WATCH the Awesome Fan-Made Trailer for Batman Vs. Superman

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Brace yourself for undoubtedly the first of many fan-made trailer for Zack Snyder's upcoming sequel to Man of Steel. And boy is this an awesome one thanks to Bryan Cranston. 




We know by now that the Dark Knight will be taking on the Man of Steel on the big screen for the very first time come 2013 in Zack Snyder's upcoming sequel to Man of Steel (some called it Batman Vs. Superman). We know Ben Affleck will be taking on the role of Batman, described as “a man who is older and wiser than Clark Kent and bears the scars of a seasoned crime fighter”.  And if there's one thing that we know, we are goddamn certain that there's gonna be an incredible amount of fan-made trailer for the much-anticipated film from now till its very release. But what we didn't really expect is to have the very first one we stumbled upon to be one that is so well-made. Perhaps the addition of Bryan Cranston's "Walter White" factor makes everything infinitely better? And it certainly doesn't hurt to have a thrillingly menacing Lex Luthor portrayed by the acclaimed actor from AMC's Breaking Bad.

Grand Theft Auto V: The Official Trailer

Posted by The Daily Zombies

In what is likely to be our final look at Grand Theft Auto V before the single most anticipated game of 2013 hit the stores,  we are once again reminded by Rockstar why this is, bar none, the undisputed Game of the Year. 


Before we move on with anything at all, we felt compelled to ask the question: Does one require any further reasons to pick up Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto V the very first moment it hits the stores (that will be 17 September, mark your calendar)? Our take on this question: None, after what we have seen thus far. We have seen the amazing gameplay trailer, we have taken a close look at the three players controlled protagonists: Michael, Trevor and Franklin, the revealing second trailer, and the announcement first trailer of the much-anticipated fifth installment in the critically acclaimed, best-selling Grand Theft Auto series. Nevertheless, ever the show-stopper, Rockstar has released an "Official Trailer" of the much-anticipated title ahead of its upcoming release in mere weeks.

Hit the jump to check out the awesome trailer for more of the same incredible gameplay elements we come to expect from the series.




And as if you still need even more enticing features from the title, Rockstar has unveiled their ambitious plan for Grand Theft Auto Online with this cool "Official Gameplay Video" and effortlessly concluded that our personal life will forever be lost with the release of the title. 

Here's the description for the clip, followed by the actual trailer:


Watch the new Official Gameplay Video for Grand Theft Auto Online - which shows how we've taken the fundamental GTA concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and made them available to multiple players in an incredibly detailed and responsive online world.

In Grand Theft Auto Online, you'll have the freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.


Access to Grand Theft Auto Online is free with every retail copy of Grand Theft Auto V and launches on October 1st.

 

Here’s the official synopsis for the title:

Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

Grand Theft Auto V is currently scheduled to be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17, 2013.


Star Trek: Khan - Paul Shipper’s Covers

Posted by The Daily Zombies

Learn more about Khan, the enigmatic master villain featured in J. J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness with IDW's official tie-in comic book series, Star Trek: Khan, complete with amazing covers by New Zealand artist Paul Shipper


"My name is Khan."

With that out of the way, we find the revealing of Benedict Cumberbatch's antagonist character of John Harrison as Khan Noonien Singh in J. J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness a satisfying process and the eventual film a well-made entertaining space-faring adventure. And we have Cumberbatch to thank for that given the fact that his moving portrayal as Khan Noonien Singh is definitely one of the most illuminating highlights of the film. 

And now fans of Cumberbatch's iteration of Khan can rejoice yet with the upcoming release of Star Trek: Khan, a six-issued limited series written by Mike Johnson with art by Claudia Balboni with the film's screenwriter Roberto Orci overseeing the project. Promising a revealing look at the origins of the enigmatic master villain, fans will be witnessing the legendary Eugenics Wars and the awakening of Khan by Admiral Marcus. 

Adding more elements to entice you on this upcoming series, New Zealand artist Paul Shipper has been tapped to conjure the cover art for the series. Without further ado, hit the jump to check out the first two covers of the series.

Cover for issue #1. 

Cover for issue #2. 

Here are more information from the official press release:

A new miniseries and more spin out of the blockbuster Star Trek Into Darkness!

San Diego, CA (July 12th, 2013) - This October, STAR TREK: KHAN will show intrepid readers just how the master villain of Star Trek Into Darkness became the intergalactic menace seen in the blockbuster film. Over six thrilling issues, Khan's secrets will be unlocked and the origin of evil will finally be uncovered.

Helmed by the veteran Star Trek team of writer Mike Johnson and artist Claudia Balboni, the series will be overseen by the film's screenwriter, Roberto Orci.    

"We're traveling back in time to show Khan's rise to power and give fans their first look at the legendary Eugenics Wars," says Johnson. "As the series unfolds we will see the events that led to Khan leaving Earth aboard the Botany Bay, and then jump forward to witness his awakening in the future by Admiral Marcus."

"Much like the way the Star Trek: Countdown comic book and our follow-up Nero miniseries helped flesh out that character after the first Star Trek movie," said Chris Ryall, IDW's Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief, "Khan will add dimension and depth to this new iteration one of the most classic villains in all of Star Trek lore."

In addition to KHAN, the only place to continue the epic story of J.J Abrams' Star Trek film universe is in the pages of IDW Publishing's ongoing Star Trek series. Also available is the collection of STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS, the exclusive prequel mini-series leading into the hit film.
If that weren't enough, the full run of the STAR TREK ongoing series has been filled with "Easter eggs" leading in to the new film! Fans without possession of a secret-unlocking tricorder are urged to pore over the first twenty issues of Star Trek.

As Johnson says, "Now that Into Darkness is in theaters, fans reading the ongoing series from issue #1 will pick up on details, both specific and thematic, that set up the movie and the stories that follow it."
STAR TREK: KHAN is a licensed product of CBS Consumer Products.


The ongoing missions of the starship Enterprise continue throughout the year, only from IDW!

Lobo: The New 52 Version

Posted by The Daily Zombies

This is not "The Main Man".

The Ultimate Bastich himself is "fragged" by DC Comics with quite possibly the defining "Jump-The-Shark" moment in the New 52's redesign initiative. Brace yourself for the new and "improved" Lobo, now available in the New 52 Universe. 



He was known throughout the galaxy by many names. The Scourge o' the Cosmos. The Ultimate Bastich. The Last Czarnarian. The Main Man. Undoubtedly the baddest interstellar bounty hunter in comicdom, Lobo takes on the worst adversary he has ever faced: His copyright owner, DC Comics, and their cursed New 52 relaunch initiative. And The Main Man came out losing more than just a few pounds of muscle, but the entire mojo that made the anti-hero work in the first place.

Back in Deathstroke #9, we first witnessed the Lobo from the New 52 DC Universe and were severely underwhelmed with Rob Liefield's clumsy rendition of the popular anti-hero that somehow resemble Bloodwulf (Liefield's very own unimaginative parody of the character back in 1993's Darker Image) than Lobo himself. 




Just so that you can imagine our joy when it came to our knowledge that this particular Lobo is a cheap knock-off and will be taken out by the real Lobo, DC decided to spit on the other cheek as well by outdoing the awfulness of Liefield's rendition when they unveiled the concept art of the "new and improved" Lobo last Friday.

From the words of DC Comics Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras:


The Lobo you think you know doesn’t exist.

Back when we introduced this “What’s New In The New 52” column, I told you that the most important word in The New 52 is "New." We're always striving to keep things exciting, different and surprising. Which is why JUSTICE LEAGUE #23.2: LOBO (from the creative team of Marguerite Bennett, Ben Oliver, Cliff Richards and Daniel Brown) contains a major surprise – one we’ve had planned for a while. The Lobo you’ve seen so far in the New 52 is not who you think he is. In this one-shot, you’ll be introduced to the real Lobo. A ruthless killer, Lobo is on a quest to kill the man who has taken his name.

This Lobo is equal parts strong, vicious, and driven. There’s a darker and more logical idea about what a force of nature like him is capable of. After all, this is someone who can infiltrate high society, fly a space ship, and adhere to a very specific moral code that’s not your typical anti-hero one. Oh, and, this one-shot takes place very far away from Earth. And when I say very far away, I mean it takes place literally on the other side of the galaxy.

There was a lot of thought put into how the real Lobo should look. Kenneth Rocafort’s various interpretations blew us away, but the design we landed on as the final choice is the last one in the above gallery. In this design, Ken updated Lobo’s facial tattoos and weaponry by adding laser edges to his blades and gloves that’ll give him extra strength with their mechanical usage. In the end, Ken transformed Lobo into a lean, mean killing machine.

Have a great weekend,
Bob

And with that, the weekend of every Lobo fans are ruined.

Hit the jump to check out all four concept art for the redesigned Lobo, and brace yourself for the very last one.




Designed by Superman artist Kenneth Rocafort, brace yourself for the bold new, androgynous Lobo!


Facing the tremendously negative backlash of fan responses to the new design, Marguerite Bennett, the writer of the Justice League #23.3: Lobo one-shot set to debut the reimagined character in September, has taken to her Tumblr to address the controversy (the post has since been deleted):


Dear Internet (which has called me some very unendearing names today), 

I was not in charge of the Lobo redesign. Ben Oliver was not in charge of the Lobo redesign. 
I wrote my script, and after it was completed, I was shown what the new character would look like.
For the record, the images you’ve seen—Ken Rocafort’s design and Aaron Kuder’s cover—are not what Lobo actually looks like in the book. I respectfully disagree with the decision to release that image.
 

When you go to get your comics on Wednesday, Sept 11, before you buy it (if you buy it), pick up Lobo and read the first four pages.

You can hate me by Page Two.


But if I do not have your attention by Page Four, you don’t have to read something of mine ever again.

Nevertheless. given Lobo's mostly whimsical storylines, we are still hopeful that this is just some publicity stunt to gain attention before the "real" Lobo shows up to take out the horrifying new Lobo.

Let's all cross our fingers for this one.

WATCH Mike Relm’s Cornetto Trilogy Megamix - Undead Monday

Posted by The Daily Zombies

With the release of The World's End, we take a retrospective look at Edgar Wright's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy courtesy of Mike Relm's awe-inspiring megamix clip mashing up all three films in the amazing trilogy. 


This Undead Monday, we celebrate the release of The World's End, the last Cornetto in Edgar Wright's Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy, with an amazing "Megamix" video clip that mashes all three films in the trilogy into almost four minutes of awesomeness. We have earlier seen audiovisual producer Mike Relm effortless mashing the entire Iron Man trilogy into one cool clip with Black Sabbath's rock anthem of the same name. With The Cornetto Trilogy Megamix, Relm has outdone himself by jamming the distinctly different vibes (but entertaining all the same) of 2004's Shaun of the Dead, 2007's Hot Fuzz, and The World's End, into one incredible ride down memory lane of one of the most entertaining trilogies in cinematic history.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.


And here's the poster for the special screening of the entire Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy.


Here's the official synopsis of the film:

20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hellbent on trying the drinking marathon again.  They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End.  As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s.  Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.


The World’s End is now available in fine theaters everywhere.

Gatchaman: First Look

Posted by Grey

One of the most iconic anime properties of the 70s, the colorful folks from the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman are back in a live-action film. The Daily Zombies takes a First Look at Gatchaman. 

While most of the Western audience might only remember them by "Battle of the Planets" or "G-Force: Guardians of Space", the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (科学忍者隊ガッチャマン Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman), better known by its abbreviated name Gatchaman, is without a doubt one of the most fondly remembered icons of anime back in the early days of 1970s. Like all nostalgia-inducing pop culture properties, it is just a matter of time for the five-member alien invader-bashing superhero ninja team to come back in one form or another. And come back they sure did, with a recently-released new anime series Gatchaman Crowds that doesn't really share much connection to the original, and now a live-action film that promise to unleash the five ninjas in their original might.


Freshly-released in Japan, the film expectedly failed to capture the imagination of the most reviewers, let alone living up to the reputation of the original. Nevertheless, this is one pop culture remnants of the 70s that we have particularly fond memories about.

Here are the cast and their respective anime counterparts.




And here's the trailer of the film.


The poster for the film.


Here's the official synopsis for the film:

Set in the near future, Gatchaman follows the story five special agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo, as they try to protect the world from the mysterious terrorist group who call themselves Galactor. With technology far surpasses that of humans, Galactor has declared war on the entire world and has already subjugated half of it. Trained to draw out the power from the mysterious crystal-like object called a “stone,” our five heroes will be called “Gatchaman.”

Gatchaman has been released in Japan on 24 August 2013.

For those who somehow remembered the CG adaptation of the anime by Imagi, the project featuring a script by Paul Dini has been officially scrapped. Here 's a look at how the project would eventually turn out should it continue further.
