Your Morning Linc: Muse at MSG, Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer, Iron Man 3 Clip, Jamie Foxx as Electro

Good morning! As I was beginning to write this post I received an e-mail from Titan Magazines, publishers of the Star Wars Insider (to which I have been a subscriber since Issue #37 in 1999). Apparently, thanks to my participation in a survey a month or so ago, I've won a whole bunch of books and an action figure! Thanks, Insider!

Well, that was a great way to start the day! And now onto the news!

1. Muse at Madison Square Garden

Speaking of being extremely lucky, I was fortunate enough to go with a few friends last night to see the British alt-rock  band Muse at Madison Square Garden. I've been a fan of theirs for a while now, and really love their style of music. This tour, for their newest album The 2nd Law, was a feast for the eyes, ears, and soul. Imagine a giant ziggurat descending from the sky, changing shape and color, and syncing up with phenomenal music. That was this concert! Singer Matt Bellamy, drummer Dominic Howard, and bassist Christopher Wolstenholme were in rare form...or not so rare, as Muse puts on fantastic shows on a regular basis. New songs like "Madness" and "Supremacy" were great to see live, and classics like "Knights of Cydonia", "Plug-In Baby" ,"Hysteria", "Resistance", and others got the crowd jumping and singing like nothing else. Visually stunning, audibly incredible, and performed with such passion and love for the fans, Muse's The 2nd Law Tour cannot and should not be missed! Check out some pictures below:

Hat tip to opening act Biffy Clyro who were actually pretty good.

2. Star Trek Into Darkness Trailer: Sherlock's Gone Bad

The latest trailer for Star Trek: Into Darkenss is out and Now I'm not normally a fan of the Trek, but J.J. Abrams has done such a masterful job with the series it's hard not to appreciate it. While we still don't know who Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is playing (rumors are it's a certain name worth shouting angrily), he certainly is at his most villainous in this movie. Check out the trailer below, and watch for around the 1:13 mark for a serious "holy crap!" moment:


3. Iron Man 3 Clip at MTV Movie Awards

And while we're talking trailers, let's take a look an exclusive clip of Iron Man 3 that was shown at this year's MTV Movie Awards. Nothing to say but it looks like Tony is in a biiiit of a pickle:

4. Jamie Foxx: Electro Unchained

And rounding out the news, take a look at the first pictures of Jaime Foxx as Electro in The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

And that's it for now! Hope you continue to have a great day!
