The33_poster(PCM) Alcon Entertainment and Phoenix Pictures released the first trailer for The 33, director Patricia Riggen’s drama based on the incredible true story of the 33 mine workers who were trapped 200 stories below the ground for more than two months in 2010 after an explosion in their Chilean mine cut them off from the outside world.

Relying on the performances of Antonia Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, and the film’s other leads to engage audiences in the exhaustively-covered and globally-publicized accident, the first trailer for The 33 captures the drama, suspense, and international fervor that took over the world in the 69 days those 33 miners were trapped.

Starring Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Academy Award winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient), James Brolin, and Lou Diamond Phillips, Bob Gunton, and Gabriel Byrne, The 33 is story of resilience, personal transformation and triumph of the human spirit, the film takes us to the Earth’s darkest depths, revealing the psyches of the men trapped in the mine, and depicting the courage of both the miners and their families who refused to give up.

In 2010, the eyes of the world turned to Chile, where 33 miners had been buried alive by the catastrophic explosion and collapse of a 100-year-old gold and copper mine. Over the next 69 days, an international team worked night and day in a desperate attempt to rescue the trapped men as their families and friends, as well as millions of people globally, waited and watched anxiously for any sign of hope. But 200 stories beneath the surface, in the suffocating heat and with tensions rising, provisions—and time—were quickly running out.

Based on the gripping true story of survival—and filmed with the cooperation of the miners, their families and their rescuers—The 33 reveals the never-before-seen actual events that unfolded, above and below ground, which became nothing less than a worldwide phenomenon.

Patricia Riggen directed The 33 from a screenplay by Mikko Alanne, Oscar nominee Craig Borten (Dallas Buyers Club) and Michael Thomas, based on the screen story by Jose Rivera and the book Deep Down Dark by Hector Tobar. The film was produced by Oscar nominee Mike Medavoy (Black Swan), Robert Katz and Edward McGurn.

The 33 is slated to open on November 13, 2015 in theaters nationwide.

The hilarious Red Band trailer introduces Ethan (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), Isaac (Seth Rogen) and Chris (Anthony Mackie), best friends since childhood who have been celebrating Christmas Eve with each other for the past 14 years since the death of Ethan’s parents.

With Chris’s fame ever-increasing and Isaac expecting a baby, the three best friends decide to celebrate Christmas Eve together for the last time, calling an end to their annual tradition and making a commitment to go big for their last hurrah by setting out to find the Nutcracka Ball, described as “the Holy Grail of Christmas parties.”

The night quickly becomes much more than the friends could’ve planned on, especially after Isaac’s mix of shrooms and cocaine doesn’t go as well as planned.

Directed by Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies, 50/50), The Night Before comes from the screenplay by Levine, Evan Goldberg (This is the End, The Interview), Kyle Hunter (Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, Sausage Party), and Ariel Shaffir (Comedy Central Roast of James Franco, Sausage Party), and stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen, Anthony Mackie, Lizzy Caplan, Jillian Bell, Michael Shannon, and Mindy Kaling.

(PCM) We think this sounds pretty bizarre as well, however UK-based travel company Oliver’s Travels has revealed plans to begin offering up a personal sand castle butler that can be hired for beach vacations.

The price to hire a sand castle butler runs $465 for a half day and $775 for a full day and they will be available for hire for vacations in the U.K., Spain,Italy,France and Greece. If you were curious about just what the job of a sand castle butler entails it is basically assisting children with brainstorming and building the most amazing sand castles imaginable.

The butler will draw up blueprints for the creation and then work with or without the children’s participation to bring the vision to a reality. The sand castle butler must also inspect the beach of choice to determine and reserve the best quality sand that is away from other beach goers and of course the tide.

In a statement about the job position, Oliver’s Travels co-founder Oliver Bell says “Families spend a lot of quality time together building sandcastles on their holidays, but sometimes no matter how hard you try they just look like big mounds of sand. Now you can realize your sandy dreams with a butler who can help build anything your imagination can conjure up. We’re expecting the most popular choices this year to be the Minions, dinosaurs and Peppa Pig.”

QueenofEarth_2(PCM) Indie films about remote vacation spots tucked away from the distractions of city life tend to explore the dark side of human nature, and if the trailer for IFC Films’ Queen of Earth is any indication, writer-director Alex Ross Perry’s latest drama does not deviate from the trend.

The first U.S. trailer for Queen of Earth, released this past weekend, is edited in the style of a 1970’s horror trailer, deep, gravelly-voiced serious-sounding narrator included.

The trailer introduces us to Catherine, played by Elisabeth Moss as we’ve “never seen her before,” and her best friend Virginia (Katherine Waterston), as the two escape the city for a relaxing weekend in a cabin in the forest. The trailer quickly dissolves into what looks like a nightmare of a vacation as Catherine is overcome either by her own mental anguish and paranoia or by the people around her.

The second of writer-director Alex Ross Perry’s (The Color Wheel, Listen Up, Philip) films to star Elisabeth Moss, Queen of Earth is already sporting a very solid rating of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and has been making waves in the film festival circuit.

Calum Marsh of the Village Voice praised Queen of Earth in his review, writing: “This is vigorous, frightening, electrifying stuff. Even minor Perry outclasses most contemporary majors.”

Watch the first U.S. trailer for Queen of Earth below, after the official synopsis.

Catherine (Elisabeth Moss) has entered a particularly dark period in her life: her father, a famous artist whose affairs she managed, has recently died, and on the heels of his death she’s dumped by her boyfriend James (Kentucker Audley). Looking to recuperate, Catherine heads out to her best friend Virginia’s (Katherine Waterston) lake house for some much needed relaxation.

However, once Catherine arrives relaxation proves impossible to find, as she is overcome with memories of time spent at the same house with James the year before. As Catherine reaches out to Virginia with attempts at connection, Virginia begins spending increasing amounts of time with a local love interest, Rich (Patrick Fugit), and fissures in the relationship between the two women begin to appear, sending Catherine into a downward spiral of delusion and madness.

A bracing, eerie look at the deep bonds of friendship and the horrific effects of such bonds being frayed, Queen of Earth is a thrilling examination of a deeply complex relationship between two miserable women.

Queen of Earth opens in theaters nationwide August 26, 2015.

ATM(PCM) Know that horrible feeling you get right when you shut your door and realize you’ve locked yourself out? That dawning realization that your own inattentiveness has landed you in a very unenviable position?

A couple of ATM workers came to know that feeling all too well when they unintentionally left a bag containing $141,000 in cash outside while making ATM runs on Monday in Mahwah, New Jersey.

The two workers were delivering cash to the ATMs on their route Monday morning when, while packing the car up for the next stop, one of the workers absentmindedly left the bag with the $141,000 on the lawn.

Security footage of the incident released by the Mahwah PD shows the bag of cash sitting on the ground beside the car while one of the workers packs the trunk before hopping in the backseat, leaving the valuable bag behind.

After a time cut and around 11:15 am, the footage shows a white van pull up alongside the bag while a man in a white t-shirt jumps out, casually grabs the bag, and hops back into the van as it pulls away. The moment when local authorities arrived and began investigating the theft was also caught on the security footage.

According to ABC News, it only took 15 minutes for the workers to realize their mistake and turn around, at which point the bag was already gone. The white van supposedly visited an auto repair shop next, where the thieves were allegedly attempting to either sell or pilfer used tires. 

Police say that the ATM workers are cooperating with the investigation and the theft is not considered an inside job as this time. The suspect has been described as a “dark skinned male wearing a tee-shirt and long white athletic shorts with some type of dark stripe down the thigh area.”

Anyone with any possible leads of information on this crime are asked to contact Mahwah Detective Michael Grassi or Eric Larsen at 201-529-1000 extension 216 or 217.

(PCM) Looking quite good for his age, lovable cartoon rabbit Bug Bunny turned 75 years old this week. Bugs Bunny made his first on-screen appearance in the 1940 Merry Melodies cartoon aptly titled “A Wild Hare” opposite, who else, but Elmer Fudd of course!

The short 8-minute cartoon also marks the first time that Bugs Bunny locked lips with an adversary, faked his own death, and uttered the classic catch phrase ‘What’s up, doc?’.  “A Wild Hare” received an Oscar nomination for Best Original Short, but ended up losing out to “The Milky Way”.

You can watch a full version of the classic cartoon below:

It was also said that the line to get into the actual restaurant to order was just as bad, as the line stretched all the way out the door.

All of the food served in Amy’s Restaurant is sustainably grown and employees are all paid a fair living wage with benefits. Given the success of the first restaurant the company now plans to open up additional locations throughout the Bay Area.

(PCM) Ever since the news was revealed that a “Heroes” reboot was in the works we have been on the edge of our seats with anticipation for the upcoming new series “Heroes Reborn” set to premiere on NBC September 24. As promised NBC has also unveiled a new prequel web series called “Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters” to give viewers some insight into the backstory for one of the main characters in the upcoming new series.

You can view the first episode of “Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters” on YouTube and the additional five episodes can be streamed via the Heroes Reborn app.

 

The official synopsis for “Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters” states:

The digital prequel HEROES REBORN: DARK MATTERS bridges the gap between the original series and HEROES REBORN, reintroducing viewers to the HEROES universe and unveiling a whole new generation of Heroes.

It’s been five years since the public became aware of the existence of evolved humans or “EVOs” who possess incredible, supernatural abilities. In that time, the public has grown to either fear or revere EVOs. An online community forms around the rallying cry of the anonymous Hero_Truther, who seeks to humanize EVOs in the wake of lies, slander and fearmongering.

Among those posting their personal stories is Phoebe Frady (Aislinn Paul), who is encouraged to document her origin story by her brother, Quentin (Henry Zebrowski). But as Phoebe struggles to control her power, she attracts unwanted attention from a mysterious new company.

The digital prequel is definitely a way to keep fans entertained and informed before the official “Heroes Reborn” premiere this fall!  You can view the official trailer for “Heroes Reborn” below:

There will also be two video games released in connection with the upcoming series titled HEROES REBORN: Gemini (console/PC) and HEROES REBORN: Enigma (smartphone/tablet). The trailer, which premiered at San Diego Comic Con gives a glimpse into the dark world of the “HEROES” universe as well as the incredible powers fans and players can expect to wield in the game.

(PCM) Bobbi Kristina Brown, the 22 year-old daughter of late singer/actress Whitney Houston and singer Bobby Brown, passed away on Sunday, July 26th, after being in a medically induced coma for the past six months.

The tragic news broke earlier today when the Houston family announced Brown’s passing on the official Whitney Houston Facebook page, posting a picture of Bobbi as a child with her mother and the message: “It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks everyone for their loving thoughts and prayers. As Bobbi Kristina would say: “The wind is behind me and the sun is in my face.””

It is hard to say goodbye. On Sunday, July 26, Bobbi Kristina Brown made her transition peacefully. The family thanks…

Posted by Whitney Houston on Sunday, July 26, 2015

Bobbi Kristina Brown was placed into a medically induced coma after being found unresponsive in the bathtub of her Atlanta home back in January of 2015, just a few days shy of the third anniversary of her mother’s death.

Rumors quickly swirled around the young singer/actress’s condition and the circumstances of the situation, throwing suspicion on her quasi-adopted older brother/boyfriend Nick Gordon. Despite a pending lawsuit from Bobbi Kristina Brown’s conservator and an investigation into the allegations in the suit, charges have yet to be filed against Gordon.

While in a coma, various conflicting stories of Bobbi Kristina’s health made their way to the media, creating confusion around the already unknown fate of the young Brown. On June 24, five months after being put in a medically induced coma, Bobbi Kristina Brown was moved into hospice care and taken off medication, with family members gathering to spend as much time as possible with Bobbi Kristina.

The Houston family released a statement to EW on Sunday, stating: “Bobbi Kristina Brown passed away July 26, 2015, surrounded by her family. She is finally at peace in the arms of God. We want to again thank everyone for their tremendous amount of love and support during these last few months.”

RIP Bobbi Kristina Brown.

Urination1

(PCM) The walls are fighting back in San Francisco, at least when it comes to public urination! The city has now installed new urine resistant walls that will actually repel urine back at the person that chose to urinate in public. 

There are now nine public walls in the city that have been painted with urine resistant paint that causes the urine to spray back splashing all over the culprits pants and shoes leading to quite an embarrassing scenario. Currently, the city of San Francisco spends about $14 million per year steam cleaning the waste off of the public walls and streets. They feel the new urine resistant walls are a perfect way to fight back and cut spending.

The walls are adorned with signs that read “Hold it! This wall is not a public restroom. Please respect San Francisco and relive yourself in an appropriate place.”  The sign does not mention anything about the walls being coated in urine resistant paint, so anyone that chooses to violate the sign will be in for quite a surprise.

It seems that pubic urination is quite a problem in the city of San Francisco as it has actually left some of the cities streets completely soaked in pee. Public urination was completely banned in the city back in 2002, but still continues to be an issues despite fines in upwards of $500 for violations.

Nothing like a surprise golden shower to make the public urinators in San Francisco clean up their act for good.

Spectre’s latest theatrical trailer was released yesterday, exciting fans for Sam Mendes‘ second directorial installment in the James Bond series of movies scheduled to be released on 26th October in the UK and 26th November in the US.

Two trailers have previously been released, showcasing mainly the plotline which heavily implies the association of old villain, Ernst Stavro Blofield. What is known is that a familiar face from Bond’s past will make themselves known, possibly a relation to the legendary fictional agent. Meanwhile, M fights to save the secret service from being shut down forever!

Speculation has been rife about which actor will be playing the signature bad guy but Christoph Waltz has been hotly tipped. And judging by what many saw yesterday that tip just may be the correct one!

2012’s Skyfall played a major part in setting up the direction in which the 007 universe will be heading in the future, especially its conclusion. With Judi Dench’s M being replaced by male counterpart Ralph Fiennes, a new Moneypenny and the old office set, Spectre is expected to contain a lot of the old elements from yesterday’s Bond films given the words of the director. More humour has been promised although no evidence has been shown of this as of yet. Dave Bautista’s Mr. Hinx will play Spectre’s henchman. It was briefly glimpsed that he is a brute force of nature but not in a dark way, perhaps adding to the comical element.

The new Aston Martin DB10 will  be one of the film’s main pieces along with resurrecting Blofeld. The sleek lines conceal some “explosive” special features that will assist Bond in his effort to bring down the deadly Spectre organisation. Little is still known about Monica Bellucci’s role. The same can be said for Lea Seydoux, but typically one, or all of them are possibly not all that they seem. Fiennes looks to have a sizeable role playing M, involved in his own crusade which looks likely to be an interesting subplot.

References to old Bond movies were spotted in the latest preview, including Live and Let Die, On Her Majestys Secret Service and The Man WIth The Golden Gun. But is this a tedious move? Fans will remember that 2002’s Die Another Day executed the references in too blunt a manner, devoid of any real imagination to make them smarter. Mendes tried his hand at achieving the same in 2012’s Skyfall and made it fun for fans to hunt them down. It also did not interfere with the narrative unlike in the sloppily made Die Another Day. But a third time?  One has to wonder why it is necessary. It all depends how events unfold.

But producers Michael Wilson and Barbara Broccoli had been pursuing Mendes ever since Skyfall’s record breaking success to direct a follow up, and there is surely a reason why other than money. The hype train will only roll faster as the month of releases approaches, but the odds that Spectre will disappoint are surely against!

Brooke-Hogan1

(PCM) Brooke Hogan, the 27-year old daughter of legendary WWE wrestler Hulk Hogan, has stepped up to defend her father who was recently accused of using several racial slurs in an interview that occurred several years ago while he was discussing her boyfriend at the time.

All references to Hulk Hogan have been removed from the WWE website amid the controversy, almost as if they have begun to erase his entire existence within the organization. All ties between him and the company have been severed. Brooke took to Facebook and posted a poem she had written under her real name Brooke Bollea titled “If You Knew My Father”.

You can read the full poem below:

~If You Knew My Father~
By Brooke Bollea
If you knew the dad I knew,
you’d know his tender heart.
He’d never want to hurt his fans,
or family from the start.
If you knew my father,
you would know how hard he fought…
and the way it brought a smile to people light, medium and dark.
We always fight a battle
that people never see,
and sometimes when you’re hurting, you don’t think logically.
Human isn’t perfect,
and perfect is not he,
but I can tell you one thing, it’s just not what it seems.
Cause If you knew the dad I knew,
you’d know he raised me well.
He taught me folks are so much more
than shades could ever tell.
And If you knew my father,
you would know he’s down to earth.
He may have slammed the giant,
but remembers life’s true worth.
If you knew my father,
if you just walked in his shoes…
then you would know that microscope that comes with yellow boots.
If you knew my father,
you would see your own in mine.
And if he was your father, you could never find divide.
Cause me- I bet your father
or someone that you love
Maybe regrets something
they wish they’d never done.
So if you know my father,
remember he’s a man,
and you would crave relief if people judged everything you did.
The lord says to forgive them,
don’t be the one to stone…
so please remember his strong arms when you were all alone.
The lives he’s changed, the friends he’s made,
the people he’s inspired…
It makes me sad to see my dad
defeated and so tired.
If you knew my father,
you would know just how he’s hurting…
For he loves every one of you, regardless of your story.
And if you met my father,
I know he’d give you love!
He’d lift you up, apologize and give you all a hug.
For those who think you know my father,
remember who you are.
We all can make mistakes and carry ugly scars.
Because I know my father,
I can promise this-
Just like you and I, things we don’t mean can sometimes slip.
We all continue learning.
This life can be so rough…
So if you know my father, please try not to be tough.
My father has a daughter,
and I have feelings too.
And if I knew your father, I would do the same for you.

The audio of Hulk Hogan’s alleged racist rant was part of an ongoing lawsuit between the wrestler and Gawker that was part of a leaked out sex tape. Hulk Hogan did issue a brief statement of his own in regards to the allegations saying “This is not who I am. I believe very strongly that every person in the world is important and should not be treated differently based on race, gender, orientation, religious beliefs or otherwise. I am disappointed with myself that I used language that is offensive and inconsistent with my own beliefs.”

(PCM) A petition calling for the removal of a controversial t-shirt with the word ‘Trophy’ emblazoned on the front from Target stores has been created and has already racked up nearly 15,000 supporters.

The petition claims that the t-shirt in question perpetuates rape culture and that the word ‘trophy’ when used to reference another human being is both objectifying and demeaning. A trophy is an obtainable thing and human beings should not be looked at as such. The petition goes on to say that they feel that Target, being such an influential company, should not be allowed to get away with such irresponsible behavior. They say, “The truth is that millions of women and young girls are taken as ‘trophies’ every year in war, sex trafficking, slavery and rape.”

The t-shirt is part of Target’s engagement and wedding collection and was not created to cause any type of offense. A company spokesperson said that they were created as a fun wink and that they have received an overwhelming positive response from their guests”. Other shirts in the collection have words on them such as “Bride” and “Mrs.”.  It appears that Target has no plans to remove the t-shirt in question anytime soon despite the number of signatures collected on the petition.

The trailer, titled “We March Together,” focuses on the 13 Districts in Panem uniting to rise up against the Capitol and take down President Snow. New footage takes up most of the new trailer’s two-and-a-half-minute run time, including a snippet of the infamous airdropping scene. Watch the new trailer below!

With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss Everdeen confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown.

Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off mission, using the unit from District 13 – and risking their lives – to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow increasingly obsessed with destroying her, the mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence from a screenplay Peter Craig and Danny Strong, based on the international best selling trilogy by Suzanne Collins. Lawrence, Craig, and Strong are reprising their roles from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, so the second part of Mockingjay should resemble its predecessor in tone and style.

Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone with Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland are all reprising their original roles from The Hunger Games while Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, Wes Chatham, Elden Henson and Evan Ross are joining the cast.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 opens in 3D/2D and IMAX 3D theaters nationwide starting November 20, 2015. Visit Facebook for more info!

ELDoctorow_Feat(PCM) The literature world lost another great writer in the form of American historical fiction author E.L. Doctorow on Tuesday in Manhattan.

The author’s son, Richard, told the New York Times that the 84 year-old passed due to complications from his lung cancer.

Born in the Bronx, Edgar Lawrence “E.L.” Doctorow began his career in the literature field with the publication of his first novel in 1960, a western fiction titled Welcome to Hard Times, that was inspired by his nine years spent reading countless scripts for westerns for a motion picture company.

After his time as a script reader, Doctorow entered the publishing world as a book editor, then as an editor-in-chief at The Dial Press. E.L. Doctorow left publishing to focus on his writing, becoming a Visiting Writer at the University of California, Irvine, where his writing career took off.

While at UCI, Doctorow published his semi-historical novel about the Cold War, The Book of Daniel (1971), which The Guardian praised as a masterpiece.

Other works of Doctorow’s include Ragtime (1975), which was adapted into a feature film (rated 90% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes) and named as one of the 100 best novels of the 20th Century by the Modern Library editorial board, World’s Fair (1985), which won the 1986 National Book Award, the 1989 National Book Critics Circle Award-winning Billy Bathgate (1989), and the 2005 National Book Critics Circle Award-winning novel, The March (2005).

For his accomplished career, E.L. Doctorow was inducted into the New York Writers Hall of Fame and was awarded the PEN/Saul Bellow Award for Achievement in American Fiction in 2012, earned the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from the National Book Foundation and the American Academy of Arts and Letters Gold Medal for Fiction in 2013, and was awarded with the Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction in 2014.

RIP Edgar Lawrence “E.L.” Doctorow.

A cryptic message from the past sends James Bond on a rogue mission to Mexico City and eventually Rome, where he meets Lucia Sciarra (Monica Bellucci), the beautiful and forbidden widow of an infamous criminal. Bond infiltrates a secret meeting and uncovers the existence of the sinister organisation known as SPECTRE.

Meanwhile back in London, Max Denbigh (Andrew Scott), the new head of the Centre for National Security, questions Bond’s actions and challenges the relevance of MI6, led by M (Ralph Fiennes). Bond covertly enlists Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) and Q (Ben Whishaw) to help him seek out Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux), the daughter of his old nemesis Mr White (Jesper Christensen), who may hold the clue to untangling the web of SPECTRE. As the daughter of an assassin, she understands Bond in a way most others cannot.

As Bond ventures towards the heart of SPECTRE, he learns of a chilling connection between himself and the enemy he seeks, played by Christoph Waltz.

Directed by Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) from the screenplay by Gladiator and Hugo writer John Logan along with veteran James Bond writing team Robert Wade and Neal Purvis (The World is Not Enough, Skyfall), Spectre opens in theaters nationwide November 6, 2015.

(PCM) Ever since the first episode of The Strain premiered we have found ourselves hooked to the epic FX drama. We caught up with actor Corey Stoll who plays the character of Ephraim Goodweather in the series at San Diego Comic Con 2015.

Stoll has been incredibly busy these days with various projects that include the role of Darren Cross/Yellowjacket in Marvel’s hit film “Ant-Man”and an upcoming role in Gillian Flynn’s “Dark Place” playing the brother to actress Charlize Theron. He was also recently seen in both “Homeland” and “House Of Cards”.

When discussing the direction of his character in season two of The Strain Stoll says “Last season, I was the resident skeptic and I was the last person to believe what everyone else in New York all ready knew. When we start season two, that’s gone. I’m still skeptical about some of the mythological basis behind what is going on and the stories Setrakian is telling me, but I believe there are vampires and I believe there is a Master that controls them and I believe they can use telepathy. But, I’m still using some kind of science based methodology to defeat them. I haven’t give up on the idea of a cure for the virus perhaps something that kills them, but doesn’t kill people. Almost like a bioweapon of sorts.”

When discussing his character’s downward spiral this season Stoll reveals, “You try to hold off as long as possible. You try to play each scene for the reality of what it is, where you are and not to prefigure the darkness that’s going to come. At the end of last season my character begins to drink again and instead of making it some kind of moralistic thing when I go into this spiral and I have to quit cold turkey, he drinks and he is self-medicating, but it is sort of working for him. It is making him a little bit more tolerable and it helps him to actually see some humor in the horror that’s around him.

There will definitely be consequences to pay for that and that is something that I really like about the show in general is its’ lack of puritanical moralism that a lot of horror has, for example the virgin always lives, the girl who sleeps around always dies first, so it’s good to kind of go away from that and we have Guillermo to thank for our twisted post-Catholic world.

Stoll told us that he has read the books and he knows where the character goes in the books, but this is clearly not the books. Carlton Cuse had said before that eighty percent of this season is exclusive to this series and is not from the book and he assumes that is going to be the case going forward. Stoll comments “If you read the books, that’s great because you have a sense of what the world is that we are living in and you know who some of the characters are, but the show really is its’ own thing. I have an idea of where Eph could go, but he could totally go in a different direction which is exciting. ”

Tune into an all-new episode of The Strain this Sunday at 10pm only on FX!

Gus and Vaun wage an attack on Palmer as Eph struggles to connect with Zack. Councilwomen Justine Faraldo vows to bring her extermination policies to the other boroughs.

(PCM) This is the reason we totally need to visit Japan! The Henn na Hotel (which translates to Weird Hotel) located at the Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Sasebo, Nagasaki Prefecture near Nagasaki, is the first hotel to be staffed entirely by robots. 

The front check-in desk features a realistic looking humaniod robot women along with a hilarious velociraptor robot sporting a bow-tie that perfectly speak both English and Japanese. There is also an adorable tulip-shaped tiny robot concierge in every room named Tuly that controls not only the lighting in the room but can give you information about the time and the weather as well.

There is also a robot porter that automatically carts luggage to visitors rooms and each room incorporates facial recognition software to grant entrance. The hotel currently has over sixty guest rooms available and hopes to offer up at least 1,000 by 2016.  Given the initial success of The Henn na Hotel, the company also plans to expand and create more hotels similar to this one across other areas of Japan. Because of the lack of a paid staff the hotel can also offer up great rates on rooms with the average cost being about $75 per night. 

Check out the video below for a full tour of the Henn na Hotel … when do we pack our bags!!

(PCM) Rumors have been circulating for quite some time that like many other fast food chains McDonald’s has its’ very own secret menu and it has now been confirmed by the manager of a franchise in Scotland during a recent Reddit AMA session.

He revealed that customers have the ability to mix and match any ingredients they wish, all they have to do is make the request and by willing to pay the difference for any additional add-ons. He went on to say that the most popular secret menu item, at least in Scotland, is “The Land, Air, and Sea Burger” which as you can imagine is a Big Mac, McChicken and Filet-O-Fish smashed into one sandwich.… Full Story

(PCM) Rumors have been circulating for quite some time that like many other fast food chains McDonald’s has its’ very own secret menu and it has now been confirmed by the manager of a franchise in Scotland during a recent Reddit AMA session.

He revealed that customers have the ability to mix and match any ingredients they wish, all they have to do is make the request and by willing to pay the difference for any additional add-ons. He went on to say that the most popular secret menu item, at least in Scotland, is “The Land, Air, and Sea Burger” which as you can imagine is a Big Mac, McChicken and Filet-O-Fish smashed into one sandwich.

The item we found the most humorous is the McGangBang which consists of a McChicken inside of a double cheeseburger! The McDonald’s secret menu was not created by anyone at corporate headquarters. It just consists of the numerous ways that customers can combine various ingredients to create some truly unique sandwich combinations.

The Scottish manager does offer up some final advice before ending his informative AMA saying “Do NOT order the grilled chicken. It’s horrible frozen chicken that we defrost and steam and it’s a bit gelatinous.”  Yuck!

(PCM) I can officially say that I am ridiculously excited for the upcoming release of “Black Cat”, the highly anticipated new album from alternative pop band Never Shout Never!  Never Shout Never’s Christofer Drew is an artist that absolutely refuses to be grouped into any one particular genre or style and this has never been more evident than within the tracks that make up the “Black Cat” record.

I adore that Never Shout Never has never been afraid to be a bit experimental with their sound and take a few risks along the way. It truly pays off with “Black Cat” as I find it to be one of the band’s most solid efforts to date.  “Black Cat” also marks the first time that Drew has welcomed the input of his fellow band mates and the album’s producer Dennis Harring to pen a few of the tracks that make up the album.

At the end of the day, “Black Cat” is a pop album, but with a more matured twist. Each track tells a very unique and engaging story and I find myself picking up on additional details with each and every listen. “Black Cat” is set to drop on August 7 via Warner Bros. Records just as Never Shout Never wraps up there stint playing the Main Stage at this years Vans Warped Tour. Fans who pre-order the album will receive instant access to download the new singles “Hey! We OK” and “Red Balloon”, which are also available for purchase via iTunes.

I caught up with Christofer Drew and the rest of Never Shout Never at the Van’s Warped Tour Stop in Columbia, MD to discuss the new album, touring plans, their creative process and more!  Check it out below:

RileyCurry_1(PCM) The answer is yes, and this Instagram post proves it.

If you don’t already know who Riley Curry is, please get out from under the rock you call home and introduce yourself to Youtube, where you can watch the viral videos of Riley stealing the show from her dad, NBA MVP Stephen Curry, during multiple post-game conferences aired on live TV.

After winning over the hearts of Americans everywhere with her hilarious couldn’t-care-less-about-being-on-live-tv attitude and toddler-antics, Riley Curry is back at it again, this time showcasing her cuteness on Instagram.

Riley was celebrating her third birthday this past weekend when her mother, Ayesha Curry, shared a video of the toddler getting down to Silentó’s viral summer hit, “Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae),” with the caption:
“This is 3!!! Happy birthday baby girl! Never a dull moment. You light up our lives and keep us on our toes. Mommy and daddy love you so much. Let’s celebrate! 👨👩<img src=" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" />‍<img src=" class="wp-smiley" style="height: 1em; max-height: 1em;" />.”

Riley can be seen doing her best nae nae and whipping in a cute green-striped romper while her parents proudly cheer her on from behind the camera.

It looks like the Curry’s could have a little future star on their hands. Watch the adorable video below!

(PCM) A big ‘uh-oh’ goes out to all the cheaters of the world who make up the nearly 37 million members of adult extra-marital/committed relationship affair website AshleyMadison.com. It was revealed that the website has been hacked and those behind the cyber attack are threatening to release the private information of users if the site is not completely shut down.

Ashley Madison is well known for their company slogan which is “Life is short. Have an affair”, however it appears that the hackers are certainly looking to shorten the lifespan of the popular website. Ashley Madison is owned by a Canadian company called Avid Life Media, who claim they were made aware of an attempt by an unauthorized party to gain access to their systems. They go on to say that they have been able to secure all of their sites and close the unauthorized access points and are now working with local authorities in an attempt to discover the group behind the hack.

This is not the first time an adults only website has been compromised. Earlier this year, Adult Friend Finder was hacked and the information for more than 3.5 million users was left exposed. The group behind the Ashley Madison hack claim that they are unhappy with the company’s “full delete” service which promises to fully delete a users entire profile and all associated information for a fee of $19.  The hackers claim that even after users pay the deletion fee their information, including real names and credit information still remain on the website and that the full delete service is a scam.

According to CNN, “If Ashley Madison is not taken offline, they have threatened to ‘release customer records, including profiles with all the customers’ secret sexual fantasies and matching credit card transactions, real names and addresses and employee documents and emails” leaving anyone who has ever used the site at rise of exposure.

MickFanning_2(PCM) A surfer competing in the J-Bay Open Finals had a close call on Sunday, July 19, in the waters of Jeffrey’s Bay on the eastern Cape of South Africa.

Triple world champion Mick Fanning was two-minutes into the J-Bay Open Finals when he felt something tugging on his leg rope, alerting him to dangers lurking right beside him.

The surfing competition was being aired live on television, capturing the harrowing moment the fins of two great white sharks emerge from the water right next to the surfer.

Escalating cries of alarm can be heard from the crowd of spectators standing in horror on the beach as Fanning’s dire situation becomes clear. The announcer yells “Get him out out of there!” as violent splashing is seen enveloping the panicked surfer.MickFanning

Footage from the World Surf League shows the moment Fanning’s fight-or-flight response kicks in; the professional australian surfer manages to kick his legs out and punch one of the sharks in the abdomen before swimming to a jet ski, with fellow competitor Julian Wilson, also in the water at the time of the attack, also being rescued by jet ski.

Cheers erupt from the crowd as the jet skis pull the surfers to the safety of the shore, putting an end to the dangerous run-in as well as the competition.

Mick Fanning recounted the incident to Fox Sports and spoke about his fear upon realizing the severity of the situation: “I just saw fins. I was waiting for the teeth.”

Fortunately, Mick Fanning escaped from the sharks unharmed. The J-Bay Open Finals were cancelled soon after the attack.MickFanning_4

The World Surf League the following statement after the incident:

“We are incredibly grateful that no one was seriously injured today. Mick’s composure and quick acting in the face of a terrifying situation was nothing short of heroic and the rapid response of our Water Safety personnel was commendable — they are truly world class at what they do.

“The safety of our athletes is a priority for the WSL and, after discussions with both Finalists, we have decided to cancel the remainder of competition at the J-Bay Open. We appreciate the ongoing support we have in South Africa and once again want to express our gratitude to the Water Safety Team.”

TheRevenant_Feature(PCM) 20th Century Fox released the first trailer for Oscar-winning director/co-writer Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy.

Inspired by true events, The Revenant is an immersive and visceral cinematic experience capturing one man’s epic adventure of survival and the extraordinary power of the human spirit.

In an expedition of the uncharted American wilderness, legendary explorer Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is brutally attacked by a bear and left for dead by members of his own hunting team. In a quest to survive, Glass endures unimaginable grief as well as the betrayal of his confidant John Fitzgerald (Tom Hardy).

Guided by sheer will and the love of his family, Glass must navigate a vicious winter in a relentless pursuit to live and find redemption.

The Revenant is directed and co-written by renowned filmmaker, Academy Award winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu (Birdman, Babel). Mark L. Smith (Vacancy, The Hole) co-wrote the script based on the 2003 novel by Michael Punke of the same name.

The trailer, while beautiful, is bleak and features almost no dialogue, color, or plot details. There’s a lot of DiCaprio trekking through the wild, wrapped in furs and fighting against other men as well as the elements.

The Revenant looks like the type of drama that requires mental preparation before watching based on how emotionally taxing the trailer is alone. Both DiCaprio and Hardy look like they dedicated themselves fully to their roles, diving into the hard lifestyle lived by those in 19th century wild America.

Watch the first trailer for The Revenant, also starring Domhnall Gleeson and Will Poulter, below, and visit The Revenant‘s official website, Facebook, and Twitter for more info!

The Revenant will open with an Oscar-qualifying limited run starting on December 25 before opening in theaters nationwide January 8, 2016.

(PCM) Everyone is used to seeing pairs of shoes tossed over top of power lines, but sex toys … that is an entirely new scenario!  Social media in Portland, Oregon has been exploding in the last few weeks with residents posting images of various sex toys dangling from the powers lines throughout the city. The best part is that they have yet to figure out exactly who is responsible. 

According to the various social media posts the number of swinging sex toys varies from dozens to as many as hundreds and they have been spotted North, Northeast and Southeast Portland. They appear to be placed a random.  The biggest complaint has been from people who have to explain to their children exactly what that oblong object dangling from the power line is actually is used for! 

Many residents find the situation to be humorous, while others are quite embarrassed by the situation. The Portland Office of Neighborhood Involvment is currently investigating the issue, but have thus far come up empty-handed as to who is behind the situation.

 A spokesman for public utility Portland General Electric said he did not believe the rubber products posed a fire hazard, so there is not any type of serious safety concern at this time!
