KA-POW: First Look At Zachary Levi In ‘Shazam!’

Published

on

You know how we all have that one goofy uncle who is always trying to perfect the “pull my finger” joke at Thanksgiving? Well, Shazam is basically that uncle to the comic book world. Often compared to Superman because of the similarities in their powers, Shazam takes pride in their one major difference: having a funny bone that’s almost as super strong as he is. We will see the fun loving superhero hit the big screen in 2019 with Zachary Levi playing the titular role.

Earlier this week, we saw a first-look at Levi in his Shazam getup and talked about it here. Today, San Diego Comic Con gave a super first-look and premiered a trailer for the film. In the trailer we see Billy Batson adjust to life in his new foster home. He quickly forms a bond with his handicapped brother and comes to his defense when he is bullied at school. After his act of heroism, Billy is summoned by Shazam and given a special ability. From then on, whenever Billy utters the name “Shazam!,” he is turned into an adult superhero.

The trailer shows Shazam’s (sometimes failed) exploration of powers and looks to be a lot more fun and upbeat than most of DC Comic’s other films. Levi is known for his comedic roles, so this superhero might be the perfect fit. An exact release date has not been announced yet, but we are expected to see the film in theaters in April 2019. Until then, check out the trailer below!

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
