Just Look At All of These Mass Effect Cosplayers!

mass effect cosplayers

If the magnificence of cosplay at Dragon Con hasn’t sunk in just yet, maybe this picture will help you understand. An area at the back of one of the hotels serves as an ideal spot for any large cosplay groups to convene. Different groups schedule meet-ups and crowd in for an impressive photo like this one. Where else would you see a huge number of Mass Effect cosplayers in one place like this? Pam Marotte took the photo, and I bet she had to stand way back to capture the 50 or so cosplayers on the steps.

Be sure to click to enlarge the above photo to see the details and to see who’s got their eyes closed.

This Guy Looks Exactly Like Montgomery Scott [Cosplay]

scotty costume

It’s a wonderful thing when a cosplayer bears a resemblance to the character he or she is dressing as, but it’s not common for the likeness to be this freaking close. This cosplayer spotted at Dragon Con looks a lot like James Doohan and makes a perfect Montgomery Scott. He’s definitely played to his strengths, and it appears that he’s taken the time to add all the little touches. I hope he embraced it and spoke with Scotty’s familiar Scottish accent.

Did Jamie Foxx Spoil the Ending to ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′? Hints at Sinister Six

tasm-2-spider-man-jamie-foxx

Well, he kinda does, depending on how you choose to interpret what he said about the future of The Amazing Spider-Man franchise during a recent interview promoting White House Down. (Obviously, possible SPOILERS after this point!)

They actually talked about doing the Sinister Six, so, fingers crossed. Because electricity never dies, it just goes to a different place.

It’s probably pretty obvious that Spider-Man isn’t going to lose to Electro, and even though Foxx never outright says that’s the case, I think we can all agree Spidey is going to come out on top and somehow stop his supercharged foe. What’s even more interesting about this, though, is the mention of the Sinister Six. If the group of super villains were to form we would, most likely, see the return of Jamie Foxx as Electro, whether he’s defeated at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 or not. If this does happen, it would be the first time the Sinister Six showed up on the big screen as a group, so that could be a major selling point for the third Amazing Spider-Man film.

Jackman Teases ‘Days’ as Last Outing as Wolverine

wolverine1

Days of Future Past is going to be an all-star X-Men-palooza, but one of Marvel’s Merry Mutants is now suggesting that his appearance in the upcoming X-film may be his swan song to the part that made him a movie star.

Yes ma’am (or sir), we’re talking about Hugh Jackman, and although he’s been very complimentary about the experience, the actor seems to be indicating that Days will be the last time he’ll play Wolverine.

It may be the last,” he said. “By the way, it didn’t hit me until three weeks before the end [of shooting X-Men: Days of Future Past], because we promoted The Wolverine and I came back on set with three weeks to go, and that’s when I went, ‘Well, who knows? Maybe there’s no more Wolverine. Maybe this is it. Who knows? Maybe.‘”

Although it’s been a 13-plus year odyssey, Jackman isn’t feeling much in the way of regret or remorse if this does indeed turn out to be the final time he slips into a pair of Adamantium claws. “I really made the most of those last few weeks. I enjoyed every time I put the claws on. I nicked everything off the set, so Halloween, come to me and I’ll hook you up.”

In the meantime though, Jackman continues to heap praise on Days of Future Past. “I keep saying it’s like two movies in one, but with the size of it it’s really three in one,” he added. “It really is going to blow people away because of the story.

Well, you can’t fault his enthusiasm. Wolverine was a difficult role to pull off, and Jackman did so with aplomb, and it will be a sad day when he leaves the role for good, and it will be very difficult for someone new to take up the part standing in Jackman’s shadow.

More news as it develops. Days of Future Past is in theaters next summer.

[UPDATED!] Expect Those ‘Star Wars’ Spinoffs to be Origin Stories – But Whose Origin?

sw

[UPDATED! The Hollywood Reporter is now confirming Disney's and Lucasfilm's plans to release one of these spinoff, origin films every other year, alternating with the release of Episodes VII, VIII, and IX. Our original story continues below.]

The acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney has brought about the final installment of the Star Wars saga, but wait, there’s more! It also means Disney, being the media powerhouse they are, isn’t only interested in Episode VII, VIII, and IX, but rather an entire new franchise of Star Wars films. We’ve been hearing rumors of Star Wars spinoffs ever since Disney consumed Lucasfilm like a smaller, feeble twin in the womb, but now they’re actually talking about them!

Disney CFO Jay Rasulo has described these spinoff to Variety as “origin story film[s],” and hinted these flicks would reveal how many of the saga’s most famous characters became so famous (or infamous).

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger earlier told CNBC,

Larry Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are both working on films derived from great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga.

Obviously, we still don’t have any concrete details about what these spinoff, origin stories will be about. Rumors have continued to suggest they’d focus on characters such as Yoda, Han Solo, and Boba Fett. All good candidates, in my opinion, for a little more characterization and development. And with the plan still being to release a Star Wars movie every year, beginning with Episode VII in 2015, we’ll likely be hearing more solid news about the spinoffs sooner than later. Stay tuned!

DM Battles to Keep His Nerd Cred in ‘Zero Charisma’ Trailer

zero charisma

For those out of the loop, Zero Charisma is a new geek-centric film that focuses on the trials and tribulations of a Dungeon Master that begins to feel what little geek power he has slipping away when a new player arrives to challenge his hold over his players’ hearts and minds. Okay, that may be overstating it a little, but it does look to be a much better geek flick than most. Check out the trailer below and see what you think,

And, if you need more info, read the official movie description:

As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother’s kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip-along with everything else in his life-when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm.

If that’s enough to convince you, then download the movie when it hits the digital market come October 8th. Or just wait around a few more days and see it at an actual theater on October 11th.

Thanks to /Film for the heads-up.

‘The Dark Knight Legacy’ – A Chance to See Nolan’s Story Continue

dark knight legacy

With the ending of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, many questions were left unanswered. And since they’re rebooting the Caped Crusader in 2015, those questions are not likely to be addressed anytime soon. So, to satisfy their own need for a continuation, some fans got together, led by director Brett Register, and put together this seven minute fan film that picks up a year after The Dark Knight Rises left off. Check out Nightwing, The Red Hood and a few other faces that you might recognize in The Dark Knight Legacy video below:

Shit, it’s not half-bad. Other than the decision to blow The Penguin away in short order, I’d have to say I’m quite impressed even. Want to see more? It’s a completely fan-funded project, so you can head over to indiegogo.com and help the guys who made this to continue the story by providing them some cash to keep their cast and crew fed.

Thanks to /Film for the heads-up.
