On Monday, a group calling itself the Guardians of Peace (or GOP) hacked into Sony’s internal network and froze all their computers with a screen saying: “Hacked by #GOP” and a ticking clock for Sony to meet their demands before sensitive data was released to the world. Over the holiday a number of the companies watermarked […]
Sony has moved it’s World War II drama Fury up from November 14th to October 17th. The thought is the studio hopes to give the Brad Pitt, Shia LeBeouf and Logan Lerman film a longer playtime over awards season. The move adds one more to the already crowded weekend that includes Universal’s Dracula Untold with […]
The big battle sequence looks to come when the five-man crew has to defend themselves against a 500-men strong enemy squad.
“War Never Ends Quietly” is the tagline for David Ayer’s newest action thriller.
Tank warfare isn't quiet. But it can be - in the movies, only in the movies - star studded and stylish stuff.
I guess it’s some kind of law that Brad Pitt must wear a scar in all of his war films. At least it’s a realistic trend.
Such is the stylisation in this first image from Fury it looks less like a tense World War II drama about tank battles than a way to sell khaki clothing to hipsters.
Pretty slow news day today. I guess everyone’s still recovering from Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance. • 42 star Chadwick Boseman is going from Jackie Robinson to James Brown. The long-gestating biopic of the singer to be directed by The Help’s Tate Taylor is finally moving and has taken a significant step forward with this crucial […]
This is the Albert Einstein we always deserved and yet, until Manhattan Projects we never got a whiff of until now. I’m so glad we got Manhattan Projects. Morning Glories does the hideous trick of applying a child’s logic to the Bible. Which is just the kind of thing it was never meant to stand […]
From today's Earth 2 #8, published today, and yes, set spoilers to stun.
The writer of last night’s Doctor Who, Toby Whithouse, has a very small history of this sort of thing. Check out his Miracleman/Being Human Swipe File. It was absolutely blatant. But it’s another Alan Moore comic being referenced here, one with a character designed by Alan Davis. What about The Gunslinger and… The Fury? Both […]
Brian Azzarello does seem to be channelling Neil Gaiman right now, or Robert Graves via Neil at least, and never more than in this issue of Wonder Woman #9, fully immersed in a world of gods and goddesses, of strange lands and Hades, contrasted with the concerns of humanity. This and Journey Into Mystery make […]
Grath Ennis’ Fury book has a certain controversial reputation to live up to. The first series he wrote managed to kill the George Clooney-starring film adaptation, so horrified by the comic were Clooney’s people. This event eventually saw Bill Jemas pushed out of Marvel. How will Ennis top that his time? I’m not sure the […]
Earlier this week, I ran a piece previewing the Tripwire Annual 2009, shipping next month. Tripwire is a long-running occasional comics-and-film magazine, with a unique style and design. It’s an accessible intelligent product. A good read, an engaging tone, even a collectable item in its own right, if you’re into that kind of thing. But its latest issue, the […]
