Kick-Ass poster 11



“Kick-Ass” tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name — Kick-Ass — assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There’s only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers.

His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, is hunted by assorted violent and unpleasant characters, and meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes, including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloe Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage).

The new film is directed by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Stardust) and is scheduled to hit theaters on April 16th, 2010.

Mark Strong



No, that’s completely wrong. Somebody told me about it this morning; I had never heard it before in my life,” said Campbell. “In fact, we’re in negotiations with Mark Strong (RocknRolla, Sherlock Holmes) to play Sinestro. He’s not only a wonderful actor, but he looks like Sinestro.

Campbell went on to confirm Peter Sarsgaard as villain Hector Hammond and mentioned what other characters we can expect to make an appearance in the movie. “Well, Kilowog will be,” he said. “Tomar-Re is in it. Sinestro is in it. Abin Sur is in it. All the origin people. Carol [Ferris], of course, who will be played by Blake Lively.”

“All the main characters are there, and it’s a complex story. The origin story of Green Lantern is complex, probably one of the most complex, which makes it a challenge to get it right.

Doctor Fate

 

We already knew that the Justice Society of America storyline will be airing in February as a two hour TV-Movie Special called “Absolute Justice” and it would would introduce Hawkman, Doctor Fate and Stargirl – and we knew more characters would be appearing. Well we now know thanks to the trailer that Sandman – the original, yes that gas mask wearing Wesley Dodds. But the real kicker that has us all at the edge of our seats was a glimpse (the kind you miss if you blink) of a man’s hand wearing a very familiar unforgettable green ring.

Green Lantern, Sandman, Doctor Fate

 

Even though Smallville producers have noted over and over that they can’t use several characters currently in the pipeline for movies, and yes that has included none other than Green Lantern. The Green Lantern movie is about to go into production, and will be starring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan. But it seems that the powers that be at DC and Warner Bros. have eased their restrictions just a bit, as it is very obvious that the ring shown belongs to the original Green Lantern who just so happens to be Alan Scott a Justice Society of America member.

 

Given that we’ve only heard about Hawkman, Doctor Fate and Stargirl meeting Clark Kent, it seems more than likely that Sandman and Green Lantern will only be appearing in flashbacks, and at this junction that maybe all we see of Alan Scott and Wesley Dodds. Still just their appearance in any fashion is notable for any DC Comics fans, and continues to rise Smallville’s status on the growing television version of the DC Universe.

Plot Summary:

Mortimer “Mo” Folchart (Brendan Fraser) and his 12-year-old daughter, Meggie (Eliza Hope Bennett), share a passion for books. What they also share is an extraordinary gift for bringing characters from books to life when they read aloud. But there is a danger: when a character is brought to life from a book, a real person disappears into its pages.

On one of their trips to a secondhand book shop, Mo hears voices he hasn’t heard for years, and when he locates the book they’re coming from, it sends a shiver up his spine. It’s Inkheart, a book filled with illustrations of medieval castles and strange creatures–a book he’s been searching for since Meggie was three years old, when her mother, Resa (Sienna Guillory), vanished into its mystical world.

But Mo’s plan to use the book to find and rescue Resa is thwarted when Capricorn (Andy Serkis), the evil villain of Inkheart, kidnaps Meggie and, discovering she has inherited her father’s gift, demands that she bring his most powerful ally to life–the Shadow. Determined to rescue his daughter and send the fictional characters back where they belong, Mo assembles a small group of friends and family–some from the real world, some from the pages of books–and embarks on a daring and perilous journey to set things right.
