Early last week, JoBlo (via Latino-Review and comicbookmovie.com) reported that Marvel may want Doctor Strange to serve as their new Iron Man franchise. I’m all for this. Doctor Stephen Strange makes for a compelling character. He’s got a great origin story (he’s a gifted but arrogant surgeon who breaks his hands and ends up learning magic as a way to heal himself) and the tone is a little different from Iron Man (or any Marvel film) so it will surely be fresh.
Breaking Bad is coming to an end soon, and what better way to say goodbye than to drink some beer inspired by the show? This AV Club article points out that, unfortunately, folks outside of the Albuquerque area may not be able to get their hands on the Marble Brewery beer. But it would go so well with these blue meth cupcakes that I’m planning on making!
4th of Jaws-ly
What are your 4th of July plans? Ours involve the beach but Jaws on the big screen is also on the agenda. Yes, Sun-Ray Cinema, everyone’s favorite indie theater, is showing the flick this Thursday, complete with a slice of apple pie. Because if there’s anything more American than Roy Scheider 'sploding a great white shark, it’s apple pie.
Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights
Nick brought to my attention that Universal Studios Orlando is using The Cabin in the Woods as their source of horror for Halloween Horror Nights this year. I wanna go!
Cabin turned out to be one of the most original horror movies in recent memory, so this year’s HHN should be awesome. Fingers crossed for a merman.
The Conjuring - via JoBlo
Another trailer for The Conjuring? Sure. This one’s even creepier than the last few because it really sells the fact that the film is based on a true story. I honestly kind of forgot that this was coming out this month, so I’m pretty stoked.
Escape Plan - via JoBlo
This trailer paints the movie as a solid action flick. It looks like it has a little more brains than the films Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger have been in lately. Why couldn’t Arnie and Sly have made this 20 years ago, though?
And how did 50 Cent get in this? This thing is being released in the theaters, right?
LOTTA great tweets for this Batch.
Shyamalan says he's "getting close" to making an Unbreakable sequel. Say what you will about his last few films, but I'd see that.

At this point, this is probably the only Shyamalan film I would ever go to the theater for.
Maybe Predator was just angry and violent because he couldn't see well.

To anyone trying to sell your TV: when someone comes to buy it, put the Blu-Ray of DRIVE on. They can't not buy it.

I'll have to keep this in mind!

For the past few days I've been misreading that "Paula Deen: Fired" headline as "Paula Deen: Fried" (which would be a fitting end actually).
