The international trailer for "Fantastic Four" has been released. Enjoy --
Some other happy news on the TV front comes from ABC. The alphabet network is seriously considering a reboot of the all-time favorite "The Muppet Show." All but one cast member has signed on for the possible project. Whether the show gets the nod or not depends on Miss Piggy. She is the only holdout preventing ABC from going forward at this time. However, it looks hopeful.

With these shows going into their summer hiatus means other favorites will return for their Summer 2015 runs. Shows such as "Orphan Black," "Falling Skies," "The Last Ship" "Continuum," "Defiant," "Extant," "Game of Thrones," "Bitten," "Lost Girl," and others will fill in the void until Fall. For fans of "Sleepy Hollow" Fox has announced it will return for a third season in Fall 2015. Also coming back in the Fall are "Beauty and the Beast" on The CW, "The Blacklist" the highest rated show on television returns in the Fall on NBC as does NBC's other big it series "Grimm."
The CW's "Supernatural" will make television history upon its return. It's upcoming 11th season will make it the longest running SF series in TV history surpassing previous record holders "The X-Files" at 9 seasons and "Stargate SG1" at 10 seasons.
As well as all those already listed, also returning for new seasons will be "The 100," "Under the Dome," "Salem" and "Once Upon A Time." One show still on the cusp is ABC's "Resurrection" starring Omar Epps.
Of course the really big news has nothing whatsoever to do with films or television. It is the premiere of Marvel's "Daredevil" on Netflix beginning April 10. All episodes of the first season will be available for binge watching at that time. If the show gets a second season totally depends on the number of downloads Netflix records.
