Movie Trailer of the Week:

You are probably getting tired of super hero movie reboots. Man of Steel is bringing us, what I would call the second reboot, of the Superman franchise. Henry Cavill, a relative unknown, is taking on the lead role as Clark Kent/Superman. Russell Crowe is going to be playing superman’s father, Jor-el. Superman’s nemesis, General Zod, will be played by Michael Shannon. Super sexy redhead Amy Adams takes on Lois Lane, and Clark’s parents are rounded out by Hollywood veterans Diane Lane and Kevin Costner.
YouTube Video of the Week:
Zeitgeist 2012 – Year in Review
2012 may not yet be over, but Google has put together the data to show us what we wanted to know about this year. Whitney Houston was the top search term, Jeremy Lin the most popular athlete, The Hunger Games the top film and Hurricane Sandy the top event that we went looking for on the worlds most popular search engine over the last 11 and a half months.
News Article of the Week:
Well Dressed Monkey roams around Ikea parking lot.
It’s a real life story of Curious George. This past weekend, a small Monkey wearing a winter jacket and a diaper, was spotted wandering around the parking lot at a Toronto area Ikea store. Store staff were alerted and called in animal services, who were able to track down the poor little guys owners and reunite them.
App of the Week:
Waze – Community based navigation.
Synopsis: A cool social GPS driving and navigation app that connects you to other drivers.
Waze is a fun, community-based traffic & navigation app, 30 million strong. Join forces with other drivers nearby to outsmart traffic, save time & gas money, and improve everyone’s daily commute.
From what I have heard, and haven’t been able to confirm yet, is that you can also tag accidents and speed traps, which would be just plain awesome.
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
