WWE’S Royal Rumble Preview 2017

(PCM) WWE will be returning to Texas to host the 2017 Royal Rumble. The event takes place on January 29th at San Antonio’s Alamodome. The last time WWE hosted the Royal Rumble was way back in 1997. This year’s event is gearing up to be memorable, with many big names returning to the squared circle to get their rumble on.

The Royal Rumble first premiered in 1988 and was televised on the USA Network. The Rumble was the idea of WWE Hall of Famer Pat Patterson, and has become a staple of WWE’S programming. The event also marks the beginning of the WrestleMania season. The winner of the Royal Rumble which features 30 Superstars, gets a title shot at WrestleMania which some to refer to as the showcase of the immortals. WrestleMania by far is WWE’S biggest event of the year. So, it’s not rocket science that all the wrestlers in the Royal Rumble will do whatever it takes to throw their opponent over the top rope, and get their shot at the title.

Thirty Superstars, including a returning Bill Goldberg, Brock Lesnar, and Braun Strowman have been announced thus far. Hopefully Goldberg and Lesnar have more time in the ring than their lackluster match at Survivor Series 2016. The match only lasted one minute and twenty- four seconds, and saw Goldberg pin Lesnar after two spears and a jackhammer.

Other matches announced so far:

Raw Women’s Championship Match: Charlotte Flair Vs Bailey

WWE Universal Championship Kevin Owens Vs Roman Reigns (Chris Jericho will be suspended in a shark cage above the ring)

WWE Champion AJ Styles Vs John Cena

This year’s Rumble will the 30th in the Royal Rumble chronology. The show will feature Superstars from both the Raw and SmackDown brands. Tune into the WWE Network and check out the show.

Actress Debbie Reynolds Dead At Age 84

(PCM) Just mere days after the tragic passing of her daughter Carrie Fisher we have learned that actress Debbie Reynolds has sadly passed away at the age of 84. Reynolds cause of death is the result of a stroke that she suffered while visiting with her son Todd Fisher to make funeral plans for Carrie. Reports state that paramedics were called to Todd Fisher’s home this afternoon and Reynolds was rushed to the hospital shortly after 1:00pm where she passed away due to a massive stroke.

Reynolds is most famous for her role in the 1952 musical “Singin’ In The Rain” and went on to play other iconic roles in “Charlotte’s Web” as the voice of Charlotte the spider and she also earned an Oscar nomination for her role in the 1964 film “Unsinkable Molly Brown” and most recently won Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award at the 2016 Academy Awards.  She also starred in her very own TV series “The Debbie Reynolds Show” which ran for 1969 to 1970.

Her relationship with her daughter Carrie was the subject of Carrie’s semi-autobiographical book “Postcards From The Edge” which ended up later being adapted to a film which starred Shirley MacLaine and Meryl Streep.  She famously divorced her husband Eddie Fisher back in 1959 after discovering that he had an affair with actress Elizabeth Taylor. Reynolds remarried again in 1960 and 1984.

She is survived by her son Todd, who reports to TMZ.com that “She’s with Carrie”. Our sincere condolences go out to Debbie Reynolds’ family and loved ones during this incredibly difficult time. 2016 just couldn’t let go without taking another legend and it almost sounds as if Reynolds could have possibly died of a broken heart, given the tragic passing of her daughter just two days prior.  TMZ.com is also reporting that Reynolds last words were “I want to be with Carrie”.

It Wouldn’t Be Christmas Without Doctor Who! Exclusive Interview With The Great Peter Capaldi And Writer/Producer Steven Moffat

(PCM) It just wouldn’t be Christmastime without a little bit of Dr. Who to spice up the season. Fans have been on the edge of their seats waiting for this year’s Dr. Who Christmas Special to air, as it has been nearly a year since we have seen our favorite alien time traveler gracing our screens. The highly anticipated Dr. Who Christmas episode will be titled “The Return Of Doctor Mysterio and will premiere on Sunday, December 25, 9/8c on BBC AMERICA.

This Christmas episode sees the Doctor join forces with a masked Superhero for an epic New York adventure. With brain-swapping aliens poised to attack, the Doctor and Nardole link up with an investigative reporter and a mysterious figure known only as The Ghost. Can the Doctor save Manhattan? And what will be revealed when we see behind the mask?

Peter Capaldi stars as the Doctor, Matt Lucas (Bridesmaids, Little Britain) as Nardole, Justin Chatwin (Orphan Black, Shameless) as Grant and Charity Wakefield (Wolf Hall, The Player) as an investigative journalist.

The special is written by Steven Moffat, executive produced by Brian Minchin, produced by Peter Bennett and directed by Ed Bazalgette (Poldark). It was shot in Cardiff at BBC Wales Roath Lock Studios.

In the days leading up to the new Christmas Special, BBCA will air a Doctor Who Takeover Marathon. The new season of Doctor Who will premiere alongside the Doctor Who spin-off Class in Spring 2017 on BBC AMERICA.

BBCA’s robust slate of originals includes: Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency airing now on Saturdays and returning with season two in 2017, BBC Music Awards on December 14th, Planet Earth II on January 28th, plus the final season of Orphan Black and the recently greenlit series from Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Killing Eve.

We were incredibly honored to catch up with the amazing Doctor Who, himself, actor  Peter Capaldi and writer and producer Steven Moffat while out at New York Comic Con back in October and absolutely can’t wait to share with you some of his thoughts on the series, the upcoming Christmas special and so much more!

When we last saw the Doctor he was struggling with his non-memories of Clara and it was quite an interesting way to end the season. When speaking about where the new season will pick up Capaldi reveals, “The Doctor, being that he is not a human being, moves on, but that’s not to say there’re aren’t ripples when he remembers something, such as a sentence or something, but he moves on because there’s a big universe out there and he gets to explore it all. He has a new companion who is new to the whole Doctor Who world and I think he finds that quite exciting and invigorating because he gets to explain it all again in a way that he hasn’t quite done before.  It’s different than with specifically with Jenna/Clara because she was such an  intrinsic part of the Doctor’s timeline and Bill isn’t, she comes from this world, the real world, and that’s a bit of an exciting place to be.”

We know that the character of Lucas will be heavily featured in the upcoming Christmas special, however the Doctor’s new companion Bill will not be gracing our screens until the Series 10 premiere in 2017.

Writer and producer Steven Moffat adds, “We don’t completely ignore what happened with Clara through, that is referenced. It’s a hard one to reference because you don’t know anything about it, but just know it’s in there.”

When speaking about the pop culture phenomenon that is Doctor Who, Moffat comments, “From the point of view of someone who was a fan of the old show, as I grew up devoted to that old show, and I endured those 16 unreasonable savage years when it wasn’t on and then to see it come back … it’s such a strange thing … that show that I loved came back and was the biggest thing on television and knowing that I wrote for it and now I’m running it just seems like a ridiculous thing to have happened. I’m too much inside that to notice, but I’ll be curious once I’ve left and the Doctor will carry on as another show that I’m no longer involved with and then it will finally have come back for me properly as somebody else’s TV show not the one I worked on.”

Capaldi adds, “It is extraordinary that you don’t realize .. and like Stephen I loved the show growing up as well … but when you get to be Doctor , which is not a phrase I ever thought I would say. It’s a world-wide phenomena. To me, it’s always felt like a very intimate and personal thing, so to suddenly find yourself in South Korea and people are crazy about you or New Zealand or Latin America where fans absolutely adore it, it’s an truly amazing experience. Obviously the rebirth of the show is what has stimulated the great success that we have at the moment, but if you go to Mexico they’ve had it there since 1963 and it’s extraordinary to discover that there’s something in the show that speaks to people all over the world. They always ask me what it is and I don’t know what it is, so I end up asking them.

The most common answer I get is escapism. It’s a very clear escapism and the Tardis, unlike other sci-fi type genre shows, it can just show up in the mall or in your backyard  or in a forest and you can step into it and it will take you anywhere in time and space. It’s definitely a fantasy for some people.”

Doctor Who is a series that can flawless blend together both elements of science fiction with very human and emotional moments as well. Capaldi tells us, “I think it’s interesting because the science fiction madness aspects of the show, we’re quite exuberant, where he’s the “mad” Doctor and he’s really quite “mad”, but we always take the emotional side of it really seriously, so we are deadly serious about the emotions. It does that thing a little bit with the monsters and the mayhem and then the melodrama and they act as sort of metaphors for how you feel about things.  You can make a story about something because it has an emotional impact.

If you look at old science fiction, before science fiction was mainstream, it was a cold and unemotional world, wasn’t it? Lots of men in recently pressed uniforms barking orders to each other, not that, that isn’t great, but the emotion is what we take terribly seriously in Doctor Who and sometimes maybe we get the physics wrong, but that’s the idea”.

We went on to discuss all of the various Doctor Who props and cosplay that occurs at Comic Con and Capaldi says, “It’s great fun to get into contact with the people who love the show. They watch it and it’s part of their lives. Most of the experiences I’ve had with people who are in cosplay is that they are all smart, clever, funny, and they don’t take it too seriously. They have a great way of affection for the show and that’s lovely to be around.”

Talking about the Doctor’s relationship with Bill and what it has been like to watch that play out Capaldi reveals, “It’s great fun because in a way because the show’s been a way for 53 years there are some things that we’ve all gotten used to, which are extraordinary things and because of Bill they are extraordinary once more. The whole concept of having a time machine that’s bigger on the inside than it is on the outside and the whole concept of being able to move not just through time, but through space and the whole concept of being able to leave the real world behind and to go into this battle-scarred weird crazy cosmos is new again.”

Also, we just had to know what it’s like having the screwdriver back to which Capaldi replied, “Well, I love them them both, but the screwdriver is really great. People really love the screwdriver, but I always don’t quite know where to put it because it’s so heavy and it tears all the lining in your jacket. They’ve actually just sewn me a new sonic screwdriver, and they should really market this .. it’s like a toolkit and it acts like a holster of sorts.  It’s a sonic holster! (laughs)

New Reality Series Could Potentially Allow Rape And Murder In The Siberian Wilderness

(PCM) The internet is in a frenzy over the news about a new Russian reality series where contestants must survive in the -40F Siberian wilderness for nine months for a grand prize amount of $1.6 million dollars.

The series will be called “Game 2: Winter” and from its’ description sounds like the “Hunger Games” come to life. There is the fact that the contestants could potentially be raped, mauled or even killed by the wild animals in the region such as bears, tigers or wolves. They could also be attacked by their fellow contestants who are in it to win it and get their hands on the million dollar prize.

In fact, they are even advertising the series saying that each contestant gives their consent prior to signing up for the show that they could be maimed, or even killed. The ad for the series read’s “2000 cameras, 900 hectares and 30 lives. Everything is allowed. Fighting, alcohol, murder, rape, smoking, anything.” Scary stuff! And you just know that everyone will be tuning in as the series will be streaming online 24 hours seven days a week.

Despite the phrasing of the advertisement for the show, rest assured that murder is still very much illegal in Russia. If a crime is caught taking place on camera by one of the contestants than the perpetrator will be arrested and taken into police custody. No guns will be allowed, however contestants will be able to carry knives for their protection.

The 2,000 cameras put in place will film all of the action and each contestant will be equipped with their own body camera to capture the madness. Each contestant must be “mentally sane” and over the age of 18 to participate in the series.

Rumor has it that the series is currently in production now and will air sometime around July of 2017 and run through February of 2018. It will be able to streamed all over the world.

Would you tune into something like this?  Has reality television finally gone to far?

Get Ready For Season Two Of Amazon’s ‘Man In The High Castle’! Exclusive Interviews

(PCM) The excitement is brewing for the upcoming season of Amazon’s hit series “Man In The High Castle” which will begin streaming its’ second season on December 16th. Season one left us with quite a few cliffhangers and issues that are not yet resolved.

Catching up with the cast and crew at New York Comic Con we learned that each of the characters going into season two are going to be placed at a cross-roads of sorts, as they will all be facing consequences for their actions that took place during season one. It was incredibly hard for them to give us too much information about the upcoming season, as they have advanced so far along in a short period of time. The producers tell us that to speak about certain character relationships going into season two would reveal other events that are set to take place. Producer David Zucker says, “It’s exciting to talk about, but even more exciting for everyone to see!”

The lovely Alexa Davalos spoke to us about the incredible family dynamic that the cast and crew has with one another. She says, “We have a special dynamic, all of us! It’s very special. I can call these people at 3am because it’s literally family.” DJ Qualls adds, “Since filming takes place in Vancouver and none of us actually are from there, it can be really hard to start over in a new place. I’m so lucky to have these fools I love so dearly on my show.

Davalos says, “I truly feel I was meant to do this show and meet this wonderful people because it has truly changed my life!”

When speaking about some of the darker themes of the series and how they tackle them being so close as a cast. Davalos reveals, “It’s not even really a thought. The relationship that exists outside of a scene is different. Qualls says, “You don’t even have to think about it because it’s what you do.” Davalos adds, “The characters have relationships the same way that we have relationships, so when you step foot on that set you are immediately in that situation.” Qualls concludes, “It’s just a level of trust with one another.”

We asked Qualls how he felt about the fan reaction to “Man In The High Castle” and the love it has been receiving across the board via conventions, awards, social media and more. He said “When we were shooting the pilot in Seattle. It was interesting because I went for a fitting my first day on the set and we were shooting a scene where a building had a huge swastika banner on it and a bunch of people were in Nazi uniforms with the arm band on and even though there were a bunch of extras in period costumes and driving period cars I still noticed a visceral reaction.

It was very hardcore and I thought to myself ‘Is that going to be the reaction to the show?’ but then when you start doing it long term you tend to forget just how jarring it is because you become accustomed to it and then you realize when people start writing about it. People know what we are trying to achieve and it’s not a pro-Nazi or pro-Fascism thing, but it enables people to understand how that happens.

There are certain aspects about that, that are attractive otherwise they would never become things. The veneer or facade of what the Right represents is like if you just do these things then everything will be easy. You will be taken care of and you will be happy. All the propaganda showed happy Nazi children dancing in a field with Aryan parents who were looking over proudly, everyone was well fed. The message of the show is, watch out, this could happen here and also, how did that happen?”

Davalos adds, “The show has a certainly duality. It looks like Pleasantville from the outside, but when you actually get in to it, it’s quite an ugly thing. People are responding wonderfully to the characters and what they are going through.” Qualls adds, “This show is very cerebral and I find now that I am getting approached and asked just as many questions about this show as I am other projects that are a bit more commercial such as “Suppernatural and “Z-Nation” and it’s really gratifying. It’s great that people get it … or they don’t get it and they want to know more!”

Rufus Sewell comments, “There’s nothing else like this series. I think there’s a strange mixture of period and then there’s period that didn’t happen. It’s not science fiction , but it’s something else and I think they’ve been quite judicious about how quickly they spread out to other worlds because they don’t want to dilute the currency of the world we’ve set up. It’s kind of like a period drama, but the period has shifted into one that we didn’t know.

I think, also, the fact that they’re examining very deeply what human beings are like and that’s what Philip K. Dick ultimately wrote about. He wrote about people normalizing the most horrific surroundings and they normalize doing the most horrific things. That is true of our world and it’s true of this world.

It’s worse in so many ways, but what is similar is the national holidays are based on mass genocides as they are in a lot of countries. It’s basically like flowers on the funeral pyre. Where this world intersects is when it becomes uncomfortable, but fascinating.  The potential is limitless as long as we keep on digging down with the characters.”

When touching on how relevant the story is to our current political climate Davalos comments, “In a terrifying way, really. The scary part is that it’s 2016 and we’re still living the same bullsh*t. fascism was really and terrifying when the book was written and the fact that we are still facing these issues in this day and age is so mind-blowing.”

Qualls adds, “The majority of our country is well-fed and the lights come on. We have strong internet connections, so we don’t really question a lot and one of the things about fascism is that your media is controlled for you. Whatever you are seeing is given to you ala carte by someone else. It’s how far it’s spun and the slant of it is all picked for you”.

Rufus Swell comments, “Where this world intersects with the world we know is where it becomes very, very interesting. It’s not for me to say where it does intersect and where it doesn’t but I can say a mask tells you more than face. My responsiblity in playing a character who is a Nazi is to humanize as much as possible. Morally I think it’s more responsible to show to the best of your ability that the Nazis were human beings. I’m not expressing sympathy for the Nazi’s but if there’s any chance we can learn anything from everything that happens is we have to stop monsterizing things.”

As she continues to delve into her character, Davalos reveals, “Making this show is such an incredible feat. It really is blood sweat and tears and every single day, even when you have a day off, you are working. It’s a test on your patience and your stamina, your willpower and your ability to believe in yourself and to trust your instincts because as actors, that’s all we really have. You can be technically trained, but we really end up cutting open our bellies and spilling our intestines all over the floor. That’s what we do and it’s been an interesting lesson.”

Talking further about overall character development, Sewell says that he sees quite a bit of development with this character, but unfortunately can’t reveal a lot of details. He says, “I feel that most of the developments were set up by the end of the last season. Smith has been a good boy, according to his Nazi bosses and he’s pretty high up in the chain anyway.

That ascendancy and new found responsibility was given to him personally by Hitler in terms of finding this ‘Man In The High Castle’  and he has hitched his wagon to something that he believes will protect his family. Now that thing he hitched his wagon to may be about to devour the thing he sought to protect. Those two journeys conflict. They also travel and intensify through the course of the new season.” Sewell continues, “I love the conflict of this character and how he isn’t just one thing.”

Qualls went on to explain that a series like “Man In The High Castle” which was in development for nine years is a true labor of love. The cast is there to support on another and have each other’s back in a variety of situations. He tells us about a time that one of his scenes got changed around and he was very upset about it.

He found Davalos while she was filming an intense scene on the end of a pier and when she saw he was upset she stopped the scene immediately and hopped on the phone with one of the producers in Paris, where it was the middle of the night, to help out and lo and behold, Qualls got his scene back. Qualls reveals that Davalos is on the top of the cast call-sheet and is the true glue of the series.

Fans are anxiously awaiting the season two premiere and when speaking about what they hope fans will take away from the new season Davalos comments, “An intense hunger for a third season. It’s an ever-changing and ever-growing show. This season is very different from last season in a lot of ways. We are just continuing to build and it’s crazy because the whole show thus far takes place in the time frame of about a month for both seasons. What they survive in such a short time period is just monumental and we are really only in the beginning.”

Qualls comments, “Even though season two hasn’t begun yet and we don’t know if we are picked up yet for a third season, the writers are already hard a work fleshing out a season three. It is an all year long operation. ”
