Yes, Arnold says "I'll be back"
In August we learned the title, in October we got our first look at the characters, yesterday we saw the motion poster and today — we get to see the first trailer for the upcoming sequel/reboot film Terminator: Genisys. As you can see above, Genisys looks more like a retelling of the Terminator origin story rather than an actual sequel … tho, it would appear that the plot is open enough for interpretation to make an argument that this is a sequel. I dunno. The trailer looks much better than I was anticipating so that’s the good news. Terminator: Genisys will open in theaters next summer. Does it look like something you’re dying to see?

Thus far, we have seen the official teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens and the Internet has given us both a LEGO version of the teaser and an imagined George Lucas version of the teaser. Today, we get to see what the teaser trailer might look like had it been directed by Wes Anderson. Since the LEGO version came out, there have been a plethora of similar (yet subpar) parody videos … but this Wes Anderson one is so perfect that I had to share it. Thank you Internet, for this here gift.
OY! Mariah Carey was a featured performer tonight on the NBC TV special Christmas in Rockefeller Center with her live performance of All I Want For Christmas Is You in honor of the Xmas tree lightning ceremony. As you can hear in the embed above, Mimi had a ROUGH time hitting many of the notes throughout the song, making for a painful listening experience. The TV special hasn’t even aired on the West Coast yet but video of her performance has already hit the Internets. Check out her performance above and see what you think. I love me some Mimi but, LORDE have mercy, she did not sing her song well tonight at all. UPDATE: Audio of Mimi‘s performance with just her isolated vocals (no music accompaniment at all) has surfaced and you can hear it below. More »
"Isn't she beautiful?"
For a few months now, ever since Eva Mendes gave birth to Ryan Gosling‘s baby, the world has been clamoring for its first look at the couple’s baby daughter Esmerelda Amada. As you may recall, Eva gave her first interview last month since giving birth in September and revealed the inspiration for her daughter’s name but today, at long last, we get our first look at the baby courtesy of the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Have a look below. More »
It's that time again
Each year, DJ Earworm releases a compilation mash-up music video titled United State of Pop that complies his selection of the year’s greatest pop hits and today we get our first listen/first look at his 2014 song. This year’s compilation is titled Do What You Wanna Do and it turned out pretty sweet, I think. Have a listen above and let’s remember all the great pop hits from 2014.
NBC just released the promo videos for this weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live which will feature actor James Franco as the guest host and as you can see above, these promo videos show James Franco acting all James Franco … which means this weekend’s episode of SNL will be all James Franco-y soooo … yeah. On the plus side, Nicki Minaj will be the musical guest this weekend so that’s something to look forward to. Right?
Don't Call, Just Txt
Last month we got to check out a clever lyric video for a new holiday song by Straight No Chaser titled Text Me Merry Christmas that features Kristen Bell on guest vocals. Today we get to see the just-released official music video for the song. HMMM. As you can see above, the official music video features stop-motion animation of a creepy dollwoman who, I think, is supposed to look like a scary Kristen Bell. Personally, I prefer the lyric video we saw last month over this official music video but … in either case, the song is still fun. Have a look, please enjoy.
An annual tradition
Every year, since 2006, The Killers have recorded and released a holiday single that they sell to raise funds for charity. This year, they teamed up with Jimmy Kimmel for their 2014 holiday single which was premiered on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. The Killers and Kimmel collaborated on a song titled Joel, the Lump of Coal. Click the embed above to watch a very long video about the recording of the song or skip to the 5:15 mark to watch the music video for the song.
The music video we deserve
After a group of friends got snowed in over the Thanksgiving weekend, the BFFs decided to pass the time by remaking Beyoncé‘s music video for 7/11 … and the result is priceless. If you loved Bey‘s video for 7/11, I have a feeling that you are going to REALLY LOVE this shirtless guys version of the video. Please enjoy.

"Who got the lighter?"
Back in October we got our first taste of Gwen Stefani‘s new single Spark The Fire, in November we got to hear the song in full … today, we get to see the just-released music video. Spark The Fire is Gwen‘s latest collaboration with longtime producer and friend Pharrell Williams and as you can see in the embed above, it calls for a crazycute music video. Fans of Gwen‘s earlier solo material may recognize that this new song sounds a bit like her song Yummy and the animated emojis hearken back to her What You Waiting For? days. I think the song is pretty OK and the vid is fun but … I really want more from Gwen Stefani. News songs that only remind me of old songs aren’t really all that exciting. Hmm.
BUT, if you can’t get enough of Spark The Fire, click below to watch Gwen and Pharrell perform the song live on The Voice last night. More »
