Nerd News: Dopplegangers, The Tempest, Wookie coats and more

Vol. 1, Issue 16

I've had way too much caffeine today. Just warning you ahead of time.


And also, these shoes. Some of the Star Wars/ADIDAS Originals make no sense, but a few are total lust items.

In TV news:
This list of 22 TV dopplegangers is a hoot. (BOOOOO Bolivia!)

Get your very own Tron Legacy light bike suit here!

Moving on to movies, this Tempest trailer looks wicked. I'm a little nonplussed by Russell Brand being in it, but I have a huge lady crush on Helen Mirren. And I love Shakespeare adaptations.

Some interesting articles:

Some more great (fake) movie posters:

Some more great (real) HP7 posters:

And finally, I leave you with the brand-spanking new The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader international trailer.

Have a great evening!


  1. Thanks for the heads up on the Tempest. It is one of my favorite Shakespear plays.

  2. I had no idea about the Chronicles of Narnia series coming back. Woot!

  3. DT-I really like the idea of Prospero being a woman. It fits, haha.

    Diana-Yeah! I was so glad to see that someone had picked it up. I enjoyed the first two movies, and while they weren't amazing, I thought they told the stories well.

  4. Eep.

    The Great Gatsby. Leo. Amanda. I cannot wait for that.

    Also. Snapey. I haz a sad.

    In other news, I signed up for Notes from The Universe the day you posted that entry, and it would appear that said Universe has nothing to say to me, as I haven't received anything.

    Ah, well.

  5. Well that's just lame. Perhaps The Universe's assistant is on vacation this week?
