Some concept art for Gal Gadot's various Wonder Woman costumes in Batman v Superman was released recently and, overall, it's looking pretty cool.

Funny ladies

The Hollywood Reporter had a very entertaining roundtable discussion recently with six of the most popular female comedians on TV today...

Six of TV's most provocative female comedians — Amy Schumer,  Ellie Kemper, Kate McKinnon, Gina Rodriguez. Lena Dunham, and Tracee Ellis Ross — talk sexism, sex scenes, penis bags and why women need to stop apologizing: "I think people hate women. I don't think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling at them," says Schumer

The frank interview is very funny and not shy about discussing some of the horrible things they've encountered in their careers along the way.

Here is one of the videos featuring a discussion with Amy Schumer...

You can read the article here, which also includes several videos (like the one above) of the conversation as well.

The Bad Lip-Reading folks have done a mighty fine job on The Avengers, ya'll...

Thank you and good night

David Letterman aired his final Late Show last night and it marks the end of an era. He was the last of the original longtime late night talk show hosts (along with Johnny Carson and Jay Leno) and, of the three...he was my favorite.

Here are his final words to everyone before ending the show...

And also his final Top Ten list, with a variety of his favorite past guests...

He is a very funny man with a long history of hilarious sketches and entertaining interviews.

His show is definitely gonna be missed by many, especially me.

Pretty Stabby

FOX has released its first full trailer for the upcoming Ryan Murphy series Scream Queens...

I enjoyed most of Glee and all but one of the seasons of American Horror Story (Carnival was a mess), but, as much as I enjoy some of the cast, this looks a wee bit too campy for me.

However, I'll watch a couple of episodes first before I decide.

It won't kill me.

At least I hope not.

Showtime finally worked out its financial deal to bring back David Lynch to direct all of the new episodes of Twin Peaks (since he dropped out over money several weeks ago)...

So, it seems like we'll all get the full Lynchian experience with this new series of episodes, which is exactly the way it should be.

As Agent Cooper once said..."This must be where pies go when they die."

Spice of life

Variety has previewed their upcoming cover with Greg Berlanti (producer of The Flash and Supergirl TV shows among many others) and here is what he says about a possible crossover episode...

“The network has said publicly at this point they’re going to keep her to themselves,” says Berlanti. “I always approach the shows as a fan first, so I would love to see (a crossover). I think in success, all things are possible. But there’s a lot that would have to happen before everybody might say yes to that.”

We all know that if Supergirl does well...that crossover will definitely happen.

It's all about da' money.

Not so super

 photo cf821b7c-194f-4c45-801b-aaa1788ae4c8_zpstb6t6kw8.jpg

The first Supergirl extended trailer was released yesterday and, as much as I was looking forward to this show in the Fall, I'm a wee bit concerned now.

Here is the trailer...

My first impression was that it felt a little like an episode of Gossip Girl, if one of the girls just happened to be a Superhero. The dialog sounds kind of cheesy, Calista Flockhart (as much as I enjoy her) seems like she's just playing a bitchier version of Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada, and the effects don't appear to be that much better than old The Greatest American Hero TV show from the early 80's.


A second, shorter, trailer was also released earlier today and it was SO much focused more on the action without all the cheesy chatter. Unfortunately, CBS pulled it a few hours ago.

I want to like it. I want it to be good. I want it to be at least a little...super.

However, like The Flash and Arrow...I'll give it a couple of episodes in the fall and decide from there.


UPDATED: This review of the pilot gives me new hope.

Ex Machina

 photo 12d590a3-a54d-4d78-8407-3a94b3b7d255_zpsmb51lu7n.jpg

I saw the new movie Ex Machina last night and really enjoyed it. It's a very unique Sci-fi film with beautiful locations and simple, yet amazing, visual effects used for Ava, the A.I.

 photo ex-machina5_zpsdprxlk55.gif

I'm not sure how they managed to create the illusion that you could constantly see through Ava and into her wiring so clearly, but it looks very realistic.

Ex Machina is one of those films where you find yourself thinking you know where it's going and what's going to happen...until it turns things around a couple times on you, which is always a nice surprise.

It's definitely worth a trip to the theater to see it!

The Ant-Man cometh

 photo 25e32b48-cdae-4363-bf38-d3fec699788e_zps5ka6ku5s.jpg

The final poster was released for Ant-Man recently and, along with that, news that Ant-Man will be appearing along with MANY other Marvel heroes in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War movie...

Disney announced the cast for what could be the most comic book character-loaded Marvel movie yet. Captain America: Civil War will have (as it stands now) up to 16 comic book characters in its cast. It’s almost the whole Marvel Cinematic Universe — well, besides Thor and Hulk. 

 photo 803b6dcf-f2f5-4d84-a0c2-a5ba30612c5a_zpsogfjctux.jpg

But now onto the massive cast. Here’s who’s returning, plus the new players, along with their rumored roles: 

Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America, Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man, Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow, Sebastian Stan as Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson/Falcon, Paul Bettany as The Vision, Jeremy Renner as Clint Barton/Hawkeye, Don Cheadle as Jim Rhodes/War Machine, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Paul Rudd as Scott Lang/Ant-Man,  Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Emily VanCamp as Sharon Carter/Agent 13, Daniel Brühl who recently revealed he’ll be playing Baron Helmut Zemo (but Marvel does not confirm this in the press release), Frank Grillo as Brock Rumlow/Crossbones, William Hurt as General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, Martin Freeman who is rumored to be playing Everett K. Ross

Lordy...that really is just about everyone and it's also likely that Spider-Man is going to show up in this one too.

::mind blown::

I'm in.

FOX just released a trailer for the upcoming TV series, Minority Report. It takes place 10 years after the original movie was set...

I really enjoyed the movie and am not sure whether the series (based on this trailer) will hold up. It looks a little cheesy to me right now.

However, I'll definitely give it a shot when it comes on this fall and decide from there.

Cause I do love me some Sci-Fi.

The new Red Band trailer for the remake of National Lampoon's Vacation with Ed Helms and Christina Applegate was released today.

Although I'm not sure we needed another version of it, the trailer looks like a pretty funny/inappropriate update, with Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo (from the original movie) along for the ride.

Also, Chris "Thor" Hemsworth definitely stands out in his scenes.

Absolutely Anything

 photo e7be0c20-57d6-4662-a2f4-40799ec98026_zps1dhzkhwt.jpg

Simon Pegg plays a guy who is given the power to do Absolutely Anything by aliens to see if he'll actually use it for good, otherwise they'll destroy the planet. It's created by some Monty Python folks and has a great hilarity ensues.

It looks pretty funny...might just have to check it out.

Very sad news over the weekend...

Grace Lee Whitney, best known as Yeoman Janice Rand in the original Star Trek series, died on May 1 at her home in Coarsegold, Calif. She was 85.

Whitney was fired at the end of Star Trek‘s first season, but she went on to reprise her role as Janice in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. 

 photo c82d4fd5-cb1d-4199-b604-ac917cf115f2_zpsm84xlgs9.jpg

She also guest-starred in a 1996 episode of Star Trek: Voyager that commemorated the 30th anniversary of the franchise.

It was always nice to see her pop up in the various Star Trek films and TV shows over the years.

She will be missed.
