Back to the Future Game Coming to Wii

Telltale Games has announced that Back to the Future: The Game will be coming to the Wii later this year.
Telltale Games has released a number of episodic titles through the WiiWare service, such as Tales of Monkey Island, Sam & Max Beyond Time and Space and Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People, but their recent tiles have typically been released on other platforms. Nintendo fans can rejoice however as Back to the Future: The Game is coming to the Nintendo Wii.
In a press statement issues today Telltale Games announced that a deal has been signed with Nintendo to release titles on the console. The first confirmed title will be Back to the Future: The Game, due out in October in North America for only $19.99.
At the moment it is unknown if more of their titles will be released on the Nintendo Wii but the press release does refer to Back to the Future: The Game as the first title in the deal to be released so we assume more are coming. The press release only mentions North America but we'll keep you updated about whether or not it will be released in Europe as well. Telltale co-founder and CEO, Dan Connors said this about the announcement:
“Securing a publishing agreement with Nintendo of America ensures that we can make our popular content available on every major console platform. This signing is a significant milestone in our long-term growth strategy. Back to the Future: The Game is a great fit for the Wii platform and we’re excited to bring it to retail this holiday.”

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…
