Tokyo Game Show Girl Returns

Posted by Grey

The "Game Controller" (mostly Sony) Girl returns this year at the Tokyo Game Show.

The mascot that was created by renowned Osaka-born graphic illustrator Ippei Gyoubu for last year's Tokyo Game Show was striking eye-catching. A Meganekko with a PlayStation Controller hovering above her head, the design was a noticeable improvement over the previous editions.

With the impending commencement of E3 next month, organizers of the Tokyo Game Show (scheduled to return some time in September) have released the official poster of the event, unveiling the new look of the returning mascot.

Here's how she looked like last year, for those who have missed out the poster.

The Troll Hunter Preview: Undead Monday

Posted by Grey

This Undead Monday, we turn our focus on yet another undead creatures from beyond... TROLLS!!! Armed yourself to the teeth as we follow controversial Norwegian comedian Otto Jespersen and crew in this critically acclaimed Norwegian horror adventure film with a most quirky concept. Yes, we bring you The Troll Hunter.

TROLLS!!! Sorry, can't help but did it again there. We also can't help but wonder if the eponymous character in this Norwegian horror adventure film does that every time he sees his target.

In The Troll Hunter, you can expect a mockumentary horror film like no other. Written and directed by André Øvredal with a cast of largely unknown actors led by controversial Norwegian comedian Otto Jespersen (who is playing the eponymous character), The Troll Hunter seek to strike a balance between ancient Norse mythology and modern conspiracy theory, all with a touch of mischief. A peculiar monster hunt awaits in the Norwegian Woods.

Here's the official synopsis:

Shot in a vérité style, TROLLHUNTER is the story of a group of Norwegian film students that set out to capture real-life trolls on camera after learning their existence has been covered up for years by a government conspiracy. A thrilling and wildly entertaining film, TROLLHUNTER delivers truly fantastic images of giant trolls wreaking havoc on the countryside, with darkly funny adherence to the original Norwegian folklore.

And here's the trailer to the film.


A scene from the film.
Perhaps sharing our sentiments on these wretched beings, iO9 has the ringtone (or rather alarm tone in this case)"the mighty troll scream, ripped from the Troll Hunter himself" readily available at their page.

The Troll Hunter was released to critical acclaim in Norway last year and will be having a limited release in US come June 10th, along with a simultaneous release on Magnolia On-Demand.

X-Men: First Class' X-Change Students

Posted by Grey

J. Jonah Jameson meets Hank McCoy (AKA The Beast) in the University of Farmers.

In this unusual X-promotion advert between Matthew Vaughn's X-Men: First Class and the usual Farmers Insurance Group commercial you get featuring the fictional University of Farmers, J. K. Simmons (whose performance as J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man films is truly unforgettable), in his regular role of Professor Nathaniel Burke of the University of Farmers, introduces a new exchange student from Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters: Nicholas Hoult as Dr. Henry Philip "Hank" McCoy.

While indicative of the growing trend of cross-promotion between commercial with dry humor and movie tie-ins, this is worth a look at for its Marvel connection.

Once Upon a Time: First Look

Posted by Grey

With the television adaptation of Bill Willingham's critically acclaimed Vertigo comic, Fables, trapped in development hell, will ABC's Once Upon a Time satisfy your need of a TV series with a fairy tale undertone? Or do you really need one at that?

Continuing our coverage on on the upcoming new TV series set to debut next season, we take a look at the slate of forthcoming new dramas and comedies from ABC. With the cancellation of the sci-fi drama V and superhero drama No Ordinary Family among others, many new series have been picked up as a result.

However, apart from Steven Spielberg (yes, he is indeed busy with the TV scene too) and Oren Peli (the creator of "Paranormal Activity")'s sci-fi/horror/mokumentary series, The River, we do not see many likely gem from the announcement new series. While the remake of Charlie’s Angels is leading the pack for obvious reasons, we are not too positive over the prospect based on what we saw. On the other hand, we noticed the lower profile "Once Upon a Time" to be an item of interest.

Created by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (known for their work on Lost), Once Upon a Time tells a tale set in a New England town called Storybrooke, Maine. Unbeknown to all (even its residents), the town is actually a timeless world where the fairy tale characters are trapped, losing the memories of their fantastical past lives. When Emma Swan (House's Jennifer Morrison), a bail bonds collector arrives at the town with her recently reunited son who she have given up for adoption ten years earlier, intrigue and adventures kick off in the real world as they uncover the truth about the town... and themselves.

Apart from Jennifer Morrison in the leading role, Once Upon a Time also featured Ginnifer Goodwin as Mary Margaret Blanchard (who is actually Snow White), and Robert Carlyle as Mr. Gold (who is actually Rumplestiltskin). Reportedly, both Horowitz and Kitsis originally wanted to bring the concept to the small screen seven years prior to coming aboard Lost, but later opted to focus on the project only after the cseries was over. For fans of Bill Willingham's critically acclaimed Vertigo comic, Fables, this is probably as close as you can get to the real deal.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer, followed by the full synopsis of the series.



From the inventive minds of "Lost" executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis comes a bold new imagining of the world, where fairy tales and the modern-day are about to collide.

And they all lived happily ever after - or so everyone was led to believe. Emma Swan knows how to take care of herself. She's a 28-year-old bail bonds collector who's been on her own ever since she was abandoned as a baby. But when the son she gave up years ago finds her, everything starts to change. Henry is now 10 years old and in desperate need of Emma's help. He believes that Emma actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming's missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent her away to protect her from the Evil Queen's curse, which trapped the fairytale world forever, frozen in time, and brought them into our modern world. Of course Emma doesn't believe a word, but when she brings Henry back to Storybrooke, she finds herself drawn to this unusual boy and his strange New England town. Concerned for Henry, she decides to stay for a while, but she soon suspects that Storybrooke is more than it seems. It's a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close... where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don't remember who they once were. The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.

"Once Upon a Time" stars Ginnifer Goodwin ("Big Love") as Snow White/Sister Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison ("House MD") as Emma Swan, Robert Carlyle ("The Full Monty," "Trainspotting," "SGU Stargate Universe") as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold, Lana Parrilla as Evil Queen/Regina, Jamie Dornan as Sheriff Graham, Jared Gilmore ("Mad Men") as Henry, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/John Doe and Raphael Sbarge as Jiminy Cricket/Archie. "Once Upon a Time" was written by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, who are also executive producers, along with Steve Pearlman (ABC's "V"). The pilot is directed and executive-produced by Mark Mylod ("Entourage"). "Once Upon a Time" is from ABC Studios.


And here are some of the set pictures released by ABC.
