Robotech Anime Adaptation Hires Nic Mathieu To Direct

By: Sean O’Connell Just in case audiences responded favorably to Guillermo Del Toro’s robots-versus-monsters blockbuster Pacific Rim (which is expected), Hollywood wants to make sure it has rival sci-fi/tech/robot/battle projects in the pipeline. As a result, Rim studio Warner Bros. has decided to move ahead with a big-budget adaptation of the anime series Robotech, officially tapping a director for the gig. Nic Mathieu, a CGI-friendly commercial director, will make his feature-film debut with Warner’s sprawling Robotech project, The Hollywood Reporter notes. So what is Robotech? The Japanese anime ran for 85 episodes, airing []

Week 4 2013 Pt. 2

Blue Beetle #16 Bufferworld He better be okay or I am going to freak out!  Now, that aside, I am interesting how this is going to play out in the Threshold comic.  I love the Blue Beetle comic and I love how grown up Jaime is for his age.  He takes charge and is able to hold his own as well as think on his feet.  That’s one of the main reasons why I love this comic, because of the great characterization.  []

By:  Eric Eisenberg If you thought that Electro was going to be the only notable comic book villain present in Marc Webb’s upcoming Amazing Spider-Man sequel, then it turns out you were just a little bit misguided. But what will really surprise you is the Oscar nominated star the production is talking to now about playing the part.

What Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 Will Take From PCs

By: Mark Walton If the many rumours and supposed leaks surrounding the Xbox 720 and PlayStation 4 are to be believed–and according to GameSpot’s sources there’s every reason to–both will represent a dramatic change in console architecture. With the exception of the original Xbox–which was based on an Intel Pentium III–consoles have traditionally relied on custom processors and graphics hardware to power them. The Xbox 360, for instance, uses a custom 3.2GHz PowerPC processor, while the PlayStation 3 uses Cell, itself also based on PowerPC architecture. Traditionally, []

Completely adorable I love how the concept of this episode was so relevant to what’s happening today in society ask someone who lives in Boston I’m totally familiar with the flu epidemic so I loved it and thought the representation of what’s going on is awesome. Personally I love how Wade and Zoe are together and took care of each other when the other was sick, I think they are adorable and their chemistry is so cool and then how the writers []

Evil Dead Remake Got NC-17 Rating On First Try

By: Katey Rich Even though it’s a remake of a much-beloved cult horror movie, the upcoming take on The Evil Dead has been doing a great job marketing itself to skeptics, namely by promising over and over again that it’s scarier than anything you’ll ever see. They proved it, too, at New York Comic Con last fall, showing off footage so gory and weird that even hard-core horror fans were impressed. We don’t know yet what will wind up in the final cut of the []
