Abrams Officially Writing and Directing STAR WARS Episode IX

Disney and Lucasfilm have officially announced via a press release on StarWars.com that THE FORCE AWAKES director JJ Abrams will be returning to write and direct STAR WARS Episode IX. Ummm, ok. Cool? To those not privy, the film’s original director Colin Trevorrow (JURASSIC WORLD) recently left the project due to alleged “friction” with the rest of the team. The pattern I’m seeing here is if you don’t get along with Kathleen Kennedy, you gotta go. Period. It appears that getting a dream job directing a STAR WARS film can quickly backfire. Walking on egg shells comes to mind. That...

New STAR WARS REBELS 4th and Final Season Trailer

STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS definitely got cut short due to Disney acquiring the rights. And while I’m still a little bent out of shape about it all, the silver lining is we got REBELS. It’s a fantastic show and watching this fourth and final season will be bittersweet. I’ll be sad to see it go, but my brain is working overtime thinking of what the next animated project will be. Want my two cents? I think they should properly bridge the gap between A NEW HOPE and THE FORCE AWAKENS featuring the iconic “Original Trilogy” cast. Fingers crossed....

Please Release This FIST OF THE NORTH STAR Video Game Stateside

Sega recently announced a brand new FIST OF THE NORTH STAR video game based on the popular manga and anime of the same name. For those not privy, FIST OF THE NORTH STAR is a popular manga, later adapted into an anime, starring a bad ass warrior named Kenshiro who is on a quest to find his long lost finance. It’s a post-apocalyptic epic where water is scarce, gangs rule the roads, and blood splatters the landscape as a result of insanely choreographed fight sequences. It’s kind of like MAD MAX but on steroids. The new game will be...

PLAYER UNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS Coming To Xbox One Late 2017!

While I definitely admire a good gaming PC, I’m a console gamer through and through. I love plopping my ass on the couch, playing on whatever oversized and overpriced TV I have, and not worrying about constantly upgrading and refining my gaming machines. I’m a simple man, with simple needs. That said, I’ve been completely envious of those playing PLAYER UNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS via Steam over the past few months. The game looks so damn fun and I’ve caught myself watching game clips on youtube into the wee hours of the night. Luckily, game consoles these days are pretty damn...

Top 5 Comic Book Picks For July 2017

1. DARTH VADER #3 / Marvel Comics Written by Charles Soule / Art by Giuseppe Camuncoli The new DARTH VADER ongoing comic is so great. I know issues #1 and #2 took the top spot last month, but I just couldn’t resist putting it here again because it’s THAT good. While the previous ongoing VADER book was set in-between A NEW HOPE and EMPIRE, this one begins just moments after REVENGE OF THE SITH. Darth Vader has been born and this book explores his new path as he comes to terms with his tragic past, bows before the Emperor,...

IT Movie Trailer Already Scarier Than Most Films I’ve Seen

Can you believe it’s been 27 years since the IT mini-series aired on television? Some of you reading this may not have even been alive! Based on author Stephen King’s 1000+ page novel, IT centers around a rag tag crew of 7 pre-teens haunted by a demon who appears in physical form as the clown Pennywise. If you were never scared of clowns, IT probably changed that. I think a good way to put it is to say  IT did to clowns what JAWS did to sharks…made us all fucking scared. For a detailed account of exactly why I...

New ATARIBOX Console Has Potential

Information about Atari’s new “Ataribox” is sparse yet intriguing leading me to believe they’re just throwing out a basic concept and letting the online community tell them what they want. Sounds smart. At this point, all I really know about this new “console” is that it’s coming in 2017 and offers a few sleek design options including a classic woodgrain option and a more modern black and red version. That’s about it. My guess is that this will play classic Atari games and feature the ability to download new and potentially exclusive newer versions of the classic games we...

Guillermo del Toro’s THE SHAPE OF WATER Movie Trailer

Whenever director Guillermo del Toro is sitting in the director’s chair, it’s a good idea to pay close attention. I mean come on, the dude is responsible for BLADE 2, HELLBOY, HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY, PAN’S LABYRINTH, PACIFIC RIM, and CRIMSON PEAK. SO yeah, I’m pretty damn excited about del Toro’s upcoming THE SHAPE OF WATER. From master story teller, Guillermo del Toro, comes THE SHAPE OF WATER – an other-worldly fairy tale, set against the backdrop of Cold War era America circa 1963. In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is...
