Here we go. After those distant shots of a pantsless Supes last week, we finally get a good look at Henry Cavill in his Superman suit on the set of Man Of Steel.
Okay, so that’s not a good one. How about these?
George Lucas can’t leave well enough alone, can he? Check this out -
Oh, George. Why do you anger the fanboys so? Personally, I think it hilarious! I’m going to watch the entire series the way it is clearly intended – as a twelve hour extended cut of Spaceballs.

So, what does it mean for us lame-ohs? The ones who maybe buy the odd graphic novel collection once in a while? DC’s official trailer doesn’t tell us a lot.
As far as I can gather, DC is rebooting the continuity by reducing it into a five-year time period to simplify the storytelling and introduce new readers. Those seventy years of classic (and not so classic) stories are being condensed into a much smaller timeframe. Some things survive the cut, others do not. We’ll talk about them later. This is all happening at the end of the Justice League mini-series Flashpoint and every issue after this point will be labelled number one and begin anew.
Opening in Seattle in the shadow of the Space Needle, an idealistic and individual US senator celebrates the fourth of July with the public and possibly announcing a campaign for the presidency. About to give his speech atop the tower, the senator is brutally assassinated by one of the waiters, who appears to be working in tandem with another. One quietly makes his way from the scene, while the waiter who pulled the trigger manages to evade capture and takes a running jump off the side of the building. A committee decrees that the assassination was the act of a lone gunman, an obsessed nut, and closes the case.
Three years later, Lee Carter (Paula Prentiss) a paranoid and clearly terrified TV reporter who witnessed the killing firsthand, turns up at her at Joe Frady’s (Warren Beatty) apartment. Joe was also there that fateful day and is also a journalist for a Seattle-based paper. Carter says that somebody is trying to kill her and shows Frady evidence of six other people dying since the assassination. He dismisses her and sends her on her way. The next day she’s in the morgue having died of a drug overdose.
Frady takes up the investigation and his first port of call is a small village where a judge had drowned while fishing. The local police force don’t take kindly to his questions and try to kill him. Joe escapes, and snooping around the police officer’s house, he discovers some forms for the Parallax Corporation…
Shallow? Yes. Sexist? Possibly. A flimsy excuse to cover The Shootening in Hollywood’s loveliest ladies? You betcha!
Ah, Rosario. You’re lovely. It’s the smile, I think. Definitely the smile. Did you know her début was in 1995′s controversial Kids, along side indie favourite Chloë Sevigny? No, neither did I ’til I read her wiki page. Anyway, why is she number ten in my list? Hers isn’t the most glittering of filmographies. Well, she qualifies through the gorgeous to look at but empty and vacuous Sin City, and I freaking loved her turn in Grindhouse: Death Proof. Mostly, though, because I want her to be cast as Wonder Woman. It’s the smile…
SPOILER WARNING. From here in out I’m going to be giving away story and plot points. If you intend on playing the game and want to remain spoiler-free, stop flipping reading, you idiots. For everyone else, welcome.
Okay, a little background before I start. For you non-gamers out there, Deus Ex was a very highly regarded cyberpunky First Person Shooter from 2000. Mixing action and role-playing elements, it’s probably best known for it’s branching storyline and the multiple ways in which you can complete sections, using stealth, bloody violence, or just talking. It spawned a less well-regarded sequel, Deus Ex: Invisible War, in 2003. Deus Ex: Human Revolution is a prequel to both those games. Two games I’ve never played, I should add. This my first time in the Deus Ex world. Please be gentle… Read more »
I don’t know why Hollywood doesn’t just reboot it. I mean, they’ve pissed all over our other childhood memories, why stop here? But here we go, big ol’ cuddly ol’ Dan Ayckroyd has been talking up Ghostbusters 3 in a recent radio interview. The film, rather appropriately, has been in development hell for decades now, but Ayckroyd insists that 2012 is when things will finally get moving. He says -
“Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray. That is our hope. We have an excellent script. What we have to remember is that ‘Ghostbusters’ is bigger than any one component, although Billy was absolutely the lead and contributive to it in a massive way, as was the director and Harold [Ramis], myself and Sigourney [Weaver]. The concept is much larger than any individual role and the promise of Ghostbusters 3 is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood.”
This is freaking huge news. Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs has resigned. The brief statement is here. Tim Cook, who has been acting CEO in Jobs’ absence, is due to replace him.
Jobs has been on sick leave for many months now and has looked frail at recent press events, so this is not entirely unexpected, but this is still huge news.
We got our first look at Henry Cavill as Superman a couple of weeks back. There was some controversy over the chainmail-esque look of the suit, the lack of a spit curl, and much debate over whether Man Of Steel’s Supes would be wearing his traditional red pants or not. Well, these pics seem to answer the question unequivocally.
Nope, no red pants, just a big blue bulging crotch. Dr Manhattan in Watchmen, anyone?
Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim this weekend was pretty darn huge. Amongst many things glimpsed were Pixar’s Monsters U, the prequel to Monsters Inc., Pixar’s Brave and a new Toy Story short to be shown before The Muppets movie. Also announced were two as-yet-untitled features by Pixar. The first runs with the idea of what would happen if dinosaurs never went extinct and the human race grew up along side them. The second, which sounds amazing and super-trippy, is said to take place entirely inside the mind. But that’s enough of that, let’s get to the real excitement…
