It was announced today that Image comics, the house of Spawn and The Walking Dead, will create their very own comic book convention: Image Expo to launch in February of 2012…the company that shook the comic book industry is at it again.
Back in 1992, 7 comic book creators Todd McFarlane, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silvestri, Erik Larsen, Jim Valentino and Whilce Portacio left Marvel Comics in an ongoing dispute over creator controls and royalties. Thus Image Comics was created and went on to creat characters such as Spawn, The Maxx, Savage Dragon and The Walking Dead. Image Comics succeeded in shaking up the Comic Book industry and opening it up for independent companies to thrive. Now, Image is at it again. The company just announced that they will be launching their own Comic Book/Creator convention in California to launch in February 2012. With the recent success of The Walking Dead as one of cable television’s highest rated shows and the up coming movie projects for Spawn and Youngblood, image seems to be capitalizing on the growing business of conventions around the country. Will this then limit the big guns (McFarlane, Kirkman) from appearing at other conventions. Will Image now hold their major announcements for their own convention? Does anybody really care?

The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively revealed SyFy’s plans for a small screen adaptation of Booster Gold. The network has reportedly ordered a pilot script for what will be a one-hour drama from Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg. Greg Berlanti’s production company will oversee the project in association with Warner Horizon Television.

Instead of chasing criminals, however, his main priority is chasing fame and money. But Booster Gold discovers that being a hero takes more than just a megawatt smile, and that the future doesn
So I am not a huge Twilight fan or part of Team Jacob or Team Edward, I am just an innocent by stander in this little craze.. So when I got the invite for the press screening I wasn’t jumping out of my seat to RSVP… As I sat there watching the trailer for the first time, I thought to myself, Someone near and dear to my heart is a Twilight fan and may just indeed enjoy going to see this film before its released.. So I contacted my Mom, which is something I sometimes neglect to do, and asked if she would be interested in going…. Her reply was as follows “Are you joking OF COURSE I WOULD LOVE TO!”, So I told her that she would have to write a review that I could post on the site. The following is my Mom’s Review of Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 1.. Enjoy…

With the news that Dark Knight Rising’s trailer would be hitting theaters in December it got a lot of people wondering what other trailers we would see attached to the big holiday movies and it looks like we may see the first trailer for The Hobbit attached to a December release. According to IGN.com Andy Serkis who plays Gollum in the upcoming Hobbit films recently gave an interview and spoke regarding when we could see a trailer.
There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe. It’s just around the corner.
If I was a betting man I would imagine you would see it attached to Peter Jackson’s next film “The Adventures of TinTin” which hits theaters on December 21, 2011.
John Carter is a film that has been passed around from studio to studio for awhile now and it finally looks like Disney is going to be the one to get it onto the big screen. It looks pretty epic mixing sci-fi with swords and sorcery almost like Tron meets Conan. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
We get our first look at the full length trailer today and I’m still a bit torn on how I feel about this film. It seems very derivative of The Japanese film Battle Royale from just a cursory glance. I don’t know much about the back story but I’ll do my best to go into in with an open mind.
Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match.
Michael J. Fox recently performed a re enactment of the rock classic Johnny B. Goode from the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance scene in Back to the Future to raise money for Parkinson’s research. It’s not the first time he has done this as a few years back he performed the same song with The Who at the same event but it’s still pretty cool to see him out there putting on a show and bringing back some great memories.
Over the years Adam Sandler has made 2 different types of movies, movies that make money and movies that don’t make money. It should come as no surprise to you that the amount of money that an Adam Sandler movie makes is directly proportional to how awful the movie is for the people watching it. So terrible movie = lots of money, great movie = no box office business. Check out this cool infographic from ScreenJunkies.com that gives you an inside look at what movies have made Adam Sandler money and why he keeps making bad ones.
Some games are works of wonder and beauty, and playing them reaffirms our humanity. When life is hard and stressful, those games make us forget our worries and allow us to relax, giving us a rejuvenating boost that allows us to face another day.
These are not those games. These games make our urge to kill rise just a little bit each time until we prove critics right about video games causing violence by hunting down the level designer and throttling him. Instead, though, we have to stifle those murderous urges, especially since we’re more likely to take them out on our poor controller.
Today I’m chronicling eight games that made us want to destroy our controllers, from the old-school difficulty of the NES all the way to the modern era. The mere mention of these games, and certain levels within, will send gaming veterans into fits of PTSD. For every pleasant gaming memory, there is also one of these:
Ridley Scott confirmed with the Wall Street Journal Blog Speakeasy that he will indeed be returning to the scene of one of his most beloved sci-fi films, Blade Runner. I’m not a huge fan of the film but I can certainly appreciate what it meant to a generation of sci-fi fans as well as the huge impact it has had on so many films. The challenge now is whether they can recapture that magic and live up to the hype and scrutiny that will surely come.
It’s pretty awesome to be able to get an inside look into Peter Jackson’s world of production on his latest film. He’s really allowed a level of access that is rarely seen on a movie of this scale. In the latest production diary we get an in depth look at what goes into creating an epic 3D film. From what I’ve seen and heard regarding the use of 3D in this film I would expect this to blow away any previous films that have attempted to harness this process. That means you Avatar…
