Things We Saw Today: 30 Rock Does Superman

(via MTV Geek!)

  • The Frisky has a video of Jennifer Lawrence explaining her “I beat Meryl!” Golden Globes moment—it’s just a quote from The First Wives Club, calm down everyone.
  • It’s being reported that the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie produced by Michael Bay will start filming in April. Yes, yes, but are they still aliens? (via SuperHeroHype)
  • IGN’s Lucy O’Brien explains why Star Wars: Episode VII should have a female protagonist.

Here’s the first image from Bong Joon-ho‘s Snowpiercer, about a dystopian post-Ice Age future where what’s left of humanity lives on a constantly moving train where revolution is brewing. Why am I so freaking excited about this movie? Check out its cast: Tilda Swinton. Chris Evans. Jamie Bell. Alison Pill. John Hurt. Ed Harris. Octavia Spencer. South Korean actor Song Kang-ho, who was excellent in Park Chan-Wook‘s 2009 vampire movie Thirst. I’m feeling Pacific Rim levels of anticipation here. Higher, even. (via Bleeding Cool)

  • Speaking of Chris Evans movies, Marvel has announced that both Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy will be in 3D. Just in case you had any doubts that they would be, you can now put those to rest. (/Film)
  • … and speaking of highly anticipated sci-fi movies, Alfonso Cuarón‘s Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as a pair of astronauts left stranded in space, has a new release date: October 4, 2013. I’ve been waiting for this movie for what feels like (and probably has been) years. (Deadline)

Sister site The Jane Dough is giving away this Levenger Staff Bag to one of its readers. Plenty of room for all those geeky pins you’ve accumulated over the years and don’t know what to do with.

    Star Wars needs a female protagonist like Jaina. Please.

    At New Orleans Comic Con a couple of months ago, Kevin Eastman assured everyone that the Turtles were not, in fact, going to be of alien origin in the Bay-produced film. According to him, the truth is that the only thing that will be alien is the ooze that mutates them, which was then twisted into the story of the Turtles not being of this world themselves.

    OK, good, I feel better now.

    Okay…will the films be ONLY in 3D? Because that’s a problem.

  • John Wao

    30 Rock is ending soon, blerg.

  • Anonymous (also gettable from Thinkgeek or Amazon) will have you covered. They have the same lens in each side, so you end up only seeing one of the perspectives rather than both, and thus the film becomes normal 2D again.

    Useful for those of us who get headaches from many 3D films but have friends who are like “I want to see it in 3D!”

    Can we have a Superman movie with Tina Fey as Lois and Ariel Winter as her kid flashback doppelganger now?

    There’s some people with eye sight issues that can’t see in 3D, though. That’s what I’m talking about. (while this is still a good idea for those privileged enough, like me, to have near 20/20 vision. The problem though is releasing movies in this way is very exclusionary, to put it lightly)

    I (for instance) can not see in 3D, and long ago I decided any movie that only came out in 3D wasn’t going to be getting my money. If a friend insists on seeing it in 3D then they can pay for my ticket.

    I love that Jennifer Lawrence quoted First Wives Club ^_^
