The always rugged and reliable Hound, one of the Family of Medium Tactical Vehicles from Oshkosh Defense.
Hound’s alt-mode in Hasbro toy line used to be a military jeep:
But I guess Michael Bay wants something bigger to match the scale of Optimus Prime. But then, he could have chosen a hummer… Why did he pick up a truck that could come straight from Mad Max or Death Race?
Take a look to the first official movie poster of Pop Star Puppy (aka Dog Idol), the upcoming comedy family movie from IFA based on a script by Pyung Kim and Andrew Van Slee:

POP STAR PUPPY
A boy’s best friend is now music’s top dog.
Plot: “A dog named Dino is bought by a soldier named Andrew for his son Austin. Andrew is headed back to Afghanistan until Christmas and wants to give his son something to cheer him up. Little does Andrew or Austin know that Dino has a gift…he can sing and he sings great! If Dino can learn to sing in front of others instead of just in the shower or behind a curtain, he has enough talent to appear on the American Pop Icon show. Is it possible that Dino will be the next idol of this popular American show? And, if a man named Frank has his way, will Dino be swiped from Austin for Frank’s own selfish purposes?”
To play the lead star, two dogs, Dino and Bella, have been “hired” for the lead canine role so they can interchange them throughout the movie, this way they don’t get burned out on set. There’s also a fully mobile remote-controlled electronic dog that can talk and move around like Dino and Bella.
A look at the living puppies below:
Those puppies are so cute!
If you wondering about the dog breed, they’re King Cavalier Spaniels. :)
Check out the first official teaser trailer of Helix, the latest science-fiction TV series from Producer Ron Moore (who produced the reboot TV series Battlestar Galactica):
A team of scientists working in secret are about to change the world… or end it…
Summary: “Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation. ”
The title of the series obviously refers to the double helix structure of DNA. Now, where does the DNA causing the disease comes from? Is it the result of genetic engineering or did they stumble upon alien DNA?
Producer Ron Moore (who also produced the reboot TV series Battlestar Galactica) talks about Helix in this video:
The TV series Helix should premiere on SyFy sometimes in 2014. :)

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson at Google? It’s like two demons in heaven!
Check out the official trailer of Almost Human, the upcoming science-fiction TV series from the creators of Fringe:
Summary: “The year is 2048. John Kennes (Urban), a cop who survived one of the most catastrophic attacks ever made against the police department, wakes up from a 17-month coma, he can’t remember much – except that his partner was killed. Because of the attack he lost one of his legs and is now outfitted with a highly sophisticated synthetic appendage. Now by mandate, every cop must partner with a robot. And despite his passionate aversion to androids, John is paired up with Dorian (Michael Ealy), a discontinued android with unexpected emotional responses. Although such responses were deemed flaws, it is in these ‘flaws’ that John relates to Dorian most. After all, John is part-machine now, and Dorian is part-human. John and Dorian’s understanding of each other not only complements them, it connects them.”
Here’s the main cast of the TV series:
– Karl Urban as John Kennex – Lili Taylor as Captain Maldonado – Mackenzie Crook as Rudy Lom – Michael Ealy as Dorian – Michael Irby as Richard Paul – Minka Kelly as Valerie Stahl
Thank God J.J. Abrams still finds time to come up with such great TV shows: I’m already hooked by Almost Human! :)
