It poster 4

Pennywise the clown is an iconic image of horror. Starting next week, if director Andy Muschietti‘s adaptation of Stephen King‘s It is as scary as the early buzz indicates, the shape-shifting clown will continue to live on in nightmares (and hopefully in a sequel). The movie is on track to be a big hit at the box office, so the character could become more popular than ever. Before Pennywise terrorizes the children of Derry, Maine, you can find the clown all over the place in Gallery1988 this weekend in Los Angeles, where a can’t-miss It themed exhibit is taking place.

Below, check out some terrific It posters from Gallery1988, Mondo, and more.

wonder woman bonus scene

If there was anything truly wrong about Wonder Woman, it’s that there wasn’t nearly enough Etta Candy. Lucy Davis‘ scene-stealing performance as the buoyant and bullish secretary was delightful every time she was on screen, and provided much of the levity for the film.

And she’s back in action, this time recruiting Steve Trevor’s band of misfits for a post-war mission in a Wonder Woman bonus scene available exclusively on the superhero movie’s upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Diorama

Even if you didn’t love Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 as much as the original Marvel Studios movie that kicked off the franchise a few years ago, you can’t deny that the opening credits sequence is one of the best of all time.

Fueled by Electric Light Orchestra’s upbeat track “Mr. Blue Sky,” we get to see our ragtag team of cosmic criminals turned heroes take on a battery hungry monster called an abilisk. But that’s all in the background, because the real action comes from the adorable Baby Groot shaking his roots and branches all over the place. That entire scene comes to life in a new 1:10 scale Guardians of the Galaxy 2 diorama from Iron Studios. Check it out below. Read More »

Star Wars Force Friday II

We’re just one week away from Force Friday II, the big merchandising event that will see a slew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi toys, clothing, posters, books and more thrown on shelves as part of Disney and Lucasfilm’s massive hype machine that we happily crank up each and every week. While most of the secrets of The Last Jedi will likely be kept intact, it doesn’t mean there won’t be some details gleaned from the event. In fact, part of the Force Friday II promotion will include the reveal of a new character through the “Find the Force” augmented reality event accessed through the official Star Wars app.

Winds of Winter Release Date

Update: You know it’s easy to get your wires crossed when you read things on the internet? Well, it happens to the best of us. Anyway, it turns out that George R.R. Martin does watch Game of Thrones – he’s just behind on the current season.

Our original story, which also includes a nutty conspiracy theory that you should read about anyway, continues below.

***

Now that Game of Thrones has sped long past where A Song of Ice and Fire author George R.R. Martin last left us with A Dance With Dragons, Martin has admitted that he no longer watches the show. Or, at least, the seventh season.

It’s not out of spite for the show making different choices with his characters than he — though Martin has long held a grudge against fan fiction of his work — but because he simply doesn’t have time. Martin is chipping away at his thousand-page sixth novel in the Song of Ice and Fire series, and it’s taking all of his Sunday nights to get it done. Although there’s an interesting conspiracy floating around that Martin may or may not be already done with The Winds of Winter.

Kingsman Whiskey - Kingsman: The Golden Circle

When the Kingsman: The Golden Circle came to San Diego Comic-Con back in July, not only did it come with a bunch of footage from the comic book sequel directed by Matthew Vaughn, but it also came with an interesting cross-promotion for fans who are 21 and older (at least in the United States).

In the United Kingdom, the cover for the Kingsman agency is a tailor shop. But in the United States, their American cousin agency, the Statesman, operate a whiskey distillery. Vaughn found this the perfect opportunity to create his own brand of Statesman whiskey (which Halle Berry chugged a pint of at Comic-Con) in collaboration with the Old Forester whiskey distillery. But that won’t be the only Kingsman whiskey on the market.

The GlenDronach Distillery has announced their own Kingsman Edition whiskey as a cross-promotion with 20th Century Fox, Marv Films and Aberdeenshire distillery. You can find out more about both whiskeys below and see a new international poster for the sequel as well. Read More »

Samurai Jack Returning

Earlier this year, Adult Swim brought us the fifth and final season of the acclaimed Emmy-winning animated series Samurai Jack. After an initial run that lasted from 2001 through 2004, the series from Genndy Tartakovsky disappeared for 13 years, only to be revived to finish the story of the titular samurai’s battle with the shapeshifting demon called Aku. Soon you’ll be able to have every episode of the series in high-definition.

Cartoon Network and Adult Swim have have announced a Samurai Jack complete series box set that will have the first four initial seasons of the series as well as the final fifth season from the revival earlier this year. Though the first four seasons have been available on DVD for awhile now, this marks the first time they’ll be available on Blu-ray.
