A Dark Phoenix Returns..

In the comic book work, the term is commonly known as retcon and the movie going public, we are treated to the repeated trend of reboots. Now, these world cross paths again and the world will receive another retelling of the Dark Phoenix saga, as the trailer for next year’s “X-Men:Dark Phoenix” has been released.

Now, for anyone new to this world, the first time this story arch hit the big screen was in the 2006 movie “X-Men:The Last Stand” In “The Last Stand” the Dark Phoenix was a part of a larger story that revolved around the possible mutant cure, but some of the more hardcore X-Men followers knew this was a type of story that could hold its own in a full feature film.

After watching the trailer, it is easy to see that this story line stands front and center in all of its glory. This movie continues the evolution of the current X-Men era with a harsher edge, as loyalties are in question and, in true blockbuster movie form, humanity is threatened.

As with recent high profiled releases, this film had its original release date changed and reshoots were ordered by the studio. The question could be asked about if this will be an issue with the public view and I will not fall into that debate. This film will probably close the X-Men book for 20th Century Fox, before these mutants fall into the Disney fold and we can only hope this last stand will be one to remember.

X-Men:Dark Phoenix Will Rise Into Theaters Feb.14,2019

Inside The Artist’s Mind..

 In the past our convention coverage, our focus would stay on the art of the comic book pages and the creative minds that put pen to page. In this installment of our adventures at the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, we are leaving the pages and moving to the wall, so we can talk with artist Michael Matsumoto.

 Michael is an illustrator and a conceptual artist that delves deep into pop culture for inspiration. During his continuing elevation in the art world, Michael has developed a following and has picked up freelance work in the form of commissioned pieces. Also, during this time, he has found a place in the convention circuit and this is where we crossed paths.

I Am GROOT! (Translation: NEW GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL.2 TRAILER!)

The world has been waiting for more of the Guardians, in October we were delivered a teaser shot of MARVEL’s space warriors and we wanted a longer drink. Today, the team from “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2” helped relieve any lingering Thanksgiving hangovers and gave the masses a larger dose of Groot.

I think I could stay away from the death button, but I could not avoid the reply button on this trailer. MARVEL seems to have a knack to build a smaller franchise into a monstrous movie event, can you think of your love for Iron Man before the first movie? Anyways, the MARVEL machine has made the right moves when it comes to the guardians’ world and this next volume has the makings to become another box office force to be reckoned with.

In case you need the reminder, Vol.2 of the Guardians is unleashed in theaters May 5,2017!

Tim Miller Departs From DEADPOOL 2..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

As in most Hollywood successes, a speed bump is bound to creep up and everyone’s favorite merc with the mouth has ran head first into a hard bump. Tim Miller, the director of the original blockbuster DEADPOOL, has left the production of DEADPOOL 2 over creative differences.

After the news broke, the rumors started to flood the internet and the truth could be stranger than fiction, but a rift between Miller and Ryan Reynolds seems to lead the charge. The studio has been quick to keep the news in a positive light, as they have already announced their next project with Miller. Fox has released information that Miller will begin work on the adaptation of Daniel Suarez’s science fiction novel, Influx.

In Hollywood creative differences happen as often as rehab stints, but they can hopefully end the same way. I am a massive fan of DEADPOOL and the extended world the movie unleashed, so any static could bring upon something amazing and very little property damage.

Now, due to this issue, the release date for DEADPOOL 2 is up in the air.

Last Call for Logan

logan-wolverine-and-x-23

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer) I believe in perfect moments. Snippets of events that tie together to paint a masterpiece. For me, it’s the events that led to me meeting my wife. From the smell in the air to the way a stoplight changes. The song on the radio or the recollection of a dumb joke that helped break the ice. They are magical and remind us that, sometimes, the universe lines up just right. That is absolutely prevalent in the first trailer for Logan, the final Wolverine story with Hugh Jackman. See, I believe there was a reason that Dougray Scott was tied to Mission Impossible 2 and could’t take the role of Wolverine so it passed to an unknown Jackman. I believe that Trent Reznor sat down in 1995 and wrote “Hurt” specifically for Johnny Cash without ever knowing it until he heard The Man in Black sing it. Little moments that make a huge masterpiece. It paints a picture of a future where Logan is broken and old. A future where he is haunted by ghosts and regrets. A future where he wants to be anywhere but in his own skin. No mutants. Nothing and no one to fight or fight for. Like life itself, suddenly Hope appears. A Hope that will bring a new future for mutants. A Hope that is certainly worth fighting for and dying for. You may be looking at these sentences with confusion. Why the capital ‘H’? To that, I simply leave you with this trailer…and a wink.

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

It has been a magical 12 days and as the yearly War on Christmas truce goes into effect, Deadpool has delivered a package that he want to show the world. Also, the Merc with the Mouth has a new trailer for the movie goers..

First, here is the clean “Green Band” trailer..

Now, it is time to take Deadpool’s advice and enjoy the majesty that is the “Red Band” trailer..

If that isn’t an uncanny and magnificent finale for the 12 days of Deadpool, then I don’t know what could be. This trailer shows the hardcore edge and spirit of the comics will not be lost in the translation to the big screen. This movie will be the swift kick to superhero genre’s balls and the aftermath will be felt for a long time.

I don’t know your plans for February 12, 2016, but my plans are set and I’ll be seeing this movie multiple times.

DEADPOOL: It’s Trailer Eve, Make Sure You Leave Some Chimichangas Out..

‘Twas the night before the trailer and all through the internet, not a creature was stirring but a Merc with a mouth. The time has finally arrived and we are at the eve of the new Deadpool trailer.

Today is the 11th day of the marvelous 12 days of Deadpool and our day started with a ghost of Deadpool past..

Wolverine, Deadpool’s fellow WEAPON X survivor, decided to commandeer the festivities and treat us to this special image. As everyone remembers, the last time we saw these two together was in the conclusion of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the Merc with the Mouth didn’t exactly have a mouth. It’s nice to see this twosome together under better terms.

Now for the main attraction of the 11th day of the 12 days of Deadpool and an appetizer for tomorrow’s new Deadpool trailer..

The excitement is reaching its peak, we received a new TV spot and some truth behind the Easter egg we discovered from Day 7 (Hopefully, this isn’t the last time we’ll see Wolverine), but the main event is only a few hours away.

Ignore your loved ones and stay locked in, as we will hit the final day of the 12 days of Deadpool. Christmas Day will bring onto the world a brand spanking new Deadpool trailer!!

DEADPOOL: Die Hard Is His Favorite, Feel Good Christmas Movie..

It’s the night before Trailer’s Eve and there is so much to discuss, from the 10th entry in the matronly 12 days of Deadpool to 2 new television spots and one spot featuring brand new footage from this soon to be classic movie.

As with the past 9 days, we begin with the newest entry of the 12 days of Deadpool and today’s installment is another Merc with the Mouth take on a holiday classic, the relaxing burning yule log.

In the most traditional hands, it’s as simple as an actual burning fire in a fireplace and in other hands, it’s a video loop from a discount DVD. This classic has seen many forms, but here is the Deadpool’s “Pool Log”..

Now, as you relax with you “Pool Log”, here is the newest television spot and you will quick see a few new moments from the movie…

This might have been a short clip, but you get a colossal amount. We get a glimpse at the story and what bring Wade Wilson to the superhero party.

The next clip is quick, but very important. This is a special spot for ESPN’s NBA coverage on Christmas Day, but we learn that we will be getting a special look at Deadpool. We can only imagine that this will be the debut of the new “clean” trailer. Also, Deadpool isn’t alone in this clip and we get a special visit from Weasel.

There you have it, this was a very busy 10th day for this Deadpool event. We are in the final 2 days and tomorrow will bring the surprises of “Trailer Eve”. Since “Trailer Eve” is all we know, watch out and be ready for anything!
