Entertainment Link-Off: The Awakening

shay mitchellOh we’re just counting down the days as Star Wars is about to hit cinemas in a matter of days! There aren’t any big notable releases as everyone is trying to shy away from the box office juggernaut. Perhaps it’s a good time to catch up on all the TV shows! Anyway, let’s kick off the ELO with Shay Mitchell. Now I’m thinking I should start tuning into Pretty Little Liars…

After the jump, MadTV reunion is on its way, Lionsgate wants Hunger Games prequels, The Good Dinosaur isn’t so good for Pixar, movie trailers galore including X-Men: Apocalypse and imagine Downton Abbey with American accents.

MadTV will be making a return to your television screens for its 20th anniversary special. However this time, instead of airing on FOX, it will be on The CW! (TV Line)

So why is Godzilla vs. King Kong happening? It’s because the head of Legendary Studios wants to see them duke it out. Simple as that. (Variety)

Since The Hunger Games is a money making machine, of course Lionsgate doesn’t want to let it go, even though the original series of films have finished. Now they’re exploring the idea of prequels with more arena action! (Slashfilm)

Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur is doing something unprecedented at the box office and not in a good way. It may be the first Pixar movie to be making a loss after its initial run at the box office. (Variety)

George Lucas has finally seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens and he sorta shares his thoughts on the movie. Look carefully at his words. It’s a film that he thinks fans will like… but he didn’t say anything about liking it himself! (Vulture)

While fan excitement is at fever pitch, perhaps it’s best to take it down a notch and go into the new film with a clear mind. Here’s a throwback to 1999 when The Phantom Menace premiered. The fans had nothing but good things to say back then… (Uproxx)

Michael Moore is America’s best secret weapon in “Where to Invade Next?”. (Yahoo)

Good news Netflix subscribers! The online platform will double its scripted programming for 2016! (The Verge)

Turns out The Hateful Eight was originally penned as the sequel to Django Unchained. Oh and the release date got pushed up! (Collider)

If you’re curious about the development of the Avatar sequels, looks like James Cameron is still going through the scripts, but the design is pretty much in place. (Entertainment Weekly)

The trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is out and it looks pretty darn good!

Also, director Bryan Singer takes a moment to break down the first clip from the upcoming superhero flick. (Empire)

While Disney didn’t have much luck with their adaptation of John Carter of Mars, perhaps Warner Brothers will have better luck with another Edgar Rice Burroughs classic. Take a look at Legend of Tarzan.

The trailer for the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon sequel isn’t quite hitting the spot. Perhaps it’s the song… or the special effects… or both.

The new Star Wars is less than a week away! There is a new international trailer for the flick that shows a bit more footage. Not sure if you want to have some parts spoiled though…

The trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: Out of the Shadows is out and it looks like it’s a bit more fun than the first flick.

Steven Spielberg and Disney are teaming up to bring Ronald Dahl’s classic The BFG to life!

Stephen Colbert attempts to ruin Downton Abbey by getting the cast to reenact a scene with American accents.

The latest Honest Trailers looks at Ant-Man, which is almost a rehash of the first Iron Man movie.
