On the latest episode of Black Sails, Captain Flint continues his quest for the Urca d’Lima. The question is what kind of deal is he prepared to make in order to capture the infamous Spanish galleon?

The Mysterious Miranda

Flint has apparently been hiding out at the house of Mrs. Miranda Barlow. The exact nature of their relationship is unclear, other than the fact that they obviously trust each other since Flint asks Miranda to keep an eye on Mr. Guthrie as he recuperates. The only clue we have to their connection is that Miranda tells Mr. Guthrie that if he reads the writings of Marcus Aurelius (a Roman statesman who rose to heights thanks to powerful women), he might understand who she is. We are left wondering if Miranda is a prisoner in her own house as the pastor fears, or some discarded plaything of Flint’s as Morley later states.

Eleanor and Her Father

Clearly there is no love lost between these two, but they need each other. Eleanor is the consistent breadwinner who got her father the power and prestige he now enjoys, while Mr. Guthrie has the cash that Eleanor will need if supply ships are cut off by the British navy.

John Silver, the Ultimate Opportunist

John Silver desires one thing and that is to stay alive by any means necessary. In order to accomplish that, he leaves a critical detail out of his transcription of the whereabouts of the Urca d’Lima. He’ll provide that detail to Flint in good time if he is let back on the ship and given the same plunder share as the crew. As a further show of good faith, he reveals three traitors to Billy Bones: Randall, Morley, and Turk.

Billy Bones Gets an Education

Billy knows he needs information on potential mutineers but goes about it the wrong way, despite Gate’s warning. John Silver ends up escaping “the guard” Billy assigned to him, and gets Billy the information he needed. Billy challenges Morley, but realizes he doesn’t know everything about Flint when Morley mentions Mrs. Barlow.

Quartermaster Deal Brokers

Gates and Rackham are the brains behind the rule of their respective, hot-headed captains. After each realizes they have an individual weakness — Gates is too old and Rackham owes his crew money — they decide to join forces to bring in the Urca d’Lima. The deal goes through despite insults from Flint, and Rackham’s doubts that Eleanor can provide needed supplies. By nightfall, the deal turns wildly in Flint’s favor when Vane’s treatment of Max results in Eleanor stripping Vane of any ability to earn, and essentially giving his crew no choice but to work for Flint.

Max Gambles Badly and Loses Even Worse

Despite being offered protection by Eleanor after her betrayal, Max slips out and is quickly caught by Vane’s men where she is raped by them at their leisure. She and Vane eventually talk, and he states that he had to capture her, and hope she understands her fate. She reveals that she didn’t take Eleanor’s deal because money means more to Eleanor than her. Max believes that Vane will let her go on a boat that Rackham intends to put her on in the dead of night on the condition she not return. Vane’s plans are foiled when the crew sees Rackham sneaking Max out and claim they aren’t done with her yet, resulting in a prolonged, public rape. Despite being rescued by Eleanor, Max chooses to stay with Vane, saying that she is his until he regains his position that he lost due to her.

Vane Gets Screwed

Despite being the calmest participant in the meeting called by Rackham and Gates, and eventually winning Eleanor’s favor, both monetary and sexual, Vane soon loses it all. Eleanor, when she discovers what Vane’s crew has done to Max under his command, emasculates Vane by taking away his ability to provide his crew a living. The only two to stay with Vane are Rackham and Anne Bonney, and only because he threatens to kill them. It’s obvious that Vane is left seething with rage.

Get ready for a serious dose of nostalgia, 90s kids! Nickelodeon just premiered the trailer for the upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie at San Diego Comic-Con and you’re definitely going to want to check it out!

The upcoming made-for-TV movie centers around three siblings who find themselves immersed in the temple after breaking away from a jungle tour. Once inside, they discover all the legends they’ve grown up hearing about the mysterious temple are actually real.

Being trapped in the temple itself may sound cool at the beginning, but the siblings will soon learn that getting out may be tougher than they originally anticipated. They’ll have to follow the map and survive the Temple’s many hidden rooms if they want to make it out unscathed.

Check out the first trailer for Legends of the Hidden Temple below!

Fans of the original game show are sure to recognize quite a few of the most iconic aspects taken from the beloved 90s series. Olmec aside, the first action-packed trailer includes mentions of the steps of knowledge, the shrine of the silver monkey, and more— They’ve even managed to slip in mentions of some of the old teams contestant were able to play on when competing on the original game show!

The upcoming Legends of the Hidden Temple movie reunites Kirk Fogg (original TV how host) and Dee Bradley Baker (original voice of Olmec), and additionally stars Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley, and Jet Jurgensmeyer.

Legends of the Hidden Temple premieres on Nickelodeon in the fall of 2016

Hot off the heels of the Wonder Woman trailer DC has released our first look at the art for Justice League as well as the first trailer!

It’s a very exciting day to be a DC movies fan! After debuting the Wonder Woman trailer earlier today, DC surprised everyone with the first official Justice League trailer which has been simultaneously released publicly during its debut at San Diego Comic-Con. It should be noted that the video, posted on Director Zack Snyder’s Twitter account, includes a title card at the beginning denoting that this video was made specifically for fans at Comic-Con. “The following footage was prepared by the filmmakers as a special look for fans in attendance at Comic-Con 2016.”

Click full screen, turn up your volume, and get ready for this!


The “trailer” (if that’s what we’re calling it) doesn’t give away much about the plot of the movie, however. It features Bruce Wayne checking in and recruiting Cyborg, Aquaman and The Flash – the three of which weren’t as heavily featured in this year’s Batman V Superman.

One of the more thrilling parts of the video is when Bruce Wayne shows up to meet The Flash and throws a Batarang at him. We get to see the slow motion perspective of The Flash while a Batarang whizzes by his face, with him ultimately realizing who has just appeared before him. Before Bruce even has a second to sell him on joining the Justice League, he’s interrupted. “Stop right there. I’m in,” says The Flash.

After the mixed reviews of Batman V Superman from earlier this year, it looks like Justice League might have taken some notes from the massive success of Deadpool’s light-hearted but serious comic book movie template. It already feels like this ensemble cast will lend itself to making up some ground in terms of likability. Ezra Miller’s The Flash is easily the “you-gotta-love-this-kid” character based on his one scene alone. Meanwhile, Aquaman will appeal to those burly, rugged Wolverine style fans. Both character types were missing from the sometimes confusing Batman V Superman.

Check out the full photo of the Justice League featuring our first detailed looks of The Flash, Cyborg, Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and Aquaman together in one place.

We still have a while before we get to hit theaters for Justice League. The superhero sure-to-be blockbuster is set to hit theaters November 17, 2017.

WB debuted a new trailer for Wonder Woman on Saturday morning at San Diego Comic-Con.

Gal Gadot and the cast of Wonder Woman introduced the new trailer, which offers a massive new look at the first female-led super hero movie (during this new wave of super hero madness, anyway). Chris Pine’s Steve Trevor and Gadot’s Diana Prince seem to have some great chemistry. And unsurprisingly, Wonder Woman gets up to a lot of ass-kicking in the three minute preview. Perhaps one of the coolest moments is when she fends off a lot of fire power, and one of the funniest moments comes at the end, when Diana equates Steve’s secretary to a slave. Watch below:

The movie is directed by Patty Jenkins, who has clearly done an amazing job bringing Wonder Woman to life with Gadot.

A new poster for Wonder Woman was also released, finally revealing her (colorful!) costume:

Wonder Woman hits theaters June 2, 2017. The film’s synopsis reads:

Wonder Woman hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
