A happy Tuesday to you Melters!  As you know I have started my weekly wrestling recap show “Kayfabe Korner” live every Monday, as a result these “Heads Up” postings will be occurring on Tuesdays from now on.  Lets get to the nitty gritty shall we?

Today DC Films uploaded some very interesting content to their Facebook page today.  As we all know Batman Vs. Superman, Wonder Woman, and the Aquaman movies are all setting up for a two part Justice League movie in the next few years.  While we know who will play each of the characters we still don’t have a good idea of the looks for Aquaman, Cyborg, and the Flash.  Today us fans got a peek at what the future holds for the DC film universe when the film studio uploaded concept art showing the initial lineup for the upcoming “The Dawn of The Justice League”.  While we still don’t know all that much about what the movie will be about (we are still a long ways away from it’s release date) its interesting to see what could be the final look for the League.  I personally do NOT have high hopes for the DC universe in terms of its cinema performances but time will tell as they say…

 

JJ Abrams dropped a teaser trailer for an upcoming film called “10 Cloverfield Lane” which is apparently supposed to be a follow up to his Found-Footage disaster movie “Cloverfield”.  I guess the original Cloverfield didn’t do as well as the studio would have hoped but I personally LOVED the movie and consider it one of my favorites.  I love me a good disaster flick especially if giant monsters are involved.  Throwing in the “found footage” motif only made it more intense and instilled a sense of panic in the audience.  From what I’ve seen from the trailer, the movie focuses on a family (lead by John Goodman which is AWESOME) that lives in an underground bomb shelter and their struggle to survive after an unnamed disaster happened above ground.  People are mostly assuming this movie will take place in the same universe as the original Cloverfield disaster but this time it focuses on one family and is not “found footage” style.  I love (almost) everything JJ Abrams puts out and this trailer has filled me with a lot of hope for this project.

So this is good news for all my fellow lazy comic enthusiasts.  While digital comics are available on most handheld devices, there isn’t anything quite like the feeling of owning a physical copy of your favorite book.  Too lazy to come to Meltdown?  Well have no fear because WE ARE COMING TO YOU!  Starting tomorrow, every Wednesday, Meltdown Comics will start delivering your favorite comics to your door!  For just a small 5$ delivery fee you can pick as many items in the store as you want and we will bring them right to your door!  Call into Meltdown tomorrow for details.  We will be delivering in the areas from Beverly Hills to Echo Park, plus the Hollywood Hills to Mid City LA.   The things we do for you people…

The Resident Evil: 0 HD remaster came out today available for download.  This is one of the better Resident Evil games before Capcom forgot the “horror” part of “survival horror” in their video games.  While the original Resident Evil HD Remake is far superior in my opinion this is another fun game to pick up if you feel nostalgic about being scared by zombie dogs jumping through windows.  Pick this up if you are feeling bored on a lazy rainy day (like today) but if you do make sure you get the original Resident Evil HD as well.

Straight_Outta_Compton_poster

Today, arguably one of the best films of 2015, Straight Outta Compton finally drops on DVD and Blu ray as well as most online streaming sites.  While the Academy felt this movie wasn’t worth their time doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have this incredible movie in your library.  The movie follows the rise and eventual fall of one of the most iconic music groups in history, N.W.A.  If you haven’t already seen this movie (a lot of people already did) then you should not miss this classic.  Its the highest grossing music biopic of all time, you do the math.
