Check out the trailer above? Good. Now a little more about Life of Crime (…then info on our new giveaway where you can take home a 15 dollar Fandango gift card!)

When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in Life of Crime, a dark caper comedy based on legendary author Elmore Leonard’s novel The Switch. Starring Jennifer Aniston, John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, and Tim Robbins, Life of Crime is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers.

Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (Yasiin Bey and Jon Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.

Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman Revealed
Sure, Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment released some Dark Knight Returns inspired footage for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that was slightly overshadowed by the reveal of the movie’s Wonder Woman. Until now it was unknown if Gal Gadot would even don a costume, but here she is in a darkened version of her classic suit. The amazon warrior looks very similar to another warrior princess, but personally I don’t have any issue with that. Hopefully the outfit will get some classic red and blue before the trinity of heroes team up in Justice League.

Josh Brolin as Thanos

Josh Brolin is Thanos
The Marvel Studios panel had almost everyone from Avengers: Age of Ultron in attendance, including Robert Downey, Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Bettany, Cobie Smulders, Samuel L Jackson, and James Spader, but joining the panel was someone unexpected; Josh Brolin who will be stepping into the boots of Marvel’s cosmic big bad Thanos. He jumped on the stage wearing the Infinity Gauntlet, ate a rose that Robert Downey Jr gave him, and showed that he will be a force to be reckoned with… eventually.

Ash in an Evil Dead Series

Evil Dead: The Series
Talk about unexpected. There was nt an Evil Dead screening or anniversary panel or anything like that. Instead, during the Screen Gems panel Sam Raimi, there to talk about The Last of Us, dropped a bomb on the audience; he is developing Evil Dead as a TV series with Bruce “Ash” Campbell and Ivan Raimi. Campbell followed up the announcement with the reveal that if it happens, he will star in the series. The team is no stranger to TV, having worked on shows such as Jack of All Trades and Xena: Warrior Princess together, and each having a hand in many other shows. God, I hope this happens.

The Walking Dead Trailer

The Walking Dead Season 5 Trailer
Not many TV shows get presented in Hall H, but The Walking Dead is a show that has earned its place in the large ballroom. AMC aimed to please the crowd and showed a lengthy (and spoiler filled) trailer for the new season. There is so much packed into this trailer (you can watch it here); what secrets do Terminus hold? How will our survivors get out? What new characters were revealed? Where is Beth? I’m not posting the spoilers here, but the release of this trailer alone makes the San Diego Comic Con worth it.

What piece of news from the 2014 San Diego Comic Con excites you the most? Which of these 4 awesome things is your favorite?

Hot off the heels of Iron Man and Scarlett Witch San Diego Comic Con teaser posters comes a teaser poster of Black Widow in her new costume. The poster also features glimpses of Thor’s hammer, Hulk’s fist, and Hawkeye’s arrows. I can’t wait to see what all of the images look like when put together!

Black Widow Avengers2

With the first day of the San Diego Comic Con here, expect a lot of movie, television, and comic book news. There is no doubt that Avengers: Age of Ultron will have a big presence at the Marvel Studios panel on Saturday July 26th at 5:30pm pst. Marvel’s television panel will be on Friday at 3pm pst and will feature Agents of SHIELD and Agent Carter.

Joel McHale and Chevy Chase in Community

I am honestly shocked and a little lost for words- in a good way. With all of the possible companies that could have swooped in to save Community, including Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, or even a traditional cable channel like USA or TNT, I never in a middle years thought that it would be Yahoo to save the day. That is right, the search engine and email website, the one that seems like it has been dying for the past decade showed up when all hope had been lost and will bring us one step closer to #SixSeasonsAndAMovie.

Not much is known about the deal. We do know that the cast and creator Dan Harmon will return for 13 new episodes that will air exclusively on Yahoo Screen in the fall. Screen is the new streaming offshoot of Yahoo that works similar to Hulu, with shows airing online with commercial breaks. Yahoo Screen had previously announced two new original programs, Other Space from Paul Feig and Sin City Saints from Bryan Gordon and Mike Tollin. Both of these shows will have 8 episode seasons, with all of the episodes being released on the same day (the same model that Netflix uses). It is unknown if they will do the same for the new season of Community.

Excited that Community is returning? What are you hoping for in the new season? With the show moving online, they can pretty much do anything they want.

We are very excited about our latest giveaway! A big thanks to Warner Bros. Home Entertainment for providing My Hollywood Dream with a copy of The LEGO Movie on Blu-Ray to give to one of our awesome readers! First, lets take a look at the movie’s official description and then check out the “EVERYTHING IS AWESOME” GIF creator in The LEGO Movie App.

The LEGO® Movie, the first-ever, full-length theatrical LEGO® adventure, directed by Phil Lord & Christopher Miller is an original 3D computer animated story that follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

Chris Pratt (Moneyball) stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell (The Campaign) stars as the voice of his primary adversary, President Business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson (Taken) voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as Bad Cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet.

Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar® winner Morgan Freeman (Million Dollar Baby), as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games, Emmy nominee for 30 Rock), as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett (Emmy nominee, 30 Rock), as the mysterious Batman, a LEGO minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman (NBC’s Parks and Recreation) as a craggy, swaggering pirate, obsessed with revenge on President Business; and Alison Brie (Community) as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

We are very happy to present two exclusive images from the superhero dramedy I Was A Teenage Superhero Sidekick from writer/director J Hanna. The movie focuses on Larry (Barrett Mitchell), the once heroic Kid Dynamic- sidekick for the mighty Dynamic Man, as he adjusts to live outside of the superhero business. From the official description we can tell that things are not going very well.

Kid Dynamic, sidekick to Dynamic Man, quits the whole superhero racket and struggles with the transition…with finding himself. His hippy-dippy headshrinker, who insists on outdoor yoga classes during psychoanalysis, helps him find the courage to go for the simpler life he yearns for. What he comes to understand is that life isn’t so simple, with or without the cape.

The first still image features Barrett Mitchell as the former Kid Dynamic as he deals with some of his “issues”.

This second still image gives us a look at other heroes that populate the world of I Was a Teenage Superhero Sidekick, with art by Vanessa SinYing Fung.

You can find more information on the movie over on it’s official Facebook page and can get even more details on the movie, it’s cast and crew over on IMDB. The movie stars Barrett Mitchell, Emily Sandifer, Milena Mortati, Andre Antwan, Rashawn E. Vaughn, Eryn Joslyn, and Bill Ferris as Dynamic Man, and was produced by J Hanna and Kathy McCurdy.
