Check out all the hot goss from the world of entertainment! Who’s wearing what? Who’s saying what about whom? Where has all the rum gone? I’ll be answering none of these questions but there’s news and trailers if you wanna look at them instead.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D
We finally have our first look at Gabriel Luna as Robbie Reyes in AOS. Rather than using the Johnny Blaze incarnation of Ghost Rider (which didn’t go down so well when Nic Cage played him) we’re getting the Marvel NOW! version. Robbie Reyes drives a muscle car rather than the traditional flaming motorcycle. Check out his sweet driving gloves below.
Some new pictures from the set of spider-man and this time we get a glimpse of one of the villains. It looks like Bokeem Woodbine will be taking up the mantle of The Shocker. It’s interesting that we’re getting another electric based enemy after Jamie Foxx’s Electro in Amazing Spider-Man 2. The costume is spot on though. Click below for bigger pictures and if you’re googling ‘The Shocker’ make sure safe-search is on.
Rob Zombie’s ’31’
Here’s the latest trailer from the madness that is the mind of Rob Zombie.
Mascots is coming to Netflix and it looks like a right old laugh. If you like odd ball mocumentaries then this might be your thing.
Mascots is a new comedy from Christopher Guest, director of Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show. Starring many of his regular troupe of actors, this latest film takes place in the ultra-competitive world of sports mascots where they compete for the most prestigious award in their field, the Gold Fluffy.
The Greasy Strangler
If you like your comedy weirder that Mascots then perhaps this is your thing. I’m warning you now that the trailer is NSFW.
Directed by Jim Hosking, THE GREASY STRANGLER is a surreal, midnight-horror comedy, World Premiered in the 2016 Sundance Film Festival Midnight Section. The Los Angeles-set tale follows Ronnie, a man who runs a Disco Walking tour along with his browbeaten son, Brayden. When a sexy, alluring woman comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attentions. It also signals the appearance of an oily, slimy inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent, soon dubbed ‘The Greasy Strangler.’
