This is why we can't have nice things
In spite of the very good news we heard earlier today that Back to The Future will NEVER get a remake for as long as Robert Zemeckis lives, we learn right now that Fox is planning a television series remake of the 1987 thriller Fatal Attraction. Yes, in a long line of bad remake ideas, comes another bad remake idea. You may recall that we learned last month that Lifetime is planning a TV remake of Fame (1980) … and now this. Sigh. Read on for all the known gory details. More »

A world of YES!
In the past few years leading up to the past few months, we have heard about musical adaptations of movies like The Craft, Clueless, almost every Baz Luhrmann movie and Cruel Intentions to name but a few. Today we learn that the folks who created the Cruel Intentions musical will unveil this summer a musical based on the TV series The OC. Yes, this is a real thing that is really happening. I believe the word you are currently trying to think of is, OMGGGGGGGGGG!!!!!!! More »

“These are all brand new stories."
Earlier this month, we got to see fun photos from the set of The X-Files, which is currently filming new episodes set to air on Fox early next year. Today we get to see X-Files stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny on the cover of this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine. The X-Files has long been a staple of EW magazine coverage and I just know the publication has been chomping at the bit to devote more coverage to the show. The fact that they put The X-Files in their cover just weeks after the series went back into production shows just how excited they are that the show is back … and really, aren’t we all just as excited? Click below to see this week’s X-Files cover of EW magazine and preview the cover story feature that is published within. More »
"The season is being described as Daredevil Vs. The Punisher!"
Earlier this month, we learned that actor Jon Bernthal has been cast as The Punisher / Frank Castle in the forthcoming second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. It is commonly known that both Daredevil and The Punisher are both heroes that fight the forces of evil in NYC (tho, in very different ways). But, that’s not to suggest that the two heroes are necessarily friends. Today we hear that The Punisher will be featured heavily in season two of Marvel’s Daredevil but NOT as a villain per se … which means that the TV show story will very likely follow the adversarial story between these two that has been told and retold in the Marvel comic books. The season is being described as “Daredevil vs. The Punisher“, which has a really nice ring to me. More »
"I am telling my story"
At the start of this month, we got to see the first video promo for Caitlyn Jenner‘s upcoming docuseries I Am Cait, which will debut on E! next month. Today we get to see the just-released second trailer for the series and as you can see, it is packed full of heart and familial love. The promo is centered around Caitlyn explanation why she decided to do this docuseries. As you can hear from Caitlyn herself, her reasons for doing the series are very personal, sound and hopeful. And I have to say, she looks really great in this promo … primarily because she looks so damn happy. Click below to get a new look at I Am Cait. More »
The new Ghostface killer takes his first victims
Back in April we got our first look at the new Scream TV series coming to MTV this year and earlier this month, we got our first look at the new mask that will be worn by the new Ghostface killer. Today we get to see the first 8 minutes of this new series based on the Scream horror movie franchise. After hearing about this series and then watching the first trailer, I have to admit that I wasn’t really all that excited by this new show. I must admit that I am charmed by this look at how the series will start when it premieres on MTV. It deff has that Scream feel … and we get to see the first murders of the series … AND we get to see the Ghostface killer rocking the new mask. I dunno. I may end up watching this series after all. Check out the first 8 minutes of Scream: The TV Series and see what you think.
"Earth doesn't have just one hero anymore"
Last month, CBS released the first trailer for their upcoming Supergirl TV series which will debut on the network this fall. Today we get to see a second, shorter international trailer for the series that is far superior to the first trailer, IMHO. This second trailer is shorter and more concise than the first trailer and as you can hear in the embed above, it features much more exciting and non-sappy romcom music. Many people were turned off by the first trailer’s use of schmaltzy music which they felt made Supergirl seem weak or not serious. The music featured in this second trailer is very exciting and much better suited to a superhero series. Have a look above and see what you think. I think you’re really gonna love what you see here.

"You ever get the feeling that you were meant to do something extraordinary?"
Earlier this week we got to see a new teaser for the upcoming sequel series Heroes Reborn coming to NBC this September and today we get to see the just-released first full trailer for the show.

This trailer gives us our first look at many of the characters that we will get to know when the series returns on September 24. Check out this trailer for Heroes Reborn and get your first sense of what we can expect this fall. Does this look like a Heroes series that you will watch from week to week?

Amy Poehler made a special appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night to participate in the beloved Saturday Night Live bit Really? With Seth & Amy … and you can watch video of her appearance in full above. Really? With Seth & Amy was a regular staple on SNL when Seth and Amy co-hosted Weekend Update together and it was one of my fave bits on the show. This time around Seth and Amy were inspired by one Sports Illustrated magazine writer’s dig at all women’s sports to revive Really? With Seth & Amy for laughs. As fun as this video is, I wish the two would’ve skewered more things than just one SI writer’s idiocy. Now that Seth and Amy have done this once … maybe we can count on more installments of Really? With Seth & Amy in the future ;)
