The Mystery of Harry Houdini’s Death

Image
Written By: Terri Pressley In an age where forensic medicine appears capable of solving nearly any crime, it seems that they are now prepared to take on one of the greatest mysteries of all time: The death of Harry Houdini. Although reports at the time of his death indicate that Houdini died from complications of a ruptured appendix, but it has long been speculated that he was actually murdered. Born Erich Weisz on March 24, 1874, in Budapest, Hungary. One of seven children born to a Jewish rabbi and his wife, Erich moved with his family as a child to Appleton, Wisconsin, where he later claimed he was born. When he was 13, Erich moved with his father to New York City, taking on odd jobs and living in a boarding house before the rest of the family joined them. It was there that he became interested in trapeze arts. Houdini held several jobs as a young boy one of which was as a locksmith's apprentice, which might account for his unusual ability to pick just about any lock kno

Dynamite Baby, Grindhouse Dynamite!

Image
Written By: Terri Pressley Grindhouse is an American term for a theater that mainly shows exploitation films. Named after the defunct burlesque theaters located on 42nd Street in New York City where 'bump n' grind' or striptease was featured. Grindhouse films characteristically contain large amounts of sex, violence or bizarre subject matter. One genre of film featured were "roughies" or sexploitation, a mix of sex, violence and sadism. Quality varied, but low budget production values and poor print quality were common. Critical opinions varied regarding typical grindhouse fare, but many films acquired cult following and critical praise. Double, triple, and "all night" bills on a single admission charge often encouraged patrons to spend a long time in the theater. The environment was faithfully captured at the time by the magazine ‘Sleazoid Express’. By the 1980s, home video and cable threatened to make grindhouse obsolete. By the end of the

The Wolf Man (1941)(Universal)

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey In 1941 Curt Siodmak sat down at his desk with the intention of writing a horror story that would draw on Greek Mythology and the belief that somehow a man could transform into an animal, a common legend that ran through the folklore of just about every culture on Earth. Little could he have realized that the script he was about to write, The Wolf Man, would not only have an effect of the future of horror films, but the future of the occult as well. It has always been a common belief that many of the concepts of lycanthropy that were portrayed in the film came from a collection of popular folklore and witchcraft. In fact nothing is further from the truth. Siodmak was responsible for coming up with the design of the pentagram, the werewolf’s vulnerability to silver, and the full moon being the catalyst for the transformation from man to beast all on his own. In fact the legendary poem “Even a man who is pure of heart, and says his prayers by night, may become

Godzilla 2 Monsters: 'Skull Island' Writer Penning Script For Sequel, A Possible King Kong Vs Godzilla Crossover?

Image
From Franchise Herald Max Borenstein is returning to writing duties for "Gozdilla 2". He'll also be writing the script for the forthcoming King Kong movie "Skull Island", leaving fans to speculate if the King Kong versus King Kaiju movie is a possibilty. Previously reported.. Godzilla 2 might well be on its way in production following Godzilla's success, who has passed $500 million at the worldwide box office. But fans of the King Daikaiju are worried that the sequel may be delayed from its original plan after director Gareth Edwards announced his new spin off Star Wars that is due out in December 16, 2016. "Ever since I saw Star Wars I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life - join the Rebel Alliance! I could not be more excited and honored to go on this mission with Lucasfilm," Edwards said in a statement. A legendary picture CEO Thomas Tull is however confident that Edwards' new film will not interfere with Go

See How Much Different Star Wars 7's Stormtroopers Will Look Here

Image
From Cinema Blend The design of the Stormtrooper has enjoyed several tweaks through the first six Star Wars movies, from the clean-cut white-and-black appearance in A New Hope to the color enhancements brought in for the digital prequels and the new Clone Wars TV shows. And if the following images are accurate, the Stormtroopers will look quite different for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, as well. Maybe we’ll have to start calling them "Chrome Troopers," based on the images shared on Indie Revolver, a site that has brought interesting visual scoops over the course of Episode VII’s production schedule. These reportedly are concept images of the design of the new Stormtroopers. They look metallic, with a reflective surface that could look amazing if, say, a lightsaber glow is reflected back in the Trooper’s face. The hood is a new addition for any sort of Stormtrooper that we have seen to date, though the site claims, "The chrome troopers do not actually wear

Ridley Scott Says Blade Runner 2 Script is Ready to Go; No Xenomorphs in Prometheus 2?

Image
From Collider Ridley Scott’s got a lot going on right now, and perhaps too much for those eager to see Blade Runner and Prometheus sequels. Scott is still gunning to make both, but right now he’s got Exodus: Gods and Kings making its way towards a December 12th debut and he’s busy casting up for his next film, The Martian, too. Scott recently revealed hopes to shoot Blade Runner 2 right after The Martian and it seems as though he could pull it off because apparently the script for that one is written and ready to go. Prometheus 2, however, is a different story. That one’s still in the works and there’s a chance that it won’t include any Xenomorphs. Hit the jump for more on both projects. While talking to Yahoo about Exodus: Gods and Kings, Scott noted that he met with Harrison Ford to discuss Blade Runner 2 just before he hurt his leg on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII: “We met the night before he had the accident, so I hope I had nothing to do with it.” Scott also i

Captain Marvel Highlights With Kelly Sue DeConnick

Image
From Marvel Comics The past month has been pretty great for Captain Marvel. First, Marvel announced the release of CAPTAIN MARVEL #10, an over-sized issue celebrating Carol Danvers' 100th issue as a headlining solo hero. The issue, brought to life by writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artists David Lopez and Marcio Takara, lands in stores this December. In addition to his landmark event, "New York" magazine's The Cut recently hailed Captain Marvel's recent promotion and uniform change as one of the most feminist moments in all sci-fi history. "She wasn't the first female Captain — the Pam Grier–inspired Monica Rambeau takes that title," wrote Devon Maloney. "But this time around, female comics fans didn't just rejoice; they rallied and birthed the Carol Corps, a feminist fandom community that has improved the atmosphere for lady-geeks at conventions, online, and beyond." To further celebrate Captain Marvel, we asked writer Kell

Marvel 75: The Scope of Secret Wars Pt. 1

Image
From Marvel Comics 30 years later, the influence of SECRET WARS can still be felt across the comic book industry. Not bad for a series created to sell toys! A celebration of Marvel on its 75th anniversary would not be complete without examining the origins and effects of one of the company’s most important projects of all time: MARVEL SUPER HEROES SECRET WARS. The 12-issue series, which launched in 1984, broke all kinds of new ground. Written by then-Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter and drawn by CAPTAIN AMERICA artist Mike Zeck with Bob Layton fill-ins, SECRET WARS pits a group of heroes and villains against each other on a patchwork planet called Battleworld because The Beyonder, a nearly omnipotent extra-dimensional being, wanted to see the fight up close. The cast included Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, the male members of the Fantastic Four, many of the X-Men, Dr. Doom, Dr. Octopus, Magneto and even Galactus among others.

Introducing a New Sci Fi Spider-Man in Edge of Spider-Verse

From Marvel Comics Spider-Verse inches ever closer as every Spider-Man from every universe prepares for multiversal war against a common foe. Marvel is proud to present EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #3, the next chapter is the blockbuster five-issue limited series showcasing a new creative team and new spider character each issue! Dustin Weaver pulls triple duty as he writes, draws and colors a brand new creation – Dr. Aaron Aikman: Spider-Man! “Unlike Peter, he chose to be Spider-Man,” says Weaver of his new creation, in an interview with Marvel.com. “He did it himself, to become a hero for his city. I guess that says a lot about the character of my Spider-Man. He’s got a big ego and being good at being Spider-Man is a point of pride. He doesn’t struggle with responsibility. He enjoys it. Other than his origin being different, he also has a completely different cast of supporting characters and villains.” READ MORE MORE COMIC BOOK NEWS

No one liked Marvel's porny Spider-Woman. And the company listened.

Image
From VOX Last month, Marvel presented the variant cover for Spider-Woman #1 which featured the superhero in an overtly-sexualized, anatomically silly pose that had her presenting her lady bits to the city below. On Tuesday, the company announced that it had canceled two covers that Milo Manara, the artist responsible for the sexualized Spider-Woman, was slated to draw. Avengers & X-Men: Axis #1 and Thor #2 were both supposed to have Manara variant covers — collector's items that are rarer than standard covers — which will now be created by other artists, Newsrama reported. Manara is known for his erotic comics. And the argument here isn't whether or not Manara should be allowed to draw his erotic art. The question is why Marvel, a colossal comic company that has started to position itself as a diversity and gender equality leader in the industry, commissioned Manara to create the Spider-Woman cover if what it was touting was gender equality.

Bad Robot gives the finger to aerial "leaks" with "Episode VII" Millennium Falcon video

From Yahoo! If you were online last week, you probably saw photos of the Millennium Falcon floating around. Taken "accidentally" during a fly-over — and then later less "accidentally" with a drone — blurry shots of the iconic ship spread faster through the galaxy than a Killik hive. JJ Abrams wasn't about to stand for that. If anyone was going to leak footage of the Millennium Falcon, it was going to be him, dammit! So that's what he did. He even upped the ante with an impressive Easter egg clinging to the underside of the hull. That's no moon… READ MORE NEWS STORIES

Living the Logan Legacy: Tim Seeley & X-23

From Marvel Comics A world without Wolverine leaves everyone in the Marvel Universe reeling. Of all those impacted, however, X-23 wonders if his death defines her fate as well, something writer Tim Seeley explores in October’s DEATH OF WOLVERINE: THE LOGAN LEGACY #2. Seeley tells Marvel.com where he and artist Ariela Kristantina plan to take the former assassin berserker as she copes with the loss of her genetic kin. Marvel.com: What interested you most about getting to write an installment in this critical post-Death of Wolverine limited series, THE LOGAN LEGACY? Tim Seeley: Mostly it was the chance to work with [editors] Mike [Marts] and Katie [Kubert] again, as well as the crew I work with on Batman Eternal, James [Tynion IV], Ray [Fawkes], Kyle [Higgins], and the bonus Marguerite [Bennett]! Plus, I thought it’d be interesting to deal with a Marvel U without Wolverine, since he’s been so prominently in the forefront of comics since I started reading them. Marvel.com: Fr

If you’re like us—and we know that there are many, many of you out there who are—you’re not going to want to miss Batman Eternal this week.

DYNAMITE ANNOUNCES THE DEATH OF APOLLO, A SHOCKING BATTLESTAR GALACTICA EVENT

Image
From Dynamite Entertainment Dynamite Entertainment is proud to reveal one of the biggest secrets of the Battlestar Galactica mythos in the upcoming miniseries event, Battlestar Galactica: The Death of Apollo. Scheduled for release this December, The Death of Apollo reunites the creative team of fan-favorite comic book writer Dan Abnett (one of the architects of the Guardians of the Galaxy phenomenon) and talented artist Dietrich Smith in a heartwrenching chronicle of the iconic Viper pilot's last days -- an event hinted at during official TV series continuity but never before revealed. When Battlestar Galactica first captured the hearts of sci-fi fans in 1978, the bold starfighter pilot Captain Apollo stood out as the central character of the series, defending the fleet from the Cylon menace as deftly portrayed by actor Richard Hatch. After the original series came to an end in 1979, the sequel series Galactica 1980 continued the tale of the nomadic fleet, but set years after

‘Star Wars’ Provides Disney with a ‘Huge Opportunity’

Image
From Variety Walt Disney Studios is quick to admit it doesn’t have an awareness problem with “Star Wars” when it starts releasing new movies, beginning with next year’s “Episode VII.” But it also knows the future of the franchise at the Mouse House, however, relies on getting the film right for fans and newcomers. “This title is very well known out there,” and “the single most important thing is to make sure that this movie is great,” said Walt Disney Studios president Alan Bergman, on Wednesday, at the Bank of America Merrill Lynch 2014 Media, Communications &; Entertainment conference. Disney hasn’t been shy in discussing the impact “Star Wars” will have on the company’s bottom line since buying George Lucas’ Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012. But with a new animated series, “Star Wars Rebels” debuting on Disney XD, an expanded merchandise program, and the first live action film to debut in theaters in 10 years next year, the franchise’s presence at Disney is starting t
