Ever since the all-female cast reboot of Ghostbusters was announced, the film has attracted more than its fair share of haters and naysayers. Earlier today, actress Melissa McCarthy shared a photo on her official Twitter profile snapped on the set of Ghostbusters that features the women who make up the cast and the crew of the reboot film in a proud display of Girl Power! As you can see below, the Ghostbusters cast are front and center holding up a a banner and they are surrounded by many (if not all) of the women who are working behind the scenes on this new Ghostbusters movie. It’s a really remarkable photo, check it out below. More »

Following in the footsteps of Michael Jackson, Madonna, Britney Spears & Beyoncé
MTV will air their annual Video Music Awards LIVE from the Microsoft Theater in downtown LA on Sunday August 30 and, as we learned last month, Miley Cyrus will be hosting this year’s affair. Today we learn that rapper Kanye West has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award which celebrates excellence in music, art, fashion and culture. Previous Video Vanguard winners include Michael Jackson (for which the award was renamed after his death), Madonna, Beastie Boys, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and last year’s recipient Beyoncé … so Kanye is now in very good company. MTV has produced a promo video announcing Kanye‘s Video Vanguard award, which you can watch in full below along with more information about the MTV VMAs in a newly issued press release. More »
"Don't worry though"
Yesterday we learned of a horribly tragic report that made the bold claim that the members of the British boyband One Direction are planning to “separate” in order to take on individual solo projects after they release their next album next year. At the time of the reporting, the PR team for 1D offered suspicious “no comments” in response to the break-up claim. Today we are hearing from 2 members of One Direction who insist that the group is NOT breaking up for good and clarify that the group is merely “taking a break” from boybanding … which, I’m sure may agree, sounds an awful lot like a prelude to a break-up. BUT, a promise is a promise and Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson SWEAR that we shouldn’t “worry” because One Direction isn’t “going anywhere”. More »
Last week, we got to hear a tiny portion of Ryan Adams‘s cover of Taylor Swift‘s song Shake It Off, as featured Adams‘s version of Swift‘s album 1989 — which he has been recording for a few weeks now. Today we get the “update people have been asking for” regarding the progress of Ryan‘s version of 1989 … and it’s a good one. Ryan tells us that the album will be fully completed this week and he suggests (without coming right out and saying so) that the album may be released “very soon”. As you can read below, Ryan says there is only one step left for the album to be completely finished and … ready for release? HMMMMM. Read on. More »

It's almost time
As the premiere date for The Walking Dead season 6 draws closer, the promo stuff from the new season is coming with more frequency. Back in July, we got to see the first trailer for The Walking Dead season 6 after it was debuted at San Diego Comic-Con. Entertainment Weekly magazine gave us an inside look at the new season in a cover story feature on the new season just a few weeks ago. Today, we get to see a moody new promo video titled We Are One that showcases the characters that know and love (and still live). Additionally, a clip of footage from the season 6 premiere episode was debuted on The Talking Dead last night, which you can watch in full below. Click the embed above to watch the moody promo clip then click below to watch actual episode footage and feed your need for The Walking Dead. More »

They were joined by Sebastian Stan, Chadwick Boseman and others
A couple of weeks ago, we saw photos of actor Chadwick Boseman in character as Black Panther on the set of the forthcoming superhero sequel film Captain America: Civil War. Today we learn that principal filming has wrapped on the production of Civil War as evidenced by a wrap party that was held in Leipzig, Germany this weekend attended by some of the film’s stars. As you can see below, actors Chris Evans (Captain America), Anthony Mackie (Falcon), Sebastian Stan (The Winter Soldier) and Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther) partied with some of the members of the film crew — and apparently Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), even tho she isn’t featured in any of the photos. Click below to get a look at how much fun the cast and crew of Civil War had as they celebrated together the end of filming of their new movie. 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.

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 »
"This is Banksy's graffiti rendered into 3D"
Earlier today we saw photos of Banksy‘s new art exhibit/installation Dismaland, which is a 2.5 acre life-size dystopian amusement park that showcases the artwork of over 50 artists. Right now, we get to see an excellent video tour of Dismaland, provided by Channel 4 News. The photos we saw earlier are great but this video tour gives us a much better understanding what this Banksy exhibit truly entails. For those of us who are unable to travel to the UK to visit Dismaland in person, this video is a nice consolation prize. Have a look above and see what Banksy‘s Dismaland is all about, in all it’s depressing glory.
