Those X-MEN Sure Do Get Around..

x-menrelationships

Wow, this might be one of the most OCD things I’ve ever seen on the internet.

Some brave soul(s?) decided to catalog, by way of map, the entire romantic history of the X-Men.

I do have to wonder, with all this romance going around, do you think any mutant based STDs came up?

What Is PAUL? They’re Starting To Let Us Know!

Finally, after months of rumors and speculation, the next Simon Pegg/Nick Frost team up, the Greg Mottola (Superbad, Adventureland) directed Paul is in production here in the US.

The plot thus far seems to be built around 2 British Geeks (played by Frost & Pegg, of course) who travel across the US and end up befriending a Space Alien, the titular Paul.

I’ve talked about it before here, but now the official site is up, and it seems that Pegg & Frost are following the lead of their colleague Edgar Wright’s Scott Pilgrim coverage, by launching a site full of video blogs and exclusive pictures.

I’ve embedded the introductory video above, but be sure to click through to view photos that Simon took at rehearsals; a hysterical video as Pegg, Frost and co-star Kristen Wiig attempt to learn how to drive an RV; and a word from their co-star Joe Lo Truglio (The State) as he explains how Paul is going green.

I’m sure more interesting images and video will be coming soon, so I’ll keep an eye on the site and update you if/when something really stupendous hits the web.

Oh, Fuck You MTV – TEEN WOLF THE SERIES

Read that headline.

A few times.

MTV has greenlit a television adaptation of TEEN FUCKING WOLF.

TEEN WOLF. The 20 year old movie, Teen Wolf.

The Michael J. Fox/Jason Bateman (depending on which one) starring film series, that was a joke then, and has only grown as a joke as the years have gone on.

MT-fucking-V has decided that is a great television program to move forward with.

And check out this sweet quote!

MTV is also pondering a reinvention of ’80s film “Teen Wolf” in series format, with a greater emphasis on romance, horror and werewolf mythology.

OF COURSE, BECAUSE WHAT THE SILLY TEENAGE WEREWOLF SERIES NEEDS IS TO TAKE HORROR AND MYTHOLOGY SERIOUSLY.

I hate Hollywood, for as much as I love it.

Shocking Deleted Scenes From Jurassic Park!

Oh man! I had no idea the Dinosaurs were originally supposed to talk in Jurassic Park!

AMAZING!

Curse you, Steven Spielberg, for stealing this landmark achievement in reptiles in cinema from a starved movie going public.

Brütal Legend Box Art Is EFFIN’ METAL!

Fresh off the PR docket from Electronic Arts comes the cover art for this fall’s awesome Brutal Legend!

Rightly inspired by the metal album art that the game itself follows from, being a Heavy Metal fantasy-action RPG, this game art wouldn’t be too out of line being air-brushed on a van.

Makes me wish I had a sweet van.

Brutal Legend hits XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 on “Rocktober” 13th.
