Selena Gomez is setting the record straight about all the rumors! It's no secret that Taylor Swift's "Bad Blood" is allegedly about her ex-pal Katy Perry, and Selena's character in the video looked strikingly similar to the "Dark Horse" singer. In a new interview with New Zealand radio's "The Edge Afternoons" on Tuesday, the former Disney darling revealed the truth about rumors that she has bad blood with Perry during a game of "Tabloid True or False." "Is it true that you called Katy Perry after the 'Bad Blood' video just to make sure she knew that you were acting and you weren't being mean to her?" the radio host asked. The answer to that one was a big ... no. "That's false, I love Katy. I just talked to her," Selena expained. "She's amazing. But I didn't talk about that, but i just talked to her." Gomez »

Todd Solondz has indeed assembled a thoroughly Solondz-esque cast for his next film "Wiener-Dog." As previously announced, Julie Delpy and Greta Gerwig will lead an ensemble that now features Kieran Culkin, Danny DeVito, Brie Larson, Ellen Burstyn, Zosia Mamet and playwright Tracy Letts. The film tells several stories revolving around one particular dachshund who, according to Annapurna Pictures, "seems to be spreading comfort and joy." Let it be known that in Solondz's world grotesque yet lovable misanthropes, from "Happiness" to "Storytelling" and most recently "Dark Horse," all is never what it seems.

Few comics sit at the intersection of “fan beloved,” “industry defining,” and “absolutely impossible to acquire” the way the EC Comics library does. For a while they almost felt like Comics’ very own Holy Grail. On one hand, you’ve got the Tales From The Crypt brand itself, which has left an indelible mark on pop culture with films, cable TV series, Saturday morning cartoons, and a line of revival graphic novels from Papercutz — a proud legacy, to be sure. But on the other hand, you enter into the more nebulous region of pop cultural osmosis, and it’s there that the legend of Bill Gaines’ little comic line that could grows to gargantuan levels. The baby boomers that ate his ghoulish “mags” up in the early ‘50s eventually grew into the genre fiction movers and shakers of the ‘70s and ‘80s — from cult directors like George Romero and Joe Dante, »

Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Game Of Thrones is an epic drama set in the world of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land whose summers and winters can last years. Summers span decades. Winters can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun. It will stretch from the south, where heat breeds plots, lust and intrigues; to the vast and savage eastern lands; all the way to the frozen north, where an 800-foot wall of ice protects the kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men...all will play the 'Game of Thrones.' Dark Horse is proud to announce its exclusive merchandise for San Diego Comic-Con International 2015. All »

Now that we’ve come out of the Cannes ether, we can examine several of the names glaringly absent from the lineup that may potentially premiere on the Lido this fall. With controversial moves finding Garrel, Gomes, and Desplechin playing the Quinzaine, while Naomi Kawase and Apichatpong Weerasethakul got slotted in Un Certain Regard, we’re aggravated and pleased about some of this shifting around, but all in all, the main competition this year didn’t end up feeling like many programming risks were taken.
First off, to the general surprise of all, German director Maren Ade and British director Terence Davies were absent from the line-up, both with new highly anticipated titles (Toni Erdmann and Sunset Song respectively). Thierry Fremaux, arguably, tried to mix things up a bit with the Main Competition this year, inviting two female directors (Sacre Bleu!), including Valerie Donzelli and repeat offender Maiwenn (both titles »

Katy Perry is baring it all for fashion! The "Dark Horse" singer goes nearly naked in her debut campaign as the new face of Moschino, showing off her killer curves in nothing but a black fur coat with the brand's trademark design. She shared the super sexy ad on Instagram on Monday with the simple caption: "Katy x Moschino #2." The songstress gave us another peek at her campaign last week, where she was seen rocking ridiculous amount of gold jewelry, a matching gold bra and a patchwork denim jacket from designer Jeremy Scott’s fall-winter 2015 collection. In a third pic, Perry dons a purple ribbed sweater, quilted orange jacket and matching hats to cover up her cropped, Kris Jenner 'do. This isn’t the first time the brunette bombshell has linked up with Moschino! Katy attended the Met Gala this year with Scott, representing the label from head to toe in a colorful graphic gown. »

Neca's Toys"R"Us exclusive Alien vs. Predator figures can be purchased later this fall. A Q&A with David Ryan Keith from The Redwood Massacre and details on a Fright Rags Jurassic Park-inspired T-shirt are also featured in this round-up.
Neca's Toys"R"Us Exclusive Alien vs. Predator Figures: These figures will be available to purchase in Toys"R"Us stores in October for $43.99 and they will come with a mini-comic version of the original Dark Horse story:
"This special edition action figure 2-pack is a loving recreation of this classic pairing from the 1994 Kenner toy line. It includes Renegade Predator with rifle, bladed weapon, and interchangeable masked and unmasked heads. He is painted in an all-new color scheme with brown armor, faithful to the original Kenner release.
The Alien uses the 1979 “Big Chap” body with a glossy black dome and darker black decoration, again faithful to the original Kenner version. »

Celebrity fashion - Katy Perry is the new face of Moschino. The 30-year-old singer announced her new role on social media by posting a photograph from the fashion brand's Fall 2015 campaign shoot, in which she wears a gold bra and short dark wig. The 'Dark Horse' hitmaker received more than 175,000 likes within an hour of posting the picture alongside the simple caption ''The Face of Moschino'' and the label's creative director, Jeremy Scott, is thrilled to have her on board. He tweeted: ''So happy to have @KatyPerry as the face of @Moschino!!'' The announcement won't come as a surprise to those following Katy's red carpet appearances since the 'Roar' singer has supported the brand for many years. She recently wore a graffiti print dress by the designer to the Met Ball and teamed the gold quilted bra - featured in the shoot - with patchwork denim dungarees »
Dark Horse Comics has spawned cult favorite comics-to-film properties like “Hellboy,” “Sin City,” early Jim Carrey vehicle “The Mask,” “Timecop,” “Mystery Men,” “American Splendor” and more under the production arm of the company, Dark Horse Entertainment, led by company founder Mike Richardson. The company, along with Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow, is producing live-action version of “Tarzan” starring Alexander Skarsgård, Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Christoph Waltz, Djimon Hounsou and John Hurt. The movie is slated for a July 2016 release. And on TV, Dark Horse’s “Dark Matter” premieres on Friday on the Syfy Channel. The series follows a group »

One episode was provided for reviewing purposes prior to broadcast.
It took me approximately five minutes to estimate the kind of Syfy series that Dark Matter would be. None would call the network’s track record unblemished, exactly, so deciding to give a new Syfy show a chance is sometimes a crap shoot. You could win big (last year’s Ascension sure came close), or you could lose even bigger. Dark Matter, the network’s new series based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name, fits rightfully on brand with Syfy’s pivot away from quirky ephemerality (Eureka, Warehouse 13) and into the grittier deep space shenanigans of yesteryear – or, you know, when Battlestar Galactica made them a lot of money.
But now, thanks to Dark Matter‘s dramatically preposterous mishandling of both its “adult” themes and that elusive grittiness, Syfy is even further away from the quality »

What is it about super heroes and prisons? First Ben (The Thing) Grimm went breaking bad by breaking out of jail. Then the good guys warehoused super villains in less-than-legal lock-ups on the TV shows Arrow and The Flash. The Thing, Green Arrow, and the Flash. These are long-time, venerable, white-hat heroes, not your new-fangled heroes of questionable pedigree and even more questionable morality. These were the types of heroes who stood for something. Something noble.
Another in that long line of long-lived, white hat heroes was Captain Midnight. Captain Midnight started on the radio in the fall of 1938. So he’s older and more venerable than any the comic-book super heroes except Superman and, maybe, the Crimson Avenger. And he was just as white-hat as any of them.
Sure his cowl was a dark blue. But let’s face it, neither Green Arrow nor the Flash sport headgear that’s regulation ivory, »

There's no "Bad Blood" here! Ellie Goulding posted photo of herself and some gal-pals, including Lorde and Katy Perry, partying at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood over the weekend, but it was quickly taken down. The choice to remove the pic is an interesting one because Goulding's Bff Taylor Swift has an on going feud with the "Dark Horse" singer. Could Goulding have removed the picture so she wouldn't get in trouble with Swift? She might have, but that's not why she did it! The "Love Me Like You Do" crooner admitted to Ode that she deleted the pic, which features one heck of a squad, because she didn't like her appearance! "I deleted that because I looked »
