THE GOOD, THE BAD & NERDY FOR OCTOBER 13, 2017
DON’T EAT THE GAME! Coming soon.. the Stranger Things Eggo Waffle card game. It’s said to be an UNO-like experience – only with cards that are shaped like waffles. Players can choose to play as Will, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, Eleven, Hopper, or Barb and draw four Eggo cards with “a variety of suspenseful outcomes”. Cards can send a player’s character to the Upside Down, summon the Demogorgon, or “cause a rift that sends everyone who was Right Side Up to the Upside Down, and vice versa”. You’ll need to get rid of all your Eggo cards before the Demogorgon attacks.
This is NOT your typical superhero movie – and that’s a good thing! The New Mutants is an X-Men spinoff aiming to be the superhero genre’s first horror film. Yes, the victims will have abilities.. and they’re in the same world inhabited by Deadpool, Wolverine, etc. 20th Century Fox and Marvel release The New Mutants April 13, 2018.
Hollywood Reporter claims the script for Beetlejuice 2 is being rewritten. Warner Bros has not signed director Tim Burton or star Michael Keaton at this time.
