Quicksilver runs and Professor X explains the mission in 2 new clips from X-Men: Days of Future Past! [video]

Two new clips have been released for the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past! From what I keep seeing of this film I know that I will really enjoy it and I expect a lot of fans out there to as well.

The first clip showcases Quicksilver's mutant ability of speed. The video shows off some nice new footage that should make Quicksilver fans happy including some footage of the Magneto prison break! 

The next clip has (older) Professor X instructing Wolverine on the mission at hand and what he must do to get the X-Men back together. It seems like this will be a great moment in the film.

Check out this amazingly well done, and funny, parody of Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" titled "Talk Nerdy To Me"!

There are some fun cosplays that pop up in this video and the dance sequences made me laugh (in a good way). Enjoy!

And what's the core in your wand? I think that ours match

In a surprise move Lionsgate has announced that they are teaming up with Saban Brands to develop an all new Power Rangers film! The new film will be focused on the original Power Ranger team, the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

As a fan of the original series myself this is pretty exciting news. I used to love the Power Rangers when I was little.

The head of Saban Brands, Haim Saban, stated,
"Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level.” Lionsgate has been doing very well recently and I think that they could do a great job with this franchise. The Lionsgate CEO, Jon Feltheimer, further added,

New clip from How to Train Your Dragon 2 is released and rips off the music from Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince's quiddtich scene! [video]

DreamWorks has released another clip for How to Train Your Dragon 2 and it is titled "Baby Dragons". It's a cute and short clip scene that shows the gang trying to ride some young dragons but the most interesting part for me is the background music. The music is very soft yet if you listen carefully some people out there may recognize the music from the Harry Potter franchise. I don't mean that the music sounds similar either. It is ripped straight from the Harry Potter films. Below the How to Train Your Dragon 2 clip I have shared a clip from Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince. Skip ahead to the 2:34 second mark to see the film's quidditch scene and hear the exact music from the How to Train Your Dragon 2 clip but this time loud and clear.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 will fly into theaters on June 13, 2014.

Cade and Brent from 1980s Something sat down and reviewed the new official upcoming LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters set (Number: 21108)! LEGO Ideas was formally known as LEGO Cuusoo but recently was rebranded.

It should also be known that one of the reviewers, Brent Waller, was actually the original designer of this set. So he has some pretty great things to share with viewers.

This new LEGO set will cost $50and will surely have Ghostbusters fans running to the toy stores. Will you be picking up the set?

Could Star Wars Rebels be connected to Star Wars: Episode VII?

Image
Disney may be looking to create a more unified Star Wars universe now that it has officially gotten their projects underway. 

Representatives from the website Movie Cricket were about to attend a Star Wars convention in England and had the opportunity to speak to actor John Morton who played Luke Skywalker's gunner Dak in Star Wars: Episode VI - The Empire Strikes Back as well as a body double for Boba Fett. The actor apparently had a lot to say about the upcoming show Star Wars Rebels and the film Star Wars: Episode VII. “Rebels is the key. Rebels will provide the link to bring in the continuity from Clone Wars, the Original Trilogy and the Prequels to enable LucasFilm and Disney to tee-up ‘Episode VII’. If you want my informed opinion, it will enable ‘Episode VII’ to leapfrog over the whole trilogy."

"The key that is going to make this work is Rebels. Rebels will set up and point the direction for ‘Episode VII’." "The characters they are creating in R…

The Legend of Zelda's Temple of Time gets recreated in HD to mirror Unreal Engine 4 and it looks magnificent! [video]

So far Nintendo's Wii U hasn't gotten it's fair share of attention from developers as it deserves. One animator decided to change that and focused on one of Nintendo's flagship franchises, The Legend of Zelda. Animator Michael Eurek recreated the Temple of Time from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time using 6 months of hard work along with Maya, Z-brush, and Photoshop to show gamers out there what The Legend of Zelda could look like in HD if more games on the Wii U used the Unreal Engine 4. The result is simply jaw dropping. The Temple of Time looks absolutely magnificent. I really hope that Nintendo sees this video and takes note of how stunning The Legend of Zelda can look in HD.

The great minds at Robot Chicken have created a new skit that centers around the terrorist organization Cobra from the G.I. Joe franchise. The original G.I.

This funny sketch has Cobra trying to create their own PSA ads with very funny results.

Star Wars: Episode VII working title is revealed!

Image
There are been a lot of great news surrounding the Star Wars franchise lately and there is no reason to stop now!

A working title has been revealed by Ain't It Cool News for Star Wars: Episode VII and it is pretty interesting. The working title for the next chapter in the Star Wars saga is "The Ancient Fear". The source that Ain't It Cool News spoke to said that this title "refers to Max Von Sydow's villain who makes Pazuzu look like a p*ssy!"

At first glance the title seems a little weird but if there is a great story behind it then it could be pretty cool. Of course this is only a working title so it could actually change at any time. What do you think of this title? Do you think that "The Ancient Fear" is a title worthy of the Star Wars franchise?

Watch the first extended trailer for Fox's new Batman show "Gotham"! [video]

Fox has just released the first official extended trailer for their upcoming Batman show Gotham and it looks pretty good. I have to say that it looks better than I expected. Gotham is an origin story for the entire city and takes place during a time that has been unexplored until now. Bruce Wayne is still a child and Detective Jim Gordan is just starting his career. As this trailer will show you, just because Batman is not around yet does not mean that the villains aren't. Watch as Penguin, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and The Riddler rise up from their small beginnings to become legendary villains in the DC Universe.

Above everything else this is going to be a cop show with hints of DC Comics thrown in to keep fans interested. I can see it progressing to be a really good show though. Lets just hope that Fox treats it right and gives it a chance. (And shows the episodes in the correct order! Something they always seem to struggle with.) Will you be tuning in to watch Gotham?
