Darren Aranofsky(Black Swan) is no longer directing but James Mangold(3:10 to Yuma) is now singed on to take the helm. “There were a number of directors who wanted to do this because we have the best script yet, but his take was the strongest,” Jackman told MTV News speaking of Mangold during San Diego Comic-Con this summer. “He’s phenomenal, he’s going to really knock this one out of the park.” We’ll see Hugh Jackass.

Shula’s Steak Houses announced today it has deployed the first set of iPads featuring Hospitality Social’s new interactive menu and wine list application – Hospitality Pads. Hospitality Pads were launched at the 2011 National Restaurant Association show in Chicago a few months ago in May. Shula’s Steak House is the first national steak house chain to launch the iPad wine lists which revolutionizes the wine experience while dining. Shula’s decided on the national roll-out of Hospitality Pads after successfully testing it in its Naples, Florida location.
“This latest innovation reflects Shula’s commitment to providing the best possible dining experience to our guests,” said Dave Shula, president, Shula’s Steakhouses, LLLP. “It offers an elegant, engaging and easy way for our customers to choose the right wine reflecting their unique tastes that also complements their meal.”
Hospitality Social’s application caters to both the novice and the wine enthusiast. The application will guide customers through selecting a wine and it also recommends the best wine pairings with each entrée on the menu. It enables guests to make informed choices and select wines with confidence even when you don’t know shit about wine. Hospitality Pads feature tasting notes, pictures, and scores for wines on an iPad. You can select wines based on food pairings, flavor preferences, regions, scoring and other criteria. This is the first such application combining an interactive menu with wine list food pairings, social networking and a rewards network. It enables restaurant patrons to get in-depth wine information right at the dining table when they are about to make a wine choice and the Hospitality Social application will enable Shula customers to track wines they order by emailing them the name of the wine they enjoyed during their meal. This is cool shit and I am sure it will be making its way into more and more restaurants in the near future.

Naughty Dog Community Manager Arne Meyer says that Uncharted 3 is currently too big for a 50GB PS3 Blu Ray disc. “Uncharted 2 barely made it to 25GB, while Naughty Dog is going over 50GB this time, for Uncharted 3. But in the end we’ll be under 50. We’ll be one disc.” What this means of course is that there will now be compressed audio and video to make it fit on one disc as well as the obvious content being held back for DLC purposes.
