    Province Brands’ Cannabis Beer Gets You Extremely High

    This October, Canada’s decriminalization of recreational marijuana goes into effect. You can imagine that that means a whole lot of Canadians are planning to fire up in celebration, but a heroic company has even the Canadians who aren’t crazy about inhaling smoke into their lungs covered. It’s called Province Brands, and it has reportedly developed […]

    ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Gets Second Official Trailer (Video)

    Like the Rolling Stones say, when you’re downright disgusted, and life ain’t worth a dang, get a girl with anime eyes. A girl like Alita: Battle Angel, for instance, the cyborg heroine of an upcoming collaboration between Bob Rodriguez and Jim Cameron, the second trailer for which is now online.

    ‘Neopets Legends and Letters’ Mobile Game Coming Soon

    I’m beginning to get a bit of a Chicken Little complex on the subject of mobile games. I thought Pokemon GO! was going to lead to the death of civilization, and that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp would finish off whatever roving bands of mutants that managed to survive the earlier game. Society is resilient, though, so maybe it can […]

    KFC Zinger Double Down Sandwich Coming Soon to UK and Ireland

    I’m old enough to remember when the KFC Double Down sandwich was first introduced, and it was little more than a tossed off novelty product, designed to get attention from late night comedians and early morning radio DJs.

    ‘Aquaman’ First Official Trailer (Video)

    Aquaman is sometimes seen as the George Costanza or Mel Cooley of the Justice League, the one everybody else in the group makes fun of. Other versions of the character teem with defensiveness over his risible roots, attempting to make him really cool and/or tough as compensation for the fact that he’s a guy who […]

    Not all the trailers to come to us from Comic-Con are for superhero movies. Take Disenchantment, for example, an upcoming animated Netflix series from none other than Matt Groening, who has a pretty good track record between The Simpsons and Futurama.  For this new series, he’s taking on the fantasy genre, and the voice cast includes Abbi Jacobson of Broad City and […]
