Iron Maiden Turns Their Album Art Into Video Games In Their Latest Music Video

UPROXX

In a video that you’d think they would have attempted 10 years ago, Iron Maiden is taking their mascot through a surprisingly comprehensive tour of video game history, as interpreted through their album art.

Yes, if you were wondering what the cover of Run to the Hills looked like as a fighting game, or what Somewhere in Time looks like as a Commander Keen-esque shooter, well, you have your answer. There are, of course, plenty of other gags for metalheads hidden in the video, starting with the first shot, but those we won’t spoil; just keep an eye out when you watch it.

Colin Farrell To Play A Wizard In Harry Potter Spin-Off ‘Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them’

UPROXX

Warner and J.K. Rowling are expanding her 54-page Harry Potter spin-off book Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them into three movies *cha-ching* and now they’ve brought one very brooding wizard into the fold. Colin Farrell has signed to play Graves, a wizard the lead character Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) will meet in New York while trying to track down magical beasts to write a book about them. Seventy years later, Harry Potter reads the book about these adventures, which is how this figures into the Potterverse.

On the one hand, imagining Detective Ray Velcoro as a 1920s wizard in New York is making me giggle like a schoolgirl. On the other hand, imagining a magical Colin Farrell in a period piece set in New York is bringing back some uncomfortable Winter’s Tale memories.

Jimmy Fallon And Alan Rickman Huffed Helium On ‘The Tonight Show’

Ah, Alan Rickman ^^

UPROXX

Alan Rickman stopped by The Tonight Show to promote A Little Chaos, the first film he’s directed in almost two decades. During this segment, Jimmy Fallon and the noted MTV Movie Award Winner came together to suck helium out of balloons. Morgan Freeman got the honor during previous visits, so Rickman has some big shoes to fill.

With his voice was at a higher octave, Fallon took time to apologize for the Rickman off he had with Benedict Cumberbatch. Afterwards, Rickman talked about the time Sir Michael Gambon (aka Dumbledore) used a fart machine during a serious British play. It was a real mature segment.

LE RETOUR DE PIF GADGET – LE 24 JUIN

Pif Gadget renaît de ses cendres le temps d’un été. C’est le 24 juin que Pif, Hercule, Placid et Muzo, Corto Maltese, Rahan feront un retour « nostalgique » pour les grands enfants nés dans les années 70’…… Pour les plus jeunes, ce sera l’occasion de découvrir des personnages hauts en couleur et attachants.

Pour l’occasion, PifGadget réapparaît (toujours) en kiosque sous forme d’un Hors-Série de 192 pages.

Pas sur que Pif fasse l’unanimité mais ça sent bon la « nostalgie ».

Pour la petite histoire : 

Lancé en 1969 par les éditions Vaillant, Pif Gadget est un hebdomadaire qui en 1973 commence à périclité et termine son aventure en 1994. Un regain d’intérêt relancera le magazine (2004 à 2008) mais sans jamais trouver son lectorat.

R.I.P. ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Star And Heavy Metal Singer Sir Christopher Lee

Mr. Christopher Lee…….

UPROXX

christopher lee

Actor Christopher Lee, who I’m pretty sure is the only Commander of the Order of the British Empire to release a heavy metal Christmas album, passed away on Sunday at London’s Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. He was 93 years old. Best known for his roles in the Lord of the Rings film series, Star Wars prequels, and for playing Dracula multiple times, including 1973’s The Satanic Rites of Dracula, Lee had an impressively lengthy, cross-genre career.

Reluctant to think of himself as a star, the modest actor was also reticent about his Second World War record as a member of the Special Operations Executive. “I was attached to the SAS from time to time but we are forbidden – former, present, future – to discuss any specific operations. Let’s just say I was in Special Forces and leave it at that.”

He married his wife, Birgit, known as Gitte…

« And That’s How I Got To Be Rich »: George Lucas and Stephen Colbert on the New ‘Star Wars,’ Critics, and Those Special Editions

A propos de: Star Wars – Et George Lucas ne dit pas grand chose en fait….

Flavorwire

Okay, first things first: George Lucas has not yet seen the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer that we all lost our minds over this week. But, as with that brief tempest-in-a-teapot over not seeing the last one, it’s not a question of snubbing, but of trailer-viewing preference. « I just saw it on CBS, but I’m gonna try to look at it, » he told Stephen Colbert at a Tribeca Film Festival « Tribeca Talks » conversation Friday afternoon, explaining, « I want to see it on the big screen.”

« I’ve got it on my phone, » Colbert interjected, taking out his device helpfully.

Barack Obama Says He Doesn’t Send Texts

Bon, pas la peine d’essayer d’envoyer des textos à Barack Obama, le président n’utilise que les emails, (au cas où vous auriez son n°, bien sûr!)

TIME

If your most recent text to Barry O. could not be delivered, don’t take it personally.

The President doesn’t text. On an appearance with Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night, President Obama told the talk show host that he uses a Blackberry for email, but not for SMS. And iMessages? Forget about it.

« I don’t text, » said President Obama. « I email. »

« I still have a Blackberry, » he added to laughter when one person in the audience gave a ‘whoop.’ « The one old guy there, look at that. He’s my age. Somebody in my generation. »

Recorders in smartphones can be hacked and turned on to record conversations, even when the phone is off. So Obama doesn’t get an iPhone.

« I can’t use phones with recorders in them. The new-fangled stuff, for security reasons I don’t get, » said the President.
