After spinning its wheels for a couple of episodes, Supergirl gets right back on track with this anger-themed instalment...

This review contains spoilers.

1.6 Red-Faced

We're back in the correct timeline on Supergirl after a couple of weeks of muddled chronology, and thankfully this episode is more like some of the show's stronger efforts than last week's pretty underwhelming How Does She Do It? It's finally building up enough momentum for its thematic elements to evolve beyond the basic, kid-friendly messaging that's been present since the pilot, and that's more apparent than ever in Red-Faced.

The issue of the week that Kara must overcome is anger, and how she expresses that anger at work, in her personal life and out in the field as Supergirl. After scaring some kids while saving them from a dangerous driver and exploding at Cat after a particularly harsh slew of criticisms, Kara decides (or,

The Flash: a brief history of DC’s parallel universes

In light of The Flash’s game-changing finale Fast Enough, it’s probably time to learn about DC’s parallel universes...

This article contains big spoilers for The Flash’s season 1 finale, Fast Enough.

The Flash's first season has now drawn to a close with Fast Enough, a finale that wreaked havoc both on fans' emotions and assumptions about the programme's future. More so than any superhero season finale in recent memory, Fast Enough appeared to shatter its show’s status quo to smithereens.

Eddie is dead, and as a result, Eobard Thawne should have been wiped from the timeline. Eobard, the main villain of the series – the character that gave Barry and so many others their powers – now no longer exists. Given that Eddie is his ancestor, Eobard should have never existed at all, now that Eddie has died prematurely and put an abrupt stop to the growth of his family tree.

Disney to Reveal ‘Ambitious’ Theme Park Plans for ‘Star Wars’

Disney to Reveal ‘Ambitious’ Theme Park Plans for ‘Star Wars’
The big tease of what Disney has planned for “Star Wars” inside its theme parks continues 11 months before “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” flies into theaters.

Disney chief Bob Iger told Wall Street analysts that there’s “a fair amount of design and development (taking place by the company’s Imagineers) to greatly increase ‘Star Wars” presence in multiple locations around the world,” shortly after the Mouse House announced another strong financial quarter. “The plans are ambitious, so it’s going to take some time for them to be built and opened.”

While Iger said specific plans would be announced “later in 2015,” the executive already had announced “significant” plans for the franchise for which it paid George Lucas $4 billion in 2012. He also has said whatever new attractions are announced, they will be based on future films in the series, as well as its spinoffs. Several Disney parks currently include

The Big Tease – Why Movie Trailers Need to Hold Back

  • HeyUGuys
We begin with a still photo in the pages of a magazine, an image whose recollection time has has eroded but not erased; a large dinosaur footprint in the mud, alongside a further image of Sam Neill, Joseph Mazzello, and Ariana Richards sat in a treetop, face to face with a dinosaur…

Back in 1993 that’s all it took for Jurassic Park to become the most eagerly anticipated film of the decade. Hop forward what seems an evolutionary blink to April 2014 and we’ve just had the millionth trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 threaten to pummel us into vast apathy for a film which looks to be good old blockbuster fare. So why have studios taken this dumbed down, multi-format saturation approach to marketing their films? One which may have an adverse effect on audience appreciation and enjoyment of the final film?

Here’s why….

See the first teaser poster for The Desolation of Smaug

  • Cineplex
Just because Peter Jackson is holed in his native New Zealand filming pick-ups for the final two films of his Hobbit trilogy, doesn't mean he's forgotten about the fans eagerly awaiting the arrival of the second film, The Desolation of Smaug. To kick off the countdown to the movie's release on December 13, Jackson posted a first teaser poster on his official Facebook page.

Focusing once again on Martin Freeman's titular character, the poster sees Bilbo standing just outside the incredibly imposing but ruined entrance to the Lonely Mountain, aka the final destination of the first film's Unexpected Journey. The big tease here comes not in the location of our hero but in the glimpse of fire and billowing smoke at the heart of the image. That tell-tale glow seems to be the only sign Jackson's prepared to give us of the cunningly dangerous creature within.

Christine: Walk away.

Steve: Unconventional.

2. What was your favorite quote or scene from "Damned If You Do?"

Brosnan Will Be Last Man Out

Brosnan Will Be Last Man Out
“Written by Craig Ferguson.” There’s a credit you don’t see so often these days, though he has crafted scripts before, working on the likes of The Big Tease and Saving Grace. But while he’s largely penned comedy in the past, Ferguson has switched tracks into thriller territory for Last Man Out, which has Pierce Brosnan attached to star.Adapted by Ferguson and Ted Mulkerin from Stuart Neville’s revenge-thriller tome The Twelve, Last Man Out follows a former Ira hit man who is released from prison after 20 years.Haunted by his crime and the memory of the people he killed, he decides he can find no peace until he brings down vengeance on the people who ordered those murders on behalf of the victims. What is it with assassins growing consciences these days?Terry Loan is cranking the cameras, although while the project is being sold at Berlin’s film market,

Bethesda Teases New Skyrim Dlc Announcement Next Week

Bethesda Softworks has teased the next piece of downloadable content for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, with the promise to reveal all on November 5th.

The big tease came today via the publisher’s Twitter account with the message “Full Trailer on 11/5″, the above picture, and… nothing else.

Presumably this will be Skyrim‘s unannounced Dragonborn Dlc that was leaked out of the 1.8 beta last month, but that is just speculation at this point.

We will let you know as soon as the trailer drops next Monday. For now, the only thing we can say with certainty about this mystery Skyrim Dlc is that it will never be released for the PlayStation 3 in our lifetimes. Why? Because, much like Team Ico, Bethesda has not yet figured out how to properly develop games for Sony’s console.

Henry’s Crime tells the story of Henry Reeves) who finds himself dragged unwillingly into a bank robbery. The robbery goes wrong, Henry takes the fall, goes to jail, and then works out his own heist after he gets out in order to rob the bank. “I’ve done the time,” he says, “I might as well do the crime.”

Someone has not quite explained the concept of Double Jeopardy to Henry. Going to prison for trying to do a crime does not give you free rein to do the crime properly once you get out. It actually just means

M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender Superbowl Trailer

  • ReelzChannel
The entertainment site Ugo has managed to nab the Superbowl trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender before its television debut. Based on the popular animated TV series Avatar: The Last Airbender, the movie tells the story of Aang (played by Noah Ringer), the last of the peaceful Air Nomads, and his quest to defeat the Fire Nation and bring balance to the world. "Avatar" was dropped from the title for obvious legal reasons related to a certain little James Cameron movie that's popular right now.
