Watch The Captain Underpants Trailer

DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released the first trailer for the upcoming Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie!

Based on the worldwide sensation and bestselling book series, and boasting an A-list cast of comedy superstars headed by Kevin Hart and Ed Helms, DreamWorks Animation brings audiences the long-awaited global movie event, Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. This raucously subversive comedy for the entire family tells the story of two overly imaginative pranksters named George and Harold, who hypnotize their principal into thinking he’s a ridiculously enthusiastic, incredibly dimwitted superhero named Captain Underpants.

David Soren (Turbo) is directing the Captain Underpants movie from a script by Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors, Storks). The adaptation features the voices of Kevin Hart (Ride Along, Jumanji) and Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley, Search Party) as George and Harold, Nick Kroll (Loving, Sing) as the villainous Professor Poopypants, Jordan Peele (Key & Peele, Keanu) as nerdy tattletale Melvin Sneedly, and Ed Helms (The Office, The Hangover) as Captain Underpants himself.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie will debut in theaters on June 2, 2017.

Check Out The IMAX Poster For Guardians of The Galaxy 2

Marvel Studios has released the official Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 IMAX poster! For the release of the poster, director James Gunn took to Facebook to talk about the film’s use of 3D and IMAX, saying:

“Those who have followed me awhile know that IMAX is the optimal way to view a Guardians movie. I personally oversee the 3D, crafting every shot, and only in IMAX do we shift aspect ratios during big scenes so that you get nearly 30% more screen size than anywhere else. Unlike many other films today where screen size shifts and 3D are afterthoughts, we plan our aspect ratios during the script stage, and every single shot is tailored for 3D as we shoot it. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 is designed to be a fully immersive experience to be seen IN theaters. I’m glad that we’ve been able to partner up with IMAX from the moment of its conception.”

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 stars Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora, Dave Bautista as Drax, Vin Diesel as the voice of Groot, Bradley Cooper as the voice of Rocket, Michael Rooker as Yondu, Karen Gillan as Nebula, and Sean Gunn as Kraglin. New cast members include Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis, Elizabeth Debicki as Aesha, Chris Sullivan as Taserface and Kurt Russell as Ego, the Living Planet.

Set to the backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2, the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel continues the team’s adventures as they traverse the outer reaches of the cosmos. The Guardians must fight to keep their newfound family together as they unravel the mysteries of Peter Quill’s true parentage. Old foes become new allies and fan-favorite characters from the classic comics will come to our heroes’ aid as the Marvel cinematic universe continues to expand.

Directed and written by James Gunn, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is produced by Marvel Studios’ president, Kevin Feige, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Nik Korda and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. Opening in theaters on May 5, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be followed by Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 7 and Thor: Ragnarok on November 3. Avengers: Infinity War is scheduled to open on May 4, 2018.

Electric Violin Is The New Hype of Music For 2017

Violins altogether have been with people far longer than an average instrument. Known to be a wooden string instrument of the violin family, it is the smallest one yet with the highest pitch. Musical instruments such as this one have been around for quite a while. Made with spruce or maple wood, a violin can go a long way if handled with care. A professional violin has already tested time but why are people still opting out to use electric violin?

Hint: modern time can change anything within its radius. 

Years passed have given far larger opportunities for every musical enthusiast. Changes have drawn out a lot of interest and it has never gone better. From flutes down towards pianos, the era now is encroached by a powerful variety of music. This can be said about electric violins such as the Yamaha electric violin as they are becoming popular these days.

According to some reports, 12% of violin learners are now using the electric violin. The reason for using one is the same reason why most individuals are using electric guitars. Acoustic counterpart aside, electronic devices usage has a sense of liberation. With how the industry is tuning in with their songs, a lot of people would like to go with the trend.

Its features are far different from the ordinary one. To think about it, it’s highly improved than expected because it already has volume adjustments, amp, and the ability to change the sound. Anyone can record a piece being played and be able to edit it through the use of a computer. This is one of the biggest factors of playing a modified electric violin. It provides a larger musically inclined perception in changing and creating a new composition.

There are a lot of accessories that can go with it too. Using this type of violin is a gateway to adding a couple of touch-ups, so a person can definitely tweak it a bit. For example, one can use a headset with an SD card full of songs to practice all the while not disturbing others when doing so. See, learners who are beginning to play the violin can’t just play it smoothly. But utilizing a “silent” violin like an electric one can answer to the cause.  There are many choices of items for anyone can use while using their violins.

This kind of violin is not one to disappoint especially with how violin makers are creating their own version of this stringed instrument. Skull is designed perfectly to portray a skull version of a violin, the Rocket EVN has a sleek “S” style, and some only features half of the body. Many sophisticatedly made violins are resurfacing nowadays with lots to offer.

By definition, a violin is a beautifully made with wood, classic instrument. But modern times are taking a turn of the tide specifically with how popular electric stringed instruments are nowadays. With the increasing demands and the changing in views, there’s no question why lots of people would want to use electric violins in the first place.

Dark Hall Mansion To Release Gone With The Wind Print By Laurent Durieux On March 24, 2017

Dark Hall Mansion in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, is pleased to release the latest limited edition fine art print in their ongoing DHM Seminal Film Series, their officially licensed “Gone With The Wind” screen prints by leading contemporary artist Laurent Durieux, available Friday, March 24th, at 12:30 PM-PST!

Few words are needed to comment on this 1939 film’s landmark place in cinematic history, Laurent’s piece addresses its varied themes and arc with boldness and subtlety. From his powerful yet emotionally conflicted rendering of Leigh’s expression as Scarlett O’Hara to the provocative visual concept for Scarlett herself as both woman and thematic entity, Laurent’s piece lends itself to charged contemplation. On closeup you’ll find his address of the horrors of war, the destruction of Tara, the famed exit of Clark Gable’s Rhett Butler, as well as more subtle elements throughout such as Ashley’s image in Scarlett’s hand, the inscriptions on varied tombstones and more. Laurent’s piece is at once evocative of original 1930’s vintage movie posters while still very contemporary in approach and personal to the artist’s style and aesthetic.

This limited edition Durieux print release is yet another in DHM’s Seminal Film Series which has included Laurent Durieux contributions for DHM on “Metropolis,” “Phantom of the Opera” and “It’s a Wonderful Life,” all editions have long since sold out.
