LOOKING FOR BOOKS TO BUY THIS WEEK?  

LOOK NO FURTHER.  

HERE ARE SOME ISSUES THAT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT.

 
Dean’s Recommendations …
JupitersLegacy2Jupiter’s Legacy Volume 2 #2
“Is it weird that this book is called volume 2 #2? Yes. But try not to let that discourage you from buying this fantastic comic. It took a long time for Jupiter’s Legacy to return, but it is back and issue #1 was everything you want it to be. It was the best comic of the week and I’m fully expecting this one to follow that trend.”

Review of Star Trek Beyond

Star Trek Beyond posterNo Spoilers

Fifty years ago NBC premiered a new science-fiction series entitled Star Trek. Despite being canceled after three seasons due to low ratings, the show would firmly lodge itself into geek fandom. From there its popularity would grow until it settled comfortably into the prominence among popular culture. Along the way it would add several spin-off shows (the latest debuts in 2017), an animated cartoon series, books and thirteen films, the most recent of which arrived in theaters this past weekend. Star Trek Beyond is the third movie since the franchise was rebooted in 2009 with J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek. In some ways, Beyond is a fresh start with director Justin Lin and screenwriters Simon Pegg & Doug Jung stepping into those roles for the first time. (Pegg, for his part, has been involved with the reboot from the beginning, playing the role of Scotty). While the new creative team do add some of their own flavorings, they also hew strongly to the template that Abrams employed for Star Trek and its sequel Into Darkness. At the same time, though, they avoid many of the mistakes of the latter film. Beyond may not be classic Trek, but, on its own terms, it is an enjoyable ride, whose strongest attribute is some great character work.

SDCC: Max Landis Writing a Pepe Le Pew Movie?

Pepe Le Pew

OK, so someone at Warner Brothers decided that we needed a Pepe Le Pew movie.

They also decided that Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra & Superman: American Alien) was the person to write it.

Pepe was a member of Warner Brothers’ stable of Looney Tunes characters. He spent most of his time ogling black cats and refusing to hear “no” as “no.”

Could this be the same project that reportedly signed Mike Myers to voice the lead back in 2010?

The mind truly boggles.

For more, see Deadline.

Cheers.

 

SDCC: New Preview for Lego Batman Movie

 

Because Warner Brothers executives get paid by the number of trailers they cut (I swear, I’m not even posting all of them), the studio also unveiled a new one for the forthcoming Lego Batman Movie. Spun-off from the box-office hit The Lego Movie, the preview centers on Will Arnett’s Batman adjusting to that new ward (Michael Cera) he inadvertently adopted. Also featuring Ralph Fiennes’ voice of reason as Alfred. Not featured, since some good things must wait, is Rosario Dawson’s Batgirl . . .

The Lego Batman Movie, directed by Chris McKay, opens February 10th, 2017.

Cheers

 

SDCC: First Look at Justice League

Warner Brothers also unveiled today the first glimpse of next year’s Justice League movie. Orientated around Bruce Wayne recruiting members for his new “team” it features most prominently Ezra Miller’s Flash and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman. And yes, it does have a less somber feel about it . . .

Justice League, directed Zack Snyder, opens November 17th, 2017.
