It’s about time Marvel came out with its own “Justice League”-like animation… Marvel and Lions Gate Entertainment have joined forces to create a series of Ultimate Avengers animated films. They currently plan to release at least four of them (and maybe as many as eight), with the first one heading straight to DVD & UMD for PSP on February 21st 2006. It will include such heroes as Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and Hulk. Presented in 1.77:1 anamorphic widescreen and Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound, the DVD will include an Avengers trivia subtitle track, “Avengers Assemble” & “The Ultimate Voice Talent Search” featurettes, an Ultimate Avengers 2 sneak preview and a “Which Avenger Are You?” DVD-ROM game. It all will retail for only $19.98. Click here to check out the cover art..
I received the new issue of Video Business in the mail today (Nov 28 2005 issue). It reveals that Fox will once again attempt a double-dip just in time for a sequel with the X-Men 2.5 DVD. -_- But Marvel also has plans to make feature films with Paramount for Captain America, Ant-Man, Power Pack, Nick Fury, Black Panther, Hawkeye, The Avengers, Cloak and Dagger, Doctor Strange and Shang-Chi. The first of them in expected in 2008. Other movies on the way are Fantastic Four 2, Punisher 2, Hulk 2, Black Widow, Deathlok and Namor. Wow. Overflooding the market much? >_>
Dean Devlin has revealed to SCI FI Wire that he and Roland Emmerich did write a sequel to Independence Day just after 9/11, and that it was inspired by it. But in the end, they just didn’t feel it was right and didn’t go any further with it.. 😦
Fox has announced some scheduling plans for 2006. American Idol returns on January 17th & 18th (ugh -_-). In news more actually care about, 24 once again opens its season with a “two-night, four-hour event” on January 15th & 16th, Bones is moving to an unfortunate timeslot opposite Lost beginning January 25th (*rolls eyes*), That 70s Show & Stacked will be moved to Thursdays at 9PM starting March 2nd, and new episodes of Prison Break don’t return until March 20th (but they will recap by airing the previous episode again the week before). Still no Freebirds starring Time Force‘s Erin Cahill though. 😦 ..They just have too many shows to air right now. They should try and take the 10PM hour from the affiliates and try to schedule some more things in there, like most the other networks do already..
DVDFanboy.com reveals some upcoming special bonuses to be included with some of December’s biggest DVD releases. Best Buy will include a clip-on watch with December 6th’s 24: Season Four boxed set, and Wal-Mart has bonus DVDs packaged with December 6th’s Fantastic Four & December 13th’s The Island (but keep in mind that Wal-Mart idiotically raises the price for copies that include their bonus discs). There’s also a list of DVD bonuses available now..
Production has begun on The N’s first one-hour dramatic thriller series, Whistler. It’s filming until April 2006 in Vancouver, but won’t air on The N until Fall 2006. The series, which takes place at a ski resort, also stars X-Files alum Nicholas Lea. For more details, just click here to check out the press release..
I fell asleep last night before I could get some DVR transferring done. Ugh. I awoke the next morning and got online a bit. I updated some archival data CDs, then watched some morning TV. Sorta. Then my dad went out to the grocery store again and I took that chance to transfer some crap off the DVR onto VHS. I also read another chapter of Roswell High #2.Three hours off the DVR. Yay. I then rewatched Green Day’s “Jesus Of Suburbia” music video as my dad returned home. Just because some guy cut himself with a razor blade in the video, he started saying “dope head” for some retarded reason. Then he made some stupid comment about it being devil music or something. I ignored him and returned to my room for a bit. I started leeching another torrent. 🙂
Passions was somewhat interesting. I can’t help but think they’ll stretch out this Ethan thing even more just to have some kind of “Christmas miracle”. Ugh.. Once that was over, I watched Monday’s awesome episode of Surface. Loved it. Too bad it’s the last one of the year. 😦 ..Next, I watched four more DVD episodes of Family Guy: Volume Three. Sooo funny. But only five left already. 😦 ..I left my dad to watch his news and got online to news-gather. I had some breakfast for supper. Thanks to my very slow computer, I didn’t get done online until just before 8PM. Grr. So I rebooted.
In primetime, I watched the new episodes of That 70s Show (lol), Stacked (lol.. i guess), Lost (omg @ the cliffhanger ending that won’t be continued until January), and Invasion (whoa.. they revealed quite a bit here.. awesome). Soon after all that was over, I returned to my room for the night.
My dad’s really down. Wish I could help. He worries that our family members moved to Florida because they wanted to get away from him. So he’s being more of a grinch about Christmas than ever before. Since it’s a family holiday and all. I’m doubting this Christmas will be any better than last year. It’ll probably be even worse.. See ya.
