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.

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.
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.

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.

Incarnate is a ridiculously ludicrous and seemingly never-ending possession film filled with every recycled and clichéd 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.
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.

The first thing that will no doubt excite readers is the fact that Batwoman #1 takes our hero out of Gotham City and the country in general. The book kicks off like an intro from one of the James Bond or Mission: Impossible movies. We get action and violence right out of the gate. Blend that with some mystery, intrigue, and personal issues tied to the mission and you've got quite a stellar debut. Did I mention some solid pencil work from artist Steve Epting? Well, I did now!
I've never paid much attention to The Wild Storm world. A few years back I read a book or two and they were entertaining, but never really kept up with it. Warren Ellis is a renowned writer, so I would imagine this relaunch will no doubt be a good read. Check out the newest DC All Access that talks about The Wildsorm: Character Redesigns after the jump.
Just in time to be attached to Beauty and the Beast this weekend, Michael Bay unleashes another trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight. There's new Autobots. There's new Decepticons. There's Dinobots. There's plenty of explosions and action. There's also scrappy teen actor Isabela Moner, doing her very best to make an impression on the millions of ladies (both young and old) flocking to theaters to see the latest rendition of Disney's classic fairy tale. Check out the trailer after the jump.

Who's ready for a new Power Rangers video clip from the upcoming movie? In the clip, Black Ranger Zach (Ludi Lin) takes his Zord out for the first time, but doesn't quite know what he's doing. I've always been a casual fan of the shows, but I have to say I'm pretty excited for this new movie, which looks to capture the silliness of the television show and mix with it a serious upgrade in special effects and the overall visual look of the franchise as a whole. You can check out the clip after the jump.
