Sunday Catch-Up – August 20

Let’s finish off the weekend with a look at the week that was and the things that are happening in the Geekery world.

Following the word of significant reshoots on JUSTICE LEAGUE, Warner Brothers has dropped all pretense of hiding the fact that Superman would play a part in the movie by releasing a new poster with the Man of Steel prominently featured.

The PS4-exclusive fighting game, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be released in the US on Jan. 30. The port of the 2015 arcade game will feature characters from past FINAL FANTASY games, including Onion Knight, Kefka, Cloud, Sephiroth, Zidane, Tidus and many others. The game will come in a standard edition for $60, a digital deluxe edition with a season pass for $85 and an Ultimate Collector’s Edition for $190. The Ultimate Collector’s Edition will be available from the Square Enix online store and includes an art book, a 15-song soundtrack and a Warrior of Light bust, among other things.

One of my favorite movies of the early part of this century, Super Troopers, is getting a sequel! Post-production on Super Troopers 2 was completed earlier this month, and the movie will be released on April 20, 2018. The film was crowdfunded back in 2015 and made $2 million in the first 24 hours.

Alamo Drafthouse and its partners are teaming up for a Pussycat party. The theater will celebrate a vinyl reissue of the 2001 Josie & the Pussycat movie soundtrack with a screening of the film with stars Rachel Leigh Cook and Gabriel Mann and singer Kay Hanley (lead singer of Letters to Cleo and the voice of Josie in the film) performing at the Ace Hotel in LA on Sept. 26. If you can’t make it to the show, you can read up on the recent JOSIE comic reboot.

At The Geekery This Week:

With the announcement of a second season of Netflix’s GLOW, I opined on why I wasn’t interested in the second season.

The release of a shirt based on the Prince Adam “What’s Going On” video made me say WTF?

Joe’s SONG OF THE WEEK features Julien Baker’s “Appointments.”

The latest edition of SUBWAY SHORTS looks at DC Comics’ Dark Nights: Metal 1.

Talk about all this and more in today’s open thread.
