Posted on November 10, 2011 by PopFunkHopes were high when news of the Bruce Lee Action Museum (creatively acronym'd, BLAM) were announced earlier this year. Unfortunately, by June the original plan to turn the icon's former Hong Kong residence into a memorializing museum was scrapped, leaving the project without a home. Until last week, that is. On November 3, the Bruce Lee family proposed the BLAM museum project to the Seattle City Council. Lee had lived in the city throughout the '50s and '60s, and was subsequently buried in Seattle's Lakeview Cemetery after his death in 1973. The proposal cites a potential development location as the Chinatown-International district. Though the city is still waiting on a full proposal (including site availability and funding strategies), the likelihood of this deal going through appears promising, if the enthusiasm of Council president Richard Conlin is any indication. "It's amazing how popular Bruce Lee is when you go to other countries. This is an astonishing opportunity for a great tourist attraction." According to the BLAM manifesto, the future museum will include "exhibits ranging from movie memorabilia to training equipment to writings and photographs to personal memorabilia," as well as "a permanent exhibition space, a gallery for visiting exhibitions, a store, a theater, a meditation space, an outdoor training area, a research library, and a cafe." While it may still be years before we can visit the Bruce Lee Action Museum, Popfunk is currently memorializing the martial arts legend on a series of officially licensed Bruce Lee shirts. And just for good measure, here's Bruce Lee schooling Chuck Norris: Read More
Posted on November 7, 2011 by PopFunkTaking your turn as an immortal entertainment icon will soon be just a mouse click away thanks to the folks at Entertainment Games. Their free-to-play episodic adventure game called Retro World will be launching November 8 on Facebook before expanding to Google+ and tablet devices. In it, we'll see Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe live again within the game, just not necessarily as themselves.
In an interesting twist, Presley and Monroe will actually play characters within the story-driven game. In the first Retro World launch, "Owl Files", Monroe will play a '60s era spy. A future series will feature Presley as a doctor, much like his last film role, Change of Habit. This format will allow the stars to continue appearing over time in multiple levels as multiple characters. Additionally, users will be able to explore the entire game world with both icons as custom avatars that will be made available for purchase. Entertainment Games hopes to tap into the baby boomer audience that has heretofore been very responsive to other Facebook games. "We think the new generation of gamers is the 40-plus crowd," President Gene Mauro explained. "They don't want games that look like Saturday morning cartoons. They wants something that appeals to them visually, and has actual gameplay at the core. Story-driven adventure games helped advance the game industry forward 20 years ago, and we believe what is old is new again." While that remains to be seen, there is no doubt that Elvis and Marilyn will be forever in style. Here at Popfunk, we've made it our business to keep it that way. Check out our wide variety of Elvis shirts and Marilyn Monroe shirts! Read More
Posted on November 4, 2011 by PopFunkSony Pictures announced plans this week for an all new Popeye animated feature to be penned by Jay Scherick and David Ronn. Scherick and Ronn were the team behind last summer's blockbuster version of The Smurfs. Popeye, Olive Oyl, Swee' Pea, Bluto and Wimpy will receive the same 3D animated treatment as the little blue guys, courtesy of Sony Pictures Animation and Arad Productions. Michelle Raimo, president of production at Sony Pictures Animation, is excited for the studio's new take on the world's most famous sailor man. "We're thrilled that Jay and Dave are helping us reintroduce Popeye to a new generation. Their take on the world of Popeye has just the right blend of comedy, adventure and heart -- all the elements that made a great animated film." The film is expected to hit theaters in 2013.

Posted on November 2, 2011 by PopFunkYesterday, DC Comics and Mattel, Inc. announced a new multi-year agreement that will extend their partnership into unprecedented territory for the next several years. Most notably, Mattel will now have access to the complete DC Comics universe, spanning more than a thousand DC superheroes and super villains. Among them, classics like Batman, Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman, along with the more obscure heroes like Aquaman, Green Arrow, Hawkman and Shazam. The deal will also include new toy lines for the long awaited Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel films, as well as a number of animated series for Cartoon Network. Mattel Vice President Tim Kilpin was understandably excited about the future of the relationship. "We are thrilled to further our long-standing partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products and support the extensive DC Comics portfolio's development. The DC Comics characters are rich in story and we look forward to bringing these popular characters to life through innovative product design."
