Yep, this looks NOTHING like 'Jem and the Holograms'
Yesterday we got to see a bunch of promo photos from the upcoming live-action movie adaptation of the 1980′s cartoon Jem and the Holograms and, as you should be well aware, the movie that is coming bares no resemblance at all to the original source material … except for the movie title and the character names. Gone is pretty much everything about the original cartoon that made it so special. Today, we get to see the just-released movie trailer and movie poster for this new incarnation of Jem that makes explicitly clear — this is really not a Jem and the Holograms movie. More »
Altho I didn’t really love the movie overall, there were a few glimmers of greatness that made the movie worth seeing and among them is the big finale performance by the Barden Bellas at the end of the movie. For promo purposes, video of the finale performance has been released ahead of the film’s theatrical release this weekend … which you can watch above. This performance is a mash-up of Run The World (Girls) by Beyoncé and We Belong by Pat Benatar — as seen above — along with Where Them Girls At by David Guetta and Timber by Kesha (which aren’t included in this clip). This performance in the movie is great … I just wish there was more of this kind of thing to enjoy in Pitch Perfect 2.
"Sort of an adult 'Muppet Show'"
ABC has announced the new shows they have selected to air during their upcoming TV season and among the new shows of the 2015-2016 TV season is a new incarnation of The Muppet Show. Titled simply, The Muppets., the beloved cast of Muppet characters will return to primetime TV later this year … and you can watch the first trailer for The Muppets. in the embed above. As you can see, this new Muppet show will be geared towards adults and it looks kinda like a Muppet version of Modern Family. Have a look, see what you think. Are you excited to see that The Muppets are coming back to TV?

Meet Knockout and Dilemma
Taylor Swift has thus far released 9 different character posters, including one for herself, for the music video for her new single Bad Blood (which will premiere during the Billboard Music Awards this coming Sunday night).

Today we get to see two more character posters and learn that supermodel Karlie Kloss and Empire actress Seraya McNeill have also been added to the cast … which continues to grow day by day. More »
The saga continues
February gave us the first teaser video for the forthcoming reboot of the NBC series Heroes Reborn and with March, came the confirmation that actor Masi Oki will reprise his role as Hiro on the show. Today we get to see a few promo photos from Heroes Reborn, which was officially unveiled in NYC during the NBC upfronts presentation that took place earlier today. I understand the first official trailer for Heroes Reborn was screened during upfronts today but it has yet to be released online. BUT, we still have the promo photos to check out … which you can see along with a new press release below. More »

"It tells its own story"
Back in March we got to see a painfully too short promo video for the forthcoming Walking Dead spin-off limited series Fear the Walking Dead and today we get another look at the new show. AMC has released a behind the scenes promo featurette that takes us on the Fear set and enlightens us a bit as what to expect when this spin-off series debuts later this year. This new series will take us back in time, to when the zombie outbreak first exploded in the US (in LA, specifically), to a time when shizz was hitting the fan exponentially (as opposed to the more settled, less frantic events that we’ve seen in the most recent seasons of The Walking Dead). Again, this promo video is far too short to satisfy my need for MORE zombie goodness but it’s a nice little treat to nosh on while we await the premiere of Fear the Walking Dead this year. Please enjoy.
Coming to theaters in October
Back in February we got to see the first promo image released from the forthcoming live-action movie Jem and the Holograms LOOSELY based on the cartoon of the same name from the ’80s. As you may recall, along with the release of that first promo image came the official plot description of the movie … which is worrisome because, as far as can be ascertained, the movie WILL NOT feature very integral parts of the original story … like the hologram computer Synergy or the very necessary rival band the Misfits … there will be NO ACTUAL HOLOGRAMS? What?! Even still … the movie is coming out way. Today we learn, with the release of a new batch of Jem movie promo photos, that this live-action movie will open in theaters on October 23. Click through the gallery presented here to see what this new live-action version of Jem and the Holograms will look like and click below to learn more about this, IMHO, terribly-sounding movie.

THIS LOOKS SO GOOOD!!!
Last week we got to see a new trailer and a batch of promo photos for the forthcoming season of Hannibal, premiering on NBC this June. Today we get to see a bonus TV trailer for Hannibal season 3 which comes from a Korean TV network called AXN. As you can see above, this Korean trailer for Hannibal looks VERY exciting. I’m not sure if this is what we should expect when Hannibal returns next month but I like the way Koreans promote American TV shows. I am so excited, Hannibal season 3 returns (here in the US) on June 4.

Reset the Future
Last month we saw the latest trailer for Terminator: Genisys that reveals a major, game-changing plot twist about the movie — that future John Connor travels back in time as a Terminator! Today, we get to see the first batch of character posters for Genisys that further reiterate this plot-twist by featuring Connor as a Terminator. Click through the gallery to see all of the character posters and see if they inspire you to see Terminator: Genisys when it opens in theaters on July 1.

... with an all-Black cast
John Candy and Macauley Culkin scored a HUGE hit with their 1989 feature film comedy Uncle Buck. This coming TV season, actor Mike Epps will lead an ABC sitcom that will turn Uncle Buck into a weekly TV series with an all-Black cast. Part of me loves that Uncle Buck is being rebooted with an all-Black cast but another, larger part of me is afraid that a TV version of the brilliant film will fail … miserably. That being said, Mike Epps is a funny guy so … maybe this will work? More »
