The Blot’s never read the Cowboys & Aliens graphic novel, I’m nevertheless very excited for the upcoming live action movie adaptation if for no other reason than the film’s director and cast. The Cowboys & Aliens film is being directed by Jon Favreau and features a veritable who’s who of The Blot’s favorite actors, including Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Paul Dano, Keith Carradine and Walton Goggins. Cowboys & Aliens is shaping up to be the next big comic book based summer blockbuster!
Then again, it’s going to have some really stiff competition for that title next summer from a number of more “mainstream” comic book franchises. While Cowboys & Aliens is not scheduled for release until sometime during summer 2011, its very first trailer will be unveiled by Universal Studios tomorrow. So keep your eyes peeled on The Blot Says… tomorrow for the new Cowboys & Aliens trailer!

While it doesn’t look like there will be any more production runs of Abe Lincoln Jr.’s Globulon resin figure, Abe’s got more than a few customs in the works including this awesome Hawaiian Pizza custom colorway. Inspired by the Hawaii colorway of vintage Japanese Kaiju toys, Abe has taken all the garish beauty of these classic toys and bastardized them into a hamfisted tribute to the old masters of toy painting.
The Bronze Edition Tuttz will be making their debut this Saturday, November 20th at Designer Con. Argonaut Resins will only be making 6 metallic bronze cats, which will be sold exclusively at Dragatomi’s DCon booth #202. This wave will include five standard Bronze Tuttz and one special metallic bronze clear tint chase.
Each Dragatomi x Argonaut Resins Designer Con Exclusive Bronze Tuttz resin figure is signed and numbered by END, includes a signed Certificates of Authenticity and a mini story card, and comes packaged in a numbered custom box.
We’re just a few days away from the world premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, the second to last Harry Potter film ever. Now that The Blot’s read the Harry Potter series I’m pretty excited to see this film, but I’ve still got to watch the first six movies first. At least I’ve got the entire Thanksgiving holiday to catch up.
I thought this Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 portrait character movie poster set was particularly effective because of how expressive the faces are, especially when offset against the one sheet’s black background. It really sets the ominous feeling of this particular book, especially the book’s first half. I know some fans are a little worried Part 1 will be a little slow, but condensing all that story to just 2 hours will make that near impossible (or at least I hope it does).
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 debuts in theaters this Friday, November 19th.
