The Ultimate Collection Featuring All Four ALIEN Films Hatches On
Blu-ray from October 25 With Never-Before-Seen Bonus Material And The Debut Of The Exclusive and Groundbreaking Interactive Experience, MU-TH-UR Mode

Fans Have A Chance To Board The Nostromo During Comic-Con At Booth #3528 And Enter The Hibernation Chamber Of The Doomed Intergalactic Crew

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 15, 2010) – Sometimes, the scariest things come from within. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents one of the most successful and terrifying film franchises of all time when the ALIEN ANTHOLOGY debuts on Blu-ray for the first time ever from October 25 internationally and on October 26 in North America. All four ALIEN films have been reinvigorated for an intense Blu-ray high-definition viewing experience. The release also marks the debut of MU-TH-UR Mode, a fully interactive companion that takes the extensive materials in the ALIEN ANTHOLOGY and puts them in the user’s hand – connecting fans to special features on all six discs and instantly providing an index of all available ALIEN content, including over 60 hours of special features and over 12,000 images.

The ALIEN ANTHOLOGY is a truly unique home entertainment experience. For the first time ever, the studio has united the material from every home video release of the ALIEN saga including the 1991/1992 laserdisc releases, the 1999 “Legacy” release and 2003’s groundbreaking ALIEN QUADRILOGY release into one complete Blu-ray collection. The set also includes two versions of each film and over four hours of previously unreleased exclusive material such as original screentests of Sigourney Weaver prior to filming the original ALIEN, unseen deleted scenes, thousands of still photographs from the Fox archives, the previously unseen original cut of “Wreckage and Rage: The Making of ALIEN3,” and much, much more.

The ALIEN ANTHOLOGY will be available for a suggested retail price of $139.99 U.S. / $179.99 Canada. Prebook is September 22.

The ALIEN ANTHOLOGY is just one aspect of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment’s yearlong campaign to honor the studio’s 75th birthday. This year the division will debut several select fan-favorites on Blu-ray for the first time ever including The Rocky Horror Picture Show, William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, The Last of the Mohicans and The Sound of Music.

Comicon Death Inducers # 3

Let it begin.

Marvel's slew of comic book flicks and their massive blitzing of media for said films starts.  Comicon will be COVERED in this like a slick sheen of sweat on the face of a Hall H line stander while they bake outside.

First up is Ryan (six pack abs) Reynolds as Hal Jordan on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.


Booya.  Nice muscle and tendond look thing they've got going on with the suit.  Until I see it in action I'm not impressed yet.  I agree with others that I've seen photoshops better than this cover.  But it makes me happy to finally see Hal getting love.

But I'm FAR more excited about this


We've always known Anthony Hopkins was a god.  But damn...he LOOKS RAWRSOME AS ODIN.

(oh and Thor looks good too)

I can't wait for Thor.  I could be completely nuts, but this makes me happy.  I can't wait to see footage on this.


And of course we can't post about the Marvel movies without commenting on the lunacy that is Edward Norton and his bullshit move by Marvel screw over.  I've made clear how I feel on that I think.

Moving on to the new casting of Banner.  We've went from Joaquin Phoenix to now Mark Ruffalo.  I like neither. Now we've got a David Tennant rumor.  I like this far more, but he needs to be sporting a green question mark and running away from Batman.  I've thrown my hat into the ring behind Sharlto Copley.   He's perfect in my opinion. 

I know we won't get the final answer on the Banner casting until Comcion and whomever it is walks out on stage.  But I can only hope Marvel makes up for the cluster ass way they screwed over Norton by giving us someone equally as good and dedicated to giving the Hulk and Banner the respect and due they deserve.

San Diego Comic Con 2010 is just two weeks away, and Jazwares and Cartoon Network Enterprises are proud to announce the availability of the very first figure from the highly-anticipated Robot Chicken toy line!

Toys“R”Us Exclusive "Convention Nerd" from Jazwares!

Now, fans can recreate their favorite Robot Chicken parodies, such as the Nerd’s visit to a Sci-Fi convention with this
5-inch action figure Complete with a Top Hat, Sandwich, Magical Unicorn Mayonnaise Jar, Adult Swim swag bag and a 2010 San Diego Comic-Con t-shirt, the iconic Robot Chicken Nerd character is ready to geek out with fans.

"Convention Nerd" will ONLY be available at Entertainment Earth's booth #2343 throughout the con and on Toysrus.com for $20*. 

Plus fans can come meet the creators of Adult Swim's Emmy Award-winning Robot Chicken and get their Convention Nerd autographed when Seth Green and Matt Senreich will be signing the figure at Entertainment Earth's booth #2343 Friday, July 23 from 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Things I'll die for at Comicon #1

This is the Tron Disney Exclusive SDCC figure.  I can assure you a riot will break out when this goes on sale.


Per Vinylgoddess it sounds like they are going to limit the hell out of them.  So if you are going and planning on snagging one of these puppies, do it first thing as soon as the doors open.

I'll be posting more of these exclusives that will be available throughout the coming days.


Marvel Smack down

Conflict in the world of the Avengers today as Marvel hands Edward Norton his walking papers


In a statement sent in direct response to yesterday's story from the set of "Captain America" in London, Marvel Studios President of Production Kevin Feige forwarded the following exclusively to HitFix:


"We have made the decision to not bring Ed Norton back to portray the title role of Bruce Banner in the Avengers. Our decision is definitely not one based on monetary factors, but instead rooted in the need for an actor who embodies the creativity and collaborative spirit of our other talented cast members. The Avengers demands players who thrive working as part of an ensemble, as evidenced by Robert, Chris H, Chris E, Sam, Scarlett, and all of our talented casts. We are looking to announce a name actor who fulfills these requirements, and is passionate about the iconic role in the coming weeks."

HitFlix is saying they think Sharlto Copley is a possiblity for the new Banner.  And yes, this makes me WAY conflicted.

1st  I'm a Norton fan.  And this is just a bullshit play.  Norton is amazing and he brought his A game to The Hulk because he's a fan.  This is just totally unfair to him and just plain mean.  Marvel may be getting a surprise in their response to any grand announcement at Comicon which I could totally see happening.  But fans are fans...we'll still go see a Whedon directed Avengers flick.  Because god we've been waiting for one for a long time.

2nd  Copley who is no where near confirmed would be perfect for it.  But still...this is just a bullshit play.  If this had gone down with just Norton not wanting to come back that would be one thing...but its not that at all.  At this point, the only way Marvel could make me alright with this is Copley or Stephen Colbert as Banner. 



Roll the dice of your life.





A Rare Glimpse Into the World of Dungeons & Dragons Fanatics and the Powerful and Poignant Effect the Role-Playing Game Has Had on Them Comes to DVD From FilmBuff on August 3, 2010


New York, NY (July 7, 2010) – Some board games are merely played. Others are lived. Among the latter, none is more obsessed over than Dungeons & Dragons, the enduringly popular fantasy role-playing board game in which a roll of the oddly angled dice can alter a character’s life. But for some dedicated players, the game has altered their actual lives. Three such fanatics are profiled in THE DUNGEON MASTERS, an eye-opening film from the critically acclaimed director, Keven McAllester (You’re Gonna Miss Me) coming to DVD from FilmBuff and MPI Media Group on August 3, 2010, with an SRP of $19.98.


What the hit comedy feature Role Models did for live-action role-playing game enthusiasts, THE DUNGEON MASTERS does for devoted table-top players. Dungeons & Dragons is no mere game to Richard, Scott and Elizabeth, the people at the center of this entertaining and ultimately moving documentary. Against the backdrop of crumbling middle-class America, these three struggling adults devote their lives to Dungeons & Dragons, the storied role-playing game introduced in 1974. One player is a sanitation worker who lures friends into a “Sphere of Annihilation.” Another is an evil “drow-elf” displaced by Hurricane Katrina. And one is a failed supervillain who starts a cable access show involving ninjas, puppets and a cooking segment.


But the baroque fantasies of these three clash with their mundane real lives, and they gradually come to realize that the game’s imaginary triumphs can’t completely mask the very real disappointments of life. The beauty of Keven McAlester’s film is in revealing his subjects’ real-life heroism: summoning the courage to face hardships head on. Along the way, THE DUNGEON MASTERS reimagines the themes of classic heroic cinema, creating an intimate portrait of struggles and triumphs.


The Austin Chronicle’s Richard Whittaker said of THE DUNGEON MASTERS: “McAlester’s film cuts with sensitivity through the nerdy facade to the dedication its subjects show to their hobby in the toughest of times.” Kevin Kelly of Indiewire called it “a well-crafted film that … gives you an unflinching look at three people who have made gaming one of their creative outlets.”


Since its debut in the 1970s, the role-playing board game Dungeons and Dragons
has sold more than 20 million copies. It has spawned two feature films and dozens of books; all told, sales of the game and related books, DVDs and equipment have surpassed $1 billion.


THE DUNGEON MASTERS was an Official Selection at the Toronto International Film Festival and the South by Southwest Film Festival.



July Centerfold of the Month

Wow, we haven't done one of these in a LONG time.

But well, I'm picking it this time..and not surprisingly its this guy.

Mr. July
Sharlto Copley

Born 27 November 27th 1973

Why did we pick him?

Really?  Look at that smile!  Okay fine, if that's not good enough for you.  The man starred in one of the best sci-fi films of the last ten years, a little movie called District 9.  D9 (as we fans call it) was for its majority IMPROVISED.  This only adds to Sharlto's awesome cred as he hadn't acted in a major film before. 


He's from South Africa and has over his career both written, produced, directed, and now starred in films.  He's also been involved in "risque school plays" (footage now please!) 

He was actually just helping out with test shots when Peter Jackson said "He's the guy."  And history was made.

Sharlto is one of those naturals when it comes to the movies.  He's smart and funny, and like Robert Rodriguez or Peter Jackson has the ability to do nearly everything. 


He's also a Fanboy himself and got to do some squeeing when he donned the baseball cap and leather jacket of the crazy pilot Murdock in the A-Team movie this summer.  Of course Sharlto knocked it out of the park and stole every scene he was in.


Sharlto needs to do more stuff so we can watch him do more stuff.  It's that simple.  The rumor was on a recent sci-fi film called "I am Number Four" Mr. Copley wasn't happy with the new alien he was playing.  He and director DJ Caruso disagreed on his look for the movie (Sharlto wanted his character to have a funny nose and strange ears.)  Sharlto stuck to his guns and when the director wouldn't let him do it, he quit.  Timothy Olyphant is now doing the role. 

But don't despair Sharltolites, he's got a new flick he produced/wrote/and directed coming out starring another Fangirl fave, Rutger Hauer.  Check this creepy out (ooh, he likes supernatural things...I think its love)

So in closing....Sharlto Copley, do more stuff so we can watch you be your awesome self.  You personify that Fangirl ideal in a man:  brains, talent, humor, and you top it all off by being really pretty.  Hence you are our centerfold of the month.

Multi Talented is always nice

I make no excuse for my love of Sharlto Copley.  The guy is mutli talented and has the looks of the love child of David Tennant and Christian Bale.  He's also made of epicness. 

He's finally gotten a film he's been working on getting released for two years coming out.  He directed, wrote, and prodcued it.  Spoon stars Rutger Hauer (another epic piece of epicness) and looks wonderfully creepy.  My love is justified it would seem.

Dead Rising is Rising

The release date is announced for the sequel to one of the most badass zombie titles ever.   Grab your guitar and start slamming heads!

We are happy to confirm today that one of our most hotly anticipated titles of the Fall, Dead Rising 2, is set for release across North America on September 28, 2010. Sequel to the million plus seller, Dead Rising, and set in the gambling paradise of Fortune City, Dead Rising 2 introduces a new main character, Chuck Greene, and 1000’s of new zombies in this darkly comedic, no holds-barred action title.
