In early March, we learned that actress Sarah Michelle Gellar joined her husband Freddie Prinze, Jr. in the cast of the forthcoming second season of the Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels which, like the forthcoming Star Wars stand-along sequel/prequel film Star Wars: Rogue One, is set in the time period between Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope. Today we get to check out the first trailer for Star Wars Rebels season 2 which, as you can see above, prominently features Darth Vader. It’s unknown how much of Darth Vader we will see throughout the second season of the show but this trailer makes it appear that he will be the big bad of the entire season (much like The Inquisitor was the big bad during Rebels season 1). If Darth Vader (voiced by James Earl Jones) is really a main character this time around, then I predict the second season of Star Wars Rebels is going to RULE ALL! There has been a LOT of great Star Wars news lately, I’m really loving it all so much.
Today is 4/20 and, as such, the 20th anniversary release of the 1995 stoner movie Friday is being screen in theaters around the country today. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I plan on attending one of those screenings tonight. I think it’s pretty clear that I am a huge fan of screenings of classic movies in movie theaters and today’s screening of Friday is right in line with my fandom. I’m not sure how you plan on celebrating 4/20 today but my plan is to be at the movies. More »

Thus far, we’ve seen Jared Leto‘s pre-Joker transformation and the early stages of his post-Joker transformation for the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. Today we get our first, kinda blurry look at Leto in full costume and make-up on the set of Suicide Squad. The photo hasn’t been officially released … instead, this first look at his version of The Joker is a picture of a picture that Jared was showing off on his iPhone. As you can see below, it looks like the image of Jared as The Joker was taken during filming of the movie. Click below to have a looksee. More »
Back in March we learned that Prince Harry announced that he will be retiring from British military service in June so that he can focus on other royal duties but today we get to see a nice set of new photos of Harry on a recent military deployment in Australia. Altho the prince’s retirement is imminent, he still had this deployment in Oz to complete as well as a deployment in New Zealand next month before he formally retires in June. I previously lamented the fact that we wouldn’t be able to see photos of Harry in his military garb anymore … but thankfully, we still have a few photos to look forward to before his retirement in June. Enjoy.
A few weeks ago, Rihanna released a stunning new single titled American Oxygen that was released first on Jay Z‘s new music streaming service TIDAL before it was made available for purchase elsewhere. Rihanna also released the music video for American Oxygen exclusively on TIDAL … until now. The video for Oxygen has finally been made available for viewing outside of TIDAL which is great news because, IMHO, the song is one of the best that Rihanna has released in her entire music career. American Oxygen follows the release of her previous single Bitch Better Have My Money and it couldn’t be more different. This stirring mid-temp ballad is not only beautiful to listen to it is also educational in lyrical content. Click the embed above to watch the video for American Oxygen and see what you non-TIDAL subscribers (meaning almost everyone on planet earth) have been missing.

Universal just released a global trailer for Jurassic World that features a LOT of new footage from the film. This new trailer gives us our best look yet at some of the dinosaurs that will feature in the movie … and it is jam-packed with action.
