Team Unicorn, a group of lovely ladies promoting the existence of Gamer/Geek girls in the world, have come together to create a parody video of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls.” This is just the start of what I would assume to be an ongoing collaboration of musical numbers, skits, and fun videos expressing the love of gamer/geek girls. The core group consists of Michele Boyd (The Guild), Clare Grant (Robot Chicken), Milynn Sarley, and Rileah Vanderbilt (Hatchet).
Their big hit debut, “G33k & G4m3r Girls” also known as the “Geek and Gamer Girls Song,” was directed by David Yarvo and premiered early September. Within a week, the music video gained over one million views on Break.com. With appearances by Seth Green (husband of Clare Grant), Stan Lee, and Battlestar Galactica’s Katee Sackhoff, full nerdery was in order. Check out the awesome video after the break!
Big news in the Marvel Universe has been released recently that sheds more light leading towards The Avengers. New directors, new castings, new cameos and more heroes? The Marvel Universe is putting the final touches to their epic superhero franchises that spark excitement in many fanboy’s pants. Many speculations and many clarifications have been made and you can read about them after the jump!
Marc Webb, the director of the Golden Globe nominated (500) Days of Summer has been confirmed to direct the new Sony produced Spider-Man Trilogy Reboot. How crazy. Last week or so it was rumored about and bubbling around the Interwebs, now its Webb’s dream come true. According to /Film and Vulture, this can be claimed official and production will most likely start to begin shortly for the first of the trilogies release date in 2012.
“The reboot allows Sony to clean house of all the high price-tag cast and crew from the original trilogy. Webb will be paid roughly $10 million for the first film, with reported substantial bonuses built in “if the picture reaches certain box-office milestones.” Sam Raimi was paid $10 million for the original Spider-Man film, but that was nearly ten years ago. The Evil Dead director’s agreement included a percentage of the film’s grosses (nearly 25 percent when combined with star Tobey Maguire on the last sequel).” – /Film
This should prove to be an interesting approach to a superhero film as this award winning music video director is faced with a big challenge of epic proportions. I’m sure he can reach the target audience of a younger generation, but will this be a good story or entertaining for fan boys or lovers of Raimi’s Spider-man. Only time will tell and I’m hoping for the best since (500) DOS was amazing.
