Another Rebirth For The Man Of Steel..

The DC Animated Universe has set the bench mark with every release and they are ready for another beginning. As “Justice League Dark: Apokolips War” finishes the timeline that began with the 2013 “Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox”, Warner Bros. and DC are ready to hit the reset button. It’s time to check out the Man of Steel’s origins… again.

“Superman: Man Of Tomorrow” brings a new slant to one of the great comic book orgin of all-time, but before we dive into the trailer, I feel the need to point out the #MeToo elephant in the room. This story might look a little familiar to the trained eye, as this film is rumored to be loosely based on the comic “Superman:American Alien” and that book was written by a scumbag that I will not waste my breath to name, but through a little research and multiple source checks, that name in question is not linked to this project.

Now, with that out of the way, we return to the positive at hand and take a look at this preview of Kal-El’s younger years. In this film, as the official synopsis puts it…

Daily Planet intern Clark Kent takes learning-on-the-job to new extremes when Lobo and Parasite set their sights on Metropolis.

As the trailer and synopsis shows, we are heading from the farm and Metropolis with Clark Kent (voiced by Darren Criss). He is young and he is learning some new powers, but things are different this time around as Lobo makes a grand entrance into the Superman theatrical mythos.

The Cosmic Bounty Hunter (voiced by The Walking Dead’s Beta, Ryan Hurst) is ready to put Superman to the test and he is not alone, as Parasite is added into the mix. Before you wonder if Superman will be standing alone, he will not and he will get an assist from the legendary Martian Man Hunter.

“Superman: Man of Tomorrow” was written by Tim Sheridan, who co-wrote “Reign of the Supermen”, and directed by Chris Palmer. This production has gathered some big names to bring this world to life and takes the viewers on a familiar journey. This story has been told a few times, but this trailer peaks some interest on the return trip.

Superman: Man of Tomorrow Will Be Released August 2020

You read that correctly and it’s a movie that you will not expect. The streaming service HBO Max has released the trailer for “An American Pickle”, this film will be their first original film since the service’s May 2020 launch.

“An American Pickle” stars Seth Rogen in dual roles as Herschel Greenbaum and Ben Greenbaum. Herschel is an American immigrant in the 1920’s, he tries to live the American dream and gets a job inside a factory. After a twist of fate and a fall into a vat of pickles, he is brined and awakens 100 years later. Now, in this new world, he meets his great-grandson Ben and they attempt to connect on levels that could never be imagined in a great twist to the time travel genre.

This film was written by Simon Rich, who adapted the script from his own 2013 short story “Sell Out” and was directed by Brandon Trost, who has directed multiple shorts and “The FP” with his brother Jason.

Originally, “An American Pickle” was set to be distributed by SONY Pictures and receive a theatrical release, but in the pandemic world, things changed and HBO Max gain the film for the streaming viewers at home.

“An American Pickle” will be released on August 6th

Beavis And Butt-Head Do Comedy Central..

In a world that is still in the grips of a toilet paper shortage, there is only one hero to call upon. The great and powerful Cornholio!

Beavis and Butt-Head will return to the small screen, after a short lived return in 2011 and take part in revamped animation line-up for Comedy Central. The cable network is checking all of the correct boxes with this project by having Mike Judge returning to helm his creation.

“Beavis and Butt-Head were a defining voice of a generation, and we can’t wait to watch as they navigate the treacherous waters of a world light-years from their own,” Chris McCarthy of Comedy Central told Deadline.com.

The comedy cable network is showing great faith in an established franchise, but how will these Gen-Xers stand toe-to-toe in the pop culture landscape of today. As this news is still developing, there is no set production or release date scheduled and it will be interesting to see what else Comedy Central will have in store for their animation line-up.

Welcome to the next installment of Nowhere California’s unique take on a pop culture show and tell known as “Show Us Your Junk” Last month, Nicholas Dye exposed his sloth to the internet and we didn’t get shut down, so it’s time for the next volume. Now, it’s my turn to show the world what I got…

As you can tell from this item and the person it honors, I knew that this piece was going to be my first submission into this new series. Like everyone at Nowhere California, I am very excited to see where “Show Us Your Junk” will take us and I’m a little fearful of the possible nudity, as a reminder all nudes should go to Nick.

Anyways, all kidding aside, please show us your pop culture collections and items that you deem worthy. Send your submissions to nowhere_california@yahoo.com or www.facebook.com/nowherecalifornia or just message us right here. No matter what, we want you to Show Us Your Junk!

Tomorrow Is Just A Day Away…

What if you lived the same day on a never ending loop? Would you make the most of your time or go on a rampage? In the past, the cinematic world answered this question with the classic “Groundhog Day” and most recently with the horror series “Happy Death Day”. Now, Hulu and NEON Productions will bring a new answer to the small screen (and selected larger screens, depending on the state of the world) with “Palm Springs”.

“Palm Springs” is a darkly edged romantic comedy that follows Sarah (played by Cristin Milioti) to Palm Springs for a wedding. As Sarah tries to make it through the wedding, she crosses paths with Nyles (played by Andy Samberg) who seems to live a carefree existence and they connect at the event, but her world quickly gets stuck on repeat and Nyles becomes her seasoned guide in this insane world.

This film was directed by Max Barbakow, who developed the story with screen writer Andy Siara and “Palm Springs” premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews. Also, Hulu and NEON bought this film for a festival record breaking $17.5 million, which will lead to a July 10th streaming premiere on Hulu services.

DIGITAL UNDERGROUND #2: Life Insurance Lottery

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

What would you put on the line to enlarge your bank account? Would you risk your life for a slice of paradise? These are the questions posed to Bob in the new film “Life Insurance Lottery” and this film is the second entry into the Nowhere California Digital Underground.

“Life Insurance Lottery” is the new movie from Chuck Norfolk, Chuck is the creative mind behind the Nowhere favorite “Getting Schooled..” and he continues to elevate his cinematic eye in this unique thriller. This film takes you on a journey down easy street with Bob and his entry into an ultra secret club that promises a quick pay day, but Bob’s world is turned upside down as the body count begins to rise quicker then his bank account.

This film has assembled an excellent cast from the main characters to the background players, each performer helps you to believe this world and you can only hope for their success or failures, depending on their true motivation in this script. It’s hard to give the proper credit to every actor in this movie, because viewing this film will give the proper meaning behind that statement and I would highly recommend viewing this movie, but there are two performances that deserve acknowledgement on this page.
The first performance comes from Brad Potts. Brad plays Detective Gallagher, who crosses paths with the club and Bob throughout the movie. He is a grizzled investigator, who seems to have been on this case for a long time and is the greatest definition of a functioning alcoholic in film.

The second performance comes from Joe Grisaffi, who plays Bob’s best friend James and enters the secret club in the same hopes of cashing in. In the start of the movie, James isn’t sure what to take of this offer and quickly dives in. Joe’s performance can be described as multiple layers, from comedic to dramatic and deserves to be noticed.

As I said above, every performance from the cast and crew deserves to be acknowledged. There is a lot of passion that can be clearly seen on this production, this film deserves to be seen on multiple screens and Vimeo On Demand is the place to go.

In the debut of Nowhere California’s Digital Underground, we left the review to you the reader and recommended the title, this will not be different. “Life Insurance Lottery” is a great piece of independent cinema and we encourage everyone to give this movie a chance, so head to Vimeo On Demand or the link at the end of this piece and check out this movie. Also, when you’re finished, leave your thoughts for the filmmakers and let us know your thoughts about “Life Insurance Lottery”

In the current news cycle, some good news is welcome treat and some great nerd news is a dish to savor. As we wait for the next season of the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian”, some casting information has been released and it’s possibly a fantasy casting dream come true. Rosario Dawson will be joining the cast for the new season slated for release this fall (..hopefully)
Dawson has made a career on a path she has controlled and has chosen projects that weren’t about the check, but about the creation of something special. Now, as she enters this galaxy, Rosario is rumored to be playing the role of Ahsoka Tano and this rumor has sparked a lot of excitement in the Star Wars universe.

This news is still developing and the production of “The Mandalorian” seems to not have been stalled by the current state of the world. As new information is released and rumors become fact, we will continue to watch this story.

ENDGAME Doesn’t Mean Game Over..

As 2019 comes to a close and the mourning continues for the ones we lost in Avengers: ENDGAME, one question continued to linger and one of those answers came in the form of the first trailer for MARVEL Studios: Black Widow.

The announcement of Natasha Romanoff’s solo movie excited the MARVEL universe, then ENDGAME left the movie watching public wondering about this movie and which direction we would see this character take. Luckily, the studio didn’t travel the same road as 2005’s Elektra and we are traveling back to the world post Captain America: Civil War.
The trailer drives us quickly into Natasha’s return to the world that built her and her attempts to disappear from the radar, but a life of a Red Room spy isn’t that easy and we see her reconnect with some “family”, one of them being a nostalgic Red Gaurdian (played by “Stranger Things” David Harbour).

Black Widow clearly shows the spy thriller vibe that The Winter Soldier gave us in the early phases of the Infinity Saga, but in a completely different world and it’s the world of a character that deserved a solo adventure.
