Super is coming April 1st to Theatres

He’s not really a superhero, but he can beat your ass in with a hammer, or possibly a wrench. Plus, he’s got Ellen Page for a sidekick. She’s spunky. Check out the first poster for James Gunn’s “Super”. Now I hadn’t heard of this movie until today but I may have to check it out. It looks like a crazy version of Kick Ass but I won’t let that deter me.

Starring Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Gregg Henry, Michael Rooker, Andre Royo, Sean Gunn, Stephen Blackehart and directed by James Gun. Check out the trailer for it below:

Spider-Man’s First Appearance Sells for $1.1 Million

A copy of Spider-Man’s first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15 with a rating of 9.6 sold Tuesday to the tune of $1.1 million. That ranks it’s sale as the second highest amount for a comic sale on record. I gotta say, it must be nice to have that kind of money to invest in a comic. I’ll settle for just reading a reprint and having that on my shelf.

Just one year after selling the comic book with the first appearance of Superman for $1.5 million, the people at ComicConnect.com have done it again, this time with the world’s most famous webhead.

Spider-Man’s first appearance in “Amazing Fantasy” #15 was sold to an anonymous buyer on Tuesday to the tune of $1.1 million. In a press release, ComicConnect.com – an online collectibles marketplace – ranked it as the world’s second most valuable comic book, after the aforementioned “Action Comics” #1, with Superman.

The auction site had previously sold “Detective Comics” #27, where Batman first appeared, for $1.0755 million back in February of 2010. Before last year, sought-after comics like this would never sell for seven figures.

Stephen Fishler, the CEO of ComicConnect.com, said that this sale of “Amazing Fantasy” #15 is a record for the Silver Age of comics from the late 1950s and early 1960s. “The sale of this book crushed all previous records. Up until today’s $1.1 million sale, the record sales price of a comic book from this era was $250,000.”

Fishler first acquired the book 25 years ago, and sold it for $2,500. He later acquired and sold it again for $140,000 in 2000. Fishler also created a widely-accepted grading scale in the years since (driving the prices of highly graded comics skyward), and this book is ranked as a 9.6 out of 10.

“The buyer of this amazing comic wanted to own the very best,” said ComicConnect.com partner Vincent Zuzolo. “The Amazing Fantasy #15 – 9.6 is the definition of the very best.”

Renewal Hopes for Fringe and Human Target

Fringe has been one of my favorite shows since it started almost three years ago. Everyone, including myself, has been worried that it’s move to Friday would be the death of the show. Rating have been overall pretty good but not great so the fear of it being canceled has been high. After a couple weeks of holding on to ratings the past two weeks have dipped slightly.

Human Target has been moved all over the schedule this year with back-to-back episodes airing on two separate occasions. Ratings have been up and down as a result. Looking at the ratings per episode on Wikipedia, some episodes from this year were near last season’s first few.

Check out what EW found out from Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly below:

How does Fox feel about Fringe’s performance on Friday so far?

Quite enthusiastic.

“I’m so psyched about it,” says Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly. “It does go to show you the loyalty of the genre audience, when you get the right show. I’m so grateful to that audience, I’d like to shake their hands. We have a lot of passion for that show here.”

Now, this interview was just before last Friday’s second-in-row dip, but most other shows also fell that night and one rating does not a reputation make. As for Human Target ….

“We have some decisions to make about that,” Reilly says, “and Lie to Me as well. These shows are not being rejected. They’re doing a consistent and solid number. There are networks that would be happy to take those shows. We have to look at our shelf space.”

Translation: We’re going to decide about Human Target and Lie after we see our pilots for next fall. But keep in mind, Fox only programs two hours a night, so that’s a pretty crowded shelf….
