Star Wars Themed Wedding

jen-and-joshua-wedding-1

Sometimes people just do it right. And in the case of Jennifer and Joshua – they literally take the (wedding) cake! These two love birds love nothing more than Star Wars, and as you can see from the photo above – they incorporated the iconic movie into their special day. And what’s even more awesome is that THIS WAS JENNIFER’S CHOICE, not Joshua’s. DOH!!! Why didn’t I think of that!? Their wedding photos are something from a galaxy far-far-away.

Heroes Reborn – We Knew You Couldn’t Stay Dead For Long!

Unless you are Ryan Garcia who was out galavanting around watching Broadway shows of some sort while the Superbowl was on, then you probably saw the quick trailer for the new Heroes Reborn series coming to NBC.

First off – who watches Broadway instead of the Superbowl? HA – I’m kidding. Secondly – what? Heroes is back!? You can count me #1 Cheerleader!

Awesome Cosplay Of The Day: Medieval Darth “Lord Vader”

vaderchoke1

Nothing is more intimidating than Darth Vader in medieval times. Not only do you have Vader’s ability to use the force (which would be looked upon as sorcery) you have his size and strength to crush an annihilate even the most brave of King Arthur’s court. Thanks to Samuel Lee of Prince Armory, we have a stunning mashup of legends of old with legends from a galaxy far far away. See more awesome pics (and a video) after the break.

These are real photos, not Photoshop, taken from the set of The Empire Strikes Back.  Sit back and try to figure out what they might have to say to each other.  I think the middle one shows Yoda agreeing that easy being green it is not.

From A Certain Point Of View: Political Perspective In Speculative Fiction

Awesome-Aquaman

Way back in the year 2000, I was snooping around the DC Comics message boards and came across a debate over who the various members of the Justice League at the time would vote for in the 2000 Presidential election  One particularly memorable individual insisted that all the various Leaguers would have obviously voted for George W. Bush except for that “treehugger” Aquaman.

There is one problem with this assumption:  Aquaman at the time couldn’t really vote in an American election.  He was the king of Atlantis.  You know, foreign citizen.  And given the way he was being written in his solo title at the time, it probably didn’t matter much to him who the president was.  Plus, there aren’t many trees to hug on the  bottom of the sea.  Oh, and he’s a fictional character.

Red Rising Book 3: The Good News And The Bad News

morning-star_612x931

One of our favorite authors, Pierce Brown, revealed some information about Morning Star, Book 3 of the Red Rising series, to Entertainment Weekly this week.  It’s spoiler-free so check it out once you’ve read Golden Son (which you should for our Gabbing Geek Book Club in 2 weeks!).  In the meantime, and in an awesome bit of good news, the cover for book 3 was revealed and you see it in its full glory above this paragraph.  Reaper!!!

Sadly, the story does have some bad news.  Book 3 is expected to be released in the spring of 2016.  Spring.  As in not January.  As in more than a year away.  As in FOREVER AND EVER AND YOU ARE SO CRUEL PIERCE BROWN!

UPDATE: The release date has been bumped up.  Full details here!

 

World War Z Sequel To Start Over. Just Like Zombies…Nothing Is Ever Really Dead

18q4h8x4trltzjpg-118566

I don’t know about you, but I kinda liked World War Z. No…I didn’t read the book, like many of you may have done, so to me, it was a fun zombie flick. I especially liked the bite-bite-bite noise of the zombie chomping towards people. It’s super creepy. But, to hear that they are making a sequel that is, well, not really a sequel, that concerns me. Why not just call it something else? Why connect it to the first at all?

Fox Orders Minority Report TV Pilot

Fox just ordered the hot script floating around Hollywood in advance of pilot season. 

The show is conceived as a true sequel to the film as one of the freed precogs tries to acclimate into society and befriends a detective. 

More interested in this as a sequel or would it be better as a reboot?

Will Star Wars Battlefront Drop in 2015?

battlefront

When Disney absorbed Lucas’s Empire (heh), they shuttered Lucasgames and we felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if unemployed programmers suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced.  The Mouse rolled those responsibilities into Disney’s gaming division; which is common in mergers and acquisitions.  Nothing worse than redundancy besides calling human beings redundancies…
