It looks like everything we want to hear on the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past is going to be coming straight from Bryan Singer — or at least his Twitter page.
After revealing that Wolverine mainstay Hugh Jackman would return for yet another franchise film, the director has once again taken to the social media outlet to announce the return of Xavier School alumni Anna Paquin, Ellen Page and Shawn Ashmore. This could be a future indication of what we’re going to see in Days of Future Past as Page’s role as Kitty Pryde is essential to the overall storyline and the beginning of what many Marvel fans will know from the comic’s storyline.
HBO has released the first teaser trailer for the fifth season of True Blood, with the tag line, “In Bon Temps, Nothing Stays Buried Forever.” There’s no actual footage from the season in the trailer, but it’s sure to amp up any fan of the vampire/werewolf/faerie/witch melodrama.
Season five of True Blood will bring some new faces to Bon Temps in the forms of Valentina Cervi (Miracle at St. Anna) and Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: SVU). I really, really hope we are not exposed to naked Meloni. That would be unfortunate. Just sayin’.
Speaking of nude scenes, anybody know if there is a super cut of all the Anna Paquin sex scenes?
I’m sure you spend all of your time wondering where the child stars of movies past are now. We’ve compiled a fair amount of before and after pictures for y’all to check out, some of which you probably expect and some of which will be a surprise to you. Let’s get started!
Let’s start with something that we all expect to see. Taylor Momsen is most known for her role as Cindy Lou Who in the 2000 film, How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Over the course of the years, she landed a role on Gossip Girl and she’s now some badass singer chick. Or something. She blames her parents for her shitty attitude and bitchiness, actively tells young girls to twiddle themselves and flashes her tits at concerts. No big deal. She’s really matured!
HBO has renewed the hit show, True Blood, for a fifth season. What this means, really, is another twelve episodes of Bill Compton saying “Sookie” in the way that he does, and more sex and blood. It’s like watching a train wreck: it’s morbid and strange, and yet you just can’t look away.
This is what Michael Lombardo, president of HBO had to say:
I am thrilled that ‘True Blood’ continues to enjoy a phenomenal reception from both subscribers and critics. Alan Ball and his gifted team have devised the greatest thrill ride on TV.
And Alan Ball:
I remain amazed and delighted by the enthusiasm of our viewers. I can’t imagine having more fun than this.
True Blood is based on the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris, and is currently partway through its fourth season. The next season is set to air summer of 2012 and filming will start later this year in LA with Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer (who are both banging IRL and apparently hold nothing back while filming sex scenes), and the rest of their cast.
Witches, Panthers, and Vampires, Oh my! In this new trailer, for the widely popular HBO show True Blood, Sheriff Eric Northman takes center stage. As the vampires try to win back the human public, witches come into Bon Temps while Sookie is out and about with the Fairies. All the vamps will get new looks, and story lines that may unhinge your jaw permanently.
Everyone looks so delectable in this new trailer, and it’s not only appealing to the eye but leaves us very curious with each of the characters who are shown in precarious situations. Are you excited for Season 4, and how do you feel about the witches coming into play?
Leave your thoughts and comments below ‘cause nobody wants to have the vamps watching them through their windows because they didn’t comment. Well, I’m sure nobody would mind if their favorite vamp was watching, but whatever….put stuff in the box!

The other night the world saw Spike hand out a ton of awards at it’s annual Spike Scream awards (see the recap here). It also gave it’s viewing audience exclusive clips from the upcoming hits of the coming year, none as special as this special clip from the upcoming Walking dead series. Take a look at this glimpse of halloween’s best kept zombie series, courtesy of Spike:
Yes, it’s short, but that headshot was something else. Sure it has gore, which was a mean concern for the series but it was pulled off without a sense of overdoing it. Getting to listen to the crowd react is the second best thing next to Anna Paquin‘s face when they aired the clip:
Are you kidding me? This is a woman who showed of her ‘stackhouse’ in the first episode of season two’s True Blood. Being part of a series that regular showed blood, b00bage, and violence on a regular basis and she looks disgusted. Shame Anna, shame.
You look out the window and see the night sky is an interesting kaleidoscope of purple, gold, and green; the dark swirling clouds threaten storms of untold proportions. An alien mother ship hangs ominously over the burning city in the distance, spewing laser beams and attack crafts to the ground. The zombies outside beat a steady rhythm on your front door…wait a minute, is that Betty White? In the next room the TV anchor is droning on about the meteor headed toward earth bound for impact in eight days; as if it mattered. You grab the remote and flip through the channels, the meteor . . . zombies . . . aliens . . . man-eating frogs . . . zombies . . . Jersey Shore . . . meteor . . . tornadoes . . . some kind of western about four weird guys on horses . . . yeah, nothing on, at least that much hasn’t changed.
Not much else to do but go nail another board over that window, grab your baseball bat, a bottle of Tequila, your favorite snacks, and watch:

Those of you that have watched True Blood know that this isn’t the show that children should be watching just yet. Filled with more sex, violence and blood than most late night shows you’d never think this would even see the light of day. Now here’s where it get’s into the realm of “what the hell !” Sesame Street has pulled it’s own parody of the True Blood Series called “True Mud“, airing later this year.
While no child might know who Anna Paquin and Husband Stephen Moyer are, we could point out very quickly which puppets are which. Having it’s own parody opening, while short, was really funny to watch even at our age. It was a little unnerving to see a highly rated adult show be reduced to a child’s skit. Check it out for yourself below, just don’t drink a bottle of Tru Blood while watching this, you’ll just spit it on your screen.
Sesame street is now heading into is 41st season, you can now clap your hands.
So after two great seasons (and one okay season), HBO is looking to take it’s fangtastic show True Blood to the big screen. After what most likely will be two more blood filled, barely clothed seasons, the show will most likely make the jump onto the big screen. With Anna Paquin being no stranger to the big screen, and the show’s creator Alan Ball in the works to direct it seems like a winning combination. But it does make one wonder if this is really such a good idea. Yeah, Sex and the City did, it but is that really a category that True Blood wants to get pulled into? This seems to be a trend ever since Sex and the City had so much success because there are also rumors floating around about an Entourage movie as well. So do you guys think that True Blood will transfer well onto the big screen or be a huge bloody flop?
The following 6 page preview of IDW’s True Blood comic which comes out in July isn’t terrible. By terrible I mean it’s lacking the crazy sexy and slaughter of it’s live action counterpart. Sookie in a wet T-shirt contest hardly qualifies as “Pervy”, but definitely constitutes a “Naughty”. Though, give it another 20 pages and I’m sure all that dirty violence will be prevalent.
The plot was developed by show creator Alan Ball, along with series writers Elisabeth Finch and Kate Barnow, and co-written by David Tischman and Mariah Huehner . ”In the first storyline, Sookie and the rest of Bon Temps find themselves waiting in Merlotte’s bar for a strangely portentous raging storm to subside,” the release says. “Soon, they discover they’ve been trapped by an entity that feeds off of raw emotions and begins killing off the patrons one by one until his hunger is sated.” Sound interesting? As long as there is a naked Sookie and plenty of vampire sex then who cares?
