tron video game

Almost a year ago, it was revealed that Disney was secretly working on a Tron video game and imaginations got fired up. Between this video game, Tron characters joining Disney Infinity, the new Tron Lightcycle Power Run ride at Shanghai Disneyland, and the hazy existence of Tron 3 on the horizon, it was a good time to be a fan of this fascinating, but wounded film series.

And then Tron 3 was canceled. And now, that video game looks to be a pretty straightforward “runner,” albeit one that makes good use of the series’ stunning visuals. Weep, Tron acolytes! For this is not the best time to be fan of this franchise.

Alice Through the Looking Glass trailer

At last year’s San Diego Comic Con, I was shocked by the amount of people dressed up as Johnny Depp‘s loud and frightening take on the Mad Hatter. I’m always surprised by how much some people love the character, but then again, Tim Burton‘s adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s book made over a billion dollars at the box office, so audiences clearly have a fondness for this world.

Burton didn’t return to direct the sequelAlice Through the Looking GlassJames Bobin (The Muppets) took over the reins, and we’ll what he’s come up with this summer.

Netflix Presents The Characters

Netflix may not be a comedy channel per se, but with shows like W/ Bob & David, Master of None, and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, not to mention standup specials by the likes of Chelsea Peretti, Nick Offerman, John Mulaney, and Mike Epps, it’s fast becoming a destination for comedy fans. Now, with The Characters, they’re looking to give the next generation of comedians a boost.

Each 30-minute episode of the series is written by and stars a different comedian, who can do whatever they wish with the time allotted. The slate of talents includes Paul W. Downs (Broad City), Lauren Lapkus (Orange Is the New Black), John Early (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp), Tim Robinson (Saturday Night Live), Natasha Rothwell (Saturday Night Live), Henry Zebrowski (Heroes Reborn), Kate Berlant (The Greggs), and Phil Burgers (Dr. Brown). If you haven’t heard of some of these folks, that’s okay — the whole point is that they aren’t established stars just yet. Read More »

The Program began principal photography almost two and a half years ago, and that’s when we get our first look at actor Ben Foster in the role of Lance Armstrong. It’s an impressive transformation, but one we haven’t gotten to see on the big screen yet. After opening overseas and playing at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Stephen Frears‘ drama will premiere on DirecTV this month.
