Finally Friday looks like this:
- Chino Moreno of the Deftones is doing the rounds to promote the group's new album, Koi No Yokan, and he mentioned along the way that he's not a big fan of the dubstep movement, though older electronic music (Depeche Mode, Kraftwerk, etc.) still appeal to him. That new album will be available November 12th, while the first single, "Tempest," will drop next Tuesday.
- The Hangover Part III has begun filming, and though there's not much available in the way of details about the plot, we do know this: Cheryl Cole is rumored for a cameo, Mike Tyson will be back to some degree, Ken Jeong will get an expanded role (ugh), and this will definitely be the last film in the series (probably for the best.) The film's tagline also suggests that there will be no wedding this time, but instead, the Wolfpack may be heading out on a road trip.
- Here's a rapid-fire edition of "Why Do You Hate My Childhood?" for you: Warner Bros. is re-releasing The Wizard of Oz in 3D (either in theaters or on Blu-Ray; we're not sure yet which), and someone is making movies of Monopoly and Hungry Hungry Hippos. Enjoy.
- Downloadable content is the name of the game today, with Nintendo releasing three course packs for New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS, and more planned for release by mid-November. Meanwhile, Mass Effect 3 will get the "Retaliation" multiplayer pack next Tuesday for free, which includes new character classes, weapons, enemies, gameplay modes, and much more.
Out Monday, so we'll do the weekend edition tomorrow, then back to the grind Tuesday! 'Til then, ROCK!
