The MTV Movie & TV Awards might not be the most prestigious award show on the block, but they put on a good show. They also have some great skits, which is why I'm posting this one where Tiffany Haddish challenged Prince T'Challa for the throne. Check out the skit below, which also features Lil Rel Howery, Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, and of course the cast of Black Panther:
The first poster for Creed II has arrived, and Michael B. Jordan is looking as swole as ever. Actually, he honestly looks more in shape than he did in Black Panther, which is really saying something! As for the film's plot, we already know Adonis is going to be taking on the son of Ivan Drago. If I have to explain to you why that's significant, you're either:
1. Not American.
2. Too young to remember the 80s.
In either case, it looks like the film is going to drop this Thanksgiving, and I just got super excited to head to the movie theater during Black Friday! Also, according to Sylvester Stallone, you can expect the first trailer for the film to drop soon. He posted this yesterday, then removed it from Instagram, so we don't know when exactly the trailer will be released but it will happen soon.
The trailer drops tomorrow! Get ready to be… https://t.co/pFoI1awdBw— Sylvester Stallone (@TheSlyStallone) June 18, 2018
Creed 2 writer Cheo Hodari Coker shed some light on the sequel last week during a new interview with /Film promoting Luke Cage Season 2:
"It's about the legacies of sons haunted by their fathers. Even though Drago is alive, his son is haunted by him because Drago is a broken man who's trying to rebuild himself through the son. Apollo Creed isn't broken but because Apollo died, Adonis Creed is still haunted by his father's death and how it defined him, what it is it means now to be a champion. He's aspiring to be a champion but also at the same time trying to figure out who it is he is. Particularly with Bianca, particularly also because he's got Rocky who at this point becomes the new Mickey."
Here's the full poster:
Collectors, start your engines! The weirdest merchandise for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom has arrived, and is currently available to order on Amazon. What you're looking at is a limited edition box of Frosted Flakes that features genetically engineered Velociraptor Blue, and an embedded video screen on a FREAKING BOX OF CEREAL. The screen will contain a five-minute featurette of behind the scenes footage from the film, as well as buttons to control the video (via Variety):
Kellogg's will also release a limited edition box for Keebler Fudge Stripes cookies (seen above) with the T-Rex and same video embedded in the box. Each box is going for $24.99 plus shipping. Order yours right now, or hop down to the comments and tell us why you're going to pass on this one.
American Horror Story fans were thrilled enough when Ryan Murphy revealed the new season would be a crossover between Murder House and Coven, and now Emma Roberts just made things even more exciting. The actress posted the following video to her Instagram, which clearly shows her channeling the character of Madison Montgomery:
Montgomery's return is pretty impressive considering she was killed not once, but twice in Season 3 of American Horror Story. Bloody Disgusting reported that Murphy confirmed all the witches from Season 3 have been invited back, although that tweet has since been deleted. Are you excited to see Roberts back as Montgomery? Are you excited for yet another season of AHS?
A blurb from the anticipated follow-up to Timothy Zahn's Thrawn reboot novel has been revealed, and it's featuring something the final book teased! Soon, the world will get a canon Star Wars adventure that pits Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader side by side! Have a read at the synopsis via Jedi News:
Ominous words under any circumstances, but all the more so when uttered by Emperor Palpatine. On Batuu, at the edges of the Unknown Regions, a threat to the Empire is taking root–its existence little more than a glimmer, its consequences as yet unknowable. But it is troubling enough to the Imperial leader to warrant investigation by his most powerful agents: ruthless enforcer Lord Darth Vader and brilliant strategist Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Vader and Thrawn are teaming up, although this technically isn't the first time they've joined forces. Before Thrawn was a Grand Admiral, or involved with the Empire at all, he fought alongside Anakin Skywalker in a one-off adventure. I'm guessing this means that at some point Thrawn will realize Darth Vader is the same person he fought alongside all those years ago eventually, although when he was first introduced to Vader at the end of Thrawn he seemed oblivious.
I'm excited to see what threat is substantial enough to the empire it requires their greatest strategist and enforcer! Let's hope this team up lives up to the hype!
Question, you're in Saudi Arabia and want to have a fashion show, but strict law prohibits female models, what do you do?
1. Dress men up as models.
2. Not have the fashion show.
3. Attach hangers to flying drones.
If you answered 1 you're clearly not familiar with the culture of Saudi Arabia, and if you answered 2 you're a individual who realizes option 3 is not a great idea. The good news is these fashion show organizers weren't and decided to go option 3 for the world to sit back and laugh at. Enjoy the video and the screeching engines of the drone below:
I’m dying at this fashion show in Saudi😂😂 they weren’t allowed female models pic.twitter.com/5xxpMBk4Nr— jina (@jinakhoushnaw) June 6, 2018
I really want to believe Nick Offerman is nothing like Ron Swanson, but every interview he gives really just solidifies him further as his Parks and Recreation character. Take this one, for instance, in which a teenage Offerman became a born-again christian, mostly because he was into the passionate love-making. Listen to Offerman explain in the video below, and have a good laugh along the way:
Do you want to see a gourmet chef make a Big Mac a world class meal? If you didn't I have no idea why you clicked this video. I personally am fine with just eating a Big Mac as is, but I feel like if this was offered to me I wouldn't say no. What about you?
If you like The Office and dogs, congrats, you're like a significant portion of the human population. You'll also, by default, love this video in which a man used his dog to recreate the opening to The Office. It's not an incredibly faithful recreation, but dammit, it's good enough for that dog to get some approval from strangers on the internet:
I believe the children are our future, and the future is looking worse every day. In a hilarious, but certainly weird moment at the Cal Poly Pomona commencement ceremony, a graduate emerged from the crowd and received his diploma with his waifu body pillow there to help celebrate the festivities (via Kotaku):
I'm watching a livesteam of one of the commencements right now and this dude brought his fucking Niko daki pic.twitter.com/KWB6ksAHVW— Amanojaku Respecter (@honkposter) June 9, 2018
I think the most impressive thing about this is the guy doesn't even acknowledge it, which then forces everyone around him to act like this is a natural thing occurring. Maybe it is? For his sake I hope not, as I would hate to be the guy who years after college people stumble into and be like "hey you're the weird anime pillow guy". Of course, if he's owning it this well in these photos, chances are he's not all that concerned with that type of branding. Here's to the future, I guess?
