Chris Hemsworth says Avengers 4 is 'even more shocking' than Infinity War.

The fourth (and technically still untitled) Avengers movie is due out May 3, 2019.

“If you were shocked by [Infinity War], I think the second one is even more shocking, for other reasons entirely,” Hemsworth told Esquire in a new interview.

Knob Creek to Release One of the Most Anticipated Whiskeys of the Year.

Knob Creek’s to-be-released rye took home one of the biggest awards in spirits – Best Rye Whiskey at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

The limited-run rye is set for a summer release.

It’s cask strength, it’s aged 9 years and it’s not that expensive ($70 SRP).

Patrick Stewart may be hinting at a role in CBS All Access' Star Trek: Discovery TV series, possibly as Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

The fan favorite captain of the USS Enterprise-D on Star Trek: The Next Generation hasn't been a part of the franchise since the final TNG film, Star Trek Nemesis, released in 2002.

After Nemesis flamed out at the box office, and Star Trek: Enterprise was unceremoniously canceled in 2005, the Star Trek franchise went into hibernation until J.J. Abrams launched his blockbuster reboot in 2009, starring Chris Pine as a younger Captain James T. Kirk.

However, Star Trek was completely absent from television until Star Trek: Discovery premiered in 2017.

Shadowhunters won’t return for a fourth season.

Based on the Mortal Instruments novels by Cassandra Clare, Shadowhunters starred Katherine McNamara as Clary Fray, an aspiring artist who learns she’s a human-angel hybrid destined to help protect the New York City streets from all manner of creatures that go bump in the night.

Season to date, Shadowhunters is averaging barely 400,000 total weekly viewers, down sharply from Season 2 and ranking fifth ranking all current Freeform programs.

The supernatural drama will wrap things up in the spring of 2019 with a 12-episode run — aka Season 3B, titled Shadowhunters: The Final Hunt — that will include a two-hour series finale event.

Does anyone want a Jared Leto Joker standalone movie?

Jared Leto will reprise his “Suicide Squad” role as DC Comics supervillain the Joker in a standalone movie.

Variety said that Leto, 46, will both star in and serve as an executive producer of the untitled spinoff film for Warner Bros.

The trade magazine noted this will be separate from Todd Phillips’ upcoming Joker origin movie, part of a Warner Bros. division specializing in origin-story films and for which Joaquin Phoenix has been assigned to play the role.

Are you confused yet?

Jack Daniel's and the impact of trade war!

The maker of Jack Daniel's says tariffs are making it difficult to plan for the future.

The company, Brown-Forman (BFA), reported strong revenue and profit growth for the fiscal year that ended in April, and expects to report more gains ahead.

But it said competition in the developed world, coupled with "potential retaliatory tariffs on American spirits" means that it's "difficult to accurately predict future results."

US bourbon is one of the products targeted by foreign governments in retaliation for the Trump administration's tariffs on steel and aluminum imports from the EU, Mexico and much of the rest of the world.

Kelly Marie Tran, who starred in Star Wars The Last Jedi recently deleted her Instagram.

She did so due to harassment that included racist remarks.

We at Nerds Drink Whiskey find this behavior inexcusable.

If you have to resort to racism, you are in the wrong, weak minded, and a pathetic excuse for a human being.

The problems with The Last Jedi are not even her fault.

We are calling all nerds to call out this toxic behavior.

Share this video if you won't tolerate hate in our scene!

Greg Berlanti Inks Mega $300+ Million New Overall Deal.

Greg Berlanti has been the producer of Titans, Doom Patrol, Supergirl, Deception, The Flash, Arrow, Riverdale, Black Lightning, and that's just this year!

Not too shocking that Warner Bros. Television Group would want to keep him at the studio through 2024.

No financial terms are being disclosed but sources peg the pact at more than $300 million over the next six years.

Curiosity Rover Finds Ancient 'Building Blocks for Life' on Mars.

NASA's Mars rover Curiosity has identified a variety of organic molecules, the carbon-based building blocks of life as we know it, in 3.5-billion-year-old Red Planet rocks, one of the papers reports.

"These results do not give us any evidence of life," stressed study lead author Jennifer Eigenbrode, a scientist at the Solar System Exploration Division at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

"But there is a possibility that [the organics] are from an ancient life source; we just don't know," Eigenbrode told Space.com. "And even if life was never around, they [the molecules] tell us there was at least something around for organisms to eat."

HBO has officially greenlit a follow-up pilot to its acclaimed international hit Game of Thrones and it sounds just as massively ambitious as the original series.

The network has ordered a prequel drama from writer Jane Goldman and author George R.R. Martin.

The network has released an official description of the show’s story line.

Taking place thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour.

Since the eighth and final season of GoT is coming next year, the soonest we can see a successor series is 2020.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy stepping down this Fall?

The repercussions from The Last Jedi debacle continue it seems.

Rian Johnson created the most divisive Star Wars productions since Disney took over.

Solo did horrible at the box office.

And let's face it, The Force Awakens doesn't look as great as we first thought.

It seems the pressure is just too much and she will step down in September.

Do you think she's to blame?

‘Happytime Murders’ Creators Respond To ‘Sesame Street’ Lawsuit With Actual Puppet Lawyer.
His name is Fred, and he represents the puppet film “Happytime Murders.”
Sesame Workshop, the creators of Sesame Street, filed a lawsuit last week against the producers of the upcoming film “The Happytime Murders,” claiming trademark infringement over their tagline “No sesame. All street.”
“The Happytime Murders” is a raunchy R-rated movie produced by The Jim Henson Company that stars Melissa McCarthy. It is set in a world where humans and Sesame Street-style puppets coexist. 
The film’s creators, STX Entertainment, sent HuffPost a response to the lawsuit that they said was crafted by their puppet lawyer Fred, Esq. They included Fred’s photo as well.
“Happytime Murders” is released to theaters Aug. 17.

Avengers: Infinity War writers tease bigger story for two main characters in Avengers 4
Warning: Avengers: Infinity War spoilers ahead!
Writers for Avengers 4 spoke about their original plans in a new interview recently with the New York Times.
They always knew they wanted the ending with Thanos at the end of Infinity War.
There was some conversation about moving the scene to Avengers 4, but they decided against it.
Captain America and Black Widow have a much bigger role to play in Avengers 4.
In Avengers 4 the team and their friends have to figure out what happened.
Then stop Thanos and hopefully find a way to reverse his decision that also brings their friends back.

Who's to blame for Solo failure?
Solo only grossed $83 million over the Memorial Day weekend. 
“The Force Awakens” made over $2 billion, “Rogue One” raked in almost $1.1 billion, and “The Last Jedi” grossed $1.3 billion.
Yet fans who saw Solo are overwhelmingly positive. 
The Last Jedi has become the proverbial punching bag. 
Was the disappointing Solo box office merely backlash for mess that was The Last Jedi?
Does the blame fall at Rian Johnson's feet?
Will the Rian Johnson trilogy fail even more?
What are your thoughts?

'Solo: A Star Wars Story' Has Biggest Box Office Opening Ever for a Heist Movie
When it comes to the crime film sub-genre focused on the planning, execution, and aftermath of a major theft, Solo now holds the record for largest opening.

The Crow remake falls apart yet again. 
Studios have spent almost a quarter of a century trying to re-boot The Crow movies.

It was supposed to star Jason Momoa as the title character and be directed by Corin Hardy.
Are the re-boots as cursed as the Comics character created by James O’Barr?
Jason Momoa and director Corin Hardy formally withdrawn from the film now. 
Creative and financial differences was the reason given.

The Avenger That Can't Be Trusted To Keep A Secret.
Mark Ruffalo is “without a doubt” the worst at keeping secrets.
“But he’s also the person I probably love the most. He’s just the most — just one of the kindest people you’ll meet. And so, completely forgivable every time he gives away some plot point. He could get away with murder. Anyone else, it might be highly scrutinized and punished, but he’s beyond forgivable.”
Ruffalo famously let out a major Avengers: Infinity War spoiler last summer at D23 Expo when he went to say “half” of the characters in the then-upcoming crossover epic die, only to quickly correct himself and let slip “everybody dies.”

Suntory Hibiki 17 Whisky Discontinued!
Forbes reports that the Suntory Hibiki 17 will be discontinued as of September 2018.
From September 2018 the Hibiki 17 will gradually be removed from the core range, and production will stop.
The Hibiki 12 Year-Old was sadly discontinued in 2015
Due to several awards, both the price and demand for the Hibiki 21 has risen. 
We found the Suntory Hibiki 17 for $140, while the 21 was about $251.
We featured the Hibiki 17 on Nerds Drink Whiskey in July of 2016, and it has remained an all time favorite.
We mourn the loss of this great whisky.

What we know about Bill And Ted Face The Music so far:
It's thankfully NOT a reboot!
The story is about them not writing the song that saves the world yet.
Bill's daughter Thea and Ted’s daughter Billie help them.
They now have a 24 hour deadline to write that song.
They try to steal the song from their future selves. 
They're middle aged, their wives (the princesses), are now working double shifts at Denny’s, and they're poor.
The humor is not cynical, snarky, or dark. So they still have a sense of innocence. 
The budget is not that big.
They still want to 'Party on dudes!'
They still want us to 'Be excellent to each other.'
