 Star-Lord Chris Pratt Visited LA Children’s Hospital In Costume Yesterday, Because Of Course He Did (via The Mary Sue)
How awesome if Chris Pratt? Who's trying to make a theme park about The Hunger Games? What would Guardians of the Galaxy look like if it were made by Charles Shultz?

I'd love to hear what you think of the Internet's greatest moments in this week's "Geek Bits."

10. Evangeline Lilly Looking Very Wasp-like (via Bleeding Cool)

Actress Evangeline Lilly has been cast in the upcoming Ant-Man film as Hope Van Dyne, the daughter of Janet Van Dyne and Hank Pym. With the movie now filming in San Francisco, Lilly posted photos on Instagram of her new hair and of her with co-star Paul Rudd. The new haircut does lend itself to the idea that she will end up being the Wasp, who has mostly been portrayed with short hair. Whether that comes up in the initial movie that is already slated to have two shrinking characters (Ant-Man and Yellowjacket) or just set up for a sequel remains to be seen.

What do you think of her hairstyle?

9. Update: Lionsgate Still Trying To Make The Hunger Games Theme Park Happen - It's like "fetch," only with totalitarian government-sanctioned child murder. (via The Mary Sue)
Would you go to a Hunger Games theme park?

8. GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Gets a Fun PEANUTS Mashup (via GeekTyrant)


7. Get Your Own “Unnamed Sources” With the Star Wars: Episode VII Rumor Generator - Fear leads to speculation. Speculation leads to rumors. Rumors lead to trolling. (via Mary Sue)

What's your favorite "unnamed source" rumor?

6. Sneak Peek for DOOMED! The Untold Story of Roger Corman's THE FANTASTIC FOUR (via GeekTyrant)
A three and a half minute sneak peek has been released for the documentary DOOMED! The Untold Story of Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four. The film tells the story of producer Roger Corman's attempt to bring The Fantastic Four to the big screen in 1994. Over the years, the film has gained a cult following from a bootlegged version of the movie that leaked. 

Is the Fantastic Four movie documentary worth watching?

5. First Photo From Ant-Man Filming And New Cast Added (via Bleeding Cool)

4. Amblin TV Preps ‘Minority Report’ Series With ‘Godzilla’ Writer (via Deadline)

Would you watch a Minority Report series?

3. How Psychologists Use Superhero Therapy (via Bleeding Cool)
(via GeekTyrant)
Scientists are now discovering that using stories and fictional characters can help us in many ways. For example, using Greek Mythology, war Veterans were better able to retell their trauma stories, which is necessary for trauma recovery. In addition, recent studies show that stories like Harry Potter are helping readers reduce prejudice and practice acceptance of diversity. Psychologists and counselors are now starting to incorporate Superheroes and other fictional characters into therapy in order to help patients overcome struggles with depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and anxiety.

What Superhero would help you the most?

2. Documentary About the Fan-Made STAR WARS: DESPECIALIZED EDITION (via GeekTyrant)

A couple days ago a rumor hit the internet that Disney and Lucasfilm were working on releasing the original, unaltered Star Wars trilogy on Blu-ray. Who knows if that's really happening or not, but there's a huge Star Wars fan out there who isn't waiting around to see if it happens.

The fan goes by the name of Harmy, and he's currently in the process of developing his own version of the original trilogy. It's called Star Wars: Despecialized Edition, and he's making an attempt to take the original release that doesn't have all the new edits and special effects of the "Special Editions," and clean up the footage to make it better suited to high-resolution displays. He's also upgrading the sound! This documentary shows the multiple sources that he's using to make the film, and it's really quite spectacular to see the upgrades that he's made. As you'll see the stuff he's doing is incredibly noticeable. 
Is this cut worth watching?

1. Tom Hardy Dressed As Bane Accidentally Crashed A Wedding One Time (via EOnline)
Actor Tom Hardy photobombed a couple's wedding pictures in Pittsburgh back in 2011 while dressed as the masked villain Bane. At the time, he was filming scenes for The Dark Knight Rises, the third film in Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, near Carnegie Mellon University's Software Engineering Institute building.

A photographer, Jared Wickerham, snapped several pics of the actor, who is seen in his menacing costume while standing on the camoflauge-printed Batmobile Tumbler vehicle several feet away from the bride and groom and their wedding party, including a group of bridesmaids dressed in draping pale pink dresses.

Bummer, I didn't like the movie version of Minority Report, but I really like Edwards as a director.
Roger Cormen's Fantastic Four. That scares me.
And the Peanuts-Guardians mash-up is awesome.

DAVID WALSTON said...

I would have loved to be at that wedding.
“Crashing this wedding with no survivors!”

Pat Dilloway said...

As long as he didn't break the groom's back during the ceremony.

Tony Laplume said...

One thing's for sure, the Despecialized Edition is gonna be a lot brighter!

Maurice Mitchell said...

We'll see which breaks first: his spirit or his body.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Yes indeed!

Maurice Mitchell said...

I can't top that quote David. ROFL

Maurice Mitchell said...

We'll see if they can capture the magic Alex.

Fun links - loved the Peanuts mashup with Guardians

This makes the service diverse and the couple can proclaim their emotions without limitations. Now and then, it may be the way to go of one gathering to astonish the others with the customized articulations in the wake of saying the traditional ones. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/02/wedding-declaration.html
