Last Friday we got our first look at a batch of new promo images for the forthcoming 7th and final season of the UK series Skins. In that post, I shared the news that new information about the season would be released today … lo and behold, today we get to check out the first trailer for the upcoming new season of Skins. At this point, we still don’t yet know when the 7th season of Skins will be released (all we’re told at this point is “coming soon”) but the embed above gives us a look at Cook, Effy and Cassie as they will be portrayed in the upcoming season. It looks like they’ve all done some growing. Check out the trailer and get excited, Skins will be back on TV “soon”.

LOTS of New Footage, Cast & Crew Interviews and MORE!
Wow. The folks working on the promo for Superman: Man of Steel have released a 13-minute long video featurette that showcases LOTS of new footage from the film (much of it previously unseen in any other promo material) and really interesting interviews with the cast and crew. If you are looking for something to really get you excited for the release of Man of Steel on June 14, then look no further. It may be difficult to watch a 13 minute video while at work or school but I urge you to save the link and watch it at some point. This featurette gives us the best overview of what to expect when Superman returns to theaters this month. I think the thing that surprised me most was learning that many of the scenes in this blockbuster movie were filmed using a single camera! Also, I’m shocked at how much director Zach Snyder sounds and kinda looks like actor Mark Ruffalo. This video is really damn interesting, I think all y’all will love watching it as much as I did.
Additionally, there is an easter egg hidden in Man of Steel that looks like a clue to a possible Justice League movie later on down the line. If you’d like to learn more about it from Zack Snyder himself, please click below. More »
A few weeks ago the audio of Britney Spears‘s new single Ooh La La leaked its way to the Internets well ahead of its scheduled release date of June 25. Today, still a few weeks away from the single release, we get our first look at the cover art for the single. Walmart will be among the retailers that will have Ooh La La for sale and they have updated their official website with the single cover art. Unfortunately, our dear Britney does not appear on the cover art but considering the single is meant for an animated film soundtrack, I guess that’s to be expected. Check out the cover art below.

"How do I become a scarer?"
We are just weeks away from the theatrical release of the new Disney Pixar animated prequel film Monsters University and today we get to check out the final trailer from the film’s promo campaign. I have been anxiously awaiting the release of this movie for MONTHS now and we are now so close to finally being able to see it. The the final trailer, which you can watch in full above, is one of the best trailers that has been released so I think you’ll enjoy it. I think there is so much potential for fun in this movie, I can’t WAIT to see what the folks at Pixar came up with. Monsters University opens on July 21, see you there?

Pure - Fire - Rise
Back in March we learned that the brilliant UK TV series Skins will return for one more final season and that season will focus on three stories that center on three returning characters from the series. Skins Pure will focus on Cassie (from seasons 1-2, played by Hannah Murray), Skins Fire will focus on Effy (from seasons 1-4, played by Kaya Scodelario) and Skins Rise will focus on Cook (from seasons 3-4, played by Jack O’Connell). Today we get to see newly released promo images from the forthcoming 7th season of Skins that each feature the main character from the three stories that will make up the final season. Yeah, that’s a lot to keep track of, ain’t it? More »

'Kill'ing me Loudly
Back in May of 2012 we learned that Sofia Vergara would be starring in the sequel film Machete Kills, then in July we learned that Lady Gaga had been added to the cast. This past January we learned that the film would be released this coming September and just last week we learned that Charlie Sheen is going by his birth name Carlos Estévez in Machete Kills. At long last, the first trailer released for the film is out. Check it out above, see if it appeals to you. I enjoyed the first Machete movie, I’ll prolly enjoy this one, too.

Comic books have been making great strides in showcasing same-sex characters in recent years … whether it’s same-sex marriage, coming out stories or something as simple as a same-sex kiss, the comic book world has really been doing much for gay visibility. And now … cartoons are getting in on the action. This summer, the cartoon network The Hub will premiere an animated cartoon that features a male character that turns into a female superhero … all he has to do is utter the phrase, You go girl and POOF! He becomes a female superhero named SheZow. Amazing. Keep in mind, it doesn’t appear that this will be a gay ‘toon, but it will deffo be the first cartoon to feature a cross-dressing superhero.

"Tonight there's gonna be a whole lotta smoke in the air"
Snoop Lion, the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg (real name Cordozar Calvin Broadus), has released a new music video for his haunting reggae single Ashtrays and Heartbreaks. Surprisingly, at least to me, Snoop enlisted the aid of Ms. Miley Cyrus to provide vocals on the track and appear in the video, which you can watch in full above. As you can hear, the song is a lament about friends/family who have tragically died so, OF COURSE Snoop would ask Miley to sing on the track. Yeah, I don’t understand either but these collabos do tend to get a lot of attention (case in point: this post) so … enjoy?
"You're beautiful, good Lord, you're f*ckin' beautiful'
Earlier this month we got our first look at the official music video for Mariah Carey‘s new single with crooner Miguel titled Beautiful. That video was censored so that the explicit cuss words were edited out of the song. Today, Mimi releases the semi-NSFW explicit version of the music video. The inclusion of the swear words is not the only thing different about this video, the whole thing is pretty different (no motorcycle, more classic car in the barn). Personally, I like this music video best … explicit language notwithstanding. Check it out, see what you think.
