Quantcast

#StreamTeamWhen it comes to the Netflix Original Series WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER: FIRST DAY OF CAMP, the cast is just so huge, I can't help but wonder how come I'm not in this thing? Seriously (or not), the cast is immense, and if the 8-episode mini-series (which debuts July 31st on Netflix) is anything like it's just-released trailer, the laughs will be immense as well. The sequel to the 2001 cult film features Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, ANT-MAN himself - Paul Rudd (look for my interview with him coming soon), Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter, along with new characters played by Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, John Slattery, and more. Check out the preview below, but be warned - this is solely For Grownups!

On June 30th, Universal Studios Home Entertainment will unleash THE GUNMAN, the action-packed thriller from TAKEN director Pierre Morel! Starring Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Ray Winstone, Mark Rylance, Javier Bardem, the folks at Universal have teamed with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine to get two (2) lucky readers hooked-up with copies of the Blu-ray Combo Pack - now through July 6! Ready for your shot at adventure? Read on, my friends...

There's a November Holiday that I look forward to each year, and that's the release of a new CALL OF DUTY game. This year, it looks as if I'll have to finally make the upgrade to an XBOX ONE, though, as CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS III has been revealed for a November 6 release (dubbed "The New Black Friday"), and this time around it's going current-gen-only. Available for Sony PLAYSTATION 4, Microsoft XBOX ONE and PC, the game's first reveal trailer can be viewed below, and pre-orders are already up through Amazon, Gamestop and Best Buy.

What does $100K raised on Kickstarter get you? A lot of different things, I'm sure, but for Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine, $101,145 has funded the product of DIANI & DEVINE MEET THE APOCALYPSE, a new film starring a who's who of familiar faces from "some of their favorite stuff" (as noted in their crowdfunding pitch). The first teaser for the film has arrived, with pre-orders now up on their official site. Judging from this, it looks like MAD MAX with pretzels and a shopping cart. Check it out...

One of my favorite toy lines of the past year is one that falls into that "for the adult collector" category - ReAction Figures by Funko. First launched with a series based on a scrapped Kenner ALIENS line from the 80s, these figures take pop culture licenses from years past, and give them the action figures that they would have had should they had toys back in the days when the original, 5POA (five points of articulation) Vintage STAR WARS figures reigned supreme. Following figures from BACK TO THE FUTURE, THE GOONIES, PREDATOR and TERMINATOR, the folks at Funko are rolling out a series of six characters based on John Carpenter's 1986 classic, BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. This wave includes Jack Burton (Kurt Russell), Gracie Law (Kim Cattrall), and David Lo Pan (James Hong) alongside Thunder, Rain and Lightning. Check 'em out below...

On February 24, KID ROCK is back with his first release for Warner Bros. Records when FIRST KISS hits the streets. This week, the video for the title track arrived - a nostalgic tune that's getting a lot of comparisons to Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69" (especially that opening riff), and one that's got a lot of crossover appeal, but a real warm weather vibe to help with these cold months we're in. Check it out below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...
