man of steel color

The color in Man of Steel was altered to give it a grittier, darker, vibe that was in line with the successful Dark Knight trilogy. VideoLab restored the natural colors and the result is like a whole different movie.

See the comparison after the break. We think it looks better “in color”, but which version do you prefer?

In case you missed the news over the weekend, Frank Miller is making his return to Batman with a third series to round out a trilogy that started with the classic The Dark Knight Returns. The new series will be titled The Dark Knight: The Master Race.

The series will be co-written by Brian Azzarello. “Artists for the project have yet to be announced”.

After the disaster of The Dark Knight Strikes Again back in 2001, it’s probably safe to say that many fans weren’t clamoring for another sequel. However, with Miller’s influence currently being felt in the Daredevil series on Netflix and the upcoming Batman v Superman, the timing seems right.

Check out the press release after the break along with a tweet from Frank Miller that marks the occasion. It’s his first tweet in five years.

spiderman animated

Sony has announced that Spider-Man will hit theaters in animated form in 2018 with Phil Miller and Chris Lord (The LEGO Movie) at the helm.

As you probably know, Spider-Man’s next film appearance will be for Marvel in Captain America: Civil War which drops in May of 2016. However, the press release below notes that the animated movie will “exist independently” of the live-action projects.

On July 20, 2018, Phil Lord & Christopher Miller the directors of The Lego Movie, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, and 21 and 22 Jump Street, are taking Spider-Man back to his graphic roots with the first-of-its-kind animated Spider-Man feature, it was announced today at CinemaCon by Tom Rothman, chairman of the Sony Pictures Entertainment Motion Picture Group. The film will exist independently of the projects in the live-action Spider-Man universe, all of which are continuing.

Lord & Miller are masterminding the project, writing the treatment and producing the film.

As previously announced, Spider-Man will next appear in a live-action Marvel film from Marvel’s Cinematic Universe (MCU). Sony Pictures will thereafter release the next installment of its $4 billion Spider-Man franchise, on July 28, 2017, a live-action film being produced by Kevin Feige at Marvel and Amy Pascal, who oversaw the franchise launch for the studio 13 years ago. The animated film from Lord & Miller, dated July 20, 2018, has Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach, and Pascal also serving as producers.

That crashed Imperial Star Destroyer sticking up out of the sand in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer may be a little worse for wear, but that hasn’t stopped several people from trying to sell it on Craigslist. One listing reads:

attack on titan trailer

Despite the fact that we’ve experienced a bit of trailer overload this week, the latest from the live-action Attack On Titan still grabbed our attention with a closer look at the giants themselves.

It looks properly horrifying. If this movie isn’t on your radar yet, it should be.

Check it out after the break…

my_talking_elcor_plush_toy_mass_effect_by_sanshee_1-620x789

In case you were wondering, April Fools’ Day was weeks ago—the Talking Elcor Plush actually exists.

If you are unfamiliar with the Mass Effect universe, the Elcor are a massive, generally friendly species found on the Citadel. They are described as being “deliberate” and “conservative” with a monotone voice that appears to lack emotion. Because of this, they tend to describe what would otherwise be expressed with tone and body language.

As the product page states:

“My Talking Elcor voices a love greater than the gravity of Dekuuna and is scientifically engineered for maximum huggability and affection.”

Find out what Elcor says and see the plush in action after the break…
