Back in November I told you we were dangerously close to getting an official LEGO set based on the adventures of everyone's favorite Time Lord. Today LEGO Ideas made it official—we're getting an official Doctor Who set, courtesy of Andy Clark of Firaxis Games.
Yet another new restaurant with robot servers has opened in China. And the owners seem determined to test Disney's patience with intellectual property laws. Why? The name of the restaurant is apparently Wall.e — just like the cute little robot worker from the 2008 Pixar film.
Sometimes trailers can be a tad misleading. We've all seen trailers that got us all pumped up for films that turned out to be kind of weak. But the opposite happens too: Sometimes a great movie has a horrible, no-good trailer. Here are 10 amazing movies whose trailers made them look dreadful.
While many Pixar films are beloved box office hits, they often don't start out that way. In fact, if you ask Ed Catmull—the president of Disney and Pixar's animation studios—he'd be the first to tell you that Pixar movies "suck"—at least early on.
Mike McMaster did it. He built a Wall-E that is so good, not only is it a working robot, it's also so emotive, looking into its eyes could very well break your heart. Nevermind when it actually says something. Oh, my heart! Ack, how can a trash compacter from a Pixar film be so sweet?

You could practically make a flipbook out of the zillions of pictures (I counted) that track the building process of this adorable case built by a Russian modder.

If you don't already have a PlayStation 3 and your heart isn't a deep, deep black, consider Best Buy's current offer, featuring one of the better value-added bundles, featuring both Media Molecule's LittleBigPlanet and Pixar's Wall-E on Blu-ray.
If Arab gamers want to play Western games, they'd have to play them in something other than their native Arabic. That's unfortunate! Well, that's going to change - THQ is localizing multiplatform based-on-the-movie WALL-E game for the Middle East. This is a first! According to THQ export sales manager Luke Keighran:
Cutest. Robot. Ever. That was the biggest takeaway I got from glimpsing the Wall-E Wii game at THQ's Fall and holiday season preview event today, and as the game is set to launch simultaneously with the movie, I have a feeling that that googly-eyed little guy, whose function is to pick up and compact garbage, will…
Despite reporting modest revenue growth for its 13th consecutive year, THQ reported a net loss of $35.3 million for the fiscal year ending March 2008. The company's sales totaled $1030.5 million, relatively little change from last year's $1,026.9 sales.
