Stunning Original Production Art from the 1966 BATMAN Series

stunning-original-production-art-from-the-1966-batman-series1

I love the 1966 series Batman with Adam West and Burt Ward. It was just such an incredibly entertaining and campy show. I especially enjoyed the look of it. The costumes and the sets had just such a fun design to them.

Today we've got some awesome original production art to share with you from the series created by A. Leslie Thomas, who was a Hollywood art director who worked on 1950s horror films such as I was a Teenage Werewolf and Blood of Dracula.

The art recently resurfaced on Batgirl Bat-Trap, and it gives us a cool behind-the-scenes look at the work that went into creating this colorful world of Batman in the 60s. As you'll see, the artwork is stunning!

JURASSIC WORLD 2 to Focus on Animal Abuse

The new Jurassic World will mirror the real life consequences of animal abuse according to the director of the first film. Time reports Colin Trevorrow that had this to say about the blockbuster sequel...

“The dinosaurs will be a parable of the treatment animals receive today: the abuse, medical experimentation, pets, having wild animals in zoos like prisons, the use the military has made of them, animals as weapons,” 

Trevorrow continued and explained why it's necessary that J.A. Bayona direct the film as opposed to him...

“The second part will be a very different movie that will explore new paths. For that reason, it was clear that it needed to be Bayona who would direct it, in order to have it grow and evolve with his very personal vision.”

I'm not sure how I feel about a Jurassic Park film with an agenda. Let's be honest, they're already about the cheesiest blockbuster hit on the market and trying to add some subtext to a film about running from dinosaurs could come off as ridiculous. Then again, it could bring some seriousness to the film that hasn't been seen since its birth. 

Do you think having a real world message will better serve the Jurassic Park franchise? 

NARCOS Star Boyd Holbrook in Talks to Star in Shane Black’s THE PREDATOR

Benicio Del Toro was in talks to star in Shane Black's upcoming film The Predator, but in a recent report from THR, the actor has fallen out of negotiations. It looks like the main reason things didn't work out was because of scheduling conflicts. Twentieth Century Fox didn't waste any time on choosing his replacement.

The studio is currently in talks with Boyd Holbrook, one of the stars of Netflix's fantastic series Narcos, to take on the lead role. He's also playing the villain in the studio's upcoming film Logan. Holbrook may not be as big of an actor as Del Toro, and because of that, "Fox is planning on beefing up the supporting cast." From what I've seen of Holbrook in Narcos, he's definitely a talented actor who will most likely end up being great in the role. 

There aren't a lot of details on the film yet. We know that film's main character will be named Quinn Mackenna and that the story will take place about thirty years after the events of the original film, which makes the film a sequel. There are no details on the plot at this time, though.

Black wrote the treatment for The Predator and his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker is writing the screenplay. They are looking to start shooting the film in February 2017, and I can't wait to see how it turns out! I'm pretty excited about this film project.

How SUICIDE SQUAD Should Have Ended

Suicide Squad may have gotten bashed to hell by a bunch of movie critics, but it made ton of money at the box office, which means audiences enjoyed it. I personally enjoyed it and thought it was a really fun flick. Of course, the story could have gone in so many different directions, and it could have ended in so many different ways. Those are hilariously explored in the latest episode from the team at How it Should Have Ended. Most of those alternate endings involve Amanda Waller or the Enchantress being taken out of the equation before they can cause any trouble. It also pokes fun at a few other things involving the characters. Whether you enjoyed Suicide Squad or hated it, I think you'll enjoy what this video dishes out.

International Trailer for DOCTOR STRANGE Includes Some Cool New Action Sequences

We've only got a few weeks left before Doctor Strange is released in theaters, and I'm so pumped up! The anticipation is killing me! As we continue to wait to see the film, Marvel has released a fun new international trailer that continues to tease the movie's awesomeness. It contains a couple cool new action sequences that I've never seen before, so keep a look out for those while you watch it. One of them comes near the end and shows Strange jumping down and through a transmogrified NYC landscape. This movie is going to be trippy as hell!

Marvel recently screened 15 minutes of the film to the press. I wasn't there, but I've heard that it is completely mind-blowing stuff that will floor fans. It looks and sounds like director Scott Derrickson has really created something special here, and I'm so excited to finally see the story play out on the big screen.

Doctor Strange will be released in theaters on November 4th!

This past weekend a badass teaser trailer was released for John Wick: Chapter 2. It did a great job of getting fans completely pumped up for the sequel. It looks so freakin' awesome! Lionsgate has now released three new photos from the film featuring Ruby Rose as Ares, who kicks some major ass in the first trailer. Then there's Lawrence Fishburn as The Bowler King, and I'm not sure who's in the third photo, but it's a cool shot! 

Keanu Reeves returns in the sequel to the 2014 hit as legendary hitman John Wick who is forced to back out of retirement by a former associate plotting to seize control of a shadowy international assassins’ guild. Bound by a blood oath to help him, John travels to Rome where he squares off against some of the world’s deadliest killers.

John Wick: Chapter 2 blasts its way into theaters on February 10th, 2017.

VICIOUS Is an Award Winning Horror Short That’s Scary as Hell

vicious-is-an-award-winning-horror-short-thats-scary-as-hell-social.jpg

I've got a great horror short for you to check out today called "Vicious," and it's pretty damn terrifying. The story revolves around a young woman who is in the process of dealing with the death of her sister. One night she comes home to find her front door unlocked. It turns out that she might not be alone, and things take a very spooky turn.

The film was written and directed by Oliver Park, and not only did I enjoy the story, but the way it was shot definitely enhanced the fear factor. The imagery was wonderfully eerie. I especially loved how he uses imagination to enhance the fear. For example, when I was a kid and there was a pile of clothes thrown onto a chair, when it was dark and I was in bed, those clothes looked like a monster lurking in my room. The creeks and cracks in the old house I grew up in didn't help either! They use those kinds of tricks to tell this horror story, and it's executed perfectly.

If you scare easily, this horror short is definitely going to get you! It does have some jump scares that are handled extremely well. The movie tells a slow burn kind of story that leads to a great finale! Make sure to watch it in the dark with the sound up!
