Thomas Sadoski Comedy ‘The Mimic’

Based on a true story, this clever, intriguing, and hyperbolic comedy follows the main character – ‘the Narrator’ (Thomas Sadoski) who is befriended by his young new neighbor ‘the Kid’ (Jake Robinson), after he joins the local newspaper team.

Obsessed with the idea that the Kid may be a sociopath, the Narrator goes to extreme lengths to uncover the truth about him and his wife, a woman he ultimately begins to fancy. Between long walks down the street, a twisted dinner date, and a car drive gone terribly wrong, the Narrator gets closer and closer to the truth about the Kid. But the truth, as he finds, is anything but what he expected.

“Sociopaths have been portrayed as a shady bunch up until now. Inspired by true events, this confrontational comedy explores the uncharted territory of the lighter side of a sociopath,” says Mazziotti. “I applaud Gravitas Ventures introducing audiences to an alternate character dynamic which has yet to be portrayed under comedic scrutiny on screen.. yet he lives among us all.”

The Mimic will be screening in select theaters, and available on VOD beginning Friday, February 5, 2021.

The Mimic is Written & Directed by Thomas F. Mazziotti, Produced by Benjamin Cox, p.g.a., Executive Producers Stephen R. Foreht, Paul Jarrett, Co-Producers Bonnie Blue Edwards, Sig De Miguel and Stephen Vincent, Director of Photography Timothy Gillis, Edited by Benjamin Cox, Käla Mandrake, Production Designer Laura Miller, Costume Designer Jevyn Nelms, Original Music by Mitch Davis, Casting by Sig De Miguel and Stephen Vincent. A Red Square Pictures and Only Child Films production.

Film Feature: Silence & Darkness

aiphotostudioAfter the death of their mother, blind and deaf sisters Anna and Beth live happily in a secluded small town with Father. However, when a neighbor stops by, Anna and Beth begin to question Father’s medical diagnoses and start to realize his intentions are more sinister than they could have imagined.

Shot in the haunting ephemeral landscapes of Vermont, and at times disturbing, Silence & Darkness carefully crafts a harrowing, and eerie portrait of two sisters forced to use every skill they have to uncover the truth about their family. Writer/director Barak Barkan’s feature debut takes the audience to an elliptical presence in Anna and Beth’s world, guiding our imaginations to follow them into peculiar, secret places.

“I sought to create tension between the viewer and the film, both through Anna and Beth’s interactions and Father’s backstory,” says writer/director Barak Barkan. “My goal is that while viewing the film, the audience will inhabit a constant state of curious unease—desperate to find out what led to the circumstances of this family’s life and what is going to happen next—while simultaneously fearful of the answer.”

Silence & Darkness is now available on VOD/Digital in the U.S. and Canada on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, as well as Direct TV, Dish Network, Vubiquity, and Deluxe Canada. Silence & Darkness is written and directed by Barak Barkan. Produced by Barkan, and Pablo Burn. Cinematography by Omar Nasr, edited by Colton Fordyce, and music by Bob Dylan.

Miles Morales: Trapped In A Clone Saga Of His Own

aiphotostudioA new spin on the classic Spider-Man storyline kicking off in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25

Writer Saladin Ahmed’s acclaimed run on MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN will hit a new highpoint this April with the CLONE SAGA, a new arc that promises to be Mile Morales’ most thrilling adventure yet. One of the most talked about comic book storylines of the nineties, the mega-popular “Clone Saga” took over the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, shocking readers month after month. Now this iconic saga will be—Miles Morales-style—beginning in a special oversized anniversary issue: MILE MORALES: SPIDER-MAN #25.

After months of buildup, the Clone Saga will be the culmination of many of the ongoing story threads that have been haunting Miles since the very beginning of Ahmed’s run. Readers will finally see the full extent of the Assessor’s meddling as his clone creations run rampant through Brooklyn. Designed by superstar artist and Marvel Stormbreaker Carmen Carnero, prepare to meet three distinct Miles clones, each one destined to turn Miles’ super hero career upside down.

“When Peter Parker faced his own ‘Clone Saga’ years ago, he was taking part in what was already one of the most iconic traditions in comics – the hero battling a version of themselves. Since the very first issue of MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN, I’ve known that I wanted put Miles through that iconic wringer in his own distinctive way,” Ahmed said. “Miles’ CLONE SAGA is a story that has been months, even years, in the making. We’ve been planting its seeds throughout the series, from the horrors of being abducted by the Assessor to the confrontations and sacrifices of the Ultimatum epic. Moments from the past will come back to haunt Miles, and the events of the story will ensnare everyone from his baby sister to Peter Parker (who knows a thing or two about dealing with clones). The ramifications will be felt for years, and it all starts in April!”

“If you thought the first ‘Clone Saga’ was controversial, wait until you read what Saladin and Carmen do,” Editor Nick Lowe said.

Loki Sends Jane Foster On An Epic Quest In The Mighty Valkyries

The Mighty Valkyries MarvelAfter their cataclysmic showdown with Knull in KING IN BLACK: RETURN OF THE VALKYRIES, Asgard’s greatest warriors will embark on another glorious quest in a brand-new series. Launching in April, THE MIGHTY VALKYRIES will be crafted by the returning all-star creative team of writers Jason Aaron and Torunn Grønbekk and artist Mattia de Iulis.
After their cataclysmic showdown with Knull in KING IN BLACK: RETURN OF THE VALKYRIES, Asgard’s greatest warriors will embark on another glorious quest in a brand-new series. Launching in April, THE MIGHTY VALKYRIES will be crafted by the returning all-star creative team of writers Jason Aaron and Torunn Grønbekk and artist Mattia de Iulis.

Jane Foster believed she was the only Valkyrie left – but the fight against Knull, the King in Black, proved her wrong. Now the Valkyries must redefine their roles in a changing world – and Asgard’s not going to make it easy. When Loki comes to Jane with rumors of a beast stalking the souls of Midgard, she leaps into action along with the mysterious new Valkyrie who just made her highly-anticipated debut in KING IN BLACK: RETURN OF THE VALKYRIES #1. But does Jane’s new ally have other priorities? Years ago, this ancient warrior made a promise to a woman she loved. And now, it’s time for her to follow through.

Here’s what Grønbekk had to say about the new series:

“This story is big, cosmic, and mythical. The wolves are let loose, an old god is back, and life is finding its way into Hel. People are dying on Midgard, and even Loki has a part to play (which is rarely a good sign for, well, anyone but Loki). Though our Valkyries begin the journey in two different galaxies, their paths soon meet. But there are twists and turns in their way, and nothing and no-one is quite what they seem. They will have to ask the right questions and make hard choices before they can unravel the mystery they both find themselves in.

Spider-Man New Costume Revealed in Amazing Spider-Man #61

aiphotoimaging aiphotostudioOver the years, Spider-Man has donned a host of iconic costumes from his classics digs to the black suit to Iron Spider. Now in 2021, everyone’s favorite wallcrawler will get a brand-new costume to add to his legendary wardrobe!
