"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.
Evil Takes Many Forms
An indie horror movie titled The Witch made waves at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, causing quite a bit of conversation about how scary it was. Today we get our first look at The Witch in the just-released movie trailer embedded above. Set in colonial New England, The Witch seemingly tells a tale that we are already familiar with … but, as the first trailer above shows, in a very disturbing way. I’ve heard really great things about the movie, yes, but must admit that this first trailer is creepily unsettling but not nearly as terrifying as I’ve heard. My guess is that the filmmakers don’t want to give anything away before people can see the film. Check out the trailer above to get your first look at The Witch then click below to see the film’s poster artwork … More »

"I'm still alive"
Back in June we got our first look at the first movie trailer for Ridley Scott‘s new film, The Martian, which stars Matt Damon as a NASA astronaut stranded on Mars after a space mission goes awry. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the film which hits theaters in November. Based on the novel by Andy Weir, The Martian promises high drama in the most extreme circumstances. As you may recall, the film’s first trailer had a very tense, dramatic feel to it. This second trailer feels a bit more light-hearted, thanks to the inclusion of music. I am very much looking forward to the release of this movie. The Martian opens in theaters on November 25.

"You were looking at me in a way that I recognize."
Sir Patrick Stewart, one of the greatest living actors of our time, paid a visit to Conan O’Brien‘s late night talk show last night to promote his latest project (The Blunt Talk) and was queried by Conan about a recent kiss that Stewart shared with his longtime BFF Sir Ian McKellan on the red carpet of a recent premiere event. Stewart explained where the inspriation for the same-sex kiss came from and then offered to kiss Conan in much the same way. Conan, obviously couldn’t pass up the chance to share a smooch with Patrick Stewart and BAM! … the magic happened right before our eyes. Click below to watch video of Conan O’Brien kissing Patrick Stewart and have your entire day made. More »
The glorious return of Chvrches
Last month we learned officially that the electronic/synth band Chvrches is releasing their sophomore album Every Open Eye in September and we’ve, thus far, gotten to hear two songs from the album — Leave A Trace and Never Ending Circles (both EXCELLENT songs, I have to say). Today we get to see the just-released, official music video for the first single from the new album and as you can see in the embed above, Chvrches have revealed a beautifully simple visual representation for Leave A Trace. I’m a big fan of the Chvrches visual aesthetic which compliments their music very well. Their new album Every Open Eye will be released on September 25 and I’ll just be watching and listening to Leave A Trace non-stop on repeat until that glorious day.

"You're So Beautiful..."
You know, it’s like I really want to be one of the cool kids who doesn’t watch Empire and isn’t foaming at the mouth thinking about Season Two, but I am just not that cool. My body is ready for Empire and you can’t stop me from singing “You’re So Beautiful” to myself, my kids and the cookies I’m going to make later this afternoon. DEAL WITH IT. Jussie Smollett and Yazz the Greatest performed the hit track at the 2015 Teen Choice Awards, but IMO, it was the god Gabby Sidibe (AKA Becky) who stole the show when she popped up on stage. Peep the video for more!
Up down, up down, UP. Down.
