Spoiler Alert Warning?
We are just weeks away from the theatrical debut of the long-anticipated sequel film Jurassic World and fans are already chomping at the bit for any new info on the film as soon as it is available. Many Jurassic World toys and books have been released already and one book in particular, Where Dinosaurs Come to Life, is giving us our first LISTEN of what the Indominus Rex dinosaur‘s roar will sound like. The book comes with an interactive app that uses virtual reality to make the dinosaurs come to life … it’s really neat, I have to say. Click the embed to watch and skip to the 11:25 minute mark to hear Indominus Rex roar for the first time. I have a feeling the roar will sound much more impressive in movie theaters but this is a really great tease for the movie to come.

"Get a taste of Paris with Hannibal"
NBC has released a new promo video for the forthcoming third season of Hannibal, which will premiere on June 4, and as you can see above we are introduced to the Cannibal of Paris. I can see in this teaser that things will get right back to normal for Dr. Hannibal Lecter, even tho he was forced to flee the US at the conclusion of last season. It would appear that living on the lam will not be much of a problem for Hannibal … and his bride ;D Remember, Hannibal season 3 will premiere on NBC on June 4, you do not want to miss this show. I am so excited, I can’t even tell you.

How about that season 1 finale ep last night, eh?
The first season of The Flash ended on The CW last night and I have to say, Wow, what a great debut season it was. As soon as the episode ended, the first teaser video for the upcoming second season was aired … and is embedded above. In all honesty, this season 2 teaser doesn’t really offer anything of real note … it just features show creators Greg Berlanti (who is currently on the cover of Variety) and Andrew Kreisberg talking about how excited they are for the new season … they make promises, blah blah blah. BUT, I did want to post this teaser so that I would have a post where I could talk a bit about what we saw in the season 1 finale ep last night. Now, I don’t want to spoil anything for those of you who have yet to see last night’s ep (but what are you waiting for, go watch it immediately) so I’ll keep my comments below, under the cut. Let’s discuss, shall we? More »

Seriously, you're gonna love
An old video that has been online since at least 2006 has surfaced again and shows a young Vin Diesel breakdancing his buns off back in the 1980s. There isn’t a lot of information about the video on its You Tube page but, really, the video speaks for itself. Vin (back when he was still Mark Sinclair) can be seen performing a breakdance routine with a friend wearing a matching outfit and … OMG, it’s been too long since I’ve watched the video myself so I’m just gonna end this post here and let you get to watching the clip. Ye gods, this is the best thing I’ve seen all week … watch it and fall in love.

Season 1 Coach Auditions
Back in February, Christina Aguilera showed off her pretty impressive impersonations of Britney Spears, Cher and Shakira while playing Wheel of Musical Impressions on The Tonight Show. Today, we get to see video of Xtina doing impressions of those same pop stars and a few more in a new video promo for The Voice that, I’m guessing, was inspired by her bit on The Tonight Show last winter. The gimmick is that Xtina is impersonating all of the other singers who auditioned to be coaches on season 1 of The Voice. Some of the impressions are cute, mostly because of the costuming, but I think she did a better job sounding like the other singers back in February. Watch the video above and judge for yourselves. Is Xtina truly the Queen of all Impressions?
"I'm not a girl trying to be a star. I'm just a girl that sings"
Back in early April, we got to see the first video teaser for the forthcoming documentary film on the life of the late pop singer Amy Winehouse. Today, we get to see the just-released full-length trailer for the film Amy. As you may know, this documentary was filmed with the full support of Amy‘s family … but once the finished film was released, the family has decided to distance themselves from the project. As I understand it, the Winehouse family (Amy‘s father Mitch Winehouse, in particular) doesn’t come off looking too great in this film and they are angry. IMHO, it sounds like they aren’t happy that the truth about Amy‘s life and death are being exposed in this very well reviewed documentary film. I wasn’t the biggest Amy Winehouse fan but her immense talent cannot be denied. This is a film that I’d be very interested in seeing, if only to be reminded of the amazing voice that has been lost to us. Amy opens in select theaters on July 3.

"WHY YOU GOT A KNIFE IN YO THROAT?!!!!!!!"
Fox will debut a new Ryan Murphy TV series this fall titled Scream Queens that will star a lot of actors who have starred in his other projects and from the look of the first trailer, is an homage/rip-off of TV shows like Pretty Little Liars and movies like Scream (which shouldn’t be confused with MTV‘s new TV series titled Scream which is actually based on the Scream movie franchise). For much of this 3 minute trailer, I rolled my eyes with bored annoyance … but something about the last 40 secs. or so softened me up a bit. Altho this new TV series already looks like a lot of things we’ve seen before, I am kind of intrigued to see how this series turns out. If the writing is bad, it could be unwatchable. But, then again, Ryan Murphy projects tend to start out strong … but, eventually, get tired and boring (both Glee and American Horror Story were pretty good for at least 3 seasons). Hopefully, Scream Queens won’t start out tired and boring but … we’ll see. I not super amped on this new show but … I’ll give it a chance when it debuts this fall. Will you?

"FIND YOUR SOUND. FIND YOUR FUTURE."
So … Zac Efron has a new movie coming out this summer but it’s not THIS movie that he has been filming lately with Robert de Niro that will feature a LOT of nekkid flesh. No, the movie that Zac will be starring in this summer is titled We Are Your Friends and it tells the tale of a down-and-out kid from the Valley named Cole Carter who wants to grow up to be a superstar DJ like Calvin Harris. Yes, this is really the plot of this feature length film. As you can see in the trailer embedded above, this movie will feature all of the usual things that you see in any given rags to riches story but with DJs. When I first heard that this movie was being filmed last year, directed by Max Joseph (of Catfish fame), I was under the impression that the story would be more … substantial. I mean, I get that I’m not the target audience for this movie and it very well may be a huge success but, yeah, this movie just doesn’t look very good to me. What do you think? Do you want to see Zac try to become a superstar DJ in We Are Your Friends? If so, you can see the movie in full when it opens on August 28.
