Sting like a Spider

 

Marvel movies have made an art of the "stinger," the bonus scene typically seen in the middle or the very end of the closing credits, or both. The stinger halfway through the end credits of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 does not offer any scintillating peeks into the next entry in the franchise. In fact, it's a scene from X-Men: Days of Future Past featuring Jennifer Lawrence in kick-ass mode as the shape-shifting Mystique. No need to linger anymore, non-credits fans: the scene is all over YouTube.

Fall will be revealed as U.S. networks make their big pitch

 

For TV viewers, the new prime-time season traditionally starts in the autumn, sometime around the third week of September. But for the television industry and advertisers who spend big bucks on TV commercials in prime-time shows, the fall season actually begins in May. From May 12 to 16, the major U.S. networks -- ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and the CW -- will stage their upfront ad sales presentations in New York City. And while billions of dollars change hands in the Big Apple, TV watchers in smaller cities and towns will find out what the buzz-worthy shows, like last year's The Blacklist, will be when the 2014-15 fall TV season begins.

Changes brewing for beer festival

 

With the Winnipeg Wine Festival now in the rear-view mirror, curious imbibers can now look forward the overhauled Flatlander's Beer Festival. The festival takes place June 12 and 13 this year -- much earlier than previous incarnations, which were usually held in September. Flatlander's has also made the jump from the RBC Convention Centre to much bigger digs -- namely, ice level at the MTS Centre. Finally, tickets for Flatlander's are $39.95, and for the first time include the price of all samples -- gone are the days of having to buy sets of tickets every time hop-heads ran out. For the full list of breweries and ticket info see www.flatlandersbeerfest.com.
