Pennywise Lends a Hand in New It Photos

USA Today posted three new photos from director Andres Muschietti's adaptation of Stephen King's It. I loved the original and hope this one is as good, but with its own unique take at the same time. Check out a couple more pictures after the jump and some info on the movie.

Dead Men Tell No Tales in New Pirates of the Caribbean Trailer

I've never been a huge fan of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. They've always been forgettable fun and popcorn fodder for me. The one I found most enjoyable is the one everyone else doesn't care for, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It was the shortest of the films and didn't seem to drag on and meander around when it came to getting to the point. The thing I'm most excited for in regards to Dead Men Tell No Tales is the Paul McCartney cameo we're supposed to get. After the jump, you can check out the new trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Comic Book Review: Detective Comics #953

Batman's motley crew is dragged through shards of glass in part three of the "League of Shadows" story arc. Detective Comics #953 is an emotionally challenging plunge into pain and misery as Cassandra Cain discovers who her mother is and Batwoman is taken down in front of her father. Christian Duce and Fernando Blanco's images of an overworked Batman with a five o'clock shadow perfectly captures the intensity and sense of urgency James Tynion IV's storyline demands.

Aqualad Returns to Teen Titans!

I've popped in and out of the Teen Titans comic series over the years. They're always an enjoyable read and I'm sure they appeal to young adult readers and seem culturally relevant to the readership the title is geared to. Whether it be relationship drama, personal issues or crises, or just battling the latest super-villain, the Titans always come out on top in the end. DC All Access talks to writer Benjamin Percy about his current run penning the series and you can see the latest episode after the jump.

Event Review: Dallas Retrospective - March 23rd, 2017

In 1980, every Friday night in my house was a television event. The Dukes of Hazzard aired at 7:00 PM and gave us all some good laughs while we ate our Golden Fried Chicken. At 8:00 PM, things got serious. The familiar sounds of the Dallas theme music rang throughout my living room and I was no longer in Austin, TX. I had traveled to that great city, where drama and backstabbing ruled supreme.

Comic Book Review: KISS #6

KISS #6 throws us into the stress-inducing aftermath of the startling revelation we were given last issue. Let me just say that writer Amy Chu persists in heightening the stakes and keeping our blood pressure levels elevating. I absolutely love the way she intertwines the band's lyrics with the storyline, as if KISS were prophesying the unfolding events decades before they happened through their songs. Kewber Baal's artwork is still tantalizing and keeps the reader energetically flipping pages up to the very end.

VIDEO: Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray Talk Dallas Retrospective

Winspear Opera House and the AT & T Performing Arts Center hosted a press conference about the Dallas Retrospective for a select few reporters and news sources on Wednesday, March 22nd and I was invited to be there. Patrick Duffy (Bobby Ewing) and Linda Gray (Sue Ellen) were on hand to give us all a sneak peek at what audiences have to look forward to when they hit the stage on Thursday night for J.R. Ewing Bourbon's Dallas Retrospective. Both Duffy and Gray were eager to answer questions about the legacy of the show, why it still resonates with fans, and if we might ever get any closure to that season three cliffhanger we were left with when the Dallas reboot was abruptly canceled. You can get more information on the Dallas Retrospective and see the entire press conference after the jump.

New Valerian Sneak Peek from Luc Besson

Director Luc Besson treated fans to a sneak peek of the upcoming trailer for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets on his Twitter in celebration of his birthday. I've liked most everything I've seen from Luc Besson, so I have no reason to believe I won't be impressed with this. After the jump, you can check out the teaser video and get more info on the movie.

DVD Review: Incarnate

Incarnate is a ridiculously ludicrous and seemingly never-ending possession film filled with every recycled and clich├ęd component you would expect from the sub-genre. The movie's only saving grace is its attempt at blending mind-bending Inception concepts with typical The Exorcist elements. It's completely confused as to what its trying to convey in its science versus religion versus science conflict of the mind and soul. Most of Aaron Eckhart's dialogue seems written specifically to be included in a trailer to sell the film to anyone gullible enough to watch it (which obviously worked with me). In the end, Incarnate is still a waste of time with really nothing redemptive to take away from it.

Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal Find Life Lethal

Moviegoers can get prepared this weekend for the coming of Alien: Covenant by taking in what appears to be another retread of all the same ground we've already covered in countless other sc-fi flicks. In Daniel Espinosa's Life, we discover another alien lifeform. The alien systematically kills off a crew one by one. It even looks like it can infect or possess a person's body from hints in the trailer. I don't want to completely disregard a movie from its two minute trailer, so I'll no doubt see this when it hits Blu-ray and hope I'm wrong in the meantime. I'm sure it will feed everyone's appetite for sci-fi horror until we get the real deal from Ridley Scott in May. Check out the trailer after the jump.
