!! OMG, we need to talk about Barry: Ezra Miller to play The Flash in live-action feature film version !!

Ezra Miller, who you may know as Tilda Swinton‘s nightmare child in the film We Need To Talk About Kevin has been announced as Warner Brother’s choice for The Flash for their upcoming 2018 feature film version of the comic superhero!

“The Flash” story revolves around Barry Allen, a scientist who awakes from a coma and is gifted with the power of super speed. Allen is a part of the Justice League and it is expected that Miller will have some sort of cameo in the upcoming pic “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” where that team is likely to be unveiled.

This is great news! An openly ‘queer’ actor being cast as a major superhero! A total step in the right direction and great casting. After all, they may be super — but they still know what it’s like to be outsiders. Congrats to Ezra!

!! OMG, A possible first look at newly leaked ‘STAR WARS EPISODE VII’ footage !!

Screen Shot 2014-10-02 at 12.47.03 AM.png
New footage some claim contains our first look at Luke Skywalker‘s home on Skellig Michael Island has leaked. The images were posted and then quickly taken down, leading many to believe (along with the Disney watermark) that it has good reason to be legit!

We see the hooded Jedi traversing the unique and very rocky landscape to enter a cave, which is called Luke’s Refuge in the possibly leaked footage.
If this is indeed Mark Hamill, we never actually see his face as he remains hooded throughout the duration of the footage. It’s also possible that this is test footage, or teaser trailer footage shot not using the actor. TechnoBuffalo, who first discovered the video reports that “It is shot on a cell phone looking at a computer screen, so the clarity is not the best. From the lighting and quickness of the images, this feels more like test footage than final shots for the film.”

Check out more pics after the jump!

!! OMG, new short film starring Kirsten Dunst depressingly captures the ‘selfie’ generation’s lack of human interaction !!

The power of a great short film! In just two minutes, this short film by director Matthew Frost starring actress Kirsten Dunst sums up the world’s depressing obsession with cell-phones and selfies (and the lack of human-interaction that comes as a result). It basically does what a good horror film does.
Check it out below!

!! OMG, Will Ferrell drops hints of Zoolander sequel: MUGATU’s in it! !!

We’ve waited over 10 years for a Zoolander sequel — and now we may get it! Rumours are heating up surrounding the second instalment, and even Mugatu himself is chiming in:

We are actually supposed to do a read-through of a sequel script soon, and Mugatu is a part of it.

Justin Theroux has also spoke about his involvement in the upcoming sequel, saying:

“Yeah, we’ve got a script for the sequel, and we’ve just been in talks again,” he said. “We’re trying to sharpen it and hone it and, actually, I don’t want to jinx anything, but it looks like it actually might be starting to get up and running.”

If this is true, we really hope they bring dead model roommate Alexander Skarsgard and his Oakley’s back from the dead for this — at least in flashback! Maybe another Bowie cameo too? Are you excited for a Zoolander sequel? Who of today’s stars would fit into the Zoolander world?
