Sony and Paramount Skip San Diego Comic Con

Are we missing something?  Well, yes, apparently, according to Variety, if you’re going to San Diego Comic Con this year.   Marvel, Sony and Paramount to be precise. The studios say “It wasn’t a knock against Comic-Con.  The film cycles just didn’t allow it.” Facing the competition of “Star Wars”, “The Hunger Games”, “Fantastic Four” and DC Entertainment’s entire lineup of movies, it seems that Sony and Paramount felt they…

An LGBT Geek At Phoenix Comicon

So in my previous post, as we remember, I was going to my first Geek LGBT panels at Phoenix Comicon 2015 armed with pen and paper, (yes I really am that ‘old’).  I was going to take notes like it was finals week and I hadn’t studied all semester.  This article about the LGBT Geek community was going to rock! First up was Dr. Who for LGBT Whovians! Sadly the…

Fox Pulls All Previous Versions of Fantastic Four From Digital Networks

In a move that is clearly meant to make you forget the previous attempts by Fox to make a Fantastic Four movie, Fox has had all digital copies pulled from online sites such as Amazon and Itunes (although you can still purchase the dvds and rent the dvd from Netflix), in advance of the August release of the newly rebooted Fantastic Four. Fox pulled the movies “so as not to…

"Who You Gonna Call?" Chris Hemsworth it Would Seem

Director Paul Feig tweeted “Our receptionist” with the hashtag #whoyougonnacall and a picture of Chris Hemsworth yesterday. He joins the female driven cast of the reboot of Ghostbusters as their receptionist, the part originated by Annie Potts in 1984.  I wonder if they’re going to try and recapture that charming, socially awkward flirting that she and Egan had in the original. The reboot of Ghostbusters is due out July 22,…

Marvel to Skip San Diego Comic Con 2015

No one will be being asked to bow before the might of Loki in Hall H this year.  In fact no one from the Marvel Universe will be there at San Diego Comic Con at all. James Gunn has previously said that he didn’t expect an appearance at SDCC, when asked whether he would be there to promote Guardians of the Galaxy 2. It is believed that Marvel Studios is going…

Martin Freeman Joins the Cast of Captain America: Civil War

“From his roles as Bilbo Baggins and Doctor Watson to Tim in The Office, Martin’s range from the dramatic to the comedic has consistently impressed us,” said Marvel’s Kevin Feige in a statement. “We couldn’t be more honored or excited to have such a talented actor join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.” Now comes the fun of trying to guess what character Freeman will play in the upcoming movie! Captain America:…

First Pic of Jubilee and Jean Grey from the Set of Xmen Apocalypse

Bryan Singer has posted a picture on his Instagram of Sophie Turner as Jean Grey and Lana Condor as Jubilee from the set of Xmen Apocalypse. I love that they kept the yellow jacket for Jubilee – even if it isn’t the classic trench coat. Xmen Apocalypse is scheduled for release May 27 2016.

Chris Evans reveals Avengers 3 to Begin Filming in 2016

While on press tour promoting Age of Ultron, Captain America star Chris Evans revealed in an interview with Esquire that Avengers Infinity War will begin filming in 2016. “We start [Captain America: Civil War] in a couple weeks, and then that shoots until August or something like that. August or September. Then I’ve got some downtime and I can do with it as I please. I don’t know if I…

Disney Announces 2015-2017 Movie Lineup at Cinema Con

Disney doesn’t need to dress to impress.  With a bare bones presentation that didn’t boast any stars, Walt Disney Studios EVP of Theatrical Distribution, Dave Hollis, got right to the point.  Trailers of “Inside Out”, “Tomorrowland” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” were all a feast for the eyes, but for those who need to plan their movie dates out 2 years in advance, your pocket schedule is now full….
