Negromancer News Bits and Bites for January 1st to 3rd, 2015 - Update #6


From TheIntercept:  Meet the template for Zero Dark Thirty.

From SlashFilm:  Apparently, District 9's Neill Blomkamp was, at one point, working on an Alien film for Fox.


From YahooGames:  There is a teaser for the "Ant-Man" teaser trailer, which will debut during broadcast of "Agent Carter," Tuesday, January 3rd, 2015.

From TheVerge:  Five most important things learned from tiny "Ant-Man" teaser.

From YahooGames: A list of comic books planned for 2015 that excite the author.  Most of them don't interest me much, if at all.  New Love and Rockets: New Stories in March - that's exciting.


From YahooTV:  According to local TV reports, Donna Douglas, who played "Elly Mae Clampett" on the classic TV series, "The Beverly Hillbillies," died on New Year's Day, Thursday, January 1, 2015.  She was 81.

From HitFix:  He won an Emmy for his role on "The Practice."  He won a Tony Award.  He was the voice over narrator for countless History Channel and PBS productions.  But I (like many others) will remember Edward Herrmann as the vampire master, "Max," in 1987's beloved The Lost Boys.  I remember his character, "Graham Sherbourne," being clearly overwhelmed by the rustic, working class masculinity of Fred Ward's "Roone Dimmick" in 1988's Big Business.  Edward Herrmann was cool.

Of course, fans of the series, "Gilmore Girls," will always remember Herrmann.

Herrmann died at the age of 71 on Wednesday, December 31, 2014 after a battle with brain cancer.  Negromancer sends well wishes and condolences to Herrmann's family and friends.  R.I.P. Mr. Herrmann.
