Welcome to Silent Hill.

Movies based on video games have a history of, well, sucking. Silent Hill, however, was a step in the right direction for console-to-screen transitions. The effects were great and the monsters were frightening as fuck (nurses with testicle heads…). Now, the darkness is coming again, in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D.

Let’s do a reboot they said. It will be fun they said.

You should know, SHR is not a continuation of the first one. Sure, both the aforementioned testicle head nurses and (also) Sean Bean are back (playing a different character), but this is different from the first movie. This is based off of Silent Hill 3 the video game, which is the sequel to Silent Hill 1 the video game, not the movie. The movie is an adaptation of Silent Hill 1, which doesn’t follow the video game at all (as decent as it was).. This one seems to follow Silent Hill 3 quite well, though.

In Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Heather Mason (Adelaide Clemens) and her father (Sean Bean) have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. On the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by horrific nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her forever.

I for one, have been looking forward to this follow-up for a while. I mean come on, the King in the North’s face in three glorious dimensions?

Anyway, in anticipation of Silent Hill: Revelation, Open Road Films is giving away LIMITED EDITION (1) large and (2) small “Robbie the Rabbit” stuffed animals! Who doesn’t love a good scare from the infamous Robbie the rabbit?

Robbie the Rabbit is an anthropomorphic rabbit doll that has made appearances in many of the Silent Hill games. In some of his appearances, his mouth is covered with blood. For the most part, his appearance seems to serve little more than to provide an ambiguous level of unease to the player, due to the odd nature of his existence within the world of Silent Hill, his bright colors compared to the rust brown and dark red of everything else, and his recurring cameos. Most fans believe him to be sentient and believe that he is “watching” the player.

What exactly do I need to do to win? Simple!

1. You need to follow Nerd Bastards on Twitter (@NerdBastards)

2. Retweet the following message “RT @NerdBastards 4 Ur Chance to Win ‘Robbie the Rabbit’ stuffed animals. #WelcomeToSilentHill.

The contest is also open to fans who already follow us on Twitter (you just need to RT the message).  Multiple tweets are allowed (No limit, but don’t flood the feed. Play nice and keep it shiny.)

One lucky winner will be randomly chosen on Friday 10/26/2012 . The rabbits will be mailed out -free of charge via standard delivery and should be to the lucky lil bastard or bastardette within 1-2 weeks.

Got it? Now, what are you waiting for? Start spreading the Nerd Bastards gospel. DO IT NOW!

By the way, has it occurred to you that Firefly is 10 years old? How extremely depressing is that?

You get ready for the day one foot at a time, slipping your undergarments on and putting on your “super-suit” to get through the day. DC Comics is now giving everyone the opportunity to live out their nerdy fantasies under their every day attire, with the release of new DC superhero inspired panties, bras, bikinis and boxers. Spencer’s and Diesel are said to be the first store chains to distribute the DC undergarments, so you should see them at a store near you in the next month.

Comic book lovin’ ladies, if you can’t find the right bikini that’ll get you enough spring/summer sun, then take a gander at the following photos of DC bikinis set for Spencer’s which are: Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Woman. Now gents, we aren’t leaving you out! If you want some manly garments that’ll make the ladies swoon here is what Diesel has available for you.

If you’d like to see writer Veronique try on one of these DC outfits to see if it can handle a ‘Latina’ body, share with your friends or like 100 times.

With the release of The Avengers a little more than a month away, the hype machine is kicking into overdrive. Today we’ve got some freshly released behind the scenes pics, news on the premier, and a cool contest that you will want to get in on. Let’s dive in.

That’s the first of the new pics from the set of The Avengers. Man does Joss Whedon wear that shirt a lot — still, the shield certainly draws the eye away from that. Mostly these pics show Whedon in “action” dynamically directing, which means he is talking to the actors — now you know why there are no director trading cards. The rest of the pics will be sprinkled throughout the rest of this story. (more…)

There’s only 23 days left until the release of the Lionsgate feature film The Hunger Games. So, it’s a perfect time to get a contest going, right? Sponsored by the studio itself, fans in 24 different cities can enter to win an early screening of the film. This contest will be based on the number of tweets relating to a hashtag specific to their city. The top four cities will then get advanced screening of the film. Interested?

Simply head on over to  screenings.thehungergamesmovie.com to discover if your city, or the closest one to it, is eligible and what your unique hash tag will be. Click the jump for the look at the map and a special something extra.

San Diego Comic-con is less then two months away and it’s no surprise that the web swinging wall crawler is making his way to the convention floor. San Diego is going to be the forefront of pop culture with the latest in film, comic books and television but now Columbia Pictures has made it official that The Amazing Spider-man will be there. That’s right, everyone from director Marc Webb to stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, and Rhys Ifans will all be on hand for press and maybe even a possible panel about the upcoming film. That’s pretty sweet but the studio has sweetened the deal for this year’s Comic-con.

Is it cake?

Avatar Cake

Over the past weekend, at The Crockett Center, in Austin, TX, hundreds of people came together for the “2010 Cake Odyssey: That Takes The Cake” competition. It is a cake decorating/sculpting contest for both children and adults, beginners and experts. There were may different categories such as wedding tiered, butter cream only, sculpted, etc. The one category that caught my eye was a special showcake competition,  “2010 Cake Odyssey” (Sci-Fi and Fantasy Category). Here I discovered an Avatar, young Na’vi cake. I couldn’t find any information on it but I thought you guys would like to check it out regardless. And I also included some pics of other cakes that were showcased as well. Check ’em out and let me know what you think.
