terminator genisys

Moviegoers looking for something new have two options this weekend: Magic Mike XXL and Terminator: Genisys. As nerds, we’re more likely to opt for the robot- and time travel-filled latter film, but I’m here to tell you: Channing Tatum Shakes His Butt for Two Hours is the better option. Or at least the more memorable one. Terminator: Genisys is one big bucket of blehhhhhhh.

Imagine what would happen if Star Wars ships crashed on Earth. Artist Nicolas Amiard has imagined exactly that in this series of photographs. He put an Imperial Star Destroyer in Paris, the Millennium Falcon in the Hudson River, and an X-Wing in Venice. He told The Creator’s Project:

“Star Wars is an imaginary universe and bringing elements from this universe in our real world seemed to be a very interesting contrast to work on.”

chew-lastsupper-cover-700x300

When Chew makes its move from comics to animated film, David Tennant will be voicing the character of Mason Savoy, a mentor to the lead character. The role was intended for Robin Williams before his tragic passing last year.

For the uninitiated, the official synopsis for the 2009 comic book series notes:

Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It`s a dirty job, and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chu`s secret. They have plans for him… whether he likes it or not.

Other actors lending their voice talents to the project include Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead) and Felicia Day (The Guild). It will be directed by Jeff Krelitz who also directed the animated series, Torchwood: Web of Lies.
