Jem and the Holograms trailer is truly outrageous

It appears that Hollywood has suddenly discovered the 1980s and now everything needs to be turned into a movie. Especially if it was a toy line from Hasbro.

After the success of the Transformers and G.I. Joe movie franchises, Hasbro has been shopping around its portfolio of properties and landed G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon Chu to take on Jem and the Holograms.

Yes… that Jem and Holograms.

The speed with which this movie came together almost felt like a practical joke, but now, here we are with a full trailer and a release date set for this fall. Somehow this is an actual movie that will be in theaters just months from now. And reportedly it only cost $5 million to make, so depending on how much money is spent on marketing, it is almost assured of being profitable.

What is odd in the trailer, however, is there appears to be no references to the “evil” all girl band The Misfits. Instead this looks almost like the exact same plot as the Josie and the Pussycats film from 2001. Yet another live action film based on a cartoon about an all girl band. Apparently all films on this topic share the same script?

As someone entering his teen years in the early 1980s, I will admit some nostalgia for all of these properties, but also must say that some things are best left back in their original decade. Hopefully someone stops Hasbro before it gets to the Inhumanoids or Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light.

Jem and the Holograms will hit theaters on Oct. 23.

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry

Algunos de mis amigos están ahora me llaman un apologista BlackBerry, e incluso un fanboy BlackBerry, sólo porque resulta que tengo probado, y lo disfrutamos, el Z30-libre del teclado. Sin embargo, a pesar de mi predilección por ambos teclados y el RIM avances (er, BlackBerry) ha realizado recientemente, el Nexus One de Google 5 sigue siendo mi smartphone defecto de elección.
Pero eso cambió hace dos semanas - al menos temporalmente - cuando Jon Rettinger me retó a tratar de vivir con el dispositivo insignia de BlackBerry, el Pasaporte. Y ya que estoy por lo general para cualquier reto tecnológico que decidí darle un paso - y así que me puse el Nexus a un lado y se zambulló en la parte más profunda.

Gears of War remaster screenshots from footage leak

See full gallery on TechnoBuffalo The only thing Black Tusk and Microsoft have left to do on the Gears of War remaster is actually announce it. We’ve seen it hinted at, denied, and rated.Now we have some footage accidentally leaked onto the Xbox DVR site, likely by a developer who forgot to disable the automatic upload.This isn’t gameplay footage per se – the enemy is standing still in the clips while the player attacks them. It’s likely test footage for some of the gore physics or something like that. But it’s definitely footage taken in-game.The two images above were pulled from a NeoGAF thread on the leak comparing the screenshot of the new clips to one from the original Gears. Microsoft is likely scrambling to take the footage down, but currently the thread, linked to in the source for this story, has links to the videos.If you decide to click through and watch the clips, it’s important to note that they were filmed using the Xbox Game DVR and were filmed three months ago, before t…

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launch trailer take 2 – Go Your Own Way

You can call it another lonely day. Haven’t we been here once before? CD Projekt RED believes that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is far too amazing for just one launch trailer, so it has decided to create yet another just to drive home the fact that you need to play this game.The new “Go Your Way” launch trailer features more in-engine graphics instead of impressive pre-rendered CG, and its focus this time around is not our big, bad hero Geralt but rather the Princess Ciri. Don’t be fooled by her puppy dog eyes and adorable freckles. This girl will kill you in a flash! The trailer tells her tale of how she wandered from home, and tells of how Geralt sets out to find her.The relationship between these two is not the only star of the trailer either. Geralt’s fantasy world is full of real life horrors that extend beyond mere monsters. Slaughter, torture, executions, dangerous seductions. The trailer bares all that you will find in this horrible yet beautiful place, giving you a taste of the s…
