‘Jem and the Holograms’ Trailer: This Jem Is a Bit More Serious Than You Remember

Jem and the Holograms

The first trailer for Jon M. Chu’s Jem and the Holograms has arrived, and as indicated by a few of the photos released yesterday, this take on the classic ‘80s cartoon star is a bit more…serious. There are a couple of moments that promise levity and comedy, like Juliette Lewis’ record exec assuring the girls that it’s not them on that poster — “It’s Photoshop.” This new Jem doesn’t seem truly outrageous at all. She just seems a bit broody.

Marvel is definitely not messing around right now. In addition to hiring a pair of talented ladies to script their upcoming Captain Marvel solo film, the studio has their eye on one very awesome woman of color to take on one of their “diverse” upcoming movies: Selma director Ava DuVernay is reportedly being courted by Marvel for either Captain Marvel or Black Panther, and either film could benefit from having DuVernay behind the camera.

Lucifer Schmucifer: ‘Lucifer’ Trailer Reveals Yet Another Procedural Show

lucifer-hed

The first trailer for Fox's Lucifer TV adaptation is here, and it looks bad. Much like iZombie, this series looks to have sacrificed most of what made it vivid in the name of providing yet another procedural. Cop and wacky sidekick? What’s the new angle? Oh, he’s literally the devil. I coulda just watched The Collector.

Looks like Charlize Theron wants to get in on some of that John Wick action. The Mad Max: Fury Road star has lined up another thrilling action project, this time with Chad Stahelski and David Leitch, the directing duo that delivered one of the best action films (if not the best) of 2014 with John Wick. And now they’re teaming up with Theron for a new spy thriller based on the graphic novel The Coldest City.

And The New Thor’s Identity Is… [Spoiler]

nu-thor-feat

Since her debut in September, Marvel has been making a lot of hay out of the new Thor being somebody readers will recognize, and playing up her secret identity as a big reveal.

As often happens, that big reveal was leaked online before the release of Wednesday's Thor #8. In response, Marvel confirmed the news to The New York Times, and the holder of the hammer is definitely someone longtime fans will be familiar with. Spoilers ahead.

Jem and the Holograms

As the classic theme song tells us, Jem is not only truly outrageous, but her music is contagious — and also there’s glamour and glitter, fashion and fame. You can see some of that courtesy of the first official photos from Jon M. Chu’s live-action version of Jem and the Holograms. And while there are some colorful images and some glittery rock star fashion, there are also a few more subdued photos, which aren’t all that exciting.

Kevin Feige Promises the Marvel Cinematic Universe Will Never Have a “Dark Turn”

Marvel
Marvel

That first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice made one thing very clear: Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero throwdown is not a Marvel movie. Not in character and especially not in tone. It was the latest punch thrown in the not-so-secret war between Marvel and DC, as Warner Bros. gears up to challenge Marvel Studios at the “shared universe” game. Whether intentional or not (and we’re betting on intentional), recent statements from MCU mastermind Kevin Feige feel like a direct jab at that Batman v Superman trailer and its dark, dreary tone.

Archie Launches Kickstarter For Chip Zdarsky’s ‘Jughead,’ Adam Hughes on ‘Betty & Veronica’ And Dan Parent And J. Bone’s ‘Life With Kevin’

Archie by Fiona Staples

I don't know about you, but I did not wake up this morning expecting to see the phrase, "Jughead relaunch from the writer of Sex Criminals." And yet, here we are.

Following up on the upcoming relaunch of Archie with Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, Archie Comics announced today that they plan to expand the rebooted Riverdale through a Kickstarter campaign. The goal is set at $350,000, with the money going to a trio of rebooted comics: Jughead from writer Chip Zdarsky and an unannounced artist, Life With Kevin by Dan Parent and J.
