Nerd News: Doctor Who minisode, Luke and Leia are back, new dinosaurs and more

Vol. 3, Issue 43

Tonight's the end of an era for me—the premiere of Breaking Dawn: Part 2. Say what you will about the Twilight franchise, but I used to be a huge fan and although that feeling has waned some in recent years, I'm looking forward to it. (We're all allowed our guilty pleasures!)

In movie news:

Here are a bunch of trailers:

In TV news:

This painting, and this fun hypothesis about how the Ponds were the inspiration/models, makes me smile.


So cute! (The story at the link about an idea Alan Tudyk had for an episode is pretty amusing, too.)

In comic news:

This new Tumblr, Diana Prince's Diary (think Bridget Jones with Wonder Woman), is just starting out, but it's already super entertaining.

In SCIENCE! and tech news, from The Mister:

I found a few items, too:

I really enjoy art nouveau illustrations, especially when they feature lovely ladies like these.

And this Princess Bride set is great, too.

In gaming news, from TGG:

I ran across these bits:

The Disney/Lucasfilm merger has people's creative juices flowing. (Thanks to TCC for the second set.)

  1. I'm loving all the Disney/Star Wars mashup art. Death Star PR changed their logo to one similar to the blue Disney logo with the Death Star in place of the castle.

    And I really like those art nouveau images (all of them, not just the ones in this issue). Plus they choose awesome subjects. I mean really, who does Ferngully references these days? Awesome people, that's who.

    2. it's the only show i've purposefully gone to a store and bought a season of just for him. we have lots of t.v. for me (giant nerd that i am) but it's the only thing he's ever sat down and watched the way i do with alias or x-files. (though he is coming around to the doctor)
