Is it fair for me to pin the concept of superhero over-saturation on an X-Men TV show? Naw. Not at all. But I just can’t ignite the dribbling loins of excitement in regards to this development.
The darkest of timelines.
Here’s a whole fucking panoply of news regarding the next Jimmy Bond flick. It’s dropping next November 6, its title is Spectre, and its cast is tremendous.
The Force Awakens‘ trailer aroused many a big question when it dropped yesterday. One of the biggest questions was regarding the identity of the menacing, mysterious, murky narrator. Just who the fuck was it? Well, I’ve done some sleuthing. Some serious research. And I’ve figured it out. By uh, waiting for every other legitimate site do t legwork for me.
HBO is throwing some serious weight behind its upcoming sci-western, Westworld. It’s got itself a serious fucking cast, big name creatives behind the project (Johnny Nolan, Abrams), and an order for a full season. And if that ain’t enough, it’s got itself a weird viral marketing campaign. Which goes together with J.J. Abrams like peas and poorly-executed mystery box reveals.
Okay, Blizzard. You got my attention. I was waving used toilet paper dismissively in the way of this year’s Blizzcon. But then you dropped this dope reveal. Overwatch. A team-based multiplayer shooter with pizazz, elements from the cancelled MMO Titan, and heroics and shit.
Details and a trailer after the jump.
I wish you could understand how much finding out the official title for Episode VII means to me. I am a Star Wars dick-lord fawning fanboy. Who never thought he’d seen another Star Wars, let alone one which may actually be good. It ain’t even about the title itself. It’s the function the title serves. An obvious reminder that gets my balls a-twitter. This movie is real.
Ryan Gosling’s cinematic Best Friend is getting ready to begin filming his next jam. It’s a female-led horror flick called The Neon Demon. Don’t worry, Nicky. I got the tagline for this shit. “From Neon Noir to the NEON DEMON comes the new film from Ryan Gosling’s Cinematic Best Friend!!!” I’m pretty much a genius marketer.
Pretty fucking killer. That artistic tablet company place, Wacom, is dropping a free digital anthology. Usually I’m all like “Free?!” and then I don’t get excited because I only feel validated when I spend my hard earned Imperial credits. But fuck. Wacom has stacked the deck with some filthy talent on this giveaway.
I haven’t enjoyed (or more specifically, read) Spawn for like…half a lifetime. Literally. I’m thirty-one. I fucking worshipped it when I was probably fifteen. But man. When I loved that comic, I fucking *loved* it. Same goes for Sam and Twitch when Bendis was penning it. But yeah. Like. Half a life has passed and the question has been, “what could ever get me to read the title again?” I’ve found the answer. Brian Wood.
