Conan O'Brien plays Mortal Kombat X with the NFL's Marshawn Lynch and Rob Gronkowski!

Image
Conan O'Brien changed up his "Clueless Gamer" sketch this week by inviting two professional football players to come on the show and play against each other. Conan sat down with Seattle Seahawk's Marshawn Lynch and New England Patriot's Rob Gronkowski to play the new Mortal Kombat X.

Conan, as usual, provides some great commentary throughout the video but the absolute best part of this video, and the part that will have you watch as 12 minutes of it, are the reactions from football players to the violence seen in the game's gameplay. Enjoy!

Release years confirmed for Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX!

Image
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be the first film in a new trilogy of films for the Star Wars franchise released by Disney. Though it is still too early to say whether these new films will be good or bad, the footage that we saw in the first trailer and concept art that we have seen look great.

""As one of the few people allowed to visit the set during filming….and one of the fewer who’s seen most of the footage…I can assure the millions of Star Wars fans who have spent the last decade hoping for a new movie this one will be worth the wait. And it’s only the beginning of a new era of …

Funny fan film shows that modern lightsaber battles are getting out of hand with these new lightsaber designs.

Image
With the introduction of the new "crossguard saber" in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer, it seems that modern lightsaber battles are beginning to get out of hand.

This funny fan film will show fans that new, inventive lightsabers are beginning to get out of control and have become a sort of "one upping" contest between wielders to have the best saber. Enjoy!

Fantastic video details and talks about what currently is and is not Star Wars canon.

With Disney buying LucasFilm and turning the Star Wars Expanded Universe into "Legends" and wiping much of the slate clean of what is canon for Star Wars, many fans are still trying to figure out what is canon and what isn't. This amazing video from YouTuber "Mr Sunder Movies" goes into great detail to explain just that. This video will explain what is and is not canon, what happens to all those "Expanded Universe" stories now, and what possible details from the "EU" may make it into the new canon. Enjoy!

Paul Feig announces the cast for the Ghostbusters reboot!

Image
It looks like Paul Feig has chosen his cast for the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot that is scheduled to start shooting this summer.

Actress Melissa McCarthy has signed on to be in the film and negotiations are officially underway to sign on Kristin Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Though the latter three have not yet signed on, they are expected to when terms can be made. Unless something drastic happens during negotiations, this is the new cast.

This news will surely split the Ghostbusters fandom with those that are excited for the all female team and those that think this is too much of a change from the original. There is of course the third camp of fans who feel (females aside) that the casting itself is also laughable.

I am not yet sure how I feel about this news but I can say that I am officially nervous for the franchise. I absolutely love this franchise and at the moment cannot see this cast delivering the same stellar performance that the original cast did. Between the c…

20th Century Fox releases the first teaser trailer for Fantastic Four!

Image
20th Century Fox has just released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming film Fantastic Four. The trailer has a slower, darker tone to it and is a true teaser as it only gives fans a glimpse of the team and their abilities. I'm interested to see more but I have to say that this seems like a weaker teaser trailer. Especially for a film that is already fighting an uphill battle with fans because of some changes made to the characters' origins and story. I will say though, even though you do not get a proper front view of him, that The Thing looks pretty cool. I like the jagged edges and more rock like appearance this time around. I'm hoping that as more footage is released that this film will start to look really cool.

Fox is moving forward with its X-Men television series.

Image
For some time rumors have been circulating that Fox was looking to bring the X-Men to television with an all new series. Now we finally have some solid news on the matter for The Hollywood Reporter.

The Hollywood Reporter is stating that from their source they have learned that Fox is moving forward to bring the Marvel team to television. Evan Katz and Manny Coto from 24 are set to produce while Patrick McKay and JD Payne from Star Trek 3 are on board to write the show.

Of course, just because Fox is moving forward with this idea does not mean that it is officially happening just yet.
"Fox studio counterpart 20th Century Fox owns the rights to the film franchise (with seven features already released based on X-Men characters). While conversations to bring the franchise to the small screen are under way, sources indicate a deal is far from complete with Marvel — which owns the comic rights — still having to sign off on the deal." At the moment there is no word on which charac…

Could Nintendo's Mario franchise have an exact timeline? This detailed video makes an amazing argument claiming it does!

When it comes to the Super Mario Bros. video game franchise from Nintendo most people seem to not think about the franchise having an overall central story or timeline. However, one dedicated fan has created this comprehensive video that shows fans that that could be wrong.

This video sets out to prove that the Mario franchise, including game such as Yoshi's Story and Donkey Kong, has a timeline and walks you through the timeline in chronological order with exact details of why the games fit where they do. This could all be a big coincidence but the fact that this all works is a lot of fun and for now, I'll believe it.

This video is extremely cool and if you are a gamer it is a must watch! Enjoy!

Emma Watson is cast as Belle in the upcoming Disney film Beauty and the Beast!

Image
Today it was revealed that actress Emma Watson will be starring in the Disney live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast!

Emma Watson may be best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films but since then she has grown into a successful actress and activist. Beauty and the Beast is currently under leadership from director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn). Rumors seem to have this adaptation having a darker tone than the upbeat and lively 1991 animated Disney Classic and I think that could be a great thing for the film.

I'm a big fan of Emma Watson's and believe her to be a wonderful actress but I am nervous that her casting may mean that Belle will not be French. Will Watson use a French accent or will the film put in some small changes to the character?


Post by Emma Watson.

From Emma's announcement on her Facebook page, it seems like there may be still singing in the film which will be fun. Do you think Emma Watson would …

Marvel released some pretty big information today by announcing that actor David Tennant (Doctor Who, Broadchurch, Gracepoint) will be joining the Marvel family! Tennant has been cast in the upcoming Netflix series AKA Jessica Jones as the villain Kilgrave!

Tennant will be joining the cast along side Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones and Mike Colter as her husband Luke Cage.

Honest Video Game Trailers: Resident Evil!

Smosh Games lays into the hit video game Resident Evil in their newest Honest Trailer and it is hilarious. Though the game was a success and spawned several sequels and films, you cannot deny that it had some of the worst voice acting in a video game ... ever. I laughed pretty hard throughout this video and I know that gamers out there will laugh as well. Enjoy!

Jaw dropping achery video shows what a true master of archery looks like!

Over the years archery in films has become a glorified art that always match up to the real art of the sport. This jaw dropping 6 minute video shows off archer Lars Andersen completing archery feats that most would have thought impossible. With years of practice Lars has become a true master of archery. Watch as he debunks many archery concepts and shows off skills such as shooting in mid-air, close quarter combat, catching a bow from mid-air and firing it, fire multiple arrows (with accuracy) at once, hit in oncoming arrow, split an oncoming arrow, and soo much more.

Watching a video on archery may not sound that exciting but I highly recommend watching and can say that it will definitely keep you entertained. The skills shown here are amazing.

Below the video Lars Andersen expands on some of the myths and truths about archery that are brought up in the video.

An archers with a quiver on his back is a movie icon which is widespread throughout the world.
