Agents Of 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' Season 2
Comic-Con, as you probably already know, is underway this weekend, and the abundance of teases, treats and hyperbole coming out of San Diego may render it hard to keep up. But what's easy for anyone to grasp is the fact that every other studio at the Con is playing catch-up to Marvel, the undisputed king of teases, treats and hyperbole. The comic company/studio has demonstrated its domination of the multiplex, and is now expanding its increasingly imitated world-building techniques into television. This allows the studio to introduce more characters from the comics into what may yet have to be re-dubbed "the Marvel Cinematic/Televised Universe," and season two of "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." looks to do just that.

Seth Rogen & Patton Oswalt Spoof 'True Detective' In New Viral Clips
The barbaric slaughterhouse we call life means "True Detective" is no more – at least not in the iteration that had Woody Harrelson, Mathew McConaughey and director Cary Fukunaga. That team will move on, but series creator/showrunner and main writer Nic Pizzolatto will be back. Read More »

It's strange how intermittently bestselling novelist Dean Koontz has been adapted, and how those adaptations—from the early Ben Affleck joint "Phantoms" to the Jeff Goldblum starring psychological thriller "Hideaway"—have been almost uniformly horrible. Koontz doesn't have the way with characters or the homespun prose of his contemporary Stephen King, but he sells almost as many books. And most are written in a singularly straightforward, cinematic style that should make big screen adaptations easy and accessible (his late '90s techno-thriller "Dark Rivers of the Heart" was the best movie James Cameron never made). So calling "Odd Thomas" the best Dean Koontz adaptation yet feels like damning it with faint praise, but it's true. Too bad it's barely getting released. Koontz's string of bad luck continues.

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
In a colorless and unremarkable New York apartment, the shy, anonymous Walter Mitty stares at the eHarmony dating page of his co-worker Cheryl (Kristen Wiig). Debating whether or not to make the online first move, Walter eventually daydreams about a spectacular manner in which to impress her. But back in reality, the question remains: can the timid man send the social networking equivalent of a hello to the girl he has a crush on? If he does have the chutzpah to do so, will the complexities of life and fate manage to interfere? Will Walter be able to seize the day and “just do it” like Nike might have asserted him to do a few decades ago?

The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty
When the first trailer arrived for "The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty" this past summer, it took many by surprise. Ben Stiller's remake of Danny Kaye's 1947 musical fantasy looked like it had it's own unique magic, one that got many talking about its Oscar potential. This past weekend, that theory got tested as 'Mitty' made its world premiere at the New York Film Festival to decidedly mixed reviews, and far from the sort of raves that would sustain a picture through the awards season. That being said, there is still a long haul to go and Fox isn't stopping yet.

Originally set to be Jonah Hill’s directorial debut, the Black List-approved “Kitchen Sink”—described as “The Breakfast Club” meets “Zombieland” with vampires and an alien invasion thrown in for good measure—has beefed its cast with some solid comedic forces. Deadline is reporting that Patton Oswalt, Bob Odenkirk and Ian Roberts (the Literal Doctor on “Arrested Development” and “Key & Peele” showrunner) have joined the film in unnamed roles, though it’s highly likely that the roles will be teachers or school administrators, given the high school setting of the genre mash-up.

Watch: Jason Schwartzman, Patton Oswalt, Billy Dee Williams & More Visit The 'Star Wars' Cantina

Of the many little things in the "Star Wars" universe that fans have latched onto, the Mos Eisley Cantina from the first "Star Wars" maybe one of the most enduring. Granted, a lot happened there. It's where Han Solo shot Greedo, where Han Solo and Chewbecca are first introduced and Ponda Baba gets his arm sliced off by Luke Skywalker. But even with all of that, the bizarre atmosphere and futuristic space jazz captured the imagination of diehard and casual fans alike, with that cantina continually referenced in pop culture, perhaps most notably a few years ago in an Adidas spot featuring Daft Punk, Noel Gallagher, Ciara, Ian Brown of the Stone Roses, David Beckham, Jay Baruchel and Snoop Dog (watch it here). Well, it has been revisited again.

A couple days ago, the internet was graced with a rather genius bit video via Patton Oswalt. While filming a guest spot on "Parks & Recreation," Oswalt turned what was supposed to be a simple scene of him filibustering a town hall meeting, into an 8-minute, breathless, totally dorky, pitch about what Disney should do with the "Star Wars" franchise. It starts along innocently enough, but soon Oswalt is talking about a Marvel crossover and it quickly devolves into geek-speak heaven.

Rumors have been quiet recently surrounding "Star Wars: Episode 7," but once the press gauntlet begins soon for "Star Trek Into Darkness," and J.J. Abrams gets inevitably grilled about his plans, we'll have plenty more updates. But until then, leave it to Patton Oswalt -- who, as fans know, is a man who knows his way around the "Star Wars" universe -- to awesomely and hilariously weigh in on 'Episode 7' with a nearly genius, 8-minute-long outtake from "Parks and Recreation."
