Comcast gives Netflix the Finger, Demands cash

Posted on 30 November 2010 by mjones

“Screw You!” says Comcast to Netflix over a piddling pile of Pennies. “We demand cash, or we’ll slow down or stop your streaming videos. Net-Neutrality be damned!”

“But this is robbery!”, said the puppy-eyed and awfully cute Netflix. “We’ll take you to the Fed court you big mean bullies!”

The big, evil, (and in bed with NBC through their proprietary streaming service) Rampaging Comcast-Beast, hunched its evil shoulders and said, “Nay you will lose! This is merely a business disagreement, and hath nothing to do with freedom of information.”

And Lo, the battle raged… but few people realized how important of a battle it was.

Could we be seeing Heath Ledger as The Joker one more time in The Dark Knight Rises? According to Showbizspy it is very possible.

Superhero Copyrights: Jack Kirby Estate Can Go Forward With Legal Battle Against Marvel

Posted on 30 November 2010 by Christian

While DC/Warners attempts to retain the copyright to Superman from the Siegel and Shuster estates, Marvel/Disney, it’s been ruled by a federal judge, will have a similar battle with the estate of Jack Kirby regarding a variety of heroes.

Details The Hollywood Reporter, “A New York federal judge has weighed in on an important case that could be worth billions of dollars and impact the future of Iron Man, X-Men, The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, and other iconic super-hero characters. The case involves the ongoing attempt by the estate of comic book artist Jack Kirby to terminate a copyright grant over his legendary work. After Kirby’s children served 45 notices of copyright termination, Marvel Entertainment sued the estate in New York District Court, seeking a declaration that the creations were ‘works-made-for-hire’ and not eligible for termination. The estate countersued, seeking its own declaration that the termination notices were served properly to Marvel. Last week, New York federal judge Colleen McMahon rejected a bid by Marvel to throw out the Kirby estate’s main counterclaim. The judge decided it wasn’t a ‘redundant’ claim, meaning she will soon have an opportunity to shake up Marvel’s universe, if she so decides, with a potentially devastating future ruling.

“In sum, the judge has narrowed the case to its most crucial issue. Both sides disagree about Kirby’s working environment in the 1950s and 1960s when he, along with Stan Lee, conceived many of Marvel’s most popular characters. The judge will soon be tasked with looking at Kirby’s work history and some of the loose contracts and oral agreements that guided his efforts in those years.”

Eliza Dushku Returning to Television

Posted on 30 November 2010 by Christian

Having spent plenty of time in the sci/fantasy/horror genre via Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Tru Calling, and Dollhouse, Deadline is reporting that Eliza Dushku is ready to try something a little more down to earth in the TNT pilot, Bird Dog.

Describes Deadline, “Bird Dog is a mystery fashioned around an unlikely partnership of two cops who happen to be father and daughter. It centers on Gail McGrath (Dushku), who followed in her father’s footsteps in becoming a police officer but had little else in common with him. She left the big city she had grown up in to move to a small Pacific Northwestern town where she was patrolling the streets until her dad, a NYC cop, showed up on her front doorstep to join her as her new partner. Now this father-daughter team, call sign ‘Bird Dog,’ is being put to the test — not only in solving crimes, but with each other.”

Will We See A Brand New Suit In the Spider-Man Reboot?

Posted on 30 November 2010 by Christian

We all know that the suit in the first trilogy was great translated to the big screen, but what about the upcoming reboot? Are we going to see a very different costume than what we’ve seen before? Make the jump to find out!

Filming for the new Spider-Man film is starting very soon, and for now we know most of the cast and who are they going to play. But what about the iconic suit? In Sam Raimi’s trilogy, the costume was made very well, and they showed a great respect to the character creators.

Now, according to Showbiz Spy, it looks like that we will see a different, high tech suit in the 3D reboot:

“Andrew has been through numerous fittings for the suit which is a very high-tech design“, reveals a movie insider.

This could be very interesting and it doesn’t mean that they will change the look of the costume at all, but it brings some questions in what kind of direction are they going.

Marc Webb is directing the untitled reboot, with Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Martin Sheen, Sally Field and Denis Leary starring in the upcoming adaptation.

Film is set to hit theatres on July 3, 2012.

So, what do you think of this? Just like I said, this doesn’t mean that they will change the whole suit, so keep that in mind. Put your thoughts below!

Fox Sues Woman For Distributing Deadpool Script

Posted on 30 November 2010 by Christian

They actually went and did it! Fox studious are now taking steps to sue a middle aged mother for 15 million. Click for the details.

I’m sure you all remember the Deapool script leak a couple of months ago. We reviewed it here at CBM, as did many other sites. Although we didn’t actually reprint or post any excerpts from the script, and gave it a glowing review, I was contacted by Fox’s legal team and asked..well, told to remove it in a pretty unfriendly manner. Well, now the same legal team are taking action against flower saleswoman and aspiring screenwriter Patricia McIlvaine. McIlvaine apparently distributed, but did not leak, the Deadpool script along with up to 100 others online. Fox don’t seem interested in pursuing whoever leaked the script, just this woman who for all intents and purposes sent it around in an email.

From McIlvaine’s site..

Two strangers knocked on her door and informed her, in front of her children, 20th Century Fox was suing her for 15 million dollars. Two hours later, after grilling her with questions for two solid hours, they left her stunned and crying in her living room staring at a business card that stated they were

Tom Welling to Star in Teen Wolf Remake?

Posted on 30 November 2010 by Christian

Articlesbase.com is reporting that once Smallville wraps, Tom Welling will be starring in a remake of Michael J. Fox’s 1985 comedy, Teen Wolf.

One reason this rumor is suspect is that Teen Wolf is also the source of a new dramatic werewolf TV series coming from MTV. On the other hand, the story does make this point: “The said film, which was originally led by actor Michael J. Fox, showcases a high school student who discovers that his family has an odd heritage and eventually finds himself transforming into a werewolf. Released in 1985, the movie was directed by Rod Daniel, and was co-written by Jeph Loeb and Matthew Weisman. As for Welling

Kevin Smith Hopes to Hold Public Auction at Sundance for His Next Film

Posted on 29 November 2010 by Christian

Selling a film at Sundance is always a bit of a three-ring circus, and now Kevin Smith wants to make sure everyone’s invited to the show. Smith has announced that if the festival accepts his next film, the satirical horror movie Red State, he plans to sell the film in the room immediately after the first screening and may even bring in a professional auctioneer to make things more interesting. “And if you’re a multi-millionaire who can’t make it to the first screening of Red State, fear not,” Smith added. “Maybe we’ll set up an eBay page for the post-screening bid-calling as well.” [/Film]

‘Empire Strikes Back’ Director Irvin Kershner Dies

Posted on 29 November 2010 by Christian

‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ director Irvin Kershner has died in Los Angeles at age 87, the Agence France-Presse reports. Goddaughter Adriana Santini said Kershner had faced an illness for some time.

In addition to directing what many regard as the pinnacle of the ‘Star Wars’ saga, Kershner helmed ‘Never Say Never Again’ and ‘Robocop 2.’

The onetime George Lucas collaborator taught courses in film and photography at the University of Southern California. In an interview later in his life, Kershner spoke of teaching Lucas in the 1960s. “Even then, I could see that he was a very special student,” Kershner said. “Not that he had a great eye, but he had vision.”

Kershner was born in Philadelphia in 1923; he was a musician and photographer before delving into documentary and eventually feature filmmaking.
Reflecting on the 30-year legacy of ‘Empire Strikes Back’ in October, Kershner told Vanity Fair: “I think the critics felt that they were going to see an extension of ‘Star Wars.’ In other words, they wanted another ‘Star Wars.’ I decided that the potential was much greater than a rerun of ‘Star Wars.’ When I finally accepted the assignment, I knew that it was going to be a dark film, with more depth to the characters than in the first film. It took a few years for the critics to catch up with the film and to see it as a fairy tale rather than a comic book.”

Kershner also famously turned down ‘Return of the Jedi,’ telling VF, “After working for two years and nine months doing ‘Empire,’ and having it take so much out of my life and having given me so much, I felt that it was a complete experience and it was time to move on.”

One specific legacy of Kershner’s, embedded within ‘Empire Strikes Back,’ is Han Solo’s legendary “I know” response to Princess Leia’s “I love you.” The script called for Harrison Ford to reply with a simple “I love you, too,” but Kershner’s gut said otherwise.

“I shot the line and it just didn’t seem right for the character of Han Solo. We were into the lunch break and I said to Harrison try it again and just do whatever comes to mind. That is when Harrison said the line, ‘I know.’ After the take, I said to my assistant director, David Tomblin, ‘It’s a wrap,’” Kershner told Vanity Fair. “George [Lucas] saw the first cut and said, ‘Wait a minute, wait a minute. That’s not the line in the script.’ I said, ‘I love you, too was not Han Solo.’ Han Solo was a rebel. George felt that the audience would laugh. And I said, ‘That’s wonderful, he is probably going to his death for all they know.’”

Despite Lucas’ initial dismay at Kershner’s interpretation, audience tests proved the line a hit, and Kershner ultimately admits, “George was the best producer I ever worked with.”
