'Life Is Very Long'
Way back in October we heard about the film adaptation of August: Osage County, and today we get our first look. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play (and Tony Award-winning production), the movie stars Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Chris Cooper, Ewan McGregor, Sam Shepard, Abigail Breslin, Juliette Lewis, Benedict Cumberbatch, and yeah. Everyone who is awesome, everywhere, lol. I haven’t read the play yet, but I understand the trailer gives off a slightly more playful feeling than the original, which is a heavily dark comedy. Still, I’m excited for this one. Peep the video for more!
"The fate of your planet rests in your hands"
We are less than a month away from the release of Superman: Man of Steel but today we get one last movie trailer to check out before the film hits theaters on June 14. As you may recall, we’ve previously seen sweeping, emotional trailers for Man of Steel but the just-released newest trailer is all action. Check out the embed above and get a taste for just how action-packed Man of Steel will be. We have mere weeks left to go before Superman flies into movie theaters … are you ready? Cuz after watching this trailer (a few times) I am SO damn ready.
'Kevin Keller #10' is Out in August
Back in 2010 we learned that the famously wholesome Archie Comics was introducing a gay character named Kevin Keller. In 2011 we learned that Kevin Keller was getting his own spin-off comic book series. In 2012 we (kinda sorta) got to see Kevin get married to his boyfriend Dr. Clay Walker (in a future dream sequence). Today we learn that 2013 will bring Kevin Keller the first same-sex kiss to be featured in the world of Archie Comics, yay! Click below to get a sneak peek of Kevin‘s same-sex smooch as featured in an upcoming issue of Kevin Keller. More »
More and Faster
Back in March we got our first look at the first official trailer for The Wolverine and today we get to see official trailer #2. As you can see in this new trailer via the embed above, Wolverine is reunited with one of his old X-Men compatriots … a very special compatriot, actually. I’m not always very excited about stand alone movies like this that focus on one character (outside of the rest of the films that feature more than one member of X-Men) but I like what I see from this movie so far. The Wolverine opens in theaters on July 26 … and I think I’ll be there.

The Return Of Mystique
Over the last few months we’ve been hearing news here and there about the upcoming X-Men sequel, Days of Future Past. Halle Berry is reprising her role as Storm (to the disappointment of many, many people), and Hugh Jackman will be returning as Wolverine, along with Nicholas Hoult who played the young Beast in X-Men: First Class. Today director Bryan Singer tweeted the first look at Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence rocking the blue Mystique costume, as she’ll also be reprising her role in the upcoming movie.

"We don’t believe in defeat / that’s why we’re back for a threepeat"
Earlier this month we got our first listen of Jennifer Lopez‘s new single Live It Up, which features her BFF Pitbull on guest rap vocals and today we get to see the just-released music video for the track. Sigh. Jenny from the Block really tries to look cool in this video but most of the time I just keep thinking, Damn girl … stop trying so hard. The song is still pretty meh. for me but the video is OK, I guess. I imagine it will do well on video screens at danceclubs when this song, invariably, will be played for the next few months. Give it a look, see what you think. Does Jennifer Lopez still have what it takes deliver with these kinds of music videos anymore? You be the judge.
"You are lost"
Back in April, Showtime released a video trailer for the upcoming 8th and final season of Dexter but today we get to see the show’s first official full length trailer. I’m not sure why the distinction but I’m happy for this release … because as you can see in the embed above, it looks like a whole lotta drama is headed our way in the coming season. This new 3 minute trailer gives us a very good feel for what to expect when the final season of Dexter debuts next month. Check out the trailer above and get excited, we are mere weeks from the start of a whole new season of Dexter … for one last time.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet Is Back At It!
EEEEeeeekkkk! Jean-Pierre Jeunet (acclaimed director of Amélie and A Very Long Engagement) has completed his next film and I am CrAaaazy-psyched about it… even though my girl Audrey Tautou is not in it, lol. The Young & Prodigious Spivet is an English-language film based on Reif Larsen‘s The Selected Works Of T.S. Spivet; it follows the story of a young inventor who leaves home when he’s invited to the Smithsonian. This first trailer is a little cutesy for me (which is a critique that some folks gave Amélie), but I’m still excited to see it in theatres. This will also be Jeunet‘s first 3D film, and it’s starring Callum Keith Rennie, Helena Bonham-Carter, Kathy Bates, Judy Davis, and Dominique Pinon. Peep the video for more!
Last week we learned that EPIX is planning to air Madonna‘s MDNA World Tour show on their network next month and today we get our first look at the first video teaser for the broadcast. The clip is short but sweet. If you saw the show, you’ll recognize some of the best parts of the show … if you haven’t seen the show, you’re gonna wanna tune in to EPIX on June 22. Maddy‘s MDNA show was pretty damn good, I’m actually looking forward to watching it all over again :D
