I’ll be in Springfield, Mass. for the next several days getting our Six Flags New England theme park operations up and running for the season opener next Saturday, but thanks to the magic of scheduled posting The MAD Blog will continue to grind on.
I mentioned a few posts ago that this summer is going to be comic book geek nirvana at the movie theater. In multiplexes this spring and summer: The Dark Knight, The Incredible Hulk, Hellboy 2, Iron Man, Speed Racer and The X-Files 2 (okay, those last two are not strictly comic book movies, but close enough). Most of these look pretty impressive. I’m hoping I get to do the parody of at least one of these for MAD.
My friend and fellow caricaturist Jim Batts sent me this YouTube video that frankly puts a lot of the big budget comic book films I’ve seen to shame. It’s five minutes long but it’s worth the time;http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKe7pnwrmsA
I like the Hulk better on that clip than I do on the trailer that’s circulating on the internet right now! I couldn’t find any info on where this came from, but it’s terrific. Now I can’t wait for some of these movies to get released!
