MARVEL CANCELING FANTASTIC FOUR COMIC TO SPITE UPCOMING MOVIE
Fox’s upcoming Fantastic Four reboot smells like a bigger pile of turds with each new announcement, but what I didn’t expect was for Marvel to pull all support of the film by canceling the comic and offering no upcoming merchandise based on the characters in the near future.
Awesome Pixar-esque renderings of Chell from Portal by Alex Zemke. I’m not even sure if the human species could handle such a thing if it were real. Surely the hearts and minds of fans everywhere would explode in unison, mine included.
Alex has been working on this fanmade short film deal and hyping it up since 2012. Dude might need to start a Kickstarter for this or something.
Check out the duck triplets rocking Supreme, Nike, MORTE, and Givenchi. At first glance I thought these 3D illustrations by Simeon Georgiev were some sort of limited edition figure release, but sadly they’re not. Just 3D illustrations. Like with a computer. Like they’ll never be on my shelf. Sad as it is, they’re still hecka’ awesome.

I’m reluctant to co-sign such a critically mediocre film…
So Heavyweights of those movies that everyone remembers from when they were a child, but never really went back and rewatched to see if it was as great as remembered. Honestly, I had no desire to watch this film again — I saw an episode of the Mega64 podcast (I forget the specific episode) in which Rocco Botte described how great the Blu-ray of Heavyweights was. So me, being a firm believer of the Mega64 crew, purchased it, and holy shit did I soon find out how right Rocco was.

This Movie was Illegally Filmed Inside of Walt Disney World and the Trailer is Effing Magical
Escape from Tomorrow is a bizarre fantasy horror film shot guerrilla style (i.e. without permits) at Walt Disney World. It blew minds at Sundance and will get a limited theater release and be available on Video-On-Demand October 11. Check out the trailer here.
Read: A lot of Top Shelf Comix. Top Shelf Comix sent me this big ol’ box of awesome comics to review. I wanna speed through them by Monday to incorporate the reviews in my Indie Comic Round-Up (which, by the way, thanks for all the great feedback!). I already read A Matter of Life by Jeffrey Brown, which I’ll be reviewing soon. Next up, I’m reading God Is Disappointed In You by Mark Russell, Heck by Zander Cannon, Monster on the Hill by Rob Harrell, and The From Hell Companion by Eddie Campbell and Alan Moore. Big props to Top Shelf Comix for sending these solid titles over!
Watch:The World’s End(again). I saw it last night and it is, by far, the best in the Cornetto trilogy. Really would love to see it again before the weekend is over.
Listen:ILLFIGHTYOU. Some hood ass free hip-hop right here. Been really into them since their tape came out and I’ve been bumping this in the car since.
Visit: Disney. Because I’ve had this year pass and I haven’t used it in the last two months! I need to cop me some new Pokemon plushies, on the real.
Ariel dual-wields a pair of blue lightsabers under the sea, Rapunzel rocks short hair with an exceptionally long Padawan braid, and Snow White makes one hell of a bad-ass Sith in these illustrations by Ralph Sevelius.
Disney posted a teaser image on their Facebook page with the words “Finding Dory,” on it, proving that the Finding Nemo sequel won’t be called Finding Nemo 2(unless this is a spinoff, but I doubt it). Not much is known about Finding Dory as of yet, but we do know that Pixar is attached to the project and that the film is aiming for a 2015 release. As for Dory, it’s not yet confirmed if Ellen DeGeneres is reprising her role as the regal fish, but I think it’s a highly likely case. For now, “like,” the Finding Dory page on Facebook for Disney’s sake.
Well I don’t think anyone really expected this. Today at PAX East, during their “World of Capcom,” panel, Capcom announced that WayForward Technologies are currently developing a DuckTales remaster of the original NES game, simply titled DuckTales Remastered.
The company showed off a trailer and told attendees of the panel more info on the game. The coolest aspect of the project is the fact that’s it not just an HD remake, but it’s being almost completely redone. The company says they’ve got WayForward Technologies hand-drawing every sprite used for the game, as well as Disney providing new and original voice talent, and WayForward creating updated music with their company’s composer,Jake Kaufman.
The game will be released for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Wii U eshop for $15 all around. “We’re literally pouring our heart and soul into this title,” said Capcom’s Rey Jimenez. “It’s going to play just like you remember.”
