NECA Announces Alien Space Jockey Replica

"Bones are bent outward, like he exploded from inside..."

Earlier today, NECA posted a few teaser images to their official Twitter account of a Alien Space Jockey 7″ Scale Diorama Collectible. Now, they have updated their official site with new images and info of the very impressive piece, which is sure to be a must own for fans of this stellar NECA series.

Check it out...

From NECA:

As seen in the 1979 horror classic Alien, this stunningly detailed replica of the Fossilized Space Jockey is perfect as a diorama element and a striking display piece on its own!

It’s perfectly in scale with our line of 7” figures, which means that it’s appropriately massive: two feet long, over 18” tall, and the circular base is 18” in diameter! The Fossilized Space Jockey is made of hand-painted foam rubber and latex with all the details you see in the movie.

Comes packaged in a sturdy reinforced corrugated box. No retail packaging.

A truly unique, and amazing, addition to any collection, NECA will be releasing the Alien Space Jockey 7″ Scale Diorama Collectible this coming December.

No price is available at the time of this writing.

Oh, and if you're wondering about that Lambert figure seen in the photos above, NECA will be releasing her early in 2017 as part of Aliens Series 11.

Terminally Ill Star Wars Fan Granted Last Wish

Neil Hanvey, a terminally ill Star Wars fan admitted to St Michael's Hospice back in April, was granted his dying wish - to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story ahead of its December release.

Similar to last year's #ForceForDaniel social media campaign, which saw fans across the globe unite in an effort to allow terminally ill Daniel Fleetwood the opportunity to view The Force Awakens before its release last December, fans came together to successfully fulfill Mr. Hanvey's #RogueOneWish.

Star Wars star Mark Hamill helped raise awareness of the social media campaign, along with several other media outlets like Metro.   On August 22 2016, St Michael's Hospice posted the update to their Facebook page:
"On behalf of Neil Hanvey, his wife Andrea and all his family, we want to thank everyone who supported the #RogueOneWish campaign. The director of Rogue One, Gareth Edwards did all he could to make Saturday a very special day for Neil. Neil, his family and everyone at St Michael's Hospice would like to say thank you to Disney, Lucasfilm and especially Gareth Edwards. 
The following day, the page was updated regarding the tragic passing of Mr. Hanvey.

"A message from Neil Hanvey's wife, Andrea. 'On behalf of all our family we would like to thank everyone who has pssed on their condolences following Neil's death last night. We would also like to thank the tens of thousands of people who supported the #RogueOneWish campaign. All the messages of love during the past week have given us real comfort during a very difficult time. We would also like to thank everyone at St Michael's Hospice, especially Amy Duncan, without who #RogueOneWish would not have happened. All donations at Neil's funeral will go to the Hospice's Family Support team and will be used to fund work with children and young people. An online donation page will be set-up shortly."
The Infinite Earths wish to convey our deepest sympathies to Neil's friends and family.

All-New Arrow Promo Hits Its Mark

We've already seen a new promo for Season 3 of The Flash and now DC Entertainment has done the same thing for Arrow, giving fans a brief glimpse at what's to come in the show's fifth season.

Check out the all-new promo posted below...

Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow. 

Starring Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Paul Blackthorne, Echo Kellum, John Barrowman, Rick Gonzalez, Josh Segarra, Madison McLaughlin and Chad L. Coleman, Arrow returns for Season 5 on Wednesday, October 5th at 8pm.

Doug Liman To Direct Justice League Dark

Director Doug Liman, who directed the Tom Cruise sci-fi flick Edge Of Tomorrow, has signed on to direct the live-action Justice League Dark movie for Warner Bros. Studios. Sources claim that Liman has left the X-Men spinoff Gambit at 20th Century Fox following a mutual split between the director and studio.

Scott Rudin is producing Justice League Dark and Michael Gilio is writing the script.

While plot details are being kept under wraps, the film will center around a dark Justice League team consisting of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. The movie will play a major part in the ever growing DC Expanded Universe.

Pacific Rim helmer Guillermo Del Toro was originally attached to direct the film, but left due to being sidetracked by other projects. Rudin came on board as producer last year.

A release date has yet to be set for the movie, however a Justice League Dark animated feature is set for release this coming October and will feature the voice talent of Matt Ryan, who portrayed John Constantine in the short-lived series over at NBC, and made a cameo appearance on Arrow last season.

The Monolith Is Heading To The Big Screen

Lionsgate is developing an adaptation of The Monolith.

Based off the graphic novel series by Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti, The Monolith centers on Alice Cohen, an ex-junkie who inherits a house in Brooklyn from her deceased grandmother. She discovers a diary there that reveals the creation of a monster in the 1930s set on revenge for the slaying of a good man. Twelve issues were published by DC Comics between 2004 and 2005.

The upcoming film adaption will be a contemporary retelling of the classic Golem legend, which centers on an artificial creature created through the use of magic.

Dave Wilson, creative director on Tim Miller's Deadpool, is attached to direct and will serve as his big screen directorial debut. Prior to this, Wilson worked on a slew of video games including Mass Effect 2 and Star Wars: The Old Republic. He was also involved with Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Erwin Stoff will produce the film while Barnett Brettler is penning the script based off the comics.

Naian Gonzalez Norvind Joins Gotham As Alice

The Mad Hatter is coming to Gotham next month - and he's bringing his sister along.

Mexican actress Naian Gonzalez Norvind has joined the cast of the gritty DC Entertainment prequel in the recurring role of Alice Tetch, the younger sister of Benedict Samuel's Jarvis Tetch - also known as The Mad Hatter.

Set to debut in the third episode of Season 3, Alice was born with a powerful ability that she cannot control — an ability her brother believes is a gift, but that she has always seen as a curse. As such, she has spent much of her life alone, running from her brother — who will stop at nothing to be reunited in hopes of unleashing her gift on the world.

Norvind has appeared on Everybody’s Got Somebody…Not Me and Blue Bloods and will next be seen in Rebel In the Rye alongside Nicholas Hoult and Kevin Spacey.

Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, David Mazouz, Sean Pertwee, Chris Chalk, Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, Michael Chiklis, Maggie Geha, Benedict Samuel and  Naian Gonzalez Norvind, Gotham returns for its third season on Monday, September 19th at 8pm.
