Happy Rapture Day: Take Two! LaserLinks is where I compile a bunch of headlines, trailers, news bits, casting announcements, videos, and other fun geeky stuff from the past week into one convenient blog post.

The Avengers

I had to leave NYCC on Friday night, so I missed out on attending The Avengers panel. Luckily, this is the Internets and someone had a camera in the auditorium. Here’s the video of the entire panel!

Assassin’s Creed

Sony struck a deal with Ubisoft to bring this video game franchise to the big screen.

Akira

The big-budget American remake of this classic Japanese Anime film finally has the greenlight, with Tron Legacy star Garrett Hedlund attached to the lead.

The Punisher

The Marvel anti-hero is getting his own TV series.

The Dark Knight Rises

A six-minute prologue for the third Christopher Nolan Bat-film is rumored to be attached to Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, hitting theaters on December 16.

The Lone Ranger

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer talks about what was cut from the script in order to meet the budget set by Disney.

Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows

Here’s the latest trailer for this sequel:

Finally, just a little something to completely blow your mind. It’s an absolutely insane video for William Shatner’s rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
