Once again the Oscars have come and gone leaving in it’s wake a plethora of popular culture topics to discuss. With Ellen DeGeneres at the helm there was no shortage of quirky moments such as the “Selfie Seen Around The World” (seen below), which Ellen claimed broke Twitter. “We crashed and broke Twitter,” she said, implying that the service was having technical issues as a result of said Selfie.
Dark. Menacing. Exciting. All the things a trailer should be – this trailer delivers! You get a glimpse of the tone of the movie and no major plot points were given away. You see Godzilla, but not so much that you don’t want to see more. This made me even more excited for the May 2014 release. What do you think – are you excited? ARE YOU??? Let us know.
Sony Pictures announced today that the first full trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be coming out next month on the 5th.
In the film, rumor has it that Spidey just can’t keep the promise he made to Captain Stacy to stay away from his daughter, Gwen. Between High School, crime-fighting, digging for clues about his past and his forbidden love Parker barely has time to breathe. The last thing he needs is for the new villain, Electro to come on to the scene! But that is exactly what he is going to get in the form of Jamie Foxx!

LONDON — British audiences’ appetite for Jennifer Lawrence starrer The Hunger Games: Catching Fire proved insatiable, with the movie taking in a total of more than $19.5 million (£12 million) for distributor Lionsgate over the course of its opening weekend.
With the recent Success of shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, another announcement has recently been made that has Marvel fans both squee-ing and cringing. In conjunction with Netflix, Marvel is developing four new Super Hero series to have 13 episode runs using the streaming only medium. These heroes are Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.
Fall’s buzziest new drama had a super-powered premiere Tuesday night: ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. — a show so big it takes two company names to officially describe it — delivered 11.9 million viewers and a 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. That makes S.H.I.E.L.D. TV’s highest-rated drama debut in nearly four years (since ABC’s Vpremiere in November, 2009).
That adult demo number is particular impressive given the show’s time slot. S.H.I.E.L.D. had to self-start at 8 p.m. — no lead-in — and ran against huge competition: NBC’s The Voice and CBS’ NCIS are two of the most popular shows on television. And how did it stand up? S.H.I.E.L.D. (recap here) actually managed to tie the two-hour The Voice overall in the demo (4.6) — and beat it head-to-head during the 8 p.m. hour — while trouncing the return ofNCIS in the demo (3.4), though obviously losing among total viewers (19.4 million).
If you are not a fan of Flogging Molly, you need to be. They are an American seven-piece Celtic punk band from Los Angeles, California led by Irish vocalist Dave King, known for his work with Fastway. They brought rock and folk music a little closer with their astounding melodies, using such “rare” instruments as spoons, accordions, mandolins, and banjos. Born in Molly Malone’s, a small Irish watering hole smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles , Flogging Molly’s passionate bark adds up to one of the best escapes from the ordinary in music today.
