This is really good because I’m in dire need of a clean install on my Macbook Pro…

Warner just announced a bunch of new DC movies including Aquaman coming in 2018. That’s a long way away, so I’m asking the writers of that film now, please, please include a scene like the one in the Aquaman movie in Entourage. Please. You’re doing yourself and your audience a disservice if you don’t.

Here’s what was just announced:

  • Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice directed by Zack Snyder (2016)
  • Suicide Squad directed by David Ayer (2016) 
  • Wonder Woman starring Gal Gadot (2017)
  • Justice League Part One directed by Snyder, with Ben AffleckHenry Cavill and Amy Adams reprising their roles (2017)
  • The Flash starring Ezra Miller (2018)
  • Aquaman starring Jason Momoa (2018)
  • Shazam (2019)
  • Justice League Part Two directed by Zack Snyder (2019)
  • Cyborg starring Ray Fisher (2020)
  • Green Lantern (2020)

HBO is finally going to let you watch its shows without cable 


Tomorrowland - Teaser Trailer

Wow. WOW. 

Ok, I watched it three times. I’m not sure there is a more perfect Brad Bird movie to be made. I’m so, so happy that he’s making this movie. And based just on these 2 minutes, I think Tomorrowland is going to be huge.

How am I supposed to choose between these two?!! This should have been the final round. WTF.

EDIT: Ok, I took a breath and made a choice (it was difficult). You should go over to Dorkly and vote on your favorite. It’s a fun, albeit frustrating, game.

This is what happens when 911 fails 

Wireless carriers have a strong incentive to play down any 911 outages: no company wants be the one that fails to send emergency calls. The FCC, meanwhile, receives a steady stream of complaints from consumers, according to documents obtained by The Verge through a Freedom of Information Act request, and reserves enforcement for the most egregious infractions. Years into the slow demise of the landline and ubiquity of the smartphone, it seems, calling 911 on mobile is a much riskier move than from a wired phone.

Whoa. This article by Colin Lecher is crazy. I had no idea that this was a widespread issue.. 


The Truth about 1992:

It was John Stewart who patrolled Green Lantern: Mosaic. Guy Gardner was in his own series, no longer a Green Lantern but ring slinging with a yellow power ring. The title ran for 44 issues where Gardner would eventually give up the ring and realize his alien Vuldarian heritage to become a human weapon, Guy Gardner: Warrior.

Now for 2 Truths/1 Lie. The year is 1993! It’s BIG year for comics:

  • Superman died! … At least for 6 months. In January the showdown between Superman and Doomsday happened leaving Superman dead or so it appeared. It was June when “Reign of the Supermen” started. In the mean time and story titled “World Without a Superman” ran, in which Superman’s friends dealt with thinking they’d never see him again.
  • Bane broke Batman’s back! In the story Knightfall, Bane orchestrated the release of several Arkham Asylum inmates. With these rogues out on the streets of Gotham Batman was stretched thin, growing tired and weakening. Batman would eventually face Bane himself ending him with a broken back. In October, Azrael would take up the Batmantel and who would throw Robin to the curb into his own title.
  • Wonder Woman hung up her lasso! With her two Superhero pals either dead or out of commission, Wonder Woman said “to hell with this” and took some time to work on her poetry. The story would span 6 issues each with a classical greek poem that would rival the Odyssey. DC was so embarrassed over the decision of where they took the Wonder Woman title that they burned all the copies they could find. Even making it hard to Google these events.

Like everyone who was alive in 1993, I bought this book.

Interstellar - Trailer 3

This is the last trailer I’m going to watch for Interstellar, and I’m doing everything in my power to only watch it once. This movie looks incredible, but I worry that if I watch it again (or watch the next trailer… if there is a next trailer) it’ll ruin too much of the story.

Interesting note, the final title card has it releasing on film (70mm IMAX, and 70mm / 35mm regular screens) two days before “everywhere”. Very interesting.
