Since I’m registered as a member of the dreaded press (boo, hiss), I’m being bombarded with press releases from New York Comic Con (NYCC), which will consume Manhattan’s Javits Center beginning this Thursday—woohoo! I’m Ctrl C/Ctrl V-ing the better ones (if you find typos, blame them, I make enough of my own), so you can [...]
Geeky Friday | Wolverine 2 Images, Rowling’s Casual Hint, Expanded JAWS Memories, Titan Books at NY Comic Con, Clone Wars Alert!
The first publicity images from the new Wolverine flick are surfacing. Even though the initial Wolvie Origins was mediocre, fanboys/girls can’t get enough of Hugh Jackman rocking the claws. Here’s Logan ripped and ready to kick wholesale ass (I know HJ is in unbelievable shape, but those abs look suspiciously shopped): And another with him [...]
Greetings from Filth City! Earlier this week, the results of a survey conducted by Travel & Leisure magazine revealed that New York is the nation’s dirtiest metropolis. Gee, what a shock. Any subway rat or tenement roach could have told you that! Not Too Dredd-ful Shockingly, the reviews for Dredd 3D actually are decent. [...]
Geeky Friday | Scammed Rowling Tickets Go Poof!, Adult Swim NY ComicCon Schedule, Scary Muppets, Indy Marathon Last Call
To promote her forthcoming book, The Casual Vacancy, which is being billed as her first title for adults, J.K. Rowling will be making a single appearance at Lincoln Center on October 16. Due to what is being categorized as a “security breach,” some crooked bastard tried to turn it into a double appearance by putting [...]
Caught Raiders of the Lost Ark in IMAX this weekend, and it was an unforgettable experience. This movie would have been fun on any screen, but it was simply incredible in the Goliath IMAX format. The audio systems in those theaters also are killer, so the sounds perfectly accompany the visuals (and god bless sound [...]

Geeky Friday | S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Pilot, Stephen King Trivia Books/Carrie Remake, On the Road Trailer, Spider Man Turns 50!
The Avengers Blu-ray is only a month away, and producers have leaked this gag reel that will be included in the release. Fun stuff. Female Expendables? The popularity of The Expendables series—the second installment raked in a respectable $28 million at its box office debut last weekend—has fueled the notion for a female version with [...]
Geeky Friday | IDW Releasing Star Trek/Judge Dredd Reprints, Indy IMAX Orgasm, RIP SF Author Harry Harrison

Geeky Friday | Dark Knight Trilogy: The Complete Screenplays, Spielberg’s Lincoln Biopic, Pictures from Mars
Steven Spielberg’s anticipated biopic Lincoln finally has a releases date. Although the film apparently has been in the can awhile, with the November election looming, Spielberg didn’t want the film to be seen as political, so shelved it for a more suitable time (when you’re Spielberg you can do that). Entertainment Weekly has snagged this [...]
