CAPTAIN AMERICA to begin shooting

Director Joe Johnston has revealed to Fangoria in an interview about his being brought in at the last-minute as the new director of The Wolfman to replace departing director Mark Romanek that Marval Studis‘s is looking at a June 2010 start for principle photography on the upcoming movie The First Avenger: Captain America

Various names were mentioned as Romanek’s replacement, among them John Landis, Frank Darabont and CASINO ROYALE’s Martin Campbell, but it was Joe Johnston, director of JURASSIC PARK III and THE ROCKETEER, who got the nod. The clock, however, was ticking. Principal photography was now less than four weeks away. “By the time I got on a plane and arrived, it was three,” recalls Johnston, speaking from the art department of THE FIRST AVENGER: CAPTAIN AMERICA, which he’s readying for a June start. “But at that point, what kind of difference can a week make?

Captain America was killed in 2007 by a sniper’s bullet but this being the Marvel universe he was reborn, starting on July 1 2009 in a five comic book series titled Captain America: Reborn.

Rising from the dead after being killed off over two years ago, Captain America is being resurrected by Marvel Comics.

After close to 60 years in print, Marvel Comics killed off Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, in 2007, one of its most famous and beloved superheroes, amid a controversial story line.

He fought and triumphed over Hitler, Tojo, international Communism and a host of super-villains, but a sniper’s bullet cut Captain America down in 2007, a move that shocked many of his fans.

In the comic series, Rogers was to stand trial for defying a superhero registration law passed after a hero’s tragic mistake causes a 9/11-like event. Marvel said the comic story line was intentionally written as an allegory to current real-life issues like the Patriot Act, the war on terror and September 11.

Rogers eventually surrenders to police. He is later mortally wounded as he climbs the courthouse steps. It was a violent and strange end for an American hero and icon.

The primary shooter, Crossbones — working under the orders of Captain America’s longtime nemesis, the Red Skull — was caught. The identity of a second shooter is revealed in issue 600, which goes on sale Monday.

Many felt Captain America’s death in 2007 was symbolic of the time. And his return now?

“The tenor of the world now is when we’re at a point where we want to believe in heroes. Someone who can lead the way,” said Breevort. “It just feels like the right time.”

INCEPTION is, I’m not sure what it is

In case you didn’t see Sherlock Holmes this weekend or catch the French version of this video, Warner Bros has released an English, high-resolution trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Inception.  The studio has kept details surprisingly secret for the science fiction story, so please pardon the lack of explanation for the eyegasm of random images and confusing dialogue.  I honestly have no idea what’s happening either.  I can’t wait to find out.

If I didn’t know any better I’d think Christopher Nolan is taking quae’s from Terry Gilliam because this trailer makes no sence and  that would be Gillian’s territory. I sure the Dark Knight director can’t do any wrong at least until his next movie doesn’t make a zillion dollars. I’m pretty sure Inception won’t be that movie people will go to see it because of Christopher is directiong Leonardo DiCaprio is staring in it. Hay at least the Trailer is in english

Inception Trailer 2


Little has been revealed of the plotline for Supreme Commander 2 as of October 2009. A trailer for the game released at the Entertainment Software Association’s 2009 Electronic Entertainment Expo indicates that the story takes place twenty-five years after the conclusion of Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, and centers on the breakdown of peaceful relations that the United Earth Federation, the Aeon Illuminate, and the Cybran Nation have experienced during that time, implying that war has been instigated through the deceit of some unrevealed party.

BOOK OF ELI: Behind the Scenes Featurette

In the not-too-distant future, some 30 years after the final war, a solitary man walks across the wasteland that was once America. Empty cities, broken highways, seared earth-all around him, the marks of catastrophic destruction. There is no civilization here, no law. The roads belong to gangs that would murder a man for his shoes, an ounce of water…or for nothing at all.

But they’re no match for this traveler.

A warrior not by choice but necessity, Eli (Denzel Washington) seeks only peace but, if challenged, will cut his attackers down before they realize their fatal mistake. It’s not his life he guards so fiercely but his hope for the future; a hope he has carried and protected for 30 years and is determined to realize. Driven by this commitment and guided by his belief in something greater than himself, Eli does what he must to survive-and continue.

Only one other man in this ruined world understands the power Eli holds, and is determined to make it his own: Carnegie (Gary Oldman), the self-appointed despot of a makeshift town of thieves and gunmen. Meanwhile, Carnegie’s adopted daughter Solara (Mila Kunis) is fascinated by Eli for another reason: the glimpse he offers of what may exist beyond her stepfather’s domain.

But neither will find it easy to deter him. Nothing-and no one-can stand in his way. Eli must keep moving to fulfill his destiny and bring help to a ravaged humanity. Official synopsis


The mystery still surrounds this movie what is this book and why would anyone want it, let alone fight for it. It could be the whole religious thing and in a world with no hope thats all it might take to have people follow you but it doesn’t seem like Eli whats followers or does he. Is he setting himself up as the great savior carrying around a book full of blank pages. Is there really even a book

The Book of Eli is in theaters January 15, 2010.

FROZEN: Don’t Ever Go Near a Chair Lift Agian

That First Step is a Big One

A typical day on the slopes turns into a chilling nightmare for three snowboarders when they get stranded on the chairlift before their last run. As the ski patrol switches off the night lights, they realize with growing panic that they’ve been left behind dangling high off the ground with no way down. With the resort closed until the following weekend and frostbite and hypothermia already setting in, the trio is forced to take desperate measures to escape off the mountain before they freeze to death. Once they make their move, they discover with horror that they have much more to fear than just the frigid cold. As they combat unexpected obstacles, they start to question if their will to survive is strong enough to overcome the worst ways to die?

As a former skier I have traveled on those chairs countless times and have wondered what if, because believe me if there is a wind and depending on the temperature your chances of lasting the night aren’t good and if you have to jump well pray for lots of powder, I guess you could try to get to the nearest support pole. I really don’t like movies were people could freeze to death it hits to close to home for me. But I can certainly relate.

Frozen will be having it’s World Premier at  the 2010 Sundance Film Festival as part of the Park City at Midnight lineup. The Offical website is or you can follow the movie on Twitter or Facebook Director Adam Green can be followed of Twitter


BAYONETTA Casting Spells and Getting Naked


When I first saw this game I didn’t know what to think. There was a slick beauty to it not something  you associate with a new intellectual propertie, this only comes about in the second or third game in the series, Assassn’s Creed II and Uncharted 2 are good examples of this. It also reminded me of another game that looked and felt very similar, Devil My Cry. It was no great surprise them when I heard that the team behind this game also did Devil My Cry including director Hideki Kamiya,

She is a Witch

Bayonetta takes place in Vigrid, a fictional city in Europe. The titular character is a witch who shapeshifts and uses various firearms, along with magical attacks she performs with her own hair, to dispatch her foes. She possesses four pistols—two hand-held, and one attached to each heel—and has also been pictured with shotguns, rocket launchers, a glowing whip with a cobra’s head at the tip of it, and a two-handed katana. Bayonetta faces angelic and warrior-like enemies that confront and challenge her Her long hair which covers her body can become a weapon to attack, but once this happens she is left with not much to hide.

Hair Hath No Fury Like

Hair Hath No Fury Like

I have a review here from IGN that pretty well sums up what I have said and my others to

When I say “action game,” I refer of course to games like Devil May Cry, God of War and Ninja Gaiden. I think most gamers can agree that all these titles do similar things (despite their notable differences), so it’s safe for me to compare them all and claim that Bayonetta is my favorite  [more]

Featurette “The Creatures of SOLOMON KANE” goes behind the scenes

Vanquish Evil

Solomon Kane is a fictional character created by the pulp-era writer Robert E. Howard. A 16th century Puritan, Solomon Kane is a somber-looking man who wanders the world with no apparent goal other than to vanquish evil in all its forms. His adventures, published mostly in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, often take him from Europe to the jungles of Africa and back

The Creatures of

Howard described him as a somber and gloomy man of pale face and cold eyes, all of it shadowed by a slouch hat. He is dressed entirely in black and his weaponry consists of a rapier, a dagger, and a brace of flintlock pistols. During one of his latter adventures his friend N’Longa, an African shaman, gave him a juju staff that served as a protection against evil, but could easily be wielded as an effective weapon. It is revealed in another story, “The Footfalls Within,” that this is the mythical Staff of Solomon, a talisman older than the Earth and unimaginably powerful, much more so than even N’Longa knew. In the same adventure with N’Longa, Kane is seen using a musket as well. Source: Wikipedia

Solomon Kane is directed by Michael J. Bassett The movie tells the origins of Solomon Kane and is hoped to be the first of a trilogy of movies and stars James Purefoy Here is one  review of the movie

SOLOMON KANE was really not what I expected. It’s far, far better than I could have hoped. As it stands, its pretty unique in the sword and sorcery movies simply because it has proper drama, great performances and some nasty intense action along with all the traditional sword fights, magical monsters and running, jumping and chasing [more]
