Posted in Box Office, Film on 05/29/2012 by sharonwong

Though not July 4th but Memorial Day weekend, Will Smith rejoined the summer movie season with a sequel ten years in the making.  Agents J (Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones and Josh Brolin), the men in Men in Black III, fought the aliens to win against The Avengers‘ Hulk, Iron Man, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Thor and Captain America.  The superheroes fell to the fellow Earth-saving duo yet they continued to dominate over second weekenders #3 Battleship ($11.05 million) and #4 The Dictator ($9.276 million), and the just released Chernobyl Diaries in the top five of the weekend box office.

As we stated in our interview with Allen J. Clements, there were two things that caught our eyes at the 2012 Boston Comic Con.  The first was The Fictory with the second being (drum roll, please) comic book creator Joe DellaGatta.  You might want to remember his name because we think you are going to hear it a lot over the next couple years.  We spoke with the native New Englander about his comic The Diver (formerly known as The Holy Diver) and job at video game company, 38 Studios.  Sit back, pop open a PBR and enjoy our chat with Joe DellaGatta.

Every year at Boston Comic Con, there’s always something new that catches our eye, whether it be a comic or creator.  This year however was different as there were two things that caught our eye(s).  One was a creator (who will be featured in an upcoming interview) while the other were the fine folks from The Fictory.  What initially drew us to them was the Atomic Robo animated trailer (click here to watch) playing at the booth and then the video pinball machine based on their first Intellectual Property, Stabb Gunner.  Fortunately, Allen J. Clements, the master of PR for The Fictory and producer for their sister company, Postage VFX, was there to talk to us.  He gave us the lowdown on both Atomic Robo and Stabb Gunner as well as hinted at projects in the works.

If you remember way back when to Boston Comic Con 2011, then you remember the praises we sung for Daniel Bradford and Tom Hall.  This notorious duo are the ones responsible for creating one of our favorite indie books, R13 (Robot 13).  We gushed about it in our BCC Indie Spotlight 2011, Half Year Progress Report and Year End Round up because where else are you going to find a robot with a floating skull kicking the ass of gigantic Greek myth-inspired monsters?  We had the pleasure of speaking to the two about upcoming plans for R13, The King and other projects.
