No Comments

Marvel Studios/ILMxLAB(NEW YORK) — The Void, the company behind stunning virtual reality experiences, is letting fans be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with its latest adventure: Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Damage Control

The full trailer for the experience created by ILMxLAB has just been released online.

Like its predecessor, Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, Damage Control uses a virtual reality helmet and other sensors to drop patrons right in the middle of a fully-immersive, movie-quality adventure.

Instead of the Stormtrooper gear from Secrets of the Empire, Damage Control players will find themselves wearing Iron Man armor retrofitted by Wakandan tech genius Shuri, again played by Black Panther and Avengers movie star Letitia Wright.

The trailer also features the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Holland, Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly; they reprise their respective roles as Doctor Strange, Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Scott Lang/Ant-Man and Hope Van Dyne/The Wasp, all of whom fight alongside you against James Spader’s robotic menace, Ultron.

Also glimpsed in the trailer are Sam Wilson/Falcon, James Rhodes/War Machine, and Hulk, but it’s not apparent yet whether they’re also voiced by their real-life counterparts Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle and Mark Ruffalo.

The Void virtual reality experiences are located throughout the U.S., Canada, and in Malaysia.  Visit TheVoid.com for locations.

Marvel Studios and Star Wars are properties of Disney, the parent company of ABC News.

No Comments

© 2019 CTMG, Inc. All Rights Reserved. (NEW YORK) —  The new trailer for the Charlie’s Angels reboot shows no shortage of stunts, sass, and sisterhood.

The promotional clip for the movie, directed and co-written by Elizabeth Banks, who also co-stars, shows a duo of female spies, played by Ella Balinska and Kristen Stewart showing the ropes to a new recruit, played by Aladdin’s Naomi Scott.

The Angels — dubbed “a covert group of exceptional women” — have gone global, with multiple teams tackling dangerous assignments all over the world. Banks, Patrick Stewart, Sam Claflin and Djimon Hounsou will play the Angels’ handlers, all of whom are named “Bosley,” as in the original TV show and the first two films.

Amid speeding super cars, spycraft and sexy cover outfits, Scott says of her sister spies, “The best part isn’t taking down international criminals. It’s you guys.”

The first Charlie’s Angels reboot in 2000, and its 2003 sequel, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, starred Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu.

The new Charlie’s Angels hits theaters November 15.

Live like Walter White — legally — with the interactive 'Breaking Bad' Experience

No Comments

Doug Hyun/AMC (NEW YORK) — El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie is out today on Netflix, and if you that isn’t enough excitement for fans of the Emmy winning series, you can always live the life with the Breaking Bad Experience.

The pop-up bar, which opens on October 16, was created by the same folks who built the interactive experiences based on the Peach Pit from Beverly Hills, 90210, and the Saved by the Bell pop-up — and like those, it features callbacks to AMC’s series, which ended six years ago.

Set against a backdrop that features Jesse Pinkman and Walter White’s mobile meth lab RV, The Breaking Bad Experience — which is, for now, only in Los Angeles — features show-inspired food like Heisenberg Sliders, desserts, and “chemically reactive” cocktails that patrons mix themselves.

In a statement, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan said, “It’s exciting to be able to give the folks who supported the show for all these years the chance to experience Walt’s world firsthand.”

Fortunately, fans can do so without running afoul of the law, drug cartels, or meth-head neo-Nazis.

ABC/Ida Mae Astute(NEW YORK) — Reckless driving was to blame in the car crash that seriously injured Kevin Hart and two others, according to a report relesed on Thursday.

The California Highway Patrol claims Hart’s friend Jared Black was driving the actor’s 1970 Plymouth Barracuda when he accelerated into a turn on Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles.

The car then slid down an embankment and slammed into a tree, according to the report.

Both Hart and Black’s fiancee, Rebecca Broxterman, were passengers in the vehicle, according to police. Hart and Black both suffered serious injuries to their backs, while Broxterm had minor injuries.

In spite of the report, Hart issued a statement through his lawyer on Thursday, saying, “I have nothing but love for Jared and wish him and Rebecca a speedy recovery.”

Hart is expected to make a full recovery and already back on set of his upcoming film Jumanji: The Next Level, a source tells E! News.

Jumanji: The Next Level, the sequel to 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, opens nationwide December 13.
