A Thief, Two Thugs, An Assassin And A Maniac Assemble In Guardians Of The Galaxy TV Spot

5 June 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel will go further into space than ever before this summer with Guardians Of The Galaxy. Fittingly, the film is also the studio’s riskiest undertaking yet, featuring a talking raccoon, a tree-like being and a blue space pirate, to name just a few of the film’s crazy characters. Luckily, it appears that director James Gunn has struck the perfect balance between goofy humor and awesome action, so Guardians Of The Galaxy seems primed to take off with both critics and audiences when it arrives in August.

A new TV spot for the film has hit the web, offering a few glimpses at villain Korath (Djimon Hounsou) and another character who may or may not be the long-anticipated archvillain Thanos (voiced by Josh Brolin). There’s also shots of an awesome action sequence featuring Groot (voiced by Vin Diesel) and Rocket Raccoon (voiced by Bradley Cooper), and a voice-over »

Epic New TV Spot for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Released

5 June 2014 10:13 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Our world is facing an unstoppable threat…send in the Guardians!”

That’s the line from Nova Prime Rael (Glenn Close) in this epic new TV spot for James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a preview featuring plenty of great never before seen footage from what many have dubbed Marvel’s riskiest movie yet as they take us into outer space with this quirky team of heroes.

That team consists of Star-Lord (Chris Pratt), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), Rocket Raccoon (Bradley Cooper), and Groot (Vin Diesel).

The shot of Star-Lord above is likely one of the final scenes in the movie, though who that hand belongs to (and who exactly he’s speaking to) remains to be seen. The answer to the latter could be Josh Brolin’s Thanos, but for now, we’re just going to have to wait and see! What do you guys think? »

New The Strain Trailer Marks the End of Our World

28 May 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

FX has released a new trailer for The Strain, and it's the first one that isn't a creepy teaser.  Created and executive produced by Guillermo del Toro, the story revolves around a team of scientists who wage war against an ancient strain of virus that confers vampirism, along with those it infects.  Del Toro co-wrote and directed the pilot and oversaw the writing of the scripts for the first season, but Lost co-showrunner Carlton Cuse acts as the day-to-day showrunner of the series.  This is the first trailer to provide some hints about the plot, but, like the other trailers thus far, shows that TV might have another great horror series on its hands. Hit the jump to check out The Strain trailer.  The series stars Corey Stoll, Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel GomezThe Strain »

Blu-ray Review: Fan Service ‘Veronica Mars’ Returns Home

14 May 2014 8:05 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – A TV movie for the silver screen, “Veronica Mars” is a historical film that was Kickstarted into existence by the will of 91,585 backers. Now, it stands like a crossroads in the intersection between TV and film, showing that what may work in TV doesn’t necessarily make for a great film.

In a way that gives the show its hip geeky edge, the dialogue of “Veronica Mars” is constructed around sporadic mad-libs, which includes name-drops to the Barenaked Ladies, “Sharknado”, Clint Eastwood, and the term “asshat”. In an admirable feat, the portion in which characters spout these phrases is fitting - while the “Veronica Mars” may not be all that funny, it doesn’t come as desperate for relevancy. Instead, it positions itself well-within a realistic pop culture stratosphere where movies, music, and celebrities are intertwined.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

With questionable tact, “Veronica Mars” uses winks as a form of self-defense »

The ways we communicated with each other and told our stories was vastly different." -- Jane Rosenthal, introducing two interactive films, "Possibilia" and "The Gleam" 2. "You have to join the dots between funding the work, supporting the work, distributing the work, exhibiting the. »

Film Review: ‘Veronica Mars’ Wishes it Was Still on TV

14 March 2014 8:06 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – A TV movie for the silver screen, “Veronica Mars” is a historical film that was Kickstarted into existence by the will of 91,585 backers. Now, it stands like a crossroads in the intersection between TV and film, showing that what may work in TV doesn’t necessarily make for a great film.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Our world is introduced/re-introduced to the universe of “Veronica Mars” with a slideshow and voiceover, which could be the opening credits for the original TV show for all I know. After the catchup we find our title hero (played with lightness by Kristen Bell) interviewing for a job at a law firm, where her potential boss Gayle Buckley (Jamie Lee Curtis) helps fill in more background with obvious exposition. We learn not long after that Veronica has a boyfriend (Chris Lowell) as well, who has become a good-humored support despite her history that everyone seems to know about. »

'Downton Abbey' Season 4: Mrs. Patmore knows her place, but Lesley Nicol defies the rules

4 January 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

About nine years ago, at the age of 52, British actress Lesley Nicol of "Downton Abbey" met a spiritual practitioner a few years older than her, named Da'aboth. About seven years ago they married -- a first marriage for them both.

"What I'm saying is, don't listen to anyone," Nicol tells Zap2it over tea and British pub food at the Ye Olde King's Head in Santa Monica, Calif. "And because, I'm proving here and now that the rules that say, 'Oh, you're over 45, there are no parts for you.' Well, actually, I've just got the best part I've ever had, and yes, I did just fall in love.

"We got married, and it's been amazing."

Nicol plays Mrs. Beryl Patmore, the cook at the Edwardian manor house that is the setting for the period drama, which returns for its fourth season Sunday (Jan. 5) as part of PBS' "Masterpiece."
