Mondo To Release Deadpool Posters On February 12, 2015

Finally, Deadpool is in theaters. The journey to get this movie made has been supremely interesting and what arrives on screens looks to be an insanely true-to-character and iconic representation of The Merc with a Mouth. To celebrate its release, Mondo will have all new posters both from Phantom City Creative and the co-creator of Deadpool himself, Rob Liefeld. Mondo is extremely honored to have had the opportunity to work with Rob on a 13-color screen print for a character he created, along with Phantom City’s take on the more self-referential aspects of the character.

Please follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement. These posters will be available online at a random time on Friday, February 12th.

New Life-Size, Voice-Controlled BB-8 Toy To Premiere At 2016 New York Toy Fair

The 2016 New York Toy Fair kicks off this weekend and it may just be showcasing a dream come true for any Star Wars the Force Awakens fan. Many fans quickly purchased their own little BB-8 toy last year by the toy maker Sphero but may have wished that their droid friend was more true to the original.

This weekend company Spin Master will reveal their own version of the famous droid BB-8. Their droid will be over 16-inches tall, remote controlled and for the first time respond to your voice commands.

This BB-8 toy will respond when you say its name, roll over to you when you call it and even has a Follow Me mode so he can always be by your side. This BB-8 will also come with lights and authentic sound effects from the movie.

Unfortunately we won’t see this collectible toy out in the market until later this Fall and he will also cost you $180.

Stephen King Discusses The Dark Tower Movie With Rolling Stone

1

“I think that it’s more likely than not that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be in it,” says the author about long-awaited adaptation

Rumors of a big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s epic Dark Tower saga have circulated for years, with everyone from Javier Bardem to Russell Crowe attached to the ambitious project. Most recently, Idris Elba has been said to be in the running for the lead role of Gunslinger Roland Deschain, with Matthew McConaughey as the mysterious Man In Black. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, King says there there might actually be real progress on the project. “It looks to me like it’s more likely than not it’ll happen at this point,” he says. “Let’s put it that way.”

Even better: The latest casting rumors appear to be correct. “I think that it’s more likely than not that Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey will be in it,” King says. “But I can’t say with any certainty. I know that they’re trying to make deals with these actors [and] with Sony, and that’s the extent of my knowledge.” In the past, plans for The Dark Tower have included a series of movies connected by a televised mini series, though its unclear if they’re still going with that approach.

Paramount Pictures has released a 10 Cloverfield Lane Super Bowl spot.

About the Bad Robot film, producer J.J. Abrams confirmed it’s not a direct sequel to the 2008 Matt Reeves film and said: “The idea came up a long time ago during production. We wanted to make it a blood relative of ‘Cloverfield.’ The idea was developed over time. We wanted to hold back the title for as long as possible.”

Directed by Dan Trachtenberg, the March 11, 2016 release stars John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and John Gallagher Jr. The script was written by Josh Campbell and Matthew Stuecken.

The airing of the commercial kicks off a virtual hunt for Marvel-themed Coca-Cola Mini Cans, which feature six of the world’s best-known heroes – Hulk, Ant-Man, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man and Falcon. Each day through February 14, Coca-Cola will release hidden clues through its social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat. Each individual “Easter egg” will unlock a limited number of cans and provide fans directions for the chance to obtain a limited edition six-pack of their own. Marvel-themed, limited-edition Coca-Cola Mini Cans are not available for sale in retail outlets – and only available while supplies last.

Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man can next be seen in Captain America: Civil War on May 6, 2016 and will appear in a follow-up to his own film with Ant-Man and the Wasp on July 6, 2018.

The Hulk will not be appearing with his fellow Avengers in Captain America: Civil War but will appear alongside Chris Hemsworth’s Thor in Thor: Ragnarok, set to debut in theaters on November 3, 2017.

Though this marks the first time these two heroes have appeared together on screen, it likely won’t be the last with Avengers: Infinity War, set to feature upwards of 60 characters, debuting in two parts on May 4, 2018 and May 3, 2019.

Watch The X-Men: Apocalypse Super Bowl Spot

z_0

20th Century Fox has brought the X-Men: Apocalypse Super Bowl spot online and though last time Magneto was lifting stadiums off the ground, this time things are a little more global in terms of destruction.

Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshiped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. As the fate of the Earth hangs in the balance, Raven (Jennifer Lawrence) with the help of Professor X (James McAvoy) must lead a team of young X-Men to stop their greatest nemesis and save mankind from complete destruction.

X-Men: Apocalypse stars James McAvoy as Charles Xaver, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira MacTaggert, Lucas Till as Havok and newcomers Alexandra Shipp as Storm, Sophie Turner as Jean Grey, Ben Hardy as Angel, Tye Sheridan as Cyclops, Olivia Munn as Psylocke and Lana Condor as Jubilee. Oscar Isaac is starring as the film’s title antagonist.

Said to be the conclusion of a trilogy started with X-Men: First Class and continued with X-Men: Days of Future Past, the Bryan Singer-directed X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016.
