FLASH GORDON: ZEITGEIST #1

From the blog of Eric Trautmann:

I was recently asked to provide a "commentary track" for Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist #1, which is now available in its entirety on Comic Book Resources.

Basically, it's just some annotations—where I got some of the ideas, why I made some of the choices I made, and so on.

It is also a great way to check it out, if you've been on the fence.

Here's the link; and if you are enjoying the series, please pass on the link as far and wide as possible.

'LEGEND OF TARZAN' TOPS FOREIGN BOX OFFICE WITH $44.7 MILLION
07/24/16 @ 7:49 pm EST
Source: Variety | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


The Legend of Tarzan

“The Legend of Tarzan” swung to the top of foreign box office charts over the weekend, propelled by a solid opening in China. The adventure epic led competitors with $44.7 million from 17,500 screens in 61 markets. The big contributor was the Middle Kingdom, where “The Legend of Tarzan” picked up $27.1 million in its first six days of release.

The attempt to relaunch Edgar Rice Burroughs’ pulp novels about a man raised by apes has floundered domestically, weighed down by its $185 million price tag. The film’s global total now stands at $260.5 million. That’s a respectable gross, but a film of this size needs to do upwards of $400 million to be considered a success, let alone trigger a sequel, which is basically the point of greenlighting a movie with that kind of budget. Warner Bros. is backing the film, which was directed by David Yates, the filmmaker behind most of the Harry Potter movies. It stars Alexander Skarsgård as Tarzan and Margot Robbie as Jane.
SDCC: '24: LEGACY' BOSSES DISCUSS POSSIBLE "INTERSECTION" WITH JACK BAUER
07/24/16 @ 7:47 pm EST
Source: The Hollywood Reporter | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Cast members Corey Hawkins, Miranda Otto and Jimmy Smits, who join original series executive producers Howard Gordon, Manny Coto, and Evan Katz appeared in Hall H.

Fox's forthcoming 24: Legacy centers on a new universe and a new main character (Corey Hawkins) racing against the clock.

However, many of the questions at the show's Comic-Con panel Sunday tied back to the original series' protagonist, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland).

"There may be an intersection with those original characters down the line," executive producer Evan Katz teased Sunday.

"Anything is possible," executive producer Howard Gordon added, noting that Jack and Chloe (Mary Lynn Rajskub) are both alive.

Jack's future was left up in the air at the end of the 2014's 24: Live Another Day. "He's in Russia probably having a terrible time in prison," Katz said with a chuckle.

"I think all of us want to finish that story. We all love that character," Gordon said about another possible iteration of 24centered on Jack Bauer. "Right now, we're not planning that. Right now our plan right now is to tell this story."

While it is structured in the same style as the original series,24: Legacy centers on a new cast of characters led by military hero Eric Carter. His return to the U.S. but the trouble follows him back — which motivates him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks in America.

The idea for the new characters came about partly because "we all felt, Kiefer included, that Jack Bauer had told his story with Live Another Day," Gordon said.

(For his part, Sutherland is still an executive producer on the series and is "way behind it," executive producer Manny Coto said, after having read the pilot script and watched the pilot.)

Hawkins said his character's military background is a big part of what separates him from Jack Bauer. "He's a soldier and he's not used to dealing with… the rules of engagement are different," Hawkins said. "He struggles with that internally in terms of protecting his home and his family but also his responsibility to his country."

The writers said they were inspired specifically by the soldiers who killed Osama bin Laden in 2011 and what happened to them after they returned home. "These essentially superheroes who had to integrate back into society and just didn’t fit," Katz said.

But just like Jack, "he has his flaws and he, over the course of the season, he's going to be forced to make a lot of morally questionable decisions," Hawkins said. "For me, he really is a new hero for a new day."

Although some have labeled 24: Legacy a "reboot," Coto argued otherwise. "This is actually more of an expansion of the 24universe," he said. "This is a new story, a different story being told in the same 24 hour format."

That format will include split screens and onscreen clocks, the producers said, as well as time jump sometime during the first season since there won't be 24 episodes to cover the entire 24 hours in a day.

Also? "A lot of running," Hawkins said.

Once again, the questions circled back to Jack Bauer and whether Hawkins will say his signature phrase, "damnit."

"He might," Hawkins said with a laugh. "It's a long day."

24: Legacy premieres in February on Fox.
SDCC: WILLIAM SHATNER SPEAKS OF HIS LATE FRIEND LEONARD NIMOY AT STAR TREK 50TH ANNIVERSARY CONFERENCE

old spock

Captain Kirk and Spock are two of the most iconic characters ever created, and their relationships can also be held in that same regard. That’s why it is unsurprising that the actors who played them had a special relationship.

Speaking during the Star Trek 50th Anniversary press conference, William Shatner had this to say of the late, great Leonard Nimoy.

"With Leonard, I was thrown into his company because of appearances like this, and movies. We had a lot to do with each other. He was the brother I never had, as we used to say [that] to each other. He had a brother, I didn’t have one. He was my brother."

That’s a lovely sentiment to express to a room full of people.

SDCC: HERE IS HOW TV FLASH GRANT GUSTIN REACTS TO THE JUSTICE LEAGUE FLASH SUIT

Flash214

The suit in The Flash TV show is really quite good, with a nice classic, leathery feel for it.

Yesterday, we got a new suit though, by way of the Justice League trailer, one that looks quite inspired by Injustice.

Well, what does TV Flash think of Movie Flash’s garb? Screen Rant asked Grant Gustin yesterday what he thought of the new suit, something he hadn’t seen yet.

Here is that suit for reference:

He responded:

"Oh sick, I haven’t seen it [is handed phone displaying Justice League image]… They’re completely different. Yeah, I mean I was kind of expecting this, I heard it was going to be kind of like Injustice. I hadn’t seen this yet, what else is out. Sorry I’m scrolling through the whole thing, I haven’t seen this picture. Yeah, that’s sick. Um… yeah, it’s sick. I’m glad it’s really different though [laughs]. Because ours is like a street, vintage feel that I don’t think has been done in any other version of the character."
JAMES GUNN ON WHY MARVEL REVEALED EGO THE LIVING PLANET AT COMIC CON

Ego

To many fans' surprise, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 director James Gunn revealed the true parentage of Peter Quill which has been a large mystery since the final moments of the original film. During the Hall H panel at San Diego Comic Con on Friday though, Marvel Studios proudly revealed Ego the Living Planet as Star-Lord's dad and he's being portrayed by Kurt Russell in the sequel.

After the panel, ComicBook.com had the chance to speak with Gunn to hear all about the sequel to one of the biggest surprise hits in recent years. The director has some tricks up his sleeves to keep the universe feeling fresh when we had back to the world of the Guardians next year.

"The first movie, we set out to create a movie that wasn't what people expected that took them to new places that was both much funnier, much more colorful than they thought it was going to be," Gunn says. "I think this movie's going to be the same way. I think we're giving them things that they don't expect and I think we take twists and turns and the stories, I don't think you're going to expect. It starts with today in revealing this is about Baby Groot and this is about Ego the Living Planet being Quill's father. It's a very unique situation to start with."

Typically, Gunn likes to keep all the secrets he can about his films. The reveal of Quill's father outside of the film comes as a surprise to those who know him at all, however, he has good reason for unveiling the mystery.

"Quite frankly, we knew that people were going to figure it out eventually," Gunn says. "People were gonna start testing the movie, we're gonna start testing trailers, and it this point I thought it was better that we took the reigns in our own hands and revealed Ego to the public. I also think it sends a real important message. This movie isn't about, 'Oh my god, you've gotta go and find out who Peter Quills dad is!' It really is about the story and the relationship that these characters have. We find out about Peter's father pretty close to the beginning of the film so we're not giving some big spoiler away. I think it really isn't about this big surprise, it really is about the story and the emotions that transpire between Peter Quill, his adoptive father Yondu, and his real father Ego who happens to be a Living Planet."

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters May 5, 2017.

BOX OFFICE: 'STAR TREK BEYOND' RACKS UP SOLID $59.6 MILLION, 'LIGHTS OUT' SCORES
07/24/16 @ 4:05 pm EST

Chris Pine

“Star Trek Beyond” debuted to a solid $59.6 million this weekend, signaling that after six television series, 13 movies and 50 years in the pop culture conversation, there’s still life left in one of Hollywood’s most durable franchises.

And there are more intergalactic missions to come. As boon to Trekkies, Paramount took the unusual step of announcing yet another sequel was in the works even before this latest USS Enterprise adventure sailed into theaters. The studio has lined up Chris Hemsworth to reprise his role as Capt. Kirk’s father despite the fact that he was incinerated in a spaceship disaster in a previous film. In science-fiction, it seems, death is merely a temporary predicament.

“You can count on one hand the brands that have this kind of longevity and viability over time,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. “These characters are so clearly defined and people just respond to their sense of camaraderie.”

The latest chapter in the “Star Trek” saga performed respectably, but its opening is down from the two previous films in the series. “Star Trek Beyond” couldn’t match the $70.2 million launch of 2013’s “Star Trek Into Darkness” nor could it top the $75.2 million bow of 2009’s “Star Trek.” Moreover, with a price tag of $185 million, plus tens of millions in promotional spending, the film needs to perform well overseas if it’s going to make a profit.
