Patton Oswalt and Nite Owl Actor Patrick Wilson Dissect ‘Watchmen’ Movie

patrick_wilson_as_nite_owl_ii_with_malin_akerman__in_the_background__as_silk_spectre_ii_watchmen_movie_image_l

This is a fun clip. It’s from a recent appearance from actor, comedian, and author Patton Oswalt (whose new book, ‘Silver Screen Fiend,’ all about his obsession with movies, will probably be of great interest to ScreenCrush readers) at the WORD Bookstore in Jersey City, where he did a public conversation with actor Patrick Wilson. Oswalt is a hardcore comic-book nerd in addition to his passion for film, and Wilson starred in one of the most polarizing comic-book adaptations of all time, Zack Snyder’s slavishly faithful version of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ ‘Watchmen.’ When a fan asked a question about the movie, both Oswalt and Wilson shared their honest feelings about the project, which you can watch above.

This Live-Action ‘Jem’ Movie Sure Is Different Than We Thought It Would Be

Jem00

As regular readers will no doubt be aware, ComicsAlliance's most anticipated movie of 2015/ever is the upcoming live-action adaptation of the greatest glam-rock cartoon of all time, Jem and the Holograms. That said, there are a lot of rumors floating around about changes made in the transition from the small screen to the big screen. Some of them are interesting (possibly recasting Eric Raymond as a woman), some of them are worrisome (making an entire Jem movie without the Misfits), but they're all pointing at a Jem that's pretty different from the one we're used to. We just weren't quite expecting it to be this different.

As you can see from the video above, it seems like the live-action Jem has recast its stars as men who sing in Italian. So... that's unexpected.

Report: Marvel and Sony Deal Done, Spider-Man to Debut in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

Spider Man Marvel Avengers
Marvel/Sony Pictures

It was one of the most enticing bits of news to come out of the Sony e-mail hack: Marvel and Sony had deep discussions about introducing Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel badly wanted Spider-Man to be a part of 'Captain America: Civil War', but despite the best intentions from all parties, a deal was never struck and progress was reset back to square one. But, has hope been restored? A new report suggests that Marvel and Sony returned to the negotiating table and have struck a deal for Spidey to make his spectacular debut in 'Avengers: Infinity War, Part 1'.

Beware Forever: Read The Poem That Won Starlog’s ‘Why You Want To Meet Batman’ Contest In 1988

BatmanContest00

Of all the strange habits that my friends have, combing through back issues of Starlog on the Internet Archive is probably at the top of the list in a walk. Occasionally, though, sifting through promo pieces for V and Alien Nation turns up something gold, which is exactly what happened this week. While reading the November, 1988 issue of Starlog, Andrew Weiss came upon a contest that offered readers a trip to London to visit the set of Tim Burton's Batman '89. All you had to do was write in and explain why you wanted to meet Batman.

The Complete History of Comic-Book Movies, Chapter 1: ‘Adventures of Captain Marvel’

Adventures of Captain Marvel 1
Republic Pictures

The number one movie of last year was based on a comic book. The year before, two of the top five movies were based on comics. The year before that, both of the two top movies of the year were inspired by comics; both went on to make more than $1 billion worldwide and are now among the top 15 highest-grossing movies in history. Next year, no less than ten (10) movies based on comic books will open in theaters. Blessed are the geeks, for they have inherited the earth, at least as far as Hollywood is concerned.

We Frantically Screencapped Every Single Frame Of The ‘Avengers: Age Of Ultron’ Trailer For Some Reason

aoucap2b-vert

A new Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer was released on Monday night during the sport, and we shared it with you on the site already, but sometimes it's not enough to just watch a commercial for a movie you're definitely going to go see anyway. Just watching it means it washes over you, and all you absorb is a general sense of how excited you should be about this movie that you're absolutely guaranteed to watch on opening weekend. You don't get to dig deep into the minutiae of every flickering second.

So we downloaded some kind of screencapping software, scrubbed off most of the malware that came with it, and set to work slicing 100 seconds of footage into tiny slivers of information. And then we stared at that information. And then we wrote down whatever came into our heads. Because passively watching a trailer just isn't enough anymore. To really know if you want to watch this movie that you probably already booked your tickets for, you have to live the trailer.

Come live it with us.

The latest trailer for director Joss Whedon's Avengers sequel Avengers: Age Of Ultron has arrived, offering a few new glimpses of our heroes in action as they take on James Spader's tin-pot menace Ultron -- and each other. The highlight is an extended look at Iron Man's tussle with Hulk, with Tony Stark in the Hulkbuster armor. Also on display; lots of moody pouting, and a better look at Black Widow's sensational new 'do. So cute. Super cute.

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Premium Ultron Action Figure Has Got No Strings

Untitled-1

Vision and Ultron are two of the most prominent new elements in ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ as both characters drive much of the film’s action. We’ve gotten several sneak peeks at the enigmatic Vision and the sinister Ultron, but this new premium figure from Hot Toys gives us the most sharp and sleek look at the epic super villain yet. If you’re an ‘Avengers’ fan and have some extra cash just laying around, maybe consider throwing it down for this awesome new toy—or “premium figure,” if you want to use grown-up language.
