INCOGNITO Takes an INCREDIBLES Look at Superheroes

Written by Tara the Mom    Friday, 30 April 2010 07:19   

Graphic novel "Incognito" is headed for the big screen for 20th Century Fox with a story that is somewhat similar to The Incredibles. Just like superheroes had to forgo their superidentities and become regular schlubs in mainstream life, Incognito tells a story of another superhero forced to live normal.

When Zack Overkill testifies against his boss, Black Death, he is stripped of his superpowers and is put into the witness protection program. After finding a concoction that restores his supernatural abilities, Overkill fights crime as a masked vigilante.

Chernin Entertainment (also behind the upcoming Daredevil remake) and Circle of Confusion are producing.

 

Will NIGHTMARE Get VENGEANCE?

Written by Cole the Kid Critic    Friday, 30 April 2010 06:57   

It's the last week of April and the last weekend before the SUMMER MOVIE BLOCKBUSTERS begin. For this last week, we see the remake of Nightmare on Elm Street and Furry Vengeance. Elm Street will probably do better than Furry Vengence simply because Vengeance seems to not have enough appeal for parents to bring their kids. Well, you can always save that ticket for next week when Iron Man 2 comes out.
