"I'm still alive"
Back in June we got our first look at the first movie trailer for Ridley Scott‘s new film, The Martian, which stars Matt Damon as a NASA astronaut stranded on Mars after a space mission goes awry. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film which hits theaters in November. Based on the novel by Andy Weir, The Martian promises high drama in the most extreme circumstances. As you may recall, the film’s first trailer had a very tense, dramatic feel to it. This second trailer feels a bit more light-hearted, thanks to the inclusion of music. I am very much looking forward to the release of this movie. The Martian opens in theaters on November 25.

The glorious return of Chvrches
Last month we learned officially that the electronic/synth band Chvrches is releasing their sophomore album Every Open Eye in September and we’ve, thus far, gotten to hear two songs from the album — Leave A Trace and Never Ending Circles (both EXCELLENT songs, I have to say). Today we get to see the just-released, official music video for the first single from the new album and as you can see in the embed above, Chvrches have revealed a beautifully simple visual representation for Leave A Trace. I’m a big fan of the Chvrches visual aesthetic which compliments their music very well. Their new album Every Open Eye will be released on September 25 and I’ll just be watching and listening to Leave A Trace non-stop on repeat until that glorious day.

Available exclusively at D23
The D23 Expo is the place to be this weekend to get all of the latest information about Disney‘s upcoming projects, most notably the forthcoming Star Wars sequel film The Force Awakens. The convention is being used to debut new information and promo items from many of Disney‘s properties and is the place where the first poster for The Force Awakens is being released. The main poster artwork for Episode VII hasn’t yet been released but you can see below the first poster, a D23 exclusive for attendees, that has been issued for The Force Awakens. The poster features some good guys, the probably bad guy and one of the Star Wars originals — have a look. More »
Last month we got to see promo stills from the Hannibal season 3 episode titled The Great Red Dragon a week before the episode aired on NBC. Today we get to see the promo stills from the 13th and final episode of Hannibal season 3 which, sadly, has become the series finale episode. The episode titled The Wrath of the Lamb, as you can see in the gallery presented here, will give us our first look at Mads Mikkelsen‘s Dr. Hannibal Lecter wearing his infamous mask. The title is obviously a nod to the most famous Hannibal Lecter story of all time, The Silence of the Lambs, so I think we can guess where the show would have headed if it was able to make it to season 4. Because the series is now finally dead, we may never know where the series was headed but hope is still alive that a feature film starring this cast will come somewhere down the line. Once Hannibal ends its TV run at the end of this month, we will have to imagine how The Wrath of the Lamb eventually connects with The Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal will end on August 29.

Last weekend, we got to hear Lana Del Rey‘s new song High By The Beach, the second from her upcoming new album Honeymoon, which leaked online a couple of days before it was officially released. Today we get to see LDR‘s official music video for the song which has just been unleashed upon the world. As you can see in the embed above, Lana is being harangued by an ambitious paparazzi photographer who won’t go away until Lana makes him go away. The video is pretty straightforward but it but be watched from beginning to end in full. I love this song, I dig the video and I want to hear the rest of LDR‘s Honeymoon immediately. Please enjoy.
The first sighting of Black Panther ever in a Marvel movie
Back in October of last year, we got our first look at what the Marvel Comics superhero character Black Panther will look like when he makes his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe when the first concept promo image of the character was released during the unveiling event of the next batch of Marvel Studios movies. Today we get our first look at Black Panther as he will actually appear in his first Marvel Studios movies, thanks to set photos snapped of actor Chadwick Boseman in costume as Black Panther / T’Challa on the set of Captain America: Civil War (currently filming in Berlin, Germany). Click below to get your first look at Black Panther in action in his first MCU movie and learn some deets about the stunt scene Boseman filmed for the cameras. More »
"The Reign of Beyoncé"
Beyoncé, the queen herself, is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Vogue magazine … and not just any issue of Vogue but the hallowed September Issue of the world’s fashion Bible. “There is only one September Issue, and there is only one Beyoncé. Moving, morphing, leading, flaunting: such is the power of Beyoncé that just one letter tells us who she is. Margo Jefferson, pulitzer-prize winning cultural critic, explores what it takes to run the world.” Bey‘s cover story feature has yet to be released online but the first images from her spread have been released for our viewing pleasure. Photographed by Mario Testino, Beyoncé commands the cover of Vogue this month. Click below to see Beyoncé‘s cover photo, as well as a few photos from the accompanying photospread, and read a tiny preview of the forthcoming cover story feature. More »
A damn fine first promo photo
After the public negotiations drama that erupted earlier this year over whether or not director David Lynch would return to helm the much-anticipated Twin Peaks limited sequel series on Showtime, we get our first bit of new information which reminds us that the project is still headed our way. Showtime updated their official Facebook profile with a first promo image for the new Twin Peaks series that brilliantly and mysteriously promotes the show’s return in a subtle and fitting way. Everyone knows that you have to go to Twin Peaks to get a “damn fine cup of coffee” so it makes sense that the first promo image for the sequel series is cleverly coffee-related. More »

The second song from their new album 'Every Open Eye'
Last month we learned that the band Chvrches is readying the release of their sophomore album Every Open Eye, due out in September, and we got our first listen of the first song from the album … a track titled Leave A Trace. Today we get to hear the second song from their new album and it is as gloriously perfect as the song we heard last month. The lyric video for Never Ending Circles is embedded above for your listening pleasure and as you can hear, it is so perfectly Chvrches, I can’t even. The music, the lyrics, Lauren‘s voice … perfect, perfect, perfect. This is the music I want to hear from Chvrches and I’m so glad they are giving us what we want. I know I am going to be obsessed with Every Open Eye when it is released. Until then, I’ll just gush and fawn over Never Ending Circles. Ugh, it is so good. Please enjoy.
"Get ready for worlds to collide"
The season finale of the debut season of The Flash last spring teased the fact that the forthcoming second season of the show on The CW will introduce Earth-Two and DC Comics characters from alternate timelines … including the original, golden age version of The Flash — Jay Garrick. Today we get our first look at what The Flash / Jay Garrick will look like when he appears alongside The Flash / Barry Allen in the new season of The Flash. A promo image that contrasts a comic book cover that features both versions of The Flash with the characters as they will be seen on the show has been released and, as you can see below, it gives us our first look at the superhero speedsters in action. Have a look. More »
