New Jurassic World Images Hit the Web #JurassicPark

Image
To mark the beginning of the 365-day countdown of Universal's Next Jurassic Park sequel, The A.V. Club has published a few images from the film, featuring Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) on a motorcycle, Bryce Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3) , and the young pair of Nick Robinson (Kings of Summer) and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3) . I have always loved the JP movies, even if the third one was a little of a letdown I can't wait for Jurassic Park 4 to hit theaters. You can see the images below.

Frank Miller's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For - Trailer 2 - #SinCity2

Image
The second trailer for Sin City 2 "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" was released today. It shows a lot of new images and introduces some of the characters. I'm a little confused as I've never read any of the series but enjoyed the first Movie as the time it's taking place in. From prior reports this is supposed to be sort of a prequel, but from the looks of the trailer it seems the timeline might be a little looser than that as events don't seem to fit just as a prequel to the first movie. You can watch the first trailer here , and the second below.

Vincent D'Onofrio Cast as Wilson Fisk in Netflix Daredevil Series

Image
Marvel Studios announced today that it has cast Vincent D'Onofrio, of Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Full Metal Jacket and Men in Black fame as Wilson Fisk, aka the Kingpin, in the 2015 13-episode Netflix Daredevil series. D'Onofrio joins Charlie Cox, previously announced in the series’ lead role as Matt Murdock/Daredevil. I personally like D'Onofrio and have higher hopes for the Netflix series in the fact they are getting some A list actors in them. Just because it's not on a major network or the big screen, doesn't mean Marvel is't going to show it the same love. You can read the full press release below.

Featured Review: @TopCow Rise of the Magi #1 @Marc_Silvestri @TheThirdG @SumeyyeKesgin1

Rise of the Magi #1 “Gape at these people and their precious things, now look me in the eye and tell me this is a world not worth destroying.” -       The Master Of Truth And Lies commenting on the human race. A small black sphere contains all the magic that exists past, present, and future. Without it, two worlds would not survive. The sphere has been protected for centuries by a spell that was believed unbreakable. A common man in the world of magic discovers the spell has been breeched and a small chip of the black sphere has been stolen. It is thought a piece of sphere so small as to be unseen by the naked eye would be enough crush all mankind. Someone has taken enough to fill the palm of one’s hand and fled from the world of magic into the world of man and only the very common Asa Stonethrow can find him. Asa thought saving two worlds was his great burden, until he meets a girl. The world we know is at risk because the world we don’t see, the one that makes ours pos

Again I want to apologize to everyone for my lack of updates and missing the past few weeks picks. As I mentioned I just moved into my new "Money Pit" and have been spending most of my days off fixing it up. On top of that I just got a promotion at work, so I have no time to blog there anymore. So what I've decided to do is what I planned on anyways and that's try to post nightly when I get off. By doing this it also allows me to post my deviantART Picks daily instead of a single post on the weekend. I was planning on doing this anyways as each week I have more and more art to showcase. With that said, here are the  deviantART  Picks for 06/09/2014. Each day I highlight artists work that I follow on deviantART. The picks can include; fan art, covers, pinups, colorists, inkers, digital rendering, and occasionally 3D modeling. Today I have a total of 8 deviantART picks.
