Farscape Coming To Blu-ray: Nerds Rejoice By Starbursting Into Flame

Farscape is finally making the long trek to Blu-ray, and it makes the nerd in me extremely happy. Full disclosure: I worked on Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars when I was at the Jim Henson Company, so I'm fairly biased. While this show was one of the ultimate science fiction experiences, it ultimate was cruelly canceled to make way for more Stargate. But hey, Star Trek came back eventually, so I'm still holding out hope.

The series will be available in both complete series and single season flavors, and includes 15 hours of bonus materials spread out over 20 Blu-ray discs, and will be available on November 15. For a full list of the features, head beyond the break and get your geek on. I hope Chiana and Jool are even hotter in HD.

Transformers & Humans Don't Mix

Posted August 30, 2011 - By Eugene Morton

Do you remember when the government tried to kick the Transformers off the planet in Transformers: Dark of the Moon? Maybe that was a good idea afterall.

Wolverine 2: Screenplay Finished, Shooting In January

Long-in-the-making "prequel-sequel," The Wolverine may have hit yet another snag in its attempt to get rolling. Yes, it seems that the film will once more be delayed.

We had previously thought that the film was set to go for this Fall, but if the latest report from Deadline proves true, then star, Hugh Jackman won't get to shed his claws in the front of the camera until Spring of 2012.

Additionally, it appears that the original aim of the film to actually shoot the Japan-set prequel in Japan is beginning to look unfeasible due to weather conditions and they may have to ship the production up to Canada. Or, in the very least, shoot between countries.

Will any mutant healing factor be enough to fix this film?

The Hobbit: Peter Jackson Discusses Bilbo Baggins

The Hobbit's Martin Freeman, who will play the perpetually-perturbed protagonist, Bilbo Baggins in the two-part epic, has apparently worked extremely well for the film according to director, Peter Jackson.

In an interview taken there with The LA Times, the director discusses his feelings on the performance of his film's star and how he was able to effectively carry that Hobbit sensibility with his performance.

At the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, cast members, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, and Hiddleston, would assemble for a promotional appearance at the big event over the weekend.

Worst Furniture Commercial Ever

Posted August 22, 2011 - By Joseph Baxter

While "Skippy" here is clearly trolling everyone in this furniture store commercial, the magnitude of wtf-ness is nevertheless off-the-charts.

Get ready for some of the most awkward, cringe-inducing interviews of all time.

The Dark Knight Rises Reveals Anne Hathaway As Catwoman

Ever since last week, when The Dark Knight Rises gave us our first look at Anne Hathway in her Cat-Suit, the fan reaction has been rather lukewarm. (Tom Hardy's Bane has also been getting pounded on the Internet after footage of his voice leaked.)

In an interview with MTV, Hathaway responds to the mounting criticism of her costume, which appears rather plain, and more importantly, mask-less. While she admits to being a bit reluctant to take in the rage from the phalanx of negative commenters, she did reveal that there may be more to what we're seeing.
