SyFy Reveals Poster and Cameos for 'Sharknado: The 4th Awakens'


No 'Star Wars Day' celebration would be complete without a number of homages to the pop culture phenomenon. The latest tribute comes from SyFy channel's spanking new promotional poster for their upcoming fourth shark-pocalypse feature Sharknado: The 4th Awakens

As you can see, the poster inspired by A New Hope has our fearless hero Fin (Ian Ziering) along with the returning April Wexler (Tara Reid) whose fate will be determined via online poll. Hard to miss is the appearance of the Hoff, David Hasselhoff who reprises his role of Gil Shepard. It's more chaotic killer shark mayhem. 

It's five years after the East Coast was ravaged in Sharknado 3. Fin and his family have been sharknado-free but of course a sudden wave of violent shark-induced catastrophies have occured in new and weird ways that has them in danger once again. New additions to the campy horror disaster franchise include Gary Busey, Tommy Davidson, Imani Hakim, Cody Linley, Masiela Lusha and Cheryl Tiegs.

There's also an eclectic list of cameos that sound like they belong on The Apprentice. Robert Herjavec and Lori Greiner (Shark Tank), Kym Johnson (Dancing with the Stars), T’Keyah Crystal Keymah (In Living Color), Duane Chapman (Dog the Bounty Hunter), David Faustino (Married with Children), Stacey Dash (actress? and Fox News talking head), Vince Neil (Motley Crue), Wayne Newton (aka Mr. Las Vegas), and Baywatch stars Gena Lee Nolin and Alexandra Paul as scientists and astrophysicists.

So as you can see, Sharknado: The 4th Awakens is more of the same zany fun you'd expect. Watch it when it premieres on SyFy, Sunday, July 31 at 8PM ET/PT.

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

Eliza Dushku Stars in Sci-Fi Short 'The Gable 5'

Kevin Tancharoen, the filmmaker that created the popular webseries, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has returned to Machinima with his latest short film entitled The Gable 5 starring one of Joss Whedon's favorite action heroines, Eliza Dushku. The ties to the Whedon-verse are well intact as Tancharoen's brother-in-law is Jed Whedon, who co-produces along with wife Maurissa, the super spy drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. on ABC. Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

VIDEO: Happy Father's Day, Walter White!

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J. Mitte who played Walt Jr. to Bryan Cranston's Walter White, the school teacher turned meth kingpin on AMC's Breaking Bad, to reminisce about what made Big Walt a great dad. Maybe he wasn't so bad after all.




Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes Reunite for 'Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club' One-shot

This December, the Eisner Award-winning creative team of HELLBOY: KRAMPUSNACHT is reuniting for an all-new one-shot, HELLBOY &THE B.P.R.D.: THE SEVEN WIVES CLUB.


Written by legendary HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola and illustrated by acclaimed artist Adam Hughes, this ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder.


“The Victorians used to read and tell ghost stories during the Christmas season,” said Mignola. “We might not be reading by candlelight these days, but I do like a good ghost story during the holiday season, especially when there are stolen cadavers, vengeful spirits, and art by Adam Hughes.”


“I’m dead thrilled to be collaborating with Mike again and flabbergasted as always that anyone wants to work with me twice,” said Adam Hughes. “This one’s so spooky, I’m onl…
