Sigh. It seems that, no matter what our intrepid Henry supporters do in Neverland, Peter Pan is always one step ahead of them, laughing gleefully at how they're playing right into his tiny hands. This is starting to become frustrating, and it also makes me wonder why Pan, if he's so all-knowing and powerful, doesn't just wipe Emma and the gang off the map and stick to the business of manipulating poor Henry. I know, I know. All reasons will be revealed in time. But in the meantime, all of the ingenious plotting and creative reasoning feels futile and depressing. It also might be nice if Pan, with all his powers, could turn on the lights in Neverland. Just a thought.

It's not unusual these days for websites that cover comic books to have a fair amount of movie-related material that they generate, but it's less common for gaming sites. I guess we're going to have to get used to that, though, as more and more of the big giant gaming properties start to get adapted and studios try to handle publicity in different ways. I don't mind going to Comic-Con to cover movie news for you guys, but for the next few years, are we also going to have to adapt to going to BlizzCon as well?
Over at Kotaku, one of my favorite gaming blogs, they were covering BlizzCon anyway, and they ended up putting together a pretty great overview of what we might expect from "Warcraft" when Legendary Pictures and Universal release the film in 2015.
Duncan Jones is directing the movie, and I'm eager to see him working on a big canvass. He's a smart director with a strong visual sensibility and an FX-oriented background, and more importantly, he's someone who genuinely loves gaming and that culture and who seems to want to do right by the property he's adapting. At this point, you can't really ask more.

"Out Of The Furnace" opens with an act of casual brutality that is shocking, and it establishes Woody Harrelson as a great white shark, just swimming along, poised for carnage as soon as he smells blood, and there is plenty of blood just waiting to be spilled in this film.
Brad Ingelsby went from insurance sales to working writer when he had a massive spec sale in 2008 for what was then called "The Low Dweller." Ridley Scott was immediately set to direct the film, and Leonardo DiCaprio was the first person attached to star in the film. And while both Scott Free and Appian Way are still listed as production companies on what is now called "Out Of The Furnace," this is something that Relativity Media and Ryan Kavanaugh are personally deeply invested in. Forget the life-changing amount of money they paid to Ingelsby for the spec in the first place, or the bet they're making that Scott Cooper is going to follow up "Crazy Heart" with another awards contender… this is one of those movies that you can tell a company would like to have define what they are and what they'll make.
Scott Cooper’s "Out of the Furnace" received its close-up at AFI Fest Saturday night as the mystery around Relativity Media's late-breaking entry finally dissipated. The director’s "Crazy Heart" follow-up brought an array of reactions, and "shell-shocked," as The Wrap’s Steve Pond put it, may be as apt a description as you'll find. The film seemed to linger at the Roosevelt Hotel after-party with more than a few willing to admit they weren’t entirely sure what to make of it immediately after the credits rolled.
In the middle of the second break of the thirty-ninth season of “Saturday Night Live,” we here at HitFix have some homework for the cast before they return to live TV on November 16th. With the show still struggling to find its identity, we’ve paired up each current cast member with a past one. Why? So those still on the show can watch footage of former Not Ready For Prime Time Players in order to glean inspiration, hone existing skills, and potentially develop new approaches. There’s something to be learned from almost everyone that’s ever performed in Studio 8H (both good and bad), but here are some pairings that we think would improve not only the individuals but also "Saturday Night Live" as a whole.
