Shut Up and Rock -- 11/30/12

Nov 30, 2012 -- 7:46am

Wrap up the week with us!  Here's the last of the week from today:

 

  • The iTunes debut of AC/DC has been immensely successful, with over 48K album downloads thus far and almost 700K individual song downloads.  Back in Black has been the most popular album, while "Thunderstruck" has been the most downloaded individual tune.  The top twelve songs on the Hard Rock digital sales charts were all from AC/DC as of this week.
     
  • The short list of prospected actors to play Peter Quill / Star-Lord in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has been released.  Joel Edgerton, Garret Hedlund, and Jim Sturgess are among the front-runners to play what will likely be the central character of the film when it releases August 1st, 2014.
     
  • In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, legendary director Quentin Tarantino admitted that he thinks Death-Proof, his contribution to the Grindhouse series, was his worst film ever, overall.  Tarantino went on to say that if it was the worst he ever did, he's "good," since "for a left-handed movie, that wasn't so bad."
     
  • More rumors abound concerning the next XBox console from Microsoft.  Bloomberg is reporting that it will likely be released by next Thanksgiving for the 2013 holiday season, and the internal debate at the company seems to be whether it will be revealed at E3 or at its own event.  Well, duh.
     
  • Looks like that Halo 4 map pack leak from yesterday was legit, as the Crimson pack was announced later in the day to be coming along on December 10th, including new maps for the multiplayer mode and a new gameplay mode called "Extraction," similar to a King of the Hill-style of play.  No details on pricing thus far.
     

Enjoy the weekend, and until Monday, ROCK!
