They’ve been putting out non-nude versions of the magazine in various overseas markets for years, and it’s done well in those markets. (The brand name still has at least some value left in it.) It's been moving towards being more of a generalized men's magazine for years, and the non-nude move will put it there for good. The magazine will still feature sexy pictorials, but they'll no longer have nudity.

While I have a moment to say something about Star Tr3k: damn, why y’all so salty, tho’?

Ohnoes! Shitloads of action! That’s all the movie is gonna be! Why must the trailer give away every bit of the movie like that? …jeez, it’s like you guys don’t even know what marketing is. NO SHIT the initial teaser is gonna show lots of action and shit—did you really expect a Picard-esque speech? And besides that, so what if there’s a lot of action? TOS used pulp space adventures and (for its time) "holy shit" visuals to draw people in, then offered up the social commentary and morals and whatnot. If ST:B can deliver an action-packed film with a solid message/theme lying underneath (and Fury Road proved that such a thing can be done), it will actually be closer to TOS in both spirit and execution than the first two NuTrek movies combined.

Seriously, get yer panties unbunched and give the film a sporting chance. At least wait for the next trailer before writing it off.

Because look at the first 2 movie trailers. Orchestrated music, epic emotional undertones. It felt like Trek. It showed action, but not for literally 100% of the entire trailer, cut to the fucking Beastie Boys of all things. I can understand if that was for a TV spot, but a reveal trailer is supposed to give us first impressions of what the film will be like. And my impression is that it's going to be a cheesy Marvel-style action flick.

It's being directed by someone who has only ever done brainless action movies, stuff on Community and some of the shittier episodes of True Detective. Definitely not my first choice when it comes to Star Trek. Though I guess it would be for JJ who has admitted he hates Star Trek in the past. You'd think he'd give the franchise a bit more respect after the last two movies but apparently not.

In all honesty it may very well be a decent movie. But the trailer is an embarrassment.

Hermione is now black, for the films..and I guess the books(?).

Never minded the art they did of her as it was rather cute. Just doing that for the films seems a bit odd given past casting since its supposed to be the same character (I think).

I didn't think they'd get Emma Watson since this is supposed to be a distant sequel or something. Chalk it up to be an AU like the Flash. Warner Bros needs that Harry Potter Dosh again.

Shit flinging over the fanart from the usual suspects is going to be fun. SJW fucks telling children to kill themselves for making her white and stuff..ugh.

She's racially ambiguous, which technically means no particular group is right. If you still want to think she's white, that's fine. If you think she's black, that's also fine. If you think she's Jakartan, well things get iffy, but if your headcanon includes the justification that she's adopted, biracial, or has a step-parent, you're still not wrong. Everybody wins. But to a large swathe of Tumblr, if you choose to depict such a character as belonging to any group other than the most stereotypically disprivileged ever, it makes you a bigot. Even if you are such a Jakartan just looking for some self-representation of your own, some people are going to jump on you anyway with the logic that "black people need the representation more", or that you're __washing a "canon" black character (even though no such thing was stated).

It's happened a lot of times in other fandoms. If you know anything about the infamous Hanji Zoe gender drama, the official statement is that Hanji is literally whatever gender you think they are including nonbinary, cis woman, or binary trans (wo)man. Basically, another "everybody wins" situation, but a lot of fans instead took this to mean Hanji is nonbinary only and anyone who admitted to headcanoning otherwise or used he/she pronouns got flamed and sent death threats. The same thing is happening with the player character from Undertale, even though a lot of the "guilty" party are East Asian artists whose English probably isn't good enough to even understand why people are yelling at them.

I do but it can be harder than you think. Sometimes things are worded in a way that they leak through, the terms are so ambiguous or are as frequently used to support good causes or call out things that actually deserve it as for hate.

And sometimes the people I follow are on the receiving end of the hate. I'm not going to unfollow a good content creator for that. It's like that one Rose Quartz meltdown. Even if the creator is a perfectly fine person, once some douchebag motivated by a petty personal grudge, fan of a rival pairing, or maybe a complete stranger who wants to start shit identifies something problematic in their work (then comes up with some warped justification for their original callout post if it becomes clear they were wrong in the first place), they gets tainted with an undeserved reputation for bigotry which invites continued unpleasantness from bandwagon jumpers long after the original incident has faded.

It's not like it's unique to Tumblr but the reblog system which the site is built upon is especially easy to twist for this purpose.

Articles catching why things like Creed and Force Awakens worked with the mix of Reboot/Sequel. But miss the films that tried to be just reboots and failed. Fantastic Four and Robocop being two of the films that come to mind for me.

Really wish the coming Ghostbusters had that same blend. Three down and out academics losing credibility working to redeem themselves. Find one of the old franchise tapes Ghostbusters Inc sent out. As a lark they send off for the franchise start up kit. We get more time the three they have their "Library Ghost" encounter and rush back to their HQ to find a slightly slimy and dusty crate with the faded Ghostbusters Logo on the box. In the crate are formulas and blueprints for the equipment along with a Tobin's Spirit Guide and set of four time worn jumpsuits... with all their names attached including the fourth who now just shows up at the door "You ladies won't believe what I've just seen. *cue spooky music stinger startup* "Oh, I think we would."

But nah some kinda Government MIB thing hiding the ghost from the public and stuff and fighting hordes of mook ghosts. Least according to the leaked pitch.

Because the way it is now it divides the fanbase instead of bringing things together. Hope others planning Reboots in the future take this hybrid approach. I think it works a lot smarter.

The problem with a reboot is that it is absolutely essential that the person at the helm gets it, what made the original work. It can be the "same thing only bigger" kind of remake, or taking just the basic elements and doing something different, but the spirit has to be there. Add the problem that a lot of these franchises that are being rebooted are from the 70s and 80s, and both Hollywood and the audiences being catered by Hollywood are simply not the same.

Like, just look at the recent Poltergeist reboot. It's essentially the same damn movie, but removing all the awe and wonder, the sense of adventure and challenging the unknow that complemented the horror so well in the original. My favorite scene in the original is that one where Tangina is explaining what's going in the house, and it's a fascinating moment of exposition, the impossible being elegantly described by writing, acting, and music. In the reboot, the equivalent scene basically was "hey mates, them ghosts be angry, yo". Way to miss the point.

Yea its the iconic nature that holds with people that and their animal growl siren. Especially the siren. Just hope it keeps to the fresh and raw nature of the Ghostbusters as they head out. "Never had a proper field test." Huddling into the corner of the elevator as they flip the switch on the Proton Packs. And that is also an iconic sound.

So much if the filim is iconic. Sights the sounds the lines. Making it so much New York via Boston and CGI as noted means many landmarks not being seen or looking poor. Beyond that we don't know the story is and that while every other film coming out this year has already shown multiple trailers. Someone doesn't know how to promote a supposed Tentpole franchise leading film.

In WWE? Depends on which roster you follow. Right now, the main roster is pretty depleted due to injuries (a running joke on /wooo/ said Bryan was responsible for those injuries as a result of not being cleared to wrestle), but Kevin Owens (the former Kevin Steen), Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks are still worth watching. Down in NXT, there are plenty of wrestlers worth checking out: Samoa Joe, Sami Zayn (who is totally not El Generico without the mask, no siree), Bayley, Asuka (the former KANA), Enzo Amore & Colin Cassidy, Finn Bálor, Apollo Crews (the former Uhaa Nation), and American Alpha (Chad Gable & Jason Jordan) are all standout talents right now, while indie star Austin Aries and New Japan standout Shinsuke Nakamura are both heading to NXT soon.

Everywhere else? That's a bit of a toss-up, and it depends on your tastes in what you like in terms of wrestling. PWG is the "indie supercard" promotion, and while it does tend to showcase some of the worst traits of indie wrestling at times, it always puts on a hell of a show with top-tier talent. If someone works a PWG show, they're more than likely good at what they do. ROH is where D-Bry got his start, and while it has fallen a bit since the glory days of Danielson and McGuinness, it still holds its place as the "#3 promotion" (by virtue of TNA being the "#2" [in more ways than one]). If you're looking for something a little different, I suggest checking out Lucha Underground—it’s filmed and presented more as a traditional television show than as a sporting event, and it just started its second season, so catching up on the first season storylines won’t be too big a hassle. (I do recommend watching as much of the first season as you can, though. LU put on a lot of legit great matches in Season One, including GRAVE CONSEQUENCES, Aztec Warfare, All Night Long, and the infamous Cero Miedo match from the season finalé.) If you have access to the AXS network, they run an hour-long New Japan show every week that features English commentary and subtitled promos; Mauro Ranallo did commentary for the show up until WWE hired him for Smackdown (where he's doing a good job), and legendary commentator Jim Ross will eventually replace Ranallo.

WWE's two main shows—Raw and SmackDown—air on USA (Monday and Thursday, respectively). NXT, which is WWE’s developmental show/Triple H’s insidious plan to destroy the indies, airs every Wednesday on the WWE Network. ROH has a weekly show, but it’s only broadcast on stations owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group (which owns ROH), so check local listings to see if it even airs in your area. NJPW on AXS airs on…well, AXS—every Friday at 9pm East Coast Time, to be exact. Lucha Underground airs on the El Rey network every Wednesday at 8pm East Coast Time.

Oh, and if you want to watch all that and more, /wooo/tube—420chan’s home for wrasslin’ streams and YouTube videos and such—typically shows all of them (and any other wrasslin’ they can get their hands on). There are even dedicated blocks to specific kinds of wrestling (/britwres/ for British/Euro wrestling, /luchatube/ for lucha libre, you get the point). You can check out /wooo/tube at http://taima.tv/r/wooo (or http://taima.tv/r/woooalt for a macro-less chatroom), but be warned: in addition to the chat being macro-heavy, taima.tv runs on a shitload of Javascript that can slow your browser down while it’s initially loading.

I'm wondering who in Hollywood finally cracked the code and created the Reboot/Sequel.

Fuller House is another of those that seems to get it.

DJ is Danny
Steph is Jessie
Kimmie is Joey

But also bringing the originals back into the mix to keep that base but also allow for forward momentum with a new generation.

This looks to be a formula that works letting the older fans and those who know the story combine with it while having new characters around for new fans.

As someone working on pitch material I find this to be an intresting formula to have been created or at least perfected. And wondering why Ghostbusters went with the utter failure of the Reboot in Name only (pretty much another film entirely) method that made Robocop such a steaming pile.

I'd be interested to hear it. I'm down on this film because all indicators show it to be one of the bad reboots.

Maybe the trailer coming out in a week or so will change that but the leaked pitch which still matches up with all the information we've gotten.

As funny and good as the original films were (YMMV with GB2), my liking those films does not entitle the “rebootquel” Ghostbusters flick to an automatic positive reception. You hang around places where people obviously believe otherwise. (Well, that, or they refuse to shittalk the film so they won’t be seen as sexist.)

I get it that it's thought to be inspiring lady scientists being badass but also it's overlooking what's been a thing for decades women being part of the Ghostbusters team and both boys and girls dressing in the suits. But hey the cartoons don't matter I guess.

We don't talk about Bane in this house. (I mean yes we do but) Nor Star Trek Nemesis.

Oddly enough he showed he had a great "gruff and menacing" voice in Bronson, which he was cast as Bane for. But he went with the Late Show Host voice instead. That's weird, definitely.
But he's made up for it. Legend, while unstructured and unstoried, was basically the Tom Hardy power hour, where he was cut loose and let act for two hours in a very solid couple of performances, so was, again, Bronson and again in Revenant - and Mad Max, while not a character piece of performance show, he still did a solid job doing the strong silent type.

Which is always kinda weird because he is 100% bisho.

Cool some people look enthused to be in the film.

And looks like Slimer will have his scene.

>“I play the FBI agent who works for the mayor,” revealed Williams when he popped into the Entertainment Weekly Radio studios on Thursday. “Our whole thing is, we’re going to tell the people it was a flash in the sky and ‘Run along little women with your ghosts, we got this.’

I’d feel bad for the guy if he could actually admit that maybe, just maybe, he made a film that didn’t work on any level. But if he wants to blame the film’s failure on critics saying “the movie sucks”, he’s passing the buck. Critics didn’t make a shitty movie; he did. The film had failures on multiple levels, but as director, he has to take the credit/blame for not trying to prevent (or at least undo) those failures.

I understand his anger. I do. But blaming “innocents” for the failures of his film—a film he directed and oversaw and attached his name to with pride—makes him a gigantic ass.

This is less about Gods of Egypt and more about the fact every movie he's made since i, Robot, itself heavily critiqued, has been a failure. Ironically he's a really good director on smaller indie projects, one of which he recently did and also failed.

He's scared he may literally never work in the industry again, which is not an excuse but you can kinda get it.

Well we knew what Slimer is "Class Five Full Roaming Vapor" according to the CDI classification system. And all other information coming from the more common known Tobins Spirit Guide and the lesser mentioned Spates Catalog.

I'm just speaking on what/who he'd been. Something people really didn't care about. It was interesting to speculate but not crucial and added to the mystery to how Ghosts formed other than that Zuul the Traveler was pulling them all to that area.

I did like that is was mostly hard science applied to the metaphysical realm of ancient deities from the stars.

So, 2016 decided to take someone else from the pro wrestling world…and boy, does this one hurt.

Eiji Ezaki, best known to his fans as Hayabusa, died yesterday of a subarachnoid hemorrhage. If the name Hayabusa sounds even remotely familiar to you in a pro wrestling context, I guarantee it’s because of one thing: the in-ring botch that paralyzed him back in 2001. But before that botched moonsault, Hayabusa was the “ace” for the FMW promotion in Japan. He was an amazing high flyer who carried that company on his shoulders and became an international sensation in the process.

Hayabusa became an inspirational figure when, more than a decade after his paralysis, he managed to walk again (albeit with the assistance of a crutch). Just last year, he did it again before a ceremonial ten-count, and he brought grown men to tears in the process. He’d always said that he intended to get back into a ring and wrestle one day; //youtube.com/watch?v=VTbOv9mZqt8youtube thumb is the closest we’ll ever get to that now, but goddamn if that ain’t a miracle in and of itself.

She's adorable, but sometimes I hate how absolutely fucking pandery Lum was designed to be.

Console yourself with the fact that there is no over-the-shoulder ass shot that goes against her spunky, cheerful, fun character.

Thats kinda why I always liked that mangaka, though. The characters could be sexy and cute at times but never against their character. And that famous "no panty shots please" is refreshing - no making it feel exploitative either!

She's not playing her usual type as that role was giving to someone else. Also this is meant to be a tent pole for a franchise.

If it doesn't make more than 300 to 500 they'll consider it a failure.
