(Source: kidzworld.com) If you’ve ever dreamed of catching the golden snitch in a rousing game of Quidditch, you just might get your chance this Spring. Universal and Warner Bros. just announced the projected opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, a new theme park in Orlando, Florida that’s set to open in the Spring of 2010 as part of Universal’s Islands of Adventure. The park cost more than $250 million and brought back the original art and set directors to translate the movies into the theme park.

Experience Hogwarts

Visitors enter the park through the Hogsmeade station archway while a train whistle and plume of smoke sound the arrival of the Hogwarts Express. Daniel Radcliffe says Harry Potter fans will love the park. He said that when he was younger he would come out of movie theatres wishing he could experience the worlds on the screen. With the opening of Wizarding World, lucky Harry Potter fans will get that chance.

The project is being developed as a possible directing vehicle for Ridley Scott, which would re-team him with Logan, who co-wrote the script for his Oscar-winning epic, Gladiator, with David Franzoni and William Nicholson.

Larrabee will be Intel’s first discrete, or standalone, graphics processor in about 10 years and is expected to compete with graphics chips from Nvidia and AMD’s ATI unit. The demo used an early “stepping,” or version, of Larrabee, which is expected to come out commercially sometime next year.

Larrabee will be targeted initially at the gaming market. The demonstration was based on the game Enemy Territory: Quake Wars from Splash Damage



(Source: latinoreview.com) I’ve seen the 2012 trailer in theaters several times now as well as a few passes online whenever I feel like being underwhelmed. It’s not that the movie is underwhelming in any regard, because a sentiment like that might kill Roland Emmerich, but it’s the sheer scale of the visuals. Watching a plane swoop between two crumbling buildings just looks like another CGI painting on Apple Trailers. Blown up to theatrical size, it looks impressive.

Even the new way Emmerich decides to destroy the White House.
