The Trailer for Disney’s Descendants Is Your Goth Teen Dream and/or Nightmare

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, will this movie suck or enthral?

The new Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants follows the teen kids of Disney's most infamous villains—Jafar, the Evil Queen, Cruella, and Maleficent—as they're sent away from home to a "preppy school" for the first time. If fourteen-year-old alt-kid me had seen this, I would have been all over it.

Senshi and spectres and saviors, oh my!

In my book, there are few cozier ways to spend a Sunday morning than perusing the internet in search of good art. Today's find is the work of artist Jenn So, who sells fannish prints and other goodies at her Society6 shop. I'm especially partial to the Lara Croft one. I also recommend looking very, very closely at the sheep in the last pic featured here.

The “Potent” New Influence Of Women’s Wallets On Hollywood

Paranormal Activity? Apparently that's on us, ladies.

When I'm being optimistic, it feels like there was a slight shift this summer in the way Hollywood perceived women. True, Marvel still fiddle-faddled over a female-led movie, but there was cause for celebration, too: Scarlett Johansson proved her massive box-office draw, the Expendabelles movie progressed with casting news, and Columbia Pictures wants to make a female Ghostbusters reboot. So what caused this small increase in representation?

Hail Hydra, I guess.

In the past few months Amazon has very publicly made enemies with several of its business partners, but the online retailer isn't done sullying its image--fans hoping to order titles such Maleficent, Muppets Most Wanted or Captain America: The Winter Soldier from Amazon are out of luck, at least until Disney cries "uncle."

Rad Concept Art Re-Designs of Maleficent (And Also Kitty Pride) Show Us What Could Have Been

Oh dear, what an awesome situation.

Conceptual artists Jerad S. Marantz  and Kelton Cram have two things in common: they both worked on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, and they both really enjoy drawing Angelina Jolie with various types of badass horns on her head. You're going to want to see this, because as gorgeous as Maleficent looked in the Disney film, we simply cannot get enough of lady horns.
