New LEGO Batman Poster

cym_yo1w8aqqn_z

Warner Bros. Pictures has just released, a new The LEGO Batman Movie poster that’s jam-packed with DC Comics LEGO minifigs.

Will Arnett reprises his role of Batman from The LEGO Movie as the voice of the titular Dark Knight, alongside Michael Cera as Robin the boy wonder, Rosario Dawson as Batgirl, Ralph Fiennes as Alfred Pennyworth, Mariah Carey as Gotham’s mayor and Zach Galifianakis as The Joker.

In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – LEGO Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: The LEGO Batman Movie. But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up.

Chris McKay is directing The LEGO Batman Movie from a script by Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter creator Seth Grahame-Smith (who will direct The Flash for Warner Bros. Pictures). Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who directed The LEGO Movie, are producing the film along with Dan Lin.

The LEGO Batman Movie will open in theaters on February 10, 2017. The LEGO cinematic universe will then expand again later in 2017 with the release of The LEGO Ninjago Movie. Catch it on the big screen September 22, 2017.

Whether you prefer comedy, drama, thrillers, or sci-fi, the lineup for 2016-2017 has something for everyone. Here is a sneak peek at some of the most anticipated primetime series that are airing in the upcoming season.

No matter what shows suck you in, thanks to advances in technology, you never have to miss one second of any of your favorite shows. With the use of a DVR, commonly used with local DIRECTV packages, you can record all your favorite shows for watching at a later time. Also, many television providers now also offer on demand options which allow for viewers to watch all their favorite shows at their own leisure.

Disney Channel’s Tangled Television Series

Perfect for the whole family is the Tangled series, which is based on the popular Disney movie by the same name. Many of the original voice actors from the original Disney movie return to lend their voices to the characters we all grew to know and love. Mandy Moore will voice Rapunzel while Zachary Levi rejoins the cast as Flynn Rider, also known as Eugene. Other favorite characters making an appearance in this made-for-tv adaptation include Rapunzel’s feisty chameleon Pascal and Flynn’s loyal steed Maximus. Tangled joins the Disney channel line-up beginning 2017. Check your local listings for details.

Lethal Weapon on Fox

For those who enjoy a good comedy, there is another television adaptation of a popular movie classic coming to Fox Network. This series is one part comedy and one part action and is certain to garner a following among fans of the original Lethal Weapon movie series which starred Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. In the Fox television series, Damon Wayans takes the role of Roger Murtaugh alongside Clayne Crawford who plays Martin Riggs. Lethal Weapon is slated to air right before the popular drama Empire on Fox.

Notorious on ABC

This television drama stars Piper Perabo as Wendy Walker, a cable news producer and her interactions with Mark Geragos, who is played by Daniel Sunjata. Geragos is a well established criminal defense attorney and Notorious lends insight to the intricacies of the interplay between the legal world and the news media.

AMC’s Better Call Saul

The award-winning dramedy follows the life of Jimmy McGill, before he was known as Saul Goodman, attorney to Walter White in the popular tv series Breaking Bad. In Better Call Saul, viewers get a glimpse of the life of Saul Goodman, operating as Jimmy McGill, a struggling criminal defense attorney in New Mexico. Better Call Saul paints the picture of the colored past of Jimmy McGill and his path to becoming a morally flexible lawyer operating a legal practice at a strip mall in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

This is just a quick glimpse of the plethora of television series offerings coming in the 2016-2017 season. With so much entertainment available, making good use of a DVR or on demand system may be beneficial. Never miss a minute of your favorite shows and dare to try something new.

The Mummy Teaser Trailer

mummyposter

Universal Pictures has debuted the trailer tease for The Mummy, coming to theaters on June 9, 2017. Stay tuned on Sunday for the full trailer!

Tom Cruise headlines a spectacular, all-new cinematic version of the legend that has fascinated cultures all over the world since the dawn of civilization: The Mummy.

Thought safely entombed in a crypt deep beneath the unforgiving desert, an ancient queen (Sofia Boutella of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Star Trek Beyond) whose destiny was unjustly taken from her, is awakened in our current day, bringing with her malevolence grown over millennia and terrors that defy human comprehension.

From the sweeping sands of the Middle East through hidden labyrinths under modern-day London, The Mummy brings a surprising intensity and balance of wonder and thrills in an imaginative new take that ushers in a new world of gods and monsters.

Cruise is joined by a cast including Annabelle Wallis (upcoming King Arthur, television’s Peaky Blinders), Jake Johnson (Jurassic World), Courtney B. Vance (TV’s American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson) and Oscar winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).

The Mummy is directed by Alex Kurtzman, who also produces alongside Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious series, Wanted) and Sean Daniel (The Mummy trilogy, The Best Man series). Jon Spaihts and Christopher McQuarrie wrote the screenplay, and Bobby Cohen executive produces. It’s being planned as the first film in the Universal Monster cinematic universe with plans for The Wolfman, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, and Van Helsing all in various stages of development.
