We’re just going to pretend those are a bunch of Terminators standing behind Emilia Clarke, ready to do her bidding. Read on to find out which other actresses are testing for Sarah Connor as well as which actor from The Dark Knight Rises director Alan Taylor would like for John Connor.
“I got to work on the remake of ‘Robocop’ with Michael Keaton and Gary Oldman. And pretty much all my scenes were with Keaton. Oldman was in most of ‘em and Jennifer Ehle and Marianne Jean-Baptiste. And so here I am with Commissioner Gordon and Batman from two different generations together and I was there privy to the moment where that penny dropped and they realized that. It was like, ‘Wait a second, you’re in the new one? Who you playing, Gordon?’ ‘Yeah, Batman.’ It was like, ‘Oh my God!’ But then to hear production stories about ‘The Dream Team,’ about ‘Johnny Dangerously’ and fucking ‘Batman,’ ‘Beetlejuice,’ I mean — and then from Oldman I got to pick his brain about ‘State of Grace,’ about ‘The Professional,’ the Nolan Batmans. And that’s the thing, it’s like it’s like a bit of an agreement. I think they’re fine talking about it if I’m actually interested. And they saw that I am [really] a movie nerd. That’s the one thing I’ll be super fucking arrogant about and say I know my shit. And so when they talk to me they can see that. And it was just like it’s a movie nerd’s dream to get to be with fucking Keaton and Oldman every day.” – RoboCop reboot actor Jay Baruchel speaking with HitFix.com.
Vadzim Khudabets has taken bits from over 50 sci-fi movies—some good (The Dark Knight, Sunshine), some bad (The Last Airbender, Prince of Persia), and a lot in-between—and made the trailer for Eterna, the most epic, apocalyptic, explode-y movie to never exist. Enjoy. I know I did.
This might just be the best thing to come out of San Diego so far.
W00tstock may be unaffiliated with SDCC, but that doesn’t stop it from being the biggest concurrent musical nerdfest in the area. So it’s not entirely surprising that some famous nerds might make an appearance!
In the middle of playing their famous song “Write Like The Wind, George R.R. Martin“, the nerd-folk duo Paul & Storm accidentally summoned the author himself, and he wasn’t happy. We know George as the destroyer of hopes and killer of characters, and even in person he does not disappoint.
If you’re wondering why it was up to Neil Gaiman to bring these reconciliation about, you might be interested in this old post from his blog.
These posters were released yesterday to a flurry of excitement, and rightfully. This is the first official look at the main characters suited up and ready for action in the newest movie of the Hunger Games trilogy, and the anticipation is finally coming to a head. These actors look amazing in-costume and it’s even more exciting to think that it won’t be long until we’re seeing them on the big screen!
Also, apparently people were disappointed that the actor playing Finnick isn’t attractive enough. Hah. Haha. Sure. Right.
Since Life’s Too Short is ending its run on HBO with a special on July 5th, can we just go ahead and hire Val Kilmer and Warwick Davis for their own comedy-duo series? I think it would be highly entertaining.
