Nerd News: Alter-egos, Brave, The Hunger Games and more

Vol. 2, Issue 44

Let's start things off right this week, shall we?

I. Cannot. Wait. Woody Harrelson as Haymitch still looks really off, but I will save judgement.

In other movie news:
A couple more trailers:

Brave

(via)

Mirror, Mirror (a.k.a. the other Snow White)

I've posted a couple of these superhero alter-ego illustrations before, but here's a full set.

Hilarious. (And yes, I will be seeing Breaking Dawn, Part 1, at midnight tonight.)

Cupcakes+robots+nerdery=awesome. (Thanks, Rebecca!)

Who ya gonna call?

In TV news:
This adorable thing is giving Mollie a run for her money.

The fact that the creators spelled it "rouge" rather than "rogue" (supposedly on purpose?) really irks me, but I like the concept.

SCIENCE!
In gaming news: Game of Thrones is being turned into an MMO. (Thanks, Wes!)

This is so great. And yes, I totally swiped it from George Takai's Facebook page.

How's about they replace Miami with Gallifrey? Side note: I now want an Ood sidekick real bad.

Speaking of Ood:

I'd add TARDIS, sassy companion and comical repartee to these great lists.

It's no Man Calendar (2012 edition coming soon), but I appreciate the eye candy thought behind this Men of Scifi calendar. (Thanks, Wes.)

Lovely stained-glass-esque imaginings.

Such handsome gents.

And finally ... Give it a second. You totally thought it was an actual Doors song, didn't you?

  6. wow where to begin.
    first off i refuse to watch hunger games trailer because after much peer pressure im finaly going to read the books and i want TOTAL IMAGINATION POWER!
    Im unsure of the plot of BRAVE, but ill go just to watch her CGI hair for two hours. MIRROR MIRROR... sketchy, but i like that they are in fact changing the story and turning sw into a rebel.

    But... CSI: MIAMI GALLIGFREY - THAT IS THE BEST THING IVE SEEN IN A WEEK! MY HEART IS MELTING AHHH!!!!!
