Competitions are winding down on FOX's The Masked Singer with Rabbit, Bee, Alien, Crow, and Poodle taking the stage this week. The clues were more cryptic, but most of the performances pretty solid. Fellow "Mask-erader" Leigh Kade and I will get you up-to-speed on our latest celebrity guesses as we recap the hijinx. Alien Performance https://youtu.be/CwAb0yQ5bik Clues […]
Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) have long claimed Thanksgiving as a day for their show, dating back to turkey-day marathons on previous channels. With Netflix successfully rebooting the series, they delivered a brand-new experience to fans this past weekend of six new episodes designed to be binged in what was called as "The Gauntlet." Jonah […]
I'm the king of recap, there is none higher, so sucker MC's should probably call me "sire." To burn my kingdom, you must use fire, but I won't stop rockin' till…The Weekly Static! Now while I work on getting my cockles up to a respectable level of warmth, take a minute to check out your… […]
In what can best be described as a "good news/bad news" proposition, Netflix has renewed bad-movie-roasting comedy series Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Return for a new season. That's great news for MST3K fans, who are set to be treated to a twelfth season of the series in the "not-too-distant future. For Jonah Ray's Jonah Heston, […]
You know the drill.

VIP attendees will receive an […]
It's Wednesday, it's new comics day, which means it's time for 36 Thoughts About 36 Comics' traditionally fabourite way of opening its column. Some gratuitous male nudity. Courtesy of Woods #1 there. Any more for any more? Okay, that's painful. Thank you Rat Queens. And Suicide Risk #13 gives you some topless restaurant action. Seriously, […]
O'Barr, the creator of the original comics, said that he's supporting the new film because of director Gutierrez' take on the material. So what is that take?
Bradley Cooper, Tom Hiddleston and Alexander Skarsgåd were all in contention for the role of resurrected rock-n-roll avenger The Crow at some point or other, but none of them, ultimately, have won the role.
The comic book character created by James O'Barr and previously played by Brandon Lee, Vincent Perez, Eric Mabius and Edward Furlong.
There are still plans to reboot The Crow, and now James McAvoy's name is being tossed around.
After a series of stalled development efforts, with both Paradise Lost and Dracula Year Zero run aground in the last couple of years, Dark City and The Crow director Alex Proyas is heading back to a long-time passion project, setting himself to work on an adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein's mysterious novel, The Unpleasant Profession […]
Peter S Svensson, reporting from WonderCon for Bleeding Cool, emails to let us know that IDW will be publishing a four issue sequel to Joe Hill and Ciarmella's The Cape series, entitled The Cape: 1969. Is a trip to the moon in order? He also lets us know that John Shirley, who wrote the first […]
The Osterman Weekend is one of the Sam Peckinpah pictures it's okay to remake (well, I think it's okay to remake them all, but I know some people are sentimental about these things). One reason this would get the nod, perhaps, is that Peckinpah's film was already adapted itself, from Robert Ludlum's novel of the […]
A recent attempt to reboot The Crow movie series, the undead-rocker-revenge story, based on a comic by James O'Barr, collapsed amidst legal squabbles between the Weinsteins and Relativity Media – no prizes for guessing which of those parties was coming down on the other. Just yesterday, the two parties announced that the fight was over, […]
Right now, there's no director or star attached to the intended Crow remake* so it's stalled and, as far as we know, may not ever get moving again. Just recently, however, Bradley Cooper was attached to star for director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. I remember that a lot of people had a hard time visualising Cooper […]

When Bleeding Cool got a chance to sit down for a chat with Bradley Cooper, Bleeding Cool wasn't actually available, so we spent a special, anonymous envoy to grill him on our behalf. Can't tell you who. Somebody special. Our little friend. All the same, even though faced with an unprofessional, Cooper gave great quote. […]
Negotiations are said to be at an early stage, but Bradley Cooper is in talks to take up the mantle of The Crow and star as Eric Draven in the new Juan Carlos Fresnadillo movie. If you can photoshop a snap of Cooper's face to look like James O'Barr's The Crow and then post the image […]
It bounced around on the tracking boards for a couple of months, but now the deal has been done and it's official: 28 Weeks Later and Intacto director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is to resurrect The Crow. At the moment there's no finished screenplay, and according to Variety, Fresnadillo will work one up with an as-yet […]
Nick Cave has taken on the task of rewriting Stephen Norrington's screenplay for a remake of The Crow, the Alex Proyas and Brandon Lee adaptation of James O'Barr's undead avenger comic book. I hope this is a page-one rewrite because the idea of Cave polishing something by another writer… somehow sits oddly with me. I […]
