Disney Reveals Plans For A Fully Immersive ‘Star Wars’ Hotel

(PCM) Disney has just made the dreams of millions of “Star Wars” fans worldwide come true by revealing their plans to create a fully immersive “Star Wars” themed hotel. When they say fully immersive, they really do mean fully immersive as each guest will actually receive their very own story line which will play out over the course of the entire stay.  The news was announced at the recent D23 expo which took place in downtown Los Angeles.

All of the employees, or rather cast members as per Disney speak, will stay completely in character and costume. Disney claims that each guests particular storyline will “touch every single minute of the day” and the hotel setting will be in outer space so all of the windows in the building will only show space scenes and sequences.

We think this idea is one of the coolest things we’ve ever heard! The “Star Wars” film franchise has been such a staple throughout the history of pop culture, so allowing fans to have this level of interaction is truly an amazing feat in both technology and hospitality.

Disney did not reveal an official date for a planned opening of the hotel as it is currently still in the planning stages. The only thing they did say is that it is planned to be located at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida … sorry California Disneyland fans … you may have to wait awhile!

P!NK Skyrockets At Atlantic City BeachFest Performance

It has been about three years since we have seen P!NK grace the stage and we were thrilled to be in attendance for her one and only east coast performance this year kicking off Atlantic City BeachFest for the 2017 Summer season. P!NK performed to a sell-out crowd of over 80,000 fans that took place directly on the sands of the Atlantic City beach. It was definitely one of the more interesting venues we have encountered, especially given the fact that you could glance directly over to your left and see the ocean waves crashing against the shore. It was beautiful, yet hot and steamy evening, however that did very little to dampen the excitement levels for the fans who patiently waited nearly three hours for our beloved P!NK to take the stage.

What was incredible to us, was, despite a three year absence, once P!NK popped onto the stage it was as if no time had gone by at all. While there may have been a few technical glitches over the course of her 70 minute performance, P!NK handled them like a pro and more than proved she is an absolutely phenomenal performer. What we enjoy the most is knowing that she is real, there are no click tracks, lip-syncing or anything like that … what you see is what you get with P!NK and it is refreshing. Several times throughout the show she requested that her vocals be turned up or down in her ear piece and even at one point during the show joking asked guitarist Justin Derrico to play a little longer intro so she could get in a little soundcheck before launching into a gorgeous acoustic set that included hits “Who Knew”, “F**ckin Perfect” as well as covers of the Janis Joplin hit “Me & Bobby McGee” and the Joan Baez/Led Zeppelin gem “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave”.  P!NK’s version of “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave” is arguably one of the best cover performances we have ever seen of this particular song. She absolutely nailed it!

One of our favorite moments of the show occurred when No Doubt/DREAMCAR bassist Tony Kanal joined P!NK on stage for a cover of the No Doubt smash hit “Just A Girl” which was beautifully blended with P!NK’s own hit single “Funhouse” which was co-written with Kanal. Over the years P!NK has still continued to churn out the singles and her latest hit “Just Like Fire” which appeared in the film “Alice Through The Looking Glass” cracked the top 10 in 2016, despite the fact that her last solo LP dropped back in 2012. Her songs are truly timeless and seeing them performed live is an even bigger treat.

P!NK’s stage was perfectly dressed with a massive hot pink colored pin cushion set that acted as the drum kit platform along with two huge inflatable Voodoo dolls flanking either site of the stage. Those Voodoo dolls were seriously adorable, now to just figure out where we can buy one! P!NK’s use of pyrotechnics and lighting elements was superb, she didn’t overkill it with the special effects, but there were just enough there to keep things visually enticing. P!NK and her crew of dancers and backing band keep you engaged throughout the entire performance from their incredibly well choreographed dance routines to just plain rocking out all over the stage. It is non-stop energy from beginning to end.

Always a humble artist, P!NK mentioned several times throughout the set that she truly has the best f**king fans, crew, dancers and band. She spent a lot of time interacting with them during the performance. It was also great to see that P!NK’s family was also present for the standing by the side of the stage. She frequently sang a few songs in their direction and glanced over during certain select verses of various songs. In addition to interacting with her crew, P!NK also spends a lot of time interacting directly with the fans. She jokes with them, speaks to them, reads their signs, signs autographs and graciously thanked them for the stuffed animals and other gifts they tossed on the stage throughout the performance. It is fantastic to see an artist that is not afraid to get down and dirty with her fan and that type of interaction will stay with someone for the rest of their lives. It is truly a beautiful moment to behold when artist and fan come together as one.

P!NK took some time out to be sure she gave a shout-out to the Philadelphia area fans in attendance as that is her old stomping grounds, however P!NK also pointed out that Atlantic City is actually her mother’s hometown revealing that she attended Atlantic City High School. P!NK has been known for her amazing aerial acrobatics during her live performances and she definitely shined during her closing number performing her hit single “So What” while soaring high above the beach crowd spinning and tumbling through the air. It was visually stunning and the perfect way to close out her marvelous performance.

P!NK boasts 42 million worldwide album sales, 75 million worldwide single sales, 5 billion worldwide audio streams and 3.3 billion worldwide video streams, however she still remains one of the most humble and honest musicians with have had the pleasure to enjoy. Many of her peers should take lesson as P!NK knows just how to get the party started and keep it going for many years to come.

The concert was opened by the No Doubt/AFI Supergroup DREAMCAR who brought their high energy performance and their 80’s retro vibe onto Atlantic City’s beach getting the crowds ready for an incredible performance from headliner P!NK (Alecia Moore). DREAMCAR is a joint venture of AFI frontman Davey Havok and No Doubt members Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont, and Adrian Young. A few very notable moments during their set would definitely be the sing-a-long during their electro-rock anthems such as “Kill For Candy,” “All The Dead Girls,” and “Show Me Mercy.” It was a very pleasing yet surprising moment to hear fans singing along to a lot of their music as the band hasn’t been around for that long. Opening up the evening was DJ DeeJay who had the perfect blend of songs to get fans blood flowing as they danced along to some of the hottest songs put out in the last 15 years from rock, pop, to rap, and hip-hop. DJ DeeJay knew how to perfect the playlist to get fans going even joining them by dancing on stage during select songs.

Gerald Way And Gabriel Ba’s ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Graphic Novels Will Head To Netflix As A Live Action Series

(AOTN) Netflix, the world’s leading internet TV network, will bring the ten-episode series The Umbrella Academy to members worldwide in 2018.

Based on the popular, Eisner award-winning comics and graphic novels created and written by Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance) and illustrated by Gabriel Bá, The Umbrella Academy is a live action series that follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes (The Umbrella Academy) — The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, Number Five, The Horror, and The White Violin — as they work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities. Published by Dark Horse Comics, the comic series garnered much praise from fans and critics alike for its alternate and twisted take on the superhero genre.

“I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix. I couldn’t think of a better place for the vision Gabriel Bá and myself had when creating the comic, and cannot wait for people to experience that world as a live action show,” said Gerard Way.

“What drew us to The Umbrella Academy is that it’s wholly unique, visual and stylized,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix. “These aren’t the usual superheroes, and this series will embrace the singular tone of the graphic novels — dark yet humorous, supernatural yet grounded in reality. We’re excited to see this world and introduce these unforgettable heroes to Netflix members around the globe.”

“It’s a thrill to be producing this wonderful show for Netflix,” said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, and President, Universal Cable Productions. “It’s been a passion project for the UCP development crew and we can’t wait to bring it to life.”

The Umbrella Academy will be produced by Universal Cable Productions. Steve Blackman (Fargo, Altered Carbon) will serve as executive producer and showrunner, with additional executive producers Bluegrass Television and Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg from Dark Horse Entertainment. Gerard Way will serve as co-executive producer. The pilot script was adapted from the comic book series by Jeremy Slater (The Exorcist).

Smart Home Device Actually Alerted Police During Domestic Altercation

(PCM) Anyone that assumed smart home devices are not always eavesdropping on the conversations that take place in our home, you are definitely wrong. However, in this particular case the smart home device, which has been revealed to be a Google Home, may have actually saved a life by alerting the local authorities to a domestic altercation that was occurring within a home in New Mexico.

A man named Eduardo Barros was house-sitting at a residence with his girlfriend and her daughter when he and his girlfriend got into an argument that eventually turned violent. It was at this point that the smart home device kicked and while the couple were in the midst of their heated argument the device overheard Barros, who was waving around a firearm and threatening to kill his girlfriend say, “Did you call the sheriffs”?

The smart home device recognized the phrase “call the sheriffs” as a voice command and promptly dialed 911 who then sent an emergency response team to the home. This action by the smart device may very well have saved a life, as who knows what could have happened had a call not been placed to the authorities.

It can be scary to think that these types of devices can overhear and analyze what we are saying from the privacy of our own homes, however it is definitely a little bit comforting to know that they can also act almost as a security system should we ever find ourselves in a dangerous situation.

Rumors Circulate That ‘Wonder Woman 2’ Could Be Set During 1980’s Cold War Era

(AOTN) This summer’s release of “Wonder Woman” was exactly what the DC Cinematic Universe needed to get back on its’ feet and the film smashed the box office bringing over $700 million worldwide. Fans and critics alike praised director Patty Jenkins phenomenal work on the film and were thrilled to hear that she plans to return once again to helm the planned sequel.

Thus far there have been very few details released regarding the plot and setting for “Wonder Woman 2”, however the rumors we are hearing thanks to the good folks over a Screen Rant claim that, “Wonder Woman 2 will be another historical adventure prior to the modern day DCEU. Set during the 1980s, the film will send Diana against the forces of Soviet Union in the closing days of the Cold War.”

It is also rumored that actor Chris Pine could be returning, but in what capacity has not yet been revealed. Speculation would lead us to believe that he could return as our beloved Steve Trevor in another series of flashbacks, however more realistically Pine could potentially portray one of Trevor’s direct descendants. We can only hope for another love story arc and possibly one that is not quite as ill-fated.

We definitely can’t wait until more details are revealed throughout the coming year!

‘Hail Satan’ License Plates Now Available In Tennessee

(PCM) Here’s another one for the odd file! It appears that Tennessee legislators have passed a new bill that will allow drivers to choose from a variety of different phrases celebrating religious diversity on their license plates. This news comes after it was revealed that drivers in the state would be allowed to have the phrase “In God We Trust” emblazoned on their license plates.

Some of the other plates that will be available to drivers will feature the phrases “Hail Satan”, “Shalom”, “Namaste” and “Praise, Jah” to name a few. State senator Brody Printrip says, “It’s only fair. We should celebrate our diversity.”

Tennessee is a state that is located deep within our country’s Bible Belt region, so we can only imagine that there is definitely going to some sort of protest involving the religious diversity plates, especially the one bearing “Hail Satan”. Freedom of religion is a constitutionally protected right, so there is really going to be very little anyone can do about the plates other than just accept them and move on.

We have to wonder now if any other States will soon follow suit!

Netflix Unveils Official Release Date For ‘Stranger Things 2’ Along With New Teaser

(AOTN) Netflix gave us a huge surprise this morning by unveiling the official release date for the high anticipated return of the hit series “Stranger Things” for season two! “Stranger Things 2” will officially begin streaming on October 27th!

In addition to the release date news, Netflix also revealed a creepy new poster and new teaser trailer spotlighting the upcoming season.

Fans have been on the edge of their seats since last year’s epic finale which left us with quite a cliffhanger and definitely more questions rather than answers. As this new teaser trailer promises in 1984, “things only get stranger”, and would really want it any other way!

You can check out the new teaser trailer below:

In a statement, Netflix revealed that Season 2 will start with a rescued Will Byers, but that a “bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.”

Why You Shouldn’t Worry If You Get A Friend Request From Jayden K. Smith

(PCM) Man, that Jayden K. Smith guy just wants to be friends with everyone it seems! The latest Facebook scam that has been making the rounds is a warning message alerting people that if they receive a friend request from a person going by the name of Jayden K. Smith (no, not actor Will Smith’s son) that it is a hacking program and your account will be compromised.

The truth of the matter is that actually very few people have received any actual friend requests from anyone named Jayden K. Smith, it is the warning message that is the scam not the friend request. Not to worry though, it is a harmless scam just meant to mess with everyone’s head and have you spamming up your Facebook friend’s messenger feeds.

Literally millions of Facebook and Twitter users have been receiving notifications from their family and friends warning them not to accept any unsolicited friend requests from the Jayden K. Smith account. The copied/pasted message is the same for every person and starts out by saying “Please tell all the contact in your Messenger list, not to accept Jayden K. Smith friend request” and then goes on to warn about the potential for hacking.

This is nothing more than a scare tactic and most likely all of your personal information will still be secured. This is not the first time that scam artist has began a chain message warning in regards to potential hackers, the only real difference is that they were using different names in the past. This time is just so happens to be Jayden K. Smith, next time it will be a completely different name.

It is virtually impossible to send a virus or get hacked by simply accepting a friend request on Facebook. What you have to be more careful with is opening up odd email and/or message attachments, basically anything that could possible download some yucky stuff on your devices. Many people are joking about the Jayden K. Smith rumor and claiming that Jayden K. Smith is actually the fictitious Keyser Soze, however keep in mind those report may be unsubstantiated!

The screening will take place at the Westfield Horton Plaza and will be followed by a Q&A with director David F. Sandberg and stars Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson and Anthony LaPaglia.

Keeping the scares going strong, on Thursday the 20th and through the weekend, brave fans can hop on the creepiest school bus in town: an “IT”-inspired virtual reality installation that will have them skipping school for the foreseeable future.

The class begins at 10 a.m., Thursday through Sunday.

Also launching on Thursday, and open through Sunday, is the Blade Runner 2049 Experience, an immense, immersive and interactive multimedia installation that replicates the film’s environment. It will be positioned outside of the Convention proper in the Gaslamp Quarter—no badge necessary.

Exciting Casting News For Crackle’s ‘The Oath’

(AOTN) We are super excited to learn that actress Katrina Hall (Training Day) has joined the cast of the new Crackle original drama “The Oath”, which is set to debut in 2018.  Law will take on the character of Karen Beach , a police officer, and the sole female member of the Ravens cop gang, who has tendency to overcompensate by out-toughing the macho company she runs with and gets involved in a forbidden love affair with a member of a rival cop gang. Law joins the previously announced members of the ensemble: Ryan Kwanten (“True Blood”), Cory Hardrict (American Sniper, Gran Torino), Arlen Escarpeta (“The Magicians”) and “Game of Thrones” alum, Sean Bean.

Created by Joe Halpin (“Hawaii Five-O,” “Secrets and Lies”), who worked as a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputy in South Central for 17 years, 12 of which as an undercover officer, the series takes ýan unforgiving look at the complicated dynamics in these organizations and documents the lives of those willing to risk it all, to have it all. The gritty, action-packed drama, explores a world of gangs made up of those sworn to protect and defend and sheds light on corrupt and secret societies that are nearly impossible to join—only a select few make the cut–but once inside, members will do what they must to protect each other from enemies on the outside and from within their own ranks.

The Oath” is executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and his G-Unit Film & Television Inc., Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim of Storied Media Group, as well as former Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Joe Halpin (“Hawaii Five-O,” “Secrets And Lies”), who served for over a decade as an undercover cop in South Central and brings an invaluable air of authenticity to the series in his role as series creator, writer, and showrunner. Veteran filmmaker Jeff T. Thomas (“Blindspot,” “Wayward Pines”) will direct the series’ premiere episode.

Katrina Law starred as a series regular on CBS’ hard-hitting series, “Training Day,” a present-day reimagining of Antoine Fuqua’s acclaimed 2001 feature film. Katrina also stars in the Independent features, Apparition directed by Quinn Saunders, and Death Valley directed by T.J. Scott, as well as Zeroes directed by Charles Smith and Darkness Rising directed by Austin Reading. She also completed a pivotal role as Danny Glover’s right hand woman in the Independent feature Checkmate directed by Timothy Woodward Jr. Katrina has gained an extremely loyal global following from her recurring role of Nyssa Al Ghul, on CW’s “Arrow.” She notably starred as the romantic lead in Hallmark’s Snow Bride directed by Bert Kish. Snow Bride has become one of Hallmarks highest rated movies which led to her starring again for Hallmark in 12 Gifts of Christmas directed by Peter Sullivan. Katrina previously starred in the series “Spartacus,” for Starz Network.
