I’m very excited about HISTORY partnership with Comic-Con with the very first EVER external bag-check Knightfall‘s Guardians of the Gear at the Gaslamp MLK Promenade from July 20 – 23. ALL SDCC badge-holders will be able to store their bags for free next to the Holy Grail and under the guardianship of the Knights Templar. While you store your bags you can get a peak at the new History channel series Knightfall with personal photos of fans with the Knights Templar, a chance to see a snippet of the new show and a preview of the new mobile game Knightfall: Rivals on the Steam Platform™. They will also be distributing a prequel comic book from Titan Comics “Truth & Lies,” that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom – the Holy Grail.

“Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear” – July 20-23 – MLK Promenade

Knightfall

  • Thursday 7/20 11AM – 7PM

  • Friday 7/21 11AM – 7PM

  • Saturday 7/22 11AM – 7PM

  • Sunday 7/23 11AM – 5PM

KNIGHTFALL goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their complex relationship with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution, the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.

“Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear” – July 20-23 – MLK Promenade

HISTORY is setting the stage for SDCC attendees to discover its newest drama series “Knightfall” before it premieres by offering an essential service that is new to the convention – “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” The Holy Grail required protection of the Knights Templar, and SDCC attendees can count on that same protection for their own personal belongings by storing them in HISTORY’s “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” Located along the MLK Promenade in the Gaslamp Quarter, our knights will guard attendees swag while they explore the rest of Comic-Con.

Additionally at the Gaslamp activation location, attendees will be able to take a photo with the Knights Templar, watch a sneak peek of HISTORY’s newest drama series “Knightfall” and preview the Knightfall: Rivals video game on Steam Platform™, coming soon on mobile. Attendees will also be able to pick up a comic book from Titan Comics inspired by “Knightfall” entitled “Truth & Lies,” a prequel to the events in the forthcoming series that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom – the Holy Grail.

About “Knightfall”

“Knightfall” follows the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of destroying the Church itself. “Knightfall” goes deep into the inner sanctum of the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution on Friday the 13th—a date which became synonymous with bad luck—the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. “Knightfall” takes viewers inside the world to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.

“Knightfall” is an A+E Studios production in association with The Combine and Midnight Radio. Don Handfield and Richard Rayner serve as creators and executive producers, with Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Jeremy Renner also serving as executive producer. Dominic Minghella is executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers from Midnight Radio are Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg. Barry Jossen and Douglas Mackinnon serve as executive producers. The drama stars Tom Cullen (“Downton Abbey”), Pádraic Delaney (The Wind That Shakes the Barley, “The Tudors”), Simon Merrells(“Spartacus,” “Dominion”), Olivia Ross (War and Peace), Ed Stoppard (“The Crown”), Sabrina Bartlett (“DaVinci’s Demons”), Jim Carter (“Downton Abbey”) and Julian Ovenden (“Downton Abbey”).

Yes I’m late to the Woman Power Wonder Woman film that came out a few weeks ago. I’m alway son the fence about DC Comic movies since they are usually disappointing or <ehh>. My curiosity about Wonder Woman is that this is the first superhero film helmed by a woman actor AND director so my feminist senses have been tingling for a while. I started getting twinges with each cast announcement that didn’t fit with my idea of an Amazon Goddess and it’s just so damned white (yes I said it). I suspected that the women of color would most been the background with no speaking lines. But I was mildly

ANN WOLF – ARTEMIS

pleasantly surprised that it was more diverse than I thought it would be with the black nanny, Senator Acantha (Florence Kasumba) and Artemis warrior (Ann Wolf) (who had the body I would imagine closer to an Amazon but THAT would not appeal to as many male eyes <guffaw>). Having about 5 – 6 lines between them so an improvement over the no words I expected. I liked the film didn’t love it the way everyone else did but Wonder Woman isn’t one of my beloved characters and I would have preferred more time with the Amazon society and getting to know Diana and the warrior women more than Steve Trevor (Chris Pine). I didn’t get any fire from Diana more of a curiosity about sleeping with a guy than love or passion but Chris doesn’t seem to have much chemistry with anyone so <ehh>. The WWI aspect with interesting with a female villain Dr. Maru (Elena Anaya) who just wanted to use ‘SCIENCE’ to poison Germany’s enemies but I’m not sure they didn’t go into the scar and it seemed as if it was more of an unrequited passion for Ludendorff (Danny Huston) aka the male gaze. I did like that Diana’s fighting companions included the Chief (Eugene Brave Rock), Sameer (Saïd Taghmaoui) and Charlie (Ewen Bremner) who had backstories that I really want to learn more about in subsequent DC series (TV/Movies/Online content). It was interesting to watch a super hero so based in ‘real life’ so that it felt more like a war spy film than something out of comic book. It was visually lighter than most comic book films so I could really see what was going on and the basic story was fine. As far an an origin film for people who don’t know much about Wonder Woman mythology it was good just a bit slow for me with more filler than I would have liked and way too many characters so not everyone got enough screen time but I know what that means. We’ll see them in flashbacks in the sequel. I recommend the film for anyone who likes super hero comic book films, who want to support a female led film, a movie directed by a woman and likes the idea of warrior women. If you go in expecting Girl Power aka women of all colors than you will be disappointed but white feminism . 

If I refused to see films that don’t reflect my diverse life I’d likely never see a movie or watch tv again well a few shows but not some of my favorites. 

What do you think? Did you enjoy the film or did you decide to wait and watch at home? Leave a comment below or tweet me at cherry_LA with comments and thanks for reading!

I’m such a huge The Tick fan that I’m salivating over the big blue guy takeover at SDCC 2017

I’ve loved the tick from comic book to cartoon to live action and now he’s back with BFF Arthur on Amazon Prime in August! While my fellow Tickers and I count down the day to the new series on Amazon Prime if your in SoCal head to San Diego Comic Con!

Amazon Prime Member Lounge

Amazon is taking over this year with the Amazon Prim Member Lounge (membership has it’s privileges) and celebrating it’s first hero series. It’s going to be ALOT of blue with the fun starting in San Diego on July 20th! Geeks will be able to explore the world of the Tick with the Amazon Prime Video’s Tick Takeover! You can find this celebration of blue zaniness on the MLK Promenade (on the corner of 1st and J Street) that will be hard to miss with a 20 foot tall animatronic Tick head and ‘easter eggs’ that will get lucky fans some cool swag.

The Warehouse

Citizens can control the Tick’s emotions with levers that operate the giant 20ft animatronic build as well as a challenge based scavenger hunt to help our dynamic duo fight a group of evil doers. The multi room experience has four locations that fans of the series will remember – Goat’s Deli, Arthur’s Apartment, The Warehouse and The City Police Station.

The Tick Takeover will be open to the public Thursday, July 20th through Saturday, July 22nd from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm, and Sunday, July 23rd from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm at the MLK Promenade (corner of 1st and J street).

Goat’s Deli

The City Police Station

Arthur’s Apartment

 I’m excited that as a Amazon Prime Member we get to stream the pilot episode relaxing in the AC of our own private lounge <tee hee> and unlock digital badges hidden for exclusive member only swag! Matty Mo, the viral art sensation aka ‘the Most Famous Artist’ will create one-of-a-kind art pieces featuring Superian to share an “Instagrammable” moment from The Tick Takeover. The Most Famous Artist will also be responsible for creating and curating all the graffiti tags seen around The City.

Citizens can also call on #TeamTick on the streets of SDCC to help out like any self respecting hero! They’ll offer a hand to the helpless and defenseless and are easy to find with their Blue Antenna!

Season one of the new Amazon Original series, The Tick is streaming on August 25, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

 

About The Amazon Original Series, The Tick

Bursting with scabrous original storylines that turn on a dime, The Tick is a comedy with kinetic action, a wryly inventive visual style and crisply quotable dialogue. Heroes have flown among us for decades but mild-mannered accountant Arthur Everest (GRIFFIN NEWMAN) one day finds out there are also genuine bad guys in this new Amazon Original Series. He believes he has proof that The City, where he was born and raised, is actually controlled by a global super-villain known as the Terror (JACKIE EARLE HALEY). Destiny soon brings Arthur together with an eccentric, tall, blue-suited muscleman with a mysterious past and list of superpowers: The Tick (PETER SERAFINOWICZ). The title character serves as both the conscience and the unchecked id of the story. Citing the call of destiny, the Tick procures for Arthur a moth outfit with retractable wings and insists that he suit up as his sidekick. He and Arthur are the ultimate odd couple, but may just bring out the best in each other. In their quest to take back The City, the unlikely pair of heroes quickly sees just how complex the struggle between good and evil has become.

Archie fans let’s make a date on April 27th to see the CW’s Riverdale Premier Screening and Conversation at the Paley Center for Media

Alas if you did not buy tickets they are sold out but you may be able to screen it partially on Hulu or at the Paley Center archives. Of course the best way to avoid missing out on these great events is to join the Paley Center as a member with the benefits of early member only sales, events and supporting the museum in NYC/LA.

This series is turning the Archie comic book we grew up watching in a new direction and I LOVE it! I had a chance to chat with some of the cast and producers at Wondercon where we chatted about the process to bringing the comic book to network TV, that the show is based on the rebooted comic book series and that the hardest part was finding the perfect actors for the roles. Any fan who’s watching has to agree the chemistry and strong acting coupled with the writing has fans tuning in every week!

Archie, Betty, Veronica, Jughead and Josie are the core of the series but the entire cast from parents to the supporting cast has created a Riverdale that feels so real … I mean real where everyone is GORGEOUS it is on the CW <guffaw> so it’s still the dream hometown of America but with a naughty twist of teachers dating students, a HS getting pregnant, family rivalry, catty mothers, jerk dads and high school where EVERYONE feels out of place.

The PaleyLive event is one of many Paley Center year-round public programs that offer TV fans the opportunity to engage with the cast and creative teams of their favorite programs in exclusive and intimate events. All PaleyLive programs are selected by the Paley Center to not only to expand society’s understanding of the cultural, creative, and social significance of television, but also for their ability to educate and entertain the public.

WHO: KJ Apa,  “Archie Andrews”

Lili Reinhart, “Betty Cooper”

Camila Mendes, “Veronica Lodge”

Cole Sprouse, “Jughead Jones”

Marisol Nichols, “Hermione Lodge”

Madelaine Petsch, “Cheryl Blossom”

Ashleigh Murray, “Josie McCoy”

Casey Cott, “Kevin Keller”

with Mӓdchen Amick, “Alice Cooper”

and Luke Perry, “Fred Andrews”

Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Executive Producer

Sarah Schechter, Executive Producer

Drawing upon its curatorial expertise, an international collection, and close relationships with the leaders of the media community, the Paley Center examines the intersections between media and society. The general public can access the collection and participate in programs that explore and celebrate the creativity, the innovations, the personalities, and the leaders who are shaping media. Through the global programs of its Media Council and International Council, the Paley Center also serves as a neutral setting where media professionals can engage in discussion and debate about the evolving media landscape. Previously known as The Museum of Television & Radio, the Paley Center was founded in 1975 by William S. Paley, a pioneering innovator in the industry.

iZombie – Heaven Just Got a Little Bit Smoother

Image result for izombie

Warning spoilers for Tuesday’s iZombie

 

I was on pins and needles at the end of Season 2 trying to figure out what did everything mean! Well the season premier ‘Heaven Just Got a Little Bit Smoother’ answered a lot of questions and set up the overall moral quandary not only for Liv (Team Human or Team Zombie) and how her friends (human and zombie) will navigate the reality of what would happen if people learned that we have zombies among us.

On the S3 premier Tuesday Liv and Clive headed to Fillmore Graves HQ. It was the moment when it hit both of them that they were dealing with some major badasses with superhuman powers and the money to make life a lot simpler for assimilation. One of the more touching moments of this episode that will be a more emotional core for Clive is when he sees a cute little boy, Wally that used to live in his apt building. Neither of them had thought about zombie kids and what that would entail (education, living life and eating brains). I think as the season progresses the murder of Wally and his mother Anna will propel Clive to find who killed them and make zombies seem more like individuals. I suspect it might be a conspiracy nut who called into the radio station saying that he had ‘zombie’ neighbors after Liv & Clive weren’t able to stop the security guard from spilling the beans.

Liv and Clive driving to the radio station

I thought it was quite cleaver to take care of the investigation by blowing up the space so that it will burn up most of the bodies and forensic evidence. As well as getting to all of the survivors of the Chaos Killer to have a good cover story absolving Major. Sadly a few witnesses will not stop people from still thinking that Major is guilty and he WAS guilty so …. As Major tries to get back to normal he was reminded that it’s hard to find a job when people think your a serial killer! Luckily he’s a man with a special skill set so he signs on with Fillmore Graves. Hopefully Vivian never learns that HE killed her husband cause she doesn’t seem like a forgiving type of woman! But Major is basically a decent guy which is why he didn’t kill anyone but he still kidnapped people and left the entire city terrorized. His new life is going to have him evaluate what he wants to do next from taking the cure to finding the hooker with a heart of gold or embracing the life of a mercenary and how those decisions will affect his friendships. It wasn’t the life he planned as a teacher!

It’s always good to be rich and as Vivian Still, CEO of Fillmore Graves begins to use her position to set up a Zombie Homeland off Seattle. As they prepare for ‘Discovery Day’, when humans learn about their brain-eating living dead neighbors the plan is to have a self sustaining place for them to live with schools, homes and of course her mercenary business! I can imagine a LOT of people wanting to hire some undead mercenaries <guffaw>. I mean they are mercenaries so how moral can the business or leadership truly be??

Liv is coming off the mercenary brain and is having some major emotional fallout after she had to

Girl you need some bronzer and hair dye!

shoot her zombie boyfriend when he was brain crazy and going to kill Clive (BFF). I think this season is going to be a major upheaval for the entire gang from Peyton, Ravi and Blaine love triangle as she’s torn between a sexy good doctor or a sexy drug dealing kingpin … such a hard choice! Not that Ravi doesn’t have a LOT on his plate with only 19 cures and no way to make more and working on offsetting the memory loss he’s going to be one busy doctor. I’m also thinking his arch-nemesis who fired him might come back to the lab as she tries to figure out WHY the body was in such a advanced state of decay and had brain in the stomach! I’m not sure how Liv & Ravi will explain that but am sure it will be a doozy of jumping through hoops.
