Jon Favreau says his new film "Cowboys and Aliens" actually has some horror tossed in there despite the trailers not really showing much to make you believe this. He then made a bunch of "Swingers" references, said "Vegas Baby, Vegas" and did some swing dancing. That guy just won't let it go.
Good news nerds! Jeri Ryan isn't dead. In fact she's landed the role of Sonya in the the upcoming "Mortal Kombat" web series, which apparently is a role she's played before. Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Cher all tried out for the role but Mrs. Ryan landed it. Congrats! I'm completely BSing about everything except her being alive and getting the part.
Here's a new poster and some stills from the upcoming Australian shark flick titled "The Reef". Honestly I think most of these are just screen grabs from shark week but still they look pretty cool. Sharks = awesome. That's math folks, look it up in a book or something.
Ever wonder what would of happened if Victor Frankenstein's journal got into the hands of the Nazis during World War 2? Sure, we all have. Well ladies and gentlemen I give you the trailer for "Frankenstein's Army" which finally answers your questions. At least I think it does, the trailer plays more like some weird German art student's final project. I think I saw a monkey painting a landscape on a horse. Weird stuff man.

"I was just growing some marijuana and I was just wondering what, how much trouble you can get in for one plant." A valid question sure, but not one you want to be asking a 911 operator. Good news though, the Connecticut man now knows the answer to that question because the cops came to his house to tell him.
And here's a Detroit area man who's being brought up on charges after playing pocket pool outside of a church. On top of that this guy's toupee is insane, like taking out your wang outside of a church insane.
Most of us at one point in our life have played Cowboys and Indians. Hell, just the other week, we played it at the office. But it was missing... something. Something to make it exciting. Indians are cool and all, and their burial grounds provide endless fodder for horror stories, but what if they were replaced with something a bit more bad ass..... LIKE ALIENS!!!!!
J.J. Abrams has set the internet on fire once again as details for his next film "Super 8" begin to surface. Focused on a group of teens shooting a film on a Super 8 camera in the 70's or 80's, they find a nasty surprise when they finally get the film developed. Early speculation marks "Super 8" as a possible prequel to "Cloverfield".
The Spierig brothers, who last brought us the vampire thriller "Daybreakers", have signed on for a surprising new project; the boys plan on bringing us "Power of the Dark Crystal", a belated sequel to "The Dark Crystal"! Early reports state that they will continue with a mix of puppetry and live action actors, so Andy Serkis can turn his 3D motion capture device back off.
Sam Rockwell adds to his already varied resume as he signs on for Jon Favreau's comic book adaptation "Cowboys Vs. Aliens". Playing an old west bartender signing on to fight the little green men, this just further proves that I'll watch anything Sam Rockwell does, I don't really care what they cast him as.

During this past weekend's Free Comic Book day, a shop customer decided to change the rules a bit as he lifted a $150 copy of the X-Men Omnibus into his backpack. Thankfully, nerds will be nerds as the thief was detained by Spider Man as two Jedi Knights blocked the front doors of the shop.
Police were brought in to contain a drunken patron in a local KFC. When asked to identify himself, the drunken man stated "my name is Cheesy Beef Burrito". All while chewed food dribbled down his chin.
