After an incredible debut weekend, will our previous box office number one hold on to the spot, or will a legendary King climb to the top of the heap? Here are our predictions:
Kong: Skull Island is an effects-driven film that seems like it would do well as a summer blockbuster, but instead here it is arriving just a few short weeks before Spring. This is the next in what is looking to be a shared universe between King Kong and Godzilla, with the potential for more giant monsters to come. Kong benefits from a great group of actors, including Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman, Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, along with decent reviews, but word of mouth around the final film of Marvel’s favourite mutant is going to dash Kong: Skull Island‘s dream of number one. Look for a second place debut with $43 million. Read the rest of this entry
This week we have two number one issues from Marvel Comics, one spinning out of a major crossover event and the other setting up its own crossover event. The Mighty Captain Marvel #1 chronicles Carol Danvers’ triumphant return to Alpha Flight as America’s greatest hero, and Monsters Unleashed adds a whole slew of new giant monsters to the already existing kaiju pantheon of the Marvel Universe. Check out my reviews after the jump.
With Kong: Skull Island on the horizon, and a rematch between King Kong and Godzilla in the planning stages, the world may be ready to go ape again, but King Kong has always been here, meet me after the jump for some gift ideas that may make you go ape!
Monsters like Dracula, Frankenstein, and Godzilla have had dozens of movies made about them, some good and some bad, but why is it that Jaws, a monster all too real, who chased folks out of the water for years, and made his debut in a near-perfect film, can’t get a decent sequel made? We’ll try to find out after the jump, when I look at the spawn of Jaws…
Regular readers here at Biff Bam Pop! know what a hardcore kaiju eiga fan I am, and especially of Godzilla, so you know as soon the newest Big G flick was available over here I would be seeing it, and reviewing it as part of 31 Days of Horror. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Shin Godzilla.
This is a special episode of the animated “Guardians of the Galaxy” series in that the team not only discovers the Asgardian Destroyer armor leading to an inevitable throwdown, but it also features new music by nerdcore champions Kirby Krackle… or does it? Meet me after the Moomba-fueled hyperspace jump for my thoughts on “Stuck in the Metal with You.”
I’ve written several times about kaiju eiga (Japanese giant monster movies) here at Biff Bam Pop! before, but the thing that much of the population should know is that despite the fact that they do rule, not all giant monsters are Japanese in origin, nor are they specific to the movies. I’m going to talk about three here whose ‘careers’ extended into the world of comics. Meet me after the jump for three pretty cool comic book kaiju – Gorgo, Konga, and Reptilicus!
Last week, before the cliffhanger to end all cliffhangers, we watched the Avengers Assemble team save the people of the planet New Corbin from the powerful grip of Thanos and his Black Order. We watched as the Avengers’ determination and bravery inspired the people to fight back against the inconceivable evil of the Mad Titan. Now with Earth threatened by Thanos, the Avengers have returned home to… no Earth… Meet me after the jump the exciting conclusion, the season two finale – “Avengers World!”
Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s an audio-zine for your mind, a nerd exploration of a nerd world, coming to you from across the vastness of suburban New Jersey via Skype. This week, we’re talking about Rowdy Roddy Piper and Ronda Rousey, and why Ray thinks writing memoria of wrestlers is dangerous business, along with all the usual stuff. See and hear more after the jump.
