A new trailer has been posted for Transformers: Combiner Wars, a new cartoon miniseries that takes a darker and edgier look at the Transformers series.
The Autobots and Decepticons have disbanded and returned to Cybertron. With the days of Optimus Prime and Megatron over, Cybertron is now ruled by a triumvirate. However, an ancient technology has enabled a new threat, the power for multiple Transformers to combine into one massive, dangerous form: Combiners. Who will stand-up to this threat to ensure that the fragile peace that was 4 million years in the making remains?
Stream the full 8 episode series starting Aug. 2!
The series certainly looks amazing and you can check out the trailer below.
Hi everyone! Shelli Anpan here to bring you a peek inside the halls of San Diego Diego Comic-Con (SDCC), the largest pop culture convention in the United States.
Originally geared towards the comic and graphic novel aficionados, SDCC has since grown over the past several decades to encompass all forms of art and geekdom, including (but not limited to) TV shows, big budget movies, video games, and detailed replicas. To learn more about SDCC and its history, click here.
With almost 24-hour programming, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed when attending a convention of this magnitude. To narrow it down a bit this year, here are my Top 5 for Day 1:
#TheHallofFaces All 4 Days, L Street Fine Art Gallery
As a huge fan of the Game of Thrones television series, this is definitely a must-see. Going off of the listed description, “The Hall of Faces activation will allow guests to enter the House of Black and White and ‘Become No One’.” Praise to the many-faced god!
#SuperheroIRL 6:30PM – 7:30PM, Room 24ABC
Everyone has encountered bullying in some way, shape, or form in their life, inspiring writers and artists to create (super)heroes to overcome them. Nonprofit Pop Culture Hero Coalition harnesses the idea of the superhero and applies those ideals to the real world. With the advent of Internet and prevalence of cyber-bullying and recent physical attacks around the globe, heroes in the real world are needed now more than ever to stand up and be beacons of hope and strength against the bullying, against the hatred.
“Geek Couture” Fashion Show 6PM – 8PM, Harbor Ballroom, Manchester Grand Hyatt
Although I probably will not be able to attend the Fashion Show as it conflicts with the #SuperheroIRL panel, I still can’t wait to see what beautiful works of wearable art will be showcased this year!
CBLDF: Navigating The Powers & Perils of Banned Books 12PM – 1PM, Room 30CDE
Ever wonder why graphic novels are attacked by censors? This panel will discuss just that and and how to successfully integrate them into the classroom.
Last, but not least, I’m super excited for exploring the Exhibit Hall! For all first-time con-goers, the Exhibit Hall is where you’ll find all the popular, rare, and exclusive paraphernalia you could ever desire. These include comic books, original fine artwork on canvas, highly detailed sculpted collectible figures, video games, apparel, and accessories. SDCC is well-known for their w exclusive merch, which can only be purchased at the convention. Of course, you’ll probably be able to find that special exclusive on eBay later for an arm and a leg.
That’s all for now, but to get live news and visual within the con, follow me on Twitter (@ShelliAnpan)!
Are you going to SDCC? Do you wish that you could go? Tweet at me and let me know what you want to see, and I’ll do my best to take you there!
Legendary Entertainment has acquired the rights to make a Pokémon movie. Their first planned project is a film based on Detective Pikachu which is to be fast tracked into production
On the heels of Pokemon Go fever, Legendary has closed a deal for the film rights for the iconic Japanese property.
Legendary and The Pokemon Co. on Wednesday announced that they will launch the first Pokemon live-action film franchise based on Detective Pikachu, a new character in the Pokemon universe.
Details on the plot and story of the character are being kept under wraps. The film will be fast-tracked to start production in 2017.
While Pokémon has had many movies based on the franchise, it will be interesting to see a western take on the series, especially with Detective Pikachu as a film project. Detective Pikachu tells the story of a Pikachu who has learned to speak human language and solves mysteries with his human sidekick. There was a fan campaign at one point for the English localization to have Danny DeVito as the voice of the lead character
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Telltale Games have announced a new title today. Batman – The Telltale Series is set to release in August for digital download for PC/Mac, consoles, iOS, and Android. On September 16, the game will release on a “season pass disc.” The physical copy of the game will include the first five episodes of the series and will credit the disc owner with digital downloads of the next four episodes which will be available at a later date. The art style of the game will resemble comic book art through a very distinct cel shading process and will be voiced by the top voice actors in the game industry, most notably Troy Baker as Bruce Wayne. Other voice talents include: Travis Willingham as Harvey Dent, Erin Yvette as Vicki Vale, Enn Reitel as Alfred Pennyworth, Murphy Guyer as Lieutenant James Gordon, Richard McGonagle as Carmine Falcone, and Laura Bailey as Selina Kyle.
Early this morning, Entertainment Weekly debuted 4 new photos from the new Wonder Woman movie to be released next summer. The pictures were released a week prior to Comic-Con as part of a special Comic-Con issue of Entertainment Weekly.
Wonder Woman is directed by Patty Jenkins and will be an origin story for Diana Prince. The movie will take place during World War I. Chris Pine (seen below) co-stars as Diana’s love interest Steve Trevor.
After Wonder Woman releases in June 2017, Gal Gadot will go on to appear in Justice League which is set to be released the following November and is already in production.
Today Blizzard released another Overwatch short, this time featuring the two samurai Genji and Hanzo. In the short we get more backstory on the rivalry between them and why Hanzo hates Genji so much. Is it because his robot suit looks cooler than his sweet robot kicks? Watch the video to find out!
Hot off the heels of the Force Awaken release, last Thursday on Good Morning America, Disney released a teaser trailer for the next movie in line for the Star Wars universe, Rouge One. This new story in the Star Wars universe will be set shortly before the events of A New Hope, where a group of Rebel spies are on a mission to steal the plans for the Empire’s new weapon, the Death Star.
Apple announced two new products this week, and while I was hoping for another version of the Apple Watch, we got the next best thing; two new Apple devices. Now the when the 6s details started coming to light, one of the things rumored was a smaller iPhone 6; and when the iPhone 6s finally came out a smaller screen was nowhere to be seen. Just a few months later, many are happy with Apple’s announcement with iPhone 6 SE. The SE is something special that embodies qualities of both the iPhone 5 and 6s.
The specs of the SE are definitely top notch for a phone this size, including almost all of the upgrades Apple made to the 6s, with the exception of 3D touch.
Some specs include:
A9 chip with 64-bit architecture
12-megapixel iSight camera
True Tone flash
4K video recording at 30fps
Starting price for the SE begins at $399 for the 16gb version to $499 for 64gbs. While you’re getting a great deal on what is pretty much a 6s at a cheaper price, 16gbs is pretty underwhelming when you consider how big apps,photos, videos and music is.
