Jay and Silent Bob Go Toy Shopping While Stoned



Probably the best thing you'll watch all week. I know..there were a lot of trailers..but seriously. Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) and Jason Mewes take a trip to a local Walmart in Michigan, very possibly for snacks..because..stoned.. and get 100% sidetracked by the toy aisles because TOYS ARE AWESOME!! We at Idle Hands celebrate the glory and wonder of toys nearly every day, but seldom can we capture the excitement we get from seeing new items on the shelves quite like Jay and Silent Bob do here. Jump in below and laugh your ass off!

Stephen King's IT Pushes Beyond Quaint TV Memories

New Line Cinema's IT Movie Poster
Growing up, I loved Stephen King novels. To say I devoured them is an understatement. That kid in the Monster Squad movie with the red T shirt? May as well have been me..minus the monster fighting. They were my buddies. While the movie adaptions of King's books started off strong, there are a handful of misses that often overshadow the good. I like to think the TV adaption for IT lands somewhere in the middle, triggering a horror fan's nostalgia and a love of all things Tim Curry dominating over the plodding pace, odd grown up reunion and devastatingly unscary finale.

Now..Warner Bros' New Line Cinema feature film looks to trigger your fear reflex. There's so much packed into IT that should scare the holy hell out of anyone reading, and so, the movie adaption should make a select few run from the theater weeping. WE CAN HOPE!! Check out the first teaser below...

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2 Set for March 9, 2018 Release

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
Wreck-It Ralph is escaping out of his arcade and into the expansive universe of the internet next year when “Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2” hits the big screen. Dave Hollis, head of distribution for The Walt Disney Studios, revealed the much-anticipated sequel’s title and told CinemaCon attendees that Jane Lynch and Jack McBrayer would be returning to the roster.

Also returning are the team behind the original “Wreck-It Ralph,” who won an Oscar® last month for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ billion-dollar-box-office-blockbuster “Zootopia.” Directors Rich Moore (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and Phil Johnston (writer, “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Zootopia,” “Cedar Rapids”), and producer Clark Spencer (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Bolt”) are hard at work on the movie. “To take these characters we love and have them enter the enormous world of the internet has given us so much to explore,” said Moore. “Our production team has been hard at work designing a world that takes something we all think we know – the internet – but shows it in a whole new, imaginative way.”

Netflix Death Note American Teaser Trailer
Life in the age of remakes, reboots and re-imaginings! Is it wonderful...or a living hell. I guess it depends on your perspective. For me, even if a rekindling of my geek loves via some studio's revamping of a favorite property gives me a 50/50 shot at some new media i'll love and with it, maybe NEW TOYS!!! It always comes back to toys. Most of you will still be on the fence even after watching the teaser for Netflix's Americanized Death Note, but hey...they could surprise you! They've certainly got the right crew at the wheel.

New York Comic Con Eliminating Multi-Day Passes

As the east end of the nation begins to thaw out from the last gasp of a very schizophrenic Winter, thoughts turn to the massive conventions lining up for every geek's dollar. New York Comic Con sent out an announcement today expressing that, while that are not ready to fire that starter pistol on ticket sales just yet, they are laying out some new guidelines that may impact a visitor's participation, especially if you were planning on flying in for the whole event.

The blinky email starts with the basics:

- Fan Verification will once again be in play. Anyone who did not register last year will need to get on that. If you registered last year, you are still in the system. The NYCC website explains the Fan Verification process thusly-
