Zorro doesn’t need superpowers to save the day from injustice and tyranny, he has his whip, his sword, and his accent. This figure is based on the 1998 movie The Mask of Zorro featuring Antonio Banderas. This sixth scale figure is from Blitzway and Sideshow and features very realistic features of Antonio, it’s oddly quite uncanny. Zorro comes […]

Somehow, we’re getting a new Doctor Dolittle film. The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle film will be based on author Hugh Lofting‘s second Doctor Dolittle book which was published in 1922 (it’s worth noting the second entry was almost twice as long as the first). Universal Pictures won the rights to the project last year, after some hot bidding […]
The first season of National Geographic series Genius was good — Geoffrey Rush as Albert Einstein was inspired — and season 2 looks to be even better. As reported last year, Antonio Banderas will be playing Pablo Picasso in the later years of the troubled artist’s life. Today NatGeo released the first trailer for the season, featuring a look at Picasso and […]
Did you know that National Geographic series Genius was actually an anthology? I didn’t, either. Turns out that the show that starred Johnny Flynn and Geoffrey Rush as young and old Albert Einstein was just the first in what they hope will be a long line of historical geniuses.

In this behind-the-scenes featurette for Expendables 3… besides throwing the word “legend” around pretty generously… we get a good idea of what it’s like for some of the newer actors to work with the action stars of the past and vice versa. Seeing Wesley Snipes joking with Sylvester Stallone and Antonio Banderas is pretty funny […]

Maybe this is less fantasy than it is prophecy.
The Puss in Boots viral videos continue, and may even have reached their pinnacle with this pastiche of the Old Spice campaign. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JsbSolUF5c[/youtube] Again, the comic mileage in his machismo and cattiness seems endless. The more I see, the more I think this film is going to be both the most cogent and the most […]
Despite hundreds of uncharged 3D glasses causing problems with the presentation, an extended scene from Dreamworks’ Puss in Boots played to a very excited audience at Empire Big Screen this morning. I popped my specs off to look at the dual image because, frankly, the pulsing, flickering, strobing effect of the out-of-sync lenses was unwatchable. […]
The Skin I Am In, aka The Skin I Inhabit, aka La Piel que Habito is set for a Cannes unveiling. Would that I could be there.
