The Princess Bride

  1. ABC’s ’80s Sitcom The Goldbergs Gets Princess Bride Tribute Episode

    No one tell my baby he's not a Dread Pirate Roberts!

    I'm way behind on Season 2 of The Goldbergs, but I definitely had a Selfie-like relationship with the show's first season, which surprised me with its sincerity, awesome cast and frequent homage episodes to '80s classics like The Goonies. And now, according to showrunner Adam F. Goldberg, the series has gotten permission from Castle Rock to film a tribute to one of his favorite movies.

  2. How The Princess Bride Is (Mis)Remembered in Games After 30 Years

    In-app purchases? Inventory management? Inconceivable!

    Video games based on movies get a bad rep. That’s fair, because honestly, most of them suck.

  3. The Princess Bride Is Now a Mobile Game as You Wish(ed)

    This means exactly what you think it means.

    Nearly 30 years after the fact, you might have thought a Princess Bride mobile game was inconceivable. Your hopes for such a thing were probably mostly dead. And yet, against all odds, that's what bwings us togevva today.

  7. There’s An Alternate Universe Where John Mayer Wrote a The Princess Bride Musical

    "There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world..." ["Your Body Is a Wonderland" plays in the distance.]

    The Princess Bride is already getting a stage production, but in a recent interview director Rob Reiner revealed that musician John Mayer, among others, already took a crack at musicalizing what many consider to be one of the most perfect—certainly one of the most quotable—movies ever made. But it was not as the Broadway gods wished.

  8. A Trailer For Galavant, ABC’s Medieval Comedy Musical TV Series

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Musical TV series don't have a great track record but this new one from ABC might be just what the doctor ordered. At their recent upfronts, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee called Galavant "Spamalot meets Princess Bride," which is pretty much on point. I'd add Robin Hood Men in Tights to that as well. I'll give it a watch but it will be interesting how it keeps up the pace each week. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  10. Andrew DeGraff Maps Your Favorite Movies With Beauty and Precision

    We've featured the work of Andrew DeGraff before, the carefully arranged, graphically precise maps of character locations in Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and others of our favorite films. This weekend, however, he opened a show of new paintings in Los Angeles, featuring maps based a slew of other films, including Alien, The Breakfast Club, The Princess Bride, and a massive map of The Lord of the Rings. But if you want to see that one in beautiful high res, you'll have to check out /Film.

  13. As We Wish: Cary Elwes Is Going To Write A Princess Bride Memoir

    Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

    Besides reboots, it's not often we find ourselves writing news stories about 80s films. And now we've gotten two in the same month about the same film - The Princess Bride. We recently learned it was being turned into a stage production but today, it's a book. A book actor Cary Elwes will be writing about his time working on The Princess Bride

  14. Disney Working on a Stage Version of The Princess Bride

    Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

    You are correct, this is not a screencap from The Princess Bride. No, it's from another piece of modern source material that parodied a very specific period in European writing and then was converted into a stage musical. It's just that no one spontaneously bursts into song in The Princess Bride like they do in Monty Python's The Holy Grail, but that might very well change.

    Awwwwww

    Rhett Hildebrandt used these graphics of sci-fi/fantasy OTPs (that's One True Pairing, y'all) to propose to his fiancée through social media (I'll let When Geeks Wed explain how). She said yes, but the drawings are still up on the internet for the rest of us to enjoy.

  16. The Boy from The Princess Bride Does Not Approve of Game of Throne’s Shockers Either

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    While we previously heard his opinion on earlier Game of Thrones events, it seems that little Fred Savage in The Princess Bride has, like the rest of us, continued to follow the story despite George R.R. Martin's cruelty.  However, his Grandfather just arrived at a certain event in the book he can't accept.  Watch out for Spoilers, and otherwise, follow through for the video.

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    You probably know by now Game of Thrones is a pretty violent and unforgiving story. So what if you sat down to tell it to a young child? Say, in the vein of The Princess Bride? [Spoilers for Season 1, basically] (via Tor.com) Previously in Game of Thrones

  18. Jack The Andre The Giant Slayer Wins Best Editing In Awards I Just Made Up

    The trailer for Jack The Giant Slayer looked surprisingly good. So good that I actually want to see it. You know what would make Jack even better? If instead of being the movie that it is, it was really just The Princess Bride, because The Princess Bride is the best movie. That's why Lance Ford, a video editor and guy I want to hang out with now, mashed up the two to create Jack The Andre The Giant Slayer. It probably won't make you run out to see Jack, but I'm certainly watching The Princess Bride once I'm done writing this.

  19. INCONCEIVABLE! There’s Going To Be A Princess Bride Board Game

    Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

    This is just concept art right now, the final design is TBD but Game Salute is currently developing a Princess Bride board game. They write, "In order to do justice to the entire story, The Princess Bride: The Board Game is comprised of individual scenes, with each scene presenting a mini-game that advances players through the central story.  This allows players looking for a quick, fun visit to a beloved classic to play a game that lasts under an hour, while players who want to experience the entire Princess Bride story in one sitting can enjoy an epic day of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles." They also say they have the rights to create other types of games which could tie into the board game and are accepting ideas for scenes you'd like to have playable. The battle of wits has begun!
