The big winner at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con was without a doubt Warner Bros, dishing out a ton of amazing trailers and news, including a sneak peek at Wonder Woman 1984, a surprise trailer for Shazam!, a look ahead at their TV programs including a look at the DC streaming service, and killer trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald; a contender for best trailer of the show in my opinion. But the clear audience winner was the trailer for Aquaman. At the time of the start of this writing, a day after the trailer debuted, it’s still the number one trending video on youtube. The film is due this December and has only just started its marketing campaign, causing a lot of hype and anticipation around the film. Now that the trailer has surfaced (sorry), let’s talk about it and why it was actually a bit of a letdown.
The film industry is responsible for how the public perceives an array of issues, with people looking to movies for a sense of personal representation. Theatres are commonly littered with films centered around storylines that are lived out by young adult actors; thus, media and movies alike cater primarily to a more mature demographic. Such casting is not limited by genre – one can watch romance, … Continue reading Why ‘Eighth Grade’ Was the Movie We Needed – ScreenHub Entertainment
You may not know who Julian Glover is off hand but there’s a good chance you’ve seen something with him in it. The 83-year-old English actor has had an illustrious career, co-starring in such films as The Empire Strikes Back, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Troy, Dr. Who, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, co-starred as the villain in 007 For Your Eyes Only and most recently, was seen quite a bit in the smash hit HBO show, Game of Thrones. Talk about a portfolio. I got front row seats to hear the thespian talk about his craft, his experiences, influences and more at Montreal Comiccon.
A surprise treat awaited fans at the Xbox corner at this year’s Montreal Comiccon and that was a hands-on demo for the upcoming game from Square Enix/Crystal Dynamic, Shadow of the Tomb Raider. I got to play the game for around thirty minutes and got a first-hand reaction to combat, puzzles and the tone of the latest entry in the franchise.
Part of the fun of any Comiccon is taking in all the sights and sounds and that includes the plethora of local artists who set up shop to show off their impressive artwork inspired by the films, shows and comics they’ve consumed over the years. One such artist is local boy Chris Moore, who specializes in drawing realistic and comic book inspired portraits of superheroes. While at Comiccon, Chris was kind enough to share his time with me to give me an interview about how he got started, what inspired him and where he’s going.

Sony had a heavy presence at this year’s Montreal Comiccon and nothing was as anticipated as the upcoming Marvel’s Spider-Man game from Insomniac Games. The studio most recently worked on Sunset Overdrive on the Xbox and now they’re looking to bring your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man to the PlayStation this September.
The onset of 2018 brought its own set of disruptions that upset society’s normally peaceful façade. With such disorder came a surge of change that has yet to show any signs of slowing. Among these controversial conversations were political talks centred around a push for equality of all kinds – equality for racial minorities, for women, for the LGBT+ community. While none of these topics have emerged as novelty ideas, previously unfamiliar to humanity, their importance has been widely disregarded throughout history by people in positions of power. Politicians, the media, and the big businesses alike have turned a blind eye to the most marginalized groups in society; yet, as this new era dawns, many are determined to give prominence to those whose lives are too often neglected.
Ridley Scott’s Alien prequels have attracted much controversy. Some have praised them as fresh and innovative, while others have criticized them as unrecognizable from the original classic. Longtime fans have nitpicked both Prometheus and Covenant, but nitpicks are often symptomatic of a much larger issue. The biggest complaint fans had with Prometheus and Alien: Covenant wasn’t character development, plot holes, or even the series moving away from the Alien itself. It was the gradual stripping away of the unknown.
With the recent announcements of the 5 Game of Thrones prequels that are in development, there has been a lot of speculation as to what they could be. As you can see in one of my previous posts on the possibilities, it is quite likely that we will see a lot of Targaryen history come to light, including the First Blackfyre Rebellion. In this post, I will … Continue reading The First Blackfyre Rebellion Explained – ScreenHub Entertainment
The Halo franchise is one of the most popular video game series ever made. It’s single-handedly responsible for launching the original Xbox and has since gone on to have five sequels, including the upcoming Halo Infinite, spinoff games like Halo Wars and Halo Reach. While gamers mainly play a Halo game for its competitive and game-changing multiplayer modes, for many its the story that keeps drawing them in. That’s part of the reason why the live action series from Showtime is a great idea. Continue reading “Why A ‘Halo’ Live Action TV Show Is A Great Idea – ScreenHub Entertainment”
