A KICK-ASS Look At Big Daddy!

kickass-bigdaddy

God damnit, didn’t I just say this about Iron Man 2?

If you keep releasing posters, there’s not much more to say about the film aside from “this looks cool, it comes out on [date], click for big.”

I mean, they need to give us something substantial, like foota–

Oh, they did?

Oh snap! Click play below for an age-restricted (read: probably NWS) clip from Kick-Ass to go with the above character poster for Nicholas Cage as Big Daddy.

All blogger snark aside, the good word on Kick-Ass continues to grow after a very successful showing as part of Aint it Cool News’ annual Butt Numb A Thon, and this clip adds to my hope that it’s going to be the first real surprise of 2010.

Kick-Ass hits theaters April 16, 2010.

AWESOME! First L4D2 DLC = L4D1! Sorta.

Ever since Left 4 Dead 2 was announced this past spring at E3, I’ve hoped that there would be a way for the original cast to get involved in the zombie-killin’ fun of the sequel.

Well, the time has arrived. Or at least, will arrive in the Spring, with the first Left 4 Dead 2 downloadable content pack, titled The Passing.

Set after the last campaign from the original Left 4 Dead, and before the first campaign of Left 4 Dead 2, The Passing brings both casts together for a bout of undead fighthin’ in a small town in rural Georgia.

If the return of Zoey, Bill, Francis and Louis wasn’t enough reason to get excited, the DLC pack will also bring a new weapon and a new zombie type to the game, which was already pretty stocked in both.

The Passing will be available for both 360 and PC users, with no announced price, yet.

Downey & Zach Heading To Make a DUE DATE

Timed perfectly to go with today’s release on home video of The Hangover (more on that in today’s Awesome-O-Rama update), the interweb has brought us the first look at director Todd Phillips’ next flick, Due Date.

I’m unsure of the source of this screenshot (looks like a magazine scan of some type), but it shows the flick’s two leads Zach Galfinakis and Robert Downey Jr. in the midst of some type of hijinx. Yeah, Galifinakis and Downey. All this movie needs is an extended appearance by Patton Oswalt, and I’d have a raging nerd boner all the way to the theater.

One thing the flick HAS done, however, is reunite Downey with his Kiss Kiss Bang Bang costar Michelle Monaghan. Which also makes me super happy, as Kiss Kiss Bang Bang would rank high on my best of the 00’s list.

Due Date, which has Zach as a wannabe actor escorting Downey cross-country to arrive at his child’s birth, is due to hit theaters sometime next year.

The Coolest Looking PC. EVER.

Unfortunately, it’s not real. Yet.

This stunning Windows 7 PC is a concept offering designed by Dave Schultze, and it’s absolutely beautiful, as silly as a comment as that is to say with a computer.

Mixing 50’s form with an almost steampunk function (check out those sweet keyboard keys), you have a  computer that if it were real, I’d buy it in a heartbeat.  Especially considering how much my Windows desktop is crapping out at home.

Either way, it’s not a real computer you can buy, but given the hype this design has seen across the web in the past 24 hours, hopefully someone hires this guy to make these dreams a reality.

New TOY STORY 3 Image Makes Me Wonder…

toy-story-3

Straight from the magic makers of Pixar is this latest still from 2010’s Toy Story 3.

This so called “full cast” shot shows the cast looking over their new ‘home’, the pre-school which Andy donates them to, as he’s headed to college.

One question though…where the heck is Bo-Peep?! AND WHAT HAPPENED TO MRS. POTATO HEAD’S EYE?!

All this and more will be answered when Toy Story 3 hits theaters on June 18th.

As always (if I have big enough, that is), click for high-rez.
