In a lateral move that is akin to a car company selling buggy whips, MovieTickets.com will start selling movie tickets through an Xbox 360 interface, thereby allowing players to experience a thing called “real life” and perhaps take part in a common courtship ritual known as a “date.”
As you see from the description, you don’t actually buy the movie tickets via the interface but instead are… → Read More
We spent two posts covering the announcement of the fourth installment of the Resident Evil movie series last summer, and today we can give you the first five pictures and some plot details.

What is it with these Predators? Don’t they have anything else to do besides hunting and killing human beings? Don’t they have some kind of Predator opera to go to or Predator literature to create? Anyway, this is the trailer for Predators that we’ve been waiting for and it looks pretty cornhole. You know it’s going to be a rough movie when 90% of the trailer dialogue is… → Read More
In case you needed another indicator Hollywood has run out of ideas, here is a new one for you: Atari is about to sell the movie rights to Missile Command, a shooting game that hit arcades back in 1980, to 20th Century Fox and another movie production company.
Getting the license doesn’t necessarily mean we ever get to see a Missile Command movie on the big screen, but a first step has been made. → Read More
The right merchandise can turn a movie into a mega movie franchise. A movie licensing industry that accounts for 25% of all toys sold in a typical year, the right toys, video games, clothing, accessories, iPhone apps, and action figures can rake in the serious bucks. Numbers released last week for “Transformers 2″ show that the movie led to toy sales worth $592 million only six months… → Read More
Teenage movie sensations Twilight and New Moon have grossed over $1 billion at box offices worldwide so far (New Moon is still in theaters), and both movies have proven to be extremely successful in the world’s second biggest movie market, Japan, too. That’s perhaps the reason why the second movie (New Moon) gets a special treatment in this country, namely a huge and Japan-only DVD premium box. → Read More

This is a crazy fun demo of the new Avatar toys by Mattel. Each toy includes a little card that is scannable via webcam and creates an on-screen augmented reality robot or character. While this is old hat for most of us, Mattel is quite proud of being ahead of the curve and for good reason. You can see more demos at AvatarItag.com.
In what could be a first for us I’m going to talk about G-Force, the new Jerry Bruckheimer Disney movie. To be clear: this is a movie for kids. I have a kid. So I saw it. Anyway. Where to begin: this is a movie about guinea pigs with special powers who can talk and fight against forces that will destroy our great nation. In this movie they fight against a nefarious consumer electronics maker… → Read More
First, let me say the movie “Robo-geisha” is for real (see the imdb entry). Second, I rarely use the word “weird” when I blog about Japanese stuff, but the trailer for this film is weird (and thankfully in English). And third, the trailer is NSFW and definitely not suitable for children. → Read More
In one word: Amazing. J.J. Abrams did a phenomenal job that appeals to both new and old fans of the sci-fi series. You will not be disappointed. I have a man crush on James Tiberius Kirk. → Read More
Andrew Disney’s “Searching for Sonny” hopes to be the first feature film shot entirely with a Canon 5d Mark II. If the teaser trailer is any indication of things to come then Disney might have an indie film worth watching. According to his Vimeo page, cameraman Jeffrey Waldron mostly used a Nikon 50mm lens for the teaser with a Canon body. A full trailer shot with the Canon 5d Mark II is… → Read More

Any Apple fanbois in the crowd going to see this wherever it’s released in the fall? Assuming it will make it into theaters. This whole “Cult of Mac” is rather intriguing, but makes me wonder why these people flock to a company the way they do. It’s really weird. → Read More
In a move that could start a new wave in PC sales, Dell and Paramount Pictures today announced that they have signed a joint venture that will see “Iron Man” come pre-loaded on Dell computers for anyone who wishes to order the unit.
The general public enjoys Guitar Hero, Brett. They don’t want you butchering another pop culture icon like you did with the last X-Men movie, douchebag. “I love ‘Guitar Hero’ and I think it’s a part of pop culture. I would love to do a ‘Guitar Hero’ movie, if Activision would ever let me. I’m trying to convince them, but why would you have a movie screw up such a huge… → Read More

Capcom is releasing Street Fighter IV in 2009, which is the 20th anniversary of the game.
