Meet Francis Dolarhyde
NBC has released a new video featurette for the upcoming new season of Hannibal that features new scenes from the show, interviews with the main cast and the revelation that the infamous Red Dragon character will be introduced in season 3. For some time now, there has been speculation as to when the Hannibal TV series might feature Francis Dolarhyde / The Red Dragon on the show and today we learn that he will be featured on the show this season … which is almost too good to be true. Hannibal, already, is a brilliant series. That we will get the Red Dragon storyline thrown into the mix as well in season 3 seems like an abundance of riches. Check out this First Look video featurette for Hannibal season 3 and GET SUPER EXCITED, the new season of the show will premiere in just over ONE WEEK on June 4.
BONUS: The official Hannibal Twitter account also shared a new TV trailer for the upcoming 3rd season, which YOU MUST WATCH below. More »

Not content with being the musical mastermind of one of the greatest groups in modern music or being an Academy Award-winning film composer, Trent Reznor is now composing music for video game trailers … like this one for Batman: Arkham Knight. Reznor has LONG been a fan of video game composition. Back in the mid-’90s, Reznor composed an entirely original score for the Quake video game, years before anyone else was seriously paying attention to video game music composition. I LOVE that TR is now working on the Batman video games because, honestly, I can’t think of a better pairing. Check out the Be The Batman trailer above to hear a new version of the Nine Inch Nails song The Wretched adapted for this video game see how well Reznor‘s music works in the video game world of Batman.
"When you change the world, Prepare to defend it"
Earlier today we heard from actor Michael B. Jordan about the racist comments that he’s been receiving ever since it was announced that he won the role of The Human Torch / Johnny Storm in the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot movie. Right now, we get to see MBJ and his fellow F4 castmates in a new international trailer for their movie. I can’t say that I’m yet wowed by what we’ve seen thus far of this new F4 movie (tho I am very impressed with the way Jordan is handling himself) but I’m a longtime fan of the comic book characters so I’m deffo interested in seeing this movie when it comes out on August 7.

"This is the best idea we've ever had"
Last night, NBC aired a telethon to benefit Red Nose Day here in the US which is an initiative to raise funds for needy families. Among the skits and performances aired during the telethon, was the bit embedded above that shows us what a Game of Thrones musical composed by Coldplay might look and sound like. I didn’t watch the telethon last night but I do love this clip. Check it out, see if you like it, too. And if you would like to donate to support Red Nose Day, you can do so HERE.
Britney Spears performed her last Britney: Piece of Me show in Las Vegas this week before she breaks for the summer for a little hiatus. To celebrate her last show for a while, she invited model (and Toxic music video co-star) Tyson Beckford to perform on stage with her during her performance of Freakshow (you may recall that Nicole Ritchie is another celeb who performed Freakshow with Britney in Vegas last year). Click below to watch video of Britney and Tyson getting freaky in Las Vegas together and savor the moment … our dear Britney Spears won’t be performing in Vegas again until after the summer is over.

Directed by Sofia Coppola
Bill Murray has teamed up with director Sofia Coppola for a new Xmas special that will air on Netflix later this year and as you can see in the first teaser above, it looks like A Very Murray Christmas will have the same feel as their brilliant film Lost In Translation. According to Netflix, this holiday special will be “an homage to the classic variety show featuring Bill Murray playing himself, as he worries no one will show up to his TV show due to a terrible snow storm in New York City. Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at the Carlyle hotel to help him; dancing and singing in holiday spirit.” Guest stars will include George Clooney, Paul Shaffer, Amy Poehler, Julie White, Dimitri Dimitrov, Michael Cera, Chris Rock, David Johansen, Maya Rudolph, Jason Schwartzman, Jenny Lewis, Phoenix, Frederic Moulin, Rashida Jones, Miley Cyrus, and more … so, yeah, it’s going to be massive. I can’t even tell you how excited I am by the prospect of Murray and Coppola working together again on a new project. There is no release date yet but this special should be out by the holidays. Ho Ho Ho!
It's a girl
Universal Pictures has released a new TV spot for the forthcoming sequel film Jurassic World, which will come roaring into theaters on June 12, that is all about the baby dinos … their births, actually. As you may recall, back in 1993 when the original film was released, we were wowed by the sight of baby dinosaurs (velociraptors, in particular) being born from their eggs. It looks like Jurassic World is happy to capitalize on that memory of dino birth for this new film, too. It’s brilliant to remind people how much they love Jurassic Park because it will likely get them exited to rush out and see Jurassic World. I know I’ll be there opening day, will you?

"He gave everybody license ... to live their little dreams for a little bit"
Remember back in November of 2013 when San Francisco, CA was turned into Gotham City so that Miles Batkid Scott could live out his Make-A-Wish dream to become Batman? Well, his story and the story of that day have been turned into a documentary film titled Batkid Begins. The first trailer for the film can be watched in full above and, as you can see, it’s a story full of heart, love and hope. I teared up a bit watching this trailer, I think you might do the same. Batkid Begins will open in select theaters on June 26.

"Get a taste of Paris with Hannibal"
NBC has released a new promo video for the forthcoming third season of Hannibal, which will premiere on June 4, and as you can see above we are introduced to the Cannibal of Paris. I can see in this teaser that things will get right back to normal for Dr. Hannibal Lecter, even tho he was forced to flee the US at the conclusion of last season. It would appear that living on the lam will not be much of a problem for Hannibal … and his bride ;D Remember, Hannibal season 3 will premiere on NBC on June 4, you do not want to miss this show. I am so excited, I can’t even tell you.
