Kevin Bacon Will Star In a Tremors TV Reboot!

by James Whitbrook

Love it.

Well, chalk this one up on the list of things we never expected to hear today. After trying to make a TV breakthrough over a decade ago on channel formerly known as Sci-Fi, cult classic Tremors is heading to TV once more: but this time, it’ll wield the unstoppable star power of Kevin Bacon himself.

‘Fargo’ Creator Noah Hawley Developing Kurt Vonnegut’s ‘Cat’s Cradle’ for FX

by Angie Han

Cat's Cradle TV series

High off the success of Fargo, now in its second season, Noah Hawley has set his sights on another all-American classic of pitch-black comedy. Hawley and FX are developing on TV series based on Kurt Vonnegut‘s Cat’s Cradle, a dystopian sci-fi tale that satirizes the Cold War arms race. More details on the Cats Cradle TV series after the jump. 

IM Global initially announced plans for a Cat’s Cradle TV series in May, and the project is now moving forward with FX Productions producing. Hawley will write and executive produce the Cat’s Cradle TV series as part of his two-year overall deal with FX. TheWrap reports Cat’s Cradle will be a limited series, which makes sense — it’s not the kind of premise you can sustain indefinitely.

In the broader sense, Cat’s Cradle is about, among other things, the dangers of technological advancement, the purpose of religion, and the possibility of nuclear annihilation. Published in 1963, it reflects the concerns of the Cold War era, but its themes are still relevant today, and will be as long as science, war, and religion are around. So, you know, forever.

In typical Vonnegut fashion, those themes are bent and twisted into surreal yet resonant forms. The story follows a writer named John who gets involved with the children of the (fictional) co-creator of the atom bomb, and learns of a (fictional) crystalline form of water called ice-nine. The characters wind up on the fictional island of San Lorenzo, where the local population worships a strange religion with even stranger origins.

Vonnegut’s voice is so distinctive, and Cat’s Cradle so weird, that my immediate instinct is to worry that Hawley will screw it up. But no one thought a TV adaptation of Fargo really sounded like a good idea at first, either (well, no one besides Hawley and FX, at least), and Hawley’s somehow managed to pull that off. That show’s mix of bleak humanity and pitch-black humor suggest Hawley’s sensibility could actually work pretty well for a Vonnegut adaptation.

Cat’s Cradle is Hawley’s third show with FX. Besides Fargo, he is also currently working on the X-Men-inspired Legion. The latter follows a troubled young mutant named David Haller (Professor X’s son in the comics), who’s been diagnosed as schizophrenic but comes to realize that the voices he’s hearing might be real. Legion already has a pilot order and Hawley is writing and executive producing.

Here is what Mondo in Austin Texas has announced for Black Friday:

Since 2011, we’ve opened up our poster flat file a couple times a year for a sale featuring a selection of sold-out prints from our archive. This has been something offered exclusively at our gallery space in Austin – until now. This Wednesday, we’ll be shutting down our site to prepare for the first online Flat File sale in the company’s history, kicking off at 10AM central time on Friday, November 27th. Fans can expect over 400 different prints sold at original cost from artists like Aaron Horkey, Tyler Stout, Olly Moss, Daniel Danger, Ken Taylor, Martin Ansin, and many more. With just a few of each poster available, you’ll want to be there when the Black Friday countdown clock hits zero. Flat file sales provide an opportunity for fans to purchase sold-out posters from the Mondo archive at original cost. The tradition began at our gallery in Austin, Texas where we opened up our poster flat file to local fans in between gallery exhibits. For Black Friday 2015, we’re excited to present the first-ever online flat file sale for fans across the globe.

No clues on which prints will be includes in the sale other than some of the posters will date back to 2010. Some posters we’ll only have a single print available, others will have a few. The sale goes live on Black Friday at 10am central time and will run through Sunday at 11:59PM CT. These prints are likely to sell very fast. Please Note that Mondo warns that adding posters to your cart does not guarantee purchase. Once an item is in your cart, you must continue to “checkout” to secure it for the allotted time. Also note that due to the number of posters available in the sale, Mondo can’t guarantee that your order will be fulfilled before the New Year. So don’t count on this as a Christmas gift. There is a full FAQ on their website.

And Phone Booth Gallery is also doing a “2015 Holiday Mystery Tube Sale.” Here are the details from their mailing list:

We discovered some hidden gems during our move, so we’re pulling out all the stops with rare and sold out prints, original drawings, scratch and dent, and even more surprises for everyone.

Phone Booth Gallery’s mystery tubes are now available on their website. And New York based artist Billy Dyson has donated an original work of art from his latest series “Speak 2 The Dead” as a giveaway — to one lucky winner.

They will also be doing a Black Friday deal:

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Trailer: If You Could Go Back in Time, Would You Kill Baby Vandal Savage?

by Jacob Hall

legends of tomorrow trailer

While the burgeoning DC movie universe will officially attempt to win the hearts of minds of audiences all over the world with 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, the DC television universe has already moved past its “safe and comfortable” phase and into its “totally batshit can you believe this exists” phase. When Arrow premiered back in 2012, no one imagined that The CW would soon house its own bonkers comic book universe that would win over nerds and norms alike. But here we are – just as The Flash was officially establishing itself as the geekiest show on television, Legends of Tomorrow is here to dethrone it.

Set in the already jam-packed Arrow/Flash universe, Legends of Tomorrow borrows recurring heroes and villains from those two series, introduces a lot more, and sends everyone on a time traveling adventure to take down the immortal DC comics baddie Vandal Savage. It looks insane. And very fun.

Watch the new and totally crazy Legends of Tomorrow trailer after the jump.

In addition to its DC comics roots, this trailer contains shades of Star Trek, Doctor Who, and Quantum Leap. It’s just a whole bunch of insane concepts you love, stuffed into a single glossy package. If the first trailer had our curiosity, this one has our attention.

That this show exists at all is fascinating. Here is a relatively expensive-looking show on a relatively major network that features a superhero line-up consisting of the Atom, White Canary, Firestorm, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Captain Cold, and Heatwave. How did this happen? Who approved it? Let us know so we can thank them.

The set-up for this series is simple enough: time traveler Rip Hunter recruits a team of heroes and anti-heroes from the present day to help battle the villainous Vandal Savage, who has literally taken over the entire world in 2166. And since he’s an ancient, undying menace who has lived for eons, the team must jaunt through time to attack him when he’s weakest (this trailer suggests that the pilot will mostly take place in 1975). It’s the “Would you kill baby Hitler?” question that has been plaguing the internet as of late with a superhero twist.

Created by Greg BerlantiAndrew Kreisberg, and Marc Guggenheim, Legends of Tomorrow looks to do what Arrow and The Flash did so very well: make a mountain of pebbles. Denied the use of major DC comic book superheroes like Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, these shows transformed their weaknesses into strengths, taking the B and C-level characters that were available to them and making them sing. Here is a fully realized DC universe that functions without the big guys. Somehow, it works.

Of course, this trailer does feature a line that should be of incredible interest for DC aficionados:

I’ve seen men of steel die and dark knights fall.

While we probably won’t be seeing Batman and Superman on the small screen anytime soon, little references like this make the CW’s DC universe feel like the part of something much bigger. If the movies are the “main” continuity, than these shows are Earth 2, an alternate dimension where the likes Atom and Captain Cold can be the center of attention. That’s just plain spiffy.

Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on January 21, 2016 on The CW.

Adorably Punny Artwork By Arseniic

by Zeon Santos

Love puns.

Everyone on the interwebs loves a wacky linguistic visualization, aka a funny pun pic, but when people try to bring puns to life with an illustration the funny tends to fall apart.

However, an illustrator who goes by the name Arseniic has begun drawing on her years of experience using pencils and pens to bring puns to life, and her punny little works of art are out of this world!

You can find Arseniic's bright and punny pieces on her Tumblr site Pundemonium, where the puns flow like turkey soup...

Husband Publishes List: "Reasons My Wife Is Crying"

by John Farrier

We all cry sometimes. For example, you may get sawdust in your eyes while woodworking. Or you watch an emotionally intense movie, such as The Dirty Dozen.

Those are the two occasions when it is acceptable to cry.

But Aaron Gillies, a comedy writer, has noted that his wife cries more often than that. She cries at incidents that he finds trivial. He has published a list of some of these occasions. These include watching a rabbit escape from a fox in a nature documentary and remembering that swans can be gay.

On reflection, I agree with the wife: all of these are legitimate reasons to cry, which you can now add to the pair that I have mentioned above.

Now, as a happily married man who plans to remain that way, I advise you gentlemen to never do this. Embarrassing your wife online is a terrible idea for most marriages. But Gillies's wife tweets that "I don't feel at all attacked." She's a good sport.

Black Friday Preview from Obvious Plant

by Miss Cellania

Jeff Wysaski created a mockup Black Friday circular and posted it at some poor Target store. The items offered are obviously fake if you take a minute to think about them: a tent with an angry possum in it? A free falcon with a $75 order? You have to look closely to catch all the jokes.

But then there are these “exclusive Star Wars toys.” Who wouldn’t want a C-3P Fro? Or an Episode VII hot dog blaster? Personally, I want the Luke Skymopper. See several more pages of these at Obvious Plant.

Fargo Gets Third Season Renewal

by Erik Amaya

Nice. If you are not watching this, you should be.

fargoFX announced Fargo will get a third season according to Deadline. The show, characterized as a limited series, is based on the Joel and Ethan Coen movie of the same name, but tells tales far and away from the kidnapping case of the feature. The second season, set in the 1979, stars Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons and Bruce Campbell as presidential hopeful Ronald Reagan.

“Year 2 of Fargo is an extraordinary achievement and, given Noah Hawley’s masterful storytelling, we can’t wait to see where the third, all-new version of Fargo takes us,” said Eric Schrier, a President of Original Programming for FX Networks and FX Productions.

Besides Fargo, Hawley is developing an number of shows for the cable channel, including Legion, based on the X-Men character, and an adaptation of Kurt Vonnegut‘s novel, Cat’s Cradle.

Fargo, which airs on Mondays, has four episodes of the current season left to broadcast.

Video: Fighter dislodges opponent's tooth, punches it into crowd

by MMAjunkie Staff

Filed under: Featured Videos, News, Videos

During the recent APEX Fights 8 event, Joshua Spears lost a tooth – and based on its subsequent trajectory, it’s probably not one he got back.

Facing fellow featherweight Preston Schick at the Nov. 14 event in Kingsport, Tenn., Spears ate a heavy right and then a quick left, which dislodged a tooth and sent it airborne. Schick then quickly unloaded another right, and the tooth was sent rocketing into the crowd:


Check out the full fight above (courtesy of Valor Fights), or skip to the 3:30 mark to watch the fight-ending sequence and the flying incisor.

And if you’re in the Tennessee area, you can try to grab your own souvenir on Dec. 12, when APEX Fights 9 takes place in Newport.

‘Real Rob’ Trailer: Rob Schneider Has His Own Netflix Show Now

by Angie Han

This actually looks pretty good. His desperation may be funny.

Real Rob Trailer

Netflix has revived everything from Arrested Development to The Killing to Full House to Gilmore Girls, and apparently they figured while they were at it, they might as well bring back Rob Schneider‘s short-lived CBS sitcom ¡Rob!, too.

Well, not really. But the company is putting out another sitcom named after and starring Schneider. Real Rob promises to be somewhat more autobiographical, though. This is to Schneider what Master of None was to Aziz Ansari. Whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing depends on what you think of Schneider’s brand of comedy. Watch the first Real Rob trailer after the jump. 

Netflix unveiled the first Real Rob trailer on YouTube.

Per Schneider’s website:

The scripted series is an exaggerated yet brutally honest depiction of Schneider’s real life. Rob lives in two worlds, one where he’s the most important person on set, and the other, where he’s the third most important person in a three-person household, after his two-year-old daughter, Miranda, and his younger Mexican wife, Patricia. Patricia doesn’t quite grasp Rob’s level of fame, because when he was getting his first movie role, she was getting her first tricycle. Rob lives a life where his stalker is more reliable than his assistant, while his assistant is creepier than his stalker. Real Rob! is a ‘close to the bone’ portrayal of the internationally famous comedian, from the ups and downs of celebrity life, to the closer to home issues Rob faces daily with his wife and daughter. Season 1 guest stars include George Lopez, David Spade, and Norm Macdonald.

The page also boasts that Schneider is “the first actor to have written, produced, starred, directed and self-financed an entire season of a television show,” so now we know where all that sweet Grown Ups money is going. Speaking of which, Schneider is also reuniting with his Grown Ups co-star Adam Sandler for another Netflix project, Ridiculous 6.

The Real Rob trailer is full of such gems as “claustrophobia — the gayest of all phobias!” which doesn’t bode particularly well for the series. (Though this trailer is arguably less cringeworthy than the one for Ridiculous 6. Right? Maybe?) But it doesn’t really matter. According to Schneider’s website, another season is already on the way.

The way I see it, Real Rob is a win for everyone. If you like Schneider, it’s one more show to look forward to on your queue. If you don’t, it’s a welcome breather from the barrage of must-see TV that’s come from the service in the past few weeks. Now you can peruse Jessica Jones at your leisure, without worrying you’ll fall behind on your TV-viewing all over again when Real Rob hits December 1.

‘Game of Thrones’ Season 6 Poster: Guess Who’s Back?

by Angie Han


HBO has dropped the first Game of Thrones Season 6 poster, and it confirms two things we’ve long suspected. One is that the show will return in April, as it usually does. No big surprise there. The other is that a certain someone will be back, in some way, shape, or form. Feast your eyes on the Game of Thrones Season 6 poster after the jump. 

For the past five months, the Game of Thrones fandom has been embroiled in a debate about what really happened to Jon Snow. All the while, the cast and crew have strenuously insisted that “dead is dead.” But Snow’s return has been perhaps the worst-kept secret on television. Kit Harington has been spotted on set on numerous occasions, and at this point the question isn’t so much if he’ll be back as how.

HBO isn’t quite ready to give away the answer to that second question yet, but it is at least giving up on pretending Jon is gone for good. The Game of Thrones Season 6 poster confirms we haven’t seen the last of him. Even if he does seem to be in worse shape than usual.

Game of Thrones Season 6 poster

Could that be a corpse? I mean… maybe. But it’d be awfully strange for HBO to kick off its entire Season 6 marketing game with an image of a guy who won’t figure into the season beyond a funeral scene. We’ll point out that while, yes, “dead is dead,” “dead” doesn’t quite mean the same thing in Westeros that it does in our reality. Jon Snow exists in a world where the red priest Thoros of Myr can revive Beric Dondarrion, after all. And there just so happens to be a red priestess currently hanging around the Wall, which seems awfully convenient.

Meanwhile, it’s looking increasingly likely that Jon Snow won’t even be the only “dead” character to resurface in Season 6. Recently, Ian McShane dropped some clues that seemed to indicate his character would be responsible for bringing back another fan favorite. So if we’re just bringing dead people back willy-nilly now… can someone maybe get to resurrecting Oberyn Martell? Pretty please?

Seven Sexy Moves Street Fighter Taught Us

by Zeon Santos

The Street Fighter franchise may not be the obvious place to go for advice on your sex life, but those bare knuckle brawlers Chun Li and Ryu are total knock outs so maybe they have some good advice to offer.

Dhalsim is surely a master of the Tantric arts, seeing as how he's so flexible, and Blanka, well, let's just say he's shockingly good in bed.


Thanks to Ross Snow's naughty yet nerdy mind we can now glean a sexy move or two from the Street Fighter crew, and while they're not all winners they're guaranteed to lead to round 2!

10 Bars at the End of the World

by John Farrier

(Photo: South African Tourism)

Baobabs are among the widest trees in the world and this particular one is a whopper. At 155 feet around, the Sunland Baobob in Limpopo, South Africa is the largest in the continent. It's the location of a nice bar, located in the interior of the tree. The bar is designed to look like a classic English pub. It even has a dartboard. Up to 20 people can fit into the pub comfortably, drinking beer stored in the bar's literal root cellar.

This is 1 of 10 unusual bars located at remote or extreme locations rounded up by Atlas Obscura. The list includes one in Antarctica that distills its own vodka, the only bar on Pitcairn Island, and one in Scotland that is usually accessed by a boat ride.

Forget The Walking Dead, Fargo is The Most Brutal Show on Television

by Neil Miller

This show is phenomenal.

Patrick Wilson on Fargo

We can’t talk enough about Fargo. And by we, I mean you and I, dear reader. It’s been a long time coming — we’re already 6 episodes into the 10 episode second season of this fantastic show — but that doesn’t change the fact that we need to have a conversation about it.

Remember Game of Thrones in its third and fourth seasons? There was a raw, exposed nerve of unpredictability, especially for viewers not already familiar with George R.R. Martin’s books. The show experienced a lot of death. No one was safe. People have been telling me for weeks that this is where The Walking Dead is in its sixth and current season. On any given Sunday evening, one of your favorite characters can be snatched from you, their previously vivid presence snuffed out in some horrible manner. For shows like this, it’s all about “who” is going to die that brings about the horror.

Fargo is a different sort of beast entirely. Sure, there’s plenty of investment. I really like Patrick Wilson’s Lou Solverson, the Minnesota State Trooper with the adorably cancer-ridden wife, the young daughter (who is the connective tissue to season one) and the charming relationship with his local sheriff father-in-law (played gruffly by the living legend that is Ted Danson). But if Lou didn’t make it out of this second season — he’s still around through 6 episodes, sorry if that’s a spoiler — I’m not sure I’d be worried so much about the “who” as I would be about the “how” and “when.” Because when Fargo decides that it’s your time to go, you go in an unapologetically harsh manner. Everything is on the table at all times. And the show, oozing with style and kitschy accents, is a finely tuned weapon of anxiety creation. It’s easy to get swept up in the high-wire act, equally enthralled in the beautiful, silky smooth rhythm of its visual presentation, while also being tight as a fisherman’s not inside.

The most recent episode, “Rhinoceros,” is a perfect example of this matching of elegance and pre-trauma storytelling. If you haven’t watched it yet, go catch up. I’ll wait.

Nick Offerman on Fargo

What you’ve just seen is an episode that is all about the consequences of sometimes rash decisions. As Kirsten Dunst’s Peggy explains, sometimes we make decisions and it feels like we’re deciding inside a dream. The core theme of Fargo, both seasons now, is that in times of crisis, normal people don’t usually stop and take stock of their options. Bad things don’t happen in a vacuum. And the result of allowing yourself to be hurled forward toward a wrong decision can cause utter chaos.

In the Fargo universe, that chaos is splendid. Chaos is the engine that drives the narrative. And the methods they use to convey this chaos, mostly via split-screen in season 2, amplifies what we already know: that at any one moment, characters are being hurled at each other with immeasurable force. And only rarely, as we saw this week with Nick Offerman’s spectacular scene outside the police station, does reason prevail.

Death comes for us all. Fargo understands that and isn’t intrinsically focused on who gets the bullet, or the clever, or the front end of someone’s car. It’s core goal is to keep us tightly wound, ready for the brutality of the “how” and “when.” Which is what makes it all so exciting. Season 2 appears to be building toward some kind of grizzly, chaotic end. And that’s wonderful, no matter who ends up in the cold ground.

Fargo’s next episode, “Did You Do This? No, You Did It!” airs on November 23rd at 10pm on FX.
