Elijah Wood's COOTIES!

From the twisted minds of Leigh Whannell (co-creator of Saw and Insidious) and Ian Brennan (co-creator of "Glee"), COOTIES is a horror comedy with unexpected laughs and unapologetic thrills. When a cafeteria food virus turns elementary school children into killer zombies, a group of misfit teachers must band together to escape the playground carnage. The film stars Elijah Wood (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Rainn Wilson ("The Office"), and Alison Pill ("The Newsroom") as teachers who fight to survive the mayhem while hilariously bickering in an uncomfortable love triangle on the worst Monday of their lives. COOTIES will be one of the debut releases of the newly-launched Lionsgate Premiere label, which will release the film on September 18th in select theaters and on demand.

Those Amazing Avengers: Age of Ultron Bootleg Action Figures

I'd like to tell you the story of a guy named Robert Cop. Robert Cop was once a fully human police officer until he met a violent end. Now Robert is reborn as a cybernetic defender of the peace, sworn to bring evil doers to justice...all while avoiding the copyright put forth by the licensor that owns Robocop...because THAT'S HOW THEY ROLL IN CHINA!! These days, action figure collectors are hard pressed to tell the difference between the real thing and a Chinese knockoff...but even though the quality is up there on some items, you can still count on horrifically, hysterically incredible bootlegs to pop up in stores. Crossing DC and Marvel characters means nothing to these brave pirates and they sling toys with wonky, wandering eyes to dollar stores across America and abroad. As Avengers: Age of Ultron approaches, we'll take a look at the top bootlegs of these characters surfacing right now...

October Toys Skeleton Warriors Baron Dark Action Figure

He LIVES!!  Well...sort of. From dream to Kickstarter to insanely awesome physical toy in my fanboy hands, the Skeleton Warriors are back, starting with their fearsome leader, Baron Dark! You may (or may not..which is probably more the case) remember the Skeleton Warriors cartoon or the action figure line that turns up at flea markets across the planet ..seemingly every damn day. These fantastically sculpted toys from Playmates were waaaay ahead of their time...and maybe a little too far ahead as parents deemed them too terrifying for their precious children ...and they disappeared into the pile of oddball properties churned out by the 80's and 90's. Now October Toys has teamed up with the original creators of the series with hopes of recreating the freaky fiends with every awesome detail in tact, utilizing a Glyos body system, allowing for superior articulation and easy to pop off parts that you can mix with any other Glyos compatible figure.

As we inch closer to Jurassic World's June 12th release date, eagle eyed toy junkies are ever vigilant for the first appearances of the toy line on shelves...which really should be invading any day now! First strike goes to Hasbro's Playskool Heroes line, which is fitting since this is one of the first toys we found awesome pics of round Toy Fair time.

Attack on Titan Live Action Movie Trailers

Here's a little story about a sleepy little society existing within 3 walled cities. The walls are massive and imposing, meant to keep out the fearsome Titans, a mad race of giant creatures ever hungry for human flesh. These monsters roam the countryside, occasionally beating against the great wall but never imposing much of a threat the brave rangers can't take care of. All seemed peaceful...until a new Titan appeared and took down the wall.

The insanely popular Manga series and equally popular anime are now getting a live action film, coming this August! Here are two trailers to give you a sense of the psychotic action and ridiculous carnage we are inevitably in for...

FINALLY!! DC Super Hero Girls Have Come

Yesterday, on the way back from a press junket, I stopped at the Times Square Disney Store in New York. On the second floor, I was eyeballing a princess and prince doll set and becoming increasingly impressed with the quality when I met Amanda, who knows her Disney Store exclusives! I threw out an observation that the super hero/Star Wars section in the back, while containing more things for little kids than I'd ever seen before, was completely absent of clothes or toys for little girls. Amanda agreed that, regrettably, they didn't even carry Princess Leia items for them...and if you can't find it at the Flagship NY store, you probably won't find it in any Disney store. Today, I'm happy to show Amanda and thousands of other girls that DC Comics want all their characters to be accessible to multiple generations. Dig the news!!

Call of Duty: Black Ops III "Ember" Tease

Today, we can wear a device on our wrist that does the jobs of several devices that used to take up much of the space in a small backpack. We are prototyping artificial limbs and organs with hardware that seems to advance daily. Doctors are making synthetic skin seemingly from nothing. We are, quite literally, only years away from cybernetic enhancements for our advantage and personal preference...not necessity. Today, Activision gives us a look into that frightening future where "cultural lag" is merely an afterthought. This is the future of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3...

Production Begins on Ash vs Evil Dead

The STARZ Original series “Ash vs Evil Dead” began production this month in New Zealand on the 10-episode first season of the half-hour series executive produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Bruce Campbell, the original filmmakers of the franchise, and Craig DiGregorio who will serve as executive producer and showrunner.  “Ash vs Evil Dead” is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film franchise The Evil Dead and is set to premiere on STARZ in fall 2015.

Campbell will be reprising his role as Ash, the stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last 30 years avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead.  When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons –personal and literal.  Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its “Evil” grip.

Jurassic World Gears Up For Dino vs Human WAR with Trailers, LEGO & Video Games

June 12th can't get here quick enough. It's an odd matter how cheesy a Jurassic Park movie looks, I still want to see so badly! Few people can deny their love of dinosaurs, as evidenced this past weekend as I set up shop at a local flea market to unload some toys and witnessed a woman emotionally bond with a JP Raptor I had just scored at a Good Will store. She picked it up..gave it a pat, worked his little chomping action and then proceeded to hug it out as she asked how much it was. To her credit, she still tried to talk me down in price!! THIS is the love people are feeling for Jurassic World and why, most likely, we are looking at a colossal box office opening weekend. Until that awesome day arrives...we've got a new trailer!

On 9 April, a special ceremony was held to appoint Godzilla as a tourism ambassador for Tokyo’s Shinjuku district. At the ceremony a huge Godzilla head was unveiled atop Hotel Gracery Shinjuku, which is scheduled to open on 24 April 2015.

The Shinjuku Toho Building is now a new landmark in Shinjuku’s Kabukicho area. The new building houses not only Hotel Gracery Shinjuku, but also Tokyo's largest cinema complex. The life-size Godzilla head is installed on the buildings 8th floor terrace and roars, and blows smoke at certain times of the day.

The Batman V Superman Trailer Premiere

TODAY'S THE DAY!!! (written yesterday night..published today because allergies) Tens of twenties of fans flocked to theaters across America to see the new trailer for Warner Bros. Batman Vs. Superman in eye-exploding IMAX clarity. Of course I kid, because honestly, all you have to say is BATMAN and you will generate a line of people who will only ask what they are lining up for after the first hour. My crowd at the New Brunswick, NJ Loews movie theater seemed as if they would be content just collecting an awesome teaser poster and a T shirt before being sent on their way. I arrived an hour and a half before the screening and there were already 20 people positioned like little DC Comics soldiers with heads pointed at their phone screens, ready for the wait that lie ahead.

Batman Vs Superman Trailer Leaks Early ..And Reactions Are Meh

A good friend pops up on my Facebook messenger and delivers the cryptic message we get 15 times a day... "Have you seen this??" A link is all that accompanies the message. After a quick debate if I'm going to get a virus from clicking or Rickroll'd, I throw caution to the wind and click. Up pops the ominous symbol of BATMAN VS SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE. It is weighty, antiquey and most importantly, it is ANGRY. I suspect it feeds on orphan souls but we'll keep my conspiracy theories out of this. The page i'm brought to announces that the time has come to show off the long awaited trailer for Warner Bros. latest DC Comics epic after what feels like years of quick but impactful reveals including character costumes and a Batmobile. I remind myself to include the never-ending unveiling of Jared Leto's Joker hairstyle in this list before remembering that is a different movie all together...which is very telling.

Popular Skullture: The Skull Motif in Pulps, Paperbacks and Comics

Kitchen Sink Books/Dark Horse Comics announces the publication of Popular Skullture: The Skull Motif in Pulps, Paperbacks and Comics by Monte Beauchamp.

Handsomely designed, this compact art book pays tribute to skull imagery on the covers of comic books, pulp magazines and paperbacks from the 1930s,’40s and ‘50s. For example, on a 1943 cover of the legendary pulp Amazing Stories, a menacing skull hovers in front of a beautiful woman in a peach-colored gown whose hands are outstretched. The title “Priestess of the Floating Skull” radiates from the glowing enchantress and skull, creating an immediate mystery. This cover and more than 150 others make this collection an irresistible page-turner.

Build The WWE Wrestler Of Tomorrow

The newest trend in kid-centric action figures is the build-a-figure model. Don't get this confused with the scheme to get collectors to buy a whole wave of action figures by putting bits of a slightly bigger (or sometimes tiny) figure in each package, allowing you to assemble your bonus character 1 foot at a time. These are figures with less articulation and paint applications, often implementing a chunkier feel, with body parts you can pull off and swap with another character's appendages. So far Hasbro has released Transformers, Star Wars and Marvel Comics characters with plans to add Jurassic World Dinosaurs to the mix, while Playmates has adopted the format for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now Mattel jumps in, allowing kids of all sizes to build the ultimate WWE Superstar with action figures that can battle right alongside their pre-existing collections!

The Mortal Kombat X Launch Trailer is Brutal As F*@!

Some video game launch trailers seek to tug on your heart strings with retro and iconic character returns, locking you on for the title that will hit shelves soon, and ultimately, free you of your pre-order money. The Mortal Kombat X launch trailer pushes you into a corner and rips your heart out of your chest, shows it to you and then sits you down on the comfiest couch, promising to hang onto your heart while you play, lest you choke on it in mid-Fatality. See..they love you, but it's an unhealthy love.

Comedy's Batman Obsession

This past weekend, Michael Keaton hit the Saturday Night Live stage for the first time in over 30 years, hot on the heels of his "Birdman" indie film success. His opening monologue began as more reflection than pure comedy, and was quickly stolen away by cast members Taran Killam and Bobby Moynihan...who had some memories to share of their own. Just as many of us would do, these fanboys rushed the stage, unable to hold back their geekery, to profess their love for the man who is the night AND the ghost with the most...all embodied in one being. Hilarity ensues...

David Lynch Exits New Twin Peaks

You were all looking forward to new episodes of Twin Peaks in this age of wonders when the X-Files has returned and Big Trouble in Little China toys can be found on Toys R Us shelves. Sadly, not all things can return the way we want them. David Lynch took to Twitter to announce the following:

Dear Twitter Friends, Showtime did not pull the plug on Twin Peaks. After 1 year and 4 months of negotiations, I left because not enough money was offered to do the script the way I felt it needed to be done. This weekend I started to call actors to let them know I would not be directing. Twin Peaks may still be very much alive at Showtime. I love the world of Twin Peaks and wish things could have worked out differently.
