Looking forward to Game of Thrones, but at this point I'm not holding out hope it'll be that great.

Also, talk about a shitty week for new movies.

Congrats to all (cough Fincher should have won for sure cough).

08) Not yet confirmed but looking likely, Trent Reznor will score and act in the film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
So good.

09) The third Bridget Jones book is currently in the works and the third film will be scripted alongside it though they may not be identical.
I wonder if Colin Firth will come back since the Oscar.

11) If you havenít already heard Diane Lane will play Martha Kent in the new Superman movie.
Odd casting.

12) Tim Allen and Tom Hanks will reunite this time in live action movie Jungle Cruise from Disney.
Will watch. I love them both.

13) Want to show you know trailers? Want to show off them skills? Well Sony is giving you the chance in a contest to make your own trailer for their upcoming movie Priest.
O rly? (Will definitely try to do this.)

19) The Farrelly Brothers, well Bobby Farrelly says that heíd like to do a Dumb and Dumber sequel with Jim Carry and Jeff Daniels reprising the roles. He also talks about The Three Stooges adaptation they start filming in 2 months saying itíll be much different for them as they wish to stay true to the the original material. "probably be a lot less typically Farrelly brothers stuff, we're going to be as true as we can to the spirit of The Three Stooges Ė they weren't raunchy or outrageous, they were more about the slapstick, almost vaudeville-type humour. It'll probably be less us, more of them."
Are they ignoring the one that came out a few years ago?

21) Itís looking like Tarantino will finally make a western movie and looking at Christoph Waltz for a major role. So far itís said to be called The Angel, the Bad and the Wise.
Will be totally sweet. Christoph Waltz is so awesome.

Television
03) Elizabeth Hurley will play the evil villain in Wonder Woman.
Naturally. If she was tanner and younger, she could have PLAYED Wonder Woman.

05) CBS has ordered two more seasons of How I Met Your Mother.
Legen-wait for it.

Jason Segel told GQ last summer he wants to leave next after next year so I hope someone either changes his mind or they wrap it up.

I finished updating this on saturday morning thinking it was gonna be released around then. Stayillogical and Thomas were probably busy so it just got delayed being posted until today. It happens.

But yes, you're right that's huge news. And the pretentious scumbag deserved to be fired.

I like this coming out during weekdays. Monday mornings seem like a better time.

After Two and a Half Men went down in flames, it has to take over as the flagship show. Wouldn't be surprised if Big Bang Theory got a ton more promotion as well.
