For this puppy, all those hours at the gym using the indoor rock climbing wall have finally paid off towards a productive talent.
Now, he's free to be helpless and do nothing in the outside world.
In the latest issue of Empire, The Dark Knight Rises director, Christopher Nolan dishes some serious facts on next summer's third and presumably final film in his series of Batman films.
In the most fundamental bit of info we've received on the film's plot, Nolan has revealed that the film actually takes place eight years after events in The Dark Knight.
After being declared "the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now," purposely taking blames for the crimes of Two-Face, and on the run from the Police, we will rejoin Batman's struggle nearly a decade later, at a point in which Nolan says he is "not in a great state."
Oh, but wait, there's more! Like what exactly is the deal with Bane's wheezing.
The still-untitled sequel to 2009's Star Trek is apparently very much on track.
While the reboot film of director, J.J. Abrams (pictured above on the set of that film) injected new, vibrant, action-packed life into the tired franchise, it seemed like the unstoppable momentum caused by the film's $385.7 million worldwide haul would seemingly fall off the map when the sequel did not immediately begin production.
However, in spite of the slow start, the latest report from TrekMovie indicates that the script is indeed finished, the folks at Industrial Light & Magic have already started work on some of the effects shots, and (perhaps most importantly,) the film will begin shooting on January 15, 2012.
What should we expect from this most anticipated of sequels?
The players of The Old Murder House Theater in Austin, Texas are brining the art of the proscenium stage to new heights and body counts. Watch as crime-riddled future Detroit comes to life in this live-sweded stage production of Robocop that is both hilarious and impressive.
José Padilha, director of the upcoming remake film may want to take notice of this production, whose tickets just about anyone would "buy for a dollar."
Sure, you could blow a year and half sitting on your sofa eating nachos while playing Battlefield 3. However, you could also put that time to productive use to become an educator and deal with lovely children like the one you see above.
Bring your own holy water.
The galaxy may be clamoring for a political party where earmarks mean records of actual ears that have been severed off deadbeat clients, and the only acceptable deficit spending is a collection of bar tabs from across fifty star systems.
The Hobbit production videos are back and in more dimensions than ever!
The last production video back in July gave focus to Bilbo Baggins' newly-revealed dwarven companions. However, this latest video goes in depth on the technical process of filming the epic production in three dimensions.
Director, Peter Jackson gives us the grand tour as we see how a collection of 48 RED 3D cameras capture, among other things, the creepy, arachnid-filled forests of Mirkwood.
We also manage to get a few quick glimpses of some iconic moments from The Hobbit book, such as Bilbo's climb of the giant tree in Mirkwood to help the group find which way to march inside the sky-blocking silva, and the scene where the group are captured in spider-webs.
It's a truly fascinating look into this amazing production.
As we move closer to All Hallow's Eve, the sight of this horrific green screen work is enough to chill one to the bone.
Be very afraid, folks. We have a quality performance from a legend like Tim Curry with the production quality of a mall kiosk.
There's a lot of hype surrounding this iteration of the return of McDonalds's McRib sandwich, which, it seems, comes and goes about every six months or so these days, and it got us thinking about the limited edition fast food items that have also come and gone over the years and how much we'd love to see them come back.
So, without further adieu, let us look at some of those delicious foodstuffs and wonder if we'll ever see them again.
1. McDonald's Chopped Beefsteak Sandwich - There were some excellent things about this oblong burger on a long bun with onions and barbecue sauce, which disappeared in the early 80's, not long after its debut. It was a sort of classy version of a McDonald's burger, and it was definitely thicker and meatier than the other burgers they had on offer at the time. The only bummer about this sandwich, aside from the fact that we'll likely never see it again, is that they absolutely would not put cheese on it, under any circumstances, which I couldn't figure out and still can't, but, then, I'm not a McDonalds executive, either.
