As always we don’t get into book spoilers, but we do discuss how things are diverging.

We digress into a discussion on binge watching with recent examples of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Daredevil on Netflix.

But mostly we analyze what might really be happening in Westeros/Essos and make some wild guesses about prophecy and machinations.

New Alien Movie Confirmed With Director Neill Blomkamp

XenomorphGreat news for xenomorph fans! Neill Blomkamp has been (re?)-tapped to direct a new Aliens feature under Ridley Scott’s production company. Blomkamp has been teasing his involvement online and some details came out back in January from Io9 when it appeared it wasn’t going to happen.

The untitled sci-fi project is separate from Prometheus 2, which Fox is still making with Ridley Scott.

Excerpt and more details from Variety:

Blomkamp, who directed “District 9″ and the upcoming Sony feature “Chappie,” had been teasing the project in recent months but said the extra-terrestrial reboot was likely abandoned. It was supposed to star “Alien” veteran Sigourney Weaver.

But on Wednesday Blomkamp confirmed the tentpole was back on track at Fox.

“So I think this is officially my next film,” he confirmed on Instagram.

It’s unclear whether Weaver is still attached to the movie.

Lost Dr Seuss Book To Be Released In July

Random House announced on Wednesday that they will release a recently discovered manuscript w/illustrations by beloved author and artist Dr. Seuss.

Dr. Seuss - What Pet Should I GetThe book is titled What Pet Should I Get? and is scheduled for release on July 28. The publisher plans at least two more books, based on materials found in 2013 in the author’s home in La Jolla, California.

The materials had been set aside after his death when his wife, Audrey Geisel, was remodeling her home. She found a box filled with pages of text and sketches and set it aside with some of her husband’s other materials.

The box was rediscovered 22 years later, in the fall of 2013 by Audrey, and Claudia Prescott — Ted Geisel’s longtime secretary and friend — when they were cleaning out his office space. They found the full text and illustrations for What Pet Should I Get?, among other work.

What Pet Should I Get? was likely written between 1958 and 1962. The book features the same brother and sister seen in Dr. Seuss’ 1960 classic One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

Here’s a description from the official book listing

This never-ever-before-seen picture book by Dr. Seuss about making up one’s mind is the literary equivalent of buried treasure! What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one! The tale captures a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and uses it to illuminate a life lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but sometimes you just have to do it!

Born Theodore Seuss Geisel, Dr Seuss passed away in 1991 at the age of 87.
