Back in January, FX released a painfully unsatisfying teaser video for the forthcoming TV series adaption of the Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan book trilogy The Strain. Today, we get our first look at the principal characters in the series as the promo push for the show’s debut begins to amp up. The Strain is a vampire story but one that I found extremely entertaining and wholly terrifying … at least, that’s what I felt while reading the books. I’m hopeful that the TV series will prove just as good. Up until now, the characters in The Strain were merely images in my mind … now that we see these promo photos from the TV series, we can put faces to the names. Check out the promo photos below.

'The Youngblood Chronicles' Continue
Fall Out Boy is releasing a music video for each of the 11 songs featured on their album Save Rock And Roll. When taken in sum, the 11 videos will make up the larger narrative of something the band is calling The Youngblood Chronicles. FOB have just released the 9th video of the series for their song Rat A Tat. As you can see in the embed above, Courtney Love stars in the video as a totalitarian dictator bent on the destruction of the forces of Fall Out Boy … or something like that. Honestly, I like seeing this side of C. Love. The woman has really settled down in the past year or so … dare I say she’s now relatively normal? With a new web series online now, a memoir reportedly on the way and now guest appearances like this, Courtney Love seems to have finally gotten her house in order. I’m not crazy about this FOB song but I really dig the video. Do you?
"... you're looking at a world war"
On Super Bowl Sunday, Fox unleashed an EXPLOSIVE teaser video for the forthcoming new season of 24: Live Another Day, set to debut in early May. Today we get to feast our eyes on a just-released new promo video that gives us a taste of what’s to come, plotwise, from the new season of 24. President James Heller (William Devane) is threatened with assassination in London and long wolf/ex-CTU agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) takes it upon himself to spring into action to protect the president — while all the president’s men view Jack as a threat. Yep, sounds about right for a typical day in the life of our beloved Jack Bauer. This is a great new promo. We are less than 2 months away from the premiere of 24: Live Another Day, are you pumped yet? The new season of 24 premieres on May 5.

What is going on here?
The long-running animated series The Simpsons is known for its clever and sometimes odd couch gags which open each episode of the show. Today we get to check out the couch gag that will air on this weekend’s ep of the show. French film director Sylvain Chomet (The Triplets of Belleville) is the man responsible for this SUPER FRENCH couch gag that you have to see to believe. It’s odd, yes, but it’s also kinda beautiful as well. Enjoy.

The long awaited sequel cometh
Back in 2005, the film Sin City changed the way that comic books (ahem, graphic novels) were adapted for the big screen. Later this year, the long awaited sequel Sin City: A Dame To Kill For will make its debut in theaters. Back when the original film was released, I was crazy impressed by what I was seeing on the big screen. The inventive film direction really made the movie look like an actual graphic novel come to life. This first trailer for Sin City 2 looks impressive but, then again, it looks very much like the 8 year old original film. I am impressed with the cast (Josh Brolin? Joseph Gordon-Levitt? Eva Green? HELLZ YES!) and I still like the look of the movie incarnation of Sin City but I think I was hoping for … I dunno, something more. Granted, this is just a first movie trailer so it’s probably too early to make a determination about how the movie will turn out. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For opens on August 22. Thus far, I am intrigued. I’d like to see more, tho, wouldn’t you?
