So if your in Los Angeles head to the convention center and PITCH FOR  YOUR LIFE well not life they won’t introduce you to Lucille (TWD) or the horrors of the Red Wedding (GOT) but it will get your geek senses tingling! BUT if your not in LA they also are allowing fans to submit pitch ideas online!x
Legion M’s panel of industry insiders and executives are going to reward someone with $4,000 in cash prizes and a development deal with Legion M that could be worth $15,000 to fund the movie/TV show!

Here’s how it works:

2016 Star Wars™ Half Marathon - Disneyland® Resort, California. January 14-17, 2016

I’ve gone to the dark side for the Star Wars Half Marathon on January 17th in Anaheim next weekend and am sharked that I’m all about Darth Vader! If you plan to do the run next weekend make sure that you check out the REVISED RunDisney rules as far as cosplay goes because (I’m sad to say) no super fun costumes this year . So to stay on the safe side I will not be going as a Jedi or as Endor (no Ewoks for YOU) and had looked at some running pants that were printed but I’m frugal so didn’t want to spend too much money for items that would be too distracting at the gym. I decided going all black would be a good compromise to my not being able to wear Jedi robes. I am a bit curious about rather anyone will try to wear a full outfit but I won’t take a chance. I am very disappointed since a big part of the fun is seeing all of the other fans dress up in cosplay as you run or walk (or in my case) around Disney in the dark with all the rides lit up. It’s quite the sight and is enough to make anyone’s tiny little grinch heart grow three times as you walk around the park!

What are you doing to comply with the new rules? Let me know!

Star Wars Mini Talking Plush – Darth Vader $7.99

Darth Vader Hat $9.99

Eloquii Black Sequin Criss Cross Sweatshirt

Women’s Plus Size Leisure Legging Pants Black-Ava & Viv $17.99

I’m so excited to see that Vice Press has released officially licensed limited edition screen prints for ‘Attack the Block’ by Matt Taylor and ‘Strontium Dog’ and ‘Judge Dredd’ by Matt Ferguson will be available at Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival in Leeds November 14 & 15!

If your a fan of sci fi horror and have never seen Joe Cornish’s  ‘Attack of the Block’ run out and grab this delightful British film (it’s one of the best movies ‘that you’ve never seen’)! Matt has created a print that evokes the horror of low income neighborhood on it’s own defended by a bunch of juvenile delinquents!

Attack The Block by Matt Taylor Edition of 185 24”x18” Screen Print Glow In The Dark Ink Layer Printed by VG Kids 100# Construction Pure White French Paper £30

Strontium Dog by Matt Ferguson Edition of 100 18”x24” Screen Print With Metallic Inks Printed by Lady Lazarus 100# Cougar Natural £25

Judge Dredd by Matt Ferguson Edition of 120 12”x6” Screen Print Printed by White Duck Fenner Flora Giglio, the weight is 240gsm £10

 

 

Both pieces will be released exclusively at the Vice Press booth in the New Dock Hall Foyer at Thought Bubble Sequential Art Festival  in Leeds on Saturday the 14th of November and Sunday the 15th of November with remaining copies going online at Vice Press on Monday the 16th of November.

 

 

Vice Press will also be bringing along copies of Carlos Ezquerra’s “Dredd” screen print as well as the Vice Press t-shirt designed by Matt Ferguson and inspired by the classic “2000 AD” logo which are both currently available via the website.

 

From the producers of Shaun of the Dead, ATTACK THE BLOCK is a fast, funny, frightening action adventure movie that pits a teen street gang against an invasion of savage alien monsters. It turns a London housing project into a sci-fi battleground, the low-income apartment complex into a fortress under siege. And it turns a crazy mix of tough street kids into a team of kick ass heroes. It’s inner city versus outer space and it’s going to explode.

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Executive Producer Dave Filoni during a “Star Wars Rebels” voice recording session

Sarah Michelle Gellar and Executive Producer Dave Filoni during a “Star Wars Rebels” voice recording session

Well I’ve been excited about Star Wars Rebels after getting a chance to interview some of the cast at the 2014 San Diego Comic Con. I was able to have exclusive interviews (roundtable with Steve Blum  & Vanessa Marshall (Hera) with  Zeb (Steve Blum), Ezra (Taylor Gray)Tiya Sircar (Sabine). So watching the first season I have to say I did compare the first episode to Star Wars Clone Wars since Dave Filoni (interview at 2012 SDCC) is still the executive producer/supervising director but once I stopped saying to myself well it doesn’t look like clone wars, it’s new people and why did it have to end <wahhh>!!! I quickly grew to love my hard scrabble rebels trying to jumpstart a rebellion all alone! I mean as a geek chick how could I resist a female pilot Hera who stands up to the boys and STILL takes it straight to the Empire. I love a woman who won’t back down and Vanessa really is able to bring a new voice to the Star Wars universe not only as an adult but also as a new ‘Han Solo’ type instead of the usual damsel in distress that is in most action toons and movies! As the season has gone on Dave has really taken the time to give the characters time to develop a backstory that plays into their personality. When we first meet Ezra he’s just a smart aleck kid who I thought was going to be a dark haired Luke. Than as you got to know him you realize he was on his own and had to be self sufficient in a cold hard world. Sabine is woman who wants to use art to get people thinking about everything that the Empire has taken from them as well as kicking some major bootie as she flys around like Boba Fett!

I’m so excited for the second season of Star Wars Rebels after a finale that blew me away!

Like lots of Star Wars Fans I’ve been watching the new series on Disney XD and with the season finale I was blown away. (SPOILERS) The introduction in the final moments of Darth Vader  and getting to know the characters over the past months has been a huge pleasure.  Now I get to anticipate Sarah Michelle Gellar joining the cast and I wonder if she’ll cause trouble between Kanan and his lady love pilot Hera! Will she join as a part of the new rebel alliance that we just met in the season finale OR will she instead be with the Empire intent on the destruction of the Rebels? Drama bomb!!!

All I can say is that I hope Sarah has some crazy lightsaber that will remind all of us fangirls and fanboys first meeting her as Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Hopefully she, the cast and director will be joining us at the Star Wars Celebration 2015 in Anaheim! I know that I want to ask what it will be like to work with Freddie Prinze Jr., (her husband) again. What it’s like to join the Star Wars Universe. Has she been to Skywalker Ranch. AND has she had a chance to get her hands on an original lightsaber! Squeal my geek fangirl inner nerd is starting to show! Is it wrong that I want to ask her about Buffy the Vampire Slayer since like any crazy fan I can’t help but wonder if she’ll visit the universe again.  I have to say it’s unlikely but what can I say so many questions that I need to ask!

Did you see what Rodriguez said to TMZ (video details) about rather she’d been cast as the new Green Lantern:

I think it’s so stupid for everybody — because of this whole, you know, ‘minorities in Hollywood’ thing…But it’s so stupid, it’s like, stop stealing all the white people’s superheroes. Make up your own, you know what I’m saying? Like, what’s up with that?

Michelle Rodriguez Facebook Page

This is going to be short and sweet. As a nerd girl who grew up reading comic books back in the day I would like to tell Michelle she’s wrong that People of Color (POC), Women and LGBT (I added that) need to create their own mythology and heroes. We are creating our own characters but we have the same love for Superman, Wonderwoman, Batman, Aquaman and the Green Lantern (well I like him have never been super into that character) as the people who created them. Even more importantly Stan Lee himself (the GOD of comic books) says he’s HAPPY to have his characters evolve to keep up with society well what they heck now I’ve taken a little creative license paraphrase on it but click on link for direct quote (MTV Splashpage). These are fictional characters and as such as the current artists change them to reflect new storylines to keep them fresh well yes they might change color or sexuality or gender and that’s OK since Hollywood has a bad habit of whitewashing characters all the time. I can’t say how frustrated I am when they decide to cast a blonde woman in Akira or that it’s always OK to blind cast as long as it’s to white people. I like to see people who look like me reflected not just as background standins but as supporting cast members and STARS! She might be one of the chosen favorite few who get roles that normally would go to a white woman or man but she needs to acknowledge her privilege of being a light complexioned beautiful hispanic woman. The same as Zoe is getting color blind casting and is treated like an ‘exotic’ beauty as opposed as being considered Black or Latino. It seems as if some of these actors who are the chosen few to be able to transcend their race instead of helping others are just enjoying their privilege and leaving the rest behind. So instead of standing with the power class why don’t you stand with you fans? Why don’t you stand with other actors who want to be judged on talent instead of dismissed because they are Black, Mexican, Korean, Jewish and don’t look ‘white’ enough to be one of the chosen few? I say SHAME on you Michelle and Jennifer Lopez and Zoe Saldana and Anthony Mackie (to name a few) for not supporting other actors! I’m frustrated that when they have a new movie out all of a sudden they are down with brown and will give interviews to Latina Magazine, Ebony and sites to reach out to fellow POCs to get our dollar bills but they aren’t with us to voice that their should be more inclusion. Instead I hear them say that color doesn’t matter and it doesn’t for THEM! Since they are the lucky exception to the rules and as long as they get their money they are OK with it. But yet they still want OUR support to buy tickets for their movies but don’t want to be considered as one of ‘us’. So they can try to hoard all the good but eventually their fans will find actors who do WHO will be honest about not only their privilege but that image matters. Seeing a hero that looks like ‘me’ is life affirming and Hollywood better wise up to the changing demographics of not only the US but the world. White might right to them but GREEN is what funds the business! Oh and by the way Michelle if you don’t want to role am sure that a lot of kickass women of color can take the role and OWN it so step aside!
