Entertainment Link-Off: Back to December

No wide releases at the box office this weekend so it’ll be the same old battle between sparkling vampires and Muppets for the top spot. Anyway, just gonna kick off the latest ELO with Korean pop star (and also fellow Canadian) G.NA.

After the jump, have a look at the new trailer for the sci-fi epic John Carter, Universal Studios is closing Jaws, another Harry Potter theme park may be on its way, the Prometheus trailer leak made everyone but the FOX Films CEO happy, Hanson releases their own beer and William Shatner takes on Carrie Fisher.

If the first teaser trailer didn’t leave you with a lasting impression of John Carter, perhaps this longer theatrical trailer will leave you wanting to see this sci-fi epic in March 2012. (IGN)

Say it isn’t so! Universal Studios Florida is shutting down the Jaws attraction to make room for something new. (The Baltimore Sun)

If Universal Studios get their way, Florida will not be the only home of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Hollywood is going to land one too! Can you hear the cash flowing in already? (LA Times)

I’m sure you remember the band Hanson and their biggest hit Mmmbop. While they’re still producing music, let’s just say they’re not as big as they once were. That means, it’s time to add things to the repertoire. Now they’ll be launching their own beer! MmmHop anyone? (Contact Music)

Bring on the war of the words. William Shatner responds to Carrie Fisher’s video about Star Wars being better than Star Trek.

It’s the beginning of December, so it’s the right time to get into the Christmas spirit. Let’s start it off with She & Him performing one of the classics.

Finally, listen to Bruno Mars sing about not giving up… with the help of some Sesame Street folks.
