Terminator: Genisys Spoilers – 8 Plot Points Revealed

29 minutes ago

Paramount Pictures

When Terminator: Genisys was first announced, fans rightly had a lot of questions. And not all of them were about unorthodox styles of spelling. The franchise which had begun so strong had tapered off towards the end, with the most recent fourth instalment in the series being remembered more for Christian Bale acting like a douche on set than, really, anything about the film itself. Sam Worthingon was in it, right? What happened to that guy?

There’s been speculation about whether a new Terminator film is even necessary, if and how Arnold Schwarzenegger could be brought back into the fold, and what the heck a new Terminator film would even be about. This week saw a front-page exclusive in industry magazine Entertainment Weekly which answers…some of those questions, at least. And answers them in the sort of vague way these things usually do.

The answers it did give, »

The Undertaker In WWE Return To Help Developmental Talent

47 minutes ago

wwe.com

The Undertaker has returned to the WWE in a role that helps the development of younger talents. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that the forty-nine year old spent last week in Orlando to help with developmental talent. It has always been the long term plan that he’d become more involved in that part of the business.

It suits Undertaker because his wife Michelle McCool has family in Florida. She’s also been able to help with the development of the female talent. This is something that Triple H has really pushed for, as he’s keen to get top tier superstars into mentoring roles with the younger talent. Can you imagine what a pep talk from someone like The Undertaker would do for a young wrestler’s career?

This is clearly a great boost for the WWE youth system, although it raises questions if this means »

Watch: New Lexus Nx Inspire Music Video For “Can’t Wait To”

1 hour ago

The new Lexus Nx has made a strong mark for the brand in the mid-size SUV market. Other than some strong engineering in place, the car boasts of an edgy design model perfect for those car enthusiasts.

The Nx is an amalgamation of comfort with luxury and when these two attributes are married together one needs to pay tribute to it in a special way. To do this Lexus has involved artists from diverse fields of fashion, design and music to demonstrate the innovation and striking design of the new Lexus Nx in a digital art exhibit called Nx-Perspectives.

For Nx-Illuminated, Lunice and creative collective LuckyMe joined forces and produced a powerful music video “Can’t Wait To”. The video is stunning and inspired by the bold lighting design of the Nx.

It’s a treat to watch and the video truly represents and epitomizes what the car is all about: Style, »

10 Terrible 2014 Horror Movies To Avoid This Halloween

1 hour ago

Warner Bros. Pictures

All Hallows’ Eve is looming, which means there’s no better time of the year to catch up with the year’s array of horror offerings. That said, the genre has a notoriously low quotient of movies that are actually worth watching, meaning that horror fans have to judiciously separate out the classics from the garbage.

In 2014, multiplex horror has been about as routinely awful as it has for decades, with studios leaning on the same, tired tropes over and over again to distressing box office success (but a critical pummeling, of course). With VOD blasting off over the last year in particular, there are more avenues than ever to catch new movies, and though this in theory provides audiences with even more choice, it also widens the entry-point for films that would usually just end up straight-to-video or never even made in the first place.

10 Things You Need To Know About The Original Ecw Invasion

1 hour ago

wwe.com

Ecw invading WWE wasn’t exclusive to 2001. Paul Heyman brought his band of hardcore merry men to the WWE first in 1997 for a series of epic Raw shows. This article will run down everything you need to know about that original Invasion.

The original Ecw had a die-hard fan base that couldn’t, and perhaps will never be, matched as far as undying loyalty goes. Vince McMahon saw this and revived the promotion in 2006 after it went out of business five years earlier. He thought it would translate into big business. However, to say that it was a colossal failure would be an understatement. A corporate spin on a grass roots, anti-establishment wrestling promotion was a glaring reminder to fans that this wasn’t the land of hardcore that they used to know. However, in the mid-90’s, the professional wrestling landscape was a much different place.

10 Reasons You Need To Be Excited For Dean Ambrose Vs Bray Wyatt

1 hour ago

wwe

Dean Ambrose has been one of the most entertaining aspects of WWE TV for the past two years now. Whether it’s as part of The Shield, or as The Lunatic Fringe of the WWE Universe, Ambrose has a captivating and magnetic personality unlike anything seen in wrestling for a long, long time.

Bray Wyatt has been on the edge of really breaking out for a while. His supernatural cult-leader gimmick has proved enduringly popular, but despite feuds with main-eventers like Daniel Bryan, Chris Jericho and John Cena, he still hasn’t fully lived up to the potential that everyone can see he has.

The two men have danced around each other for a while now, and as part of their respective factions they’ve collided a few times already this year. Now, both men are set to strike out on their own and really make a name for themselves, »

10 Craziest Spots From WWE Hell In A Cell 2014

1 hour ago

wwe.com

Regardless of what you thought of Sunday’s WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on the whole, you have to admit that it was a strong night for in-ring action. Questionable finishes aside, both Hell in a Cell matches delivered a big way. Although we’ve seen John Cena and Randy Orton clash countless times before, their pleasantly surprising match exceeded expectations and saw Cena walk away as the new No. 1 contender to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. In the main event, former Shield cohorts Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins settled their score inside the confines of a Hell in a Cell. Following interference from a returning Bray Wyatt, Rollins capitalized and pinned the fallen Ambrose for the victory.

That said, you can’t hold a Hell in a Cell pay-per-view without an obscene amount of brutality. Granted, matches that take place inside Satan’s Structure these days »

Kevin Steen’s WWE Name Will Be Kevin Owens

3 hours ago

Wikipedia

Kevin Steen was one of the big international free agents that WWE signed this summer. They brought in Japanese superstars Kenta and named him Hideo Itami in Nxt. Ireland’s Prince Devitt is named Finn Balor, although he has yet to appear on Nxt (though it is coming soon). What about Canada’s Kevin Steen? He hasn’t appeared on WWE Nxt yet, however he’s apparently he’s got a new WWE name: Kevin Owens.

The reported new name comes from PWInsider, who noted that WWE applied to trademark “Kevin Owens” as a character name for a professional wrestler on October 24th. They also noted that it’s for Steen.

What’s interesting about the name is that Steen has said that Owen Hart was one of his favourite wrestlers and he also named his son Owen. He has a son and daughter with his wife. It’s »

Latest WWE Network Subscriber Numbers Are Disappointingly Low

4 hours ago

wwe.com

WWE has announced that WWE Network subscribers amount to 731,000 people, according to their release which you can view here. That’s a rise of just 3,000 domestically and 28,000 internationally.

Let’s be frank here, those numbers are disastrous for the WWE. Straight away they responded by announcing major changes, including giving the entire month of November free to new subscribers. That’s right, you’ll get to see Survivor Series free if you give the WWE Network a chance. Even more significant is that you can now subscribe for $9.99 a month and cancel at any time. Basically, WWE are getting desperate. They wanted to hit a million subscribers by the end of the year. They had 700,000 subscribers at the end of July and have added barely anything in the grand scheme of things. Indeed, they’re barely up from the initial 667,287 subscribers that they announced just after WrestleMania 30. Clearly »

15 Best Video Game Teaser Trailers Of All Time

4 hours ago

Konami

Do you like the steam-powered, engine-whistle-screaming hype train? Most of the time it’s got some mighty fine seats when you first come aboard – and they’ll even ensure you remain comfortable for the duration too – but come time for release-day departure, it’s a cold cast-off into the black nether as it speeds on without you.

‘Pre-order culture’ has become a huge part of the industry over the last few years, with what started with store-specific orders netting you something fairly pointless like an extra shotgun or player skin now entire chapters, characters or in Destiny’s case the entire story being queued up for release long after the initial drop-date.

What kickstarts this wondrous process is the trailers – those first glimpses into another world, taste of tonality, gameplay or story element that’s custom-edited to resonate with as many as people as possible. Regardless of how the final product ends up, »

10 Most Terrifying Modern Horror Classics [Video]

5 hours ago

Halloween! Costumes, pumpkins, junk food, parties and Horror!

We all love a good bit of horror, and Halloween is the time of year to get stuck in. It’s the one day of the year where it’d be rude not to lock yourself away, steal the bowl of candy you bought for trick or treaters, maybe grab a beer or two, turn the lights off and scare yourself into oblivion with a stack of films.

There are of course the classics: Everything from A Nightmare On Elm Street to The Wicker Man. This, for many of us, is what it’s all about – revisiting the films that scared us senseless as kids. But for some people, the same old scares just won’t cut it – they want something fresh.

Luckily for those people, we’ve had a mountain of awesome horror in recent years, some of which will definitely »

10 Predictions For The Future Of Sting In WWE

5 hours ago

WWE.Com

Sting is unquestionably the biggest star to never work for Vince McMahon. Throughout the late eighties and early nineties, he helped carry WCW through their fierce rivalry with WWF, and his legendary matches with the likes of Cactus Jack, Big Van Vader and “Hollywood” Hulk Hogan kept fans glued to WCW television. Throughout the Monday Night War he was one of the most captivating parts of Monday Nitro, no matter what they asked of him he performed to his maximum.

He’s also a master of reinvention. Not only did he adapt better than most to changing tastes, by morphing from the clean-cut surfer to the sullen bat-wielding vigilante, but he adapted to the new landscape of wrestling in the early 2000s by shunning WWF and instead joining the fledgling Total Nonstop Action promotion. He provided Tna with much-needed credibility.

10 Ways Avengers: Age Of Ultron Could Link To Future Films

Marvel Studios

This week, Marvel Studios hosted a press event from the famous El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles. Only a select few were invited to attend, as the likes of Kevin Feige, Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans and the newly-cast star Chadwick Boseman all made appearances on stage. The event was covered via a live blog event at Marvel.com and a number of huge announcements were made regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

No less than nine new films were announced for the next four and a half years leading us in to 2019. Captain America: Civil War and Doctor Strange (2016), Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Thor: Ragnarok and Black Panther (2017), Avengers: Infinity War Part 1, Captain Marvel and Inhumans (2018) and Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (2019) have all been made official. In addition to next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, this means we now have »

Update On WWE’s WrestleMania 31 Main Event Plans

6 hours ago

wwe.com

WWE are determined to stick with a rigid plan for WrestleMania 31’s main event, according to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter. The plan is for John Cena to be defeated by Brock Lesnar in the WWE Title Match at the Royal Rumble, and Roman Reigns will then defeat Brock for the title at WrestleMania 31. This will make Reigns the new star of the company and Cena will become the resident legend. Even though Reigns is currently out injured, WWE are still pushing him hard, as witnessed by his video interview on Raw and new nicknames ‘The Juggernaut’ and ‘The Big Dog.’

What won’t be happening is a scenario like the 2014 Mania season. WWE switched plans from Batista to Daniel Bryan, based on how popular the underdog star was becoming. Whatever happens with Dean Ambrose’s growing popularity, we aren’t going to see a situation similar to Bryan. »

20 Problems Only People Who Work In A Department Store Will Understand

6 hours ago

shutterstock.com

Many of us will have been employed by a department store in some capacity, whether behind a till, prowling the shop floor, or working in the stockroom. Those fortunate enough to have landed such positions will know the daily little struggles that one has to overcome en route to payday. The unintentional comedy these problems provide makes it all worthwhile eventually, but it can be hard to look at them in a light-hearted way at the end of a particularly hectic shift.

The world of retail is fully of hidden problems known only to those who work there. A till isn’t some sort of magical money machine – you actually have to learn which buttons to press at the right time. The shop floor might be clearly signposted and have optimal lighting, but the rabbit warren of internal, behind-the-scenes corridors is more of a labyrinth than a workspace. »

10 Players Who Thought They Were Bigger Than Newcastle United

6 hours ago

Owen Humphreys/Pa Archive

There’s an old maxim that Newcastle fans don’t want anything apart from as much effort as players are able to give. It’s not wholly true: as football is about a lot more than that, but giving your heart, and your sweat and your tears goes a long way to winging you over with the Geordie faithful as much as being as gifted as Peter Beardsley can.

But it has been clear over the Premier League years at least that some players haven’t quite given as much as they could for the cause. They’ve had their eyes on bigger prizes, grander stages and saw the club as little more than a stepping stone, or a thorn to be endured before they got to the rose.

These people have, rightly, taken on pantomime villain status in the eyes of Newcastle fans, and looking back, »

10 Movies So Good You Overlook Major Flaws

6 hours ago

Lucasfilm

We all love movies that deep down we know aren’t perfect. And not in a vague, there’s-no-such-thing-as-a-perfect-movie way either. We’re talking about those films that despite you being more than aware of their faults you can’t help but find them the peak of cinematic endeavours.

But then there’s the movies that actually are at, or very close to this peak that manage to be so brilliantly constructed that whatever problems they have don’t even matter. The internet went crazy when The Big Bang Theory pointed out that Indiana Jones is superfluous to the outcome of Raiders Of The Lost Ark, the Nazis doomed to a face-melting fate even if he stays at Marshall College. It seems like a damning piece of evidence against Spielberg’s action throwback, but instead goes to highlight just how good the movie is in the first place; the »

Interview With Michael Kingston: Creator Of Headlocked

6 hours ago

Michael Kingston is a lifelong comic book and wrestling fan. In the past, various writers have attempted to create comics that mixed the two genres, but failed in spectacular fashion. In Headlocked: The Last Territory, though, Kingston creates a realistic hero in Mike Hartman who we follow on a journey in the unforgiving business. Filled with emotion and a clear passion from its writer, Headlocked is the most realistic portrayal of wrestling in the graphic novel form to date.

For his upcoming sequel Headlocked: The Last Territory Vol. 2, we follow the continuation of Hartman’s story. Kingston has taken to Kickstarter once more to raise the funds necessary to produce the book. Teaming up with him again is wrestling legend Jerry Lawler who will be providing the cover artwork. Also joining on the project in the role of guest creators are Booker T, Rob Van Dam, A.J. Styles, John Morrison, »

10 Worst PPV Endings In WWE History

6 hours ago

wwe.com

Last Sunday’s Hell in a Cell PPV saw a particularly bizarre ending which has already divided fan opinion. The main event between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose concluded with the appearance of a lantern in the middle of the ring, from which a ghostly figure emerged. This was followed by an interference from Bray Wyatt – perhaps marking another main event push for the cult leader – which allowed Rollins to grab the cheap win. Some saw the ghostly special effects as a compelling part of wrestling’s usual spectacle and outlandishness, while others were unable to look beyond the fairly unconvincing holographic image and take it seriously.

Many have declared it the poorest Pay Per View ending in years, although when compared with other (more universally panned) main events, it doesn’t quite stand up alongside some of the very worst in WWE history. Usually the result of »

Inhumans Movie: 5 Things You Need To Know

7 hours ago

Marvel Studios

Amongst the exciting announcements Marvel made during their internet-breaking even last night – where they unveiled pretty much every film they’ve got coming up until you’re the sort of age where caring about Doctor Strange so much is getting a little odd – was one that was more of a wild card. The Inhumans have popped up as supporting characters in a bunch of Marvel comics over the years, have only sporadically headlined their own title, and are generally really frickin’ weird. Remind you of anybody?

Basically the Inhumans could be the next Guardians Of The Galaxy – an obscure comic book team that doesn’t have much mainstream recognition, which could turn out to be its greatest asset. Not that the tones are in any way similar (rather than witty space losers, it’s angsty space mutants), but that’s good. You need some variation. This could be »
