Late on Thursday, Katy Perry released a brand new single that’s available right away for streaming – or buying. The new song is called Rise, and it celebrates a special event of the year, the upcoming 2016 Rio Olympics.
As if you didn’t have enough entertainment to keep you preoccupied this month already, Netflix has an intriguing original series launching tomorrow called Stranger Things. We shared the first trailer for the series a little over a month ago, but on the eve of the show’s launch, Netflix has shared the first eight minutes of the pilot on YouTube. And they’re definitely worth watching.
During a recent appearance on NBC’s morning show Today, award-winning actor Bryan Cranston revealed that he not only has world-class acting chops but that he’s also quite adept at impressions. After a few minutes spent discussing his upcoming movie The Infiltrator with Carson Daly, Daly asked the former Breaking Bad star what type of role or historical figure he’d like to play next. And interestingly enough, Cranston said he’d like to play Donald Trump.
AMC trolled The Walking Dead fans twice during season 6 when it comes to the death of a major character. It staged its own Jon Snow moment early in the season, with Glenn surviving what looked like certain death. Then, during the season finale, it toyed with our hearts by choosing not to disclose who Negan killed with his trusted bat Lucille.
With a few months to go until Season 7’s premiere will solve that mystery, there’s new evidence to suggest we might already know whom Negan killed. And it’s not the person you expect it to be… but it’s still very bad news. Beware, though, spoilers follow.
There are two categories of Game of Thrones people: those who have seen every episode and can’t get enough of it, and those who haven’t seen any of them but have had enough of it. Whether you’re a Game of Thrones veteran or you’re avoiding the show at all costs, you simply have to watch the following video. It’s almost eight minutes of pure Samuel L. Jackson awesomeness, as he explains everything that has happened on Game of Thrones so far. More →
No one was convinced that Ghostbusters 3 would be a good idea. Even fewer people were convinced that a Ghostbusters reboot without the original cast would be a good idea. And yet, here we are, 30 years later, and the new Ghostbusters is not the disaster that many expected (or even hoped) it might be.
In fact, most critics seemed to actually like it.
I have to be perfectly honest: I hated the Fast & Furious franchise the first time I saw one of the movies. It was just so… cheesy. And the acting was… not great. But then they starting playing them on TV all the time and I got sucked into watching a few of the movies. Now, I really can’t get enough. Yes they’re cheesy and no, none of the actors will be winning any Oscars anytime soon. But the movies are insanely entertaining — and thanks to Amazon’s huge Prime Day 2016 sale, you can get them all on DVD or Blu-ray and digital HD for next to nothing. More →
They say you shouldn’t pick a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel. So what about about YouTube-heckling a comedian with his very own writing team and a lot of spare time?
Last Week Tonight‘s John Oliver is off the air for a few weeks, and as per usual, he’s filling the time with a few web-only short clips. This week, we’re getting his verdict on the ‘fan mail’ he often receives, through the medium of YouTube comments.
Battlebots is very transparently all about watching lovingly-built machines getting smashed to pieces. There’s no X Factor-style character development, no American Ninja Warrior sob stories. It’s two metal robots fighting to death in a cage, and it doesn’t get better than this match between Minotaur and Blacksmith.
The series only recently returned to our screens after a multi-year hiatus, but it’s not been off to a slow start. The TV show is famous for having entries from Mythbusters hosts Adam Savage and Grant Imahara, so it’s no surprise that things get quite messy quite quickly. But I’m still a little surprised that this match ended in flames.
Amazon Prime is a terrific deal and if you’re not already a member, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial right here. On top of free express two-day shipping on more items than you can count, Prime membership also gives you access to great Amazon services like Amazon Music and Amazon Prime Video. The latter is a Netflix alternative that lets you stream unlimited movies and TV shows from the Amazon catalog, which continues to expand each month. But just like Netflix, Amazon’s Prime Video service doesn’t have access to new titles and plenty more that the company hasn’t secured streaming rights for.
Of course unlike Netflix, Amazon also has a separate service like iTunes where you can purchase or rent tons of different movies and TV shows a la carte. And to celebrate the run up to Prime Day tomorrow, Amazon is offering some pretty great deals on digital content right now. More →
Suicide Squad is not going to be your typical superhero flick. Sure, it’ll reference Batman and Superman a lot, and maybe even briefly feature one of the two powerful DC Comics vigilantes. But Suicide Squad is about the villains in the DC Comics universe. It’s about the demented evil guys and gals who superheroes spend plenty of time trying to catch and lock behind bars. It’s about really dangerous people who can still be of great help to our planet, and even keep the good guys in check.
In other words, Suicide Squad is one of the most hotly anticipated movies of the summer, and there’s a new international trailer for the film that will hit theaters in early August. More →
You may have missed some of the previous Euro 2016 matches so far, but Sunday’s Portugal vs. France is one game you should absolutely watch. Not only is it a fantastic matchup between two top European teams, but it also happens to be the final of this year’s UEFA tournament.
Just like every other game from the 2016 Euro tournament, you will be able to watch Portugal vs. France online, starting at 9:00 PM CET (that’s 3:00 PM EDT). In this post we’ll tell you how. More →
The new Ghostbusters movie is set to premiere one week from today and it will be incredibly interesting to see how the film holds up at the box office. Somewhat surprisingly, the family friendly reboot has stirred up no shortage of controversy in recent weeks. Not only have some die-hard fans of the original criticized the upcoming film for its casting choices (read: some people aren’t on board with an all-female cast), others have lambasted the film’s trailer for being uninspiring and dreadfully unfunny.
You would think with so much craziness happening in the world these days that people would learn to chill a bit when it comes to something as unimportant as a Hollywood movie, but alas, here we are.
