For the first time ever, the 1978 cult classic manga Space Pirate Captain Harlock is getting its own feature film adaptation. Written by Mobile Suit Gundam UC author Harutoshi Fukui and directed by Appleseed director Shinji Aramaki; Toei Animation made its biggest investment ever, throwing $30 million into the project. The story originally serialized by Leiji Matsumoto, has been updated to fit themes of modern society, and has been given a Hollywood style production. Harlock will release in Japan during the fall. No word on a North American release as of yet.
Superman Unbound is based on Geoff Johns' 2008 Action Comics "Superman: Brainiac" story arc. Braniac invades Earth and its up to Superman to save the world.
DC has had some great animated movies lately, but I always cringe a bit when I see a completely different animation style. But from the looks of this trailer I think the movie turn out great.
Superman Unbound will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download later this year.
I did not know Michael Bay was going to make another transformers. This is a series I would like to see rebooted and have nothing to do with Michael Bay.
The production group behind Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Chernin Entertainment, is dipping into its discretionary fund to pick up the movie rights to Noon, a sci-fi short by Kasra Farahani. Noon is about a tidally locked Earth caused by a disaster triggered by mankind's lust for mining the planet's energy resources. For more info, check out the links below.

The new Battlefield 3 DLC is coming out in March and after watching these two videos I am really looking forward to it! The new motorcycles look great and the new Air Superiority has really grabbed my attention. One of the things I've noticed is that the map shown on the air superiority video does not have any ground troops. No stinger missiles and plenty of wind turbines to break heat seeker lock-ons. Sounds like a good jet map to me. Hopefully with so many jets in the air it will be an enjoyable game mode with no one-sided BS. *crosses fingers*
Variety is reporting that Legendary Pictures has signed Duncan Jones to direct the Live-action Warcraft movie. The only movie I've seen that Duncan Jones has directed was "Source Code" and I'm wondering if this director will make something that fans will enjoy. Its a shame Sam Raimi backed out while working on his Oz movie. I know not everyone is a fan of Sam Raimi, but I think he would have made something amazing out of Warcraft.
Part 2 of Doctor Who Season 7 will begin on Saturday, March 30. Finally! It will only have been 6 months since the last episode of this season (not counting the last Christmas special).
"An Adventure in Space and Time"
I'm really looking forward to this new Doctor Who special. The 50 year old premiere episode is very dated and a new HD retelling of the Doctor's origins is something all fans should enjoy.
I never want to move again. Almost every day for the last week has been rain and it's raining even now. It's hard to believe how much stuff two ppl can accumulate over 18 year's until you have to move it all under a time restriction.
Thanks Spectrum/Time Warner for shutting off my services in the middle of the work day. fml. I scheduled the new account activation at my new house for this weekend and for the old account at the house I'm renting to terminate as of monday.. so what does Spectrum do? Shut my account down 1 day before the new account is activated and a full 4 days before it was scheduled to close. wtf. It took me 40 mins on the phone for them to reactivate my internet so I could finish working. wtf.
With the summer simuldub season coming to a close, it played out like I predicted more or less. I'll wait a bit longer before I post my review. Pretty lackluster overall. But for me, the Fall Lineup is pretty stacked. Fairy Tail, SAO Season 3, and Black Clover continues which has become a lot more promising after this last arc I just watched... by far its strongest and most compelling. I watched the first episode of Double Decker! Doug & Kirill which was entertaining, and SSSS.GRIDMAN seems to be a Pacific Rim clone. Overall a return to more action adventure series, and lighter on the fan service heavy series.
The last two chapters of One Punch Man have been the best action/fight scenes I've seen in a manga in years. Flashy Flash's fight was epic and focused on speed and technique. Huge props to the artist for how he drew a speed battle in manga form. Very impressive.
They're not supposed to but there's a way to keep them glowing when they're stowed (don't remember how you do it but I see a lot of people doing it, all I know is it requires you to hit a certain key press while you stow them).
, poor Sledge. Yea they come in Small, Medium, and Large and as I said cost a fortune just to buy the plot. All things said and done you could probably spend well over 100 million gil just to buy the plot and the materials to build your house.
