  1. Dante Basco Can’t Escape The Legacy of Rufio. Bangarang! [VIDEO]

    Almost Totally Excellent

    I'm sure that actor Dante Basco has learned by now that once you play a fan favorite like Hook's Rufio, it's hard to shake the role, and I can only assume this is the trajectory of every audition Basco attends, including his Avatar: The Last Airbender audition, down to the gleeful humming. Really, though, the takeaway here is that YouTube comedians The Younger Statesmen know what the internet wants, and that at least one of Basco's auditions, way back in 1990, was actually like this.

  2. Disney Characters Catch ‘Em All In These Clever Pokémon Trainer Illustrations

    Together At Last

    Artist Krista Nicholson's bright, exciting illustrations of Disney characters are almost too cute. Nicholson has definitely managed to slip some perfect pairing in there, from Vanellope and Jigglypuff to the adorable, but destructive, pairing of Stitch and Pikachu. Even Magikarp finds a Disney character to swim around with! You can see more of Nicholson's art, featuring more Disney characters and Pokémon, at her Deviantart account.

  3. CoverGirl Emphasizes Capitol Decadence For Their Hunger Games Makeup Line

    May the Odds Be Ever in Your Favor

    The image above represents the luxury of District 1 in the new Hunger Games CoverGirl cosmetics line, which will be released in October of this year in anticipation of the new Hunger Games: Catching Fire film to be released in November. The line of cosmetics is much more extensive than the nail polish line released for the first film, and reportedly features nail polish, nail decals, mascara, and lip gloss, among other items. The makeup was even used on the stars in the film, so the trailer may give you a better idea of what to expect. Head past the break for two more photos from the campaign.

    Excelsior!

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier may not have a poster or trailer yet, but we now have a good idea of what Steve Rogers will be facing in his third big screen appearance. Marvel has released a plot summary for the upcoming film, giving us a bit more information on the involvement of SHIELD and how the film connects to The Avengers. Plus, actors Cobie Smulders and Anthony Mackie have contributed to the news with their own information on how Captain America: The Winter Soldier is its own unique Marvel film.

  5. Learn About The San Diego Comic-Con Anti-Bullying Summit From Some Geeky Writers, Actors, and Activists [VIDEO]

    Consider the Following

    The first Anti-Bullying Summit for San Diego Comic-Con was held this year, showcasing a good number wonderful, nerdy individuals talking about the need to stop bullying and sharing their own experiences with the Con. With all the division and bullying even among members of the same fandom, it's great to see a Comic-Con International event dedicated to targeting the problem of bullying among kids and adults alike, and to preventing bullying in the future. Check out Nerdist's feature on the summit, which includes creators, actor, voice actors, and activists (many will be familiar to our readers) sharing their reasons for helping make the first of hopefully more Anti-Bullying Summits possible.

  6. Gina Carano Wants A Wonder Woman Movie, And She Wants It Done Right

    Today in Awesome

    "That's the ultimate superhero for a woman. No matter what, no matter who ends up being Wonder Woman someday, I just hope it's something that is done correctly. I know it's there and that it could definitely be done correctly. It's just a matter of getting the right people and having the right vision come together. A director and producer and writer have to see the beauty in it and make it real." Actress and mixed martial artist Gina Carano on the need for a Wonder Woman film. Carano, who herself would fit the role quite well in many fans minds, weighed in on the discussion as to whether Diana should take to the big screen in an interview with ComingSoon.net. Carano has previously appeared in Fast & Furious 6 and Steven Soderbergh's Haywire. She can soon be seen in In the Blood, a thriller where she plays a woman who must rescue her husband after he disappears during their honeymoon.

  7. This Portrait Of Adventure Time‘s Ice King And Gunter Is Emotional

    Oh Mah Glob Guys

    The Ice King's journey from the caring human Simon Petrikov to an insane, lonely wizard with no memory of his past is possibly the most tragic aspect of Adventure Time, which we all know is surprisingly horrifying to begin with. Artist James Hance is no doubt aware of this fact, and created this painting, titled "I Remember You," either to pay tribute to The Ice King's story and his relationship with Marceline the Vampire Queen, or to make me want to cry at work. Tom Kenny, the voice of the Ice King, even weighed in on the portrait of Simon and penguin-companion Gunter, saying,

  8. Clones Are People Too: The Science and Science Fiction of BBC America’s Orphan Black

    Essay

    As BBC America's Orphan Black heads into its second season, many critics have focused on Tatiana Maslany’s supremely impressive feats of acting and the many compelling female characters as the draw of the series. If you haven’t watched the show, you’ve still likely heard that the lead actress plays no fewer than seven distinct characters, just in the first season. However, Orphan Black also stands out as a piece of science fiction, and it does so in a very relevant manner. The series is a distinctly modern science fiction story and focuses on two crucial themes: individuality and gene patenting. By posing serious questions about humanity, Orphan Black serves as an effective analogue for real life events, which elevates its science fiction status. Read on to find out how the show is reflecting our society, perceived stereotypes, and why they're way ahead of the sci-fi game.

  9. Arrow Executive Producer Explains How The Flash TV Show Will Share Their Universe

    Consider the Following

    When DC and CW announced that they would pursue a The Flash television series that not only drew on the success of current CW offering Arrow, but took place in the same universe, certain questions arose. If Arrow does take place in the same universe as the new Flash series, how will the show runners deal with the relatively super-powerless world of Arrow? Why did the CW put Amazon, their planned Wonder Woman show, on hold for the new Flash series? Will Arrow and the new Flash show cross over at any point after The Flash gets his own show? Well, two of these questions now have answers, thanks to Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

  10. A Trailer For Studio Ghibli’s The Wind Rises, Now With English Subtitles!

    What It Says On the Tin

    Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises has been described as a more grown up Studio Ghibli tale, focusing on Jiro Horikoshi, an airplane designer in the first half of the 20th century. Those of us unfortunate enough to not understand Japanese, however, have had to wait to see the full impact of the predictably gorgeous footage from the new film, until now. The Wind Rises will be shown at the Venice Film Festival, and soon after at the Toronto International Film Festival, prompting the release of this english-subtitled version of the trailer to give us a good idea of what we're looking forward to.
