Last year, Simpsons executive producer Al Jean told fans they’d be killing off a character in the upcoming season. He even gave a tease of who it may be, hinting the person voicing that character won an Emmy for voicing that character. At the time, we tried to narrow it down but the season came and went without that death. The reason was the tragic passing of voice actor Marcia Wallace, who voiced Ms. Krabapple. The Simpsons team thought gracefully killing that character as a tribute to Wallace was enough death for one year.
That was last year. This year, Jean promises the previously hinted character will still die, and even added to his initial hint. Read the quotes about the Simpsons character death below. Read More »

Even as we’re still talking about the backstory that led to Edgar Wright‘s abrupt departure from Marvel’s Ant-Man, it seems that Wright is pushing forward towards his next film. Reportedly, that project is likely to be Baby Driver, an original script from Wright that the director originally started talking about back in 2009. Back then, he called it “not an adaptation or anything, or a sequel to anything else.” After the Ant-Man kerfuffle, that probably seems incredibly appealing. Read More »

Ever since the release of the popular ’90s cartoon, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were characterized as party guys. They were a wild bunch of teenagers who loved pizza and music, who just happened to be both ninjas and turtles. In 1991, the group was forever linked to pop rap thanks to Vanilla Ice. At the climax of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze, then super-popular rapper was featured with a song called “Ninja Rap.” Almost 25 years later, the song endures as a guilty pleasure and a window into a very specific moment in pop culture.
So it makes perfect sense (maybe? sort of?) that the filmmakers want their very own rap anthem for the new, rebooted Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. That song is now out. It’s called “Shell Shocked” and its by Juicy J, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign featuring Kill The Noise & Madsonik. Does it reach the status of “Ninja Rap?” Listen to the new Ninja Turtles rap below.

And before you roll your eyes, a new trailer has been revealed that’s as exciting and Star Wars-y as you’d hope it could be.
