Whatcha got there, Finn?
Yesterday we got our first look at some of the awesome toys that will be released for sale in conjunction with the forthcoming release of the anticipated Star Wars sequel film The Force Awakens in December. Today we get to see a short clip of new footage from the film which was debuted on the official Star Wars Instagram profile earlier today. Instagram now allows photos and videos to be shared both vertically and horizontally (rather than just merely squarely) and they used this new footage from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to announce this new functionality. The clip embedded below features mostly scenes from the movie that we’ve seen before but there are a couple of new scenes so … what are you waiting for? Have a look. More »
'Friends' for life
Taylor Swift performed her 5th and final sold out concert at the Staples Center here in LA last night and, as expected, she brought out a few special guests to help make the night special for the folks in attendance. Among the special surprise guests that Taylor brought out on stage were her real life BFF Selena Gomez and pop star Justin Timberlake — which is cool and all, I have to say, but the really amazing moment of the night came when Taylor brought out Friends actress Lisa Kudrow to perform the Phoebe Buffay song Smelly Cat live on stage. OMG. Last weekend, Taylor brought out Friends stars Matt LeBlanc and Matthew Perry as special guests during her Saturday night show so it’s clear that Tay Tay is a huge Friends fan (as are we all). But to have Lisa on stage to perform Smelly Cat is just WAY TOO MUCH. I love it! Taylor wisely decided to end her run of sold out Staples Center shows with a bang, and I approve greatly. Check out the video above to watch Taylor and Lisa perform Smelly Cat and have it brighten up your day considerably.
Coming Halloween 2015
Back in May, we got our first look at the first teaser released for the new Starz original TV series Ash Vs. Evil Dead and today we get to see the just-released second teaser for the series. Ash Vs. Evil Dead is a sequel series of sorts to the original Evil Dead and Army of Darkness films that made Bruce Campbell a star. As you can see in the teaser embedded above, this new series will feature the same humor and silly gore that has made the Evil Dead franchise a beloved cult classic. Have a look at this teaser and see how many times it makes you laugh. I’m really looking forward to this new series, which will appropriately premiere on Starz on Hallowe’en.

"Say you'll see me again even if it's just in your wildest dreams"
The 2015 MTV Video Music Awards are going to be a big night for Taylor Swift who is not only nominated for some of the biggest awards of the night but also because that is the night that she will world premiere the music video for her the next single from her album 1989. The music video for Wildest Dreams will be released in full during the pre-show on VMAs night but, in order to tide us over until then, Taylor has released a very short snippet of the music video on her official Instagram profile. As you can see below, this video preview features short flashes of scenes from the video … which appropriately teases what’s to come. Have a look below and get your first tiny taste of Taylor Swift‘s Wildest Dreams. More »
"You ain't seen nothin' yet"
Earlier this month, we saw a promo video for the forthcoming second season of Gotham on Fox and, as you may recall, the video promo focused on the lunatics who have taken over control of Arkham Asylum. Today we get to see a new promo video for Gotham that makes plainly clear that the villains will rise when the show’s sophomore season premieres on September 21. As you can see in the video embedded above, season 2 of Gotham will bring us the return of some of the villains featured in season 1 (like the possible Joker) and will introduce new baddies (including a very Catwoman-like character, clad in skintight latex rubber and wielding a bullwhip). Gotham was one of my fave shows of the last TV season so I’m anxious for its return next month. In a city famous for its villains, it’ll be fun to get back to Gotham and see how they are doing.

So the best
With the release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron on DVD/Blu-Ray comes a bunch of bonus material including a hilarious gag reel, which has been shared online for our viewing pleasure. Because the video embedded here appears to be unauthorized, it’s very likely that it will not remain online for long … so enjoy it while you can. The full clip of Avengers f*ck-ups can be enjoyed over and over to one’s heart’s content on the official video release of this movie and if the embed above is any indication, this video release is a must-own for Avengers fans. I think my fave parts of this gag reel are the kissing scenes … and Dr. Selvig‘s scenes. The whole thing is funny as hell, so enjoy.
Here come the creepies
Last month, we got to see the first teaser video for the forthcoming new season of American Horror Story: Hotel. Today we get to see two new video trailers that have just been released for our viewing pleasure. As they did in previous years, the promo team for AHS: Hotel have concocted a series of creepy-ass video teasers that are meant to entice viewers to watch the new season of the show … while foregoing restful sleep due to the nightmares induced by the imagery featured in these video clips. Click below to see the newest video teasers for AHS: Hotel and get your first taste of the disturbing promo push for the show to come. More »
The post-Zayn era is officially here
It has been a few months now since Zayn Malik left the pop group One Direction and while he is busy figuring out what his post-1D life will be about, his former groupmates are moving forward — full steam ahead — with their pop music dominance. One Direction has released the music video for their new single Drag Me Down (their first song released without Zayn Malik as a member of the group) and as you can see above, the British boys play US astronauts in the video. Casual attention to the song’s lyrics show that they bare no association whatsoever to the storyline of the music video, which doesn’t really matter to be honest. Click the embed above to get your first look at the new Zaynless incarnation of One Direction as they blast forward into space (and elsewhere) as a newly configured pop music foursome.
