sherlock

Producer Sue Virtue tweeted the very first photo from the upcoming Sherlock Christmas special which will undoubtedly make fans very happy. But before you get too excited, remember that the special isn’t due to air until next year and Season 4 won’t happen until 2016.

Still, I’m happy just to know that they are on the case—and looking very dapper while doing so.

jurassic world

We were told that the Jurassic World trailer would debut during Thanksgiving football but, once again, the release happened a little earlier than planned. Honestly, I don’t know why studios bother trying to schedule these things.

On the plus side, you don’t have to take a break from eating on Thanksgiving to watch the trailer. The official version is available for you to enjoy right here, right now. Check it out after the break…

ash evil dead

We knew that Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell were cooking up an Evil Dead tv series, but at that point it was just a lot of talk. Given all of the unfounded rumors on the issue of Ash’s return over the years, we took it with a grain of salt.

This time things are different. It’s actually happening.

Starz has ordered a 10-episode series called Ash Vs. Evil Dead for a 2015 premiere. Bruce Campbell will star and co-produce the series and Sam Raimi will direct (the first episode at least). And yes, it will serve as a followup to to the films. Essentially, it’s the Evil Dead 4 that we’ve been waiting for:

Campbell reprises his role as the title character Ash, a stock boy, aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter who has spent the last three decades avoiding responsibility, maturity and the terrors of the Evil Dead. When a Deadite plague threatens to destroy all of mankind, Ash is finally forced to face his demons — personal and literal. Destiny, it turns out, has no plans to release the unlikely hero from its evil grip.

Rami added:

“Evil Dead has always been a blast,” Raimi said. “Bruce, Rob, and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to tell the next chapter in Ash’s lame, but heroic saga. With his chainsaw arm and his ‘boomstick,’ Ash is back to kick some monster butt. And brother, this time there’s a truckload of it.”

Truckload indeed. Instead of and hour-and-a-half of Evil Dead on the big screen, we’re getting five hours to enjoy on television. Personally, I couldn’t be more excited about it.

toy story

Underwhelmed by the new Star Wars title? This bit of movie news will likely make up for it (then again, you might be irritated because “Toy Story 3″ wrapped things up pretty nicely).

Disney CEO Bob Iger made the announcement that “Toy Story 4″ will hit theaters in June 2017 during a 4Q earnings call. Variety is also reporting that John Lasseter will return to direct.

Lasseter is the chief creative officer at Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios, and DisneyToon Studios. He also directed “Toy Story,” “Cars” “Cars 2” and “A Bug’s Life”.

trex replica

Don’t be the only billionaire on the block that DIDN’T get his kid a full-size T-Rex skeleton for Christmas this year. Yes, this is actually being sold by Hammacher Schlemmer (naturally) and the details are as follows:

Spanning 40′ from tail to snout, this is the life-size replica fossil skeleton of Stan, a Tyrannosaur first unearthed in South Dakota’s Black Hills in 1992. Found in a disarticulated state (each bone was separated from the others), Stan’s skeleton fossilized over millions of years with little-to-no distortion or crushing, making him the most complete (190 bones) male Tyrannosaurus rex ever found. This museum-quality replica is expertly crafted using GI-1000-grade silicone molds that impart stunning, authentic detail to the polyurethane resin casts that faithfully preserve the healed injuries Stan suffered during life, including a broken neck and ribs as well as puncture wounds in his skull and lower jaw. Supported by a cleverly concealed steel structure, Stan can be customized into any anatomically possible pose desired by a complimentary assembly crew, whether vertically at 15′ tall as if surveying the landscape or horizontally at 12′ tall as if lunging for prey.

It costs $100,000, but that figure includes and assembly crew that will pose it however you like. Personally, I would want to buy a giant Optimus Prime sculpture and recreate this tattoo.
