Hayley Atwell did a Ghostbusters by coming, seeing and kicking ass. From the minute she first showed up as Agent Carter in Captain America: The First Avenger, she became a favorite for her stoic approach to dealing with b.s. and bad guys. Marvel and Disney then featured her in a one-shot short where her brand of 1940′s butt-kicking espionage left fans wanting more and more. And that’s exactly what we’re gonna get too. In fact, we’re about to get so much Hayley Atwell, half the globe’s geeks just might overdoes on her hot retro violence. Not only does Agent Carter have a new show coming our way via the ABC network, but she’s also coming back to the big screen as early as 2015. You got this far because you’re a nerd. But only real bastards keep clicking! (more…)
The fourth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer just hit the Internet featuring the new song Shell Shocked. Music plays a big part in this summer’s blockbuster movies and the TMNT production team looks to be continuing the trend. We’re quickly closing in on the August 8th release date for the reboot and I find myself still on the fence about this latest TMNT incarnation. There are a lot of things that bug me about this reboot, beginning with those noses and lips, and while some of the new stuff, like this trailer, are starting weakening my determination to hate this reboot, I’m still not sure which side of the fence I’ll end up on.

Even before anyone has settled into their SDCC 2014 hotel room or picked up their convention badge, Disney XD has released the extended Star Wars: Rebels trailer into the Internet wild. SO much for saving it for the big Star Wars: Rebels panel on Thursday, but you have to admit that it’s a pretty savvy ploy to capture attention just before SDCC kicks off. There’s a couple of Star Wars ah-ha moments. Take a look and find out which will be your favorite. (more…)
Funny story. Remember last week when it was announced that Star Trek 3 director Roberto Orci was hired to help shepherd the new Power Rangers movie to the big screen with the assistance of X-Men: First Class screenwriters Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz? Well, Orci’s now saying that when this new Power Rangers flick arrives on the big screen, it will have a very important ingredient that will lead to universal success: continuity. “It’s got a continuity within the world,” says Orci. “I can’t tell you what, but it does have a continuity.” Which leads everyone who’s ever watched the series to say, “Power Rangers had continuity?” (more…)
Not going to San Diego Comic Con? Too bad, some of this fabulous art could have been yours if you were lucky/shrewd/early enough to get them. Featuring images from the fifth season of The Walking Dead and next summer’s blockbuster in waiting Jurassic World, these collectables will get fans mouths watering (or not, we nerds are so hard to predict).

Chances are that if you’re an original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan from the 80s and 90s, you are having a hard time accepting the new reboot produced from Michael Bay. To be fair the “fans” of the original comics and the 1990 film were never going to be satisfied with whatever this movie was going to be. The idea was to take material to another level for today’s youthful demographic and not just to appease overly-nostalgic fans. With that said, this latest behind-the-scenes video has the actors, doing what seems to be, brainwashing audiences on “how awesome this movie is”. (more…)
