DC FanDome: The Batman NewMain Trailer!

The new, second trailer for The Batman has been released during DC’s 2021 FanDome event. The trailer offers a great taste of what this dark, noir style take on the legacy of the Batman will be like.

Thought the trailer was amazing and I’m excited to see this movie more than ever now. “The Batman,” with director Matt Reeves (the “Planet of the Apes” films) at the helm and with Robert Pattinson (“Tenet,” “The Lighthouse,” “Good Time”) starring as Gotham City’s vigilante detective, Batman, and billionaire Bruce Wayne looks set to be a box-office smash.

Also in the star-studded ensemble as Gotham’s famous and infamous cast of characters are Zoë Kravitz (“Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” “Mad Max: Fury Road”) as Selina Kyle; Paul Dano (“Love & Mercy,” “12 Years a Slave”) as Edward Nashton; Jeffrey Wright (the “Hunger Games” films) as the GCPD’s James Gordon; John Turturro (the “Transformers” films) as Carmine Falcone; Peter Sarsgaard (“The Magnificent Seven,” “Black Mass”) as Gotham D.A. Gil Colson; Barry Keoghan (“Dunkirk”) as Officer Stanley Merkel; Jayme Lawson (“Farewell Amor”) as mayoral candidate Bella Reál; with Andy Serkis (the “Planet of the Apes” films, “Black Panther”) as Alfred; and Colin Farrell (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” “Dumbo”) as Oswald Cobblepot.

“The Batman” is set to open in theaters 4th March 2022.

No Time To Die Film Review

Review by Paul Bowler.

No Time to Die, Daniel Craig’s final outing as the worlds most famous super-spy is finally with us at last, and it looks set to be 007’s most blockbusting adventure yet! As well as being the milestone 25th film in the Bond franchise, which began with Dr No in 1962, No Time To Die is also purportedly one of the most expensive Bond movie every made.

Picking after the events of Spectre (2015), where Blofield (Christopher Waltz) was captured and Bond had wandered off into the sunset with love-interest Dr Madeleine Swann, played by French star Lea Seydoux, No Time to Die finds that Bond and Madeleine have started a new life together in Italy. Although Bond’s left his spy days with MI6 behind him, Madeleine is still harbouring secrets of her own, and Bond’s own troubled past eventually makes them go their separate ways. 

Five years on and Bond is in Jamaica, retired and drowning his sorrows, that is until his old CIA contact Felix Leiter (Jeffery Wright) seeks his help. Christopher Waltz’s sinister Blofield may be behind bars, but he’s not without influence, and his nefarious henchmen on the outside are still eager to do his bidding – namely Primo (Dali Benssalah).

There’s also a new nemesis in the form of Safin, brilliantly played by Rami Malek, a deadly psychopath with his own agenda who also shares a past with Bond’s lover Madeleine. Bond reunites with M, played by Ralph Fiennes, along with old colleagues Ben Wishaw’s trusty quartermaster Q, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, and some new faces including the fearless and funny Cuban CIA agent Paloma, played by Ana de Armas, and Lashana Lynch as new double-oh-agent Nomi who stepped up to the plate when Bond was out of the frame. With new working practices at MI6 to contend with, Bond must learn to adapt as he struggles with his role in the ever changing asymmetric world of modern warfare and high-tech espionage, whilst dealing with the return of Madeleine, and finding a way to stop his enemies from unleashing a deadly bioweapon on the world. 

The multi-layered storyline brings this era of Bond full circle in a plethora of action, gadgets, intrigue and glamour. Daniel Craig gives one of his most powerful performances yet as 007 runs a gauntlet of brutal action, frenetic chases and emotional turmoil that will no doubt galvanise his legacy as one of the best Bond’s of all. He’s ably supported by a superb cast, who each get their moment in the spotlight, and Director Cary Joji Fukunaga stylishly orchestrates the international scope of the globe-trotting narrative, rich characterisation and the big action set-pieces with consummate ease. Add to that the rousing score by Hans Zimmer and a terrific theme tune written by Grammy winner Billie Eillsh and you have a movie that is sure to be everything that fans could’ve hoped for in Daniel Craig’s swansong as Bond.

No Tine to Die features some stunning locales, including those filmed in the hillside city of Matera in Italy, the Caribbean where Bond tries to escape his life at MI6, and an exciting chase in Norway. Filming also took place on the Faroe Islands, along with scenes short in the UK at the 19th century  Ardverikie Estate and Cairngorms in Scotland, and London. There’s the usual quota of stunts, fights and shoot-outs to leave you shaken and stirred, including a fantastic sequence with the iconic Austin Martin where Bond and Madeleine are attacked and pursued by their enemies, there’s a dramatic chase across a frozen lake as well, and even a record breaking explosion for one particular stunt.

The pandemic might have seen the film pushed back three times from its original 2020 release date, but its been well worth the wait. At just over two hours and 43 minutes long, its a film with a lot of ground to cover as it races into its thrilling final act, but the story never drags, and the exciting break-neck action ensures No Time to Die brings Daniel Craig’s era as Bond to a close in fine style.

Godzilla: World of Monsters Review

Godzilla: World of Monsters

Review by Paul Bowler

IDW’s Godzilla: World of Monsters features some of the King of the Monsters greatest sagas in one massive 335 page volume that collects the three Godzilla graphic novels: Gangsters & Goliaths by John Layman and Alberto Ponticelli, Cataclysm by Cullen Bunn and Dave Wachter and Oblivion by Joshua Fialkov and Brian Churilla. 

This trade collection begins with Godzilla: Gangsters and Goliaths by superstar creators John Layman (Chew) and Alberto Ponticelli (Unknown Soldier). This outstanding tale is  perhaps as bizarre as it is ingeniously inventive, when Godzilla ends up classing head on with the Tokyo criminal Yakuza underworld after Detective Makoto Sato embarks on the quest to take down a notorious crime syndicate. Sato’s mission unfortunately earns him a tropical getaway to Monster Island. Here he must fight for survival against gangsters and goliaths – whilst ensiling the help of some very unusual friends along the way. Gangsters & Goliaths is a quirky and exciting spin on the usual Godzilla tropes, with a great story by John Layman, and stylish art from Alberto Ponticelli.

Next up we have Godzilla: Cataclysm by Cullen Bunn (The Sixth Gun) and Dave Wachter (The Guns of Shadow Valley). Bunn’s ominous Godzilla story takes place many years after a terrifying monster apocalypse that virtually wiped out all of mankind. Now that disaster is only a nightmarish memory for Hiroshi, the elder of one of the few surviving human tribes. But the apocalypse isn’t over yet, far from it, and Hiroshi’s memories of the past may end up being the only hope of saving the future of mankind. This grim tale makes for compelling reading, and the impressive artwork by Dave Wachter depicts the apocalyptic world and monster in action in vivid detail.

Godzilla: Oblivion, written by Joshua Fialkov Doctor Who, I Vampire), with art by Brian Churilla (Big Trouble in Little China), rounds off this Godzilla collection with an adventure set on an Earth where there are no monsters, until a scientist builds a machine that creates a portal to another dimension leading to an Earth-like world where monster rule and Godzilla is the mightiest of them all. When a team embarks on a voyage to explore this alternate reality, they discover what happened to that world, and their frantic return to their own Earth risks brining something very nasty back with them. Oblivion has a unique Sci-Fi unique twist in the story, although the art is a bit variable at times, and lacking in finer detail. Minor quibbles aside, Oblivion remains a fun and action packed Godzilla adventure. 

Godzilla: World of Monsters showcases some of the best collections from IDW Publishing’s extensive Godzilla comics.  This trade paper back features Godzilla at his best, reigning supreme no matter what world or timeline we find him in, and this excellent trilogy of epic tales has something for every  Godzilla fan to enjoy.

Publisher IDW Publishing

Writers John Layman, Cullen Bunn, Joshua Fialkow

Artists  Alberto Ponticelli, Dave Wachter, Brian Churilla.

Matrix 4: Resurrections Trailer Released!

Tags

, , , ,

The first trailer for THE MATRIX 4: RESURRECTIONS has been released. Keanu Reeves and Carry Ann Moss will be reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity, even though both characters died during the last Matrix movie. It would seem, the plot will centre on Neo once more, except he has returned to his regular life as Thomas Anderson and doesn’t remember the events of the previous movies. The cast also includes Priyanka Chopra, Neil Patrick Harris, Jonathan Groff, Christina Ricci, and more in new, undisclosed roles.

I loved the original film, but wasn’t that keen on its sequels.. Fingers crossed Matrix 4: Resurrections will be a return to form. The highly anticipated film will arrive in theaters & on HBO Max on December 22nd. .

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings Film Review

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Review by Paul Bowler

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a spectacular new Asian led chapter in the next phase of Marvel’s highly anticipated wave of post Endgame movies, and also a much needed breath of fresh air for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Staring actor and stuntman Simu Liu as Shang-Chi, who post blip is using the alias of Shaun while working as a hotel valet in San Francisco, together with his best friend Katy (Awkwafina). When they are suddenly attacked by the deadly Razor Fist (Florian Munteanu) and his henchmen, Shang-Chi has no choice but to reveal his true identity and return home to face the demons of his past, including his father, Wenwu (Tony Leung), who just happens to be the centuries old super-villain leader of the Ten Rings organisation!   

Director Destin Daniel Cretton stylishly blends the superhero fantasy and martial arts action. The frenetic fight sequences are beautifully choreographed, with Simu Liu performing many of his own stunts, and as origin stories go Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a great addition to the MCU line-up. The saga of the Ten Rings, the mystical weapons that grant their owner great power and immortality, is intricately woven into the narrative, and Shang-Chi’s fears his that estranged sister Xu Xialing (Meng’er Zhang) will also be targeted sees him race to Macau with Katy to find Xialing.

The plot hardly pauses for a moment from the outset. Highlights included a Jacky Chan like sequence on a skyscraper swathed in bamboo scaffolding, there’s a cage fight between Wong (Benedict Wong) and the Abomination (voice by Tim Roth), a daring Speed-style chase unfolds through the streets of San Francisco, and a bombastic finale of epic proportions round off Shang-Chi’s MCU debut in fine style.

Simu Liu effortlessly makes the role Shang-Chi his own, while Awkwafina’s scene stealing turn as Chi’s comic sidekick ensures there’s plenty of fun moments interspaced between the frenetic action. There’s some father son angst that gives the plot added depth, sacrifices are also made, and everything builds to a fittingly spectacular – if somewhat CGI heavy – climatic  mystical showdown. The supporting cast is excellent as well, although I felt the addition of Sir Ben Kingsley’s character Trevor Slattery (the faux Mandarin from Iron Man 3) was a little bit superfluous.

As Marvel Studios first film with an Asian director and a predominately Asian cast, Shan-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings is a fine exploration and representation of Asian culture, and a visually impressive and exciting MCU film on every level. There are plenty of Easter eggs and MCU references to past movies and future Phase Four projects to enjoy as well. This film may not be as game changing as Black Panther, but it was way more fun than Black Widow! Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Ring is a good all-round action-adventure film in its own right, the dazzling martial arts fight sequences will blow yu away, and the post credit scenes (featuring some fan pleasing cameos) bring the character of Shang-Chi even further into the wider mythology of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

King Spawn #1 Review

King Spawn #1 Review

Review by Paul Bowler.

King Spawn #1 is a historic comic book event for Todd McFarlane’s Spawn – namely that this hotly anticipated issue marks the launch of the first new ongoing Spawn since the character  originally debuted in 1992. Nearly three decades in the making, Image Comics King Spawn #1 continues to expand on events from SPAWN’s UNIVERSE #1 as the forces of Hell, Heaven, and the Heroes all begin to assert their power and influence on Earth.

Sean Lewis and Todd McFarlane have crafted something of a horror noir themed anthology with King Spawn #1, which features a lead story and numerous back-up stories to make this giant sized issue extra special. 

The main storyline is a dark, sombre affair, which opens with a shocking attack, and the grim tone and bloodletting hardly lets up from there. Its a story more akin to a supernatural detective thriller really, with Spawn investigating a gruesome trail of murderous carnage, and utilising the resources of his allies to hunt down a mysterious killer via a list that holds the name of every Shadow Player – the Demons and Angels hiding in human skins on Earth – but it seems there even darker forces waiting in the wings. This gripping opening story is beautifully illustrated by Javi Fernandez with colors by FCO Plascencia. From the ominous rainswept graveyard scene to a vengeful Spawn’s grim quest around the city to uncover answers to the heinous series of murders, Fernandez and FCO dynamically render this atmospheric saga in exquisite detail, with striking visuals, dynamic page layouts, and rich colors throughout. The cliffhanger sets up some intriguing possibilities that will no doubt shape and influence the new Spawn Universe in the months ahead.

Haunt, the first back-up story, is drawn by Stephen Segovia. Its a good little story that serves as a reminder of Haunt’s abilities, along with the dynamic with his ghostly brother, and it sets up a mission Haunt must undertake to save himself after he’s fallen in love. Marcio Takara handles the art for Nightmare, a decidedly bloody and gory interlude with Nightmare Spawn, a great looking character with a truly monstrous personality. Then we have The Hero illustrated by Philip Tan, its a nerve jangling tale of terror with a surprise twist in the tale, and it will be interesting to see where this character goes next. Finally we have Gunslinger, drawn by Brett Booth which of course focuses on Gunslinger Spawn. Its a great tale about the fate that befell the Gunslinger, how revenge consumed him, and where that same fate has inexplicably placed him now. 

Rounding off this amazing first issue of King Spawn is an interview with Sean Lewis by Todd McFarlane that provides even greater insight into this new era for Spawn. The hype and anticipation around King Spawn has been phenomenal and its sure to be a huge hit. I’m pleased to say that this issue more than lived up to the hype, and its also a fairly good jumping on point for new readers as well. This reviews a tad late as I’ve been off for most of August enjoying a summer break with my family. I’ve been really looking forward to getting King Spawn #1, so I thought it’d be a good issue for me to cover and get back into my reviewing groove again. I even treated myself to a couple of the variants as well, and I’m really excited to see what the Spawn Universe will bring — especially Gunslinger Spawn in October!

Moon Knight #1 Review

Moon Knight #1

Review by Paul Bowler.

Moon Knight returns to protect those who travel at night with the launch of Moon Knight #1, Marvel’s brand new ongoing series from writer Jed MacKay (Black Cat) and artist Alessandro Cappuccio (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers). As the first Khonshu Moon Knight has a sworn duty to uphold, this time with a slightly revised mission, and even some creatures of the night will earn protection in the Moon Knight’s dominion.

Marc Spector’s night time crusade continues apace as people seek out help for the horrors lurking in the twilight hours of their neighbourhoods from the mysterious Mr Knight at his Midnight Mission HQ. The Moon Knight prowls the rooftops and alleyways marked with his crescent moon symbol, dealing out violence and retribution to anyone, or anything, foolish enough to harm those under his protection. 

Moon Knight #1 hits the ground running and doesn’t let up for a moment as writer Jed MacKay deftly establishers a fresh take on Marvel’s most uncompromisingly complex hero. The focus on Marc Spector’s dissociative identity disorder and the numerous guises he uses to carry out his righteous mission are refreshingly underplayed, instead MacKay skilfully utilises the fascinating therapy sessions between Moon Knight and his therapist to meld exposition and narrative into a cohesive whole. Along with his therapist, Marc also shares a close bond with Reese who helps run the Midnight Mission, there are villains like 8-Ball and Vermin to contend with as well, and a strange new Doctor running the free clinic. Events also see Moon Knight inadvertently end up saving creatures of the night in this issue as well. This is the key factor that ends up putting Moon Knight at odds with other followers of Khonshu who hold an even darker interpretation of their god – Khonshu. 

The dark, noirish look of Moon Knight #1 is beautiful rendered by artist Alessandro Cappuccio, every scene is rich with atmosphere and dynamic page layouts, and color artist Rachelle Rosenberg uses a subtle mix of moody tones and swarthy shadows to heighten the books visuals even further. Action sequences are bold and in-your-face, with Moon Knight crashing through car windscreens, going toe-to-toe with adversaries in dark streets and corridors, and gliding down over the city to champion those in need. It is the conversations between Moon Knight and his therapist that really steal the show, however. There’s a distinct ‘Hannibal’ like vibe to these sequences, they draw you deeper into the story, and form many of the most compelling moments in the issue.

While all the familiar tropes we’ve come to expect from the character are apparent in Moon Knight #1, Jed MacKay does put a very clever spin on everything, and we can only hope what follows lives up to the potential set up in this first issue. There’s a lot here for longterm Moon Knight fans to enjoy, and the brief flashback to the characters origin ensures newcomers are also catered for as well. Marvel has also churned out a plethora of variant covers for Moon Knight #1 so I’m sure fans and variant cover collectors alike will be over the moon about that. A Hunter’s Moon is rising in this new Moon Knight comic book series and I’m excited to see where MacKay takes the story and the character of Marc Spector next. With all the hype around Moon Knight and the new TV series starring Oscar Isaac coming to Disney Plus in 2021, this new Moon Knight comic series is sure get spark a lot of interest in the character, and this issue certainly gets everything off to a great start.

Superman Action Comics Annual 2021 #1

Review by Paul Bowler.

Legacies of the past and the future entwine as one in DC Comics Superman Action Comics Annual 2021 #1, as writer Philip Kennedy Johnson revisits Future State’s House of El as   Superman’s descendants of tomorrow face a threat established during the yesteryear of the present.

One of the most fascinating aspects of Future State for me was Philip Kennedy Johnson’s one-shot that explored the distant future of the House of El, where the legacy of the Man of Steel had merged with numerous other heroes and legacies of DC universe, and the despot villain  Prythos (Kal El’s fallen son) wished to tear down everything that his family’s heroic dynasty stands for. This special Action Comics Annual ties-in broadly with Johnson’s current “Warworld Rising” arc in Action Comics, the issue opens in the near future where a mysterious old man is telling a group of children a tale of heroes from their own future. Events then flash forward to a time of great prosperity and hope for the House of El, where Superwoman, Lady Kara Zor El, is presiding over a wedding in the House of El, but before the nuptials can be completed Prythos gatecrashes the ceremony. It falls to Brandon Kent, the Superman of this era, to protect his family and save the next generation of the House of El from the menace of Prythos – killer of Darksied and the new Highfather of Apokolips!

Philip Kennedy Johnson delivers a welcome return to the empire of the House of El which he established in Future State, and this Annual sets up a wealth of possibilities for the both the future and the present of the DCU. Tales of the House of El takes the wedding backdrop and turns it into a thrilling all-out action adventure, one laced with heartfelt emotion, a perilous voyage through the Phantom Zone, the surprise return of an old Superman villain, and there’s even a hint of redemption in the air as the story races to get to the church on time for its joyous final act.

The artwork by Siya Oum and Scott Godlewski provides us with dynamic realisation of the richly textured narrative. From the gleaming opulence of the Sanctuary to the chilling vistas of the Phantom Zone, the characters are stylishly defined, and the action sequences impressively rendered throughout. Hi-Fi’s colours are, as always, of a high standard, and every scene is awash with vibrant hues that perfectly accentuates the fine detail of Oum and Godlewski’s work.

I throughly enjoyed this exciting sojourn back to the Future State era of the House of El portrayed in Superman Action Comics Annual 2021. Whether the open-ended nature of much of what transpires in this issue will actually impact or influence Philip Kennedy Johnson’s Action Comics run, of course, remains to be seen. I for one sincerely hope these plot threads and characters are revisited again at some point. Superman Action Comics Annual 2021 #1 is a beautifully crafted story, one where a child’s toy becomes a treasured relic and the future personification of the fundamental  legacy of the House of El itself… hope.
