‘Office Christmas Party’ Trailer: Tis The Season To Be Raunchy
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY header

If it is December, chances are you will probably be invited to a Christmas Party to celebrate Yule Tides and Season’s Greetings. Of course, at these parties there’s bound to be some egg nog with a little alcoholic kick to it, which leads to some sort of drunken shenanigans, dumping one’s feelings over the office crush, and a nice hangover the next morning.

Now, a new comedy called Office Christmas Party will explore all those regrettable themes. The film stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, and Olivia Munn, and since this is a movie, things get seriously out of hand.

Check out the new trailer below.

Why ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2’ SDCC Footage Won’t Be Released
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 concept art image

More often than not, you will find people begging to see footage from the Saturday Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con, even more so if that footage is from Marvel Studios. Though studios are vigilant when it comes to leaked footage, by the time it is out there, it has already been viewed by the world. Some studios like FOX make the decision not to show up in order to prevent any leaks from happening. But seeing as Marvel owes a bit of gratitude for their success to SDCC, they have to show up. Now they were on hand to show us a tiny bit of footage from Spider-Man: Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, and even make an announcement for Black Panther. But much of the audience’s excitement came from Guardians part, which showed us a bit of footage in the form of a clip and teaser trailer.

The teaser trailer will probably be released in the near future, although it may be a bit more polished and have some additional footage by that time. However, the clip of Baby Groot helping Yondu and Rocket escape from their prison cell may not appear online at all until after the actual film is released. Director James Gunn actually explained why you probably won’t see the clip any time soon. Check out the video here below.

Cullen Bunn is writing Conan! Okay, now that I got that out of the way, allow me to introduce you to Conan The Slayer #1. Being a life-long fan of everyone’s favorite Cimmerian, I always try to keep my eyes open for anything Conan. To be fair, I’ll read anything involving this character. But when it reads and feels just like something Robert E. Howard himself would have appreciated, then it’s really time to celebrate!

Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge

Written by Paul Krueger
Quirk Books
Release Date: June 7th, 2016

Bailey used to go through life living at the top – excellent grades, choices of top schools, a bright future. How did she end up cleaning vomit and running glassware for her high school BFF? AND… she’s back living with her parents. She’s hoping that her interview at Divinyl will result in bringing the success she was always sure she would have in life. Her bestie, Zane, was a bartender here at the Nightshade Lounge, his Uncle Garret’s bar, and he seemed a bit different than the guy she knew. He was more sure of himself, walked with a confidence that had he had back in school, she may have seen him as more, the way he saw her back then.

Such is the setup for Last Call at the Nightshade Lounge: A Novel of Magic and Mixology by Paul Krueger.

If I told you I was seeing Planet of the Apes in theaters in 2016, you’d assume I was watching the third film in the new series starring Andy Serkis in motion capture technology as Caesar. Thanks to TCM and their Big Screen Classics promotion, the original 1968 classic is back in theaters for only one more day. It premiered on Sunday, July 24th, at several theaters throughout New York City, and I was there with my entire family, including my 5-year daughter.

Preacher 1.9 Dominic Cooper

Preacher

AMC
Air date: Sunday, July 24, 2016, 9pm

Last week on Preacher, Jesse (Dominic Cooper) made his stand against Odin Quincannon (Jackie Earle Haley) and his cult-like acolytes of QM&P. After keeping them away from his family church and dealing with the nagging ghost of Eugene (Ian Colletti), he got knocked out by Donnie (Derek Wilson), who was able to withstand the pull of Genesis by shooting out his own eardrums. Jesse made one last deal with Quincannon: he gets to keep the church IF… he brings God to Annville next Sunday! Can Jesse follow through on his bold and crazy guarantee, or will he be forced to denounce the Lord in front of everyone while Odin turns his church into a new meatpacking factory complete with a food court?

Spoilers below if you have not seen this week’s Preacher:

Spider-Man: Homecoming title card

This past weekend, Marvel Studios hd something extra special to show their fans at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Aside from Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming made a very brief appearance to show Hall H attendees from exclusive footage (see our description of what was shown). Now, it’s very unlikely who were not in attendance will get to see this footage any time soon, but they’ll be able to get the entire film next year.

Here’s what we do know so far about the characters in director Jon Watts‘ Spider-Man film: Tom Holland is Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Zendaya plays Michelle, and the film will have a John Hughes vibe. But as for Tony Revolori, Jacob Batalon, and Laura Harrier, their characters have remained under wraps… until now. Check out who they play, and the connection their characters have to the Spider-Man lore here below.
