Star Wars fans, meet your new Queen!
There are a lot of famous Star Trek fans out there — Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis and yours truly — but none of us are as rich as King Abdullah of Jordan. The Middle Eastern monarch, who was once an extra in an episode of Star Trek: Voyager, has given the green light to a $1.5 billion Star Trek-inspired theme park that will boldly take Jordan where no Gulf state has gone before. While the theme park will not be powered by dilithium crystals, it will utilize green technology in order to lower its carbon footprint.
All electricity at Jordan’s Star Trek theme park will be provided by renewable energy, while a center will be constructed to educate visitors about the importance and benefits of renewable energy sources and eco-friendly practices like graywater harvesting.
The Star Trek theme park (which I’m hoping will be called The Starfleet Green Academy) will be situated in the Jordanian coastal city of Aqaba and will be spread over a 74 hectare area. It will consist of 17 entertainment zones and a four-star hotel among many other things.
Paramount Reaction and the Rubicon Group are partnering with architectural firm Callison to create the futuristic theme park. According to initial reports, the park will “wow visitors with a 23rd century multi-sensory experience that will incorporate highly advanced visual and sound effects to give the people coming in the park a real-time feel of things. The technology which will go into building the Red Sea Astrarium Park will be unlike any other and they will be truly state of the art.”
We are guessing holodecks, transporters and shuttlecrafts will not become available.
The cult fave blaxploitation badass BLACK DYNAMITE is coming back to hand out more beatdowns, but not in a sequel just yet.
The hard-hittin’ lady-pleasin’ street machine is coming to Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim next year, and we’ve got a couple of stills from the show to give you an idea of how it’ll look. The Black Dynamite Animated Series further chronicles the exploits of Black Dynamite and his crew. Executive produced by Carl Jones (The Boondocks, Freaknik: The Musical), the series features the voice talents of Michael Jai White, Tommy Davidson, Kym Whitley, Byron Minns, Clifton Powell and JB Smoove.
But that ain’t all, fool. Next year will also see the one-shot comic “Black Dynamite: Slave Island”, with a story by director Scott Sanders, Michael Jai White and Byron Minns. Check out some artwork below. The story follows our hero as he seeks to put an end to a mysterious island… where an insidious 19th century legacy of The Man still exists.
And on top of that, on Saturday October 9th at the New York Comic Con, there will be a panel and special screening of the film, plus an early sneak of the animated footage. Probably our best bet for any updates on a live-action sequel, too. Dig.

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.
