Who Should Rule Atlantis?
First appearing way back in More Fun Comics #73 (Sept. 1941), Aquaman is one of the oldest comic book characters in existence. His longevity in popular culture, coupled with his incredible powers — super strength and durability, telepathy, ability to breathe underwater — and the fact that he is also the king of Atlantis on top of being a superhero should place Aquaman in the upper echelon of comic book characters, yet he has always been considered something of a laughing stock outside of the comic book community. A popular subject of derision on TV shows like Saturday Night Live and The Big Bang Theory, Aquaman's only live-action highlights have come from his appearances on Smallville, as played by Alan Ritchson, and in an Entourage sub-plot in which the too-lean and not-blonde Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier) played the "King of the Seven Seas" in a faux James Cameron movie.
Apparently, there is some talk at Warner Bros. about bringing Aquaman to the big screen in a solo movie, but the studio is far more invested in developing Green Lantern 2, The Flash and Wonder Woman so Aquaman's big screen debut will likely be as part of the ensemble Justice League movie. Who do you think has what it takes to not only salvage Aquaman's reputation, but stand alongside Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and the rest of the Justice Leaguers on the big screen?

In director Brad Anderson's (The Machinist) new post-apocalyptic horror movie, Vanishing on 7th Street, a mysterious blackout causes the majority of the human population to simply vanish, leaving only a handful of survivors to try to piece together the mystery...if they can stay alive. In the last preview clip that was released for the movie, we saw Luke (Hayden Christensen), a reporter in Detroit, waking up to find the city empty, with nothing but piles of clothing marking where people used to be. In the latest clip, Paul (John Leguizamo) seeks refuge in one of the only places in the city with power, a tavern with its own generator. But, when the power begins to go out, the evil that lurks within the darkness begins to creep in around him. watch the new clip >> Posted 01.12.11 by BrentJS

Director Brad Anderson isn't part of the Hollywood elite (yet), but those paying attention know that Anderson has been putting together an impressive resume over the past 10 years with dark thrillers like 2004's The Machinist and the creepy horror movie Session 9. Anderson's latest movie, Vanishing on 7th Street seems somewhere in the middle of those two previous works, as it follows a small group of survivors in a post-apocalyptic landscape, who slowly begin to realize that they have to try to stay alive from something hidden in the darkness. John Leguizamo, Thandie Newton, and Hayden Christensen star in the movie, which has a new trailer to promote its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Screen Gems has debuted the second trailer for the ensemble heist action movie Takers starring: Idris Elba, Paul Walker, Hayden Christensen, Zoe Saldana, Matt Dillon, Jay Hernandez, T.I. and Chris Brown.
Sounding somewhat in the same vein as The Italian Job and Ocean's Eleven, Takers revolves around a notorious group of bank robbers who continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low in between their heists. Posted 06.09.10 by reelz
