Looking set to be one of the most cameo filled movies ever released, the Absolutely Fabulous movie has fans gagging with glee at the official release of the movie’s trailer which dropped 10am Wednesday, UK time.
With the principal cast of Jennifer Saunders, Joanna Lumley, Julia Sawalaha, Jane Horrocks and June Whitfield all returning to their much loved roles, series regulars including former spice girl Emma ‘baby spice’ Bunton, Lulu, Dawn French and Stella McCartney are back along with possibly the longest list of cameo appearances ever to appear in a movie. Names including Kate Moss, Joan Collins, Gwendoline Christie, Chris Colfer, Daisy Lowe, Jerry Hall, Perez Hilton, Lily Cole and Rylan Clark a listed in a myriad of around 60 confirmed cameo’s throughout the film.
The movie, set in present time, follows PR Maven Edwina (Saunders) and her long standing best friend and jaded/faded model Patsy Stone (Lumley) as they deal with the fallout and ensuing media frenzy from an ‘incident’ at a fashion launch party (i.e – Edwina accidentally pushes Kate Moss off a balcony to her death) which see’s the two flee to the French Riviera and set forth a plan to reclaim to jet setting life they once had.

The Absolutely Fabulous movie is set for release in cinemas July 1st in the UK while us Aussies have to wait until August 11th!
Ask any X-Men fan about the comic book series during the 90’s and one of the first things talked about is the kick-ass animated series that saw the ever popular mutants brought to life for the very first time.
Even though the series ended in 1997, the animated series remains a favorite for X-men fans and to this day, retains a very cool nostalgic vibe to each and every episode.
Cut to early 2016, where Canadian animator Joel Furtado drops a sneak peek look at his “love letter to Marvel”, his own take on the X-Men in animated-meets-arcade-game form via X-Men: Danger Room Protocols. An 18 episode animated series that borrows heavily from the original animated series from the 90’s, that will see various and well known members of the X-men pitted against their most dangerous foes.
Check out the very cool trailer and a look at Joe and his plans for the series in the video below:
As you can see, everyone from Cyclops to Storm, Wolverine and Psylocke are all set to feature and battle it out against Mystique, Sabretooth, White Queen and Magneto with episode one featuring Wolverine and Jean Grey and titled ‘survival’ poised to be released on Joes YouTube Channel on Jan 19th – you know, that’s if Marvel and FOX don’t put a complete stop to the project before it ever see’s the light of day.
Either way, we’re loving the look and feel of what Danger Room Protocols is offering and can’t wait for the final product!
Update: Feb 2016 – Sadly, only one episode of this awesome work made the light of day…and for about 20 minutes before Marvel stepped in and shut the project down. watch what creator Joe Furtado has to say about the situation over at his official website.
The brand new trailer for the sixth and final installment of the Paranormal Activity movie series has been released and is promising, once again, to offer movie goers a few jumps and scares while tying in and finalizing the story-line that has been played out over the past 5 movies.
With this final installment, we’re being promised that Toby will finally be revealed after eluding our eyes for so many films. It’s producer Jason Blum’s way of putting an end to the series. Speaking with bloody-disgusting.com he says “It’s coming to an end. This is it, the finale. We’re saying it before the movie opens. We’re not going to grind this horror franchise into the ground. This will keep Paranormal Activity as part of this culture and this particular time in a really fantastic way”
The Ghost Dimension, directed by Gregory Plotkin, follows a new family, the Fleeges with father Ryan (Chris J. Murray), mother Emily (Brit Shaw) and their young daughter Leila (Ivy George), who move into a house and discover a video camera and a box of tapes in the garage. When they look through the camera’s lens, they begin to see the paranormal activity happening around them — including the re-emergence of a young Kristi and Katie.
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension hits cinemas October 2015.
And you can clearly see why Thor is nabbing all the attention from the newly released trailer for the National Lampoon reboot..and it’s not just for the blonde locks or chiseled physique..
The reboot puts Ed Helms (The Hangover trilogy) in charge as the now grown-up Rusty Griswold whose parents are of course Clark (Chevy Chase) and Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo)Griswold, the couple who famously took their kids on an ill-fated trip to WalleyWorld in the 1983 original National Lampoon’s Vacation.
Vacation see’s Ed, his wife Debbie(Christina Applegate) and family, recreate the exact same trip, though stopping along the way to visit Debbie’s sister Audrey (Leslie Mann) and her incredibly endowed husband Stone (Chris Hemsworth). Check out the redband trailer below.
Let me put it out there…..last years Call of Duty Advanced Warfare….well, to me…it was shit. As a long time fan of the first person shooter series who has obsessively played every release since Call of Duty 2, I’ve enjoyed watching the game evolve with each new release…that was until exo suits with boost jumping was introduced.
To me, the new game play lost what made the series special…gone are the days going nuts in Nuketown and tinkering with snipers in Stonehaven replaced with trying to target an enemy flying across the sky while they boost from ledge to ledge. I was hoping Treyarch would ditch this move with the release of Black Ops 3…but sadly, it seems as though they’ve taken the mechanics from Advanced Warfare and ‘boosted’ it even more.
check out the new reveal trailer below:
It’s been revealed that Black Ops 3 is set 50 years in the future where soldiers use bio-augmentation and external “cyber rigs” to enhance motion capabilities. Players are able to boost jump in any direction, perform power slides and seamlessly mantle over obstacles – all while maintaining the ability to aim and fire a weapon. – yay. Treyarch have also included wall running along vertical surfaces that can then be linked with a boost jump and power slide.
Character customization is back for multi-player – which always gets a big tick for me and once again, female soldiers are playable – another tick.
The graphics are looking very slick and while i’m open about not being the biggest fan of the direction the series has taken, i will undoubtedly nab myself a pre-order for the PS4….speaking of which, those who pre-order will gain access to a yet-to-be-dated beta.
Black Ops 3 will be avaialble for PC, XBox One and PS4 users November 6th – sorry PS3 owners.
M. Night Shyamalan. The name back in 1999/2000 meant thrill and excitement for movie goers with titles such as The Sixth Sence and Unbreakable causing a stir. 2002’s Signs was an alright alien film but by the mid 2000’s, Shyamalan’s name didn’t hold the adoration it once had and a string of less than ok movies including The Village, Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender.
Things now look on the rise for Shyamalan with his TV mini series Wayward Pines (filled with an all-star cast including Matt Dillon, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis and Carla Gugino) looking like it could be the next Twin Peaks and now the first look at his latest up-coming release of the creepy “The Visit”.
Whoever said grandparents are sweet never had to deal with these two….
The Visit is set to premiere Sept 11th in America.
Amid all the hype surrounding the impending release of the new Avengers movie and the sneak peek look at Batman Vs Superman trailer, some of you may have forgotten that there’s a Fantastic Four movie on the way. So as to keep you in the loop, 20th Century Fox dropped a new trailer for the superhero movie and it gives us our first glimpse at the movies prime villain Dr.Doom.
Just like the 2005 Fantastic Four movie with Jessica Alba and Chris Pratt, Dr. Doom is the main protagonist here, but this time round, judging by the trailer, this movie could be a bit more memorable than it’s original.
Also newly released is trailer number two for Jurassic World.
This trailer is one dinosaur action packed 2 minutes and once again shows Chris Pratt doing his best Crocodile Dundee impersonation but replacing the buffalo with hungry dinosaurs.
Fantastic Four releases in Australia on August 6th
The first look at Hannibal’s third season is ready for devouring and judging by the video, it looks like we’re in for a mighty meal.
The trailer for the cult-favorite, blood soaked thriller shows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) alive and well after his encounter with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) obsessivly on the hunt tracking down the killer with a penchant for flesh who is now on the run.
Gillian Anderson is back (of course, but this time in a more permanent role) as Bedelia Du Maurier and a new face in the form of Tao Okamoto as Chio who, as Fuller states, plays a twist on the Lady Murasaki character from the Hannibal novels.
Check out the trailer below:
Showrunner Bryan Fuller announced that season three will pull heavily from Thomas Harris’ novels Red Dragon and Hannibal Rising, mashing up elements from both novels and revealing a very different origin story for Hannibal.
While I haven’t been the biggest champion of HBO’s gay drama Looking (see posts here and here) the season one finale seemed to up the ante and bring the drama that I and quite a few viewers were looking for. Now, HBO has released the full length trailer for the show’s second season, and by the looks of it, we could be in for more of what was given to us in that final episode of season one.
Jonathan Groff, Frankie J Alvarez and Murray Bartlett are all back along with Russell Tovey (Kevin), Raul Castillo (Richie) and Lauren Weedman (Doris) all bumped to series regulars for the second season.
“All of them have been in flux since the end of the last season, and they’ve all been doing their own thing a little bit,” explains executive producer Andrew Haigh to Entertainment Weekly. “This first episode is them being determined to spend more time together and go away to Russian River, which is, like, two hours outside San Francisco. It’s this really beautiful, tranquil place along the redwoods.” But there’s no guarantee of smooth sailing. According to Haigh, “they get outdoors. They go canoeing. Things happen.” We’re guessing they run into at least one or two bears.
Picking up shortly after where season one ended, Patrick (Groff) is dealing with his breakup with Richie (Castillo) and a secret romance with his attached boss Kevin, Dom (Bartlett) is having issues keeping work and romance seperate as he embarks on a relationship with his business partner Lynn (Scott Bakula) while Augustin, who pretty much suffered a personal and artistic meltdown might have found new purpose in the form of Eddie (Mean Girls’ Daniel Franzese)
Here’s hoping Looking has finally found it’s feet and continues on the more interesting path it reached by the end of season one.
