Yes, I did use this picture because Simon Pegg’s wearing a kilt. Like a boss…
In a bold effort to monopolise the attentions of Chez Fluffrick on December 14th, IMAX have announced that screenings of “The Hobbit” on that day will be preceded by nine minutes of “Star Trek Into Darkness” prologue footage.
Just. Take. My. Money. Now.
This footage will be available in 500 IMAX 3D screens worldwide, and I’m hoping that my local Sheffield cinema will be amongst the lucky havens of nerdery receiving such an early Festivus gift – it’ll make up for my local IMAX not being one of the locations with projection capable of displaying “The Hobbit” in Peter Jackson’s much-discussed High Frame Rate presentation.

The Black-Coated Lord of Dreams vs Clanking No Marks. Score!
Whilst we wait with breath that’s positively baited for the Festivus episode of “Doctor Who“, which will feature new companion Jenna Louise Coleman and perhaps answer some unresolved questions, news reaches this blog of Neil Gaiman-based wonderment in the soon-come season 7B – as in, the Hugo-scoffing Brit Goth Lord has enlisted Cybermen in the weaving of his latest ep.
The cast for the ep – announced by the BBC here on the official “Who” site – also includes SF stalwart Warwick Davis, soap escapee Tamzin Outhwaite and Jason Watkins (previously seen in “Being Human”, apparently) and is set in space again, as Gaiman’s previous, genius episode “The Doctor’s Wife” was to quite fine effect.
Behold the wonder in Spring 2013, I’m guessing.
Give the gift of Carbonite Smuggler this Christmas...
Whether it’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or another holiday entirely, I hope that your celebration, whatever form it takes, is peaceful, happy and gives you time to reflect on the year gone and the year to come.
Thank you for reading this blog throughout 2012 – I’ll be flinging uniquely stunning and revelatory content at your eye channels throughout the rest of the holidays (at least some of which won’t be reviews of nineties action flicks and terrible metal bands new albums), so check back and see what’s going on.
