On this week's edition of Fresh Ink Online, the guru of comics Blair Butler covers a very political Ex-Machina, an ass kicking Catwoman, a dimension hopping RASL, a  revolutionary issue of DMZ, and Mark Millar takes us back to the old west in Wolverine: Old Man Logan. Logan may be old, tired, and rundown...but artist Steve McNiven has never made 'ole Wolvie look so good!

Prolific writer/director/editor Neil Marshall has burst through the Hollywood gates with his crafty and adrenalized style of filmmaking, making Werewolves scary again with Dog Soliders and caves even scarier with his breakout hit, The Decent. Now, Marshall unleashes a new (and old) vision of the Apocalypse with his Sci-fi/Horror/Action/Adventure "mash-up", Doomsday, released by Rogue Pictures in theaters nationwide this Friday.

An homage to the 80's films that inspired him like The Road Warrior, Escape From New York and hell, even a dash of Excalibur, Doomsday brings us everything we want in an old-fashioned cinematic ass-kicker; Thrills, chills, blood, bombastic explosions, post-punk stylings, hot chicks who hold their own and of course...cannibalism! Do you REALLY want to see Horton Hears A Who when this powder keg of a flick is being unleashed? Come on people!

Marshall sat down with E.C.U. for an in-depth chat on his inspirations for Doomsday, the advantages of being a director and what it was like on the set, orchestrating the end of the world.

Actor Paul Dano, the rising star from The Girl Next Door, Fast Food Nation and last year's sleeper hit Little Miss Sunshine, is receiving rave reviews for his work in Paul Thomas Anderson's new film, There Will Be Blood. The sprawling epic, which has been wowing sold-out audiences during it's limited release last December, has just been released in theaters nationwide and is being primed to strike for Oscar gold.

The film ignites acting T.N.T. in the form of Daniel Day Lewis, who plays Daniel Plainview, a self made "oil man" during the turn of the century America.  Plainview sets his sights on an oil rich territory of California and crosses paths with the town's evangelical boy preacher, Eli Sunday, played by Dano.

We got the chance to sit down with the film's star, Paul Dano who gave us an Extreme Close Up of the story, what is what like to work with two of Hollywood's most creative talents, and a sneak peek at next year's highly anticipated film, Where the Wild Things Are, directed by Spike Jonze.
