EA Mythic, the company behind Spellbinder: The Nexus ConflictAliens OnlineStarship Troopers: Battlespace, and Dark Age of Camelot, are gearing up to release their newest Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG or MMO for short), Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning

The game features Realm vs. Realm gameplay combat, which means you’ll be fighting with and against other real players in a never ending war of the worlds. You can find out more info about the game at its official site and watch an awesome cinematic for the game below.

How long do you think it will be until they make this into a movie? In the very least an animated feature.

Superman Doomsday
Plot Summary: IMDB Synopsis (warning: spoilers)
Starring: Adam Baldwin (Clark Kent/Superman), Anne Heche (Lois Lane), and James Marsters (Lex Luthor).
Directed by: Lauren Montgomery, Bruce Timm, and Brandon Vietti.

“Superman Doomsday” marks the beginning of a new era for DC Comics animation. Produced in the style Bruce Timm made famous with “Batman: The Animated Series” and “Superman”, this film is adapted straight from one of DC Comic’s most famous storylines (the Death and Return of Superman) and was made for adults. The violence in the film is brutal and unforgiving. Nothing is held back in Doomsday’s rampage, or that of the Eradicator’s (fans of the comic will recognize that name that is sadly never mentioned in the film). One character’s death leaves a nice sized pool of blood and the image of a sheet draped over a murdered 7 year old girl is unsettling. I highly recommend viewing the film before you let anyone under 13 years old watch it.

Fangoria has announced that they will be holding a free screening of the long delayed horror anthology “Trick ‘R Treat” in New York City on October 13th. The screening will be the film’s East Coast premiere and will be introduced by the film’s director Michael Doughtery (co-writer of “X-Men 2” and “Superman Returns”), who will stick around afterwards for an audience Q&A.

The film stars Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker, and Leslie Bibb. IMDB lists the plot of the film as follows; Four interwoven stories that occur on Halloween: An everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.”

It might be a bit premature to say this, but could Guy Ritchie be back? The trailer for his new film, “RockNRolla”, has a vibe and style that reminds me of “Snatch”, and an excellent cast (featuring Gerard Butler, Tom Wilkinson, and Jeremy Piven). I hope the film is as good as the trailer (you can watch it below) and that we are not left with another “Swept Away” or “Revolver”. 

You can also check out the film’s awesome poster here.

Our friends at Indy Mogul helped us make a $15 boom pole, but how do you make a $14 steadycam? Johnny Chung Lee’s website has a step by step guide to creating “the poor man’s steadicam”. He goes over the tools and supplies that you’ll need. He then goes point by point through the process (with pictures), and includes a few samples at the end of his how to.  Worse comes to worse if you decide that it is too much to handle, Lee also sells the cheap steadycam for $39.95 on the site. Click here to see how to build a steadycam for $14.

Or if you don’t like that design, you can try one of these: Camcorder Stabilizer, Detonation Camera Stabilizer, or the $24 Steadycam. Good luck!
