  • Better Call Saul' Billboards start popping up around Albuquerque

  • The Flash cast Wentworth Miller and more

    The Flash is racing to TV this fall and all eyes are on The CW's Scarlet Speedster. Hailing from Greg Berlanti, Geoff Johns and Andrew Kreisberg and starring Grant Gustin as Barry Allen with a supporting cast of Jesse L. Martin, Tom Cavanagh, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett and Carlos Valdes, the new drama is set in the same universe as Arrow and fans can expect that fact to be very noticeable. But don't expect this to be Arrow 2.0. "We weren't looking to do the same show twice," Kreisberg said. For The Flash, he said they wanted somebody who was "more normal" to embody the "spirit of hope," and who is "just somebody you would fall in love with." "Grant »

    Those who missed “Thor: The Dark World” or were still green enough to leave before the end credits now finally have their first good look at Benicio Del Toro as Marvel's newest villain, The Collector, in his own “Guardians of the Galaxy” poster. The Collector will be among the villains facing off against the Guardians: Chris Pratt's Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana‘s Gamora, David Bautista's Drax, Bradley Cooper‘s Rocket and Vin Diesel‘s Groot. The colorful character lives up to his name, as he was shown ominously saying, “One down, five to go” when he was handed the Aether, »

  • Game of Thrones Season 5 Director finally named

    Writing this article sort of bums me out because I’m reminded that there are another nine months or so before Game of Thrones Season 5 premieres.  That being said, the gears on this show run year-round and the directing staff seems to have been firmed up.  And it appears that, in addition to a certain character many people were expecting to see at the end of Season 4, a few of the directors of your favorite episodes won’t be coming back for Season 5. For instance, Neil Marshall (who handles a lot of the big battle episodes) is skipping this season.  So is Alex Graves. Even showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are staying behind their laptops (and away from the cameras) next year.  Hit the jump for more on the Game of Thrones Season 5 directors list. As Entertainment Weekly points out, David Nutter is the only returning veteran of the show. »

  • Disney' 'Jungle Book' rebook finally gets its lead

    Disney has cast newcomer Neel Sethi as Mowgli in “The Jungle Book.”

    Jon Favreau is directing the live action film from a script by Justin Marks.

    The 10-year-old Sethi, from New York, was chosen from among thousands of kids who auditioned for the role in the U.S., the U.K., New Zealand and Canada.

    “The Jungle Book” will be Sethi’s first acting role.

    “Casting is the most important element of any film and finding the right kid to play Mowgli was imperative,” Favreau said in a statement. “Neel has tremendous talent and charisma. There is a lot riding on his little shoulders and I’m confident he can handle it.”

    Casting director Sarah Finn described Sethi as embodying “the heart, humor, and daring of the character. He’s warm and accessible, yet also has an intelligence well beyond his years and impressed us all with his ability to »

  • How to get 3D at home without spending much or buying a new tv

    I fell in love with 3D back in the late 80's to early 90's upon landing in a seat at Disney World and watching the Michael Jackson experience. It was my first taste of 3D and it was ahead of it's time, like ten years ahead of it's time. The eye popping visuals and the feeling of being immersed into this video world was flat out amazing. Over the next decade or so I experience 3D gradually at game locations that offered VR games, it was to say the least an all new experience. Consumer end 3D has never been cheap, getting the same results as you  would in lets say a multimillion dollar 3D theater from the comfort of your couch is a very expensive task.

    Most people I have heard complain about 3D mostly do so for two reasons. One, the glasses they aren't designed specifically for one user and they are mostly one size fits all. Second, motion sickness that makes individuals feel like they need to find the nearest bathroom. There various formats for 3D video, the most commonly known one is Anaglyph 3D. It's the 3D that you see while wearing often disposable glasses with one red and one blue lens. This version of 3D could easily be found in cereal boxes for Saturday morning cartoon stuff. This version of 3D works well because it's a cheap version of coming the content without spending much money. Stereoscopic 3D is mostly based around solid frames that either use polarized lenses, shutter glasses, or a variation of the old Anaglyph styled lens but with darker shades.  The difference between those 3 are price, usage, and comfort with the viewer. Polarized and Shutter glasses are more commonly on the expensive end because they come associated with direct television sets. Shutter glasses in particular require battery charging as they are motorized shutting off one lens at a time giving you more of a pop out in your face 3D experience or about as close as one can get to movie theater type quality. The anaglyph modern version approach is the easiest and cheapest way of consuming 3D content but you don't get things jumping out of the screen and are less likely to experience motion sickness.

    I recently searched for a solution to get 3D as inexpensively as I could. After many searches, read reviews, and consumer reports I found one particular item on amazon that caught my interest. It was a box that promised to convert 2D content to 3D, that wasn't it's only promise but it was an attractive one. 2D to 3D conversion is possible on some modern television sets but most don't actually handle it well, this box didn't do it well at all. The other features it provides were as promised, I could watch SBS (side by side) 3D from HBO on demand. The box is called "3D Video Wizard console" and can be found on amazon and other sites for under $35. The experience takes a bit of getting used to as I don't normally wear glasses, the sensation of having them on my nose really distracted me. The more time I spent using them the more comfortable they became. I enjoyed several animated movies which looked wonderful via the glasses, but it wasn't an all enveloping experience. I then grabbed a pair of wireless headphones, put on a copy of avatar 3D, and sat back to watch it in 3D. I was absolutely blown away, these glasses work amazingly better with Bluray 3D. The depth layers of 3D were nothing short of dazzling, the forest scenes in Avatar completely left me flabbergasted. Gravity not so much, perhaps i'll write about that one. To end this post I will say, don't expect the same 3D experience as a $1000 native 3D television may provide but this device gets me pretty close to that experience.

  • SNL continues firing it's freshmen

    Heads are rolling like a Game of Thrones finale at Saturday Night Live this week.

    Hot on the heels of firing rookie Brooks Wheelan yesterday, NBC’s sketch-comedy series has dropped fellow featured players Nöel Wells and John Milhiser heading into its 40th season this fall, according to Deadline.

    Wells and Milhiser were among eight featured players — alongside Wheelan, Beck Bennett, Mike O’Brien, Kyle Mooney, Sasheer Zamata and Colin Jost — who debuted during SNL‘s critically maligned Season 39.

    Milhiser was mostly relegated to the background during his SNL tenure. Wells got a strong start in the Season 39 premiere playing »

  • True Blood Recap: Underground Roller-Coaster

    For those of us last remaining True Blood loyalists, season seven has felt like nothing so much as sneaking into an amusement park after hours. It's dark, it's scary, and it'd be nice if we had more friends here, but man, has this all-night joyride been exhilarating. This dark park is Ours, and we should maybe feel bad for anyone who got back on the charter bus too soon, you know? Because "Death Is Not the End" was probably the best True Blood episode of the entire series so far. I realize these are bold words, but just go ahead and deal with it, hater. This episode was apex True Blood. And that's without male nudity.Okay, I guess I should at least attempt to defend my argument here. First off, no season of True Blood has been more consistently coherent than this one.  Season seven has basically thrown its »

  • 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' crushes the box office

    Fox's critically acclaimed sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes roared its way to a stellar $73 million debut at the domestic box office, well ahead of the $54.8 million debut of Rise of the Planet of the Apes in August 2011 and furthering the studio's winning streak this summer. The movie's successful opening, however, wasn't able to stop revenue from continuing to tumble over last year. North American box office revenue was down nearly 24 percent from the same weekend in 2013. Fox is enjoying a bountiful summer nonetheless, and will become the first Hollywood major to

    The network announced that it has cast Oscar winner Christopher Walken as Captain Hook in its live musical production of Peter Pan, which will air Dec. 4. "Funny, right?"

  • 'Extant' Premieres tonight on CBS, will it live up to the hype?

    I can't quite recommend CBS' science fiction miniseries Extant, which debuts tonight. I have misgivings about it — the lead performances are a tad opaque, and the script feels as though it's telling two separate stories that don't immediately seem as though they'll connect in a graceful way — but because CBS only sent the pilot to critics, who knows how well-founded they are? Future episodes might put my worries to rest and make the opening chapter seem like brilliant seed-planting in retrospect, or Extant could lose air slowly, like a ruptured spacecraft's hull.At least tonight's premiere gives you a sense of what mode Extant is working in — creepy-atmospheric, early Polanski horror — and verifies that CBS has indeed thrown a ton of money at the production, hiring Oscar-winner Halle Berry to play the astronaut heroine and Goran Visjnic, Camryn Manheim and Looper's Pierce Gagnon to back her up, »
