Deal: ‘The King of Queens’ Complete Series DVD Box Set

Today’s Gold Box spotlight deal of the day over at Amazon today is The King of Queens – The Complete Series DVD box set for only $89.99 (that’s 61% off the list price of $232.95).

Note, this deal is only good for today until midnight PST or until supplies last before then, so grab this at a discounted price while you can.

This 27-disc DVD set contains all nine seasons of the CBS television sitcom which ran from 1998 to 2007 and starred comedian Kevin James as Doug Heffernan, a ‘big & tall’ man from Queens, NY, who works as an IPS delivery man (supposed to be like UPS). He lives with his pretty, but brash wife Carrie (Leah Remini) and her quirky elderly dad Arthur (Jerry Stiller – who played George Costanza’s father on Seinfeld). The series was a spin-off from CBS’s mega-hit comedy Everybody Loves Raymond and the cast of that show has made appearances on King of Queens. King of Queens also had a great supporting cast, being the launching pad for comedian Patton Oswalt, who played Doug’s lonely nerd of a friend.

Watch Jackie Chan Train Jaden Smith In ‘The Karate Kid’ Trailer … Or Don’t

The Karate Kid

It’s the week of Christmas and as was assumed, the movie news is slow as slow can be. But there has been no slowing down for movie trailers and clips, and today brings the first trailer for the feared and unnecessary remake of the 1984 Ralph Macchio nostalgia-fest, The Karate Kid.

The remake stars Jaden Smith (The Day After Tomorrow), son of Will Smith, in the Daniel-san role, and Jackie Chan in the Mr. Miyagi role made famous by the late, great Pat Morita. While the premise is indeed the same, in this movie, the characters will not be; Smith is playing Dre Parker and Chan is called Mr. Han. Smith’s character and his mother (Taraji P. Henson) move to the faraway lands of China where he obviously doesn’t fit in at all. After an interaction with a young lady sees him getting a beating from a martial arts inclined boy, Chan takes him under his wing to teach him how to defend himself, citing “the only way to stop them, is to face them.”

Continue on to watch the trailer for The Karate Kid.

Behold The Wrath Of Hit-Girl: Watch The ‘Kick-Ass’ Red Band Trailer NOW!

Kick-Ass Hit-Girl Poster

Ever since we first heard that Layer Cake and Stardust director Matthew Vaughn was raising $75 Million himself in order to make a movie based on Mark Millar‘s graphic novel Kick-Ass, our intrigue has been naturally high. Ever since we heard that one of the main reasons that Vaughn couldn’t get the studio backing for the movie was due to its ultra-violent content — most-notably due to the ultra-violence caused by an 11-year-old kid named Hit-Girl who dismembers with swords and ends lives with guns — we were all very, very much sold. C’mon peoples — we know these things are bad in the context of real life; that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the hell out of it in a fictional comic book movie!

Flash forward to present day: we’ve seen many images, we’ve seen an awesome trailer, and now, we finally get to see the RED BAND trailer courtesy of IGN. And of course we all know what this means: the trailer focuses solely on Hit-Girl and why there was oh-so-much controversy about this little girl to begin with.

This is the kind of trailer that will either sell or sever the interest of movie-goers. Kick-Ass is not meant for everyone, and if this offends you, then you’ll be wanting to avoid hitting the theater when this one storms in. Most who will see the movie are probably already planning on seeing it, but if not, this is the kind of awesomeness that can push thee over the edge.

Clickety-click on on over to check out the Red Band trailer yourself, but be warned, this is clearly NSFW material!

MP3 Deal: Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’

pink floyd dark side of the moonThe MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon today is the Pink Floyd classic Dark Side Of The Moon for only $1.99.

First of all, if you don’t already own this Pink Floyd album, you really need to, like now. Second, it’s $2, I can’t stress enough how crazy insane it would be to pass up grabbing it now if you won’t already own it (see previous sentence).

There’s a reason Dark Side of the Moon is one of the best-selling albums of all time: the 1973 release has 9 songs and you’d be hard-pressed to find one even mediocre song, let alone one that’s bad. In my opinion, this is the band’s best album (even topping The Wall, which I love too).

Just trust me on this one, people, snag this baby for a mere $2 and have a lifetime of enjoyment (or at least while MP3 format lasts). This deal might end at the end of today (though, there’s a chance it will continue through the weekend). Don’t miss out!

New ‘Toy Story 3’ Clip Looks Deeper Into The Choices That Need To Be Made

Toy Story 3

A brand new clip has shown up online for the exciting upcoming trilogy-making Toy Story 3, complete with an introduction from director Lee Unkrich.

In the first full trailer for the movie, we saw Andy, now 18-years-old and heading off to college (and still voiced by original actor John Morris), holding Woody (Tom Hanks) and Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) in his hands, deciding what to do with them and his other old toys. This was a favorite part of the trailer because we’ve all looked at old toys many years after we loved them so much and still felt that natural connection to them. In this clip, we get a lot more from this scene and how the movie is going to be set up when we finally see it on June 18, 2010.

This Toy Story 3 clip is set to air on ABC Family when they air The Incredibles on Christmas night at 8:30. Click on over to the other side to check it out right now!

The Not-So-Must-Watch Teaser Trailer For ‘Marmaduke’ Is Here

The Movie God   |  @   |

Marmaduke

Not too long ago, we discovered that the long-running comic strip Marmaduke was one of many old comics, toys, and other similar titles being turned into feature films. Apparently they were already hard at work on the film, as we now have a brand new teaser trailer for the flick to watch…if you so dare.

Fans of the comic strip and kids alike may find themselves enjoying a film like this much like with Alvin and the Chipmunks and their new sequel Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel. For me personally — and most of our readers, I assume — this isn’t going to be at the tippy-top of your movie viewing wish list for 2010. The teaser trailer is short and consists of a little voice over action from the giant dog we know as Marmaduke (Owen Wilson), as well as a transition from Phantom Planet’s “California” to 2Pac and Dr. Dre’s “California Love,” if you’re into that sorta madness.

Head on over to the other side to check out the trailer.

Video: Holiday Gingerbread TARDIS

2009-12-21-TARDISWhat better way to spend an afternoon indoors (beside watching Avatar) than to craft Doctor Who‘s time-traveling vehicle the TARDIS using a gingerbread house kit from the local Wal-Mart?

Geeks Don and Katie decided to do just that while live streaming the whole process on Ustream. Rather than using any form of tutorial, they eyeballed the blue policebox from a photo.

Check out the video here below to see how they did it and click the thumbnail here at right to see a larger, full picture of the TARDIS gingerbread house.

‘Avatar’ Earns $232 Mil (And Counting)
space
Tom Cheredar   |

2009-12-21-avatarNaysayers who said Avatar would be an utter flop were proven wrong on at least one front — the box office gross for the film’s opening weekend is an estimated $232.2 million.

That total is not even the full international release since the film has yet to be released in most of Asia. Director James Cameron has a very good track record for international box office openings, so don’t be surprised if the total grows significantly.

Now I’m not saying that just because Avatar will likely make its money back that it should be judged as a success. That will of course be a personal decision for everyone after they’ve seen it. It’s a decent indication, but not the only one.

With all the downtime provided by the holiday season, I’d expect strong box office numbers through the new year.
