• Matt Reeves spoke with Anne Thompson at Comic-Con about where he plans to take Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, which is only interesting to me because I recently saw Rise of the Planet of the Apes and it was horribly sad. So, I haven’t read this yet, but hopefully he says the he’ll take it in a direction that doesn’t just make you want to go to sleep & not talk about it. -Indiewire
  • “The Rise and Fall (and Rise) of Dan Harmon.” -THR
  • Here are some new photos and video from the upcoming Robocop remake. “Could Comic-Con week BE any more like Christmas?!” -Chandler Bing making fun of a nerd. -FilmDrunk
  • Oh, here’s more Comic-Con stuff. Do I need to explain to you what it is? Just go and look at it if you want to! -/Film
  • More rumored information about Leah Remini’s exit from Scientology, including the fact that her family left with her, and that she may have questioned Tom Cruise’s relationship with David Miscavige. -Dlisted
  • And to close, why David Lynch hates the song “It’s a Small World.” (Is it because he has heard it? Click 2 find out!) -AVClub

  1. AVClub’s “Hate Song” feature is my least favorite thing they do. It’s just so negative. We all have songs we don’t like, but let’s maybe be adults about it and just ignore them. Plus there was the one dude who was from a band I’ve never heard of (but I’m sure Pitchfork has) who hates Mika because of how happy his music is. Haha, what a little goth princess!

    • it was kinda funny when the chick from wye oak did one about how she hated that papa roach song and then they sent her flowers. and i liked the john vanderslice one because it was less about the song itself and more about a shitty experience working with the band. but yes, i agree.

    • The AV Club has sort of slowly succumbed to those kind of stereotypically snark blog features (N.B., Read This, Watch This, etc) ever since Phipps left. It’s basically just that and some occassionally good TV coverage though they go a little too apeshit, both pro and con, over Community & Girls for my taste, and that sucks because I used to really enjoy that site.
