Stuff: Tarsem's Film Hopefully a Hyperion to "Clash of the Titans"' Satyr

Mickey Rourke as Hyperion from Immortals

There are some people who need every little pop culture news tidbit the moment it comes off the presses. They like reading press releases converted into 250 words of article. This feature is not for them. This feature is for people who need to know the important bits and don't have time for the extraneous info. If that's you: enjoy.

  • Immortals is what War of the Gods is called now. Tarsem is directing Mickey Rourke as a mad Hyperion trying to kill mankind. Seriously. What else do you need to know? If you don't know what I'm talking about, go back and watch The Cell and The Fall and tell yourself that that man is going to bring you GODS THAT FIGHT.
  • American Horror Story is the show that FX has ordered a pilot of from the people who brought you Glee. You know what would make the show a slam-dunk for me? Get Kings of Leon to do the theme. Source.
  • Here's one way to do it: create a video game trailer that's so awesome that you sell the film rights on the strength of it before the game even hits. That's Dead Island, of course--although the rights were bought before the trailer, even. Bought in 2009. Just damn. Anyway, the trailer is what everybody has been sending me, trying to get me to buy a console. Bastards. Anyway, fine, here's the trailer. This is more of a horror movie than, well, most horror movies. Watch it after the break.

    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.

    The Curmudgeon: February 2011 Edition

    Welcome to 2011. It's always great fun near the start of the year because a slew of really great new music comes out along with some big releases.

    I am quite excited about London's The Vaccines. Their debut, What Did You Expect From The Vaccines? hits the shops in the UK this March.

    Let England Shake is the volatile new release form PJ Harvey. It's good to see her angry again. Her songwriting skills however have not diminished!

    They had a pretty good run, but finally The White Stripes have split up. White recently made a lovely album with Wanda Jackson, The Party Ain't Over.

    Grizzly Bear has done a bang up job scoring the soundtrack for the feel good film of the winter, Blue Valentine.

    British Sea Power is back with Valhalla Dancehall, a dense and loud record that picks up where Do You Like Rock Music? left off.
