Extended Iron Man Trailer from last night

As promised, here's the 3 minute trailer for Iron Man. There's a little more plot details and the first time that both Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) make significant appearances along with Stane's creation Iron Monger. All in all, this looks like an awesome summer movie. I think that I'm taking May 2nd off.

But please don't take an admitted fanboy's word for it, have a look for yourself below.

The last Justice League: The New Frontier post

I know that it seems like I've been shilling for Warner Brothers/DC for the past week (don't I wish) but in all honesty, I truly dig this material and the overall goodness that is included with this release. So, for the last time (promise), here's a snippet of a Legion of Doom featurette from the second disc and a decription of The New Frontier along with a listing of cool stuff that comes with both DVD versions. If this stuff can't get you to drop some coin on it, I don't know what will.

Satellite Demolition Factoids

Where's the Superfriends when you need them? With the US-193 coming home to roost, it looks like the US will have to resort to shooting some missles at it in order to minimize the impact to our Mother Earth. Actually, when you think about it, the firepower might make for a great fireworks show. But I just wish that we had a laser cannon to vaporize the free-fallin' disaster just to be safe. So, in an effort to ignore the possible cataclysm, those jokesters at FEMA have compiled some fun facts about the incoming US-193:

Satellite Summary:

  • A U.S. Satellite has malfunctioned and is expected to re-enter the Earth’s atmosphere sometime between the last week of February and the first week of March. Right now it is in an uncontrolled decent and as a result, the exact date, time and place of impact can not yet be determined.
  • The satellite weighs approximately 5000 lbs and about 50% of it will most likely survive re-entry.
  • The fuel tank, lined with Beryllium, contains 1,000 lbs of Hydrazine and will likely survive re-entry. Both are considered hazardous materials.
  • On a conference call held on Thursday, February 14, 2008 DHS stated that there is a 28% probability that the satellite will hit land and a 21% probability that impact will occur near a populated area.
  • Debris field expected to be 100 miles long by 60 miles wide
  • Final impact area projections will be more defined within two hours of impact
  • DoD will attempt to intercept satellite via missile after February 20th, 2008.
  • FEMA will be standing up 1 ERT-A per FEMA Region to facilitate a timely federal response
  • State EOC will possibly move to a level 2 activation closer to impact – this has the potential of being a no notice event
  • Plans/Ops will be reaching out to all sources to obtain and push out information as it becomes available.
  • – unofficial satellite tracking webstie
  • Space Shuttle landing is schedule for Monday, February 20th

History of US-193:

  • NROL 21 (or USA 193) is the cover name for one-off classified satellite.
  • Constructed by Lockheed Martin operated by the National (NRO)
  • Launched December, 14 2006
  • A few weeks after launch reports emerged, that ground stations were unable to communicate with an expensive experimental U.S. spy satellite launched last year by the U.S. National Reconnaissance Office (NRO).
  • In August 2007 the satellite has been declared a complete loss and will be allowed to decay from orbit.

"Marvel"-ous Movie and DVD News

I wish that I had the time to break news stories but unfortunately, blogging doesn't pay the bills and in the immortal words of Latrell Spreewell, "I've got a family to feed." To that end, I read on Newsarama of Marvel's 4th Quarter Profits and appended at the end of the press release was this:

Along with listing the upcoming Iron Man and Incredible Hulk movies (hitting theaters on May 2nd and June 13th, respectively), Marvel reiterated that writers have been engaged for Captain America, Thor and The Avengers films, while Ant-Man has both writer and director. Punisher War Zone is slated for a September 12th release, while X-Men Origins: Wolverine is slated for a May 1, 2009 release.

Wolverine and the X-Men, an animated television series, is slated for a spring, 2009 release, with Hulk: The Animated Series and a property called Super Hero Squad. Iron Man: The Animated Series is slated for a spring 2008 release.

Upcoming direct-to-DVD releases include:

Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow - August 2008
Hulk Vs. - January 2009
Thor: Son of Asgard - September 2009
Planet Hulk - February 2010

And Spider-Man: The Musical? Still in development.

All in all, some great news for the Marvel Zombies out there (and I know one in training who will especially like to hear about the upcoming Super Hero Squad release). And hopefully, Spider-Man: The Musical will still live only in development hell or at least one can hope.

"Indiana Jones" Teaser Trailer released and release the first of many (I'm sure) trailers for the upcoming "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". Check it out below:

For the record, I went going into seeing this trailer not wanting to like it. But damn it, by the time the Indy Theme song comes rolling in, I've become a 14-yr old again and can't wait to see the whole thing in theaters. Damn you, John Williams.

The 25th Anniversary of Jackson's "Thriller"

Yesterday, Sony dropped the newest recycling of Michael Jackson's Thriller; this one is labelled "The 25th Anniversary of Thriller" with the sub-title "The World's Biggest Selling Album of All-Time". Hopefully, the kids that are learning at the feet of Hannah Montana will google the word "album" so they can understand the concept of vinyl as the sole form of music listening. The regular release does include six remixes by people like, Akon, Kanye West and Fergie and the deluxe version has some more production value and a DVD. It is hard to believe it has been 25 years since Michael actually looked like a person versus the zombie he resembles in John Landis' "Thriller"video. So, to either to enlighted yourself on the pre-plastic boogie man that was the self-professed "King of Pop" or just to make yourself feel older than you already feel, go on over to the LA Times and read their very so-so 25 "Thriller" facts.

RIP Stever Gerber (1947-2008)

Yesterday, Stever Gerber (pictured above) of Howard the Duck fame, passed away from pulmonary fibrosis. And while I am an avid reader of the medium, I can honestly say that I've never read the series that he created and that really defined him. I was just moving into junior high and didn't want to read a book about what looked like Donald Duck in a human's world since even as a 11 year-old, your allowance only went so far. As as I first hear word of his passing late yesterday, I was sad but I still thought that he was more of an icon to older people than myself.

Then I read this heartfelt post by Mark Evanier and as I was reading, I became aware of how Gerber was there during my formative years. Gerber's resume included such great cartoon shows like Plastic Man, G.I. Joe and Dungeons & Dragons; all shows were hallmarks for kids of the late 70s-early 80s. But to find out post mortem that this man was basically responsible for creating and making Thundarr the Barbarian truly hits home how influential he was and makes my initial dismissal of Howard the Duck all the more superficial. Which is why the next collections I get is the Essential Howard The Duck.

2007 New Models #15 of 36 - 1966 TV Series Batmobile

I picked this baby up at a KB toys in Foley, AL for just under $1.50 and it was well worth it. Say what you will about the TV Series (and believe me, I have - the words "The Bat Batman" come to mind), the only cool thing on the show was the car. As the Chris O'Donnell version of Robin said, "Chicks dig the car." He ain't lying, folks.

Ripped from the KFR pages - Mt. Dew shows off their Green Label Art

Being relatively new to the redneck backwoods of the States (as the chaps from “Top Gear” would have you believe), I was beginning to think that the latency for all things cutural was around 1-2 months. So, imagine my surprise when I saw these interesting bottles in my local Tom Thumb (the Florida equivalent to 7-11):

These designs are a part of the soda’s Green Label Art promotion and there are a total of six bottles available. I kinda dug them but then again, I am nothing but a bitch to a decent-looking mass marketing campaign.

If you want to see the other bottle designs, they’re at Kung Fu Rodeo.

One last thing...

Bruce Allen of Patriots Daily posted a great piece on the Patriots season and it has nothing to do with the SB loss. You really should read it. I thought so highly of it that I placed the following comment:

Well said. This season felt more like a drain after the constant national Patriots bashing. But unfortunately, I have a feeling that this will not be a one season thing because you know that *insert your own sanctimonious entity (overly ambitious Print Columnists, narcissistic TV "Analysts", self-appointed World-Wide Sports Leaders, holier-than-thou Comment Trolls, overzealous Congressional Eagles fans)* will do their best not to let the rest of the country forget about "Spygate". And just like this year, the New England Patriots fans will receive the brunt of those attacks.

Finding a new way to smile

One of the "benefits" from watching the Super Bowl (if that's really possible) was remembering that this movie was coming out this summer.

WANTED - Starring James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman, Terrence Stamp, Common

Very little has been seaid about this blockbuster, which leads me to believe that it's really bad or it could be the sleeper comic book movie of the summer. And considering the competition in that genre alone (Iron Man, the Dark Knight), that's saying alot.
