Star Wars Cantina karaoke with Billy Dee Williams! [video]

Chris Hardwick created a fun karaoke video as a part of the Course of the Force campaign that features one of the most iconic locations in the Star Wars sage; the Mos Eisley Cantina! Take a look as Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams!) takes the cantina stage as sings Jason Schwartzman's song "West Coast". As the song goes on the familiar faces around the cantina all start to sing long.  "Documented in a galaxy not so far away and shot on the Samsung Galaxy S 4, Lando Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams) hits up Karaoke Night at everyone's favorite hive of Star Wars scum and villainy, the Cantina on Tatooine! Lando performs a stirring rendition of WEST COAST, with a few appearances from some friends from this galaxy...Jason Schwartzman, Patton Oswalt, Carrie Keagan, Chris Hardwick and Mike Phirman!" Viewers should be warned however, although a fun video the song is a bit odd. Enjoy!

Two more clips emerge for The Wolverine! [video]

With only weeks until the release of The Wolverine, the amount of clips being released is climbing fast. Two more clips of James Mangold's film have made their way to the internet and this time fans will get to see Wolverine in another fight scene as well as a flashback scene that places Wolverine in Japan during World War II. At this point all they need to release is a good dialogue clip and then they should stop. It seems studios these days show so much of the film before it is in the theaters. All the same, fans love the sneak peek. Enjoy!

The Wolverine hits theaters on July 26, 2013.

And the second clip:

First official image of David Bradley playing William Hartnell for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary!

Fans of Doctor Who got a special treat today as the BBC has released the first official photograph of David Bradley in costume playing William Hartnell who was the first Doctor on Doctor Who! David Bradley will be playing Hartnell for the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special titled "An Adventure in Space and Time".  This special will explore the origins of the show.

It’s a wonderfully touching and subtle performance and I’m immensely proud of both him and the film.’" Bradley looks amazing as William Hartnell and I am very excited to see this special.

Gamers grow up but never forget!

Gaming is a big part of a lot of peoples' lives and they have many fond memories of gaming as a child. But like everyone else, gamers grow up. Games will come and go but sometimes there are those special games that make an impact and no matter how much older we get we'll always remember them. This photo perfectly captures that. In this great photo you see Nathan Drake from Uncharted  (older gamer) talking to and comforting Crash Bandicoot (younger gamer). I would love to see an updated Crash Bandicoot game be released sometime soon. It was such a great series.

What do you think of the photo? Any games from your childhood that will always hold a special place with you?

A big thank you goes out to my girlfriend, Jackie, for sending this to me!

See what George R. R. Martin's Iron Throne from A Game of Thrones really looks like!

Author George R.R. Martin has just revealed what the Iron Throne from his A Game of Thrones series really looks like. Fans of the HBO series all know what the throne looks like on the show. Moderate size, put together by melted swords. The throne from the HBO show can be seen below.

This, however, is not what the throne looks like in the books. At least it's not what Martin envisions when he writes them. "A dozen different artists have done versions of the Iron Throne over the years. Some have been very striking, some less so, but none of them have ever been quite RIGHT. Their versions never quite matched what I saw in my mind's eye." Martin certainly acknowledges the HBO version of the throne and realizes that when you mention his novels that that is the throne that most will picture. However, it's still not right. "The HBO throne has become iconic. And well it might. It's a terrific design, and it has served the show very well. There are replicas…

Take a look at the Captain America: The Winter Soldier teaser poster!

Marvel has just given fans the first teaser poster to Captain America: The Winter Soldier. It is a simple yet affective poster as it features only a heavily battle worn shield. You have to wonder what kind of battles Captain America is going to get into in this new movie for his shield to be so worn and scraped up. This poster is definitely exciting! What do you think of it?

Captain America: The Winter Soldier will hit theaters on April 4, 2014.

Find out what really started the brawl between Mario and Luigi in this fun fan film! [video]

Fans of Mario and Luigi may be curious as to why the tension between the two brothers grew to the point where they would enter the Smash Bros. tournament and fight against each other. Well it seems that the story goes all the way back to high school and of course centers around a girl. Leave it to brothers to have eyes for the same beauty.

This video, brought to you by RP WhaBam (who also created this stunning Starcraft fan film ), is a lot of fun to watch and despite being almost 6 minutes long, captures your attention nicely when the fight really breaks out. It's also a lot of fun to hear all the great Mario Bros. songs throughout the video. Brings back a lot of great memories playing the games. Great job, RP WhaBam!

A very big thank you goes out to Princess Daisy herself, Stacey Roy, who sent this video over to me to check out!

The villains for Guardians of the Galaxy are revealed!

After much debating from fans everywhere, and some tight lips over at the studio, the roles of the villains for the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy have been revealed! It appears that Benicio del Toro will be playing The Collector, Lee Pace will be playing Ronan The Accuser, and last but certainly not least, Karen Gillan will be Nebula.

Lets take a look at who these particular characters are:
"The Collector is one of the oldest characters in Marvel's universe, given that he dates back billions of years, protecting the universe in the way he sees fit. He can see, to an extent, the future, and it was he that foresaw Thanos, whose role in the Marvel cinematic universe has already been introduced, and is expected to be heavily expanded. Ronan The Accuser, meanwhile, first popped up in Fantastic Four comics, and he's a member of the Kree, an alien race. He's got a fair number of superhuman powers, and while originally a villain, he has shown a more heroi…
