File this under "things I always wanted but didn't quite believe existed":

There is now a LIFE SIZED CAPTAIN AMERICA STATUE available for purchase.


Of course, for $3,300 (the EARLY BIRD SPECIAL price, btw) you could probably buy the ACTUAL Chris Evans, but I imagine this one would be more... er, compliant.

Just, you know, if anyone is still looking for a birthday present for me. This is out there.

(I will also settle for the miniature version. I'm sure we could find a Hot Toys doll that looks enough like me, and I could make 'em go at it. \o/)
next_to_normal: (awkward assassins)
* Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are making another movie together!

* Charisma Carpenter will be guest-starring on the next season of Lost Girl. This season just wrapped up, and I confess I've been steadily losing interest, so maybe this will renew it?

* In light of the politics around Winter Soldier, I'm glad that my Twitter feed turned up this older article about Steve Rogers' comics history and the political environment he grew up in. Also, here's some really excellent meta parsing the movie's political POV and Nick Fury's character arc.

* Jed and Mo talk more about Agents of SHIELD and the impact of Winter Soldier on the show. I kind of feel bad for them? It's like, "Here, congratulations, have a TV show. And oh, by the way, we will force you to CHANGE THE ENTIRE PREMISE before the end of the first season. So... good luck with that!"

* The other two creators (Jeph Loeb and Jeff Bell) also talk about recent developments, and Cobie Smulders is apparently coming back to AoS now that HIMYM is finished.

* Why doesn't the MCU have LGBT characters?

* There's talk of a Mystique spin-off X-Men film (a la Wolverine) starring Jennifer Lawrence. Won't anyone just let that poor girl sleep?

* No one is surprised that Game of Thrones was renewed for seasons 5 and 6.

* Matthew Weiner talks about the final season of Mad Men, and Jon Hamm talks about the mess that is Don Draper.

* No matter how you felt about the series finale, I can't imagine anyone thinking Battlestar Galactica needs to be rebooted again.

* Brie Larsen will be starring in the film adaptation of Room. And speaking of books turned into movies, here's the first footage of Gone Girl.

* Christian Kane is back on TV in The Librarians.

* Stephen Colbert is replacing David Letterman on The Late Show.
next_to_normal: (Steve close-up profile)
After seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, both [personal profile] angearia and [personal profile] per_aspera_ad_astra asked if they should watch Agents of SHIELD. Without spoiling, the end of the movie does indeed have some MAJOR repercussions for AoS that will likely make you curious how they'll handle it, even if you haven't watched or lost interest in the show long ago.

If anyone is looking to catch up, I've put together a guide of which episodes to watch and which to skip, so that you're up to date on the longer story arcs, but don't have to wade through all the mediocre stuff.

Full list under the cut. Minor AoS spoilers.

next_to_normal: (Chris perplexed face)
* The writers of Captain America: The Winter Soldier talk about Cap adjusting to the modern world. Plus, an interview with the Russos.

* The cast of Winter Soldier plays Would You Rather.

* Two thinkpieces on why the best Cap stories happen when America is confused about what it stands for, and how Cap is the most tragic Avenger (which, incidentally, is why I love his story so much).

* I will say that Captain America finally made Agents of SHIELD interesting. So curious how they're going to deal with the movie's developments.

* Jed and Mo attempt to address the show's critics - but I think they're fooling themselves if they think the problem is that audiences are expecting "a Marvel movie each week."

* J. August Richards talks about playing Deathlok, and a certain guest star will be popping up in the season finale.

* In this profile of Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, he drops the info that Marvel has movies planned out to 2028. Good lord.

* Feige also mentioned that Hawkeye and the Hulk will play significant roles in Age of Ultron.

* Here's a trailer for Jon Favreau's film, Chef, which I'm just going to assume is about Happy and Natasha opening a restaurant, while Tony gets a food truck.

* An interview with Game of Thrones producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Plus interviews with Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams and Isaac Hempstead-Wright (Arya and Bran Stark), and Gwendoline Christie (Brienne of Tarth), who, by the way, will also be appearing in Mockingjay.

* Josh Radnor talks about the HIMYM finale. This pretty much sums up my feelings on the episode. Apparently, the DVD will include an alternate ending.

* Jordan Gavaris talks about playing Felix on Orphan Black.

* I would so totally read the heck out of a Bryan Cranston memoir about Breaking Bad.

* Here is Jeremy Jordan singing "Let It Go."
next_to_normal: (Steve yellow)

I have seen Captain America: The Winter Soldier!

I have also seen [personal profile] angearia! (These two things are not unrelated.)



.....sorry what was I saying? (I'm pretty sure it was I WANT TO HAVE YOUR SUPERHERO BABIES.)

Alas, I have NO TIME to talk about them or anything else lately (you better believe we will be discussing that hot mess of a HIMYM finale), because I am going home and then to New York, after which I will then have two more Broadway shows to write about.

Is it June yet? :(

In the meantime, because this can't wait for the next linkspam, and also because I told Emmie to watch it, Chris' interview with Jimmy Fallon, in which he and his brother Scott are ridiculous goobers always and forever.
next_to_normal: (buddy system)
* Gone with the Wind is getting a prequel novel about Mammy (whose real name, it happens, is Ruth). Which reminds me, I never posted my GWTW meta/reaction post that I started writing last summer and never finished. I should maybe get back to that sometime.

* It never occurred to me that Winnie the Pooh needed an origin story film, but apparently he's getting one anyway.

* Coulson's cellist is finally making an appearance, and she looks a lot like Amy Acker.

* Over the last week or so, I've been binge-watching Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I watched the pilot back when it first premiered and wasn't really feeling it, but after hearing people rave about it for a whole season, I decided to give it another shot and I liked it! So here's an interview with Mike Schur, the co-creator. Plus, what the show can learn from Parks & Recreation.

* Matthew Weiner talks about Mad Men and is actually interesting, even though he still gives nothing away.

* Bryan Cranston talks Breaking Bad and his new role as President Lyndon Johnson on Broadway.

* Here's a recap of the Community panel at PaleyFest.

* Dan Rydell was temporarily resurrected when Josh Charles made an appearance on Keith Olbermann's show.

* Revisiting possibly the greatest thing HIMYM has ever brought us, Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segel once again sing "The Confrontation" from Les Miserables.

* Here's a sneak peek at Captain America's new uniform, which is changing yet again for Age of Ultron. (Also, am I displaying my obsessive nerdery if I point out that's clearly a stunt double and not Chris Evans, as the article states?)


Mar. 25th, 2014 11:57 pm
next_to_normal: Tony Stark wearing sunglasses (Tony shades)
* A long - like, three parts long - interview with Dan Harmon about Community and his other show that I don't watch.

* Josh Radnor talks about HIMYM ending. And (thank God!) Krysta Rodriguez is no longer starring in HIMYD, so once again I am FREE.

* My thoughts on The Good Wife's latest bombshell are pretty well summed up here. I applaud their ability to keep things under wraps without feeling the need to promote the "OMG moment" to death (looking at you, Scandal). Here's what the creators and cast had to say, the creators' letter directly to the fans, as well as an interview with you-know-who.

* Hettienne Park addresses some (spoilery) Hannibal-related outrage. #notforeating

* Someone has too much time on their hands: The Office Time Machine collects all the pop culture references from the show in the year of your choice.

* Jack's back and Chloe's gone full Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in the new 24: Live Another Day trailer.

* Lizzy Caplan talks about playing a character based on a real person on Masters of Sex. She also does a fantastic impression of her Israeli uncle.

* Here's a write-up of the Agents of SHIELD PaleyFest panel.

* Anthony Mackie talks about playing the Falcon in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

* I think my favorite part of this Chris Evans interview is all the quotes from the other Avengers actors who are pissed off about dieting. Or possibly RDJ mentioning that Chris "invited Susan and I back to their house to get in the Jacuzzi... that’s a vague memory, but that’s what I’d like for you to print."

(Also, "My kid believes that Captain America is real." Uh... how does he explain the fact that Daddy appears in movies with Captain America?)

* LMAO this Winter Soldier interview is hysterical.

"Who's the best looking superhero?"
Sebastian: "Iron -"
Mackie: "Falcon!"
Sebastian: "...Man." [and then Sebastian's FACE OMG what a side-eye]

Chris: "Hemsworth."
Scarlett: "Oh, really? Chris Hemsworth?"
Chris: "Did I say that way too quickly?... Is it weird that I said Hemsworth? It's weird. It's on film now."

(I also think it's adorable that Chris and Scarlett consistently answered with the actors rather than the characters.)

* Some close-up shots of Avengers: Age of Ultron filming in Italy, featuring Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. What is it exactly about Quicksilver that makes him look SO TERRIBLE in film adaptations? (The last paragraph of that article... I can't even.)

* Here's the trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past. The only X-Men movie I've seen is First Class and my only comics exposure is from Avengers crossovers, so I have next to no idea what this movie is actually about. Jennifer Lawrence is very blue?

* This is the first review I've seen for the Veronica Mars novel, a sequel of sorts to the movie, and it doesn't sound very promising.

* I meant to post this last week, but it got lost in my Pocket links, so if you haven't already seen it, James Marsters talked about his Spike graphic novel. Have to say, I am not impressed by the preview. He may have said the lines, but James doesn't write great Spike dialogue.

* RELEVANT TO MY READING LIST'S INTERESTS: A PSA about Villain Attraction Disorder.
next_to_normal: (Steve yellow)
* Patton Oswalt will be appearing on Agents of SHIELD as a comic book character.

* Here's an interview with the author of the Ms. Marvel comics, which features the first female Muslim superhero.

* Yes, another Captain America trailer. This one is different, I promise! (I swear to God you will hear my screaming for miles around when I see this movie.)

* Meanwhile Fox is already planning sequels for movies it hasn't made yet.

* I absolutely agree that a Veronica Mars movie trying to have broad appeal would not have been Veronica Mars. There is absolutely nothing wrong with making a niche movie for a particular audience. Also, here is the cast talking about the movie's big moments and an interview with Rob Thomas.

* I am confused as to why the trailer for The Giver is all in color. Wasn't that kind of a huge plot point of the book?

* Pixar is making a sequel to The Incredibles.

* Masters of Sex is coming back in July, and Betsy Brandt will be joining the cast.

* Parks and Recreation has been renewed for another season.

* There's now a website that has quantitatively resolved all TV arguments (with graphs!). What on earth will we do with all the free time?

* New Mad Men photos. Plus, a write-up of the PaleyFest panel with the cast.

* Casting a white Tiger Lily is only the latest in "racist things found in adaptations of Peter Pan." I keep thinking maybe this time Hollywood has learned its lesson, and yet they keep managing to prove me wrong!

* If you haven't been convinced to watch Enlisted yet, maybe this will help. Also, the best "save our show" campaign idea probably ever.

* Billy Joel sang with Jimmy Fallon and now I desperately want an iPad. (And yes, those two things are related.)

* Alternate Jennifer Lawrence scene from American Hustle. Which I still haven't seen so I don't really know the context, but I kind of think she's not really acting, and this is just what JLaw does when she is alone in her house? Or maybe that's just me.

next_to_normal: Jesse Pinkman pointing; text: Yeah, science! (yeah science)
So I haven't talked about my Crohn's lately, although there hasn't been much exciting happening. The treatment I was on (Remicade) has slowly stopped working as my body has grown resistant to it over the last couple years, which means (1) return of the gross symptoms and (2) we have to look for an alternative treatment. Yesterday, I went to see my doctor, who recommended that I join a clinical drug trial that he is currently working on.

The trial involves an infusion of stem cells, which somehow identify inflammation in your body - such as my inflamed intestinal tract - and heal it by, like, regenerating tissue or something. And the cells will distribute themselves to ALL active sites of inflammation, so it's not just for the Crohn's, it's also apparently being tested with heart attacks, injuries, arthritis...

And once you get the treatment, the stem cells are always in you, and they just hang out dormant until you hurt yourself (or until your immune system goes into overdrive and declares war on your digestive tract), and then they rush into action at the site of the inflammation or injury! AND THEY FIX YOU. All by themselves. Without you doing anything.

Basically, I will have super healing powers.

I mean, am I wrong? Doesn't that kind of sound like a superpower? Assuming it works, of course. It's all experimental. But, like, theoretically my body would just ~heal itself by regenerating tissue?

*scans list of side effects for "turn into enormous green rage monster"*

Nope, we're good! Sign me up!

(Also, Marvel? You know where to find me if you want me to join the Avengers.)
next_to_normal: (working)
* Ira Glass talks about "This American Life" being featured in Veronica Mars.

* This is a great look at the way Veronica Mars tackles class conflict in the movie, which points out some of the parallels to real-life "stop and frisk" and "stand your ground" cases.

* If you are a Kickstarter backer who has been having problems with the digital download from Flixster, you can get a refund if you purchase it somewhere else. (I was unable to get the download to work. Eventually I was able to stream it, although the picture quality was terrible and it kept buffering, but I saw it in the theater and I'm getting the physical DVD anyway, so I'm not too bothered about the download.)

* Here's a write-up of the Orange is the New Black panel at PaleyFest. Also, Danielle Brooks talks about Taystee, Yael Stone talks about being recognized on the train, and a great interview with Laverne Cox.

* PaleyFest also included a Lost reunion panel.

* Jordan Gavaris talks about his fake British accent on Orphan Black.

* Who wants to see Lupita Nyong'o in the next Star Wars? She should totally be the star.

* George R. R. Martin talks about Game of Thrones and staying ahead of the TV series.

* An interview with the married showrunners of The Good Wife.

* Marvel apparently has Sebastian Stan contracted for nine movies. Not that that tells us much, since Marvel likes to lock in actors for as long as possible. The reason they only have Chris Evans for six is because he negotiated them down from nine when he didn't want to make the commitment.

* Keep your eyes peeled for Avengers (formerly Stark) Tower in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

*  So I apparently had not noticed that when Batman-Superman (is that really what they're going with, or is that still a placeholder title?) got pushed back, it was scheduled for the same release date as an unknown Marvel film, which now turns out to be Captain America 3. When asked which movie would do better, Sebastian Stan and Anthony Mackie threw some shade, yo. LMAO

* Tom Hiddleston sings about fairy dust. You're welcome.

next_to_normal: (VM kiss)
[personal profile] per_aspera_ad_astra and I saw Veronica Mars in the theater today yesterday. You guys. We saw VERONICA MARS. In a MOVIE THEATER.

I AM NOT SURE I CAN FORM COHERENT THOUGHTS RIGHT NOW TBH. EVERYTHING I COULD POSSIBLY HAVE WANTED. I did pose the question to Kelly afterward whether or not people who had never seen the show would enjoy it, and I think they'd be missing like 60% of the enjoyment, but for the fans who watched the show and loved it and Kickstarted it and wore official Veronica Mars T-shirts to the movie theater (yes, we totally did that) it was PERFECT.

Kelly: "It felt like an extra-long awesome episode. Classic VMars!"

[Pause for many birthday celebrations.]

I started this post yesterday, and then... things happened. I had a good birthday! And now that I have had several hours to digest (both the movie and the birthday cake) I have slightly more coherent thoughts.

Spoilers! )
next_to_normal: (VM is smarter than you)
OMG so many people on my reading list screaming about this movie. AND IT IS THERE IN MY INBOX, TEMPTING ME.

But I WILL NOT WATCH IT YET, because [personal profile] per_aspera_ad_astra is coming and we (and [personal profile] angearia? maybe?) are going to see it tomorrow in the theater.  AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH


* Kristen Bell wants to do a sequel already, obviously, and she wants to do Frozen on Broadway.

* Pics from the new season of Orange is the New Black.

* CBS renewed basically everything, including my personal fave The Good Wife. Conspicuously absent from the list? SMG's The Crazy Ones.

* Louie now has a season 4 premiere date.

* As sitcoms continue to drop in the ratings, it provides more opportunities for low-rated "smart" comedies to succeed. Community may get that #sixseasonsandamovie after all.

* The creator of Enlisted talks about his obsession with death and how that shows up in Pete's PTSD on the show.

* New clone on Orphan Black! OMG new clone!

next_to_normal: Captain America giving Black Widow a boost; text: team work (teamwork)
* Matthew McConaughey explains the origin of his signature phrase.

* An interview with the creator of True Detective talking about season 1 and that finale.

* Ever wondered which of the cast of Veronica Mars can fit the most marshmallows in their mouth? Wonder no more.

* Which Veronica Mars character are you? I am Logan, which means I am snarky, occasionally violent, and madly in love with Kristen Bell. Sounds about right. Now if only I were the super-rich child of Hollywood actors (except... y'know, better, non-murdery ones than Logan's parents!).

* Check out the teaser for HBO's The Normal Heart, starring Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer.

* I haven't watched The Originals since the first couple episodes, but I'm surprised to hear that a major character is leaving the show.

* Neil Patrick Harris talks about his new Broadway show, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and many other things in this profile.

* Adrian Pasdar will be guest-starring on Agents of SHIELD as a character from the Hulk comics.

* Scarlett Johansson says her pregnancy won't impact the filming of Avengers: Age of Ultron (which is a good thing, since we know what Joss does to actresses who get unexpectedly pregnant).

* No surprise, Joss Whedon directed one of the post-credits scenes for Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

* Chris Evans clarifies his Marvel contract - he's not trying to get out of it, he swears! He just wants to ~direct more. Also, apparently his Thor: The Dark World cameo didn't count, so it looks like he'll be around for at least Cap 3 and Avengers 3?

* As for non-Marvel Chris Evans news, his film Snowpiercer FINALLY has a US release date.

* Zachary Levi is crowdfunding Nerd HQ this year, so if you want more Tom Hiddleston raptor impersonations, go donate!

* In defense of talking funny, or why accents are awesome.

* New trailer for Orphan Black, which returns April 19, and one for 24: Live Another Day, which premieres May 5.

* Cristin Milioti talks about HIMYM and addresses the theory that the Mother is dead.

* I'm a big fan of competence porn, so I enjoyed this piece on why we like characters who are good at their jobs.

* Matthew Weiner talks about the final season of Mad Men, and again in another interview here. There's also a great piece on Elisabeth Moss, who would be perfect if only she weren't a Scientologist.

* Amazon has picked up four of its pilots for series, including Transparent, which is the only one I watched (it was really good).

* Laura Benanti will be guest-starring on The Good Wife.

* Another interview with Emmy Rossum about Shameless.

* The other two detectives talk about working with Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in True Detective. Also, the real life case that may put the "true" in the title.

* And inspired by True Detective's season finale, an interesting look at how the internet has impacted our expectations for finales. (No TD spoilers.)

* Another Game of Thrones trailer is out. Also, the showrunners basically tied George R. R. Martin to a chair and made him tell them how the series ends.

* Here's an Oscar diary from the person we all wish we were - Jennifer Lawrence's BFF.

* I am extremely curious how they plan to make a Fantastic Four reboot that is "very grounded." It's the FANTASTIC FOUR. Isn't that kind of like calling the Guardians of the Galaxy characters "realistic"?

* Chris Hemsworth talked about Avengers: Age of Ultron. Plus, the first videos of production in Johannesburg have surfaced.

* I confess, I have completely lost track of which Captain America teasers I've linked to and which ones I haven't (clearly I am too dazzled by Chris Evans' face), so here have some more.

* If you really can't wait until Friday, you can now watch the first 8 minutes of Veronica Mars online.
next_to_normal: Steve Rogers, looking down; text: so much older than I can take (Steve older)
HI GUYS. I went to San Diego and didn't tell you. And I missed SO much TV, including the Oscars, which I've had to piece together from GIFs. (Funny story: we actually kind of considered having an Oscar watching party, but we're all idiots from the eastern and central time zones who forgot that it started at 5PM on the west coast, so we're out at a restaurant eating dinner and someone's like, "Uh, guys, the Oscars are kinda half over...?") Not that I saw any of the nominated films, except Gravity. You better believe that we were Travoltifying our names when we were bored at work, though. Luka Bailerey, at your service, btw.

We also forgot that Tuesday was Mardi Gras, and apparently San Diego REALLY loves Mardi Gras, so... that was interesting. Certain coworkers of mine now refer to me as "Princess."

ANYWAY. Let me know if I missed anything awesome on the interwebs. Now I'm back and have oodles and oodles of links that you've probably already seen. Separated into categories for easier organization.

Oscar stuff first:

* Lupita Nyong'o gave an amazing speech about beauty and skin color, and then continued her flawlessness with her acceptance speech. Plus, visual proof that she can (and does) rock any color dress.

* Anna Kendrick kept a diary of her Oscar weekend.

* An interview with an Oscar seat-filler reveals what goes on behind the cameras.

* Ellen interviewed the winners on her show. Here's Cate Blanchett and Lupita part 1 and part 2. The pizza delivery guy also went on Ellen to collect his tip.

* Tired of Frozen's Oscar-winning song, "Let It Go"? Then this is the parody for you.

TV stuff:

* Ground Floor has been renewed for a second season, while The Mindy Project has been renewed for a third.

* Community's Joel McHale and Jim Rash take on True Detective.

* FML. I thought I was done with HIMYM, but now Krysta Rodriguez is starring in the spin-off, which means I'm gonna have to watch it.

* Julia Stiles has a new legal drama coming to TNT.

* John Oliver's new HBO show, Last Week Tonight, has a trailer.

* Emmy Rossum talks about season 4 of Shameless, which has been fantastic.

Marvel stuff:

* I'm all for Chris Evans pursuing more directing gigs, but I hope he finds projects he can also star in, because otherwise I'd miss him as an actor.

* Speaking of, OMG this Captain America: The Winter Soldier clip! My bb! \o/ Plus, here's two new ads with new footage, and some speculation about the future of S.H.I.E.L.D. (and therefore Agents of...) in the MCU.

* Scarlett Johansson is pregnant, which will almost certainly impact filming for Avengers: Age of Ultron.

* Other Age of Ultron news: Marvel is locking in Thomas Kretschmann, who will appear as Baron von Strucker in AoU, in case they want to use him again, and adding Korean actress Kim Soo Hyun to the cast, in a yet to be announced supporting role.

* Not really a link, but I finally saw Thor: The Dark World. I don't have much to say about it because, other than Thor and Loki being adorably brotherly, I don't really have ~feels? Thor is probably the least interesting Avenger to me, Thor/Jane does nothing for me, and I'm mostly in it for the supporting characters, so as long as there's enough laughs, I don't mind that the plot's a bit of a mess. But yay for Zachary Levi joining the MCU!

* Marvel is airing a one-hour special on ABC about... themselves, basically. It's a one-hour commercial for their TV show and the 3 new movies coming out in the next year and a half. Which I will watch because I am a sucker for new footage.

Movie, musical, and movie musical stuff:

* Veronica Mars has been added to the Kindle Worlds legal fanfiction list. Plus, lots of photos from the movie (one week, you guys!). You can actually watch the first two minutes of the movie, but before you get excited, it's basically a "previously on" summary of the TV series.

* Steven Spielberg wants to remake West Side Story. I know people get tetchy about remaking classics, but maybe this time they'll cast lead actors who can actually sing?

* Speaking of movie musical remakes, Quvenzhane Wallis is freakin' adorable in the trailer for the new Annie.

* Into the Woods is getting an off-Broadway revival. Not sure how I feel about this "stripped-down" version.


Feb. 26th, 2014 09:50 pm
next_to_normal: Philip in disguise, wearing a hat and glasses (Philip (Americans))
* The new Captain America: The Winter Soldier TV spot has generated speculation that a certain someone is going to die. Also, Chris Evans was the Grand Marshal at the Daytona 500 this weekend. (What a dork.)

* The four Marvel Netflix series will be filmed in New York.

* Drew Pearce talks about the Mandarin short, All Hail the King.

* In non-MCU Marvel movies, I'm not sure we really need this much Spider-Man in our lives?

* Dear God, NBC is really scraping the bottom of the barrel by bringing back Heroes, of all things. Okay, sound off: how many canceled NBC series can YOU think of that you'd rather see return than Heroes?

* Michelle Monaghan talks about True Detective and its female characters. It would be so awesome if next season had two female leads.

* Doctor Who is injecting a little diversity into its cast with a new companion.

* Jeremy Jordan, Anna Kendrick, and Richard LaGravenese talk about adapting The Last Five Years as a film.

* Peter Dinklage already has a post-Game of Thrones job in the works on a new HBO series.

* I would so totally be on board for a Farscape spin-off/sequel TV movie.

* Ordinarily I would have no interest in a Godzilla movie, but... Bryan Cranston, yo.

* Matthew Rhys talks about the new season of The Americans, starting TONIGHT! Plus, an interview with the show's creators.

* With The LEGO Movie proclaiming "Everything is Awesome," now is a good time for a cautionary tale. If you don't talk to your children about LEGO, who will?

* Adam Driver is not who I would've expected for a Star Wars villain, but okay.

* I haven't watched it, because I'd rather see it in context, but you can watch Hannibal's opening scene from the season 2 premiere if you want.
next_to_normal: (VM kiss)
Have a linkspam:

* Rumors are swirling about a Black Widow solo film. I am not holding my breath.

* Also, speculation about the Captain America: The Winter Soldier post-credits sequence.

* We actually get to hear Bradley Cooper in this clip of Rocket Raccoon.

* I like the idea of Mads Mikkelsen as Doctor Strange far more than Johnny Depp. Which means it probably won't happen.

* The cast of the Fantastic Four reboot was announced and, predictably, caused racist outrage over Michael B. Jordan playing Johnny Storm. (From that last link: "because getting turned into living fire by cosmic rays is an everyday thing, but adoption is weird.")

* True Detective creator Nic Pizzolatto talks about last week's episode, plus the literary references fueling all those crazy philosophical ramblings.

* On the set of the Veronica Mars movie, plus an interview with creator Rob Thomas.

next_to_normal: Philip leaning over Elizabeth's shoulder (Americans)
* Ellen Page came out last week, and you should watch her speech because it's amazing.

* I really liked the Transparent pilot from Amazon, and I hope it gets made into a series. Here's an interview with the creator as well as a conversation with the cast.

* Orange is the New Black has a season 2 premiere date and a teaser.

* I definitely need a big red "Get it the f*** together" button in my life.

* You can watch a new clip of Ben Kingsley's Mandarin short, All Hail the King.

* LOL at the Internet panic over an action figure possibly spoiling Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

* I really hope that Guardians of the Galaxy is as cracktastic as we're all expecting it to be.

* It would be totally unfair if President Obama gets advance episodes of Game of Thrones. (Then again, he's a busy guy. I guess he doesn't have time to read the books?)

* Karen Gillan has landed the lead role in an ABC comedy pilot.

* Shameless - which is having a fantastic season - has been renewed for a fifth.

* Alfonso Cuaron talks about Gravity and his other films.

* Zachary Levi talks about his Comic-Con-adjacent Nerd HQ.

* A Scrubs musical is coming to Broadway, but without any of the Scrubs cast and not based on the Scrubs musical episode.

* Here's a sneak peek at season 2 of The Americans.
next_to_normal: (Coach and Mrs Coach)
Wow, I totally flaked on Galentine's Day this year, didn't I? Er... have some links to make up for it?

* Alyson Hannigan has lined up a new pilot for after HIMYM ends. Meanwhile, the Mother, Cristin Milioti, has booked her own pilot.

* Both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have been renewed for another season.

* Anna Kendrick talks about filming The Last Five Years.

* Joel McHale is hosting this year's "Nerd Prom," aka the White House Correspondents' Dinner.

* The full Parenthood/Friday Night Lights crossover webisode is now up.

* Here's another Hannibal promo.

* Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are adorable together for charity.
