James O'Barr The Crow

From the very moment it was announced, The Crow remake had some fans up in arms — including James O’Barr himself, creator of the original The Crow comics. But he’s since come around on the film, and in a new interview he explains why. Gotta say, his case is fairly convincing.

For one thing, O’Barr says, the new film is not a remake but a “literally page-for-page adaptation” of the book, with a slightly different lead. (I’ll let him explain.) And according to O’Barr, the new Crow will be “closer to Taxi Driver or a John Woo film.” Intrigued yet?

marvel phase 3 theory

We’re all curious to see just what Marvel has planned for the next couple films in its current cycle, and then for the nine-film Phase Three. And we’ve resisted learning too much about Avengers: Age of Ultron, so we’re happily in the speculation camp with most of you. And for those who haven’t been Marvel Comics fans for a long time, the films announced this week might seem like a disparate bunch of stories. How do all these movies tell one unified story thread?

My friend Jackson is a comic book writer, an editor, and screenwriter, and he’s got a pretty compelling vision of what Marvel might have planned. After I read his unified theory of Marvel’s Phase Three plan I showed it to Peter, and he loved it enough that we’re presenting it to you now.

Nothing that you’ll find below is confirmed — this is speculation, but well-informed speculation. If you already know these comics and characters, take it as a jumping-off point for your own discussions about what Marvel might be doing. If you don’t consider this a second-level primer as to what Marvel might be up to.  Read More »

King Kong Portrait by Wei Lin Ke

So far, it’s been nothing but good news on the Skull Island front. After the surprise announcement at Comic-Con, we found out that Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct. Then we heard Tom Hiddleston will star. And now it’s more good news as Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Gatins has been brought on for a rewrite.

How is a rewrite good news? Well, besides the addition of a talented new team member, the original script by Max Borenstein was strong enough to attract the star, director, and a two year advance release date. Hopefully, things can only get better. Read more about the Skull Island script below. Read More »

The first official publicity photos for Terminator: Genisys haven’t been great, frankly speaking. But they did leave us wanting to see more, if only to reassure ourselves that the actual movie will look much better.

Sadly, we have a bit of a wait until that can happen since the Terminator: Genisys trailer isn’t here quite yet. In the meantime, though, you can whet your appetite with these new Terminator: Genisys storyboards, which tease a big battle sequence involving John Connor (Jason Clarke) and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney).

So Is ‘Terminator: Genisys’ a Reboot or What?

Terminator cast header

We know how Terminator: Genisys fits into the Terminator franchise in our world. It’s the fifth feature, and the first since 2009′s Terminator Salvation. What’s harder to suss out is how the story fits into the Terminator mythology. Is it a reboot? A sequel? Or something else entirely?

The answer, it turns out, might be “all of the above.” Laeta Kalogridis (who wrote the script with Patrick Lussier) confirms Terminator: Genisys isn’t rewriting the Terminator saga, but following an alternate timeline. Hit the jump for more on the Terminator Genisys reboot question, plus lots more Terminator Genisys images.
