In the mid-1990s, Walt Disney Television produced an animated series called Gargoyles about a group of creatures that were turned to stone during the day but protected New York City by night. A stylistic successor to Batman: The Animated Series, the show featured darker storylines than were typically found in animation of that era and gained a cult following. Its small but loyal fan base has been clamoring for a movie version for years, and now it appears that one of Hollywood’s hottest directors wants to direct one.
A new report says Jordan Peele, who won an Oscar for writing last year’s cultural phenomenon Get Out, has actually pitched a new movie take on the animated series to Disney. Read more about the possible Jordan Peele Gargoyles movie below. Read More »
It’s easy to forget that when Joss Whedon was hired to direct The Avengers, the decision raised some eyebrows from Hollywood’s elite. Whedon only had one movie to his name at that point, and was far better known for his work in television. But those of us who had seen Firefly, Whedon’s pulpy, ensemble-driven sci-fi western, and Serenity, the film continuation of the story, knew he had the chops to bring Earth’s Mightiest Heroes together.
This year marks the 15th anniversary of the early cancellation of Firefly, and Zoic Studios, the Emmy-winning company that created the show’s visual effects, has created a video tribute to some of the best moments in the franchise. Take a quick flight back to the early 2000s and see the Serenity take flight once more in a brand new shot created specifically for this video. Read More »
