    Your Weekend Justice #149: Stupid Whores and Cinnamon Buns

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that is offensive, morally reprehensible and should definitely not be listened to by impressionable plant life. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that focus on television like a sawed-off shotgun filled with Jell-O.

    Stuff: Peter Berg to Direct “Dune Hard”

    Faith No More clown poster
  • Faith No More is rampaging across Europe now. Tuffley sent me this poster for an upcoming date in Greece. Nice, yes? He also is fairly certain we will see some North American dates later on. We sure as hell better.
  • Dark Crystal 2, which I could have sworn we had mentioned before–but I must have dreamed it during one of my blackouts–is going into pre-production. It has a title, too: The Power of the Dark Crystal. It sounds like they’re just getting funding and distribution nailed down. I can’t seem to drum up a reaction to this–it just seems too remote, like Tron Legacy before the teaser trailer. After all, the originals for both came out the same year…
  • The Peter Berg-helmed Dune is not dead–in fact, Berg apparently revealed he wants a more action-oriented take on the film than the original adaptation or the miniseries: “
    [The book] was much more muscular and adventurous, more violent and possibly even a little bit more fun… There’s a more dynamic film to be made.” No completed script yet, though per this article, and we are fifteen months later. See why I find it hard to get worked up about films in development? Best to save one’s energy.

    Stuff You Need to Know: Ghostbusters 3 Still Has Some Life After Death In It. Allegedly.

    Because if you want to read an entire site devoted to this stuff, be our guest. But trust us, the news is still fresh when we get around to sharing it. And we get it out of the way quickly so you can grit your teeth and get it over with. Enjoy.

  • Sherlock Holmes trailer is up. And even Doc thinks it has some promise, so all is definitely not lost. Yet.

    Direct link for the feedreaders.

    You can take a look at the round-up of various previous versions of Holmes here. Thanks to Occasional Superheroine (@ohsuperheroine) for the headsup.

  • Some bits from the Coraline musical are going up for auction over at the MCC Theater’s website. Check their site out for more information. Via The Neil (@neilhimself).

    Stuff: Red Dawn Remade With Canadians Attacking? Joke. It’s a Joke.

    Mighty Mugg Mola Ram

    Why in the hell would you try to keep up with pop culture yourself? Outsource it to us. We’re professionals.

  • Vertigo’s Exterminators, from Simon Oliver and Tony Moore, is headed for Showtime. I admit I haven’t read the book…should I?
  • Alfred Hitchcock is getting a boxed set that’s worth checking out from MGM: the Premiere Collection. It’s eight discs featuring Rebecca, Spellbound, Notorious, The Paradine Case, Sabotage, Young and Innocent, Lifeboat and The Lodger. They all feature new commentaries and “featurettes, screen tests, still galleries, vintage radio interviews, an AFI Tribute to Hitchcock and more.” It sounds pretty sweet, although I’ll reserve judgement to see how well the main three releases stack up to their out-of-print Criterion compatriots. SRP is $120, so hopefully the Amazon discount will be steep. Not available yet on Amazon, I’ll keep you posted.
  • Rupert Grint, yes, Ron Weasley, is on board with Cherrybomb. It’s, the article tells us, “a Belfast-set teen drama about two friends whose furious competition for a beautiful but manipulative girl has tragic consequences.” Sounds like it could be an indie success–let’s hope so, because I like all three of the main Harry Potter actors and I want them to succeed. In fact, it was Radcliffe I was the most concerned about and he’s doing just fine with his post-Potter plans. So rock on. Although I will point out that, since they are all young, they qualify for the Nuts on the Road shitlist.
