It Figures, Science Fiction
David 8, Michael Fassbender, NECA, Prometheus, The Deacon
I wasn’t a fan of “Prometheus.” My brother swears it’s because I just “didn’t get it,” but all I know is if the commercials for the Blu-Ray make a point to state that finally all the questions will be answered in behind the scene interviews that means I wasn’t the only one who found it confusing, convoluted boring mess.
I am a fan of NECA’s excellent figure line from the film however and they just revealed pictures of the two figures from the second series – David 8 (a brilliant Michael Fassbender, who was the film’s lone bright spot for me) and The Deacon, whom I guess we could consider the Big Poppa of the Alien clan.

Adam West, Aliens, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Batman, Iron Man, Marvel's The Avengers, Michael Keaton, NECA, Predator, Prometheus, The Hunger Games
NECA was among the dozens of companies showcasing more of their 2013 product at the 2013 Toy Fair held in New York and they’ve got some very fun offerings in store for pop-culture fans.
That scene straight from “Aliens” is BEGGING for Vasquez, Ripley, Gorman and Newt figures to complete it. More

Cinema Convo, Trailers
benedict cumberbatch, Eric Bana, Fast and Furious 6, Iron Man 3, J.J. Abrams, Man of Steel, Prometheus, star trek franchise, Star Trek Into Darkness, The Great Gatsby, The Hangover: Part III, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Wolverine
If J.J. Abrams sticks with the “Star Trek” franchise, I may end up a Trekkie after all. That was my initial thought after watching the trailer for “Star Trek Into Darkness.”
Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”) is rumored to be playing Khan and his path of destruction is very Khan-esque. Whoever he’s playing, he’s already showing a coolness factor that Eric Bana’s Nero lacked.
Thanks to “Prometheus,” I know I can’t get but so excited about a film based on its trailer, but this is definitely on my Top 5 Most Anticipated 2013 Must-See List. More

Alex Cross, Along Came a Spider, Edward Burns, Idris Elba, Kiss the Girls, Lost, Matthew Fox, Morgan Freeman, Prometheus, Rachel Nichols, Rob Cohen, The Fast and the Furious, Tyler Perry, xXx
Sidney Baldwin/Summit Entertainment
Tyler Perry stars in “Alex Cross.”
The biggest problem with trying to reinvent yourself as a hard-nosed tough guy is when most of the movie-going public most closely associates you as a woman.
That’s the issue Tyler Perry faces in “Alex Cross,” a mediocre action/drama that serves as a prequel of sorts to the big screen adaptations of James Patterson novels, “Along Came a Spider” and “Kiss the Girls,” starring Morgan Freeman as an older, more experienced Cross. More

New on DVD/Blu-Ray
John Cusack, Malin Akerman, musical, Prometheus, Ridley Scott, Rock of Ages, The Raven, Tom Cruise
Prometheus – Of all the summer movies, “Prometheus” easily had the best trailer. You couldn’t figure out what the heck was happening, but darn it if that haunting music with that alarm-like clanging and quick-cut images raised my interest in the movie to kinda intrigued to CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE PROMETHEUS!!!!.
A prequel of sorts to “Alien” where explorers are seeking mankind’s origin seemed like a can’t miss prospect and lock for one of the summer’s best. More

It Figures, Science Fiction
NECA, Prometheus, The Engineer
NECA sent along some new pictures of their debut “Prometheus” figure – the Engineer in both his chair and pressure suit looks. I wasn’t nearly as impressed with the movie as I am the figures, which are very detailed and capture the look of the film’s antagonist perfectly. More
