The Fangirly Diary of a Geek Girl: Done in 60 seconds


First look at Brad Pitt in World War Z. And here’s the teaser poster and the website. Now, it’s too early to tell, but that does not look at all like the book. *sigh* Brad Pitt, did you buy a franchise to make yourself an action hero?

Yay! David Tennant guest starring in Star Wars: The Clone Wars this Saturday! In “A Test Of Strength“, David voices Huyang, a droid who helps young jedis to build their first lightsabers. He got the part because The Clone Wars‘ supervising director, Dave Filoni, is a fan of David’s Tenth Doctor.

Benedict Cumberbatch sure ain’t resting. Now my Posh Alien Prince may join Gemma Arterton in the Monty Python project Absolutely Anything. It would be nice to watch him in a comedy again~


Total Film gives us their casting suggestions for Star Wars, and while some are WTF for me, some of them have me nodding… I also like they put my Ginger Princes there~ Check it out!

Hey, we have lots of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey TV spots, banners and a cute featurette that kinda made my hungry~

We also have new Rise of The Guardians character posters and a clip.

Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome is still delivering the goodies, and shows two minutes of a space battle to pump up the fans. Yep, it still looks bitching, even if the acting is not that great.

I also got two pictures of people with fantastic bodies. On one hand, there was Alexa Vega looking all grown-up and showing how nice Mother Nature was with her in Machete Kills. We also get Bobby Holland Hanton, known stunt double in Thor’s armor for Thor: The Dark World, which means, yay cosplaying details!

And we have a date for Spartacus’ season premiere (January 25th, 2013) and a trailer in all its bloody slow-mo glory! This will be the last season, and I am glad they are not milking and being as historically accurate as a TV series can be~

    I have ADD, so the moment the shot switches, I can’t remember what I was watching a second ago. xD Oh, wait. Maybe it’s because I have Dory’s fish memory.

    And I’m happy for Kenshin, and freaking Peruvian/Latin American distributors… you’re missing a hit here. But DON’T market it as an anime movie, just as an action film.

    And Alexa Vega has changed… quite a bit. I’ve seen her grown up before, she’s just been Machete-fied. xD I think.

    And… DUDE. Jurassic Park~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I’m game for it. Always game for Jurassic Park. xD

      @amy, LOL yeah, about Rurouni Kenshin, they shouldn’t market it as an anime movie, fans will already know it’s based on the anime, and they don’t want to alienate non-otaku fans~
      Damn, Jurassic Park. My face was all :D when I saw the trailer

  2. All I’m hoping for is that the new Star Wars movies have a sense of adventure.

    Now Alexa Vega makes me feel old. Although I can sort of tell it’s her from the face.

    I don’t think I’ve told you how awesome this weekly feature is, Mirella. It’s especially great to have a fandom update if work/family/sudden other flashy fandoms take my attention away. This week I’ve been totally distracted by Noirvember and becoming suddenly addicted to the modern Pride and Prejudice webseries “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries.” I kind of mainlined the later all Wednesday. With breaks. /random

      @Diandra Rodriguez, first of all, thanks! second, modern Pride and Prejudice webseries? I want!

      • @mirella, it all starts with episode 1 ( and it’s around 4 hours more of episodes until the latest. I can’t wait until the newest installment on Monday! There are a few spin-off things I sort of check on but I stop myself because I need to get other things done. I think the most brilliant thing they’ve done (besides knowing how to incorporate the presence of the web videos into later parts of the story) is how they made Lizzie’s best friend Charlotte into an active character. She gets kind of a raw deal in the book and other adaptations (especially Pride and Prejudice and Zombies).

    Okay, so my heart weeps I didn’t comment on this first as usual. Life has been handing me slices of failure pie for some time now, so I haven’t been keeping up with your fangirliness as I should.

    But, ohmygodsun! I think I can be slightly excited about this Oldboy remake. Practically all God’s kids know that Oldboy is one of my favourite films of all time. But Spike is also noe of my favourite directors. I should give it more faith than I have… though I guess that’s the true fangirl in me, but I’ve also seen too many remakes make a frace of the original, so I think I’m right in my need to be skeptical of the whole thing.

    Meanwhile… DREDD!!! And meanwhile… again… KENSHIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m soooo mad that I won’t be able to see this unless they release it on Netflix! To see this in a cinema would’ve made my LIFE! And probably would’ve been one of two films I saw this year… HaHa.

    Anyway, I’ve failed again in my aim to be more steadfast in my blogging-ness. Perhaps this is something I’ll start in December…? We’ll see. I won’t be able to come anywhere NEAR your fantstic fangirliness, but I’ll give it the old Harvard try ^-^
