The New World of Warcraft Expansion Came Out Today, So Lets Have Some Pandas

I’m going to assume that if you’re reading this, you’re not playing World of Warcraft right now. Perhaps you are like me, at work on the morning of a new expansion, bombarded by posts of gameplay, news about how some extreme leveler has reached the new cap of 90, and just itching to get your red-headed dwarf feet on a new continent with plenty of fun new things for your pet bear to chew on.

To stave off madness, lets watch some panda videos, which, incidentally, are how I imagine the Pandaren starting zones look right now.

Brave Takes First Place at Box Office, Busts Pre-release Expectations

If you’ve been reading us long enough, you should be familiar with the fact that Hollywood considers an action movie with a female lead to be hobbled by the gender of its main character, doomed to do poorly at the box office because lacks the ability (somehow) to attract a male viewership. Movies with female leads are considered to be at such a disadvantage that they can be incredibly difficult to get greenlit, making it even more difficult find examples that disprove this widely accepted rule. Before this weekend, Brave was expected to open at $65 million if it was lucky, despite the fact that the last twelve Pixar movies have opened at the top of the box office.

The numbers are in, and Brave netted nearly $68 million this weekend, beating the pants off of every other movie in the top ten by a factor of at least three. But that’s not all.

Kelly Macdonald Talks Voicing Merida in Brave; Her Own Childhood Heroines

Brave is almost here guys, just a little while longer. Kelly Macdonald is voicing our new heroine Merida, and it’s fitting, for Pixar’s first princess, I think, that Macdonald is pretty unfamiliar with the rest of the Disney princess characters.

Nearly a Full Minute of a New Scene From Brave Covers Reruns Over Dinner [Video]

Disney Pixar has released a 48-second clip from Brave, showing Merida’s father Fergus regaling the tale of a confrontation with a bear. Apparently, he has regaled this story many, many, may times. It’s a lesson — every kind of family has had to hear the same family stories every year of their lives.

Shooting for Her Own Hand: Two and a Half Minutes of Pixar’s Brave

Well, here’s my shock of the morning: exactly four months before its release to theaters, Disney Australia’s YouTube channel delivers us not another Brave trailer, but a full two minutes and twenty eight seconds of a scene from Brave, featuring what must be a pretty important archery contest. Enjoy. I certainly did.

Bear Chases Child, Woman Chases Bear

A 25-year old Missouri woman named Erin Bolster was leading a group of riders on horseback one day when they came across a bear. A grizzly bear. Chasing a deer that sped right past the group. All the horses, including Bolster’s — a horse named Tonk — ran away from the bear, but one horse, Scout, carrying an eight-year-old boy, ran into the woods instead. The bear started chasing Scout and the boy — so Bolster and Tonk chased the bear.
