Capitain America #movie

leave a comment »

The first action figure I remember getting was Captain America, with a little plastic shield. I also had The Avengers comic books. Captain America was symbolic of America for me, just like Superman. I was very young and impressionable.

Now Marvel is releasing The First Avenger: Captain America, they plan to follow it up in May 2012 with The Avengers movie, but as I write this I’m not sure of the exact release date.

As always I read far more in 2010 than I blogged about, and most of the books I did blog about were treasures. I hope I inspired you to read at least one of them. And you have certainly noticed that I have added them all to the bookstore to make it easier for you to find out more about them.

Thor the #Movie

leave a comment »

One of my first real American comics was Thor, I really liked it. Sadly it remained at this comic, I never bought any others. I can only vaguely remember a character with wild blond hair and a Norse helmet. I liked Thor and if I really search hard I should be able to find it somewhere.

Marvel releasing Thor the movie on May 19th 2011.

Roald Dahl’s Classic #books # movie

leave a comment »

Wes Anderson is bringing an animated adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s 1970’s book Fantastic Mr. Fox to life on the silver screen. It’ll be probably released on December 3rd in the Netherlands and November 6th in the US.

I think I should buy my God daughter this book for Christmas.

Making a Movie based on a Video Game

leave a comment »

On June 16th in the US and July 2nd in the Netherlands Disney will release Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. I liked the original game Prince of PersiaIMDB released in 1989, although I never played any of the other games. I can’t remember if my friend had it on NES or SNES, but in my mind I played it on the Commodore 64. Must be my imagination as it isn’t possible according to the list on Wikipedia.

I wonder how the film turns out…

Wolverine released on Queensday

with one comment

They are releasing X-Men Origins: Wolverine April 30th, on Queensday? With the nice weather we’ve been having in the last years there is little point to pick that as the release date. It’s competing with one of the biggest street parties of the year. Then again it surprises me that cinemas are open on Queensday anyway.

I’m sure I’ll see the movie at some point, but certainly not on Queensday.

According to License! Hasbo is making the toys and Sega will be making the game, but they sold the rights for Halloween costumes to Disguise. I didn’t even think about Halloween, which is probably why I’m not in Licensing.

Had I mentioned that Marvel turned 70 this year?
