Why read a whole bunch of posts? This one has everything. A lot of news comes down the pipeline every day that’s not quite enough to merit a full post, but still worth talking about. Here’s the buzz from the world of games, TV and movies.
The Evil Within debut trailer
Resident Evil mastermind Shinji Mikami returns to survival horror for a new game from Bethesda. There’s not much of anything that could be described as gameplay in this hype clip, but it looks scary AF so I’m willing to cut it some slack.
FirstThor: The Dark World poster
Chris Hemsworth returns as the God of Thunder, and here’s the first poster for Thor: The Dark World, which gives us absolutely no information about the plot. Cool!
Free popcorn on 4/20 from This Is The End
Seth Rogen knows where his bread is buttered. He just dropped a new promo for This Is The End, his co-directorial debut with Evan Goldberg, that promises free popcorn at Regal Cinemas if you buy your tickets on 4/20. I’ll be doing that, thanks.
Inside Nathan For You
The funniest new show of the season was Comedy Central’s Nathan For You, a demented twist on the Kitchen Nightmares formula that featured clueless oaf Nathan Fielder giving real businesses hilariously weird advice and watching them take it. The Hollywood Reporter has an interview with Fielder where he mentions that he wanted to strap himself to the nose of a 747 and fly from LAX to Burbank but Comedy Central wouldn’t let him.
New Only God Forgives trailer
Ryan Gosling reunites with Nicolas Winding Refn for another movie that promises to kick ass just as much as Drive. Only God Forgives takes place in the world of underground Thai boxing, and Gosling’s pretty face is going right to hell in this new trailer.
