New Poster For The ABC Series Premiere of Marvel’s Agent Carter Debuts

Marvel Entertainment and ABC have debuted a brand new poster for the upcoming “Marvel’s Agent Carter”.

It’s 1946 and peace has dealt Agent Peggy Carter a serious blow as she finds herself marginalized when the men return home from fighting abroad. Working for the covert SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve), Peggy finds herself stuck doing administrative work when she would rather be back out in the field, putting her vast skills into play and taking down the bad guys. But she is also trying to navigate life as a single woman in America, in the wake of losing the love of her life, Steve Rogers – a.k.a. Captain America. When old acquaintance Howard Stark finds himself being framed for unleashing his deadliest weapons to anyone willing to pony up the cash, he contacts Peggy — the only person he can trust — to track down those responsible, dispose of the weapons and clear his name. He empowers his butler, Edwin Jarvis, to be at her beck and call when needed to help assist her as she investigates and tracks down those responsible for selling these weapons of mass destruction. If caught going on these secret missions for Stark, Peggy could be targeted as a traitor and spend the rest of her days in prison – or worse.

Starring Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, Chad Michael Murray as SSR Agent Jack Thompson, Enver Gjokaj as SSR Agent Daniel Sousa, James D’Arcy as Edwin Jarvis, and Shea Whigham as SSR Chief Roger Dooley, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” was written by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Executive producers are Tara Butters, Michele Fazekas, Christopher Markus, Stephen McFeely, Chris Dingess, Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Joe Quesada, Stan Lee and Jeph Loeb.

“Marvel’s Agent Carter” is set to premiere January 6, 2015 on ABC.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release A Charlie Brown Christmas Print By Nicolas Delort On November 25, 2014

Dark Hall Mansion’s yearly holiday tradition continues with the timeless classic that’s informed Christmas and the holiday season for almost 50 years, Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 masterpiece, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” this year beautifully and evocatively rendered by artist, Nicolas Delort. Flawlessly written by Charles Schulz, beautifully directed and animated by Bill Melendez and team, and of course, brilliantly scored by Vince Guaraldi, this film, perhaps more than any other, quietly, humorously, and evocatively reminds us in poetic and lyrical fashion just what the true meaning of Christmas really is.

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Peanuts Worldwide, takes us back to our collective memory of gathering about the TV while awaiting Christmas and the holidays and having Guaraldi’s first gentle jazz passages signal the season truly was upon us. Charles M. Schulz’s 1965 masterpiece is timeless, precisely because its profound emotional resonance is as relevant today as it will be in another fifty years and beyond. Artist Nicolas Delort, who brought such pathos to Dark Hall Mansion’s “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” again brings his distinctive and highly detailed style to bear rendering Charlie’s contemplation of the true meaning of Christmas a quiet and personal one.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas” limited edition prints go on sale next Tuesday, November 25th 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. All editions measure 18″ x 24″ and are fully screen printed.

“A Charlie Brown Christmas” Standard Edition of 375 $65

Starz Orders Evil Dead Sequel Series For 2015

EvilDead_GQ_15Nov12_pr_b_960x1440

Starz announced today the greenlight of the network’s next original series, the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise

The Evil Dead. The project reteams the original filmmakers, director Sam Raimi, with longtime producing partner Rob Tapert and star Bruce Campbell.

The Starz Original series officially titled “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” will be 10 half-hour episodes.  Bruce Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.  When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal.  Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

“Starz first worked with Sam and Rob on ‘Spartacus,’ and we are thrilled to be back in business with them,” said Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director of Starz.  “With Sam writing and directing and Bruce Campbell returning to the screen, we are certain the show will give Evil Dead fans around the world the fix they’ve been craving.”

“Evil Dead has always been a blast. Bruce, Rob, and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell the next chapter in Ash’s lame, but heroic saga.  With his chainsaw arm and his ‘boomstick,’
Ash is back to kick some monster butt. And brother, this time there’s a truckload of it,” said
Sam Raimi.

“I’m really excited to bring this series to the Evil Dead fans worldwide – it’s going to be everything they have been clamoring for: serious deadite ass-kicking and plenty of outrageous humor,” said Bruce Campbell.

“Starz has always been a great creative partner and we are excited to be working with them on this project,” said Robert Tapert.

Raimi will direct the first episode.  “Ash Vs. Evil Dead” was written by Sam Raimi, Ivan Raimi (Darkman, Army of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell) and Tom Spezialy (“Chuck,” “Reaper,” “Desperate Housewives”).  Sam Raimi will also serve as executive producer, along with Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, “Spartacus,” Xena: Warrior Princess”) and Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”).  Ivan Raimi will Co-Executive Produce and Aaron Lam (“Spartacus”) will serve as producer.

The original Evil Dead film followed Ash and his friends who travel to a cabin in the woods, where they unknowingly release demons intent on possessing the living.  The film became an international success and is critically lauded to this day as one of the best horror movies of all time.  It also spawned a media franchise, including two sequels, as well as video games and comic books and a recent reboot that grossed $97 million worldwide.

75 Years, 75 Batmen

Screen Shot 2014-11-01 at 9.38.43 PM

Millionaire Bruce Wayne was just a child when he watched his parents get gunned down during a mugging in Gotham City. The crime would define his life, as he dedicated himself to becoming the world’s greatest weapon against crime—the Batman.

The Dark Knight is the most feared superhero of all, because he’s pushed himself to the absolute pinnacle of human achievement. He’s a brilliant detective who’s mastered fighting techniques the world’s barely heard of.

An Olympic-caliber athlete with a plan for every occasion, Batman out maneuvers his foes with the greatest of ease. But in his crusade against injustice, two questions always loom: How far will he go to protect the innocent, and will he sacrifice his humanity along the way?

final bat masks blog_535eec43b2dc17.02673734

First appearing in 1939, Batman was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. In 75 years, Batman has progressed to become one third of DC’s Trinity along with Superman and Wonder Woman, fellow flagship icons/franchises for DC Comics.

Celebrate Batman’s 75th Anniversary with this visual trip through his past. Discover how Batman’s look has evolved since his humble beginning as we journey through 75 of his batsuits, drawn by everyone from Bob Kane to Greg Capullo!

Ladbrokes Designed ‘Homeland’ Playing Cards in Celebration of The New Season

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 5.39.49 AM

The popular TV drama ‘Homeland’ returns to the screens for another season. In celebration of the start of season four of the series starring Claire Danes in the role of a mentally unstable CIA officer, the betting company Ladbrokes has designed some exclusive playing cards featuring some of the show’s characters such as Brody and Carrie as the Royal cards.

King

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 5.43.30 AM

 The King card features an illustrated version of Nicholas Brody. Played by Damian Lewis, Brody was supposed to be a temporary character according to the Sydney Morning Herald. Brody is a sergeant in the U.S. Marines who was captured by al-Qaeda. He spent eight years as a prisoner of war and upon his release he returns to the US. Carrie suspects him of having been turned into an al-Qaeda operative. Brody has trouble reconnecting with his wife and his two children. He becomes Carrie’s love interest before leaving the series at the end of season 3.

 Queen

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 5.45.31 AM

The Queen card pays tribute to bipolar protagonist Carrie Mathison, played by Claire Danes. Carrie is a very intelligent, intense CIA officer who suspects Brody of being an al-Qaeda terrorist. She tries to find proof for her suspicion but the two end up getting romantically involved. The card features a saxophone, thus alluding to Carrie’s love for jazz and the unpredictable and messy way in which her mind works.

 Jack

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 5.47.31 AM

The Jack card is dedicated to Saul Berenson in the form of two USB sticks. Saul, played by Mandy Patinkin, is the Middle East Division Chief at the CIA. He has been with the CIA for over 35 years. Saul deeply cares for Carrie, whom he considers to be his protégé. Despite her odd methods, he stands by her and protects her whenever he can. He is married to Mira but because Saul usually puts his work before his family, their relationship isn’t always easy.

Ace

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 5.49.59 AM

 Seeing as the whole series is about a CIA officer and her work it isn’t surprising that the Ace playing card is dedicated to the American intelligence-gathering agency CIA. An eagle is prominently displayed in the middle of the card.

The beautiful playing cards were especially designed in celebration of the latest season of the popular show. You can take a closer look at the ‘Homeland’ playing cards on the Ladbrokes website. It also features playing card sets of other popular TV series such as ‘Game of Thrones’.

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.
