Batgirl & "The Dark Knight"

Oh how the rumors are flying! As "The Dark Knight" draws closer, little bits and pieces of info keep popping up. Most of them I have absorbed with an air of quiet disinterest. Sure, I totally want to see this movie. I'm super excited about it. But trailers and posters and stills (oh my!) don't really do it for me. This does.

Prince of Persia + E3 + Sigur Ros?!

I'm not sure what's more shocking, the fact that "Saeglopur" by Icelandic atmospheric superstars Sigur Ros is featured in the trailer for the next gen version of "Prince of Persia" or that fanboys/girls are generally really digging the jam. Either way, this trailer looks beautiful and I will most certainly be picking this up when it comes out. As long as the action stays more on the actual action and less on the fairy magic side, I think I'll be quite pleased.

Before I watched Slaughtered Vomit Dolls, I had a tuna fish sandwich and some macaroni and cheese.

By the end, it was all over my shirt and was now caked and drying.

Horror Headlines 9/16/08

"Lost Planet", the third person shooter for the XBOX 360, is being adapted into a feature film. It's being written by David Hayter, who penned the original "X-Men" as well as the upcoming "Watchmen". The main crux of the game is that you're stuck on a frozen planet, and instead of energy you have "heat" you have to maintain in order to stay alive. The film is being co-financed by Warner Bro's and Capcom.

I seem to remember mentioning a "Night of the Demons" remake a while back. Well, it turns out it's true and now they have three hot female stars. Diora Baird, Shannon Elizabeth and Monica Keena have all been tapped (that's what she said?) to star in the remake of Kevin Tenny's rock and roll demon flick from the 80's. This version will be directed by Adam Geirasch.

I've never heard of this video game "Dead Space", but when I'm told that the trailer for the game was BANNED IN THE US, well now you've got my attention. Check the banned trailer at the link.

I've endured the "Halloween" remake and I'm even being won over by the idea of a "Friday the 13th" remake, but now they've gone too far. Paramount has bought the remake rights to 80's classic "Monster Squad", and Rob Cohen is producing. As I look back at at Cohen's IMDB, I see that he did actually produce the original film, as well as "The Witches of Eastwick", so I guess this isn't all bad. Of course, he also directed "xXx: State of the Union" and "Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor", so I'm not totally sure that we're out of the woods yet.

In Real People News: 

I'm not sure what's crazier about this story, that a woman left her sex offender brother home alone with her 5 month old bulldog, or that the writer says he used the bulldog to masturbate. Is that a PC euphemism that means he banged the dog? Or did he come up with some shit that I can't quite wrap my brain around? The world may never know.

Gangsters in Los Angeles are now using bicycles for drive-bys. And apparently, the police couldn't catch the suspects in this latest incident. Hey, at least they're being environmentally friendly, right?

On this day in history: 

1945: First Atomic Bomb is exploded at Trinity, Alamagordo New Mexico. The explosion yields the equivalent 18,000 tons of TNT.

The Florida Files: Volume 1

I've been thinking about doing this on the site for a while now, and I finally got off my ass today and did a little research. I call this, "The Florida Files". It's sort of like an extension of my "real news" that I do every day, since approximately 1/3rd of the stories I do come from here anyways. So, here's what you've been missing out on.
