Kids today have the best toys, video games, animation, and programming of any generation before them, and yet, they still get down with Mister Rogers. ABC news did a piece on the lasting legacy of Fred Rogers, and in that segment showed a group of kids watching an episode of his series. All of the kids loved it, and said they'd watch it again every day if given the chance. I think this just inspired me to find a bunch of his dvds to keep for my children in the future, what about you?:
I swore to myself I wouldn't get scared watching this trailer for The Nun, but some things are inevitable. In my defense, The Nun is one of the most frightening characters to emerge from The Conjuring series, so it's not surprising that even this rather long teaser trailer had at least one jump scare in it! I'm just hoping I can hold it together better in the theater when this film comes out September 7th. Check out the first footage of the new film below, and let us know what you think!
When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
“The Nun” stars Oscar nominated Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (TV’s “American Horror Story”) as Sister Irene, and Jonas Bloquet (“Elle”) as local villager Frenchie. The cast also includes Charlotte Hope (TV’s “Game of Thrones”) as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (“Toni Erdmann”) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her “Conjuring 2” role as the title character.
Other Marvel characters may be keeping quiet about their characters fates, but Jeff Goldblum is feeling pretty confident about The Grandmaster's chances of surviving Avengers: Infinity War. The actor stated as much in a recent interview with Digital Spy, and explained why even Thanos can't kill The Grandmaster:
“Grandmaster is more superheroed than all of them put together. You can’t kill me, I’m like a vampire. I’m deathless and I can kill people by looking at them. Or I can resurrect them just by looking at them and thinking of them. I can do everything. Being able to do all of that, all I want to do is play games. So really I’m everywhere and nowhere. I’m like Keyser Söze.”
He's not wrong by saying any of that, although I doubt whether or not he really knows if The Grandmaster survived Thanos' snap or whether or not the Marvel universe will see him again. Honestly, saying he survived is a win-win for Goldblum. Either Marvel will never reveal whether he lived or died and he can continue to say he survived and no one will battle him on it, or fans get so excited about the prospect The Grandmaster is alive Marvel hits him up for a brief cameo scene in Avengers 4. Do you think Goldblum knows for a fact The Grandmaster survived, or is he just talking out of his ass?
Amazon saved The Expanse in the 11th hour of its cancellation, and one Amazon executive is saying that's thanks in large part to the show's fans. Amazon Studios CEO Jennifer Salke said that while the company had been looking into saving the sci-fi series initially, it wasn't until fans began to tweet, commission planes to fly over the company headquarters, and celebrities started emailing Jeff Bezos before it became clear just how important the show was (via i09):
“There were airplanes circling us, I was having cakes delivered, there was a whole thing happening. And then really smart people, whose opinions I really value creatively, started reaching out to me, saying, ‘have you seen this show, The Expanse, it’s actually great.’ I hadn’t so I spent some time, I watched the show and I was like, this show is actually really well done, why is nobody watching it?
At the same time, Jeff Bezos was getting emails from everyone from George R.R. Martin to every captain of industry, like the founder of Craigslist, and they were all writing, saying, there’s this show, it’s so great, you have to see it, you have to buy it or save it.”
This is just further evidence that fan efforts work (unless you're a Firefly fan) guys, so be sure to advocate for your favorite shows and join efforts to save them! Now if Amazon would just save Lucifer I'm sure every geek would be Amazon Prime subscribers!
If you weren't aware, Kanye West and Rick and Morty's Justin Roiland have this weird bromance going on. It all started when the rapper declared the comedy series as his favorite show of all time, and somehow we've gotten to the point where Roiland is sending personalized birthday songs to Kanye for his birthday. It's weird, but I'll be honest I'm mostly jealous that Kanye got his own Rick and Morty birthday song and I didn't. Check it out below:

What would happen if Naruto, Luffy, Goku, and basically all of your favorite anime characters got together in a video game? Most people wouldn't even bother with the thought because it sounds so unbelievable, but Bandai Namco has shocked the world. They've got a new fighting game called Jump Force on the way, which combines all those characters, and many more. Take a look:
They even managed to get Light and Ryuk in there?! Suffice to say, anime fans are going to want to play this new fighting game, which is currently slated to release in 2019. Share with us what you think in the comments and check out this additional footage from the game below:
Last night at E3 Bethesda poked fun at itself with a funny skit. A commercial for Skyrim: Very Special Edition featuring Keegan Michael Key was played to parody just how often the company re-releases its most popular game on different platforms:
The commercial was a hilarious joke, but it turns out Bethesda took things even further than that! If you happen to have an Amazon Alexa in your home and ask it to play Skyrim, you'll actually get the same command prompts that Key does in this commercial! Try it out and give Bethesda some credit for taking an awesome joke too far.
If this is the beginning of a trend to dress up drunk and passed out people as Pixar characters, I'm all for it. At least in this case where this guys friends decided to make their friend look like Woody from Toy Story by putting "ANDY" on his foot and a cowboy hat on his head. That alone was ok enough, but then they through on the Randy Newman and put strings on his hands to make him dance, and that really makes this video worth a watch! Check it out below:
Johnny Knoxville has made a career out of injuring himself, and while I'm sure he has a few regrets, he seems pretty happy with the life he's lived so far. That's super surprising to hear when you look at the amount of injuries this guy has sustained in 3 seasons of Jackass, a few movies, and the various other stunt films he's done. Listen to Knoxville break down some of the worst injuries of his career in the video below, and let us know which one you think was the worst:
How It's Made is one of my favorite shows on television, so obviously I was jazzed when they uploaded a new video to YouTube for the first time in a hot minute. This time around, they uploaded a video showing how Pringles get made, which is a rare treat for the show. Usually when I see something like this get made on the show, it's like an offbrand of what you'd actually want to see. This one is the real deal, and maybe I'm geeking out too hard about this, but whatever let me have this moment! Check out the video below, and let us know your opinion on How It's Made:
