Convention Review - ConnectiCon 2015! Experience this years convention now.

Image
(My apologies that this took longer than expected to get posted.)

Avid convention goers can get very picky about what conventions they attend and why. However, when it comes to ConnectiCon you are sure to always have a good time. As a multi-genre convention, it welcomes fans of all genres and has panels that are suited for everyone. I have attended ConnectiCon for the past few years but this year I had the privilege of attending as Press and I have to say that I had a great weekend.

ConnectiCon is held in the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Connecticut which is a wonderful location for this convention. The convention center itself is large enough to host the convention and all of its attendees and the best thing is that you never get that cramped vibe that some other conventions may give off. Secondly, you are in the heart of Hartford and are surrounded by hotels to stay in and places to eat and drink. It's these kinds of things, mixed with the warm environment inside …

Informative video shares the comic history of Batman vs Superman.

Image
Fans have loved to speculate on who would win in a battle between their favorite super heroes and villains. However, one of the biggest debates has been between Batman and Superman. We'll get to see the two finally battle on the big screen in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice but it should be noted that these two have had a long and complicated history together.

Comics Explained created the video "The History of Batman vs Superman" that takes fans through the complicated history of the two characters and explained the many times that they have actually gone toe to toe. Be warned that this in't a flashy video as it is more informative and walks you through their comics past. Whether you are watching to just refresh your memory or a new fan looking for knowledge, you'll definitely enjoy this video and learn quite a bit. Enjoy!

Cosplay Closet - London Film and Comic Con cosplay music video!

Image
Let's hop over the great pond and see how the cosplayers over in London have a good time at a convention. London Film and Comic Con was held recently and Sneaky Zebra was on hand and able to catch some wonderful cosplays for their newest music video. I always like Sneaky Zebras videos but I have to give credit to the cosplayers themselves who breath life into these videos. London cosplayers definitely stepped up this year. Great work!

Check out this fantastic Marvel fan film that pits the new female Thor against a zombie Hulk! Created by Milton Pool of Miltonius Arts, this piece is 6 months of hard work that came out great. The animation is smooth and the video overall is extremely fun to watch. I really like the animation style as well. I hope that more shorts are created in the future. Enjoy!

First official Deadpool poster is released with an amazing logo and adult humor!

Image
Here it is! The first official poster for Tim Miller's Deadpool has been released!

This poster is exactly what the film needed as a first poster. It has Deadpool's logo, which looks great as it is a little worn and beat up, as well as a subtle sexual joke thrown in in the tagline. "Witness the beginning of a happy ending." Well done. If this is just the start of the marketing for this film, you know we are in for a wild ride.

If you haven't watch the redband Deadpool trailer be sure to watch it now. It's hilarious!

Deadpool will be in theaters on February 12, 2016.

Real Fake History - Disaster on Klendathu (Starship Troopers)!

Image
The newest episode of "Real Fake History" is out and it brings up back to 1997's Starship Troopers! I was a fan of this film and loved the concept (I still need to read the original book) but this first hand account from military experts and soldiers who fought in the war had me cracking up.
"The Federation's assault on the Arachnid planet Klendaathu was a disaster that cost the lives of 308,563 human troops. When you practice on human targets and take hot co-ed showers every day, how can you be good at killing bugs?"

Image
The second episode of "Minute Match-Ups" has been released and it pits DC and Marvel famed archers against each other. This video has Green Arrow (DC) fighting Hawkeye (Marvel) to determine who the better fighter is.

Which comic archer do you prefer? Who do you think would win in a battle between the two? Do you think the battle results would be different in different environments?

New gameplay trailer for Star Wars: Battlefront shows that you'll be able to fly the Millennium Falcon!

Image
Earlier today I posted a trailer that revealed a fantastic teaser trailer for Darth Vader in Star Wars: Battlefront, Now, I have an amazing gameplay trailer that will not only put gamers in awe but make them fall off their seat when they see that you can play as Han Solo in the Millennium Falcon!

The more I see of this game the better it looks. It should truly be incredible. The gameplay footage shown here comes from the Fighter Squadron game mode which will pit the Rebel forces against the Imperial forces.



There are a lot of ships seen here; X-Wings, A-Wings, TIE Fighters, TIE Interceptors, the Millennium Falcon, and even Boba Fett's Slave I! I am very curious now to find out if you'll be able to pilot the Slave I.

Star Wars: Battlefront will be released on November 17, 2015 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Watch Lexus' "Slide" hoverboard in action in the official video!

Image
Not too long ago Lexus had released a teaser trailer for their own hoverboard called the "Slide". The Slide uses liquid nitrogen and magnets, along with a specialized track, to hover above the ground.

Although this is not the perfect hoverboard that we saw in Back to the Future 2, (it does need a special track after all) it is incredibly impressive and a lot of fun to watch. The film promised us hoverboard in 2015 and here it is!

Find out more details on this hoverboard in my earlier article and on the Lexus Slide website.

Never before seen Shrek story reel from 1997 reveals Chris Farley as the voice of Shrek!

Image
Shrek was a box office hit for DreamWorks Animation and with Mike Myers voicing the title character, fans everywhere laughed throughout the entire film. What most fans may not realize is that another famous comedian held the role of Shrek before Myers, actor Chris Farley. Before Farley's tragic death he had recorded between 80-90% of his part for the film. All this was of course scrapped and rerecorded with Mike Myers. Shrek eventually hit the theaters in 2001.

Thanks to Consequence Of Sound, you can now watch s story reel that features Farley's voice as Shrek. You'll notice that Farley uses his own voice for the role and it is much different than what was delivered by Myers. Above you can see a piece of art from 1997 that features what Shrek could have looked like had Farley not passed away.

The world's ultimate game of Hide and Seek is over. Boba Fett has won.

I often see images of Carmen Sandiego (Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego) and Waldo (Where's Waldo) together but this is the first time that I have seen them be caught by the galaxy's top bounty hunter Boba Fett (Star Wars). This is absolutely brilliant!

The Doctor and Clara run from an explosion in a new Doctor Who Season 9 promotional photo!

We were just thinking our desktop photo could use a little update…THIS JUST IN! #DoctorWho
Posted by BBC America on Monday, August 3, 2015

Check out this fantastic new wallpaper image for Doctor Who Season 9 that has just been released by BBC America on their Facebook page! It features the Doctor (Peter Capaldi) and Clara (Jenna Coleman) running away from a massive explosion on what looks to be a foreign planet. Both characters have on a few pieces of new wardrobe and the looks on their faces are priceless. The Doctor is staring straight ahead looking determined and Clara is looking at the Doctor in awe or admiration. This actually defines their characters / roles pretty well!

What do you think they are running from? Do you think we'll see this in a Season 9 episode or is this just a promotional photo?

Kyle Chandler returns as Friday Night Light's Coach Taylor for a funny movie theater PSA!

Image
The Alamo Drafthouse has just released one of the best movie theater PSAs (Public Service Announcement) that I have seen. Actor Kyle Chandler returns in this PSA to reprise his role as Coach Eric Taylor from the show Friday Night Lights and it is glorious. I was a huge fan of Friday Night Lights and I was sad to see it end. In this PSA Coach Taylor is trying to give his big speech only to be interrupted by people talking, texting and taking pictures.
"You talk and text. You ruin Coach's speech. We punt you out of the theater."

TV Show Review - Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp! Was the first day as good as the last?

Image
Welcome back to Camp Firewood, campers! It has been 14 years since the hit film Wet Hot American Summer was released starring a who’s who of actors before they struck it big. Set in the early 80s on the last day of summer camp, this film is filled with all sorts of campy humor that is sure to make you smile and laugh throughout.

Netflix has brought the film back with a new original series titled Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. The series is eight half hour episodes and will grab your attention right from the start. The whole season takes place on just the first day of camp so the episodes are titled according to the time of day; “Campers Arrive”, “Lunch”, “Activities”, ect. This show takes the humor of the film and cranks it up to a whole new level. From the start you’ll notice that Netflix, amazingly, got the entire original cast to return to play their original roles. This of course means that you have actors like Paul Rudd, Elisabeth Banks, Marguerite Moreau, and Bradl…

The Ghostbusters cast visit a children's hospital in full costume wearing all new proton packs!

GHOSTBUSTERS Cast Pays Visit To Children's Hospital http://t.co/wVSfVPXIgnpic.twitter.com/C2zPhT7ypw — Superhero Feed (@SuperheroFeed) August 2, 2015
Yesterday the cast of the new Ghostbusters being directed by Paul Feig, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, paid a visit to the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston in full costume.

More than just providing a truly nice and memorable experience for the children that they visited, the team wore what seem to be updated proton packs! Check out the various photos to see what the updated packs and wands look like. This is very interesting. I wonder if these updated packs are completely replacing the ones revealed by Paul Feig or if the team updates their packs at some point in the film itself.
