All kinds of new music this morning, from Surrender the Fall to In This Moment, Bullet for My Valentine and more--very cool stuff!
- Plenty more new music on the way too from several people, including the Black Keys, who are back in the studio this week to work on their eighth studio album. Tool is also hard at work on their fifth album; though frontman Maynard Keenan's vocals haven't been laid down yet, the instrumentals are almost finished. Both bands plan to have these new offerings out by the end of the year.
- That 3D re-release of Jurassic Park will also get a very limited IMAX run--just a week, in fact, from April 5th to the 12th. This is due in part to Universal's next major film, Oblivion (starring Tom Cruise), heading to IMAX theaters on the 12th as well. Still...three-story tall T-Rex in 3D? Yes, please.
- Could Independence Day 2 go forward without Will Smith? Bill Pullman thinks so. Although he admits the project has been in developmental hell for years now, Pullman says versions of the script have been written with and without Smith involved, and he's excited about what would happen with his own character, President Whitmore. But the real question, of course, is this: without Will Smith, who would punch aliens and welcome them to Earf?
- Activision has officially confirmed "Revolution" as the new DLC pack for Call of Duty: Black Ops II. As we reported before, it'll include four new multiplayer maps and a new zombie map, but there's more! The new zombie mode, Turned, allows players to actually control zombies for the first time in an attempt to turn a single human player, and a new weapon will be included too: the Peacemaker, an SMG/assault rifle hybrid that is decidedly not Wyatt Earp's six-shooter. The pack is due out in just a few weeks.
- Remember Three Dog, the radio DJ from Fallout 3? His voice actor, Erik Todd, posted to his Twitter yeseterday that there "may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!" Todd went on to say that he was "given permission to release that tease," suggesting that Bethesda could be close to announcing the next installment of the Fallout series, which is rumored to be taking place in Boston, since the team has been researching there recently. Fingers crossed, indeed!
FINALLY FRIDAY almost, boys and girls! Until then...ROCK!
