No sequel? Yeah right. Whether it makes big $$$ is the determining factor.
Here’s a snippet from the Associated Press story:
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fans should plan to savor every visual morsel when "Watchmen" swoops into movie theaters Friday because the subversive superheroes of the landmark comic book series may never return to the big screen.
"There’s no way I would be involved in a sequel or prequel," said director Zack Snyder, who turned the graphic novel "300" into a 2007 blockbuster.
"Will they make one? I have no idea how you would. The work is the work. This movie is about ideas. Anything else you would do, if you did a sequel to it, misses the point entirely of what ‘Watchmen’ is," he said.
Pining for instant access to episodes of "MacGyver" on your iPhone (and really, who isn’t)? CBS Mobile has you covered with its new TV.com app (iTunes link) released on Thursday. The app offers free streaming video content from CBS (including CBS News, Sports, and Radio), the CW, and Showtime, as well as CBS-owned Cnet and some other places (CBS aquired the TV.com Web site along with its purchase of Cnet in 2008).
I’m not going to apologize for apparently not being among the masses pining to watch TV on a handheld device. Is there really a desire for this and will it generate enough revenue to pay for the bandwidth?
On January 15th, 2009 at 6:00 PM PST and 9:00 PM EST, RiffTrax will be hosting its inaugural RiffTrax Live! Webcast, featuring the former stars and writers of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (Mike Nelson, Kevin “Tom Servo” Murphy and Bill “Crow” Corbett) doing what they do best—sitting in front of a terrible movie and making fun of it.
With all luck, viewers around the country and the world will get a free, live look at how these three comedians practice their craft, courtesy of UStream.tv’s webcasting technology.
The film to be screened is the 1951 short, “Self-Conscious Guy,” one of those unintentionally hilarious informational films. Afterwards, Mike & Co. will participate in a live question and answer session with viewers.
Full details and the event itself will be available at: www.rifftrax.com/live
Fans can also submit advance questions for Mike to the RiffTrax Facebook page.
What is this, you ask? Some lame attempt at chauvinism? An awesome codex of life for your fellow man? No, my friends. This is a book that carefully details the rules that all Bros must live by; a subtle collection of clarity and wisdom passed down through the ages by your fellow Bro, and all contained within the pages of a single book. This lexicon of empowerment can help you solve such situations as “A Bro will, in a timely manner, alert his Bro to the existance of a chick fight.” or “A Bro only claims a fart after first accusing another Bro (Exception: “Pull my finger.”).”
I asked my wife to get this for me during the recent holidays, because I felt it was time to rebolster my “Inner Bro” – He has been beaten down and oppressed for a while now, and now I feel it is time to let him shine through! Women, buy this for your man! Men, embolden yourselves, and claim your Bro status for all eternity
