New Game of Thrones Season 5 poster has Tyrion Lannister staring down a dragon!

We've been warned that the hit HBO show Game of Thrones will start to deviate from the books and the newest poster for Season 5 of the show certainly shows us one way it will!

This newest poster has Tyrion Lannister staring down one of Daenerys' dragons! This could just symbolize his meeting Daenerys in the fifth season or maybe he does have a brush with one of the dragons. We'll have to wait and see.

Are you excited for the fifth season of Game of Thrones?

Image
Casting news for CBS' upcoming Supergirl show have slowly been rolling in but TV Line has reported two very big castings that DC fans out there just may love!

CBS has just cast Dean Cain and Helen Slater for unknown guest starring roles on the upcoming show! Dean Cain played Clark Kent / Superman on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman from 1993 to 1997 and actress Helen Slater played Kara Zor-El / Supergirl / Linda Lee in the 1984 Supergirl film!

This actually isn't the first time that these two will be guest staring in a modern DC show as both appeared on the hit show Smallville that followed the adventures of Clark Kent as he grew up into the hero Superman. "Slater in the role of Clark/Kal-El’s Krypton mom Lara, and Cain as the immortal Dr. Curtis Knox."

It was recently reported that there is a chance that Superman would appear in this new Supergirl show but it seems as though it would just be a "guest appearance". I think fans will loose th…

Original Green/White Ranger, Jason David Frank, responds to the new dark and gritty Power Rangers fan film.

A few days ago a new fan film for the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers surfaced that took the franchise to a much more dark and gritty place. Fans seem to be split on it but the overall reaction seemed to be very positive and a lot of people I know loved it, including myself.  The 14 minute film was produced by Adi Shankar and directed by Joseph Kahn and starred James Van Der Beek and Katee Katee Sackhoff.

One of the original cast members of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, Jason David Frank who played Tommy Oliver aka the Green / White Ranger, has stepped forward and offered his thoughts on this new fan film. In his video response he even mentions that he was approached to be in the film but had to pass on it. He shares why he turned down the role and what he thinks about it and even if you do not agree with him you have to appreciate the respectful nature of his response.

Man At Arms: Reforged creates Katarina's daggers from League of Legends!

Image
Man At Arms: Reforged is back with a wonderful video where they set out to create Katarina's daggers from the video game League of Legends. These daggers are truly deadly and should be considered short swords for how big they are. One thing I can say about them is that they are truly beautiful both in game and in real life. The shape of them combined with the detailed engravings really make them stand out! Watch the video below to watch the entire creation process. Enjoy!

Funny things that are done but you don't see in super hero films.

Image
I came across these two videos thanks to Kotaku and could not stop laughing. Featuring a Grand Theft Auto super hero named "Pigman" (a parody of Batman), you get to see all the boring things that a super hero has to do in order to have those awesome moments that we see in films. Moments like climbing stories of stairs in order to have that cool "standing on a rooftop" moment or figuring out how to get your super hero logo to burn on the side of a building. Normally films cut right to the exciting part but these films open up the boring and funny reality that goes into making them.

I know that these two videos will crack up super hero film fans and comic fans alike.

Detailed video analysis breaks down the amazing animation and gameplay in Nintendo Wii's updated Punch-Out!

Punch Out! was one of my favorite Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) video games groing up. Playing as Little Mac and fighting my way through the game was always an enjoyable experience. When Nintendo remade the game in 2009, it gave fresh life into an old game with stunning visuals and excellent gameplay.

In this video Daniel Floyd analyzes the animation and gameplay in the 2009 version for the Nintendo Wii. One of the things that he points out is how incredible it feels to fight as Little Mac against his opponents.
"Game animators face a major difference from film animators: player control. When the animator does not know what sequence the player will perform their actions in or even where they'll place the camera, they have to design their animations to meet every possible circumstance. On top of that, animations need to feel responsive, even more than they feel realistic - yet they must still look good on screen. The HD Remake of Punch Out!! for the Wii created good solu…

Meanwhile, Kanan plans a different kind of attack against the Empire: to take control of a communications tower and broadcast an anti-Imperial, pro-rebel message. They’re ultimately successful, but the Inquisitor and Tarkin take Kanan captive in the resulting battle.  This week, the Recon team wraps up their look at lighting in Star Wars Rebels. In this episode, Tarkin’s arrival at Imperial HQ was lit to match the Emperor’s landing and descent on the Death Star in Return of the Jedi.…

New Power Rangers fan film takes the Rangers to some awesomely dark and gritty places!

Image
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers were a huge part of many people's childhoods (including mine) and the love for them has remained strong to this day. Thanks to producer Adi Shankar and director Joseph Kahn, a new 14 fan film has been released that will blow Power Rangers fans' minds!


This new fan film takes a look at the Rangers when they are a little older and takes things to a really dark and gritty reality that is absolutely amazing!  It stars Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) and James Van Der Beek (Dawson's Creek).

This film centers around the Pink Ranger Kimberly (Katee Sackhoff) being brutally interrogated by traitor Red Ranger Rocky (James Van Der Beek) who is trying to find out where Green Ranger Tommy is. The video will show you what happened to the various Rangers as they got older as well as some other surprise guest character cameos.

This video is absolutely amazing and makes you look at the Power Rangers in a new way. Realizing that these teenagers were we…

New Teen Titans Go! clip features Aqualad from Young Justice talking to Teen Titans' Robin.

Image
This Thursday's episode of Teen Titans Go! will feature a crossover that many fans did not see coming. The characters from the hit DC show Young Justice will make an appearance on Teen Titans Go! and offer up some advise on how a super hero team should really run.

Teen Titans Go! took the spot of Young Justice despite Young Justice having a very dedicated fanbase and getting great reviews from critics. After 2 seasons (46 episodes) Young Justice was taken off the air in 2013. Though it still has viewers of all ages, Teen Titans Go! is noticeably aimed at a younger audience.

This special clip from Thursday's episode features Aqualad from Young Justice telling Robin of the Teen Titans that they need to get more serious and that they are only bringing down the name of super heroes by acting so childish.

Teen Titans Go! will air on Cartoon Network this Thursday at 6pm.

Transformers vs DC / Marvel fan trailer will make you WANT to see a new Transformers film!

Image
This amazing trailer shows us what happens when the Decepticons come to Earth and threaten to take Earth's resources and enslave it's people and it is is up to Earth's super heroes, the Avengers and the Justice League, to stand in their way and stop them. Will Earth's heroes be able to stand toe to toe with this powerful new threat or will they have to call in a little help from someone who has dealt with the Decepticons before?

Created by  Alex Luthor, this is another jaw dropping crossover trailer that features DC, Marvel, and Transformers. I wasn't sure if the film footage woud lend itself to a smooth trailer for these franchises but I have to say that I am really impressed with how well cut this trailer was And it was very clever combining the tesseract (aka the cosmic cube) with the allspark! Watch the trailer below and enjoy!

Funny comic shows us Bruce Wayne's (aka Batman's) future if his parents had died in different ways.

Batman's origin story is among the best known in comic history. His parents' brutal murder is what led young Bruce Wayne to grow up and become Batman. But what if Bruce's parents had died a different way? What would Bruce's future had looked like? This great comic from artist Daniel Irizarri show us possible outcomes from different deaths of the Waynes. They are all extremely funny but I may have laughed hardest at the pollution death outcome.

New "Art of the Scene" video shows the creation process of the Ghostbusters' Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!

Image
In CineFix's newest "Art of the Scene" video, fans are taken behind the scenes of the hit 80's film Ghostbusters! This new video puts the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man front and center and focuses on how the film brought him to life.

The film's iconic ending scene is only iconic because of how successful the Stay Puft Marshmallow was. However, it seems that Stay Puft didn't always have the film makers' faith. Bringing him to the big screen was a sticky process and  almost didn't happen.

This amazing video takes you through the creation process and the effects that brought Stay Puft to life.
"The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man stomping through New York is one of the most memorable scenes in movie history. Go behind the scenes of Ghostbusters, and see how the gooiest movie got on the road to its rampage."
