After taking Star Wars to yet another level of collectibles coolness, LEGO takes on yet another epic movie franchise: J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.

Having seen the astonishing Sauron's Barad-dûr made in LEGO parts earlier last year, one can imagine the anticipation behind LEGO's recent acquisition, the epic movie franchise based on J. R. R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.

First announced by Warner Bros. Consumer Products and The LEGO Group last month, the full line-up has been unveiled earlier today by LEGO.

The Woman in Black Preview - Undead Monday

Posted by Grey

On the strength of this incredible poster conjured by artist Daniel Danger, this Undead Monday, The Daily Zombies take a look at Daniel Radcliffe's first major post- Harry Potter film, The Woman in Black.

Based on Susan Hill's 1983 thriller novel of the same name, The Woman in Black is a throwback to the Hammer horror films of the olden days and perhaps more importantly to today's cinema-popping generation, the film will be featuring Daniel Radcliffe in his first major post- Harry Potter film. Directed by James Watkins and written by Jane Goldman, the film has won early acclaim with positive reviews ahead of its eventual release this Friday.

However, what really captured our attention on the film would be the special UK edition of the poster illustrated by artist Daniel Danger.

Immediately arresting with an enriched ambiance for some old-school horror, we take a more comprehensive sneak peek into the film. Hit the jump to check out the trailer for the film.



Here are a couple of featurettes from the film.







And here are the other posters that have been released thus far.





Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a widowed lawyer whose grief has put his career in jeopardy, is sent to a remote village to sort out the affairs of a recently deceased eccentric. But upon his arrival, it soon becomes clear that everyone in the town is keeping a deadly secret. Although the townspeople try to keep Kipps from learning their tragic history, he soon discovers that the house belonging to his client is haunted by the ghost of a woman who is determined to find someone and something she lost… and no one, not even the children, are safe from her vengeance.

Also starring Ciaran Hinds, Janet McTeer, Liz White, and Alisa Khazanova, The Woman in Black is scheduled to be released on February 3rd, 2012.

WWE Royal Rumble Preview

Posted by Grey

The Road to WrestleMania kicks off tonight with the 25th annual (not 25th anniversary) Royal Rumble at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

WWE kicked off its PPV year 2012 with the 25th edition of Royal Rumble, quite possibly the most interesting pay-per-view (PPV) of the year. Traditionally, one of the "Big Four" events of WWE (along with WrestleMania, Survivor Series and SummerSlam), there is without a shadow of a doubt that this is one PPV that any self-respecting pro-wrestling fans cannot afford to missed.

As per the annual tradition of Royal Rumble, the winner of the PPV's namesake match will move on to headline the subsequent WrestleMania to challenge for the WWE or World Heavyweight Championship, setting the tone for the Road to WrestleMania. But this year, the opportunity to kick-start the Road to WrestleMania gets even more harder than ever as an unprecedented forty Superstars will be involved in the Royal Rumble match, vying for the much-coveted price of performing in the main event of "The Greatest Stage Of Them All", WrestleMania.

While this month's coverage will be a snap preview, we can't help but felt compelled to complain about the disastrous promotional image featuring Santino Marella. Yes, this is undoubtedly the worst promo image for the annual Royal Rumble series, and we opine that it is almost a crime for the time-honored event.

Last month's third edition of TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs was suitably pleasant for most smark fans, especially with the image of CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, and Zack Ryder being the WWE Champion, World Heavyweight Champion, and United States Champion, respectively, on the foloowing night's RAW.

Tonight, John Cena returns to his regular PPV slot in a grudge match with Kane following the destruction of Cena's friend (and former United States champion, yes, things move fast in the WWE), Zack Ryder, at the hands of the Big Red Monster, who just wanted Cena to embrace the hate of WWE Universe. Meanwhile, Daniel Bryan is now just one step away from a full heel-turn, engaging in a Triple Threat Steel Cage match with two monster, The World's Strongest Man, Mark Henry and The Biggest Athlete in The World, Big Show. On the other hand, reigning WWE Champion CM Punk will be playing a high stake game with his WWE Championship on the line against Dolph Ziggler with John Laurinaitis, Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim General Manager of Raw, as the special guest referee. And then we have the highlight of the night, the Royal Rumble itself, reverted back to the 30-man line-up following last year's 40-man match.

For those keeping the score, we scored a ho-hum four out of the announced six-match card on TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Now on with our snap preview for the show.


30-Man Royal Rumble Match


Royal Rumble Match: Consisting of thirty men, beginning with two in the ring. At regular timed intervals, one of the remaining 38 wrestlers enters the ring, with the objective of eliminating all other opponents. When all others have been eliminated, the winner of the event will get an one-way-ticket to headline WrestleMania, being the number one contender to the title of his choosing.

This year's Royal Rumble match has in fact became even harder to predict than ever before. We used to concentrate on who will win the match. Now, we even have to predict who will actually be participating as WWE confirming that "any WWE superstar is eligible to enter".

While we maintain the same logic that only a handful of selected Superstars are actually eligible to headline the subsequent WrestleMania as we have mentioned last year, we were also the ones who posed the hypothetical question, "can you imagine Zack Ryder challenging for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXVII?" Yeah, the notion of that still seemed a stretch but the fact that Ryder has now became a start in his own right is a good indication of how things have advanced in a year.

Till now, only five participants have been confirmed. We now know that The Mix will be number 1, while R-Truth, Sheamus, Wade Barrett, and Mick Foley will also be in.

We are expecting a more-than-healthy number of return, from Christian to The Undertaker, but match-quality-wise, this is Royal Rumble, arguably the most intriguing gimmick match of all pro-wrestling.

Continuing our Royal Rumble tradition throughout the years, we will be picking five likely winners. In 2010's Royal Rumble, our fourth choice, Edge, was the winning ticket. Likewise, in a strange twist of fate, our fourth choice for last year's Royal Rumble, Alberto Del Rio, was also the winner. Hit the jump to check out our choice for this year.

Predicted Winners 1) : Randy Orton
Firstly, it's Orton's hometown. Secondly, the fact that Orton is perfectly cast as the returning killer fact back in the business. Third, a single match for the World Heavyweight Championship between Daniel Bryan and Orton is refreshing enough for all.

Predicted Winners 2) : Chris Jericho
The simple fact that Jericho declared that it will be the end of the world as we know it at the Royal Rumble is pretty much enough. And of course, the fight for the claim of being "The Best Wrestler in The World" between CM Punk and Jericho is a spectacle in itself.

Predicted Winners 3) : Sheamus
The fact that the Celtic Warrior has been on a roll for like forever without a clear direction might be indicative of a most prestigious road to WrestleMania for the former World Champion.

Predicted Winners 4) : Wade Barrett
The Barrett Barrage might just be leading to a Royal Rumble win all along.

Predicted Winners 5) : CM Punk
Just a crazy wild guess in the dark should the writers be in a push for a title unification match at this year's WrestleMania.


WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Dolph Ziggler (Special Guest Referee John Laurinaitis)

With John Laurinaitis, Executive Vice President of Talent Relations and Interim General Manager of Raw, playing the role of a special guest referee, the card is seemingly stacked against reigning WWE Champion CM Punk. That is, if you missed last week's Raw. As we all know, Monday's post-Royal Rumble Raw will also see the return of Triple H with the results of an ongoing evaluation of Johnny Ace's performance with his job on the line.

For everything else, prepare for the match of the night. Punk and Ziggler will not disappoint.

Predicted Winner: CM Punk
While the stars are seemingly aligned for Ziggler, we foresaw a healthy WWE Championship reign defined by longevity for Punk as he head down to WrestleMania to perhaps face the new-and-improved Y2J.


World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan vs. Big Show vs. Mark Henry (Triple Threat Steel Cage Match)

While we are still feeling perturbed by Bryan's seemingly and inevitably (if not already) heel-turn as well as Mark Henry's seemingly and inevitably (if not already) face-turn, we must add that things are in good order right here.

Of course, The World's Strongest Man, Mark Henry and The Biggest Athlete in The World, Big Show, are not the best opponents for the otherwise incredibly talented Daniel Bryan, who is just great in his offense and overall in-ring capabilities, but this cage match might just be the best scenario for Bryan to take advantage of the environment and the existing feud between the two behemoths.

Predicted Winner: Daniel Bryan
This might just be the perfect place for Bryan to announced his emergence to the world title scene in an escape from the cage amidst the two behemoths' clashes.


John Cena vs. Kane

With the Royal Rumble match, the WWE Championship, and the World Heavyweight Championship matches in places respectively, the true battle for the souls (if any) of the WWE Universe lies here. Will John Cena embrace the hate that Kane promotes, and just... for Christ sake, just shut up and turn heel for crying out loud?

Predicted Winner: John Cena
While the conventional mentality is for Cena to remain face (and a cool face at that) and defeat Kane in a straight match, we opine that Cena will still win, but not after a serious out-of-character violent burst on the Big Red Machine. Thereby completing the circle of embracing the hate. We longed to see you, heel-Cena.

The Rundown

It's the god-damn Royal Rumble. A sure-fire no-brainer for all pro-wrestling fans.

The Avengers: New Official Images & Promotional Images

Posted by Grey

Another day brings us another batches of promotional images from Joss Whedon's The Avengers, Marvel Studio's superhero all-star film.

With the May 4th release date for Marvel Studio's superhero all-star film, The Avengers, looming, the promotional engine for the much-anticipated film has been firing on all cylinders.

For the past two weeks, we have seen the movie tie-in action figures, the release of official images, the Avengers Quinjet concept art, and the new promotional illustrated art. Now, Marvel has released five new official images from the film giving us a closer look at Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, as well as the other members of the mighty cinematic Avengers.

Hit the jump to check out these cool images.





On the other hand, the latest issue of Empire Magazine featured a full-blown coverage on the film, complete with an interview with Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios himself, and a Marvel Zombies-pleasing four variant covers featuring Chris Hemsworth's Thor, Robert Downey, Jr.'s Tony Stark / Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson's Natasha Romanoff / Black Widow, and lastly, Chris Evans's Steve Rogers / Captain America.




Interestingly, Feige provided an intriguing comment on the much-talked-about mysterious army of Loki that was seen in the film's trailer:

"Who said they were aliens?… It’s not Skrulls, I’ve been clear about that. Beyond that, we want to hide it. The identity of the alien race is not impactful. It exists in the comic books, but we’re not setting up the Kree-Skrull war or anything like that."

Here’s the official synopsis for The Avengers:

Marvel Studios presents in association with Paramount Pictures “Marvel’s The Avengers”–the Super Hero team up of a lifetime, featuring iconic Marvel Super Heroes Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye and Black Widow. When an unexpected enemy emerges that threatens global safety and security, Nick Fury, Director of the international peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., finds himself in need of a team to pull the world back from the brink of disaster. Spanning the globe, a daring recruitment effort begins. Starring Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, and directed by Joss Whedon, “Marvel’s The Avengers” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963 and a comics institution ever since. Prepare yourself for an exciting event movie, packed with action and spectacular special effects, when “Marvel’s The Avengers” assemble in summer 2012. In “Marvel’s The Avengers,” superheroes team up to pull the world back from the brink of disaster when an unexpected enemy threatens global security.

Directed by Joss Whedon, The Avengers stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston and Cobie Smulders. The film is currently scheduled to be released in 3D on May 4th, 2012.

The Grey Preview

Posted by Grey

Live or die on this day. Or, you can check out director Joe Carnahan's survival thriller film, The Grey, set to be released tomorrow.

While director Joe Carnahan's survival thriller film, The Grey, is far from the first film that presented to the audience a "man vs. wild" cinematic experience, it is certainly not much of a stretch to suggest that it could just be one of the superior take on the relatively niche genre.

Reuniting Carnahan with his 2010 box office flop The A-Team co-star Liam Neeson, The Grey pits Neeson as John Ottway, the leader of a crew of oil rig roughnecks who survived a plane clash only to find themselves in the Alaskan tundra against a pack of wolves. Based on the short story "Ghost Walker" by Ian Mackenzie Jeffers, the film has garnered positive reviews and is set to be released on January 27th, 2012.

With no further ado, have a taste of the intense action and how badass Neeson can get in the recently-released red band trailer.



And here are a couple of the posters released thus far.


Here's the official synopsis for the film:

A group of oil-rig roughnecks are left stranded on the sub-arctic tundra after their plane experiences a complete mechanical failure and crashes into the remote Alaskan wilderness. The survivors, battling mortal injuries, biting cold and ravenous hunger, are relentlessly hunted and pursued by a vicious pack of rogue wolves.

WATCH Volkswagen's "The Bark Side” Trailer

Posted by Grey

Volkswagen strikes again by welcoming you to the Bark Side.

Arguably one of the best TV commercial for 2011, Volkswagen unexpectedly won the heart and mind of many with their advertisement during last year Super Bowl Sunday. Aptly entitled "The Force", the advertisement featured a heart-wrenchingly cute pint-size Darth Vader in a quest to "rediscover" the Force.

With last year's success in mind, Volkswagen has once again tapped into "The Force" with a new commercial primed for the riveted Super Bowl Sunday slots. And this time, Volkswagen welcomes all back to the Dark, I mean, Bark Side, with a canine-themed commercial.

The trailer for the commercial slated to air during the third quarter of the Super Bowl on February 5th has been released. As ridiculous as how a trailer for a commercial may sound, this clip is actually quite hilarious and we are pretty certain that figuring out all the canine versions of the classic Star Wars characters is going to be quite a fun ride in itself.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.

The Avengers: Movie Tie-in Action Figures

Posted by Grey

As we veer ever closer to the release of Marvel Studio's The Avengers, have a good look at the mighty cinematic Avengers with the unveiling of the action figures from the much-anticipated film.

Like almost every other major movies with potential appeal for the youth and toy-collecting crowds (for example, this one), Hasbro, the official toy-maker behind the movie tie-in action figures based on The Avengers, the much-anticipated superhero all-star epic film directed by Joss Whedon, gets to spoil the film silly with the unveiling of "Marvel Studio's The Avengers" action figures series.

Hit the jump to check out images of these figures.
