Amazing, action packed trailer for Space Pirate: Captain Harlock! [video]

Image
I just came across this amazing trailer for Space Pirate: Captain Harlock and I was blown away. I admit that I am not too familiar with Captain Harlock but this upcoming CG movie may change that.

This film is being adapted from the 1978 Japanese manga series by Leiji Matsumoto. The series has since been turned into a television anime series and has had several features and a sequel. The script for Space Pirate: Captain Harlock was written by Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC novels, live-action Bokoku no Aegis)  and was directed by Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed). The film will reflect on the themes of modern society.

The film will follow Captain Harlock as he fights for humanity against an alien race looking to reclaim Earth. Harlock is not alone however. He fights with his crew members aboard the invincible space battleship, Arcadia.

Space Pirate: Captain Harlock will be released in Japan this fall. At the moment there is no word on a Western release here in the US.

Zachery Quinto finds out if New Yorkers care that he's Spock on Funny or Die! [video]

Most people would say that New Yorkers are jaded when it comes to celebrity sightings and this hilarious video would only support that theory. Funny or Die's Billy Eichner took actor Zackery Quinto (StarTrek, Heroes) around the streets of New York to see what kind of reaction people would get to seeing "Spock" in real life. In order to do this, he asked one very simple question as Zachery followed him around, "It's Spock! Do you care?" Surprisingly, not many people did. You would think after being on a hit show and movie that the guy would get a little recognition. Check out the funny video below!

Stunning movie poster for The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker!

Image
This gorgeous poster has been floating around for a little while now but in light of recent news I thought it would be a great time to share it. (Nintendo just announced that it plans to update The Wind Waker and release it in full HD on the Wii U in 2013!)

A dedicated artist has created an actual "movie poster" for the video game The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and has it for sale on his Etsy shop. The print is about $33 (plus shipping) and would look outstanding on a Zelda fan's wall.

You have to love the amount of detail that has gone into this poster. It gives The Wind Waker a slightly darker tone and I love that about it. Since the game is cell shaded with bright vibrant colors, it is usually portrayed as a "happy" game. However, in this poster, Link is guided through the rough seas by the bright, full moon and the search light atop of a lonely tower during the dark of night. This poster is stunning, detailed, and yet remains simple. Beautifully done.

So…

SONY announces big press conference that could reveal the PS4! [video]

Image
It has been announced that on February 20th that SONY will be holding a big press conference for "the future of the Playstation". What does that mean? Well, most are thinking that we could get a glimpse at, or at least info on, the new Playstation 4.

There is no definite word on what this press conference will be about and the teaser trailer that SONY has released for it doesn't give any info at all (only the date). But why make a big deal about it if it wasn't for something big?

If this is an announcement of the PS4, what gamers should really be looking for is if there will be any big changes from the PS3 in design or functionality.

What do you think could be announced on February 20th?

Optimus Prime - The Road Warrior!

Image
Artist Marco D’Alfonso has created a whole new profession for Optimus Prime, "The Road Warrior". Optimus looks completely badass in this piece of art and I'd love to see him in action! This piece was created for comicbookresources.com's weekly theme "Post-Apocalyptic Comic Book Characters." I think it came out perfectly and could see him in the movie Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior!

Brainiac attacks Metropolis in the new Superman: Unbound trailer! [video]

Image
Superman is back in more ways than one with the release of DC Entertainment's newest animated movie Superman: Unbound!  released the first trailer for DC Entertainment's new animated movie Superman: Unbound. This newest animated movie will be based on the 2008 Brainiac comic storyline by Geoff Johns. The voice acting cast is comprised of Matt Bomer (White Collar) as Clark Kent/Superman, Stana Katic (Castle) as Lois Lane, Molly Quinn (Castle) as Supergirl, and John Noble (Fringe) as Brainiac.

DC Entertainment has had great success with their animated movies and usually stays true to the source material, so I am very excited to see this movie when it comes out later this year.

Amazing (and sexy) lightsaber battle - Mr and Mrs Sith! [video]

Image
Check out this amazing lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and Darth Talon! There's no doubt that the people behind this project, Defcon Unlimited Stuntteam, know what they are doing. The video is amazing and the battle sequence is a lot of fun to watch. Also, a lightsaber battle has never been so sexy! Possibly too sexy for Disney.

Marvel has just released an all new poster for the upcoming Iron Man 3 and from the looks of it, it really sets the tone of the movie.

Harry Potter star, David Bradley, cast as William Hartnell in Doctor Who's 'An Adventure in Space and Time'!

Image
Doctor Who is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year and the BBC has big plans to celebrate all year long leading up to the actual anniversary in November.

One of the exciting specials that the BBC has been planning is a dramatized 'documentary' on how Doctor Who first got started in 1963 called An Adventure in Space and Time. The writing mind behind this special is Mark Gatiss (Doctor Who writer and lifelong fan).  

The big announcement about this special however is that the BBC have announced who they have cast to play the original Doctor, William Hartnell! This was definitely not an easy cast but after what could have only been a long, in depth process the BBC have announced that they have hired actor David Bradley to take the role. Doctor Who fans will recognize Bradley from the Season 7 episode Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, but the rest of the world, especially Harry Potter fans, may recognize him as Argus Filch from the Harry Potter franchise.

Looking at Bradley and Hartn…

Star Wars meets Star Trek in this 'Star Wars Into Darkness' mash-up trailer! [video]

Image
In light of J.J. Abrams being chosen to direct the next Star Wars film, British film critic Ross Thomson has created a mash-up trailer that combines video footage and audio clips from the original Star Wars trilogy to the musical score and art direction of the Star Trek Into Darkness trailer from J.J. Abrams. This new trailer has been named "Star Wars Into Darkness" and gives fans a look at the kind of feel that Star Wars could have now that it is being directed by Abrams. 

This trailer was brilliantly cut and is extremely fun to watch. Though I have to admit, it didn't make me more excited for Abram's future Star Wars films as much as it made me really want to re-watch the original trilogy. Let me know what you think of the trailer in the comments!

First official image of Lois Lane is released for Man of Steel!

Image
Fans can now take a look at the first official photo released of Amy Adams as Lois Lane in Man of Steel!

Not a lot can be determined about the movie from this photo but we get to see Lois running around the office with a fancy iPad. This at least lets us know that Lois will be a modern reporter in a modern day office.

What do you think of the photo? Think you'll like Amy Adams as Lois Lane?

Nicolas Cage becomes Superman in newly found "Superman Lives" photos!

Image
There has been a lot of information popping up recently about a Superman movie that Tim Burton wanted to create called SupermanLives.  Up until now, the photos that have surfaced have all been very ... odd. Yet now we get a glimpse of actor Nicolas Cage in a Superman suit that looks like it could have worked. The appearance of this suit has a striking similarity to the Batsuit that Batman wore in Tim Burton's Batman with the same kind of muscle tone to the chest and stomach but at the same time has its differences as well (looking at the arms and legs). Do you think that you would have accepted Nicolas Cage as Superman? What do you think of the suit? And what kind of Superman film do you think Tim Burton would have created?

Why Batman Is Secretly Terrible for Gotham! [video]

Fans have debated the usefulness of Batman to Gotham for a long time but I believe that this video perfectly captures the debate. The gang over at Cracked did a brilliant job arguing both sides of the debate and bringing up legitimate point to support them. And the friend more worried about finding out which of his friends has Aspergers cracked me up.

Watch the debate and see which side of the argument you agree with after hearing out both sides.

Travel down the rabbit hole in NBC's Alice sequel 'Wonderland'!

Image
If NBC gets its way, they will have fans traveling down the rabbit hole to Wonderland once again. NBC is in the works on a pilot based off of Lewis Carrol's Alice In Wonderland and will call the show Wonderland. Well now NBC has revealed the concept of the show in order to entice fans. Brought to us by Executive Producer Anthony Zuiker (CSI), this show will have quite an interesting twist and will be a sequel of sorts.  "Wonderland is set in modern times and centers on Alice and a new character, Clara. Seven years ago, Clara’s life took an unexplained turn for the worse, and a mysterious stranger tells her there may be an explanation after all… an explanation that lies in the fantastical world of Wonderland. To revive her dreams and get her life back on track, Clara must wage war against Wonderland’s reigning Queen, the woman we once knew as Alice." What do you think of this concept? It certainly comes to no surprise to me that networks are looking to cash in on the cur…

Nintendo's Kirby takes on the abilities of The Avengers and becomes the Kirby Avengers!

Image
Kirby is back and it looks like he is taking on the Marvel Universe and The Avengers! Kirby's most known power from his games with Nintendo is the power to inhale and swallow his enemies and them spit them out while gaining their featured ability. Now it seems that artist Paabloo has pitted Kirby up against the Avengers team and using this power has copied the abilities of the Avengers team. Below you can see get drawings of "Iron Kirby", "Kirby America". "Kirby Fury", and "Kirby Hulk".

Which Kirby drawing do you think would be the best character? Which is your favorite?

Superhero Boot Camp - Stretching with Catwoman! [video]

Image
Fans dream about what it would be like to be the superheroes (or villains) that they idolize. Although, most often they have to accept that dreaming is as far as they'll get. But not anymore. A great new series titled "Super Hero Bootcamp" will teach you how to do all the amazing things that your comic heroes do. What makes it even better is that it is the heroes (and villains) themselves that will be teaching you!

In this first episode Liz Katz, as Catwoman, will teach you how to stretch and limber up. Once the initial introduction passes (and you've picked picked up your jaw off the floor), Liz teaches a legitimate yoga/stretching routine. It may be presented in quite a sexy manner, but still, it's presented. Next week's episode sounds cool and is about self defense techniques and binding escapes.

A very Sexy/ Limber Catwoman goes through Some Yoga Poses and a stretching routine for you!
