NEW FEATURETTE AND POSTER FOR THE PREDATOR

THE PREDATOR arrives in cinemas and IMAX 3D on September 12 On the set of THE PREDATOR, the cast took some time to address a question that many have pondered - who would win in Predator Vs... say, The Rock? Or The Punisher? See how the debate went down in this fun featurette, revealed today by Twentieth Century Fox.

THE PREDATOR is brought to you by director Shane Black and stars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Jacob Tremblay, Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Alfie Allen, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey and Yvonne Strahovski.

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science te…

"Are You Jokin' At Me?" A Theory About New Joaquin Phoenix Movie

By Patrick Gibbs

Screenrant  speculated yesterday that the mysterious Joaquin Phoenix Joker standalone film may be a "What if?" movie about Trump in the world of Batman. The theory was largely sparked by the announcement of the casting Alec Baldwin as Thomas Wayne, and the description on him as a tanned, as "cheesy, tanned businessman who is more in the mold on Donald Trump," as described by Hollywood Reporter.

Now Baldwin is out, which may be for the best if that's the idea people are getting. Batman with Donald Trump in it isn't much of a premise, Baldwin needs to avoid becoming forever associated with him, and I don't think it's the driving force behind the vision for this project. I Consider another line in the HR article:  "Taxi Driver and King of Comedy" are the watchwords.  We already know that Robert De Niro is playing a talk show host, and that the dynamic is reminiscent of Scorsese's De Niro/Jerry Lewis classic.  Now add in the…

DEAD RABBIT AT LARGE THIS OCTOBER

New Series, Dead Rabbit Coming Soon From Image Comics Image Comics is pleased to reveal a teaser trailer and preview pages for the forthcoming new series from Gerry Duggan (ANALOG, Deadpool) and John McCrea (MYTHIC, Hitman)—DEAD RABBIT—launching from Image Comics this October.

Back in the '90s, Dead Rabbit was a prolific Boston stick-up man and hoodlum, until he took down one last big score and disappeared. Nobody ever discovered the truth: he retired to be with the love of his life. Now he’s back in the mask to save her, but no one—not his wife, the mafia, or the cops—is happy that he’s out of retirement.

Fans of KILL OR BE KILLED and The Departed will love this new action-comedy-drama tale and its main character Martin Dobbs, aka: Dead Rabbit—the man who says he’s descended from one of the original gangs of New York City.

DEAD RABBIT #1 will hit stores on Wednesday, October 5th. The final order cutoff deadline from retailers is Monday, September 10th.
