'Adventure Time' movie on the way

Now in its sixth season, the crazily irreverent Cartoon Network animation 'Adventure Time' has only become increasingly popular as audiences embrace the show in the millions weekly, and gobble up all manner of merchandise.

Not content with all that, Cartoon Network's owner, Warner Bros. is now preparing a feature length movie adventure to be produced by 'The Lego Movie' duo Chris McKay and Roy Lee. 'Adventure Time' creator Pendleton Ward will serve as writer, as well as a producer.

 

It's not yet confirmed if Jeremy Shada and John DiMaggio will return to voice their roles of Finn and Jake respectively, but it's hard to see that they won't. "Mathematical!"

RIP 'Star Trek' legend Leonard Nimoy

The inevitable consequence of getting older means loosing your heroes. Today we lost one of the biggest. Legendary actor, writer and director Leonard Nimoy, who for nearly five decades portrayed the popular character Spock from 'Star Trek', has passed away aged 83.

Nimoy portrayed the character in all three seasons of the original 'Star Trek' TV show, in eight feature films, the animated TV show and also as a guest appearance on 'The Next Generation', and directed 'Star Trek III: The Search for Spock' and 'Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home', (often referred to as "the one with the whales") the most accessible of all the original 'Star Trek' films. Younger audiences will recognise his voice from 'Transformers: Dark of the Moon' and the original 'Transformers' animated film.

 

Undoubtedly Hollywood royalty, Nimoy will be sorely missed.

'Ducktales' reboot coming to Disney XD channel

Children of the 80's will no doubt have some fond memories of the Disney animated series 'Ducktales' and its super catchy theme song by Jeff Pescetto (fun fact - he also served as sound designer on 'Tekken 5'), but with 100 episodes in syndication and the feature film 'DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp ' still popular today, Disney have decided to bring the series back for a new generation of kids.

Schwarzenegger will be back for 'Terminator 6'

The next installment in the 'Terminator' saga 'Genisys' is still a few months away, but Paramount Pictures is moving quickly to produce a new trilogy of films in the long running franchise before the rights revert to series creator James Cameron in 2018, where it will likely be retired forever.

TheArnoldFans asked star Arnold Schwarzenegger if he would return for the next film; the as yet untitled 'Terminator 6' to which replied "Yes, of course, next year". It isn't currently known if he will return for the seventh and final film, although I'd be willing to put money on it - even if he will be 70 years old by the time it comes around.

 

'Terminator: Genisys' hits screens worldwide on July 1st and for the first time in 3D, helmed by 'Thor: The Dark World' director Alan Taylor.

Professor Stephen Hawking congratulates 'Theory of Everything' star

Whilst it was no surprise that the Academy honoured 2014 drama 'Birdman' with the Best Picture Academy Award, it was a surprise that star Michael Keaton was overlooked, in favour of rising British star Eddie Redmayne's portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in 'The Theory of Everything'.

Whilst Hawking wasn't at the ceremony in person, he has sent his well wishes via his Facebook page, writing "Congratulations to Eddie Redmayne for winning an ‪#‎Oscar‬ for playing me in The Theory of Everything Movie. Well done Eddie, I'm very proud of you." High praise indeed from one of the smartest men on the planet.

 

'The Theory of Everything' is currently certified fresh by Rotten Tomatoes, with a 79% aggregate.

Teenage 'laser cat' meme creator passes away

Draven Rodriguez' parents have recently released some solemn news that their 17 year old son took his own life last Thursday.

He soared to internet stardom after his yearbook photo as a New York high school senior contained his cat, Mr. Bigglesworth, and an interesting background including lasers.

 

This image helped him make the big time through Facebook, with Rodriguez mentioning that his motivation was to create something out of the ordinary: "I don't want to go in the yearbook with the generic 'I-look-like-everyone-else' photo. I wanted a 'He looks great. Only he would try that' photo," he said. "When people look at it, they will know that was me."

 

Our deepest condolences go out to this young man, his family and friends during this tough time.

Fifth 'Alien' film greenlit by 20th Century Fox

Early last month, 'District 9' and 'Elysium' director Neil Blomkamp posted some interesting concept art for a potential fifth 'Alien' film to his Instagram account, along with the caption "Was working on this. Don't think I am anymore. Love it though. #alien #xenomorph" But whilst on the publicity trail for his latest picture 'Chappie', Director Neil Blomkamp has confirmed he has signed on to direct the film after all, tweeting out a piece of H.R. Giger artwork with the caption "Um... So I think it's officially my next film. #alien"

Whilst studio Twentieth Century Fox has not yet made an official announcement, Deadline Hollywood has revealed that Ridley Scott, who directed the first 'Alien' picture in 1979 will produce and assist with the script, which interestingly will be set after the forthcoming sequel to 'Prometheus'.

 

Blomkamp's 'Chappie', which is released next month, stars Sigourney Weaver who allegedly sparked his interest in the 'Alien' project, so its seems a safe bet that the next film will finally give her the character the closure that's been sorely needed since 1997's 'Alien: Resurrection'.

Final 'Hobbit' film comes to the small screen next month

The final entry in Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' trilogy 'The Battle of the Five Armies' might have disappointed a few fans mirrored in our own review, but that didn't stop the film from grossing nearly $1b at the worldwide box office and $3b for the entire series - an astonishing amount of money by any metric.
