Billy Zane Addresses His Army of Heartbroken 14 Year Old Fans

As is the ever spinning cycle of pop culture, fad and fashion, what was once popular may still yet return. Such is the case for mega cult film star Billy Zane whose unforgettable films like The Phantom and Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight won him the hearts and minds of millions of dedicated fans across the globe. Now it seems Mr. Zane is experiencing the resurgence in popularity that he so richly deserves! Screaming, squealing, somewhat angry and absolutely heartbroken teen and pre-teen girls have taken to the internet to show their undying love and support of Zane. This unprecedented spike in popularity can't be tied to any new projects announced as Zane's last 9 projects are still listed in various states of pre or post production and "Zombie Killers: Elephant's Graveyard" has not quite reached the level of instant cult classic status we had previously thought it might. Still, the endless tweets speak for themselves! Here's Billy Zane graciously reading some of them for his adoring public...

Malkovich, Paxton, McGowan & Bernthal Battle the Exo Zombies Infection

Remember that time Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Sarah Michelle Gellar led Robert Englund, Michael Rooker and Danny Trejo into battle against George Romero and his undead hordes? If you play all the Call of Duty games, including the additional downloadable content, then you do. Nearly rivalling that bit of awesome comes John Malkovich, Bill Paxton, Rose McGowan and John Bernthal battling jacked up super mutant cybernetically enhanced zombies in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - Exo Zombies Infection. ...and just like that...I want to spend the precious moments of my free time playing video games...all day..every day.

Godzilla Goes To Hell

Just like Jason before him, all great thundering lizards who occasionally lay waste to Asian cities must eventually pay for their crimes against humanity. Sure, defeating a monster hell bent on the apocalypse now and again has spared our pal Godzilla for some time, but what of those times he hit the city just for the sake of fu**ing sh*t up? It's time for Godzilla to go to hell.

In over six decades of battles and triumphs, Godzilla has never faced a challenge as great as what’s coming his way this July, when Godzilla goes to hell! In Godzilla in Hell, a five-issue miniseries launching in July, Godzilla will storm through the gates of hell itself, proving that the towering behemoth is King Of The Monsters both above and below!

With no warning and no sign of salvation, Godzilla is plummeted to the deepest, darkest bowels of the infernal kingdom. The mystery of what led to Godzilla’s damnation, and what it will face, will take readers on a dark and twisted journey unlike any Godzilla story before!

Ryan Reynolds Lounges In The Deadpool Movie Costume

REVEALS! These days, a studio is lucky enough to drop a reveal with some sort of fanfare before a crazed fan or newshound spoils it with onset pics or leaked imagery. The Thing from the new Fantastic Four movie was just shown, for the first time, in a grainy pic from some dude standing in front of a giant poster. NOT the way you want that to get out there, and the overwhelming negative reaction is proof. Then there's Ryan Reynolds who just Tweeted this image of, presumably, himself, in full Deadpool gear, lounging on a bear skin rug in front of a fireplace. THIS IS HOW IT IS DONE. ...And could it be any more perfect? No..the answer is no it could not. This was a rhetorical question.

An Open Letter To Toys R Us About Loss Prevention

Originally Posted to LinkedIn

To the non-collector and random viewer with no time to waste, the above collection of figures in the new Toys R Us 3 figure pack seems like a safe bet, though an odd grouping if you know even the tiniest bit about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While The X-Men's Cyclops, The Punisher and The Avenger's Black Widow are all "movie stars" in their own right (and therefore characters that make retailers happy), putting them together in a set is an odd move for a manufacturing giant like Hasbro. Hasbro would agree, as this isn't the lineup for this set at all.

Pacific Rim & Trick 'r Treat Top Legendary's New Comic Offerings

Legendary Comics announces exciting new titles to arrive in the Fall.

Guillermo del Toro promised more adventures from the world of Pacific Rim - and he has delivered. Legendary is taking fans back to the frontlines of a larger-than-life battleground with Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift, the official new comic series presented by director Guillermo del Toro, featuring a story from Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham. A continuation of the bestselling graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, the new Pacific Rim comic series will feature Jaegers never before seen in combat, squaring off against all-new Kaiju creatures.

Legendary is also proud to launch two original titles. First is the riveting espionage thriller Black Bag, starring Legendary Comics' first female action hero. This gripping series about a suburban wife-turned-covert government assassin comes from writer Chris Roberson, creator of the breakout comic iZombie (recently adapted into a network TV series), and features art from fast-rising talent JB Bastos, known for his standout work on Night Trap.
