Disney’s new DuckTales adventures will debut as a one-hour movie on Saturday, August 12th (when it will run for 24 consecutive hours beginning at midnight/11C) before premiering as a series on Sunday, September 23rd.
The premise finds Donal Duck taking his nephews – Huey, Dewey and Louie – to visit their reclusive great-uncle Scrooge McDuck. Their visit to McDuck Manor leads them to learn about long-kept family secrets.
Additionally, a DuckTales: All Ducked Out Avatar Creator will debut in July on the Disney XD App and Disney LOL.
With the Emmys® coming up on Sunday (CBS, 8/7C), the Academy has announced its final round of presenters, including multiple-Emmy® winners Margo Martindale, Bryan Cranston, Claire Danes and Allison Janney.
Melissa McCarthy has shown she can play a character (Saint Vincent, everyone!), which is why Spy is so much fun. In Susan Cooper, CIA super analyst she’s found a character – and a potential franchise – that she can really sink her teeth into.

Bianca is not the most popular girl in her class, but she has two really good friends and if she can’t bring herself to say more than three words in a row to her crush, well, she’s still got her friends. That is, until her neighbor, high school football star Wesley, informs her that she’s their DUFF – Designated Ugly Fat Friend.
When I first heard that there was going to be a Despicable Me spin-off starring the Minions, I admit to be doubtful – though he end credits of Despicable Me 2 were pretty funny.
Now, after two trailers (check out the second one after the jump), I’m really looking forward to watching the little yellow guys navigate their way through a feature-length adventure. Minions premieres on July 10th.
