So both Mike and I are the gamers of the crew and talk briefly about our thoughts on this years E3 expo. If you are like ‘Q’ you may not know what E3 is all about, so just to give you a little idea; it is all about what’s next from the video game world and what publishers are working on.  Mike and Square seem to agree that Halo 4 looks like a solid game that will bring old and new fans back to the franchise.  Also our thoughts on the lack of new hardware announcements and if it’s a good thing or not.

Iron Man 3 rumors

So production has begun on the newest installment of the Iron Man movie series. This version will bring back Robert Downy Jr, Gweneth Paltrow and Don Cheadle.  Rumors have been swirling around about the casting news and who will play who in the next film.  Mike and I are confident that Ben Kingsley will play the Mandarin and will fill the role nicely as the baddy.  Although the biggest bit of news recently is the bit about the “Iron Patriot” suit.  Fans went into a frenzy over this and we tell Q about why this is big news.

The crew has anticipated this film for a while and it has finally arrived!  Over the last year when the first hints of this film came down the pipe fans kept wondering why Ridley and his crew kept saying this wasn’t an Aliens universe movie.  It wasn’t until a few months ago that Ridley finally came clean and admitted this had something to do with the Alien’s franchise.  Myself, Mike and Q all come from different backgrounds going into this movie.  I in particular am a FanBoy of Sci-Fi films and dive way into the deep end of the mythology of stories like these. I love to know every nook and cranny of these fantastic universes.  Mike is a fan of the films in general and loves seeing a good sci-fi story.  Q can be a fan, but never has dived in as deep like I have.

We’ve been talking about the films great “viral” marketing campaign and since then it looks like they have taken the campaign in new directions (Take a look after the last credits to learn about a new website to go visit).  We talked about this a few shows back in which several videos appear of a young Peter Weyland played by Guy Pearce talking to a crowd at TED.  Another video is in regards to David.  Both videos can be found here (Ted Talk) and here (David Video).

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on Facebook or twitter via @entfortherest. You can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q), Mike (@CB_Robinson) and me SquareRoss (@SquareRoss).

Until next time stay safe and enjoy your entertainment!
