As If You Need Another Reason to Adore Chris Evans…

Standard


Need to make your day better with some Evans brothers singing and playing piano together? Of course you do!

This brotherly moment was posted by Chris’ brother Scott, who took the opportunity to embarrass his brother some more (check out another moment of brotherly humiliation here that took place during the press tour of Avengers: Age of Ultron) while the Captain America: Civil War star spent some time off from shooting the film to visit with his family.

After enjoying the down time and relaxation, Evans is back to work on Civil War expected May 2016. And with the recent news that Age of Ultron has become the fifth film in history to pass the $900 million box office mark internationally, Marvel Studios just continues to roll out its box office superhero hits.

Captain America: Civil War has already drawn the fans’ attention ever since the title was officially announced late last year and the cast is jam-packed similar to how the Avengers films have been. From Evans to Robert Downey Jr., the cast also includes Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Sebastian Stan, Elizabeth Olsen, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd and the list goes on from there.

Another member of the Captain America: The Winter Soldier cast, Hayley Atwell, who is not listed in the cast for Civil War, was on set the other day and did not hesitate to tweet about her time there. (There have been posts and reports that her character Peggy Carter passes away and the funeral takes place in the upcoming film)

Seriously, if you don’t follow Atwell on Twitter I highly suggest it! She’s hilarious and always tweets the best behind the scenes goodies from her ABC show Agent Carter (which just so happened to get picked up for a second season).

Until next time, fellow entertainment junkies, let’s all wait oh so impatiently for Civil War next year. But at least we have Ant-Man this July and whenever Age of Ultron is released on Blu-ray/DVD we can watch that on repeat. (The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy have been my go to movies as of late)

And as always, leave me any thoughts or comments below!

The Whispers: Making Imaginary Friends Even Creepier

Standard

Last night ABC welcomed the premiere of its new series The Whispers and the creepiness was felt in just the first few minutes of the show.

Little Harper lures her mommy into a, higher than it should probably be for a child, tree house (wobbling rope ladder also included) so she can play and ultimately “win” a mysterious game. Drill, who we realize is Harper’s imaginary friend, tells her (not heard by anyone other than Harper) that her mommy is “it” and the game can only be won if the mother steps on the X drawn in chalk on the floor of the tree house.

The mother, played by Autumn Reeser, agrees in order to get her daughter down from the tree house right after but when do things ever work out as planned on shows like this? They don’t because after stepping on the X and glancing over at some scattered tools nearby, Harper’s mommy falls through the wooden floor and in slow motion drops to the stone pathway below.

With a “Mommy, you can wake up now. The game is over,” Harper looks down at her mother lying their unconscious with a growing pool of blood forming around her head.

Creeped out by Drill and his disturbing “game” yet?

The show also includes Lily Rabe as Claire Bennigan, an FBI child specialist called in to investigate this game children are playing. We learn she’s had time away from work due to her husband’s death and wanting to spend time with her son, who has recently lost his hearing.

Her story also includes an obvious past affair with Wes, who works for the Department of Defense and is married to Lena with a young daughter. A young daughter named Minx, who of course receives a visit from our favorite creepy imaginary yet real friend while at the playground with her mother.

Throw in Harper’s story to Claire about another little boy who apparently failed Drill’s game yet still managed to set off a bomb and injure his mother. A strange bearded man, played by Milo Ventimiglia, who ends up in a hospital speaking Arabic in his unconscious state. This goes unremembered to him when he wakes up and also has no clue what his name is when the doctor questions him.

Minx creeps out another boy at the playground all thanks to Drill and continues to scare her mother while telling her that her dad basically doesn’t care about them and doesn’t want to talk to her mother. Lena takes this as her daughter knowing about her father’s affair. Minx also strangely knows exactly what her father’s computer password is and logs in under Drill’s apparent orders.

With a visit by Harper to the man in the same hospital as her mother, the end of the episode reveals that Claire’s husband was reportedly killed on the job in a plane crash. Wes finds the wreckage and calls Claire to inform her that the plane is missing the dead body of said husband.

Remember the mysterious bearded man? (Who ended up in the hospital because he passed out somewhere after writing a name on a piece of paper that goes floating away in the wind…probably important clue? Of course it disappears!) Back to the bearded man… He just happens to be Claire’s previously dead but now declared missing husband. We learn this when we see him escaping the hospital while the camera zooms in on a family photo in Claire’s home.

I’ve watched enough shows to have seen that somewhat coming. Mysterious man who has no idea who he is? Dead now missing husband? Wrecked plane found in a strange electrified…encasement? (That’s the only word I can think of to describe what the plane was found in) That mysterious man ends up being that missing husband! *AUDIBLE GASP*

But seriously, ignoring my blatant sarcasm, this show definitely has me hooked. I want to find out who this Drill is, the purpose behind this game and why he can speak to children through the lights (yes, at one point we do learn that…insert light bulb emoji here followed by smiling purple devil emoji. The Whispers Twitter account along with a million others used those exact emojis in their tweets. Including me. But that’s not really important.)

If this rambling recount of The Whispers premiere made any sense to you after watching or intrigued you enough to want to watch what I just spoiled for you, then leave your thoughts below!

Until next time, fellow entertainment junkies, check out the preview of what’s in store the rest of this season below.
