Trailer Watch – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Internet’s blowing up today with the first look at the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

From such a short look, it’s tough to say what it’ll be like. I kind of agree with this YouTuber:


Also, I have to note that I really don’t buy Megan Fox as April O’Neil. She just… isn’t. Hopefully, I’m wrong about that and she knocks it out of the park – though I’ll be holding my breath until I see more. Check it out for yourself and leave a comment below!

Trailer Watch – X-Men: Days of Future Past

Braaaaaand new Days of Future Past trailer here!

It looks dark, or at least a little darker than your average Marvel movie – but I like it. The desperation over being on the verge of extinction feels real too, and then throw time travel and manipulation of events into things…

…hoooo, you’ve got a late spring blockbuster on your hands. May 23rd, here we come!

Trailer Watch – The Signal

Hot off the trailer press (it’s a actual machine, guys) comes sci-fi pshychological thriller The Signal, starring Laurence Fishburne and Brenton Thwaites. The plot follows two MIT grads with a passion for hacking as they encounter something very strange in the Nevada desert.

It looks like a mend-bending but beautifully shot trek into the imagination. And there’s more – confronts the us with an interactive computer terminal that no doubt lets on to some secrets – with the right commands…

Check out the trailer below, or the crazed teaser here. The Signal hits theatres in June 2014.

P.S. I may have lied about that trailer press thing.

Ten Second Songs is a Dark Horse Contender for My Favourite Vid

YouTuber Ten Second Songs has created an amazing video of Katy Perry hit “Dark Horse” sung in 20 different styles.

Even if you’re a straight-up Katy Perry fan (or, maybe you just secretly like “Roar“), this video is so much fun. It features a huge range of styles, everything from Frank Sinatra, to ‘N Sync to Iron Maiden. Oh, and the singer nails every style. This guy has PIPES, friends!

Trailer Watch – Orphan Black, Season 2

Just released is a trailer that’s sure to have eyeballs awooga-ing all across the Internet.

Space’s original series Orphan Black is coming back for season 2, and if you haven’t seen this show, you NEED to watch it – if not for the mind-bending plot turns and cool sci-fi action, then for Tatiana Maslany’s acting alone.

For those who have seen it – there are. No words. Let’s get on with it:

Orphan Black returns on April 19th, 2014.

Trailer Watch – Guardians of the Galaxy

OH EM GEEEEEEE. The first-ever Guardians of the Galaxy trailer has just been released, exclusively shown during Jimmy Kimmel Live last night (how much did they have to pay for that?).

At a first glance, it looks AWESOME! Great effects good casting and really, really funny!! I heard rumours it might be airing originally during the Super Bowl, but obviously that didn’t happen… and now this!

If you need a chuckle and your daily dose of “booyah”, have a watch and leave a comment telling me what you think:

Guardians of the Galaxy is set to premiere August 1, 2014.

Trailer Watch – Transformers: Age of Extinction

Okay, so at 43 seconds long it’s actually more of a teaser, but it appears Michael Bay is climbing back on his old mechanized horse for Transformers: Age of Exinction:

I don’t know where to begin here. I guess it’d be pretty cool to turn your face into a gun (although, ouch?). And then things get really interesting as the movie’s theme really comes to light – dinosaurs. Mechanized, weapon-toting, transformer-riding dinosaurs. From space.

You’ve made me nervous, Michael. New cast, new story… movie #4. Movie #4′s rarely exist for a reason: your story miiiight be done, dude.

Transformers: Age of Extinction‘s release date is set for Summer 2014.

New Elder Scrolls Online Trailer – The Arrival

Here at, we’ve totally got a nerd boner for the upcoming Elder Scrolls Online. So when the latest cinematic trailer for the highly anticipated MMO dropped this morning, this writer’s reaction went a little something like so.

It’s no surprise I’m once again salivating over the quality of the graphics here – if I could shoot lightning from my hands, I’m pretty sure it would actually look like that.

Story-wise, we pick up right where the first trailer leaves off with a confrontation between the Daggerfall Covenant, the Ebonheart Pact and the Aldmeri Dominion – and the arrival of something much, much more sinister.

Beta tests aside, damn it, April 4 – get here sooner.

Taylor Swift Attacked at the Grammys

I only caught bits and pieces of the Grammys last weekend – and I’m so, so sad I missed this.

Taylor Swift was really going at it on stage… until the unthinkable happens:

How long until she gets Blanka trolled too, hmm? But you’re right, Ryu – you must train harder. She’s a fearsome opponent…

Fight the Drearies with This Doctor Who Lip Dub

I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but here it’s been pretty cold and grey. Not to worry, though – I’ve got a cure for the Winter blahs. A very nerdy cure.

The always charming David Tennant wanted to celebrate the end of his time as Doctor Who in style… very Scottish style i.e. this adorable cast and crew-wide lip dub of The Proclaimers classic “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)”.  Just try not to smile at the sight of the cool dance moves of the Ood or, my personal favourite, David Tennant fanboy-ing as he dances with The Proclaimers themselves:
