The World of Comic Books Are Being Embrace for Television/Movie Screens

cbooks banner

I’m sure you all know that I’ve been a big fan of The Walking Dead and The Flash (whose season finale you can FINALLY watch my reaction to by the way) since those series first premiered years ago.

What do I do now that those seasons are over other than patiently wait for the Fall and what will undoubtedly be an epic-4 day crossover of The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl?! Go trawling the internet for speculation on the next big comics or graphic novel-to-screen premiere, obviously.

While I wait to see if the rumors about Brian K. Vaughn’s Y:The Last Man making it to TV pan out, which would be amazing, I may have to start on Robert Kirkman’s OUTCAST which premiered last week on CineMax. It’s an American horror drama television series based on the comics of the same name, and yes, Outcast is created by the very same Kirkman that brought us The Walking Dead.

Are you guys watching it? What do you think? If you were to pick next popular series based off a comic or graphic novel, what would it be? Would love to hear your thoughts!

[MOVIES] Ghostbusters Reboot Will Go BIG With All Female Casts in 2016

ghostbusters going big in 2016

That’s right, there’s going to be a new Ghostbusters movie in 2016. The 1984 cult classic starring Dan Ackroyd, Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver still has a large following today – many celebrating its anniversary in the same way as classics like the Big Lebowski and Pulp Fiction.

While the news of the new Ghostbusters film dropped last year, with the Cinema Blend being one of the first news outlets to break the story, it’s only now that fans are beginning to get excited by the prospect of the new movie.

ghostbusters-2016Although, not everything is as we would expect with the new release. As Cinema Blend documented, the new movie will feature an all-female cast. However, while this presents a significant shift from the 1984 original, Ackroyd seems excited by the prospect of a new and vibrant cast including Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig. Ackroyd had the following to say:

“The Aykroyd family is delighted by this inheritance of the Ghostbusters torch by these most magnificent women in comedy. My great grandfather, Dr. Sam Aykroyd, the original Ghostbuster, was a man who empowered women in his day and this is a beautiful development in the legacy of our family business.”

The Sony Pictures production will be directed by the acclaimed Fletcher Moules, who was responsible for the extremely popular Clash of Clans advertisements, among other notable projects. Helping out Moules, will be the co-creator of Ghostbusters, Ivan Reitman according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film will be released in July, and as Variety reported, the industry is expecting Ghostbusters to be one of the biggest grossing films of 2016 alongside many of the DC and Marvel releases due this year. With marketing efforts already in full flow, merchandise has started popping up everywhere. From original t-shirts, posters and video games, to leading brands such as Gala Bingo , who have started running Ghostbuster slot games to tap into the popularity of the brand in the lead-up to the release.

With a fledgling cast, and director at the helm of this reboot, the film also has its naysayers. What can we expect? It’s unclear until we finally get to see this unique take on the 1984 classic. In the meantime, watch the official trailer here:

MOVIES: Announced Title for Sequel for Guardians of The Galaxy

Guardians-of-the-Galaxy-HD-Picture-Wallpaper



Star-Lord_Dialogue_1It’s out! The title for the second Guardians of The Galaxy movie will be VOL.2. I truly love the concept of naming it like a mixtape series. I get it, since StarLord’s mother made him two mixtapes that he cherishes deeply. Director James Gunn announced via his twitter account the name of the sequel, which left fans to believe he was joking. James Gunn tweets again, he’s serious! Chris Pratt has also been mentioning on Twitter that the sequel is very emotional and you’ll get to know more on the fathers. Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2 is set to release May 5 2017!!!

Dante Luna is at it again with another dope documentary based off everyone’s favorite SUPER HEROES!! You get to see iconic characters from passed shows, such as ZORDON from Power Rangers, Jason from the original Power Ranger, The Voice of Ash Ketchum, and so many others. I feel this documentary really embraces what a super hero represents. Fascinating! Enjoy the video and don’t forget to subscribe to Dante Luna’s YOUTUBE CHANNEL.

“Responsibilities of a (super)hero” documentary is a discussion about the active roles of the Heroes in everyday life. The 2014 Rhode Island Comic Con featured entertainment figures from movies, television, comics and cartoons. Fans come from all over the area to meet and interact with the stars that they mostly support from home. In a series of interviews, both guest & entertainers were asked to talk about their favorite heroes. Super or Not. Heroes with super powers and heroes with only the power of influence. Some described heroics in the form of kind gestures, while others spoke about of fictional characters that they looked up to. . .

Movie Trailer: The Interview with Seth Rogen and James Franco

theinterview

Just saw the teaser trailer with this iconic duo Seth Rogen and James Franco with this fall THE INTERVIEW. The people who brought you NEIGHBORS & THIS IS THE END are bringing you a crazy concept and bringing it to life. The trailer shows that Seth and James are apart of a celebrity tabloid television show that becomes very popular. So popular that Kim Jong-un is a huge fan of the show. Seth and James thought it would be great to have Kim Jong-un on the show. Once the CIA finds out their intentions they decided to contact them and request that they will assassinate the dictator. Will the guys succeed with their mission? This movie looks hilarious and there’s even explosions! THE INTERVIEW is set to be released on October 10, 2014. Can’t wait!

Movie Trailer: Transformers – Age of Extinction

transformers


Just love how they were able to bring back Transformers. By adding new cast member Mark Wahlberg. Mark is a mechanic who brings antiques to life. Who would of thought the one day he brings back a truck and it ends up being Optimus Prime himself!! Unfortunately, the world is no longer welcoming their kind. But once they find out about the remaining one, little do they find out that there’s more to come! Can’t wait till this movie comes out on June 27!

Movie Review: THOR – The Dark World

photo 1

photo 2
Monday Night, I was invited to attend an advance screening of Marvel’s THOR The Dark World. What an amazing experience. When we entered the private screening on all our chairs we has 2 comic book issues (EPIC). Also received a mini gift package too! THOR Wrist Sweatband, FreeLoki T-Shirt, and 2 THOR Lightning Fighting Sticks.

The Dark World is the sequence to THOR’s story. They recommend you to follow a marathon to see the stories sequence, THOR – Avengers – THOR (The Dark World). I highly recommend you do this before watching THOR this friday for it’s World Release. You can watch these via Netflix. This movie makes a bunch of references back to previous movies. A nice refresher would be to watch these right before you watch the film!

photo 3It’s been two years since THOR departed from Earth. Taking Loki (Tom Hiddleston) back to Asgard under arrest, after Loki’s attempt in destroying it. During these years THOR has been fighting to keep the peace with-in the nine realms, before he can become King. After maintaining some peace they return back to Asgard after winning a battle. When Heimdall tells THOR he is not able to locate Foster on Earth, THOR begins a search for her. He finds her in an abandoned factory where she was lost for 5 hours. Darcy (Kat Dennings) couldn’t find her either, she even called the cops. During that time she was in another realm. When Jane is put in some type of danger her body releases a powerful energy. Sensing the force’s unearthly nature, THOR brings Foster to Asgard, but its physicians cannot remove what has entered her. Little do they know, what will come after…Malekith (Christopher Eccleston).

I find the chemistry between THOR (Chris Hemsworth) and Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) exhilarating. Considering the long distance relationship there’s obviously a bit of tension, but once they do see each other you can feel their attraction towards one another. Throughout the movie you can tell they’re willing to do whatever it takes to keep the other one safe.

Another chemistry I found amazing was between THOR and Loki. Once Loki is brought on to the team.. he has these one liners that kept making the audience laugh. He always had something to say and it was always funny. Can THOR trust Loki? You gotta see this movie Friday to find out.

Movie Trailer: This is The End

END-A-1SHT-jpg_201841

June 12th Sony Pictures releases This is The End! The world is coming to an end and here’s what our favorite comedians will do to survive. Starring Seth Rogen, James Franco, and many other talented actors. James Franco decides to throw a huge party to celebrate the end the year. Little does everyone know the world is ending! Each actor/actress is acting as themselves during the movie. I think this is a great twist to the story.

I read the article from June/July 2013 issue of Complex Magazine they had with both Seth and James on the main cover and interviewed. They are a hilarious duo. Besides working together on they’re popular film Pineapple Express, Freaks and Geeks, they are also friends as well. Great interview by Foster Kamer.

Don’t forget to take a look at THIS IS THE END in movie theaters on June 12th!

Movie Trailer: Man of Steel – “Fate of Your Planet”

man_of_steel___tdkr_poster_by_dreed_06-d62drue


MAN OF STEEL: FATE OF YOUR PLANET
The beginning of the trailer looks like a signal is being transmitted through. A chilling voice is announcing an upcoming event. The message that is played is that we’re not alone. Visuals are in different languages. Applying to everyone who watches. General Zod (Michael Shannon) is in search for Kal El. Earth has 24 hours to turn him in or the planet will suffer the consequences. This movie looks amazing! Superman is played by Henry Cavill. Can’t wait to watch this when it releases this summer on June 14th. The graphics are intense!
