 The creative minds behind “Haunted Trailer” and “Getting Schooled”, a personal favorite of Nowhere California, are getting ready to roll film on their next production and they want you to roll the dice with them in the form of an indiegogo project.

 “Life Insurance Lottery” follows a down and out loser, as he wishes for the simple life and joins a club that could be the answer to all of his dreams; but when his friends start to die, he must choose between a growing bank account and stopping a rising body count.

 The writer behind this film is Chuck Norfolk and he originally submitted this script for the third season of the “Project Greenlight” television series, the script was ranked in the top 20% of the competition and, after 16 years on a hard drive, the time has come for “Life Insurance Lottery” to become a big screen reality.

 The first part of that reality is an indiegogo project to achieve a budget this film deserves, you can check out this project by CLICKING HERE On this page, you can check out plans for the production and budget. You can meet the people that will create this film from behind and in front of the camera. Also, a key budget point has been revealed that a secret backer will match funds up to $15,000 and that should be a prime example that even a dollar will go a long way.

 Now, with any crowd funding projects, the perks can be as important as the campaign and the rewards for the “Life Insurance Lottery” project will allow you to leave your own mark on this movie. The details of these perks are worth the viewing and are well worth your money.

 This project is currently live and we will keep you posted on the progress of this production. In Nowhere California’s lifetime, we take great pride in the independent creativity that we have shared with our listeners and this production will continue this path.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic-World-Fallen-Kingdom

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Universal dropped the first trailer to the highly anticipated sequel to the highly received sequel to the crappy sequel to the not-so-bad-compared-to-the-third sequel to the highly praised adaptation of Michael Crichton’s Jurassic Park and let me tell you…it was hotter than Ian Malcolm with his shirt open!

jurassic_world_fallen_kingdom

Set several years after the events in Jurassic World, here’s what we know so far. Owen and Claire still have crazy sexual tension. Owen still makes uncomfortable sexual jokes, now about the list of guys that Claire may or may not have nailed. Claire has helped form a dinosaur protection group called the Prevention of Extinction of Dinosaurs Organization or P.E.D.O. for short (actually it’s called the Dinosaur Protection Group so Claire is really involved with DP…seriously). The hamster balls still work!! Blue thinks Owen smells…funny. Ian “Chaos Theory” Malcolm is a goddamned stallion with salt and pepper hair. The Carnotaur (I was a dino-nerd so yeah…I knew what it was) gets a hickey from good ol’ T-Rex. Isla Nublar has filed to legally change it’s name to Dante’s Peak or whatever the volcano was named in that stupid Tommy Lee Jones movie. Claire and (fellow DP enthusiast *snicker*) Justice Smith pull a Thelma and Louise and the Ankylosaur is the unofficial cannonball champion of the world! That pretty much sums up the freaking awesome first trailer for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom due in theaters June 22nd, 2018. On my ONLY serious note, this trailer does make the departure from most modern trailers and does not oversell. I am truly looking forward to this. Check out the trailer below.

Batman 2018: AKA Shut up Kevin Conroy!

 

Batman-Ninja

(Nicholas Dye/ Staff Writer)

This past week has given us our first look at not one but TWO new Batman animated films that don’t feature the vocal talents of Kevin Conroy! Somewhere, Two-Face’s nipples just got hard! Drawing from all-new material and set in feudal Japan is Batman Ninja. Now I know that sounds like a shitty ploy to get you to buy your kids new toys of Batman as a ninja and Joker, as a ninja, and Harley Quinn as…wait for it…a ninja, but it isn’t. This is a very beautifully detailed anime of Batman as he faces off against the craziest Joker we may have seen since someone thought Jared Leto would be an awesome Joker. Either way it looks 100% badass. The trailer gives us a glimpse at Robin, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Two-Face, Poison Ivy, Clayface, and Grodd. Yup…you heard me…mother-effing Gorilla Grodd as, what appears to be, a warlord! An english dubbed version is coming with a voice cast that is yet to be revealed but, I for one, cannot wait to miss most of the movie reading subtitles just to hear Wataru Takagi do the creepiest scream as the Joker when he attacks batman with a katana in hand. After this trailer, I dare you not to say shinseina tawagoto Batoman!

I mean…COME ON!! My only question is, how the hell does Batman have a Batwing and a few other tech gadgets in feudal Japan? Ah who cares!?

As if that wasn’t enough. DC Animation finally brings us an adaptation of one of my favorite Batman Elseworlds titles in Batman: Gotham by Gaslight. Set in Gotham in 1889, Bruce Wayne returns from a trip to Europe and takes up the mantle of the Batman to stop the legendary Jack the Ripper who has come to Gotham. While the translation to animation doesn’t quite convey the gritty style of the comic (originally drawn masterfully by Hellboy’s Mike Mignola), it does look like it follows the story arc beautifully. Finally there will be a viable reason for those damned steam-punk cosplayers to be at SDCC with their damned Dr. Floobert’s Amazing Gizmotron-Doohickity-Pew-Pew Ray Gun or whatever the hell they call it. Either way, check out the trailer below and, look for Gotham by Gaslight on January 23rd 2018 with Batman Ninja later in 2018.

 

Your Cat Videos Are In Danger..

     Now that I have your attention and you can rest assure that we are not a click bait site, we have to talk about something that might be a little boring and it will be the most important thing to keep in your mind in the next few days. The subject is net neutrality and there is a vote coming to possibly destroy the idea of a open/fair internet. This topic has no political lines, it is a line between the haves and the have nots.

     Net Neutrality is the practice that internet service providers (or ISP) must treat all data on the internet the same and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, or website. For instance, under these principles, ISPs are unable to intentionally block, slow down or charge money for specific websites and online content.

     Now, with all of that said, there is an important vote coming Dec.14 and the goal of these ISPs is to have the FCC change all these rules, so they can turn around and start to throttle the idea of a fair internet to cash in wherever they see fit. There is so much more to the story and I would highly recommend everyone to dive past the regular headlines.

    After you do more research and learn about the pitfalls of the possible rulings, you need to have your voice heard and let the powers that be know that you stand against these plans. You want a fair and open internet.

     There are a lot of ways to have your voice heard. You can call 1-202-418-1000 and leave a voicemail for the Chairman of the FCC. It’s as simple as leaving your name, city and state, and let this man know that you oppose the repeal of Net Neutrality. Also, you can CLICK HERE  And Tell The FCC Where You Stand.

More Stranger Things To Come..

stranger2bthings

(Douglas Porter-Staff Writer)

    They say there are two things inevitable in life, Death and Taxes. Now obviously this phrase is old and dated, as there are many more inevitable things in our day to day non-colonial lifestyles. Something that was obviously inevitable but somehow still need the fanfare to go with it was just announced today by the powers that be at streaming service company Netflix. Stranger Things has been renewed for a 3rd season.

stranger-things-netflix-dungeons-dragons

     Stranger Things has become a transcending show on Netflix. Appealing to the different masses on a level we haven’t seen in pop culture since Game of Thrones and Walking Dead. While no official numbers have ever been released (why they hide these things I don’t know) it was estimated that over 15 million viewers tuned in to the season 2 premiere within its first three days of release on October 27th. Boosting a score of 94% on rotten tomatoes it seems most everybody has agreed that Stranger Things is doing something right. “The Duffer Brothers have again managed to wield their particular alchemy and create a follow-up worthy of the hype created by its predecessor.” Allison Keene of Collider.com said of season 2.

        Minor spoiler warning ahead: Season 2 ends on a minorish cliff-hanger and with no season 3 announcement made prior to its release fans were left up in arms. Netflix has made it a habit of only renewing shows on a season by season basis, with some exceptions Vis-à-vis House of Cards. Using this model has fans salivating at any news that may come from the officials and it is one of the most asked questions of both production staff and the actors. Now I want to put something out on front street with this announcement: Yes we will be getting a season 3….eventually. Yep, no release date was attached to this press release.

   In an interview with indiewire.com, before the announcement of season 3, the Duffer Brother have stated “Season 3 is still so early in it’s stages of development that it hasn’t even gotten the official greenlight. It’s really just Matt and me working with some writers and figuring out where it’s going to go,” said Ross Duffer. So while we know a season 3 will happen it looks like everyone involved s finding the best way to bring us that story.

If you haven’t checked out Stranger Things yet, both seasons 1 and 2 are available for streaming anytime through Netflix. For those of you who are not on the streaming train, a season 1 box set has been released and can found at all major retailers.

 

 

Avengers: Infinity War Trailer

3320083-marvel+studios'+avengers++infinity+war+official+trailer.00_02_00_25.still050

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

Did the above picture make you pee your pants? No? Then watch trailer below and grab some towels! See, I wanted to come up with one of my clever titles but I was too blown away by the sheer awesomeness to come up with one. The slow burn that began back in 2008 with Iron Man is finally coming to it’s conclusion in 2018 with Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. The Mad Titan Thanos (Josh Brolin) has finally made his move to claim the legendary Infinity Stones so that he may reshape the universe to his liking. Standing in his way is the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Nova Corps, and several other heroes…67 according to co-director Joe Russo.

In the trailer, we get to see, Bruce Banner, who apparently fell through the entire Sanctum Sanctorum, standing with Dr. Strange and Tony Stark, Black Widow with blond hair, Winter Soldier with Black Panther, the Hulkbuster Armor, Captain America as Nomad, humany Vision and Scarlet Witch, Peter Parker all tingly, Thor the pirate, Loki the bitch,…um…The Guardians of the Galaxy, uh…War Machine…Falcon…Chuck Norris…Jimmy Hoffa…D.B. Sweeney (look him up)…okay MAYBE all of those don’t appear but it damn sure feels like it. There’s really not much more I can say that does this trailer justice so I will leave you with this final rant:

MAY 4TH MARVEL!!? Your boss owns Star Wars and you guys HAD to go and pick World Star Wars Day to drop your damn amazing movie!? Took some balls Russo Brothers…big ass balls…Anywho…here you go. Remember…towel.

Are You Ready For Some Static Cling?

 

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con for 2017 has entered the books and the time has come for Nowhere California to share our adventures at this most excellent event. In the next few weeks, we will be unleashing our favorite moments and conversations for the world to enjoy. In the first installment, the guys from Nowhere have one hoot of a conversation and talk with Carlos Alazraqui.

p0fu1k5CLICK HERE For Nowhere California Presents Our Conversation With Carlos Alazraqui (5:52)

     Carlos is the multi talented performer from in front of the camera and behind the microphone. The list of characters he has created and voiced can stretch for a decent length, but for one member of the Nowhere California team (namely me) the top of the list will always be held by a certain wallaby named Rocko. Luckily, that wallaby will be returning to thee small screen and to the advanced modern world in 2018 with a new “Rocko’s Modern Life” movie entitled “Static Cling.”

    The entire Nowhere California team would like to send our thanks to Carlos for taking the time to talk to us at the convention. It was a great pleasure and we hope everyone has enjoyed this edition of our LA Comic Con coverage.

Deadpool-2-Teaser-Trailer-2-First-Footage

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

With the holidays fast approaching, the recent release of Thor: Ragnarok, the upcoming release of Justice League and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Deadpool arrived and gave us a release…straight into our pants! Everyone’s favorite Merc’ With A Mouth dropped a teaser trailer a-la-Bob Ross to remind us that none of that other shit matters because Deadpool is coming…to theaters…not…oh never mind.

Twentieth Century Fox posted their official synopsis for the highly anticipated sequel and they describe Deadpool 2 as this:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

No seriously…that IS the official synopsis on Deadpool 2’s IMDB page…

We know this much from the trailer…Deadpool is back, he has a sexy slow motion run through the rain, Negasonic Teenage…Whatever The Fuck The Rest Of Her Name Is is back and still giving the bird, Dopinder doesn’t swallow, Chunk from The Goonies is pulling a Drew Barrymore in Firestarter, some irresponsible prick has given a blind woman a gun, Deadpool does a spot on Jesus impression and rises from the grave, and at very end, Michael Jackson has a new shiny glove…or maybe I need to adjust my Cable. Well, I’m gonna go do some blow, you scroll down to watch the trailer and take the “Don’t Nut in Your Pants Challenge.”

 

Dalton is listed as Security in the credits…these guys are killing me.

 Beware the stars, there is an invasion looming and we have Nickelodeon to blame for this. The nostalgia trend continues to pick up steam at the kid’s cable network and they have announced that “Invader Zim” will be returning in a special television movie.

“As a network that prides itself on a 25-year history of creating groundbreaking, hilarious animation for kids, Invader Zim is one of our great loves. It’s been so exciting to see its popularity grow over the last decade through social media, consumer products, and the Zim comic books,” comments Nick’s senior VP, Content Development and Production, Animation, Chris Viscardi (via VARIETY)

The “Invader Zim” movie has jumped into the current mix of Nickelodeon’s blasts from the pasts, as several other classic NICKtoons are preparing for the television movie treatment.

The details of this production are still developing, but here are a few piece of information that is known. The creator of “Invader Zim”, Jhonen Vasquez, will be returning to lead this new era of Zim. Also, the original voice cast will be returning to give the proper touch to this event.

As details develop, we will pass that information on to you through this site and the Nowhere California Podcast, but for now there is no set air date.
