Likewise, as is expected with the original shows, it'll be available to all of Netflix's subscribers.

‘Wet Hot American Summer’ adds Jon Hamm, Chris Pine and more

Netflix's limited series reboot of "Wet Hot American Summer" is starting to get a bit crazy. Rumors of the series started surfacing about a year ago, and eventually spawned into a confirmed project that was promised to be seeking the original (and now largely famous) cast. That panned out, and the recent release of the show's first teaser trailer confirmed a load of those original cast members have returned. The list of stars is already big, but just got a bit larger with Jon Hamm, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, and Jason Schwartzman all being tipped as on board.

Nickelodeon to introduce its own video subscription service

As consumers continue to drop traditional cable in favor of various video streaming services, some companies and networks are (finally) accepting reality and getting on board with their own offerings. HBO announced its own video subscription service plans in the recent past, and consumers recently scored another option with the introduction of Sling TV. Viacom, which has notoriously been picky about where and when its shows are available online, is about to do its own dabbling in the world of video subscription services, and it'll be doing so through Nickelodeon.

LEGO Avengers SHIELD Helicarrier revealed: very massive

To be entirely clear up front, this model does NOT reflect what we're about to see in the Avengers: Age of Ultron film. Instead, this is a set made based on the first Avengers film, already released in theaters and long since placed on Blu-ray, DVD, etc. This particular set also reminds us that there's more than one scale at which LEGO sets are built - this one contains several super tiny minifigs (called MICROfigures) that allow this set to exist on a scale that's reasonable for the average builder.

Snapchat, online studios buddy up for new ‘SnapperHero’ mini series

Snapchat, online studios buddy up for new ‘SnapperHero’ mini series

The latest Snapchat news is a bit weird, to understate things. The company is apparently on the prowl to attract entertainment entities, as it'll be shoving a new series of sorts into users' feeds soon: SnapperHero. This series will be comprised of several short video episodes starring popular users from Vine and YouTube as superheroes; Snapchat won't actually be involved in the creation process. A couple studios will be taking care of that part, and oddly enough, AT&T will be helping foot the bill.
