out of time with 19th century technological edge and 1970s cars. Toss (Fiona Kay) watches her father herd the sheep and attempt to rescue a ram that feel off a ravine. In the midst of the rescue, a hunter (Frank Whitten) appears. Something goes wrong and the father dies. The hunter carries the body out of the woods and back to the new widow (Penelope Stewart). The hunter tries his best to become the widows new husband, but Toss isn’t game for this happening. She is beyond suspicious of the hunter as he ingratiates himself with the family. Vigil is a very quiet film about people who don’t like to talk too much. This plays like a young adult novel that junior high kids can get easily wrapped into reading with Toss being more than a toss off character. She’s strong in a harsh world. The film goes a bit against definition since it is a family drama wrapped in a world that could be science fiction or fantasy. Ward’s next movie “The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey (1988) would completely cross all those boundaries again. Arrow will release The Navigator on July 24.

Both Donaldson and Ward would have careers in Hollywood. Donaldson would immediately make waves with The Bounty starring Mel Gibson and Anthony Hopkins before sailing across the Pacific Ocean to give us No Way Out, Cadillac Man, The Getaway, Species and Cocktail with Tom Cruise. Ward was supposed to direct Alien3 yet only got a screenwriting credit. He did make Map of the Human Heart and What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams. Both men spearheaded New Zealand as a place where cinema can thrive without turning it all into Middle Earth.

The video is 1.78:1 anamorphic for all three films. The transfers being out the beauty of the locations. You can see the snowcapped mountains behind the junkyard. The audio is uncompressed LPCM mono on all three films. The levels are great. Vigil has a lot of detail in the mix for just one speaker. The films are subtitled.

DC Comics Universe & Justice League #2 Spoilers: The Legion Of Doom Fate Levels Up BIG TIME Plus The New Ultraviolet Lantern Corps & Still Force Debut!

DC Comics Universe and Justice League #2 Spoilers follow.

The Legion Of Doom Fate Levels Up BIG TIME Plus…

…The New Ultraviolet Lantern Corps and Still Force Debut!

The Legion of Doom begins to form this issue after Lex Luthor seemingly killed and stole Vandal Savage’s new Injustice Gang headquarters last issue; an HQ that looks like the 1970’s Legion of Doom base much like the current Justice League Hall of Justice evokes the same Superfriends vibe for their HQ.

Lex Luthor explains the Totality to the team and that to unlock it they must find seven new hidden forces of nature. These will likely coincide or mesh well with each member of the Legion of Doom. For example, the Still Force, the opposite of the Speed Force, seems to be where Gorilla Grodd is headed power-wise and imbued with it by a… baby?

In space, Sinestro finds the next hidden force of the universe; the Ultraviolet Spectrum a hidden spectrum on the emotional spectrum of the various Lantern Corps. He clashes with Green Lantern John Stewart who Batman tried to recruit earlier in the issue.

On Earth, Superman and Martian Manhunter enter another mysterious construct, that looks like a giant head, while…

…John Stewart materializes in the Hall of Justice as head of the new Ultraviolet Lantern Corps ready to kill the Justice League?

The Legion of Doom also discover that the “man” in front of them isn’t the real Lex Luthor, but a robot…

…since the real Lex Luthor is on a mission in…

…Superman’s bloodstream as he enters the giant head with Martian Manhunter!

IDW Gets Animated With A ‘Star Trek Vs. Transformers’ Miniseries

IDW Gets Animated With A 'Star Trek Vs. Transformers' Miniseries

Optimus Prime Directive

Source: A New IDW Comic Is Mashing Up Star Trek and Transformers in the Most Glorious Way Possible

IDW is boldly going where they seem to love to go - geek franchise crossovers. Two of their licensed comic properties, Star Trek and Transformers, have had a lot of comic crossovers with different other properties over the years, but not with one another. Well, that changes this September when Star Trek Vs. Transformers launches.

Star Trek Vs. Transformers is a four-issue miniseries written by John Barber and Mike Johnson, with art by Philip Murphy and colors by Leonardo Ito. The twist to this series is that the series will be based on their animated counterparts; Star Trek: The Animated Series (1973) and The Transformers (1984).

io9 describes the premise of the series:

The series will begin in the Star Trek universe, when the U.S.S. Enterprise answers a distress call on the edge of Klingon Space, only to find a dilithium mine under attack from 20th century-era jets and helicopters. When a certain red truck shows up to lend a hand, however, Kirk and the crew discover that there's more than meets the eye to their new vehicular friends and foes.

Quick Spoilers: Tony Stark Iron Man #1 – Bring on the Hokeyness


Tony Stark:Iron Man #1 is in stores today. Tony Stark returned recently. The new series starts of a bit hokey though. Check out the spoilers below. The spoiled images are redacted, the accompanying text isn’t. Click on the spoiler warnings for the full images.

It was cool to see one of Marvel’s early creations show up again. He needs to be used more often.

 
But I found Tony Stark’s latest armor to be a bit hokey.

X-Men #30 Has Gone Runaway Pryde Over the Internet!

X-Men #30 Has Gone Runaway Pryde Over the Internet!

The issue which comes out tomorrow already has been spoiled. Surprisingly no funerals happen at this superhero wedding.


Given I'm the spoiler for this website, yesterday pages of X-Men #30 found their way onto the internet since a SHOCKING event would occur. Like literally would the wedding of Colossus and Shadowcat go without a hitch? 

Well, if you have gone with the mainstream news (aka the New York Times) then you already know that answer too. 

So this is your last chance (unless you clicked the link to the Times then you're a naughty one aren't ya?)...

 

 

WHELP! 

 

 

Last chance...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After a superfluous cameo from Wolverine (because you know Marvel gotta drag that out as much they can). We get the get the wedding OR DO WE?! 

ouch

Yeah, Kitty Pryde has a bit of cold feet and says no to marrying Colossus. A literal Runaway Pryde. BUT-- a wedding does occur in the issue. Between these two. CUE THE SPINOFF COMIC:

mrmrsx

Yes, Gambit and Rogue tie the knot in the issue instead. Why? To make the internet talk. Me? At least it means Kelly Thompson writing more of the two (she had just previously written a mini-series starring the two). 

And people think Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson marrying out of the blew after a few months was crazy back in the late 80s? So, there you have it. The big wedding that happens in X-Men #30. Will you buy it? I sure as heck won't. I might buy Mr. & Mrs. X though. That was probably the best complete X-Men fun I've had in awhile. 

Oh wait.. we're not gonna have that sort of fun it looks like.

Spoilers X-Men Gold #30

I know that the spoilers have been leaked in other places, however, if you haven’t seen them, here are the week’s biggest spoiler. X-Men Gold #30, featuring the wedding of Colossus and City Pride.

The issue promised the wedding of Colossus and Kitty Pride, or did it.

Remy is never one to pass up an opportunity.

Well this explains it.

Gambit figures someone has already paid for it so why not.

CBS Reportedly Developing Several ‘Star Trek’ TV Projects; Possibly Involving Picard, Khan

CBS Reportedly Developing Several 'Star Trek' TV Projects; Possibly Involving Picard, Khan

Kurtzman extends agreement

Source: Kurtzman Signs CBS Deal to Expand TREK TV Development

Alex Kurtzman recently took over as showrunner for the CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery. CBS apparently likes what he is doing as they have "extended his production agreement" through the year 2023. The company gave the official word on his Star Trek involvement with the following statement:

As part of the new production deal, Kurtzman will supervise the expansion of CBS' "Star Trek" franchise for television, developing new series, mini-series and other content opportunities, including animation.

 

Unofficially, there are some rumblings about what these project are. According to The Hollywood Reporter, one of the projects may have the involvement of Sir Patrick Stewart, possibly reprising his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. It's been more than a generation since Picard's Enterprise, will we be treated to Star Trek: The Next Next Generation?

Variety brings rumors of four Trek-related projects in development:

  • A Starfleet Academy series from creators Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz (Runaways); this is an idea bandied about as far back as the 1980s.
  • A secret limited series.
  • A limited series involving genetic superman, Khan Noonien Singh. This is possibly what Wrath of Khan director Nicholas Meyers has been working on aside from producing Discovery.
  • A secret animated series.

 

Is any of this true? Well, that Kurtzman has extended his contract is, but as for the rest, we'll just have to wait. It might not be too much longer. Whatever we get, it's a good bet it won't be on broadcast TV. We'll see…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: Toby Jones On CGI And Choosing Roles

Toby Jones is highly regarded as one of the best on-screen actors today with appearances over a hundred roles from thrillers with Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy to comic movies with Captain America to horror with The Mist and even to voice Dobby for Harry Potter movies.

With so many notable film franchises under his belt, Jones will be appearing in the upcoming Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom as an arms dealer auctioneer, Gunnar Eversol. Eversol is a greedy arms dealer, who wants to market dinosaurs as military weapons.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom stars Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Rafe Spall, Justice Smith and Daniella Pineda. It’s the follow-up sequel to rebooted franchise with 2015’s Jurassic World. In this film, the volcano in the island amusement part had erupted and everyone has plans to save the dinosaurs from their certain evolutionary demise.

LRM Online had an exclusive phone interview with Toby Jones earlier this month. We talked about the roles he plays, JA Bayona, CGI special effects and his fond memories of Jurassic Park.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom will be playing in theaters nationwide this Friday.

Read our interview transcript below.

LRM: I am so pleased to actually have a chance to speak with you. You’re one of my favorite actors.

Toby Jones: That’s a lovely thing to say. We’re obviously going to get along very well, Gig.

LRM: [Laughs] That’ll be great. How did they approach you with this role of Mr. Eversol for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom? Was it made for you?

Toby Jones: It was a very standard procedure. They’ve come up with this part and asked me to look at it and see what you think. Often the case, you look at the part and go, “Well, I really liked JA Bayona and I would love to work with him.” I also remembered Jurassic Park. Let me have a chat to JA about this part. We worked on the part together. It was great actually work with him. That was as much a big deal for me is working on Jurassic World.

LRM: Let’s talk about your character of Gunner Eversol here. Why are you attracted too this character? This villain?

Toby Jones: I think it’s fun to play. Well, I suppose any part I’m playing I’m trying to make it as different from anything else I’ve done. I’ve never played this kind of immoral, global, arms dealing auctioneer before. [Laughs] That has never been propped up. I think I was interested in that. When we talked to JA, we thought we can have some fun with referencing people in the real world and within the fictional world. At the time, that was fun today.

LRM: You did look like you had a lot of fun with your character. How much fun did you had, especially with the auction scene in the movie?

Toby Jones: Those scenes, it’s always extraordinary how long things take to shoot, because of the CGI. They take an awful long time. It has to be shot from every single angle. It’s an enormous studio. It’s the size of the indoraptor. They take a long time and there is a lot of fun to be had when the camera’s on you. [Laughs] It’s all the acting you’re dealing with. There’s a lot of master shots in there and that can be very tiring.

LRM:  Now this was filmed in your home country of England. Am I correct?

Toby Jones: Correct. Yeah.

LRM: Could you describe the setting, the production that they actually have? What exactly were you staring at? Was it a tennis ball in the air?

Toby Jones: No, no. One of the most intriguing things now I think with film, we such developed CGI in such extraordinary special effects through computer generation. At the same time, you’re often dealing with very skilled puppeteers. You have this state of the art technology alongside ancient theatrical techniques. I kind of liked that the fact that they compliment each other. to me Often, we were looking at scale models of what would eventually be computer generated.

LRM: You’ve done so many of these types of movies before, basically with CGI. Does it get easier each time you do it?

Toby Jones: Yeah, I suppose. It feels less and less strange. There is a fundamental strangeness to it for an actor, because you’re so used to [regular acting] Certainly with British actors usually evolve out of theater where everything is concrete, real, human and around you. It becomes more familiar to you, but there’s something basically strange about it. You have to work hard for it not to feel remote and one removed from what you’re doing.

LRM: Do you prefer a acting with real humans or CGI characters yourself?

Toby Jones: Obviously human. Most humans.

LRM: Excellent answer. Eversol is such an interesting villain. Do you enjoy playing villains? Or do you enjoy playing good guys yourself?

Toby Jones: I don’t really see people in those terms of villains and good guys. I know that the film depicted him as a villain. I suppose the interesting thing for me always with any characters to try to see them as people rather than endow them with moral qualities. Above and beyond that, I’m always trying to do something different on things that I’ve never done before.

LRM: How do you pick or choose your roles? You must have played over 100 different characters in your lifetime already.

Toby Jones: It’s really that. I’ve been trying to keep things contrasting. It’s always on the basis of a script. So there’ll be something about a project that’ll be interesting.

LRM: Since Jurassic World is part of a long franchise. What was your fondest memory about this franchise yourself?

Toby Jones: Oh! That’s a good question. I remembered the first film I had a profound effect on everyone on so many levels. It was such a revolution in computer generated technology. It was staggering on what Spielberg and his team managed to do. In that sense, I can’t believe it’s 25 years ago. It’s so amazing about the skills with which those effects were. We’re so used to it now. We’re used to seeing dinosaurs, the fully fledged, convincing dinosaurs. We don’t even think about it. At the time, it was so utterly extraordinary. You felt like the characters in the film.

LRM: Can you talk about some of your upcoming projects? I’m actually very interested in hearing you voice Owl in the upcoming Christopher Robin, the Winnie the Pooh movie.

Toby Jones: For me, the Winnie the Pooh films, that’s one I would do it without even thinking about it. I loved those books growing up with my children. Love those books. I’ve worked with Marc Forster on Finding Neverland before. He’s a charming guy. That one, I just do for those reasons alone.

I’ve done a film in New Orleans with Carol Morley [for Out of Blue]. She’s a very exciting British independent filmmaker. So there’s that one to coming. I’m about to start shooting a TV show that I’ve written in the UK.

LRM: Thank you. You made my day today

Toby Jones: Thank you. Thank you.

Robert Kirkman’s Invincible Has Been Greenlit By Amazon Studios

Creator of AMC’s The Walking Dead (does anyone else read show’s title in the voice of the recap guy?), Robert Kirkman, has received the go-ahead for the apdaptation of his comic Invincible. The show will be an hour-long adult animated series that will air on Amazon.

Head of Amazon scripted genre programming Sharon Yguado:

“Robert has an uncanny talent to predict the zeitgeist, and we are incredibly excited to see him break boundaries in an animated one-hour format. In a world saturated with superhero fare, we trust Robert to subvert expectations while encapsulating a story filled with heart and adrenaline. We love his ambitious plan for the show and believe it will look like nothing else on television.”
Robert Kirkman:
“I couldn’t be more proud of the series Cory Walker, Ryan Ottley and I did together for over 15 years. To know our characters will live on in multiple iterations in other media is almost too exciting to bear! What Amazon is allowing us to do in animated form is nothing short of ground-breaking, and I can’t wait for our rabid fan base to experience it.”
With The Walking Dead appearing to fall apart at the seems, Kirkman has now landed the second adaptation of one of his comics, and will continue to produce other content for Amazon.

Invincible follows the story of Mark Grayson, the powerless the son of the world’s most powerful superhero who begins to develop super abilities after his seventeenth birthday. The comic launched way back in 2003 and had a 144-issue run.

Superman IV: The Quest for Peace’s Villain Making DC Comics Debut

The Nuclear Man, who was the main antagonist in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace, is coming to DC Comics this August.

An Instagram post from DC Comics revealed a sketch of Nuclear Man from artist Nick Derington. The drawing showcases an angry Nuclear Man in all his villainous splendor.

Back in November 2017, acclaimed comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis announced that he would be joining DC after an impressive 18-year run with Marvel Comics. A few months later, we learned that Bendis would be taking over writing responsibilities for Action Comics and Superman.

Mel V.’s Variants of the Week for 6/20/18

What Up CHU? Mel V. here With Your Variants of the Week for 6/20/18 Last week was a weird week for variants ..even though I had a full list of books, I missed some sweet gems like the Mattina Suicide Squad, as well as the Jenny Frison Wonder Woman, and The Weatherman from Image (which is doing great in the aftermarket and from what I hear was pretty hard to find in certain areas). The big winner was a book my buddy Matt Devoe had warned me about and I originally did not listen to, but I’m glad I did, The Marvel Rising #1 Lee variant is now a $100 book, but forget about the flipping side, it was actually a great read and had some FANTASTIC Interior art by Georges Duarte. Lets get into this weeks offerings. It’s a pretty light week. Most of these books should be easy to find in your travels tomorrow.


Aquaman Vol 6 #37 Cover B Variant Joshua Middleton – I’m gonna be honest here and I may get some heat for it but, I’m not totally in love with this Middleton. Maybe because I’m Middleton spoiled now. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good cover but something about it is throwing me off.


Batman Vol 3 #49 Cover B Variant Stanley Artgerm Lau Cover – This is a rare situation where limited Trade dressing will ADD to this already great looking cover.


Infinity Countdown Black Widow #1 Cover C Variant Bill Sienkiewicz Cover  – This must be a record I think for consecutive weeks Mr Sienkiewicz has been featured on the Variants of the Week.. another great cover. COVER OF THE WEEK for me


Taarna #2 Cover B Variant Chris Achilleos Cover– Still an Icon not just a cover but an image this is from the classic Heavy Metal movie.. I really need to check this series out more often, as Taarna was my favorite story from the film

Also there is a spoiler JSC cover for X-Men 30 .. that I won’t post here but congrats to the parties involved


X-Men Gold #30 Cover D Incentive Tyler Kirkham Colossus Variant Cover (Til Death Do Us Part Part 6) – Sweet cover. I’m getting it just for the look of it all, I dig whats going on. The JSC will be the winner when it comes to this particular issue though

Poyo’s Spec and Drek for June 20th, 2018

This week I really had a hard time picking DC and Marvel books.

I usually try to only make my picks based on the publishers small description and the cover art. I try to avoid any other rumors or spoilers, sometimes it’s just a given, other times it’s hard to avoid so they influence my picks. Lucky for me, this week I’ve been swamped with work so all my picks are based on the very little information I have or can see.

DC/Vertigo Pick

This weeks almost went to Cover A but you can’t pass up a Middleton cover that is already selling out online.

As much as I like Cover A though, the toss up pick goes to Aquaman #37 Cover B.

But kudos to Sejic for an awesome looking cover A. That’s a cover I might grab as well if I see one.

One would think retailers would have caught on by now and just start ordering more cover B’s over cover if it’s Middleton doing the cover. Seems shops are still iffy about ordering these if they’re not sure what the art looks like and don’t want to get stuck with the cover B they can’t move.

Marvel Pick

Infinity Countdown Black Widow #1. Everyone seems to be jumping on the Sienkiewicz and the Young Guns cover.

I’m picking the Putri cover, which is the regular cover. It just stands out more to me and I like Putri’s style.

I would pick the Young Guns variant next on the list, then Sienkiewicz‘s cover. I like his work most of the time but this one is not his best in my opinion.

It’s my other pick because the door is being shut on too man years at the steering wheel. Here’s to hoping Dan doesn’t ruin too much of the Amazing Spider-Man universe in his final issue where Nick Spencer has to go clean it up in the next volume.

But this weeks other Marvel pick goes to Amazing Spider-Man #801.

Goodbye Dan! It’s just too bad they didn’t ship him off to DC or something but I’m sure DC knows better. I guess they already took Bendis with his sappy soap opera drama he’s so good at writing.

Indie Pick

I’m with Anthony, I usually like or check out a lot of AfterShock comics (and no, they don’t pay me to say nice things about them but if they are willing, I’m open to negotiations). They do fill in the indie void (even though they’re borderline of being a small publisher as they grow).

This weeks pick goes to Lost City Explorers #1. I really liked Kaplan’s work on Eclipse and Port of Earth (Both Image Books).

The cover kind of gives me that 80s Stranger Things gang of kids vibe with a twist of Goonies. Probably with less alternate dimensions though, so more Goonies adventures going by the description.

Lost cities aren’t just the stuff of myths. They exist hidden right under our noses. But when a mysterious expedition is disrupted by supernatural activity, and an antiquities professor goes missing, his teenage daughter and her friends must become underground urban explorers, follow his tracks on a coming-of-age journey through subterranean tunnels, and ultimately find the holy grail of lost city: Atlantis buried right under New York City!

Already sold out at a bunch of online retailers. Probably best to grab a copy if you see one. Could be a surprise flip but I’m not counting on it. If it does, will be temporary and short as the jump in price will be from those that couldn’t find them locally.

Small Publisher Pick

I got the pleasure of reading this next book in advance so I’ve been looking foward to this one as well.

The small publisher pick goes to Shanghai Red #1 out from Image.

Red is one of hundreds shanghaied out of Portland in the late 1800s. Drugged, kidnapped, and sold to a ship’s captain, she wakes up on a boat headed out to sea for years, unable to escape or even reveal who she truly is. Now she’s coming back in a boat covered in blood to find her family and track down the men responsible for stealing her life out from under her.

Could be a surprise hit. I’m a sucker for revenge stories myself.


Now on with the dreaded “avoid” pick, every writer and artist worst nightmare when it comes to selling their hard work.

This weeks drek is just too obvious, I bet I could not say anything and most of you all will know what I’m going to tell you to avoid right?

Iron Man: Tony Stark.

Yes, I don’t think I need to explain at this point. Just skip it for several reasons but if you do pick it up, just pick the cover you like best and be done with it.

Gamestop Is Meeting With Companies For Potential Buyout

Gamestop has confirmed via press release that it is indeed in talks for a potential buyout. The retailer has been struggling in recent years and reported a loss of over $100 million dollars last year. It is becoming increasingly more difficult for the company to stay relevant in the world of digital downloads, and streaming services for Sony’s Playstation 4, and soon to be for Microsoft’s Xbox One.

An excerpt from the release follows below.

“There can be no assurance any agreement will result from these discussions. GameStop does not intend to make any additional comments regarding these discussions unless and until it is appropriate to do so.”

RELATED – Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Roster Reveal, Game Hits This December

With Gamestop being on the decline, the potential buyers must be getting a great deal to acquire Gamestop. Talk of the potential sale did raise Gamestop’s stocks 11 percent yesterday. With the profits loss last year, I am not sure why a company would be interested in buying Gamestop, but perhaps that is why I am not a venture capitalist

While I haven’t been an avid gamer for some time, I do remember the trips to Gamestop, trading in several games for about $2 each to put toward the purchase of a new game. I am surprised the comapny survived as long as it did off of that model, as trade-ins are said to be what kept the company going.

Comic Picks of the Week for Delivery 6/20/18

Each Week Hundreds of new comics hit the shelves, each with potential. Some live up to that potential. We pick the ones we think have the best shot at heating up. Here are our picks of the week for delivery 6/20/18:

Returning Favorites
Black Hammer Age Of Doom #3 – Still one of my favorite superheros books. Shooting for the Michael Cho variant on this.

Delta 13 #2 – Awesome space based horror book. First issue was awesome.

Deadly Class #35 – Shooting for the Daniel Warren Johnson Cover love the art, and the Misfits shirt.

Gideon Falls #4 – Fantastic, unnerving horror book.

Moonshine #11 – Noir-ish Mobsters and Monsters. This book does not disappoint.

For the Cover
Batman #49 Artgerm Cover – I do love Artgerm, and even though there were some naysayers on this cover, I am still grabbing it for my personal collection.

Batwoman #16 Michael Cho Cover – I love Cho’s artwork, Michael Cho that is, well I like Frank’s as well. But I digress. I love this pop-art style cover.

 

 

Green Lanterns #49 Warren Louw Cover – I think Louw’s art is under rated. He has a fantastic style, enough so I would buy a book without caring to read it. For me, the cover of the week.

 

 

 

 

Notable Mention
Amazing Spider-Man #801 – Long before I got burned out on Marvel’s constant reboots, I was a long time ASM Collector. I have a great collection with issues going down in the teens. Last legacy number book before they relaunch again… Sigh… But also Dan Slott’s last issue.

The Media Tie In
Rick And Morty Presents Krombopulous Michael #1 – Another series I have no problems selling. Rick and Morty has it’s fan base and they do pick up comics.

Image Number 1
Shanghai Red #1 – Think Chan Wook Park’s Revenge Trilogy on a boat. I do love a good revenge tale. Image #1’s can be hit or miss. I hope this one sneaks up on people.

For the Flip
Trumps Titans vs Dark Donalds Mental #1 – Will be checking eBay prices on this before picking up, however, I have done really well with Trump related comics and this spoof of Dark Nights Metal is funny. A bunch of variants on it.

Small Press Pick of the Week
Lost City Explorers #1 – While I know a lot of Aftershock books do not do well on the secondary market, the are excellent readers and worth the money. Here is another must grab for me.

Pick of the Week
X-Men Gold #30 J Scott Campbell Classified Polybag – The spoilers are out but we will run them tonight as well. This one will be the one to get.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Director Peyton Reed on Having the Freedom to Tell His Own Story

There is an idea that some people have about the Marvel Cinematic Universe: that the Marvel Formula doesn’t give the writers or directors any creative freedom. One would think at this point, so late in game, that there would be even less. According to director Peyton Reed to Collider, while they did have to deal with the fallout from Captain America: Civil War, they were given some freedom aside from that.

As I said, we definitely had to deal with the ramifications post Civil War. That was crucial to Scott. And crucial to Hope. I mean it really is like fundamental in the jumping off point about what’s going on between the two of them at the start of this movie. Outside of that, what I’m really happy about is, we’re free to tell sort of our free-standing story. Once we establish that as the leaping off point, this thing is going on over here with huge personal stakes and huge other stakes that are really separate of what’s going on with Infinity War. So that again is something that was really, really, appealing to me. We have enough stuff to track in this movie without having to sort of keep up with the rest of what’s going on with that.

There are so many Marvel movies right now that there is going to be a lot of overlap when it comes to shooting. For Reed and Ant-Man and The Wasp they were shooting during the latter half of the year-long shoot for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4. Reed knew it was going to be a challenge, but it was one everyone involved was prepared for.

Scheduling wise, you know, it’s a challenge, but it’s a challenge we knew was going to be there. It’s made easier obviously by the fact that we’re all down here on this Pinewood campus, all working together. So there’s, you know, behind the scenes shuffling and scheduling stuff but so far, it hasn’t impacted us. I know in October there’s some big dates coming up for Paul but so far, it’s been fine. So far, I have not felt the impact of the other movie.

Reed went on to say that working alongside a bigger production and coming out after an Avengers movie again means the Ant-Man movies are in a little corner to themselves.

You know, for the first movie, we came out in the wake of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was, you know – that was the sequel to Avengers! It’s Age of Ultron! So we could kind of be working in this little corner, and it feels the same way again because now we’re coming out right after Infinity War. And again, I like that. I personally feel that’s the position I want to be in. I mean, it’s good.

The Ant-Man movies seem to be those that Marvel turns to when they want to remind us that not all of these movies focus on the end of the world. They can have smaller stakes, be more personal, but still work as a larger part of this universe. Sometimes it’s important to scale everything down — pun intended.

Summary: As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.

Ant-Man and The Wasp, directed by Peyton Reed, stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Hannah John-Kamen, Michael Douglas, and Michael Peña. It will be released on July 6th.

Robert Kirkman Settles For An Animated Invincible Show At Amazon

It was previously announced that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were making a live-action film.

Robert Kirkman's Invincible ran 144 issues without so much as a movie or television adaptation. Not for a lack of trying though, while Kirkman usually creates an adaption alongside the comic. As recently as February of this year Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg were attached to a helm a major motion picture adaptation of Invincible.

Now it's announced that Amazon has handed out a straight-to-series order for an animated series that will initially run eight episodes. The "adult animated" series is by Kirkman's Skybound, with Simon Racioppa (Teen Titans) set as showrunner. This is Kirkman's first project under his overall deal with Amazon Studios after breaking ranks with AMC.

Amazon's animated series and Rogen/Goldberg's live-action movie are both being produced concurrently.

Netflix’s Season 4 Of Lucifer To Be Split Into Two Parts

Netflix's Season 4 Of Lucifer To Be Split Into Two Parts

Production is looking to start in August.

Source: TV Line

Netflix saved Lucifer from cancellation following Fox's lack of renewal for a fourth season. The new season will consist of ten episodes, not counting the two episodes already produced for a presumed Fox-fourth season. While half the episode count of previous seasons of Lucifer, each episode will still run around 43 minutes.

Production originally planned on having a Fox-helmed Season 4 split into two parts so having a half-episode count works with their plans. Co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich told TV Line:

We were going to have two parts to it anyway, so we'll just tell a really strong, gnarly first part," Modrovich enthuses. Doing so, says Henderson, "lets us concentrate the story and focus it, and that's what's really exciting about this. We have a really strong first half that is now going to make for an amazing story."

Season 4 of Lucifer is set to start filming in August.

Ant-Man and The Wasp: Marvel Producer Calls Ghost “Awesome” and “Badass”

Ant-Man and The Wasp is right around the corner, and the marketing has done a very good job of hiding the villain. We don’t know that much about Ghost, played by Hannah John-Kamen. This is a character that has been race and gender bent, and executive producer Stephen Broussard told Screen Rant that the power set is very classic while assuring that the character is awesome and badass.

“The power set is the same and the look is actually pretty classic, you know, not reinterpretation, but like modernization I think. Our visual design team…does a great job I think of sticking to the classic tropes that made these — what they looked like in the books. Actually going ‘Huh, that’s a pretty good realization of what that might look like in the real world’ and certainly that’s the case with Ghost. When you think of Ghost, you think of the hood. You think of the white suit and everything like that and Hannah wears it very well. She’s awesome. She’s really, really badass.”

It’s awesome that they really tried to keep the power set classic despite changing up the character. The effects in all of the trailers and TV spots look really cool.

Summary: As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.

Ant-Man and The Wasp, directed by Peyton Reed, stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Hannah John-Kamen, Michael Douglas, and Michael Peña. It will be released on July 6th.

Marvel’s Luke Cage Season 1, Episode 9 Recap: DWYCK

This article contains spoilers for the Marvel’s Luke Cage season 1 episode 9, ‘DWYCK’.

.

.

.

.

.

DWYCK

The episode starts with Misty Knight (Simone Missick) in an interrogation room talking to Dr. Gabe Krasner (John Scurti), a former cop turned psychiatrist, trying to find out why Misty got physical while questioning Claire Temple (Rosario Dawson). It’s voluntary, but she won’t go back on the street until the inspector gets a satisfactory answers. Krasner asks if it was losing her gun to a suspect, him threatening her, or if it was Luke Cage (Mike Colter). She doesn’t answer that.

We cut to Luke, who wakes in the back of the trash truck with two gun shot wounds and smelling like trash. He gets out and smells himself then says “Sweet Christmas.” We cut to the club where things are going back to normal with Hernan “Shades” Alvarez (Theo Rossi) looking over things. But his new crew hasn’t found Luke yet, and that upsets Willis “Diamondback” Stryker (Erik LaRay Harvey), who arrives to check in. He shoots one of the guys to prove a point — that they should be out looking harder. Diamondback then chastises Shades for how he handled things and how Cottonmouth is now dead. He asks Shades for one reason why he shouldn’t shoot him, and it’s Zip (Jaiden Kaine) who answers, “it won’t help find Luke Cage any faster,” which keeps Shades alive. But Diamondback makes it clear that Luke isn’t dead until they find the body. Luke ducks into a laundry mat and takes a new shirt and hoodie and sees that he’s wanted for killing Cottonmouth.

We go back to Misty as Krasner pushes her to talk about dating and how the last guy she hooked up with wasn’t who she though he was. Krasner compares that to her former partner, Scarfe, being on the take.

Cut to Mariah Dillard (Alfre Woodard) talking to Cottonmouth’s body about how he came to Mama Mabel and how she took care of him. Shades arrives and tells her Diamondback is there to collect — that he’s not happy Cottonmouth is dead and that Luke is still alive. He tells Mariah she’s the face of the business now and she has to do the right things to show stability or there will be chaos on the streets — and for her.

Cut to a cop car pulling up on Luke, seeing how he’s walking and thinking he’s a drunk. The cops see that he’s Luke and pull their weapons. He disarms one but the other opens fire. He shields the first cop from the shots then takes out the other, leaving them both alive on the sidewalk. He takes their car.

Back with Misty, we get the story of a time she was with her cousin when they were young. Misty left her alone long enough to get a lemonade from a bodega, and the cousin was gone when she got back. Her cousin was found dead two weeks later. This led her to become a cop — and a good one. But she never went for a promotion; she just stayed in Harlem. Kasner pushes to find out if she’s dirty like Scarfe, but then calls her on it, upsetting her that she didn’t see that Scarfe was crooked and it led to her going renegade with Luke and being aggressive with Claire. Misty says she needs a break.

Mariah goes to see Domingo Colon (Jacob Vargas) and tells him she has a proposition for all the heads of the crews. She wants him to pull them together for a meeting that night. Claire is at her mom’s restaurant doing research into Luke’s cells and looking at Reva’s computer drive, figuring out it has something to do with Seagate and Dr. Burnstein. Luke shows up and his wound is getting infected. He wants nothing to do with Burnstein, but Claire tells him he may have no choice. The footage of Luke and the cops hits the internet, and Mariah’s assistant urges her to use it to her advantage.

Back with Misty, she finally starts talking about how Diamondback took control and how she thought the was going to die. When Claire was mouthing off, Misty just wanted to take control back. She realizes what she did was wrong, and it seems like this was where Krasner wanted her to go. We then see that Ridley (Karen Pittman) had been watching all along.

Luke isn’t doing well as he and Claire drive out of the city to go see Burnstein (Michael Kostroff). He tells Claire that Diamondback was his best friend growing up and that he thinks he’s Luke’s brother, but Luke believes that’s a lie. They get to Burnstein’s house, who wants nothing to do with Seagate until Claire mentions Carl Lucas and that he’s alive and in the car. Burnstein helps her bring Luke in the house. There he gets a brief idea of what’s going on but he lost all of his research. Then Claire gives him Reva’s computer drive and he is able to unlock it. The drive has all of his research and more.

Luke is getting worse and they take him out to the barn, where Burnstein has a new lab. He tells Luke that even though Reva begged him to do the procedure on Luke, he was already earmarked for the program because of his strength. Claire shows him how to get a blood sample from inside Luke’s throat since they can’t pierce his skin. Back to the precinct and Ridley is now sitting with Misty. She’s not happy, but she gives her back her gun and badge so she can bring Luke in.

Mariah and Shades go to the meeting at Domingo’s gym with the four other bosses and they are surprised when Diamondback comes in and kills the four other bosses for not buying from him. He leaves Domingo alive, though, to keep running the drug trade. He then asks Mariah why he should be her friend. Mariah tells him because Luke Cage can be used to make a lot of money. She says that Diamondback should go “Big Pharma” with this — create the disease and then the cure. Go big in killing Luke and then everyone will come to him to take out the rest of the “freaks” that are popping up everywhere. Diamondback likes it, and he tells Mariah she’ll be the one brokering the deals until he says she’s done. He then goes to get a steak.

Burnstein gets most of the information he needs from the drive except for temperature. His plan is to put Luke into boiling acid until they get to the right temperature that weakens his skin enough to cut it and get the bullets out, but he could also just melt all of his skin off deep-frying him like a turkey. He’s done it before with animals, he says. Before they start, Luke tells Claire that if something goes wrong, make sure that Burnstein doesn’t keep Reva’s data, even if she has to kill him. Cardiac arrest warnings go off, but it’s not working… he puts up his fist to tell Claire to get him out, then we cut to black.

The Verdict

The episode is long at an hour and six minutes, while the others are closer to 50 minutes. The scenes with Misty give her more backstory and strengthen her character even more. The more we learn about Diamondback, the crazier he seems. But Shades trying to groom Mariah is fascinating to watch. It looks like even Shades can’t control Diamondback, though. Burnstein is an interesting character in that he seems to genuinely care about people but also gets lost in the science. The relationship between Claire and Luke is coming along nicely and naturally — something most shows can’t seem to pull off. This one is letting them find their balance on their own and not rushing it. The look on Luke’s face when Burnstein talks about dunking him in boiling acid is priceless. The episode was long, but most of it was necessary.

Taylor Sheridan Already Has a Sicario 3 Planned Out

We haven’t seen Sicario: Day of the Soldado yet, but director Stefano Sollima confirmed to Screen Rant that writer Taylor Sheridan has already planned out a third entry in the series.

“We were so thrilled that people responded to the first one and we felt justified in making a second because we loved it. (Laughs) We probably are the biggest fans of the movie. And we feel that way again. Obviously, even more than the first one, we kind of leave off a little teaser at the end. Yeah. And we would love to kind of see, you know, this was always in the back of Taylor’s mind, and we loved it, and we thought, God, it would be great if we could get there. I think we’d like to do that now. I certainly feel like the second one lived up to the expectations.”

An earlier post confirmed that they would want to bring Emily Blunt back for the third entry in the series.

Summary: The drug war on the US-Mexico border has escalated as the cartels have begun trafficking terrorists across the US border. To fight the war, federal agent Matt Graver re-teams with the mercurial Alejandro.

Sicario: Day of the Soldado, directed by Stefano Sollima, stars Josh Brolin, Isabela Moner, Benicio Del Toro, Matthew Modine, and Jeffrey Donovan. It will be released June 29th.

Lee said of the news:

“I am deeply grateful to everyone at Walt Disney Animation Studios and The Walt Disney Company for this opportunity. Animation is the most collaborative art form in the world, and it is with the partnership of my fellow filmmakers, artists, and innovators that we look ahead to the future. My hope is to support the incredible talent we have, find new voices, and work together to tell original stories. The great films of Disney Animation – the films I loved as a kid and my daughter has grown up loving – are magical, timeless, and full of heart, and it is our goal to create films that carry on and grow this 95-year legacy for future generations.”

Docter said:

““I am excited and humbled to be asked to take on this role. It is not something I take lightly; making films at Pixar has been my chronic obsession since I started here 28 years ago. I am fortunate to work alongside some of the most talented people on the planet, and together we will keep pushing animation in new directions, using the latest technology to tell stories we hope will surprise and delight audiences around the world.”

According to a recent statement, Lee and Docter will have “responsibility for the creative oversight of all films and associated projects of their respective studios” and will be reporting directly to The Walt Disney Studios Chairman, Alan Horn.

Horn said of the appointments:

“Jennifer Lee and Pete Docter are two of the most gifted filmmakers and storytellers I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Pete, the genius creative force behind Up, Inside Out, and Monsters, Inc., has been an integral part of Pixar almost since the beginning and is a huge part of its industry-leading success. Jenn, in bringing her bold vision to the boundary-breaking Frozen, has helped infuse Disney Animation with a new and exciting perspective. Each of them embodies the unique spirit, culture, and values of these renowned animation studios, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have them to lead us into the future.”

We have one that is exclusive to Fandango and one exclusive to Real 3D. The Fandango one, with Scott and Hope ant-sized with popcorn, is the fun kind of marketing that this movie has been leaning into.
