A case for Murray and Scully? Flight Of The Conchords’ Rhys Darby joins The X Files


The first teaser trailer for The X Files has been unveiled and it looks like Agents Mulder and Scully are looking for more than just the truth.

But we’re totally more excited about the news that Rhys Darby will be joining David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in the highly-anticipated return of the sci-fi series.

You might be asking ‘who the hell is Rhys Darby?’, to which we would reply ‘only one of the funniest guys to have graced our TV screens in the last ten years!’

Rhys is best known for his role in Flight Of The Conchords as band manager Murray, who pretty much stole EVERY scene he was in.

Hello Kitty movie slated for 2019 release worldwide


It’s been a bit of a rough year for the kingpins of Japanese cuteness over at Sanrio Co. The mega-hit Frozen has been taking up a sizable share of the merchandising market regularly occupied by their geometric kitties and bunnies causing overseas income to slide by as much as 14.5 percent compared to the previous year.

Hello Kitty fans needn’t worry, however. That’s hardly enough to put the company in jeopardy, but it is causing Miss Kitty to unsheathe her claws and go on the attack. If movies like Frozen are going to cut in on Sanrio’s turf, well then, Sanrio will just have to return the favor.

So get ready, because the Hello Kitty movie is already in the works!

Ricky Gervais to make The Office movie without Stephen Merchant


The Office - Series 2 Picture Shows:  Ricky Gervais as David Brent Series Two of the BAFTA winning comedy, the painfully accurate portrait of the modern work-place that leaves you either counting your blessings or questioning your career. David Brent tries to assimilate the new Swindon intake, a group of well-trained and highly motivated personnel. It should be an easy job. Sadly, someone forgot to tell them they're meant to laugh at everything David says. Unlucky-in-love Tim finds his fortune changing, we discover there's more to demure Dawn than first meets the eye, but there's even less to Gareth. Going solo. Ricky Gervais will bring back David Brent, but Stephan Merchant won’t be joining him. (Picture: BBC)

The spin-off film based around former-office manager David Brent is set to go ahead, but without one half of the team behind the award-winning TV series it’s based on.

According to The Sun, Ricky Gervais is going ahead with the movie – titled Life on the Road – but there is no room for Stephen Merchant.

‘Ricky has every right to do a David Brent movie on his own but fans will understandably be gutted to have it confirmed that Stephen is not involved at all.’ a source said.

Although the spin-off was announced a while ago, with Gervais enthusiastically talking up the project, there has been no official announcement as to whether Merchant be involved.

Twelve years ago, David Brent (Ricky Gervais) was a regional manager for a mid-level paper merchants.  In Summer 2016, get ready to see him on the big screen as he chases fame and fortune in LIFE ON THE ROAD.

As he assembles a group of mercenary session musicians, a talented sidekick for street cred and an overpriced yet underwhelmed tour manager, he embarks upon a self-financed UK tour coming to a venue near every major city near you. Ricky Gervais says, "Iím so excited that the world will see what David Brent is up to now and where his future lies. This film delves much more into his private life than The Office ever did and we really get to peel back the layers of this extraordinary, ordinary man." LIFE ON THE ROAD is directed, written by and stars Ricky Gervais as David Brent, one of the worldís best-loved comedy characters.  With original music by Ricky GervaisÖ.and not to mention a few of the classics - Free Love Freeway and Equality Street, this movie will do for every mid-level sales rep with a dream of becoming a rock god as what the Rolling Stones did for rock íní roll!

The Fantastic Four Trailer is Out

I wasn’t even aware this movie was in production. It’s a reboot. Seems like all the super hero movies are coming out this year. I wasn’t that wowed by the trailer but the lead actor (Mike Teller) is the boy from ‘Whiplash’. There’s also Michael B Jordan who also starred in a high calibre movie ‘Fruitvale Station’.

Superman Declared a ‘False God’ in Official Batman v Superman Trailer

This movie sounds more amazing to me than Star Wars. Keen to watch it and I like the dark theme.


After a rough cut leaked earlier in the day, Warner Bros. released the first official trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice on Friday. In it, Superman is declared a “false God” by pundits. And just when the hero may be getting too big for his spandex, in comes Ben Affleck, clad in all black as Batman (with glowing eyes!) ready to make Superman bleed.

The movie, based on the DC Comics, hits theaters March 25, 2016.

Star Wars Trailer

I think many fans have been waiting for this. It’s huge business and I wonder what records it will break at the box office.

And here’s the 1977 Original Trailer which is far more fascinating for me. Back then, as a little kid, I didn’t understand it at all, but it definitely looked futuristic in a compelling way.
