Fox have begun the viral marketing campaign for “X-Men: Days of Future Past” with this faux company promotional commercial for Trask Industries. The clip, which initially seems like a commercial for sanitary pads, also includes a glimpse of some Sentinel action.
At the same time, the website Trask-Industries.com is updated and includes a biography of Peter Dinklage’s Bolivar Trask character. The bio also breaks down elements of the plot.
The story starts out in the near future where the “anti-mutant defense system” known as the Sentinel program has been wiping out mutant kind. Wolverine’s consciousness is sent back in time to 1973 into his own younger body where he must get in touch with the younger Professor X and Magneto to stop this grim future from happening.
The site reveals that 1973 is also the year that Trask Industries introduced the first Sentinel production model, the Mark I. The Mark I undergoes numerous upgrades throughout the years and stands 18 feet tall.
The near future scenes, which look to be set in 2023, introduce the Mark X model, the “first complete overhaul of the Sentinel line”. That model sports “next-generation nanotechnology and bioweapon breakthroughs”.
When “The Chronicles of Riddick” came to a close, Vin Diesels Riddick was seen being crowned king of the Necromongers, the army of religious zealots taking over the galaxy.
It seems a far cry from the upcoming “Riddick” which puts the character back on a desolate planet fighting off mercenaries and the monstrous indigenous lifeforms. So how does he get there?
While the movie is expected to explain quite a bit of it, Universal has released an online motion comic prequel which also fills in some of the gap between the films including what happened to Karl Urbans Vaako.
April 22, 2013 – Los Angeles, CA – This May, BOOM! Studios is honored to be the home of the first original comic series created and written by Clive Barker himself – CLIVE BARKER’S NEXT TESTAMENT. With interior art by Haemi Jang (HELLRAISER: THE ROAD BELOW) and covers by illustrator Goni Montes, the twelve issue comic event is a bold new exploration of religious themes as only Barker can deliver.
Following the release of DC Comics and Rocksteady Studios “Batman: Arkham City” video game in 2010, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before the studio planned to revisit the franchise, teasing “Batman: Arkham World” in an animated acceptance speech at the Spike TV Video Game Awards in 2011 and rumors of the studio developing a prequel game featuring the Justice League.
The rumors of the “Arkham” franchises return are, in fact true — but while the game series will get another installment October 25, it will be without Rocksteady Studios. Game Informer revealed its May cover featuring “Batman: Arkham Origins” with concept art of both Batman and Deathstroke the Terminator making his first “Arkham” series appearance, and that Warner Bros. Games Montreal has taken over the franchise from Rocksteady and has full access to the studios modified Unreal engine used to create “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Batman: Arkham City.” The game is headed up by creative director Eric Holmes, who served as lead designer for “Prototype” and also wrote the IDW miniseries “Transformers: Megatron Origin.”
As the name implies, “Batman: Arkham Origins” takes place before “Batman: Arkham Asylum” when eight of the worlds greatest assassins come to Gotham City on Christmas Eve to kill Batman.
The change in studio isnt the only major shift from the past two “Arkham” installments — its already been revealed that Paul Dini, who wrote the story for both “Arkham” games, didnt plan to come back for a third time. Game Informer also reports that Warner Bros. Games Montreal will simultaneously release a handheld version of the game called “Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate” for 3DS and PlayStation Vita.

This Spring, Red 5 comics will have a new addition alongside their other well known characters like Atomic Robo and Bonnie Lass. Bodie Troll is a “cute, furry, little grump” (think Disney’s Stitch with a
“non-family-friendly” rating) from Hagadorn Village where he strives to strike terror and fear into anyone crossing his path. Much to his dismay, he is anything but scary and everyone’s favorite little guy. When he’s not munching on dirty roots and sour milk, he’s running errands for a fairy godmother. From the Jay P. Fosgitt, issue #1 of Bodie Troll is set to hit shelves this April.
