The Exorcist: Series Premiere Review

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 22:14

FOX held a pilot screening for its new adaptation of The Exorcist, starring Geena Davis and Alfonso Herrera, at Comic-Con and we've got a non-spoilery advance review of it. The Exorcist will air Fridays this fall, premiering September 23rd.

Not so much of a pure reboot as it is a spiritual adaptation of 1973 iconic hour film, FOX's new version of The Exorcist hopes to bring some strained, strangled scares to TV. With the story now set in Chicago, the basic elements are the same. A demon has taken hold of a girl - now aged up from pre-teen Regan from the movie - and the mother, Angela (Geena Davis), has become concerned enough to consult with her local priest (Alfonso Herrera) about a possible possession. But is the daughter actually possessed or is she just darkly out of sorts due to having just experienced a traumatic car accident? Well, that's part of the mystery in this first episode.

Ghost Rider Robbie Reyes: Everything You Need to Know

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 18:55

The rumors were confirmed today at Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Comic-Con 2016 panel: Ghost Rider is coming to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4! Here's everything you need to know about Marvel's oft-misunderstood antihero:

Casual audiences are pretty familiar with Ghost Rider by now, thanks to the two movies starring Nicolas Cage as Johnny Blaze. But comic book readers will know that Blaze is one of many Ghost Riders who have raced their way across the Marvel Universe. Blaze is pretty much the quintessential Ghost Rider in terms of look, powers, origin story and prominence in the comics. He's the death-defying stunt racer who sold his soul to save a loved one and is now cursed to roam the highways and punish the wicked.

Ash vs Evil Dead Can Finally Reference Army of Darkness

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 18:40

Ash Williams was prohibited from referencing one of his grooviest adventures on the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead, but Army of Darkness will finally get its due on the Starz series when the show returns for season 2.

During IGN's San Diego Comic-Con livestream, Ash vs Evil Dead's executive producer Rob Tapert revealed that the rights issues that once prevented the show from acknowledging the third film in the Evil Dead universe, Army of Darkness, are no longer an obstacle. Not only have those problems apparently been resolved, but also the show fully intends on referencing Ash's time-hopping journey in the next season.

"We actually can reference

, and we reference it in this coming season," Tapert said during IGN's livestream.

Berserk Review

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 18:25

"Epiphany" was a strong episode that went a long way in restoring my faith in Berserk. There was a good mix of action and character development, and it was great to see familiar faces return and new (terrifying) ones appear.

The show opened with Guts taking a timeout from battle to visit old friends and get his equipment repaired by the blacksmith, Godo. Godo's gruffness is a good counterweight to Guts' brusque demeanor, and I was happy to see him (and Erica!) immediately lay into Guts for abandoning Casca so he could keep fighting ("you went on alone, leaving the remaining irreplaceable people behind"). It's rare for Guts to acknowledge any type of weakness, but after Godo's lecture, even the Black Swordsman was forced  to admit his quest for vengeance is really just a way to escape his guilty conscience.

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 18:10

During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, Rihanna was revealed to be playing Marion Crane, in the fifth and final season of Bates Motel.

The character Marion Crane, first portrayed by actress Janet Leigh, has become synonymous with Psycho and the horror genre when she was famously murdered in the shower by Norman Bates in Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 film Psycho.

"We wanted to thrust the iconic role into a contemporary spotlight and redefine it in a meaningful and exciting new way," executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ervin said in a statement. "We also heard Rihanna was a fan of the show, and we were huge fans of hers, so it was the perfect collision of creativity and fate."

How the Old Superman Fits Into DC's Rebirth

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 17:39

DC Comics Rebirth has reinvigorated their comics line, and so far no character has benefitted more from this new status quo than Superman. Today's Rebirth panel at Comic-Con took a brief look at where the last son of Krypton stands now and offered a few teases of what's to come.

Before diving into the main Superman books, the panel introduced writer Gene Yang (he had to leave early due to a booking mishap) to take a look at the New Super-Man. Kenan Kong, whom Yang described as "kind of a jerk", took up the mantle of China's Super-man a few weeks ago, and its clear this book will work hard to carve out its own little niche in the DC Universe. Yang explained how reluctant he was at first to take on the character:

Game of Thrones Actress on Why Sansa Hid Her Big Secret

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 17:27

Warning: Spoilers for the final two episodes of Game of Thrones season six.

During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, Games of Thrones actress Sophie Turner speculated on why Sansa didn't tell Jon Snow about a major plot point in the season's penultimate episode.

In The Battle of the Bastards, Littlefinger and the Knights of the Vale arrive in The North, surprising Ramsay Snow's army just as it's about to crush the life out of Jon Snow and Sansa's meager alliance of Wildlings and Northern Houses.

But the nagging question remained as to why Sansa didn't share her strategic plea for help with Jon Snow, or any of the military counselors, in the build up to the incredible battle.

Divided We Stand Will Explore Civil War II Fallout

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 16:54

All through Comic-Con, Marvel has been touting big changes for its comic universe following Civil War II. Today's Divided We Stand panel was no different, as Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso was joined by writers Jason Aaron, Reilly Brown, Ryan North, Humberto Ramos, David Walker, and Jim Zub to discuss what lies ahead for Marvel's heroes.

Kentucky Route Zero: Act 4 Review

Fri, 07/22/2016 - 16:09

Kentucky Route Zero: Act 4 opens with a giant, robotic woolly mammoth perched on a boat, and gets stranger from there. The weirdness serves as a valuable storytelling tool, not a gimmick, and is tactfully employed to offset presuppositions we don’t even know we have. Though the imagery is fanciful, it opens the door to this short but excellent adventure game episode’s exploration of truly serious themes: the desperation of poverty, the nature of friendship, and the impending threat of death.

A giant mammoth on a boat.
