Last week, Ben Kingsley got the attention of Marvel fans everywhere when he revealed he’d filmed a “secret project” for the studio. Kingsley had seemingly finished his role as the Mandarin in Iron Man 3, but this new information brought up a plethora of possibilities regarding the character. Studio President Kevin Feige wouldn’t comment on the quote, but basically acknowledged Kingsley had filmed something.
Well now, the Marvel masters at Latino-Review claim to have information on the “secret project.” First of all, it’s a One-Shot. That’s the non-spoiler. For more spoiler-filled information that’ll make your head spin, read below. Read More »

Lee Hardcastle does some great things with clay, and has used the pliable stuff to animate some great movie homages (his remakes of The Raid and The Thing quickly come to mind) and some memorable comedy as well as a few gross-out gags.
His most notable bit of nastiness might be T Is for Toilet, which was Hardcastle’s submission in the ABCs of Death director contest, and which won the open spot in the film. Now the animator has released a longer piece, called Ghost Burger. This is a sequel to T Is for Toilet, which shows that the kid from the short didn’t die, but that he is certainly damaged both physically and mentally. But while things haven’t gone well for the kid, he is able to see ghosts, and that turns out to be an ability with a surprising side benefit.
Ghost Burger feels like the sort of film you’d discover on a dusty VHS shelf — it’s got the appeal of some of the stranger horror produced in the ’80s, with a collision of action, supernatural weirdness, and plain old strange stuff.

DC Comics is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Man of Steel, and the summer release of the film called Man of Steel is just part of the big plan.
A while back we told you that director Zack Snyder was working with Bruce Timm on a two-minute animated short that would cover the comic and motion picture history of Superman, and now that short is online. It runs through the big moments in the character’s history, more in the sense of how he’s depicted in media than on a personal level.
Which is to say, this doesn’t start with Krypton; it starts with Action Comics #1, and works its way through all the major projects that have brought Superman to life, right up to and through this summer’s film. Read More »
