Comic-Con makes Film & TV Announcement

June 5, 2007


Here it is… the list of films that will be represented at this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego! Superherohype makes a note that THE DARK KNIGHT was NOT announced… its pretty hard to believe that the Batman sequel WON’T be featured, so a later announcement will probably be made on that front. This is, after all, Comic-Con– the biggest event of its kind in the world, the place where studios roll out their movies to the core fanbase who help determine whether their project is the next 300, or the next CATWOMAN.

Here’s what we know you likely will see– I’ve bolded the panels Scramble Network plans to report from (there’s a lot of them!):

  • Alien vs. Predator 2: No Peace On Earth
  • American Gangster
  • Babylon A.D.
  • Balls of Fury
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Beowulf
  • The Bourne Ultimatum
  • Coraline
  • Fred Claus
  • Get Smart
  • The Golden Compass
  • Hellboy 2: The Golden Army
  • Heroes
  • I Am Legend
  • The Incredible Hulk
  • Indiana Jones 4
  • The Invasion
  • Iron Man
  • Lost
  • National Treasure: Book of Secrets
  • Resident Evil: Extinction
  • Speed Racer
  • The Strangers
  • Stardust
  • Star Trek
  • Sunshine
  • Sweeney Todd
  • 30 Days of Night
  • Trick ‘r Treat
  • Wanted
  • Where the Wild Things Are
  • White Out

Looks like a great year… expect plenty of news to be made in San Diego that week!

Lost Finale gets Ack’ed

June 1, 2007

You knew it was coming… our favorite part:

So then the Others went to attack the camp, and Sayid was like BULLSEYE! And Bernard was like BULLSEYE! And Jin was like “…udders?”

Great stuff, as usual.

A Little More Lost…

May 31, 2007

As a fledling baby blog, we love seeing our visits spike up with every post we do on Lost. And since we spent half the night combing over Lost blogs and articles, how about a few more to tide us over? Maybe this can become a regular Wednesday feature to get us through the months without new episodes.

Dark UFO has a very cool “Season 4 Prediction League” that we’ll be joining, you should too.

The Tailsection has some mild spoilers re: Season 4, mostly dealing with the structure of the series.

The Tailsection also has more on Ben’s journal (thank God for HD).

And today, Doc Jensen has one more look at the finale (just like the rest of us), with some brilliant insight. We’re in agreement with one reader that Season Six might end up being a “return to the island” for Jack & Co.

A few more predictions/thoughts for good measure:

  • The island is in some kind of time loop: Richard the hostile never ages… the strange allusion to a musician programming the code to the scrambling device Charlie disabled… the eerie similarites between Locke and the screencap of Jacob… Mikhail’s nine lives… Desmond’s abilites are probably the best proof there is. Remember,”only fools are trapped by space and time.” Are the Losties somehow repeating their lives? That would explain the flash forward, with Kate not in jail and Jack’s dad alive again.
  • Charles Widmore, Penny’s father, will end up playing a major part in the Dharma Initiative/Hanso Foundation.
  • We’ll see Libby again in Season 4. But not on the island.
  • “They’re building a runway,” could end up being a pretty important line.
  • Naomi was lying, obviously. But she knew a great deal about the Losties, and she clearly didn’t get the information from The Others. Was she from a future where the plane DID crash?

Just a note: we reserve the right to be waaaaay off on all of the above.

Lost Withdrawal

May 30, 2007

This is our first Wednesday without a new episode of Lost in nearly 4 months, so its understandable if many of you might be suffering from some symptoms of withdrawal. To help get you through the day, we’ve got some in-depth analysis of last week’s amazing season finale.

First off, TV Squad has the full text of the newspaper article that reduced Jack to tears.

Over at Pop Candy, Whitney has a final edition of her famous “Best-of” Lost thread comments, with plenty of great insight as always.

lostblog.net has a full recap of the episode, as does Lostpedia.

And if you really want to go crazy, there’s the whole board over at the Fuselage.

Finally, my predictions based on the episode and all that research:

  • It’s Locke in the casket.
  • The Losties may be cyclical, and Charlie may have programmed the scrambling device himself.
  • The island is located somewhere, somehow, up North near Canada.
  • The boat belongs to The Hanso Foundation, possibly the Helgus Antonius.
  • The “he” in future Kate’s life is Sawyer, and she’s pregnant on the island.
  • That really is Walt (probably from the future), not the Monster, or Jacob.
  • We’ll get to see the temple, and what’s in it will explain the 4-toed statue.
  • Christian Shepard is alive again.
