We featured The Sidekick as one of the five panels that should not be missed at this year’s Comic-Con, but were we right? The Sidekick follows super hero sidekick Max McCabe on a journey of self discovery after his disastrous final mission with Captain Wonder (played by a wonderfully dry Ron Livingston). Created as a way to cope with turning forty, actor-writer Rob Benedict successfully assembled a team of super-talented friends to help out with the film including Martin Starr, Lizzy Caplan, Richard Speight Jr., Jordan Peele, Jason Ritter, and Josh Meyers.
Abe Lincoln has been one of my favorite historical figures since I was a little kid. There is something mythical about that giant man and all that he accomplished. I would venture to say that Abraham Lincoln is quite possibly one of the most respected Americans of all time. After all “honest Abe” was the good natured emancipator who did his damnedest to keep America unified during an incredibly brutal and bloody Civil War. Abe’s assassination by the “coward John Wilkes Booth” made the legendary man into a tragic hero that stood for all things American. It seems strange to me that we haven’t had more movies about him. From the incredible duo of Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov comes Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. With a talented cast that includes Benjamin Walker (Abe), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Mary Todd), and our favorite pilot friend Alan Tudyk (Stephen Douglas), we couldn’t be more excited for this film. Also… The Johnny Cash music in the trailer made me get some pretty intense nerd-bumps. Enjoy!
