Cinescape Magazine is returning to news stands in just another month, expected to bring smiles to those who read the popular entertainment movie magazine.
Anthony C. Ferrante, who takes over Cinescape following Mania Entertainment’s purchase of the magazine earlier this summer, issued a letter to readers through the magazine’s Web site explaining why the site and the publication were forced into a hiatus just a short time ago with the failure of then parent company, Fandom.
“Cinescape was about to fall victim to the Fandom Inc. bankruptcy nearly two months ago,” said Ferrante, who becomes editor-in-chief after stints with Eon Magazine, Mothership.com and Fangoria. “Now that (Mania Entertainment) has the Cinescape brand, we’ve created a new design to act as more of a companion piece to the print publication. Before, you only were able to get news from Cinescape Online, but now you’ll be able to get more in-depth features, reivews and opinion.
Frank Kurtz rejoins Cinescape as the news editor for the site. The revamped site will feature a FanSpeak section focusing on Godzilla, James Bond, Batman, Star Wars, X-Men and The X-Files.
Ferrante also said that the print version of the magazine will return in the fall after a one-issue gap.
