"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 »
"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. As you may already be aware, Heroes Reborn will star members from the original cast of Heroes alongside a new group of actors. 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?

This looks ridiculous and cheesy and kind of awesome
Sure, this sort of looks like a movie we’ve seen before. It’s Step-Brothers, but with Dads. It’s The Other Guys, in that it re-teams Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg. But it’s still fun! Ferrell is playing a step-father who’s having trouble convincing the kids of his awesomeness—a task which becomes even more difficult when their bilogical dad comes back into town, with his abs and treehouse-building skillz. It looks a little cheesy, but I did LOL at “goodnight back scratches.” Peep the video for more!
"Gotta f*ck 'em all"
In terms of pop culture-inspired porn parodies, we’ve seen mostly entertaining offerings that have spoofed Guardians of the Galaxy, Game of Thrones, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Man of Steel … to name but a few. Today, we learn that WoodRocket Productions has taken the porn parody treatment into the world of … Pokémon. A trailer for their newest offering, titled Strokémon, has been released and as you can see above, except for some strong language, the trailer is mostly safe for work (tho, the Pikachu-like character named Dickachu is the stuff nightmares are made of. All of your fave Pokémon characters are spoofed in this porn parody — Ash, Misty, Brock, even Team Rocket (Jess, James and a nekkid Meowth):
Honestly, I like having fun with silly porn parody offerings but this one … this one is different. I’m so terrified by the prospect of these characters having sex that I’m not sure my frail little heart could handle the NSFW version of this trailer. But, if you are the type of person that would love to have your childhood completely destroyed by a porn parody film based on a beloved cartoon from your youth, then Strokémon
might be right up your alley.

"Snoopy, what would I do without a friend like you"
In November of last year, we got our first look at the first teaser trailer for the upcoming animated feature film The Peanuts Movie. In January, we got to see a second trailer for the film. Today we get to see a just-released new trailer that gives us our first look at Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang in action … and also gives us our first opportunity to hear the characters speak. As you can see in the trailer embedded above, many of the Peanuts gags that we’ve seen in the comic strip and classic animated specials have been updated for this new film … and I like what I see. While some may take anything other than the classic Peanuts specials (It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Christmas, etc.) as blasphemy, I can see the fun potential of this movie. Check out the trailer and see what you think, The Peanuts Movie will hit theaters this holiday season.
"A land flowing with milk and honey..."
If you’re one of those people who gave up on Season One of HBO‘s The Leftovers after the first two or three episodes, I urge you to reconsider. I’ve written about how it became one of my favorite shows last year, right alongside Transparent and True Detective. It’s a dark show, with some big religious and philosophical overtones, as it centers on the lives of people in a community who lost family and friends to—what? A religious rapture? Dark forces? Nothing? And, like most great shows, it’s also about family and how we define that concept, and how far we’ll go to protect it. Peep the video above for a quick look at Season Two—it looks like everyone’s headed to the one town in the world that can boast of no “departed” people.

1 Week to Go!
Back in March we learned the very exciting news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar has joined her husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. as part of the cast of the Disney XD animated series Star Wars: Rebels. Today, we get to check out the video teaser above that reminds us (!) that Star Wars: Rebels season 2 premieres in one week (!!!). As you may recall, we saw a 3+ minute long trailer for the entirety of SW: Rebels season 2 earlier this year which makes it seem like Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones, of course) will be featured heavily on the show. Vader is also featured pretty prominently in this teaser for the season 2 premiere episode, The Siege of Lothal … but we really do not know how much Darth Vader we will be getting this season. All will be revealed soon, tho, as Star Wars: Rebels premieres with a 1 hour episode on Saturday June 20. If you are a Star Wars fan, this is an animated series you should be watching. And if you are any kind of Buffy fan at all, you’ll deff want to tune in to hear SMG voice one of the characters on the show :)

June 20, yes for real
Last week we learned the surprising news that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig will be starring in a ridiculous made-for-TV movie on Lifetime this month titled A Deadly Adoption and today we get to feast our eyes on the FIRST TRAILER for the TV movie. Based on a true story, A Deadly Adoption is described as “a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hope of adopting her unborn child” … and then, I’m assuming, MAYHEM STRIKES! When this TV movie was revealed last week, many people believed that it was a hoax of some kind … and maybe it is a hoax … but it is also a real TV movie that will premiere on Lifetime on June 20. Check out the teaser trailer above and see if it looks like something you’d like to watch. I am definitely going to tune in, I can’t wait :D
"Turn your weapons to the capital"
Back in March we got to see the first teaser video for the final Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay – Part 2, which hits theaters at the end of this year. In April, we got to see the latest promo poster for the film. Today, at long last, we get our FIRST LOOK at the first footage from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 with the release of the first movie trailer. Everything that we’ve seen in the previous Hunger Games movies has led up to this final film. I literally got goosebumps listening to Jennifer Lawrence‘s voice-over in this trailer. When she marches into the capital and says, “Turn your weapons to the capital” my heart stopped. There are lots of really great scenes in this first trailer for Mockingjay – Part 2, check it out and freak out with me, won’t you? The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opens in theaters on November 20.
