AH-NULD! I gotta stop doing my awful Schwarzenegger impression on the air...
- Limp Bizkit has announced that they are not, in fact, dead in the water, as they'll be joining Iron Maiden, Mastodon, Rammstein, and more at the UK Download Festival June 14th through the 16th this year. No word yet on whether or not Fred Durst will continue to attempt to rap like it's 2002.
- Dave Grohl's Sound City documentary film will be getting a brief theatrical run in limited areas starting January 31st. The film's premiere will be at Sundance this weekend, followed by that massive Sound City Players performance we've been discussing for what seems like weeks now.
- An anonymous, third-party vendor called "MarkMonitor" has been snapping up domain names related to "Batman" and "Arkham" lately, such as batmanarkhamuniverse.com and batmanarkhamlegend.com. We now know that the vendor is a company that film studios use to register domains anonymously, with Paramount using them last year to get the domain for Star Trek: Into Darkness in advance. Warner Bros. has used them as well...could there be a new Batman film on the way, or is this for a sequel to the video game, Arkham City?
- Land, ho! The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise will continue, for better or worse, into a fifth entry. Disney has tapped screenwriter Jeff Nathanson (Catch Me If You Can) to either write or rewrite the script, depending on if they use the draft that Terry Rossio wrote after completing his work on the fourth entry in the series.
- Square-Enix says they haven't forgotten about the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X for the PS3 and Vita they promised back at the 2011 Tokyo Game Show. It's coming soon...supposedly. Nothing to see here. Move along.
- Would you believe someone turned down a chance to work on the Call of Duty series? Gearbox Software head Randy Pitchford did. Said it wouldn't challenge his team enough to bother with working on it. Seriously.
Half-way there...almost! 'Til Wednesday, my friends...ROCK!
