Notes from the Manager
There will be three updates this week — and, like I did on Monday, you can read Friday's comic early by voting at TopWebComics. So vote! Please!
By the way, if you're going to see Toy Story 3 this weekend, you can pre-order tickets via Fandango without a service fee when you use a Visa card to buy your tickets.. (Disclosure: I am a Fandango affiliate, and I will make a whopping 10¢ from each ticket you purchase via this link, or the one in the right sidebar on the homepage.)
I saw Toy Story 3 at an advanced screening on Monday night, and it was fantastic — a really fun adventure that beautifully ends(?) the series. The use of 3D is really good, but subtle enough that I don't think you'll be missing much if you forego the surcharge. And the short before it, "Night and Day," is one of Pixar's best.
I still think How to Train Your Dragon will get the Best Animated Feature Oscar this year, though. ;)

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?
The film opens July 25, 2014.
Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
