New Star Wars Episode VII villain is revealed!

Image
Another big reveal has surfaced for the upcoming film Star Wars: Episode VII and this time it focuses on the possible villain for the film!

POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!

A new piece of concept art has surfaced that is said to be the new villain of the next Star Wars film, the Sith Inquisitor! In the art piece you'll also notice that the Sith Inquisitor is holding the cracked helmet of Darth Vader. Very interesting! I wonder if that will somehow play out in the film. The Sith Inquisitor is being described as:
"It’s true that the main villain of Episode VII is a Sith Inquisitor. He’s tall and thin and terrifyingly creepy, with glowing red eyes to match his red lightsaber. He’s got some robotic upgrades, like Vader – but no mask. The cybernetic bits weave in and out of him. He’s got a human upper lip, a steel jaw… and the robotic hand that JJ Abrams posted an image of. As LR mentioned, we’ll see flashbacks in this movie which will show us Princess Leia as a young girl and Vader’s invol…

New photo from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 shows Jennifer Lawrence in her new warrior outfit as Katniss Everdeen.

Image
Katniss Everdeen is sporting her new Mockingjay look in the newest photo to be released from the upcoming film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. This new look for Katniss, played by actress Jennifer Lawrence, is her warrior look and as you can see her iconic mockingjay pin has been changed from gold to black (seen on the strap along her left shoulder). I have to say that I really like this look for Katniss. Do you like Katniss' "Mockingjay" look? Are you excited for the next film?

The Doctor is anxious for Doctor Who to return on August 23, 2014 and as you can see here the Twelfth Doctor, Peter Capaldi, has interrupted a BBC indent for the show Tumble to give his fans a message!

Image
Check out these two concept art pieces for Han Solo from the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII! These new photos gives fans a glimpse of what actor Harrison Ford could look like in the new film. The first photo has Han sporting a trench coat and his handy DL-44 blaster while the second has Han wearing something similar to what we saw him in on the planet Hoth in Empire Strikes Back. There's no word as of yet whether the film will be heading back to Hoth or perhaps another cold planet but seeing these concept art pieces is a lot of fun!

Stormtrooper helmet designs for Star Wars Episode VII are revealed!

Image
Images have been found that show off the new look for stormtroopers in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars: Episode VII. It appears as though more than just the X-Wing was inspired by the concept art of Ralph McQuarrie for the upcoming film and that is not a bad thing.

The first image shown is the standard stormtrooper helmet that feels like its had a natural evolution. I really like the clean and sleek look of this helmet a lot and there are a few differences to the older helmets. The eye lenses are separate like they were in the original films although they look like they may be a little larger. A black frame around the lenses give it a look of a single lens. In this photo we see a breather vent on the left side but there is no breather vent on the right side of the helmet. The black mouth area near the bottom is a mesh material, most likely so that the actors can breath easily while wearing the helmet.

The second photo is a helmet for a trooper currently being referred to as the "Jungl…

The NeverEnding Story receives a new, updated "The Hobbit" style trailer! [video]

Check out this recut trailer for 1984 film The NeverEnding Story by YouTuber The Unusual Suspect. The new trailer is styled after the newest trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies and really gives the classic film a new feel. I remember watch The NeverEnding Story many many times as a child and I always loved it even though that one scene always scared me. I'm sure fans of the film as a child know what scene I mean. This trailer makes me want to go rewatch it now. Enjoy the updated trailer!

Alternate ending to The Walking Dead Season 4 has Rick dropping the F Bomb in the last scene! [video]

Season 4 of AMC's The Walking Dead ended with a completely awesome moment with Rick Grimes as he says, "They're going to feel pretty stupid when they find out … that they're screwing with the wrong people." However, comic fans know that the comic version of this line was a lot more badass and that it dropped the "F Bomb" instead of "screwing". Hearing it in its original version would have really made a statement for the scene.

It's now been revealed that the show did film an alternate ending where Rick says the original comic line and it is perfect! Though I understand that you cannot drop the "F Bomb" on cable it would have made the scene that much cooler and powerful (and I don't normally say that about cursing).

You can watch the alternate ending in the video below. Let me know if you think the scene changes with the added curse.

Hyrule Warriors art book reveals concept art for a "female Link"!

Image
Hyrule Warriors is quickly approaching and a few pages of the Hyrule Warriors artbook as been revealed with some surprising information. The biggest surprise comes from concept art that appears to be for a "female Link" character. At the moment it is not know whether this is purely concept art or if this character made it through to the final form of the game. Rumors are saying that it is the former.

This female Link character has the same overall look as our hero Link with a green tunic (which had a few variations as you can see), high leather boots, and the infamous Link cap. Do you like that the company played with the idea of adding a female Link-type character to the game? Would you want to see this character enter the franchise in some way in the future?

The sequel to Disney's Frozen is coming to fans as multiple books!

Image
When Disney's Frozen was released it was an instant success. Everyone knew there was a sequel coming and Disney had announced that there was a sequel in the works. What they didn't say was that there was another film in the works.

It has been announced that there will indeed be a sequel to the hit Disney film Frozen but it will be coming to fans as a book. Not just one book, but several chapter books from the publisher Random House.

Fans can expect to see the first book on store shelves on January 6, 2015. It has also been announced that the books being released are intended for a younger audience at ages around 6 to 9 years old and will take place after the events of the film. The titles of these books will be Anna & Elsa #1: All Hail the Queen and the follow up book will be Anna & Elsa #2: Memory and Magic.

Watch the Star Wars Rebels short “The Machine in the Ghost”! [video]

Star Wars fans can now watch the all new Star Wars Rebels short "The Machine in the Ghost"!
"In “The Machine in the Ghost,” a special Star Wars Rebels short, the rebels’ Ghost starship is under attack by a wave of TIE fighters. Hera pilots the craft, while Kanan tries to blast the Imperials from the Ghost’s gunner. While they do evade and shoot down several TIEs, it’s up to astromech droid Chopper to finish the job – even if he’s reluctant to do so." I can already tell that I am going to love Chopper. He seems just as expressive as R2-D2 if not more so. This show is going to be a lot of fun to watch unfold.

Star Wars Rebels is scheduled to premiere in October 2014 as a one-hour special on the Disney Channel wi the full series airing on Disney XD.

Paramount Pictures announces plans for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 along with a release date!

Image
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are here to stay! This weekend the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film earned a surprising $65 million dollars in North America. It seems that despite mixed reviews fans were curious enough about the film to go check it out. (I personally enjoy it and you can read my review here.)

The Turtles jumped to the #1 spot ahead of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and earned about $20 million more than Paramount Pictures had expected. To celebrate the great opening weekend, Paramount Pictures has officially announced that they will be releasing a sequel with a tentative release date set for June 3, 2016.

 At the moment there is no word if director Jonathan Liebesman will come back for the sequel but we do know that Michael Bay will come back as producer along with screenwriters Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec to write the film.

This is the funny reason why the eagles can't solve everything in The Lord of the Rings! [video]

The Brotherhood Workshop has provided an answer to a popular fan question / theory concerning the trip taken by the Fellowship in J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings.
"Many have asked, "Why didn't the Fellowship use the eagles to fly into Mordor?" In this video, I give my over the top take on why. Although walking into Mordor is never simple, it is more discreet." As always with the Brotherhood Workshop, the video is filled with laughs and Easter eggs. Enjoy!
