Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. EW has some interesting news today regarding the next project from Hobo With A Shotgun’s Jason Eisener. It’s called New York City Outlaws and it’s based on a comic book series.
This thing sounds like it’s in Eisener’s wheelhouse. It’s about vigilantes who rise up against crime when the NYC police are on strike. I can already see the neon lighting and grime from the gutters on everything.
Eisener is one of the nicest dudes making movies out there, so I’m happy for him. I’m also happy that he’s teamed up with Austin’s own Zack Carlson and Bryan Connolly. These guys know punk exploitation flicks inside and out, so I have no doubt that the script is gloriously fucked up.
Congrats, guys! Do us genre lovers proud!

The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day – From the Making of Joe Johnston’s The Rocketeer!

The Rocketeer takes flight thanks to some special effects help from his tiny counterpart!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. Since yesterday saw the rather exciting news that Disney is relaunching Rocketeer I figured why not take a look back at the making of Joe Johnston’s ahead-of-its-time rah-rah patriotic superhero flick. When you go back and watch The Rocketeer today you see why it was the biggest no-brainer that Johnston directed the first Captain America movie.
What’s interesting to me, in a historical sense, about looking at The Rocketeer today is that it was made during the height of Tim Burton’s Batman. Everything quasi-comic book related at that time pretty much had to look like Burton’s exaggerated universe. Dick Tracy is a prime example. But Johnston’s Rocketeer had a throw back quality to it. It didn’t look like the other movies of its type at that time.
As a result that movie feels a little more timeless in retrospect than the other films of the era. It’s helped greatly by the incredible score, but I think its secret weapon is how closely it sticks to the design of The Rocketeer himself. The helmet, jetpack and leather jacket are instantly iconic and they didn’t try to make it cool to fit the times. They were confident enough in the design that they stuck pretty religiously to how it was drawn.
Today’s image shows a miniature of the Rocketeer himself being puppetted for one of the flying shots in the film. It’s a gorgeous black and white photo. Hope you dig it!

Since Rocketeer is such a great throwback that owes a
