Ghostbusters Re-Release

Got a free Thursday in October? Because if you do, you should run to your nearest theater and check out Ghostbusters on the bigscreen. That’s right, the original Ghostbusters is getting a theatrical re-release on Thursdays during the month of October. Ghostbusters is truly one of the greatest movies of all time. Everything about the movie is pitch perfect. For those of us tha never got to see this on the bigscreen this is going to be an amazing experience. Check out the recut trailer below. It’s got the soundtrack from Inception played behind the film clips and it is awesome!

History of Visual Effects

Presented here is a very cool 20 minute piece on the history of VFX. There are some really neat moments in this. Well worth a watch.

Who was that masked man?

That’s Andrew Garfield. He’s playing Peter Parker/Spider-Man in Sony’s upcoming remake. This video shows him to be the perfect choice to pull this off.

Iron Fist and Dr. Strange to get new series?

Marvel comics are currently knee deep in their summer crossover, Fear Itself.  In this story an ancient Asgardian god has awoken and sent hammers, much like Thor’s only slightly bigger, to some A, B and, C/D list characters turning them into walking embodiments of Asgardian baddies.

Over the last few days Marvel have released a teaser image entitled, The Mighty showing, presumably, Marvel characters that will be getting Asgardian weapons of their own to combat The Worthy.

Now by my count we have got Ms. Marvel, Iron Fist, Dr. Strange, Iron Ma, Wolverine, Valkyrie, SpiderWoman, Hawkeye, and SpiderMan in this teaser.  So, pretty typical event fare and it should make for a decent read.  But, according to press releases for Comic Con, Marvel will be announcing some new projects.  Teaser images have leaked for two of them and while I am honestly excited about the possibilities of these two characters getting their own books, I really like the design of  the images as well.  I’m a sucker for typefont images, what can I say.

Obviously we are looking at Iron Fist and Dr. Strange.  Two characters who deserve their own titles but have only been able to sustain limited runs before.  However, the recent Iron Fist started by Brubaker/Fraction with art by Aja was brilliant and was carried nicely by Duane Swierczynski after they left.  It really is a phenomenal book that everyone should check out.  Strange on the other hand has really only done well in minis as of late, the best being The Oath written by Brian K Vaughn with art by Marcos Martin.  If you haven’t checked that out you should, it’s great.

Hopefully Marvel can out together some solid creative teams and get these characters the books they deserve.  With movies for both being rumored, I’m sure Marvel want a good product to get those carryover sales.

Evil Dead!

According to Bruce Campbell’s twitter account, @Groovy Bruce, there is a new Evil Dead film on the way. Sources online call for this to be a remake of the original Evil Dead film with Federico Alvarez behind the camera. Alvarez is most well known for his short film, Panic Attack!, and seems to be an ideal choice. I’m very curious about this film as Evil Dead and its sequels are some of my very favorite films. As long as Bruce Campbell is involved I am all in!

Check out Panic Attack! below to see Alvarez operating on a shoestring budget much like Raimi did with the original Evil Dead.

Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1

So a little while ago this really cool Mortal Kombat thing hit the internet and people went crazy for it.  No one knew what it was or where it came from.  Fast forward to today and the first episode of the web exclusive Mortal Kombat series is live.  It’s awesome.  Watch the hell out of this and show some support.

Animated Shaun of the Dead!

Submitted for the 60 second animation contest, Shaun of the Dead is re-done in the style of Scott Pilgrim.  Super awesome and truly faithful to both sources.

Full Green Lantern costume.

In a word, yuck.  You can see his toes.  YOU CAN SEE HIS FUCKING TOES!  Are you shitting me?  Why?  It’s a goddamn superhero movie I don’t need reality.  What I need is a Green Lantern whose toes are not visible.  You know what I never thought about and you didn’t either, exactly what Kilowog’s toes looked like.  AND NOW IT’S ALL YOU CAN THINK ABOUT!  Jesus Christ bananas.

Teenage Mutant Duckemon?

An awesome mashup is submitted for your approval.  Rock!

Lego Ghostbusters! Tattoo!
