Topless Robot is in possession of this official image from the new ThunderCats cartoon. While some people might not be too keen on remakes, I actually think this one has potential for a pretty wicked reboot. Is it time for a new generation to have the ThunderCats in their lives? I would have to say "HOOOOOOOOOOOOH" to that. (That means "Yes.") So, right off the bat, what's different?
, 23, took a 1994 Dodge Caravan
and turned it into the preferred transportation of crime-fighting mutant humanoid turtles after over a year of work.
Gadget Hackwrench. Animated mouse from the Disney
animated series Chip n' Dale Rescue Rangers
. Pilot. Mechanic. Inventor. Central figure of worship in a Russian cult.
Yes, apparently their love for Gadget burns with such unbridled passion, a group of people in Russia have built an entire religion around her likeness. They pray to posters of Gadget, write songs about her, and places stickers of her anywhere they can. But really, we'll let their (dubiously translated) words speak for themselves:
Rumors about a fabled fourth season of Avatar: The Last Airbender
have gained traction and number with the release of M. Night Shyamalan
's movie, with willful disregard for the actual cinematic worth of the film. Nickelodeon confirmed them all today, with a press statement announcing the production of Avatar: The Legend of Korra
, which will pick up the Avatar plot seventy years later, with the Avatar who comes after
Aang, a Southern Water Tribe girl (Korra) who has already mastered Water, Earth and Fire.
Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern "Avatar" world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang's son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.
The first Americanized episode of Dragon Ball Z Kai airs tonight at 8 PM Eastern Time on the Nicktoons Network.
The word Kai in this title means something along the lines of "revisited." DBZ Kai is basically Dragon Ball Z with all of the filler cut out.
Yes, you heard me. A DBZ that doesn't crawl along at the pace of a dazed tortoise: half flash backs, and half characters yelling at each other in lieu of plot development.
We all know the internet is made of cats, but sometimes a reminder is good.
Most of us also know that the series finale of Lost is on tonight.
And so we present to you tremendousnews' recap of Lost as told by cats.
Sweet Jebus, that is something else. Japanese theme park Fuji-Q HighLand
has announced that it will be adding a new section to its park, Evangelion: World - Life-Size EVA-01 Construction Project
. In what will certainly become the centerpiece of the place, they are going to build a "life-size" replica of EVA Unit 01, the terrible
mecha of Shinji Ikari
, the series' main character, inhabited by the trapped soul of Shinji's dead mother. But only from the chest up.
Look at the picture above, and tell me that that isn't enough for anyone.
this weekend, Steve Sansweet
let slip that the folks at Skywalker Ranch
have been working on bringing Star Wars
to the blu-ray format "for a couple years." The set would include all six movies and "lots of extra material," for eternally faithful fans to plunk down yet another hunk of cold, hard cash for.
has finally revealed the name and form of its new motion controller for the PlayStation
, the PlayStation Move
. Like Nintendo
and Nun-chuck, it also has an off-hand peripheral with a joystick. Unlike the Nun-chuck, there is no cord, and, unlike the Wiimote, the Move has...
Please pay attention, Nintendo.
Veteran chameleon actor Hugo Weaving is reportedly in final talks to play Red Skull in the Captain America movie. According to The Hollywood Reporter:
The dealmaking with Weaving is in a delicate stage that will play out in the next day or so. Agencies grouse that Marvel plays hardball in the negotiating process and also demands multi-movie commitments, though the latter usually applies to actors playing its heroes.
Your eyes do not deceive you, that is
plush in the trailer for Toy Story 3
. This is less surprising when you remember that the people at Pixar
are, after all, animators, and My Neighbor Totoro
is, after all, one of Hayao Miyazaki
's most beloved films.
This writer really wishes she had watched it by now.
I'm sorry, I'm sorrry! I'm waiting for Netflix
to come out on the Wii
! I have
seen the episode of Samurai Jack with Totoro
. Forgive me.
Add another item to the list of why England
is cool. On Saturday, at precisely 12:59 Greenwich Mean Time, more than one hundred people took the central court of Cabot Circus
in Bristol by shiny, buzzing, laser storm. The mob was organized by Tom Merchant-Locke
, Daniel Morgan Jones
and Liam Penn
, using Facebook
. The clock ticked over, a whistle was blown, and the mayhem began.
has no less than four videos of the event, but our favorite is below. Is it because of the music? Yes. Yes it is.
In a gesture of appreciation to the readers and writers of the magazine SFX, Neil Gaiman has shared some very exciting news with them: He is writing an episode of Dr. Who.
We can't decide whether we're more surprised that this is happening, or more surprised that it hasn't happened already, really.
In his own words, "As anyone who’s read my blog knows, I’m a big fan of a certain long-running British SF TV series. One that started watching -- from behind the sofa -- when I was three."
Finally: the terrifying steampunk future portrayed in Hello Kitty Online
makes sense. While the Hello Kitty Chainsaw is puzzlingly unavailable on Sanrio's website
, and may in fact be entirely made up by the Internet, we are kind of digging the sparkly bronze-studded chain and the cursive "I love you" on the blade. Aww.
AKIRA -- both the 1988 animated movie and the wildly different manga -- has inspired plenty of creative fandom since well before you were born. But this latest live-action fan film stands out from the pack -- not least because of the motorcycle duel at the end, shot with real motorcycles. It's obviously not a multimillion dollar studio flick, but it's a quality fan effort, and, well, live-action motorcycle fights are kinda badass:
