Daily Grind: The News We Missed – April 11

The Daily Grind: The News We Missed

Of course we miss a lot of news on Friday, we are too busy writing movie reviews and drinking games. Well, at least Mr. Kevin Carr is too busy devising ways to get you drunk while you take in a weekend’s worth of films. Either way, we know that there is some news that we missed in the last 24 hours, so we would like to share it with you today, via our friends around the web-o-sphere…

Sony Picks up Battle: Los Angeles [FirstShowing.net]
At first glance, I wanted this to be “Bloods v. Cripps: The Revival”, but alas it is the story of a Marine platoon that must fight off an alien invasion in L.A. This one gets a half-yawn and a half-raised eyebrow of intrigue.

Meg is a movie about a HUGE Shark [LA Times]
Rumors come back to life, much like a huge-ass shark that eats people. Think Jaws meets… umm, Godzilla.

James Cameron talks Avatar, 3-D, Science and the Future of Humanity [Variety]
We really wanted to do a full article about this one, but we got confused about 1/2 way through — Jim Cameron is out there, man. Really out there. Avatar looks sweet, though.

Indiana Jones in MAD Magazine [Slashfilm]
Pete at Slashfilm, purveyor of all things cool, hands us this little gem. We wish we had time to hunt down cool stuff like this and write about it, but we prefer to just read Slashfilm instead.

Gisele Bündchen could be the 4th Austin Powers Girl [The Boston Globe]
Really? This is being reported as if it is significant, like a Bond girl or something. Oh, okay.. We get the pun. Not funny.

Colin Chou is not a Ninja Assassin [Collider]
He does, however, know kung fu.

More Speed Racer Photos, Images, Cartoonyism [Collider]
Read the title, friendo. More Emile Hirsch to satisfy your weird fantasies.

Alright kids, that’s what we have for you today. Check out the stories above on all of our little-sister sites. And be sure to have a damn fine weekend. Back to the grind on Monday.
