Watch: This International ‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Reveals A Surprising Superhero Cameo

"I ruined the moment, didn't I?"
Who dat?

We are just under 2 weeks away from the release of Ant-Man in theaters and the promo stuff just keeps on coming. Today we get to see an international trailer for Ant-Man that was produced for the Spanish-speaking market and as you can see above, this new trailer reveals that a Marvel Cinematic Universe superhero will be making an appearance in the movie. Thus far, there has been no indication that this superhero (or any other MCU hero) might make a cameo in the movie but thanks to this new trailer, now we know. If THIS particular hero makes a cameo, it’s possible that others may as well. HMMM. This trailer is only spoilery in the revelation of this particular cameo but it mostly features footage we’ve already seen. I am so ready to see this movie, I can’t even tell you! AHHH! July 17.

This is going to be incredible.

As I sit her at my computer, listening to Jay Z and pondering the meaning of life, love, and all those drinks I had last night, one profound truth has occurred to me: Life was better with Empire. There’s been a sort of lull over the past few months and I realize now that it’s partly due to a severe lack of Empire, and I’m holding on to any news about Season Two and its impending arrival. If you don’t mind a little casting SPOILER, click inside for more!

WAAAAY back in 2009, we first heard that Natalie Portman was attached to the big screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (the classic novel turned sci-fi pulp story from the author of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunterwhich was also adapted into a movie).

Today, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly magazine, we get our first look at the big screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which will hit theaters in February of next year.

The ‘Top Gun’ Sequel Will Have ‘An Amazing Role’ For Tom Cruise

"There is no Top Gun without Maverick"

Way back in 2010, we first learned that plans were in the works for a sequel film to the 1986 film Top Gun. In December of 2011, Top Gun star Tom Cruise voiced not only his support for a sequel to Top Gun but his interest in reprising his role as Lieutenant Pete Maverick Mitchell. In April of 2012, Paramount Studios confirmed that Top Gun 2 was coming … but then, nothing. In the wake of director Tony Scott‘s suicide in August of that year, all talk of Top Gun 2 went away and it was believed that the sequel would never get made … until now. David Ellison (CEO of Skydance Productions) is talking about the Top Gun sequel again, announcing that the film has a new screenwriter … and revealing that “an amazing role” is being written for Cruise‘s Maverick character because, as Ellison makes clear, “there is no Top Gun without Maverick“.

Tyrese Appears To Be Hinting That He May Play Green Lantern In A New Movie

"Shit just got real"

In the wake of rumors that the new Green Lantern movie might focus on both Hal Jordon and Jon Stewart (both DC Comics characters that have been the Green Lantern), we learn today that model/actor Tyrese Gibson has been suggesting and hinting hardcore that he might be playing the role of Green Lantern / Jon Stewart in a new film (I guess those Denzel Washington rumors are dunzo). Tyrese posted a photo on his official Instagram profile that caught people’s attention and when he was asked about his Green Lantern hints, his coy answers seem to fuel the rumor flames that he will don the green costume as the next Green Lantern on the big screen. Click below to see his photo, read his teasing comments and speculate along with me, won’t you? More »

‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Star Charisma Carpenter Will Play Ariana Grande’s Mother On ‘Scream Queens’

Cordelia Chase grows up

Last month we got our first look at Ryan Murphy‘s new Fox TV series Scream Queens, which looks like a mix between the Scream movie and the Pretty Little Liars TV series, debuting on the network this fall. Today we learn that former Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel actress Charisma Carpenter has been added to the cast in the role of Ariana Grande‘s character’s mother. As a longtime BtVS fan, I am LOVING that Charisma is finding new work on network television. Altho it will be a bit strange for some (me included) to see the former Cordelia Chase as the mother of a grown young woman, I have to admit … her casting does make the prospect of watching Scream Queens much more enticing.
