  1. Three of them, so far. Don't get your hopes up too high, though: https://www.thefarside.com/new-stuff Plus a picture of a mad scientist/artist and his cow Igor, which I can't see in full on the website but has been used to illustrate several articles about his return, like this one: https://www.theverge.com/21317458/far-side-new-comics-creator-gary-larson-25-years-digital-tablet
  2. This is a good blog post on how if you catch something scary on childhood TV at the right age, it can imprint itself onto your brain for long afterwards... http://www.dirtyfeed.org/2020/07/condition-red/
  3. The Steam version is currently on sale for £6.24 (75% off): https://store.steampowered.com/app/758330/Shenmue_I__II/
  4. Currently free on Comixology: Black Panther, Blue Marvel, Shuri, Ironheart, and Dwayne McDuffie's runs on Damage Control and Fantastic Four: https://www.comixology.co.uk/Marvel-Free-Comics/page/23611
  5. At the end of Thandie Newton's new Vulture interview, a discussion of Paul Haggis mentioned his Scientology, which turned into a discussion about working with Tom Cruise on Mission: Impossible 2. It sounds like it was pretty emotional for her at the time, but it's one of the lighter stories in that interview. https://www.vulture.com/article/thandie-newton-in-conversation.html
  6. You can't say something like that and then not explain why! (Or at least link to a wiki page or forum post explaining it.)
  7. Illusory Wall has published a very thorough video on how he and others worked out how the level range restrictions for summoning and PvP work in Dark Souls 2. Apparently DS2 is the odd one out, compared to the system used in the other four Soulsborne games:
  8. Rachael Stott illustrated an Inside No 9 fanzine. Worth downloading! The Once Removed piece is a clever idea... https://www.rachaelstott.co.uk/downloads
  9. At the risk of turning this into the "rock stars being lecherous toward underage girls" thread: Jailbait by Motörhead
  10. From what I can tell, that comes from Kevin Smith's comments in this livestream. In the clips below he breaks down the Fisher's tweet word-by-word, and he says that the "unprofessional" accusation could refer to what he heard from a VFX person who was on-set for both Snyder's principal photography and Whedon's reshoots: The full thing is from 1:33:40 in this video (the discussion goes on for about 15 minutes afterwards):
  11. Following the thread I just made about David Koepp putting his movie scripts online - here's some more screenplay news:
  12. The list includes most of his Spielberg and DePalma collaborations, as well as the films he directed himself (Secret Window, Stir of Echoes, The Trigger Effect). Some of them are only the final shooting scripts, but some of them also have more than one early draft (and in the case of Panic Room, a 27-page pitch document), which IMO are likely to be more interesting to read and compare to the final movies. I'm not sure how many of these have been circulating for years on script websites, but it's nice to have them available online officially. https://davidkoepp.com/script-archive/ Carlito's Way Death Becomes Her Jurassic Park The Lost World: Jurassic Park Men In Black 3 Mission: Impossible Panic Room The Shadow Snake Eyes Spider--Man (including early drafts from 1999 where Electro is the villain, and still begin with a "based on a treatment by James Cameron" credit. Though the opening voiceover stayed almost the same in the final film!) Spider-Man 2 (when it was still going to be called The Amazing Spider-Man, eight years before another Spidey film used that title. But downloading seems to be blocked on the first of these files.) The Taking of Pelham 123 (the Tony Scott remake) The War of the Worlds Zathura: A Space Adventure And there are a few scripts there that never got made, like Blackwater, Mr Hughes (both DePalma collaborations), The Superconducting Supercollider of Sparkle Creek, Wisconsin... and a potential fourth Indiana Jones film, which apparently was going to be called "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull"?
  13. Marvel has bought some rights: https://www.marvel.com/articles/comics/marvel-comics-to-publish-new-alien-and-predator-stories I like the way they phrased the announcement as THREE franchises: Bread! Eggs! And Bread vs. Eggs!
