    Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow - Avengers poster

    Each week we try to bring you a catch-up post on the latest in pop culture news. Because reading a whole bunch of individual posts just takes too much bloody time. And we want you to have a life. So enjoy.

    Speaking of having a life: it’s Black Friday. And if you’re going to snag some Black Friday deals (or anything at all, really) from Amazon, please do it through us. You can even use this link. When you do, we get kickbacks and those help to keep Need Coffee alive. Many thanks, amigos.

  • Marvel has released a series of Avengers teaser posters. That’s a snippet there with Scarlett as Black Widow. For the whole lot, featuring all the major characters, check out this link.
  • Arrested Development lives. It’s coming back in early 2013 thanks to Netflix. No idea where a rumored feature film is at this point. Dear Netflix: keep some money handy for when AMC gets stupid and decides Walking Dead is too expensive. Just a tip. Source: Variety.

    H2 Poster
  • Amazon‘s sale today is for all three seasons of Arrested Development for 74% off its list price of $109.94. That makes it $28.99. Not bad. That of course is for today and while supplies last. You can snag yours here.
  • H2 is the sequel to the remake of Halloween, with Rob Zombie on board to scribe and helm and then the film’s out next October. Filming starts in March. Zombie says, “Now, we’ll be hauling ass, and that’s the problem making a movie called ‘Halloween’: If you come out Nov. 1 or after, nobody cares. If it was called anything else, I’d be fine.” It is called something else, Rob, it’s called H2. Now you’ve got a film where everybody’s going to be asking where the O went. Source: Variety.
  • Cheech and Chong are getting an animated movie? Apparently so. It’s inspired by their classic comedy bits. “It’s great to be doing a movie where Cheech and I never have to get out of bed or be on camera,” says Chong. So are they just taking the existing bits and putting an animated version of Cheech and Chong speaking the bits? That being said, if Ralph Bakshi were to do a music video for “Earache My Eye” in rotoscoped style, admittedly, that would be awesome. Source: Hollywood Reporter.

    New Moon book cover art

    Because some sites want to make you slog through a 400 word article to get 50 words worth of info. To hell with that. Enjoy.

  • In a move that should surprise nobody, the sequel to Twilight, New Moon, has been given the go-ahead. This after the film did an estimated $70M this weekend. Quantum of Solace dropped 59%+ in its second weekend, but don’t cry for it, it’s already broken a half-billion when you add in the overseas. Of course, it opened overseas first, but I still think it’ll match if not beat (slightly) Casino Royale when all is said and done. Disney’s got to be a bit perturbed about Bolt opening with just $27M, since they haven’t had something open that small in…a while. Anyway, if you’re the author of a vampire novel aimed at teens, then you are sitting on a stack of gold at the moment. Congratulations.
  • Arrested Development is looking to become a feature film. Excellent. That plan worked so well for Firefly, after all. Source: Variety.
  • Aaron Eckhart is on board to play the platoon leader in the previously mentioned Battle: Los Angeles. Source: Hollywood Reporter.
