    Stuff: Andrew Garfield Spidey-Suits Up

    Amazing Spider-Man

    The Pareto Principle states that 80% of the worthwhile pop culture news can be snagged by only taking in 20% of the volume of regular pop culture news coverage. (Or something like that.) This post is designed for anyone who wants pop culture news in digestible bits, all in one shot, so that person can take a few minutes to get up to speed and then get on with their lives. Enjoy.

  • Amazing Spider-Man has a release date: July 3, 2012. And while a previous picture showed a slightly battered Andrew Garfield in most of the Spidey suit, the official site now has a pic that's supposed to be Garfield in full gear. I dunno...works for me. Click through to the official site to embiggen it.

  • Dominic Cooper has signed on to play Henry, the friendly neighborhood vampire, in Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. Source.
  • Atlas Shrugged Part 1 has a trailer and a release date of April 15th. It looks, however, frighteningly good. Whatever it turns out to be, I imagine it has a screenwriter that didn't blatantly misread the original novel. I won't mention any names, because that would be indiscreet. Randall Wallace. Trailer comes after the break.

    Win Cop Out on Blu-ray!

    Cop Out Blu-ray Cover Art

    Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan star in Cop Out, a comedy from director Kevin Smith, and the Blu-ray combo pack is out from Warner Home Video.

    Here's what they have to say for themselves:

    Cop Out tells the story of two longtime NYPD partners on the hunt for a stolen, rare, mint-condition baseball card who find themselves up against a merciless, memorabilia-obsessed gangster. Jimmy (Bruce Willis) is the veteran detective who desperately needs his missing collectible in order pay for his daughter's upcoming wedding. He enlists his partner Paul (Tracy Morgan) who is consumed with his wife's alleged infidelity.

    Trailer? Okay, sure:

    Headsup: Big Boxes of Adult Swim, Kevin Smith & John Denver

    There's a lot of stuff that comes out each week. We're here to run it down for you and help you decide what's worth buying. Because somebody had to, right?

    Monty Python: Almost the Truth Blu-Ray cover art

    Adult Swim in a Box. At first glance, this set seems like a total no-brainer. Season sets from six Adult Swim shows plus a bonus disc of never-before-seen pilots? Brilliant. Then on second glance, you see that we're not talking a true Adult Swim primer, i.e. first season sets from everybody. We're talking the second seasons of Sealab 2021 and Robot Chicken, the third season of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast, and the second volume of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. The only first seasons in here are Metalocalypse and Moral Orel. So what was the perfect gift and primer for a sick individual you know could use some Adult Swim is now...suspect. It seems like they're just trying to unload some inventory, frankly. But the Adult Swim hardcore...should they buy it? Since, after all, they're the ones that will be drawn the most to the pilots on here: The Best of Totally For Teens, Cheyenne Cinnamon and the Fantabulous Unicorn of Sugar Town Candy Fudge, Korgoth of Barbaria, Perfect Hair Forever and Evan Dorkin's Welcome to Eltingville. And that coupled with the price point--it's $47.99 on Amazon as I type this--it becomes a two-pronged conditional recommendation. If you don't own the sets involved and want them, you'd be crazy not to snag this, because once you've bought two of the sets individually, you've paid for the Box. And if you're an Adult Swim fanatic and want the pilots on DVD, well, this is where you can find them. Click here to buy it from Amazon.

    Stuff: Catholic League On Board With 'Angels and Demons' Marketing Strategy

    Angels and Demons book cover art

    Some sites spend all their time and energy making you think everything pop culture-related is important. And if you've got nothing but time on your hands, then that's fine. Some of us, though, have lives. Not us at the site, you understand. We mean you guys out there. We take what they need an entire site to cover and do it in one post. Have some of your day back. Enjoy.

  • Furthering evidence for my theory that the Catholic Church and Dan Brown are in cahoots, The Catholic League has announced it's going to fight Angels and Demons, ensuring that everybody and his pet squirrel named Fred will see it. You'd think if anybody could appreciate the notion of a self-fulfilling prophecy... Source.
  • Amazon has Wiis back in stock, for those interested. Find Wii-ness here.
  • Anybody wanting Coke with real sugar, eyes forward. It's coming up on Passover. If you live in a big city, keep your eyes open and buy whatever you want because I guarantee you that stuff will be gone the next time you walk in the store. Last year I couldn't find a single bottle. Coke's price hikes and my desire to cut back on sugar finally broke my Coke addiction, but I still maintain that Coke is missing a trick.

    Stuff: They Saved Hitler's Brain: The Musical. Ohhh. Yes.

    They Saved Hitler's Brain

  • I am now officially happy as hell. Jon and Al Kaplan, the batshit crazy yet brilliant duo behind Silence!, the Silence of the Lambs musical, are doing the songs and book for They Saved Hitler's Brain, being remade as a sci-fi musical comedy. You might have noticed that any crazy musical idea I've mentioned Team Kaplan could handle it--and now my dream is coming true. Frea-king awesome. Source: Variety.
