Anton Yelchin was born in 1989 and tragically taken from this world in 2016, but this talented individual’s impact is still being felt to this date. You can quickly look through Anton’s Imdb listings and realize he was wise beyond his year, as his talents are forever linked to some of the biggest names in Hollywood.
Anton was a talent in every aspect of his life and his hobbies beyond acting were known by a random few, until now and that is in thanks to the new documentary “Love,Antosha”

“Love, Antosha” is the new documentary from director Garret Price and this is a rare portrait of a young talent that easily transcended the typical ideals of young Hollywood, by constantly raising his game in front of and behind the camera. This story is presented through movie clips and home movies, these images are punctuated by the people that worked and knew Anton recounting their friendships with a young talent gone way too soon.
This film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to glowing reviews and has been labeled as “heartbreaking” and a reminder of how one person can impact so many lives in an unfortunate short time.

“Love,Antosha” will be entering theaters on August 2.

These Bananas Are Going To Split Some Skulls..

The world of children’s television was an interesting landscape in the late 60s to 70, there was Sesame Street at the top of the mountain and there were the strange, off-beat offerings. The list of off-beat creators can run a mile long, but two individuals were prominent on this list and they were the Krofft Brothers.
Sid and Marty Krofft were the creative minds behind a lot of classic television, from H.R. Pufnstuf to Wonderbug and the memorable group known as The Banana Splits, if you might have forgotten or you are too young to remember, here is the opening to their television series that ran from 1968-1970..

“No drugs involved. You can’t do drug when you’re making a show. Maybe after, but not during. We’re bizarre, that’s all,” Marty Krofft said that in a 2005 USA Today interview and that statement rings true all these years later and one of their creations is getting the hard R rated horror treatment.

If the original wasn’t insane enough, Jeff Elinoff and Scott Thomas poured some blood all over it. Elinoff and Thomas are the writer’s behind this creation, with Danishka Esterhazy in the director’s helm and Blue Ribbon Content is the studio unleashing this film onto the world.
This movie does not have a set release date, but is expect to be released this year. As more is revealed on the “What The Fuck” level production, stay locked into NowhereCalifornia.com for any new information.

A Saga To Be Concluded..

As the saga continues, the first teaser trailer of the episode 9 has been revealed to the world and, with some time passing, the debates are still at a fever pitch and the legion of Star Wars loyalists continue to replay our first taste of “The Rise Of Skywalker.”

The Christmas gift that keeps on giving and a continuing pattern for this leg of the Star Wars universe, this trailer gives our first look into the conclusion of the “Skywalker Saga” and the cinematic aftermath of “The Last Jedi”.

The time frame from episode 8 to 9 hasn’t been set in stone, but in this trailer we get a glimpse of where our favorite characters are at and a quick vision of the legendary Carrie Fisher getting to appear in this finale. JJ Abrams and the Fisher family decide to use unused footage to bring our princess and general to the screen one more time.

The trailer for “Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise Of Skywalker” brings us many moments from both sides of the force, as no one can deny their excitement from seeing Lando back in the pilot’s seat of the Millennium Falcon to the goose bump inducing shock of hearing that all too familiar laugh of the emperor.

There is still a long road ahead for the movie going public and the guys from Nowhere recently gathered to discuss this trailer. Also, they take a look back at this recent trilogy in the unforgettable franchise.

Goodbye Mr. Andrews

luke(Douglas Porter.Staff Writer)

It’s been 10 minutes since I learned about Luke Perry’s death and I have not been able to stop crying. Its weird how celebrities can gain entry into our deepest emotions, that when we lose them its like losing a member of your family. I always knew of Luke’s work from 90210 but having not been the right age for that show it never came into my watching ethos, but I always saw Luke on other things. It was always nice to know that Luke was a genuine person. He didn’t let his teen fame make him someone who was fake and superficial. Luke really entered my thoughts on a show called Riverdale. He played Fred Andrews, father of Archie Andrews, and the BEST DAMN parent on the show.

Watching Luke play Mr. Andrews really spoke to me on not just a son level, but a father level as well. Fred cared for nothing more than Archie’s well-being. He never put himself before Archie, even if that meant letting Archie be a spoiled, rotten, brat. He made me appreciative of my own father. I saw much of both my father and myself in Fred, and I on more than one occasion told myself that he was the father I hoped to be. Surrounded by teen angst, and melodrama, here was a character who was pure, of good moral standing, and a caring individual who took homeless gang members into his home and cared for them when the whole city had turned their back on them.

Many times, we see actors portray different characters, from good to evil, loving to hated, but there was a real part of Luke Perry that had entered the part of Fred Andrews. It is with a saddened heart that I have to say goodbye to you. Goodbye, Mr Andrews, and Rest in Love and Peace, Luke Perry.

The digital media viewing landscape will be changing in July, as the UltraViolet digital movie storage service will be shutting down on July 31,2019.

The UltraViolet service launched in 2011 and allowed their users to store their movie library in cloud, this cloud would allow the user to watch their movie from multiple devices and locations. As this concept was top of the line in 2011, in the streaming world of today, this service has become lost in the pack.

Now, before you curse the movie storage gods, the company behind UltraViolet has released a statement to assure the current users.

“Between January 31 and July 31, 2019, you can continue to access your UltraViolet movies and TV shows through the retailers linked to your UltraViolet Library,” the company said. “If your library is not currently linked to a retailer or if you would like to link to additional participating retailers, select one or more retailers to link to your UltraViolet library”.

Who You Going To Call In 2020?

After 30 years and a controversial reboot, Sony has announced a new Ghostbusters movie set in the original universe scheduled for a summer 2020 release. The news was broken by the trades on January 15th, with an online press release detailing the plans for the new movie. Set to be written and directed by two time academy nominated Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman.

The movie is scheduled to be filmed this summer, however the press release did not mention any casting news so it is not determined at this point if any of the main cast will be returning.
Not wanting to let the flame die down, Sony released a 52 second teaser trailer on the morning of January 16th.

The trailer has fans watering at the mouth for more, especially casting news. While the original cast returned for the 2016 reboot, it has still not been determined whether we will see any of the OG’s in this highly anticipated sequel. One cast member has made his presence known on social media, Dan Aykroyd.
Jason Reitman dropped the following tweet with the trailer:

Dan Aykroyd tweeted back to Jason:

  So we know Dan is ready to jump in, but the major hold out with the cast has always been the elusive Bill Murray. There have been attempts in the past to get a GB3 off the ground, but Bill has always denied coming back which never let sequels get off the ground. But with a Reitman at the helm, and the fans rallying around this news it seems the right time for Bill to make his comeback to ethereal plane.

**For the unaware, the guys from Nowhere have another podcast that delves into the fandom and legacy of the Ghostbusters franchise. The show is called THE ECTO POD and you can find it on all of your favorite podcast search engines. 

 

Spiderman: International Man Of Mystery..

The marvelous MARVEL web slinger is crossing the pond and the year continues to heat up for the lucky movie watching world. MARVEL has unleashed previews for Captain Marvel and teased us with the Avengers’ grand finale, now we are treated to the trailer for Peter Parker’s second solo outing and the debut of Mysterio.

Now that the world had witnessed the new trailers for Spiderman:Far From Home (First being the North American trailer and the second being the international preview) There’s levels upon levels of things to dissect, first being the continuation of Aunt May’s knowledge of Peter’s secret and the awkward, but cute flirtation between May and Happy. There are a lot of subtle things to watch for throughout this trailer, but the action quickly rattles you back into the adventure at hand.

 The European vacation is upended by forces that are great, such as Hydro Man and a possible Sandman. Also, there is a mysterious force that some of the most jaded comic book fans can’t help but cheer for and that comes in the form of Mysterio, played by Jake Gyllenhall. In this trailer, Quentin Beck seems to be showing his heroic side and we can wonder how long that might last.

 Spiderman:Far From Home will be released on July 5th of this year and will the aftermath of End Game still be shaking through the MARVEL Universe, let alone this movie or will Spiderman be returning home to the start of a war?

Joe Has Some Late Fees And Needs Your Help

Joe is a nice guy and tries to do nothing wrong, but a recent discovery will send him on a most excellent adventure. Joe will journey to return a VHS copy of “Above The Law” and late fees be darned, he will accomplish his goal.

You have entered the world of “Joe Returns A Video”, a short film written and starring Joe Grisaffi. You might remember Joe was the director of the movie “Conjoined”, a movie I described in the past as “A cross between an episode of Tales From The Crypt and Three’s Company with a few low doses of acid.” That review is in the most positive light a review can be with the use of acid as an example and “Joe Returns A Video” continues that stream of thought.

I was lucky enough to view a rough cut of this short and would love to give a proper review, but that would spoil the fun of this absurdly hilarious film. Honestly, “Joe Returns A Video” is like an ADULT SWIM cartoon come to life and you still have the opportunity to help finish this film.

The team behind this film is in the final days of an IndieGoGo campaign for the post production process. They have locked in some great perks for your donations and you can have your name attached to a great piece of independent comedy.

A Dark Phoenix Returns..

darkA
(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

In the comic book work, the term is commonly known as retcon and the movie going public, we are treated to the repeated trend of reboots. Now, these world cross paths again and the world will receive another retelling of the Dark Phoenix saga, as the trailer for next year’s “X-Men:Dark Phoenix” has been released.

Now, for anyone new to this world, the first time this story arch hit the big screen was in the 2006 movie “X-Men:The Last Stand” In “The Last Stand” the Dark Phoenix was a part of a larger story that revolved around the possible mutant cure, but some of the more hardcore X-Men followers knew this was a type of story that could hold its own in a full feature film.

After watching the trailer, it is easy to see that this story line stands front and center in all of its glory. This movie continues the evolution of the current X-Men era with a harsher edge, as loyalties are in question and, in true blockbuster movie form, humanity is threatened.

As with recent high profiled releases, this film had its original release date changed and reshoots were ordered by the studio. The question could be asked about if this will be an issue with the public view and I will not fall into that debate. This film will probably close the X-Men book for 20th Century Fox, before these mutants fall into the Disney fold and we can only hope this last stand will be one to remember.

X-Men:Dark Phoenix Will Rise Into Theaters Feb.14,2019
