Tron Legacy 2010 Trailer

July 31, 2009

While I admit to knowing absolutely nothing about the 80s movie “Tron.” This Disney remake slated for a 2010 release looks pretty spectacular. This is the definition of the type of movie you watch in Imax.

July 30, 2009

A new season of Heroes is upon us. It’s tough to tell from this trailer how promising it will be as the last couple years have been a hit or miss. But it’s safe to say the die hard fans will be tuned in every Monday night come September.

One of my favorite shows is finally coming back! HBO have announced that Curb Your Enthusiasm will return for a long-awaited seventh season on Sunday, September 20th. Also now confirmed are a few things that had been semi-uncertain about Season 7 up until now, including that Cheryl Hines will be back as Larry David’s wife (despite their split last season), while Vivica A. Fox and J.B. Smoove will also be back as the Blacks.

This season will also feature all four of the Seinfeld stars — Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Michael Richards – who will be appearing as themselves. Also guest starring are several returning Curb actors, including Ted Danson, Bob Einstein, Richard Lewis, and Mary Steenburgen, plus new guest stars Sharon Lawrence, Catherine O’Hara, Meg Ryan, Elisabeth Shue, Christian Slater and Sherry Stringfield.


Microsoft and Yahoo Team Up

Google better watch its back as Microsoft and Yahoo are teaming up resources to make Bing.com the biggest rival search engine competitor. Microsoft and Yahoo have agreed on a search and advertising partnership, potentially raising their joint search share to 25 percent of the market. What users will notice, however, is Yahoo switching to Bing’s search engine.

If you’re a frequent web searcher concerned with Google’s overwhelming hold on the market, this could be considered intriguingly helpful news. Bing’s gained a foothold as an up-and-comer, and has won plaudits for its eyeball friendliness, rapid feature deployment, and, well, a lot of people like those big home page pictures. Microsoft and Bing hold about 8.4 percent of the search market, according to last month’s ComScore research numbers, while Yahoo claimed 19.6 percent. Google continued to dominate with around 65 percent of search traffic.


Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer

July 27, 2009

A new trailer has been unveiled from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. This one shows off the customizable kill streaks, such as in this one the AC130.

You can immediately tell the graphics in the game are much improved and refined from COD 4.. something I wasn’t really expecting. The background and details are graphically beautiful and you can tell that its a very smooth framerate.

Can’t wait for this game to come out 11/10/09.

Comic Con 2009: Gears of War The Movie

July 26, 2009

Director Len Wiseman (Live Free or Die Hard) and writer Chris Morgan (Wanted) appeared at Epic Games’ Gears of War panel to discussing the upcoming feature film based on the popular videogame franchise. It was clear by the end of the hour-long panel that production on the Gears of War feature film was in the earliest stages. In fact, there’s been no casting and there were no production stills or conceptual art to offer. Still, Wiseman and Morgan spoke about their philosophy regarding the movie and the director dispelled a recent Internet rumor regarding casting of the lead role.

Despite what some may want to suggest, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is not being considered for Gears of War. “A Doom connection would not be smart for us,” Wiseman said bluntly. He spent a few minutes explaining his philosophy on finding a good action star and in the process slagged The Rock. Wiseman stated that the way to find the right person to play the lead role of Marcus Fenix is not to “throw a bunch of strongmen into the ring and see who comes out victorious… I’m looking for an actor for the role and then [I’ll] put him into shape.” He added, “I’m always thinking who could play the best Marcus. You want to get hooked into the character [first] and then all the amazing spectacle.”

While Wiseman nixed the idea of The Rock in Gears of War, he did agree to one speculative bit of casting. When asked about who might play the part of Maria, the doomed wife of second-in-command Dominic Santiago, Wiseman had one actress at the top of his wishlist. “If I can convince [Kate Beckinsale]–and I think I have a shot– I’d love to see that.”
