DuckTales

If you were a kid growing up in the ’80s and ’90s with access to American television, I’d guess there’s about a 50% chance that you know the DuckTales theme song by heart. Here’s how ubiquitous it was: I didn’t even watch the show and I still somehow managed to absorb every word of it.

Good news for those who anyone who still has that kicking around in your head after all these years: you don’t have to relearn any lyrics for the new version of DuckTales that’s coming to Disney XD. The network has released the new main titles of the show, which features an updated take on the classic theme song, as well as an official premiere date for when Scrooge, Donald, Huey, Dewey, and Louie will be heading to the small screen.

There hasn’t been enough inebriated action coming from Walt Disney Pictures, but that will change soon now that a new Pirates of the Caribbean sequel is arriving in theaters this summer.

‘American Gods’ Clip: Meet Mr. Mr. Nancy

Mr. Nancy American Gods

It seems like most of us who watched American Gods this past Sunday are already finding ourselves engrossed in the ambitious Starz series. With the Neil Gaiman adaptation, co-creators Bryan Fuller and Michael Green took their time introducing Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), Mr. Wednesday (Ian McShane), and Bilquis (Yetide Badaki) in a character-driven and atmospheric pilot. They got fantastic introductions – giving us a clear sense of who they are, not so much what they want.

On the next episode of American Gods, the brewing war between the old gods and the new may get more attention, but there’s still a few key new players to introduce, such as Mr. Nancy/Anansi, played by Orlando Jones. Below, you can watch his introduction in a new American Gods clip.

Alien Covenant Promos

The crew aboard the Covenant are in for one rude awakening. They’re all hopeful for their colony expedition and ready to start new lives, but what they don’t see coming are Xenomorphs, chest bursters, and your friendly neighborhood homicidal droid, David (Michael Fassbender). Daniels (Katherine Waterson) and friends are mostly doomed, but they don’t know that yet in some new Alien: Covenant promos, which features the film’s heroine and Captain Oram (Billy Crudup) sending messages back home intercut with some found footage of everything going to hell.

Trumped Trailer

While some would prefer that entertainment and politics stay separated, we live in a world where they frequently intersect. This is even more true when it comes to looking at the genre of documentary films, and a new one that just premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival this past week is certainly going to stir up some heated discussions.

Trumped: Inside the Greatest Political Upset of All Time hails from directors Ted Bourne, Mary Robertson and Banks Tarver, who assembled footage that was originally shot for the Showtime docu-series The Circus, but ended up being used for a feature length documentary film about the 2016 election. Specifically, this documentary focuses on how Donald Trump won by way of a chronicle of his campaign, from the primaries through the debates up until he was elected as the 45th President of the United States of America.

Better Call Saul Season 3 - Giancarlo Esposito as Gus Fring

Better Call Saul hasn’t exactly been subtle with its hints that Breaking Bad baddie Gus Fring would come knocking in the very near future. Last week, they went so far as to release a Los Pollos Hermanos “commercial” featuring Giancarlo Esposito back in character. But it’s only now they’ve finally gone and made it official. Yes, Gus Fring will be in Better Call Saul season 3 — and it sounds like he’ll be giving Mike Ehrmentraut (Jonathan Banks) something to chew on.

The first Better Call Saul clip, however, has nothing to do with chicken or drugs or Gus Fring whatsoever. Instead, it checks in on Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) and Kim Wexler (Rhea Seehorn), who seem to be feeling a little awkward about the way things went down in season two.

Best of Carrie Fisher

It’s still shocking to think about, but American treasure Carrie Fisher is no longer with us. She has been continuously remembered and mourned by her friends and colleagues since news of her passing was reported yesterday. Meanwhile, her fans have nothing but love and respect to give as well, not just for her career in entertainment, but for her honest, helpful voice discussing mental illness, alcoholism, and drug abuse.

Even though we didn’t know Carrie Fisher, it’s easy for us to feel like we did having experienced her bright personality for decades. Therefore, it’s important to remember at her best. While we know all about her best moments on film in Star Wars, When Harry Met Sally, The Blues Brothers and more, there are plenty of other shining moments that give us infinitely more reasons to love the best of Carrie Fisher.

Westworld Season Finale Clip

The season finale of Westworld is just a couple days away, and soon we’ll get to see how many of the ever-growing list of theories about the show actually turn out to be true. The most recent episode of Westworld already confirmed one major theory that has been kicking around since the season premiere, and the finale will likely confirm or debunk the popular but controversial theory that Jimmi Simpson‘s character William is actually a younger version of Ed Harris‘ character The Man in Black.

While we wait for the 90-minute season season finale to hit HBO on Sunday, series executive producer J.J. Abrams stopped by The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night to tease what he calls a “crazy” conclusion to the first season, and he even brought a clip from the finale to hold us over.
