King Kong unleashed by StarWarp Concepts

17 minutes ago

Ahead of the Eighth Wonder of the World’s return to the big screen in next month’s Kong: Skull Island, StarWarp Concepts has announced the upcoming ebook reprint of the 1932 novelization of the original King Kong movie, which features six brand-new illustrations by pulp-comics artist Paul Tuma (Tales of the Green Hornet, Dan Turner: Hollywood Detective).

The novelization expands on the world inhabited by this famous monster of filmland and includes scenes that didn’t appear in the movie’s final cut, including the terrifying “spider pit” sequence in which a group of sailors in pursuit of Kong falls into a chasm infested with giant, man-eating arachnids.

In King Kong, Ann Darrow is a down-on-her-luck actress struggling to survive in Depression-era New York when she meets moviemaker Carl Denham. He offers her the starring role in his latest film: a documentary about a long-lost island—and the godlike »

After his small screen success with Fargo and Legion, Noah Hawley is certainly hot property at the moment, and Deadline is reporting that he has now set up two feature films at Fox Searchlight.

The project is based upon a spec script from Brian C. Brown and Elliott Diguiseppi.

In addition to Pale Blue Dot, Hawley is also developing a drama entitled Buried Bodies, which is inspired by the Lake Pleasant Bodies Case of the 1970s, where two attorneys were faced with an ethical dilemma of upholding attorney-client privilege after being informed by their client, an accused murderer, about the location of two missing bodies.

Shane Black shares first cast photo from The Predator

5 hours ago

With production on The Predator kicking off today, director Shane Black has taken to social media to share the first cast photo from the reboot, which sees Black joined by Sterling K. Brown (The People v. O.J. Simpson), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Boyd Holbrook (Logan), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele) and Jacob Tremblay (Room).

Black also reaffirmed that the film will be R-rated, because “PG-13 is for pussies”.

The Predator was initially described as a follow-up to the 1987 original (which saw Black co-starring as Hawkins), but last week Boyd Holbrook said that it is not a sequel, and Arnold Schwarzenegger is unlikely to make an appearance.

The Predator is set for a February 9th, 2018 release. »

Downsideup Games announce their homage to a timeless classic with Chuckie Egg 2017

6 hours ago

Those with an interest in retro games will be excited to know that Downsideup Games will be releasing a remake to the timeless classic 8 bit game, Chuckie Egg, with Chuckie Egg 2017 on iOS devices on 23rd February.

Chuckie Egg was a particular favourite of mine on the old Acorn Electron and earned a place in my book as the epitome of the perfect platformer (yes, I still have a physical copy of the game).

In the original you played Hen House Harry who had to run around the screen to collect 12 eggs from under the noses of the ostrich-like chickens.  Contact with the chickens resulted in losing a life.  There was no explanation or storyline for why you were taking these eggs but in Chuckie Egg 2017 we find Harry is no longer confined to the hen house and is now an intrepid adventurer who must collect 300 legendary golden eggs that »

Keanu Reeves would be open The Matrix 4, if the Wachowskis were directing

7 hours ago

Out and about on the promotional rounds for his hit action sequel John Wick: Chapter 2, Keanu Reeves has been chatting to Yahoo! Movies about whether he’d be open to reprising the role of Neo for a fourth Matrix movie.

“The Wachowskis would have to be involved,” said Reeves. “They would have to write it and direct it. And then we’d see what the story is, but yeah, I dunno, that’d be weird, but why not?”

Neo was of course killed at the conclusion of the third movie The Matrix Revolutions, but as Reeves went on to note, “People die, people in stories don’t.”

Would you like to see Reeves reuniting with the Wachowskis for a fourth Matrix film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below…

Finn Balor’s WWE return dates leaked? Injured WWE star returns at weekend show…

7 hours ago

WWE are pretty notorious about sending cease and desist letters to anyone even slightly encroaching on their intellectual property. The reason Cody Rhodes just goes by ‘Cody’ in all his post-wwe appearances is because WWE actually own the ‘Cody Rhodes’ name.

So global makeup brand Maybelline better watch out, after Sasha Banks exposed their ‘Lash Like A Boss’ campaign on Twitter below…

What the gimmick infringement is this @Maybelline ????? @JudgeJudy @DrPhil pic.twitter.com/b2306QGLWA

— notorious Sb (@SashaBanksWWE) February 19, 2017

Good that she copied in respected legal institutions Judge Judy and Doctor Phil there.

WWE has their big television shows Raw and Smackdown, but each brand also tours live events throughout the week that aren’t broadcast. They’re purely for those in attendance, and are thus called house shows. These are the perfect environments to work out storylines, try out new gimmicks and practice big spots before doing them on television or pay-per-view. »

The Fate of the Furious may have a 160-minute runtime

7 hours ago

Between the countless absurd action sequences, fist-pumping one-liners and monologues about family, you’d think each Fast & Furious film had a lengthy runtime, but such is not the case — at least not yet. According to European movie site Cinemarx, the upcoming eighth entry in the beloved franchise, The Fate of the Furious, will be the longest film yet.

While, of course, the runtime won’t be official until Universal Pictures confirms it themselves, reportedly The Fate of the Furious will clock in at a giant 160 minutes (two hours 40 minutes).

Over time, the Fast & Furious movies have generally been getting longer, while still remaining at a reasonable length, with the first four films in the series all running in the 100-minute range and the three more recent movies in the 130-minute range. In fact, Furious 7 was the previous title holder of longest in the series, coming in at 137 minutes. Despite this trend, »

Daniel Craig becomes the second-longest serving Bond

9 hours ago

We still don’t know if he’ll be picking up the Walther Ppk for another outing, but as of today Daniel Craig has officially became the second-longest serving James Bond, having spent 4,147 consecutive days in the role, leaving him second only to Roger Moore on 5,118.

If you’re bothered, today is the day that Daniel Craig becomes the 2nd longest-serving #Bond actor. pic.twitter.com/sEjehwAmw2

— Adrian Stirrup (@adrianstirrup) February 20, 2017

The ranking, compiled by the Press Association, begins from the day each actor was announced as 007 through to the day their successor is officially named.

Daniel Craig made his debut as Bond in 2006’s Casino Royale, and has since followed that up with Quantum of Solace, Spectre and Skyfall. Should he remain in the role for another 971 days, he would officially take the crown as the longest serving 007.

Black Mask announces new series Calexit

10 hours ago

Black Mask Studios has marked Presidents’ Day with the announcement that Young Terrorists creators Matteo Pizzolo and Amancay Nahuelpan are set to launch the new series Calexit, descriped as “a timely title about resisting oppression, punching Nazis, protecting each other, kicking ass, and demanding liberty for all.”

What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1…a margin of almost 3 1/2 million votes? What if the day after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout was California. And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California’s Lax and Sfo, were blockaded by protesters? What if California refused to be ruled?

In Calexit, the citizens of California will struggle to seize power back from an autocratic government. »
