Benedict Cumberbatch Is Doctor Strange

Benedict-Strange-529x360

Benedict Cumberbatch, the star of “Sherlock,” The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and the upcoming The Imitation Game, has taken the leading role in Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange!

Doctor Strange is based on the character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, who made his first appearance in 1963’s “Strange Tales” #110. It follows the adventures of Stephen Strange (nodded at in this year’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier), a brilliant neurosurgeon who, following a car accident, loses precision in his hands. His quest to regain his former skills sets Strange on a path to become the “Master of the Mystic Arts.”

Although no official release date has been set for the film, the time table for production would lead one to believe that Doctor Strange will land on the July 8, 2016 release date that Marvel has already bookmarked for a theatrical release.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release “The Jimi Hendrix Experience” Print By Max Dalton On October 29, 2014

Dark Hall Mansion is so very excited to share one of their absolute favorite releases ever, Max Dalton’s “The Jimi Hendrix Experience.”

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Authentic Hendrix, will release 3 very special, limited, and select edition prints of Max’s interpretation of Jimi Hendrix within a particularly intimate and quite unusual setting. Max’s vision is informed and shaped not only as artist but as a longtime guitar player himself, his admiration and respect for Jimi’s music and influence, both as guitarist and artist, is also equally undeniable. Max’s vision of Jimi before a wall of guitars, all specifically known to have been owned and played by Jimi, is simply fantastic. From the faded wallpaper and still burning classic axe to Jimi’s gear and stylish hat, it’s soulful, the very essence of Jimi.

“The Jimi Hendrix Experience” limited edition prints go on sale next Wednesday, October 29th on Dark Hall Mansion’s dedicated store page here: http://www.darkhallmansionstore.com/ at a random time between 9:30 AM PST and 12 PM PST.

NBC Announces Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas TV Special

75

NBC is bringing in the holiday spirit with a stop-motion hourlong animated special, “Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas,” set to air Tuesday, December 16, 2014 at 8:00 pm ET/PT. Based on the popular film Elf and the hit Broadway show “Elf: The Musical,” the special will star four-time Emmy Award winner Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”) as Buddy.

“Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas” combines the humor and spirit of both the beloved 2003 holiday film, which drew glowing reviews and earned $173 million at the domestic box office, and the hit Broadway production. The special is an all-new retelling of Buddy’s delightfully absurd yet heartwarming story and blends the look and feel of the stop-motion animated Christmas specials of the past with the sharp sensibility of the modern-day classic holiday film.

Santa narrates the story of Buddy’s travels to New York City to meet the father he never knew he had. Along the way his unrelenting cheer transforms the lives of everyone he meets and opens his father’s eyes to the magic of Christmas.

The voice cast also includes Mark Hamill, Ed Asner, Fred Armisen, Jay Leno, Matt Lauer, Gilbert Gottfried, Kate Micucci, Rachael MacFarlane, Max Charles and Steve Higgins.

There are nine songs in the special, including “Happy All the Time,” “A Christmas Song” and “Nobody Cares About Santa Claus.”

“Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas” is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, directed by Mark Caballero and Seamus Walsh, teleplay by Thomas Meehan & Bob Martin and Aaron Horvath & Michael Jelenic.

MONDO Announces Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Lil Mikey Figure Available For Pre-Order

1

MONDO has annnounced their first toy release, Lil Mikey, available for pre-order today! Lil MIkey will retail for $105, which includes free worldwide shipping.

Lil Mikey is a 9″ vinyl figure based on the Michaelangelo TMNT illustration by Mike Mitchell from his Just Like Us series. Here’s what Mike Mitchell had to say about the project:

“If I had $5 when I was a kid, it was going to be spent on a ninja turtle figure. So much of my childhood was defined by TMNT, I watched every episode, I had the toys, the shirts, the games, the comics. I wish I could say “Lil Mikey” was a dream come true, but I never could have fathomed this happening. When I was in art school in Chicago, I dropped into Rotofugi, an awesome gallery/designer toy shop that I frequently rode by and not five minutes into it, I was hooked on designer toys. I hardly had any money in those days, but I loved stopping by when I could as the toys were very inspiring to me. I’ve wanted to make a toy ever since, and I couldn’t have asked for a better one to start with.

It’s not super easy to get a toy made, it requires capital and various experienced parties. But this has been an extremely rewarding experience, thanks to Dan Willett at Unboxed and Justin Ishmael, who has sort of been my partner in crime during this. We’re both huge toy dudes, and have enjoyed the process of seeing this come together through various people around the world. I can’t wait for the finished product. I don’t have any of my own work hanging up in my house, but this will 100% be occupying a shelf.”

After working with Dan Willett and Brock Otterbacher over the past year to make the Lil MIkey figure a reality, MONDO is proud to present this beautiful crafted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figure!
