Kick-Ass 2 coming in 2012!

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 05/05/2010 - 18:28

Universal Pictures' Kick-Ass took the number one spot at the US box office when it opened, taking down Clash of the Titans. Despite its opening success, the film's gross so far has been rather disappointing, though obviously it hasn't deterred the film-makers, as TotalFilm have reported that graphic novel scribe Mark Millar has confirmed today that production will begin on Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall next year for a 2012 release. The original's stars Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass) and Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Red Mist) have already expressed strong interest in returning for the sequel, with Plasse even commenting that Balls to the Wall will be a far more violent and dark movie, particularly with his character.

If you haven't read our five-star review or seen the film then where the hell have you been?! The video game is also out today!

Suffice to say we cannot wait for 2012! Can you? If you can't then you can check out Millar's comic book Kick-Ass sequel CLiNT, when it hits shelves in September. We certainly will be!

Kick-Ass: The Game available now!

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 05/05/2010 - 18:09

Universal Pictures' Kick-Ass has swooped into cinemas worldwide and received overwhelming critical acclaim. Have you seen our review? It's Team Screenjabber's most beloved film in a long time and for good reason. Well, a hell of a lot of good reasons actually. Now the hit movie has spawned a video game developed exclusively for the PlayStation Network and iPhone. Hop into the PlayStation Store as of today to download Kick-Ass: The Game, available for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable (PSP) at the price of £10.99, or if you live in States, $14.99.

From the trailer it does look pretty cheap and cheerful, but what can you expect from a fair-priced game created to be playable on the PSP and a mobile phone? IGN have only given the game a rating of 4/10, which doesn't say much, but maybe they took the game too seriously? From their review at least it sounds as if the game doesn't kick too much ass. Check out the trailer below and see what you think.

SYNOPSIS: Following up on the action-packed movie, Kick-Ass is a superhero action game where players are put to the test as they take on the role of three superheroes—Kick-Ass, Hit Girl, or Big Daddy. The game is a fully 3D action fighting game set in the third-person perspective, and features multiple environments within New York City. Face eight story missions and encounter frantic superhero action in face-offs with petty thugs and powerful mob bosses. Players will also have a blast with sub-missions and mini-games.

New poster and trailer for Shrek Forever After

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 05/05/2010 - 16:28

The brand new trailer and international poster for this summer's eagerly-awaited Shrek Forever After has arrived, and in epic fashion. Coming to cinemas worldwide in 3D, this will be the final chapter in the Shrek franchise, with it being capped off as a fantastical quadrilogy. I've only seen the first and it wasn't my cup of tea, but one thing is for sure—kids and adults alike adore the films. The third didn't go down so well with critics and fans, but surely the concluding part will have a spring in its step and be able to match the first two movies, right? For this time-travelling surefire blockbuster, literally only time will tell.

Fans will be pleased to know that the usual colourful ensemble of characters return, voiced by Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, Eddie Murphy, and Antonio Banderas.

Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 05/05/2010 - 10:49

After a week away with only BBC World to watch in my hotel room, I'm feeling my way back into the viewing schedules. Having just enjoyed some Italian sunshine, naturally I'm giving the thumbs up to Jamie Does... Venice (C4, 9pm). I'm a huge fan of risotto, that classic Venetian dish and the Essex wunderkind dishes up three versions tonight. I'm loving Oliver's mix of top-speed travelogue and rapid-fire recipes - if anything could inspire you to get cooking, this show should.

The trailer is here for Robert Rodriguez's Machete

Posted by Stuart OConnor | Wed, 05/05/2010 - 09:25

Robert Rodriguez's upcoming film Machete, starring Danny Trejo and based on the fake trailer of the same title from Robert's 2007 collaboration Grindhouse, with Quentin Tarantino, now has an official trailer! After dropping by at Harry Knowles' (Ain't It Cool News) house alongside Trejo, Rodriguez handed over what he calls his "illegal trailer" for the movie. According to Harry, Robert talked Fox into letting him put together a message for Arizona as a little Cinco De Mayo treat.

Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Neil Davey | Tue, 04/05/2010 - 06:03

Yay. Another detective drama. Double yay: another British detective drama. Thrill as familiar TV faces drink tea and a moderately grumpy detective solves a murder... That would, sadly, be the expected format. However, thanks to Spooks writer Neil Cross, the British genre gets a massive kick up the nethers tonight with Luther (BBC1, 9pm). The Wire's Idria Elba plays the titular DCI, a man feeling his way back into policing after a traumatic serial killer case, with the sort of uncanny intelligence last seen in Columbo re-runs. In this debut, the first of six, Luther is up against a child genius who he believes murdered her parents - but there's no evidence.

Tonight's Terrestrial Telly Tips

Posted by Neil Davey | Sun, 02/05/2010 - 07:01

SUNDAY

Modern Masters (BBC1, 9pm): With The South Bank Show gone (although campaigning strongly for a revival with the excellent "Revisited" concept), Auntie goes arty in the sort of slot usually reserved for costume dramas, dead bodies and / or Billie Piper. In a series of four programmes, art critic Alastair Sooke (no, me neither) takes a look at four of the last century's artistic greats — Warhol, Matisse, Picasso and Dali to try and understand their cultural significance. Tonight it's the soup can painting, Monroe-silk screening Warhol to come under scrutiny. The whole series apparently ties into a new Victoria & Albert Museum exhibition. Is this advertising, Auntie Beeb? I think we should be told...
