Tenacious D Does The “Time Warp”

It’s astounding… time is fleeting… and the 2020 election is here. Time to ROCK-Y THE VOTE! And remember: it’s just a jump to the LEFT, and not a step to the right!

An absolutely perfect cover. Seventeen-Year-Old Me is losing his mind over this.

I’d kinda be into Tenacious D covering the entire Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack?

Netflix Signs Deal to Launch ASSASSIN’S CREED TV Series

‘Assassin’s Creed’ Live-Action TV Series in the Works at Netflix | Hollywood Reporter:

Another massive video game franchise is getting the TV treatment.

Netflix and Ubisoft are teaming to bring Assassin’s Creed to television and will develop a slate of properties based on the best-selling game. The first project under the pact is a live-action, genre-bending adaptation of the game. A search is under way for a showrunner for the project, which is currently in the development stages.

Honestly, the television format is way better for Assassin’s Creed than the movie format.

They could easily change assassins and eras season by season to freshen up the show, which I know is sort of Netflix’s want to keep things new and different.

An interesting note here, though…

The deal for Assassin’s Creed will also see Netflix and Ubisoft mine the game’s trove of stories for other live-action, animated and anime series based on the global franchise.

So, it sounds like this is just the beginning for the franchise.

Netflix Reveals George Clooney’s THE MIDNIGHT SKY

Our humanity always endures.

This post-apocalyptic tale follows Augustine (George Clooney), a lonely scientist in the Arctic, as he races to stop Sully (Felicity Jones) and her fellow astronauts from returning home to Earth, where a mysterious global catastrophe has taken place. Clooney directs the adaptation of Lily Brooks-Dalton’s acclaimed novel Good Morning, Midnight, co-starring David Oyelowo, Kyle Chandler, Demián Bichir and Tiffany Boone. Coming to Netflix December 23rd.

Call it Interstellar-light, I call it my most anticipated movie for the end of the year.

This looks great.

Here, have a poster, too.

 

And now to check out the book it’s based on…

Marvel Taps Oscar Isaac To Star in ‘Moon Knight’ Series’ – Deadline:

With his time in the Star Wars franchise coming to an end, Oscar Isaac now sets his sights on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Deadline is hearing he is in negotiations to star as Moon Knight in the Marvel and Disney+ series based on the comic book hero.

Jeremy Slater, who developed and wrote Netflix’s comic book adaptation of the Umbrella Academy series, has been tapped to develop and lead the writing team on the series for the streamer.

Oh fuck yeah.

I sure hope this is at least partially based on He Who Won’t Be Named’s run on the series, if not Jeff Lemire’s.

Sony Delays PS5 Launch Title Destruction AllStars to February, Makes It Free to PS Plus Members

Destruction AllStars coming to PlayStation Plus in February – PlayStation.Blog:

Hi everyone – we wanted to share a quick update on our plans for Destruction AllStars. We’ve decided to move the game’s release from November 2020 to February 2021, where it will be included for two months in PlayStation Plus at no additional cost.

Destruction AllStars is a multiplayer game that’s at its best when you’re competing with gamers online from all around the world. We want as many people as possible to experience the mayhem on PS5, and what better way to do that than to provide the game to our PlayStation Plus members?

I think the PS5 is going to be plenty hard to get this year, so for a game based on multiplayer, this is a wise move.

I know that at least personally, I thought the game looked intriguing, so with the option as a PlayStation Plus member to get it “free”, that’s a total win.
