‘Dead Island’ Film Rises Again

Dead Island movie

Remember Dead Island? Even non-gamers probably checked out the much-praised trailer that featured the non-linear story of a young girl’s descent into undead-dom. Movie rights to the game series were snapped up quickly after that trailer debuted, but that was in 2011. Actually making the movie has been a more difficult thing than making the first rights deal.

Now Dead Island is back, even as the next numbered game sequel crawls towards a 2015 release on next-gen consoles.  Read More »

Bill Murray

Jon Favreau just bagged a white whale while casting his Disney remake of The Jungle Book. Or, maybe more to the point, a great big bear. Bill Murray will provide the voice of Baloo, the second lead, in Favreau’s CG live action hybrid. He joins an already rich voice cast that includes Scarlett Johnasson, Idirs Elba, Lupita Nyong’o, Christopher Walken and Ben Kingsley. The film is scheduled for release October 9, 2015. Read More »

Marvel female superhero movie

This weekend’s Guardians of the Galaxy is the tenth(!) entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it offers up a whole bunch of things we’ve never seen before in the MCU including a walking tree, a talking raccoon, and a one-sided dance-off. But one thing it still doesn’t offer? A lead female superhero.

Over the past few months, Kevin Feige has been fielding more and more questions about whether Marvel Studios might release a female superhero movie. Rumors of a Captain Marvel or Black Widow movie have come and gone. And through it all, Feige’s maintained the same wishy-washy stance.

In his latest interview, he says he “hopes” Marvel will offer a female lead “sooner rather than later.” It’s just that Marvel is just really busy right now. Read Feige’s comments about a Marvel female superhero film after the jump.

Star Wars jizz

Do you know what form of music was played by the cantina band in Star Wars? It’s called Jizz. No, really. Star Wars jizz was gently established in the Return of the Jedi novelization, which mentioned “jizz-wailers,” and then cemented in an Expanded Universe short story anthology called Tales From the Mos Eisley Cantina.

The first story in that book focused on the cantina band (Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes, if you want to be precise) and their mastery of jizz. I could tell you more, but there’s a great short documentary that will explain it all. Watch below. Read More »

Mudbloods trailer

People play Quidditch in real life. Seems weird, but who am I to tell people how to spend their time? The game is a bit different without magic, of course. OK, it’s a lot different. No flying brooms, no buzzing snitch. But a dedicated group of people have figured out a way to translate the game into our muggle world in a way that works for them. The documentary Mudbloods follows some of these players as they work their way towards the recently-founded Quidditch World Cup. Watch the Mudbloods trailer after the jump.
