Sir Ian McKellen And Patrick Stewart Visit Foyles Bookshop

Normally when Professor X and Magneto meet in New York City, it is to do battle. But this time, it's to share the stage -- again. Beginning yesterday, Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen (who also happen to be Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Gandalf the Grey/White) entered into rehearsals for their Broadway stage shows "Waiting for Godot" and "No Man's Land."

Actor John Noble has spent a good chunk of the past decade or so appearing in projects nerdy fans love. He was Denethor in the "Lord of the Rings" movies, Dr. Walter Bishop on "Fringe," even a Transformer. But he hadn't dipped into the world of superheroes until now.

In the new DC Animated Feature "Superman: Unbound," Noble takes on the role of Brainiac, the evil, alien-AI force that shrank the Kryptonian city of Kandor and put it in a bottle. Now that the movie is available on Blu-ray, DVD, on-demand, and as a digital download, I spent a few minutes on the phone with Noble to ask how he got involved in the movie, how he prepared to play such an evil character, and what science fiction means to him.

I thought that in commemoration of acclaimed fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien's birthday, it'd be fun to take a look at some of the Internet memes based on him and his creations. (Also, I communicate largely by Internet memes alone, though you've probably never heard of it.)

First let's look at memes based directly on Tolkien. The most popular in this category is:

Profiles in History's "Drama, Action, Romance: the Hollywood Auction" featured some pretty awesome items. Among them was the bow used by Legolas (Orlando Bloom) in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and an awesome X-Wing Fighter model used for filming the original "Star Wars" trilogy. Now, the auction has come to a close and Profiles in History has revealed the staggering 6-figure prices the geeky items pulled in.

Legolas was one of our favorite characters in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy – there's something about an elf with a bow we just can't get enough of. Now, fans have the opportunity to add the actual bow used by Orlando Bloom in the films to their Lord of the Rings shrine. That is, of course, if you have the money to pay for it. Read More...

New Zealand loves the fact that Peter Jackson has returned to make The Hobbit films and we can't blame them -- we'd be pretty excited too! First the New Zealand Post revealed a bunch of legal tender coins that celebrate the occasion, then a massive sculpture of Gollum was constructed in an airport. Now, Air New Zealand has created a Middle-Earth inspired pre-flight safety video. Check it out after the break! Read More...

WARNING: MINOR SPOILER

So who wins a fight: Smaug or Balerion? Frodo or Tyrion? Wargs or Dire Wolves? Fantasy fanatics have certainly debated which character would whoop which if a rift suddenly opened beyond The Wall and The Shire and George R.R. Martin's "Game of Thrones" universe met J.R.R. Tolkien's iconic "Lord of the Rings" in a Hobbit on Dothraki(not fair!) bloodbath!

Gollum is already a pretty creepy dude and seeing him as a larger-than-life 40 foot sculpture would just add to his freakish appearance, but that's exactly what Weta Workshop has created. Installed over three nights and unveiled yesterday in New Zealand's Wellington Airport, the sculpture depicts Gollum diving in a pond for fish just as he did in a scene from the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy.

The studios will do just about anything to promote their upcoming films and even though "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" is probably one of the few films everyone and the brother already knows about, that hasn't stopped Warner Bros. from from making sure it's constantly in our face, even while we eat. That's right, what you're seeing is the new Hobbit-themed menu at Denny's.

Back in August of last year we learned the New Zealand Mint was created a set of legal tender coins to commemorate the Star Wars franchise. Now they're at it again, but this time the New Zealand Post has collaborated with the makers of the upcoming film "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" to create a series of stamps and coins!
