Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is the movie that turned Jim Carrey into a comedy superstar, and it sparked what would become what might be the most lucrative comedy career of the 1990s. NECA previously immortalized the standard version of Ace Ventura as an action figure, complete with animal accessories and his trademark tacky clothing made of real cloth. But now they’re giving us a much better version of Ace Ventura from when he pretends to need psychiatric care at the Shady Acres mental hospital. Read More »

As you have probably heard, bush fires have devastated Australia in recent weeks. Along with all the houses and forests that have been destroyed, 28 people have died and the wildlife has suffered immensely. Experts estimate that over 480 million animals have been killed in the fires, and those trying to keep the surviving animals safe from the fire need all the help they can get. That’s why Bottleneck Gallery has teamed up with Mark Englert for a new charity print inspired by the hit TV series LOST, and 100% of the profits will be donated to the Kangaroo Island Wildlife Park.

Suzanne Collins‘ The Hunger Games prequel is finally being released this year, and Lionsgate is already poised to turn it into a movie. The original trilogy began with the 74th annual Hunger Games, but this story is set 64 years before that – ten years into the Capitol of Panem’s oppressive rule, which is driven by murderous, nationally televised games where children murder each other.
Now we know who the protagonist of this prequel story will be, and…well, it’s a choice. The new novel, which is entitled The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, will follow a heroic young version of Coriolanus Snow – the same man who eventually becomes President Snow, the tyrannical leader of Panem and primary villain of the Katniss Everdeen trilogy.
