Barry Levinson on THE BAY: Cinefantastique’s New York Comic Con 2012

Barry Levinson on THE BAY: Cinefantastique’s New York Comic Con 2012

Found footage horror is usually the domain of entry-level directors and cheapjack producers who have no problem using smeary images and awkward ellipses to cover for incompetent filmmaking. So what was Barry Levinson — he of DINER and GOOD MORNING, VIETNAM — doing slapping consumer equipment into his cast’s hands and sending them out to [...]

Bill Plympton: Cinefantastique’s New York Comic Con 2012

DC Comics’ Dan DiDio on DJANGO UNCHAINED and THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO: New York

It’s not always page-to-screen, you know. While DC Comics is still celebrating the successful conclusion of Chris Nolan’s Batman trilogy, the recent debut of the TV series ARROW, and the upcoming MAN OF STEEL, they’re also taking the process in the opposite direction, mounting graphic adaptations of two hot properties: the intense thriller The Girl [...]

Attack the Block’s Joe Cornish: New York Comic Con 2011 Podcast

You gotta love an alien invasion film where the aliens make the serious mistake of trying to invade some council estates (read, “projects”) in London and discover that the street-tough kids there are not going to yield the territory without racking up a body count. That’s the idea behind ATTACK THE BLOCK, Joe Cornish’s directorial [...]

Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Ashley Eckstein: New York Comic Con 2011 Video

DC, Marvel, Dark Horse all claimed significant shares of turf at this year’s New York Comic Con, but only STAR WARS staked out its own universe, incorporating numerous vendors within the confines of its expansive area (including Hallmark, for all your limited-edition Xmas ornament needs).
And there in the midst of it was Ashley Eckstein — [...]

Roger Corman: New York Comic Con 2011 Podcast

Roger Corman: New York Comic Con 2011 Podcast

You never forget your first Roger Corman film. Mine was THE TERROR, which I admittedly was drawn to out of a combined curiosity over a film that was shot in two days on leftover sets, and that featured a young Jack Nicholson before he became THE Jack Nicholson. But whether it was the cheap-ass drive-in [...]

Random Hunks o’ Con: New York Comic Con 2011 Video

Cinefantastique hit the floor of New York Comic Con 2011 and discovered… people. Lots ‘n’ lots of people. NYCC sold out for the entire weekend, and the upshot was that even the isolated reaches of the show floor became navigational nightmares at certain points during the day. Woe betide the mortal wandering Artists Alley who [...]
