It’s been rumored for awhile, but now the rumor has confirmation from The Goonies Director Richard Donner. Answering questions about comic book movies and their worth, Donner volunteered the info to TMZ stating bluntly, “We are doing a sequel.” This also seems to indicate that he will once again be involved. As to the status of the original cast, Donner said, “Hopefully all of them,” would be back for the new film.

Headphone cords, while excellent for serving a music-related purpose, are kinda dull looking. But now you can make them a bit more fun by throwing on a Scaler or two. These little movie icons can snap onto just about any cord in your home, and the Scaler 1 series features all the best baddies: Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, the Predator and more! The Scaler 2 series features even more movie icons (including a few superheroes) and is available for pre-order with shipping set for July 2014.

Check out the second scaler series after the break…

Poor Aquaman. He takes a lot of flack for being useless. I mean really, how often can summoning a seahorse and a bunch of dolphins be the deciding moment in a fight? Watch as he hones his skills, nearly takes out an innocent chandelier, and actually finds little Nemo.

warcraft+teaser

The new Warcraft movie directed by Duncan Jones (Moon) has finally been given an official release date, according to the Blizzard World Of Warcraft Twitter account.

If you know the history, the film has had a rocky road. However, the buzz on the teaser trailer that showed at SDCC and the rumor that Colin Farrel may be attached are enough to make us cautiously optimistic.

Personally, this pleases me. As a long time WoW player, I’ve always liked the cinematics, and the lore. There’s a lot of story to tell and if it has a budget and a full visual effects team, well, I think it would be pretty kick ass.

As long as they find an actress who doesn’t drive me as insane as Jaina does in game. Because, well, Jaina drives me insane in game.

zelda movie

Of all the video games that have the potential to be turned into movies, The Legend of Zelda should be at the top of the list. It has a huge fan base, memorable characters, gorgeous locations, and plenty of stories that seem like they would translate well to a big screen adventure. Japanese animation studio Imagi Entertainment pitched such a movie to Nintendo in 2007, and the clip is just surfacing. It features super stylized character designs, the right mood, and a fantastic fight scene. I’m sad this movie never got made.

superman batman logo

As you may have heard, news about a Batman and Superman team up movie was released at Comic-Con. Regardless of your feelings about that combo, you have to admit that a logo featuring both the Bat symbol and Superman’s “S” shield is pretty darn cool. Someone present at the panel captured the unveiling of the new design, and the crowd in Hall H freaks out. I don’t blame them.

Check it out in the video after the break.

BBC America and BBC Cymru Wales have announced that they are co-producing a TV movie about the creation of Doctor Who which will feature actor David Bradley in the role of William Hartnell who played the First Doctor. The movie, titled An Adventure In Space And Time, will be written by Doctor Who/Sherlock writer Mark Gatiss, directed by Terry McDonough, and is due out later this year. Bradley seems pretty excited about the role, saying…

“I’m absolutely thrilled. I first heard about this role from Mark [Gatiss] while watching the Diamond Jubilee flotilla from the roof of the National Theatre. When he asked if I would be interested, I almost bit his hand off!”

In addition to Bradley, who appeared in the Doctor Who episode Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, the movie will star Jessica Raine as Verity Lambert, Brian Cox as BBC head of drama Sydney Newman and Sacha Dhawan as Waris Hussein who directed the very fist Doctor Who episode called The Unearthly Child.

Welcome to the age of the internet. Crazy things happen here all the time and can even include a Reddit thread turning into a movie made by Warner Bros. Well, sort of. It all started with this question, posted over a year ago on the site:

Could I destroy the entire Roman Empire during the reign of Augustus if I traveled back in time with a modern U.S. Marine infantry battalion or MEU?

The question inspired James Erwin (Prufrock451 on Reddit) to pen a screenplay titled Rome, Sweet Rome. The story basically follows the Marines as they’re sent into the past and face a legendary villain. I think it sounds made for cool effects and action sequences!

It caught the eye of Madhouse Entertainment who then pitched it to Warner Bros. back in 2011. And now, the studio has hired Brian Miller (Apollo 18) to rework Erwin’s script. Miller is going to make some minor changes to the plot, and we’ll see where it goes. It’s once step closer to the big screen, but really, it’s pretty amazing that it’s made it this close.

Visitors to Tokyo Sky Tree Town were met with the usual holiday shopping scene, except for the giant Lance of Longinus sticking out of the ground. It was part of a marketing stunt for the movie Evangelion 3.0 and it included not just the lance, but an Eva Torii shrine. The theme was even carried underground into the complex, with the tips of the lance sticking out of the ceiling inside.
