Entertainment Link-Off: Natural Disaster

alexandra daddario san andreas premiereSo after a lackluster Memorial Day weekend at the box office in North America, another big summer flick enters the competition this weekend. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stars in the latest disaster flick San Andreas. I’m sure it is good popcorn fun. From a critical point of view, it is certainly doing better than Cameron Crowe’s latest effort Aloha, which is now deemed his biggest trainwreck yet. Anyway, if you do end up seeing San Andreas, you can catch the red hot Alexandra Daddario in the flick as well.

After the jump, Tron 3 is dead, find out more on Independence Day 2, George R. R. Martin will not be writing for the Game of Thrones series again in season 6, Deadpool has wrapped filming but they still want Jackman, and check out an awesome 30 minute short called Kung Fury.
