Daft Punk Calls It Quits

Daft Punk Break Up | Pitchfork:

Daft Punk, the Parisian duo responsible for some of the most popular dance and pop songs ever made, have split. They broke the news with an 8-minute video titled “Epilogue,” excerpted from their 2006 film Electroma. Asked if Daft Punk were no more, their longtime publicist Kathryn Frazier confirmed the news to Pitchfork but gave no reason for the breakup.

An absolute heartbreaker for a Monday morning.

Here’s the announcement video.

I’ve got a lot of feelings about this, as Daft Punk as an act always seemed to match my tastes both musically and visually.

While I process those thoughts, I’m going to share Interstella 5555, which I’ve always thought was their magnum opus, matching their amazing album Discovery with 70’ throwback animation.

The R-Rated MORTAL KOMBAT Reboot Trailer Has Arrived

MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan) is unaware of his heritage – or why Outworld’s Emperor seeks to hunt him down. Cole finds sanctuary under Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano) and prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high-stakes battle for the universe. Will Cole be able to unleash his arcana in time to stop the Outworld once and for all?

This looks super fun. Considering it hits HBO Max in April, I will absolutely give it a spin.


Tim Burton to Bring WEDNESDAY ADDAMS To Netflix

Wednesday Addams Live-Action Series Set at Netflix – Variety:

A Wednesday Addams live-action series has been ordered at Netflix, Variety has learned.

The project was first reported as being in development back in October, though no network or streamer was attached at that time. Netflix has given the coming-of-age series an eight episode order.

Based on the character originally created by Charles Addams, “Wednesday” is a young adult TV series described as a a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. She attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.

The previous rumors are confirmed.

I guess this will be like the recently ended Sabrina series, but with Addams Family characters?

The Movie Worlds of Superman ’78 and Batman ’89 Are Heading to Comics in Two All-New DC Digital First Series! | DC:

Beginning in July 2021, decades after both Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie and Tim Burton’s Batman introduced generations of fans to silver screen versions of DC’s Man of Steel and the World’s Greatest Detective, DC is returning to these beloved properties to tell new stories set within these worlds with the publication of a series of Superman ’78 and Batman ’89 comic books. Writer Rob Venditti and artist Wilfredo Torres will capture imaginations in Superman ’78 while screenwriter Sam Hamm and artist Joe Quinones will immerse readers into Batman ’89.

Very excited for this. Joe Quinones posted about his pitch for this very same idea back in 2016, and I’m very glad to see it come to life.

The other bit which has me stoked? Look at these character designs!

Yep, that Bruce Wayne is what you think it is.
