We all know that George Lucas is perfectly willing to pimp out Star Wars to all and sundry, but I’m beginning to think he’s gone too far.
To ‘celebrate’ the release of The Phantom Menace’ in 3D (why? I have no idea), he’s allowed France’s / Benelux’ fast food chain Quick to create and market a Jedi Burger and a Dark Vador Burger.
No, you read that right, DARK VADOR!
What do these Force injected nummies look like?
Do not adjust your monitors, you’re seeing it right. That’s a pitch black burger bun. Nothing screams ‘Delicious’ like a bun that’s indistinguishable from a charcoal briquet.
And guess what? There’s also the Dark Burger just in case the Dark Vador is too emo for you.
Dear Gods, please make it stop! Next thing you know, Quick will announce that’s the patties are made with bantha fodder.
Whatever happened to collectible cups?
And we’re over-run by the zombie hordes, I want to be on this guys team.
Yeah, I know I haven’t been posting a lot. OKAY! I haven’t been posting at all. In my defense, this new job is really taking it out of me and I’ve had some health issues to deal with. Nothing serious, but they still need to be addressed. Hopefully I’ll be back to blogging regularly in September.
In the mean time, here’s The Princess Bride, with cats!
The big-wigs promoting Splice have created a plush replica of Dren, the human whatcha-ma-who-sit hybrid.
Isn’t it cute? I so want one!
From what I can tell though, they’re super limited edition and the only way you can score one is to win one.
Splice, starring Sarah Polley, Adrien Brody and Delphine Chaneac as Dren opens today.
Remember last season, how Jason was so into killing? He saw it as something noble and righteous.
Well, he’s not thinking those things now.
Nice to see some remorse from him. I wasn’t expecting that.
More True Blood goodies! They are really ramping the promotions up, but I wish they would do another video like they did last season with Bob Dylan’s Beyond Here Lies Nothin. That was fun.
So, what do you think? Is that Alcide, or Debbie?
Dark Horse Comics has posted the preview for Twilight, The Final Chapter.
Synopsis: Brad Meltzer concludes his blockbuster run on Buffy Season Eight! After last issue’s climactic encounter between Buffy and the unmasked Twilight, the Slayer army’s entire mission has been altered and the true nature of the threat they face has been revealed.
Everyone is in place to confront the Big Bad once and for all as Buffy‘s most epic season races toward the final arc, written by Joss Whedon!
Yay! At last we can find out what is really going on. I’ve loved this series and it’s been great to see Buffy play against a larger canvas, but I’ve really felt it dragged in the middle. The season was launched back in 2007, so we’ve been waiting on the conclusion for a while. We’ve seen Buffy struggle with the loneliness that comes from being a leader, suffer betrayals, question her sexuality, re-build her relationship with her sister, lose her mentor; it has been a wild ride. Now comes the conclusion and I have to wonder what will the ultimate result be? Will the Slayer Army continue? Will Buffy come out of this stronger or more damaged than before?
It should be good.
BTW, love the cover! What an amazing tribute to an amazing Uncanny X-men issue. It’s perfect, even down to the lettering at the top.
It really adds to the speculation that Buffy might leave the group and try to find her own life. She deserves it. She needs some time on her own to figure out where she goes from here. She couldn’t possibly be more isolated than she has been through Season 8.
As an added bonus, Brad Meltzer will be answering questions on his Twitter feed today only. Don’t miss out!
Twilight the Final Chapter is out today.
Hugo Weaving has been confirmed as Captain America’s arch nemesis, The Red Skull!
YES! The cool quotient on this film just went up significantly.
Hopefully that Tommy Lee Jones rumor will also turn out to be true.
Production begins this summer in London. Captain America: The First Avenger is slated to open July 22, 2011.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you….
P I R A N H A 3 – D.
While I normally try to avoid these types of movies, this could be fun. Anything with Christopher Lloyd in it is bound to be drenched in awesomesauce.
The cameo by Richard Dreyfuss is just the icing on the cake.
Came across some photos of the cast of The Smurfs as production revs into gear in NYC.
Get down with your bad self, Hank! They did a really great job on the make-up. I hope he has the cackle down.
I’ve also managed to get my hands on the complete cast list. There are a lot of people here:
Neil Patrick Harris, Jayma Mays, Sofia Vergara, Anton Yelchin, Jonathan Winters, Katy Perry, Alan Cumming, Fred Armisen, George Lopez, Paul Reubens, John Oliver, Kenan Thompson, B.J. Novak, Jeff Foxworthy, Wolfgang Puck and Gary Basaraba.
and the plot synopsis:
In the 3D August 3, 2011 release, the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village and they tumble from their magical world into ours – in the middle of Central Park. Just three apples high and stuck in the Big Apple, the Smurfs must find a way to get back to their village before Gargamel tracks them down.
Hmmmm…… does anyone else catch a whiff of Disney’s Enchanted surrounding that plot?
At any rate, after being pushed back three times, The Smurfs will hit theaters on August 3rd, 2010.
