Get A First Look At Aquaman In This Week’s Issue of Entertainment Weekly

This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story is on the highly anticipated stand-alone Aquaman movie starring Jason Momoa.

Aquaman is Warner Bros. and DC’s biggest swing yet, betting huge on a character who was mocked in pop culture for decades. Tapping hulking Game of Thrones star Momoa to introduce a fresh take on the half-Atlantean, half-human Arthur Curry across two previous superhero ensemble films was merely the first step. The next was tapping acclaimed director James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Furious 7) to deliver a fantasy film coming Dec. 21 that’s unlike any we’ve seen before.

Behind The Scenes of TIME’s Drones Cover 

To front its June 11 issue with the coverline “The Drone Age,” now on newsstands, TIME magazine collaborated with Intel to send a massive fleet of 958 drones skyward and into precise formation to form the newsweekly’s logo and trademark red border. The drones were then shot by another drone, also suspended in midair.

The result was one of the biggest drone shows ever produced in the U.S., so of course it drew some attention. One Folsom, Calif., resident interviewed by a local news reporter recounted, “Up in the sky, I saw the future.”

Deadpool 2 Is The Filthy, Foulmouthed Sequel You’ve Been Waiting For

Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool and the focus of this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story.

Deadpool 2, opening May 18, finds the titular red-suited assassin otherwise known as Wade Wilson battling time traveler Cable (Josh Brolin); protecting a fire-wielding mutant youth named Russell (Hunt for the Wilderpeople’s Julian Dennison); assembling a motley crew of mutants he calls X-Force, an offshoot of the X-Men; and encountering a smorgasbord of superhero and celebrity cameos. Says Reynolds, “The first movie is a love story masquerading as a comic book movie, and this one is kind of a family film masquerading as a comic book film again.”

Mad Magazine’s New Look Revealed at WonderCon 2018

Fans in attendance at WonderCon 2018 in Anaheim, California got a tease of what the revamped Mad Magazine will look like.

After 66 years as a comedy institution, MAD Magazine is undergoing substantial change. The magazine will reboot to issue #1 after issue #549. 30 year editor John Ficarra retired and the magazine will now be steered by illustrator and comic book artist Bill Morrison. Also, after many, many years in Manhattan (first on Madison ave and then on Broadway), the magazine shifted offices to California. 

MAD was created by Harvey Kurtzman and published by Bill Gaines in 1952 under the EC comics imprint. EC remained the publisher until Gaines sold it to Kinney Parking Company in the 60s. Through a series of mergers and acquisitions, the company eventually fell under the DC Comics umbrella and has remained there since.

MAD #1 will go on sale April 18, 2018.

MAD Magazine Will Reboot In April

MAD Magazine will be rebooted with a new #1 and a new look when it moves to California later this year, DC co-publisher Dan DiDio revealed on his Facebook page.

MAD Magazine #550, on sale now, will mark the final issue of the current volume of the magazine, which launched at EC Comics in 1952 before being taken over by DC after EC crumbled in the mid-‘50s.

A new #1 will launch in April, likely timed as close to April Fools’ Day as possible. April 1 has long been recognized as the symbolic birthday of MAD mascot Alfred E. Neuman, whose gap-toothed visage has graced the cover of the magazine for decades. A version with his teeth and hair “fixed” appears on a promotional image for the new MAD #1, which will be edited by longtime Bongo Comics veteran Bill Morrison.

Fangoria Magazine Is Resurrected From The Dead

Cinestate, a Texas-based entertainment company, completed the deal to acquire all the assets and trademarks of the Fangoria brand, including the horror movie magazine, from The Brooklyn Company. Fangoria Magazine will move from digital-only back to print and a new editor-in-chief with Phil Nobile, and a new publisher with a new first issue readying to drop on Halloween.

Nobile comes to Fangoria from his role as editor-at-large for the website Birth.Movies.Death. He will be based out of New Jersey and act as the creative director for the entire Fangoria brand. Cinestate CEO Dallas Sonnier, who had pursued the deal for months, is the new publisher. As part of the arrangement, Cinestate controls all material from over 300 issues of Fangoria Magazine, which means all articles, photos, and exclusive interviews, spanning the past 39 years.

Cinestate says it will further develop Fangoria into a brand for producing movies and podcasts, as well as publishing horror novels.

Fangoria’s previous columnists Tony Timpone and Michael Gingold are returning to the magazine with their own columns, and to consult for the company. Zack Parker, formerly of Shudder, joins Fangoria as the director of brand management, along with Jessica Safavimehr as Associate Publisher and Ashley Detmering as Art Director for the magazine.
