OH FUCK SHIT. The bar is open! It’s late! Supposed to open last night, but here we are. A day late. Namely because I spent last night eating too much, consuming too many mind-altering substances, and then woke up around noon today. But here we are! Let’s shoot the shit about what we’re doing this Weekend. To enjoy our Lives. It’s BLUE SKIES and ABOVE FREEZING TEMPERATURES in my neck of the woods. So we’re already off to a good start. Pull up a chair. Tell me a tale.
Call me a replicant and send me to work in the Salt Mines upon Planet Priapism. With one gnarly directorial acquisition the people behind Blade Runner 2: Han Solo’s Revenge have gotten me to care about the movie.
The LEGO Movie has gotten itself its director. While the original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller will be writing and producing the movie, it’s Rob Schrab behind the lens. Or uh, whatever it is you call the lens equivalent for an animated movie. You may konw Schrab from his work directing episodes of Park and Rec and Community. Or if you’re a next-level boss, you’ll recognize Schrab as the creator of Scud: The Disposable Assassin.
Downey Jr. says big movie announcement coming in eight days, drops Iron Man character poster for ‘AoU’
Robert Downey Jr hung a double-whammy on the masses today. First the actor dropped an Iron Man character poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Neat enough, right? But then the good lad followed up that magnanimity up by announcing…a Marvel announcement. Apparently Marvel Studios is dropping some announcement in eight days, and like. If this isn’t web-shooter related, I’ll be shocked.
Goodness me. Hotline Miami 2 is dropping really goddamn soon. Don’t we usually get notified of a game’s release like, six months in advance? Not that I’m complaining. My Spring Break just got a bit more ultra-violent.
Neilllllll Blomkamp’s Alien movie gets more and more interesting. From pitch, to wet dream, to reality, to direct sequel to Aliens? Aiight.
Holy fucking shit. Two of my favorite writers (and the First Family of Comic Creators as far as I am concerned) are not only adapting Fraction’s Sex Criminals for the small screen. They’ve also straight-up signed a two-year development deal with Universal TV.
Holy crap #1: A new Pee-Wee Herman movie is coming. Holy crap #2: It’s coming to Netflix. Holy crap #3: There’s a ridiculous consortium of talent running squad with Reubens on son of a gun.
