2 new clip for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy show the film's mix of seriousness with humor! [video]

Two more clips have surfaced for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and they are a lot of fun. The first clip treats fans to a scene between Drax (Dave Bautista) and Star Lord (Chris Pratt). Gamora (Zoe Saldana) is in the scene as well but she is a little busy being choked by Drax to speak. The scene plays out with a pretty funny dialogue between Drax and Star-Lord about women and plans to kill Ronan the Accuser.

The second clip features a prison escape being broken down by Rocket Raccoon to Gamora, and Star-Lord. Plans do not always go according to plan however. The Guardians find this out the hard way. This clip will surely make you laugh. Enjoy!

Guardians of the Galaxy will be in theaters on August 1, 2014.

Doctor Who Season 8 premiere to hit select theaters! See Doctor Who on the big screen!

Exciting news, Doctor Who fans! The BBC has announced that the Season 8 premiere will be heading to select theaters so that fans can once again see the Doctor on the big screen! The premiere episode is titled "Deep Breath".
"Directed by acclaimed director Ben Wheatley (Sightseers, A Field in England) and written by lead writer and executive producer Steven Moffat, the beginning of the Twelfth Doctor’s era stars Peter Capaldi as the Doctor, Jenna Coleman as his companion Clara Oswald and sees the return of fan favourites the Paternoster Gang - Madame Vastra (Neve McIntosh), Jenny Flint (Catrin Stewart) and Strax (Dan Starkey) – in a pulse-racing adventure through Victorian London."
The theaters screenings will happen in England on Saturday, August 23, 2014 the same day as the television premiere. Unfortunately, the US and Canada screening will be on Monday, August 25, 2014 in select theaters. It feels odd having the theater screening two days after the episode airs for free on BBC America. The BBC has stated that there will be some extra content seen in the theaters but this content will be made available to everyone in the future.

At the moment there is no information on which theaters will be showing the screening or how much tickets will cost. Stay tuned to the official Doctor Who Cinema website or the BBC America Facebook page for more details.

Digital plans for Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra are revealed!

Nickelodeon has officially revealed their new digital plan for the show The Legend of Korra
"Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT cancelled, 2) the remaining episodes will roll out weekly on and the Nick app beginning August 1, as well as on platforms like Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Hulu."

Are you okay with this format change for the show? I'm glad it'll be on at least where I can watch it for free. Personally, I rather not pay for it until the DVD / Bluray comes out.

A big thank you to my friend Stephanie for letting me know this information was released!

All of Batman's suits are on display and that includes the newest suit that will be worn by Ben Affleck in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Below are pictures of the cowl and cape that Affleck will be wearing. (Anyone else notice how Batman won't be able to turn his neck again?)

What do you think of the cowl and cape now that we can take a better look at them?

Exclusive Ant-Man poster revealed at San Diego Comic-Con!

An exclusive concept art poster was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con for Marvel's Ant-Man that features actors Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. The art was done by Marvel artist Andy Park and it shows off the suit that Paul Rudd will be wearing in the film. Michael Douglas plays the original Ant-Man and creator of the suit, Hank Pym, while Paul Rudd is playing Scott Lang, a thief who steals the suit for his own personal needs but soon changes his ways for the greater good.

The poster looks incredible and I cannot wait for the release of this film!

Bryan Konietzko, creator of The Legend of Korra, announces a change for the show to be announced at San Diego Comic-Con!

Bryan Konietzko, creator and writer of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, has just posted the following image to his official tumblr.

It appears that the ratings of the show have dipped low enough to force Nickelodeon to make some unfortunate decisions. Right now there is no official news but everything will be revealed this weekend at San Diego Comic-Con. This digital initiative could likely mean that episodes will simply appear on for free or Hulu but it is also likely that they will appear for a fee on sites like iTunes and Amazon. I can only hope that Season 3 will be allowed to finish on Nickelodeon and perhaps then have Season 4, which is already underway, move to the digital initiative. But at the moment we can only wait for the official SDCC announcement. I really hope this all ends well. I really love this show.

A big thank you goes out to my friend Julian for the heads up on this matter!
