Gotham City TV Series


According to a story written on Movie Pilot the new Gotham TV series will not be about a young James Gordon. This is great news for DC and Batman fans alike. It was announced earlier last year that DC would be working on a TV series set in Gotham City and might cover the early police years of James Gordon. Not too many people were excited about this because, lets be honest, James Gordon isn’t exactly the most exciting character in the Batman universe.

Personally I think a gritty Batman TV series that actually features Batman (costume and all) and that introduces both villains and heroes would be awesome. However, DC feels that taking the Smallville approach to this series would be best. Fox chairman Kevin Reilly talked a bit about what to expect in this new TV series which actually sounds a lot more interesting than I gave it credit for.

This is all of the classic Batman characters,” Reilly said during the panel. “It follows the arc of how they all became what they were. I’ve read the script its really good. It’s going to be this operatic soap that has a slightly larger-than-life quality.

Apparently this is going to include The Joker, The Riddler, Catwoman, Penguin and even Batman himself. The jury is still out on whether this will be a recipe for success or not. There are a lot of things that have to come together for this show to really take off and the question remains, where does this fit in with the up coming movies? Will this show tie in somehow or is this a stand alone show meant for it’s own universe? There are still a lot of unanswered questions, but I for one am glad that they decided not to take a boring character and build an entire show around him.

As always we want to know your thoughts on this? Does this sound like a show you will want to watch now that we know it’s NOT going to be about James Gordon’s police career? Leave us your thoughts in a comment below or on our Facebook page.

From Dusk Till Dawn Reboot (Video)

I’m sure most of you remember the 90’s cult classic vampire flick From Dusk Till Dawn by Mr. Robert Rodriguez. If you for some reason you have not seen that movie, I highly recommend that you go check it out especially after reading this post. I for one love that movie from the casting, to the story, and especially Salma Hayek *Drool*. Anyways, I’m not here to reminisce about the 1996 movie but instead I’m here to talk about the upcoming reboot to the movie.

Now there were a couple sequels made after the first one but I personally have never seen any of them. The original was an awesome movie and I think it must have been hard to connect two sequels to it. You might know what I’m talking about if you’ve seen the first one and how it ended. However, the most surprising detail about this reboot is that it is actually being made into a TV series. They are recasting all of the characters from the original movie and taking it to the small screen. At first I was a little worried about this because I’m not exactly sure how they could stretch this thing out into and entire TV series unless they did a prequel, but then there wouldn’t be any vampires in it.

The good news though, is that Robert Rodriguez himself green lit this project and will actually be involved in the making of it. As of now we know that D.J. Cotrona will play Seth Gecko (George Clooney’s character) and Zane Holtz will play his brother Richie Gecko (Quintin Tarantino’s character). These two don’t really look anything like their original counterparts but I think their dynamic on screen will be what determines if this show is going to be good or bad. Also they have gotten Eiza Gonzalez to play the sexy stripper vampire, but I’m sorry to say that she is no Salma Hyek.

From Dusk Til Dawn The Series will premier March 11th on El Rey Network. I can’t say I’ve ever watched anything on El Ray Network, but I guess I have a reason to check it out now. As always we want to know your thoughts on this? Does this sound like a show you will want to watch? Check out the trailer below and leave us a comment on here or on our Facebook page. Enjoy!
