Watch The New Trailer Of 'The Strain', Based On The Book By Guillermo Del Toro And Chuck Hogan

Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan's The Strain has received a warm welcome from readers world wide. It gives a new twist on vampires, the way how The Walking Dead changed zombies in television. Because of this success, FX executives found it proper to adapt the said book into a TV series.

The Strain

The first season of the series will be composed of thirteen episodes. The pilot epidose was written by Del Toro and Hogan themselves, with Del Toro directing, how good is that for a treat. The showrunner is Carlton Cuse, who is also best known for Lost.

Watch the new trailer of the TV series The Strain.


A Boeing 777 lands at JFK with no communication or signs of life. Eph Goodweather, who investigates biological threats for the CDC, is called in and discovers all the passengers dead, and signs that a strange being had been aboard the vessel. Soon, he teams with ex-professor and Holocaust survivor Abraham Setrakian and they assemble a ragtag group that represents mankind’s only hope when a swarm of vampires quickly turn civilization into a buffet spread.

Fittingly for male-driven FX, unlike the traditional, romanticized portrayals of vampires as tuxedo-clad studs, The Strain‘s bloodsuckers have no seductive powers — they are parasites, husks of their former human form with stingers that drain blood for nourishment, while spreading capillary worms that convert victims into more vampires under the control of The Master.

The Strain will premiere on July 13, 2014, only at FX.

Studio Ghibli Shares Pictures And Cast Of Next Film, When Marnie Was There

I haven't even had a chance to watch The Tale of Princess Kaguya yet (but I was able to watch The Wind Rises), and Studio Ghibli will already be releasing their 20th feature film called When Marnie Was There or Omoide no Marnie (思い出のマーニー Omoide no Mānī, lit. "Memories of Marnie").

Directed by Hiromasa Yonebayashi (The Secret World of Arrietty), the story is based on a book of the same title written by Joan G. Robinson. It is adapted for screen by Hiromasa Yonebayashi, Keiko Niwa, and Masashi Ando and produced by Toshio Suzuki, who also worked for Kiki's Delivery Service, My Neighbor Totoro and others.

Yoriko (Nanako Matsushima)


Anna hasn't a friend in the world - until she meets Marnie among the sand dunes. But Marnie isn't all she seems...

An atmospheric ghost story with truths to tell about friendship, families and loneliness. Anna lives with foster parents, a misfit with no friends, always on the outside of things. Then she is sent to Norfolk to stay with old Mr and Mrs Pegg, where she runs wild on the sand dunes and around the water. There is a house, the Marsh House, which she feels she recognizes - and she soon meets a strange little girl called Marnie, who becomes Anna's first ever friend. Then one day, Marnie vanishes.

A new family, the Lindsays, move into the Marsh House. Having learnt so much from Marnie about friendship, Anna makes firm friends with the Lindsays - and learns some strange truths about Marnie, who was not all she seemed...

Studio Ghibli will release When Marnie Was There in Japan on July 19, 2014, with an expected US release late next year.

After this we can expect a sequel of the squiggly Porco Rosso in Porco Rosso: The Last Sortie, to be directed by same director...

Bloomsbury Unveils Jonny Duddle's New Cover Art For Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets By J.K. Rowling

The Phoenix has landed. I mean the new cover of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling (UK Edition) has been brought to light online by Bloomsbury. The said cover art is created by Johnny Duddle, who was especially chosen by Rowling and said publisher, also created the new cover art of the first book and of the other succeeding books that will be revealed eventually.

In this cover Harry Potter looked very much a feminine, in this opinion, as he holds in his hand the ancient relic known as The Sword of [Godric] Gryffindor. Take a look at the huge, chlorophyll basilisk, trying to chomp Fawkes the phoenix. All in all the cover was very fantastic indeed, and very much directed for younger readers.ic

Check out the new cover of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J.K. Rowling, courtesy of Johnny Duddle.

The newly designed Harry Potter books will start coming out for the public on September 1, 2014 (the same as the opening date of the class in Hogwarts) -- less than a hundred days from now.

Disney Pixar Reveals Plot Details And Major Cast Of Next Movie, Inside Out

It's quite a sad tale when Disney Pixar has taken a year off from their almost annual live presentation offering after their latest, Monsters University. Maybe the team needed a refresher to up their games, but other animation studios are taking advantage, such as Dreamworks, releasing an almost record-breaking 3 movies a year.

Happily next year the former studio will release their newest feature film called Inside Out. It's being directed by Pete Docter, together with Ronnie del Carmen. This Jonas Riveras-produced movie stars Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling and Phyllis Smith. We can almost certainly expect John Ratzenberger's voice to pop-up sometime in this movie, as he always did in all previous Pixar films.

Inside Out


From the tepuis of South America to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In 2015, he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all - inside the mind of an 11-year-old named Riley.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy, Fear, Anger, Disgust and Sadness. The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Disney Pixar's Inside Out reveals what's inside our head, coming out to theaters on June 19, 2015.

Extended Life for Your Tablet: Tips and Tools for Protecting your Battery

Battery Drain
The battery is one of the largest parts of most tablets, making it possible to use these devices all day long without a recharge. Even the new iPad Mini can run up to ten hours, thanks to the generous size of its battery. However, too many apps or battery-draining practices can wear down the battery, making the untimely death of your tablet a strong possibility. To maximize your tablet's battery so that you can use it when you want, check out these tips and tools:

Avoid Excessive Heat

According to Apple, heat is one of the biggest threats to your tablet's battery life. Keep your tablet out of direct sunlight, and remove it from your car in the summer time. The intense heat makes the tablet's processor work harder which in turn drains the battery. However, it is important to note that since the device is not equipped with a fan, it has to shut down if it overheats. Thus, if you overheat your iPad, you won't be able to use it whether the battery is full or not.

Optimize Your Settings for Battery Protection

Simple settings can play a huge role in how much battery your device is using. The following necessary adjustments will all lengthen battery life:

1. Turn down the screen's brightness.

2. Turn on airplane mode in "no coverage" areas. If your tablet is constantly trying to connect to nearby WiFi or data networks, it creates an unnecessary wear on the battery.

3. Set up your tablet to automatically lock after a short period of inactivity. This strategy prevents it from staying active when it is not in use.

4. Disable push notifications. Keep the push notifications that are important to you like your Facebook messenger notifications, but remove the ones that are superfluous. For example, you don't really need to know every time Talking Tom is hungry.

5. Disable applications that use location services. You can do this app by app, or you can go to settings, select privacy, select location, and disable location services from there.

Battery Manager Pro

This behind-the-scenes app boasts that it can boost your battery by at least five percent. It starts by getting your tablet into supercharge mode. When the tablet says that the battery is 100 percent charged, this app continues to encourage the battery to soak up even more power. As you use the tablet, this app will shut down unnecessary apps and functions.

When the battery is waning but you still need to use the tablet, you can turn to Battery Manager Pro for advice on which tasks the phone can handle. For instance, if you want to talk or listen to music, this app can let you know exactly how long you can spend doing those activities before the battery wears out.

Complete a Monthly Charge Cycle

According to Information Week, you should complete a full battery cycle at least once per month. Doing this will help your battery stand the test of time. To start the cycle, turn the tablet off and put it on the charger. Turning it off is critical if you want to avoid having the apps drain the battery as it charges. Once the battery is completely charged, use the tablet as normal, but run the battery down to its very last bit of juice before charging it again. Taking it from fully charged to totally dead and back again will invigorate it.

Andrew Garfield AKA Spider-Man Poses As Drag Queen In 'We Exist' Music Video By Arcade Fire

I bet you've watched the latest franchise of Marvel's Spider-Man -- the one called The Amazing Spider-Man 2? You might have noted the return of Andrew Garfield, a British actor playing the titular character Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man.

You might have also noticed how manly he was -- what's with being a hyper-active teenage guy, tireless superhero, and a crestfallen lover of Emma Stone's Gwen Stacy... Picture all of those, because they're all going away when you're done watching the new music video by Arcade Fire for their song We Exist.

Watch the new music video of We Exist by Arcade Fire, featuring Andrew Garfield as a somewhat awkward Drag Queen.

We Exist is the third single lifted from Arcade Fire's fourth and latest album, Reflektor. The same song is the second track from the first of the said two-disc album. The music video was directed by David Wilson. Portions of the video were shot during the live concert of the band at 2014 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

Get Ready For Finale Of Magicians Trilogy: The Magician's Land By Lev Grossman

Back then, after the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, every fan was left with a hollow of unquenchable thirst for more magic. Thankfully Lev Grossman has endowed as a gift in the form of The Magicians. Surely if you are young when you stared the first book of the Harry Potter series, by the time it ended you might have already grown up and ready for a more mature adventure -- and that's is exactly what Grossman's first Magicians book could be.

The book was followed by The Magician King and it delivered with the satisfactory department. Finally it has been announced to be a trilogy and the third book, aside from being named is The Magician's Land, is coming out this year to complete the adventure of Quentin Coldwater here in Earth, Fillory and the beyond.

Here is the similarly designed cover of The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman.

The Magician's Land by Lev Grossman


The stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling Magicians trilogy

Quentin Coldwater has lost everything. He has been cast out of Fillory, the secret magical land of his childhood dreams that he once ruled. Everything he had fought so hard for, not to mention his closest friends, is sealed away in a land Quentin may never again visit. With nothing left to lose he returns to where his story began, the Brakebills Preparatory College of Magic. But he can’t hide from his past, and it’s not long before it comes looking for him. Meanwhile, the magical barriers that keep Fillory safe are failing, and barbarians from the north have invaded. Eliot and Janet, the rulers of Fillory, embark on a final quest to save their beloved world, only to discover a situation far more complex—and far more dire—than anyone had envisioned.

Along with Plum, a brilliant young magician with a dark secret of her own, Quentin sets out on a crooked path through a magical demimonde of gray magic and desperate characters. His new life takes him back to old haunts, like Antarctica and the Neitherlands, and old friends he thought were lost forever. He uncovers buried secrets and hidden evils and ultimately the key to a sorcerous masterwork, a spell that could create a magical utopia. But all roads lead back to Fillory, where Quentin must face his fears and put things right or die trying.

The Magician’s Land is an intricate and fantastical thriller, and an epic of love and redemption that brings the Magicians trilogy to a magnificent conclusion, confirming it as one of the great achievements in modern fantasy. It’s the story of a boy becoming a man, an apprentice becoming a master, and a broken land finally becoming whole.

The Magician's Land By Lev Grossman will hit book stores on August 5, 2014.

Cinderella Gets Her Own Live-Action Treatment From Walt Disney Pictures

The trend successfully started in Disney's Alice in Wonderland, starring Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska. Then there comes Maleficent, from the story of Sleeping Beauty, this time starring Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning. The former was well-received by movie-goers and the later is having a bang with supporters.

And so to capitalize with this success Disney continues on with this trend this time with the live-action adaptation of the rags to riches story of Cinderella. The titular character will be played by Lily James and she will be joined by fairy-tale/fantasy veterans Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter, among many others.

And here an official photo that sprouted over the net a  few months ago, featuring the lead character astride a noble horse.

Lily James as Cinderella


The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera) into the family home. But, when Ella's father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, not merely an apprentice at the Palace, Ella finally feels she has met a kindred soul. It appears her fortunes may be about to change when the Palace sends out an open invitation for all maidens to attend a ball, raising Ella's hopes of once again encountering the charming Kit (Richard Madden). Alas, her stepmother forbids her to attend and callously rips apart her dress. But, as in all good fairy tales, help is at hand, and a kindly beggar woman (Helena Bonham-Carter) steps forward and -- armed with a pumpkin and a few mice -- changes Cinderella's life forever.

Disney's Cinderella swoops in to theaters on March 2015.

With his life changed forever by the tragedy, Barry was taken in and raised by Detective Joe West, the father of Barry’s best friend, Iris. Now, Barry has become a brilliant, driven and endearingly geeky CSI investigator, whose determination to uncover the truth about his mother’s strange death leads him to follow up on every unexplained urban legend and scientific advancement that comes along. Barry’s latest obsession is a cutting edge particle accelerator, created by visionary physicist Harrison Wells and his S.T.A.R. Labs team, who claim that this invention will bring about unimaginable advancements in power and medicine. However, something goes horribly wrong during the public unveiling, and when the devastating explosion causes a freak storm, many lives are lost and Barry is struck by lightning. After nine months in a coma, Barry awakens to find his life has changed once again – the accident has given him the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only “meta-human” who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. In the months since the accident, the city has seen a sharp increase in missing people, unexplained deaths and other strange phenomena. Barry now has a renewed purpose – using his gift of speed to protect the innocent, while never giving up on his quest to solve his mother’s murder and clear his father’s name. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won’t be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become... The Flash.

The Flash will premiere on The CW sometime this year.

Rick Riordan Unleashes The Official Cover Of The Blood Of Olympus (The Heroes Of Olympus Series Book #5)

Finally the day that every demigod has been waiting for has come. The official cover of The Heroes of Olympus: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan has been unveiled to the helpless demigods around the world. All this thanks to the fabulous art created by the series' cover magician, John Rocco.

In his most epic and raw rendition of the series, Rocco has placed us amidst the villains while we are watching the heroes attack from above. I am immediately in love with this bluey and reddish tinged cover art, the likes of which we've never seen before in the series.

Check out the official cover of The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan.

Cover of The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan


Though the Greek and Roman crewmembers of the Argo II have made progress in their many quests, they still seem no closer to defeating the earth mother, Gaea. Her giants have risen-all of them-and they're stronger than ever. They must be stopped before the Feast of Spes, when Gaea plans to have two demigods sacrificed in Athens. She needs their blood-the blood of Olympus-in order to wake.

The demigods are having more frequent visions of a terrible battle at Camp Half-Blood. The Roman legion from Camp Jupiter, led by Octavian, is almost within striking distance. Though it is tempting to take the Athena Parthenos to Athens to use as a secret weapon, the friends know that the huge statue belongs back on Long Island, where it might be able to stop a war between the two camps.

The Athena Parthenos will go west; the Argo II will go east. The gods, still suffering from multiple personality disorder, are useless. How can a handful of young demigods hope to persevere against Gaea's army of powerful giants? As dangerous as it is to head to Athens, they have no other option. They have sacrificed too much already. And if Gaea wakes, it is game over.

The Heroes of Olympus: The Blood of Olympus by Rick Riordan will hit bookstores on October 7, 2014.

Walt Disney's Maleficent Releases 5 New Character Posters And One For IMAX

Walt Disney Pictures has just released 5 new character poster of Maleficent, accompanied by its IMAX poster. Know a little more about the characters including Maleficent, Aurora, Diaval, Stefan and the three flower Pixies -- Knotgrass, Flittle and Thistlewit.

Check out these posters from Walt Disney Pictures' Maleficent.


Maleficent benevolently protects her home—the forest kingdom over which she presides—and all the creatures that dwell there, but a harsh betrayal turns Maleficent’s pure heart stone cold. Driven by relentless revenge and a fierce passion to protect her land from invaders, the now vindictive and ruthless Maleficent places an irrevocable curse on the human king’s newborn baby, Aurora.

Princess Aurora is a curious and thoughtful child who develops a bond with nature that rivals only Maleficent’s. But as she grows, Aurora is caught in the middle of the seething conflict between the forest kingdom she has grown to love and the human kingdom that holds her legacy.

Diaval is Maleficent’s loyal servant, who, on her command, can take on different forms to suit her purposes. He serves as Maleficent’s conscience and has strong beliefs, which he is not afraid to act upon.

Stefan is a childhood friend of Maleficent’s who comes from the human kingdom outside of the forest Maleficent calls home. Over time Stefan becomes consumed with his ambition to be King and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.

The three inept Flower Pixies are charged with caring for Aurora until her sixteenth birthday. Knotgrass is a tangled knot of bad humor, bossy and a superior to the other two Pixies. Flittle is a blue Flower Pixie. She always has butterflies flying around her head. Thistlewit the youngest of the Pixies, is always giddy, playful and childlike.

Bantam Unleashes Final Cover Of The World Of Ice And Fire By George R. R. Martin

Previously, we've seen what might have been the cover of The World of Ice and Fire. But recent update has unveiled a new cover for the same book by George R. R. Martin, albeit the final one. Sporting an almost similar hue than the previous one, the cover features the sigil or insignia of House Targaryen.

I think I am loving this professional looking cover because it quite matches the cover of the American version of the original series. The title and subtitle have been finalized as well and I hope Amazon will update their listing soon, as the price have spiked...

Here is the new cover of The World Of Ice & Fire: The Official History of Westeros and The World of A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin.

Second Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Trailer Features All Four Turtles, And Still Looks Ugly-Funny

When the first trailer of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles came out, some of us are a little to dismayed of the reptilian rhinal display. We would have wanted the original look without the nostrils, but the movie reboot found it proper to add this unsightly facial feature. Instead of making it look more serious and realistic it ended up being laughable in an ugly way.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Lucky there was only one of the turtles who got a prominent doze of this exposure and now that the second trailer is out -- guess out? All of them are already present: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo. And it is no better than the last time, because it is four-fold the original ugliness. Director Jonathan Liebesman should rethink his stand on this.

If not, hopefully the four-man team of writers - Josh Appelbaum, Andrew Nemec, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway, and John Fusco - will make up the visual defeciency with a juicy story. The movie stars Megan Fox, Alan Ritchson, Jeremy Howard, Pete Ploszek, Noel Fisher, Will Arnett, Danny Woodburn, William Fichtner, Johnny Knoxville, and Tony Shalhoub.

Astrid Proves It Works Everytime In How To Train Your Dragon 2 "Storm Fly Fetch" Clip

In Game of Thrones, Kit Harington's character, Jon Snow, has a doze of bullying. What with his being a bastard of Ned Stark and all? It seems that part of him will never go away even in his How to Train Your Dragon 2 character Eret. In a new clip released by, Dreamworks you'll see why.

In the clip, Astrid tries to intimidate Eret with the never-failing drop-him-to-death scare tactic. What's kind of amusing is we do hear a little of Jon Snow's twang and accent in Eret and he screams like a girl. Just can't stop laughing about it, considering the voice actor's connection with Game of Thrones.
