While I am certain – not – that most of you were either partying at Coachella or gettin’ down to the MTV Movie Awards, many of your fellow readers were scaring up the usual mess o’ stories that we didn’t have room for last week. Compiled from the weekend thread with the help of Kyle LeClair, here are your weekend highlights of hilariousness.
Tipsters include: donnaryoko, Anyone00, SlyDante777, Dr.Gonzo82, Gallen_Dugall, Citrus_King, troi, andre_morello
-I knew Baz Luhrmann was attached to a kung fu movie. I did not realize it was THE Kung Fu movie.
–How to Train Your Dragon 2 trailer basically tells you the whole story.
-Weird: Archie Comics will be killing off Archie. Weirder: Chris Cummins turned down an offer to write about it.
-An anime series based on Sega consoles transformed into hot girls. Are you ready to plug and play?
–Adventure Time to get Banana Guard spinoff comic. Nobody better slip up on this one.
-See, I believe a douchey teen with powers, rebelling against his father, would dress this way. More so than Joss Whedon’s dorky blue sweater.
-The lost Darth Maul video game. Sadly, after the merger, it had to split.
-Chop chop, Jackie Chan.
-If a machine can learn the value of tying shoelaces, maybe we can too.
-Geek & Sundry wants to get rid of corporate funders for Tabletop, replace them all with you.
-The moon’s gonna change color for a short period.
–Jem’s production schedule is truly outrageous.
-How did Uwe Boll not direct this?
-All too quick Heroes of Cosplay season 2 trailer lasts just enough to let us know that it still has the people I like (Crabcat Industries) and the one I don’t (Yaya Han).
–Salma Hayek to play a taco in a movie called Sausage Party. I suppose it’s less on the nose than having her play a clam…
-Megan Fox would like to do a Sailor Moon remake, but every time she pitches it execs are all like, “Wait, what? Your eyes are up where? Ohhhh, gotcha.”
-Annoying Monty Python fans take over Norway. They no longer have to pine for the fjords.
-Indian politician dresses as Spider-man, climbs walls. Supposedly he did it to get elected, but we know he was just avoiding Mr. Poo.
-Furry Force – the cartoon superhero team who become furries, lactate, enjoy bondage, and live in a giant Manicorn. Really, that’s what it’s about.
–Sharknado 2 is asking for more money, because that’s clearly what we loved about the first one – its huge budget.
–Timecop will be getting a remake, and besides SlyDante777, I suspect most people are going, “Eh, it was nothing super-special the first time. Why not.”
-Issue one of Rom: Spaceknight gets redrawn, each page by different artists, as a tribute/fundraiser for Bill Mantlo. And the toy remains un-rereleased.
-It’s a beautiful light year in the neighborhood, a beautiful day for a planet…can it be mine?
-NASA to plant a vegetable garden in space, because they want to hurry up and get to it while Bruce Dern is still alive.
-TransLego! GameBoy in Disguise!
–Superhero and other nerdy workouts includes one for Stormtroopers, which somehow is more than merely “Eat. Sleep. Get Shot. Repeat.”
-Ready, Driver 1? Insert coin, start car. Like, your actual car.
-The real lord of the rings.
