Quick holiday book recommendations - Mary Shelley, Bill Mauldin, and Wakanda Files

 by Mike RhodeA few books that would make good gifts have come in -- well, a lot have, but I'm behind like everyone else these days. Part of my problem is that, as an editor, I assigned two of these to academic reviewers for the International Journal of Comic Art, and then I read those reviewers opinions... so I've linked to those reviews as well.

Will Ferrell And Zooey Deschanel Recreated Their ‘Elf’ Duet And It’s The Holiday Spirit We All Need

The cast reunited this weekend for a live table read of the 2004 movie We all know that Elf is the best Christmas movie, and I’m not just saying that because Will Ferrell owns this company. (I’m kind of saying that because Will Ferrell owns this company.) It’s got everything a top-shelf holiday movie needs: snow, decorations, whimsical stop motion animals, and singing. To quote a certain giant elf, the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear. One of the ...

Look Upon the Final ‘Avatar 2’ Set Photos of 2020, Which Feature Fancy Filmmaking Equipment and a Space Boat

I am here to inform you there are more Avatar 2 set photos. At this point, I’m pretty sure you could compile a flipbook of all the behind-the-scenes pics and create your own movie if you were so inclined. As usual, the latest Avatar 2 set pics are odd curiosities, since so much of the movie is created in post-production. As a result, director James Cameron and company keep providing us with images of actors in motion capture suits walking around weird, mostly empty sets, and we have to use our ...

‘Servant’ Season 3 Ordered By Apple TV+ Ahead of Season 2

Servant season 2 hasn’t dropped yet, but Apple TV+ has already gone ahead and ordered season 3. The creepy M. Night Shyamalan-produced series created by Tony Basgallop and follows a mysterious couple who hire a mysterious nanny – everything is very mysterious in this show. Season 1 ended with a bit of a cliffhanger, and with this renewal news, it’s probably safe to assume season 2 will as well. I feel so lucky to announce @AppleTV is renewing #Servant for a season 3 before S2 even airs! App...

‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ Season 2 Trailer: The Campers Must Evolve or Die

The animated Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous adventures continue with an all-new season, arriving in January. The DreamWorks Animation/Netflix series follows a bunch of kids dealing with dino-mayhem all over Island Nublar, and season 2 has them stranded on the now-abandoned island. That would be bad enough as it is, but of course, there are all sorts of hungry dinosaurs on this particular island, so things are bound to get hairy.

Watch the Opening Scene of ‘Wonder Woman 1984,’ Which Takes Us Back to Themyscira

Wonder Woman 1984 is all about nostalgia. It’s in the title, after all. However, the release of the upcoming Wonder Woman sequel seems like it comes a little late to the ’80s nostalgia craze. But the opening scene of the new film is surprisingly not as nostalgic for the 1980s as it is for another time: when we first set on eyes on Themyscira in 2017’s Wonder Woman. The island populated by fierce Amazon warriors immediately captured the imaginations of audiences, so much so that a spin-off about...
