More Star Trek Posters Hit – This Time, They’re Moody!

Set the lights down low for this pair of character posters from JJ Abrams’ “reimagining” of the Star Trek franchise.

Once again, I’m still not sure the mood they’re aiming for with this new version of Trek, and these new posters throw me off even more, considering how just a few weeks ago, Abrams’ was telling Entertainment Weekly that they were going for a “positive, uplifting” version of the space-saga.

Guess we’ll see when Star Trek hits screens on May 8th.

Chuck: After the Super Bowl…IN 3D!

To help clean out the bad taste of the last post, how about some Chuck news?

*crickets*

Ok…Ok. I understand.

Well, I’m excited, anyway!

Here’s the deal.  Chuck, aka the best show you’re apparently not watching on Monday nights, gets to share the post-Super Bowl spot on February 1st with The Office.

As if that wasn’t enough reason to keep your TV on NBC after the two teams pummel each other for America’s affection, the episode will be in 3-D!!!

No word on the number of teenagers who will experience manhood upon the three-dimentional visage of Sarah.

Mignola’s Going Batty Over Baltimore!

I know a certain someone who’s going to love reading about this…

While it’s ultimately a footnote in an interview exploring Mignola’s excitement over the Hellboy II DVD, what’s coming up for him comic wise, and he and his daughter’s conflicting opinions of Twilight, Mignola does make special mention of his forthcoming film project with David Goyer (Batman Begins, Blade III).

The catch? It’s an old school vampire flick. Here’s what Mikey had to say.

I prefer an old-school vampire. I co-wrote an old-shcool vampire novel with Christopher Golden [called Baltimore, or The Steadfast Tin Soldier and the Vampire], and we’ve been struggling with a screen adaptation of it. We’re trying to make an old school vampire movie. But the problem is that if nobody’s made one in the last five years – nobody wants to make one.

Ooh. What Up, TERMINATOR SALVATION Production Art?

Allow me if you will to share my opinion on the Terminator series.

The Terminator: Awesome
Terminator 2: Judgement Day: All Time Classic
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines: Never bothered watching.
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles:  Found the pilot boring, but I hear it’s gotten much much better.

In any case, I’ve been pretty reserved about Terminator Salvation.  But now that I’ve seen some of the production images (in the video linked below), combined with seeing Christian Bale as the lead…I’m…slight more optimistic?

Either way, I’m hoping it’s good. Because as it stands right now, after Summer 2008 being so kick ass, all I’ve really got to look forward to in ’09 is Up and Harry Potter 6.
