New Trailer For BETTER CALL SAUL Season 4 Continues To Tease Jimmy’s Transformation into Saul

Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) is about to turn into that lovably corrupt attorney, Saul Goodman, who was introduced to us in Breaking Bad. So far, over the course of three seasons of Better Call Saul, it's been a crazy anxiety fueled road watching him make this transformation. Now, that full transformation is going to happen.

The new trailer opens up with an unemployed Jimmy, mourning his brother Chuck’s death at his funeral. As Jimmy tries to get back up on his feet and make some cash, he ends up teaming up with Mike (Jonathan Banks) on a job and it looks like he's going to find himself way in over his head. Here's the synopsis for Season 4:

In Better Call Saul‘s fourth season, Chuck’s death catalyzes Jimmy McGill’s transformation into Saul Goodman. In the wake of his loss, Jimmy takes steps into the criminal world that will put his future as a lawyer — and his relationship with Kim — in jeopardy. Chuck’s death deeply affects former colleagues Howard (Patrick Fabian) and Kim as well, putting the two of them once again on opposite sides of a battle sparked by the Brothers McGill.
Meanwhile Mike takes a more active role as Madrigal Electromotive’s newest (and most thorough) security consultant. It’s a volatile time to be in Gus Fring’s employ, as Hector’s collapse sends shock waves throughout the Albuquerque underworld and throws the cartel into chaos — tearing apart both Gus and Nacho’s well-laid plans. While Gus changes course, Nacho finds himself in the crosshairs of deadly forces.

Better Call Saul returns to AMC on August 6, 2018. There will also be a Better Call Saul panel at Comic-Con later this month for fans to attend!

Tom Cruise Gets Chased Down By The Cops in MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT Clip and a New “Team” Featurette

Paramount Pictures released a new clip and featurette for director Christopher McQuarrie's Mission: Impossible - Fallout. The clip features Tom Cruise being chased down on a motorcycle by a bunch of cops in Paris. We've also got a new behind-the-scenes featurette that was released that focuses on Ethan Hunt and his core team which includes Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames. It also offers some insight on the new characters that are played by Henry Cavill and Rebecca Ferguson.

I've liked everything that I've seen from this movie so far. It looks like it's going to be a ton of fun and might end up being one of the best films in the franchise. I'm excited about seeing how the story of the film plays out. 

The best intentions often come back to haunt you. MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE – FALLOUT finds Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his IMF team (Alec Baldwin, Simon Pegg, Ving Rhames) along with some familiar allies (Rebecca Ferguson, Michelle Monaghan) in a race against time after a mission gone wrong. Henry Cavill, Angela Bassett, and Vanessa Kirby also join the dynamic cast with filmmaker Christopher McQuarrie returning to the helm.

The action film is set to be released in theaters on July 27, 2018.

Geralt’s Voice Actor Wants THE WITCHER 4 To Focus On Ciri

At the moment, CD Projekt RED does not have any plans on developing The Witcher 4 as they are currently preoccupied with Cyberpunk 2077. However, the voice actor of Geralt shared his thoughts on how the game should be if CD Projekt RED will decide to develop another sequel. 

In an interview with Gamereactor, voice actor Doug Cockle was asked if Geralt's cameo in SoulCalibur VI would be his last stint as the badass silver fox, to which he replied:

"If you're leading into The Witcher 4, I can only say I have no idea, although I think it will be," Cockle said to Gamereactor. "This is my own opinion, and CD Projekt RED knows what they are doing, and I have no idea what the plan is, but...If I was CD Projekt RED, I would make The Witcher 4, but I would be focusing on Ciri. In The Witcher 3 she hints at visiting other worlds, and I think a game around her visiting those different worlds would be a cool Witcher 4."

Well, Cockle's opinion on Geralt's story ending in The Witcher 3 is not that far off from what the developer said in the past. CD Projekt RED has been vocal before that Geralt's journey would end in The Witcher 3. 

What would you like to see in The Witcher 4 if CD Projekt RED decides to make it? Or should the series end with 3? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

Ron Howard’s Dark Comedy Army Medic Series 68 WHISKEY Lands at Paramount Network

ron-howards-dark-comedy-army-medic-series-68-whiskey-lands-at-paramount-network-social.jpg

Director Ron Howard (Solo: A Star Wars Story) has a new TV series in development called 68 Whiskey and the pilot was just picked up by Paramount Network. 

The series is described as being a dark comedy and it's an adaptation of an Israeli TV series. The story follows "a multicultural mix of men and women deployed as Army medics to a forward operating base in Afghanistan nicknamed 'The Orphanage.' Together, they endure a dangerous and Kafkaesque world that leads to self-destructive appetites, outrageous behavior, intense camaraderie and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose."

The series was created by co-creator of The Brink, Roberto Benabib. and it sounds like it could make for an interesting series. It seems to me like it might have some similarities to the classic series M.A.S.H.

Stan Lee Drops His $1 Million Lawsuit Against POW! Entertainment After Working Things Out

A couple of months ago Stan Lee announced that it was suing POW! Entertainment for a billion dollars. According to the suit, "Lee has macular degeneration — which causes deteriorating eyesight. The suit alleges that Pow! took advantage of his condition to get him to sign away an exclusive right to use his name to the Chinese company."

Well, it seems like all of this was a misunderstanding and POW! has been working things out with Lee behind-the-scenes to straighten things out. Now Lee has dropped the lawsuit and is now excited about the future of POW! Entertainment. Lee had this to say in a statement:

"The whole thing has been confusing to everyone, including myself and the fans, but I am now happy to be surrounded by those who want the best for me. I am thrilled to put the lawsuit behind me, get back to business with my friends and colleagues at POW! and launch the next wave of amazing characters and stories!"

Shane Duffy, CEO of POW! also released a statement saying:

"We are ecstatic that this ill-founded lawsuit has been dismissed and we look forward to working with Stan again to develop and produce the great projects that were put on hold when the lawsuit was filed. We recently got together with Stan to discuss our path forward and we and Camsing are pleased with his overwhelmingly enthusiastic reaction."

I have no idea what the story is behind this whole thing, but I imagine Lee may have been told some lies regarding POW! by people who don't have his best interests at heart and he was talked into filing the lawsuit. I have no idea, I'm just speculating there. But, It's good to see that all the parties involved with this were able to work things out and move forward. 

It is also noted in the press release that POW! "will deal appropriately, through all legal means, with others who attempt to interfere with Stan’s well-being and his relationship with POW! and to prevent anything like this from happening again."

Director Peyton Reed Tried To Get Rick Moranis in ANT-MAN

director-peyton-reed-tried-to-get-rick-moranis-in-ant-man-social.jpg

Every time Rick Moranis comes up in the news, I'm always reminded of how freakin' funny he was and how much I miss seeing him in the movies. It makes me sad that he doesn't make movies anymore, but I do understand why he left the business behind him.

Turns out director Peyton Reed actually tried to get him out of retirement to play a role in the first Ant-Man film! He made the reveal during Screen Junkies' 'Honest Reactions' show, where they got him to watch the Honest Trailers' take on the first Ant-Man. It was during which, that he mentioned his plans to have Rick Moranis make a cameo appearance in the first film:

"We actually, at one point, attempted to get a Rick Moranis cameo in the first movie - still during the period, I think, where he wasn't doing so much acting. I think he's now gonna be on the CTV Scorsese-directed thing, which I'm super psyched about. But always, still, an unchecked box for me."

It would have been cool to see Moranis on the big screen again, but it would have been better if it was more than just a cameo. I don't blame him for turning down the offer. Maybe if there was a bigger role for him to take on, but even then Moranis might have said no. 

Moranis retired from acting in 1997 to take care of his kids after his wife died. But, Moranis is set to appear in Netflix's SCTV reunion documentary. Maybe that will be the first of many more onscreen appearances. Maybe Reed can try to get him again when Ant-Man 3 roles around. 

It would just be great to see Moranis on the big screen again. I don't know if that will ever happen, but I hope that it does. Ant-Man would be the perfect franchise for him as well, after all, he already played with shrinking people down in size in Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.

The creator of Goosebumps, R.L. Stein, is jumping into comics again, this time with BOOM! Studios. He recently wrote a five-issue Man-Thing miniseries for Marvel Comics that turned out great! So, it's awesome to hear that we've got more comics coming from him. 

According to Publishers WeeklyStine signed a world rights deal with the comic publisher, in which Stein will write four graphic novels under BOOM!'s KaBoom! imprint. Those projects are described as a supernatural middle-grade series. The first of these horror comics will be released in the fall of 2019.

Unfortunately, we don't have any details on the stories that these graphic novels will tell, but as a fan of Stein and his work, I'm looking forward to seeing what he ends up creating. 

Billy Dee Williams Confirmed To Play Lando in STAR WARS: EPSIODE IX!

Here's some great news that is sure to get Star Wars fans excited! After months of rumors and speculation, THR has confirmed that Billy Dee Willaims will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian in Star Wars: Episode IX!

This bit of casting news makes me so freakin' happy! I was really hoping that Williams would be brought back for at least one more Star Wars film and now it's happening. There are absolutely no details on how big of a part he'll play or what his role in the story will be, which means the fans can speculate all they want about how he'll fit into it. It would be great to see him have a decent sized role in the story. Maybe this time, Lucasfilm won't kill off a character from the original trilogy.

Episode IX is being directed by J.J. Abrams and will star Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Adam Driver. Keri Russell was also just recently joined the cast of the film, but there's no information on who she'll be playing.

The movie is set to open in theaters on December 20th, 2019. So, how do you want to see Lando utilized in this third and final chapter of the latest Star Wars saga trilogy? I hope he's still sporting a cape!
