So we’ve got another Maleficent trailer featuring the Three Good Fairies we know and love from Disney’s animated version. Sort of. Here they’re called pixies and are named Knotgrass (Imelda Staunton), Thistlewit (Juno Temple), and Flittle (Lesley Manville). Their images do not make my brain comfortable.
The Season 3 finale of Sherlock aired last night in the U.S. and with it came another cliffhanger (although perhaps not as dramatic a cliffhanger as Season 2). So what can we expect going forward? The creators are working on it. Read on to find out what they’re thinking and for a chance to discuss the big moments of Season 3 now that we’re all on the same page.
“I can tell you that there are Cybermen in it. It will be a stand-alone episode, I don’t know if it will be number twelve or thirteen. It will be the series’ penultimate episode. But it has a beginning, a middle and an end… Steven [Moffat] wrote to me and asked if I wanted to make the Cybermen scary again. I thought back to myself at the age of six or seven, The Moonbase, Tomb of the Cybermen… I saw them when they were first broadcast. The Cybermen were much scarier than the Daleks, because they didn’t make any noise. The Daleks moved around all over the place shouting “Exterminate”, etc. With the Cybermen, it’s different. You turn around and bam! There they are. It’s scary. I told him that I was going to take the Cybermen from the sixties […] and see what I could do. I don’t know if it’s going to work, we’ll see.” – Writer Neil Gaiman saying as much as he’s willing to say about his upcoming Doctor Who episode.
We mentioned earlier some of the awesome things all us sad not-at-Comic-Con folks will be missing. Well, now you can be marginally less sad! Because it turns out that that Firefly reunion? It’s being filmed. And not just on some grainy flip-cam with sub=par quality so you can half-watch it on youtube later (although we’re sure that’s happening, too). Nope, it’s gonna be on real television, with some more good stuff alongside it.
You’ll be able to see Idris Elba very soon in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, but the British actor recently dropped some hints on Marvel Studios’ Thor 2. Namely that he’ll be back to take up Heimdall’s mantle in the film. But as much as we love Elba, what we’d like to know is, will there be more Sif?
I’ll bet you thought video game acting was easy, didn’t you? Well, as Link and Ganon will show you, a lot of serious brain energy goes into perfecting this craft, and sometimes … you cannot pull talent out of your bag of holding. (NSFW for filthy, filthy cursing sounds, but not that many.)
In case you were faced with the high school English class task of memorizing the famous “To be, or not to be” monologue from William Shakespeare‘s Hamlet, here is one solution: find a ukelele, learn how to play it, acquire musical talent and a lovely singing voice, and turn it into a song! Or just memorize Courtney Welbon‘s version, the melody of which, she admits, does not exactly match the tone of Hamlet’s soliloquy, in which he ponders whether or not to kill himself in light of all the death and sorrow that has been taking place.
It’s an absurd story: ten princess are somehow becoming more and more muscular with each passing night, but to the chagrin of their king father. Some suitors try to solve the mystery, fail, are beheaded. Then one very special suitor shows up, and figures it all out because he is literally a brain. But it’s exactly that absurdism that brings this story, the 2009 graduation film of one Júlia Farkas, to life. Most people can color outside of the lines; not quite as many can do it with this much charm.
Marvel Entertainment must be very confident indeed in the success of not only Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, but in The Avengers itself, because its president of production Kevin Feige has already announced that there are definitely sequels in store for Cap and the God of Thunder.
Not only that, but Steve Rogers’ next adventure will be in modern times.
