After a well-received appearance in the final season of WB’s seminal superhero series Smallville, the popular DC character Booster Gold is returning to the small screen in his own TV show for the Syfy channel.
The series is being headed up by Greg Berlanti’s production company, Berlanti Productions. Comic book fans might recall that Greg Berlanti is no stranger to the DC Universe. He created the superhero family drama No Ordinary Family and also wrote and produced Green Lantern (though you shouldn’t hold that against him). Comic book and TV scribe Andrew Kreisberg, who has written for Fringe, has signed on to write the pilot episode of the show.
Having his own TV show w0uld be a fitting development for Booster Gold, whose gimmick involves being a fame-hungry time traveler who uses future technology to become a modern-day ...

Nicolas Cage may be reprising his role as Johnny Blaze in the upcoming Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance, but otherwise the Marvel comic book superhero is getting a complete makeover in the sequel.
Early footage shown at the 2011 New York Comic-Con and in the Spirit of Vengeance trailer painted the flick as being a far cry from director Mark Steven Johnson’s generally-disliked 2007 Ghost Rider movie. The sequel not only looks to feature some hyper-stylized cinematography and action sequences (courtesy of Crank directing duo Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor); it also appears to have fully embraced the gritty and supernatural horror roots of the eponymous character.
It shouldn’t be too long until a full-length theatrical preview for Spirit of Vengeance is unleashed, given the film’s approaching release date. However, in the meantime, we have something else for your viewing pleasure: four new (unofficial) posters that do a nice ...

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is moving on to new cinematic fare, having completed his epic run as the famed boy wizard. But that doesn’t mean Mr. Radcliffe is leaving the supernatural world of the Potter films far behind. In fact, in the upcoming horror film The Woman In Black, Radcliffe takes on a particularly nasty ghost, sans magic wand.
If you liked the Woman in Black teaser trailer, or full trailer, then you’ll surely enjoy the latest trailer for the film, which reveals a bit more (but not too many) of the frightening situations that Radcliffe’s character will find himself in. We also have some “sneak peak” footage to share with you.
First, a little bit about what The Woman in Black is all about:

Just because we’re only a couple days away from the 2011 Thanksgiving holiday movie rush, doesn’t mean the Hollywood marketing machine is taking an early vacation. A healthy amount of promotional material and imagery from several upcoming releases has already been released this week.
The Hunger Games
For all you readers who are just tuning in, here is the lowdown on this young adult literary adaptation:
The Hunger Games revolves around Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), a sixteen-year-old girl forced to enter the titular competition – a futuristic televised event in which a teenage boy-girl pair or “tributes” from each region of Panem (a futuristic dystopian version of the United States) are forced to battle one another to the death in an arena, as a means of ...

“It’s time to get things started!” In part two of our interview with co-writer and star of The Muppets, Jason Segel, we discuss the highly effective marketing campaign for the film, his status as what he describes as, “The least masculine man in Hollywood,” and his next dream project — a kids adventure film that Segel describes as a hybrid of Labyrinth and Goonies.
If you haven’t seen it yet, but sure to take a look at part one of our Jason Segel Muppets Interview.
Screen Rant: Your films have the best marketing campaigns. Of course, writers and directors aren’t typically involved, but in this case it did feel like some scenes were shot specifically for the parodies. The Wanda Sykes/Danny Trejo scene in The Hangover parody in particular.
Jason Segel: “All the credit goes to the Disney marketing ...
