Post Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Hero Movies to come...
My wife and I got an unexpected day to ourselves, so we went to an afternoon show (Sherlock Holmes). When the previews came on, we were struck by how many were what I would consider in the sweet spot for gamers. So I looked up what's coming out for the first part of this year...

Daybreakers
The Book of Eli
Legion
Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
The Wolfman
Season of the Witch
Clash of the Titans
How to Train Your Dragon (animated)
The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Iron Man 2
Prince of Persia
Robin Hood

In our show, the trailers were for Legion, Clash of the Titans, Wolfman, and The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Since Harry Potter and LotR, are we in a really high peak of SF/Fantasy media? Seems like it to me...

Another sort of super hero movie coming out is Kick-Ass. It's based of a comic as well and I'm really looking forward to it. I've got three of the trailers (Trailer 2 and a the two red band trailers) embeded in on a livejournal post of mine. Link below.

The trailers look sweet, and your Poison Elves icon brings back memories.
Were you ever a member of the Poison Elves Guild?

Guess not. But I was reading the comic back when it was called I, Lusipher. A local shop owner picked up some copies at a con and I bought them off of him and promptly asked for him to add it to my pull list. To bad Drew Hayes passed away, he wrote a pretty good story.
