ET on HBO.[h/t: Watchers on the Wall]Want more stuff like this? So we may be better off just remember to check HBO Asia every so often, to see what they manage to get first.GoT Season 7 airs Sundays at 9 p.m. Like us on Facebook. But there are only seven episodes this season, instead of the usual 10, and there’s no telling how much intel they want to give away in advance. “The Spoils of War.” Good title! So will the attack still happen in Episode 3? But what does it mean?Episode 3, which airs this coming Sunday, July 30, is called “The Queen’s Justice” and has this synopsis: “Daenerys holds court; Cersei returns a gift; Jaime learns from his mistakes.” The promo shows Euron returning from his Episode 2 victory, and teases the very first meeting between Dany and Jon Snow.We also know that Dany was planning an attack on Casterly Rock, but the Episode 3 promo suggests that Cersei Lannister may be aware of that plan. Will Casterly Rock be one of the spoils of war, or will Episode 4 have an entirely different meaning?HBO should soon post photos teasing more of Episode 3, “The Queen’s Justice,” and we’re on standby for a new press release with details on the next few episodes. Posted July 25, 2017 by Gina CarboneFeel free to be nervous about “Game of Thrones” Season 7, Episode 4 based on the worrisome title.It’s not technically a spoiler, since it’s from HBO Asia, but so far HBO has only issued details on the first three episodes, so this is advance intel.And that intel says that Episode 4 is titled …

— ChristopherMcQuarrie (@chrismcquarrie) July 25, 2017Okay…M:I6 is scheduled to open, as promised, about a year from now on July 27, 2018. Like us on Facebook. Director McQuarrie referenced the kerfuffle on Twitter, aiming to defend the decision not to ax the stache for Superman:In exactly one year you’ll understand: The only way to keep a fake ‘stache on Henry Cavill would be a liberal dose of staples. will have to digitally remove the stache so Clark Kent doesn’t look like Clark Gable.The report included the note that Paramount is refusing to allow Cavill to shave for his mysterious “Mission: Impossible” role. Posted July 25, 2017 by Gina CarboneSome day the bards will sing of MustacheGate, and “Mission: Impossible 6” director Christopher McQuarrie swears that in exactly one year we’ll understand why it’s happening.You probably read that Henry Cavill’s mustache for “M:I6” is causing problems for the “Justice League” reshoots, and Warner Bros. Meanwhile, “Justice League” and its reshoots/digital-mustache-erasing is cutting things pretty close, since the movie opens in just a few months on November 17.Want more stuff like this?



Am I hearing this right? She still has to dump one of her final three — Peter, Eric Bigger, or Bryan Abasolo — somewhere along the way.So far, fans LOVE to look at dreamy Peter, even if he’s a bit formal and personality-challenged, and respect his caution when it comes to maybe not proposing after just a few dates. Rachel got very defensive for Bryan when her family didn’t like him, and that has actually been a good sign for past Chosen Ones, so the road may still be leading to Bryan as Rachel’s current fiancé. Eric is still there, too.Rachel wants to BE engaged SO badly that’s she’s willing to pick the WRONG guy instead of just wait for the right one 🤦🏼‍♀️ #TheBachelorette

Bryan: Ive loved u since before u were born. He’s taking it all seriously. Posted July 25, 2017 by Gina CarboneRachel Lindsay is firing back after “The Bachelorette” edited her engagement conversation with Peter Kraus to an extent that left everyone confused.Last night’s (July 24) episode ended on a cliffhanger, during Rachel and Peter’s “devastating” conversation about whether he would or would not propose in the August 7 finale. It’s all I talk about #theBachelorettehttps://t.co/x0bi7bxRzt

— Rachel Lindsay (@TheRachLindsay) July 25, 2017
If Peter doesn’t want what she wants, or doesn’t want it with her, then he might be out. Or something.The conversation left fans a bit confused, and Rachel jumped on Twitter to clarify:Engagement doesn’t mean marriage to her? So far, the new one has not changed. She didn’t want to leave with just a boyfriend — doing the old school “let’s just see where this goes in the real world” — she wanted more of a demonstrative commitment than that, but not necessarily jumping into marriage. (She did confirm, back in May, that she was engaged and happy.)FYI, if you’re a spoilers person, the original spoiler changed after a few weeks. Holmes (@tjholmes) July 25, 2017This was the chopped and screwed version of my response.

— ashley (@atherealitys) July 25, 2017ABC knew what it was doing to cut the episode during Rachel and Peter’s talk, since the fandom is kind of split between Team Pachel for end game and Team Peter for Bachelor.Peter basically let Rachel know he’s not ready to propose to her, because to him an engagement means marriage and he only wants to propose (on “The Bachelor”) and get married once. Rachel seems smitten with Bryan, but fans agree with her family that he comes off as insincere. Like us on Facebook. Obviously Engagement means marriage 2 me. The show will be doing the “Men Tell All” next week, so we won’t see the fallout from this talk, or find out who Rachel picked, for two weeks. Rachel’s reaction to that was a source of confusion to fans, because she said she didn’t see engagement the same way. #TheBachelorette@TheRachLindsay

But in terms of “The Flash” … Posted July 25, 2017 by Gina CarboneHope you weren’t just watching “The Flash” for Harry Potter alum Tom Felton. That could change, but for now it sounds like he’s out.Felton joined “The Flash” in Season 3 as Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) CSI supervisor Julian Albert, and as a love interest for Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker). he could always pop up again later, there’s just no news on that front right now.”The Flash” did, however, announce some other casting: Neil Sandilands will play villain Clifford Devoe, a.k.a. But Season 4 is jumping ahead six months, with Barry trapped in the Speed Force, and it sounds like Julian will no longer be on the team.Julian was not seen in the Season 4 trailer, and Felton was not at San Diego Comic-Con. We do know he’ll be playing Daisy Ridley’s brother Laertes in the movie “Ophelia,” since he was recently in Prague shooting the movie. According to multiple reports, Felton won’t be returning as a series regular in Season 4, and he’s currently not booked to come back on a recurring or guest-role basis. The Thinker, and Kim Engelbrecht will play The Mechanic, with Danny Trejo cast as bounty hunter Breacher.”The Flash” Season 4 premieres Tuesday, October 10 at 8 p.m. Like us on Facebook. on The CW.Want more stuff like this?



Comments – wpDiscuz. Gravity Forms. A long time ago, I used Disqus for comments, but the load time and reliability weren’t so great. Redirection. Google search prioritize results that are mobile friendly, so everyone should have a site that looks great and works well on mobile devices. Note from Jane:   This post is occasionally updated to keep up with changes in the WordPress ecosystem and reflect the evolution of my own site. This used to be my go-to plugin for forms until I bought the premium plugin Gravity Forms. WordPress Plugins I Highly Recommend

WordPress SEO by Yoast. (See next items). This is pretty much the standard and free version that most people use. The AMP plugin accomplishes that without you having to know or do anything fancy. If you’ve been blogging for a long time, or have large volumes of content available on your site that people need to search/sort through, Relevanssi is an invaluable plugin for helping streamline the search functionality of your website. AMP. This makes sure that the AMP plugin plays well with your Yoast plugin, plus gives you customization options for AMP. Try it for free by downloading the “lite” version. If you add Stripe functionality—also available from Gravity at an additional cost—then you can accept credit card payments through your Gravity Forms. Gravity is hands down the best plugin for building advanced and feature-rich forms on your site. You can avoid the “bad” ones by choosing highly rated and popular plugins that are frequently updated. Email Address Encoder. A Few Others I Like

Magic Action Box Pro. Much of the functionality you need, someone else needs, too—which means there’s probably a plugin that provides it, without you having to hire additional help or learn how to change the WordPress code. This plu-in is like a friendly SEO expert looking over your shoulder (in a good way), to help you optimize your pages, posts, and site metadata. Poorly written plugins can be buggy and present site security risks. But before I get to the list of plugins I love and recommend, there are some risks to using them:

First, plugins can sometimes conflict with your WordPress theme. Without further ado, here’s my list of indispensable WordPress plugins. Image Widget. What WordPress plugins can’t you live without? Again, add them carefully and study the results. This helps manage 301 redirects and keeps track of 404 (page not found) errors. Basically, this means that if permalinks of my pages or posts change for some reason, I can redirect people easily and quickly. Akismet. (Anything that hasn’t been updated in more than a year is best avoided.)
Plugins can make your site run more slowly, but the trade-off is usually worth it. This is the solution I chose, and I like it much better. As every WordPress site owner knows (at least those of you who self-host), plugins are one of the most wonderful and useful things about WordPress. Every site should have a contact form. This is the plugin developed by the WordPress folks themselves and is kind of like getting about two dozen plugins in one. Contact Form 7. If you manage contributors to your site, or use outsiders to help edit or manage your content, this plugin can help you manage what permissions they have behind the scenes. This is a simple plugin that easily allows you to add images to the widget sections of your website (usually the sidebar and footer). You should add them carefully and one at a time—and ensure that everything works the same as it did before. Plugins may also interfere with each other. Relevanssi. One way to do that is to optimize for AMP (Google’s initiative to make websites load fast on mobile). Jetpack. If you upgrade Jetpack, it c an also provide you with security scanning and backups of your site. OK, now it’s your turn. Essential for stopping comment spam and might even be pre-installed for you. User Role Editor. I use Jetpack for lots of functionality across my site, such as: sharing buttons at the end of blog posts and pages, show related content after posts, brute force attack protection (makes your site more secure), better image loading, and downtime monitoring. You can make it as simple or as complex as you like, and also create multiple contact forms. If you don’t actively use a plugin, it’s best to deactivate and delete it. This premium plugin creates call-to-action “boxes” at specific places on your site—e.g., at the beginning and end of every blog post or static page, or wherever you manually add it. If something “breaks” soon after you add a plugin, that’s the most likely cause of the problem. Read more about it here. Glue for Yoast SEO & AMP. This plugin is ideal even for people who don’t know what SEO means—in fact, it’s a good place to start. Just make sure your site is secure (has an SSL certificate) before you accept payments directly through your site. This ensure that spammers and other bad actors can’t scrape your email address from your website. If you consistently have a range of books or products to offer your readers, you’ll love this.

In just under four minutes, the Jamaican artist packages a story of corruption into a catchy song that allows the message to sink in deeper with each replay of the single. SHARE / Jul 25, 2017 01:44 pm

Today, Protoje brings his words to life with cinematic visuals for his latest single. Protoje’s single “Blxxd Money” is definitely the latter. Director, Che Kothari explains that “Blxxd Money” had the instant energy of a soundtrack. Many of us only picture the beautiful, carefree side of the tropical island but “Blxxd Money” tells the tale of two cities by bringing attention to the darker realities that are swept under the rug.“There is a lyric in the song that says: ‘If what you see nuh really phase you, then you are the problem that we face too,’” Protoje explains. “The visual is aimed to enhance the storytelling found in the song, illustrating how corruption at the top will inevitably make its way to the ground,” says Kothari. However with every corner of the globe at his fingertips, Protoje is careful to consider the impact of his words and in turn, uses his platform as a means to highlight topics that are near to his heart. Protoje Delivers Cinematic Visuals for Powerful “Blxxd Money” Single

There are some songs that need interesting visuals to make it more appealing, and others that are so vivid that the entire picture instantly paints itself within each listener’s mind.  It’s easy to create quick, formulaic music that only aims to keep the party going. “The song itself speaks more about corruption on a high level, but with the video we wanted to illustrate how corruption seeps through all levels of society, and how we often become complicit in its perpetuation.”

Posted July 25, 2017 by Scott HuverKing T’Challa ruled at Comic-Con.Marvel’s upcoming film “Black Panther” was one of the major success stories of Comic-Con International, with preview footage from the movie prompting a riotous standing ovation from the fan-filled crowd. You only worry about it when somebody is not going to be able to bring it, and you have your moments where you’re like, “Oh, that was amazing. When you finally get to show it to these fans, who are absolutely dying to see it, how do you feel?Chadwick Boseman: Honestly, I wasn’t even worried about them, because I enjoyed it myself! Ruffalo is the main person that I felt like we hit if off and had fun, and I hadn’t worked with him before. I can’t say more than that. He obviously had a turn at the end of the movie where you get to see that there’s a sense of principle, that there’s a culture that he comes from that would have him make the decision that he makes at the end of “Civil War.”You could just see where that comes from now, in this movie, and see him wrestle with those ideas of principle as even more things get thrown at him in terms of that belief system. You’re able to do that easier.In “Infinity War,” does Black Panther play a vital role, and who did you have the most fun working with that you hadn’t worked with before?It’s a vital role — definitely a vital role! I think I felt just like they did: Crazy!What was the best part of this version of T’Challa, to evolve him from how you’ve already played him in “Civil War”? As an actor, what’s the experience been like to work with this many great performers?Honestly, when everybody’s good, you don’t think about it. Those two things don’t have to conflict with each other.This film’s cast is as good as it gets. That was good.” But you honestly just get lost in what you’re doing. And I think [Mark] Ruffalo. So I think it’s more so than all of the fighting and the suit and all that, it was just being able to explore the culture that he comes from.What did you love about the world of Wakanda in the film?I think there’s a sense of the old and the new combined, in a way. In fact, when I met him, it felt like I had already met him. What got you excited about this story?In “Civil War,” he had a one-track mind. Equally jubilant was the all-star cast of the film, who were getting their first look, too, and the actors’ enthusiasm was led by star Chadwick Boseman, who seemed nearly overwhelmed by the glimpse at director Ryan Coogler’s vision.Moviefone caught up with Boseman immediately after the big reveal and, still reeling from what he’d seen, he offered a glimpse at the Black Panther’s role in both his solo film and the forthcoming “Avengers: Infinity War.”Moviefone: This is obviously something that’s been huge and looming in your life for a while. That would be the name I’ll say. You get a sense of appreciation for tradition, and, at the same time, a need to expand, to modernize him, to have most advanced technology or knowledge that there is.



In any case, note how brown that land mass looks.Jump ahead to Season 5 and that land mass is much whiter:And here is the Season 7 premiere credits again, to compare. Also note the absence of any icebergs:In the Season 2 premiere credits, not much has changed. Posted July 25, 2017 by Kelly WooAs Ned Stark warned on the very first episode of “Game of Thrones”: “Winter is coming.” Well, it’s Season 7 and winter is definitely here. It’s definitely here. Notice, though, how much green there is still around the coasts:
But in the Season 3 premiere credits, that green is almost totally gone. But as an eagle-eyed fan on Reddit discovered, winter’s slow, but steady arrival was teased in the opening credits of the show.Redditor RohitMSasi pointed out that the opening credits of the Season 7 premiere showed the seas around the Wall had turned into ice. The sea to the west of the Wall — aptly named the Bay of Ice — looks, well, a lot icier:Collider indicated that land mass to the east of the Wall were icebergs, but it could be that the people who designed the credits belatedly added the island chain of Skagos, which lies in the Bay of Seals to the east of the Wall. And yes, as you can see, the sea to the East of the Wall appears to have frozen over — possibly enough for the army of White Walkers to possibly traverse:But Collider took it further and examined the opening credits of all previous seasons and realized that the credits have been showing winter’s encroach all along.Here are the credits to the pilot episode. Look at how the seas on both sides of the wall are deep blue. See how little blue there is in the seas on either side of the Wall:Ned Stark was right about this, at least — winter was coming.

Read more about the shoot over at THR. We are loving this group photo of the casts of “Black Panther” and “Thor: Ragnarok.”This photo by The Hollywood Reporter was taken 30 minutes before the casts of the two Marvel movies took the stage at Hall H on Saturday at Comic-Con.It was the first time many of the actors had met, including Tom Hiddleston (back as Loki in “Thor: Ragnarok”), who told “Get Out” star Daniel Kaluuya, “I’m a big fan.”It was hard getting them all to stop hugging and shaking hands, THR reports. Letitia Wright, who plays Shuri in “Black Panther” shook hands with Hiddleston, saying, “Nice meeting you, Tom. Now get your butts on the stage!” Yes, ma’am!Danai Gurira summed up the shoot after giving co-star Lupita Nyong’o a hug: “This is a real family moment.”

In the end nothing could break the chain.And in our exclusive look at one of the special features for the upcoming home video release of “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. It’s pretty awesome.You’ll find this (and more) when “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2,” you can see why Gunn picked the song and how it fit into the movie’s larger thematic and narrative concerns. You’d walk through the double doors like you’d be going to a trade show for, I don’t know, auto parts, and wind up literally in another galaxy. On giant speakers, all around the soundstage, a song boomed: Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain.” You could feel how important the song was on that day and could only imagine its impact in the final movie.Well, “The Chain” wound up being an unforgettable part of not only the marketing for the James Gunn film, but also the movie itself, where it’s reprised during a climactic battle. 2″ hits digital and Disney Movies Anywhere on August 8 and Blu-ray and (for the first time ever!) 4K Ultra HD on August 22. 2″ back in spring 2016, they had visit a soundstage that was constructed out of an old convention center in Atlanta.

Movie stars are day-playing on this film. It’s hard making these films, physically hard. It’s kind of unprecedented. Posted July 25, 2017 by Scott HuverThe roof of Comic-Con International’s Hall H nearly exploded from the unbridled excitement generated by a second unveiling the still-not-public sneak peek footage from “Avengers: Infinity War” that took D23 by storm.So, no pressure, Joe Russo.Immediately after the presentation, Russo — who, with his brother Anthony, are the filmmakers at the helm of the forthcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe mega-crossover that unites the superhero community in a battle against Thanos’s bid to conquer the cosmos — told Moviefone he was feeling energized by the wildly positive response to the footage, especially given that he and Anthony are just about to start work on the follow-up installment.And he offered a hint at who he suspects will be the breakout superhero comedy duo of “Infinity War.”Moviefone: The response that you’ve gotten here and at D23, what has it meant to you to see the enthusiasm the “Infinity War” footage has provoked?Joe Russo: It’s incredible, because oddly, it happened to have fallen, both D23 and Comic-Con, in between the two movies that we’re working on. What were the specific challenges of that for you?It’s trying to pull all the different threads together, all the characters so that you have continuity in narrative, that there’s a flow, that you are paying off everything that’s been set up. So we have an incredible amount of support.The hardest part is tying all the different threads together. It’s emotionally demanding, it’s psychologically demanding. Marvel does an incredible job of casting. To see that reaction, right before we’re about to start the second movie, is a great burst of energy to carry us to the next film.You’ve gotten the opportunity to work with just about everybody in the MCU so far. I joke that the cast is like “The Poseidon Adventure” meets “Towering Inferno.” It’s that big. What was the thrill of experiencing the new people that you got to work with? I think it’s going to surprise people. People saw it today, what Taika [Waititi] did with the tone on “Ragnarok,” bringing that tone and energy from the “Thor” world into the “Guardians” universe, and you get a really combustable chemistry and some pretty funny stuff. Did anybody stand out as, like, that was way better than I expected?Everybody brings incredible energy. We’ve worked with the same crew now on four movies, so it’s like a family. I like the dynamic between Thor and Star-Lord. I can’t think of a movie that has this many stories that are leading into it. Everyone who comes in is a movie star. We have great partners in Marvel. They’ll come in and do one day’s worth of work.So you’re just constantly surprised every day by the quality of talent you have in front of you. So, it’s been a hell of a task.Thankfully, we have incredible partners in [screenwriters Christopher] Markus and [Stephen] McFeely, who wrote “Winter Soldier” and “Civil War,” and are writing both “Avengers” scripts for us. It’s very funny. It literally took us a year in a room in front of a computer screen trying to figure it out.Are there any two characters you can tease that were especially fun to see together for the first time?Oh boy! I’ll just pick up the call sheet and laugh, because I go, “Oh my God, this person’s coming in for one or two days, and they’re one of my favorite actors.”These huge Marvel movies are challenging to make in any circumstance, but this is that big culmination movie, the epic that everything’s been building toward.



“Girls Trip” currently has an 88 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes’ “Tomatometer” and a 90 percent audience score.We’ll see what kind of momentum the film has, but for now, the movie’s opening has already made a strong showing, surpassing its production budget of $19 million. Posted July 24, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongMoviegoers wanted to get rowdy this weekend — just look the success of “Girls Trip.”The funny flick exceeded box office expectations this weekend and ultimately had the best opening for an R-rated comedy since 2015. The movie, which centers on long-time friends who head to New Orleans for a crazy weekend, has been getting solid reviews from critics and audiences alike. With Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish as stars, “Girls Trip” bowed to more than $30.4 million, according to THR. It topped Amy Schumer’s “Trainwreck ($30.1 million) and came close to Mark Wahlberg’s “Ted 2” ($33.5 million), both of which opened in 2015.Notably, “Girls Trip” is another example for studios that yes, people will go see female-driven films as well as movies with diverse casts, especially if they are done well. Universal Pictures certainly can’t complain about that.If you’re ready for raunchy, R-rated fun, “Girls Trip” is in theaters now.[via: THR]



The hit Netflix series is switching things up for its sophomore season, and David Harbour, who plays Police Chief Jim Hopper, told THR that the first five minutes will feel very unfamiliar.”The first five minutes, you’re not going to know you’re watching ‘Stranger Things,'” he said. Unfortunately, his intel is equally cryptic, making us all the more curious. According to the actor, whatever happens will show viewers that they have “opened up the world in a fresh new way.” As part of that, they’ll reveal “new concepts.”Harbour’s hints seem to go along with clues that have been previously dropped, such as a terrible thing happening early on and the threat of dark forces even worse than the Demogorgon. Posted July 24, 2017 by Stephanie Topacio LongThe premiere of “Stranger Things” Season 2 isn’t going to feel like coming home.Returning to Hawkins, Indiana, this October may actually bring some confusion. “You’re going to be checking the thing: ‘Did I put on something else?'”Harbour didn’t offer any details on why that will be, but he did tease an interesting development that will occur toward the end of the five-minute period.
