The 10 Types of Architecture Students (presented by Leewardists.com)

From the 4 years I’ve spent in undergrad at Texas A&M and the extra 2 years in the Master’s program at UT-San Antonio, I can definitely say that we Architecture majors have a lot in common. As part of the lifestyle, we all have the same long-term relationship with coffee (going on 14 years strong), share the urge to cardboard shards and boxes to make models, and our university studio facility became our ‘home away from home’. Along with that, you get to know your fellow students (as you do in ANY other school), but in the world of architecture majors, our studio culture tends to hosts micro-societies of different personalities (after the break).  The Leewardists are rewriting the contemporary history of our civilization through the voice of this elusive being, The Architect.  For more about that comic series follow them on FacebookInstagram or visit their website.

An All-New “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2” Trailer!

Holy crap, this movie comes out in ONLY TWO MORE MONTHS?!?! AND Logan comes out THIS FRIDAY?!? AND Power Rangers in THREE WEEKS?!? AND Ghost in the Shell THE WEEK AFTER?!? Jeezus! Anyway, last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Chris Pratt stopped by to introduce a tease trailer — for the actual, full-length second trailer — for the upcoming theatrical addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and sequel to the surprise summer hit of 2014), Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2.  Once again, the universe needs saving and there’s no one more suited to the job than Marvel’s ragtag group of misfits.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, directed by James Gunn, hits theaters on May 5.

Watch the new ‘Wonder Woman’ trailer!

The newest trailer for DC’s Wonder Woman stand-alone film puts more of Wonder Woman’s (Gal Gadot) fighting capabilities on display, and shows a hint of a modern-set framing device to the film’s core World War I-era story. Essentially, the film is working as both a prequel/origin story for the character, as well as a follow-up to her silver-screen debut appearance in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice — note: watch ONLY the Ultimate Edition/Director’s Cut of that movie; the Theatrical Version does NOT exist… #ShortRantOver

Anyway, Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, arrives in theaters on June 2nd 2017.

Here’s the Trailer for ‘Logan,’ the 3rd (and final?) Wolverine Film.

Hugh Jackman is reprising his role as Wolverine for the film, Logan, directed by James Mangold, however unlike previous Wolverine appearances, Jackman won’t be buffed up and ready to fight. This film is based on an eight-issue arc that ran in the main Wolverine series created by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven between 2008 and 2009 called Old Man Logan, featuring a version of a nomadic, older, less ferocious version of Wolverine, who’s suffering from chronic back pain and diminishing healing abilities.

Logan hits theaters on March 3rd, 2017.
