Posted by The Daily Zombies

Excelsior! Los Angeles-based artist Mike Mitchell is back with his awe-inspiring portraits at "Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo", his latest show at the Mondo Gallery set to run from 26 April to 25 May and focusing on the popular characters from Marvel Comics. 



While we have previously featured the works of Mike Mitchell, we were finally swept away by the brilliant Los Angeles-based artist last April with the launch of the artist's solo gallery show by Mondo. An exercise in straight-up ingenious artwork and exciting design in minimalism, the series presented in the show contained side portraits of some of the most colorful personalities we have seen in cinematic history from Oldboy's Oh Dae-su, Jamie Foxx's Django, to They Live's Roddy Piper.


This year, in collaboration with the collectible art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Mitchell is back with a vengeance with “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo”, a gallery of portraits of the popular characters of Marvel Comics. 




From the press release:

MONDO’S SPECIAL MARVEL SHOW FEATURES
 THE ARTWORK OF MIKE MITCHELL
A Collection of Portraits From Marvel’s Vast Library of Characters

Austin, TX— Tuesday, April 15, 2014– Mondo announces “Mike Mitchell x Marvel x Mondo” a comics-themed show featuring artist Mike Mitchell’s iconic portraits of Marvel’s huge stable of heroes and villains, running from April 25th through May 17th. The characters of The Avengers, X-Men and Spider-man will be represented along with many others from Marvel’s incredible library. The opening night event will be Friday, April 25th from 7 – 10pm at the Mondo Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe St. in Austin, TX. Artist Mike Mitchell will be in attendance.

“My love for Marvel Comics was an integral part of growing up. Not just the comics, but the action figures, video games and cartoons. My intention with this show was to take those characters out of their action-oriented world and give them a moment of silence to catch their breath. There’s a humanizing quality to that which I find extremely interesting. This has easily been the most ambitious project I’ve ever taken on, and it’s due in part to my love for their universe; which is fictional by definition, but real in my mind and in the minds of others,” said Mitchell.


So without further ado, hit the jump to check out some of Mitchell’s marvelous take on iconic Marvel characters the likes of Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Black Cat, Bullseye, Luke Cage, and Mysterio.  



Black Cat
Edition: 90
Price: $60

Ridley Scott Trilogy by Candykiller

Three of Ridley Scott's most iconic films are immortalized by Scotland-based artist "Candykiller", AKA Brian Taylor. 



1979's Alien.

1982's Blade Runner. 

1985's Legend.

While the connecting factor of all of the above three films is no doubt being a part of the prolific body of work from celebrated British film-maker Sir Ridley Scott, all three are also undoubtedly all-time classics or self-styled cult films in their own rights.

X-Men: Days of Future Past - New Trailers & Posters

Posted by The Daily Zombies

X marks the spot next month as we brace ourselves with The Daily Zombies' most anticipated film of the year, X-Men: Days of Future Past. With the release of Bryan Singer ensemble superhero epic in our immediate horizon, 20th Century Fox has released the awesome third and possibly final trailer for the film. 


Easily the most ambitious superhero film since Marvel Studios' box office-smashing, film industry-changing success with The Avengers, X-Men: Days of Future Past has been on the very top of the list for the Most Anticipated Film of 2014 here at The Daily Zombies. With superhero mania running all over Hollywood as of late, it is only right that the gathering of the cinematic interpretations of Marvel's merry mutants at 20th Century Fox requires this level of fan anticipation especially given the fact that the seventh film in the X-Men film franchise (including the Wolverine films) is the second-most expensive film ever produced by the studio (a budget of an estimated $225 million, slightly dwarfed by number one on the list, James Cameron's Avatar at $237 million, according to Hollywood Report).

With the next installment for the franchise announced well ahead of the release of Days of Future Past, we can definitely appreciate the level of importance the franchise is by now in the eyes of the Powers-That-Be at 20th Century Fox. Since it has been confirmed that X-Men: Apocalypse will be both featuring the eponymous archnemesis/saviour of all mutantkind (it's complicated, because comics) and set in the glorious 80s, we are certain that a bold direction has been set on course at least until 27th May, 2016. 

Back to Days of Future Past, 20th Century Fox is definitely pulling no punches in its marketing department when it comes to the trailer.  An all-new trailer that really serves as a summary of the film complete with all kinds of spoilers (big and small) has been released and we can assure you that despite our dismay over the spoilery contents, is nothing short of freaking awesome. With further ado, hit the jump to check out the exciting trailer. 





And here's the second trailer which is every bit as powerful though less spoilery.


And here are a collection of the recently-released posters for the film, which is a bit of an unfortunate hit-and-miss in our undead opinions.


For example, the one right below is perfectly well-composed with great color theme but a good number of the characters are all over the places with Patrick Stewart's Professor X being the main flaw for apparently farting a massive inferno.















Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

The ultimate X-Men ensemble fights a war for the survival of the species across two time periods in X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST. The beloved characters from the original “X-Men” film trilogy join forces with their younger selves from “X-Men: First Class,” in an epic battle that must change the past — to save our future.

Directed by Bryan Singer and starring an incredible ensemble cast featuring Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore, Peter Dinklage, Omar Sy, Halle Berry, Daniel Cudmore, Fan Bingbing, Evan Peters, Josh Helman, Lucas Till and Boo Boo Stewart, X-Men: Days of Future Past is currently scheduled to hit the theaters on May 23, 2014.



Gone Girl: First Trailer & Poster

Posted by The Daily Zombies

With David Fincher set to return to the cinema with Gone Girl this October, 20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for the thriller based on the novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn. 



While we haven't the chance to check out Gone Girl, the best-selling thriller novel of the same name written by Gillian Flynn, our anticipation for the film adaptation of the novel by David Fincher has been well-adjusted since our First Look at the film courtesy of the coverage by Entertainment Weekly back in January. 

With the thriller set to open in October, 20th Century Fox has quietly released the first trailer of the film, cleverly subverting the unknowing audience's expectations from a straight story into what appears to be a much darker tale with a monster at the end of it. Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the trailer. 




The recently-released poster takes on a viral marketing approach.

The first official image for the film released via 20th Century Fox’s Twitter.


Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

GONE GIRL – directed by David Fincher and based upon the global bestseller by Gillian Flynn – unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?

And here’s the synopsis for the original novel written by Gillian Flynn:

Marriage can be a real killer.

One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. TheChicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn.
On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy’s diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?
As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet?

With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

Gone Girl is currently scheduled for release on 3rd October 2014.

Last year, DC Comics blown us away with the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Superman by releasing a stunning two-minute animated short film. Conjured by Man of Steel director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. Animation's very own Bruce Timm, the animated short featured an unrelenting journey into the colorful history of the Man of Steel as we witnessed the many incarnation of the comic book icon across pop culture throughout the decades. 

This year, as we celebrate the 75th anniversary of yet another important icon of not just comics but all facets of pop culture, Bruce Timm is back to revisit the one and only Batman with his iconic rendition of the Dark Knight. While any self-respecting fans of Batman ought to be familiar with the Timm's influential work in "Batman: The Animated Series" back in the 90s, it has been more than a while since we last saw any animated interpretation of Batman by Timm. With the signature voice of Batman, veteran voice actor Kevin Conroy back on board for this one, Timm went a step even further to give us his uniquely retro vision of Batman with a story that harkens back to the Caped Crusader's 1930s roots. And in an effort to stay true to the retro theme, the animated short is presented entirely in black and white. Conceived, written, storyboarded, designed, and directed by Timm, Strange Days was released as part of the DC Nation Shorts on Wednesday. 

With no further ado, brace yourself for some good ol' Strange Day and hit the jump to check out the two-minute animated short.





And just so you know, a Batman adventure set in his original era of 1939 is exactly what Bruce Timm has in mind if he is, to quote him, the "boss of the world". To learn more on the origins of Strange Days, head over to Comics Alliance to check out an exclusive interview with the acclaimed animator.

Here are some of the image and storyboard art for the animated short.








Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Cowabunga! The "Heroes in a Half-Shell" are back in an upcoming live-action feature film for the new generation. The Daily Zombies takes a First Look at Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle with the recently-released posters and trailer for the film. 


Despite earlier claims and rumors, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to return to the big screen not as aliens and with the "Teenage Mutant" namesake intact. To many, this particular fact is already a good cause for solace. After all, the "Heroes in a Half-Shell" have captured the imagination of an entire generation back in the late 80s with the animated series and to spit in the collective face of this particular generation of now-adult consumers would be a commercial suicide even if your name is Michael Bay.

Produced by Michael Bay and directed by Jonathan Liebesman, the South African film-maker that previously brought us Battle: Los Angeles and Wrath of the Titans, Paramount Pictures' upcoming live-action take on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature CG motion-captured performances of actors as the iconic quartet of anthropmorphic crime-fighters in the street of New York. Rounding up the cast would be Megan Fox as April O'Neal, the journalist in a yellow-jumpsuit, Will Arnett (who last amazed us as the goddamn Batman in The Lego Movie) as Vernon Fenwick, April's cameraman, and last but definitely not the least, the ever-dependable William Fichtner stretching his villanous muscles as Shredder.

With no further ado, hit the jump to check out the first teaser trailer.



The recently-released teaser poster set.




And here are some of the screenshots from the trailer, as well as set pictures for the film.













Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

Starring Megan Fox, Will Arnett, William Fichtner, Whoopi Goldberg, and featuring the voice of Johnny Knoxville and Tony Shalhoub,  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is currently scheduled to open on 8th August, 2014.
