(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 The creative minds behind “Haunted Trailer” and “Getting Schooled”, a personal favorite of Nowhere California, are getting ready to roll film on their next production and they want you to roll the dice with them in the form of an indiegogo project.

 “Life Insurance Lottery” follows a down and out loser, as he wishes for the simple life and joins a club that could be the answer to all of his dreams; but when his friends start to die, he must choose between a growing bank account and stopping a rising body count.

 The writer behind this film is Chuck Norfolk and he originally submitted this script for the third season of the “Project Greenlight” television series, the script was ranked in the top 20% of the competition and, after 16 years on a hard drive, the time has come for “Life Insurance Lottery” to become a big screen reality.

 The first part of that reality is an indiegogo project to achieve a budget this film deserves, you can check out this project by CLICKING HERE On this page, you can check out plans for the production and budget. You can meet the people that will create this film from behind and in front of the camera. Also, a key budget point has been revealed that a secret backer will match funds up to $15,000 and that should be a prime example that even a dollar will go a long way.

 Now, with any crowd funding projects, the perks can be as important as the campaign and the rewards for the “Life Insurance Lottery” project will allow you to leave your own mark on this movie. The details of these perks are worth the viewing and are well worth your money.

 This project is currently live and we will keep you posted on the progress of this production. In Nowhere California’s lifetime, we take great pride in the independent creativity that we have shared with our listeners and this production will continue this path.

A Nowhere Detour To The Underworld..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 The holidays have been drowned away by the New Year’s hangovers, so the time has come to return to our coverage of Stan Lee’s 2017 Los Angeles Comic Con. The hiatus may have been longer then we hoped, but this spotlight is focused sharply on a talented entry from the world of independent comic books.

In this installment, we continue our adventures into Artist Alley and talk with the creative minds behind “Olive and the Underworld,” Emily Felt and Laura West. This conversation delves into the books creation and development of this story of an orphaned goth girl named Olive and the rollercoaster life she lives, trying to fit in and find a home. As the speed bumps seems to grow, her world and her classmate’s world change in a tragic twist of fate.

I can continue to describe this story, but a better description will come from the creators and not from me, so

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic-World-Fallen-Kingdom

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Universal dropped the first trailer to the highly anticipated sequel to the highly received sequel to the crappy sequel to the not-so-bad-compared-to-the-third sequel to the highly praised adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park and let me tell you…it was hotter than Ian Malcolm with his shirt open!

jurassic_world_fallen_kingdom

Set several years after the events in Jurassic World, here’s what we know so far. Owen and Claire still have crazy sexual tension. Owen still makes uncomfortable sexual jokes, now about the list of guys that Claire may or may not have nailed. Claire has helped form a dinosaur protection group called the Prevention of Extinction of Dinosaurs Organization or P.E.D.O. for short (actually it’s called the Dinosaur Protection Group so Claire is really involved with DP…seriously). The hamster balls still work!! Blue thinks Owen smells…funny. Ian “Chaos Theory” Malcolm is a goddamned stallion with salt and pepper hair. The Carnotaur (I was a dino-nerd so yeah…I knew what it was) gets a hickey from good ol’ T-Rex. Isla Nublar has filed to legally change it’s name to Dante’s Peak or whatever the volcano was named in that stupid Tommy Lee Jones movie. Claire and (fellow DP enthusiast *snicker*) Justice Smith pull a Thelma and Louise and the Ankylosaur is the unofficial cannonball champion of the world! That pretty much sums up the freaking awesome first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom due in theaters June 22nd, 2018. On my ONLY serious note, this trailer does make the departure from most modern trailers and does not oversell. I am truly looking forward to this. Check out the trailer below.

Batman 2018: AKA Shut up Kevin Conroy!

 

Batman-Ninja

(Nicholas Dye/ Staff Writer)

This past week has given us our first look at not one but TWO new Batman animated films that don’t feature the vocal talents of Kevin Conroy! Somewhere, Two-Face’s nipples just got hard! Drawing from all-new material and set in feudal Japan is Batman Ninja. Now I know that sounds like a shitty ploy to get you to buy your kids new toys of Batman as a ninja and Joker, as a ninja, and Harley Quinn as…wait for it…a ninja, but it isn’t. This is a very beautifully detailed anime of Batman as he faces off against the craziest Joker we may have seen since someone thought Jared Leto would be an awesome Joker. Either way it looks 100% badass. The trailer gives us a glimpse at Robin, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, Poison Ivy, Clayface, and Grodd. Yup…you heard me…mother-effing Gorilla Grodd as, what appears to be, a warlord! An english dubbed version is coming with a voice cast that is yet to be revealed but, I for one, cannot wait to miss most of the movie reading subtitles just to hear Wataru Takagi do the creepiest scream as the Joker when he attacks batman with a katana in hand. After this trailer, I dare you not to say shinseina tawagoto Batoman!

I mean…COME ON!! My only question is, how the hell does Batman have a Batwing and a few other tech gadgets in feudal Japan? Ah who cares!?

batman-gotham-by-gaslight-000

As if that wasn’t enough. DC Animation finally brings us an adaptation of one of my favorite Batman Elseworlds titles in Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. Set in Gotham in 1889, Bruce Wayne returns from a trip to Europe and takes up the mantle of the Batman to stop the legendary Jack the Ripper who has come to Gotham. While the translation to animation doesn’t quite convey the gritty style of the comic (originally drawn masterfully by Hellboy’s Mike Mignola), it does look like it follows the story arc beautifully. Finally there will be a viable reason for those damned steam-punk cosplayers to be at SDCC with their damned Dr. Floobert’s Amazing Gizmotron-Doohickity-Pew-Pew Ray Gun or whatever the hell they call it. Either way, check out the trailer below and, look for Gotham by Gaslight on January 23rd 2018 with Batman Ninja later in 2018.

 

Oh,Hell.. It’s Our 5th Conversation…

    It’s not a huge secret that Nowhere California loves to shine a spotlight on the world of independent creativity. Also, if there is a project that sticks out to our team, we will keep tabs on the minds behind the projects and George Wassil is one of those minds.

    George is the creator of the comic book series “Oh, Hell” and Nowhere California first crossed paths with him at the 5th annual Long Beach Comic and Horror Con in 2013. Since that first conversation, we have been lucky enough to talk with George on five different occasions.

    Now, before you ask about the fourth conversation, here is our most recent conversation with George from the Stan Lee’s 2017 Los Angeles Comic Con.

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

3320083-marvel+studios'+avengers++infinity+war+official+trailer.00_02_00_25.still050

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Did the above picture make you pee your pants? No? Then watch trailer below and grab some towels! See, I wanted to come up with one of my clever titles but I was too blown away by the sheer awesomeness to come up with one. The slow burn that began back in 2008 with Iron Man is finally coming to it’s conclusion in 2018 with Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. The Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) has finally made his move to claim the legendary Infinity Stones so that he may reshape the universe to his liking. Standing in his way is the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Nova Corps, and several other heroes…67 according to co-director Joe Russo.

In the trailer, we get to see, Bruce Banner, who apparently fell through the entire Sanctum Sanctorum, standing with Dr. Strange and Tony Stark, Black Widow with blond hair, Winter Soldier with Black Panther, the Hulkbuster Armor, Captain America as Nomad, humany Vision and Scarlet Witch, Peter Parker all tingly, Thor the pirate, Loki the bitch,…um…The Guardians of the Galaxy, uh…War Machine…Falcon…Chuck Norris…Jimmy Hoffa…D.B. Sweeney (look him up)…okay MAYBE all of those don’t appear but it damn sure feels like it. There’s really not much more I can say that does this trailer justice so I will leave you with this final rant:

MAY 4TH MARVEL!!? Your boss owns Star Wars and you guys HAD to go and pick World Star Wars Day to drop your damn amazing movie!? Took some balls Russo Brothers…big ass balls…Anywho…here you go. Remember…towel.

What’s hot on Cable? A teddy…

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Much like the hype for Deadpool, Ryan Reynolds is at it again for Deadpool 2. On the heels of our first look at Zazie Beetz as the infamous Domino, Mr. Reynolds dropped this gem on us early this morning via Twitter.

Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 10.39.36 AM

Immediately on the heels of that Tweet, we got a full body shot of Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers and it did not disappoint. I’m not sure here, but I believe the teddy bear ties the whole ensemble together nicely. You be the judge:

Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 10.39.58 AM

Cable is gen-u-wine mutant badass and I believe that Mr. Brolin has captured said badassery nicely. The only thing left for us to find out is how many bad jokes the “Merc with a Mouth” will get out before Cable blows a hole in him. At any rate, Deadpool 2 is sizing up to be the hottest movie ticket of 2018 and as the news and pics drop we will bring them to you. Okay, just for shits and giggles, here they are side by side. Ladies and gentlemen…Domino and Cable.Screen Shot 2017-08-07 at 11.07.48 AM

The Force Is Strong In The Last Jedi Trailer..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 This week has brought great excitement to the force and the epicenter has been the 2017 Star Wars Celebration, located this year in Orlando. During this event, there has been panels and other happenings, but the moment the universe has been waiting for has happened and we have our first look at “The Last Jedi”

There you have the first trailer for Episode VIII and Christmas can’t get here soon enough. In this two minute clip, the viewers can quickly tell that we are not got to get any type of flash forward and we are witness to the beginning of Rey’s training. It is a given that it is Jedi training, but where will we see the reality of this episode’s title come into play. The rumors are out there and I can dive deep into them, but that type of discussion will be saved for the podcast (You can find the Nowhere California Podcast on your favorite podcast search engines) or on the comment section of this site. The reality and identity of the LAST Jedi will come into view in December, but that is just a microcosm of this trailer.

 The trailer, as a whole, can be dissected and screams for repeat viewing, so the viewer can hope to catch the slightest hint towards the plot of this film. You can look at the vast landscapes and wonder if you are looking at a rock pile or a surprise character. You can listen to every wave of audio and pin point the source of the whispers. It is a tough mission, but it is a mission the internet is more than happy to accept.

 As the current slate of movie releases have shown, it is an awesome time to be a movie fan and the trailers we have received continue to show that fact to be true. Also, DC and MARVEL can have their dick measuring contests when they release trailers, but the current series of Star Wars has shown their still a force to be reckoned with in the box office. December can’t get here quick enough.

Now for a P.S. to my thoughts on the trailer. This poster is obscene in its awesomeness!
