Wonder Woman 1984 may introduce more Amazons in the upcoming sequel.

"The world needs Wonder Woman now more than ever, and with Wonder Woman 1984 looming on the horizon, we’re all itching for some kind content of Diana Prince. After her first movie, we’ve only seen our favorite Amazon in Justice League, and I like to pretend that movie does not exist because I personally hate how they treated the Amazons and, more specifically, Diana as a character. So, for me, I

Nicholas Britell (‘Succession’) on differences composing for film and TV: ‘You have to focus on the bigger picture’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

Nicholas Britell (‘Succession’) on differences composing for film and TV: ‘You have to focus on the bigger picture’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
When Nicholas Britell began composing the music for HBO’s “Succession,” his first TV project, the main challenge was reorienting how a score would be structured over a 10-hour production rather than just 90-120 minutes. “I think the idea of how different musical themes are initially seeded in the beginning of the show, where they come back, how they evolve, it is a bit different on television than in film,” he says in our recent webchat (watch the exclusive video above). He adds that by looking to the bigger picture of the characters and storylines, he was able to write pieces of music rather than just coming up with a cue that’s used moment-to-moment.

“Succession” follows the Roy family whose patriarch, Logan (Brian Cox), owns a vast global media empire. Logan’s three adult children, Kendall (Jeremy Strong), Roman (Kieran Culkin) and Siobhan (Sarah Snook), are constantly jockeying to

David Hasselhoff teases his involvement in a Knight Rider reboot

David Hasselhoff has teased that he might be involved in a future Knight Rider reboot.

David Hasselhoff was one of the biggest stars of TV’s yesteryear, thanks in no small part to his work on the massive shows Baywatch and, of course, Knight Rider. There was an attempt to bring Knight Rider back in 2008 without Hasselhoff, despite the actor’s interest.

“We talked about another series about eight to nine years ago,” Hasselhoff told The Mirror in a recent interview. “But they wanted to do it without me.

“I even said I didn’t have to be the lead. I didn’t even need to be in it that much, I could cameo or something, but they didn’t listen. I wanted to tell them what the morals behind Knight Rider were, the morals behind Baywatch and why they worked!”

Hasselhoff said he realised more clearly what made these

“Greatest Love Story” hitmakers Lanco capped the opening leg of their first headlining tour at Nashville’s Cannery Ballroom Friday night, bringing a combustible mix of romance and live-for-the-moment joy to a sold-out crowd of about 1,000 hometown fans.

Having spent the summer on Dierks Bentley’s Mountain High Tour and then their own Hallelujah Nights run, the five-piece band — made up of frontman Brandon Lancaster, guitarist Eric Steedly, drummer Tripp Howell, bassist Chandler Baldwin and multi-instrumentalist Jared Hampton — showed why they’ve been earning a reputation as one of country’s most potent live acts.

15 Unlikely Celebrity Christmas Albums That Make You Go ‘Huh?’ (Photos)
If you’re looking for something a little different to listen to this holiday season, you’ve come to the right place. TheWrap found some “interesting” options to your standard Sinatra, Buble or Mariah Christmas tunes that’ll either have you singing along… or scratching your head.

“Shatner Claus – The Christmas Album” William Shatner adds his own comedic spin to 13 holiday classics, making them more like exaggerated dramatic readings then songs you’d hum along to. From a punk rock version of “Jingle Bells” to “Feliz Navidad” delivered with exclamation points, it’s just about as entertaining as it gets… even if you’re not a Trekkie. Reviews on Amazon go from “Life changing, comedy and entertainment gold” to ” oh No No No.”

“Christmas Time With The Three Stooges” You read that right. This raucous slapstick trio of Larry, Moe and Curly Joe originally cut a Christmas album in 1960. But

Comic Con Scotland: For the Love of 80s – Event Report

  • Nerdly
The weekend of November 10th-11th saw some of team Nerdly make the 3-hour trek up to Edinburgh for the inaugural Comic Con Scotland event which, given the guest list, had also been dubbed “For the Love of 80s.” Not really surprising also given that this convention was put on by the folks at Monopoly Events – who also run For the Love of SciFi and For the Love of Horror out of Manchester’s Bowlers Exhibition Centre.

The big draw for this event was the plethora of 80s superstars who were in attendance: Lou Ferrigno, David Hasslehoff, Streethawk’s Rex Smith, Dirk Benedict, Gremlins’ Zach Galligan, Bret “The Hitman” Hart, Ray Parker Jr. who wrote the theme tune for Ghostbusters, and many more. There were also a number of props and vehicles from 80s franchises to take photos of – the A-Team van, Kitt fron Knight Rider, the bikes from both

That is right, the 80’s are heading to Scotland for Comic Con Scotland and into the heart of its capital city Edinburgh for Monopoly Events convention For The Love of 80s, and they are bringing some of the biggest if not the biggest talents of Film, TV and even some sports faces you will be able to lose your nostalgic mind to.

Here is the best part. Myself (Kevin – the talent) and my co-host Chris (the Scottish one) are making our way up to do some coverage of this awesome event. I mean, when we saw some of the names that were going to be only 40 minutes away from our sleepy little hermit town, it seemed rude of us not to attend this event. So if you are heading there keep an eye out for us, as we would love to chat to people who are fans of all things the 80’s had to offer.

So What’s Going on with the Knight Rider Reboot Anyway?

Knight Rider is a favorite from back in the day and it was among the many shows that people would look forward to with every episode. After a talking car was something so advanced for that time that the mere idea was enough to push a story. Plus it wasn’t just a talking car, it was a car that could think on its own and engage in a solid discussion with the driver on a regular basis. This was one of the shows that made David Hasselhoff a big star after all, and has been on the minds of many

Q&A: Val Kilmer Talks ‘The Super’ and ‘Top Gun’ Sequel
In his lengthy and varied career, Val Kilmer has played everyone from Jim Morrison to Doc Holliday to Mark Twain – in multiple projects. He’s played Moses in the lavish musical “The Ten Commandments” and voiced Kitt the car in the “Knight Rider” reboot. Along the way, he’s worked with filmmakers from Oliver Stone to Ron Howard and actors from Tom Cruise to Marlon Brando. In short, there’s no pigeonholing the actor who launched his career with broad comedies like “Top Secret!” and “Real Genius” before becoming a household name thanks to “Top Gun” – a role he’ll reprise in the upcoming sequel.

So it’s surprising to hear there’s something Kilmer hasn’t done, but that’s the case with “The Super,” which he says is his first straight-up genre thriller. Based on an idea from and produced by “Law & Order” mastermind Dick Wolf, “The Super
