Video Clip: Jeremy Renner on “The Avengers” and Hawkeye’s Future

Larry King recently sat down with two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner for an episode of the Emmy Nominated series “Larry King Now”. The two chatted at the Beverly Hilton for the “Kill the Messenger” press junket where the actor spilled some secrets about the upcoming “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”

In recent reports, the Avengers star has hinted at the possibility of an appearance in “Captain America 3” but during his interview with Larry King, Jeremy Renner confirmed that Hawkeye will NOT be disappearing anytime soon. “No man, I don’t die. They are going to keep me around for a while,” Renner explained.

He also said one of the biggest benefits of being apart of “The Avengers” is having 5 year olds recognize him and run up to him for autographs. “That is the coolest thing ever. The innocence of a child running up to you with like a little bow and arrow and wanting you to sign it or with a captain’s shield, it’s a lovely thing.”

The actor discussed his interest in bringing Gary Webb’s story to the big screen in “Kill The Messenger,” “The main reason why I wanted to do it was because Gary Webb was flawed and he’s our hero, if you will, of the picture. And I love heroes with flaws.” Jeremy wrapped up his interview by answering social media questions from some of his biggest fans including any secrets he could spill about the new “Bourne Betrayal” movie, what his hardest roles have been, his dream role, and dishing on his experience producing “Kill the Messenger.”

iPhone App Spotlight: The Tribez & Castlez

I don’t do a lot of game reviews, as I don’t play a lot of games – mostly just the occasional one on my iPhone. The Tribez was one, so when The Tribez & Castlez released, I decided to check it out. It’s a free game with in-game purchases available to speed up gameplay. It’s highly addicting, but not one that I have to continually play. I can leave it for a few hours (or days) and come back without losing anything. As with most city building games, when you first start out, there’s a lot to do and you level up quickly. After a day or two of play, it slows down to 30 minutes or more between play. Great for the casual gamer.

The Details:
Game Insight, a global leader in mobile/social games, is pleased to announce that the next chapter in city building games, The Tribez & Castlez, is now available for download for iOS and Android devices from the Apple App Store and Google Play. The Tribez & Castlez is a spin-off of the worldwide smash hit The Tribez, which has garnered more than 14 million players worldwide.

Tribez & Castlez is a time-travelling adventure Continue reading iPhone App Spotlight: The Tribez & Castlez

Movie Review: The History of Future Folk

The History of Future Folk

A musical/SciFi/comedy/romance – this recent independent film has it all. Starring Nils d’Aulaire and Jay Klaitz, the duo are aliens who form bluegrass music – with a cult following. The songs are clever and funny. And the story is compelling and charming.

Fans of Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog will enjoy this comical romp. My favorite scene is a montage of a humorous tango with the suddenly suave Jay Klaitz while our hero Nils d’Aulaire fights a fearsome alien bounty hunter. And the scenes when the aliens hear music for the first time are priceless. The History of Future Folk is a sweet and lighthearted film that I highly recommend.

The History of Future Folk is available now on iTunes.

Official Synopsis:
THE HISTORY OF FUTURE FOLK tells the hilarious (and possibly exaggerated) origin story of the real life alien bluegrass band, Future Folk, that has been charming NYC audiences with their live act for the better part of a decade. When a comet threatens to destroy their planet, the citizens of Hondo enlist their most decorated soldier, General Trius (Nils d’Aulaire), to search for a new home planet- and wipe out the current inhabitants with a flesh-eating virus. After landing somewhere near Brooklyn, General Trius wanders into a megastore to unleash the terror… when he’s suddenly enchanted by a strange and mystical human invention known as “music.” They don’t have music on Hondo, and since it’s the best thing he’s ever heard, General Trius immediately abandons his mission to eradicate the human race, assumes the name Bill, starts a family, and launches a one-alien bluegrass act in a tiny bar owned by Larry (Dee Snider).

Years later, his peaceful life is disrupted when the Hondonians send a bumbling assassin named Kevin (Jay Klaitz) to get the mission back on track. Although subduing Kevin is no challenge for the great General Trius, the Hondonians have no intention of calling off their plan to eliminate mankind, so Bill and Kevin must join forces to save Hondo, prevent an intergalactic takeover of Earth, and hopefully get some bigger gigs for the universe’s first Hondonian bluegrass duo: Future Folk!
