Paul Bettany joins the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron, as The Vision.

Paul Bettany, also known as Tony Stark's AI JARVIS will not only lend his voice for the film, he’s also scheduled to have some much awaited screen time.

The Daily Mail reported first after hearing of some costume fittings done by the actor, and confirmed by Variety, shortly after.

“Bettany and Jeremy Renner, who plays ace archer Hawkeye, were at Shepperton Studios just outside London this week, meeting with director Joss Whedon. They did a series of costume, hair and make-up tests and worked with stuntmen and armourers.”

The Vision is an android created by Supervillain Ultron to destroy The Avengers but instead ends up turning against him and becomes a hero himself. The Vision ends up marrying The Scarlet Witch who also appears in the film, played by Elizabeth Olsen.

FOX has released a trailer for their upcoming show GRACEPOINTwhich is an americanized take of the 10-part BBC Drama Broadchurch. 

David Tennant is set to reprise his role of Detective Alec Hardy –except he’s called Emmett Carver in this version.
If you’ve seen the trailer you’ll notice he’s also sporting an american accent! Doctor Who fans will not be surprised as he was able to mask his Scottish splendor when playing the 10th Doctor.

Fans of the original will still be able to enjoy this series without being spoiled by having watched the BBC version as it is set to feature a different “Killer” with a twist.

FOX states that “GRACEPOINT is an expansion of the original series, introducing new characters, identifying new suspects and threading new storylines through the gripping narrative." 

Now If you’ll excuse me I have to go watch Broadchurch before this comes out. 

Are you excited for this? Let us know!

What’s next for Clementine?

We wont have to wait too long since yesterday morning Telltale Games announced that The Walking Dead Season2’s second episode, “A House Divided” will launch Tuesday, March 4th for Playstation 3. The Vita version is scheduled for sometime in late March. Release dates for PC/Mac, Xbox Live & iOS are yet to be announced.

The new trailer introduces Carver, a mysterious man with ties to the group of people Clementine is currently with. Carver’s presence is threatening enough to force the group from their house, sending them scavenging into the wilderness (possibly putting them in the path of some walkers) for a new shelter — but why?

A TIP: If you haven’t played “400 Days”, the DLC released between TWD Season 1 & 2, you should check it out before “A House Divided” releases next week.

Ever wonder what Soccer and Zombies have in common? This film. As we aimlessly browsed the interwebs this morning, we came across the trailer release for the upcoming french film “Goal of the Dead" directed by Benjamin Rocher (The Horde)along with Thierry Poiraud with the first one being lead on the first half and and Poiraud directing the second half.

The trailer has a bit of a darker tone than expected although maybe we’re wrong since its in french and we can’t really understand what’s going on, The synopsis is as follows:

Saturday, the 18th of January 2012. A quarter of an hour before the match. An hour before the Apocalypse. In a small village in the north-east of France, Caplongue, lays a nuclear power plant, an industrialized agriculture and a church lower than its unemployment rate but also, the football team, which managed to reach the 1/32nd French Final Cup with a lot of courage and talent. The village is all the more jubilating at the idea of receiving the Paris Olympic, a top league club with famous footballers.For the Paris Olympic, it’s the opposite. The team mustn’t lose. This match, which was supposed to be a formality, has become of paramount importance. Between Paris and Caplongue, there is more than 250kms. It’s a match that opposes the rural to the urban world, the amateurs to the professionals, a province town to the capital, the poor to the rich. While the amateurs give a rough ride to the professionals, an epidemic instantly transforms the players, the spectators and the inhabitants into strange and enraged creatures.

Sad day in the news this morning, as Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in a greenwich village home. His body was found by a friend earlier today.

Hoffman, aged 46, won Best Actor at the 2005 Academy Awards for his role in Capote. He was well know for roles like Moneyball, The Big Lebowski, and more recently as Plutarch Heavensbee in the latest installment of The Hunger Games

A terrible loss, and one that came too soon. May you find peace wherever you may be.
