Check Out A Raft Of Promotional Gems For Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE

Without question, Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange will be priority for anyone following the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I'll be certain to catch it myself having had the rarest of rare opportunities to meet TWO Marvel movie co-stars earlier this year - I couldn't name it at publicly the time, but the jig is pretty much up and if you can't recognize Zara Phythian and Katrina Durden in any of the trailers and clips now swirling online, I'd say an opthalmologist is in order.

Raman Hui's MONSTER HUNT 2 Now Filming

On its face, Raman Hui's 18th century short story adaptation, Monster Hunt, may seem like a kids' movie not worth all the hype. That said, if that's the basis for your abstinence from seeing it either this year or last year, you couldn't be more wrong and its status as China's highest grossing film of all time notwithstanding, the film tells one of the most heartfelt, exciting and compelling stories you'll ever see on screen and with fun action sequences to boot as well from a script by Hui and co-scribe Alan Yuen.

Well Go USA To Release LEGEND OF BRUCE LEE: VOL.1 On DVD This November

I remember first seeing the trailer to the CCTV-1 broadcast of the Shannon Lee produced series, The Legend Of Bruce Lee a bit less than a decade ago. Having already been a fan of director Rob Cohen's Hollywood treatment, I wasn't too impressed and I guess because it felt a bit like excess for there to be another pseudo-fictional telling of the life and legend of the Jeet Kune Do founder and martial arts film star.

Now available on DVD and VoD is director Sand Sharks and Road Wars helmer Mark Atkins's latest offering from The Asylum, Planet Of The Sharks. The film premiered on Syfy during Sharknado week and became a top-rated original. Personally I don't do shark movies but having seen my fair share, I respect the fan fervor quite a bit.

The First Official LOGAN Trailer Hails A Timeless Ballad Of Gallantry

I'm willing to bet there's already a consensus with Marvel fans on how much many will miss actor Hugh Jackman. There's no question that his is a portrayal of iconic comic book superhero, Logan Howlett (a.k.a. Wolverine) is one for the history books with a performance as palpable and gripping as one could ask for in an actor, and with a character who notably shares a backstory bigger than most of his fellow X-Men.
