Wow another huge week for new comics to review. DC’s Future State is really kicking my butt and overloading the reviews but only one more week of that insanity is left.
Over the weekend Deadpool broke all sorts of box office records. Here is how it all stacked up. #1 opening weekend ($132.75M) ever in Fox history #1 opening weekend ever for an R-rated film #1 February opening weekend #1 Winter opening weekend #2 opening weekend ever for an original Marvel property title #5 opening weekend ever for a Marvel property title Even more impressive is that this all happened with a very small $58 million budget that is very low by Hollywood standards for a major title with visual effects and a star.
Over the weekend I finally got the chance to head up to California State University of Northridge that is currently holding an exhibit of Jack Kirby original artwork.
UPDATED 1/7/14 Part 2 that covers the Pinball Machines is now posted HERE I was fortunate enough today to get an early look at the Arcade Expo in Banning California that will be held on January 16-18 2015.
Back again with part 2 of the Blu-Ray and DVD gift guide. So lets dig into more stuff. If you missed part 1 the click HERE Snowpiercer ($29.99) I missed this one in the short time that it played in theaters over the summer due to the Weinstein Companies fighting with the director over the cut of the film for the US release and dumped it the same day as Transformers 4 opened.
With the success of the Marvel superhero films it’s was no big surprise that Warner Bros. who owns DC comics has decided to hit the overdrive button to play catch up with their own universe of films.
