As if seeing James Bond’s car in the flesh wasn’t enough, look who I happened to bump into at the play.com videogame event on the weekend. Only thing missing was the Lightsaber. Hmmm, maybe that explains the lost expression.
Hit the jump for a closer look into the dark side, and a great polish job.

On the weekend, Wembley Stadium-England’s new home of Football (I guess Soccer, for you guys in the states) was packed with some of the latest video games, many of which hadn’t been seen by the public before in Europe, until now.
Courtesy of online entertainment store-play.com- the public and press were given the opportunity to get a look and test games such as Robert Ludlum’s Bourne Conspiracy, Time Crisis for the Playstation 3, Lego Indiana Jones and more.
Be sure to check back for more on some of the games that were on show, including cosplayers, a Rock Band contest and more of the fun that was had.
But for now, check out the car above, which was on display at the show. It’s the actual car that was used in the filming of the new James Bond flick-Quantum of Solace. Looking at it just made me want to hop in and pretend I work for MI5.
Cloverfield was a fantastic movie and it did pretty well, too. Off its miniature $25 Million budget, it managed to get back $66 Million. This meant that, according to standard Pop Culture Rules, a sequel is imminent. Matt Reeves has confirmed that he abides the Rules, ’cause he has started work on Cloverfield’s sequel!
Matt is currently in talks with Paramount about Cloverfield 2, according to FirstShowing.net – but hell, it’s official! Hit the jump to find out more about this!

Superhero movie fans mourn, because the highly-awaited Justice League movie from Warner Bros. has hit a rock, stumbled and fallen down an inescapable ravine with no Lassie to help. The movie, which was slated for a 2009 release, with production to start Spring has been put on hold. Production will now most likely start in late summer or fall (if at all)!
Why, you ask? The studio wants tax breaks for shooting in Australia, and got no response to their proposal. They also weren’t fully satisfied with the script, and wanted some more help with it, but the current writers’ strike leaves their options to drooling Justice League fanfic writers, which is not a good idea. Plus, the film is in a sorry state with the writer’s strike already, but their SAG deal expires in June, and the movie needs to be completed by then!
As far as the cast goes, most of the cast should still be available for the planned late summer-fall production. The cast itself, for those not in the know, will feature Arnie Hammer as Batman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, and (rumors follow) Scott Porter as Superman, Common as Green Lantern and Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul.
The repercussions here are that we are in a shortage of superhero flicks. The Dark Knight, the show-stealer is coming out this very year, while a Superman sequel’s fate is currently unknown. The inevitable Spider-Man 4 will take a while. That leaves us with the new upcoming Hulk movie and the planned Captain America movie. Okay, maybe not even that less, but hell.
