Find out Robert Kirkman's biggest regret from The Walking Dead television show.

Image
There is no doubt that The Walking Dead is a smash hit for AMC and bringing the hit comic to television was a smart idea.

Creator of The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman, was talking to the Hollywood Reporter and shared his biggest regret with the television series.

According to Kirkman, his biggest regret came very early on in the series at the end of season 1 where the group goes to the CDC office in Atlanta. It was in this episode that the group learns that everyone in the world is already infected and will turn into a walker once they pass away and that it is not just those bitten that turn into them. This was discovered much different in the comics.

Here is a brief excerpt from Kirkman’s interview,
"If I had to do it again, I wouldn't have done the CDC episode [at the end of season one]. It possibly gave away too much information and was such a big change very early on in the series. I feel like there might have been a better way to wrap up the first season. It ended up bein…

Excited about teaming up with his friend, Barry asks Oliver if he’d like to help him stop Ray Bivolo (guest star Patrick Sabongui), the meta-human Barry is currently tracking.

Brotherhood Workshop released another funny LEGO video for The Hobbit and they reveal one very big rule that Bilbo should follow in the films.
"Dragons might be intrigued by flattery and riddling words. But unfortunately for Bilbo, Smaug is much more interested in disposing of guests than he is with talking to them."

The Legend of Korra returns to television!

Image
GREAT NEWS KORRA FANS!

It appears that Nickelodeon has once again changed it's mind regarding the outlet in which they want to release their hit show The Legend of Korra. Starting Friday, November 28, 2014, The Legend of Korra will be premiering Book 4 from the beginning on the channel Nick Toons!

The first half of the season for Book 4 has aired on Nick.com and the Nick app and it appears that new episodes will continue to be released on schedule at these locations. However, if you want to rewatch the season on television this is your chance. Nick Toons will start from the beginning of Book 4 and will run through its entirety.

This has been a very confusing time for Korra fans trying to keep track of when the show will be airing and where. This newest change, although a welcomed one by many, does not make things any less confusing.

In the end let's all celebrate that Korra will be back on television where she belongs!

The Legend of Korra premieres on Nick Toons this Friday, Novemb…

First trailer for Pan is released! Find out the origin to Peter Pan's story!

The first trailer has been released for director Joe Wright's Peter Pan inspired film, Pan!

I have to admit that I really did not know what to expect from this film but the trailer looks pretty interesting. Yes, it's an origin story for Peter Pan but it still has some very interesting ideas and concepts shared in this trailer. The one thing that I am still not sold on is actor Hugh Jackman as the pirate Blackbeard. I don't know why but I am not liking his look all that much.
"Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by J.M. Barrie, the action adventure follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny—to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.   The film stars Oscar nominee Hugh Jackman (“Les Mis√©rables”) as Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”) as Hook; Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tatt…

The park is open! Watch the trailer for Jurassic World!

Universal Pictures has released the trailer for Jurassic World earlier than they had announced and it is absolutely amazing! Until now I have been cautiously optimistic about this film but this trailer has sold me. I don't want to spoil the trailer so I'll just say that seeing a fully functioning dinosaur park, Jurassic World, and seeing both new and old dinosaurs running around had me bouncing in my seat. I'm also excited to see what Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard bring to this film.

Final Fantasy IX - Black Mage Village acapella!

The String Player Gamer has released some great acapella video and in this one he tackles a video game theme that might not jump out to gamers at first. Listen in as he sings the "Black Mage Village" theme from Final Fantasy IX.
"Black Mage Village is one of those tracks that take a little time to grow on you, but once it has, you're stuck with it forever! This is one of my most favorite Final Fantasy 9 tracks, and in my opinion a great way to kickoff Final Fantasy 9 month!" Enjoy!

Rowling has claimed that it is Ron's hair. ... Interesting! Or how about the fact that Stanely and Ernie of the Knight Bus were named after Rowling's grandfathers. Find these facts and more in the great video below. How many of these 25 facts did you already know?

Fan creates a modern day trailer for Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back and it is amazing!

One dedicated fan, Cameron Arrigioni, recreated the trailer for Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back as a modern trailer and it came out beautifully! The music that Arrigioni chose is "Freedom Fighters" from Two Steps From Hell. It was odd watching Star Wars footage without John Williams' score behind it but the new music works and sets a great tone for the trailer. This trailer makes me want to sit down and rewatch the film and I know it will do the same for other fans out there as well. Enjoy!
