New Avengers Footage Shown… in Car Commercial!

We all know that product placement is here to stay, as are “the official whatever of whoever” sponsorships. We live with it. But here is a benefit of the advertising partnership: sometimes we get to see cool footage in the commercials, as is the case with Audi and Avengers: Age of Ultron.

A:AoU opens May 1. I presume Audis are available now at your local dealerships.

Deadpool’s Movie Costume Looks Like Deadpool’s Comic Book Costume

deadpoolDon’t laugh; it’s no small thing that the lead character’s onscreen costume will resemble what he wears for his four-color adventures in print every month — just ask the X-Men!

Facing Down Lex Luthor

lexbaldyThe first image of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has surfaced in Entertainment Weekly, and it’s just what we expected: Lex is shaved bald and he’s glowering at the camera.

So, there’s nothing new, aside from his age.

Or is there?

Director Zack Snyder claims his version of Lex is an all-new character, telling EW:

He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure, other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course… Our Lex is disarming, and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.

BvS:DoJ opens March 25, 2016.

The 12th Doctor in 5 TARDIS Console Rooms!

This is just a bit of visual tomfoolery for those of us in the USA, because The Doctor Who Experience is way over in Blighty, but the exhibition has a new show biginning this Easter featuring Peter Capaldi in a spot of bother with the desktops in the TARDIS console room.

I love seeing grumpy 12 say: “I do miss proper buttons; everything’s so swipe-y these days!”

New ‘Age of Ultron’ TV Spot Is Action-Packed

As the magic day — the first of May — approaches, the promotion onslaught for Avengers: Age of Ultron will begin in earnest. But for a film that looks like this much fun, I don’t think anyone is going to mind! Just watch the third TV commercial:

Did you catch the first clear, full-face shot of the Vision right there at the end, or did you blink? He’s the red-faced guy.

As a public service, here are the first and second TV spots, and the amazing full-length movie trailer.

Witness the Second GAME OF THRONES Trailer

The second full-length trailer for season five of HBO’s GAME OF THRONES looks to feature more than enough action to satisfy viewers. Check it out!

Oh, so that’s what Dany was talking about when she mentioned she’s going to “break the wheel” in the other clip! Now it all makes sense!

The new season of GOT premieres April 12.

Meet GAME OF THRONES’ Sand Snakes

Perhaps the most significant addition in season five of GAME OF THRONES will be the Sand Snakes, the bastard daughters of Prince Oberyn Martell of Dorne, three half-sisters looking to avenge their father’s death at the hands of the Mountain last season.
