Lately, I've been creating a lot of posts regarding news; simply news. So instead of having a slew of random posts about news, I figured I'd compile them all together into what I call a Roundup. So here we go, the first Roundup.
The Walking Dead:
I really don't like horror. In fact, this may be the only post you'll ever see me create that has anything to do with the subject. However, I don't mind zombies nearly as much, and The Walking Dead seems like an extremely promising concept, one which I'm surprised has taken this long to be made for the little screen.
It always seems that in zombie movies, so much more could have been explored. I'd really like to see the survivors survive, instead of constantly running and then ultimately either finding a cure or dying. As a weekly series, The Walking Dead can certainly and most likely will dabble into this premise. So without further adieu, here's the trailer for The Walking Dead.
The Clone Wars: Season 3:
It has been revealed that Quinlan Vos, the fan favorite Star Wars prequels-comic-character, will be appearing in the upcoming season of The Clone Wars with the likes of fellow popular Expanded Universe subjects such as Delta Squad from Republic Commando and the Nightsister from The Courtship of Princess Leia. When and what episode he will be appearing in has yet to be unveiled.
It has also been revealed that the next series of online Clone Wars web comics will return to its roots from season 1 and concentrate less on a single story arc, and more on individual happenings of the war. Yay!
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides:
This may not be news to some, but the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie is slated for a 2011 release. The film follows the exploits of none other then Captain Jack Sparrow as he gets a blast from the past when he reacquaints himself with Black Beard's daughter, Angelica, played by Penelope Cruz.
Angelica forces Jack onto her father's ship, the Queen Anne's Revenge . The group, joined by none other then Captain Barbossa and Mr. Gibbs, embarks on a quest to locate the legendary Fountain of Youth.
Some of the best news is that both Orlando Bloom and Kierra Knightely will not be appearing in this sequel. Personally, I liked the characters at first, but by the end of the third movie, I was downright sick of them.
