Trailer For The Crazy-Looking Animated Series DALLAS & ROBO with John Cena and Kat Dennings

It appears that YouTube Red is moving forward full steam ahead. Cobra Kai was a bigger success than anticipated, which is leading to the company to look for more and more good programming. We now have a trailer for a new animated show called Dallas & Robo in which Kat Dennings will voice a cowgirl trucker and John Cena will voice her robotic pal.

This is definitely not a show for kids, but if you’re a fan of BoJack Horseman, you’ll be happy to hear that director Mike Roberts is one of the creators and executive producers. 

DALLAS & ROBO is an animated comedy from YouTube Originals about best friends and dysfunctional space truckers Dallas Moonshiner, a boozy ex-stock car racer (Kat Dennings) and Robo, a hulking A.I. with a sensitive side (John Cena.) As they haul their cargo all over the galaxy, they also run out on bar tabs, bicker with rival truckers,and tussle with outlaw cannibal bikers who terrorize the space lanes.

Dallas & Robo will air on YouTube Red starting May 30, 2018.

Wonderfully Funny Trailer For Steve Martin and Martin Short’s Netflix Comedy Special

Netflix has released the first trailer for the upcoming Steve Martin and Martin Short comedy special, Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget For The Rest Of Your Life.

Steve Martin is one of my favorite comedians of all time. His style of comedy is timeless and I've always found him to be so damn funny. He's unlike any other comedian out there and he's one hell of an entertainer. It's so cool to see that he's teamed up with Martin Short, who I also think is great, to do a show together. I really enjoyed what I saw in this first trailer and I'm looking forward to watching the special! I know this style of comedy isn't for everyone, but I grew up with it, so I enjoy it.

Martin and Short filmed the special at the Peace Center in Greenville, South Carolina while on their ongoing national tour. So for fans who aren’t able to see the two comedians live, they have this feature to look forward to and more. The special will have all-new material that viewers will enjoy in the form of musical sketches and conversations about their storied careers. Expect the wildest exchanges that encompass their lives in the topsy-turvy worlds of showbiz and stand-up.

The special was directed by Marcus Raboy and it will feature a soundtrack by Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The Steep Canyon Rangers and renowned jazz pianist and Jimmy Kimmel Live band member Jeff Babko.

Steve Martin and Martin Short: An Evening You Will Forget For The Rest Of Your Life will be released on Netflix next weekend on May 25, 2018.

DEADPOOL 2 Star Morena Baccarin Wants to Play Catwoman in The DCEU and She’d Be Purrrfect

Warner Bros. is still in the process of building out their DC Cinematic Universe and with that comes a film based on Gotham City Sirens, which would bring together Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn.

David Ayer (Suicide Squad) is developing the film and Margot Robbie will reprise her role as Harley Quinn. But, we have no idea who will play Catwoman and Poison Ivy. During a recent Instagram live Q&A, Morena Baccarin was asked if it was true that she always wanted to play Catwoman and she replied with:

"It's so true! I've wanted to play Catwoman forever."

I personally think that Baccarin would be perfect for the role! She's got the look, the attitude, and personality, so it would make perfect sense to cast her in the role. I know she has already played Vanessa in the DC series Gotham, but that's completely separate from the films, so that shouldn't be an issue.

One of the next DC films that are going into development is Birds of Prey, but I don't know if Catwoman would be a part of that. Other than Harley Quinn, it's unclear what other characters will be involved. But, it is primarily based in Gotham City, so we'll have to wait and see. 

What do you think about Morena Baccarin taking on the role of Catwoman? Would you like to see that happen?

Shout! Factory to Bring Series that Saved SUPER SENTAI to America

Many people know that Power Rangers is based on a Japanese series called Super Sentai. Essentially, each new Power Rangers series uses footage from a different Super Sentai series and they don’t always go in order.

What else is cool is that Shout! Factory has been bringing the Super Sentai series over to America with English subtitles, but they started with the one that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers was based on, Kyoryu Sentai Zyuranger, without going before it. That all changes this year.

Shout! has plans to release Chōjin Sentai Jetman later this year. Not only is this the first Sentai series to come from America from before Zyuranger, it’s also the series that saved Super Sentai from almost being canceled in the early 1990s.

One of the Coolest Scenes From AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Recreated in LEGO Stop-Motion

I don't know about you, but I enjoy it when fans recreate trailers and movie scenes with LEGO bricks and minifigs using stop-motion animation. It's one of the simple joys in life. I've got another fun one for you today that was created by Huxley Berg, who re-created one of the coolest scenes from Avengers: Infinity War. If you haven't seen the movie yet for some reason...

The scene that has been recreated in LEGO awesomeness is set during the battle of Wakanda when Thor, Rocket and Groot arrive to help them with Thor's new hammer of death. Now, enjoy the action-packed scene... LEGO style! 

New HBO Docuseries THE CASE OF ADNAN SYED Picks Up Where SERIAL Left Off

If you're someone who listens to podcasts, you're undoubtedly familiar with Serial. The true-crime podcast made waves in its first season centered on Adnan Syed was so powerful it convinced a judge to set aside Syed's original conviction for murder and call for a new trial. Serial has waned in popularity since then, but the ongoing trial of Syed has not. HBO will recall the original tale as well as bring everyone up to speed with what's happening in the present with its four-part docuseries The Case of Adnan Syed (via HBO). You can check out a fairly meaty synopsis below and let us know what you think:

In production since 2015, THE CASE AGAINST ADNAN SYED closely re-examines the events leading up to Hae Min Lee’s disappearance, from high school romance, forbidden love and cultural conflict, to the aftermath of her disappearance, the original police investigation and the present day, when Syed awaits a new trial. Presenting new discoveries, as well as groundbreaking revelations that challenge the state’s case, and featuring exclusive access to Syed, the defense team, the Syed family, friends and teachers of Hae Min Lee and Adnan Syed, and members of City of Baltimore law enforcement, the series traces how the rush to justice and Syed’s conviction in 2000 raised more questions than answers about what happened to Hae Min Lee, underscoring the instability of memory and conflicting eyewitnesses.

Unfortunately, no release date or trailer has been provided at this time.

Check Out This Cougar’s Owen Wilson Impression

check-out-this-cougars-owen-wilson-impression-social.jpg

This isn't the best Owen Wilson impression I've ever heard, but I'll let it slide because it's a damn cougar! In all seriousness, this cougar saying "wow" isn't that far off from Wilson, it's just that some people really have a good Owen Wilson impersonation. That's probably due to the fact that most people really only say "wow" in a weird way, and don't try to take it any further than that. I'm getting off track, check out the cougar saying wow, and then let us know how you think they did:

Portia de Rossi Explains Why She Left Acting Minus ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT

In case you've been wondering where Portia de Rossi has been in recent years, she's apparently retired from acting. Well, minus Arrested Development anyway, although it sounds like she more or less had her arm twisted into appearing in the series again more than anything. Listen to Rossi's explanation of why she's back for the show below, and catch that funny joke by her wife Ellen right at the end:

Have you ever wondered what it was like to operate a mission where messing up means something terrible could happen or someone can die? You will now after watching this 8 hour livestream from NASA of an incredibly long space walk!

Spiel Des Jahres Announces Their Nominations For Best Tabletop Games Of 2018

As Summer approaches I always get that same feeling in the pit of my stomach. Gen Con is just around the corner, and I'll soon be immersed in four days of non-stop board gaming fun. Before that though, there's the Spiel des Jahres which is the most prestigious tabletop award a game can get. Put simply, the games that get these awards sell well, and are always a blast to play. Without further ado, here are the nominations for this year's top contenders coupled along with links to buy in case you were interested in trying a few of them out!

Spiel des Jahres award: This is usually the award for the game that's the most family-friendly and or accessible to people who don't typically play tabletop games. 

• Azul, by Michael Kiesling from Next Move Games
• Luxor, by Rüdiger Dorn from Queen Games
• The Mind, by Wolfgang Warsch from NSV

Kennerspiel des Jahres: This is the award for the game for people who are more than familiar with the modern world of tabletop, and probably don't need someone describing to them what the Kennerspiel des Jahres is.

• Ganz schön clever, by Wolfgang Warsch from Schmidt Spiele
• Heaven & Ale, by Michael Kiesling and Andreas Schmidt from eggertspiele
• Die Quacksalber von Quedlinburg, by Wolfgang Warsch from Schmidt Spiele

Two German games this year, although I'd expect an English adaptation to be released sooner than later now that both are nominated. 

Kinderspiel des Jahres: Games geared towards children. These games are still usually pretty fun, but the emphasis is that most young children can play them with ease.

• Emojito!, by Urtis Šulinskas from HUCH!
• Funkelschatz, a.k.a. Dragon's Breath, by Lena and Günter Burkhardt from HABA
• Panic Mansion, a.k.a. Shaky Manor, by Asger Harding Granerud and Daniel Skjold Pedersen from Blue Orange Games

I usually make a point to try and play every Spiel Des Jahres nominee when I get to Gen Con in addition to the stuff I think you guys would be interested in, so keep it here with GeekTyrant in August to see what we think of the games!
