Arcana Entertainment sent their holiday card our way to share with all of you.
For whatever reason, Major Spoilers gets a huge number of vistors from search engines looking for Peyo’s Smurf news.Â Well web surfers, here’s another morsel for you – the 3D Smurfs movie will be hitting theaters on December 17, 2010.Â It’s just in time for the holidays, and while I’m not sure the movie will be highly successful in the United States of America, in Europe is should come on like gangbusters.
Another bit of news that I found interesting is the film is now a CGI live action movie – so expect to see 3D Smurfs running all over live action sets.Â Who should play Gargamel? Personally, I’m going for Alan Rickman, although the rumors have John Worfin Lithgow in the film.
Knowing it would be a hot property, Boom! Studios released its first issue of Farscape just in time to fill the holiday stocking of long time fans.Â Even with two major holidays going on, the first issue by Rockne O’Bannon and Keith R.A. DeCandido sold out in just a week.
“We are tracking the unfilled re-orders carefully at the moment. But a second printing looks like it may just happen,” said Marketing and Sales Director Chip Mosher.
The series, picks up where the television mini-series The Peacekeeper Wars left off, so those who are looking to get their Farscape continuity fix on, Boom! looks to have the answer.Â And while we won’t find out until next month how many copies of this issue sold, any sellout title is reason for celebrating.
Man, I wish these had been ready for the holidays of this year.Â Instead, I’m going to have to wait until 2009 to send my Major Spoilers Minions to the toy stores looking for these awesome figures.Â Take the jump for the three packs, and the Justice League Unlimited Fan Collection figures.
On the next Major Spoilers Podcast, the panel will review Batman: The Long Halloween.Â Interestingly, Matthew will reference the original issues, Stephen the first softcover trade, and Rodrigo the Absolute edition.
