The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is coming on May 2, but Spider-fans are probably just as excited about the spinoff movies that are going to come down the road: Venom and The Sinister Six.
It has to truly be getting close to when Star Wars will start shooting, because news is breaking out everywhere fast and furious. These reports are coming from legit sources, and here’s some more news on the progress of the next Star Wars film.
We reported on TGD that a Lost reunion was coming to Los Angeles, and it finally happened on the weekend of March 16. The show’s creators, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse were there, along with Josh Holloway, Jorge Garcia, Yunjin Kim, Ian Somerhanlder, Maggie Grace, and more.
While many scoffed at the big comeback of 3D, and in many cases it was certainly deserved, Avatar was a major game changer for the technology. And as you can predict by now, James Cameron promises he’s going to take 3D technology even deeper the next time around.
Another video game movie comes out, Need For Speed, and guess what? It got tepid reviews and box office. It’s sad to say this is no big news flash, and we’re probably still a few years away from the video game movie that could finally turn things around.
How many of you out there tried to solve the Rubik’s Cube back in the eighties? How many of you got completely frustrated and gave up? And how many of you cheated by peeling off the stickers and putting them in the right places?
Many are hyping 3D printing as the way of the future, but is this really case, or is it a bunch of hype? Print the Legend, a new movie about 3D printing, tries to get to the bottom of this.
We know that recently Hugh Jackman has talked about inevitably having to walk away from playing Wolverine. Every ride has to end, but it’s going to be strange seeing someone else playing that character. (Then again, we probably thought that same thing about the Adam West era of Batman.)
With the new South Park game, it’s great to see that humor has a place in gaming. Now Ted, the modern comedy classic by Seth MacFarlane, has gotten a slot game.
Star Wars casting is heating up, and while there’s no official word, there is news that the heroes and villains will soon be nailed down, and we’re sure this will make big news when it’s confirmed. Now reports are telling us that Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years a Slave is up for a role as well.
There’s been a lot of hype and expectations for Divergent, which we at TGD have been calling Hunger Games Lite. At least that’s what it looks like to us, although teen dystopia stories are very popular these days, and the book was a big hit with young adults.
They’re both big, but you know there isn’t going to be a tie when Godzilla and Transformers go toe to toe. Or has there already been a tie? One movie with giant creatures has to be the top dog this summer, but the question is, will it be the big G or the big T?
No matter how offensive it can be, South Park has often been a brilliant show, and Matt Parker and Trey Stone have proven to be brilliant provocateurs in the same vein of Seth MacFarlane. Can they bring that same great irreverence to gaming?
We had the feeling that some more Star Wars news would break soon, especially considering it’s supposed to start shooting either this summer, or early fall at Pinewood Studios in London. Adam Driver from the show Girls is reportedly up to play the villain, and for the lead hero role, casting is coming down to five people.
So many people love to complain about the web, especially the trolls, and certainly they’re obnoxious, but we at TGD love the net, and feel it’s one of the greatest boons to mankind. Now the web is twenty five years old, and it’s amazing to think it’s already hit this milestone.
A lot of times romance can happen in the workplace because a lot of us have little time for anything other than work. So it wasn’t surprising to learn that the co-founder of Google, and an executive at Google Glass, ran off together.
So Veronica Mars has finally been resurrected thanks to the kind contributors at Kickstarter, and it’s gotten good reviews and should open to good business this weekend. What’s next for Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas? Zombies of course.
Ray Bradbury’s classic tale Something Wicked This Way Comes had been in the works for a long time to be made as a film, but the end result, released by Disney in 1983, didn’t cut the mustard. Now, big surprise, there are plans to right this injustice with a remake.
So the movie version of Need For Speed is about to be unleashed in the world, and finally the official reviews are in. The verdict?
There’s nothing worse than when a show outstays its welcome, or when a show ends badly. It doesn’t totally ruin the entire show, or your good memories of it, but it can definitely leave a bad taste in your mouth for years to come, which is why Game of Thrones is planning to get out at the right time.
