Episode 77 – Vanishing into the Ether

On this episode of Nerd & Tie (after we finish talking about Pokemon Go and get to the actual content) we talk about Star Trek‘s Abramsverse getting renamed the “Kelvin Timeine,” John Cho’s version of Hikaru Sulu being confirmed as gay (and all the fall out associated with it), Pacific Rim 2 finally getting a release date, Netflix greenlighting a remake of Lost in Space, how the Tetris movie will be the first in a trilogy, and how Sukoshi Con has cancelled all of their future conventions.

That’s right, Sukoshi Con is done forever.

Also, go Team Valor.

It Gets Worse: They’re Making a TRILOGY of ‘Tetris’ Movies

Everything is terrible and no one is coming to save us. Everything is terrible and no one is coming to save us. Everything is terrible and no one is coming to save us.

The people behind the ongoing attempt to destroy the world create a Tetris movie don’t want to make just one, but in fact they want to make a trilogy. Larry Kasanoff, who is the main person behind the adaptation, literally said, “…the story we conceived is so big. This isn’t us splitting the last one of our eight movies in two to wring blood out of the stone. It’s just a big story.”

Everything is terrible and no one is coming to save us. Everything is terrible and no one is coming to save us. Everything is terrible and no one is coming to save us.

Reminder: They’re Still Making a ‘Tetris’ Movie

I don’t want to be writing this article, because it’s part of the ongoing evidence that we don’t actually live in the real world. Instead it leads me to believe we live in the absurdist caricature of reality imagined by a satirist in some far better world. On the other hand, if that’s true, it does at least mean there’s somewhere better out there at least. I’d like to go to that other world.

You see, because in this one, as we reported over a year ago, they’re working on a friggin’ Tetris movie.

Details were pretty scarce before, but now actual details of this nightmare are emerging. Deadline is reporting that the film will be a $80 million China-U.S. co-production, with Threshold Global Studios and Seven Star Works at the helm.

The Sci-fi thriller (so… about half the parody trailers were right) will be shot in 2017, at least partially in China. They apparently want to turn this thing into a trilogy too, so wrap your head around that for a minute.

This is terrible. Everything is terrible.

Episode 31 – Nightmare of Happiness

On this episode of Nerd & Tie we examine the terrible idea of Tetris the Movie, Clerks 3 gets funding, Joaquin Phoenix ISN’T going to be Doctor Strange, DC’s Carnival of Sadness now covers T-Shirts, Shatner will be in the 3rd Abramsverse Trek film, and a registered sex offender has been working Minneapolis conventions.

There’s no joke about that last item.

It’s Not a Joke, the Tetris Movie is Coming

In news that hurts my brain, the BBC is reporting that a film adaptation of the video game “Tetris” is in the works.

Let’s just let that sink in for a minute.

They want to make what is being described as a science fiction epic based on a video game that is literally just about falling blocks. Even the board game “Battleship” made more sense to adapt into a film than this. This is like making “Checkers: The Movie.” If your ears are bleeding now, we apologize.

This is an idea so ludicrous it’s been repeatedly been done as a joke time and time again. Want to make a fake video-game movie trailer? Tetris! Because the concept itself makes no sense.

And with that I leave you with my two favorite fake-trailers for what is now going to be a real movie. And then I’m going to cry a lot.
