Gaiman describes his take on the Cybermen: "I can tell you that there are Cybermen in it. It will be a stand-alone episode, I don't know if it will be number twelve or thirteen. It will be the series' penultimate episode. But it has a beginning, a middle and an end... Steven [Moffat] wrote to me and asked if I wanted to make the Cybermen scary again. I thought back to myself at the age of six or seven, The Moonbase, Tomb of the Cybermen… I saw them when they were first broadcast. The Cybermen were much scarier than the Daleks, because they didn't make any noise. The Daleks moved around all over the place shouting "Exterminate", etc. With the Cybermen, it's different. You turn around and bam! There they are. It's scary. I told him that I was going to take the Cybermen from the sixties […] and see what I could do. I don't know if it's going to work, we'll see."

An actor left a copy of the script in a cab and someone found it. They put it on Reddit and fans convinced them to give it back to BBC studios.

Iron Man 3
Bryan Haley does it again with their awesome low-budget (sweded) version of the Iron Man 3 trailer. I love the condo crash.

Transformers 4
"The movie is going to continue 4 years on from the attack on Chicago which was in the last movie. So it s going still to have the same lineage but going in a full, new, different direction and it actually feels really natural how it is going in that direction." - Michael Bay

Star Wars
 A geek designed and presented this R2-D2 engagement ring to his future wife. May the force be with them...always.

  1. All the ones after the first Planet and the TV series were marginal compared with the original, but I do like Rise. Franco was sleepwalking, but the rest is excellent. I think the next one will be more action oriented than the first.

  2. Not another Planet of the Apes. That franchise has been picked clean and there are absolutely no new stories to tell. Rise was all right at best. I enjoyed Caesar, but Franco and Pinto were yawns as per usual.
    Love that Iron Man el cheapo version. LOL

  3. I wonder if the Sweeded Iron Men could beat the Cybermen?

  4. I'll definitely have to see the next Apes installment. The first film really surprised me, as I've never been a fan.
    I'll have to check and see if I have Bill and Ted on DVD already or still just VHS. If I only knew what box those sat in...
