Everyone is waiting patiently for the upcoming Christopher Nolan Batman film, The Dark Knight rises. The third installment of this modern batman epic is looking to be pretty interesting and is hopefully just as psychologically stunning as the last two films. An all star cast (Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Anne Hathaway) and a dark, noir styled Gotham will hopefully satisfy fans of classic batman comic books as well as new comers to the character. These promotional posters were just released earlier in the week and look fantastic. Enjoy!
The Dead Space official website has released a graphic novel short of a potential new character in the Dead Space universe. This may give us some hints into potential story lines and characters of the highly anticipated Dead Space 3.
We all loved the 1990 science fiction classic “Total Recall”, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger but will the remake be as good?
Philip K Dicks science fiction novel has become a must read for fans of the genre and the movie that came out of it was excellent as well. The film story line follows Douglas Quaid, a man haunted by dreams of a trip to Mars, he investigates his dreams by taking a trip via “Rekall inc”, a company specializing in the implantation and construction of false of memories. Something goes horribly wrong in the process and he is thrown into another life where he is an secret agent, who’s only mission is to take down a tyrannical Martian dictator. The entire movie leaves you questioning reality and if all of Quaid’s exploits are just fantasy.
The new trailer looks promising, with Colin Ferrell playing the role of Quaid, this remake seems to update the classic with a contemporary style, featuring excellent CGI filled futuristic cities, great costume design, and a ton of action. These are exactly what we would hope to expect from a remake of Total Recall, so i am expecting this movie to be a win for sci fi fans!
This coming summer 2012: DC is publishing a seven part interconnected prequel to the popular WATCHMEN graphic novel, written by Alan Moore. This is an interesting idea considering the popularity and importance of the graphic novel, however i personally feel that Watchmen is not a story that needs any more then it already has. Alan Moore also has no part in any of the writing of these mini stories, so this could bring about a lot of controversy from fans. Brian Azzarello and Len Wein are two popular names on board for the project so it may be worth checking out, but waiting for reviews and hear say might be a better option for this one. Once the fans get a hold of this one, their may be a large backlash. Here are all seven images of the cover art for the books!
