The first poster for The Flash Season 5 has been released and it gives us our first official look at Grant Gustin sporting his brand new suit. Cisco has obviously been busy coming up with something fresh for his friend. I'll be honest, it doesn't really look that different from the previous suits he's worn in the past.
The biggest change I can see in the cowl where the bottom half doesn't cover up Barry's neck, cheekbones, or chin. It's more comic accurate. I guess they felt he should be showing more skin.
Check out the full image below and tell us what you think of the new suit design! The Flash returns to the CW on October 9th.
Weird Al Yankovic and Weezer got together to perform a cover of Toto's "Africa," and I can't imagine a better video to kick off the weekend. Unfortunately, Weird Al doesn't enter until about midway through the video, but when he does the crowd goes wild! Young me would be freaking out watching this, although present day me is doing the same. Check it out below!:
I suppose I never thought about it before this video, but there was a lot of spooky stuff for kids to watch in the 90s. Sure, the generation before us was watching slasher films like there was no tomorrow, but we certainly seem to have things better than the current generation who only gets their scares from video games. This video summarizes the best children's horror from the 90s, so if you're one of those kids who liked spooky stuff from back in the day, check this out:
Fans of The Seven Deadly Sins may be sad to hear that the creator is planning to end the series in about a year. In an article with Da Vinci magazine, series creator Nakaba Suzuki said that he plans to end the series after 40 volumes. This means we’re in the home stretch as volume 32 was released in June and volume 33 is set to release this month. The article also mentions that Suzuki believes the ending will be worthy of a shonen. I’m sad that it seems to be coming to end in the not too distant future, but the thing that makes me not go crazy is that Suzuki revealed that he’s had the ending planned since he started the manga. I think that is one of the key components to a great story. Whether it be comics, manga, TV series, etc. I think everyone should be required to know exactly how it will end before they’re allowed to start.
Is it time for the series to conclude, or do you wish it was continuing?
Another classic movie gets an anniversary that makes me feel older than I want to be. Hocus Pocus has turned 25-years-old and in celebration, Disney is releasing three different 25th anniversary Blu-ray sets and Funko POP! is releasing vinyl figures of the three main characters which include Winifred (Bette Midler), Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Mary (Kathy Najimy).
The first Blu-ray set is a regular standard edition that you can buy on Amazon and several other retailers. We don't know if there will be any new special features available on the Blu-ray release, but I'm sure it will include some stuff that fans have never seen before.
The second is a Target exclusive version of the Hocus Pocus which comes with a 40-age gallery book giving fans a behind the scenes look at the film.
Then the third and last Hocus Pocus Blu-ray is a Best Buy exclusive. It comes with a Steelbook case, which has been designed to look like the spellbook from the movie. Unfortunately, it's not made out of human skin and the moving eyeball is not included.
Below you'll find the Funko POP! figures that I know fans are going to want to get their hands on.
In Disney’s Hocus Pocus, Academy Award nominee Bette Midler (Best Actress, 1991, For the Boys), stars with Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex and the City) and Kathy Najimy (Sister Act) as three wild witches who return from seventeenth-century Salem for a night of zany fun and comic chaos. After they’re conjured up by unsuspecting pranksters, the tricky trio sets out to cast a spell on the town and reclaim their youth. But first they must outwit three feisty kids determined to foil their scheme!
One of Keanu Reeves first roles in Hollywood has come back to haunt him. The Late Late Show With James Corden unearthed a classic Coca Cola ad from the 80s featuring the veteran actor in his younger years, and the clip is so much better to watch once you hear about all the preparation that went into filming the actual commercial. Reeves even admits he shaved his legs for the role to better get into the mind of his cyclist character! Check it out below:
Henry Cavill wants to play Geralt in Netflix's Witcher series, and BossLogic just convinced me that's something that can happen. This fake poster of the actor done up as the character gave me chills, and I'm praying someone at Netflix has seen it as well. Check it out below and share your thoughts on it:
I've got a very cool set of photos for you to check out that Disney fans are going to absolutely love! These photos come from artist Keith Laping, who is an Interactive Design Manager at Disney. For fun, he creates whimsical paper cutouts of classic Disney characters and moments and holds those cutouts up against real-life scenes at Disneyland theme parks. He then snaps a picture and posts them on Instagram.
The whole goal of this was to "bring that paper magic into Disneyland." He says, "This style with its interaction between the paper illustration and the environment intrigued me. When translating to my art, I wanted the cutouts to interact with an entire environment, but a detailed illustration would get lost in the composition so I resorted to using a solid color."
You can check out his collection of photos below! What are your thoughts on what he's doing here?
The criminals approach your home, they've been casing the joint for months. Just as they successfully disable the alarm and walk in the door, they freeze. They've learned your schedule enough to know you shouldn't be home right now, and yet, there's two men having a drawn out conversation about a podcast they should start up in the near future over in the kitchen. The burglars leave, and Alexa just saved your home from being robbed.
Yep, Alexa's latest away feature (via Tech Radar) includes a list of scripted conversations that are meant to convince any would-be intruders that someone is home despite the fact that there isn't. The product hails from Hippo Insurance and is free to enable for American users for the time being. The conversation isn't just limited to two guys discussing podcasts, however, it also includes an overworked stay at home mom, or a mother instructing her daughter on how to assemble a dresser over the phone.
Kids today have it so simple! Imagine the work Kevin McAllister had to go through to achieve a similar effect!
Ewan McGregor and Hayley Atwell are side by side in Christopher Robin, and they're also side by side in this video answering the webs burning questions about them. Surprisingly, McGregor's search doesn't mention Star Wars until the fifth line! Unfortunately, the actor didn't have any big reveals in the video, but I have to say he's looking younger these days than he did when he was doing the prequels! Check out both answering questions below:
