Thanks to Entertainment Weekly we have the first trailer, box art, and release date for the upcoming film Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, which is the sixth installment of the Tremors franchise. I love this stupid franchise.

Michael Gross' Burt Gummer has been such a fun character to watch over the years and he's back to once again blow some Tremors away. He will once again be joined Jamie Kennedy (Scream) as his son Travis Welker. Here's the synopsis:

Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the artic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!   

Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 1, 2018. Are you a fan of the Tremors franchise and will you be watching this latest film?

Cool Trailer For The B: THE BEGINNING Anime Series Coming To Netflix

If you’re looking for a new anime to watch, you may want to consider B: The Beginning. I know, the name is not impressive. However, it sounds pretty cool:

In a world powered by advanced technology, crime and action unfold in the archipelagic nation of Cremona. Koku, the protagonist. Keith, the legendary investigator of the royal police force RIS. A mysterious criminal organization. A wide variety of characters race through the fortified city as it is beset by the serial killer, Killer B, and a chain of crimes in this suspense drama by director Kazuto Nakazawa and Production I.G.

If that sounds at all cool to you, get a better look at the series with the new trailer for the English dub of the show. Yes, it looks to be subbed as well for the people that care. It will release worldwide on Netflix on March 2, 2018. And you can bet that I’ll be checking it out. I just hope it’s not too gory. I like mystery shows and crime shows, but if they get too bloody and gory, I’m out.

DEADPOOL 2 Director David Leitch Frontrunner For Dwayne Johnson’s FAST AND FURIOUS Spinoff

Universal Pictures is looking to hire a director to take on Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham's Fast and Furious spinoff film and according to Variety, their top choice is John Wick and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch.

This news is sure to get fans of the franchise excited because Leitch has directed some insanely cool badass action movies. It's going to be so cool to see what he would bring to the Fast and Furious franchise, specifically with the characters special agent Luke Hobbs and criminal mastermind Deckard Shaw.

These two actors had such great chemistry on screen together. And the prospect of them starring in a spinoff film was so exciting to the studio that they wanted to get this movie made and in theaters before Fast and Furious 9.

There are no details on the story yet or where it will leave the two characters when the ninth instalment of the franchise picks up, but franchise writer Chris Morgan is writing the script. The studio is hoping to release the film on July 26, 2019.

What do you think about the possibility of Leitch directing the movie?

THE X-FILES Creator Chris Carter Hints That The Show Could Continue Without Gillian Anderson

After Gillian Anderson announced and confirmed that The X-Files Season 11 would be her last, creator Chris Carter said that he wouldn't continue the series without her. 

“For me, ‘The X-Files’ is Mulder and Scully. I think if it were without Scully, I wouldn’t do it. That’s not my ‘X-Files.'”

Well, it seems he's had a change of heart and is actually considering moving forward with the series without her. During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Carter teased:

"I think that certainly The X-Files has more life in it, there are more stories to tell, with Gillian or without. I'm sorry to see her go, I've never actually considered doing this show without her, so is this the end? It's the end of something, I don't know if it's the beginning of something new. But certainly we will have to all put our heads together and figure out where to go from here."

That certainly sounds to me like maybe The X-Files won't end after Anderson leaves. As a hardcore fan of the show, I'm torn by this news. Sure, it'd be great to see the series continue, but to move forward without Anderson would be weird. The series would definitely be something different, but would that be a good different or a bad different? Only time will tell. When asked if he knew that Anderson was going to make the announcement, he said:

"I wasn't aware when she announced it that she was going to say it, although for quite a while I've wondered how long David [Duchovny] and Gillian really wanted to do this show after doing it for 25 years. They've played these characters, considering all the material that ended up on the cutting room floor, for probably 6-7,000 hours of their lives. That's a whole lot of time and so considering that and considering that they're still relatively young folk, I'm sure they have other things they want to do."

I wonder what Carter is thinking about in terms of keeping the show moving forward. I'd love to get into his head and see what he's got going on in there. Personally, if they did decide to do something different, I'd want to see a prequel series based on the early FBI education and career of Fox Mulder.

While we wait to see what happens with the series next, I'll just be enjoying the rest of Season 11! 

Sam Worthington is Transformed into an Enhanced Super Human in Trailer For The Sci-Fi Film THE TITAN

sam-worthington-is-transformed-into-an-enhanced-super-human-in-trailer-for-the-sci-fi-film-the-titan-social.jpg

Sam Worthington (Avatar) has a new film sci-fi action-thriller coming out called The Titan and it actually looks kinda interesting. The story is set in the near future and it centers on a man who signs up for a military program that will transformer him into an enhanced human called "Titans" who would be capable of living on Saturn's moon Titan, which they want to colonize. As you might expect from a movie like this, this transformation comes with some intense and deadly side effects. 

The movie also stars Taylor SchillingTom WilkinsonAgyness DeynNathalie Emmanuel, and Corey Johnson. Here's the synopsis:

A military family takes part in a ground-breaking experiment of genetic evolution and space exploration. Hotshot Air Force pilot, Rick Janssen (Worthington), is chosen for a military experiment that will create a human being capable of surviving the harsh environments of Saturn's moon, Titan. The experiment is successful, turning Rick into a super-human, but it also creates deadly side-effects which threatens the life of Rick, his wife and family, and possibly humanity itself. 

The movie has a solid concept, but we'll have to wait and see if that execution of it is any good. The film was directed by Lennart Ruff, who is making his feature film debut, and there's currently no release date. Watch the trailer and let us know if it looks like a movie you'd want to check out.

Someone Managed To Erase Henry Cavill’s Mustache In JUSTICE LEAGUE Using A Desktop PC…And They Did A Better Job Than Warner Bros.

someone-managed-to-erase-henry-cavills-mustache-in-justice-league-using-a-desktop-pcand-they-did-a-better-job-than-warner-bros-social.jpg

The CGI job on Henry Cavill's face in Justice League is nothing short of awful. What's even more heart-wrenching is it could've been done much better, if only someone had known what they were doing. DeepFakes claims they taught a desktop computer to digitally remove Henry Cavill's mustache in various clips, and the end result is phenomenal compared to what Justice League managed to do with its massive budget. I'm not 100% convinced this video is legit, but I am convinced that even if someone painstakingly recreated this just to prove that Warner Bros. didn't spend enough time getting this right, it's worth a watch. 

New MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT Featurette Focuses on Tom Cruise’s Death-Defying Helicopter Stunt

new-mission-impossible-fallout-featurette-focuses-on-tom-cruises-death-defying-helicopter-stunt-social.jpg

I don't know about you, but I was super impressed with that first trailer that was released for Mission: Impossible - Fallout. There was some pretty epic action that was teased in the trailer. It seemed like the action just continued to escalate and get bigger and crazier. As a fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise, I'm totally pumped up for this movie!

Today we have a featurette that you've got to check out that focuses on a death-defying stunt involving Tom Cruise and a helicopter. Tom Cruise actually took a crash course in piloting a helicopter to pull this stunt off! Yeah, he's didn't fake this whole thing on a set with a green screen, he learned how to fly a freakin' helicopter so that he could do this! This is one of the reasons why Tom Cruise is so awesome! 

The best intentions often come back to haunt you.  MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast.

The movie is being directed by Christopher McQuarrie and it's set to be released on July 27th. Enjoy the trailer! 

Competitive Capture the Flag is Coming to OVERWATCH

overwatch-chinese-new-year-2017-mei.jpg

Overwatch has announced its Lunar New Year Event called Year of the Dog. There are a lot of things coming to the game but one thing that stood out among the rest of them was the announcement of a new map based in Thailand. One side of the map is very ancient looking with temples and other artifacts, and the other side has a more modern structure like we are used to seeing in previous overwatch maps. The best part about this new map is, it was completely designed for capture the flag.

Some people will be excited that they are bringing back this game mode that was originally released last year during the Year of the Rooster event. Others may be hesitant to jump on board because it was annoying being in multiple games that ended in a draw, but fret not overwatch heroes they are making changes to the gameplay to make it more fun for everyone. The first major change is that there are no more draws in the game. Instead, players will be put into sudden death and the flag will be moved closer to the center so that opposing teams can pick them up faster. The next change is making flag captures instantaneous, but restricting abilities from certain characters that either increase mobility or make you invulnerable. The best example is Winston’s leap ability when used, will make him drop the flag. Developers hope that by making these changes that it will change the game into a more offensive game mode rather than a defensive one that it had come to be known as.

Also, in an effort to entice players to participate in this new and exciting rendition of the game more they are holding a 4-week competitive season on the map. Those who get into the top 500 will get special spay and a player icon.

This coupled with the launch of Overwatch League definitely makes the game more enticing. Admittedly I had dropped off of the game for a bit and instead have been playing Heroes of the storm, but as a huge CTF fan from yonder years of Halo and the likes, I am definitely feeling the itch to get back in the game and dawn Soldier 76 in this new mode.

The full developer announcement can be found here:

Are you excited to play Capture the flag? For those that hated it, was it because every match ended in a draw? That was the original reason i stopped playing the mode. I’m curious to know!

For those that have never heard of Owlboy and are interested in its visuals and story, here is a rundown of the game: 

Owlboy tells the touching story of owl misfit Otus, a feathery little fellow struggling to live the owl life.

ONCE UPON A TIME Will End After Current Season

Once Upon a Time first aired in 2011 and is on its seventh, and final, season. This comes as no surprise since for this season they really shook things up with the story considering their main actors had left before the current season. I came in late to the show, I think it was season 4 (the one with Frozen characters) and it was ok. It really bugged me though when almost every season they started using a case of amnesia to create the mystery of the season. These two factors (the main cast leaving and what I consider to be lazy writing) make the announcement made by co-creator Adam Horowitz on Twitter, not a surprise at all. I’ve seen parts of the earlier seasons and while some of the stories seemed weak, the overall premise was strong and there seemed to be more good than bad moments. The premise was definitely interesting, but I’m glad they’re not going to drag it out anymore. Too many shows are dragged out because they’re popular and that’s a problem. It creates lazy writing which can turn fans into haters depending on how poorly the writing goes. I’m glad this show is ending before it goes too far off the rails. The seventh season will continue on March 2, 2018 on ABC.
