Entertainment Link-Off: Through the Wormhole

irina shaykThis weekend, the second (and apparently much better) of the two Hercules films hits the theatres. This time, you get to see Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson take on a whole bunch of animals! Anyway, you can also catch Irina Shayk in a small role in the film. 

After the jump, more troubles for Ant-Man, the next Spider-Man film is delayed, there is no endgame in plan for Sons of Anarchy, Mary Poppins is tired of getting paid minimum wage, watch for a faux Rob Ford cameo in Sharknado 2, we find out the reason for the lens flare in JJ Abrams’ movies, and a whole bunch of videos to check out.

If all goes well at the box office, James Gunn is expected to return to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy 2. The other main question now is whether the whole cast will return given that Zoe Saldana is also going to be a part of the Avatar sequels… (The Wrap)

More trouble behind the scenes for Ant-Man. Patrick Wilson has exited the movie due to scheduling conflicts. So the prospects for this film isn’t looking so good now. (Deadline)

So far the buzz for The Maze Runner is looking good. If all goes well, the sequel The Scorch Trials will start filming this fall. At least the concept art so far looks promising! (Slashfilm)

The new 50 Shades of Grey trailer has caused a social media frenzy and here is a collection of some funny reactions. (News.com.au)

Given that The Amazing Spider-Man franchise hasn’t performed to expectations, it isn’t surprising that Sony has decided to move the third film of the franchise all the way to 2018. (Variety)

Teasing the new look of Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. (DC Comics)

Sure, Roberto Orci does not have the intention to ruin our childhoods but he does so anyway. Next up, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers! (IGN)

The new poster for The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies looks cool but at the same time, it probably lacks a bit of creativity. Good ol’ Hollywood. (Slashfilm)

First look at Horns starring Daniel Radcliffe. (MTV)

Sure the folks at Greendale got a last minute revival for the sixth season on Yahoo but it is still up in the air in terms of when the show will start airing new episodes in its new home. (TV Line)

Fans of Sons of Anarchy. Should you worry? Creator Kurt Sutter does not have an endgame in mind yet and the final season is approaching! (Entertainment Weekly)

Kristen Bell channels Mary Poppins and gets politically correct in this hilarious short. Turns out Ms Poppins is grossly underpaid and she is trying to campaign for a higher minimum wage. (Funny or Die)

Well if you’re up for a few more chuckles, here’s a fun little mockumentary explaining the lens flare in JJ Abrams’ films. (Vimeo)

There’s one very good reason to see Sharknado 2. Rob Ford gets eaten by one of those flying sharks! (Zap2it)

It’s Comic-Con weekend, so there would be plenty of good stuff released all weekend. Including this fun little gag reel from the latest season of Game of Thrones.

And there is a nice recap of the GoT panel at the event. (Collider)

Meet the new cast members of Game of Thrones.

Oh… how about a look into season 5 of The Walking Dead?

I don’t know about you, but I am getting awfully excited about Arrow season 3!

More scoop on Arrow season 3. (TV Line)

Let’s take a blast from the past and go 10 years into the future! Time for Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

More stuff to look forward to. Produced by Ridley Scott, have a look at Halo: Nightfall, which will serve as a bridge between Halo 4 and 5.

Last time, Morgan Freeman spoke after inhaling helium under his own terms in Through the Wormhole with Morgan Freeman. This time though, it is under the request of Jimmy Fallon and he didn’t look too pleased (well I’m sure it’s just acting).
