Shortly after revealing details on Game of Thrones, Telltale Games has changed gears to focus on another of the studio’s episodic titles currently brewing in development: Tales from the Borderlands.
Inspired by Gearbox Software’s wonderfully meta franchise, the series was initially revealed late last year and since then, we’ve gradually learned more about Telltale’s space-faring adventure, after details on the game’s rather eye-catching voice cast emerged. Now, though, the studio has revealed the first footage for Tales from the Borderlands, which hints at the vault hunting storyline that will underpin Telltale’s new franchise.
Maintaining the gleefully violent nature from its galactic forebearers, the trailer also reveals some of the leading stars of the upcoming series, which is to take place on Pandora after the events of Borderlands 2. Here’s a round-up of the voice actors:

Telltale Games is a busy studio. While hard at work on a Game of Thrones title, the game developer is also taking on a much more light-hearted franchise-Borderlands. The company is putting its story-first gameplay mentality to good use in Tales from the Borderlands, the latest entry in the franchise created by Gearbox Software. The series is already known for its irreverent humor and impossibly high number of firearms, but Telltale is taking the shooting franchise in a more narratively focused direction. Set after Borderlands 2, Tales puts players in control of Rhys (voiced by Troy Baker) and Fiona (voiced by »

Yep, there's a CG animated movie coming out called Animal Crackers, which is based on the classic kids snack food. I think it hilarious that Hollywood is now moving in the direction of adapting food into movies. I think the Peeps feature was the last one to be announced.
Animal Crackers will feature the voices of Sylvester Stallone, Ian McKellen, Danny DeVito, Patrick Warburton, Gilbert Gottfried, Raven-Symoné, and Harvey Fierstein. This is the synopsis that was released:
Animal Crackers follows a family whose life is turned upside down when they inherit a rundown circus and a mysterious box of Animal Crackers, which magically change the person who eats them into the animal they have eaten — including monkeys, giraffes, lions, tigers and bears.
I guess that's the way to go for a movie like this. I guess there's a chance it could be a fun flick to watch. The project is »

Seth MacFarlane is currently busy directing his third feature effort, the comedy sequel Ted 2, and he’s taken to Twitter today to reveal that David Hasselhoff will appear in the film, with the Hoff subsequently offering up a few words about his mystery role.
“It’s a pretty funny bit that we’re doing in the movie, and [Seth] is a lovely guy,” Hasselhoff tells Digital Spy. “I can’t really talk about the gag, but it’s very irreverent and very funny. He tore me up on the Comedy Central roast, and I get a chance to get back at him! He’s a good guy, we don’t meet too many people in showbiz where they say, ‘Hey buddy, I’ll call you back, I’ve got something for you’, and then you actually hear from them again. This guy’s a stand-up guy.”
