The final season of HBO’s “True Blood” is almost here and we have the first official poster for season 7. You can see the poster above!

The series is based on “The Southern Vampire Mysteries” series of novels by Charlaine Harris, detailing the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional, small town in northwestern Louisiana. The series centers on the adventures of Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), a telepathic waitress with an otherworldly quality.

“True Blood” season 7 will be the final season with 10 episodes premiering on Sunday, June 22.

Along with Paquin, “True Blood” also stars Stephen Moyer, Sam Trammell, Ryan Kwanten, Rutina Wesley, Alexander Skarsgård, Chris Bauer, Kristin Bauer van Straten, Lauren Bowles, Anna Camp, Nelsan Ellis, Lucy Griffiths, Rutger Hauer, Arliss Howard, Rob Kazinsky, Todd Lowe, Joe Manganiello, Michael McMillian, Kelly Overton, Robert Patrick, Carrie Preston, and Deborah Ann Woll.

The show explores several contemporary issues, such as the struggle for equal rights, discrimination and violence against minorities and homosexuals, the problems of drug addiction, the power of faith and religion, the control/influence of the media, the quest for identity, and the importance of family.

First Poster for True Blood Season 6 Released

HBO has officially released the new poster for the upcoming 6th season of their hit series, “True Blood.”

Season 6 will pick up where season 5 left off with the creation of “Billith.” In the finale of season 5, Bill, effectively brainwashed by the ideals of the Authority, drinks the blood of Lillith, faces the “true death,” and rises a more powerful vampire than before. The new poster possibly references what is to come with its tagline which reads, “No One Lives Forever.” It is no secret that Billith is incredibly dangerous at this point and whether or not the vampire population will remain at relative peace with humans will surely be a major season plot after the events of season 5.  Continue reading

Bryan Singer Talks X-Men: Days of Future Past

X_Men___Days_of_Future_Past_by_wobblyone

Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past, recently discussed the new project and why it is his most ambitious one yet. One of the reasons it is so highly anticipated is that both casts of from the original X-Men films and the most recent X-Men: First Class will appear. Singer talked about X-Men: Days of Future Past in an interview with Empire.

When speaking about the sheer magnitude of the film and those involved, Singer mentioned how it was to work with both casts of the previous films as well as the ideas of time travel!

It’s epic. I don’t think people realize how big this movie’s going to be. We get to bring both casts together. We’ve cracked it in a way that it makes sense. I had a two-hour conversation with James Cameron about time travel, string theory, multiverses and all that. You have to create your rules and stick with them. That’s why Terminator and Back To The Future work so well. And there are certain mechanisms in X-Men, certain powers, perceptions and characters, that make this possible.”

In prospect of the combination cast, Singer addressed fans concerns that film will not adhere to the original source material.

It has a lot of aspects of the comic. The actual comic of Days Of Future Past had a whole ton of stuff going on, so it’s like any of these things; you have to distill it. But I think the fans will be pleased that some of the most exciting parts of Days Of Future Past are going to be connected to this movie.”

One of the major worries about X-Men: Days of Future Past has to do with continuity. Fans wonder whether the film will acknowledge the events of the previous films due to continuity issues, but Singer assures that every film in the series will be taken into account as canon.

“I’m taking into account every movie – I’m not just grabbing my first two movies and First Class and smashing them together. I’m taking into account the entire universe as it’s been laid out so far on the screen, and really respecting it and trying to work with that. People took things in various directions, so there’s some clean-up. But ultimately I’m not just ignoring them either.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past will hit theaters on July 18, 2014. Confirmed cast members for the film include Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore and Hugh Jackman.
