Look! It's New Sci-Fi Flicks In Theaters!

New original sci-fi in theaters is rare these days it seems.  Here's a couple of movies that look promising.  Not that alien invasion is totally original but Skyline looks very cool.  Skyline comes from The Brothers Strause.  The other trailer is for I Am Number Four which looks pretty neat also and is produced by Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay.

Tron Legacy Concept Art

Nolan Confirms He Is Directing Batman 3

Christopher Nolan sat down with Empire Magazine and finally confirmed what was expected ending the months of speculation:

"I don’t know if it’s announced or if it’s not announced," said Nolan. "It’s becoming inevitable, I’ll put it that way. I feel myself falling into it, I guess. And getting it all figured out and I’m pretty excited about what we’re doing so… If I haven’t announced it, I think that people probably all know at this point that I’m doing it."

Hang on, that's not 100% clear: so we can safely assume you're directing?   

"I think you can at this point,   yes."

Yogi Bear Trailer Anyone

We may not admit it, but a lot of us watched Yogi Bear growing up.  Now granted most of these cartoons turned into movies have all been horribly bad but they make money at theatrs so studios are going to continue to make them.  Here's the latest trailer for Yogi Bear.

Lucas Himself To Be In Clone Wars

Star Wars" creator George Lucas will see some action in this week's episode of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."
      When Pantoran Chairman Papanoida's family is kidnapped and held for ransom, Ahsoka Tano must team up with Senator Riyo Chuchi to aid the new chairman in recovering his family. It's a journey deep into the dark underbelly of the Coruscant crime scene, with an unlikely--and immediately recognizable--protagonist painted into a corner and forced into action in "Sphere of Influence," an all-new episode of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" – airing at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, October 1 on Cartoon Network.
      Seen only briefly as a background character in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, Papanoida will nonetheless appear very familiar to "Star Wars" fans, film buffs and pop culture aficionados. He is, of course, modeled after "Star Wars" creator George Lucas – who also wore blue face paint for the character's live-action cameo debut.
     "My appearance in 'Episode III' was just for fun. Mostly, I did it for my kids," says Lucas. "I was wrapping the series, and I'd never been on-screen in a 'Star Wars' film, even though I'd been making them for decades. With 'The Clone Wars,' I get the best of both worlds, because I get a starring role but don't have to do any acting or wear any blue make-up."
     While Papanoida is featured fairly passively in his live-action incarnation, the character has an opportunity for a considerably more active role in "The Clone Wars." Taking him deep into the Coruscant underground, the Pantoran Chairman's mission gives him the chance to demonstrate his chops in a few decidedly action-oriented sequences.
     "We actually made Papanoida into kind of an action hero," says Dave Filoni, supervising director of "The Clone Wars." "The bad guys have his family, and he goes after them, blasters blazing. Shoot first, ask questions later. His character is very focused on finding and protecting his kids; it's a desperate situation, and he steps up. It's a fun episode with a lot of action – and it's unique, in that our normal heroes give up the spotlight while Papanoida takes matters into his own hands. This was a surreal episode to produce, since the guy on screen was sitting right next to me while we were making it."

Green Arrow Animated is Online!

The Force Is Returning To Theaters In 3-D!

Lucasfilm Ltd. announced today that the live-action Star Wars Saga will be converted to 3D!

For Star Wars we will take our time, applying everything we know both aesthetically and technically to bring audiences a fantastic new Star Wars  The films are expected to be released yearly with Episode I in 2012, Attack Of The Clones in 2013, Revenge Of The Sith in 2014, A New Hope in 2015, The Empire Strikes Back in 2016, and Return Of The Jedi in 2017.

24: The Complete Series & 24: The Complete 8th Season  In Stores December 14

24 ended it's run on a pretty decent note with an exciting season.  24 was very very good at times and other times it was like "oh no not another mole in CTU! Nooooo!!" .  Kiefer Sutherland's jack Bauer was a great character and was the reason to watch the show.  It was action packed, exciting, well acted, and some of the highest production values for a television show ever.  The entire series hits in a huge box set as well as the final and last season.  Look for them just in time for Christmas

Batman Beyond The Complete Series
In Stores November 23

While not as good as the original 1990's Batman The Animated Series, Batman Beyond still held it's on and was pretty good at times also.  now you can sit down and watch the entire series again and again!

Despicable Me
In Stores December 14

I didn't see this but I have heard it was hilarious.  It comes out in multiple versions with tons of extras.  The kids will love it and the parents too since we are all just big kids!

Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
In Stores November 9

I have never read the comic book and didn't see the movie either.  I'm not sure if the movie just looked dumb to me or I'm sick of Michael Cerna and just want to have him stand there and throw pebble at him and watch him flinch.  I can't decide.  But it has a huge following of fans and it hits DVD and Blu-Ray just before Thanksgiving.  So watch it and give thanks that Tron Legacy will be in theaters just a few weeks after this hits DVD.

WB's Reveals Justice League Movie Plot

Warner Brothers has decided to release info on the proposed plot of the cancelled Justice League movie, as well as other details of the production.  how much of this is true is unsure, but several media sites have reported it even though I was yet to find an actual source.  So let's assume the source is Warner Brothers.  It's an interesting read and it would have been a very cool film.

In 2006, after "Superman Returns" made disappointing numbers at the Box Office, Warner decide to produce a Live-Action Justice League movie to cash in the cartoon's popularity and luckily, jumpstart Spin-Off franchises starring the team's members.  A Script was written by Kieran and Michelle Mulroney, which made the Warner executives very happy. The movie would be set in the same Universe as "Batman Begins" and "Superman Returns" and have the following Plot. 
 It'd begin with Superman, wearing a black and silver costume, landing on the rooftop of a church, where he meets with Wonder-Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern, Aquaman and Martian Manhunter. Together, they descend into the streets, where they are surrounded by civillians and journalists as they enter the church, where a funeral is being held. Batman watches them from a affar.

Six days before, Batman, using a state-of-art surveilliance satellite called Brother-Eye, spies on the other members of the Justice League: Clark Kent, Diana from Themyscera, Barry Allen, John Stewart, Arthur Curry and John Jones.

After Batman leaves for a meeting with Maxwell Lord under his civillian identity, the Bat-computer in hacked by a outside source, that uses Brother-Eye to resume spying on John Jones, a police detective from Central City.

John receives a package and, upon opening, a swarm of nanobots is sprayed on his face. They enter his body and take over his movements, forcing him to reveal himself as the Martian Manhunter to his co-worker before making him fly to a certain location in Colorado.

Barry Allen spots him and attempts to follow him as the Flash, but fails. Upon arriving in Colorado, J'onn is captured by mysterious forces.

As the Justice League investigates Martian Manhunter's disappearance, Batman finds out Brother-Eye has been compromised and that the files he kept on how to defeat each member of the Justice League have been stolen.

Those files are uploaded on the OMACs, advanced cyborgs that take over ordinary people trough a nanovirus. The OMACs are send to destroy the Justice League, while a mysterious enemy uses the nanobots to take over Martian Manhunter's powers and use his telephaty to take over Superman and force him to kill Batman.

Wonder-Woman and Batman engage in a powerful battle against Superman, while Green Lantern and Aquaman fight the OMACs send after them and the Flash's investigation leads him to a castle in Belgica, where he is murdered by the mastermind behind the attack after finding J'onn. The mastermind is not one, but two: Maxwell Lord and Thalia Al Ghul.

Lord believes that the superheroes are taking over the world and changing the natural course of history, and wants to destroy them to "save the world", whereas Thalia, the new leader of the League of Shadows, wants revenge for her father's, R'as Al Ghul, death at the hands of Batman years prior.

They have created the OMAC virus with the help of an outside source and use the OMACs to attack the Justice League.

Batman finds Lord's hideout and Wonder-Woman snaps his neck to release J'onn and Superman from his control. Thalia fights Batman and is defeated, but the Justice League now has to deal with the OMAC army and the real mastermind behind it's creation: Lex Luthor.

Using a powerful EMP generator created by Wayne Industries and aided by the former Kid Flash, Wally West, now the second Flash, the Justice League defeats the OMACs, but Luthor gets away with his envolvement in all of this.

Batman leaves the group, Wonder-Woman receives murder charges and Wally decides to join the Justice League and honor his uncle's legacy. At the ending, it is revealed that there was a fouth villain envolved in the conspiracy: Darkseid, who is planning a invasion to Earth, setting up the sequel.

Warner hired George Miller to direct the movie and planned to have a big ensemble cast, with Brandon Routh as Superman; Christian Bale as Batman; Jessica Biel as Wonder-Woman; Anton Yelchin as the Flash; Columbus Short as Green Lantern; Leonardo DiCaprio as Aquaman; Lawrence Fishburne as Martian Manhunter; Scarlett Johansson as Thalia; Mel Gibson as Maxwell Lord and Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.

However, Christopher Nolan felt that the movie would damage the image of the sequel of "Batman Begins", "The Dark Knight", already in production.

To prevent this, Warner decide to rewrite the movie as of not being connected to the Nolanverse. This, allied to the fan backlash and the expensive taxes charged by the Australian government, led Warner to settle for a lesser cast, with D.J. Cotrona as Superman; Armie Hammer as Batman; Megan Gale as Wonder-Woman; Adam Brody as the Flash; Common as Green Lantern; Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman; Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter; Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord and Teresa Palmer as Thalia Al Ghul.

Miller decide to rewrite the movie by himself, making it a gritty, bloody, almost "Watchmen"-like tale that dwelved deeply into the Justice Leaguers troubled psyches. Warner decided that it was just not worth it to continue with the project and interrupted the production two weeks before filming began. Sets, props, costumes, storyboard and Animatics had already been done by the time.

The Justice League's headquarters would be the Hall of Justice in Washington, D.C., designed by Diana and John Stewart and funded by Bruce Wayne.

The Fortress of Solitude, the Batcave, the Themyscera embassy, Barry Allen's house, the Atlantis throne room and Maxwell Lord's mansion/headquarters would be heavily featured.

Superman's costume was all blue except for gold belt and red cape, and had Kryptonian lettering etched into its fabric, a digital print along his arms, like electronic data. His belt had fine detail that told the story of how he landed on earth.

Batman's suit was all black, more like a black-ops military soldier. Very bulky, solid and practical. He carried tools on his belt, like batrangs, hooks and gas grenades. Not as futuristic or sleek as the Nolan one.

Wonder Woman's armor was realistic, ancient Greek warrior, with leather bodice and a battle-skirt with greek symbols on the belt. No stars, stripes or spandex of any kind.

Flash had a classic suit - full red bodysuit, flash logo on chest, runners, the golden ear wings were smaller, and went straight back instead of outwards.

Green Lantern had the classic John Stewart version of the uniform, but more alien and organic-looking.

Aquaman had the modern look - long hair, green scaly tights, golden armor, but assymetrical, so his left shoulder was exposed. His left hand had a harpoon attachment.

Martian Manhunter used his original martian form troughout the movie.

Iris West would be heavily featured in the movie and Zoe Kazan was cast to play her. There were also rumors about a certain Dr. Patrick O'Brien, played by Bob Saget. You must remember that that's Plastic-Man's secret identity.

Further rewrites of the movie had the Justice League's origin being told, but still featured the OMACs and the League of Assassins. Further rewrites also had R'as Al Ghul, in the classic immortal eco-terrorist version, play a major part alongside Max, Thalia and Lex.

The V.G.F. Report

It's Video Game Fridayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!!!  And here it is!

DC Universe Online

DC universe Online is coming to PC and Playstation 3 in the very near future and Jim Lee recently sat down and commentated on some things in a director's trailer.  Check it out here as well as the original trailer for the game!!

Star Wars The Old Republic

Bioware has given a  reason to players to play something else besides Jedi class when The Old Republic hits next spring.  Smugglers will have a constant companion in Bowdaar, a Wookiee gladiator who started his career in the arenas on the moon Nar Shaddaa, also known as the Smuggler’s Moon. It sounds like Bowdaar will work like a pet in Warcraft, for use as a tank or crowd control as the situation warrants.  Smugglers can either specialize in dual-wield Gunslinging becoming  “master of the trick shot” and “first to dive for cover and willing to take advantage of every opportunity." There's also the stealth based Scoundrel who doesn’t have time for “politeness or a fair fight”, and tends to always shoot first and ask questions later.

Red Dad Redemption Double XP Weekend

Red Dead Redemption is an awesome game but i ahve yet to get into the multiplayer too much. This weekend though your deadly efforts will be rewarded handsomely for the next three days as Rockstar is holding its second double XP weekend for the hit western shooter.

Director's Short List For Superman Film

I really like Superman Returns a lot.  I enjoyed the nostalgia of it.  The airplane scene was incredible.  I had no problem with the casting and overall I thought Bryan Singer made a great Superman film.  I know though a lot of people didn't like it and Warner Brothers wants a new film in theaters in 2012.  Christopher Nolan is going to produce the film and apparently has a short list of directors he is interested in according to Deadline. The report says, "Nolan has starting meeting candidates Tony Scott(Unstoppable), Matt Reeves(Let Me In), Jonathan Liebesman(Battle: Los Angeles), Duncan Jones(Source Code), Zack Snyder(Sucker Punch), this week and will submit his choice to the studio within the next few weeks."  So those are the candidates for the reboot of Superman.  I really hope it's not a complete reboot.  Everyone and their grandmother knows the origin of Superman and it was told very well in the 1978 original.  I have faith in Christopher Nolan though so let's hope for the best.

Steve Rodgers Spotted On The Cap Set

Chris Evans was spotted on the set of Captain America: The First Avenger and it was a never before seen all-new all-bulked up Chris Evans!  INF Daily has lots of pics for you to check out!  Captain America hits theaters in Summer 2011!

This is a quick clip from tomorrow night's final season premiere of Smallville.  The producers use to swear "no flights and no tights" but looks like they are going to go against that in the final season!

New Trailer For Harry #7

There's a new trailer for Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 1.  I'm not a huge Potter fan, I've one, two, skipepd three and four, then saw five.  I've had part six on my DVR forever waiting to watch it.  So I'm a very casual fan, but this new trailer for the latest installment is pretty awesome.  Check it out!

All Star Trailer

     Following Superman/Batman: Apocalypse, DC's next animated feature will be All-Star Superman. The title will hit stores in Winter 2011 and you can watch the trailer below, thanks to MTV. The trailer will be included with Superman/Batman: Apocalypse.

Smallville's Chloe To Debut in Action Comics

Chloe Sullivan has become a popular character on the television series Smallville.  She will now be making her comic book debut and DC and have brought everyone this ten page preview of her debut.  It's not the first time a popular DC television star has crossed into comics continuity, Harley Quinn of course did it after being extremely popular in Batman The Animated Series in the 1990's.

Click on the images for larger versions to read them!

Spider-Man Promo Poster

The new Spider-man reboot movie hits theaters in 2012 and will be in 3-D.  Sony released this promo poster for promo art usage leading up to the film.  For a reboot the font sure looks like the original trilogy of films.  Maybe they don't want to distant themselves from the Sam Rami films all that much or maybe Sony's marketing sucks.  Either way I think the whole thing is a bad idea and would rather have seen Spider-man 4 even if they had to recast it all

Struzan For Some Never Before Seen Art

You may or may not know it, but you're familiar with the art of Drew Struzan. If you've seen the movie posters for E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Star Wars, Back to the Future or Big Trouble in Little China, then you have seen his work.  Struzan has a new book out called The Art Of Drew Struzan and I thought I would share a couple of pieces I thought were cool!

Walking Dead Poster

AMC released today the key art for its upcoming original drama The Walking Dead, which premieres Halloween night, October 31 at 10pm.

Star Sapphire In Green Lantern? Doesn't Look Like It!

Blake Lively chatted with MTV and was asked about playing Carol Ferris in Green Lantern following her role in The Town.
     "To get to do a role like this that is so dark and so different and so broken and then to go be in a superhero movie opposite such amazing actors and an incredible director, and not just be the damsel in distress, be a fighter pilot, be his boss at the company, to play women with strengths are the characters I'm most attracted to," Lively said.
Carol ultimately becomes the villain Star Sapphire in the comics, but will there be any signs of that in the first film?
     "No, not yet," Lively added. "Well, I mean, there are always winks and homages to certain things in the comics for the fans, but I don't think you know yet how evil she turns."
     The Martin Campbell-directed Green Lantern is scheduled to hit theaters on June 17.

The V.G.F. Report

It's Video Game Friday!! A little game called Halo: Reach launched this week and more so here's what is going on!

Halo: Reach
In the first 24 hours after the game went on sale on September 14, the game raked in over $200 million in the United States and Europe. (Canada was not mentioned.) Though not enough to beat the multiplatform Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's record of $310 million in 24 hours, it was enough to best Halo 3's $170 million day-one haul in September 2007. The last Halo game, 2009's Halo 3: ODST, made $125 million in just over two weeks.

Blu-Ray 3D Playback Coming To PS3
Sony continued its 3D initiative by announcing that the next PlayStation 3 firmware update would add 3D Blu-ray movie playback capabilities to the platform. Currently, it is the only console to offer standard Blu-ray playback and/or 3D gaming.

However, only a few Blu-ray titles currently have 3D versions, including Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and the just-released Monster House. A 3D-compatible television is also required to view the games in 3D, with Sony's electronics business offer offering several models in its Bravia line of high-definition televisions.

Epic Mickey Will Launch November 30th
