If this ever happened I would have good reason to read my first ever Doc Savage story.

Today we have How Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 Should Have Ended, Y’all!
Gem Seddon and GamesRadar look at 25 Alternate Movie Endings Better Than the Original. While I think that in most cases the original endings are better than the alt versions, the piece does make for interesting reading.
I’ve been a Seth Damoose fan since I first saw his art. There’s a joy to everything Seth draws. I was extremely happy when Seth announced he was taking a few sketch commissions through the mail. I jumped on board with a request for Jack Carter and John Wick. As you can see, Seth came through like a champ.
I really like this alternate poster for The Thing. Not sure who the artist is, but if/when I find out I will update this post.

Rob Hunter and Film School Rejects present 25 Things We Learned from the Kong: Skull Island Commentary. Here are three of my favorites…
5. The image that Bill Randa (John Goodman) hands Senator Willis (Richard Jenkins) was originally of Godzilla, but he fought against that as he felt the film needed to be about Kong from the beginning.
25. The post-credits scene almost didn’t make the cut as several voices felt it didn’t fit, but he argued successfully for its inclusion knowing that audiences would love the tease into the bigger monsterverse to come.
14. The helicopter occupant falling into Kong’s mouth is an homage to the 1933 film version where Kong actually ate people.
Glen Campbell has passed on. From his official website:
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and legendary singer and guitarist, Glen Travis Campbell, at the age of 81, following his long and courageous battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Glen is survived by his wife, Kim Campbell of Nashville, TN; their three children, Cal, Shannon and Ashley; his children from previous marriages, Debby, Kelli, Travis, Kane, and Dillon; ten grandchildren, great- and great-great-grandchildren; sisters Barbara, Sandra, and Jane; and brothers John Wallace “Shorty” and Gerald.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Glen Campbell Memorial Fund at BrightFocus Foundation through the CareLiving.org donation page.
I was and continue to be a Glen Campbell fan. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and fans.
Today we have Francesco Francavilla’s Frankenstein poster. Francesco knocked it out of the part not only with his drawing but also with his coloring and font choices to make this updated alt-poster and throwback to the original era winner!
