"A peek at the sets for 30 Rock‘s upcoming live show inspires great confidence that the show’s sophomore live performance will prove to be a memorable one."
"The Avengers are Earth's mightiest heroes: a viking god, a bipolar nerd, an alcoholic weapons dealer and the living symbol of a country that has to borrow numbers from China in order to measure its obesity rate. This month, Man Comics is retelling the Avengers' incredible origin story -- a tale so filled with virility that it would be impolite to start reading it without warning your woman's entry points."
"The must-carry rules, regulated by the Federal Communications Commission, give broadcast TV stations the right to have their signals carried on the cable systems in their local markets.
"Eliminating the rules would allow cable operators to refuse to carry the signals, likely tossing off many religious, smaller independent and foreign-language stations."
"I have some terrific news: I understood every word that Bane said. It should be noted that the theater I was in featured some of the most advanced technology in the projection industry, so I don’t know if they changed the audio or if it was just the presentation, but it did raise my confidence in that aspect of the film."
"Black dubbed the movie a "technological thriller" and a "crisis movie" set in the world of "international war, arms and terror" saying that they will "put Tony Stark through the wringer" as they explore the trials of being Tony Stark. Although no villain has been revealed for the film, he said the villain will be one that will "frighten in today's world.""
"Now, over a decade later, Gendel has turned back to the story of Picard and the lost civilization of Kataan with “The Outer Light” – a webcomic being released over the next few weeks that continues Picard’s story."
"One industry observer next to me said afterwards, “It was like seeing Live From The Met at IMAX. Kinda cold.” Another three-time Oscar winner in attendance who has worked on innumerable classic films told me later, “I think we should let him finish it and see what it’s like then, but it seems a little like the look of a soap opera”. Still another media member thought it looked “extraordinary” but felt the high-defness of it all would deeply divide moviegoers, especially those who like the grain of film."
"The 37 year old star was informed by a fan that his page on the encyclopedia site had been altered, with his birthdate changed to 997988 Bc and his job titles listed as "DJ, producer and oldest living man ever".
"Director James Bobin and writer Nicholas Stoller are set to return behind the camera, though Jason Segel will not be back as the star."
"Chewing gum and wearing sunglasses, the Rev. Al Green dropped into a large white-leather chair here at his office adjacent to the Full Gospel Tabernacle Church, where he has ministered for the past 36 years. The soul singer and songwriter recently made news when President Barack Obama crooned the opening line of his 1971 hit "Let's Stay Together" during a fund-raiser at New York's Apollo Theater."
"Fox has released 21 new images from Ridley Scott's Prometheus, revealing just as much as it still hides from the film that will hopefully rock our cinematic worlds once it arrives in theaters on June 8."
