If there’s one thing to be thankful for this weekend besides friends, family and that new Star Wars: The Force Awakens extended TV spot that arrived yesterday, it’s the potential return of one of the most wonderful drinks from the late 80s and early 90s.
Even for kids who were inexplicably not fans of Ghostbusters in the 90s, the Hi-C juice flavor Ecto-Cooler was a staple in lunchboxes and sleepovers, featuring Slimer on the box as the drink’s mascot. It was all the rage from when The Real Ghostbusters series started and lasted well past the cancellation of the animated series. But it’s been gone for years. However, there might be hope of a comeback as Coca-Cola just recently re-registered the trademark for Ecto-Cooler back in September. Read More »
Within the past couple weeks, Prometheus 2 officially got a new title and a synopsis detailing the sequel to the prequel to the Alien franchise from director Ridley Scott. The movie is called Alien: Covenant, and the fast track for this project ended up pushing back Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5 to an undetermined time, and if Scott’s new plan for the Alien franchise continues, it might be a long time before we see that movie.
At a press conference in Sydney, Australia where Scott is in pre-production on Alien: Covenant, he revealed that this will actually be the first in a new trilogy that will lead us all the way back to the original Alien from 1979. More below! Read More »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is such a preposterous concept that it’s hard to believe it was published as a novel before it became a feature film. But here we are: a movie adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s parody is on the way and a new trailer has arrived to once again prove its existence. You just know that this whole endeavor has Jane Austen rolling over in her grave, which, considering the subject matter, is probably appropriate.
Watch the new Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trailer after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
For anyone who has ever seen a classic movie from the 1950s and before, at least the ones that have sound, you’ve probably noticed that pretty much all the actors speak in a very unique accent that doesn’t sound like it comes from any particular region. It’s fast-talking, usually with prominent t-sounds and dropped r-sounds at the end of words.
If you’ve ever thought that it’s a bit strange to hear people talk like that, you’re not the only one, and there’s actually an explanation as to why people on movies and the radio talked like this. It’s called the Mid-Atlantic accent, and you can find out more about it below. Read More »
