NEWS! What? News! I’ve got some news. About so many, many different things. Well, mainly about movies because, well, I enjoy teh movies.

First!
Nolan Dishes
So, Inception is the next movie coming up by the director behind The Dark Knight (Christopher Nolan). Now, I posted a trailer a while ago. And I know what you’re thinking. That trailer, Inception? Well, that was the bee’s knees. Yes, it was. So, Nolan has started to talk a little more about it. Thankfully, it’s not full of Spoilers. I’ll put the quote up for your viewing delight.

“I grew up watching James Bond films and loving those and watching spy movies with their globetrotting sensibility…. We get to do that here, not just geographically but also in time and dimensions of reality as well. We get to make a movie that’s expansive, I suppose you’d say, in four dimensions.”
Oh, Nolan, you tease! Not three dimensions? Whaaa

Second!
So, I said I didn’t read comic books growing up. Well, that’s true. I do read some graphic novels and I did read Y: The Last Man which was straight up awesome. Anyway, Mark Millar, the man behind 300 is talking about a new project he’s working on. Batman In Reverse
It’s a new series and in the link <—- he talks about who might direct the movie. The post mentions two heavy hitters: Sam Raimi and Guy Ritiche. Personally, if it were between the two, I'd pick Raimi. Oh, wait. I haven't told you what it's about. Silly me. Essentially, it's what if Bruce Wayne was evil? A supervillian that had all the benefits that Bruce Wayne had and he just tortured police officers for the heck of it. Sounds entertaining!

Third!
For you pop-culture savvy people, you’ll know what’s going down at NBC. What? You don’t know. Come on. The network heads at NBC are trying to fix their primetime Leno mistake. Before I talk about what the “fix” is, I’ll tell you what the Leno mistake is/was. So, Conan O’Brien moved up to the Tonight Show and Leno…well he got a primetime slot at 10 bumping out a ton of Dramas and scheduled programming. Who thought that would be a good idea? Well, the network heads didn’t think it through. They lost millions and millions of dollars on the switch.

SO, now, they want to push Leno to 11:35 and Conan to 12:05. Essentially destroying the Tonight Show Legacy and messing up their whole late night schedule. Tssk. Tssk. NBC, you should know better (PS, they’re losing 200 million dollars at the Olympics). Check out the full story: Conan The Barbarian
