Don't get all nerd snobby. So what if this is from MSN? Sure you might feel like you're being pandered to ("Let's put an un-ugly person in a pop culture t-shirt and call it nerd-ology, nerd-core, nerd-whatever and get on the nerd train to nerd town and get nerdy with the nerds"), but I learned a trivial thing or 2 from these vids and I like to wow my friends with useless knowledge. The Walking Dead went from comic book to TV show to mass appeal phenomenon. So what's the next big thing in comics? Check out the vids. Maybe they're calling it.
What the hell? Isn't he the ruler of the Necromongers? From the trailer it looks like they pick up where Pitch Black ends rather than the Chronicles of Riddick. That's a shame. They created a prety interesting universe (underverse) in that one. So if you didn't see the last couple of Riddick movies, don't worry about it. This doesn't seem to rely too heavily on understanding that mythology. Still, I'll be getting in line to see Riddick at some point.
Mike Rowe; narrator of The Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch, voice-over guy, pitchman and host of The Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs delivers this hilarious video in which he narrates someone's boring home movie. Everything would be better if Mike Rowe narrated it.
A teaser of new music from Avenged Sevenfold has been posted online. The untitled piece of music is now available for streaming and is taken from the California act's sixth studio album, which is due out this summer. Also available is an audio clip of Avenged Sevenfold singer M. Shadowstalking about the songwriting process for the new CD.
The new disc will follow up 2010's Nightmare, which earned the band its first Number One album on the Billboard 200 chart. But guitarist Zacky Vengeance told us not long ago that Avenged Sevenfold doesn't take its success for granted: ["We're not the kind of people to just take a break and say everything's going good, you know, let's rest on our laurels, act like rock stars -- we take it very seriously and we certainly aren't just celebrating and doing a victory lap. We're focused on making our fans happy, keeping each other happy, so we can do this forever."]
The first image from Metallica's upcoming IMAX 3D movie, Metallica Through The Never, has been published by Entertainment Weekly. The photo shows the main character, a Metallica crew member played by Dane DeHaan, standing against a backdrop of flames and what appears to be an angry mob of fans. In the story, DeHaan is assigned with carrying out a mysterious task for the band as they perform at a local arena. Producer Charlotte Hugginsdescribed the film as "a dramatic movie in which a concert takes place."
Huggins added that the two shows filmed for the movie -- along with their elaborate stage production -- were done by Metallica solely for the film, explaining, "It took me seven months of working with Metallica until I grasped that they had created this very complex, very elaborate show just for our film. After we were done, that entire stage got packed up and put away."
