Huntress will be making her debut on November 28th. While her current role on the show may only be for 2 episodes, it was announced by executive producer Andrew Kreisberg that her role will eventually expand.
"It’s two episodes for now but we definitely hope we see more of her. We certainly set her up as an interesting foil for Oliver and we’re excited to see where else we can take her." On the show Huntress will portray Oliver's (Green Arrow) mirror opposite. While both come from damaged pasts Oliver has chosen to use his darkness for good while the the Huntress has chosen to use her darkness for revenge. When asked about Huntress' costume, Kreisberg stated,
"For the Huntress—she's basically wearing a cape and a purple bikini in the comic. That wouldn't play so well. So her costume is much more func…

Giant Gollum sculpture goes fishing in Wellington Airport! [video]

Image
Those walking into the Wellington Airport in New Zealand are in for a big surprise.

The Wellington Airport has hung up a 40 foot long sculpture of Gollum fromPeter Jackson's films The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The sculpture was created by Weta Workshop and was built over a span of four months. Gollum will promote the upcoming The Hobbit film while reminding film makers that New Zealand offers exotic locations for films.

The sculpture is quite detailed and features Gollum sticking his head under water and reaching for one of three fish that are hanging by him. In the video below you can watch as the Weta Workshop team constructs the sculpture and transports it to the airport. It is a fantastic start to finish film of the sculpture being made.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Briefing - Air New Zealand safety video [video]

Image
Air New Zealand has created a video that may solve the problem of boring airline safety videos that are shown before flights take off. Being the official airline of fictional world of Middle Earth, Air New Zealand created a video that people will gladly sit and watch.
"Air New Zealand partnered with WETA Workshop on a brand new Hobbit inspired Safety Video. It features cameo appearances including Sir Peter Jackson." The video is titled 'An Unexpected Briefing' and although the acting in it may be questionable (which may make the video funnier and better), it is definitely fun to watch. Keep a watchful eye and see if you can catch all the fun cameos and references within the video!

First look at the Wicked Witch in Oz: The Great and Powerful!

Image
We have our first look at the Wicked Witch of the West from the upcoming film Oz: The Great and Powerful. The film is set to be a prequel to The Wizard of Oz where we get to see how the Wizard actually gained his title.

The film will star James Franco as Oscar Diggs, who is transported to Oz by his hot air balloon. The three witches in the film will be portrayed by Michelle Williams (Glinda), Mila Kunis (Theodora), and Rachel Weisz (Evanora).

Although we officially do not know which witch, Theodora or Evanora, will become the Wicked Witch of the West, judging from the photo released (below) and her name, my money is on Evanora played by Rachel Weisz.

Oz: The Great and Powerful
opens March 8.

Dalek smokes a cigar in unaired vintage commercial! [video]

Image
Years ago, tobacco advertising was an extremely big deal. All the big names in show business were tied to a tobacco advertisement in some way. Now it seems that even aliens from the planet Skaro were getting in on the action. An unaired cigar commercial has surfaced that features a Dalek from the British sci-fi show Doctor Who. What makes it better is that in the commercial, which is for Hamlet Mild Cigars, the dalek comes across a stressful scenario and as a result decides to smoke a cigar. The exact year this ad was made is unknown but it can be estimated between the 70's-80s since that is when Hamlet Mild Cigars were around.
Watch the unaired commercial below and let me know what you think in the comments.

It's known that Disney just about owns everything on Earth (they even acquired certain Marvel rights recently) but with their recent announcement they now own everything going out to the Outer Rim territories. That's right, Disney has officially announced that they are purchasing LucasFilm, along with the Star Wars franchise, for  $4 billion. That means that Leia is now a Disney Princess! (The horror!) Disney didn't stop there though. They went on to announce that they will release a new Star Wars film, currently titled Star Wars: Episode 7, by 2015! From the title we can see that they are looking to have this film take place after Return of the Jedi and continue the Star Wars saga.

Doctor Who - The Whovian Prayer

Image
Though this may be controversial to some because it has to do with changing a religious prayer, I still think it was funny enough to share.

Changing the words to the 'Our Father', one fan has created 'The Whovian Prayer' that Doctor Who fans can now recite whenever they please.
