Suicide Squad – Extended Cut to be Released

Zack Snyder’s Suicide Squad, the stumbling hulk of a successful anti-hero film starring Margot Robbie, Will Smith, and Jared Leto (sort of) has just released a short trailer announcing an extended cut with 13 minutes of additional footage to further flesh out the story that was hacked apart after tumultuous test-screenings harbored an apparent need for a levity injection. 

Will we see the initially intended darker side of the Squad, and perhaps more exciting, more of Jared Leto’s merciless gangster-flavored Joker?

Only time will tell. Needless to say we’re excited to see what the extended cut will bring when it finally arrives. 

You can pick up Suicide Squad Extended Cut DVD /  HD DVD  on November 15, 2016 and the Blu-ray on December 13, 2016

Watch the trailer below and stick with Nerd Hall for all your Suicide Squad news as we get it!

Very Sorry to Have to Announce

Lemony Snicket’s ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ has finally gotten a release date.

Read no further if you’re in a happy mood, dear Nerd Hall fans, as there is nothing good to come from reading this article. 

The Netflix adaptation of the fiercly popular young adult book series has finally announced, in a trailer, which here means, a short video introduction to the content and concept of a film or television show, earlier today.

We can expect to begin suffering the sorrowful tale of the Baudelaire Orphans come this January, the 13th 2017. Be wary to stay far from the internet, or even a WiFi connection on that day, you may accidentally access these Vile Filmed Documentations. 

Starring the likes of Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld, The Tick), Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser M.D., How I Met Your Mother), Louis Hines, and Malina Weissman to name a few, it is sure to bring a tear to your eye and then a steadier stream of tears, even now knowing what’s coming next in this article I am crying, it is almost too hard too see to keep typing.

You can, if you have the will, view the trailer below where we get to see Mr. Warburton deliver some grave news as a very good representation of Mr. Snicket. Where ever he may actually be, I am sure he is displeased. 

Press play, grab a tissue and continue to wait in silent apprehension for the coming of January 13th, 2017. If you do choose to keep the Very Feared Date down on your calendar as one to return to Netflix, I can do nothing else but warn you, you will be off to a very sad start of a not so great year. 

I tried. 

Stick to Nerd Hall for more depressing, and some less depressing news as it comes to us, in fits and starts, in ebbs and flows and bit by bit down the pop culture pipes, now rusted and in need of repair. Keep an eye on your sugar bowl.

Have a Very Find Day, if you can manage.

The French Fries Have A Plan: Go Blonde

Kanye West, enigma of a man, Hip-Hop Monolith for some, future President? has always been on the outlandish side of life, to the benefit of art and music, depending on how you feel about him as a whole. Finally though, he may be speaking sanely for the first time in a long time.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, Mr. West not only praised Frank Ocean’s long-awaited follow up to channel orange, Blonde, but went so far as to say the following:

“If anyone at radio really loves music … Come together and pick your favorite Frank Ocean song and play it at least 10 times a day,” West tweeted his plea plainly. “Every station across the globe. I Heart. Clear Channel local stations. Satellite. Every station. This will make the world better.”

Whether or not this works to the benefit of Blonde is yet to be seen, but one thing is absolutely crucial in these dark strange times: LISTEN TO FRANK OCEAN.

Comedy Bang! Bang! Bye…Bye?

What’s up, hot dog?

Yesterday came with the news that the IFC @ifc network has chosen not move forward beyond the soon to be finished fifth and final season of beloved self-proclaimed TV’s first talk show, Comedy Bang! Bang!

Helmed by alt-comedy titan Scott Aukerman @scottaukerman, spinning off his podcast of the same title, created a wild world full of off-beat tangents, obtuse turns of comedy tropes, a touch at the bubbling rage just under the surface of each of us as well as truck load after truck load of false names and sly references to things long forgotten. First teamed with the menace to music that is Reggie Watts then transitioned to a stint with rapper of note Kid Cudi and, as if by the fates themselves, joined by none other than Weird Al Yankovic for the final 20 episode long fifth season.

I don’t even know where to begin to talk about this show from a personal perspective. Ardent fan and champion of whatever this mess was supposed to be, I find myself at a loss for words. Did Comedy Bang! Bang! make an effort to push boundaries of what we consider when we think of comedy as an art form? Well, yeah stupid, of course it did. Was it always on the mark? Of course not, nothing is perfect, but in that imperfection lay some of the most groundbreaking attempts at generating comedy from a place of truth with a twist of whimsy. A veritable Pee-wee’s Playhouse style talk-sketch show that never let up and refused to fall into one clean category. 

All we can say is thank you and cherish what there is left to come, and maybe suck it up, as we’ve already seen the series finale two seasons ago. 

Comedy Bang! Bang! the TV show will be sorely missed. My man cave will feel a little more like a man’s grave with it gone. 

Luckily, we still have the podcast version some 400+ episodes deep and still evolving. 

Thank you @scottaukerman for five amazing seasons, a monolith of a podcast and whatever you have coming next. Can we get a Heynong Man? 

R2D2soon.

Going Sane in a World Gone Crazy

The Tick is back, finally. After a stint as a mascot, spanning comics, different television iterations, both live action and animated, we have a new take on a perhaps forgotten favorite hero. Amazon Prime has graciously given us a taste of what could become a brilliant new addition to the current trend of superhero-centric television. Peter Serafinowicz (Shaun of the Dead, Star Wars: Episode 1) is The Tick made flesh and rubber. Peppering his performance with touches of Adam West as well as his own brand of slick delivery of dry wit and obtuse similes. Found through the eyes of Arthur Everest,  as played by Griffin Newman (Vinyl, Cop Show), we join our new Tick as he scopes out shady dealings and the possible return of an old nemesis. 

This pilot really captures the feeling of what makes The Tick a stellar choice for a revival. 

Have you seen Amazon’s The Tick? Let us know if you’re as excited as we are to see more of this version? Do you also feel warm like the inside of bread? Get into bread with us.

More importantly, if you have seen it, please take the survey found at amazon.com/pilotseason to let them know you want more Tick in your life. We certainly do.
