Image
Industrial Light & Magic has released a new visual effect video from their stunning work on Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Head behind the scenes and see how the film was brought to life.
"We are pleased to share a sample of the visual effects work created for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The history of ILM leads all the way back to 1975 and origins of Star Wars and The Force Awakens gave us the opportunity to once again push the boundaries of what is possible in character animation and visual effects while combining cutting edge practical effects and physical sets. ILM studios in San Francisco, Singapore, Vancouver and London each contributed to the film effects as did our partners Hybride, Base FX and Virtuos." Enjoy.

Image
"Blackest Night" is a fan favorite DC Comics storyline that brings together all the heroes of the DC universe and would be amazing to see on screen as a live action project.

Using footage from various DC television shows and films they have brought the story to life.

"Black Power Rings start going across the universe and the dead begin to rise from their graves. They have memories and feed on the emotions of the living. The lantern corps must put aside their differences in order to combat the undead." Enjoy.

Game of Thrones tribute video to The Night's Watch shows they are the true heroes of Westeros.

Image
Perhaps some of the bravest men on the hit HBO show Game of Thrones are the men of the Night's Watch. These brothers in black are the last line of defense protecting Westeros from enemies such as the Wildlings, White Walkers, and whatever else lurks beyond the great Wall.

To honor these men, YouTube channel "The Garo Studios" have created a stunning tribute video for the Night's Watch, the true heroes of Westeros.
"Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come."  Winter has come.

Joe Manganiello is confirmed to play Deathstroke in Ben Affleck's Batman film.

Image
Ben Affleck recently shared a set video of Deathstroke in full gear and it excited fans everywhere. However, there was no information to go with it. Until now.

DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns has revealed to the Wall Street Journal that actor Joe Manganiello (True Blood) will be playing Deathstroke in the next Batman film and that it was Manganiello in the video wearing the full gear.
"DC Entertainment president and chief creative officer Geoff Johns confirmed the casting in his first interview discussing his new role overseeing Warner Bros.’ movies based on DC Comics characters." Now that we have confirmation that Deathstroke is in the next Batman film and that actor Joe Manganiello will be playing him, how does everyone feel about this? I think that he definitely has the out of costume look for the character but I am wondering if he is as agile as the character needs to be in both speed and combat style. Maybe they'll have a stunt dou…

New live action Metroid fan film will make you wish Nintendo would make it into a feature film.

Image
It's always exciting when Nintendo's Metroid franchise gets love and when you watch this amazing fan film you can see that there is a lot of love for the series here.

Metroid is being played by cosplayer "Pigtails and Power Tools Cosplay" and both of her Samus cosplays here are perfect. Created by "Ideas for Hollywood", the effects are well done and this makes me wish there was a live action Metroid film in production. This is one franchise that would be incredible on the big screen.  Take note, Nintendo!

Brilliant Star Wars fan film TK-436: A Stormtrooper Story dives into the life of a loyal Imperial Stormtrooper.

Image
Throughout the Star Wars franchise stormtroopers have always seemed like a faceless foot soldier (until Finn came around in Star Wars: The Force Awakens). You never really take notice of their individuality because there is none.

However, this fan film titled "TK-436: A Stormtrooper Story" turns all that around and makes you feel for one trooper in particular. It was created by Samtubia and Samgoma Edwards and it won the Filmmaker’s Select award at this year’s Star Wars Celebration Europe event from a panel of judges that included Rouge One: A Star Wars Story's director Gareth Edwards, executive producer John Knoll of Industrial Light & Magic, and co-producer John Swartz.
"UnBoxed Films presents, TK-436: A Stormtrooper Story, the gritty tale of a loyal Imperial Stormtrooper who is forced to confront his past in the heat of an epic battle. It is directors Samtubia & Samgoma Edwards. It is imagined from a perspective that is seldom explored within the Star Wa…

Fun trailer reveals that Stan Lee is a Watcher in the Marvel film universe.

Image
Stan Lee is known for his work with Marvel Comics but fans have also come to love his creative cameos in the various Marvel films. His cameo roles range from random bystanders to portraying Hugh Hefner. But what if these roles were a part of something larger. What if Stan Lee was in fact a Watcher in the Marvel universe?
"The Watchers are a vastly powerful, ancient extraterrestrial race who untold eons ago undertook the task of passively observing the phenomena of the universe." This fantastic trailer takes a look at Stan Lee as a Watcher in the Marvel universe and I for one support this theory.

The vampire Death Dealer Selene is back in the first trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars.

Image
The Vampire Death Dealer Selene is back as the next chapter in the Underworld franchise is set to hit theaters. Actress Kate Beckinsale returns as Selene in the first trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars and this time it's all or nothing. The trailer is packed with all out action and looks incredible! The film is being directed by Anna Foerster (Criminal Minds, Outlander)

Film synopsis:
"Underworld: Blood Wars follows Vampire death dealer, Selene (Beckinsale) as she fends off brutal attacks from both the Lycan clan and the Vampire faction that betrayed her. With her only allies, David (James) and his father Thomas (Dance), she must stop the eternal war between Lycans and Vampires, even if it means she has to make the ultimate sacrifice."
I absolutely love this franchise and am so excited that it is returning. From the start this vampire vs lycan story and mythology has been extremely fascinating and this next chapter looks like it will be a wild ride.

Nintendo announces Super Mario Run at today's Apple conference.

Image
Apple held a special conference today and during that conference chief game designer at Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto came out to announce a new game for iOS; Super Mario Run! The game works similar to other "run" games but this time instead of swiping the screen to change direction or lanes you tap the screen to make Mario jump. The longer you hold the tap the higher Mario will jump as he run through classic Mario levels. Throughout the levels there will also be special blocks that will change Mario's direction or pace. There is also a battle mode where you can compete against friends and other gamers around the world.

The new app will be released for iOS this holiday season. Although it is not ready at the moment, Miyamoto told Kotaku that Super Mario Run will be released for Android in the future.

April may seem far away, and it is, but it is nice to finally have a specific month rather than just knowing the show will premiere at some time in 2017.

First official image of Ghost Rider is released for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..

Image
Fans can now take their first look at the character Ghost Rider, aka Robbie Reyes, from the show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. who is bring played by actor Gabriel Luna. Talking about the character to Entertainment Weekly, executive producer Jed Whedon stated;
"“As always, we are going to put our own spin on the character. We are staying true to the comics in the places where we feel like it’s really important — we love the character’s family dynamic and the East L.A. kid in him.”  Whedon then goes on to talk about how the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown to allow them to bring in a character like Ghost Rider.
"“It started out with a guy building a suit using science, and then we met aliens that are the origin of the myths behind some of our gods, and this year Doctor Strange comes out. We’re opening it up even further to the world of things we don’t totally understand, or as Thor says, ‘Magic is science that we don’t understand.’ Well, we’re getting into some very, very fancy…

First images of Shocker appear from the set of Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Image
Spider-Man: Homecoming has been filming for a few months and now the first images of the character Shocker have appeared from set. Shocker, aka Herman Schultz, is being played by actor Bokeem Woodbine(Fargo).  It'll be interesting to see if this is an early version of Shocker's suit and it'll be upgraded in the film. Either way, I love that they are bringing a fresh, new villain in for Spidey to fight.
