CastEuroamerica (formerly North America and the European Union) and New Shanghai (formerly China and South East Asia) fight for political power in the near dystopian future in the year 2084.

Wonder Woman is coming to NBC

24 Jan 2011

In an  about face  NBC has given the go ahead on the David E. Kelley's Wonder Woman series that not just last year they had nixed.  Well from what I understand it is the pilot not the entire series . However superhero shows have done well in the past for networks there is no reason that this reboot can not do the same. Him I wonder if there will be another Wonder Woman Pinup craze like Linda Carder did in the 70's

Sam Raimi will direct Wizard of Oz prequel

20 Jun 2010

Disney is going to do a reboot of the 1939 classic iconic film Wizard of Oz and Sam Raimi will be directing it. Of course it will be done in digital 3D also. Sources say the film will be a prequel to the original dealing with the Wizard himself as a youngster that gets via tornado to Oz. Which to my surprise in one of the comments there was a refference of how the story would not match up to the original stories of Oz . 40 of them to be exact . Most you can read on line for free because its public domain (Project Gutenberg is one of those online Public Domain sites).

I am sure Disney will do a good job with this movie and the children will love it. But I thought it would be fun to do some research and look into the Wizards beginnings mainly out of curiosity but also to see how close the movie plot when it finally comes out would be based off the novels or will Disney and the screen writers just take a totally new direction all together.

Is Godzilla returning to America ?

15 Feb 2010

Back in August of 2009 I came across an articles from Bloody - Disgusting that confirmed  that Legendary Pictures is set to reboot the king of all monsters Godzilla in another attempt to bring the big guy back to America. We all know how the 1998 attempt went. It was a horrid reboot that was not even Godzilla. It was so bad the Japanese renamed it Zilla and there was even a clip in the last Godzilla movie made "Final Wars" where Godzilla fries Zilla. As seen in this video clip. It kind of gives you a clue of what they really thought of that film.
