The Ultimate Predator Looks Pissed in This New Promo Spot For THE PREDATOR

We've got a brief new promo spot for you to watch today for The Predator and it features a few new shots from the film including one of the Ultimate Predator looking pretty pissed off. I know not a lot of people are excited about this movie, but I am! I'm a big fan of the films that Shane Black as made and I looking forward to seeing how his Predator movie turns out. 

From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

The movie stars Boyd Holbrook (Narcos, Logan), Thomas Jane (The Punisher), Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse), Trevante Rhodes (Moonlight), Jacob Tremblay (Room), Yvonne Strahovski (Dexter), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Sterling K. Brown (The People vs. O.J. Simpson, This is Us), Keegan-Michael Key, and Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica).

Black co-wrote the script with his Monster Squad co-writer Fred Dekker, and it will be released in theaters on September 14, 2018.

THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS – P.I. Infomercial, “This Is Your Brian” PSA, and Puppets Read Reaction Tweets

Following the red-band trailer that was released earlier this week for The Happytime Murders, we now have four new amusing promo videos for you to enjoy. We've got a Phil Phillips P.I. Infomercial; a "This is Your Brian" PSA; a video of puppets reading trailer reaction tweets; and a "Don't Talk" PSA. 

There's been a lot of mixed reactions to this movie since the trailers have been released. Some people think it looks great, while others think it looks vulgar and disgusting. Regardless of what you think, the movie has gone out of its way to earn its hard-R rating. 

The Brian Henson-directed film stars Melissa McCarthy, Maya Rudolph, Joel McHale, and Elizabeth Banks. Here's the synopsis:

No Sesame. All Street. The Happytime Murders  is a filthy comedy set in the underbelly of Los Angeles where puppets and humans coexist. Two clashing detectives with a shared secret, one human (Melissa McCarthy) and one puppet, are forced to work together again to solve the brutal murders of the former cast of a beloved classic puppet television show.

The Happytime Murders hits theaters on August 24th, 2018. 

Glenn Danzig Is Directing Films Based On His Verotik Comic Books

apparently-musician-glenn-danzig-is-directing-movies-now-social,.jpg

Glenn Danzig of The Misfits and Danzig fame is taking a page out of Rob Zombie's book and getting into the world of directing. Blabbermouth is reporting the singer signed a feature film deal with Cleopatra Entertainment, and will be in charge of film adaptations of his popular Verotik Comics. 

Danzig is taking things further than directing, however, as he'll also be writing the adaptation and creating the score for the three film anthology series. Verotik has been running since 1994, so it's not like there won't be some people excited to see what Danzig can do. I don't know much about any of that admittedly, but I do know I used to rock out to "Mother," as a kid so I'm willing to give him a shot! Are you excited about this news?

Todd McFarlane Shares Humorous Photo With Stan Lee

Todd McFarlane might be busy working out the details of the upcoming Spawn film, but that doesn't mean he's too busy to spend time with a dear friend. Comicbook shared that McFarlane was spending some time with Stan Lee lately, and the Marvel man was in good enough spirits to pose for a joke photo with McFarlane:

... PROOF POSITIVE that my recent visit with @therealstanlee was the complete highlight of his day!!!! More photos later this week. TODD #stanlee #stan #goat #legend #joy #happiness #marveluniverse #marvel #cameo #spiderman #spawn #mcu #living #enjoylife

The buried headline in this photo, however, is that hashtag followed by the word "cameo." Are we to assume McFarlane was visiting Lee to gauge his interest in appearing in the Spawn film? We've learned this year Lee's cameos aren't exclusive to Marvel films, so perhaps the creator could make an appearance in this film! Would you like to see that?

Video Explores Just How Powerful A.I. Can Get

video-explores-just-how-powerful-ai-can-get-social.jpg

We're constantly joking about the robot uprising here on GeekTyrant, although honestly, robots may soon actually take over the world. No, it probably won't happen with killer super strong robots, but through a computer's ability to run through tons of information and connect it in a way humans aren't capable of. In case you weren't aware, A.I. has been doing impressive stuff like that for quite a while, and it might just be how it ends up taking over the world. Check out the video below, and start planning ways to go off the grid:

Watch: Man Wins Yo-yo World Championships With Awesome “Freebird” Routine

We like to take a look at what's going on in the fringe Geek circles from time to time, and our latest dive into the niche world of yoyo-ing unearthed something truly incredible. Hawaii yo yo legend Evan Nagao finally became the World Yoyo Contest champion, and he did it all while rocking out to Lynyrd Sknynrd. If you're even thinking of jumping to the comments to profess this as lame, you really need to watch the video first. I'm convinced just about anything is awesome if you pair it with "Freebird," and this might just prove my point!:

Maisie Williams Asked to Keep This GAME OF THRONES Prop After She Finished Filming

Maisie Williams just revealed the Game of Thrones prop that she got to keep after she finished filming and I doubt it’s what you think. I was expecting her to say Needle or Catspaw. After all, I’d love to keep one of the weapons my character used in a fantasy show. Those things look awesome! However, she asked for Arya’s brown jacket. What makes this better, is what Williams plans to do with the prop.

I can imagine it being something that I’m like, ‘Oh, I was on this show once upon a time and this was the jacket I wore. And my grandkids being like, ‘Please stop.’

Would you want your grandmother to shut up about the jacket she once wore on a famous TV show? What prop would you have wanted to keep?
