It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Anyway, Merry Christmas to all the Lowdown readers out there. If you don’t celebrate Christmas, enjoy the holidays! Let’s kick off this edition of the Entertainment Link-Off with Noomi Rapace. She’s having a solid week. Sherlock Holmes sequel is currently in theatres and also the highly anticipated trailer for another one of her upcoming films Prometheus was released this week as well.
After the jump, Oh Christmas Troy, trailers for Prometheus, The Dark Knight Rises, John Carter and The Hobbit, buddy song for Optimus Prime and the iPhone4S can be very dangerous.
NBC being the Grinch from Christmas has decided to leave Community out of its early 2012 lineup, so Community fans hit up Rockefeller Center to do their own rendition of “Oh Christmas Troy”. (TV Guide)
After a few teasers over the past few days, the trailer for Prometheus is finally up. It’s exactly the same as the leaked version earlier but at least you’ll be able to see everything clearly now. For a non-Alien prequel, gotta say there’s definitely a few nods to the 1979 sci-fi horror flick in this teaser. (Apple)
Turns out IMAX isn’t differentiating between the usual 70 mm from digital IMAX. So for that extra $5 you’re spending for the ticket, you might not be getting what you’re paying for! IMAX digital isn’t all bad, but it’s not exactly the same as the good ol’ stuff. Anyway, nice article on helping you differentiate the two. (Slashfilm)
In the latest edition of Drunk History, it’s a drunk narration of a Christmas classic ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. To help with the story telling Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Jim Carrey decided to play along this time around. (Funny or Die)
Happy Hanukkah! Allow Conan O’Brien to present to you the human centipede menorah. (Nerd Bastards)
I’ve seen worse product placement in TV shows. This writer broke up with Being Erica for all the wrong reasons. (National Post)
Speaking of product placements, NBC outranks all other networks out there when it comes to shamelessly plugging things in their shows. (Entertainment Weekly)
Arrested Development in Lego form! (Flavor Wire)
MTV no more? Vevo wants to make the move to television! (NY Times)
Awwww moment of the week. A quasi-reunion photo of the cast of Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. (Entertainment Weekly)
Poor Kris Humphries. The dude just can’t catch a break. Clearly New York fans are on Team Kardashian since he was booed during the game against the Knicks recently. He currently ranks as the most disliked NBA player… heck, he outranked LeBron “I’m taking my talents to South Beach” James. (Forbes)
Japanese trailer for John Carter shows a bit more on how the title character made it all the way to mars. (Coming Soon)
More on John Carter. Some nifty concept art to check out! (Slashfilm)
Disney announced that The Avengers would be released in 3D. Meanwhile, Joss Whedon is reassuring fans that the 3D in the film will not be ‘obnoxiously 3D’. (JoBlo)

The wait is over! The trailer for The Hobbit is now out! Wait, I spoke too soon, the actual film is still a year away. (Apple)

You, Me and Optimus Prime.
A Christmas gift for Megatron.
Warning iPhone4S users, Siri might come in handy as your personal assistant but what if Siri goes nuts like the usual bots from movies? Oh it’s a slippery slope when it comes to technology. Have a look at Sir: The Holiday Horror Movie trailer. I don’ think “there’s an app for that” has ever sounded so menacing.
Now that you saw the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises in HD, time to see the sweded version? Gotta love the paper/cardboard football field.
