New set photos give us our best look at RoboCop's new suit!

Image
Straight from the set of the upcoming RoboCop, these two images gives fans an amazing look at actor Joel Kinnaman inside the new RoboCop suit.
The helmet looks awesome but I am weary of how the actual suit looks. It just looks like a regular suit than the body of a machine. I can only hope that it has a different look once I see it in a clip or something. What do you think of RoboCop's new look?

Director of The Wolverine states it will NOT be a prequel!

Image
Some very big, and shocking, news has surfaced about the upcoming film The Wolverine. Director James Mangold came forward in an interview with Empire Magazine and cleared up the timeline issue that has been surrounding his film. Until now fans had thought that The Wolverine would be a prequel to the X-Men films and focus on Logan's past. However, Mangold is now saying that the film is not a prequel and will actually take place after the original X-Men trilogy.

"Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all," reveals Mangold. "Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there's a tremendous sense of isolation for him."

This quote may confuse fans since we just found out that Famke Janssen would be making a cameo in the movie as Jean Grey who Mangold just stated would still be dead. This would lead us to believe that Jean Grey's cameo will come as part of a flashback. Mangold then goes on to state that besides the…

Capcom admits Resident Evil 6 needs to be 'fixed' in new press release!

Image
Resident Evil fans were excited to have a new game on the way but when they finally received Resident Evil 6 they were less than excited to see what they had gotten. (Frankly, the game was awful.) Both video game critics and fans alike were quite upset at the game the Capcom had released and the backlash that resulted shook the internet. Clearly, Capcom was going to get wind of these reactions to their newest game and they have come to a decision.  

Capcom has officially announced that due to the overwhelming amount of "player feedback" that they are going to give fans a "title update" that they say will both improve the game and the players' reaction to it.

Take a look at the press release from Capcom below:
Capcom is pleased to announce that, in response to player feedback, a free title update for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Resident Evil 6 will be made available in mid-December 2012. This update includes the following additions and …

Peter Jackson reveals big news about Smaug, the spiders of Mirkwood, and The Necromancer in The Hobbit!

Image
The upcoming issue of Empire Magazine shares some great details for the upcoming movie trilogy for The Hobbit straight from director Peter Jackson himself. 

*Possible Spoilers ahead.

Jackson has revealed that fan may not need to wait as long as they first suspected to get a glimpse of the dragon Smaug. Jackson told empire than fans will see a "fleeting appearance" of Smaug during the prologue of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Though it may only possibly be a few seconds of screen time it's still great news that we'll get to see Smaug earlier than we thought we would.

Jackson continued to comment on the fact that the spiders of Mirkwood will not make an appearance until the second film in the trilogy and that they'll speak with a "psychic communication" that only Bilbo hears. This answers the question of whether or not we'll be seeing talking spiders in the film.

Lastly, it was revealed that in the second film, The Desolation of Smaug, fans will …

There is nothing more fun than setting up some fun pranks on your friends during the Halloween season and our favorite duo of Hobbits, Merry and Pippin, feel the same way. Watch this great LEGO video of our favorite group of Hobbit from The Lord of the Rings on Halloween night.
"Pippin and Merry need to learn a bit of discretion when it comes to their pranks. They forget that people like Aragorn take things a bit too seriously. Also, there are REAL spooks out in the forest too."

Image
Get ready to let out a cheer of excitement, Doctor Who fans! It's being reported that the title of Stephen Thompson's episode in the second of of the seventh season of Doctor Who is titled "Journey to the Center of the TARDIS". This title of course implies that fans will get to see a lot more of the TARDIS than we have seen in the current series.

Fans of the classic series of Doctor Who will know that rooms of the TARDIS interior used to be a regular sight on the show. However, since the series has returned all fans have seen are the console room, some random corridors ("The Doctor's Wife"), and a wardrobe area above the console room ("The Christmas Invasion").

It was also revealed by upcoming Doctor Who guest star Ashley Walters that, "in our episode it'll be the first time people get to see so much of the Tardis." This was shared with Radio Times after he spoke about his experience on the show and almost getting fired.

Image
Gangnam Style parody videos have been flooding the internet but when I came across this particular I simply had to share it! This video crosses Psy's Gangnam Style with John Carpenter's 1986 film Big Trouble In Little China. What makes this video so amazing is that it has its own original lyrics, has a great video, and most importantly features the original David Lo Pan actor himself, James Hong. Furthermore, it is fully backed by John Carpenter as he brought this video to "Screamfest" last weekend and presented it.

First look at Ben Kingsley as The Mandarin in Iron Man 3!

Image
More big news coming from Marvel about Iron Man 3 is the first look at actor Ben Kingsley as the film's villain, The Mandarin. 

Comic fans will know the Mandarin as "a Chinese exile who ventures into a remote, forbidden valley and discovers a crashed alien spaceship. Inside the ship are ten rings, each with a different power, which allow him to seek revenge on a world he considers unjust." However the studio has made it very clear in the past several months that this Iron Man film will be grounded on Earth and deal with real world problems. So you can be sure the the alien part of Mandarin's backstory will be rewritten for the film.

Entertainment Weekly makes a great point to the fans to point out that,
"Iron Man 3 will be more about a clash of technology, Feige says and those who have been paying close attention to the previous two films know that The Ten Rings is a term for the terrorist group that kidnapped Tony Stark in the first movie, and gave the …

Look at which returning X-Man will make a cameo in The Wolverine!

Image
*Possible spoilers ahead.

Filming for The Wolverine has been underway but a big announcement has just surfaced about an original X-Man returning to reprise their role in the film.

It is being reported that even though The Wolverine is set before the original X-Men films that actress Famke Janssen flew down to Sydney, Australia last week to film a cameo role for the film as Jean Grey. This would of course mean that Wolverine and Jean Grey met prior to being at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters in New York. This could work for Wolverine as he has lost his memories as his younger self but the film will have to explain why Jean Grey does not remember meeting him. At the moment Jean Grey's exact role in the story is unknown but it'll be interesting to see how they work her in.

Are you excited to see the return of Jamke Janssen as Jean Grey?
