  1. QUESTION:

  2. QUESTION:
    How long does it take a movie just released to reach netflix?
    Does Netflix stream recently released movies? For example if avengers is to be released in cinema's on the 19th of july 2012 how soon will netflix have it available to stream?
    Thanks in advance

    • ANSWER:
      In general, major motion pictures do not become available to stream for up to 10 years because of first run rights that the premium channels have. Netflix has made a number of agreements to help with this problem. The most significant of these is the deal with EPIX. This arrangement grants Netflix access to titles from Lionsgate, MGM and Paramount 90 days after they arrive at EPIX. This translates to about 8-10 months after the movie is released in theaters. The Avengers is distributed by Paramount. I would not expect Netflix to have it before January of next year. They have also made deals for first run rights with DreamWorks, The Weinstein Company and FilmDistrict. Best Picture winner "The Artist" will be on Netflix immediately after its disc exclusivity period ends.

  5. QUESTION:
    How often does netflix and lovefilm update their films?
    Lets say a film came out on the 20th of January 2013, when would it be able to be streamed on both:
    A)Netflix
    B)LoveFilm
    Also which one is better in your opinion and give reasons if you want. Ya know, you don't have to but it would be much appreciated!
    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      This cannot be answered as it is different case by case.

      Some film studios refuse to offer their films for streaming at all.
      Some films refuse to offer their films to be streamed on Netflix some refuse to allow LoveFilm to stream their movies. Some studios don't allow either platforms to stream their content and only allow other platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Instant Watch or their own content provider such as HBO.

      So to find out when a new film will make its way to Netflix or Lovefilm one would have to know what studio owns the film and if they have a deal with either provider.

      But for instance take a small film like "Jeff Who Lives at Home" it was released 16 March 2012 and showed up for streaming in Jan. 2013 so that is roughly 10 months. "One For the Money" was released Jan 2012 and showed up Jan. 2013 so that is roughly 12 months. A really small film "Sleepwalk With Me" was released August 2012 and again Jan. 2013 it was being streamed so roughly 8 months.

      So you might say a year for bigger studio films and 8 months to 10 for smaller indie films.

      As to which is better? I cannot say with any true degree of accuracy (due to the fact that Lovefilm is not available in the US) but here is an article comparing the 2. It is from November of 2012 so it should be up to date.

  6. QUESTION:
    When does the movie The Divide come out?
    Does anyone know when The Divide, starring Milo Ventimiglia and Lauren German, is being released? According to IMDb, not until January of 2012, but another site says it was already released March of this year. Can anyone help out?
    Thanks so much for the link to the site's website. Does anyone know which select theaters it's coming out in? Like what states?

    • ANSWER:
      The movie's website says it comes out in January 2012.

  7. QUESTION:
    Any anime movies being released in 2011 in theaters?
    Doesn't matter if they're live action or not.
    I know there was the Gantz one that came out in January, and another that's coming in April, but are there any others?
    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I know Akira is going to be a live action but I'm not sure if it's going to be this year or not. Then Death Note and Battle Angel but I'm not sure if those are coming out this year. Most of the live action anime movies are set to come on in the year 2012 or 2013.

  8. QUESTION:
    When was the last time The Lion King been shown on tv?
    I don't get it. The last I saw it was on ABC,and that was over ten years ago. Is Disney planning to show it next year since their movies usually premiere on television after releasing the special edition Bluray and DVD?

    • ANSWER:
      Disney re-release there DVD'S every ten years, this way they get a new cycle of 3-13 year olds every 10 years.

      They don't show there movies on TV because they have to make money, if they show their Movies on TV, then their DVD sales will be down.

      Disney is a Business.

      1994 - Lion King released in cinema's
      1994/1995 - Lion King first release on VHS
      2002 - The film was re-issued on January 1, 2002 for IMAX and large-format theaters,
      2003 - Second release - October 7, 2003, the film was re-released on VHS and DVD
      2011 - shown in cinema's again
      2011/2012 - Third Release - released on DVD/Blu Ray/3D

      So you can be sure, their will be a Directors cut, or an extended edition released on Blu Ray in about 2020.

      Disney Films are hardly ever on TV, except the really old films.

  9. QUESTION:
    Will they reboot the Star Wars Movies in the Next decade or so ?
    I just saw A New Hope and the special effects were like 100000xs better in Star Wars 1-3 than the 4th movie !

    This movie needs a reboot don't you think ?

    • ANSWER:
      In January 2012, Lucas announced that he would step away from blockbuster films and instead produce smaller art-house films.

      When asked in an interview about continuing the series he stated:

      "Why would I make any more,... when everybody yells at you all the time and says what a terrible person you are?"

      All six films will be re-released in order starting in 2012, with the 3-D conversion process taking at least a year to complete per film.

  10. QUESTION:
    Do you think Batman's villain is meant to be a symbol of Romney?
    Romney was a vulture capitalist who got rich by putting families out of business. Now he won't release his tax returns. The villain in Batman is named Bain which is the same as the company Romney ran.

    Seems capitalists have no feelings and are just greedy for money after all.

    • ANSWER:
      The villain "Bane" was created in January of 1993. He became one of the most popular villains of the comic series on which the new trilogy is based. Hence, he was the villain used for the climax.

      In October of 1983, 9 months later, Romney, who co-founded "Bain" (spelled differently) in 1984, announced he would run for the US Senate. In 2008, Romney ran for President. He lost in the primary. The Batman film series was already in the works and by December of 2008, just a month after the election, the general story for the new movie was already written. Romney was just one of many possible contenders for the 2012 election at that time. Also, they had hoped the movie would come out last year, but the Director Christopher Nolan had committed to Inception, delaying the film until today.

      So when Rush Limbaugh asks "do you think it is a coincidence?" The answer is a resounding YES, you moron!

  11. QUESTION:
    What will be the next predicted date that the world will end, after December 21st 2012 is over?
    What will the people on the History Channel make up this time?

    • ANSWER:
      The people on History Channel did not make it up, they simply used the already-existing hoax as a way to improve their ratings (the doomsday prediction for Dec. 21, 2012 was created by charlatans who had run an earlier hoax, about Planet-X -- we all died on May 13, 2003).

      Some of the "documentaries" used by the Hysteric Channel were actually designed by Sony Pictures, who had invested over 200 million in Roland's movie "2012", and who had started to panic when the popularity of the Big 2012 Hoax had started to die BEFORE the release of the movie.

      Something must have worked because their 200 million investment turned into a 700 million gross intake at the box office.

      There have been many other "ends of the world" in the meantime, but most went unnoticed by the Hysteria Channel, as they would not have drawn as many viewers (ratings) and because no one actually provided them with already-make "documentaries" (you think the Missed-story Channel would actually spend money making these documentaries?).

      There are already more than a dozen important "end-of-the-world" dates known for after 2012. My favorite one is September 28, 2020, because it is also claimed to be an important date in yet another Ancient Calendar (something about using old civilizations as "predictors" of these doomsday).

      Such an approach allows for the preparation of many "documentaries" that can pretend to be based on acient prophecies (as if anyone would bother to actually check before broadcasting the "documentaries").

      My own prediction is that the date will be changed to Sept. 20, 2020 (to add the numerology angle AND to pick a date with "astronomical" meaning -- Equinox).

      In the same way that when José (the man who invented the fake "end of the Mayan calendar") had calculated the date of the "Mayan" prediction, he had, at one point, come up with Dec. 23, 2012. However, the charlatans who created the Big 2012 Hoax (as a re-run of the Planet-X hoax) prefered to use the day of the Solstice, which would have a bigger meaning for Mayan calendars (in the Mayan's common calendar, a real one, they used the day of winter solstice as their "New Year Day"). That is why the end-of-the-world was shifted to the 21st. Otherwise, one would have had to explain why a calendar ends on the third day of a year... (it would have been like claiming that our own calendar predicted the end of the world for January 3, 2000)

      Just before the creation of the Big 2012 Hoax, there was a separate prediction for the end of the world of December 12, 2012 (yes, 12, not 21). But this was not connected to the Big 2012 Hoax. In fact, the Big 2012 Hoax became so popular, so quickly, that the people behind the 12/12/12 hoax had to give up.

      For all these reasons, I believe that the next big "popular" end-of-the-world will be Sept. 20, 2020 (not Sept. 28); of course, there will be hundreds of less-popular ends-of-the-world between now and then (for example, every time a comet passes close to the Sun... or fails to pass close to the Sun).

  12. QUESTION:

    Yes, I mean the House of Anubis on Nickelodeon. I know that it's going to start sometime in January of 2012, but I'd like to know the specific day.

  14. QUESTION:
    What are some good forbidden romance vampire books like Vampire Academy?
    I'm REALLY into the theme Vampire Academy has, which is the forbidden romance between Rose and her older instructor!
    Are there any good books like that? like when the main character falls in love or something with an older instructor, teacher, etc? And it should be with vampires!

    Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      Here are some YA recommendations. Probably most of them will not have vampires though, but these are the ones I think are similar to VA in terms of heroines/love interests.

      Bloodlines by Richelle Mead
      *The Golden Lily - releases June 19, 2012
      Note: This is the spin-off series to Vampire Academy. If you loved VA, you're gonna want to check this out. There's not really much romance going on in book 1, but I expect there will be quite a bit of forbidden romance later on in the series!! :)

      The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell ♥
      *The Springsweet - releases April 17, 2012
      Note: This was so unlike anything I'd ever read, in a good way. It made me want to read more historical/paranormals. The forbidden romance in this mostly has to do with caste.

  18. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know when they might start filming New Moon the sequel for Twilight?
    I love Twilight!!!! and I really want to c how they will do on New Moon.

    • ANSWER:
      According to Kristen Stewart, they are supposed to start filming in March 2009.

      According to IMDb, New Moon is scheduled to come out in 2010. And according to movies.com, the release date is January 1, 2010.

      Back to IMDb, if they do Eclipse, it is supposed to come out in 2012. And then Breaking Dawn in 2013. I know that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson (and I think a few other characters) are signed on for three movies, leaving Breaking Dawn out. But you can not make Eclipse without Breaking Dawn. However, Stephenie Meyer stated that it might be impossible to make Breaking Dawn into a movie and if it would be, it should be made into two movies.

  19. QUESTION:
    If the movie 2012 was never made, do you think people would be talking about the end of the world?
    I remember when Armageddon and Deep Impact was released in theaters back in 1998, I've been hearing Christians saying that the was gonna end on January 1, 2000. I'm just wondering that if a Hollywood screenwriter never came up with the idea of the world ending in 2012 and wrote a script about it, do you think people would be talking about the world ending anytime soon?

    • ANSWER:
      2012 is not the end of the world.. and that movie is ridiculous. 2012 is going to be a year where people on earth (you and myself) will connect more with our inner spirtuality. its a spiritual year.

    • ANSWER:
      2012 – A Scientific Reality Check

      The Galileo spacecraft's view of the Moon and Earth On December 16, 1992, 8 days after its encounter with Earth, the Galileo spacecraft looked back from a distance of about 6.2 million kilometers (3.9 million miles) to capture this remarkable view of the Moon in orbit about Earth. Image credit: NASA/JPL There apparently is a great deal of interest in celestial bodies, and their locations and trajectories at the end of the calendar year 2012. Now, I for one love a good book or movie as much as the next guy. But the stuff flying around through cyberspace, TV and the movies is not based on science. There is even a fake NASA news release out there… So here is the scientific reality on the celestial happenings in the year 2012.

      Nibiru, a purported large object headed toward Earth, simply put - does not exist. There is no credible evidence - telescopic or otherwise - for this object's existence. There is also no evidence of any kind for its gravitational affects upon bodies in our solar system.

      I do however like the name Nibiru. If I ever get a pet goldflish (and I just may do that sometime in early 2013), Nibiru will be at the top of my list.

      The Mayan calendar does not end in December 2012. Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period, but then – just as your calendar begins again on January 1 - another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.

      There are no credible predictions for worrisome astronomical events in 2012. The activity of the sun is cyclical with a period of roughly 11 years and the time of the next solar maximum is predicted to occur in the period 2010 – 2012. However, the Earth routinely experiences these periods of increased solar activity – for eons - without worrisome effects. The Earth’s magnetic field, which deflects charged particles from the sun, does reverse polarity on time scales of about 400,000 years but there is no evidence that a reversal, which takes thousands of years to occur, will begin in 2012. Even if this several thousand year-long magnetic field reversal were to begin, that would not affect the Earth’s rotation nor would it affect the direction of the Earth’s rotation axis… only Superman can do that.

      The only important gravitational tugs experienced by the Earth are due to the moon and sun. There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades, Earth will not cross the galactic plane in 2012, and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible. Each December the Earth and Sun align with the approximate center of the Milky Way Galaxy but that is an annual event of no consequence.

      The predictions of doomsday or dramatic changes on December 21, 2012 are all false. Incorrect doomsday predictions have taken place several times in each of the past several centuries. Readers should bear in mind what Carl Sagan noted several years ago; "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

      For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, the burden of proof is on the people making these claims. Where is the science? Where is the evidence? There is none, and all the passionate, persistent and profitable assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, cannot change that simple fact. There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.

  24. QUESTION:
    Do movies from America go to Canada before they come to England?
    Hi I'm visiting Toronto in a few months and wondered if there will be any movies in theatres that have not yet been released in England? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Ha! Ha! That's a question I asked myself but in the opposite direction since I lived on this side of the ocean and went on your side.

      Check on the site http://www.imdb.com for a few movies. Check for the "Release Date" in the "details section. For most of the movies you see a link "SEE MORE...". Click on that. Then you have a list of countries with the release date. You see it's not always the same.

      Generally, american movies are in Canada the same day.

      BEFORE, I would say in US/Canada it was a little before for here than in UK.

      NOW: If it's a movie that costed a lot to make and expect to be a bluckbusters, it's the same date or very close.

      Let's compare a few movies:

      BEFORE:
      Ocean's Eleven: Canada: 7 December 2001 vs UK: 15 February 2002
      Titanic: Canada: 19 December 1997 vs UK: 23 January 1998

      NOW:
      Mr. & Mrs. Smith: Canada: 10 June 2005 vs UK: 10 June 2005 (idem!)
      Transformers: Dark of the Moon: Canada: 29 June 2011 vs UK 29 June 2011 (idem!)
      Larry Crowne: Canada: 1 July 2011 vs UK: 1 July 2011 (idem!)
      Flight with Denzel Washington: Canada:2 November 2012 and UK:1 February 2013

      So see, it's the same or sometimes before.
      I suggest you to check IMDB for a few movies. :-)

  25. QUESTION:
    Is FMA Brotherhood a sequel or a different version?
    Is it a continuation to FMA or a remake of it?

    • ANSWER:
      Short . . .
      They are two different series, not two seasons

      Long . . .
      Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood are two different series.

      Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) was written in the time that the manga was being released. After about 25 episodes, the show quickly caught up with the manga, but the creator of the manga, Hiromu Arakawa didn't want fillers so they continued the show, making up a different storyline to the original. In FMA, the movie: Conqueror of Shamballa directly follows the anime and is the real end to the tale.

      The OVAs are:
      - Chibi Party
      - Kids
      - Liveaction
      - Alchemists vs. Homunculi
      - Reflections

      After the manga was finished, they created a new anime (FMA:B), closely following the original storyline. They made the first few episodes have a fast pace, with a lot going on in them, seeing as they had already been done in the first 25 episodes in FMA (2003), but after that the story changes dramatically.

      You can watch the OVAs, but they're not part of the actual story. They are:
      - The Blind Alchemist
      - Simple People
      - The Chronicle of Teacher/Tales of the Master
      - Yet Another Man's Battlefield

      There are new characters, and some other characters are taken away.
      There is a whole new plot too
      The intentions of the homunculus are different.
      There are different main villains
      I could go on . . . but I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it.

      There is also an upcoming movie out in 2012 in America, licensed by Funimation for FMA:B. It's coming out on January 20, 2012. It's already out in Japan. The Sacred Star of Milos (movie title) is set during the time Edward realized Alphonse's human body existed somewhere, with the logic that that knowledge would encourage him to travel to another area to do research. It doesn’t really have any impact on the actual story.

It's very crucial that you get your feelings out - but don't ever inflict harm on your own body because your body is so sacred. I wish I could tell every young girl with an eating disorder, or who has harmed herself in any way, that she's worthy of life and that her life has meaning. You can overcome and get through anything.

      •[on The Beatles song "Yesterday"] This song brings up so many memories and emotions because the lyrics are truly heartfelt and written with such incredible feeling in each word. The Beatles are such an inspiration to me.

      •There were two people [who were there for me]. No matter how many times we fight, we will always be in each others' lives. Miley Cyrus and I are strong headed. When we fight it's brutal and we're like, "We're never going to be friends again!" Then two days later, were like, "I love you and I miss you!" Selena Gomez and I, we never fight. She's not a confrontational person at all. Both of them will never leave my life no matter what happens, because we've been through so much together.

  28. QUESTION:
    Which movie will be the highest grossing movie of 2012 ?
    IMO The dark knight rises will be the highest i think it will cross 1 billion mark

    What u think of these ??
    1. The amazing spiderman
    2. The avengers
    3. The hobbit
    4. The dark knight rises

    • ANSWER:
      "The Dark Knight Rises" will probably hit it big and has a very high chance of joining the billion dollar club. "The Hobbit" will come in at second, but it also has the high chance of becoming the highest grossing film of 2012 considering the film will aim the theaters in December 14, and it will easily collect the money in January 2013 due to the fact that January is the month where the weakest movies are released. "The Avengers" at third and "The Amazing Spiderman" at fourth....

      1. The Dark Knight Rises - Billion - .2 Billion
      2. the Hobbit - 0 Million - Billion
      3. The Avengers - 0 Million
      4. The Amazing Spiderman - $ 600 Million

  30. QUESTION:
    Should i watch full metal alchemist or full metal alchemist: Brotherhood?
    What is the difference between the two?

    • ANSWER:
      Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. It's my favourite (and the ultimate) anime. It is the best anime I've ever seen. After watching the series many times over, I’m still so touched. I laugh (a lot), I cry (A LOT) and I get so pumped. It includes so many different aspects, some humorous, some philosophical, some that just make you think or cry. The emotions are so relatable and understandable. The characters were all developed so well, from the antagonists to the protagonists. The plot is made so well, it's so believable and intriguing. There are no episodes that aren't needed; they all are there for a reason which leads up to the conclusion. Everything is done so well. Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood is the ultimate anime. In my opinion, it will never be defeated.

      FMA was just good.

This could be our generations starwars if they did it right unlike halo or dooms lol. I would like to know the most recent and your favorite final fantasy or any diamonds in the ruff as far as great underrated RPGs

    • ANSWER:
      Final Fantasy XIV is the latest but this one is Online and it sucks, really, don't waste your money (got a 4 out of 10 score).

      Soon there will be Final Fantasy XIII-2 (December 15, 2011 in Japan; January 31, 2012 in North America; February 3, 2012 in Europe.) On PSN and XBox.

      There will also be Final Fantasy Type-0 but there is no release date for any country outside Japan (October 27, 2011) On PSP.

      The one that the most hardcore fans are expecting, is Final Fantasy Versus XIII, there is no official release date, but it's after both the games above will be released. On PSN only.

      Final Fantasy IX is my favorite. This is the most underrated game of the series.

    When is the next Star Trek - rebooted movie due out?
    Really thought the first reboot was a refreshing take on the stalling and stale franchise. It got a few of my non Trek friends interested so it must be good!
    My impatience knows no bounds!
    So when's the new film coming out?
    Cheers :)))

    • ANSWER:
      Well according to IMDB.com Pro, they started the Pre-production process at the beginning of September. And filming is slated to start in December/January with a release at the end of 2012.

      But that is all subject to change of course. Here is the page for the film as it stands now: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1408101/

      I also can't wait for the film to come out and pray that it's as good as the first one! I hope my info helped ease your pain a bit. :)

  43. QUESTION:
    why was the texas chainsaw massacre 3d delayed to january 2013?
    It was originally set for October 5th 2012 but now changed to January 4th 2013

    • ANSWER:
      It's a business decision by the studio. They have several movies to release, and they want to place all of them to the best cumulative advantage. I think they feel the legions of TCM fanatics will be excited for this movie whether it comes out near Halloween or not. The movie they have moved into the October 5th slot hasn't the same level of notoriety yet. TCM 3D hasn't been screened to any audience yet, so the report of people walking out is nonsense. I actually was on the set over the summer, and everyone involved in the film was beyond excited about what they were doing, and from what I saw, they were making an incredible horror film. My mind was blown. And, if you love the original, you'll be glad to know, the guys making the new film do, too. It sucks to wait until January, but I'm confident you and I will both find it well worth it.

  44. QUESTION:
    When does the lion king one, 1 and a half, and 2 come out of the vault?
    please only answer if you really know. when do the lion king movies come out of the disney vault?

    • ANSWER:
      according to wikipedia
      A DVD boxed set of the three The Lion King films (in two-disc Special Edition formats) was released on December 6, 2004. In January 2005, the film, along with the sequels, went back into moratorium,but new and used copies still sell very well.

      using the usual 7 year rule of movies being brought out of the vault, that would mean January of 2012 even though the 15th anniversery of the movie would be June of 2009.
      hopefully they will honor the anniversery instead of making everyone wait the usual 7 years

  45. QUESTION:
    where is bel ami being released?
    bel ami (movie) is supposed to be released on Wednesday, but I checked my area and it wont' be in theaters near me on wednesday. I've had a hard time finding info on the movie and seen no ads for it which is surprising since Robert Pattinson is in it. Is it limited release? Anyone know the story about this movie?

    • ANSWER:
      When this film started production, the goal was to be completed for a cinematic release on October 19 2011. Which is today. However, this date is always considered to be a loose deadline. But most often than not production difficulties will force this date will be pushed back for any number of reasons.

      It is also common for film-makers to hold back releasing a movie so that it can première at a film festival. Or maybe because it needs to be released within a certain date range in order to be included in a award process later that year.

      The only release's of this movie that I am aware of will be in Portugal on 23 February 2012.

      Also, Russian entertainment site SPLETNIK.RU is reporting that Bel Ami will be released in Russia in February 2012.

      Other than that, I do not know anything about this movie being released before this date or anywhere else in the world.

      Sorry to disappoint you, but I don't think that the worldwide release dates will be announced until it's closer to the date. I would guess that you won't hear anything about it until sometime in January next year.

      Hope this helps.

  48. QUESTION:
    Why is the movie "Zero Dark thirty" not playing ?
    Is something that the CIA did to keep it a secret or what?

    • ANSWER:
      Partisan political controversy surrounded the film even before shooting began.[13] Opponents of the Obama Administration charged that Zero Dark Thirty was scheduled for an October release just before the November presidential election, so that it would support the re-election of Barack Obama by reminding the public who gave the command to initiate the raid that killed bin Laden.[20][21] Sony has denied that politics was ever a factor in release scheduling, stating that the initial release date was selected because it was the best available spot for an action-thriller on a crowded lineup. The film's screenwriter has added, "the president is not depicted in the movie. He's just not in the movie."[22] Distributor Columbia Pictures, sensitive to critical perceptions, considered rescheduling the film release for as late as early 2013. A limited-release date was set for December 19, 2012, well after the election and rendering moot any alleged political conflict.[9][23][24][25][26] The nationwide release date was pushed back to January 11, 2013, moving it out of the crowded and competitive Christmas period and closer to the Oscars. After the film's limited-release, and particularly after the controversy surrounding the depiction of torture in the film, The New York Times columnist Frank Bruni concluded that the film is "a far, far cry from the rousing piece of pro-Obama propaganda that some conservatives feared it would be".

    • ANSWER:
      Question (Q): Are there any threats to the Earth in 2012? Many Internet websites say the world will end in December 2012.
      Answer (A): Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012.

      Q: What is the origin of the prediction that the world will end in 2012?
      A: The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012. Then these two fables were linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012 -- hence the predicted doomsday date of December 21, 2012.

      Q: Does the Mayan calendar end in December 2012?
      A: Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period but then -- just as your calendar begins again on January 1 -- another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.

      Q: Could a phenomena occur where planets align in a way that impacts Earth?
      A: There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades, Earth will not cross the galactic plane in 2012, and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible. Each December the Earth and sun align with the approximate center of the Milky Way Galaxy but that is an annual event of no consequence.

      "There apparently is a great deal of interest in celestial bodies, and their locations and trajectories at the end of the calendar year 2012. Now, I for one love a good book or movie as much as the next guy. But the stuff flying around through cyberspace, TV and the movies is not based on science. There is even a fake NASA news release out there..."
      - Don Yeomans, NASA senior research scientist Q: Is there a planet or brown dwarf called Nibiru or Planet X or Eris that is approaching the Earth and threatening our planet with widespread destruction?
      A: Nibiru and other stories about wayward planets are an Internet hoax. There is no factual basis for these claims. If Nibiru or Planet X were real and headed for an encounter with the Earth in 2012, astronomers would have been tracking it for at least the past decade, and it would be visible by now to the naked eye. Obviously, it does not exist. Eris is real, but it is a dwarf planet similar to Pluto that will remain in the outer solar system; the closest it can come to Earth is about 4 billion miles.

      Q: What is the polar shift theory? Is it true that the earth’s crust does a 180-degree rotation around the core in a matter of days if not hours?
      A: A reversal in the rotation of Earth is impossible. There are slow movements of the continents (for example Antarctica was near the equator hundreds of millions of years ago), but that is irrelevant to claims of reversal of the rotational poles. However, many of the disaster websites pull a bait-and-shift to fool people. They claim a relationship between the rotation and the magnetic polarity of Earth, which does change irregularly, with a magnetic reversal taking place every 400,000 years on average. As far as we know, such a magnetic reversal doesn’t cause any harm to life on Earth. A magnetic reversal is very unlikely to happen in the next few millennia, anyway.

      Q: Is the Earth in danger of being hit by a meteor in 2012?
      A: The Earth has always been subject to impacts by comets and asteroids, although big hits are very rare. The last big impact was 65 million years ago, and that led to the extinction of the dinosaurs. Today NASA astronomers are carrying out a survey called the Spaceguard Survey to find any large near-Earth asteroids long before they hit. We have already determined that there are no threatening asteroids as large as the one that killed the dinosaurs. All this work is done openly with the discoveries posted every day on the NASA NEO Program Office website, so you can see for yourself that nothing is predicted to hit in 2012.

      Addition information concerning 2012 is available on the Web, at:

      NASA Astrobiology Institute: "Nibiru and Doomsday 2012"
      Bad Astronomy: "The Planet X Saga: The Scientific Arguments in a Nutshell"
      Sky and Telescope Magazine: "2012: The Great Scare"

      Q: How do NASA scientists feel about claims of pending doomsday?
      A: For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, where is the science? Where is the evidence? There is none, and for all the fictional assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, we cannot change that simple fact. There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.

  50. QUESTION:
    Whats The Diffrence Between Full Metal Alchemist And Full Metal Alchemist:Brotherhood?
    I've Had Been Seeing Full Metal Alchemist Brothehood On Adult Swim And I Heard Theres Another Anime Thats Just Called Full Metal Alchemist Is It Like Another Season Or Something And They Have A Movie Coming Out January 2012 Called Full Metal Alchemist:The Sacred Star Of Millos And I Want To See The Whole Anime Series Before The Movie Comes Out Is It A Side Story Or Something....?

    • ANSWER:
      Brotherhood is a complete remake/reboot of the series, and the difference is that Brotherhood follows the manga closely throughout, while the first FMA series only follows the manga for a short time before going off in a completely different direction. At the time the first series was made, in 03/04, the manga was ongoing, so when the series caught up to it, there was nothing left to follow. Their solution was to make up a completely new story and continue the series with that. In 09, when the manga was finally coming to an end, Brotherhood was made with the intention of sticking close to the manga.

      Brotherhood starts very similarly to FMA, because FMA did follow the manga in the beginning. For a while, a lot of the same events happen in basically the same way. However, by around episode 15-16ish, there are very noticeable differences (there are some smaller differences even before that), and new characters are introduced. Not long after that, it really becomes a completely different series. There are tons of differences.

      Both are worth watching, in my opinion, but I did enjoy Brotherhood more.

      The upcoming movie is connected to Brotherhood, and although it was released after Brotherhood was finished, it's not a sequel. Chronologically, it takes place around episode 20, and it doesn't affect the series in any way.
