Some movie and video game news for upcoming geeky titles:
Taylor Lautner to Play Stretch Armstrong
Universal Pictures is bringing the Hasbro character to life come 2012. Its going to be a 3D adventure with lots of stretching. I dont know which one of you out there is rooting for this film, but I think for the majority of us out there we question why this character is getting a film. I personally hope that this is an over the top action film thats cheesy yet fun. I just dont think I could take a character named Stretch Armstrong seriously on the silver screen.
The Onslaught of Tron is coming
Lets face it, Tron Legacy visually looks amazing and hopefully will live up to all the hype in my head. Apparently Disney will be backing this film up with a TV show in 2011 and 2012. A third film is being planned for a 2013 release. If you still are on the fence about this film, a new trailer should be coming out with the release of Alice in Wonderland.
Sonic the Hedgehog 4 is coming soon
Its the sequel that every Sonic fanboy has been asking for since 1994. Sonic is returning to his 2D platform days with high definition 3D graphics. Oddly enough the game is going to be coming out in episodic form available this summer on the PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, and iPhone.
The original Xbox is officially dead
Come April 15, 2010 Microsoft will cease its Xbox LIVE service for original Xbox consoles and games. This includes games that are playable via the Xbox 360. So it looks like youll have to put Halo 2 to rest in your game cabinet.
