#ForGrownups - CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III Revealed...
There's a November Holiday that I look forward to each year, and that's the release of a new CALL OF DUTY game. This year, it looks as if I'll have to finally make the upgrade to an XBOX ONE, though, as CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III has been revealed for a November 6 release (dubbed "The New Black Friday"), and this time around it's going current-gen-only. Available for Sony PLAYSTATION 4, Microsoft XBOX ONE and PC, the game's first reveal trailer can be viewed below, and pre-orders are already up through Amazon, Gamestop and Best Buy.Call of DutyCall of Duty: Black Ops IIIActivisionThe Rolling StonesTreyarchVideo Gamesfor Grownups
The Shellraiser Just Got an Upgrade: Michael Bay Reveals TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2 Vehicles...
The folks over at Playmates Toys have some work to do. Last year, the girls and I were thrilled to add the TMNT "Turtle Assault Van" to our collection here at Rock Father HQ. Whatever you call it - The Party Wagon, the Battle Shell, the Shellraiser, or even the "Cowabunga Carl Party Van" - the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES have had many variations on the vehicle they use to get around, and at the end of last year's Michael Bay-produced live-action film, the Turtles got the "Assault Van." While it was only in one scene, it made for a cool toy - one that's still used daily (and often becomes an argument with the neighbor kids). For next year's TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES sequel, the boys are going a little bit "bigger," and their new ride has appeared in pictures on Bay's website. Based on a garbage truck with the words "TARTARUGA BROS" emblazoned on its side, the new TMNT truck looks to be borrowing a lot from the "New Battle Shell" from a decade ago, which featured a logo that said "Tortuga Bros. Moving." We're gonna need an action figure-scale version of this as soon as possible, ok?Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesTEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES 2TMNTMichael BayPlaymates Toys
Thoughts on JARED LETO as THE JOKER in the Upcoming SUICIDE SQUAD Film?
One thing that's certain with comic book heroes and villains is that they're moldable... changeable... adaptable. On the big screen (and the small one), every filmmaker that approaches a property is given certain freedoms to put a personal stamp on the characters, and that's something that can be exceptionally challenging - and daunting - especially when dealing with a character who has already been presented in several beloved forms. It's no different than when a new creative team approaches the same characters on the printed page - and that happens far more often than what audiences ever see on the screen. Reimagining a character is not an easy task, and "good" or "bad" tends to be a matter of passionate personal preference - and the general path of reaction is the same, and no property has seen it more than the world of DC Comics' BATMAN. Michael Keaton as BATMAN? No! Ben Affleck as BATMAN? No! Heath Ledger as THE JOKER... The kid from 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU? Absolutely not! (posthumous Oscar). And here we are again, with the first-look at JARED LETO as THE JOKER from Warner Bros. upcoming SUICIDE SQUAD film. Revealed by Writer/Director David Ayer on twitter yesterday as part of the #Joker75 celebration, the latest version of "Mr. J" may be the most divisive yet - and we haven't even seen him in action...The JokerSUICIDE SQUADNew Suicide SquadDavid AyerComic BooksComicsBatmanJared LetoDC ComicsDC EntertainmentWarner Bros
