Back to the grind! Here's how the week starts:
- Although Rage Against the Machine is re-releasing their debut album on its 20th anniversary this month in the box set XX, Tom Morello says the band is unlikely to release new material anytime soon. Morello is currently busy with both politics and a burgeoning solo career.
- Jimmy Page told Rolling Stone Magazine that he had hoped the Led Zeppelin reunion of 2007 would lead to a full tour, but unfortunately, that wasn't the case. With Robert Plant busy with his solo career (seeing a trend here?), it just wasn't in the cards, but of course, the band has the concert film Celebration Day out now to enjoy.
- Despite a long holiday weekend and several new openings, Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2 held strong to the #1 spot at the box office, while Skyfall stayed at #2, and Lincoln continued the holding pattern at #3. Rise of the Guardians disappointed at #4, but Life of Pi surprised execs at #5, as well as Red Dawn at #7.
- Relax, friends: Zachary Quinto isn't leaving the role of Spock...yet, anyway. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Quinto hinted that he might be coming to the "end of an era," which many took to mean his leaving the Star Trek series after the upcoming sequel, Star Trek: Into Darkness. The actor quickly took to Twitter to point out that he was taken out of context and to "let the second one come out before we start talking about a third."
- Another patch has been released for Assassin's Creed III to address several issues in both single and multi-player modes, including respawn issues, glitches that prevented missions from being completed, and others. This is the second major patch of the game since its release on October 30th...maybe some more playtesting is in order over at Ubisoft?
- Nintendo 3DS standout Resident Evil: Revelations has been evaluated by the Korean Ratings board for the XBox 360 and Playstation 3, fueling rumors the game could come to the consoles soon, possibly as a downloadable adventure. No word yet from Capcom on the validity of this.
'Til Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen...ROCK!
