The Geeky Weekly: February 7 – February 14February 14, 2016
Happy Valentine’s Day GCEr’s! Whether you’re spending it with someone you love or, hey – no judgment – something you love, we hope you have a truly lovely day. This weekend Deadpool finally graced our screens, and now the world will never be the same. Deadpool is also the highest grossing rated R movie, raking in about $135 million. Not too shabby for a guy in spandex. We also had Deadpool review himself, if you want to check that out.
Hey, did you know, Ghostbusters 2 predicted today would be the end of the world. Here on the East Coast, USA, we have a few more hours left. The Geeky Weekly sends its regards.
∴ Speaking of Ghostbusters, due to a teaser that dropped during the week, we know the trailer for the Ghostbusters reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Chris Hemsworth and directed by Paul Feig drops March 3. It sounds like the reboot will be using the original theme. The teaser had a teeny bit of footage, which you can check out below:
∴ Another reboot is on its way and we got the first sneak peek as well this week. Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup are made of sugar, spice and everything nice and will return to Cartoon Network later this year. The Powerpuff Girls, with an all-new voice acting cast, has no North American premiere date yet, but is set to show in April in Brazil. Here’s the first clip which proves the girls haven’t lost their Girl Power:
∴ The Internet collectively freaked out over the news of an eight Harry Potter book this week. Sure, it is the book adaptation of the Harry Potter play The Cursed Child, but there is still plenty of reason for excitement. New Harry Potter material. Written by queen mother J.K. Rowling herself. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child -the book – hits bookshelves on July 31. Reserve your copy or dust off your robes for a midnight release party like the days of yore. Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is two-part play that is set nineteen years after the events of Dealthy Hallows and opens the night before the book, on July 30, at the West End in London.
∴ Giddy up Bronies! Emily Blunt has been cast for the My Little Pony movie. Blunt joins Kristin Chenoweth and the Friendship is Magic series voice actors in new roles. The voice cast consists of Tara Strong, Ashleigh Ball, Andrea Libman, Tabitha St. Germain, and Cathy Weseluck. Blunt is also in the new Huntsman: Winter War movie, which the trailer was released this week as well. She plays the Ice Queen, the sister to Charlie Theron’s Evil Queen.
