Rumor Roundup: Star-Lord Is Michael Knight?!

A shameless reason to publish a shirtless selfie of Chris Pratt?!

When the Internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

Chris Pratt Topless
  • Is Chris Pratt's Next Role in a Knight Rider Reboot?
    It's like he has a checklist of films to make based on other mediums, or something. Movie based on toy: Check (The LEGO Movie). Movie based on comic book: Check (Guardians Of The Galaxy). Movie based on other movie: Check (Jurassic World). Movie based on TV show: Knight Rider? Can't wait to see what's next! Movie based on food: Parmesan: The Movie?! [Cinema Blend]

  • Pay $60 to Boost Your World of Warcraft Avatar to Level 90?
    So, a flat $60 versus spending a week of your life doing tiresome grinding to get there? WORTH IT. (Though, without the tiresome level-grinding, what else is there to do in WoW?! Isn't that like paying to NOT play the game?) [Gameranx]

Apple Car
  • Is Apple Going to Buy Tesla Motors?
    The electric cars will now be marketed as "the world's most expensive iPhone docks." [Los Angeles Times]

  • Is the Samsung Galaxy S5 Going to be Dust- and Water-Proof?
    Perfect for ... um ... underwater mummies? Because of the water ... and they're old and dusty. (If you have a better quip for this news item, please don't put it in the comments below, because I don't want my bosses thinking anyone else can do this better than I can.) [Digital Trends]

Xbox One Remote
  • Is the Xbox One Media Remote Coming Soon?
    Apparently, there's a chance that the channel up and down buttons will only work in the U.S! Probably because most other countries only have, like, two channels — and one of them is government propaganda, or something. [Ubergizmo]

  • Is HTC's New Flagship Phone Going to be Called "The All New One"?
    Let that sink in! Imagine what'll happen in another year's time: "Yeah, I own the All New One ... no, not the one that just came out, the previous generation. Yeah, the All New One. No, it's a refurb. I don't see what the problem is." Phandroid]
