Comic Book Cover of the Week: X-men & Star Trek Team Up?!

Here’s funny little team up that went down back in 1998 and happens to have a cover I think is deserving for a spotlight if not only for how odd the whole idea is! The X-men appeared along the cast of the Star Trek: The Next Generation for this 64 page one shot, something many people have forgotten about or perhaps just never even considered existed. But there was of course a small demand by some fans to see these guys team up against not only the Borg but also the Sentinels! This cover features artwork by Cary Nord and Scott Koblish check it out…

There was also an alternate cover too:

Now only if we could have had the X-men team up with the original crew right? Well they fucking did that shit too in 1996!

Yeah and we even got to see Wolverine and Spock tangle a bit- so there’s that! Seems like Spock just may have served Wolverine his ass on a platter if really pushed to the limit-non-berserker Vulcan style!

 

 

Cyclops, The Punisher and Slingblade vs. The Killer Grizzly!

I’m pretty excited about this upcoming thriller called “Grizzly”! It was more recently known as “Endangered” then “Red machine” which I think is a better name, as many might think this is now a direct remake of the 1976 Grizzly bear horror flick of the same name(maybe it is?). I’m a pretty big fan of wilderness survival movies like “Black Water” which is a great realistic crocodile attacks flick, “The Edge” which was a pretty great wild Grizzly bear action flick, “Burning Bright” which was a neat-o trapped in the house with a savage tiger flick just to name a few. The premise is always pretty simple, totally believable and could actually happen to you(the tiger in the house scenario maybe not so likely)!

Grizzly looks so good mainly because of it’s cast, Billy bob Thornton, James “Cyclops” Marsden, Thomas Jane and Piper Perabo. The  trailer looks like a damn good time and quite some time ago I saw of the special effects work of this movie, mainly the animatronics used for some of the grizzly sequences and it instantly made me keep close watch for this. More recently recently I saw some make up effects done on Billy Bob with his face totally mangled by the grizzly with his ear dangling, yet he’s still on the hunt and it’s pretty crazy! I think this one is going to be pretty intense.

Well now it’s here, check it out!

Bryan Singer back to Direct X-MEN!!

I just read some fantastic news, It seems Bryan Singer WILL be returning to the X-men movie franchise! I just read an article on Cinematical.com that Singer is planning on directing X-men “Origins: First Class” which will follow the early days of original movie X-men, Cyclops, Beast, Storm and Jean Grey. I think this is an excellent idea though part of me wishes he would have jumped on board for the next Wolverine movie which I’m sure now will be another major dud.

I guess then this would be a whole new casting call for the younger versions of the X-men. Continue reading
