According to executive producer George Lucas, Red Tails is “as close as you’ll ever get to [Star Wars] Episode VII.” So it seems appropriate that seven minutes of the film have made their way online for your viewing pleasure.
The action epic, over two-decades in the making, is directed by Anthony Hemingway and sports a super-impressive cast such as Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Bryan Cranston, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Method Man, Andre Royo, Ne-Yo and Michael B. Jordan, just to name a few. It tells the inspirational story of the Tuskeegee Airman and is the first non-Star Wars or Indiana Jones film LucasFilm has released in almost two decades.
After the jump, watch seven minutes of Red Tails as well as an interview with George Lucas from The Daily Show with Jon Stewart where he talks about why the studios didn’t want to make the film, how it’s similar to Star Wars and the fact that he has both a prequel and sequel already in his head.

The Avengers teaser trailer coming online Tuesday will feature footage no one has seen yet. How can we be sure?

So to get pumped for your first official look at footage from Joss Whedon‘s The Avengers starring Robert Downey, Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner and Samuel L. Jackson, check out the preview of the preview after the jump. Read More »
Ben Stiller made his return to hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend, his first hosting gig on the show since 1998. And he brought Derek Zoolander with him. It’s not exactly a ten-year celebration of the 2001 release of Zoolander, but until those oft-discussed plans for a sequel actually bear fruit, it’ll have to do. Check out the character’s appearance below. Read More »
After seeing the trailer for Touch, I officially have a new show I’m excited to watch. The latest show from Heroes creator Tim Kring stars Kiefer Sutherland, back on Fox after 24, as the father of a young mute boy who has some kind of superhuman ability to predict the future through patterns in numbers and the universe. It sort of looks like Numbers meets Lost , or Knowing meets The X-Files. Also featuring Danny Glover and Titus Welliver, Touch has already been picked up for at least 13 episodes that will air Spring 2012 and you can get your first look at it after the jump. Read More »
The fact that The Walking Dead is coming back next week is, without a doubt, exciting. It’s not as exciting, though, when you realize that means this Sunday is the fourth season finale of Breaking Bad.
Just when you thought AMC’s award-winning show couldn’t get any better, show runner Vince Gilligan delivers a season that has pretty much seen our two main characters, Walt and Jesse, almost on totally different shows, each going through their own personal hell as things slowly spiral out of control. Star Bryan Cranston was on Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast Thursday and dropped some insane teases about Sunday’s finale plus, Hitfix got their hands on the first minute of the episode. We’ve got all of that after the break.
But if millionaire meth magicians with their lives on the line isn’t your thing, you should still click below the jump. That’s where you can see a hilarious trailer for the return of everyone’s favorite MTV cartoon Beavis and Butthead from the mind of Mike Judge. Read More »

No, you didn’t get a touch of space madness watching The Simpsons Sunday night. Matt Groening and company just happened to commision another famous artist to animate their own couch gag. We’ve already seen Banksy’s take but there’s a possibility John Kricfalusi‘s might be even more disturbing. Kricfalusi is best known for his hit 1990s Nickelodeon series Ren & Stimpy and has since been doing music videos and various other animated work. However, his Simpsons couch gag probably came as a wild surprise to old and new fans alike.
After the jump, watch the gag itself, see some of the sketches from it and read parts of an interview Kricfalusi did about how the whole thing came about. Read More »
