Happy Monday! Or whatever. Here's how the week starts:
- Led Zeppelin is reuniting tonight! Well, kinda. Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones will be appearing on the Late Show with David Letterman to plug the Celebration Day film, and though they won't be performing, they will be doing a joint sit-down interview with Dave about the movie.
- Muse was forced to cancel a series of upcoming overseas shows due to singer Matt Bellamy breaking his foot, but it looks like he'll be able to get back to it by about a week from today when the band hits Helsinki, Finland...he'll just be on crutches, is all.
- The weekend box office wrap-up...well, you may as well look at last week's, as the top six movies are all in the exact same order, with Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 holding onto its death-grip on the top, and Skyfall right behind it. Brad Pitt's Killing Them Softly opened softly (see what I did there?) at #7, his worst opening since '92's Cool World (and yet, still profitable!), while this week's other new opening The Collection came in at #10.
- Though Matthew Vaughn is expected to be in the director's chair for Star Wars: Episode VII, Disney hasn't yet confirmed anything, fueling rumors of who else may be in contention. Looks like the other two front-runners for the job are Jon Favreau and David Fincher, both of whom are very stylistic directors, but I honestly can't see either handling this franchise properly...well, maybe Favreau.
- The Humble Bundle concept has been adapted by THQ for a great digital deal prior to Christmas. To help the ailing company, you can purchase Company of Heroes (and its expansions), Red Faction: Armageddon, Metro 2033, and Darksiders as a bundle package for whatever you like, and if you pay over the recommended amount, you'll also get Saints Row: The Third. Not bad!
- Sony's Black Friday sales numbers are now available, and it seems the at the PS3 sold 525,000 units over the holiday shopping period, while the Vita only sold 160,000. Time for a price cut on that handheld yet, Sony? (Please?)
'Til Tuesday, my friends...ROCK!
