New week, new stuff you may have missed. Buckle your seat belts, folks, it’s a wild one.
-In what could be one of the oddest rumors of the week, word on the street is that Joaquin Phoenix is in talks to star as “Doctor Strange” in Marvel’s screen adaptation of the comic-book character. After kicking Edgar Wright off of “Ant-Man,” this could certainly be a move that would earn Marvel back some street-cred.
–For the first time in his more-than-30-years of being famous, Weird Al Yankovic was #1 on the Billboard Album Charts. It just goes to show what we never knew before this moment; nostalgia never dies.
-The San Diego Comic-Con is this weekend, which means plenty of juicy gossip, pictures, trailers, and all sorts of geekery abound. Already, we have a new trailer for “Interstellar,” and some new pictures of Batffleck (yes, this is seriously what people are calling it. But look at his tiny little ears!)
-More TV news this week! “Community”‘s 6th season will likely come out “after Christmas,” and will be released in a weekly fashion, rather than Yahoo dumping all the episodes in our lap like Netflix or Hulu would have. No binge-watching for you, Greendale students.
-Mark August 21st on your calendars, because that’s the day when the epic “Every Episode of Simpsons Ever” Marathon begins on FXX. Shortly after that 12-day (Yes. TWELVE DAYS) marathon, FXX will release the “Simpsons World” app, containing not only every single 500+ episode of the iconic animated series, but behind-the-scenes factoids, trivia, and other goodies. This is the Golden Age, my friends.
-For all you sickos out there, the “50 Shades of Grey” trailer is out now. So go watch that filth based on that book of filth, and then go see the full-length filth feature. You can tell how much I care about this story.
-Hey look, guys! It’s a comedy show with Tina Fey and Rachel Dratch from 1999 performed at the Second City! Watch this instead of the above link! This will make your day better!
-Finally, and with no further context, watch this trailer. You won’t regret it.
Well, August is around the corner, and that means our Make Our Case articles will be going up soon, where Nina and I make our respective cases for who should take home an Emmy Award in each category. Stay tuned for that, and have a great weekend, y’all!
