Here is the first trailer for the highly anticipated sequel to Sin City.
I felt a little underwhelmed by this trailer and I’m wondering if they’ve left it too late to release a sequel.
I also think Frank Miller could have squeezed his name in a few more times, three is just pitiful.
Rejoice, this is an episode missing thought deleted and unrecoverable.
Martyn and Gerrod look at some episodes from series 5 of Doctor Who, this was recorded in 2010.
So, here comes some unexpected news. The US network NBC announced last night that Heroes will be returning in 2015.
The thirteen part “mini-series” will be titled Heroes:Reborn, the series will be produced by creator Tim Kring.
NBC said. “Shows with that kind of resonance don’t come around often and we thought it was time for another installment. We’re thrilled that visionary creator Tim Kring was as excited about jumping back into this show as we were and we look forward to all the new textures and layers Tim plans to add to his original concept. Until we get closer to air in 2015, the show will be appropriately shrouded in secrecy, but we won’t rule out the possibility of some of the show’s original cast members popping back in.”
How do you feel about the news? Let us know below.
‘Heroes Reborn’ Teaser trailer:
The main four have been announced for Fox’s upcoming reboot of the fantastic four franchise.
Interestingly, the studio have gone with a younger cast. Which, given their plans for a shared universe with the X-Men films actually makes sense.
Miles Teller (Divergent) will star as Reed Richards, Michael B Jordan (Chronicle) as the Human Torch, Kate Mara (American Horror Story) will play Invisible Girl Sue Storm and Jamie Bell (Filth) will play Ben Grimm.
The casting of Michael B Jordan has sent racists in a stir. People seem to be forgetting that the previous Sue and Johnny Storm were played by actors of different races.
I’m a firm believer that the right actor for the part, is the right actor for the part.
Jordan has proved himself with amazing performances in projects such as The Wire and Chronicle.
There is nothing about Johnny Storm as a character that dictates that he must be white, he’s ethnicity isn’t important.
There was a point where people scoffed at the fact that the 5ft 3″ Canadian Wolverine, was to be played by a 6ft 4″ Australian musical theater actor. At the time his present contract ends, that 6ft 4″ Australian will have played Wolverine for twenty-two years.
Fantastic Four has a worldwide release date of 18 June 2015.
What do you think of the new Fantastic Four? Let us know below.
To celebrate the release of Rocky:The Heavyweight Collection on blu ray, I attended a special screening held by Twentieth Century Fox.
The Heavyweight Collection features all 6 classic movies along with a ton of new extras.
Also in attendance was heavyweight boxer David “The Hayemaker”.
Haye has long held a passion for boxing. He began training at age six, at the now famous Fitzroy Lodge Boxing Club in South London.
He quickly excelled as a junior boxer and won several of his fights.
Before the screening Haye took part in Q&A with TalkSport host, Steve Bunce. Once Dave was seated and comfortable the inevitable question was asked “how much do you like Rocky?”.
Haye replied that he didn’t start from the first one but the 3rd installment of Rocky, which he loved and had seen a few times before he went back to watch the first two.
Haye was laid back and spoke candidly about the fight against ‘The Big Hairy Russian’ Wladimir Klitschko and the injury that made him retire from boxing.
The injury is still visible, Haye at times found it difficult to hold the mic.
When asked about his inspiration he mentioned a few boxers, including Rocky, played by Sylvester Stallone, but his main influence was Muhammad Ali, one of the greatest boxers in history.
Haye went on to speak about his future plans of opening a Health Spa, in Dubai. He also aims to break in to acting.
It was a great experience to have seen David Haye and listen to some of his experiences and his future plans, he expects to make a full recovery I hope he gets a chance to fight in the ring once again.
As a man of my age, it’s slightly embarrassing to admit that this was my first introduction in to the world of Rocky Balboa. I look forward to going the distance with The Heavyweight collection
The Rocky Heavyweight Collection on Blu-ray is out now from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment
The crowdfunded series The Minister of Chance makes its cinematic premiere as a ten-minute pilot film. It follows a successful series of six episodes for audio. As noted in my writeup last year, the story concerns nations brandishing an odd mix of cavalry and rocketry at each other, vying for control of this strange world’s future.
We get the first crucial turn of events in this short, which features Paul McGann as an ambassador to Tanto, an island nation. Tanto’s king is played by Tim McInnerny, last seen by Doctor Who fans in charge of ‘The Planet of the Ood.’ Neither of these Englishmen is wasted in the space given; it’s the second time this winter McGann has shone in short form cinema, having hiked up his profile last November in ‘Night of the Doctor.’
In this visual format, the series is finally allowed to wordlessly express its appealing mix of ‘period’ and futuristic. Writer/director Dan Freeman’s visual language is also a worthy addition to the franchise; the leads are surrounded by non-speaking activity that says much about the unfolding events.
Most importantly, this begins a tale with some bite, which justifies its existence beyond its ability to get funded. I was was pleased nonetheless to see some familiar names in the grateful roll of donors that concludes the short. The release of the micropilot is slated to follow an extended ‘preview period’ of access by donation at MinisterOfChance.com.
In which Martyn and Gerrod give you a brief and, we mean brief episode, just to catch up.
103 will be out soon, we’ll be reviewing the movie Filth.
It has been revealed that Marvel are developing a stand alone Black window movie that will tell the Back story of Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson).
