You can't afford to live like this
So many awesome bits of news and release dates in this round-up, but this one has me the most excited: 07) Jim Byrkit and Alex Manugian (Rango) will write Fraggle Rock. The idea of Fraggle Rock + Rango is phenomenal.
09:11 AM on 06/02/12
any word on if the Fraggle Rock movie will be CGI or puppets?
i'm guessing CGI...
09:51 AM on 06/02/12
So not only does Clarice have to stop a serial killer, she has to protect herself from an abusive ex-husband that she can't seem to escape?
10:05 AM on 06/02/12
It's like Meow-Schwitz in here.
Otherwise known as Superhero Entertainment roundup.
Can't wait for Django Unchained.

Show's over, mother fuckers.
Looks like I need to buy a blu-ray player before that huge ass 10 disc blu-ray set comes out.
That is fucking insane.

hahaha, usually I post too much about "indie" stuff. Rest_easy did 95% of this round up and it wasn't that busy of a news week!
10:41 AM on 06/02/12
Holy cow. I think I have to see Spider Man now. I suppose Marvel is moving forward with some
Civil War plotline .
Also, did the girl in the Umbrella recruitment vid look like Rebecca Black, or was that just me?
[EDIT] I should have read the article. I don't get why Marvel doesn't have the rights to use Norman Osborne though.
11:22 AM on 06/02/12
Why Mockingbird Lane? Why aren't they just calling it The Munsters?
12:00 PM on 06/02/12
Really upset that Sony are douches and won't even let Norman Osborne be in Iron Man 3 as the iron patriot. Such bullshit.
12:50 PM on 06/02/12
Breaking Bad is what my life needs right now, basically.
01:19 PM on 06/02/12
I'm kinda bummed it's split so the series finale won't actually be until over a year from now. Oh well.
