Empire Magazine's latest issue (hitting newsstands tomorrow) has a lot of new information on the upcoming Batman v Superman movie and a few new pics...

“What we are doing is ground up all the way. It is one giant story,” Snyder explains. “The first thing we had was the Justice League concept. The other movies, in a way, have to support that. That is our Wonder Woman, our Aquaman. They have their own creative concepts that supports them, but they do serve Justice League in the coming together of those heroes. I want all the other directors of the other films to be able to stretch their legs and do what they want, but at the same time there is a big interconnected universe."

“He has been Batman for 20 years. All the history is there. Was there a Robin at one time? Possibly. We want to assume that Batman has reached this point in his life and career as a superhero, and Superman represents a sort of philosophical change. He is a paradigm shift for Batman: ‘I’ve been fighting criminals all my life, trying to find justice, and now I am confronted with a concept that is transcendent to me.’ In the face of Superman, a man robbing a bank doesn’t matter. He’s having a crisis of conscience. ‘Am I really just a vigilante who stalks the alleys of Gotham?"

Bobbi Kristina Brown

 photo e8532365-011f-4921-8445-adf0effde21c_zpsahhegqzq.png

Very sad news this weekend...

Bobbi Kristina Brown, the little-girl-lost daughter of the late, legendary Whitney Houston, died Sunday in an Atlanta-area hospice, nearly six months after she was found unconscious in her Georgia home. 

She was 22. 

She never regained consciousness to explain what happened before she was found Jan. 31, face down and unresponsive in her bathtub.

So tragic and eerily similar to the death of her mother.

The latest trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 was released this week...

Hopefully this final part will be more exciting that the previous one. If I have to sit through two hours of people talking about doing something again (without really doing anything), I'm may have to throat-punch the movie.

I'm just saying...

The first full trailer for the next James Bond movie, Spectre, was released today...

It looks bondy...very James Bondy.

That's a good thing.

I'm in.

Hot dog

I'd need a much bigger fridge if I wanted to do this myself when it's hot outside.

Mental note.

Road Wars

If Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Mad Max: Fury Road movie were combined, this is what we'd get to see...

The effects are pretty cool and, if it did would likely make a bazillion dollars.

Damn Good Pie

If you haven't seen the 2007 movie Waitress with Keri Russell, definitely add it to your list. It's a wonderfully funny and touching small film with a big heart.

A new play based on the film is being produced and Sarah Bareilles has created some beautiful songs for it, including this one called "She Used To Be Mine", which she performed recently on NPR.

I love this song and have played it countless times, which I'm sure my neighbors "really" appreciate.

Now if I just had some pie, all would be well in the world.

The show opens on Broadway in April 2016.

Signs of the Apocalypse

Entertainment Weekly's latest issue features a first-look at Bryan Singer's upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, which is filming now.

The costumes are a bit 80's spandex-y and the new Storm has quite an up-do and cape-necklace thing going on.

It kinda reminds me of original Buck Rogers or Battlestar Galactica costumes.

Interestingly cheesy.

Sibling Revelry

The first trailer for the upcoming Tina Fey and Amy Poehler comedy Sisters was released today...

They are both hilarious and the movie looks like it could be a lot of fun around the holidays (the movie opens December 18th).

Pluto Natch

NASA's New Horizons mission has finally reached Pluto and sent back the new image above.

However, after taking a closer HD shot of the planet a few minutes later, they are now just a little concerned...

Comic-Con Surprises

 photo tumblr_nrc8ldKwUY1s6a2abo2_500_zps1idjmrpg.gif

Comic Con 2015 just ended and, with it, came the release of a few unexpected movie promotions. First off...the first full length Batman v Superman trailer, with our first look at Wonder Woman.

It looks pretty awesome and it was great to see Wonder Woman in action.

I couldn't be more there opening weekend (March 25, 2016).

 photo 7edecbd7-5806-41c0-827e-d1f85c15329e_zps5yguuf9f.jpg

Then the Star Wars team released a behind-the-scenes overview on the making of The Force Awakens, emphasizing the use of practical sets and creatures (rather than all CGI)...

It was very cool to see so many of the original cast members and locations after so many years. If this sneak peek is any indication, the movie could be amazing.

Then, after a bad pirated version was released last night online, the studio behind The Suicide Squad decided to just release a clean copy today.

I don't know much about this comic book series, but I do know that Jared Leto's creepy Joker and Ben Affleck's Batman are also in that should be interesting and worth checking out.

Omar Sharif

 photo 31837762-371a-40bb-adf3-6ec24db86405_zpsg4gkrbay.jpg

Very sad news today...

Omar Sharif, by the far the most iconic film star ever to emerge out of the Arab world, has died at the age of 83.

Although Sharif burst onto the international stage in David Lean’s Lawrence Of Arabia in 1962, he had achieved fame in the Arab world almost a decade earlier in Youssef Chahine’s searing 1954 drama Sira’a Fil Wadi.

It was his performance as Sherif Ali opposite Peter O’Toole’s piercing blue-eyed Lawrence that would catapult Sharif to a global stardom no Arab actor achieved before or since. He cemented his status as one of the decade’s great cinematic faces when he re-teamed with Lean for Doctor Zhivago in 1965.

He will be missed.

The first trailer for the upcoming Goosebumps movie was released today...

I don't know anything about the book series, but since it appears to feature a gang of angry Travelocity gnomes....

I'm in.

The movie opens October 16th.

Who beefed?

Netflix has released their first full trailer for the upcoming series Wet Hot American Summer and it looks like it could be a hoot and, quite possibly, a hollar...

Netflix has dropped the first full trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp, the prequel series to the cult hit 2001 pic. The aptly titled eight-episode series starts with the first day of camp in 1981. 

We get the first look at new cast additions Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Jon Hamm and Jason Schwartzman along with returning stars from the movie, Elizabeth Banks, H. Jon Benjamin, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Janeane Garofalo, Nina Hellman, David Hyde Pierce, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, AD Miles, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, Paul Rudd, Marisa Ryan, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter.

It's got a pretty amazing cast and I have a feeling hilarity will likely ensue.

I'm in.

Movie Magic

 photo 469e1991-804c-4763-ba89-e72fa616b5e5_zpsb6kegzy8.jpg

Terminator Genisys opens today, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Khaleesi from Game of Thrones and a couple other folks. The trailer looks pretty good and, Arnold's waxen face aside, I bet it'll still do pretty well at the box office this weekend.

There is another movie that opens today as well, but the name escapes me.

 photo eaa1fb99-6f5b-4d42-b8c8-9e248bb0ec1f_zps8vggftgd.jpg

ABS-olutely can't remember.

 photo 746cab90-28f9-4fb3-bc20-a3649acb2678_zpsejvta0nb.jpg

Stripped from my mind.

I think it's about really big magicians and stars Channing Potatum, Joe Manfrendjinsinjin and Matt Boner.

Hopefully their movie has a very good plot and lots of subtle product placement...
