Shut up, Wesley!

Here is Captain Picard (with a little help from some creative editing) singing a holiday classic...



I brought me some.. Tea, Earl Grey. Hot.

I hope you all have a great holiday!

The first trailer for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes was released today...



I was pleasantly surprised by the first one...so am looking forward to seeing this as well.

The film swings into theaters July 11, 2014

Ripped from the headlines

Joe Manganiello really should workout at least a little bit before agreeing to do any magazine covers in the future.

It's almost embarrassing how out of shape he is.

Honestly.

Peter O'Toole

 photo 5ce720bb-6f99-4a0b-8aa4-02f0cf43d1b4_zps5d1209e8.jpg

Very sad news over the weekend...

Actor Peter O'Toole died peacefully Saturday in a hospital, his agent Steve Kenis said Sunday. He was 81. 

O'Toole's first major film role in the title role of T.E. Lawrence in "Lawrence of Arabia" in 1962 was "absolute genius," British film critic Richard Fitzwilliams told CNN. It earned him the first of eight Academy Award nominations and propelled him to world stardom.

O'Toole was presented an honorary Oscar by Meryl Streep during the 2003 Academy Awards. The engraving on the gold statuette reads: "Whose remarkable talents have provided cinema history with some of its most memorable characters."

He will be missed...

I'm definitely seeing this.

Jupiter Ascending trailer

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in the Wachowski's latest Sci-fi extravaganza, Jupiter Ascending. The trailer was just released and it looks pretty visually amazing, as most of their films do...

Channing seems to be rockin' the elf ears and a fresh up-do...so there's that.

Evolution

Joe Manganiello has a new book, Evolution, coming out and, as all famous writers do when their story is about to hit the streets, he has created a video to go along with it...



I remember Katherine Hepburn having a similar video when she released her biography.

The first trailer for Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released today...



Looks like the last one, but with different villains.

Rinse. Repeat.

I'll probably still see it anyway.

Wonder-ful!

 photo 69625f56-57e1-44bc-8324-493e4992b650_zpsa658f885.jpg

I'm very excited that they are adding Wonder Woman to the upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice movie....

Warner Bros. has announced this morning that Gal Gadot, most well known for appearing in the "Fast and Furious" films, has landed the role of Wonder Woman/Diane Prince in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. 

In a statement, Zack Snyder stated: "Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character." 

Batman vs. Superman will feature the return of Henry Cavill as Superman, facing off against Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. Also starring Amy Adams, Diane Lane and Laurence Fishburne, the Zack Snyder-directed Batman vs. Superman hits theaters on July 17, 2015.

I think this indicates that Warner Bros. is FINALLY gearing up for a Justice League movie at some point soon.

It's about GD time...

Paul Walker

 photo 4fe8d605-22ab-4971-87bb-00aad9d9cb46_zpsb2fbd53e.jpg

Very sad news over the weekend...

Actor Paul Walker, who shot to fame as star of the high-octane street racing franchise "Fast & Furious," died in a fiery car crash in Southern California on Saturday. He was 40. 

Walker was in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT, driven by a racing team partner, that slammed into a light pole and burst into flames in an office park in the community of Valencia in Santa Clarita, about 30 miles north of Hollywood.

Such a shock and for someone so young...even more distressing.

He will be missed.

Smells Like Sulu

 photo b1a93b23-6a3a-48e2-b3f5-739ba9a2b16e_zpsf4c5a070.jpg

Star Trek's George Takei has a signature scent now available for pre-order,..

George Takei, famous for his role as Sulu on "Star Trek", as well as his more recent role as an Internet-conquering social-media star, has joined the ranks of Bruce Willis and One Direction by offering his own branded perfume. The spray-on cologne is dubbed "Eau My," a punny reference to his catchphrase, "Oh myyyyy." 

Takei teased fans, asking them to guess the name of the new fragrance. His Facebook followers offered up some real gems, including "Old Space," "Takei Me Now," and "Red Shirt." The cologne is described as having the following laundry list of smells: mandarin zest, Italian bergamot, fresh ozone, night-blooming jasmine, white freesia petals, sensual woods, crystallized amber, soft skin musk, and vetiver. 

I think it's hilarious and I hope he makes millions from it.

Plus, I never tire of hearing George say it,  especially here.,,

Burning up

This little film opened over the weekend and it managed to make a little money...

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has a global opening weekend gross of $307.7 in 65 territories. That’s 45% better than the $211.8 million worldwide that The Hunger Games grossed in its opening weekend. 

I think it's going to do just fine.

This guy is actually doing that...



At night in Central Park, that thing would probably scare the crap out of just about everyone, like it did in these videos.

Now, that's the version I'd really like to see.

Well, Man of Steel was released on DVD this week and just in time for the Honest Trailer overview of the film.

If you haven't seen the movie, but intend to...then don't watch this (lots of spoilers).

If you have seen the movie, well...enjoy the hilarity.



His two Robin Hood-Dads...very funny.

I didn't care much for X-Men: First Class...but I'm hopeful that, with the addition of the original cast, things will take a much better turn.

At least I hope it does...

However, I'm not looking forward to the giant spiders scene.

Marcia Wallace

 photo Marcia_zpscb87ba43.jpg

Very sad news over the weekend...

Marcia Wallace, the voice of The Simpsons' Edna Krabappel who earlier played the quick-witted receptionist on The Bob Newhart Show, has died. She was 70. 

"The odds of getting on a series long enough to be remembered are infinitesimal," she told The New York Times in 2010. "A lot of what I’ve done, I would not have done without Carol Kester." 

She also won an Emmy Award for her voice work as Ms. Krabappel in the 1992 Simpsons episode "Bart the Lover." After the elementary school teacher gives Bart a month of detention, he gets his revenge by responding to her newspaper singles ad.

I loved her on The Bob Newhart Show and always enjoyed seeing her pop on various game shows over the years after that.

She will definitely be missed, but fondly remembered by many.

Empire Magazine has released some pics from the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past movie that they're featuring in an upcoming issue, including this one with Hugh Jackman who, obviously, has had a recent encounter with a machine gun before relaxing with a beverage.

Hopefully he considers the whole "Beer and Liquor...never sicker" saying before continuing to mix his beverages.

Otherwise, he could end up spending the night spewing from all existing holes in his body.

Stop it now!

Every year, Ellen sends her assistant Amy to haunted houses (because she is easily scared). This year, she had Amy go through one with Andy, her executive producer on the show.

Andy basically used Amy as a human shield...and it's entertaining.


I hate haunted houses and "Stop it now!" would likely be one of many colorful responses I'd have if I had to go through one.

It does look...endless

Well, they must be dipping pretty far down into the well to find movies to remake these days. Here is the trailer for the updated Endless Love and, honestly, it looks nothing like the original...mostly name only. The trailer feels more like a stalker movie than a love story.


I prefer Brooke Shields and Martin Hewitt's version over this any day.

And that says a LOT.

Old Man

Well, I made it to Chicago and finally got an internet connection. I'm tired, but relieved to have the moving part over with. A 15 hour drive is no fun in my book...

Zach Snyder (director of Man of Steel) released this animated short that follows 75 years of Superman from his first comic, through various TV/Film and other incarnations. It's pretty cool...even the Super Friends make an appearance.



I sure could have used Superman's help moving.

He must have been busy saving a cat from a tree.

It's been almost exactly three years this week since I moved from Los Angeles to Atlanta. And this weekend...it begins again.

I'm really going to miss Atlanta and all of my friends here, but hopefully they'll be coming up to visit once I'm settled in.

I don't get the internets connected up there until Tuesday,  so I'll likely be off the grid for a few days.

Hopefully not off the road.

Have a great weekend everyone!

The Quarterback

Tonight's Glee tribute to Cory Monteith is gonna be a big box of downers.

"I've never seen a crew that can't continue shooting because they've left the room sobbing. It was very hard," says Murphy, who wrote the episode with fellow executive producers Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan. "I struggled even working on it, because what you're seeing is what they felt about not just Finn, but Cory. It's amazing performances across the board. ... Everybody went into it with a lot of love.

"The episode opens with the cast singing Seasons of Love from Broadway's Rent. Among other musical highlights, already released online: The Pretenders' I'll Stand By You (performed by Mercedes); James Taylor's Fire & Rain (Sam and Artie); Bruce Springsteen's No Surrender (Puck); The Band Perry's If I Die Young (Santana); and Bob Dylan's Make You Feel My Love, sung by Rachel Berry (Lea Michele, Monteith's real-life love). 

Proceeds from online music sales will benefit Project Limelight, a Canadian theater camp Monteith supported.

I'm gonna be a mess during the show...I just know it.

They're all gonna laugh at you

The marketing team behind the upcoming remake of Carrie put together a little scare for folks in a coffee shop to see how they would react to a girl losing her cool and causing people and things to fly about....

Sony and MGM’s Carrie opens in theaters October 18, so the studios thought up this fun prank video in the hopes of it going viral. 

The video poster asks, “What if telekinesis was real? How would you react? Our hidden camera experiment captures the reactions of unsuspecting customers at a New York City coffee shop as they witness a telekinetic event.” 



The construction worker-guy seemed like he was either about ready to soil his shorts or start a rumble with that pole he was holding.

Both would have been entertaining.

Scaring Evelyn

I know it's mean to scare people like this, but it's way funnier when it's not happening to you. In his defense, he did capture these over the course of an entire year. So it's not like he tormented her all in one day (which probably would have killed her).

Also, this girl has a natural horror movie scream that will just make you laugh...and possibly pee a little while doing so.



OMG...hilarious!

I'm terrible.

The Mane Event

The first picture of Meryl Streep from the upcoming movie/musical Into The Woods was released today.

Here is a bit about the story:

Meryl Streep ventures “Into the Woods” as the Witch who wishes to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored. The humorous and heartfelt musical, a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, explores the consequences of the quests of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, and the witch who cast a spell on them.

It looks like the curse took away her manicurist and Wella Balsam as well.

The film also stars Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt (who worked with Meryl in The Devil Wears Prada), and Anna Kendrick. It opens Christmas 2014 and is being directed by Rob Marshall (who directed Chicago).

Well, it seems that the last two "farewell tours" just weren't enough...

Cher is ready to hit the road on the "Dressed to Kill" tour, her first trek in eight years.

The legendary performer made the announcement Monday morning on NBC's "Today" show, telling the hosts that it won't be easy. "The road is horrible, but the concerts are great," she told Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie. "I understand why guys in bands tear up hotel rooms and throw TVs out the windows, because it's a very lonely place. The only time you have fun is at the concerts."

The tour will visit 49 cities across North America starting March 22 in Phoenix and will include stops in major markets including Washington D.C., Philadelphia, NYC (Brooklyn and East Rutherford, NJ), Seattle and Los Angeles before wrapping up July 11 in San Diego.

Cher's last tour lasted three years, included 605 shows, and grossed $250M, according to Wikipedia. (The Guinness Book Of Records says the gross was actually $394M.)

I, for one, want Cher to keep doing as many "final" tours as she's willing and able to do.

You know why?

Because she's CHER, gad'dammit!!
