THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
Rhys Ifans tells Cinema Blend that he spends most of his screen-time as the human Curt Connors before becoming the Lizard. Once he finally changes into the classic Spidey villain, he had the most cutting edge costume technology. “I had a green suit on, and then this cardboard head, and these big claws,” says Ifans. “It was the most fucking insane… Each and every time you see the Lizard, the technology is so advanced now that when the Lizard’s eyes move, they’re my eyes. If I frown or show any emotion, they’re my emotions. That’s how spectacularly advanced technology is.”

Spinoff Online reports that the long-running spy manga series will be getting a American adaptation courtesy of Davis Film, who brought us “Silent Hill” and “Resident Evil.” It’s not that much of a reach. The character starred in a two fondly remembered games for the original Nintendo Entertainment System. “I have long admired Takao Saito’s great work as one of the top gekiga style artists,” says Davis Films co-owner Samuel Hadida. “We are looking forward to bringing his style sensibilities and this great character to worldwide film audiences.” Let’s also get the directors of “Crank” and “Ghost Rider: Spirits of Vengence” to direct. It could be fun.

Bad Astronomy maestro Phill Plait offers Blastr this bucket of ice water: blowing up a planet ain’t as easy as it looks in the movies. “[It] is essentially the same, physics-wise, as disassembling it piece by piece and flinging those bits away. And you know it takes really big rockets to lift even small amounts of material into space … so now multiply that by a million million million and you may start to get the idea that this might be a bit of a bigger project than you thought,” he writes. After doing some quick calculations, he offers the amount of energy required in the often hard to grasp measurement of joules. “Got a one-megaton nuclear bomb handy? You’ll need 57 quadrillion (5.7 x 1016) more if you want to blow up the planet,” he continues. So, basically, all those times we see planets explode in movies? As fanciful as a hobbit with a brass-button waistcoat. Meanwhile, if any of you in the great, wide Internet discover something awesome, disheartening, or just plain weird, let us know!
