Have you been keeping up with the Wallace & Gromit production blog? If not, you may have missed the news that the intrepid hero with literal feet of clay and his adorably long-suffering dog are back in action. Nick Park and friends have been hard at work on a new Wallace & Gromit short titled A Matter of Loaf and Death, and have been posting updates and pictures on a regular basis. This time around, the heroes are up to their robotic elbows in their new bread-baking scheme. This is all cracking good news, so break out the Wensleydale!
Hell hath no fury like comic book fans scorned. A recent post at LatinoReview.com caused all manner of angry response and controversy. Seems Lionsgate Films were continuing their current trend of pissing off gorehounds by forcing the director of the upcoming Punisher reboot to deliver a PG-13 rated cut. This after the folks at Comic Con got a decidedly R-rated preview of the upcoming film. Rumors flew like tennis balls at a Williams sisters match: director Lexi Alexander had been fired, the movie was horrible, the movie was butchered by the MPAA, etc. The one thing that appears to be true is that the film exists. After two previous misfires, I question why people are hoping this movie will give them what they finally want. Is the third time the charm?
