Kelly Frye To Play Plastique On The Flash

59 minutes ago

Last week we heard that The Flash would be adding Firestorm villain Plastique to its roster, and now we know which actress will play her. According to E! News, NCIS: Los Angeles and The Mentalist alum Kelly Frye will play the former soldier turned meta-human and debut in the show’s fifth episode. Her character is described as follows:

“A bomb disposal expert in Iraq who, following exposure to the energy released by the S.T.A.R. Labs meltdown, Bette San Souci now has the ability to turn any object she touches into an explosive device. On the run from the shadow forces in the U.S. government trying to turn her into a human weapon, she finds an ally in fellow meta-human The Flash.”

It sounds like Plastique won’t be a villain in the series, despite being a regular Firestorm adversary and member of the Suicide Squad. »

Beatport To Host A Stage At Electric Zoo

1 hour ago

Beatport, the gold standard in the latest and greatest in dance music and music charts, will for the first time host a stage at the 6th annual Electric Zoo festival.

New York City’s premier electronic music festival, taking place over Labor Day weekend, August 29th – 31st, is known for curating an amazing environment in which to experience its top-tier, multi-genre, dance-til-you-drop line up. Choosing Beatport to spearhead the talent acquisition and schedule of three days of the Riverside stage is an excellent idea and should work out well.

Mike Bindra and Laura De Palma – the creators of Made Event and Electric Zoo – are absolutely ecstatic over their partnership with industry expert Beatport:

“Beatport is the most recognized brand in dance music, so to have them be a part of this year’s Electric Zoo Festival is a very special feeling. Working with them has made it clear we share »

Pretty Little Liars Review: “Scream For Me” (Season 5, Episode 8)

1 hour ago

Aria (Lucy Hale) is apparently channeling all her guilt about Shana and directing it at Hanna (Ashley Benson) on this episode of Pretty Little Liars. It was only a matter of time before she found something to focus on besides her own grief, and Hanna’s current penchant for alcohol makes her an easy target. What it also does, is make it that much easier for A to get what she wants.

Obviously the text message from A was about ‘divide and conquer,’ a method that isn’t usually successful when it comes to the Liars, but Aria is playing right into his/her hand. Not only does she condemn Hanna for coping with the recent events in her chosen manner, but she doesn’t even hesitate before going off on her about the Zack confession. Hanna could have easily kept it to herself, and after listening to Aria’s self-serving rant, »

Noah Blu-Ray Review

2 hours ago

With Darren Aronofsky at the helm, Noah was always going to be a Biblically ambitious sight to behold, and a vividly strange one at that. Creative liberties are one thing, but did anyone expect the man behind Requiem For A Dream and The Fountain to adhere strictly to the Bible’s cut and dry storytelling? Aronofsky’s retelling of “Noah’s Ark” blends elements of Lord Of The Rings with God’s bleaker trials and tribulations, getting a wee bit darker than I remember Noah’s adventure, but stunning camerawork and artistic attention make use of massive color palates much like Andy Warhol might – but a Catholic school special, this is not. Either I zoned out when my Catholicism teacher detailed how gargantuan rock monsters helped Noah fight off an invading army of dissidents, or Aronofsky decided that religion needed a jolt of Hollywood magic.

Kevin Smith’s Tusk And Face Of An Angel Among New Tiff Selections

3 hours ago

Kevin Smith’s walrus-themed horror-comedy Tusk, Michael Winterbottom’s Amanda Knox-inspired thriller Face of an Angel and several big titles from last spring’s Cannes Film Festival are among a new batch of films announced to screen at the Toronto International Film Festival. Tiff released its list of films from the Midnight Madness, Tiff Docs, Vanguard and Master programs on Tuesday, which include several world and North American premieres.

Midnight Madness, a popular place for buzzworthy genre films, will screen Smith’s Tusk, which stars Justin Long as a podcaster who gets more than he bargained for when he interviews a creepy seafarer (Michael Parks). Other notable titles include Big Game, a survivalist thriller from Rare Exports director Jalmari Helander with Samuel L. Jackson as the president of the United States fending for his life after Air Force One crashes in the forest. Also, Sundance favorite The Guest, from You’re Next director Adam Wingard, »

Tyrant Review: “What The World Needs Now” (Season 1, Episode 6)

4 hours ago

Tyrant may have  looked like it was beginning to lose some of its steam in the previous episode, but “What The World Needs Now” may as well have been titled, “What The Show Needs Now.” The writers hit it out of the park with a surprise ending that will change everything for the main characters, and possibly incite even more chaos than what Abbudin experienced under its former leadership. All viewers can do now is sit back and wait to see how things work themselves out.

We’ve watched the transition that Jamal (Ashraf Barhom) has undergone as he is guided by his younger brother as opposed to being under the calculating influence of his uncle, but the end of this episode leaves that in question. The brash man we met in the pilot seemed to have been finding a middle ground between his desire to come across as powerful »

NBC’s Constantine Gets A Gory, Spirited New Trailer

5 hours ago

Though Fox’s Gotham may be my most anticipated show of the 2014-15 fall season, I’ll also be keeping a close eye on another comic-influenced series – NBC’s Constantine, which adapts Alan Moore’s beloved graphic novel Hellblazer. With Matt Ryan in the lead role and a refreshingly dark and Gothic feel, this series may just manage to do justice to its source material (provided it isn’t axed as quickly as most of NBC’s other ambitious shows).

A new trailer for Constantine debuted at Comic-Con and has now made its way online, reiterating mostly stuff we already knew about this series but doing so in a stylish and entertaining manner. As the series opens, we see that John Constantine (Ryan), an exorcist and meddler in the dark arts, has been condemned for failing in his efforts to save a little girl from the powerful demon Astaroth.

Jason Bateman And Billy Crudup Fight Over Olivia Wilde In The Longest Week Trailer

5 hours ago

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a trailer so brutally knee-cap the movie it’s marketing as quickly as the first preview for rom-com The Longest Week, which hit the web today, just has. On paper, the premise sounds fun – Jason Bateman and Billy Crudup play affluent New Yorkers who compete for the affections of a beautiful woman (Olivia Wilde). But mid-way through the trailer, the luminescent Jenny Slate comes in, presumably playing the would-be publisher of Bateman’s character’s inchoate novel, to deliver this cringeworthy piece of cynicism: “How I am supposed to care about a group of overprivileged, affluent types who go galavanting around without any sort of a moral compass?”

However, instead of answering Slate’s extremely fair question, which is one this potential viewer now also has on his mind, The Longest Week‘s trailer just goes back to its cutesy/pretentious indie »

Check Out New Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb Images

6 hours ago

Five years after Battle of the Smithsonian (and eight years after the first Night at the Museum), Ben Stiller will be stepping back into the role of night security guard Larry Daley this December for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb, the third and final installment in the series. Today, we’ve got the first images for the threequel, which Fox has released ahead of the film’s first trailer debut later this week.

As the images show, Larry is rejoined in this third installment by living museum exhibits Sacajawea (Mizuo Peck), Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams), Ahkmenrah (Rami Malek) and Attila the Hun (Patrick Gallagher), among others (expect big roles for Crystal the monkey, Owen Wilson’s Jedediah and Steve Coogan’s Octavius, as per usual). Additionally, Larry’s now-teenaged son Nick (Skyler Gisondo, replacing Jake Cherry) gets wrapped up in the action.

Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Adds Three Different Collector’s Sets

9 hours ago

Another fall season is approaching and, unsurprisingly, three new Call of Duty collector’s sets have been announced to remind us of just that. However, instead of being a part of the Ghosts promotion package, these new bundles are for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, the series’ futuristic, Kevin Spacy-infused tale.

This trio of pricey sets – which includes the Atlas Pro Edition, the Atlas Limited Edition and the Atlas Digital Pro Edition — offer unique and more expensive ways for fans to jump into the first truly next-gen Call of Duty experience. Ranging from $79.99 to $119.99 Us dollars, their contents are as follows:

Inspired by the Atlas Corporation, the leading Private Military Corporation (Pmc) in 2054 and lead by the influential Jonathan Irons, the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Atlas Limited Edition features an extensive array of both digital and physical content, including a bonus multiplayer map Atlas Gorge, a collectible SteelBook™, the »

New Trailer For Assassin’s Creed Unity Introduces Elise, ‘The Fiery Templar’

10 hours ago

In the wake of E3 2014, one of the more controversial stories to come out of the convention was the news that Assassin’s Creed Unity would not feature playable female characters. Although this will not be remedied, despite the outcry from the public and press, Ubisoft did release a new trailer for the title today that introduces an important new female character.

In the trailer, protagonist Arno races through the streets and across the rooftops of Paris in order to save Elise before she is beheaded. It is only when Arno storms the tower where she is being held does he notice the distinct symbol of the Templars in the necklace she is wearing. The two will have to work together, though, in order to escape the mob of soldiers that have quickly converged on their location.

A key, albeit non-playable, character, Elise is a young noblewoman looking to secure »

Learn About Combat With EA’s Latest Dragon Age: Inquisition Video

10 hours ago

Today, EA debuted a new, combat-focused trailer for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Its goal: To show off and thoroughly explain just how tactical, thought-provoking and challenging the upcoming RPG’s battles will be.

Like its predecessors, Dragon Age: Inquisition will be a tough game. Battles against hordes of regular foes won’t be easy, and that’s even more true of battles against gigantic dragons and the like. Then again, that shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who are familiar with this series and the old-school RPGs that inspired its creation. If you aren’t smart in the way that you approach each conflict scenario, then it’s likely that you’ll be facing game over screens with regularity.

Unlike the lengthy walkthrough videos that came before it, this most recent trailer is all about combat and nothing more. A lot of its content is also old news, to be honest, »

Unlock The Mystery In Second Trailer For The Maze Runner

10 hours ago

Teenagers in dystopian worlds have become pretty standard fare in both books and films. This has been true ever since Lord of the Flies examined the breakdown of society via schoolboys trapped alone on an island, and carries through to the present day in the form of The Hunger Games franchise, among others. Now we have yet another similar scenario with director Wes Ball’s The Maze Runner, based on the novel by James Dashner.

The central figure of The Maze Runner is Thomas (Dylan O’Brien), who awakes to find himself in the Glade with no apparent memory of how he got there. The community is full of teenage boys and located at the center of a massive maze which “runners” periodically attempt to solve. Thomas must piece together memories of his past involving an organization called W.C.K.D. in order to solve the maze and liberate the community. »

Power Is Everything In First Campaign Trailer For Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

12 hours ago

Activision has unveiled the first story-centric trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which effectively proves that Atlas — the private military corporation at the center of the game’s storyline — is a lean, mean and autonomous killing machine.

Narrated in a foreboding manner by Troy Baker — who lends his vocal chords to the game’s morally ambitious protagonist, Private Mitchell — the footage documents the world’s first global terrorist attack; one which instigates the rise of private military corporations as governments become desperate for a response team.

Set in the year 2054, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will also introduce a slew of new features to the franchise, including exoskeletons, hoverbikes and bleeding-edge military technology. Understandably, many have wondered how Sledgehammer plan to incorporate this new tech into the game’s online component; either way, we’ll have our answers when the studio reveals the multiplayer portion of Advanced Warfare on August 8th. »

J.R. Ramirez To Play Wildcat On Arrow

12 hours ago

Over the weekend, we heard that DC Comics character Ted Grant a.k.a. Wildcat would be making his way to The CW’s Arrow, but we didn’t have any casting or plot information to go along with the news. Now, Deadline has solved that little dilemma for us, as they’re reporting that Power and House of Payne alum J.R. Ramirez will play the boxer-turned-vigilante in a recurring role.

Wildcat fans will immediately notice that Ramirez is a bit young for the part, so it seems that they’re going in a more contemporary direction with the character on the series. In the comics, Wildcat was a founding member of the Justice Society of America (a precursor to the Justice League), who trained several modern day heroes including Black Canary and Batman and is usually shown as middle-aged or elderly.

Porter Robinson Releases Flicker

13 hours ago

Just two weeks remain until the official release of Porter Robinson‘s highly anticipated debut album, Worlds. To drum up some excitement, the 22-year old American producer and DJ has released the final single off his project – Flicker.

Previewed in his Essential Mix earlier this month, Flicker represents a change of pace (or multiple paces, at that) for Robinson – straying away from its more mellow, melodic Worlds‘ predecessors (Sad Machine, Lionhearted), while still maintaining Robinson’s dubby roots and signature fluidity in mixing genres.

It’s clear that Robinson is stretching his legs on his debut album, and putting what has been a lengthy road to release to good use. If the triumverate of singles released are any indication, we’re all in for a treat on August 12.

Check out Flicker below, and let us know what you think.

Get On Up Review

13 hours ago

Chadwick Boseman does not look likes James Brown. He did not look like Jackie Robinson either before playing #42 in last year’s hit about the barrier-shattering athlete, but Boseman’s magnetism and charm made up for the actor’s leanness and lack of cosmetic similarity. Now, the young actor has mastered another legendary man of the 20th century, the groovy funkster whose howl on “I Got You (I Feel Good)” is still one of the most exhilarating moments in popular music.

As James Brown in Get On Up, Boseman wears a heavy jaw of make-up on his face, which could have been more distracting had the actor not nailed the slurred speech, the electric rasp, and the dazzling dancing feet of the pop music icon. It’s an performance that is as impressive as Jamie Foxx’s show-stopping turn as Ray Charles ten years ago. (Like Foxx, though, Boseman does »

The Villains Take Over In The Latest Trailer For Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes

14 hours ago

Everyone loves a good villain and Disney is capitalizing on that by making sure that Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes has no shortage of them. The company has revealed that three major Marvel Comics Universe baddies will be making their way to the popular sandbox franchise.

If you are a fan of the various comic book adaptations that have hit cinemas over the past few years, you are most likely already well aware of who Loki and The Green Goblin are. The trickster brother of Norse god Thor, Loki was the main villain in The Avengers, while Norman Osbourne’s nightmarish alter-ego showed up in 2002′s Spider-Man.

Less familiar than those two, though, is Ronan the Accuser, who is the main villain in the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy. A member of the Kree alien race, Ronan has gone toe-to-toe with some of the giants of the Marvel Universe, including »

Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair Will Come To Theatres In 2015

14 hours ago

Love him, hate him, or feel massively indifferent towards him, you must admit that Quentin Tarantino often gives his fans exactly what they want. Promising to begin shooting The Hateful Eight early in 2015 – despite that whole “I’m not going to make The Hateful Eight” debacle earlier – Tarantino has also taken steps, more or less, to release Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair in theaters next year.

The announcement came during Dynamite Entertainment’s panel at Comic-Con where Tarantino was on hand to discuss his Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic. When the subject of Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair came up, Tarantino launched into a Tarantino-esque explanation of what that was, ending with this important pronouncement:

The Weinstein Company and myself were talking about actually coming out with it sometime, not before the year is out, but within the next year with limited theatrical engagement as well. »

90s-Inspired Romp Shadow Warrior Gets Release Date, Console-Exclusive Content

18 hours ago

Bandai Namco announced today that the 90s-inspired, ultra-violent Shadow Warrior will rear its head on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 26th.

In tandem with the announcement, the publisher also revealed that Flying Wild Hogs’ bombastic reboot of the 3D Realms classic will include a host of features exclusive to the console version. First up, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners can look forward to an all-new arena mode in the rerelease, along with a hoard of weaponry from Devolver Digital’s other titles — including the Katanas from both Hotline Miami and the original Shadow Warrior.

In a statement, the company’s CFO, Fork Parker, outlined the passion behind the project, which is on its way to next-gen systems courtesy of support from fans of the 1997 original.

“Our fans have been very vocal about bringing Shadow Warrior to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One so we’re absolutely thrilled to be working with »
