Check out Scarlett Johansson in the new LUCY trailer

Scarlett Johansson is getting another superhero gig in the new movie trailer "LUCY". Known to many as the "Black Widow" from the Marvel franchise "The Avengers", Johansson is kicking butt and taking names as she accidentally gains superhuman powers through no fault of her own. The plot is going off that idea that humans only use 10% of their brain. She quickly realizes she is using more than most. Directed by Luc Besson, who has written for franchises like Transporter and Taken. This will be the first time directing within this type of movie genre. Many know of his work as he was the director of the sci-fi movie "The Fifth Element". Johansson swings into action on the big screen on August 8, 2014. Until then you can see her this weekend in the new Captain America movie coming out Friday.

Christian Bale works his mojo in the new "American Hustle" trailer


Surrounded by an all-star studded cast, check out Academy Award Winning Actor Christian Bale playing a con man in the new movie trailer "American Hustle". Joining him is Academy Award Winner Jennifer Lawrence and Academy Award Nominees Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy Renner. From the get go we are traveling back in time with a retro-flash back from the 1970's era "fashion and hairstyles and once again, an incredible transformation from Bale, who looks to be going bald and gaining a few extra pounds around the waist. Which is a long ways away from playing the billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne in the Dark Knight trilogy. The trailer tells the story of Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale) and  his very seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) who are forced to work for a FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). who pushes them to turn the tables on other cons, mobsters, and politicians.

Movie fans are getting something of a treat as this is the second movie both Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper are in together. Many may remember their stunning performance on the big screen in last year's big hit "Silver Linings Playbook" which was also directed by American hustle's director David O. Russell. The pressure is on for Russell as this is his follow up movie since the success silver linings last year, which only took one Oscar Award for "actress in a leading role" which Jennifer Lawrence won. "American Hustle" comes to theaters on limited release on December 13th and released wide on Christmas Day.

Frankenstein Lives!! as Aaron Eckhart


The iconic movie monster from the 1930's is alive and back on the big screen in an action packed adaption called "I, Frankenstein". This version is based on the Darkstorm Studios graphic novel of the same name. Starring Aaron Echkart, who many remember as the Batman character "Two-Face" in The Dark Knight trilogy, comes off as intelligent and more evolved than a mindless beast. Eckhart looks to be one tough immortal that walks into a war of the dammed with angels and gargoyles going at one another. Looking ripped and fit in the trailer, this is Echhart most latest movie since playing the president in the action flick "Olympus Has Fallen". 

The movie also stars the ever beautiful and talented actress Yvonne Strahovski, who many remember from her role as Sarah Walker from the hit tv series "Chuck". She plays a scientist working to reanimate the dead. The movie also stars British actor Bill Nighy, who has become something a legend when it comes to fantasy films. With movies like "Underworld", "Wrath of the Titans", the Harry Potter Series, and "Dr.Who", Nighy is no strange to these types of projects.

Movie theater goers has not seen a version of the monster Frankenstein on the big screen for sometime. The last anyone saw was in the disastrous and poorly made movie "Van Helsing" in 2004, which was considered a flop at the box office. "I, Frankenstein"  comes to movie theaters January 24, 2014.

I recently met Actress Molly Quinn who plays "Alexis Castle" on ABC's Castle at "The Wait Is Over! ABC's Castle Is Back @ The Paley Center event. I asked her about what fans will enjoy the most, she said "I hope that they will fall in love with "Pi" as much as Alexis has and I am not thinking that they are. My family was very unhappy about it. I was at a family event and they all came up to me and they were like so what about this new guy you're dating and of course I think they are talking about my life and I am like no one and I'm like oh your talking about the show. So I hope they eventually warm up to Pi".

Actor Jon Huertas Confesses! "I am a real nerd at heart"


I recently got a chance to meet Actor Jon Huertas at the "The Wait Is Over! ABC's Castle Is Back @ The Paley Center Event and found out... he was once a hard-core nerd! "I am the only one of the cast that can legitimately say that I was in a D&D Club (Dungeons & Dragons). Some of them probably wouldn't even know what that is...I'm a real nerd at heart." said Huertas.

I also got a chance to ask about his character Detective Espiosito and if will see him more this season "Yeah there is some stuff coming up with Laney and Espiosito that will be on a serious note and with detective Ryan with his wife being pregnant and how will affect their relationship".

Event: "The Wait Is Over! ABC's Castle Is Back @ The Paley Center



The ABC Network show "Castle" took over The Paley Center last week in Beverly Hills to celebrate the new season as members of the cast and creative team participated in a special event featuring a by a lively on-stage conversation, followed by a preview screening for loyal fans and I got a chance to attend. Be warned, if you haven't caught up on this season already, there are spoilers below...

I was excited to speak first with Andrew Marlowe the Creator & Executive Producer of "Castle". If you don't know the man, go look him up, he has ton's of geek "street cred". When asked about what fans will enjoy most this season "I think fans have an expectation to see what’s going to happen with the Castle/Beckett relationship. They finally got engaged and really explore what that engagement means as they head towards the next phase of their relationship and they’ll face the same challenges that any couple who’s gotten engaged have faced and of course it’s filtered through the 'Castle lens', so it’s going to be heighten, it’s going to be fun, and it’s going to be dramatic. I think fans can expect more great fun cases in the very much ‘Castle language’ we all know and love".

Marlowe when on to say, when asked about the character development of each season "Part of our challenge is that everything has to be filtered through a murder investigation. So it’s very hard to do character based scenes if the murder is moving forward. So you know we would like to give credit to everyone including Castle and Beckett but we also have to tell a procedural. But we've enjoyed developing them and we feel every season they get a little richer as they deserve to get".

I also got a chance to talk with with everyone's favorite "detective duo", Actors Seamus Dever and Jon Huertas. When asked about the Castle and Beckett relationship this season "I think they will enjoy that the two of them finally admitting that they are going to be together forever and the rest of us have to sort out our relationship with that. I think the fans will be very happy that romance is finally sealed and we’re not back tracking with anything". said Dever. Huertas followed up by saying "We're going to see how that affects the precinct. Detectives Ryan and Esposito will definitely get to see their 'big sister' moving on to a whole different type of life. I think that is one thing the fans will enjoy the dynamic of the team changing for the better".

Weekend Box Office: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 climbs to the top with $35 million



It was a busy weekend box office again as "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" took number one with $35 million. In second place this weekend was "Prisoners" with $11.2 million. This thriller has an amazing cast but it won't do much better simply because of the R rating it has. Though it's worth your time checking out if you're into those kinds of movies. 
In third place was the new movie "Rush" starting Chris Hemsworth with $10.3 million. Out of the top three this movie looks the most fun to watch and worth spending your money on. In fourth and fifth place was "Baggage Claim" and "Don John" with $9.3 million and $9 million. For more information check out www.boxofficemojo.com. 

AMC gearing up for "Walking Dead" companion series for 2015 Premiere



Zombie fans rejoice! Because in 2015 we will get to see not one but two "Walking Dead" tv shows grace us with their presence on AMC. The new show is currently in the developing stages but since the creator of the series/comic book will be one of the producers, I have high hope that this is going to be amazing. 

Deadline.com is reporting that Charlie Collier, AMC's president and general manager said “Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer”. He went on to say that the new series will have “an entirely new story and cast of characters”. “It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse”. 

So who's ready for more gore, zombie kills, and "end of the world" mayhem?
