So last week the trailer for Terminator Genisys was released. After watching it I’m not quite sure what to make of it. Is it a prequel? Sequel? Reboot? Some prequel/sequel/reboot like when JJ Abrams did Star Trek? All I know is there’s no Christian Bale and Sarah Connor is played by Daenerys Targaryen and there’s an Asian T1000 played by the guy who played Storm Shadow in the live action GI Joe movies.

Here’s the trailer for you if your haven’t watched it yet.


A few weeks ago it was announced that ABC would be canceling Selfie. I never watched it. Hell, I don’t think I ever really heard about it except for a bus ad I drive passed on my way home from work. All I know is that it starred Karen Gillan, AKA the blue evil chick from Guardians of the Galaxy/Chick who ate a lightbulb cause of that freaky mirror in Oculus and that John Cho, AKA Harold from Harold and Kumar do stuff and the new George Takei in the new Star Trek movies.

If it helps here’s the overview from wikipedia:

The series follows the life of Eliza Dooley, a woman obsessed with the idea of achieving fame through the use of social media platforms, including Instagram where she posts selfies. She begins to worry that “friending” people online is not a substitute for real friendship, and she seeks help from Henry Higgs, a marketing image guru.

The character names are a reference to Eliza Doolittle and Henry Higgins, the main characters of the 1912 George Bernard Shaw play Pygmalion, further popularized by the 1956 musical My Fair Lady. In the play and musical, Henry is tasked with improving Eliza’s social status, and ends up succeeding all too well; an eventual romantic relationship between the two is hinted at, but never shown.

This was one of those things I probably would have gotten into eventually if I only saw a single episode. Unfortunately it’s too late for me now. Maybe I can binge watch it on Netflix like I did with Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23

Hell, I will sit through it just so I can see this scene of Karen Gillan trying to seduce John Cho by shaking it to Wiz Khalifa’s “We Dem Boyz.”


A few days ago the teaser trailer for the Avengers: Age of Ultron was released and it looks pretty freaking sweet. Aside from seeing Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Quicksilver, and a full view of Ultron we’re also teased with a few seconds of RDJ decked out in Hulkbuster armor going toe to toe with the Hulk, while a freaky remix of “I’ve got no Strings” plays (really clever Disney).

A couple people on the internet have dissected the trailer carefully and they are suspecting a major Easter Egg is being hinted in it: the Black Panther is coming. Yep, the Wakandan King could be in Avengers 2 or at the very least could be coming to the big screen. According to Uproxx, the two major things that suggest the Black Panther are coming are:

- The opening scenes in the trailer look like they’re in South Africa which is… on the same continent as Wakanda, or something? (I dunno it’s a freakin’ fictional country
– There’s also a guy in the trailer who looks like Ulysses Klaw, the sound-based villain whose origin is closely tied to the Black Panther’s.

There’s another theory floating around the internet that the version of Ultron in the film will be made of Vibranium, and Vibranium just happens to come from Wakanda, so yeah  all these facts tied together do make it sound very likely that we’ll see glimpses of Wakanda which could mean that we’ll be seeing the Black Panther very soon.

I for one have my own theory on Avengers: Age of Ultron and that is it is a a sequel to Less Than Zero. I mean after all it is Robert Downey Jr. vs. James Spader. For all we know Ultron could try to force Iron Man to give him a robo BJ in exchange for some repulsor-powered crack or something.

Oh well, enjoy the trailer


2 weeks ago the Simpsons started their 25th season with a couch gag by Don Hertfeldt. Aside from this couch gag being fucking weird as hell it also answered the question of what the Simpsons would look like in the year 10,535.

I have no idea what the hell is going on so just go ahead and watch it for yourself

 


So last week Sesame Street released another 1 of their parody lesson short movies and once again it is freaking awesome. This time it’s a Star Wars parody aimed at teach kids self control titled “Star S’mores”.

While most of the characters are played by throwaway puppets we do see Cookie Monster play devilish rogue, Flan Solo and Grover as Groda.

Watch the video below to see how great it is.


So it turns out nobody is immune from the ALS Ice Bucket challenge. A few weeks ago Cookie Monster was nominated by Rachel Ray and he did it and in turn he nominated Maria from Sesame Street, Neil Patrick Harris, and the Kid President, Janelle Monae, and Groover.

Check it out below.


The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is just a few weeks away and just in time the theme song has been released, an EDC/Dubstep/Hip Hop collaboration between Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa, and Ty Dolla $ign and featuring Kill The Noise and Madsonik titled Shell Shocked.

This is just another WTF to come out of this movie.

Listen to the new song here.

And while you’re at it listen to it in the new trailer here.

Try to watch the trailer to the end. You’ll see the Turtles dancing in an elevator for some reason. Or if you don’t have the attention span to watch the video just watch this gif I got from Uproxx.

And in case you’re staring at it thinking “WTF” no you’re not hallucinating things, Leonardo is freakin’ twerking, also it looks like Donatello is jacking off his bo staff.
