Joe Carnahan‘s new film The Grey opens this week, and the movie is a return to the early promise of Carnahan’s movie Narc, which was released in 2004. The Grey is a solid little movie that combines familiar characters with tense action and survival situations, and it should do pretty well with audiences.

Today Millar is talking about the prospects for Kick-Ass 2 which, based on a literal interpretation of his most recent comment, is ready to go forward. And he’s namedropping Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp in relation to the adaptation of his “what if Bruce Wayne was a dick?” series Nemesis. Read More »
