Best of the Week – 1913

Here we go with this weeks edition of Best of the Week.

Movie Trailer of the Week: 

Star Trek Into Darkness – In theatres May 17th, 2013

Synopsis: After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

KHAN, this week
Wrong Khan, but what the heck… it’s Kirk

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lens flare Ho! Yup, were getting ready for J.J. Abrams continuation of the Star Trek franchise he helped reboot in 2009. The complete story can probably be pasted together from all the trailers that have been released, with the exception of the ending… but we can assume Kirk and crew win. All the same actors are back from the first film to reprise their roles and are joined by the gorgeous Alice Eve as Dr. Carol Marcus and Sherlock… errr, I mean Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan Noonien Singh.

Zachary Quinto vs. Leonard Nimoy: The Challange

Props to Audi for this one, pitting Spock vs. Spock in this fun loving commercial for the brand new S7. Not only does it show off some of the features of the car, it is a decent little promo for Star Trek.

Bacon!  Yes, it’s as if I’ve been right all along.  This granny is on to something, and even garnered attention from Oscar Mayer, who gave her a ride in the famous wienermobile and some packages of free bacon.

As always, I’m still open to suggestions for other categories, and for nominations to get included on the list. You can let me know at: oftheweekATleighcDOTcom

Just what you have always wanted to smell like… Fresh Pizza! Not so log ago, it was just a joke posted on Pizza Hut Canada’s Facebook page. Production is only a limited run, so much so, that there are only 100 bottles, and they are all being given away to some of the first fans to like and comment on the post from Facebook. Rumour has it that Pizza Hut may go forward with another run to sell at retail stores.

Game of the Week:

War Thunder – Gaijin
I love flying games and flight simulators, and I enjoy the challenge of going head to head against other arm-chair pilots. War Thunder, although it is still in beta, has an impressive choice of aircraft spanning multiple decades and amazing graphics. Although I have been distracted by the recently made free Battlefield 1942 and the fresh release of Planetside 2, I will find time to squeeze in some flying. Take note, it looks like they will be using a ‘freemium’ model, meaning the game is free to play, but you can spend money to buy premium upgrades.
