  • Universal has found writers for Jurassic Park 4, about five or so years after the project was originally announced, and they are the same writers who wrote Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Good news? Hands up who thinks that’s good news? Also, Steven Spielberg is not directing it, but he IS producing it. So, who knows. We can each only judge for ourselves. -Deadline
  • The people at Mothers Jones put together a selection of Game of Thrones attack ads. I think you’re going to like them! Probably! Who knows, I do not actually know you! -MotherJones
  • Famous Internet remix artist Pogo has famous Internet remixed another thing: Pulp Fiction! Ooooh! -SlashFilm
  • Apparently Mad Men inspired new McDonald’s uniforms in the UK? But only for the Olympics, or something? And they basically look just like any old McDonald’s uniforms? It’s a crazy world we live in, for sure. -AVClub
  • Did you know that the lead character in Brave’s hair is made up of 1,500 individually animated pieces of hair? My goodness. Thank God WE’RE not into animation, right? Unless you are? In which case, how do you even stand it? The Week has more crazy info on Pixar’s other incredibly detailed animation, IF YOU CAN EVEN STAND IT. -TheWeek
  • It looks like Today is trying to get rid of Ann Curry, one of the hosts of Today. Boooo! Poor Ann Curry! I don’t really feel any particular way about her, and it’s possible that she just wants to leave, but boooo! Long Live Ann Curry! -HyperVocal
  • I’m not sure if you’ve stayed up to date on the ongoing battle between CBS and ABC over ABC’s new show The Glass House, which CBS alleges is a ripoff of their show Big Brother, but shit just got REAL! With a COMICAL LETTER! -Dlisted
  • Inspired by the big dumb Abe Lincoln vampire movie, FilmDrunk has gathered up ten other presidential/monster movie mashups, all of which fortunately never saw the light of day. -FilmDrunk
