outlander season 2 trailer

One of the most enjoyable panels I attended this year at Comic Con was for Starz’s Outlander. I’ve never seen an episode of the show, but what I saw at Comic Con, including its insanely charming cast and writers and the footage they previewed, made me want to finally watch the show. The Outlander season 2 trailer makes me, once again, regret I haven’t watched season 1 yet.

Watch the Outlander season 2 teaser trailer after the jump.

Alamo Drafthouse Star Wars Movie Theater

Up until today, you probably had no reason to go to Omaha, Nebraska. But that will change once you see the new theater the Alamo Drafthouse has just opened in the city of this Great Plains state.

The hip cineplex chain has just opened up a Star Wars movie theater unlike any you’ve seen before, complete with a 10-foot Death Star in the lobby. And yes, that thing’s operational. But that’s just one of the cool design features that makes this theater strong with the Force. See more photos below! Read More »

national board of review winners

The National Board of Review doesn’t often predict which film will win big at the Academy Awards, but its year-end awards frequently align with films that ultimately score big nominations. That’s why their selection of Mad Max: Fury Road as the best film of 2015 can’t help but feel like a big deal. Since the year 2000, only two of NBR’s picks for best film of the year (2014’s A Most Violent Year and 2000’s Quillshaven’t gone on to compete for the top prize at the Oscars, so you have to wonder if the passionate groundswell of critical support for George Miller‘s visceral masterpiece will take it where few action blockbusters have gone before: the Best Picture race.

Check out the full list of National Board of Review winners after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Patton Oswalt on Agents of SHIELD

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is an old show making fun of even older movies. But now that it’s being resurrected, it’s bringing on some fresh blood. Patton Oswalt has just joined the cast as TV’s Frank’s son — or rather, “TV’s Son of TV’s Frank” — the henchman to the new Mad, played by Felicia Day. More on the Patton Oswalt MST3K casting after the jump.

Joel Hodgson announced the Patton Oswalt MST3K casting in an update to the show’s Kickstarter page this week, while Oswalt confirmed the news on his own Twitter page.

Oswalt is a longtime MST3K fan, and Hodgson is a fan of Oswalt’s right back — he describes the standup comedian and actor as “a very fun, articulate and witty soul – just the kind of person who we’ve always tried to bring onboard for MST3K.” At first, Hodgson explained, he only thought to get Oswalt on board as a guest writer. But then, Hodgson continued:

Remember last week, how I said my creative process usually starts with visuals, and then I work backward? Well, in this case, I first imagined Patton dressed up like TV’s Frank. I figured maybe he’d be Frank’s son, or at least a clone. But yeah: the idea of Patton wearing black lab assistant’s garb, with a big mound of silver hair and a spitcurl…? It was just really funny to me, in a visual / cross-referential / meta kind of way.

Hodgson approached Oswalt with the idea, and needless to say, Oswalt was all in.

It’s not too different from the way Day was cast as new villain Kinga, daughter of Dr. Clayton Forrester.

Oswalt and Day join Hampton Yount and Baron Vaughn, who’ll voice Crow and Servo respectively. Nerdist’s Jonah Ray is expected to be the new host.

Of course, none of this casting will be 100% finalized until after the Kickstarter campaign has ended. The campaign has long since passed the initial goal of $2 million for 3 new episodes, but Hodgson’s now got his eye on earning $5.5 million for a full season of 12 episodes. At present, the tally stands at $3.45 million earned with 10 days to go. To get more details, or to contribute, head over to Kickstarter.

Matt Reeves directing Let Me In

Matt Reeves last helmed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and is now in the middle of shooting War for the Planet of the Apes, but his next project could finally get him away from those damn dirty apes. Reeves is producing the thriller Spring Offensive, with an eye toward possibly directing once his Ape-related commitments are done.

Mario Kart Competition TV Show

If you grew up with an older sibling and a video game system, you probably spent a lot of time watching that sibling play the game, because that’s just how the hierarchy of household fun works. And if you’re anxious to relive the pure fun of watching someone else play a video game, then you’ll be happy to hear about this new Mario Kart competition TV series coming to Disney XD this month.
