Netflix 'Inspector Gadget' cartoon reboot gets a trailer

For children of the 80's like me, 'Inspector Gadget' wasn't just the highlight of ABC TV or a trip to the video shop - it was probably my first pop culture obsession. Well either that or 'Thomas the Tank Engine. So it's with more than a passing interest that I was keen to check out the newly rebooted CG series which has been picked up by Netflix, and which has just released it's first trailer.

 

 

I'll be honest - first impressions don't seem great. And why the hell have they changed that classic theme song? The new 26-episode series hits the US Netflix platform today, before widening to other markets including Latin America, the U.K., Ireland, Benelux, France and the Nordics later in the year.

Arnold's new movie zombie movie 'Maggie' gets its first trailer

Before we see Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator: Genisys, we'll see Arnie starring in the zombie movie 'Maggie' which also stars Abigail Breslin from Little Miss Sunshine and Zombieland.

 

 

As you can see from the trailer, Arnold's daughter gets infected, which sees Arnold playing a very dark and serious role this time around. It has a very 'The Last of Us' feel, the smash hit game on the PlayStation 3 and 4 from Naughty Dog, and it should, considering Maggie was directed by Henry Hobson. Hobson was the Title Sequence Director and Designer on The Last of Us.

 

Maggie will reach theaters in May.

Shooting to prominence on the UK talent show 'The X Factor', judge Simon Cowell signed members Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson to his label Syco Records in 2010 before selling millions of copies of their first four albums, DVDs and lucrative merchandise which propelled them into super-stardom. Ironically, the band's latest album titled 'Four' now signifies the number of members.

 

Never fear however, as Cowell has confirmed that "Niall, Liam, Harry and Louis are hugely excited about the future of the band".

Unrated 'Fifty Shades of Grey' extended cut coming to Blu-ray

Made on a paltry production budget of just $40 million, the recently released adaptation of EL James 'Fifty Shades of Grey' has gone against the grain of damning critical reviews and piqued the curiosity of cinema goers, grossing well over half a billion dollars at the international box office. As a special treat for fans who crave even more BDSM kink, Universal will release an extended cut of the film on Blu-ray, along with an alternate ending.

 

 

Released on May 1st in the United States and on May 21st in Australia, the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Blu-ray will feature both the newly completed unrated cut and the original theatrical version, along with the theatrical cut and over two hours of additional features including an alternate ending, interviews, behind the scenes features and music videos.

 

Despite the massive success of the film which has smashed expectations, the studio is moving slowly with plans for the second installment which is likely to be released in 2017, with stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson already signed to reprise their roles.

'Star Wars' Tatooine set now a terror warzone

The crisis that has engulfed the Middle East thanks to the rise of ISIS (or 'Daesh' as Coalition forces prefer to refer to it) continues to march through the African continent and now threatens the small Tunisian town which served as the backdrop of the original 'Star Wars' film shoot in 1976.

Dedicated fans of the franchise have made pilgrimages to the areas where George Lucas filmed scenes of the alien planet Tatooine (a play on the real town's name of Tataouine) in 'A New Hope' but now the tourism trade has all but come to a standstill following a gun attack on tourists at the National Bardo Museum in Tunis which killed 19 people.

 

Tunisia is now sadly caught up in the march of ISIS, with three young men recently arrested in an attempt to cross into Libya to join the terror cell.

Fox announces 'X-Files' return with Mulder and Scully

Earlier this year, we reported that Twentieth Century Fox was close to securing a deal to bring back the classic TV show 'The X-Files', and today the network has made it official - The 'X-Files' are being reopened!

Series creator Chris Carter and stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson have come to an agreement with Twentieth Century Fox to return their talents to the show, with a 6 episode limited series to begin production in the middle of the year. A release date has not been set, but is likely to hit at the end of the year, or at the start of the 2016 sweeps period in late January.

 

The last time Mulder and Scully reprised their roles was in the 2008 theatrical sequel 'I Want to Believe' which disappointed many fans for eschewing the alien mythology plot thread of later seasons. There is currently no word yet on the projected storyline, however a comment from Chris Carter seems to imply that this series will be standalone episodes by saying "The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories". Either way, the truth is out there - and I'm looking to see some more of it.
