Disney has released the first full trailer for director Ava DuVernay's epic imaginative adventure A Wrinkle In Time. I remember reading the classic 1961 book by Madeleine L’Engle when I was a kid and I loved it. I haven't read it in years, but I'm excited about seeing the movie, it looks great! I especially love the colorful visual style used to bring the story to life.
The story "takes audiences across dimensions of time and space, examining the nature of darkness versus light and, ultimately, the triumph of love. Through one girl’s transformative journey led by three celestial guides, we discover that strength comes from embracing one’s individuality and that the best way to triumph over fear is to travel by one’s own light."
Here's the synopsis:
Meg Murry and her little brother, Charles Wallace, have been without their scientist father, Mr. Murry, for five years, ever since he discovered a new planet and used the concept known as a tesseract to travel there. Joined by Meg’s classmate Calvin O’Keefe and guided by the three mysterious astral travelers known as Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, the children brave a dangerous journey to a planet that possesses all of the evil in the universe.
The movie has a great cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peňa and introducing Storm Reid, with Zach Galifianakis and Chris Pine.
A Wrinkle in Time is set to hit theaters onMarch 9, 2018.
Entertainment Weekly has released four new magazine covers and photos featuring several of the film's heroes and villains. They also ask four burning questions that fans will want answers to.
The first cover above features Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) and asks the question, "Could Rey fall to the dark Side?"
The second cover has Finn (John Boyega) and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) with the question, "Can Finn get his mojo back?"
The third cover includes Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo (Laura Dern), and it comes with the question, "Can Poe get along with his new boss?"
The final cover features Luke (Mark Hamill) and Leia (Carrie Fisher), and it asks one of the biggest questions... "Will Luke & Leia reunite?"
During an interview with the magazine, writer and director Rian Johnson talks about the history of the light and dark side in the franchise. It's clear that his job is not to protect these characters as the story progresses, but to put them in harm’s way:
“There’s a history in Star Wars of the attraction between the light and the dark, whether it’s the story of Anakin basically turning from this sweet kid and seeing his seduction to the dark side, or even with Luke. Even though you never really believe he’s going to go over to the dark side, the whole revelation of ‘I am your father’ has to do with Vader and this darkness that [Luke] thought he could just dismiss as ‘That’s the bad guy. I don’t have any of him in me.' Suddenly he realizes ‘No, I come from him. I have quite a bit of him inside me.’”
There's a lot of exciting stuff to look forward to! There's been a lot of cool photos and footage released for this movie, but we still have no idea what to expect from the story! Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15th, 2017.
Check out the remaining covers below along with eight cool new photos!
When staring in a movie like Justice League there are a ton of awesome props that I'm sure many of the actors would love to keep and take home with them. Well, Ben Affleck admits in an interview with Stephen Colbert that he stole a Batarang among other things from the set of the film.
You'd think a studio like Warner Bros. would just let it go and let the actors keep something cool from the film that they got to work with, but that isn't the case at all. After the prop department constantly called Affleck questioning him about where some of the props had gone, the studio ended up sending him a bill, and the actor says, "Turns out Baterangs aren't cheap." Affleck doesn't say, but I wonder how much they billed him for! Regardless, it's not like he can't afford it.
You can watch the interview between Affleck and Colbert below. The talk of stealing the Baterang starts at the 6:14 mark.
Oh Yamcha. Probably the worst fighter out of all the Z-Fighters in Dragon Ball Z. So many jokes are made about him, and there’s not much defense. He gets taken out by a nameless generic grunt and throughout all of Dragon Ball Z never wins a fight (except apparently on King Kai’s planet, maybe?). Heck, in the Buu Saga, he has given up fighting entirely. He knows he’s not good. If you’ve watched Dragon Ball you know that he used to be a fearsome fighter, but something happened between the two series.
As much as Yamcha sucks, he now has his own spin-off series manga appearing in Shonen Jump Plus. Dragon Ball Side Story: The Case of Being Reincarnated as Yamcha (translated from Dragon Ball Gaiden: Tensei-shitara Yamcha Datta Ken) is about a Japanese high school student who mysteriously becomes reincarnated as Yamcha. The student is able to use his knowledge of the Dragon Ball manga to influence events to keep Yamcha from dying all the time and train to become the strongest fighter. I’m going to let that sink in for a moment. This boy plans to change the story of a manga he has already read so that he can turn the weakest character into potentially the strongest. Manga doesn’t get much better than that.
Looks like Yamcha survives the Saibamen this time.
The series is written and illustrated by Dragon Garow Lee and it is based on the original work by Akira Toriyama. Will the boy be able to help Yamcha rise to the top and become Earth’s mightiest hero? If you read Japanese, you can read the first chapter on Shonen Jump Plus, now.
The Slow Mo Guys decided to see how sharp a katana is. To test this, they adopted the methodology of Man at Arms: slice through plastic bottles filled with water. They first cut through small water bottles full of water, and then they graduate up to larger bottles filled with soda or other colored liquids. Once the wielder gets the hang of things, he easily gets through them and describes it as cutting through butter. I only wish they would’ve put all the slow-motion clips at the end of the video if you just want to watch some very satisfying clips and don’t care about the setup.
We recently showed a reason to be scared when around an Amazon Echo. Here’s something a little less creepy for you. Petra is an African Grey and she mimics what she hears in the morning which activates her Amazon Echo. With the signal of a door opening, Petra begins with, “Alexa. All lights on.” The lights then turn on because the Echo is connected to the Insteon switch and hue bulbs installed in the house. The full transcript is as follows:
The craziest part is at the end, Petra just laughs. What pets do you have that can use technology like this?
It's movie night, and whether you're sitting at home or the theater, you're going to need snacks. While I'm alright with the typical movie theater popcorn, I'm an absolute sucker for those overpriced bags of dessert popcorn from Popcornopolis. I used to think the people who made those were wizard, but now I'm learning the process is so simple a child can literally do it.
You can too hopefully, and if you follow the directions in the video below, soon you'll be trying to sneak in your own delicious popcorn to your local theater! Skip to close to the end of the video for the popcorn snack, although I have to say the first few snacks looked good as well.
Stranger Things is often seen as an intense show and a lot of the time we hear covers of the theme song which is a little intense and creepy. That’s what makes Taylor Davis’ violin medley different. It starts with a beautiful rendition of “Eleven” goes to “Kids” and then ends with “Stranger Things” in a seamless transition. Those first two songs, are not as intense, and when she starts playing the theme, an intensity slowly creeps in but in a much more subtle way.
Ever wanted to make some treats from Harry Potter, but didn't have any idea where to start? Binging With Babish's latest video is a good place to start. In this video you'll learn how to make Butterbeer, Treacle Tart, and Pumpkin Pasties. It's enough to make me want to throw on an apron and make these while binging the entire franchise...what about you?
If you're someone who has no idea why people watch people play video games on Twitch, you need to watch this video. Dr. DisRespect, who's one of the service's biggest personalities, recently won an industry award in eSports and his speech is funny and heartwarming. In it, he talks about the struggles people go through and how he had no idea he could help someones life by just playing games and being entertaining. For what it's worth, he is pretty damn entertaining, so I wouldn't be surprised if he's helped people get through some rough times.
Check out his speech below, and hop down below that for some interesting highlights of his past streams on Twitch.
