Things get ridiculously weird and crazy in this first trailer for the upcoming dark comedy Arizona. The movie stars Danny McBride, Rosemarie DeWitt, and Luke Wilson, and it looks like it will be a wild good time.
The story is set 2009 during the housing crisis, and it follows a single mom who is a struggling relator. Her life takes a dark and unexpected turn when she witnesses a murder.
Arizona comes from director Jonathan Watson, who previously worked as an assistant director for Michael Bay, John McTiernan, Frank Darabont, Damien Chazelle, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and others. Here's the synopsis:
Cassie (Rosemarie DeWitt) is a real estate agent and single mom struggling to keep it all together during the housing crisis of 2009. Her problems go from bad to worse when disgruntled client Sonny (Danny McBride) violently confronts Cassie’s boss and then kidnaps Cassie – making one outrageously bad, and bloody, decision after another.
Arizona will be released on August 24th. Does this look like a movie you'll want to check out?
It looks like Tessa Thompson is going to be playing the lead female character, Lady, in Disney's upcoming live-action adaptation of Lady and the Tramp. She is currently in negotiations and if cast she will join Justin Theroux, who will voice the Tramp and Ashley Jensen. Kiersey Clemons has also been cast in the movie.
The story Follows "a pampered cocker spaniel named Lady whose comfortable life slips away once her owners have a baby. When, after some tense circumstances, Lady finds herself on the loose and out on the street, she is befriended and protected by the tough stray mutt Tramp. A romance begins to blossom between the two dogs, but their many differences, along with more drama at Lady’s household, threaten to keep them apart."
Lady and the Tramp is being released in 2019 exclusively on Disney’s upcoming streaming service sometime next year and it will be directed by Charlie Bean (The Lego Ninjago Movie, Dexter’s Laboratory,Samurai Jack). As you might imagine, most of the animal characters will be brought to life with CGI technology.
I like Thompson and the film work she's done. There's no doubt that she'll be great in the role of Lady.

I've got a fantastic trailer for you to watch today for a new film called Green Book that is filled with emotion, power, and a story that is relevant to today's world. The movie stars Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises, The Lord of the Rings) and Mahershala Ali (Moonlight, Hidden Figures) and it tells the true story of a friendship that "transcended race, class and the 1962 Mason-Dixon line." Here's the synopsis:
When Tony Lip (Mortensen), a bouncer from an Italian-American neighborhood in the Bronx, is hired to drive Dr. Don Shirley (Ali), a world-class Black pianist, on a concert tour from Manhattan to the Deep South, they must rely on “The Green Book” to guide them to the few establishments that were then safe for African-Americans. Confronted with racism, danger—as well as unexpected humanity and humor—they are forced to set aside differences to survive and thrive on the journey of a lifetime.
The film was directed by Peter Farrelly (Dumb and Dumber, There's Something About Mary) and it looks like a great film! It's definitely a different kind of movie that he's directed before. I'm looking forward to checking it out.
The movie also stars Linda Cardellini, Don Stark, P.J. Byrne, Brian Stepanek, Sebastian Maniscalco, and Iqbal Theba. Green Book hit theaters on November 21st.
After four seasons of fighting for survival, the then innocent orphan Clementine is now a hardened survivor and at the end of her story. The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is out now, with more episodes coming out in months to come.
Telltale says that the final season would see the end of Clementine’s story, who is now taking care of an orphan of her own and the choices players make in the game would influence the way her story ends.
“Clementine, now a fierce and capable survivor, has reached the final chapter in her journey,” Telltale said. “After years on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be her chance for a home. However, protecting it will mean sacrifice.”
The first episode of The Walking Dead: The Final Season is out now for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The remaining episodes will be released in the months to come.
It was previously reported that DC was favoring Alexandra Daddario for the role of Huntress in the upcoming Birds of Prey film. However, that may not be the case. On social media, Francesca Ruscio has been making a number of posts that make it a little hard to tell if she’s being coy about getting the part or just campaigning for the part. She is probably simply campaigning for the role of Helena Bertinelli with the two Tweets she’s sent out, but things always get murky when Margot Robbie goes and like the posts.
Ruscio has not been in a lot, and I’ve never seen her in anything, so I can’t weigh in on if she’d be a good match. I do like the fact that she’s not been in a lot as I’m always a fan of bringing in lesser known actors. What do you think though? Should Ruscio, Daddario, or someone else get the role of Huntress?
FOX has got some big animated projects in development that may end up carrying over into the Disney merger. According to The Wall Street Journal, there's a sequel in the works for The Simpsons Movie! On top of that, the studio is developing several other animated films which are also said to include Bob's Burgers and Family Guy.
Fans of The Simpsons have been wanting to see a sequel to the 2007 film for years and now it looks like it might actually happen on the verge of the show's 30th anniversary. A sequel has been mentioned a few time over the years. At one point the producers even took one of the storylines for the sequel and just ended up turning it into an episode.
That episode was called "The Man Who Came To Be Dinner" and it followed the Simpson family as they are kidnapped from a ride at Dizzneeland and taken to the planet of Kang and Kodos, Rigel 7, where the family is on the menu.
As far as Family Guy goes, creator Seth MacFarlane did hint at one point a few years ago that it might happen soon. The term "soon" in Hollywood, though, never really means what it's supposed to mean. With Bob's Burgers, this is the first time I've heard about any kind of feature film for it.
I'd love to see these projects eventually make it to the big screen. It's good to hear that they are in development. Only time will tell if Disney will continue development on them after their deal with Disney goes through.
A new ad for The Nun has some folks pissed off, and others laughing as it utilizes a classic jump scare technique to fool those on the platform. As you can see from the thumbnail below, the ad starts with a black screen, and the volume indicator on the computer going wild. Keep in mind, this isn't your actual volume being manipulated, but by the time you figure that out you'll be startled by an incredibly loud noise and The Nun's face!
It was jarring for me and I even knew it was coming, although I'm not sure we can fault a horror film for scaring people with its marketing. That said, I know some people who want no part of this film, and would be furious to see an advertisement for it so unexpectedly. Take a look at the video below (via Slashfilm) and let us know if you think it's funny or a bit shady that The Nun marketing team is doing this:
I grew up with The Aquabats in my life. I've been a huge fan for years! The first concert I ever attended was an Aquarts show! Year's later as an adult I had the opportunity to get up on stage with the band as Giant Crap Man and get the crap beat out of me by the Bat Commander! It was the best ass-whooping I ever got.
Not only am I a fan of their music, but their Super Show! TV series was a blast to watch and my kids loved it! It's a shame that the series ended up getting canceled, because not only was it fun, but it brought a light and positivity into this dark world that we live in!
If you are a fan of The Aquabats, they need your help! They have launched a Kickstarter campaign to help save the world with super rad new albums and TV episodes of Super Show! Even if your not a fan, I've got some information below for you to check out to show you how awesome The Aquabats are!
They are asking people to pledge some money and become a part of the "Legion of Righteous Comrades"! I would love to get more new music and entertainment from The Aquabats and it seems like this is going to be a big final push to make it happen. You will find all the details below:
We hear you loud and clear: It’s time for The Aquabats to get to work, making more music and bringing back the Super Show! But the truth is we can’t make ANYTHING without you... and since we're doing this for you, we wouldn't want to do it without you!
With YOUR SUPPORT, we can record The Aquabats' first NEW ALBUM since 2011, and shoot our first NEW TV SPECIAL since 2014. Not only will you get new music and television, you'll be helping introduce The Aquabats to a whole new generation of Righteous Comrades and future Aquacadets!
Ever since our network went out of business, we've tried to find a new home for the Super Show... but we don't fit into a very neat box. And, even though we know we have THE WORLD'S BEST FANS, the TV networks and streaming platforms aren't sure if there are enough of you.
So even though we need to raise the funds to make a new album, and a new TV special, it's even more important to bring together everyone who has ever loved The Aquabats, or believes in what The Aquabats stand for.
See, it probably sounds silly, but we really do want to save the world – if saving the world means giving everyone stuff to feel positive about! When we make music and TV shows, our most important goal is for you to have a good time, and not take things too seriously.
Without all of you, we can't prove there's still a place in this crazy world for fun-loving (and kinda weird) superheroes like The Aquabats... and unless we do, we'll never find a new home for the Aquabats or the Super Show!
This is the most important goal of all!
You see, friends, the best thing about being The Aquabats has been all the amazing people we've met and become friends with over the years. Even if we haven't met yet, we bet that includes you too! And, even better, we've gotten to watch lots of you become friends through our music.
But now, it's been almost 5 years since we've had the chance to make new music or television…. and our family has drifted apart. It's been a total bummer, homies. That's why we want to get back to bringing awesome people together, just like our concerts and shows have for 25 years.
That's why we’re gathering... The Aquabats Legion of Righteous Comrades!
Devil May Cry 5 will feature a playable demo of the game at this year’s Gamescom. The game’s director, Hideaki Itsuno, announced the upcoming demo via Twitter saying that the official preview will be ready for Gamescom 2018.
The upcoming installment in the Devil May Cry series was initially announced during last June’s E3 expo. Capcom revealed at the event that the upcoming game would directly follow the events of Devil May Cry 4, which was released about ten years ago in 2008.
The feature of Devil May Cry 5 at E3 revealed a few gameplay elements that players can look forward to in the game. The trailer showed the character, Nero, sporting a new cybernetic arm called the Devil Breaker, which as the name suggests, a cool weapon that will have powerful abilities such as lighting-based attacks among many others.
The demo that will be featured at Gamescom will allow attendees to have a hands-on experience of the upcoming game. Devil May Cry 5 is scheduled to release at Spring of 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
Netflix and Millarworld have announced their latest comic book series Prodigy. This is the second comic book series from writer Mark Millar since he joined forces with Netflix. The first series announced was The Magic Order, which was released earlier this summer. Apparently, it's doing well enough to move forward with this other comic. In fact, The Magic Order ended up being the biggest selling new comic-book franchise in nearly 20 years.
I'm sure you're all wondering what this Prodigy comic series is about so here's the synopsis:
In Prodigy, the world’s smartest man isn’t content with running the world’s most successful business. His brilliant mind needs constant challenge and so he’s become the go-to guy for governments around the world when a problem arises they just can’t handle. A Nobel-Prize winning scientist, a genius composer, an Olympic-level athlete and an expert in the occult, Edison Crane is as addicted to the mysteries of the world as he is to sitting at the top of the Fortune 500. These are the tales of the world’s most exceptional man and this story marks his first published adventure.
Edison Crane definitely sounds like a fascinating character and a series that centers around him could be really really interesting. Miller had this to say in a statement:
"I gave myself a challenge when I created Prodigy. I wanted to write the smartest thing I’ve ever written and at the same time top any action set-pieces I’ve ever managed in the past and I honestly couldn’t be happier with how this has turned out. Edison Crane is by far the best character I’ve created in my career and I’m delighted that my genius friend Rafa Albuquerque is drawing the comic-book side of all this. He’s really one of the best artists in the world. I can’t wait to share this with everyone. This really is a beaut and we’re incredibly proud of it."
Prodigy will be illustrated by artist Rafael Albuquerque (Batman, American Vampire). He previously worked with Millar on the popular comic book Huck.
The comicwill be available in comic book stores and online on December 5th.
