Shut Up and Rock -- 4/4/13

Apr 04, 2013 -- 6:54am

It's for you, man.  I think it's the Devil.
 

  • MTV.com is soon to wrap up their March Musical Madness bracket challenge (since, you know, it's not March anymore), and in round four, Green Day is up against 30 Seconds to Mars...and it's a close one.  Last I noticed, the voting was almost split perfectly down the middle, so if you have a favorite, go vote today!
     
  • If you want to know what the best air-drumming album of all time is, you ask a drummer.  BBC did just that, and Dave Grohl's opinion?  David Bowie's Let's Dance, but closely followed by AC/DC's Back in Black--in fact, Grohl says, "anyone would air-drum to those albums."  I think I'd personally go with AC/DC over Bowie.
     
  • Remember Jack the Giant Slayer?  You know, came out in theaters back in February, didn't do so hot?  Yeah, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are set to lose anywhere between $120 and $140 million on that flick due to lackluster attendance.  Ouch.  Worst of all, the director is Bryan Singer--yeah, the one that screwed up Superman Returns and is directing the next X-Men movie.  Uh-oh...
     
  • Zoe Saldana is reportedly up for a role in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, where she would play Gamora, an assassin and adopted daugther of Thanos (though in the comics, she does turn on him.)  We already know Chris Pratt will play Star-Lord and Dave Batista is Drax the Destroyer, and filming begins this June.
     
  • Disappointing news yesterday, as Disney announced the official shutdown of LucasArts, the media division of Lucasfilm that produced such classics as Knights of the Old Republic and non-Star Wars affairs, like Day of the Tentacle.  This also means that awesome Star Wars: 1313 game has been canceled, along with several other projects, as Disney reappropriates the staff to other projects and lays off others.  Sad day, indeed.
     
  • Will Sony have trouble producing enough Playstation 4 consoles when the system launches later this year?  It's possible, considering over 900,000 people have signed up for early info on the PS4, and 34% of them say they plan to purchase it at launch.  We'll see if the company takes notice and ramps up production in time to cover their ground.
     

Finally Friday?  ALMOST!  'Til then...ROCK!
--HH
