 The Justice League have assembled.. sorry they have united in the newest trailer for the upcoming blockbuster for the DC cinematic universe. Since last year’s San Diego Comic Con, we have been treated to full blown trailers and other clips, but this is our chance to see this team in full tilt boogie level action.

This preview does the job of every good trailer and makes you want more, but with the speed bumps that the DC Universe has seen, the doubts are in the water and I will not add to it. This trailer is an excellent piece that gives you the right taste of everyone and reveals more of the Justice League team that you might have been wondering about. I know that I am not alone with the thought of Aquaman stealing this movie and owning every scene he is in.

 As the DC promotion train picks up stream, the hopes for Justice League can only grow and November can’t get here quick enough. There is the possible question out there of DC ability to finally reach MARVEL’s cinematic levels in the theaters, but those question should finally be ignored and DC can focus on their own film legacy.

Just in case you need the reminder, JUSTICE LEAGUE will be in theaters November 17th

Taking The Pitch Elevator To The Top..

In recent years the Hollywood system seems to have grown complacent to the fans that help build their bank accounts and credibility. Every year for every popular movie, there are multiple movies that should have seen a lot more red light and lesser green ones. The fan’s apathy could cause the next lackluster installment of “Fantastic 4” or the fan’s passion could rise up and decide for the original content we deserve. This is where LEGION M comes in and changes the Hollywood machine.

LEGION M is the first fan owned entertainment company, the fans make the decisions and the fans will reap the rewards. At the recent Los Angeles Comic Convention, the co-founder and president of LEGION M., Jeff Annison was in attendance at the convention to introduce the convention goers to the world of LEGION M and their current project the “Pitch Elevator”

I was lucky enough to sit down with Jeff and delve into the creation of this unique concept…

The foundation of LEGION M is why I love independent creativity and why Nowhere California exists. I consider it an honor that I had an opportunity talk with Jeff and learn about this company. The entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Jeff for taking the time to talk with us and we urge all of our listeners to join the legion.

During Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Convention, the guys from Nowhere crossed paths with a friend of con’s past and caught up with Taz.

The last time the team had crossed paths with Taz was at the 2014 Days of the Dead Convention, during the conventions Saturday morning cartoon screening and a friendship was formed through a alcohol charged commentary.

Since that chance meeting, we have been looking for a chance to cross paths with Taz and that opportunity came at this year’s Los Angeles Comic Con. There wasn’t a cartoon screening to riff our way through, but Taz and I had a great conversation about his return to the states. Also, the conversation delves into Taz’s musical life and his work with the band “As Flesh Decays” (CLICK HERE for As Flesh Decays EP “SINISTER”)

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

The world of entertainment has lost another creative voice, as Robert Loggia has passed away at the age of 85. Loggia had made a career out of playing tough guys and taking on roles that allowed him to have a laugh or two. In his over 6 decade career, Robert had appeared in 229 roles and acted aside some of the biggest names in Hollywood, even a few before they were the headliners they are today.

As with every entertainer, their legacy will be remember with the credits of their career and Loggia’s legacy will never be forgotten in cannon of amazing work. Also, Loggia’s influence on the lives he impacted will allow people to continue to know this great human and creative soul.

The best way to sum up this loss is the words of Loggia’s wife, Aubrey. She released this statement after the news broke, “His poor body gave up, He loved being an actor and he loved his life.”

Chris Rock To Bring The Pain To Oscar Night..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Over the past few years, the most thankless job in Hollywood has been hosting the Academy Awards. There have been many that have tried and left before they could be asked if they would like to return, from Neil Patrick Harris to the much underrated Seth MacFarlane, this is a dream job that brings on a nightmare of a hangover. So the question has been asked and the host of the 88th Academy Awards has been revealed, Chris Rock will be taking the stage.

This will be a return visit for Rock, as he hosted this event back in 2005, and will definitely give the proper shock to the normal Academy Awards viewer and critics system. As Rock has grown into the creatively mind behind the camera and continues to be the top level performer in front of the camera, Rock still has the heart of a stand-up comic and that has been missing from the OSCAR stage.

The 88th Academy Award Nomination will be announced on January 14th 2016
The 88th Academy Awards will air February 28th 2016

The Blacklist Revisited.. A Look From Nowhere At “Trumbo”

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

During the late 1940’s, the fear of communism was sweeping the nation and the label of “communist” was a one way ticket to a destroyed life. At this time, the US government established the House Committee on Un-American Activities and this committee began to summon anyone they suspected of less than American qualities.

There was one community they questioned and, in some eyes, used as an example, that group was the big names of Hollywood. There was no position that was protected and everyone seem to be getting summoned, but there were some professionals that refused to answer these subpoenas. This group were known as “The Hollywood Ten”

These writers, producers, and directors decided to refuse to answer the committee’s question, as they claimed that this form of questioning stepped on their constitutional rights. These actions were not tolerated and contempt charges were leveled, after a House of Representatives vote of 346 to 17.

The members of “The Hollywood Ten” were hit with fines and jail times, but a lingering punishment was attached to them, “The Hollywood Ten” were now blacklisted. While on the black list, these people could not find work in the Hollywood system and their lives were altered forever.

At first, the black list contained only “The Hollywood Ten” and the list continued to grow. The list continued through the 1960’s and contained over 150 names, but it all started with “The Hollywood Ten” and Dalton Trumbo was a member of the group.

Dalton Trumbo was a screenwriter and novelist, he enjoyed some success and built a strong career, but everything changed in October 1947. In that year, Trumbo was placed on the black list and he wasn’t ready to disappear into Hollywood oblivion. Trumbo’s time on the black list and his battle to regain his career is the plot of the new film called “Trumbo”

“Trumbo” is directed by Jay Roach and follows the career of Dalton Trumbo, who is played by Bryan Cranston, as he is black listed and decides to rebel against the system.

When watching the trailer of “Trumbo”, you realize this story revolves around a forgotten era of Hollywood and this era is a period of time that some viewers will not understand. The Hollywood black list is a time where the victims didn’t sit and complain, they just simply wanted to get back to work and “Trumbo” is a film that will get this story out to a generation that could use a reminder to fight for you passion.

The cast and crew that assembled for this project seem to be dedicated and passionate about the subject. Honestly, I can not wait for the release of the movie in November.
