Gotham City Nightmare dares to ask, what would the familiar faces of Gotham become when viewed through eyes filled with fear? The Batman Statue gives you a glimpse of the Dark Knight like never before.

No longer a crusader in just a cape and cowl, Batman has taken on a more sinister style as a bat creature, poised on top of a warped Gotham gargoyle, his wings spread wide. Disgusting creatures like bats, rats, and centipedes crawl at Batman’s clawed feet, emerging from the stonework on which he stands.

Batman’s body is carefully sculpted with sinewy flesh capturing the monstrous »

16 September 2017 11:28 AM, PDT

Taika Waititi, known for his unique sense of humour, has taken on one of the most anticipated films of the year. After his well received Hunt For the Wilderpeople and What We Do In the Shadows, New Zealander Waititi was named director for the third instalment of the Thor franchise, Thor: Ragnarok

The directing job wasn’t enough for this storyteller though, as he decided he needed to be in front of the camera as well. Choosing the rocky alien Korg, a Kronan and born on the planet Ria, Taika will portray the gladiator who first appeared in the Planet Hulk storyline, which is being encompassed into Ragnarok. And now we have a glimpse of the character, thanks to a Pop! Vinyl figure for the Marvel threequel.

The director hilariously revealed this news via his Twitter account, stating that: “The greatest character in the McU, played by the greatest actor in the known world, »

Seth MacFarlane’s The Orville to feature Star Trek actor cameos

16 September 2017 10:15 AM, PDT

Seth MacFarlane recently took to Reddit for an Ama to promote his latest Fox sci-fi comedy, The Orville, where he revealed that the show may feature a cameo or two from the actors of the franchise that helped inspire it, Star Trek.

When one user asked the Family Guy and American Dad creator/star if he had any plans to have Star Trek actors cameo on the show, MacFarlane responded with a vague “We got one or two in the lineup….”

Comment from discussion I am Seth MacFarlane. Ama..

While he doesn’t offer up any hints about which actors will appear on the show, it sounds like at least a few Star Trek stars are embracing The Orville, which is simultaneously a parody and love letter to the classic space franchise.

William Shatner always seems gung-ho about appearing in Star Trek rip-offs/send-ups and even returned to voice James T. »

Jamie Lee Curtis heading back to Haddonfield for new Halloween movie

16 September 2017 9:54 AM, PDT

Earlier this year it was announced that John Carpenter is returning to the iconic slasher series Halloween to produce a new instalment in the franchise from director David Gordon Green, and now Jamie Lee Curtis has taken to Twitter to announce that she will be reprising the role of Laurie Strode.

“Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues,” wrote Curtis on her Twitter account. “40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween. Release date 10/19/18.”

Curtis portrayed Laurie in the original Halloween and its 1981 sequel Halloween II, but the character was said to have died prior to the events of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers. However, Curtis then returned to the franchise for Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, with the character said to have faked her death, before being killed by her brother Michael Myers in the 2002 instalment Halloween: Resurrection.

None of this will matter however, as »

BoJack Horseman Season 4 Episode 9 Review – ‘Ruthie’

16 September 2017 9:30 AM, PDT

Liam Hoofe reviews the ninth episode of BoJack Horseman season 4… 

Princess Carolyn and Ralph have been a shining beacon of hope for the show in season 4. Their battle to have a baby, despite Princess Carolyn’s difficulties having children and their love for each other in the face of diversity and prejudice has given us hope that perhaps, just perhaps, someone in BoJack could have a happy ending.

The episode here begins with a look into the future. Princess Carolyn’s great-great-granddaughter, Ruthie, is giving a talk to her classmates about her family history, and in particular, the worst day of Princess Carolyn’s life. It’s an interesting narrative device for BoJack – one that effectively tells us that, despite all the grief that is going to come, Princess Carolyn will get through it, and not only that, she will definitely have a child. It fills us with hope and »

Four Oscar Contenders That Actually Look Pretty Good

16 September 2017 9:00 AM, PDT

Samuel Brace on four possible Oscar contenders still to come this year…

It’s that time of year again, that period once every 12 months where the industry unleashes a bevy of films with hope that the Academy will recognise them for greatness.

Films released during awards season tend to be thought of as the year’s premium offerings, mostly because this is what the studios want you to think, but of course, this isn’t particularly true. All movie fans know that the Oscars don’t always recognise the best movies available, just the ones designed for the Academy to enjoy – the Oscar bait, you might say. But this year, there are some genuinely interesting looking offerings available for consideration, movies that actually look like something to be excited for. Some are more Oscar-baity than others, but regardless, there are four films in particular that fans of cinema should certainly »
