I came across this music video created by a team of French gamers. The song (rap) is in English but you can tell in some points where translating may have been a hiccup for them. The song is pretty good and the video itself is great so its worth a watch. Enjoy!

Jurassic Park 3D poster!

When it was announced that the Steven Spielberg 1993 smash hit Jurassic Park would be re-released in 3D fans were quite excited. I am not the biggest 3D lover but I am a huge dinosaur lover and I remember sitting in the theater with my family watching this movie. I was on the edge of my seat for the duration and had the biggest smile. It is for this reason that I am excited to see this re-release. Below you can see the new poster for Jurassic Park 3D.

Man builds a life size Hobbit hole out of balloons! [video]

Image
If you have ever wanted to live in the small Shire village of Hobbiton this could be a great way to achieve that goal. Tolkien fan, Jeremy Telford, spent an entire weekend creating Bilbo Baggins' living room at Bag End from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings out of balloons.
"Bag End out of 2600 balloons? Indeed! Over forty hours of build time and our living room moved a few steps closer to the Shire. This is a five minute long time lapse of the whole process." Watching the creation process is really interesting and the final result is simply stunning. The funniest part comes at the every end during the credits where you see Telford's children jumping around the balloons as it is being taken down.

Enjoy!

"The episode continues the story arc begun last week, as a group of young Jedi set out to build their first lightsabers. The former Doctor Who star will voice Huyang, a droid who is a crucial part of this journey." David Tennant will be voicing the character of 'Huyang' who is an "ancient droid in the service of the Jedi Order, whose sole task in life has been overseeing the construction of lightsabers".

Disney interested in purchasing Hasbro!

Image
Fresh from the announcement of their purchase of LucasFilm, rumor has it that Disney is now interested in buying the toy company Hasbro. 

According to MTV Geek, Disney is in talks to purchase Hasbro which has put out successful games such as Monopoly and Hungry Hungry Hippos, and movies such as Transformers and G.I. Joe.

"The Transformers and G.I. Joe films are with Paramount, but as we saw with Marvel, that could easily change. The animated series are with The Hub, along with Beyblade, Kaijudo, and others, and it’s not clear how that channel would fit into Disney’s plans. They could be folded into Disney XD, and the girls brands folded into Disney Channel. On the comics’ side this would be bad news for IDW, just as the Marvel acquisition was for BOOM! and the Lucasfilm acquisition is likely to be for Dark Horse." Although it is not official as of yet, it is being said that the purchase of Hasbro could happen at any time. If the purchase goes through, Disney will own …

Fans can now listen to the first full musical track from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!
