    Stuff: New Daredevil, Old Zemeckis & Zombie Pets

    Ben Affleck as Daredevil

    Why didn't I just let Nic Cage have the role? Damn.

    There are pop culture websites out there that want to stretch every little snippet of news into its own post. They’re squeezing blood from each metaphorical turnip they get hold of. Not us–we figure you don’t have time for that. So we squeeze the blood out for you and give it to you with a little umbrella in it.

    That metaphor didn’t quite work out. Oh well. Enjoy.

  • Amazon‘s deal of the day is The Little Rascals: The Complete Collection for 68% off its usual price of $89.95. It’s $28.49 as I type this and will be that way for today or until they run out. It’s eight discs containing 80 original theatrically released shorts. Thought you might like to know. You can snag it here–but move if you’re gonna.
  • Yup, another Daredevil movie. Being handled still at Fox, who Variety confirms they need to keep this project in some form or fashion lest the rights revert. David Slade (30 Days of Night) has been tapped to helm–he’s also on board the previously mentioned Last Voyage of the Demeter. No scribe on board yet, but according to Hollywood Reporter they’re going for the Frank Miller/David Mazzucchelli “Born Again” storyline. Okay, that could be interesting.

    Stuff: Plush Birds Are Angry; So Probably is Julie Taymor

    Jumbo Angry Birds Plush

    You know, some people actually have time to watch movie news websites for every scrap of stuff that comes in. They want their news immediately. This feature isn’t for them. It’s for the rest of us, who have lives, and don’t have to know what’s happening on the new live action Peanuts movie right this second. We filter out the nonsense and give you a single post with everything you need to know within. Enjoy.

  • Amazon’s deal of the day is for the Blu-Ray/DVD collector’s set version of The Sound of Music. If you have any interest in the film, I suggest clicking through to check it out, because it comes with a lot of stuff including a music box, scrapbook, soundtrack, souvenir program reproduction and more. You can find it on Amazon here.
  • Angry Birds mania continues…ThinkGeek is now offering Jumbo Angry Birds Plushes. They give this as a reason to build a cushion fort. I’m just wondering who’s bought the film rights. What do you think?

    Stuff You Need to Know: News About Spiders, Dragons and Monsters

    Spidey Project

    If you watch movie news sites like a hawk, then this feature isn’t for you. If, however, you don’t give a rodent’s posterior about reading rewritten press releases and entire blog posts rehashed from Variety and Hollywood Reporter–in other words, you have a life–then this will give you everything you need to know in a single post. Blam. Enjoy.

  • Another Spider-Man musical? Yes, but this one actually sounds interesting: Justin Moran (POPE! The Musical) has decided to create, rehearse and perform a full-on Spider-Man musical for exactly $65 million dollars less than the budget of the Julie Taymor monster. Yes, that would be for zero dollars. He’s also presenting the completed project on March 14th, a day before the official opening of Turn Off the Dark (assuming that doesn’t get moved again). For more info on his quest, check out the site here.
  • Avatar 2 is to be set underwater, so says Michelle Rodriguez. What’s weird about the article is it says it’s unsure if she’ll be cast–but we’ll say no more on the subject for spoiler reasons. (I know, everyone has seen the film but everyone still is missing some people–I know some of them.) That new film hits in 2014. Source.

    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.
