“Wrath of the Titans” trailer prepares you for oblivion


Posted by on

“Release the kraken,” please meet “Prepare for oblivion.”

It doesn’t come as too much of a surprise that the newest “Wrath of the Titans” trailer features a lot of wrath and even more Titans. This time around, the Greek Titans are attempting to break free from their prison of Tartarus. Zeus (Liam Neeson) returns to Perseus (Sam Worthington) a decade after the events of “Clash of the Titans” and enlists his help yet again. At what point does Perseus’ obligation to his absentee father meet its end? Our guess is in the anticipated third movie.

There certainly is a wild array of nerdy movies in the 2012 blockbuster line-up, but “Wrath of the Titans” offers something that few of the other ones do: monsters, monsters and more monsters. If you don’t believe us, just watch that trailer yet again and try to count all the new mythological creatures in it on one hand. That’s what we’re signing up for in these movies, so we’re totally okay with it. As long as the 3D doesn’t give us the same sort of headache that “Clash of the Titans” did, that is.

Also in this trailer are new shots of Rosamund Pike and Toby Kebbell, who make their debut in the “Titans” franchise in this new movie. We’re digging the way Pike is a warrior heroine, unlike Gemma Arterton’s Io in “Clash.” But couldn’t her character Andromeda have taken some time to teach Perseus the perks of a good hair cut?

Jonathan Liebesman directed “Wrath of the Titans,” which also stars Ralph Fiennes, Bill Nighy, Danny Huston and Edgar Ramirez. It’s due in theaters on March 30.

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”

Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”

But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

From baseball to beer, Jim Brockmire calls ’em like he sees ’em.


It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:
