Nashville Gets SMASHED! With Cutting Edge Film, Music & Art Festival
Culturesmash   |  

CultureSmash Nashville

Nashville, Tennessee is hot, not just because of the nighttime drama but because it seems to be the next “it” city. The city already hosts one of the most successful and largest traditional film festivals in the south with the Nashville Film Festival. Now a group of art fans, filmmakers, and musicians are seeking to bring the city its first real underground festival (every big city seems to have a major festival and an underground one too).

CultureSmash Nashville is a more inclusive festival that NaFF though by dividing its space and time among a short film festival, a visual arts expo, and a live music showcase.

Malcolm Young - AC/DC

Back in April, AC/DC announced that one of the band’s founding members, Malcolm Young, would be taking a break from the band due to an undisclosed illness.

Syfy Has New Shows This Summer: ‘Dominion’ and ‘Defiance’
Culturesmash   |  

Syfy Channel Dominion

Syfy Channel’s Defiance returned last week for Season 2 following the premiere of Dominion, a new series based on the 2010 film Legion. Both series together made for a strong night of programming for Syfy with Dominion seeing a solid start. Compared to all ad-supported cable scripted drama series premieres year to date, Dominion ranks #4 in L+SD rating among both Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54, and #2 among Men 18-49 and Men 25-54. Kicking off the night at 8PM (ET/PT) with its Season 2 premiere, Defiance delivered 776K Adults 18-49 and 948K Adults 25-54, which is a solid return for basic cable.

Defiance was sold as a truly interactive experience when it premiered alongside a massively multilayer online video-game. Happenings in the game were supposed to effect the series. It appears though that the television series featuring genre favorite actress Julie Benz (Dexter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is outlasting the game. The series is set on Earth after a destructive battle with aliens. The world is now trying to rebuild with aliens and humans trying to live together.

Culturesmash   |  

Malcolm Young - AC/DC

There have been tons of rumors over the last few days about the rock band AC/DC retiring due to 61-year-old rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young being very ill. AC/DC is probably the least public band that has ever existed so getting real answers is tough.

Today the band finally released a brief statement (I mean brief) confirming that Young is ill and is stepping away from AC/DC.

When Marvel decided to to rip the Ultimate Universe apart, they made the decision to send in Galactus to handle that business. The shockwaves, of course, rippled through all of the Ultimate Comics Universe, but the main story took place in Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand. Now with that event series complete, Marvel has teased Survive, the next chapter in the retooling of the Ultimate Universe that follows the aftermath of the Cataclysm.

Survive #1 will begin the building of a new Ultimates team, it will reveal all of the heroes that died, and it will begin to reveal what will become of S.H.I.E.L.D. The book hits store shelves and digital apps on March 26, 2014, but is available for pre-order now. For now we have a preview of some of the art from the first issue of this new series – check it out here below.

Marvel’s latest universe-shattering event has been a pretty compact little story compared to other recent event stories such as Civil War that seemed to span way too many books and take forever to finish. The Cataclysm story will finish in only 5 issues with the February release of Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand #5 from writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mark Bagley.

We have a preview for you of what’s to come in Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand #5 — check it out here below.

Preview ‘King Conan: The Conqueror #1’ From Dark Horse

King Conan: The Conqueror #1 preview

In the wake of the announcement that the Star Wars comics line will be making an exodus from Dark Horse Comics, the publisher has been releasing plenty of teasers for what they have in store to replace the iconic franchise. Thus far we haven’t really seen a new series or franchise that’s as epic as Star Wars, but instead we’re being treated to a myriad of titles that offer up a wider scope of storytelling styles and genres. In the end the loss of Star Wars by Dark Horse may equal a gain for fans of alternative comic book stories with the company’s choices in filling the void.

We’ve already seen previews of the upcoming Tomb Raider and Terminator series and now we have a new Conan offering on the way titled King Conan: The Conqueror. In this new series, Conan is a fugitive on the run trying to find the key to regaining his throne.

King Conan: The Conqueror is written by Tim Truman with art from Tom├ís Giorello. King Conan: The Conqueror #1 will be released on February 26, 2014 and is available for pre-order now. We’ve got an 8-page preview of the first issue here below.

Culturesmash   |  

Paul Bettany As Archangel Michael In Legion

Sure Syfy Channel has a ton of reality television, but if those inexpensive shows help fluff the network’s budget for a few good scripted genre shows then they can hunt for ghosts wherever they like!

The network’s President, Dave Howe, announced yesterday that they have greenlit a new supernatural series to full season. The show is titled Dominion, and it is a sequel to the movie Legion, which starred Paul Bettany as archangel Michael, Dennis Quaid, Lucas Black, Adrianne Palicki, Tyrese Gibson, Charles S. Dutton, and Kevin Durand as archangel Gabriel.

Read more about the new show from the press release below.
