Here are the geeky/nerdy links that piqued my interest this week:
Monday’s animated Google Doodle in honor of the 107th Anniversary of Winsor McCay’s
Little Nemo in Slumberland is easily my favorite one they’ve done. ( Techland) It looks like Edgar Wright’s
Ant Man finally got a release date albeit a long time from now. ( Splash Page) The video from Felix Baumgartner’s 24-Mile free-fall space jump is ridiculous. (
Time) Could there be an animated
Firefly series? ( The AV Club) The first trailer for the
Carrie remake starring Chloë Grace Moretz which is great casting. ( io9) I’m surprised it took this long for someone to mash-up
Dexter and Dexter’s Laboratory but it was worth the wait. ( Nerd Approved) I’m excited that Clark Gregg is returning (somehow) as Agent Coulson for Marvel’s
S.H.I.E.L.D. show! ( Splash Page) Trailer for series four of
Misfits. It’s like a completely different cast now. I hope I still like it. ( E4) The best animated show on television,
Bob’s Burgers, got renewed for season four! ( Deadline Hollywood) Back Pages discusses the first collection of Neil Gaiman’s
The Sandman ( The AV Club) For a person who eats as fast as I do, a strip that can heal mouth burns might be a godsend. (
Geekologie) Disney/Marvel released an official synopsis for
Iron Man 3 ( Splash Page) Warner Bros plans to start shooting the
Justice League film in summer of 2015. That gives them plenty of time to find a cast, director, script, etc. ( Blending Cool)

I’m always so amzed by how these stop-motion animations movies are made to the point that I’m distracted for the first 15-30 minutes in a “Wow” trance.
Having read and been a hug fan of the book, I’m glad they were able to keep a lot of the creepiness of the book but not so much so that it wouldn’t be watchable by a child (although the adult I went with jumped a couple of times).
This is definatelty my favorite adapation of a Neil Gaiman book.
Maybe Henry Selick can do
Definitely watch it in 3D if you can because it looks beautiful (although I think this is the last week for 3D with that Jonas Brothers concert movie coming out. Why does THAT need to be in 3D?)
I loved the
book written by Neil Gaiman so, naturally, I can’t wait for this.
