For some reason, everyone seems to be buzzing this week about Batman fighting people in the movies - even more so than usual, I mean. If that's the kind of story that's sparked your interest today, then friend, you could do a lot worse than spending the next six minutes watching Batman vs. Terminator, a stop-motion fan-film in which the Dark Knight returns in a future dominated by Skynet and its killer robots.
Produced by YouTuber Captain McKay - who I think we can assume was bitten by a radioactive McKay at some point in the past - the project uses Mezco's Dark Knight Returns Batman figure and NECA's Terminator figure, and the results are pretty amazing. Give it a watch!
Fan films have been on the rise over the last few years, with characters from Black Panther to Power Rangers receiving gritty reboots courtesy of aspiring filmmakers. Director Arvin Bautista has managed to stand out from the crowd, first with his glittery and glamorous music video "Sight of the Sound," starring Gentry Ross as the brightest star in the Marvel Universe, Dazzler, and now with his follow-up, "I Will Steal Your Heart," which puts Marvel punk-pop-rocker supreme Lila Cheney at center-stage, as played with flair by Sage Montclair.
Lila is joined by a whole cast of New Mutants (and several other surprise cameos), and Ross reprises her role as Dazzler for an 80s-tastic foray into the underground club scene, which surely must be driving those poor Morlocks insane by now. The videos are fantastic fun, so ComicsAllaince took the time to chat with Bautista, Ross (Dazzler), and Montclair (Lila Cheney) about the experience, with Dazzler's eternal advice to "go for it!" ringing always in our ears.
Archie Comics' rebirth in recent years as a prominent publisher of horror comics was certainly unexpected, but it's produced some really great stuff, like the brutally horrific zombie comic Afterlife With Archie, and the new, more atmospheric horror of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. And now, it's responsible for fan-films.
Even back before anime and manga exploded (or E X P L O D Ed, as the case may be) and became as widely available as they are today, Masaume Shirow's Ghost In The Shell and Mamoru Oshii's anime adaptation were considered to be true high points of the cyberpunk genre. It's one of the most well known franchises in the entirety of anime, producing multiple adaptations and influencing films like The Matrix.
Obviously, it's going to have a pretty dedicated fanbase, and now, a group of artists and filmmakers have gotten together to produce a live-action fan-film adaptation of the original Ghost In The Shell anime's title sequence, reproducing it shot-for-shot. Check out a video of the process behind the recreation below!
That, friends, is the premise of a new fan-film from director Tomi Pietilä, reshooting the entire thing in live action. Well, except for the parts with the Batmobile, but c'mon, those are pretty hard to find.
It's a pretty good time to be a Sailor Moon fan. Not only is there a new animated series set to kick off with a worldwide release this summer and a new line of high-end action figures to populate your bookshelves, but there's also a resurgence of material created by fans as the franchise gets ready to relaunch.
Case in point: Moon Animate Make-Up, a full-length recreation of an episode of the original Sailor Moon anime, featuring a different animator for every shot of the show. And yes: That includes the "Sailor Moon Says" PSA at the end.
Ever since the announcement that RoboCop vs. Terminator was getting the deluxe edition treatment it deserves, I've been thinking a lot about crossovers, and the more I think, the more I'm fixated on one of the most glaring oversights of '90s comics. Against all reason, against all logic, we never got Batman vs. Terminator. That's crazy, right? I mean, we got Batman vs. Predator three times. THREE.And yet, nobody ever sent a robot back in time to take out Bruiser Wayne.
Now, that has been corrected, in the form of a genuinely awesome five-minute animated fan-film from Tony Guerrero and Mitchell Hammond, with music by Noir Deco, and it's awesome. Check it out below!
Joss Whedon never got to bring Wonder Woman back to the screen. The pilot by David E. Kelley for NBC didn't stick. CW's Amazon sits in limbo. Some think the character too "difficult" to make an easy transition to the screen. That hasn't stopped LA production company Rainfall from taking their own unauthorized stab, with a trailer that pits Diana against two very different sets of foes.
