GameStop, Inc.

Bruce Lee UFCWelcome to the first edition of The Weekend Grab Bag! E3 seems to be THE news of the week, with more views than anything else, but this week has been chock full of news, trailers, interviews, and columns. We’re heading into summer movie season, con season is well underway, and the latest event comics are coming at us at full speed, so the news will be flying around like crazy for the next few months. But how do you keep up with so much going on?

Sean’s new column THAT’S NOT ROTTEN! caused a bit of a stir, showing that Rotten Tomatoes’ reviled film The Counselor is not actually a bad film. There was a fantastic new trailer for the highly anticipated film Birdman! starring Michael Keaton in a role he knows all too well. And This Week In Crowdfunding brought us a campaign for some awesome toys we didn’t even know we wanted.
