Hope Your Ready For Another " The Fly" Remake

Because two versions of a movie is never quite enough, 20th Century Fox has decided to snatch an idea that has been floating around for a while and make a new film based on The Fly.

And director J.D. Dillard, who saw success with his street magician action drama Sleight at last year's Sundance Film Festival, is in talks to co-write and direct the latest take on the idea, which was birthed in George Langelaan's short story. It was first adapted in 1958 by Kurt Neumann into a film starring David Hedison and Vincent Price, and followed a scientist looking to perfect instant teleportation who became fused with a fly after the insect enters the machine.

David Cronenberg upped the body horror content for the 1986 remake, featuring Jeff Goldblum slowly and messily transforming into the hybrid creature following a similar accident.

If he does lock down a deal, Dillard will co-write the latest script with Sleight's Alex Theurer, after the pair has finished working on their next film, horror pic Sweetheart, which is about to start shooting.

Movie Review: #BEAUTYANDTHEBEAST Gorgeous!

Gorgeous!

RAMA delivers another review.

To say that Disney’s live action BEAUTY AND THE BEAST movie is better than the 1991 animated classic may be a bit of a stretch. But this is as dazzling, enchanting and marvelous as today’s digital visual effects can offer you. I think despite the obvious autotune effort, Emma Watson does a good job of carrying the legacy; portraying my favorite Disney princess ever, the most gorgeous bookworm in the land, Belle. This remake basically takes everything you loved about the previous version and makes it significantly seem more jubilant, like a big broadway celebration.

Directed by Bill Condon, based on the 1991 animated film, the screenplay for this one is written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopouous, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST comes to life in this cinematic journey of a bright independent young woman, Belle, who takes the place of her imprisoned father in a castle inhabited by the beast and his porcelain staff. In time, Belle befriends the staff and even the beast and can look past his hideous appearance to realize the true Prince within. All the while, Gaston, who’s set his eyes on Belle for quite some time, is determined to get her to marry him at all cost.

I think this is a case of a perfect casting, every actor involved is just right for their roles, especially Josh Gad who as we all know has an established broadway background, he has an incredible voice, and my goodness, Luke Evans’ singing is astounding. He definitely should release his own solo album one of these days. Every die hard musical fan would love this “Beauty And The Beast”

I enjoy the new songs and the new backstories that they’ve added to the characters because they make the story all the more full. You can now understand some of the motivations a bit better because the missing pieces are there. You will now no longer be able to accuse “Beauty And The Beast” of experiencing Stockholm Syndrome. The story gets expanded and further explored, so you’ll come to appreciate the journey of how and why Belle falls in love with the Beast. And the visuals are just spectacular. They amp up the “Be Our Guest” sequence to the level that surrounds your senses. I never thought the ballroom waltz dancing scene could get more magical but the film has achieved exactly that. It’s beautiful, it’s stunning, it’s simply gorgeous.

Now.. am I impressed with Emma Watson’s singing? Not quite. This is one of my concerns about this film. But that is not necessarily a bad thing. She hits the notes and whatever autotune they did on her works just fine. I understand Emma is not Paige O’Hara, I understand Emma was never known for her singing nor did she ever hit the musical circuit, so I don’t expect Emma to completely floor me. But she has the appearance of Belle and she can act and she looks the part. Unlike Russell Crowe in “Les Miserables” who couldn’t sing well and didn’t look the part. Watson’s case is more like Gerard Butler’s in “Phantom of the Opera” to give you a comparison.

I personally don’t see what the big deal is about Josh Gad’s LeFou be some kind of Disney’s first gay character. I know there are some uptight parents out there who think their kids shouldn’t be exposed to such forced liberalism. Haters will hate. I think there’s nothing wrong with making LeFou gay, it does explain his fascination with Gaston but instead of changing the sexual orientation of an already established character, perhaps someday Disney could make a movie that features a gay character from the get-go. But that’s neither here nor there, LeFou is after all not the lead character here. This film ultimately is for the romantic in all of us. Overall, “Beauty And The Beast” is a great and joyous re-imagining that will take you up to cloud nine.

Edward James Olmos Will return In Blade Runner 2049

When Blade Runner 2049 hits later this year, Harrison Ford's Deckard won't be the only character returning from the 1982 original. Edward James Olmos has revealed that he will be back as veteran Blade Runner Gaff.

"I couldn’t talk about it. I couldn’t talk about it to anybody about it," he said to hosts Bel Hernandez and Naibe Reynoso of Thetrend Talk show. "Guess what? This is the first time that I’m telling the whole world, that yes, I am going to be Gaff in Blade Runner 2049."

Don't expect the film to be all-Gaff, all the time, though. There will still be time for people such as Ford and new main character Officer K, played by Ryan Gosling. "Well, it’s not about Gaff, but it’s about someone who is going to try to find out certain things about us back then," says Olmos. "My role is like it was in the original – that time I only had four scenes, in this I only have one. But again, it’s a poignant little scene." We'll take one scene with EJO over no scenes.

Set 30 years after Ridley Scott's film, Denis Villeneuve's follow-up finds Officer K investigating a long-buried secret that could throw society into chaos. He makes it his mission to find former Blade Runner Deckard, who has not been seen for three decades...

@FunkoDCLegion Review: March 2017

Legion's DC LEGACY box pushes the boundaries of Funko cool.

Review by Matt Cummings

We were mightily impressed with January's DC LEGACY, a sub box that pushed the boundaries and shook off some dust that had accumulated on Funko's business plan. And even though our box arrived damaged, March 2017's arrival takes a slight step sideways with SUPERMAN, celebrating the classic character with a collection of great products that once again stretch the genre into exciting new territory.

The Promise
Before we begin, let's look at the deal again: promising a value of $50, the sub continues the tradition of Funko partnering each time to deliver an exclusive figure and t-shirt without the fluff or filter (their words). Joining at the VIGILANTE MEMBERSHIP, members receive 6 boxes every year, with the promise of an exclusive themed collectible gift on the one-year anniversary of your annual membership pf $150 p sh/h. You can also subscribe at the SIDEKICK LEVEL at $25 with $6.95 shipping. That's literally the same deal as Marvel Collector Corps. DC/Funko promises a similar one-year anniversary item with VIGILANTE, but with the spectacular failure behind Marvel Collector Corps' Golden Cap figure, I'm not hopeful for a cool reveal.

The Delivery
We use QUALITY and TIMING to base our reviews, so let's see how this box stands up. As always, we'll end our review with some additional thoughts after the unboxing:

The Guts
We were not happy at all to see that our box arrived crushed in several key spots, and worried that the damaged had seeped into the contents. Sadly as you can see, the Funko box arrived pretty torched. In our three-plus years of writing, this is the first box to arrive in such condition, so we'll write it off to our postal system testing whether Superman can really fly. The size of the box is fairly standard, but reveals one interesting level after another, starting with a pin/patch set. It's a critical opening swing each time a box arrives, but not always indicative of successes under the cardboard covering. But for now, let's revel in a very nice set of classic-looking Supes. The stitching on the patch is good, while the light-blue suit on the pin is great. I know last time I mentioned that a standard box like this one can have its issues, but as you see from my pictures, things remain high quality and retro cool. WIN and WIN.

The Comic
The Superman Funko comic is as an awesome as they get, showing off The Last Son of Krypton as we remember him growing up. DC's #1 never looked so good, and the colors once again pop with an almost 3D feel. Yes! You can't have a DC box without highlighting one of your #1 heroes, and the comic does him more than justice. A solid WIN.

Another Fantastic Pop!
There is so to like about this Classic Superman that it's hard to contain my enthusiasm over it. Let's start with the sculpt, which features a killer set of ab muscles and that lock of black hair. So Supes. The coloring of his uniform is also fabulous, with it leaning a tad darker than I would have expected. But at least we're not talking baby blue! I'm really impressed with Funko's command of its sculpts; granted, you don't have to do much to make Superman a winner (as he has no utility belt or overly detailed suit). But there's something cool when you see them get the spirit of a hero so completely, and I find myself loving this as much as I loved their first Armor Bats that appeared when the box first began. WIN.

Funko's First Superman Action Figure
So, here's the deal Funko: 3/4-scale figures are just fine. We got a decent Diana from you a few months back (and that jet!), but 3/4" is for children, and I don't think that's who collecting these boxes. As a loving Marvel Legends 6" collector, please consider offering a bigger (and therefore better) figure than one that's poseable in so few places. Granted, we love the once-used symbol - and the card is super cool - but he looks a tad...well... Bizarro. And that's OK, considering this is taken from a 1938 version of Superman, but perhaps Funko will surprise us one day with a gorgeous Funko 6". Wouldn't that be great? For now, consider this a WIN so long as you know what you're getting.

Love. This. Shirt. Sort Of.
When we pulled this one from its plastic prison, the softness of the material really caught us. This one is wearable right now, even though I know some of you love to wear a shirt right from the rack, complete with all of those chemical all over it. But there's more going on here with this one, including the awesome backdrop of The Daily Planet and logo that takes me back to Super Friends. But there's an issue: the size. While all Funko shirts do fit a tad differently, this XL looks more like a XXL. Either that, or it's what my Nordstrom shirts sometime refer to as "generously cut." I have another SF shirt that suffers from the same problem, and it's frankly a problem to wear. I love so much about this shirt that I hope a couple of washings relieve my concern, so for now count this one as a WIN.

A "Nice" Keychain
It's never a good thing when you think that these boxes are throwing in something lame just to fill the empty spaces. At least Funko's keychain of a flying Superman is nicely made and certainly worthy of protecting your keys from local thieves. It's beautifully colored and not too big for your pocket. I just wonder how long the gorgeous paint will keep before we see nicks and other marks seep in. Say what you want about the company's choices and whether a keychain and action figure are excellent ways for Funko to extend their brand, but when they're well made and aren't a hat or cup I can't drink from, count this as a WIN.

The Bottom Line
DC's Legion of Collectors SUPERMAN box is a great celebration of this iconic character. Sporting a great shirt, an excellent figure, and several other nice ancillary toys, it reminds us why he's the Sentient Power (thanks so much Smallville's Dr. Fate for that gem).

I've written for awhile about whether these boxes can survive long-term, and it all goes back to quality. Should Funko continue to deliver boxes like these and January's LEGACY, we won't have a problem supporting them. I wrote last time what this box had a lot to prove because LEGACY was so inventive. Not every box needs to be so, and my concern has always been about quality and timing. Attaching SUPERMAN to those standards results in a box that's just as good as LEGACY because it hits all the marks. And with our next box featuring WONDER WOMAN (as we get ready for the November movie), I will be looking for it to soar to similar heights. This box comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

#AmericanPlayboy The Hugh Hefner Story Trailer & Images

American Playboy: The Hugh Hefner Story tells the story of Playboy magazine’s charismatic founder, Hugh Hefner, who set out to disrupt the status quo and created one of the most recognizable brands in history.


The docuseries combines archival footage, pulling from thousands of hours from Hefner’s personal archives; interviews with notable figures including Jesse Jackson, Gene Simmons and Bill Maher; and cinematic reenactments.



See all the images after the Jump...









Produced by the Emmy Award-winning Stephen David Entertainment and Alta Loma Entertainment, American Playboy begins in post-war America and takes us through the launch of Playboy magazine in 1953 and the next six decades of Hefner’s life and career. As he built his empire, Hefner became both a social justice advocate and a target of the conservative movement while becoming an outspoken defender of civil rights, freedom of speech, gay rights and, of course, sexual freedom. The series is the result of unprecedented access to thousands of hours of never-before-seen footage from both Hefner’s and the Playboy archives and Hefner’s personal scrapbooks, which number more than 2,900 and constitute a Guinness World Record. The 90-year-old Hefner has been deeply involved in the development and production of American Playboy, imbuing the series with rich first-person accounts and never-before-told stories.
