REVIEW OF: FLASH GORDON: ZEITGEIST #1
12/02/11 @ 2:44 pm EST
Source: IGN | Categories: Flash Gordon Zeitgeist | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

The savior of the universe finds a new home at Dynamite.

by Jesse Schedeen

Given how many pulp heroes Dynamite has snatched up the rights for in recent years, it's really not surprising to see Flash Gordon make the jump. And while Flash is certainly no stranger to comics, he looks to have found a good home. Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist is crammed full of pulpy goodness along with just the right dash of modern enhancements to the characters.

It's clear from the start that Alex Ross and Eric Trautmann aren't setting out to reinvent the wheel with this book. The basic plot of issue #1 closely follows the traditional origin story fans will know from the original comic strip or the movie. The writers even insert Ming's right-hand man Klytus into the comic mythology with an opening that closely mirrors the film. By the end of the issue, Earth is facing imminent destruction courtesy of Ming the Merciless, and Flash, Dale, and Dr. Zarkov are swept up into a larger world of pulpy sci-fi adventure.

DEADPOOL

20th Century Fox’s Deadpool is bigger than anyone thought possible. After posting the biggest opening day in February with $47.5M, the Marvel character also scored the second biggest day ever for the month with an estimated $41.88M. This now raises Deadpool‘s 3-day take to $133.4M, making it the second best debut ever for the first installment of a superhero property behind Disney/Marvel’s The Avengers ($207.4M). The Tim Miller-directed movie’s 4-day is now projected at $151M per industry calculations; some studios have it as high as $155M over FSSM. Typically fanboy films are frontloaded seeing drops of at least a third in their second day. Deadpool dipped -12%. This title is hitting some sort of zeitgeist with moviegoers.

Fox also owns the No. 2 spot with DreamWorks Animation’s Kung Fu Panda 3 which drew $7.78M on Saturday, +99% over Friday on track for a FSS of $19.85M and a FSSM of $25.98M. Pic will stand with $100.2M by the end of Monday.

New Line/MGM’s How to Be Single is meeting its Warner Bros. projection in the low $20M over four-days with $21.6M and a 3-day of $18.9M in third.

The next stop on the time-traveling adventure of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" is 1986, with members of the squad captured and imprisoned in a Russian gulag in the midst of the Cold War. In 15 new images released by The CW, the team does not seem to love the '80s -- especially Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) and Atom (Brandon Routh), both seen in chains.
