Season Three lurks around the corner for Mike Tyson’s Mysteries. This Sunday April 17th at 11:45 PM a new episode will air on Adult Swim. Anyone who watched the show in the past will understand why it earned a 82% Critic Rating and 95% Audience Rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Mike Tyson stars on the show with a flamboyant ghost named Marquess of Queensberry (pronounced Marcus), his adopted Korean daughter, Yung He and the infamous, show stealing Pigeon voiced by Norm MacDonald. Crude and witty jokes play off of Mike Tyson’s straight man act to a high degree of adult comedy not seen since The Hangover. Last season the gang solved the mystery of how Pigeon (Richard) became a bird. Now we catch up to the gang entering a romance novel episode of “Lusty Cabins”. Check out the video below. (more…)

Oh the 80’s. The age of excess, cocaine and weird horror. And very few movies just shout 80’s more than the beloved Killer Klowns From Outer Space! After years and years of whispers and rumors of a potential sequel to the horror comedy classic, it seems that there is finally some movement but this time on TV. Yes, the Killer Klowns will be returning to a big top near you, and with the original director at the helm.

Shia LeBeouf is no stranger to performance art and strange goings on. He’s done some crazy stuff over the years, and perhaps this is one of the more sedate of his attempts at performance art. LeBeouf is currently spending 24 hours in an elevator at Oxford Union, talking with anyone who comes onto the elevator, streaming the entire thing. It’s fascinating and there’s no telling what might happen next. The subjects jump around as each person asks their own questions or answers LeBeouf’s questions. Check out the live stream below.

POSTER

Yeah, you read that right. None other than Captain Kirk himself has signed on to perhaps one of the odder projects he’s been involved with, and in doing so steps into the world of crowd-funded entertainment. Along with genre favourites Morena Baccarin, Ray Wise and Bill Moseley, Malevolent is currently seeking funding for post-production with a release planned for later this year.  (more…)

There is nothing quite like seeing what celebrities were like before they were stars.  Knowing that most of them had to take crappy jobs just to get by before landing their big break makes them much more relatable.  Spotting them with their kids in the park without makeup or a visible bodyhard is humanizing.  Seeing footage from the 90s surface showing a well known star acting far out of his typecast, on the hand, is priceless.  Even more so when he is acting as goofy as he’s dressed.  Who is this star, you ask?  None other than Vin Diesel, star of the Fast and Furious franchise.  In this video, which is currently taking the internet by storm (and for good reason), we see Diesel working a 1994 toy fair selling the Street Sharks toyline.  You don’t remember the the 90s cartoon?  No one does.  But you’re not likely to forget this anytime soon.

Every year on April 1st, the Internet becomes a minefield of April Fool’s Day posts and NerdBastards traditionally joins in with a post each year. For the last couple years of April Fool’s Day jokes we’ve tried to convince people that Iron Man’s latest armor for Avengers: Age of Ultron would have nipples, that Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg had bought the rights to Firefly for his wife, and last year’s about a new original Dredd mini-series on Netflix. We would have put that link in there too, but you’ll find out later in this post why we couldn’t. It all started out so simply… (more…)

Apparently Walkers aren’t the only thing trying to get take a bite out of Norman Reedus. Over the weekend, an overzealous The Walking Dead fan went full Walker and took a Norman Reedus sized bite during a photo-op with Reedus and Michael Rooker. Things obviously didn’t go as the fan, Harleygurl68 hoped or planned though. What went down after the bite?

Hasbro’s Lack of Rey Disturbs Us

star-wars-hasbro-target-1024x812

Okay, so I’m going to try to come at this situation from both sides because honestly, I don’t see any clear answer. Hasbro has released a six action figure set from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to be sold at Target. Included characters are Kylo Ren, Chewbacca, Finn, Poe Dameron, a First Order Stormtrooper, and a First Order TIE Fighter pilot. Noticeably absent: Rey. Not to make a big deal about nothing, but Rey has been positioned as the main protagonist in Force Awakens. She doesn’t make the cut, but two random storm troopers do? We get two of the big new protagonists and the one male villain, but not (arguably, along with Finn) the movie’s main character? (more…)

Bonkers fan theories are nothing new, but this one just might take the cake: Jar Jar Binks may, in fact, be a wildly capable force user and perhaps the uUltimate Sith Lord behind the machinations of the entire saga. As Redditor Lumpawarroo posits, in a post that equals the breadth and research of a PhD dissertation, Jar Jar was “intended to be the prequel (and Dark Side) equivalent of Yoda.” (more…)

It’s a beautiful thing when a television series is so well produced with story lines so well executed that you’re left after each episode feeling like you’re a part of that world. It’s not such a beautiful thing anymore when people actually believe they are a part of that fantasy world, and act accordingly. Case in point: police say that 23 year old Damon Perry is on charge for a murder charge after killing friend Christopher Paquin. Perry explained that the cause of the killing was that Paquin had started to “change into a zombie”, and attempted to bite him. Probing deeper into the story, it was uncovered that the friends had spent the night before the murder was committed drinking, and that Perry had been binge-watching AMC‘s The Walking Dead on Netflix recently. All this culminated in Perry beating his friend to death, with heavy objects such as an electric guitar and a microwave. (more…)
