We at TGD are amazed at how much love people still have for Ghostbusters. It’s coming up on three decades since the comedy came out in the summer of 1984 and became the hottest thing since sliced bread, and Dan Aykroyd has been trying hard to get a third Ghostbusters off the ground for years.
Lately we’ve been seeing a lot of stories being continued as graphic novels. There was a graphic novel prequel to Pacific Rim before the movie came out, and there’s also a new continuation of Firefly coming in comic form. Now The Six Million Dollar Man is coming back as a graphic novel, and we’re certain there’s tons of fans that will welcome it back with open arms.
Many fans loved Pacific Rim, but it still has a long way to go in terms of making its money back. Now you can help fix that problem, and potentially help get a sequel off the ground, by supporting Pacific Rim now that it’s available on DVD, BluRay, and VOD.
Being Madonna means you can do pretty much whatever you want, we got that. But it’s great to see that even the biggest stars in the world have to follow some rules, and the news spread all over the world that Madonna was kicked out of a movie screening at the Alamo Drafthouse for texting.
We geeks all remember when The X-Files was the hottest thing on TV, and it was one of those genre shows that managed to crossover to a lot of people, not just sci-fi fans. Producer Chris Carter, who created The X-Files, will soon be back on TV with The After, and there has also been some speculation lately, or at least wishful thinking, about a possible Files reunion.
With Halloween just around the corner, we’re seeing stories about horror movies everywhere, and you certainly can’t leave horror games out of the discussion. Zombie games started back with Resident Evil, and with today’s technology you can make a horror game just as scary as a film.
Ellen Page is the cute as a button star of Juno and Inception, and now she’s starring the game Beyond: Two Souls, along with Willem Dafoe. The game was so cinematic, a sneak preview even screened at the Tribeca Film Festival.
To many who aren’t familiar with Marvel comics, the concept of a superhero named Ant-Man would probably sound like a goof. There’s probably also people that would confuse him with Atom Ant, the Hanna-Barbera cartoon. But Ant-Man is going to be part of the next phase of Marvel movies, and it’s going to be directed by Edgar Wright for a 2015 release.
While it looked like it was in jeopardy earlier this year, Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the giant dinosaur series, is indeed moving forward full speed ahead. Bryce Dallas Howard is the first official member of the cast, and now Jurassic World has another lead role filled.
Since we’re getting closer to the end of the year, we’re certain the Star Wars rumors will keep coming fast and furious, because it’s also getting closer to the point where the movie will have to start shooting. Here’s the latest tid-bits have to do with the movie’s title, or should we say subtitle.
In a recent interview, Roberto Orci, one of the screenwriters of the 2009 Star Trek, as well as Star Trek Into Darkness, had said it was inevitable that Star Trek would one day come back to television. Apparently he knew more than he was telling, because there’s now reports he’s indeed working on a Trek series.
The Fifth Estate, which is about Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, has gotten fair to middling advance reviews so far, but that hasn’t stopped Assange from publically trashing the film, and calling out its star, Benedict Cumberbatch.
It seemed like it was yesterday The Walking Dead returned for a triumphant third season. Now they’re back for number four, and the first reviews are in. The verdict so far?
It was one of the most controversial casting decisions in recent memory, and now it’s fallen apart. Charlie Hunnam is out as Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
A 250 GB, $299.99 version; a 4 GB with Kinect at $299.99; a $399.99 250 GB and Kinect monstrosity. They each include a select pack of less then stellar games. US retailers will offer a $50 rebate, but Microsoft is going to launch the Xbox One in November, and Sony has the PS4. Microsoft could have done better.
This is the most epic YouTube video... ever... or at least as far as we can find today. Because Todd, a Jedi Master with Etch-a-Sketch, has done a complete recap of Star Wars on the shake and bake drawing pad. There are people who have the time and talent to do this and share it with the rest of us. It is truly a great time to be alive.
Alan Taylor, the director of Thor: the Dark World, is also well known for directing a lot of great TV, like Mad Men, The Sopranos, West Wing, Law & Order, and Game of Thrones. Directing the next Thor film could be a major coup for Taylor, because the Norseman superhero is part of the Avengers, and fans should flock to see it, much like being a part of the Avengers boosted Iron Man’s grosses.
People often wonder why horror films have been so popular lately. One of the big reasons is they’re not expensive to make, which is music to Hollywood’s ears. It’s one big reason a lot of horror films glutted the market after the success of Halloween. When a movie costs $320,000, and makes back $40 million in 1978 money, that grabs people’s attention.
We just reported about Jeffrey Katzenberg’s attempt to keep Breaking Bad going as a pay-per-view event, and now comes the news he’s trying to revive Voltron, He-Man, and Rocky and Bullwinkle. As we’ve seen with the recent 3D revival, which Katzenberg spearheaded, once he latches onto an idea, it’s tough to get it out of his teeth.
The reboot of the Fantastic Four is apparently up and running, and speculation has been hitting the net as to who’s going to play who. Josh Trank, director of Chronicle is directing, and Fox is hoping for a March 6, 2015 release date.
