We talk about Kickstarter quite a bit here on Cinema Blend, as the crowdfunding website is used to raise money for movies, video games and more. But now shit is getting real, as the most insanely awesome cooler has broken a record and become the highest earning project in Kickstarter’s five-year history, with over $10.9 million raised as of this writing.
There’s nothing quite like the local news. Send reporters out into a local community, and you have no idea what type of people they’ll meet. Most of the time, these strangers wind up being average enough, but now and again, they come across someone or something truly special, like, for example, a random guy and his beloved Hulk statue.
Superman is a valuable treasure to the comic and film worlds alike. But you'll never guess how much the Man Of Steel is worth in print!
The best thing about awards shows is not watching the biggest music acts in the world perform their biggest hits. With an unfamiliar stage and a need to play to the camera, it’s really hard for these bands/ solo artists/ groups to deliver anything approaching quality.
It’s safe to say that fans are interested in Game of Thrones news, whether it be about HBO’s hit series or the Song of Ice and Fire books written by George R. R. Martin. I wish we could finally tell you that the long-awaited Winds of Winter book is being prepped to hit shelves, but that would be a lie. What isn’t a lie is the news that Martin plans to kill off more of our favorite characters in the books moving forward.
Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey may have renewed their vows at the Happiest Place On Earth, but sadly, that Mouse House magic wasn’t enough to guarantee them a lifetime of bliss. The America’s Got Talent host and the popular pop singer have reportedly decided to split up and go in separate directions.
Once upon a time, those modern touch-screen seat-back TV screens seemed like a pretty great and high-tech bit of luxury for coach flying, but these days, most people board a plane with at least one device that offers them their own personalized viewing screen, which leaves the touch screen in front of them untouched. So it's not entirely surprising to hear that these screens are being phased out of many new long-range jets.
Contrary to what your Debbie Downer friends may have told you, the Ice Bucket Challenge is a success. Period. End of sentence. It doesn’t matter whether or not everyone mentioned ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease in their video.
And we’re down to three. The NFL has reportedly narrowed the pool from every musician in the world down to 2 solo acts and 1 band in the race to play the Super Bowl Halftime Show. The eventual winner and the two finalists and eventual losers are, in no particular order, Rihanna, Katy Perry and Coldplay.
Vin Diesel took on the ice bucket challenge, dumping a steel pot full of ice cubes all over himself before dropping the same challenge on three very familiar names: Michelle Obama, Angelina Jolie and Putin -- presumably Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Because why not?
Taylor Swift is ready to "Shake it Off" with a brand new music video and, coming soon, a new album! Fans were hopeful that today's big Yahoo Livestream featuring the pop star would deliver news that a new album might be on the way and sure enough, it's coming this October and it's titled 1989. That just so happens o be the year Taylor Swift was born. And maybe we're seeing a bit of 1989 in some of the hip hop and boom box action in the video above.
If you've been on Facebook or Twitter the past couple of weeks, you've likely been inundated by friends and family posting vids of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Of course, celebs have been getting in on the game too. So we've rounded up our favorites of these vids, toasting those who made their charity driving a joy to us all.
Harry Potter is clearly on J.K. Rowling's mind these days, and that's just as well as she's penning the screenplay for the anticipated Fantastic Beasts trilogy. But it isn't Hippogriffs and Hinkypunks that she's written about most recently.
Since Robin Williams’ shocking and tragic death earlier this week, many of the comedian’s biggest fans have been waiting for an a-ha moment that would suddenly explain why he took his own life.
The auction currently is underway. It’s scheduled to last for 10 days. To give you an idea of how this book could price, Nicolas Cage once owned a copy of Action Comics No. 1 that was slightly less pristine than the one in Adams’ hands. It sold back in 2011 for $2.16 million.
