The Other SideTHE STORY: "The Other Side" by Jason Aaron (W) & Cameron Stewart (A) - Vertigo Comics

WHAT IT'S ABOUT: Billy Everette of Russellville, Alabama and Vo Binh Dai of Nam Phong are two soldiers on opposing sides of the war in Vietnam. Both men are experiencing something profound: Billy daydreams of the ghosts of war, while Vo Dai believes himself to be walking along the Eightfold Path towards enlightenment. And though neither of them have ever met, their worlds are destined to collide all the same.

The stories of these two soldiers speak to what lies in wait for mankind beyond the wire — what lies in wait on the other side. Read More...

Human TargetEpisode Title: "Salvage & Reclamation"

Written By: Jonathan E. Steinberg & Robert Levine

Story: Christopher Chance (Mark Valley) is hired by Maria, an old love interest, to track down and rescue an archeologist named Doug that's being held captive by local South American officials. Doug is the proud owner of a golden treasure worth something to the tune of $40 million — a tune that a rival bounty hunter named Bertram would love nothing more than to capitalize on. Read More...

Y: The Last ManDespite the attachment of director D.J. Caruso and the rumored involvement of "Transformers" actor Shia LaBeouf, "Y: The Last Man" still has a ways to go before its big-screen debut.

In 2008, Caruso admitted that adapting the comic books has proven "really tough," while LaBeouf cast some doubt on his own attachment to the project just last year. But that doesn't mean you have to sit around waiting for the film to get made while all the men in the world drop dead — at the very least, you can wait with some interesting reading material.

Over the weekend, io9 linked to an early draft of "Y: The Last Man" written by Brian K. Vaughan himself. While the script is no longer available at My PDF Scripts, other online venues have posted Vaughan's draft, a screenplay that makes some significant departures from the source material.

So, what's our slightly spoiler-filled take on the screenplay? Read More...

The LosersIt seems like "The Losers" just can't sit still. Following Warner Bros. Pictures' announcement that the film would transition from its original April 9 release date to a later June opening, the studio has now shifted the film back to an April 23 premiere.

The move was reportedly intended to keep "The Losers" from closely competing with the action-oriented "Clash of the Titans," which would be playing its second weekend in theaters. Additionally, the June move was intended to provide the studio with ample time to make corrections based on audience feedback from test screenings.

Apparently those changes won't take as long to make as initially expected, meaning Warner Bros. is returning "The Losers" to April, even if the new date is still a few weeks later than first planned. Read More...

"Jonah Hex" hits theaters in June, but NECA Toys and Collectibles debuted new figures and prop replicas from the upcoming film during this year's Toy Fair convention.

While we've seen "Jonah Hex" stars Josh Brolin and Megan Fox in costume at various points throughout the production, NECA's trio of collectible figures offered up one of the first peeks at John Malkovich, who plays Hex's nemesis in the film. Little is known about Malkovich's character, plantation owner Quentin Turnbull, except that he blames Hex for the death of his son and has sparred with the confederate soldier-turned-bounty hunter frequently in the DC/Vertigo comic book series.

NECA also showed off a pair of prop replicas from the film, including Turnbull's silver-handled cane and one of Jonah Hex's tomahawks. Read More...

The release date for "The Losers," Sylvain White's adaptation of the DC/Vertigo comic book series by Andy Diggle and Jock, has been pushed back from April 9 to a new premiere on June 4.

Warner Brothers confirmed the new release date today, which will have the film opening just one week ahead of "The A-Team," which shares the somewhat similar theme of exiled, highly trained soldiers on a mission to find out who put them on the wrong side of the law. The film stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Evans, Zoe Saldana and Idris Elba, among others.

The LosersIt's been a while since we had any new photos off the set of "The Losers," but a quick trailer preview just showed up sporting fire, broken glass and some quick one-liners from Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Chris Evans.

[UPDATE: "The Losers" trailer (the complete one) is now online!]

The montage of moments (posted on MorganUnlimited) includes Morgan's motif-setting statement for the film, "If you want your life back, you're gonna have to steal it," and there should be more trailer action on the way soon, both on "Entertainment Tonight" and in theaters.

"I'm assured the full trailer should be released online within the next few days, and that it'll play before Mel Gibson's 'Edge of Darkness' this weekend," wrote "Losers" comic author Andy Diggle on his blog.

Heavy LiquidTHE STORY: "Heavy Liquid" by Paul Pope (W/A) - DC/Vertigo

WHAT IT'S ABOUT: "S," the hero of this bizarre urban future tale, agrees to hunt down a sculptor who will turn a chunk of the ultra-expensive white material he is addicted to into an exquisite work of art. The mercurial lava he carries brings a cartel of oddly masked thugs after him, though.

It's a conspiracy story filled with chases, creative passion and betrayal that takes him from New York City to Paris with a look somewhere in the overlap among James Bond films, "Trainspotting" and Grant Morrison's "Invisibles." Read More...
