I didn’t Photoshop this, I swear.
What happens when you have Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil series, Devil May Cry, and Viewful Joe, added the director of Killer 7 and No More Heroes, Goichi Suda, as will as sound director of the Silent Hill series, Akira Yamaoka? You get this short, but very entertaining survivor horror game. Is it fun? You bet it is. Is it action packed? Why, of coarse. Is it full of fowl language, grotesque monsters, and insane characters? Yes, yes, and yes. If you think Japanese games do not go far enough in the R rated gaming department, then prepare your eyes and ears, to some of the most obscene dialogues and sexual innuendoes ever to grace the video game market.
Sure why not, if he can pull off being a young Robin Hood, he can pull this off.
EXCLUSIVE: Whether paying homage to Marlon Brando’s cameo in “Superman” or just wanting splashy marquee name, Christopher Nolan had all along been seeking an A-list thesp for Jor-El, Superman’s biological father, since agreeing to godfather the franchise reboot “Man of Steel” for Warner Bros.
He’s got his man, and it’s Russell Crowe.
The mercurial Aussie is in negotiations to take the role in “Man of Steel,” which Zack Snyder is on board to direct. Brit thesp Henry Cavill set to play Superman. Warner Bros. had no comment on Crowe’s casting.
Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon have already joined the cast. David Goyer penned the script and developed the story with Nolan who, as is his way, has kept plot details under wraps.
Charles Roven will produce along with Emma Thomas, Nolan and Deborah Snyder.
With production set to start next month, Jor-El was one of the last roles to cast, though they also are looking for a big name to play Superman’s biological mother.
Brando was 54 when he appeared in Richard Donner’s 1978 classic; Crowe is 47. Other names that had gone out for the role included Sean Penn and Clive Owen, Crowe was the final choice.
Crowe is currently filming “The Man With the Iron Fists” for Universal.
He is repped by WME.

This has to be the prettiest, weirdest, and most disturbing game I ever played. From the moment you start playing the game, you know you’re in for something very different. The art style and character designs are probably some of the most creative in game presentation. Some of the level designs you wont belief until you see it for yourself. The whole story is a trip into one psychotic episode after another. However, there are still a few things that might get on your gaming nerves, some of the levels overstayed their welcome, and the game play does get repetitive. Controls and a few in-game cliches really do amp up the frustration level when you’re trying to do time events, and fighting multiple enemies at the same time.
Green Lantern needed to be a lot more space focused, with a lot more action scenes, and way less romance on earth moments. I’ll tell you what though, even though I expected more from this movie than what I saw, I did not come out of it thinking it was a horrible movie. It had some really long drawn out scenes between Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, but I still liked watching their characters. The CGI was not amazing, but the creative powers of the Green Lantern ring was shown in its full affect. The main villain was not that menacing to be honest, but at least there was a back story to him. Green Lantern had a lot of flaws, but for a summer movie about a comic book character first written in the 1950′s, it was not the worst thing you could of seen, could of been better though. More space battles darn it!
Wang Kang, 25, strutted into his office in Shanghai dressed as Iron Man from the 2008 action film.
Wearing a costume made of high density foam, wires and tubes, the telecoms worker marched through his company’s corridors gathering a crowd as he went.
Mr Kang spent three months creating the suit, which weighs almost eight stone and cost him 3,000 yuan (£280). The impact though must have been worth it.
“No colleagues knew my mission. Some of them froze there seeing me approach. Some were even screaming in fear,” he said.
Mr Kang has since become an internet celebrity after an image of him in the costume on June 3 was posted on Chinese micro blogging site weibo.com, which is similar to Twitter.
oh the mid 90′s are back! If you don’t have a Netflix account, shame on you. Streaming starts on the 15th
Now all I ask is to have the same treatment for Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad
