Week in Geek #113: L is Real 2401, Spider-Man Home Safe and More

Posted by Anthony Mango Saturday, August 1, 2020
Welcome to another edition of WEEK IN GEEK here at Fanboys Anonymous—a rundown of some of the events, news and stories that went down over the past few days in the geek culture spectrum.

This week in geek culture Fanboys Anonymous nerd recap

Here are some of the topics I felt like voicing my opinions about:

L is Real 2401

24 years and 1 month after the release of Super Mario 64, it seems the L is Real 2401 mystery has been solved. Luigi's model, textures and other information have been found in the game. I'm not even a gamer and I think this is crazy enough to mention here!

AMC and Universal Reach a Deal

After 17 days of being in theaters, Universal Pictures movies will be allowed to go to VOD platforms, provided they share 10% of the profit with AMC Theaters.

This might end up being game changing. If both sides like the results, we'll see other chains doing something similar. Then, over time, less and less movie theaters will be open, as less people will go there as opposed to just waiting a few weeks and staying home. Then, that will give the theaters less leverage, and eventually, the chains will change that to 5% profit sharing or whatever. Eventually, nothing. It will just be "release it in the theaters and we'll release it as a VOD and you only get a share of the theater sales" or something.

I don't really know what to think of this. COVID has disrupted so many things, including the film industry. It's going to be an historic year that moves things either in the most natural progression, but forced, or it ruins everything.

Spider-Man: Home Safe

Rumor has it this is the title for the third Spider-Man film. If so, I hate it. I don't get why they would have to keep the Home theme going just for the sake of it, and even if that were the case, I think there could be much better options available (depending on the plot).

Home Sweet Home
Home Free even works better
Home Run might sound more like a baseball thing, but maybe that can even work
Stuck at Home with him being on house arrest?

I'd rather it just be something like Spider-Man: Web of Lies.
