Official Deadpool Trailer(s)

THAT’S HOW YOU DO IT!

We were a little confused by the Deadpool trailer…Or trailers, now, we suppose.

It started off very well, with 20th Century Fox posting a trailer for the trailer of Deadpools movie, in which they barely acknowledge the fourth wall before they smash it to bits. Knowing that the actual trailer was coming out the next day, we were quite exited.

The Problem with Video Game Movies 2 – Electric Boogaloo

download (49)

CAN WE GET ONE GOOD MOVIE? JUST ONE?

As we’ve mentioned before here on the Fanbot, video game movies might seem like a good idea, but generally are not. The game you plan to adapt probably already has a massive fan following and you’ve got a very clear example of the general style and character likeness you can work towards.

Despite this, though, video game movies have a history of…Well…Let’s call it a history of not being very good and leave it at that, because otherwise this article would just be twelve paragraphs of profanity and the occasional movie title.

As mentioned last time, generally the fact that these movies suck is because the people making them have no real understanding of the franchise or the fan base behind it. What doesn’t help is that they keep choosing franchises that are either obviously unsuited for a movie adaption or that just don’t deserve it because the story is poor at best. The last article on this matter dealt with the upcoming Uncharted movie (Click here to read that), so what drew our attention this time?

The Assassins Creed movie.

IT KINDA SUCKS

You ever get the feeling that you’re totally alone and unprotected? Struggling against something you cannot begin to understand, that appears to show up everywhere? Have you ever felt like you were the only one who could see the truth, while everyone else simply went on with their lives and ignored the abomination in their midst?

Good. Then you know how we felt when we saw all the positive reviews after we finished watching It Follows.

IT TOOK 18 YEARS, BUT LOOK AT WHAT WE GOT!

It’s been a good few years for Dragonball (Z), for some reason. There was the ‘Battle of Gods’ movie in 2013, now there’s Revival of F of course and we’re even getting a new anime named Dragon Ball Super.

That’s not even all though, because just yesterday it was announced that the upcoming anime will also get a manga adaption to go with it! We’re not sure why everyone felt like making major Dragon Ball projects again, but we’re certainly not complaining.

What do we really know about the upcoming anime and manga, though?

Otaku Donderdag – Dragon Ball Super

HET DUURT 18 JAAR, MAAR DAN HEB JE OOK WAT!

De afgelopen paar jaar zijn goed geweest voor Dragon Ball (Z), om de één of andere reden. Er was de ‘Battle of Gods’ film in 2013, nu is er natuurlijk ‘Revival of F’ en we krijgen zelfs een nieuwe anime genaamd Dragon Ball Super.

Dat is nog niet eens alles, want gisteren werd bekend gemaakt dat de komende anime ook een manga aanpassing zal krijgen! We weten niet zeker waarom iedereen de afgelopen jaren ineens weer zin had om aan grote Dragon Ball projecten te werken, maar we klagen ook zeker niet.

Maar wat weten we nou eigenlijk over de nieuwe anime en manga?

Fan Art Friday – Fan-made Songs

THE WEB IS ALIVE WITH THE SOUND OF MUSIC

Last time we covered fan-made videos and this time we’re taking a slight spin on that. Shows, games, movies and even books sometimes present us with beautiful songs that stick with the fans. There’s quite a few games and movies that are almost universally hated, but praised for their soundtrack.

It’s no wonder, then, that the more musically talented fans often cover these songs and put their own spin on them. Some even take it further than that and go so far as to write and compose entirely original songs, just for a game or show they like.

Laatste Mad Max Fury Road Trailer!

Over slechts 2 weken komt Mad Max Fury Road uit in de bioscoop en we kunnen niet wachten. Afgelopen Dinsdag werd de laatste trailer online gezet en, net als de vorige trailer, ziet deze er geweldig uit. Helaas krijgen we wel weinig nieuws te zien.

We krijgen een beetje meer te zien van de personages en er wordt wat meer gezegd, maar de rest hebben we eigenlijk al gezien.

Why Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool movie absolutely has to be rated R

Ryan Reynolds

We greet you with a plate of chimichanga’s, because it’s time to talk chop. (Get it, chop-shop? Forget it.)

After the leak, and subsequent reception, of the 2-minute CG-clip showing off Ryan Reynolds as the always titillating and profoundly profane Deadpool, Marvel finally greenlit the production of a dedicated feature-film.

But, with rumors of a PG-13 rating spreading like wildfire, will the movie truly be able to capture the spirit of the comics?
