Cruise to Launch Universal Monster-verse with The Mummy

Cruise to Launch Universal Monster-verse with The Mummy
Universal Pictures will finally get their wish with a shared universe for their iconic monsters and it all kicks off this summer.   It's been a long time coming and quite a few false dawns, but Universal Pictures will finally get their wish. This summer will see the launch of their very own "monster-verse" with the release of The Mummy. Briging all the Universal monsters together in a shared universe has often been seen as a mission impossible, so surely if anyone was going to lead a successful charge for Universal it would be Tom Cruise.  Cruise will play Nick Morton and will be a pivotal character in the universe moving forward. The story is set in the present day, a departure from the traditional period setting for most Mummy iterations.                     The Mummy will also introduce audiences to Dr.Jekyll played by...

Jason Powell Talks Chris Claremont's X-Men

Jason Powell Talks Chris Claremont's X-Men
Geek Genie caught up with author Jason Powell on the release of his book "The Best There is at What He does - Examining Chris Claremont's X-Men" released by Sequart.   GG: Hi Jason. Congratulations on the release of your book! What made you want to write a book specifically about the Claremont run in X-Men? JP: Well I guess that my love of the X-Men is really tied to that particular run by Chris Claremont. I was lucky enough to be given a collection of comic books from my Uncle which had a good mix of Marvel comics (although he refused to give up his Spidey books!). I discovered the X-Men at the same time that the X-Men cartoon series was also taking off and so I really wanted to find out more about these chracters.  GG: Claremont's run is legendary for its soap opera and length of run. Was...

Harris & Hutchison Deliver A Bohemian Rhapsody With Launch Of "Rockstars"
It's Led Zeppelin meets The X-Files as writer Joe Harris and artist Megan Hutchison talk about their forthcoming Image Comics series "Rockstars". Strap in for a Rock 'n' Roll mystery tour like no other!   GG: Congratulations on what looks like an awesome new series! Joe, tell us a bit about "Rockstars". What is the series about? JH: It's a rock 'n' roll supernatural thriller; a love letter to the music I adore, and an exploration into what's hidden behind the music.  It follows two young investigators named Jackie and Dorothy (along with Skydog, Jackie's cat) as they try to get to the bottom of unsolved, even previously unknown, mysteries related to rock history both known and secreted away. GG: How did you come up with the idea of Rockstars? Is this Led Zep meets X-Files? JH: That's sounds about right! I've been saying "Almost Famous meets Supernatural," but I think I...

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director

The Flash Movie Looks For Another New Director
Warner Bros look for their third Director for the Scarlet Speedster. Rick Famuyiwa has left Warner Bros. looking for their third Director for the upcoming Flash movie. Citing creative differences, Famuyiwa released this statement:    "When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash, I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor. I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humour and heart. While it's disappointing that we couldn't come together creatively on this project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for oppportunities to tell stories that speak to fresh generational, topical and multi-cultural point of view. I wish Warner Bros. DC, Jon Berg,...

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back

Raimi's Spider-Man - A Look Back
With the eagerly anticipated introduction of Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in next year's Homecoming, Geek Genie takes a wistful look back at Sam Raimi's original trilogy of movies in the naughties...starting with Spider-Man. When a young teenager by the name of Tom Holland appeared in Captain America: Civil War earlier this year, it was the first time a teenager was depicting a teenage Spider-Man. Toby Maguire, Andrew Garfield and long before him Nicolas Hammond, were all mid to late twenties when they were web spinning so most of fandom were happy that Spider-Man was truly returning to his roots with a physical depiction of Spider-Man more true to the original form created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. So how does the Maguire Spider-Man now fit into the cinematic mythos? In terms of continuity, it doesn't exist as Marvel only recently reached an agreement with Sony to take creative control of...

Konami scores with PES 2017

Konami scores with PES 2017
PES 2017 set to build on critically acclaimed 2016 version. The latest installment of the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise hit the shelves worldwide to yet more critical acclaim, with many industry reviews describing the football game as the best ever.  Konami's move to the Fox engine has proved a sound move for the Japanese based game maker with long term (and some would say long suffering) fans decsribing the latest iteration as a return to the glory days for PES. But will it beat arch rivals FIFA as the best football game of 2017? Well it depends on the criterion used to judge both games. Based on sales alone FIFA will surely wipe the floor with PES and EA Sports has done well to continue to add "whistles and bells" to it's format with a new Career Mode charting the rise of a young hopeful, Alex Hunter recieving rave reviews. Along...

Hmmm, Barry Allen happy? Well, CW at least gave Barry some happiness before pulling the rug from under him later on as the consequences of his time travelling antics soon catch up with him.
