Learn more about the future of Star Wars long-form interconnected storytelling, after the jump.

Starting next week, the Prop Store is letting fans own a piece of Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim. On August 25, an online auction will begin that includes over 300 original props, costumes and set decoration pieces used in the summer blockbuster.

The Expendables 3 is a mostly successful blend of the franchise’s first two films. It’s filled with the wanton mayhem and destruction of the second film, but also plenty of terrible dialogue and overall cheesiness of the first movie. Despite those flaws, the Patrick Hughes sequel works because it’s constantly fun and features a story that builds off the fact the franchise was in danger of getting stale, leading it into a new era. Read the rest of our Expendables 3 review below. Read More »

Its not a secret that I often fiddle around with magic tricks, its been one of my hobbies since I was a kid. It seems to me that Magic is coming into a new renaissance, with big screen movies like Now You See Me (which they are set to make a sequel) and The Incredible Burt Wonderstone (which they won’t be making a sequel), and this year alone has filled my DVR with magic television series, including the magic prank television series The Carbonaro Effect on truTV and Don’t Trust Andrew Mayne on A&E, CW is doing a US airing of the amazing British television series Penn & Teller‘s Fool Us (which will very likely spawn a new season with new episodes), the reboot of Masters of Illusion television specials from my childhood, Dan White‘s White Magic on Travel Network, and Comedy Central recently ordered Sleight of Mouth, a weekly comedy/variety/magic show starring comic/magician and TV host Justin Willman.
But one of the shows I’m most looking forward to is Wizard Wars which will begin airing on SyFy on August 19th at 10pm. The competition reality series pits teams of magicians against each other to invent and create new tricks with a set of constraints (props, rules…etc). I was able to chat with Las Vegas magician and /Film reader Kyle Marlett who appears on the premiere episode. Marlett is a member of the new generation of magicians, he owns up to the nerd/geek label, and has appeared on the Tonight Show and performs magic daily on the Las Vegas Strip. Find out more about Wizard Wars Kyle Marlett in our exclusive interview after the jump.
