DaredevilGhost RiderMarvelMovies

This week it was announced that both Ghost Rider and Daredevil would be headed back to the silver screen for sequels to their original features, which many considered a pox on humanity.  There are some very good reasons to do a sequel, and while you may not go and see the followup flicks, we want to know which of the two is going to be the least horrible. CHOOSE!

Film School Rejects has a tasty bit of information regarding a new Heavy Metal movie; James Cameron, Zack Snyder, Gore Verbinski, and David Fincher have all signed on to direct segments.  If this is news is solid and true, then count me impressed.  In addition to this this, Mark Osborne and Jack Black will also direct a comedy segment for the film, with two more directors to be announced later. Either this is going to be one long ass movie, or the segments are going to be incredibly short.  I just hope everyone takes the spirit of the comic magazine

Even before the second installment of the Transformers franchise hits the silver screen, Paramount has announced the third Transformers movie has a release date.  Surprisingly, no other studio has scheduled a major film for the 2011 Independence Day holiday, meaning we can expect to see Tranformers 3 hit mid-week on July 1, 2011. There’s no word on title, or who the stars will be, but audiences might get a hint at the end of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which opens June 24, 2009. via THR

Devil's Due PublishingHack/SlashReview

Gee golly, that’s a lot of blood Tim Seely’s Hack/Slash hits issue 20 and through it all, Cassie Hack and her sidekick Vlad have literally hacked and slashed their way from one end of the country to the next as the duo (and friends) take down slashers in some really gruesome ways.  With the trouble Devil’s Due had with the Reanimator story arc, I’m glad the series was able to make it through the storm, but what of the beloved goth girl and her monster friend?

Aphrodite IX, the sexy cyborg assassin, is getting the 3D treatment for the upcoming feature film.   Platinum Studios, Threshold Entertainment, and Top Cow Productions are teaming up to bring the comic to the silver screen. Threshold’s Larry Kasanoff and Platinum chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenberg are producing. Top Cow CEO Marc Silvestri and former Universal Pictures exec Randy Greenberg of the Greenberg Group are execu¬tive producers. Top Cow president Matt Hawkins and Platinum’s Rich Marincic are co-producing. If this is going to be 3D, I wonder who the target audience is going to be. This could certainly be the

MoviesTomb Raider

Why haven’t we seen any more Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movies in a while?  The rights reverted back to game creator Eidos a few years ago and apparently there has been a bidding war over which studio would pick up the franchise.  The Hollywood Reporter is noting Time Warner invested more money into the game company, which included the film rights.  Now the studio is trying to put something together for the next generation of movie goers. The new project, however, is expected to revamp the character and her mission and bear little resemblance to the original pictures. It will
