Looks better than the Dragonball trailer!

YouTube user WormyT has created a full trailer for a live-action "Thundercats" movie by compiling scenes from various films featuring Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman and Vin Diesel among others. Looks really good, gotta love fanfilms right? I put this one up to Batman:Dead End in terms of quality and editing.

Also, the new Dragonball trailer leaked.. I'm only wondering how this will turn out. Seriously. I am not liking this at all, and once you watch you'll understand why.

Now this is what you call a reboot..


Here's hoping it's as good as X2!

Well it’s been four years as of today since I first started this blog. When I first posted I was at a point in my life where I was at a sort of crossroads - I had just finished high school, was trying to sort out what I wanted to do in my life and all the while I was with someone who was special to me at the time, who had gotten me back into comics after a long time break in reading. It seems almost like it was yesterday.. I really thought I wouldn't have spare time, or just gotten tired of it, but I feel more motivated than ever to stick with it. I've been so busy lately, but I'd like to at least be able to post once a day, as soon as everything's been sorted out.. again, I'd like to say..

Thanks for reading CI!

Singer Beyoncé Knowles is interested in play Wonder Woman on the silver screen and has met with representatives at DC Comics and Warner Bros. to discuss donning the red, white and blue bathing suit on screen, she says.

"After doing these roles that were so emotional I was thinking to myself, 'OK, I need to be a superhero,'" Beyoncé tells the Times. "Although, when you think about the psychology of the heroes in the films these days, they are still a lot of work, of course, and emotional. But there's also an action element that I would enjoy."

My opinion? I think she'd be great for the role, but there are folks out there who would openly criticize the fact that Beyoncé is African-American, similar to the backlash against Jessica Alba (who is Mexican-American) when she was first reported to have taken the role as Invisible Girl in the Fantastic Four movies. Hopefully people can look past this, if she is in fact chosen.

Just checked Stan Lee's Myspace, and found this post for a really good cause..

Hey Heroes,

We’ve figured out a great way to raise money for a charitable cause where you not only help the cause but you also get something in return. POW! Entertainment, is sponsoring Junko Kobayashi, who will be running a 26.2 mile marathon, in Honolulu to help the fight against AIDS! How about that!? Junko needs to raise $6,500 dollars by the new extended deadline, October 15th and with your help, we can do it! We’re giving away, that’s right – giving away official authentic, studio movie posters; the real ones direct from the studios, the same ones that they use in promoting their movies! You can check out some of the posters below. (*WE JUST GOT NEW IRON MAN POSTERS.*)

So here's how it works, if you donate a minimum of $50 you can receive one movie poster. If you donate a minimum of $100 not only will you get a poster but it will be signed by me, your man Stan. If you happened to really like the posters and you want more, then for $150 you’ll get 2 posters with one signed and for $200 you’ll get 2 posters with both signed and so on. I think you get the picture. And…don’t forget to get those extra ones as gifts for your friends and family. Of course any contribution you can make would mean a great deal.
Now, all you have to do is visit the official site for full details and donations, by Clicking Here & Click the DONATE NOW button.Or visiting my myspace page at: http://www.myspace.com/stanleemyspace.

Below are all the posters available..

Down these mean streets a man must come. A hero born, murdered, and born again. When a Rookie cop named Denny Colt returns from the beyond as The Spirit, a hero whose mission is to fight against the bad forces from the shadows of Central City. The Octopus who kills anyone unfortunate enough to see his face who has other plans. He's going to wipe out the entire city. The Spirit tracks this cold hearted killer from the city's rundown warehouses, to the damp catacombs, to the windswept waterfront all the while facing a bevy of beautiful women who either want to seduce, love or kill the masked crusader.

IGN posted a video few days ago with Frank Miller speaking on the movie, and some behind the scenes shots, which you can see after the break. The Spirit, starring Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson & Eva Mendes is scheduled for release on Christmas Day, 2008.

Heavy Rain: The Origami Killer is an upcoming video game, developed by French studio Quantic Dream for the PS3. The game is being directed by Quantic Dream's founder and CEO David Cage. The game is scheduled to be released in 2009. Recently the upcoming game was demoed at the Micromania Games Show 2008 in Paris. Looks awesome to say the least, and I've personally waited a long time for this game and it looks well worth it!

Gamekyo recorded over 20 minutes of the demonstration, which you can watch right after the break. Here's what David Cage, who demonstrated the game, had to say:

In this demo, the player takes the role of a young journalist who is investigating on several girls' disappearances, she goes to a house of a taxidermist who is suspected of killing these women. In this presentation, the Producer of the game shows 2 different ways to finish this demo, there are lots of different ways to get through the story.

It seems Capcom has this new contest, where you can draw and submit your SFIV artwork and if it's picked as the winner, it'll appear on the inside cover of the game! Check it out here.

Terrence Howard says he was surprised to learn that Don Cheadle would replace him in "Iron Man 2."

"It was the surprise of a lifetime," the actor and musician told National Public Radio on Tuesday. "There was no explanation, (the contract) just up and vanished."

Howard said he read news reports that money was the issue, saying the contracts he signs apparently "aren't worth the paper that they're printed on sometimes."

Cheadle assumes the role of James Rhodes, a character that becomes Iron Man's sidekick War Machine in the comics, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Robert Downey Jr. will reprise his role as weapons mogul Tony Stark.

G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, coming August 7, 2009!
