Many groups of fantasy fans have places they can visit in order to play in their preferred world. Harry Potter fans have theme parks and museums. DC fans can go to Six Flags. Marvel and Star Wars are owned by Disney, so those will eventually be covered. But what about Lord of the Rings fans? Sure, they can go to New Zealand where Peter Jackson’s movies were filmed, but that’s more of a sightseeing trip. Where’s the action?
They action may be coming to Spain. The town of Rincon de la Victoria recently announced it will be building a theme part called “La Comarca,” which is a rough translation of The Shire. Read more about the Lord of the Rings theme park below. Read More »

Neill Blomkamp debuted his ideas for a new Alien film via concept art that very clearly showed Hicks, the hero from Aliens who is killed in the opening shots of Alien 3. And his first comments on video about the project, released yesterday, seemed very clear. “There’s Alien, and Aliens, then this film,” he said. That, along with comments from Sigourney Weaver about giving Ripley’s story a proper ending, all made a clear point: this upcoming film will basically ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection.

Every generation needs its preppy boy drama filled with up-and-coming faces. For the late ’80s and ’90s, it was Dead Poets Society. In the aughts, it was The Skulls. Now, in the twenty-teens, it might be The Riot Club.
Max Irons and Sam Claflin play the two newest members of Oxford University’s most exclusive fraternity. Though the upper-crust clique lives for debauchery, things take an ugly turn when one particular evening veers out of control. Lone Scherfig (An Education, One Day) directed. Douglas Booth, Natalie Dormer, Holliday Grainger, and Jessica Brown Findlay also star. Watch The Riot Club trailer after the jump. Read More »
For his second film, Neill Blomkamp chose to follow District 9 with a vision of class warfare as seen through a sci-fi lens. Elysium, starring Matt Damon, Sharlto Copley, and Jodie Foster, has some great concepts and in many cases is executed well. But the movie faltered significantly, with Copley’s over the top villain contrasting with the grimy and ugly underclass seen in detail in the first act, and then, well, whatever Jodie Foster was doing, which just didn’t click. Now Blomkamp is being more candid than we ever see from most directors, saying “I feel like I f*cked it up” when talking about the movie. Read More »
