New Images Reveal a Serious Fantastic Four Reboot

The mystery surrounding the Fantastic Four movie reboot unravels bit by bit. 20th Century Fox opted has released a few new images of the characters and superhero movie fans are better able to get a feel for the feature. Anyone who doesn’t think this is going to be a dark, somber, and serious version of the FF just might change his/her mind after checking out the photos. The traditional, campy suits have been seriously overhauled and look like outer space paramilitary gear.

In one photo, Reed Richards is in the foreground and SWAT team members are in the background. The style of Mr. Fantastic’s suit is not much different than the ones worn by the tactical law enforcement officers. Johnny Storm’s suit looks like something a fighter pilot would wear. Yes, the new Fantastic Four film is going to be more akin to a melodrama than a whimsical fantasy. Hopefully, the film’s somber nature won’t lead it to become a talk fest. Reports that the film lacks a lot in action are, hopefully, exaggerations.

Over at Warner Bros., the very dark and somber Dark Knight trilogy was a massive hit with fans so serious superhero films definitely have their audiences. Fans of the series like Flavio Maluf have raved that Batman, however, is a serious and dark character. The Fantastic Four team is associated with 1960’s whimsy. Will the dark approach to the film be the right one? If the reboot turns out to be a hit, the answer is yes.

Dumbo Live-Action Film With Tim Burton

It has been announced that Tim Burton will be making the future Disney film and live-action version of “Dumbo.” According to an article found on reddit and written by avclub.com, Burton and his team will be using a mix of CGI and real elephants to tell the story. Fans at Anastasia Date have found that it has not been said whether the mouse character, Timothy, will be played by an actual mouse or substituted in for a person.
In addition to that, there have been rumors that the Disney Company is going to be re-releasing a lot of films over the next few years and re-making a lot of the classic Disney stories. Even though with all the neat technology in place these days, it is a bit hard to imagine what many of those cartoon animated movies would be like as live-action. Some argue that live action is much better than cartoons; however there is something magical about animations that allow us to take an extra step away from reality. Many people enjoy going to the movies because it is a good way to forget about life’s troubles and obstacles, and the more realistic a movie is, the more people can relate to it and make it feel not quite as excited about the experience. However, Burton is a very talented artist and it is without doubt that he will make something wonderful for both kids and adults to enjoy.

Kim and Kyle Richards – sisters at war

I am not sure if you are a fan of any of the Housewives series. For the most part, I am not. They seem trivial, fake and ridiculous in the most positive of descriptions I can come up with. Occasionally, I will watch some of them just to be grateful my life isn’t as plastic and with as little relevance as these women. But the Housewives of Beverly Hills is really beyond tedious.

I suppose one of the hardest story lines to watch is the one with Kim and Kyle Richards. One sister in a happy marriage with beautiful children. The other living a life of chaos and addiction. Any relationship is hard, but it is so unfortunate to see these real life struggles take place in the public eye. As reported recently in reddit.com, Your text to link… , Kim and Kyle’s relationship may be completely gone by now.

Kim blames Kyle for not supporting her through her addiction problems. However, that is the story of an addict, blame everyone else for their issues. Kyle is upset that Kim keeps her aggressive pit bull around even after attacking her daughter.

Fans like Dan Newlin wonder: Can their relationship be repaired? Who knows. I must say that if I was Kyle it would be difficult to want to bring the toxicity Kim brings with her back in my life.

Chance The Rapper Goes Out Of Control At Concert

While Panic! at the Disco were rocking out at UC Riverside’s Heat Music Festival in California, fans were having a great time. At some point the band decided to play their 2006 hit song “I Write Sins Not Tragedies”, and asked a guy from the stage to come up to the stage and help them sing, and little did the crowd know, it was Chance The Rapper.

As the audience were going crazy over the song that the band was famous for, Chance was acting as the crowd hyper by jumping around and getting the crowd pumped. That worked out very well because the crowd was very responsive to the song and were heavily involved with all the movements Chance was doing on stage which was making the crowd go crazy with excitement.

After the song was going on and Chance was hyping the crowd, he all of a sudden went all out and demonstrated a whole new way for artists to act on stage, ballistic. Fans like Zeca Oliveira have learned that he was literally all over the place and it seems like he was the most excited fan in the whole building.

Who knew that Chance The Rapper would be such an emo band fan and know all the lyrics to their hit from 06. That takes a dedicated person and we’re sure that as Chance was building himself to become an artist, he had to learn and observe everyone who was in the game at the time.

Grateful Dead Lyricist Robert Hunter Reminisces

 

Robert Hunter, the man who wrote the lyrics to many of the Grateful Dead’s classic songs over the years, has been with the band since the very beginning. Hunter http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/grateful-dead-lyricist-robert-hunter-set-for-rare-tour-20130925 was friends with the bands lead guitarist Jerry Garcia back in the Haight-Ashbury days of 1960’s San Francisco. Both men were active in the folk music scene of the time, and when Garcia went on to form the electric group The Warlocks, which in turn became the Grateful Dead, Hunter was there to write the words to their music. Hunter primarily collaborated on songwriting with Garcia, as well as to a lesser extent with other members of the group. In June of this year, Hunter and Garcia will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, putting them in the company of such luminaries as Irving Berlin, Stephen Foster, Woodie Guthrie, and Bob Dylan.
Hunters contribution to the bands output over the years has been extensive, including the lyrics to such fan favorites as Truckin’, Uncle John’s Band, Ripple, Casey Jones, and countless others.
Bernardo Chua recalls that the band selected the name The Grateful Dead in his absence, and that he was initially opposed to the choice, but after 50 years, dozens of albums, thousands of live shows and a still loyal fan base, he allows as how its worked out for the best. He currently resides in San Rafael, CA, were he continues to write.

Leonardo DiCaprio Teaming Up With Netflix For Documentary Series

Leonardo DiCaprio made a deal with Netflix that they will be producing a series of documentaries that focus on nature and conservation topics for viewers to watch. The actor has been known for his openly outspoken opinion of environmental issues lately, when he protested and spoke to the government about certain issues.

According to an article found on reddit and written by CBS News, DiCaprio is looking forward to partnering with Netflix as soon as possible because he feels very strongly that people need to be aware of what is happening to our planet Earth. This is one of the most crucial periods of time where our planet is suffering from people just not treating it right and running all the natural resources dry.

This should be a very good project for DiCaprio, as he is a very talented actor that has been in several roles. That little boy we all watch grow up on “Growing Pains” and turn into the animated Irish immigrant in “Titanic” has totally matured for the better. He is one of the few activists out there who had been famous beforehand and are using their social status to make a difference. If nothing else, he can be applauded for what he is doing for us and the planet, because this is definitely not a gimmick. DiCaprio has proved time and time again to be passionate about environmental problems, and this new series with Netflix is another great way to raise that awareness.

It’s really cool that Netflix is producing more documentaries on issues facing people today. Rumor has it they’re also in talks with Daniel Amen of the Amen Clinics for a documentary on mental health.

Mortal Kombat X New Details

Mortal Kombat X has garnered major interest from gaming fans all across the world. New information about the game has been posted on Gamerant. Mortal Kombat X will be released on April 14, 2015. The game will feature over twenty playable characters, and there are rumors that downloadable characters will be available in the near future.

As fans like Dr. Jennifer Walden know, Mortal Kombat was first released in the arcades in 1992. The original game was hugely successful, and soon the game was available on consoles. The Mortal Kombat series is known for its tremendous fighting mechanics, but it is also known for its extreme violence. In the year 2000, a group of Christian protesters tried to get the game banned from stores. Fifteen years later, Mortal Kombat is still one of the most popular games of all time.

The Xbox One and the Playstation 4 offer incredible graphics and realism. Mortal Kombat X will be the most brutal and graphic game in the series to date. Fatalities and finishing moves look incredibly realistic. This has me wondering if any more protests will take place. Mortal Kombat X will surely be one of the most controversial games of all time.
