Dark Knight opening in theaters again

Posted by: |

Warner Bros. Pictures is bringing “The Dark Knight” back for a return engagement in theatres and IMAX on January 23, 2009, giving audiences one more chance to see the film on the big screen. The film will re-open nationwide, it was announced today by Dan Fellman, Warner Bros. Pictures President of Domestic Distribution.

Wow.  The only other time I’ve heard of a movie coming out onto theaters again, AFTER the DVD of it came out, was for the Lord of the Rings marathon.  I never got to see The Dark Knight in IMAX because every chance my friends and I got to go, it was sold out.  So, if you’re like me and don’t own a Blu-Ray player and a 1080p HDTV, here’s your chance to see it on a much BIGGER screen.

Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog DVD pre-sale on

Posted by: |

The musical supervillain Dr. Horrible and his web phenomenom that is his Sing-Along Blog will finally be released in all its glory, splendor, and complete AWESOMENESS on DVD on Dec. 19.  The DVD is only going to be sold EXCLUSIVELY on and is now accepting pre-orders here.  I also believe the 3 acts are available to download off of iTunes and able to be streamed in hulu.  But of course, the DVD is going to come with those extra DVD features, so I say it is a great buy!  Stocking stuffer anyone?

The cast includes the GREAT NPH (Neil Patrick Harris) as the dreaded love-sick villain, Dr. Horrible, Nathan Fillion (of the Serenity/Firefly series) as the impenetrable Captain Hammer, and Felicia Day (from The Guild sensation) as the lovable Penny.


The Muppets are BACK for Christmas

Posted by: |

Ahh memories of childhood. On Wednesday, December 17, NBC will air A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa. Get ready to share a cozy blanket and hot cocoa with your children or kid relatives for this show. This is one Christmas special you might not want to miss.

“Kermit rounds up his fearless friends to get to the North Pole before Santa makes his rounds on Christmas Eve and as usual, nothing — not even Miss Piggy’s planned trip to the tropics — can stand between the Muppets and a joyful Christmas. In typical Muppets fashion, chaos and humor ensue as they try to find a way to the North Pole, but will they make it in time?”
