If you’re not all about being spoiled about the next X-Men movie, go no further. If you were thinking that our last feature on X-Men: Days of Future Past was too much of a spoiler because it showed off in-set walkthroughs, you should probably turn back now. Today’s feature is "trailer 3", and it tells basically everything you’ll have wondered about up until now.
As part of a collection of oddities that also includes Minecraft and the Mars Curiosity Rover, an "exosuit" has joined the fray known as LEGO CUUSOO. This is the first set to have been submitted and approved with LEGO CUUSOO that’s not either based on a pre-existing object or part of an entertainment brand. In other words - it’s extra beefy with originality!
While the first appearance of Batman took place on March 30, 1939 in Detective Comics No. 27, several celebratory events and releases are being made this week. Lighting up more successful video games than any other comic book character, Microsoft has decided to take this week to dunk Xbox users into Gotham’s finest titles with discounts galore - just in time for Easter, too!
The latest in the long line of teases for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie comes the TV spot "Brothers", which aired recently during the MTV Movie Awards. Though the commercial is only 30 seconds long, it gives fans their first glimpse of both Splinter and Shredder.
Earlier this year a fellow by the name Shubham Banerjee created a LEGO project that went viral. Banerjee is a 12-year-old inventor - he created the "BRAIGO", a Braille printer made using a LEGO Mindstorms set. This idea inspired LEGO Systems to create a competition in which several Seattle companies were invited to compete, creating a LEGO Mindstorms robot to improve everyday life.
This week another Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has been released with cuts far closer to what the final film will look like than the first couple of glimpses we got earlier this year. As you’ll see below, these changes are mostly in the background - when Djimon Hounsou (aka Korath the Pursuer) steps forth to dismiss Chris Pratt’s character Star-Lord’s claim to fame, it’s no longer a cloudy day. Instead they’re standing inside a collection of structures, massive and ancient.
The first DREDD movie with Karl Urban was a disaster in theaters - it was marketed in a way that pushed the 3D element in the film and ticket sales were dumped. Now in the aftermath of its DVD and Blu-ray release, the film has captured hordes of rabid fans - a cult following, if you will - with so much interest that there’s a call for a second film. The creators of the first film are struggling to prove to the powers that be that cash invested in a second film would be worth the time and effort - but there’s a petition, and Karl Urban himself is onboard.
The changing of the late night talk show guard is in full swing this year as Stephen Colbert has been tapped to replace David Letterman for The Late Show. While Letterman will still be commanding the show for some months (at least), it would appear that Colbert is not only the first choice for the role, but the last one as well.
If you found yourself a touch disappointed at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles design, you're not alone, if Internet comments in recent times are any indication. Going to arguably the most authoritative source on whether the new look holds up, co-creator Peter Laird was asked by Comic Book Movie about his thoughts on the trailer, towards which he has some criticisms.
