We’ve already posted a blog entry about the fan made film Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope a few weeks ago (or a couple of months ago?) but news about the live-action adaptation of The History of Trunks were few and far in between, and it’s easy to get the impression that the project has went the way of the do-do, like so many other attempts to add another D to Akira Toriyama’s iconic 2D franchise.

However, creators Robot Underdog has recently proven that the project is very much alive, by posting a preview video that is significantly meatier than the first one. Like the first video, this one showcases the actors and the special effects, but also shows you how well-done the fight scenes are. The film still looks rough around the edges, but we’re chalking it up to the inherent difficulty of adapting the Dragon Ball Z concept to live action, and in any case, they’ve already done way better than Evolution – using what we suspect is a mere fraction of the budget Hollywood had.

If you’ve ever wondered how the former heavyweight boxing champion, Mike Tyson, fares when solving problems with his wits instead of his fists (well, solving problems with his wits first then fists afterwards, to be more precise.) you have to tune in to the animated series Mike Tyson Mysteries, where the iconic athlete tries to lend his help in solving some mysteries, with the help of his adopted teenager daughter, the ghost of the Marquess of Queensberry, and an alcoholic carrier pigeon.

Warner Bros. Animation has released a bunch of new clips for the next episode, which airs on Monday, November 3, at 10:30 PM on Adult Swim. Titled “Ultimate Judgment Day,” the episode has Mike Tyson’s services being sought by someone at a well-known computer company. However, their mission gets complicated when they get stuck in the middle of a highly publicized chess match between a supercomputer and Garry Kasparov.

You can check out the clips below:

After the destruction of the cat civilization of Thundera by the evil Mumm-Ra, young Prince Lion-O leads a small band of survivors to safety. As the threats of Mumm-Ra ring in their ears, these determined cats know what they must do: find the Book of Omens. Using his powerful Sword of Omens, Lion-O guides his friends, facing vicious foes and making fantastic new allies while racing towards a showdown with Mumm-Ra. Now all 26 episodes are available in “sight beyond sight” 1080p HD on Blu-ray Disc as they were meant to be seen. So get ready to rip into the action with Lion-O, Tygra, Panthro, Snarf, Cheetara, Wily Kit, Wily Kat and hear the battle cry of “ThunderCats Ho!” once again, for the very first time!

Marvel has recently revealed a new phase of superhero movies, the list of which includes several properties that were heavily speculated upon by fans. The announcement was made during a fan event in Hollywood, one big enough to easily rival many of their Comic-Con presentations.

The list of properties that will be making their way to the big screen feature Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, and the Inhumans. The announcement also reveals that the third Avengers film will be a two-parter dubbed “Infinity War.”

Marvel also confirmed that the 3rd Captain America film would serve as a launching pad for the Civil War storyline, which had the government mandating registration for superheroes and the heroes being separated into pro-reg and anti-reg, with Iron Man and Captain America serving as leaders of the respective movements.

This coming December 16th, 8 pm, NBC will be celebrating the holidays with the stop-motion hour-long special Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas. The special is based on the popular film Elf and its hit broadway spin-off. The voice cast will include The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons as Buddy.

In Elf: Buddy’s Musical Christmas, Santa Claus narrates the story of Buddy’s travels to New York City in order to meet the father he never knew he had. Along the way, he manages to transform the lives of everyone he meets while opening his father’s eyes to the magic of Christmas. The story is a fresh retelling of the 2003 holiday film, with a new stop-motion style that marries the visual stylings of classic Christmas specials with the sharp sensibilities of a modern day holiday film.

Most Pokemon fans are content with just owning Omega ruby or Alpha Sapphire, and just gaining the exclusive Pokemon from the other title through trading (or through hacking, if it ever became possible.) However, those of you who live on the completionist side of the fence will be glad to know that Nintendo has announced plans to release a Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire Dual Pack in North America. And they’re rewarding you by including an incentive by way of an in-game bonus if you get the dual pack.

The in-game bonus is basically a download code for 100 potions each, which those of you who wish to pot their way to victory will completely appreciate. Of course, the meat and bones of the dual pack comes in the form of owning both games in a single neat box:

Last October 7th, Shout! Factory released Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart for home video, via a Blu-Ray Combo pack that includes a DVD and a Digital copy as well. The French animated film might not be come with as much prestige as one would expect from CG animated features that came from the major studios, but its roots are by no means less impressive – Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is based on the concept album from French rock band Dionysos and the illustrated novel La Mecanique du Coeur, which is written by the band’s lead singer Mathias Malzieu. Produced by Luc Besson’s company, the film also features stunning voicework from Les Miserables’ Samantha Barks and The Game of Thrones’ Michelle Fairley.

Visually, the film features top-notch stylized CG that brings to mind Burton and LAIKA’s visual stylings, managing a healthy blend of murkiness, innocence, and even humor without sacrificing either one at the alter of the other.

The premise is oddly unique, yet relatable: it focuses on a young boy who was born on the coldest day in history, which managed to freeze his heart. The boy would have died had it not been for a well-meaning witch who replaced his heart with a cuckoo-clock. Unfortunately, there is a catch: Jack must follow three cardinal rules in order to keep his mechanical heart ticking – first is never to touch the hands of the hear, second is to keep his anger in check, and most importantly – never, ever, fall in love.

Things start to take a turn for the worse when the boy meets Miss Acacia, a woman who has her fair share of secrets. Besides being nearsighted, she also sprouts horns when threatened. Finding it impossible not to develop feelings for each other, the couple must now journey to Miss Acacia’s home in Andalusia in order to prevent Jack from dying.

As implied above, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart might not have any of the big name animation studios in its resume, but don’t let that fool you into thinking that the movie doesn’t belong up there with the recent greats. It skews slightly towards an older audience but the themes aren’t dark enough to warrant the watchful eye of a parent or guardian. If a young watcher manages to understand the twists and turns of the tale, then it will be enjoyable enough to warrant a viewing. For those of us who are old yet young enough to enjoy a steampunk rock musical with a heart, then Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a welcome addition to the home video shelf (or your media player’s library, whichever one applies.)

When it comes to news regarding upcoming comic book movies, we used to get hiring of directors revealed first and then the stars afterwards. DC’s Wonder Woman is one of the not-so-rare exceptions. We’re only getting news that Warner is looking for a director now, even though Gal Gadot has locked in the lead role for some time (despite the massive and IMO unwarranted complaints about her not fitting the role.)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is looking specifically for a female director to helm the project, no doubt with the goal of providing a fresh new vision for the project in what is usually a male-dominated genre.

There are currently no potential candidates lined up, although we imagine it’s only a matter of time before names start dropping. The release is still a long way away, though, with the film scheduled for a June 23, 2017 release.

With all the controversy surrounding Edward Norton’s stint as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in Marvel’s pre-Avengers take on the green giant franchise – including ones that have painted both Norton and the studio in a bad light, it’s normal to expect that the actor might harbor some bitterness now that the franchise has really taken off. However, in a recent interview with NPR, Norton expressed his thoughts on the whole debacle:

“My feeling was that I experimented and experienced what I wanted to,” said Norton to NPR, when discussing his initial turn as Bruce Banner.

“I really, really enjoyed it. And yet, I looked at the balance of time in life that one spends not only making those sorts of films but then especially putting them out, and the obligations that rightly come with that.”

“There were just a lot of things… I wanted more diversity. I sort of chose to continue on my path of having a diversity of experiences. Maybe on some unconscious level, I didn’t want to have an association with one thing in any way degrade my effectiveness as an actor, in characters.”

“I think you can sort of do anything once, but if you do it too many times, it can become a suit that’s hard to take off, in other peoples’ eyes. And if I had continued on with it, I wouldn’t have made Moonrise Kingdom, or Grand Budapest, or Birdman, because those all overlapped with [Avengers].”

“And those were more the priority for me, but I continue to be a fan and I’m really, really happy I got to do it once.”

It’s a fair enough statement. Norton didn’t express any bitterness or resentment over how the whole thing went down, but didn’t downplay the significance of his decision. Contrary to previous reports about his conflicts with the creatives, it seems like there’s no longer any ill will against the studio. It may be an example of time eventually letting cooler heads prevail, and probably the fact that Norton is in a comfortable place career-wise and financially that a lucrative Marvel contract isn’t really much of a loss.

A few months ago, Toonami decided to forego airing Inuyasha’s Final Act despite the series being popular among viewers, mainly because they were already losing the broadcast rights to the franchise. However, it seems luck is on the fans’ side as Toonami has recently announced that they will be airing Inuyasha: The Final Act after all. The programming block is will be airing the episodes starting on November 15th, according to their official Twitter account.

Inuyasha: The Final Act consists of episodes based on the last 21 volumes of the manga series, which follows Inuyasha, Kagome, and companions Miroku, Sango, Shippo and Kirara as they search for the final fragments of the shattered Sacred Shikon Jewel and approach their final battle with Naraku. The Final Act is the final season of the anime, which is the reason why the previous decision to forego airing was met by complaints from fans of the series.

According to Toonami, they don’t expect to make many edits regarding content, but the ones that will be done will be in line with TV-MA content restrictions.

Canada’s Teletoon is prepping a new animated series titled Dr. Dimensionpants for its Can’t Miss Thursdays programming block. Scheduled for launch on November 6, 6:30 pm ET/PT, the 26 x 30 series will premiere day-and-date on Teletoon’s French feed in Quebec as Dr. Pantastique.

Dr. Dimensionpants is created by Brad Peyton (Cats & Dogs 2: Revenge of Kitty Galore, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), and focuses on 12-year old superhero Kyle, who once again proves that with great power comes great responsibility. Except in Kyle’s case, he’d rather not have so much of the responsibility. With the aid of a talking unicorn mentor named Phillip, Kyle in his Dr. Dimensionpants alter ego must learn how to master his powers while defending his hometown of Gandervill from various evils, all the while maintaining his sanity as he juggles schoolwork and family life with his spandex-clad adventures.

The series is produced by DHX Media and TELETOON.

By now, everybody has already seen the official trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which was leaked a couple of days ahead of Marvel’s planned premiere during an airing of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series. There are a couple of problems with the leaked trailer: first is that Despite Marvel’s cool-headed approach to the leak (with the official account jokingly blaming Hydra for the leak), it’s speculated that the early reveal might have hurt their plan to leverage the trailer premiere in order to bring more viewers to the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which could use a little bit of help ratings-wise. Next is that the leaked trailer had extremely poor quality.

There’s nothing that can be done to address the first problem at this point, but the second one is easy. The leak sort of convinced Marvel to release the official trailer ahead of schedule, so that you can see it in a quality that doesn’t make it look like a rushed animated GIF.

Avengers: Age of Ultron premieres in May 1, 2015.
