New featurette for Star Wars Rebels talks about the return of clones from Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Image
The clones are back! Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels will be bringing back some familiar faces from Star Wars: The Clone Wars and I for one and very excited! Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new video where executive producer Dave Filoni and voice actor Dee Bradley Baker talk about the return of clones from The Clone Wars and the fan reaction that it has caused.
"Clone troopers were first introduced in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones as highly-skilled combatants that followed any order without questioning its morality. But that has slowly changed over the years, most notably with the character of Captain Rex in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Now everyone’s favorite clone is set to make his debut in Star Wars Rebels, and alongside him are two more Republic veterans who also don’t exactly see eye-to-eye with the Empire.  Dave Filoni, executive producer of Star Wars Rebels, talks at length about the grizzled soldiers that Ahsoka Tano sent the Ghost crew to look for and who will eventu…

Find out how long Spider-Man has been active in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

Image
Marvel fans have been waiting a very long time for Spider-Man to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe and at long last it is going to happen! Spider-Man will be making his Marvel debut in Captain America: Civil War but thanks to a subtle line thrown into Ant-Man we know that Peter Parker is already out there doing his thing as Spider-Man.

The big question now is how long will Peter Parker have been Spider-Man by the time we see him in Civil War? Well thanks to Heroic Hollywood we may have an [unconfirmed] answer!
"Peter Parker has been active as Spider-Man for a little over a year during the events of Captain America: Civil War. Just like Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Spider-Man is considered a myth, an urban legend. In the upcoming 2017 Spider-Man standalone film, Peter Parker will have been active as Spider-Man for two years." I had figured it to be somewhere around 6 months but I think it is brilliant that it'll be around a year and that Spider-Man is s…

Gal Gadot almost had a role in Man of Steel giving her a much shorter run in the DC Extended Universe.

Image
Actress Gal Gadot is about to enter the DC Extended Universe as the heroine Wonder Woman in the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. However, it has come out that her role in the DCEU could have been much different and much shorter.

While speaking to an Israeli website, Gadot mentioned how she was initially offered a role in Zack Snyder's Man of Steel.
"When I was a month pregnant with (my daughter) Alma, I got an offer to be the evil Superman character. If I wasn’t pregnant I’d take the job, and there’s no way they would take me now to be Wonder Woman." I agree with Batman-News who says that it sounds as though Gadot was offered the role of Faora in Man of Steel. It makes the most sense and I could see her taking on the role.

What do you think Gadot would have been like as Faora? I, for one, am glad that she is taking on the role of Wonder Woman instead and think that she will completely nail it.

Jenna Coleman confirms she is leaving Doctor Who after season 9.

Image
Early this morning, Jenna Coleman appeared on a Radio 1 talk show in England and confirmed a recent rumor concerning her role on the hit British sci-fi show Doctor Who. While talking to the host, Nick Grimshaw, Jenna confirmed that she is indeed leaving Doctor Who after season 9.
""It's been in the works for a very long time," she said, "[Writer] Steven [Moffat] and I sat down a year and a half ago and tried to work out the best place to do it and tell a really good story. "We're not going to give any details but it will happen at some point this season... We worked out a really good story arc out so hopefully people will love it.""
By the looks of it, there is the possibility that Jenna could be leaving mid-season. We have seen companions do this before and it's how she came on to the TARDIS after all.

Jenna will be leaving Doctor Who to play the character of Quenn Victoria in a new show titled Victoria that tells the story of a young V…

Ghostbusters started filming in New York City and I was on hand to get fun photos!

Image
One of the great things about living by New York City is that every once in a while you come across something amazing. I've recently done my share of background work in New York City in various films and television shows which has been a lot of fun but this had me extra excited. I was able to find the new Ghostbusters film filming near Columbus Circle this past weekend and was able to take some really fun photos.

I've been a huge fan of Ghostbusters since I was a little kid so getting to see the new Ecto-1 and Ecto-2 in person was very exciting for me. The cast's double were also on hand driving around the Ecto-1 which was cool. It seems as though they were getting footage of the Ecto-1 driving around the city and in this case around the Columbus Circle area. They did a few loops and would come back to their parking spot each time.

Not much was happening in the way of action on this particular day and I didn't get to see the actual cast but that is okay with me. As a …

New featurette for The Peanuts Movie shows how the film will stay true to Charles M. Schulz's art.

Image
I'm excited for The Peanuts Movie but at the same time I've loved Peanuts for so long that I wouldn't want the movie to be bad and tarnish the name of the iconic franchise. The trailers have seemed fun and light hearted and now a new featurette has been released that shows what the developers of the film have gone through to make sure that they stay true to Charles M. Schulz's artwork. Bringing a 2D image to a 3D object on screen while maintaining the essence of the art is no easy feat but it looks as though they have done it. Check out the featurette below and enjoy!



The Peanuts Movie will be in theaters on November 6, 2015.

NBC brings a Heroes Reborn interactive fan experience to Times Square, NYC to give fans new powers!

Image
In anticipation of the show's return on September 24, 2015, NBC put together a Heroes Reborn interactive fan experience in Times Square in New York City, NY. This fan experience took fans into the world of Heroes and gave them a "power" of their own. The building set up for the experience had show banners and large posters of all the new characters coming to the show as well as Noah Bennet to promote the characters and their driving force.


The experience was set up into two sections and fans could choose to do both or just one. The first section, which had a longer but worth while line, gathered people on line for a 4D interactive experience. A sign from the Department of Homeland Security was present that stated that all evolved humans were subject to genetic screening which set the mood of the world you were walking into. At the front of the line there was a large television playing a Heroes Reborn trailer and character bios. You were then brought into a small screeni…

Honest Trailers - Furious 7!

Image
Yesterday Screen Junkies released an all new Honest Trailer focuses on the hit film Furious 7. This couldn't be better timed as I watched the film for the first time last night and enjoyed it quite a bit. (Yes, I know I am late to the party.) Screen Junkies did a great job with this particular video pointing out things that will surely make fans laugh while still giving the film the respect that it deserves because of the passing of actor Paul Walker.
"Relive the furious 7th installment in the car racing turned heist turned mega-action film franchise known as The Fast and the Furious!"  Enjoy!

Marvel reveals the official synopsis for their upcoming Netflix series Luke Cage!

Image
After some rumors and speculation, Marvel has officially released the synopsis for their upcoming show Luke Cage that will be airing on Netflix.

Official synopsis:

"After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city–forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury." This synopsis may seem vague but it confirms Harlem as the setting for the show while giving fans Luke's driving plot for the series. I am very interested to see how this show shapes up and what kind of story they will be looking to tell with it. Are you excited for Luke Cage?

The Sanderson Sisters are back! The iconic witches from the 1993 Disney film Hocus Pocus returned this week at Walt Disney World to kick off the first celebration of the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for 2015. What made this appearance even more exciting is that it is the Sanderson Sisters' first appearance at a Disney park.

The witches appeared in a musical event titled "Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular Show" and was held in front of Cinderella's castle. The sisters were joined on stage by other iconic Disney villains such as Dr. Facilier, Oogie Boogie, Maleficient, Jafar, Captain Hook, the Evil Queen, and many more. Together they cast a spell across the Magic Kingdom and kicked off the Halloween season!

New poster and trailer are released for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2!

Image
Lionsgate has released an all new poster (seen above) and trailer for their upcoming film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2! The poster features Jennifer Lawrence in her new, red Mockingjay outfit with a mockingjay perched on her shoulder. The trailer on the other hand is titled "For Prim" and focuses solely on the relationship between Katniss and her younger sister Prim. For fans that read the book, you'll know the significance that this trailer holds. For those that didn't read the books, this may put their train of though on a route that could give away a major spoiler. The trailer itself is nice and has a lot of sentiment while showing footage from throughout the franchise but I don't think that it was a success for me personally. I'm more interested to see things about the new film than I am to see things from the previous ones.

Film synopsis:
"With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in t…

Disney's live action The Jungle Book trailer brings the animals to life!

Image
The first official trailer for Disney's live action adaptation of The Jungle Book has been released! The trailer gives fans a good look at fan favorite characters and as well as some new ones created for the film. You'll also get a sense of how the film might handle the various animals talking to Mowgli.
Film Synopsis:
"Directed by Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves. But Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat.   Urged to abandon the only home he’s ever known, Mowgli embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery, guided by panther-turned-stern mentor Bagheera (voice of Ben Kingsley), and the free-spirited…

Take a look at the Superman movie kill count in this fantastic video!

Image
I recently posted a great video showing off the Batman movie kill count presented by Mr. Sunday Movies. Now he has returned with another video, this time looking at the Superman movie kill count! This video takes a slightly different approach and counts all the times that Superman has killed someone himself or has allowed someone to kill another person in his presence. Watching the "kill count" in the lower right hand corner during the Man of Steel scenes will certainly crack you up.
"How many times has Superman killed or allowed someone to die? Well that's entirely subjective. Which means this video is wrong. ENJOY!"

Things get serious for Rocky Balboa and Adonis Creed in the second trailer for Creed.

Image
The second trailer for the upcoming Rocky spinoff film Creed has been released and things have gotten serious. This new trailer gives fans a much better look at the film and where the characters of Rocky Balboa and Adonis Creed stand in the film. We sadly find out that another character from the Rocky series has passed and there is no sign of Rocky's son in this film so it appears as though Rocky is alone at this point in his life when he comes across Adonis. Then you have Adonis himself who is looking to make a name for himself while battling the fact that he is in his father's , Apollo Creed, shadow in the boxing world and must prove himself worthy of the name "Creed".

Film synopsis:
"Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart nam…

Watch the entire event for The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses - Master Quest sneak preview at Nintendo World!

Image
The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddess (an orchestral event celebrating the beautiful music from the game franchise) is heading back to New York City this October for a new show The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses - Master Quest! However, before the event comes to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Nintendo World Store in Manhattan held a special sneak peek event for fans. Nintendo World Store did this last time Symphony of the Goddesses came to New York City and held their sneak peek on September 14, 2012. I was lucky enough to attend that event three years ago and had an amazing time.

Unfortunately, I was not able to attend the Nintendo World sneak peek event this year on September 4, 2015 but a friend of mine was on hand and got some incredible footage of the entire event. As you'll see in the video the event consisted of a fun Ocarina Workshop with the talented ocarina player David Ramos, the ensemble performance (which consisted of six musicians), and a meet a…

If you look at the back of her costume the costume designer pointed out that you will find Quake's symbol on her back (as well as on the gauntlets.

Do you like this new look for Skye/Quake? Are you excited for season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.?
