Official: DC Comics Apps For Apple’s iOS4 And PlayStation
  |  

As reported earlier, DC Comics has finally launched their digital publishing initiatives with a native application for Apple’s iOS4 mobile operating system (iPad, iPhone, iTouch) and two separate distribution deals with comic reader platform ComiXology and Sony’s PlayStation Network (PS3, PSP) — with plans to sell comics digitally through the DC Comics website later in the year [read DC Comics Releases iPad/iPhone App].

“As both a comic book creator and Co-Publisher, it was incredibly important that our plan includes not only creator incentive payments, but also an innovative component that supports comic shop owners. We see digital as an opportunity to grow our entire business,” stated Jim Lee in DC’s official press release.

Lee first spoke about the company’s digital comics publishing strategy at a Wonder*Con 2010 panel, which fell on the same day Apple’s iPad was released as well as Marvel Entertainment’s own native application. At the time he stressed that there was no market for digital publishing for the simple fact that no one was making money from it yet.

‘Scream 4’ With Wes Craven Made Official; Release Date Announced
  |  @   |  

We’ve heard quite a lot of talk about a Scream 4 being made, but it always seemed to be writer Kevin Williamson or one of the stars chatting about it and rarely anything official. The biggest question surrounding the movie, which would mark the first flick in the franchise since 2000’s Scream 3, was whether or not director Wes Craven would return. Various reports have seemed to point to Craven coming back, but until today, those were all just a lot of hopes and finger crossing from those involved. And let’s not kid ourselves — since Williamson and Craven were not part of that third movie, their involvement is nothing short of crucial to the success of this movie.

Now, the answer to this all-important question now appears to be a 100% yes. Dimension and The Weinstein Company have put out an official press release, and not only does it confirm Craven’s return, but it also reaffirms the return of stars Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette, and gives us a release date for Scream 4. Now we get to wait and see who the new faces they plan to cast will be; will they be known or unknowns?
