Notes from the Manager

We're so close last night, and it's my giveaway, anyway, so I decided to extend the deadline for the Kickstarter project's $10,000 Challenge 'til tonight/Friday at midnight — exactly four weeks (28 days) from the end of the fundraising period!
Currently, I'm already going to give away five sets of the Memento parody mini-posters and buttons — but if we raise just $180 more today, I'll make it ten prize packs — doubling everyone's chances of winning. (Note: my math is bad. That might not be accurate.)
UPDATE: Well, geez, that was fast. Thank you, Mr. Clark. :)
You can still get yourself eligible to win one of the TEN prize backs by pledging before midnight tonight. I will notify the winners over the weekend. The winners have been notified!
A few people have asked me when their cards will be charged, so I wanted to reiterate this here: Your cards will be charged on December 12th at 1AM Eastern or shortly thereafter, when the funding period has ended.
Since we've got 28 days left to raise money (I cannot end it early), I may as well take advantage of that time, so I'm not eating ramen for two months straight!

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.
