“This summer has seen scads of sequels and scores of superheroes. And apparently for good reason: Of the top 10 money makers this summer, nine were either superhero flicks or sequels.”

“THE new thriller “Contagion” revisits a conundrum that has bedeviled many filmmakers over the years: how do you make a movie about a virus, a villain that isn’t even visible?”

This Hot Toys figure based on the 1989 Batman movie is…wow…amazing! Unfortunately, it’s pricy at $240.

New Movies: To Wait or Not to Wait?

The window between the time a movie is released in theaters to the time it’s available on Blu-ray/DVD/digital download (home video) is quickly shrinking. Back in the days when VHS was king, movies were almost always available on home video six months after the initial theatrical release and then premiered on one of the pay cable channels six months after that.

Now that isn’t the case.

I dig this poster, I think with a few small tweaks it would have made a great teaser poster.

The Blu-ray edition of the original Planet of the Apes movie series have been around for a while, but I really like the packaging for them. It’s nice to see how each one matches the whole while at the same time retaining a unique identity for each separate release. 

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

Rise of the Planet of the Apes is good, great even. I’d say that it’s the best movie of the summer — take that Captain America! 

Cool minimalist Marvel character posters, more here and here.

Years ago, I bought this comic for the cover alone. It’s great!

Is Monster Squad a a) forgotten movie, b) cult movie or c) a movie only a kid who first saw it as a pre-teen could love? I’d vote for all three.

Remember when toys were just for kids?

These days, collecting toys is a very much different activity than it was even 15 years ago. Up until then, toys were something that were meant to be played with by children. And, if those toys sometimes appealed to adults who might also happen to collect them all the better. But something changed in the mid-1990s. Then, some toys started to be more “objects of cool” than items to be played with by kids and were instead meant for the teen and adult collectors.

But even then, the prices on toys were still reasonable. One could buy a detailed figure that looked a whole heck of a lot like one of the creatures from the movie Aliens for less than $20. And while those types of toys are still readily available, in the last few years a high-end toy market has started to develop, one that caters to a collector who’s not afraid to spend hundreds of dollars on a small plastic toy.

Case in point; Hot Toys.

Another Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy trailer. This looks great. 

First look at the new Superman from Man of Steel. I don’t like how dark they keep taking the costume, but I suppose they’re going for a more dark and moody Superman rather than the traditional light and airy one.

Though Band of the Hand is the craziest, most insane unbelievable movie I’ve seen in a long time, it’s also my new favorite bad movie. Watch the trailer here.

When I was a teen I was OBSESSED with this movie. We didn’t own a copy, but would rent it each and every chance we got.

It’s been a while since I’ve been interested in the Doctor Who TV series, years actually, but I think this poster for the show is really strong. Interesting that no where on the poster do the words “Doctor Who” appear. The Who brand is strong enough over-seas that the image and Who icon are strong enough to sell the series.

I used to be looking forward to the Apollo 18 movie, but after it’s release dates kept slipping I think this one is a rental for me. Still, great poster!

“Breaking Bad” is not the only show AMC is looking to trim costs on. “The Walking Dead,” which became a big hit for the network, is having its per-episode budget cut by about $250,000. Last week the show’s executive producer Frank Darabont left, and there is speculation that the budget cuts were the reason. People close to AMC deny that was the case.”

The poster for the upcoming TV (mini?) series Terra Nova is actually kind’a nice.

And I thought the Skitter aliens in Falling Skies were creepy, they ain’t got nuthin’ on the bipedal ones! 

Falling Skies

Beginning this Sunday (8/7) at noon (EST), TNT will air a marathon of six Falling Skies episodes until 6 PM, then the two hour season finale will air at 9. Falling Skies really is, if I dare say, the best show I’ve seen all year long, and indeed it’s probably the best sci fi show since the debut of Battlestar Galactica
