Possible First Advertising Image from Thor: Ragnarok

HOLY DAMN...it is time. Maybe. Possibly. No idea where this came from but it landed squarely in my email box and I've been geeking out over it ever since. It's no surprise to people that have been keeping tabs that Hulk will get his due screen time in the third Thor film, after both were absent from Captain America: Civil War, but people were wondering just how much we might see the two titanic brawlers side-by-side. This new image might shed some light...or just make the lot of you skeptical that this is what we'll get in the last 10 minutes of the film. NON BELIEVERS!!

Barbie: The Gamer Grill

Universal Home Video Barbie Video Game Hero Blu-ray
Barbie has had more jobs than any 100 people may have had in their lifetime. She's been to space, blinded us with science, donned a cape for super-heroics, gone full stealth as a spy and..umm..worked at McDonalds. In recent years, Mattel has been pushing to shatter the misconceptions of Barbie and her opulent lifestyle with marketing geared toward empowering little women to be anything they can dream. Today, we learned about a straight to DVD Barbie movie in which avid gamer Barbie is magically transported into her video game universe. The first part of that statement is something I heartily give massive thumbs up for, as women in gaming are still getting beat up out there, and this should not be the state of things. The second part could provide potential, unintentional hilarity...

Anne Rice Recovers Rights to the Vampire Chronicles

It's been years since the vampire Lestat sought to teach Louis about the night and all its beauty. For some, the film was amazing. For others, it was miscast and void of all the magic that propelled the reader through every book. As we moved into the second installment, it was clear the new film's creators didn't "get" the author's material and the result was an odd mess best left to midnight screenings and a cult movie status. Hollywood has always had an uneasy relationship with authors and even producers that expound on their love for the source material sometimes turn out an adaption that makes us question if they really read the book at all. When the party is over, we are left to wonder what the author can do to reclaim their written necromancy. Today, we live in the age of second chances, and Anne Rice is ready to bring her pale children before us once more...
