Sometimes when a show runs for a lot of seasons, they can run out of stories to tell. That is not what happened on Monday night on House though, no, the writers just got damn creative in this dream sequence where House faced down with zombies! (click the image to watch)

You know what? If House went in the direction of a zombie apocalypse, I think I’d start watching it again…

The new poster for Thor is striking and decently cool. It seperates itself from the happy-go-lucky Ironman posters and the recent Captain America poster as well. Marvel Studios have been pretty good at advertising its heroes and I can’t wait to see more and more as they build towards Joss Whedon’s Avengers. I just hope the rumors that the character crossovers will stop after Avengers are untrue. When you shape a universe so well, why wreck or less that go to waste?

You can check out the second full trailer to Thor over at Apple. Every trailer gets a little bit better. My anticipation for the fantasy flick is rising!

Next Wednesday, March 9th, is the conclusion to the current “Bullseye” storyline running through PunisherMax. Two of the most badass characters in the Marvel Comics Universe, The Punisher and Bullseye are going head to head and throwing everything in their arsenals at each other. I don’t know about you, but I want to be there to witness this.

“Bullseye” conclusion. The final epic confrontation between Frank Castle and Bullseye, as the maniac assassin hits Punisher with everything in his arsenal, including a dark secret that cuts Frank to his core. Even if Frank survives, he will never again be the same.

PunisherMax #11 was written by Jason Aaron with art by Steve Dillon. Also hitting stands next week from Marvel Comics is Sigil #1, Venom #1, X-Men Legacy #246, and Onslaught Unleashed #2, among other titles.

In the first part of “How to Get Your Film Seen: (Part 3) Your Website” we discussed why you need a homepage in addition to your social networking profiles, design, web hosting, domain names, and a few different styles that your website can take. Today I want to expand on what we talked about last time.

Not only is it a good idea to get a website, but it is an even better idea to learn just how to build a website. Websites can become very costly after you consider the yearly price of hosting and domain names and then take into the account of the actual design costs and maintenance. As a low budget filmmaker, you have already likely taught yourself how to edit and use camera equipment, why not also learn HTML and CSS coding? Just a little knowledge can get you a very long way. In the very least you can beg someone to do the initial design work on the site and you can comfortably edit the pages by yourself, successfully avoiding the costly maintenance.

Also touching on what I mentioned in the last column, if you create the website around a blog platform, like WordPress, then you’ll be able to easily edit all of the pages via an Online editor. WordPress themes are completely customizable and you can manipulate them into exactly how you want your website to look.

I don’t want you to get the wrong idea, I will not be writing recaps, or following the new (or any) season of Dancing With the Stars. I’ve never watched an episode, nor do I have any desire to.  I just wanted to write and issue our support for The Karate Kid! Go kick their butts Ralph Macchio (hopefully literally!).

Anyway, for those who are interested, here is the full list of “stars” and dancers for the 12th season of Dancing With the Stars.

  • Ralph Macchio and Karina Smirnoff
  • Kirstie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy
  • Mike Catherwood and Lacey Schwimmer
  • Chris Jericho and Cheryl Burke
  • Chelsea Kane and Mark Ballas
  • Sugar Ray Leonard and Anna Trebunskaya
  • Petra Nemcova and Dmitry Chaplin
  • Romeo and Chelsie Hightower
  • Hines Ward and Kym Johnson
  • Kendra Wilkinson and Louis van Amstel
  • Wendy Williams and Tony Dovolani

While I might not watch the show, I can’t wait to see what Joel McHale has to say about Wendy Williams’ dancing over on The Soup! Do you watch the show? Who will you be voting for?

This is a little tricky for me. I haven’t picked up a DC Comics series in a while, you see, they burned me out with too many crossovers and absolutely no reason in the madness (asides making me poor and letting me down). I needed a break from them… but than I see this logo: “Reign of Doomsday”.

Outsiders issue #37 is actually part two of DC Comic’s latest crossover event, “Reign of Doomsday”. Yeah, the monster that killed Superman and destroyed much of Metropolis is back and ready to beat down the heroes of the DC Comics Universe. The storyline began in the first issue of the new Steel series, which I will be going out to get this week so I can figure out what the heck is happening. Here is the official description of the new Outsiders issue:

In Markovia, the Eradicator struggles in battle against the murder-machine known as Doomsday! It’s a fight to the death with the lives of Geo-Force, Katana, the Looker, Halo and the Olympian all hanging in the balance! Meanwhile, under arrest by the U.S. government, Black Lightning and his Outsiders team find their backs against the wall as they’re forced to choose between a lifetime of imprisonment or leading an invasion of their former home base in Markovia!

The issue hits stands next Wednesday, March 9th, 2011. It is written by Dan DiDio and contains art from Keith Giffen and Mick Gray.

Okay, so these aren’t the first posters that Fox has released for the upcoming prequel, X-Men First Class, but I gotta say, I dig them. The first image is of James McAvoy as a very hairy Professor X-

And the next is of Michael Fassbender, who looks just as pissed off as the Magento we know and love.

I love the style with the reflections in the water and the contrast between the backgrounds, showing the characters very different paths and history. I’ve said it before, and don’t get me wrong I have a ton of faith in Matthew Vaughn, I really hope this new flick is able to be true to the other movies and actually be good (unlike the god awful prequel X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the just as bad sequel X3). How about you, getting excited yet?
