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
If you haven’t figured it out by now, those of us in the United States of America are going through some tough economic times.Â The recession has caused massive layoffs in the publishing industry (with many magazines, and newspapers shutting down) to the point where my long running claim that print is dead may finally happen.Â Â The bad times don’t just affect the print, automotive, and housing industries, however.Â Todd McFarlane wrote an official announcement of the layoffs at toy company in the Spawn message board.
For those of you in the United States of America, I hope your Labor Day weekend was a good one.Â We’re back from a big road trip, full of vim and vigor, and I’ve got a few friends who are trying to help out on the site today, but I think they are more in the way than anything else.Â More on them tomorrow on the Major Spoilers Podcast.Â And don’t forget we draw for that kick-ass Dark Knight Strikes Back statue on the show, I wonder who will win?
While browsing the Interwebs this morning I saw a post talking about the low box office performance of the Incredible Hulk.Â 2008 is certainly the year of comic book movies, and with the initial praise the film received, I had to check out the facts for myself.
