Jason Sudeikus and Jennifer Aniston team up once again(they are in Horrible Bosses together) for a family movie your family shouldn't see. This looks awesome!
If you thought the previous "Man of Steel" trailers lacked any action, this one makes up for it. I can't wait to see it! June 14th can't get here quick enough.
I can't wait for this to come out! This a good year for comic books and the movies. Here's the newest trailer for The Wolverine.
It's been over 7 years since Microsoft gave us a X-box and they are hoping that this new one will make it worth the wait. Here's everything you need to know courtesy of Cnet.
Microsoft has unveiled the new Xbox, and it's called Xbox One. It's Microsoft's first new console in over seven years. Yes, we've had many expectations for this console, especially since Sony and Nintendo have already taken their first steps in the next-gen landscape. Here's what you need to know that was announced at Microsoft's event in Redmond.
The original Xbox debuted in the fall of 2005, which feels like a million years ago...even if it's only seven and a half. It's high time for a new console, even if some tech pundits are questioning the value of gaming hardware platforms in the current age.
Microsoft promises that you're "going to have a relationship with your TV." The next Xbox tries to take on a living room that has become "too complex," and make a system that knits games, TV and entertainment.
So, how will that happen?
There are universal gestures such as grab and pan and swipe up: watching live TV will involve maximizing and minimizing the screen in a top corner. Live TV will be part of the Xbox One experience, via HDMI-in. Yes, cable TV looks like part of the package.
The Xbox One knits together new voice commands to do some PC-like stuff: order movie tickets, for instance, engage in Skype, or pull up fantasy sports stats while watching a game.
Under the hood, details so far include: an 8-core processor, 8GB of RAM, Blu-ray, USB 3, HDMI in/out, and a 500GB hard drive. Besides all of this, Microsoft is promising a new operating system fusing Xbox and Windows.
Xbox One architecture has "three operating systems in one": Xbox, a kernel of Windows (perhaps like Windows RT), and a multitasking interface. The idea seems to be that this console will be a multitasker at heart.
A new Kinect comes with the Xbox One, with improved accuracy. There’s a 1080p camera, Skype connectivity, and understanding of rotational movement in a structure like skeleton. Microsoft even claims the new Kinect can read your heartbeat. It can also recognize your controller, not just your hands--suggesting use cases that sound a little like the PlayStation Move’s wand.
The Xbox controller’s gotten a revamp with an integrated battery, improved ergonomics, a better d-pad, and improved-response triggers. It looks similar but has gotten a bunch of gamer-oriented tweaks.
The tablet-based SmartGlass experience will be around on Xbox One, and will work as before with a variety of phones and tablets.
Built on the existing service and user names, the new Xbox Live promises 300,000 servers for Xbox One, a whopping number. Matchmaking services will work while doing other tasks like watching movies or web-browsing, and bigger, faster-connecting matches are promised, too.
Microsoft plans 8 new franchises for the Xbox One in the first year, a hopeful sign for a platform that’s become too sequel-dependent. Of course, Forza 5 was shown off, but a new game called Quantum Break from the developers of Alan Wake looks like the sort of game we’re more used to seeing from PlayStation: a big-studio design and cinematic feel.
TV on Xbox
“Xbox is going to be the next water cooler.” That was said during the Xbox event to discuss the Xbox One's role as a social TV platform. To that end, it sounds like Microsoft is developing TV shows and original programming for the Xbox One, making a greater leap into Netflix-like original programming. Steven Spielberg announced a new Halo TV series, and the NFL demonstrated some level of interaction with fantasy stats and Skyping with NFL broadcasts.
The Xbox One will be available "later this year," so that means 2013 after all. Price and a specific date will have to wait...after all, E3 is just weeks away.

Saturday Night was the season finale of Saturday Night Live. Ben Affleck did a great job hosting, but the show was bittersweet. It was Bill Hader's last show and possibly Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis. Some site's say it was Fred's last, but other say unconfirmed. One of my favorite characters that Bill does is New York party scene correspondent Stefon. I like it when Stefon is on Weekend Update because of the fun that Bill and Seth Meyers(who's leaving SNL at the end of the year to replace Jimmy Fallon on Late Night who is replacing Jay Leno). The 2 of them crack up during this sketch everytime they are on together. They did a great send off for Stefon, check it out below.
Fred, Bill and Jason get some help from some friends with this send off song. See if you can name the musicians.
Here's the full trailer for the new SHIELD tv show coming this fall to ABC.
