I am pretty sure everyone knows I am a huge fan of films. I came across this trailer today of a new movie coming out. It was made by Haxan Films who brought us the Blair Witch Project, so it's that "we found the footage" kind of film. Looks pretty good though! Check it out...

"The Expendables 3" (PG-13)
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Arnold Schwarzenegger are all back from the last movie. And there are a TON of new additions.

"Let's Be Cops" (R)
Damon Wayans Jr. and Jake Johnson from "The New Girl" dress up as police officers for a costume party . . . and are so convincing, they're mistaken for REAL cops by everyone in the neighborhood . . .

"The Giver" (PG-13)
Brenton Thwaites lives in a "perfect" society where people can't see color or feel the full range of human emotions, because of an injection they get every morning.

by AJ Silver posted Aug 15 2014 12:13PM put out a list of The Top 10 Summer Country Songs.  They went heavy on newer artists but did putALAN JACKSON'S 1993 hit "Chattahoochee" at #1.  LITTLE BIG TOWN'S "Pontoon" is second.  Here's the list:


1.  "Chattahoochee"Alan Jackson


2.  "Pontoon"Little Big Town


3.  "Toes"Zac Brown Band


4.  "Drunk On You"Luke Bryan


5.  "Strawberry Wine"Deana Carter


6.  "Something Like That"Tim McGraw


7.  "Sunshine and Summertime"Faith Hill


8.  "No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems"Kenny Chesney


9.  "Sweet Summer Lovin'"Dolly Parton


10.  "Water"Brad Paisley



(What would you add?  I can't believe they bypassed Florida Georgia Line's "Cruise".  Maybe they're tired of it.  I'd add Jake Owen's "Barefoot Blue Jean Night", Clint Black's "Summer's Coming" and Brad Paisley's "Beat This Summer".)

There have been some great characters on TV who weren't originally supposed to last . . . like on "Lost", Dr. Jack Shephard was initially going to DIE in the first episode. E! Online has put together a list of "19 TV Characters Who Lasted Way Longer Than They Were Supposed To." Here are 10 of them: 
1. Sue Sylvester on "Glee". When "Glee" was starting, Jane Lynch was working on a Damon Wayans pilot . . . and could only commit to a small, recurring role. But when the other show wasn't picked up, "Glee" became her full-time gig.

2. Dylan McKay on "Beverly Hills, 90210". The higher-ups at Fox didn't like Luke Perry or his character, and only had him doing two episodes. And even then, Aaron Spelling had to pay him out of his own pocket. But when Fox saw how the audience loved him, they made him a regular cast member.

3. Sophia Petrillo on "The Golden Girls". It's hard to imagine the show without Estelle Getty, but her character was only meant to appear in the pilot. However, viewers loved her so much that she ended up sticking around.

4. Andy Bernard on "The Office". Ed Helms was originally signed on for only 10 episodes, but his personality matched so perfectly with the character that the writers had in mind that they brought him back as a regular.

5. Ben Linus on "Lost". Michael Emerson was only a guest-star at first . . . but they kept him around. Ben became one of the most compelling characters on TV, and Emerson went on to win an Emmy for the show's fifth season.

6. Mimi Bobeck on "The Drew Carey Show". Originally, Kathy Kinney's character had just a small part in the pilot. She was a woman in bad make-up applying for a job in the make-up department. But the viewers loved her, so they made her a regular on the show, as Drew's nemesis.

7. Summer Roberts on "The O.C.". Rachel Bilson was only supposed to play a, quote, "stereotypical mean girl BFF." But she was a hit . . . and later became one of the show's main stars.

8. Spike on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer". James Marsters' character was intended to be just another one-off villain for Buffy to defeat, but ended up being one of the most fully-developed characters on the show. He also joined the spin-off "Angel" as another "vampire with a soul."

9. Steve Urkel on "Family Matters". Jaleel White was only supposed to do one episode, as a nerdy guy who takes Laura on a date in the first season. But he was so popular that he kept being brought back . . . until the show became all about Urkel.

10. Frasier Crane on "Cheers". Kelsey Grammer was hired for six episodes of "Cheers", and went on to play the character for a full 20 years between "Cheers" and its spin-off, "Frasier".
