The Stand coming to the big screen?

Posted on 01 February 2011 by TH3 No08

It looks like Stephen Kings (IMO) best work is finally gonna get the Hollywood treatment it’s fans have always clamored for. Hollywood Reporter is reporting that the book will make its way to the big screen via a Warner Bros. and CBS Films co-production. What’s yet to be seen is the size and scope of the story to be told. Stephen King’s “The Stand” is a monster of a book that could probably be turned into a 24 episode tv series. There are a ton of characters that come and go as well as major story arcs that just couldn’t be told in even a trilogy of

Remembering Wizard Magazine

Posted on 25 January 2011 by Christian

To many of us, Wizard Magazine nurtured the geek in us all. A salute to the great fan mag.

Well today the web lit up with the news that long time geek magazine, Wizard, was closing publication immediately. Some website state that sister magazine, Toyfare, will still be around while other rumors swirl that Toyfare will suffer the same fate as Wizard. Personally, I took this as pretty damn depressing news since I’ve been reading both publications since the fourth grade, but I’m also surprised that Wizard has lasted as long as it has seeing how the ever growing internet had definitely weakened the magazine, seeing how we all have plenty of websites to go to for our toy and comic news.

I think it’s safe to say that I wouldn’t be the fan that I am today without Wizard Magazine. As a kid, I had a small interest in comics but really lived for action figures and had built up a pretty massive collection of any superhero toy I could find. Then one day my dad brought home an issue of Toyfare, figuring an action figure fanatic like me would like it. I haven’t missed an issue since.

Soon I found out that Toyfare had an sister mag called Wizard, and I soon picked up an issue of that. As a kid, Wizard didn’t interest me as much because it didn’t have the sweet toys like Toyfare, but as I got older and my interest in toys faded, I started liking Wizard more and more.

I had a few comic books but didn’t even begin to know how to collect them, which ones to read, what monthly series were the best, etc. Wizard gave me a great jumping off point by introducing me to creators like Frank Miller, Jeph Loeb, Chris Claremont, etc. If Wizard praised a certain graphic novel or storyline I would immediately run out and read it. In no time I had built up a massive store of geek knowledge, I became a sort of go to guy for my friends if they needed any geek knowledge. I could always count on Wizard to recommend what series to check out and for the latest news on my real love: comic book movies.

I ended up graduating high school and went off to college and sadly didn’t have the time or money to keep with with comics, so Wizard became my life line into what was happening in DC or Marvel. It kept me a fan during a very busy and hectic four years and I could always depend on it for a good scoop or a good laugh. Now as I look back, I can see how much Wizard evolved, from a publication dedicated to strictly comics to a magazine dedicated to all facets of geek culture. In whatever form, I always looked forward to picking it up every month to see what was happening in the world of comics

But as Captain Kirk said in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,”But it should be noted that this death takes place in the shadow of new life”.

All is not lost as Wizard will continue as a online publication, and as we all know, death in comic books never lasts. Perhaps one day, we will see Wizard make a surprise comeback on comic book shelves everywhere.

We had the great pleasure here at The Noob News to interview Gareb Shamus, the creator and CEO of Wizard, while we were covering Wizard World’s Austin Comic Con. Check it out here:

Wicked new Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows poster inside

Posted on 18 January 2011 by TH3 No08

This from the guys over at Geek Tyrant, an awesome take on the forthcoming sequel to HP and the DH. This thing oozes doom and gloom while being covered in artistic badassery. It does a great job of capturing the darkness and sadness that runs throughout the final book in the series that the part one of the movie was never able to capture.

Red State trailer hits the interwebz…

Posted on 23 December 2010 by TH3 No08

Kevin Smith hates the press but apparently loves the interwebz cause that’s where he dropped an early teaser for his latest flick “RED STATE”. We’ve discussed on the podcast over the last few months our general feelings regarding this film and his approach to distribution and marketing of it and this trailer doesn’t really change any feelings I have for what he’s trying to do. Smith lists the Weinsteins in the credits (Harvey Boys) so I’m assuming he’s got distribution so we may not be treated to the public spectacle of a post screening auction like he promised but as long as it gets out there I guess that’s really all that matters. The trailer looks interesting, lots of action, creepy looking small town folk, and lots of random gun fire.

Teaser Poster For Dylan Dog Movie; Dead Of Night Hits

Posted on 17 December 2010 by Christian

Check out this Italian poster for the upcoming Brandon Routh horror/comedy..

I like this poster, the trailer for the movie? Not so much. It does have a certain Buffy like charm to it and I like Routh but I dunno about this one.

In New Orleans, Dylan Dog is an ace detective whose specialty is paranormal cases. Now, he must deal with vampires, werewolves, zombies and a guardian of the Hell, due to a client’s case. With the help of Marcus Adams, his un-dead assistant, he will have to preserve the sake of the Earth.

Dead Of Night is directed by Kevin Monroe and hits theatres in Italy next March but doesn’t currently have a theatrical release date Stateside..or anywhere else for that matter.

It’s True Grit review time @ thenoobnews…

Posted on 17 December 2010 by TH3 No08

It’s hard for me to review a Coen brothers movie and not hold them to a higher standard than I hold most other film makers. It’s not fair to them that I consider their body of work up to this point the most well produced, expertly written, and superbly directed collection of films I have ever seen.
