So I stumbled upon this trailer:
Was that not a little amazing? Sure there a flaws here and there but I still found it very compelling. It is apparently associated with the guys from Rooster Teeth, the creators of the machinima series Red vs Blue, which I’m sad to say I have fallen behind on. Still this apparently is premiering next year and I’m going to try to keep updated on it.
I admit I’m not usually the type for this kind of movie. But I really like Huge Laurie and Allison Janey. Who knows maybe it’ll be interesting. If nothing it might have some good writing to study, right?
Unless you have access to the internet. Then you can totally watch the premier at KorraNation.com! Apparently Nick was running a promotion to get 100,000 likes on Facebook. And they got it.
The series already has 28 episodes produced, with an expected 2 season of 14 episodes each.
For those of you who missed it, here is the official trailer:
And two other trailers:
I really don’t know what to make of this trailer other than I do want to see this film. It looks funny but in that “Am I supposed to find this funny?” kind of good way. I want to see it.
The trailer for the newest expansion to Magic the Gathering. Dark Ascension is the 2nd set in the “Innistrad” block, three different cards sets that take place on the same world called Innistrad. It is a horror themed set full of vampires and werewolves and spirits and such. Watch the trailer, if you would.
So the first set introduced the idea that this world once had an angelic guardian that protected humanity from the monsters but now she had disappeared. This trailer, however, puts a really neat spin on the entire idea. A vampire was the one who put the angel into power. He setup an entire system of checks and balances in order to preserve humanity and therefore, vampire kind. And now that the angel has gone missing, it’ll be a vampire who goes to find her, and possibly save her. I just find that idea so really cool.
Anti-racism and non-modern aerial combat. Sounds like an awesome movie.
It’s produced by George Lucas, who did an interview on the Daily Show about the movie. It has some very interesting and blunt views of Hollywood institutional racism.
Summary: It has taken George Lucas 23 years to make this film. One of the primary reasons was attempting to convince studios to release it. According to George, the studios rejected the project because that they don’t know how to market this film because the cast is predominantly black. The studios aren’t willing to risk a predominantly black cast on the international market, which represents 60% of the average profit of big production Hollywood films. They prefer to play it safe.
I wish I could say I didn’t understand the studio’s logic. But where big corporations fail to take the risk of losing money for a good reason, George Lucas has stepped in and funded the entire film himself. Meaning that George will have produced the first predominately black cast action film to be released out of Hollywood. Kinda sad that something like “first predominately black” phrases are still being said in the year 2012, for a variety of reasons.
Either way the film is opening this weekend. See if you can’t make some time.
Wow. Okay you got me. This trailer looks amazing. Hopefully it won’t be another Dead Island where the trailer looks so much cooler than the actual game play. I’m really hoping so as Tomb Raider needs a good reboot. She doesn’t need to get whipped to death like Sonic.

The beginning felt kinda like a Transformers film. The ending was awesome though. I saw Loki in there but I’m really wondering if he’ll be the big bad or if he’ll be the facilitator to bring in the big bad(s).
The Riddler has always been my favorite villain in Batman. Well not always but basically since the animated series.
So you may remember the upcoming sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum. This game is titled Batman: Arkham City and it is due out this coming October and I really can’t wait. Mostly because it comes out next week!
