I just want you to know that you're doing a great job, and we're all counting on you.
- So this Fall Out Boy album...thing...whatever, the thing they're calling Save Rock & Roll is now coming even SOONER. The original May release date has been scrapped and pushed up to April 16th worldwide because, according to their website, the album's already done. I guess they want a couple of months to promote it, but not TOO many months. Okay.
- According to Ozzy Osbourne, the upcoming Black Sabbath album, 13, is the most important one of his career. This is, of course, the first Sabbath album to include Ozzy, Tony Iommi, and Geezer Butler in many, many years, so you can see why he'd think that. We'll find out if it was worth it in June.
- Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) has joined the cast of X-Men: Days of Future Past, according to director Bryan Singer. Given Dinklage's stature, it's rumored that he may be playing Puck, the acrobatic mutant of Canadian team Alpha Flight in the comic series. The movie launches July 18th of next year, so we'll hopefully find out before then.
- As the Amazing Spider-Man 2 shoot continues, rumor has it the crew filmed a scene in a cemetery in Queens, NY yesterday...but who's funeral would that be? Has anyone considered that, since we never saw Uncle Ben's funeral, it could just be a flashback to that? Movie's out on May 2nd, 2014, for the record.
- That Deadpool game from High Moon Studios and Activision is out sooner than you think. They've set a loose release date of sometime this summer, so before you know it, you could be slicing heads and perforating bodies with the Merc With a Mouth on your gaming machines of sorts. Or something.
- ...but you'll be waiting a little longer for Naughty Dog's The Last of Us, which has been pushed back from its May 7th date to June 14th. The PS3 exclusive needs a little more time for icing, not baking, according to the developers--in other words, it's technically sound, but they want to polish it. Fair enough.
Enjoy the weekend, do something new, and I'll see you back here Monday morning. 'Til then, maniacs...ROCK!
