Things We Saw Today: A New The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Poster

Warner Bros. has released this new Desolation of Smaug banner in advance of the new trailer, which is coming out tomorrow. I’ll just wait here then. (SuperHeroHype)

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire also has a new poster! (Moviefone)

  • We eported that after Catching Fire is done with Jennifer Lawrence is turning to two potentially good-sounding movies. Now Jezebel tells us a different role she’ll be taking: A cameo in Dumb and Dumber To. Oh-kaaaaay.
  • I didn’t know this, but there’s been an Emily the Strange movie loafing about in development hell since 2010. The adaptation, which has Chloë Grace Moretz attached to star, now has a new scriptwriter and therefore a slightly better chance of actually being made sometime soon. This will be writer Kealan O’Rourke‘s feature debut. (Digital Spy)

ThinkGeek is selling this official replica of Kaylee’s parasol from Firefly. (Fashionably Geek)

    There’s a pretty intense back and forth on the comments section at the ThinkGeek listing for Kaylee’s parasol! There’s a lot f angry independent makers and craftspeople accusing ThinkGeek of putting them out of business and Fox of cashing in on a franchise they killed… and a lot of other people pointing out that these independent crafters are operating illegally anyway and the owners of Firefly have every right to merchandise as they see fit. It’s interesting.

    For the love of your sanity stay out of the comments on the Kotaku article if you hate transphobic stupidity, you WILL flip a table.

    Yeah I mean I always assumed crafters operated on the assumption that what they were doing was small scale and that it was the company’s right to do what they wanted with their properties.

    Same. While I can understand the emotional reaction to Fox making money off a property most people feel they destroyed, it doesn’t change the fact that the franchise and all its intellectual property belong to who it belongs to. It seems a tad hypocritical for crafters who have been making money for years by infringing on someone else’s intellectual property have the cheek to accuse ThinkGeek/Fox of stealing revenue from THEM now.

    I think Firefly (and other fandoms, but Firefly’s a big example) is something where fans have been so active in support of the show that some of us have kind of forgotten we haven’t bought shares in it.

    Fox may have acted badly, but they also made the show in the first place so it also seems a bit selective to cast them as a body with no moral claim on Firefly.

    Is it me or does that “Catching Fire” poster seem very familiar?
