Lex Luthor Needs Your Cash, America!

As the financial crisis continues to get worse, it seems every company in the world is being hit.

If this video is true, the Economic issues we’ve been dealing with has even expanded into the fictional world.

Here to share his plight is Lexcorp‘s own Lex Luthor (as played by the devastatingly handsome Jon Hamm).

Give a little, won’t you America?

So apparently this image is going up and down across the internet today.

Remembering what happened when I posted the image of Two Face in The Dark Knight early, I figure I’ll have some fun on here again.

That image above? That’s the first look at Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s version of Alice In Wonderland. Really.

Where does this come from, you ask?

Walt Disney had their annual meeting on Tuesday, to hype future releases.  During this 2 hour meeting, you had the first look at Alice, a 3D screening of Up, and the first footage of Toy Story 3, described as “jaw-droppingly good”.  Sounds rad.

The part that kinda sucks?  The media was told that they couldn’t release the above image. Why couldn’t they? Well, the big D is releasing a fancy $16 quarterly mag called Disney Twenty-Three, which has the first look at Alice as an exclusive.

Guess this is someone else’s whoops.

A First Look At Tony Stark’s House From IRON MAN 2!


So, Iron Man director Jon Favreau hopped on twitter.

And Jon being the sharing guy he is, decided to post a pic.

What of, you may ask?  The currently in-construction house for Tony Stark in Iron Man 2!

Sure, we’re not sure who the villains are, the script may not be finished yet, but it’s good to know they’re working on getting everything else ready for the Summer 2010 release.

Am I the only one who’s kinda surprised that they destroy sets so fast, then rebuild them almost identically to the one prior?  You’d think they’d leave these things ready to rebuild.  Go figure.

If you’re looking to follow Jonny Fav on Twitter, he’s @jon_favreau.  I’ll say this…if he starts updating from the Iron Man 2 set as often as Edgar Wright’s been updating from the Scott Pilgrim set…I’ll be doing a LOT of posting!

New iPod Shuffle is SUPER WEE!

I think I’m officially an old man, as I’m now totally stunned by how small and how powerful mp3 players can be.

The new iPod Shuffle was revealed today, and it’s probably the tiniest one yet, with a 4GB storage capacity (at just $80).  As you can see from the photo above, there are no buttons on the Shuffle, with nary a design to be seen on the product.  Essentially, the player has been reduced to a plastic clip.

So, how do you control it?  2 ways.  One, the integrated controls on the new Apple headphones (first seen with the most recent iPod Touch & iPhone revisions), and the other, more interesting way is…IT TALKS TO YOU.

That’s right, using what’s called VoiceOver, the shuffle reads off track titles and playlist titles, so you know what’s about to play. Honesty, based on the samples on Apple’s site, it’s just the basic MacSpeak voice, which interrupts the first few seconds of the song.  Me thinks that it’s going to divide and irriate fans.

Either way, I look forward to the next revision of the iPod Shuffle, which is just a pair of earbuds.  You know it’s coming.
