Two New Trailers For 'The Wolverine'

Based on the celebrated comic book arc, this epic action-adventure takes Wolverine (Hugh Jackman), the most iconic character of the X-Men universe, to modern-day Japan. Out of his depth in an unknown world, he will face a host of unexpected and deadly opponents in a life-or-death battle that will leave him forever changed. Vulnerable for the first time and pushed to his physical and emotional limits, he confronts not only lethal samurai steel but also his inner struggle against his own immortality.
'The Wolverine' is out in cinemas July 16 (UK) and July 26 (US).



New 'International' Trailer For 'Kick-Ass 2'

'Kick-Ass 2' is out in cinemas August 16.

Review: 'OZ: The Great And Powerful'

When Oscar Diggs, a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot-fame and fortune are his for the taking-that is until he meets three witches, Theodora, Evanora and Glinda, who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity-and even a bit of wizardry-Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.
Whenever I go to see a film at the cinema, or watch a film for the first time, that was based on a book, which I might have read, or if it's one of the many sequels, prequels, reboots or reimaginings that are getting churned out of Hollywood these days, I always put any preconceptions behind me and forget about any previous incarnations and just see the film as a standalone. It was the same when I went to see 'OZ: The Great And Powerful'. Yes, most people will remember fondly the 1939 Judy Garland musical, and will compare the two films, but at least these days, I think it's best not to judge a film in this way, especially when they are very different.

I fairly enjoyed it. Sam Raimi's interpretation of Oz, was more like Army Of Darkness with a hint of Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland, both films I've enjoyed (critics be damned!). From the opening scenes in the full frame black and white, which paralleled the opening for the 1939 film, to the full colour widescreen world of Oz, full of witches, munchkins, flying monkeys and of course the Emerald City, Raimi's Oz is definitely a brightly coloured fantasy that pays homage to the original, and if you're a fan of the original film you may be able to spot a few nods towards it too. If you're a fan of Sam Raimi's films, look out for the obligatory cameo from Bruce Campbell too!

I saw it spellbinding 3D, and I would definitely recommend splashing out and seeing it in that format. There are few movies that have done the 3D this well, and it definitely gives you the sense of actually being in Oz!

There are 15 books in the Oz series written L Frank Baum, so there should be plenty of material to mine for future films.

If you're looking for a fun, entertaining fantasy film, I'd recommend going to see this.

Limited Run: Mondo's Modern Classic

Check out this three part look at Mondo and the awesome prints that they release.

As a paramount fixture in an emerging movement and subculture, Mondo is breaking new ground with classic films. To some, a movie poster exists purely as a piece of marketing and as a picture on a video box. Justin Ishmael and his team strive for more. Encapsulating the magic of each film, Mondo is responsible for bringing limited edition screen prints to loyal fans around the world.

Set to the backdrop of the Summer of 1982 series at the Alamo Drafthouse, episode one of this three part series focuses not only on one of Mondo's most ambitious projects to date but explores the story behind one of the most iconic film posters in the history of science fiction: John Carpenter's 1982 classic The Thing. With interviews from the Mondo staff, Alamo Drafthouse founder Tim League, legendary artist Drew Struzan and John Carpenter himself, fans of cinema and of Mondo are granted unprecedented access to a truly unique print.

Part One:

Commemorative Doctor Who Stamps Released

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the world’s longest running science fiction series, Royal Mail have released Doctor Who stamps at 9,000 Post Office Branches (UK only) and online from www.royalmail.com/doctorwho globally.

The stamps were recently launched at an event in London, with former Doctors Tom Baker, Peter Davison and Paul McGann in attendance.


See a gallery of pictures from the Doctor Who stamp launch here.

The eleven stamps, all at 1st Class value, feature each of the actors who have played the role of the Time Lord over the last 50 years. In addition to the eleven stamps featuring the Doctors, a five-stamp miniature sheet is also available, featuring a TARDIS and some of the Doctor’s most famous foes; a Dalek, a Cyberman, an Ood and a Weeping Angel. See the Doctor Who stamp designs here.

Royal Mail is also creating unique postmarks in each of the home towns of all the actors to have played the Eleven Doctors. This means that all stamped mail sent from Matt Smith’s home town of Northampton, will have a special postmark celebrating 50 years of Doctor Who with the name of the actor on it.

Andrew Hammond, Managing Director, Stamps and Collectibles at Royal Mail, said: “Following our launch announcement last year, we’ve had a fantastic response from the public who seemingly can’t wait for the stamps. This shows just how much we all love Doctor Who”

Fiona Eastwood, Product Development Director, BBC Worldwide Consumer Products said: “With the second part to the latest Doctor Who series out very soon, these stamps are the perfect way to mark this as well as the 50th anniversary.”

New 'John Carter (Of Mars)' Fan Trailer

Check out this fan made trailer by Back To Barsoom on how the debut trailer for John Carter of Mars should have been like, take note Disney, if it properly setup the importance Edgar Rice Burroughs and how he inspired George Lucas to create Star Wars and James Cameron to create Avatar. In fact, the original Superman could only take huge leaps like John Carter.

In my opinion, it's yet another fan-made trailer that is much better than any the official trailers - and not a white ape in sight!

Review: 'Neverwhere' BBC Audio Drama

Beneath the streets of London there is another London. A subterranean labyrinth of sewers and abandoned tube stations. A somewhere that is Neverwhere. 
An act of kindness sees Richard Mayhew catapulted from his ordinary life into a subterranean world under the streets of London. Stopping to help an injured girl on a London street, Richard is thrust from his workaday existence into the strange world of London Below.

I've been really getting into audiobooks and audio dramas lately, mostly listening to them on my work commute. From the free audio books from the public domain by Librivox, and unabridged adaptations of some of my favourite books, to the old BBC dramatisations of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings, and of course not forgetting the classic NPR broadcasts of the original Star Wars trilogy. So when it was first announced that the BBC were going to do a six part adaptation of Neil Gaiman's 'Neverwhere' (one of my favourite Neil Gaiman books) I was really looking forward to hearing it.


With a cast list that includes James McAvoy (Richard Mayhew), Natalie Dormer (Door), David Harewood (Marquis De Carabas), Sophie Okonedo (Hunter), Anthony Head (Mr Croup), David Schofield (Mr Vandemar), Benedict Cumberbatch (The Angel Islington), Bernard Cribbins (Old Bailey), George Harris (The Abbot Of The Black Friars) and Christopher Lee (The Earl Of Earl's Court) and produced by Dirk Maggs, who wrote and directed the 2003 'The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy' radio series, the potential for a quality adaptation was there. It's safe to say I wasn't disappointed!

You are definitely drawn into Richard Mayhew's descent from his world of London Above to the realm of London Below. The acting is top notch, with a cast like they have I wouldn't have expected anything less, and it's well written too with not too much of the original story cut due to time restrictions, given that the whole radio play is just over three hours (I'd recommend the Neil Gaiman narrated audiobook for the complete experience, and the original six part 1996 BBC TV series isn't bad either).

Although the series has now concluded, the hour long first chapter is now available on iTunes and available as Drama Of The Week for this week only, and then part 2 will be available.

I really enjoyed listening to 'Neverwhere' and can certainly recommend this audio drama if you're a fan of Neil Gaiman and the original book. I hope they do more Sci-Fi, Fantasy audio dramas off the back of this adaptation!

As he says:
"I created this Star Wars Poster depicting the characters from the Original trilogy as they would appear in the new movie. Since there is no cast yet for the new movie I thought it would be cool to create a poster with some of my favorite characters from the Star Wars Universe. This illustration is 30X40 in. and was drawn and painted by hand."

Help Make Final Fantasy VII: The Web Series A Possiblity

The story so far; Over twelve months ago, a young Italian director by the name of Gionata Medeot; tired of waiting for Final Fantasy VII remakes and a decent telling of the tale, decided to team up with Mattia Ferraro, and bring together some of his friends and fellow FFVII fans together to discuss the possibility of making a movie adaptation of the much loved and best-selling videogame. The result was this cool trailer below.


With the positive reaction from the teaser, which was made with a team of consisting of under 20 people and cost $1,200 for just 2 minutes of footage, the idea of a movie was replaced by a 5-episode web series, so that the story could be explored in depth & detail.

Now, they need your help. With a Kickstarter campaign coming soon, they have a Red Bubble page where you can buy posters, shirts, hoodies, stickers, mugs, phone cases with more items to come, and all proceeds from these will go towards the cost of the production and promotion of the web series, so you’ll be directly contributing to the web series. Plus some of the designs will be chosen to appear in the episodes; so you could own a little piece of history, to wear everyday.

Keep up to date with the production of the Final Fantasy VII web series via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Check out some of the designs below.

Cool Art: Rafael Grampá Facebook Commmissions

Cheers to Larry Fire at The Fire Wire blog with bringing this to my attention. On March 6th Rafael Grampá opened his first commission list to his Facebook followers  allowing 10 lucky people to choose their favorite super hero/heroes for Grampá to illustrate in his distinct style.

The drawings were inked over pencils on 11×17 strathmore paper, and the cost of each piece depended on how many figures Rafael drew. A full body, single figure cost $1,000, two characters $1,800 and three characters $2,400. As Grampá doesn’t sell any of his original work, those 10 spots were snapped up pretty quickly.

You can check out two of those commissions below.
