Things We Saw Today: A Restaurant Where the Waitresses Are Ninjas

Things We Saw Today

Well, dressed as ninjas. Can you imagine flagging down an actual ninja to bring your your check? Kotaku has more information on the Toyko eatery.

  • Horror flick Oculus has a release date: April 18, 2014. To refresh your memory, this is the one starring Katee Sackhoff and Karen Gillan. We’re pretty excited. (Deadline)
  • An piece in today’s Variety on the absence of female directors during this year’s awards season has a lot of great quotes the difficulty women in Hollywood face at all times of the year. My favorite is this one from critic Manohla Dargis: “The great irony is that women are accused of making romantic comedies, as if it’s a bad thing, but Marc Webb makes a romantic comedy and he gets Spider-Man. Are you kidding me? You cannot win.”

New editions of the Harry Potter will have brand new, full-color illustrations by Jim Kay. Here’s his Hogwarts. It’s on trees! Visit Nerd Approved to see the new Harry.

  • We told you earlier today that NBC is producing more live musicals following the rating success of The Sound of Music. Now Andrew Lloyd Webber is saying Cats and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat are getting (not made-for-TV, unrelated to NBC) movies as well. You get a movie musical! And you get a movie musical! Everybody gets a movie musicalllll! (/Film, The Guardian)
  • Potential good news for fans of the recently cancelled Ripper Street: An Amazon-owned VOD company called LoveFilm is reportedly considering funding a third season, with the plan that episodes would premiere on LoveFilM and air later on the BBC. (Variety)

This paper sculpture was made by Jackie Huang for Gallery Nucleus’ upcoming Lord of the Rings art exhibit, which opens this Saturday. I’m jealous of anyone in the Alhambra, CA area. (Super Punch)
