Mother of science fiction (well, one of them) Mary Shelley, writer of Frankenstein, is getting the Shakespeare In Love treatment courtesy of Wadjda director Haifaa al-Mansour. Calling it right now: Ben Affleck for Lord Byron.
Kids these days with their Vines and their murder.
Maisie Williams is generally regarded as the Game of Thrones' cast Queen of Vine. Can Aimee Richardson be the Princess?
The Harry Potter feels we have never really leave us.
I hear the word "parody" and I expect funny. I don't expect gut-wrenching pain. But that's what Potterhood—a trailer for the Harry Potter movies done in the style of Richard Linklater's Boyhood, which followed its young star for 12 years—gave me. He doesn't wanna be a hero-OO-OO-WAAAAAAAHHHHHH.
Bilbo, don't hold Sting like that. You'll blunt the blade.
Confession: I haven’t watched the The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies trailer yet, because once—just once—I want to see a trailer for the first time on the big screen. Makes me all nostalgic just to think of it. All that is to say that in my trailerless state my excitement for the final movie in the Hobbit trilogy hasn't quite ramped up to 11 yet, but these new pics are getting me there. Hey, Bard. ;)

"READ THE BOOKS if you don't want to be spoil—oh God, she's coming. Run away. RUN AWAAAAAY."
Not all book readers, mind you. Just the ones who spoil things for non-book readers because "LOLOL, they're not spoilers if the books have been out for years!" You know who you are.

Chris Pratt Surprised Kids At a NYC Screening of Guardians of the Galaxy Last Night, Gave the Cutest Q&A Ever
Can't handle it.
The New York Daily News has done advance screenings of Marvel movies before where they got special guest stars to show up, meet the kids in the audience, and do a Q&A. And nothing against Robert Downey Jr. or Tom Hiddleston, whom I sure are very nice gentlemen in real life, but holy Jesus. I got to attend the Guardians of the Galaxy screening last night, featuring special guest star Chris Pratt, and I think my teeth might still be rotting.
No one has ever deserved a flower crown more.
The second season of Avatar: The Last Airbender starts us off with some new drama and a new character, Zuko's sister Azula. Readers. Friends. I think I'm in love.
