In the past week or so, we got to feast our eyes on TWO (yes, TWO) trailers (HERE and HERE) for the forthcoming superhero sequel spectacular The Avengers: Age of Ultron … so we are very lucky humans. BUT, did it occur to you that the trailers could have ended … better? Well, worry not, an industrious fan put together a video that shows how the trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron Should Have Ended … and you can watch it in full above. Enjoy.
It was recently reported that the release date for Nicki Minaj‘s new album The Pink Print has been delayed to December but that just means Nicki has more time to promote the album’s release. Nicki just posted a pair of new promo videos on her official Instagram profile in support of The Pink Print which you can watch below. More »
The Holiday Broadway Musical Event
About a month ago, we got to check out new promo images of Allison Williams and Christopher Walken in character as Peter Pan and Captain Hook respectively as they will appear in the upcoming NBC holiday broadway musical event Peter Pan Live!, which will air on the network live on December 4. Today we get to see the first promo video for the musical special. This video is not really a trailer, per se, as it features more behind the scenes footage from the promo photoshoots but it does give us our first look at the actors in character, in real life. Personally, I’m still not at all impressed with what we’ve seen of Peter Pan Live! but, to be fair, we really haven’t seen much so … I’ll reserve judgement. What do you think?

Coming in 2018 & 2019
Yesterday we learned that Marvel Studios is planning to release 9 superhero movies over the next 5 years culminating in a two-part Avengers movie event titled Infinity War. At the press event yesterday, an announcement video was screened for Avengers: Infinity War Parts I and II which you can watch in full above. The video features footage from the Marvel movies that have already been released cut together to tease the forthcoming new set of movies, which is cool I guess, but the clip culminates in footage of the villainous Thanos brandishing the Infinity Gauntlet with all 6 infinity stones. War is coming to the cinematic Marvel universe and we are SO not ready for it … so, thankfully, we have until 2018 and 2019 to get ready. Check out the announcement video for Avengers: Infinity War above and see what you think.
"I have a message for President Snow ..."
We are less than a month away from the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 and today we get to see the final trailer released for the film. As you can see in the embed above, this final trailer features footage that we’ve seen before but it does include very exciting previously unseen footage as well. The Mockingjay will rise on November 21, are you ready?
"I’ve got a really dumb idea."
At the start of this month, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher welcomed the birth of their first child together, a daughter they named Wyatt Isabelle. Last night, Ashton paid a visit to Conan to talk about fatherhood and reveal the inspiration behind his daughter’s name. Apparently, the couple had a name all picked out for their little girl but decided that it wasn’t the right name for her … so Kutcher came up with the “dumb idea” to name her Wyatt and Mila agreed it was the perfect name for their child. So, yeah. More »

"Mother Theresa" does late night TV
Taylor Swift released her new album 1989 this week (which is already on track to be the most successful album of 2014) and last night she made an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman to perform her new single Welcome to New York and chat with Dave about her new music. You can click the embed above to watch Taylor (whom Letterman refers to as Mother Theresa for the way she treats her fans) perform New York in full (yes, the song is still insanely catchy when performed live) then you can click below to watch interview clips of Taylor talking about the house parties she hosted for fans, her lurve for Lena Dunham and her affinity for writing snarky songs about lousy ex-boyfriends.

So good. Just, soooo good.
The first trailer for The Avengers: Age of Ultron was supposed to air during last night’s broadcast of Marvel‘s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. but because the clip leaked a week early, the first trailer was officially released early as well. But, because Marvel Studios loves us so much, they aired a second trailer for Ultron during last night’s broadcast of S.H.I.E.L.D. which features new footage from the film (and footage already featured in the first trailer). The first part of this second trailer is just too perfect … it’s so Joss Whedon, it hurts … but in the best way possible. The look on Thor‘s face when his hammer moves a tiny bit when Captain America tries to pick it up is priceless. OMG, so good! Enjoy this trailer … I know you will.
The embed above features a woman who was secretly filmed for 10 hours as she walked the streets of New York City, NY in an effort to show the harassment that women face just by merely walking the streets of, well, any city in the world. Without the slightest bit of provocation, this woman is subjected to cat calls, harassing comments, and exclamations like DAMN! DAMN! from men acting like mindless animals. The woman in this video, Shoshana, commented after this video was filmed “I’m harassed when I smile and I’m harassed when I don’t. I’m harassed by white men, black men, latino men. Not a day goes by when I don’t experience this.” I must warn you, this video is very uncomfortable to watch no matter who you are. When the women refrains from reacting or responding to the unsolicited comments that are thrown her way, she is sometimes verbally attacked for not being thankful at the unwanted catcalls. As uncomfortable as it is to watch, I’m really glad that this video was made and shared online. No one deserves to be treated this way.
