Set sometime in the future when the world is taken over by an alien race called Souls, a parasitic breed of aliens that attach themselves to a person's brain and take control of the body (Body Snatchers, anyone?), the story revolves around a soul named Wanderer, and its human host, Melanie.

It was just another day at work for the alien Wanderer until it realized its host won’t be giving up her mind that easily. Melanie fills Wanderer's thoughts with visions of the man she loves - a human named Jared who still lives in hiding. Wanderer eventually succumbs to Melanie's emotions and suddenly develops a yearning for the man it never even met. As outside forces make Wanderer and Melanie unwilling allies, they set off to search for the man they both love.

Watch the teaser trailer below:

The Host is set to be released on March 29th 2013.

A remake of the late ‘80s TV drama series 21 Jump Street) has taken over the top spot for this week’s box office.

Now that season two of The Walking Dead TV series is over, fans have to wait until its return on October. But you can continue playing out your zombie fantasies because come this April, Telltale Games will release The Walking Dead: The Game.

In the game, you’ll get to play as the new character Lee Everett rather than Rick Grimes, so that may or may not disappoint a few fans. And speaking of disappointments, Walking Dead comics creator Robert Kirkman consulted with Telltale on the game’s development so that means you need not worry about the beloved franchise getting the Michael Bay treatment. ;)

Tom Morello Performs at SXSW and Rolling Stone’s Rock Room

Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave headlined the Occupy SXSW which was busted by cops after leading the crowd when he did the American folk song ‘This Land is Your Land’.

Check out his performance at SXSW:

Sofia Vergara’s Racy Esquire Shoot Goes on The Philip DeFranco Show

and other news. While the Modern Family hottie steams up the cover and pages of Esquire magazine, Philip DeFranco covers more serious news tidbits in this episode such as employers asking for their staff's Facebook passwords, the prison industry, and a follow-up to the Trayvon Martin shooting. But it doesn't stop there. Phil also discusses the fans' outrage over the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, wherein according to the host,"...Michael Bay told them to calm their vaginas down." That, and Taylor Momsen getting a lap dance from porn babe Jenna Haze.

Watch it all and more right here, and stay tuned for more updates at The Philip DeFranco Show!

Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles Are Now Aliens?

After disappointing some fans of the original Transformers animated series, it seems like film director Michael Bay is at it again, but this time it’s with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans. Bay just announced the other day to the crowd at the Nickelodeon Upfront in New York that he plans to change the origins of the beloved turtles from simply being mutants into being interstellar space aliens! Yep, you heard it: Aliens. Kinda makes one wonder why he doesn’t just make an entirely different movie and call it "Teenage Turtle Karate Aliens" or something.

Major facepalm moment.

Needless to say, the idea didn't quite sit well with a lot of  fans. Twitter and YouTube are filled with disapproving comments --  just try doing a keyword search on YouTube with "ninja turtles" and "michael bay" and you'll see what I mean. Check out the comments on this YouTube video, for starters.

Scriptcast – Podcast for Screenwriters

Just over a week ago I featured a podcast channel called Writing Excuses which deals primarily with fiction writing. This week I’d like to feature another podcast that focuses on another form of literature — screenwriting — and it's called Scriptcast which is hosted by Doctor Eric and his sidekick Matt.

Doctor Eric is a professional screenwriter and script reader, and each week, he and Matt discuss things about screenwriting and TV writing. The show started just December of last year, and even though it somewhat has a irregular schedule, it receives plenty of positive feedback and testimonials from listeners. If you ask me, that alone is good enough reason as to why this podcast is really worth listening to!
