Saved By the Bell

Prometheus is spilling over into comics. Dark Horse Entertainment is “brewing something up that I think the fans of Ridley Scott‘s amazing film will really like,” says publisher Mike Richardson.

No official announcement has been made and details are still scarce, but Bleeding Cool reports that Dark Horse plans to introduce Prometheus characters into their Aliens comic book franchise, which has been around since 1988. Richardson let slip that a writer had already been hired for the new project, but wouldn’t say who. More info is expected to hit at Comic-Con. [THR]

After the jump, Saved By the Bell, Miami Vice, and Punky Brewster get comic-book-sequelized, and the Mad Max video game gains an Aussie accent.

These days, animation isn’t as defined by age as it once was. Once upon a time, a Disney movie was only thought to be for kids. But recently, Pixar has tackled mature themes, the humor of South Park has become a cultural institution, Star Wars is an animated TV series, comic book characters have cartoons and thanks to genres like anime, R-rated animation isn’t an oxymoron.

Enter Justin White, an up and coming artist made popular through sites like Threadless. He’s decided to take that thought one step further and turn some of your favorite live action movies and TV shows in to animation. His first solo show is called Rated G and opens at Gallery 1988 Melrose, in Los Angeles on Friday. We’re proud to exclusively the entire show.

White’s familiar yet flithy animated style has reimagined scenes from 30 films and shows never meant for animation. Films like Fight Club, Fargo, Casablanca, The Breakfast Club, Oldboy, Kindergarden Cop, Alien, Reservoir Dogs, There Will Be Blood and a whole lot more have been reimagined as high quality animation cels. He even tackled TV shows like Community, The Office, Breaking Bad and more.

After the jump check out all 30 images from the show and find out when and how you can grab them. Read More »

This is a pretty simple equation: led by Miles Fisher, the cast of Final Destination 5 has spent some perfectly good Warner Bros. money on a promo video for the splatter sequel, in which a school full of characters very much like those from Saved by the Bell are killed in horrifying ways. And it’s all set to a peppy pop song called ‘New Romance.’ Want to see a famous actor partially decapitated by a record shot out of an exploding jukebox? Delights such as that are waiting below.  Read More »
