Doom Deliveries: ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’ Unlock The Genius Kit
  |  @   |  

A package recently arrived which contained within a wooden box with a message on top to UNLOCK THE GENIUS with the date 4-12-13. What could this be? Why, it must be a Doom Delivery!

Upon opening the box, I found a note inside from the good people at STARZ regarding their new show, Da Vinci’s Demons, which airs tonight at 10pm ET/PT. The eight-part original series is an historical fantasy which tells the untold tale of a young Leonardo da Vinci and reveals his “demons.” It turns out that the contents of the box are actually meant to help me tap into my inner genius! Woo! The kit contained a journal – so I can put my own ingenious thoughts to paper – and a Da Vinci’s Demons t-shirt that reads “ARROGANT, VISIONARY, BASTARD” on the front, with the back displaying the show’s logo.

You can check out a photo of the box and its contents here below, as well as watch a few teaser videos for the series.

New Leonardo Da Vinci Project Being Set Up At Universal

While it may sound a bit silly at first glance, something has this writer thinking that this sucker may ultimately be far more entertaining than it has any right to be.

Variety is reporting that Universal is hard at work on developing a film entitled Leonardo, based on a spec script penned by Jonny Kurzman. The film would follow a young Leonardo da Vinci, and his exploits.

‘Man of Steel’ Co-Writer David S. Goyer Conjures ‘Da Vinci’s Demons’

David S. Goyer, the prolific screenwriter behind some of the most successful comic book-based movies made in the past fifteen years (including Batman Begins, the Blade movies, and the upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel), is hoping his big-screen success finally translates to the small screen. After nurturing such short-lived television series as Flash Forward, Threshold, Blade (based on the three-film franchise he wrote, the third and final one he also directed), and FreakyLinks, Goyer is returning to the cathode realm with his latest creation, a new series entitled Da Vinci’s Demons. The show will be the first to be produced under a new multi-year agreement Starz Entertainment signed with BBC Worldwide Productions over the summer.

A Parody For Your Thoughts: The Many Faces Of ‘The Last Supper’
  |  @   |  

Recently we shared a couple of new images from ABC’s Lost that showed the cast replicating Leonardo da Vinci‘s famed “The Last Supper” painting. This along with shows like Battlestar Galactica (seen above) and House have made it quite apparent that this was a popular thing to do whilst promoting your show. As it turns out, this happens all the time, and Jeremy from Culture Popped was able to point us to a ton of them to check out.

Among the many variations you will find many popular TV shows and movies and brand name characters. Titles like The Simpsons, Star Wars, M.A.S.H., South Park, and The Sopranos appear along with Walt Disney characters and brand characters from McDonalds and everything in between, all showing off their very own “Last Supper” renditions. Some are very well-done and worth seeing while others are basic and passable.

Click on over to the other side to check out a few of our favorite “Last Supper” parodies, and be sure to head over to Culture Popped where you can see an insane amount of these images all in one convenient location.
