The Devil may be in the details
Way back in October of 2012 we got our first look at actor Daniel Radcliffe in character in the upcoming new movie Horns, based on the 2010 novel of the same name by author Joe Hill (son of Stephen King). Today we get to see DanRad in action in Horns in the just-leaked first trailer for the movie. Horns tells the tale of a young man who wakes up one day with horns growing out of his head and the fallout that he experiences when the public assumes he is guilty of murder. It’s a compelling, interesting and novel story. I know we are supposed to be disconcerted by the sight of Daniel with massive horns growing out of his skull but I’m more weirded out by the fact that he is speaking with an American accent in this trailer. Creepy. Click the embed above to see the trailer then click below to see the first official movie poster for Horns. More »

"When did he stop treating you like a princess?"
An artist named Saint Hoax has created a series of posters titled Happy Never After that feature Disney Princesses to call attention to domestic violence. By using characters that are beloved by all (and recognized by very young girls), the intent is to encourage victims of abuse to come forward and report the crimes to authorities. Says Saint Hoax,
An awareness campaign targeting any girl / woman who has been subject to domestic violence. The aim of the poster series is to encourage victims to report their cases in order for the authorities to prevent it from happening again.
I must admit that I was really jarred the first time I saw these images, which is the point. They make powerful statements and, hopefully, they might encourage victims to come forward. I have a feeling not everyone will like this campaign but I’m impressed. What do you think of this Happy Never After campaign?

Art by Maria Bayley
So, pretty much everyone kinda loves those cute and adorable Disney Princesses and most people also love the hit Netflix series Orange is the new Black … so how amazing is it that a clever artist decided to mash-up some of our favorite Disney Princesses (plus one Disney Prince and one Disney Villain) with the characters of Orange is the new Black for a fun collection of posters. An artist named Maria Bayley came up with the brilliant idea to use Arial, Snow White, Rapunzel, etc. and mash them up with Piper, Taystee, Alex, etc. for this set of Disney/OITNB posters. I love them all! I think you will, too. Check ‘em out!
“The Past Can’t Be Washed Away”
Back in April we learned that the 4th and final season of The Killing (formerly on AMC) will premiere this August on Netflix when the season’s first teaser trailer was released. Today we get to check out the just released first poster for The Killing season 4. As you can see below, Sarah Linden (played by Mireille Enos) is front and center in this new poster with the tagline that reads, The Past Can’t Be Washed Away. AHHH! After I binge-watched the entire series a few months ago, I became a rabid fan of the show. Check out the poster and get excited with me! The Killing season 4 will be released one month from today!

The TV Guide
Yesterday was a chiiiiiiiiiiiill day for me here at home. So much so that I only left the house once to run a quick errand. I managed to get some things done around the house but for the most part, I did pretty much nothing at all … except watch movies. Because I don’t have any TV shows to binge-watch right now and there aren’t a lot of summer TV shows that I’m obsessed with, my DVR is sorely empty these days. As such, I tend to watch movies on the various cable networks. The best thing about watching movies on cable all day is that you never know which old school movies will show up, reminding you of how awesome those movies were back in the day. For the first time in over 10 years, I rewatched Swimfan (2002) and Coyote Ugly (2000) and I’m the better for it. More »

The Gotham Gang's All Here
Last week we got to see a neat villain-centric promo video for the forthcoming Batman prequel series Gotham which will debut on Fox this fall. Today, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly magazine, we get to see a just-released batch of character posters for the show. All of the main characters that we’ve seen before are represented, both good and bad. All in all, these character photos look great but we do learn that some liberty is being taken with the Batman canon. The young Poison Ivy character is named Ivy Pepper on this show when her name should be Pamela Isley. I suspect there will be other changes from the Batman canon but I’m all for it. A new version of Batman for a new series. Gotham will premiere on Fox later this year.

Thus far we’ve seen a couple of really fun domestic movie trailers for the new Marvel Comics superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy HERE and HERE but today, we get to see a super serious international movie trailer for the film released in the UK. As you can see in the video embedded above, this serious trailer changes the whole tone of the movie from a silly, free-wheeling flick to a — well, more serious film. This movie is going to rule, I’m telling your right now. Check out this international trailer above and then click below to see the just-released full collection of Guardians of the Galaxy characters posters. More »
The promo push for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has hit the streets as new street art-inspired posters continue to pop up all over the place. TMNT will open in theaters on August 8 and to get the “cool kids” to take notice of this movie, a batch of new movie posters have hit the streets. Personally, I’m looking forward to the release of TMNT out of curiosity’s sake so I’ll check this movie out in theaters. These graphic movie posters are a nice touch, I think. We’ll see if they are able to generate ticket sales at the box office.
