damn, i thought the Muppets update said Christopher Walken was going to be the villain. i got excited, but then i looked again and it said Christoph Waltz... oh well.

stayillogical 11/04/12 01:37 PM

I can't recommend Silver Linings Playbook enough. Surprised at how much I laughed. Really loved it, still thinking about it and can't wait to watch again.

shwaz499 11/04/12 01:39 PM

loving the suits mention. most underrated show on television. also, i can't help but be extremely intrigued by this boy meets world sequel thing. favorite show as a kid... just reading the name fills me with so much freaking nostalgia it hurts a little.

Christoph Waltz should not be disappointing to hear though...I do agree that Christopher Walken would have been cool.

Haha yes, I can't wait for it to come back. January is getting close! Louis Litt is seriously one of my favorite tv characters, the show is so entertaining.

Inglourious Basterds. It's a must watch. Just the first 15 min and you'll get why he's a terrific villain.

echostem 11/04/12 01:49 PM

Girl Meets World? We've ruined enough of my childhood cartoons so now we're moving on to live action?

Too true, a highly underrated actor.

If they do it right (doubtful I know) it will be a huge benefit to kids. That show had a spirit that no kids shows have anymore.

rollerman4221 11/04/12 02:01 PM

"As long as we still have Suits..."

truer words have never been said

Michael Jacobs would have to most likely be on board, otherwise they might try too hard and ruin it.

Aneurisms07 11/04/12 02:29 PM

GIRL MEETS WORLD?! COREY AND TOPANGA?! BEN SAVAGE AND DANIELLE FISHEL?!

I literally just screamed out loud at my computer. They better not tarnish Boy Meets World. What about Shawn, Eric, Mr. Feeny? Ugh this hurts...

ugman_2000 11/04/12 02:32 PM

Loving the Suits love on hear, probably my 2nd favourite show on tv nowadays (Community is still 1st) The character realtionships on Suits are so good

theintention 11/04/12 02:36 PM

Just saw that there is a trailer for G.I Joe 2.... The fuck, wasn't that already released? I could have sworn I saw a TV spot for it.

Also, fuck Girl Meets World. Disney is ruining my life lately.

stayillogical 11/04/12 02:36 PM

Haha, all the Suits talk and there wasn't even any Suits news. Look at what I started, love it. Hope anyone who's not watching yet decides to catch up.

WishYouAway 11/04/12 02:48 PM

I thought it was pretty clear from the start Political Animals was a miniseries, not a show to be cancelled.

Also, I'd like to echo the thoughts above that Suits is fucking awesome.

From the various articles I read, they had the option of continuing the show but passed on it. So it could have been renewed.

nowFace 11/04/12 02:58 PM

Holy shit Sin City 2 JUST began filming. I feel that movie has been in limbo forever, and very excited to hear about the Myth Buster/ BB segments.

Goat01 11/04/12 03:07 PM

John Dies at the End was a fantastic book, been waiting for a while for some news for that.
And as long as USA keeps Psych, everything will be okay.

Djentleman 11/04/12 03:09 PM

no Arrested Development updates no care

sammyboy516 11/04/12 03:24 PM

Don't even care what anyone thinks, I'm so stoked for Girl Meets World.

Zummy 11/04/12 04:31 PM

I do not like the idea of another Bryan Singer X-Men movie. The X-men movies he did sucked and so did Superman Returns.

Wow.

CastlesXClouds 11/04/12 05:26 PM

the new xmen is going to suck so much fucking dick.

fothermucker 11/04/12 06:01 PM

- Christoph Waltz in The Muppets sequel is fantastic news.
- Hopefully Community returning in February actually happens, and doesn't get pushed again.
- Saoirse Ronan in a Wes Anderson movie could be awesome!

I love Matthew Vaughn a lot, and I'm a bit disappointed to see him go for Days of Future Past, I'm a bit excited to see what Singer can do again, X-Men & X2 are some fantastic movies. Fuck haters.

rollerman4221 11/04/12 07:23 PM

I dont know how the Muppets sequel will turn out, specifically with Segel

EchoPark 11/04/12 08:28 PM

44 year old Jackman is looking ripped as Wolverine.

The Rock gave him some advice on bulking up and he was allegedly eating 6000 calories a day

Stormsubsides 11/04/12 08:53 PM

How had no one made mention of a 7th Star Wars in this thread yet? I'm ashamed of all of you, I'm upset that it will however blow...I hope I'm wrong.

underthetalking 11/04/12 09:06 PM

03) Jamie Foxx is in talks to play Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

lol wut?

05) Disney is planning a Boy Meets World sequel, titled Girl Meets World, focused on Cory and Topanga’s preteen daughter.

They are going to fuck this up so bad.

I'm actually more hopeful for this than I was for the prequels. I'm stupid excited for it. Disney has done a great job with established franchises (see: Marvel movies) and as sad as it is, Lucas was probably the series' own worst enemy.

You are crazy. The Nightcrawler scene at the beginning of X-Men 2 was incredible.

drewbaldy 11/05/12 06:49 AM

Star Wars is in good hands. The short list of directors for episode 7 is very exciting.

I love Jamie Foxx, but not as Electro. Especially because of the fact that the guy who portrayed Electro in the scene at the end of The Amazing Spider-Man looked nothing like Jamie Foxx.

Though I'd prefer Matthew Vaughn I will except Brian Singer.

V/H/S 2 could be cool.

Spencer Control 11/05/12 07:13 AM

I like John Cusack a lot.

Also, Jamie Foxx as Electro? Please no. Please, please no.

This. Saw a screening last week and loved it. I was really surprised how much I liked Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Laurence.
