James Bond Returns in First Full Trailer for SPECTRE

"James Bond Will Return."

That sentence at the end of every James Bond film is always a welcome sight.

Now, James Bond is back in SPECTRE, opening November 6, 2015. Daniel Craig once again slides into 007's tailored suits and drives the newest Aston Martin, the DB10.

Familiar faces returning include Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Moneypenny, and Ben Whishaw as Q. They join newcomers to the franchise Dave Bautista as Mr Hinx, Monica Belluci as the beautiful Lucia, and the always incredible Christoph Waltz as Franz Oberhauser, the villain of the piece (rumored to be Blofeld - we'll have to wait and see). Sam Mendes who directed the previous Bond film, Skyfall, returns to call the shots.

Here's the first full trailer.

Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad - Trailers For Both Movies Show Promise

Another San Diego Comic Con has entered the history books.

DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. got my attention with trailers for their two big movies for 2016.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (out March 25, 2016). Not a Man of Steel sequel, but more a preamble to the announced Justice League movies. Henry Cavill proved he has the chops for Superman in Man of Steel and Ben Affleck appears to be diving deep in his role as Batman. I just hope the filmmakers due justice (no pun intended) to this historic first-time onscreen pairing of the most well-known superheroes of all time.

Suicide Squad (out August 5, 2016) with Jared Leto stepping into the killer's smile and cackling laugh of the Joker. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn looks like she might be the breakout star of this tale. And what a great cover of the Bee Gees' "I Started A Joke" to use in the trailer.

Man-Thing and Monster Energy Drinks - What they have in common

It used to be that when you wanted a quick buzz in the morning or a pick me up to get you through the end of your work day, you'd hit up the old coffee pot for that caffeine buzz.

Nowadays, energy drinks are - to borrow a phrase from Bounty paper towels - the "quicker-picker-upper."

Monster Energy Drinks seem to be a big deal out there, but ever notice something funny about the stylized "M"?  I think it looks just like the face of Marvel's Man-Thing swamp bog monster (tagline, "Whatever knows fear, burns at the Man-Thing's touch!").

Judge for yourself below.

 "Whatever knows thirst, quenches at the Monster's sips!"
