Leonard Nimoy Hospitalized

Geek icon Leonard Nimoy was hospitalized last week after complaining of severe chest pains. This isn’t the first time the Star Trek star has been sent to the hospital for maladies related to his COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), and he’s taken to his personal Twitter account to urge fans and followers to give up smoking.

Hopefully, he’s on the mend; he’s started tweeting again. But if you think of him during your day, consider humming The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins or reminding your friends and loved ones to “Live Long and Prosper” in his honor.

Marion Cotillard Joins Assassin’s Creed Movie

It was announced back in January that the movie version of the popular video game series, Assassin’s Creed, was finally in production with Michael Fassbender in the lead role (he’s also producing). It’s unclear what time period and setting the film will take place in–some suggest our protagonist could travel to more than one place and time–but we now know we can expect a December 21, 2016 release!

Marion Cotillard has joined the cast, but her character is still under wraps. Who would you like to see her play? Are you more excited or nervous about this videogame-to-film adaptation?

François Dourlen uses ordinary objects, his phone, and his camera to transport the fictional world to ours (and make it a whole lot more interesting)! You’ll find photos of your favorite characters and scenes from movies, television shows, and video games that have been (at least partially) brought to life with everyday sights. To see them all, visit François’ website or follow him on Facebook and Instagram.
