BURBANK, CA (August 18, 2010) – Warner Bros. Animation’s breakthrough series Batman Beyond comes to DVD for the first time in its entirety. Featuring DC Comics’ iconic hero, Batman, Batman Beyond: The Complete Series presents nearly 20 hours of animated action spread over 52 episodes, as well as all-new bonus featurettes and a 24-page, 8”x 12” collectible booklet. Batman Beyond: The Complete Series will be distributed by Warner Home Video on November 23, 2010 as a nine-disc limited edition DVD set for $99.98 (SRP).
Batman Beyond: The Complete Series centers on Terry McGinnis, an ordinary teenager … until his father is mysteriously murdered. Suspecting foul play at his father’s company, Wayne/Powers Corporation, Terry meets Bruce Wayne and learns of a secret identity hidden for decades. Now too old to don the cape and cowl as Batman, Wayne refuses to help – so Terry does what any brash young kid would do: steal the Bat-suit and take matters into his own hands! Vowing to avenge his father’s death, Terry dons the high-tech suit tricked out with jetpacks, a supersensitive microphone and even camouflage capabilities in search of his father’s assassin. It’s 52 action-packed episodes following the adventures of the partnership between an ex-crimefighter and his apprentice, starring Will Friedle (Boy Meets World) as Terry McGinnis and, reprising his seminal role, Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) as Bruce Wayne.
Casting throughout the series’ 52 episodes featured award winners from feature films, primetime television and the Broadway stage – from Paul Winfield, Stockard Channing and Seth Green to William H. Macy, Wayne Brady and Teri Garr – not to mention George Lazenby (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service), Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons), Jodi Benson (The Little Mermaid), George Takei (Star Trek) and Henry Rollins (the front man for the rock band, Black Flag).
An all-star production team was headed by executive producer Jean MacCurdy and producers Bruce Timm, Alan Burnett, Glen Murakami and Paul Dini. Writers on the series included Burnett and Dini, as well as Stan Berkowitz, Bob Goodman, Rich Fogel, Hilary Bader and John McCann.
Included in the beautifully custom designed package is a 24-page, 8”x 12” collectible booklet with the inside perspective and artwork from the vaults especially compiled by DC Comics for this release.
Three new bonus features created specifically for the Batman Beyond: The Complete Series are:

W00t… so maybe I just might get a Move after all, damn you Sega for making me spend money on something I want.
Despicable Me is actually a very cute movie. It starts off a little slow, not knowing what the hell is going on and wondering where the minions are. The minions and the little girls are what make this movie. The plot is a simple one: Gru (voice by Steve Carell) was once the world most notorious thief until a new younger thief Vector (voice by Jason Segal) steals an Egyptian Pyramid. In an attempt to win back his notoriety Gru steals a Chinese shrink ray gun to shrink and steal the moon. After Gru steal the shrink ray gun, Vector is right there to steal it from him. So, Gru has to break into his house to steal it back. After several attempts to break into Vector’s compound, Gru sees three little orphan Girl Scouts are welcomed into his compound to sell him some Girl Scout cookies.
Gru changes his plan and adopts these three little girls so he can build robot cookies to send in disguise to allow him to break in and steal the shrink ray gun. This plan goes off without a hitch (sorta). The robot cookies must have been set on a timer because once Gru broke in and stole the gun the robot cookies sealed up the wall and locked Gru inside. Luckily Gru was able to make his way out of the compound without being caught and made on his way with the shrink ray gun.
After the successful re-heist of the shrink ray gun, the little girls want to go to the amusement park for some fun. Gru reluctantly takes them and ends up having a great time and even grows a little closer to these girls.
After successfully stealing the moon, Vector once again manages to get his hands on the stolen moon but kidnapping the girls and demanding a trade for the moon for the girls. Gru agrees and hands over the moon but Vector keeps the girls. Eventually it is brought to Gru that the shrink ray gun eventually reverts whatever was shrunk back into its original size. The rate of reversion is dependent on the size of the object. Large object revert quick than smaller ones. Since the moon is so huge its reversion rate is very quick. Gru must now save the girls from the increase moon. He does and re-adopts the girls, they were taken away from him earlier in the movie, and vows to never let them go again. Gru had a Grinch moment. The movie was very cute and as I said the minions and the little girls made the movie.
Star War fans are the greatest beings in the universe, and this fan made trailer of Lando Calrissian’s own Star Wars movie just cements that even further.
Watch this fan made 70′s style Blaxploitation-type movie, is probably better than episode I, II, and III. The acting alone is better than all three combined
Didn’t expect a new BioShock game for some time, but seems like the guys behind the original game are back. Set in a flying city this time and from the trailer, a lot of back story is going to reveal the plans behind Rapture. Release date expected sometime in 2012, so it gives me time to actually play BioShock 2. Take a look for yourselves below, full press release as well and lots of other goodies.
