Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has won the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Online Sensation, in the 35th Annual People’s Choice Awards, beating out other such online sensations as “Paris Hilton’s response to McCain ad”. In the other geeky categories, Heroes nabbed the spot for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show, Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman got favorite superhero, and Christian and Heath beat out Harrison and Shia for Favorite On Screen Match Up. The Dark Knight beat out Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Iron Man for both favorite movie and favorite action movie.
Both Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and The Clone Wars have been honored with Razzie nominations for Worst Prequel, Sequel, Remake or Rip-Off. I doubt either will take it – Meet the Spartans is also up. But you never know!
Disney gives Narnia the boot. Well, it’s official – Disney has decided not to adapt the third Narnia book, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, for “budgetary and logistical reasons.” (Prince Caspian wasn’t exactly a flop, but it didn’t take in nearly as much as Lion.) That’s not to say all is lost – Walden Media is shopping around for a new partner.
Really do hope that Dawn Treader gets made – I can take or leave the rest of the series, but it’s my favorite. In the meantime, you can find the old BBC productions pretty cheap on DVD. The production values may not be as good, but I thought they were pretty neat as a kid!
- Wishful thinking. This fanmade Thundercats movie trailer, starring Brad Pitt, Hugh Jackman, Vin Diesel and Chiana from Farscape swept the internet on Monday. It mostly makes me hope for an end to this 80’s cartoon movie trend…
- Fun stuff. The How I Met Your Mother teamed up for Entertainment Weekly for a Best of 2008 photoshot, including Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Neil Patrick Harris makes a better Indy than you might think!
- Let’s not forget about Twilight. The Golden Compass’ Chris Weitz will direct New Moon; Bitch on the books; Robert Pattinson cuts his hair! Oh noes!
- The rest of the garbage. Keanu Reeves wants to star in Cowboy Bebop movie; Frank Miller aims to whore up Buck Rodgers; Baz Luhrmann’s Great Gatsby?
I know I’m not along in facepalming every time the man talks about Indy IV – and I swear, I was mildly entertained by Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – but he’s doing it again. Luckily, Coming Soon also asks him about Star Wars 3-D (don’t hold your breath,) Red Tails (in casting,) Samuel L. Jackson (we’ve heard it) and directing, to which:
I’m getting rid of all my development. Everything that I’ve ever developed is going to be finished in about a year, a year and a half or two, and then I’m going to go do my own films.
Oh, George. Perhaps Clark will finally get an answer on those Howard the Duck sequels.
In less winceworthy news, how about his student film? Racecars! Vroom vroom! Yeah!
Using the web to its fullest potential, an online poster for the upcoming Terminator: Salvation has appeared on aintitcool.com.
Appearing at this past weekend’s Firefly con in Burbank, QMX has released a double-sided map of the ‘Verse for Firefly/Serenity fans: Where in the ‘Verse is (Carmen) Miranda?
And some British archaeologists search for the facts while watching the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull DVD.
