Tom Hardy To Star In 3 More ‘Mad Max’ Films
So here’s some interesting news: Tom Hardy has announced that he’s committed to doing three more Mad Max movies after Fury Road, which comes to theaters next month. The trailers we’ve seen for Fury Road so far look absolutely stunning, and we’re cautiously optimistic about the prospect of having three more Mad Max films. On the one hand, we love Mad Max, and we love Tom Hardy, but on the other hand, is three more films bordering on too much of a good thing? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
‘The Muppet Show’ Returns?
So a project is currently in development that would closely resemble the old Muppet Show that was on TV back in the late 70s and early 80s. If you’ve never seen The Muppet Show, it’s pretty hilarious, and it spawned any number of classic bits still widely-known and referenced today. The show still has a way to go before being greenlit, but the success of the recent Muppets movies provides some hope that this is a project audiences will be eager to watch.

Why is Dad So Mad?
by Seth Kastle
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder affects people all over the world, but it can be difficult for friends and family of someone who has it to understand what that person is going through. This is especially true for children of adults with the disorder. That’s why Seth Kastle, a US Army veteran who suffers from PTSD, decided to write “Why Is Dad So Mad,” a children’s book that seeks to explain the disorder to children. Kastle, a father, wrote the book about his struggle with PTSD to help his daughter understand what he’s going through. You can learn more about the book or order a copy of it here.
People seemed to really like The Lego Movie (it grossed approximately $250 million US) when it premiered last year, which means that any and all children’s toys remotely similar to LEGOs that can be bought by studios and turned into movies will be bought and, you guessed it, turned into movies. This trend is kicking off with Play-Doh, evidently, which Deadline is reporting Paul Feig may direct. Feig’s involvement could spell good things, as fans of Bridesmaids and The Heat can attest, but a lot could happen between now and the film’s premiere. We will refrain from holding our breath in the mean time.

Here’s a short film
Whoa, this short film, called Burnt Grass, is really cool. Basically it’s about a couple who find a way to duplicate any organic matter. In the first scene, their dog stumbles into it and is instantly cloned. Then things begin to get dark. If you’ve ever thought about what life would be like if you could clone yourself, we highly recommend watching this eleven-minute film.
