I Am Legend‘s Will Smith is attached to star in the supernatural thriller Selling Time for 20th Century Fox, TheWrap reports.
“The story follows a man who is given a chance to relive the worst day of his life in exchange for seven years off his life expectancy.”
They explain that Smith does not have an official deal in place but he is in the process of coming aboard. Coincidentally, he was attached to star in Selling Time several years ago before scheduling conflicts got in the way.
Several A-list filmmakers are now circling the movie, though no decision has been made yet.
The script was initially written by former DreamWorks Television president Dan McDermott, who will rewrite the script as part of his original deal. Several other writers have taken a crack at the project including Spike Lee and brothers Steven and Derick Martini.
Columbia Pictures and MGM’s new RoboCop is now opening February 12, 2014, a few days later than originally planned. Apparently, it’s the perfect Valentine’s Day movie?
“In RoboCop, the year is 2029 and multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the centre of robot technology. Their drones are winning American wars around the globe and now they want to bring this technology to the home front. Alex Murphy is a loving husband, father and good cop doing his best to stem the tide of crime and corruption in Detroit. After he is critically injured in the line of duty, OmniCorp utilises their remarkable science of robotics to save Alex’s life. He returns to the streets of his beloved city with amazing new abilities, but with issues a regular man has never had to face before.“
Director Jose Padilha (Elite Squad) reimagines the tale of part man, part machine, all cop starring Joel Kinnaman (The Killing) as the title character, Gary Oldman (The Dark Knight Rises) as the scientist who creates RoboCop, and Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers) as media mogul Pat Novak. Peter Weller played the character in the original and the 1990 sequel.
Mark Hadley’s indie hit, Slender: The Eight Pages, essentially created its own subgenre of horror. After playthroughs and reaction videos claimed the Internet, and specifically YouTube, for a couple months last summer, Slender Man became the go-to mythos in which a bevy of indie developers set their games.
I’ve played a few of them on our YouTube channel, including Haunted Memories, SlenderSpace and The Eight Pages’ “reimagining”, Slender: The Arrival, which will be coming to Steam later this month. Many are obvious copies that don’t add much to Hadley’s formula, but there have also been a few worthy additions to this new subgenre.
Slender: The Nine Pages is more of the former, as you wander about a labyrinthine series of hallways in search of pages — nine this time, in case you didn’t already pick that up — that have been scattered about the environment. Slender Man is behind you, always, biding his time and waiting for you to turn around so he can do what he does best.
You can watch me play The Nine Pages in the video below, but beware, watching it may cause you to lose whatever respect you might have for me. I might get caught by Slendy before my second page — not my proudest moment.
If you’d rather play the game yourself, you can get it here.

Both Microsoft and Sony have confirmed their next-gen consoles will support 8-player party chat. The Xbox One’s chat system will be powered by Skype, which Microsoft claims will substantially improve the sound quality and reliability — two improvements the Xbox 360 could benefit from — though it’s a little surprising they aren’t increasing that number over what the Xbox 360 already provides. With games like Battlefield 4, which have multiplayer modes that support dozens of people, I suspect some players wouldn’t mind 10+ player party chat.
As for the PlayStation 4, the eight-player support is something the PS3 does not provide, so it’s a definite improvement. On top of that new feature, Sony has already confirmed that players using a PS4 will be able to chat with Vita users.
Garth Ennis and Steve Dillion’s controversial epic continues with a hard look at Cassidy. As Jesse’s right hand man on the search for God, Cassidy has often caused more trouble than he’s prevented. “Preacher: Dixie Fried” starts when the vampire suggests the motely crew head to New Orleans to enlist the help of a voodoo priest. This volume gives insight into Cassidy’s past. Ennis makes it clear that our secondary hero is nothing but trouble as the seeds of treachery are sown within the opening pages.
The narrative of “Preacher” is winding and unpredictable. Throughout all of this forward momentum Cassidy’s efforts have pushed to undo most progress. Jesse is blind to it because he sees a comrade in the vampire. One who will be with him to the end, but we know Cassidy is not quite the friend he makes himself out to be. Cassidy is in love with Tulip.
Naturally Tulip tells Cassidy to get fucked and continue on with his day. Ennis does a remarkable job of selling Cassidy’s desperation. He’s a lonely being who misunderstands his connections with others. In the end he’ll always be alone, and his connections quickly become nothing more than fleeting memories of friends long since dead.
Ennis makes sure to shows us what happens when these friends haven’t passed away. These people are jaded, betrayed, and bitter. Cassidy approaches them, as friends, but each of them detest him for reasons unknown to Jesse and Tulip, although Tulip has formed her assumptions.
“Dixie Fried” ensures that our heroes won’t be happy for long. This is Cassidy’s shining hour. When he’s put under the limelight he’s ugly, broken, and not quite the earnest man he’d like you to believe he is. Ennis’ storytelling is fantastic. He shows Cassidy’s eagerness, but in the end Jesse is no further along in his quest for God than when he first started. Cassidy’s broken relationships push them into a conflict that Jesse has no stake in.
Arseface finally makes contact with Jesse and his revenge is handled with beautiful simplicity. He’s always come across as a flatter character within the world of “Preacher” but his final beats here are true to the character. A fitting end to an odd ass faced man.
A band of wannabe vampires calling themselves “Les Enfants de Sang” are hot for Cassidy. Dillion portrays them as hapless losers who are anything but terrifying. When they take Tulip hostage, Dillion ensures that she has her moment to shine. He shows her kicking ass in a fantastic scene that shows she is absolutely fine on her own. The beautiful blonde is better with a gun than most. The art makes her sexy, powerful, and irresistible.
In the climax of the trade Dillion owns everything. A voodoo ritual enraptures Jesse, which is visually beautiful and utterly useless. Meanwhile these vampire losers attack the group, Cassidy loses his head, beautifully demonstrated by Dillion’s love for gore. While a particular panel with two lovers sharing a sword had me in a state of pure ecstasy.
The volume concludes with a one shot focusing on Cassidy’s past. “Blood and Whiskey” shows us how Cassidy betrayed all of his “friends” from the past story arc. He is a truly selfish being, one who misunderstands his relationships with others, and one who is desperately alone. It would be beautiful if it weren’t so damn sad. Ennis ensures that Cassidy’s treachery is inevitable. He clearly shows the reader that Cassidy will undo Jesse, almost by no fault of his own, its within his character to sever relationships.
The beautiful thing is with any recollection you can see that Cassidy has already undone much of Jesse’s efforts thus far in the series. This storyline may feel like a side road to the ultimate adventure, but it is so important in further solidifying character motivations.
The road ahead is sure to be bathed in blood, sacrilege, and treachery. We’re now onto the back end of Preacher’s run. Stick around as we barrel towards the conclusion of one of the best comic book series of all time.

Album review written by Lauren Rae
Alter Bridge is one of those bands that, for the most part, still seems to be somewhat of an undiscovered gem. Their fan base has grown exponentially over the years, and they do receive significant airplay. But there are still a lot of people who have not heard of them. And for those who have, well, like with Creed, you either love them or hate them. Funny how three of the four core members of that band seem to keep winding up in bands drawing those sorts of sentiments.
I happen to fall in the ‘love them’ category. I’ll openly admit I’m a huge Mark Tremonti fangirl and used to be a huge Creed fan, which (like with many of their admirers) is how I was introduced to them in 2005. One big factor with Alter Bridge is constant growth. Each album seems to be bigger than the last. And Fortress is no exception. In fact, it may set the precedent for future AB releases; it’s just that huge.
Right away, the album launches full force and doesn’t let go; you’re in for a full ride. “Cry of Achilles” is possibly one of the best album openers I’ve heard in a long time; the kind gives you goose bumps within the first minute. If I had to compare it to anything, I’d say it’s on par with Stone Sour’s “Gone Sovereign”. I can easily see “Bleed It Dry” (with its metal leanings) and “Lover” (the albums token broken ballad) becoming radio singles, especially the latter. “Waters Rising” stood out to me over all the other tracks – as it should everyone else – as singer Myles Kennedy was the backing singer this time and Mark Tremonti took over on lead vocals. And it’s an interesting contrast, his baritone coming first to the tenor of Myles’s voice, to which we all know can be very dominant in its four octave range. Personally, I’d like to see that happen more on the next album, whenever that may be.
I’ve listened to this album at least a dozen times already, trying to pick out a bad spot in the album. I feel as though I can’t give a good review unless I’m pointing out the good and the bad, even if it’s not in equal measure. And I literally cannot find a single thing wrong with Fortress. If you’ve never heard of or listened to Alter Bridge, I’d suggest you start now and with this one.

Here’s Fred Topel’s review out of TIFF 2011.
A smart spy thriller, “Velvet” #1 will keep readers on their toes as each plot twist hits them hard. This is an exciting glimpse into a secretive world filled with gun-toting traitors, high-ranking schemers, and trained assassins. No one can be trusted as everyone is pretending to live a double life in the “Velvet” series.

RELEASE: October 23, 2013
The underground organization, X-Ops, has sent their top secret agent, Jeff Keller, on a dangerous assignment in Paris. With the Eiffel Tower behind him, Jeff ends up taking out his gun and shooting a room full of innocent civilians. After dodging the French police, Jeff jumps across the rooftops before finally reaching his parked car. Just when he thought the fiasco was over, Jeff suddenly sees the shotgun pointed at him. At point-blank range, the shotgun blast kills Jeff before he can take out his piece. At the X-Ops headquarters in London, Velvet Temptation has just been debriefed about Jeff’s murder. Velvet will have to go through her own team in order to find Jeff’s killer.
Writer Ed Brubaker takes his espionage-driven narrative through different foreign settings and time periods. What I liked most about Brubaker’s writing is how he transitions the timeline between Velvet’s past and present. With the story set amid the ’70s and late ’60s, Brubaker has a way with the hard-bitten dialogue as the narrative steers toward noirish territory. When a secondary character calls Velvet nothing more than a “secretary,” it automatically sounds misogynist and hateful.
During the time jumps, Brubaker is able to hint at the many layers behind Velvet Temptation. When Velvet is at the X-Ops offices, she is more of a bookworm, kind of like a librarian, as she goes through tedious amounts of paperwork. But when she is out in the field, Velvet lets loose her hair, becoming seductive and adventurous. And when she is at home, Velvet acts like a completely different person, living a comfortably quiet life. Notice in the bedroom how there is no personal item belonging to her.
Artist Steve Epting has an interesting character design for Velvet. When Velvet is at the X-Ops headquarters, her wardrobe is classy and business-like. To keep up the elegant look, Epting lets a white strand of Velvet’s hair curl around her face. Epting uses rain as a way to establish the noir themes. When Velvet is walking across the rainy streets of London, she uses a brown trench coat to cover herself, as if she is always hiding something.
Epting’s illustrations in the opening pages will instantly hook the readers. It’s an action sequence gone horribly wrong as Jeff finds himself suddenly comprised. A tribute to the James Bond movies, specifically the Pierce Bronsan ones, Jeff is wearing a black suit and a bowtie as he fights his way through security. The panels burst with red hues as Jeff is taken down by the hidden gunman.
“Velvet” #1 kicks off to a great start and I hope the excitement keeps up in the next issue. If you’re a fan of “24″ and the Jason Bourne movies, you’re definitely going to enjoy the hell out of “Velvet.”

A major treat for horror movie fans, the “Army of Darkness/Re-Animator” one-shot special is full of witty one-liners, slapstick visual gags, and crazy undead action. A fresh spin on both franchises, the crossover becomes a stylish and over-the-top romp of gore and comedy. With Ash picking up his boomstick and Herbert West carrying his glowing green syringe, this unlikely team-up gives a whole new meaning to oddball lunacy.

RELEASE: October 23, 2013
After being sucked into a vortex, Ash Williams is spit out and thrown somewhere in the past. In 1922, Ash accidentally ends up in the medical hands of Dr. Herbert West. Because of his Hippocratic oath, Dr. West operates on Ash and gives him back his missing hand. In return, Ash becomes West’s new lab assistant and helps him in his underground research to extend life. Ash senses something is terribly wrong when he discovers Dr. West using the Necronomicon for his medical experiments. Dr. West will bring about something from the deadly incantation that even Ash cannot stop.
Writer Mark Rahner understands that this crossover entirely depends on the characterizations of his main protagonists. When Ash isn’t fighting the Deadites, Rahner portrays him as a dumb jock who is really out of his league. Rahner then depicts West as an intelligent doctor interested in saving lives, but willing to go to the extremes to do so. Rahner is having fun with the Dr. Frankenstein and Igor metaphor, especially when Ash finds himself hustled and outsmarted by Dr. West’s mind-games.
The chemistry between Ash and Dr. West works surprisingly very well because Rahner focuses on their dialogue. When Dr. West speaks, he is eloquent and technical, as if showing off his intelligence. Ash interrupts Dr. West’s monologues any chance he gets and throws in a witty comeback. Even though Dr. West is annoyed by the sarcastic remarks, he knows Ash can serve a better purpose in his experiments.
Artist Randy Valiente is able to capture Sam Raimi’s slapstick comedy and Stuart Gordon’s excessive use of gore in his panels. Valiente though does not replicate the looks of Bruce Campbell and Jeffrey Combs into his illustrations. Because the characters are supposed to be in their younger heyday, Valiente settles for a caricature style when illustrating Ash and Dr. West. In the opening pages, Valiente uses an extreme low angle when Ash meets Dr. West for the first time, making him seem larger than life.
One of my favorite illustrations is when Ash’s new hand takes a turn for the worst. Unable to control himself, Ash grabs Dr. West and begins to strangle him. Ash knows the only way to save Dr. West is by sawing off his own hand. In all its glory of blood and gore, Valiente shows Ash sawing off his new hand and makes Dr. West watch with his eyes wide open.
“Army of Darkness/Re-Animator” is an entertaining read that makes you wish the crossover was a little bit longer. After you finish this issue, you’ll end up watching the “Evil Dead” and “Re-Animator” DVDs all over again.

An ambitious overdose of emotion, action, and humor, “Hellboy: The Midnight Circus” is a tremendously fun ride. Readers get a chance to see what the blue-collar paranormal investigator was like as a child. As a prequel, this will clearly hook uninitiated newcomers into the critically acclaimed “Hellboy” series.
WRITTEN BY: Mike Mignola
ART BY: Duncan Fegredo
PUBLISHER: Dark Horse Comics
RELEASE: October 23, 2013
In a flashback to the past, Hellboy is a curious and naive little boy as he wanders around the hallways of the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense. The B.P.R.D. agents have become accustomed to Little Hellboy being around, even letting him join in on their raunchy conversations. But there are some who are terribly frightened of the demonic infant, who is destined to become the destroyer of mankind. Professor Trevor Bruttenholm though wants to believe he can guide the young lad to become a better man. When Hellboy suddenly runs away from the only place he knows, Bruttenholm has to find the missing child first before his real family from Hell get to him.
Influenced by Ray Bradbury’s novel, “Something Wicked This Way Comes,” writer Mike Mignola has come up with an interesting coming-of-age tale about the distinction between upbringing and growth. Symbolizing childhood innocence, Little Hellboy discovers the awkwardness of first crushes as he wanders around the traveling circus. Though he doesn’t understand what the word means, Little Hellboy meets Lust, who will tempt him for her own purposes. Each circus performer is trying to sway Hellboy to join them and claim his rightful throne in Hell.
As the narrative continues, Mignola develops the father/son relationship as he distinguishes parallels to Pinocchio’s journey to Hellboy’s. Though they are not related by blood, Professor Bruttenholm treats Little Hellboy as if he were his own son. Professor Bruttenholm sees himself as a father just trying to raise a child, who others perceive to be a “bad kid.” Living as an orphan, Little Hellboy wants to belong to a welcoming and loving family.
Throughout the storyline, Duncan Fegredo illustrates different artistic styles to heighten the visual experience. In the opening pages, Fegredo keeps the panels shot from Little Hellboy’s point-of-view. With the assistance of Dave Stewart’s coloring, the lines are a bit bolder and the character designs are more detailed when Little Hellboy enters the circus. In an unforgettable piece of imagery, Little Hellboy sees himself growing up across a hall of mirrors. Little Hellboy actually witnesses who he will become the monster everyone is so afraid of.
Fegredo nails the right emotional arcs between Little Hellboy and Professor Bruttenholm. Depicting childhood wonder, Little Hellboy always has this look of awe when he is speaking to the adults. Notice the anxiousness and confusion on Hellboy’s face when the B.P.R.D. agents are talking about sex. In his close-ups, Professor Bruttenholm has this worried and tired expression of an over-protective but loving parent.
Just in time for Halloween, “Hellboy: The Midnight Circus” is downright impossible to put down when you start reading. For those who only know about Hellboy through the Guillermo Del Toro movies, this a great way to be re-introduced to the character in the comics.
