Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: [REC]3 poster, new trailer for Disney’s Brave, a dancing TARDIS, Avengers eye makeup designs, the CAT-AT cat condo based on the AT-ATs from The Empire Strikes Back, plus some Bits Of Doom [and a special Avengers birthday!].
A new poster has been released for the upcoming horror sequel [REC]3. The movie follows a couple on their wedding day, which is going very well until some of the guests start getting sick. Before long the couple finds themselves in the middle of a real-life nightmare…and even worse, separated from each other. You can follow the movie at its Facebook page, and check it out on video on demand services starting August 3, and in select theaters on September 7.
Brave – Trailer
Another new trailer has been released for Disney*Pixar’s yearly release, Brave. The trailer comes courtesy of Apple, and can be seen below. Brave will hit theaters on June 22nd.

Geeks Of Doom’s Dave3 celebrated a birthday this weekend, so in honor of his most anticipated movie of the year — Marvel’s The Avengers, in theaters in just a few days — we gave him an Avengers-themed birthday party, complete with character masks, party favors, and an awesome Avengers pinata! Dave3 proudly wore his Junior Avengers Guest-Of-Honor pin with pride and bashed his candy-filled pinata with glee! And no, as hard as it is to believe, he did not in fact turn 10 – only 10 at heart.
