Joss Whedon, fresh from the success of Marvel's "The Avengers," has announced that his online singalong blog, "Dr. Horrible," will make its television debut via CW on Tuesday, October 9th, at 9pm. (Check out official "Dr. Horrible" site right here)
Whedon can create a mean musical! Remember the "Buffy" musical episode, "Once More with Feeling?" Yup, Whedon is good at telling a story through songs.
Starring Neil Patrick Harris as Billy aka Dr. Horrible, the fun singalong webstravaganza also stars Felicia Day as Billy's crush Penny and Nathan Fillion as Captain Hammer.
Check out the trailer of "Dr. Horrible:"

Bless Hans Zimmer's heart. The Oscar-winning composer (Disney's "The Lion King") of "The Dark Knight Rises" has recorded a song to benefit the victims of the Colorado shooting tragedy. On Zimmer's Facebook page, he says:
"Aurora" is dedicated to those who lost their lives and were affected by the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. I recorded this song in London in the days following the tragedy as a heartfelt tribute to the victims and their families. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Aurora Victim Relief organization.
"Aurora" is available internationally via iTunes, and you can also go to MoonToast to donate.
Thank you Mr. Zimmer!

The story of the box-office weekend is -- "The Dark Knight Rises" continues to muscle its way on top, while newcomers "The Watch" and "Step Up Revolution" limp.
"The Dark Knight Rises," the final film in the Batman trilogy by writer/director Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale as our masked avenger, won the weekend for the second week in a row with $64.1 million. ("THE DARK KNIGHT RISES" MOVIE REVIEW)
Meanwhile, "The Watch," the new sci-fi comedy starring Vince Vaughn, Ben Stiller, and Jonah Hill disappoints with just $13 million for the No. 3 position.

Another year, another “Step Up” movie, this time it’s “Revolution” and is set in Miami. Here’s the quick synopsis: Kathryn McCormick is Emily, an aspiring professional dancer who just arrived in Miami. She soon meets a boy on the wrong side of the tracks named Sean (Ryan Guzman). Soon, the two collide in brilliant choreography. Are you ready to dance? Watch my review and then count – 5,6,7,8!
