1. Number One is Here: Man, I need to see Galaxyquest again. This BTS article on factments really fired me up.

“Tim Allen hectored Sigourney Weaver the entire production to sign his highly coveted piece of the Nostromo from Alien.

She finally did, writing: “Stolen by Tim Allen; Love, Sigourney Weaver”. According to Weaver:

“He was so upset. “Why would you write that?! I was going to put it in my screening room!” Which was such a Hollywood thing to say.”

By Cthulhu she’s awesome.

5. From the What Could go Wrong Department: Research into the dinosaur-[maybe]-killing meteor strike in Mexico, by way of craters… seems like the opening to a disaster flick. What does this strange object buried in the earth do when I press it? Beep boop.

6. Kung-Fu Grip: On the one hand, Daredevil in this instance annoys me for the Gi Joe figure stance and the really in-your-face black and red armor. On the other hand, never mind that, I’d never imagine seeing Punisher live action with a gatling gun would look so NORMAL to me. Well done!

8. It Was Never a Dress: I suppose this is appropriate enough on International Women’s Day, but I appreciated this Leia cosplay by Stacey Rebecca for being all action and adventure and no cheesecake, for once.

9. Bring Back Topher But Dont: Well, this is the state of things in our supers land of plenty: Sony just greenlit Venom, but DIVORCED from the Spidey universe so as not, presumably, to share with Marvel. It’s just so…

Sage advice, all of it. Except I contend there’s no wrong way, really.

2. SGs Will Fit but Only Creatively: Lung sent me this also. I’ve coveted the ‘petrol’ version, as they call it now, forever, but the electric one is hot shit! Even at whatever maybe $65K plus shipping after options, it’s appetizing.

4. The Super Kitchen Sink Approach: Jena Malone has apparently been cut from the theatrical version of Batman V Superman (she was rumored to play a female Robin) but…

According to EW:

“Furthermore, Malone’s secret character will be joined on the R-rated Ultimate Edition by even more secret cast additions, extended fight scenes and further hints to the future of the DCEU. ”

Hmmmmm…

Meanwhile, Bryan Singer has jumped on the R bandwagon with word of a Red Sonja remake because reasons. WB/DC announced a sequel to the unreleased Suicide Squad which will no doubt be R, because how could it not be. And then, just to remind you what it looks like when a studio has a long view plan, Marvel said:

Heh.

6. Well, That’s One Less White Actor: Legendary Japanese actor Takeshi Kitano has been cast in Ghost in the Shell. Sure, this is a welcome step towards at the very least making the cast of this Japanese-rooted story more international… but I’m just stoked because he’s bad ass in general.

7. HAN SOLO BAH!: When you fork out too many credits for the Force Awakens Blu-Ray, you will witness, if nothing else (and there’s a lot else, I suspect) this three second clip of Kylo Ren storming the Falcon with some flametroopers (now THAT would have been a cool battle)…

According to GT those features include:

The Story Awakens: The Table Read – Cast members familiar and new reflect on the memorable day they all first came together to read the movie’s script

At least for the first of 33 variants of the release, right…

8. Two-Weeks of Breath Holding: Have I mentioned I’m a little bit excited about this new season? A little bit? Early reviews say it has the same strengths and weaknesses as the first season, which sounds number one good to me.

9. Beat Them With Their Own Shoes For a Mile: According to Frank Miller, whom I admittedly don’t often enjoy in his modern works, the original pitch for Batman: Year One, was so dark thanks to Darren Aronofsky’s input, that the studio panicked.

“It was the first time I worked on a Batman project with somebody whose vision of Batman was darker than mine. My Batman was too nice for him. We would argue about it, and I’d say, ‘Batman wouldn’t do that, he wouldn’t torture anybody,’ and so on. We hashed out a screenplay, and we were wonderfully compensated, but then Warner Bros. read it and said, ‘We don’t want to make this movie.’ The executive wanted to do a Batman he could take his kids to. And this wasn’t that. It didn’t have the toys in it. The Batmobile was just a tricked-out car. And Batman turned his back on his fortune to live a street life so he could know what people were going through. He built his own Batcave in an abandoned part of the subway. And he created Batman out of whole cloth to fight crime and a corrupt police force.”

I’d pay good coin for THAT.

There’s more in this interview…

Loved this quote: “nybody who thinks Batman was fascist should study their politics. The Dark Knight, if anything, would be a libertarian. The fascists tell people how to live. Batman just tells criminals to stop.”

It’s a good read. He’s surprisingly humble about his past mistakes and projects that did or didn’t live up to potential.
