At the box office this weekend, there’s the found-footage flick about teenagers with superpowers in Chronicle. There’s also a solid ghost movie The Woman in Black starring Harry… I mean Daniel Radcliffe. Finally, there’s the family flick Big Miracle. Nothing particularly special about that one, but at least Kristen Bell is in it!
After the jump, a bit more on Chronicle, a brand new trailer for The Hunger Games, Katy Perry wants to do a 3D concert film and a whole bunch of Youtube videos including a look at the death of Superman, the new Volkswagon Superbowl spot, The Rock playing a ukelele, the definition of “swog” and a new web series from Wong Fu Productions.

For those that are interested in seeing Chronicle this weekend, here’s another teaser for the sci-fi superpowers flick.
It’s a big weekend for Matt Landis (son of director Jon Landis). Why? Well his first screenplay to hit the theatres (Chronicle) is getting rave reviews among critics and audiences. In addition to that, he just released his short film The Death and Return of Superman. This “educational parody” is a hilarious look at DC Comics’ decision to kill and bring back the Man of Steel.
Here’s the full commercial for Volkswagon Superbowl spot. It runs for 76 seconds, so I’m curious as to how they’re going to cut it down to 30 seconds…
Is your name John Carter? If so, you’d be eligible to for a secret screening of the film and also take part in a contest. Darn, looks like I’ll be missing out on this one.

Wanna see Kristen Bell lose her mind over a sloth? I’m sure I heard a yes somewhere, so take a look here.
Got swog? Well if you don’t have swag, it’s very likely you got swog. Curious to know what swog is? Let Ryan Higa and his fellow Youtubers explain it to you.
New web series to check out called Home is Where the Hans are starring Jamie Nocher and Ellen Wong (you may recognize her as Knives Chau in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World).
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson displays his vocal chops in this preview of him singing “What A Wonderful World”. Who knew he can play the ukelele as well?
