Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo 2014

Image
by Armand Vaquer Above, the gang's all here for the Godzilla/Gamera panel. Another successful Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo is in the record books. The convention runs through Sunday, but this was it for me this year. It was a good way to celebrate Halloween. Our panel on the 60th anniversary of Godzilla, the 50th anniversary of Gamera and other assorted topics (such as Godzilla 2014) were discussed by the panel as well as the audience members. The number of audience members were down from last year. We were in a much bigger room and, which is the unfortunate part, further away form the stairs, elevators and escalators. The problem was probably caused by the scheduling error in which the Comikaze organizers had to reschedule us an hour earlier as they had our moderator, Jessica Tseang scheduled on two panels at the same time. I am guessing that this was the only meeting room available. Still, we had an enthusiastic audience and a good discussion. All agreed that the Leg

Carrie (1976) - Did You Know?

Image
From IMDB Ever the stickler for authenticity, Sissy Spacek insisted that she - not a double - be the one whose hand shoots up out of Carrie's grave during Sue Snell's nightmare sequence. The pig's blood dumped on Sissy Spacek was karo syrup and food coloring, although she was willing to have real blood dumped on her. While filming the bloody prom sequence, Sissy Spacek's trailer was parked behind the set. After being covered in fake blood, for continuity purposes, Spacek refused to wash the effect off. She elected instead to sleep in her bloody clothes for three days of filming. In the last scene of the film, Amy Irving's outburst so terrified her mother Priscilla Pointer, that she screamed out "Amy" instead of "Sue." She had never seen her daughter that hysterical and called out her real name in concern. However, the loud ending music covered the mistake. Brian De Palma had to dump a scene from the novel where Carrie blows up petrol

Salem's Lot - Did You Know?

Image
From IMDB Stephen King was inspired to write the book when he had his English class read 'Dracula', and became curious about what would happen if vampires came to America, specifically in a small town. Director George A. Romero was originally approached to direct a feature film version, but after the announcements of John Badham's Dracula (1979) and Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre (1979), Warner Bros. decided to turn Salem's Lot into a TV mini-series. Romero dropped out, feeling he wouldn't be able to make the film the way he wanted to with the restrictions of network television. The now classic scene of the young vampire floating in the air, tapping on his brother's window, was shot in reverse to give it an eerie effect. The exterior for the Marsten House, the film's icon, was actually a full-scale facade built upon a smaller preexisting hill-top house. In total the facade cost the production an estimated $100,000 dollars to build. Af

He remembers how his young daughter Edith tearfully asked her father to make sure she never becomes a vampire, something that Quincy had promised. He tells Dracula about a time earlier still in 1945, when the vampire lord attacked Quincy and his wife Elizabeth at a theater. It was that night that Dracula threw Quincy from a the balcony, crippling him and then making off with his wife. Quincy would relate to how the police found his wife two days later half drained of her blood. Quinc

HALLOWEEN SPOOKLIGHT: MAN-THING

Image
From Marvel Comics One of Marvel's most fearsome creatures trudged his way out of the swamp in the pages of SAVAGE TALES #1 thanks to Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway and artist Gray Morrow. The 1971 comic debuted the mysterious Man-Thing who soon set up shop in ADVENTURE INTO FEAR with issues #10 through 19. A monster comic reprint book up to that point, FEAR soon gave way to the silent, skulking protector of the Nexus of All Realities. ADVENTURE INTO FEAR #16 featured a story written by Steve Gerber with artwork by Val Mayerik. Much like his work in the pages of HOWARD THE DUCK, Gerber used the medium of comics to tell stories about some of the injustices going on in the world. In the case of “Cry of the Native,” which hit stands in 1973, the story revolves around a group of Native Americans defending their land against construction workers tasked with building there. In true Gerber fashion, the issue remains as complicated and diverse as real life with both sides expr

HALLOWEEN SPOOKLIGHT: DRACULA

Image
From Marvel Comics Technically, Dracula entered the Marvel Universe with 1951’s SUSPENSE #7, but the vampire lord really made a splash in 1972 with TOMB OF DRACULA #1. Thanks to a slackening of the Comics Code Authority rules, comics could finally feature monsters in the title again, hence the man formerly known as Vlad scoring a new series penned by Gerry Conway with art by Gene Colan. TOMB OF DRACULA started off like many a horror classic with people driving around in the rain looking for a creepy castle. In this case, the group consisted of Frank Drake, his girlfriend Jean, and his friend Clifton who also happened to be Jean’s ex. Heading to Transylvania, Frank planned to cash in on a family castle that allegedly belonged to the legendary vampire Count Dracula. After arriving at the spooky locale, the shifty Clifton took a tumble through some old floorboards that inevitably lead him to Dracula’s tomb. Having removed the stake sticking out of the skeleton’s chest, Clifton in

HALLOWEEN SPOOKLIGHT: MORBIUS

Image
From Marvel Comics Though super heroes take center stage in the Marvel Universe, the darker corners house some of the creepiest monsters around. Morbius the Living Vampire remains one of the more complicated ghouls of the bunch. A scientist-turned-blood sucker, the character made his first appearance with AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #101 in October of 1971 thanks to writer Roy Thompson and artist Gil Kane. Appropriately, the issue included a variety of classic horror references including a general mad scientist vibe and specific mentions of Frankenstein, Dracula and Alfred Hitchcock. Morbius first popped up as a scared, strange looking man traveling on a ship suspected of killing the captain halfway through the issue. He avoided the angry mob until night set in along with his vampiric powers and then spent the entire eve quenching his thirst on every last one of them. Feeling guilty, Morbius dove into the ocean and wound up sleeping through the day in Dr. Curt Connors’ house in the H

Godzilla Was Very Different 60 Years Ago

Image
From The Wall Street Journal TOKYO—Godzilla has come a long way in 60 years. When the original film opened in Japan on Nov. 3, 1954, Godzilla was made from bamboo, cloth, paper, wire and whatever was available, says Eizo Kaimai, the 85-year-old chairman of Kaimai Productions. This was long before digital wizards came along to create a T-Rex or Transformer, before Star Wars, Jurassic Park or Avatar. “Back then, when we first created monster movies, we didn’t even have plastic or urethane material available,” says Mr. Kaimai, one of the few surviving members from the team that created the first Godzilla film. “It was hard work.” This isn’t to say that the special-effects team for the new Gareth Edwards-directed “Godzilla,” which opened world-wide this year, had it easy. According to London-based Moving Picture Company, which rebooted the monster, creating the living creature from concept artwork took seven months, working up his body—from the underlying bones, fat and muscle

Halloween Flashback: "KISS Meets the Phantom of the Park"

Image
From Movie Pilot In 1978, there were two things on the minds of boys ages 5 to 16. OK, maybe three. They were KISS, "Star Wars," and girls. You pick the order they were in for you personally. I was 6, so girls really hadn't figured into the equation yet. Girls were on boys' minds for the obvious reasons. "Star Wars" was popular because it had just been released the year before and blew everyone away with its groundbreaking, never-before-seen special effects and imagery. After only being around since 1973, KISS was the hottest band in the world because of their shockingly explosive on-stage spectacle and look. They had already released several best-selling studio, live, and solo albums. They had t-shirts, stickers, belt buckles, and everything else you can think of with their logo and likenesses plastered on them. The band even had a comic book that featured the members as superheroes that was published through Marvel Comics. Their manager, Bill Auco

Wonder Woman: Can You Find the Fake?

Image
From DC Comics Today, Wonder Woman fans will be treated to an explosive finale that’s been over three years in the making, as Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang wrap up their acclaimed run on the title with WONDER WOMAN #35. Kicking off in September, 2011, with the launch of The New 52, Azzarello and Chiang have brought a surprising level of mythology to the book, expanding Diana’s supporting cast dramatically, adding in a dose of New Gods and re-envisioning some classic villains in astonishing new ways (most notably, Ares, who is far from the giant warrior of books past). It’s been an amazing run. One that has brought new fans to the comic, while invigorating the title for longtime fans. Over the years, Diana’s battle with her family and the monstrous First Born has taken her to some unexpected places, and played out in some truly surprising ways. So surprising, in fact, that even devoted readers may have a hard time remembering some of the more unusual twists. Four of the five

NYCC 2014: Spider-Gwen

From Marvel Comics Debuting in the second issue of EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE, Gwen Stacy: Spider-Woman immediately developed a passionate cult following.

Marvel.com caught up with writer Jason Latour, artist Robbi Rodriguez, and colorist Rico Renzi who revealed some of what they love about Spider-Gwen as well as what they have percolating for the book.

Jason Latour: Well, there just seemed to be this groundswell from day one, and that was certainly a little surprising. It changed my expectations a little, but as a writer you learn pretty quickly that you can’t really control how things are going to be received. All you can really do is focus on creating a story that speaks to you and your collaborators and just hope that you’re all excited abo

Pacific Rim 2 & Godzilla Crossover Rumors Abound

Image
From JBGNews There have been a few recent giant monster movies worthy of your attention, and two of those are Pacific Rim and the new Godzilla. Both films were incredible in their own rights, but what would make them better? Apparently, the answer to that question is a crossover between Pacific Rim 2 and the new Godzilla. Both films are within the same genre – monster movies – and both did quite well at the box office, so it would make sense to tie them in together at some point. Legendary Pictures, at one point, admitted to the world that Godzilla and Pacific Rim would be completely separate from each other. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore, as new rumors have been spreading around the Internet, claiming the two will join together at some point in the near future. The Movie News Hound reports that the success seen in Godzilla 2014 and positive reaction towards Pacific Rim 2 has Legendary Pictures considering a crossover between the two movies. Unfortunately,

Batman V Superman: ‘Wonder Woman’ Origin Revealed?

Image
From S creen Rant When Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel hit theaters, audiences didn’t need to notice the Wayne Enterprises logo within the film to know that DC and Warner Bros. had created a Superman universe in which a character like Batman could exist. Those suspicions were later confirmed when Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice was announced, with Snyder having shown that the story of a superpowered alien really could be cast in a grounded, rooted, believable light. But the confidence of even optimistic fans was somewhat shaken when it was announced that Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) would be featured as well. Aliens are one thing, but a mystical princess from a hidden island of Amazons, worshipers of the ancient Greek deities – even clothed in some classical armor – is a stretch. Now, Diana’s movie origin has become clearer, casting the princess as the daughter of Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons, and Zeus, ruler of the gods. There’s a chance that some may not be familiar with the st

Flash 101: Catching Up with the Flashes

Image
From DC Comics With an eagerly awaited new show premiering next week on The CW, it’s safe to say the Flash is more popular than he’s ever been before. Considering we’re talking about a character who has remained an icon of comics for over 70 years, that’s really saying something. Yet, while many people may recognize who the Flash is, the character’s world and history aren’t generally as well known as those of Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman. So to fill you in on a few of the basics, we thought we’d whip up a quick 101 on the Fastest Man Alive. Or should we say, the Fastest Men Alive. Yes, there have been a total of four men who have wielded the mantle of the Flash since the character’s debut, and we thought we’d take a quick (this is the Flash, after all) look at them. But first, a caveat. With the possible exception of Green Lantern, the Flash has the most complex history of all of the Justice Leaguers. His stories involve traveling through time and dimensions. We’re talking ab

William Shatner 'agrees' to Star Trek 3 role

Image
From Virgin Media William Shatner has agreed to appear in 'Star Trek 3', according to a report. The actor, now 83, rose to worldwide prominence in the 1960s when he appeared as Captain James Kirk in the popular TV series - and it appears he is about to return to the ever-popular sci-fi franchise. Shatner is set to share a scene with the current Captain Kirk - played by 34-year-old Chris Pine - as well as Spocks of present and past - played by Zachary Quinto, 37, and Leonard Nimoy, 83 - Badass Digest reports. Over the last few weeks, it's been widely speculated Shatner has been approached by the movie's producer JJ Abrams about making a return. And speaking recently, Shatner said he is ''open to the idea'' of appearing in 'Star Trek 3'. READ MORE MORE MOVIE NEWS

The Epic Anti-Spoiler Poster on the 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Set

Image
From Yahoo Movies Is J.J. Abrams’ anti-spoiler poster actually a hint that Darth Vader is coming back for Episode VII to choke young Imperial officers? No, probably not, but it’s fun to speculate! Frank Marshall, the husband of Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy, tweeted the photo above when he visited Pinewood Studios in London on Monday where the Star Wars sequel is being filmed. Director J.J. Abrams’s hatred of leaks is legendary, and now he’s got a rabid Internet of Star Wars fans to contend with. And because they read into every little sliver of information and amplify rumors and hearsay across the geek-o-sphere, no matter what he says or does — including putting up this fun poster — will become fodder for the daily grist mill.

THE FLASH Series Premiere: Tuesday, October 7 at 8/7c on The CW

Image
From Warner Bros Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) was just 11 years old when his mother was killed in a bizarre and terrifying incident and his father was falsely convicted of the murder. With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West (Jesse L. Martin), the father of Barry's best friend, Iris (Candice Patton). Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother's strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along. Barry's latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, created by visionary physicist Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) and his S.T.A.R. Labs team, who claim that this invention will bring about unimaginable advancements in power and medicine. However, something goes horribly wrong during the public unveiling, and when the devastating explosion causes a freak
