The three videos after the jump don’t really have anything to do with each other, except they all came out in the last couple of days, and giving them all separate posts felt lazy. So, let’s break down what you’re about to see:
-Nicolas Cage saying it’s unlikely he’ll return to the role of Ghost Rider, because of the perception that the last film was not a success, even though he insists that it indeed was because they made it on a shoestring. He also anticipates a reboot, which I would say is an inevitability simply because Sony would probably like to keep the character rather than let the rights lapse back to Marvel/Disney.
-Bill Plympton did a new Simpsons couch gag that riffs on film noir. It’s pretty cool. Also, the episode in question had jokes about marijuana and fisting.
-And there’s another Star Trek Into Darkness trailer, which has Kirk doing more crazy action stuff, including flying a new spaceship in a manner that suggests yes, JJ Abrams really would rather be writing for Han Solo than James T. Kirk.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
