The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Nerdpocalypse!

Greetings, my fellow geeks! This week we had three important geeky news! There was the premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and important DC and Marvel (Fox) news! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, here’s how the week started:

SATURDAY

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire got $500 million worldwide on the box office! Just to shut up those who said movies with female protagonist can make this kind of bank~

Here’s a couple of first looks at some characters in live-action anime adaptations~ We have Ryunosuke Kamiki as Sōjirō Seta in the Rurouni Kenshin sequel, and Shun Oguri as Arsène Lupin III in the Lupin III movie.

Christopher Nolan’s Interestellar trailer will debut with The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Well, with this and the confirmation last month that we’ll also get The Amazing Spider-Man 2 trailer, as well as the rumor for the Godzilla trailer, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be a must-see for even more reasons!

Here’s the preview of Young Avengers #13, where we are promised drama, action and kissing!

Happy Birthday to the human corgi, Dean O’Gorman!

In related news, Air New Zealand has a Boeing 777-300 plane that has a 54m-long Smaug emblazoned on both sides. Because that’s how RL Middle-Earth rolls~ There’s info, pics and even video here, here and here.

Benedict Cumberbatch says he ain’t always the genius anti-hero:

Everyone wants those dark, complicated anti-heroes and, of course, I play them. But I also play Charles in August: Osage County, an everyman; he’s not super-sleuthing or cracking code or breaking algorithms. I play Ford in 12 Years A Slave and Alexander in Stuart: A Life Backwards – he’s a pretty open book; smart man though he is, the complexity is all about Stuart. I mix it up.

He forgot to mention the lovable ball of awkward that is Martin Crieff in radio sitcom Cabin Pressure~

Tom Hiddleston talks about his personal picks from different kinds of movies, and I think we have similar enough tastes so yay! But how about the movies he’s looking forward to watch?

There are many I’m looking forward to: Gravity, 12 Years A Slave, All Is Lost, Blue Is The Warmest Colour. Or it might be Gladiator again (which I have watched many, many times). Coriolanus has turned all my thoughts to ancient Rome.

I know the feeling bro! Of those, I have only seen Gravity yet! Well, that and Gladiator. Obviously.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire might have stole Thor: The Dark World‘s thunder, but the Marvel hero is getting awfully close to $600 million worldwide, so yay! I just want a third Thor movie, ok?

Talking about box office, Frozen has become Disneys’ biggest animated opening, easily winning over Wreck-it-Ralph and Tangled (we don’t talk about Planes… ever)! Also, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider has a cameo in Frozen. Animators are sneaky like that.
