Entertainment Link-Off: All Roads Lead To This

gal gadotThis weekend at the theatres is a face-off between two big franchises. On one end is the return of the Wolfpack in The Hangover Part III. On the other is the actioner Fast and Furious 6. Funny enough, despite having six installments in the bag, the Fast and Furious gang still got some fuel in the tank while the Wolfpack is left behind sniffing the fumes. Anyway, kicking off this entry is one of the ladies from the FF flick, Gal Gadot.

After the jump, some Fast and Furious related news items, another look at The World’s End, Arrested Development relied heavily on the green screen, a Fresh Prince reunion and Superman delivers the ultimate ball busting move.

First we got a teaser, now we get a better look at The World’s End. It might not feel as fresh as Shaun of the Dead or Hot Fuzz, but there’s only so much a 2 minute trailer can show ya. (Yahoo)

It has been a while since we last saw Arrested Development on TV. The stars of the show have all become bigger names nowadays and it was certainly difficult to get them together to shoot the series. In fact, the actors weren’t necessarily on the set at the same time and they relied on green screens to make it happen. As long as it doesn’t affect the quality of the show, it is all good. (Complex)

After watching this, I really want to see a Fresh Prince reunion. Will Smith brings in DJ Jazzy Jeff and Alfonso Ribeiro for a special performance on the Graham Norton Show.
