NBC has picked up the poor man’s Batman, The Cape, to series. In it, you have a disgraced cop going up against a billionaire villain so they don’t violate intellectual property. Still, it’s been a while since anyone in a cape was on network television. Plus the addition of Summer Glau as a Lois Lane-style blogger should bring in the Whedonites.
Somebody who is not Paramount Films has taken to Twitter under @ParamountFilms and started having fun with all their properties, calling out the giant on Avatar: The Last Airbender’s race bending, their total disinterest in funding Anchorman 2 with Iron Man 2 money, and anything else they can think of. It’s not politically correct, but it is funny.
Because it’s funny, and not because it has any redeeming value whatsoever, you should watch what happens when you take the audio from the inscrutable Inceptiontrailer and run it behind cuts from the Toy Story 3 trailer. Ken is remarkably sinister!
Heroes is done as a series, but after they deal with the media buyers this week, NBC plans to discuss if it gets a two-or-four hour movie event to wrap things up (and justify a separate DVD release).
Marilyn Manson and his girlfriend Evan Rachel Wood have announced plans to star in Splatter Sisters, which is being described as “a sexploitation-serial-killer-road-movie-circa-1989.” It’s being produced by David Gordon Green, who was behind Pineapple Express, so I’m not sure the feel they’re going for.
Above, you can see a new banner that Twilight: Eclipse has released upon the world, and below we have a clip from the film that doesn’t include Taylor Lautner’s abs or Robert Pattinson sparkling. Instead, we have Dakota Fanning trying to sound menacing, which just seems wrong.
Steampunk was the order of the day for the 2010 Nebula Awards. Best novel was The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi, novella went to The Women of Nell Gwynne’s by Kage Baker.
The Save Our Seeker Campaign has a new backer in Terry Goodkind. They’re launching a fundraising drive to send Season One DVDs to libraries. The hope is to generate profits and interest to resurrect the series. A donation of $100 or more gets you a personalized DVD set.
This picture of Megan Fox from Jonah Hex is hot. There’s no other way to describe it, even if you’re not sure what’s she’s been up to with that axe.
And because I love to leave you laughing, watch as He-Man sings “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes.
