Few graphic novels have had such lingering impacts on the world of comics and film, but Frank Miller's seminal work "Sin City" is one of the enduring handful.

The Woes Of A Die Hard Prequel As Die Hard: Year One Announced

There is a class of movie fans who will often say "All I want is another Die Hard." The pronouncement means they want a movie like the 1988 original. The film was so revolutionary it began an era when film pitches could be boiled down to "Die Hard on boat," or "Die Hard on a […]

First Total Recall Footage Seems To Be Leaked Wondercon Promo

The first appearance of this Total Recall clip, as far as I can tell, came watermarked with Comicon at the head. I guess it was being set up for screening at Wondercon this weekend. Most of this footage was amongst the extended, if unfinished, sequence I saw at Comicon last Summer, in fact. All of […]
