From Marvel Comics “I used to be embarrassed because I was just a comic book writer while other people were building bridges or going on to medical careers. And then I began to realize: entertainment is one of the most important things in people's lives. Without it, they might go off the deep end. I feel that if you're able to entertain, you're doing a good thing.” - Stan Lee Today, Marvel Comics and The Walt Disney Company pause and reflect with great sadness on the passing of Marvel Chairman Emeritus, Stan Lee. With a heavy heart, we share our deepest condolences with his daughter and brother, and we honor and remember the creator, voice and champion of Marvel. "Stan Lee was as extraordinary as the characters he created. A super hero in his own right to Marvel fans around the world, Stan had the power to inspire, to entertain, and to connect. The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart," said Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO, The

Now this looks awesome! This comes to us via Bloody Disgusting: VFX artist Ken Locsmandi makes his directorial debut with the sci-fi movie Beyond White Space, which Vertical Entertainment recently acquired for US distribution. Along with the trailer, i09 brings us the news today that Beyond White Space will be released in theaters and on demand December 14.

Written by Ryan Colucci and Clay McLeod Chapman, the film is set in 2150 A.D. “During its final harvest of the season, a deep-space fishing vessel encounters a rare creature, mammoth in size and highly territorial. Matters get worse when a vicious band of scavengers intercept the vessel, leaving them with nothing. With no cargo and few supplies, t

From Slash Film H.G. Wells’s sci-fi classic War of the Worlds has undergone many adaptations already, but a few more won’t hurt. Fox Networks Group is mounting a new War of the Worlds TV series, likely starring Greg Kinnear. The timing on this is a bit odd, since the BBC is about to premiere a War of the Worlds TV series of their own. Deadline broke the news about a new War of the Worlds TV series, which Greg Kinnear is said to be circling. The series will air on Canal+ in France and on Fox across 50 territories across Europe and Africa. Studiocanal will distribute internationally. The series will be set in the present day, and is described as “a reimagined telling of HG Wells’ alien invasion story.” Oddly enough, another War of the Worlds TV series is about to debut on the BBC. This series, starring Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark, Ordeal by Innocence) and Rafe Spall (Life of Pi, The Big Short), is set in the same time period as Wells’ novel (the 189os). Perhaps the different tim
