Minority Report
Season 1 Episode 10: “Everybody Runs”
Directed by Greg Beeman
Written by Max Borenstein & Kevin Falls
Created by Max Borenstein
Starring Stark Sands, Meagan Good, Wilmer Valderrama, Nick Zano, Daniel London, Laura Regan, Zhane Hall, Li Jun Li, Reed Diamond
Air Date: Monday, November 30th, 2015, 9pm

Is losing three lives worth saving thousands? Director Blomfeld (Reed Diamond) would say so. There is a terrorist group, Memento Mori, planning something big and Hawk-Eye, the prized “predictive policing” program isn’t cutting it. His plan is to reinstate pre-crime, and lock the pre-cogs back in a bigger, better milkbath. He knows they’re out there; they nearly caught Agatha (Laura Regan) and with Lt. Blake (Wilmer Valderrama) now in the know about Dash’s real identity, it seems only a matter of time before Agatha’s vision comes true.

Spoilers for the finale below.

Disney’s ‘Zootopia’: Making A Movie That’s Never Been Seen “Be-Fur”
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  


Disney’s upcoming animated Zootopia is a buddy cop comedy that sees the return of talking animals. But it is something unlike anything you have seen before. That’s because this film will feature anthropomorphic, bipedal animal characters in a modern world with no humans.

But directors Bryon Howard (Tangled, Bolt), co-director Rich Moore (Wreck-It Ralph), and producer Clark Spencer (Lilo and Stitch, Winnie The Pooh) didn’t just set out to make another generic talking animal film. They wanted to give Disney fans and audiences of all ages something substantial, something a person could believe in if a place like Zootopia actually existed.

So they set off to do research on almost everything from the way an animal moves all the way down to the individual strands of fur on their body. And when you combine that with a great story, and the classic Disney tradition, you get the makings of a film that is not only entertaining, but has the potential to be great.

Earlier this Fall, Geeks Of Doom was part of a group of journalists who were invited to see how a film like Zootopia comes together, the amount of research that is put into the film to design the look and feel of the characters and their surroundings, and what it takes to get the story just right. Below you will get to see what we learned about the 2016 film, the tour that we took on their temporary campus while the original animation studio underwent renovations, and much more.

Batman v Superman Header

A teaser video for Zack Snyder‘s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice aired tonight during FOX’s Gotham, and you can watch it here below right now!

It’s short. It’s intense. It’s to the point. Batman is caught. He joins several men chained up by their wrists in some type of underground pit. As the noise builds, we peer out towards the laddered exit where Superman drops in sending a cloud of dust and sand at the captives. The armored guards kneel before him, as if bowing to their deity. Superman (Henry Cavill) looks pissed and he rips Batman’s mask clean off, revealing the identity of Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck). He glares back, Superman stares off at the mask of his seemingly fallen adversary… roll credits.

The boy is really shy. has a crush on Supergirl, and gets caught up in the train bomb scare. Lucy Lane (Jenna Dewan-Tatum) asks Kara for James (Mechad Brooks) advice. The big bad of the episode were 2 bombs – one at Maxwell Lord’s (Peter Facinelli) train launch, and the other at an airport. Kara chooses the train because of Cat’s son, and sends the DEO to the airport. James also runs to the airport because that’s where Lucy went. Maxwell Lord seems to be behind some of the nefariousness.

Bloodbath Band Photo 2009

Bloodbath is a long-running supergroup consisting of a “who’s who” of Swedish death metal musicians. The band has, at various points, consisted of members of Opeth, Katatonia, Edge of Sanity, and Paradise Lost. They have issued four full-length albums, two EPs, and two DVDs since their inception in 1998.

Original singer Mikael Åkerfeldt left the band to concentrate on his duties as the leader of Opeth and was replaced by Paradise Lost singer Nick Holmes for last year’s spectacular album Grand Morbid Funeral.

This week’s Massive Metal Monday track takes us back to Akerfeldt’s final album with the band. From 2008’s The Fathomless Mastery, this is “Hades Rising.”

Captain America: Civil War Captain America Iron Man Spider-Man

Sony sharing the film rights to Spider-Man opened bold new possibilities for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. By making the deal with Disney, this meant that the webslinger could play in the Marvel sandbox, and it wasn’t long until it was announced that a new Spider-Man would be introduced into the MCU in Captain America: Civil War. Tom Holland will play the Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, and is already prepping for his solo flick. Marisa Tomei is the only other actress confirmed for a role, she’ll play Aunt May. But as to who else could star in the film, that is still unknown.

But that isn’t stopping rumors from swirling. One of the first rumors to pop up surrounding Spidey’s upcoming solo film is that Iron Man and Captain America could make an appearance in it. Check out how this all started in the video below.
