The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies Posters Gallery

“It does not do to leave a live dragon out of your calculations, if you live near him”…

I’m just now starting to get a little pumped for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. I guess that’s the way I’m rolling these days, because I generally don’t get too jacked about anything until its close to happening. Unless you count Episode VII, of course. The “Defining Chapter” of The Hobbit Trilogy hits cinemas December 12th in the UK, December 26th in the US, and December 26th in Australia (hey, I had the wikipedia page pulled up so I might as well have given you the information on all three dates, plus I hear that people live in those places and I know that people from those places look at this site).

Anyways the movies’ Twitter account has been slamming out a bunch of new posters and banners over the last few days. I’ve put every one I could find (plus the rad SDCC poster) in my short amount of time in the gallery below, just click on any one of em to start a slideshow. And for those of you who haven’t seen a trailer yet, heres that too:

Brad Bird’s “Tomorrowland” Has its first Teaser

┬áThat shot remind anyone of The NeverEnding Story?…

Tomorrowland-Trailer

I’m a huge fan of director Brad Bird‘s work. The big 3: Iron Giant, The Incredibles, and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Now he’s got a new live-action sci-fi film hitting theaters on May 22nd, 2015, called Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson, amongst others. Heres a vague synopsis from Wikipedia (there are much more in depth sysnopsis’ out there that give away a lot if you just google it):

Frank (George Clooney) and Casey (Britt Robertson) travel to a place somewhere in time and space only known as Tomorrowland, where their actions directly affect the world and themselves.

Here’s the first teaser:

Doesn’t that city look a lot like Fantasia from NeverEnding Story?

Audi Spock Challenge: Quinto vs Nimoy Is The Winner

The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry…

The-Audi-Spock-Challenge-3

My friends and family make finding stuff to post on the site very easy. I’ve had four taxing days of alotta work and alotta play and I was of the attitude when I got home tonight that “fuck it, I’m gonna relax, turn on a movie, and snooze in front the couch.” Buuut then I watched this extremely awesome (and nerdy) video that my amazing sister Nicolle sent me, it had to be posted.

Ladies and Gentlemen, The Audi Spock Challenge. It’s Zachary Quinto vs Leonard Nimoy. For those of you non geeks Quinto was Spock in the new Star Trek, Nimoy was in the old ones…well…in the new ones too.

I fucking love that Nimoy is singing The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins!

Shadow of Mordor Video Reviews From Gamespot, IGN, GamesRadar

 

And it looks…

Shadow-of-Mordor-Reviews-1

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor is one of those games I had zero interest in when it was first revealed in November 2013. The graphics looked sub par and I had no idea what the actual game was about. Now that things have cleared on both of those matters (the graphics are killer and it’s basically Assassin’s Creed in the LOTR universe and takes place between The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy) I am very, very excited to play it (releases September 30th).

But I wasn’t even gonna give it a sniff until I saw some reviews, and luckily three of the best, Gamespot, IGN, and GamesRadar, have taken care of me (and you) on that front. To watch each of those just click on the corresponding pic:
