Coming Summer 2016
Somehow I missed the news last year that Disney is planning to remake the classic 1977 movie musical Pete’s Dragon because today we learn that principal filming of this new version of Pete’s Dragon has begun in earnest in New Zealand. Pete’s Dragon, as you may know, is a beloved Disney film that marries live-action scenes with 2D animation … it tells the story of a young boy who makes friends with a big green dragon named Elliot who can turn invisible whenever he likes. This remake, I understand, will be roughly based on the original story but will employ modern 3D computer animation rather than hand-drawn 2D animation. HMMM. More »

A few weeks ago, we got to see a new trailer for the forthcoming third season of Vikings that will premiere on The History Channel on February 19 and today we get to check out a really cool set of character posters for the show. Vikings, as I’ve made mention of many times, is one of my fave TV shows and I’m really counting down the seconds until it returns with all new eps. Even tho we still have a week or so of waiting to go before season 3 gets underway, I’m really super anxious for the show to come back so I may try and use some of my extra free time to reacquaint myself with the last few eps of season 2. If you’re a big Vikings fan like I am, I think you’ll enjoy this poster artwork. If you’re not a fan of the show, I implore you to check it out because it’s really a great series.

Check out the “big game spot” above and then click below to see a new promo poster that stars the Terminator himself. More »

Remember that movie that Sarah Michelle Gellar filmed in NYC that was titled Veronika Decides to Die? Of course you don’t because she filmed the movie way back in 2008, which is basically a million years ago. Some of you PITNB old schoolers may remember this SMG film because, at the time, I was very excited that Gellar was returning to us for the first time since Buffy the Vampire Slayer went off the air. Since that time, SMG has starred in two failed TV shows — Ringer on The CW and The Crazy Ones on CBS — and Veronika was never released … until now. Almost 7 years after it was filmed, Veronika Decides to Die is finally being released here in the US … via Video On Demand. Click below to learn more/be reminded of this new old SMG movie and watch a clip of footage from Veronika Decides to Die. More »
In Theaters July 17
Thus far we’ve seen an ant-sized teaser video and a human-sized teaser video for the first full trailer for the upcoming Marvel Studios superhero movie Ant-Man. Today we get to see the actual first trailer for the film. The trailer, which you can watch in full above, debuted during the limited series premiere of the new Marvel Studios superhero TV series Agent Carter which aired on ABC last night … and then it was immediately released online. I think it’s a great first look at the movie, particularly for those of us who aren’t familiar with this character or his mythos. A first poster has also been released for Ant-Man, you can see it below. More »

So, let me tell you about my Saturday. I decided to take it easy yesterday and not really plan to do too much. I spent some time in the afternoon running some errands, digging through vinyl bins at Origami Vinyl in Echo Park (where I found Twisted Sister) and High Fidelity in Los Feliz (where I found Aretha Franklin) … taking the day nice and slow. For a few weeks, I marked my calendar for the midnight movie showing of the 1998 movie Spice World by Spice Girls at the Cinefamily movie theater in West Hollywood … and last night was the night. I chilled out and napped for a bit on the couch last evening so that I would be all relaxed for my midnight movie. At about 11:20, I got dressed again and made my way to the theater … only to be told at the box office that THE ONLY SHOWING of Spice World was cancelled so they could show The Interview — which they’ve been showing all weekend long. I was so pissed! I even checked the movie showtimes before I left my place to make sure that Spice World was showing at midnight. I fumed the whole way home … but I still got to watch Spice World last night. More »
Nicki Minaj, as you may know, has a new album titled The Pinkprint coming out on December 15 but what you may not know is that she has other products for sale coming our way as well. Nicki‘s official online store has been stocked with new product bundles that come with orders of her new album. The store is also offering for sale stand-alone products, like her official 2015 Calendar which, as you can see below, features a fairly risqué photo of her butt soaking in what looks to be a tub of milk.
