fb share tweet share

BTTFYou might not recognize the name “Joey Spiotto,” but there’s a good chance you’ve seen and admired his work at some point. We’ve featured his brilliant “Little Golden Book” riffs on pop-culture staples such as Alien and Shaun of the Dead several times here on GFR over the years, but he just keeps putting out more awesome stuff. Now a bunch of that awesome stuff is set to be gathered together under one roof for an art show beginning this Friday, August 1 at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles.

Spiotto’s “Little Golden Books” pieces are like artifacts from a far superior alternate universe, one where your children can thrill to the cheerful adventures of cartoon-ified alien facehuggers, or a day in the life of precocious, cuddly versions of Pulp Fiction’s hitmen Vincent and Jules. (Just don’t ask about the sign on the front of Jimmie’s house.) I mean, come on, who wouldn’t love to be kicked to death by Alex from A Clockwork Orange if he looked this adorable?

Doctor Who S8 Premiere Hits Theaters And Peter Jackson May Still Helm An Episode

fb share tweet share

CapaldiLast November, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their beloved sci-fi adventure Doctor Who, the BBC released the accompanying special, The Day of the Doctor into movie theaters worldwide. With the upcoming debut of season eight, they’re trying to recapture the financial success of that endeavor, and will screen the first episode of Peter Capaldi’s reign as Time Lord in a similar way. Showrunner Stephen Moffat has also confirmed that he has been talking with Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson to helm a future episode.

The eighth series of the modern incarnation of Doctor Who is scheduled to premiere on Saturday, August 23, with a feature-length episode entitled “Deep Breath.” If you’re super excited and don’t think such an epic adventure can or should be contained on your television, you can also march yourself down to your local metroplex, plunk down a few hard-earned dollars, and watch this episode on a giant movie screen for one day only.

Get Your First Look At Every Episode Of Doctor Who Season 8

fb share tweet share

CapaldiAs of today, we’re exactly one month away from seeing new episodes of BBC’s long-lived sci-fi adventure series Doctor Who. Between the 50th anniversary festivities last year, and the fact that the upcoming season eight introduces us to Peter Capaldi’s twelfth incarnation of the Time Lord—he popped up in the last holiday special, but this is our first proper meeting—Whovians the world over are getting pretty pumped up. We don’t know a whole lot about the new chapters, but now we’ve got little nugget that provides a bit of insight into each of the dozen new episodes.

We’ve heard promises from the folks involved that these new episodes will usher in a darker, more serious version of the two-hearted Doctor from Gallifrey, and the trailers and teasers that we’ve seen only drive home this point. And with a director like Ben Wheatley—most known for his pitch black genre-bending films like Kill List and A Field in England— at the helm for the first two episodes, it’s hard to imagine anything else. (Those of you in the mood for more adventures of the previous two Doctors should check out the newly released comics, one each for Doctors number 10 and 11.)

Comic Review: Doctor Who: The Tenth And Eleventh Doctors

fb share tweet share

Doctor WhoSeason eight of BBC’s venerable sci-fi adventure Doctor Who is on on the way, and though the August 23 premiere date still feels like a rather long way off, we’ve got something that just might tide you over until then. Titan Comics unveiled not one, but two new continuing Doctor Who comics. While new episodes of the television series will properly introduce fans to Peter Capaldi’s twelfth incarnation of the Time Lord, these comics follow the adventures of fan favorite tenth and eleventh Doctors. Though both issues are quick hitters—you’ll be in and out in few minutes each—they’re a fun way to fill your time before the show returns.

Comic-Con 2014: Twelve Panels You Don’t Want To Miss On Saturday

fb share tweet share

Comic-Con 2014 is almost here! Beginning this Wednesday, one of the largest pop culture events around will completely overwhelm San Diego. There’s so much going on, it’s a monumental task just to figure out which of the countless panels and events you want to try and see. Well, we’re here to make your life just a little bit easier by running down all the panels that should be at the top of your must-see list. Here are our picks for the Saturday events you can’t afford to miss!

FuryRoadWarner Bros. Pictures (10:00am – 12:00pm, Hall H)
Warners has got two major science fiction pictures to show off in their Hall H presentation: George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road and the Wachowskis’ Jupiter Ascending (as well as the upcoming The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies). Unfortunately, the program guide doesn’t currently list which guests will be on hand to promote things. I would be very surprised if the notoriously media-shy Wachowskis put in an appearance, but I wouldn’t rule out stars Channing Tatum and/or Mila Kunis. On the Mad Max front, I’d guess we might see Miller on hand, and possibly even the new Max himself, actor Tom Hardy. I’d put the chances of somebody asking him to do the Bane voice at 230%. If nothing else, we know the panel will be screening footage from both movies.

Season eight of BBC’s long-running sci-fi adventure Doctor Who is quickly approaching. The new series, which kicks off on August 23, properly introduces us to Peter Capaldi’s 12th incarnation of the Time Lord—he turned up in the last holiday special, but that was more of a cameo than anything. To mark the occasion, the network has released this dramatic full-length trailer.

There just about everything you could want in this trailer, both for fans and non-fans alike. You have the Doctor, Clara (Jenna Louise Coleman), dinosaurs, Daleks, spaceships, explosions, and adventure of all varieties. From the look of things, these upcoming episodes are going to be a damn good time.
