'Star Wars’ Spinoff To Have Both Boba Fett And Han Solo?

Image
From The Inquisitr As of this writing, most fans aren’t even thinking about the Star Wars spinoff films we’ll be getting in the coming years. The film that’s likely on everyone’s minds is J.J. Abrams’ upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. But if Disney plans to release the films yearly as originally scheduled, then there’s bound to be significant overlap in production schedules. As such, we’ve been getting a lot of news regarding the upcoming spinoffs — one rumored as a Boba Fett movie and the other as a Han Solo movie. The latest rumor comes from Latino Review, and states that Han Solo and Boba Fett may both be in the first spinoff from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards. “I want to reiterate for you literal minded readers out there that the only new thing I’ve contributed to this conversation is that I heard a rumor that the Han Solo and Boba Fett movie that we assumed was two movies has become one movie.” The potential existence of Boba Fett in the movie does lend some cre

The Inhumans first had their own series in 1975 with author Doug Moench leading the charge. Moench used several devices which have formed the core of many Inhumans stories to come later: the destruction of their home Attilan, being at odds with the rest of Marvel’s characters, and Jack Kirby’s device of Maximus the Mad throwing a monkey wrench into every situation. - Marvel Comics

Godzilla Via Satellite

Image
by Armand Vaquer Above, a satellite view of Kurihama Flower World. Can you spot the Godzilla slide? The other night, I was looking up something in Yokosuka, Japan. After I was done finding what I was looking for, I decided (for the fun of it) to see if I can get a satellite view of the Godzilla slide at the Kurihama Flower World park. Sure enough, once I located the park through Google Maps, I zoomed in on the park and hit the satellite view feature and was able to find the Godzilla slide pretty fast. Above, a little closer view. The Godzilla slide casts a familiar-shaped shadow. As you can see from the accompanying satellite photographs, Godzilla was relatively easy to spot by his distinctive shadow. The overhead power lines that I knew were there were also an aid to finding the Godzilla slide. Above, zooming in on the Godzilla slide. In the photographs, it is easy to spot the shadow image of his dorsal spikes and tail. Above, a view of the Godzilla slide

Sky Sharks - Sharks, Nazis, Zombies ... and Topless Amazons With Machine Guns All In One Movie

Image
Written By: Ken Hulsey Source: Avery Guerra Leave it to those wacky Germans to create a movie with all the elements of Sharknado, Walking Dead, Snakes on a Plane, and The Exorcist all wrapped together with Nazis and topless amazon chicks thrown in to boot. Now, I don't have any idea how all these things all go together (It's kinda like that game from Sesame Street back in the day ... One of these things is not like the other) but somehow the folks over at Benfeghoul Productions and Marctropolis Filmentertainment figured out how to mash it all up. Details on this thing are kinda sketchy, due to the fact that most of the press is written in German (Go figure, right) but there is a portion of the films' website in English where we found this synopsis: A team of Arctic geologists stumble across an abandoned laboratory in which the Nazis developed an incredible and brutal secret weapon during the final months of WW2 . Deep in the ice, they accidentally awake a dead

From Warner Bros Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in “Jupiter Ascending,” an original science fiction action adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” is written and directed by the Wachowskis.

Missoula instrumentalist pens score for Korean monster film

Image
From Missoulian Perhaps Yongary, a Korean knockoff of Godzilla, is like a grizzly bear – a misunderstood predator roused by the humans. That's the frame of mind Travis Yost, a longtime Missoula musician, had to assume while writing an original score for "Yongary: Monster from the Deep," a 1967 B-movie about "a prehistoric gasoline-eating reptile that soon goes on a rampage through Seoul," according to the plot summary. He had to create suspense for certain scenes while trying hard to ignore the fact that on screen, what's clearly a man in a rubber monster costume is battered with real fireworks. It was "the worst job as a stuntman in the 1960s," he said. Next Thursday, Yost will perform the score along with the movie at the Roxy Theater, armed with a guitar, keyboards, a drum machine and pedal board. He'll play it all live, with some sequencing but no sampling. It has elements of rock and bubbly electronic, some atonal parts and

New ‘Force Awakens’ Concept Art Really Makes It Look Like One ‘Star Wars’ Character Will Make A Comback

Image
From The Inquisitr Outside of the Episode VII cast and crew, nobody’s quite certain who or what is going to show up in the next Star Wars movie. New concept art that’s supposedly leaked from the film, though, points to the return of one major character in The Force Awakens, and it’s the sort of resurrection that could turn fans’ expectations for the next trilogy upside down. By now, two things should go without saying for this kind of post. First, of course, is that this is all conjecture, with occasionally unreliable outlets posting supposed leaks from even more unreliable sources. Second, which should be even more obvious, is that you should stop reading right about now if you want to roll into The Force Awakens spoiler-free. Those things said, the last few days have seen an uptick in reports that a major Star Wars character was going to make a surprise return in Episode VII. Namely, one Darth Vader. Last week, a selfie from Warwick Davis showed the diminutive actor in front
