Charlie Brown and the gang have a whole new look in the first-full length trailer for the “The Peanuts Movie”, and it’s absolutely fantastic. We promise, you’ve never seen them quite like this.

From 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, our first look into the film shows Charlie Brown in 3D form, determined to change who he is and become a winner, not only to prove that the underdog can be somebody but, but to impress the new girl on the block too.  Charlie embarks on an epic journey with some of our favorite Peanuts characters and we couldn’t ask for more.

While the 3D animation gives Charlie Brown and his friends a very different look, the story stays true to the original cartoon, something Peanuts fans will love.

Get a sneak peak of the CGI versions of Charlie Brown and his friends in “The Peanuts Movie” trailer featured above, and don’t miss the movie, in theaters November 6.


‘I’m Tired of Watching America be Led by Lunatics’

posted by Corine Gatti

Conservative talk show host Kevin Jackson was signed to a national syndication deal by USA Radio Networks and will launch July 20th on USA Radio Networks XDS Channel 3. The Kevin Jackson Show will air weekdays from 12 noon to 3 p.m. Eastern Time.  Jackson said he was exhausted from the labels that conservatives were given, and the image needs an overhaul.

“I’m tired of watching America be led by lunatics. We need new messengers and leaders, people unafraid of being called names. For far too long we’ve allowed Liberals to label us. It’s time the truth comes out about who the real racist, misogynist, and ‘otherists’ are, and it’s certainly not conservatives.” Kevin Jackson


Jackson is looking forward to taking on conservative talk-show giant Rush Limbaugh, explaining that the country needs something different.

Excited would be understated.

“I’m happier than a tornado in a trailer park to be part of the USA Radio Networks family, and can’t wait to take on Rush Limbaugh,” Jackson said in a press release.

“Conservative talk radio has needed new blood for some time, and I’m just happy to know a vampire. America will get something different, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring it.”

Academy Award Winner Morgan Freeman Will Produce ‘The Story of God’

posted by Corine Gatti

National Geographic Channel and Executive Producers Morgan Freeman, Lori McCreary and James Younger of Revelations Entertainment announced today The Story of God, a new global series exploring mankind’s quest to understand the divine.

Host Freeman will embark on an epic exploration and intimate reflection on God, immersing himself in religious experiences and rituals all around the world, as well as becoming a test subject in scientific labs to examine how the frontiers of neuroscieNGLogo560x430nce and cosmology are intersecting the traditional domain of religion. The Story of God is slated to air on National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Mundo in 2016 in the U.S. and globally in 171 countries and 45 languages.


Each episode of The Story of God will center on one big question about the divine, from the mystery of creation, to the true power of miracles, to the promise of resurrection. These timeless and universal mysteries impact people from every faith. Freeman will be on the ground at some of humanity’s greatest religious sites, such as Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall, India’s Bodhi Tree, Mayan temples and the Lakewood megachurch in Texas. He’ll travel with archaeologists to uncover the long-lost religions of our ancestors, such as the 10,000-year-old ruins at Gobekli Tepe in Turkey or the ancient Celtic monument at Stonehenge.

“The story of God is one of the greatest mysteries and most important ideas in the world,” said Freeman. “For me, this is a personal and enduring quest to understand the divine, and I am humbled by the opportunity to take viewers along on this incredible journey.”


This is a quest for God — to shed light on the questions that have puzzled, terrified and inspired mankind. Today, those eternal questions are also posed by science. In the course of the series, Freeman will travel to labs where he’ll see the most accurate simulation of the creation of our universe unfold in front of his eyes, and become a test subject for neuroscientists who are searching for the effect of God on our networks of neurons.

All along this ambitious exploration of religion, Freeman will give his personal reflections on the divine, whether he’s in the back of a taxi leaving the Vatican or hiking through the Guatemalan jungle on the way to an abandoned Mayan temple.
