Below you’ll find links to several features that debuted this week, all you have to do is kick back and enjoy the content. That’s a pretty good deal if you ask me!
Write A Movie With Us: Week 7
Week 7 of Write A Movie With Us is all about resolving the tale of the previous two weeks in the final act. How will your protagonist’s journey end? Will the threat be eliminated or will the world succumb to darkness? That’s your call! As Chris stated last week, this week is really just a continuation of week 5 and week 6, so if you’d like to catch up or revise your work on those weeks, go right ahead! Also, Chris made a thematically-appropriate concept trailer for the project that you can see in this week’s post! You and your fellow collaborators have hard worked for this moment, so head into the writers’ room and bring this script to a close!
The Original Gentlemen: Episode IX
The latest edition of THEOG is packed with that old-time LEOG goodness that loyal fans knew and loved.

Listen in as the crew talks about the demise of our beloved Spill.com, the sequel to The Shining, Fox’s Almost Human, and Chris’ adventures in China and Japan. This is one THEOG (of nine) that you do not want to miss!

The INTERN-Net Show #11: Farewell Spill, Terminator, X-Men
This week’s episode of INTERN-Net Show starts off on a somber note, as our host Chris Harrison reminisces about Spill.com and gives his thoughts about the site’s closure. After the sad news, it’s back to basics and X-Men, Terminator, the Amazing Spider-Man, and Fox’s plan to expand its own cinematic universe are all on the menu.

5 Roles Jason Momoa Could Play in Batman vs. Superman
This week, we were informed that actor Jason Momoa is in talks to appear in the the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. Of course, there was no announcement detailing which character Momoa would be portraying in the movie and the DC universe is full of ripped heroes and villains, so the only option we had was to engage in wild speculation. Mason Daniel of the INTERN-Net crew has a few ideas about who Momoa could be in the sequel to Man of Steel, so check out his thoughts and feel free to add your own!
