Kingsman: The Secret Service Super Bowl TV Spot

1 hour ago

The Super Bowl TV spots continue to pile up. In addition to ads for Insurgent, Tomorrowland, Minions, Terminator Genisys, and Hot Tub Time Machine 2, here's a new one for Matthew Vaughn's upcoming Kingsman: The Secret Service. I've been hearing mostly positive things from early screenings of this movie, and hopefully it lives up to expectations. And I'm not sure if I've just been avoiding most of the marketing for this one so far, or if this is actually new footage, but that huge, chaotic fight sequence with Colin Firth dodging bar stools looks pretty freakin' nuts. Kingsman arrives in theaters on February 13th, and it should be an entertaining couple of hours to say the least.

Terrifying Medieval Darth Vader Armor

1 hour ago

Even as a kid I always thought that Darth Vader had a cool design, but I never thought it was terrifying until now. This custom built armor by Prince Armory truly channels the dark ages and the dark side. It's amazing all the detail that is put into this leather armor. Translating Vader's designs has created a much scarier Sith Lord. If you've got several thousand dollars you can hire Prince Armory to build something for you.

Ezra Miller Talks About Being Cast as The Flash

2 hours ago

One of the most surprising bits of major superhero movie casting was the announcement that Ezra Miller would play The Flash in Zack Snyder's Warner Bros./DC cinematic universe. As far as Miller's filmography goes, I've only seen The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and while he was fine in that movie, I didn't see anything in that performance that indicated he's the right guy to play the Scarlet Speedster on the big screen. But like I said, I've only seen one of his films, so Snyder certainly knows something I don't.

While at the Sundance Film Festival promoting his new film The Stanford Prison Experiment (read our review here), Miller spoke with MTV and revealed the surreal experience of being cast as The Flash.

He seems like sort of a strange guy from that video, but that mountain air and lack of sleep can do weird things to people at Sundance, »

The Littlest Dragon Age Art Series by Feral Kiwi Productions

2 hours ago

Flemeth is one of the most feared and powerful beings/witch/dragons in all of Thedas, but she is not known for being the most adorable...until now. Due to the talented artistic abilities of Tori McKenna (Feral Kiwi Productions), this has to be one of the cutest renditions...no scratch that - I'm calling it the cutest, no contest. It also takes a great artist to make me not hate Anders (still a little pissed about that whole "blowing up the chantry" thing). While this series focuses on Dragon Age II, hopefully a full-on Inquisition set isn't too far behind. The expressions are so over the top and fun, but the bonuses are in  the small details, like all the little mages under the templars foot, for example. Head over to her Etsy page if you want some prints, or if you just want to see more of her work. »

Star Wars: Battlefront — Endor Concept Art and Details

2 hours ago

With E3 coming in June and a release window set for this holiday season, the marketing for Star Wars: Battlefront has yet to even start. EA•Dice gave IGN an exclusive interview with Design Director Niklas Fegraeus and a piece of concept art that features two Rebels attempting to flank an At-st.

The Star Wars universe is vast and many of those locations have been on display in previous incarnations of the Battlefront series. Fegraeus talks a bit about how we might see those locations adapted:

“The scale of our maps and modes offer a great variety. We have actually made the decision to specifically tailor certain maps to certain game modes and what we get from that is not only incredibly varied scales, but also gameplay that will allow players to live out some of their most memorable Star Wars battle fantasies.”

Battlefront will use the advanced Frostbite »

Stranded Astronaut Uses Time Travel to Fix His Ship in Short Film Time Trap

4 hours ago

Remember in the beginning of Guardians of the Galaxy when Star-Lord is walking around that deserted planet and he has that device that allows him to see what previously happened? There's sort of a similar thing going on in this short film called "Time Trap," which features a silent astronaut who becomes stranded on Earth and needs to use time travel technology to repair his broken ship. It's a cool premise with more interactivity than we saw in the brief flash in Guardians, and there are some funny moments that work well in this short. Design-wise, it seems to take a bit from James Gunn's space opera as well as Chris Nolan's Interstellar (that ship looks like Tars, doesn't it?). Let us know what you think.

Turbo Kid is an Insanely Radical, Ultra Violent Adventure - Sundance 2015 Review

4 hours ago

Turbo Kid is hands down the most entertaining film that screened at Sundance this year. I had a ridiculous amount of fun watching this movie, and it one I know that a lot of you would like as well. Everything about this movie exploded with pure awesomeness in the most nostalgic and extreme ways.

To start off, the story is set in a post-apocalyptic 1997. Most of the world's population has been wiped out by acid rain, and fresh water is rare resource to come across. There are no cars in the film, so everyone, including the hardcore villains, ride bicycles as their main mode of transportation. Some of them are even decked out Mad Max style. In fact, the movie had a very Mad Max vibe to it, only it was more amusing. 

The film centered on a orphaned kid (Munro Chambers) who is surviving in this world after his »

Big Hero 6 — Hiro Hamada Flight Suit Cosplay by Liui Aquino

4 hours ago

I've seen a good number of Hiro Hamada cosplays since the movie Big Hero 6 came out, but this is the first flight suit version I've seen. Cosplay artist Liui Aquino, who we've featured on the site before (here), follows up with a solid Hiro Flight Suit cosplay.

Aquino on his cosplay:

It's really hard to cosplay a slender, 14 yrs old boy (which I know the fact that I will never look like him coz I'm not 14 Lol). Make-up is a challenge. Armored costume is a bit tricky and editing my self to look like the character is not my thing, but I do make my own version instead. I just wanna cosplay him coz I'm a big fan and I love the movie. What matter most is that I had fun doing this cosplay and I made lots of kids Happy! (and adults too haha) So here's my own version of Hiro's flight suit. »

M. Night Shyamalan on the Possibility of Unbreakable 2

4 hours ago

If there’s one M. Night Shyamalan movie I would kind of be excited about, it would be a sequel to his comic book inspired film, Unbreakable. I loved that movie, and I’m surprised that we still have yet to see a sequel. During an interview with Collider, the director was asked if he ever thinks about continuing the adventures of David Dunn (Bruce Willis), who becomes an unlikely superhero when he discovers that he’s virtually indestructible. This is what he said:

“Yeah, I do sometimes. I love those characters and I love that world. Of course, the whole world makes comic book movies now. At the time, it was completely novel.”

I have to say that as much as I don’t like most of the films that Shyamalan has made over the years, he did bring us one of the first grounded, reality-based superhero movies, which »

Are Your Favorite Pop Culture Billionaires Good or Evil?

4 hours ago

The GeekTyrant Vs crew has been running a Billionaire Beat-Down contest in which they duke it out (debate-style) to see who is the most badass billionaire in the pop culture universe. But they're not the only ones with billionaires on the brain. The team at Dorkly has put together a chart that ranks their own selection of wealthy pop culture figures on a scale of good to evil. I've never stopped to think about it, but I suppose it makes sense that Santa Claus is infinitely rich - I guess he must be in order to only work one day per year and pay all of those elves. And who the hell is Flintheart Glomgold?

Conan Hosts Mortal Kombat X Battle Between Super Bowl Players

5 hours ago

This week, Conan O'Brien sat down with two players who are playing in this Sunday's Super Bowl — Seattle's Marshawn Lynch and New England's Rob Gronkowski — and since Conan has his very popular "Clueless Gamer" segment on his show, he invited the two guys to face-off against each other playing the upcoming Mortal Kombat X.

Lynch, who has famously been uninterested in talking to the media during this football season, has no problem talking in this video, and Conan provides some hilarious commentary (as you might expect). Check it out below:

Epic Game Of Thrones Season 5 Trailer

5 hours ago

Last night, HBO's Game of Thrones made its IMAX debut, and with it came the first full trailer for Season 5. Next season looks absolutely incredible! This epic first trailer definitely got the excitement flowing in my veins for the series' return. I wish I could just binge-watch it all right now. There's a lot of stuff packed into this trailer, and it's sure to make fans happy.

The fifth season is based mostly on the fourth and fifth novels of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, which are titled "A Feast for Crows" and "A Dance with Dragons." The storylines of the two books run concurrently but follow different sets of characters

Game of Thrones returns to HBO on April 12th at 9 pm. I also included a behind-the-scenes featurette that focuses on the tech of bringing Game of Thrones to IMAX glory.

Review: The D-train with Jack Black and James Marsden - Sundance 2015

6 hours ago

You know those people you went to high school with who are still reliving the "glory days?" The ones who know what every single member of your graduating class is up to these days? The character Dan Landsman (Jack Black) in the movie The D-Train is one such guy. Living in the town he grew up in, and married to his high school sweetheart, Dan is the over-zealous head of his high school reunion committee. Fueled by a lack of enthusiasm mixed with a desire to fit in with his former classmates, Dan becomes determined to get the most popular guy from school and the star of a Banana Boat commercial, Oliver Lawless (James Marsden), to come to the reunion.

This is a movie that starts out like any other well-told story about a guy trying to fit in with his (former) classmates, but quickly takes a comically dark turn »

Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX Dates Confirmed, More Trilogies Teased

8 hours ago

As you know, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the film that is going to launch a whole new set of Star Wars films. I couldn't be more excited about what is coming our way. I trust that Disney and Lucasfilm are going to deliver some incredible Star Wars movies that are going to make fans extremely happy.

The first Star Wars standalone film is set to open December 16th, 2016. That first standalone movie could be anything, and we're all patiently waiting to see what it is. We've previously heard that Lucasfilm will eventually get to the point of releasing two Star Wars films a year. In a recent shareholders report, Disney CEO Bob Iger talked about seeing footage from The Force Awakens, and also confirmed the years that Rian Johnson's Episodes VIII and IX will be released. He also teases that this might not be the only »

Menacing Jurassic World Photo Tease Featuring Indominus Rex

8 hours ago

Thanks to the Jurassic World website, we have confirmation that the new breed of dinosaur being introduced in the film is called Indominus Rex. We also have an image for you to check out that offers a little tease of how crazy this thing is actually going to look. The toy stuff that we've seen so far don't seem to do it any justice. I'm a big fan of the menacing snarl it gives through the cloud of smoke. We also have an official description of the beast:

"We set out to make Indominus the most fearsome dinosaur ever to be displayed at Jurassic World. The genetic engineers at our Hammond Creation Lab have more than delivered."At first glance, Indominus most closely resembles a T. Rex. But its distinctive head ornamentation and ultra-tough bony osteoderms can be traced from Theropods known as Abeliosaurs. Indominus’ horns have been placed above »

The Minecraft Version of Game Of Thrones' Westeros is More Impressive Than Ever

22 hours ago

A couple of years ago, we featured a video of the Game of Thrones continent of Westeros as created in the game Minecraft. But now, the creators of that video are back with an update, and while we've been letting time pass like a bunch of time-wasters, they've been hard at work building a bigger and more detailed version of Westeros. WesterosCraft, as they call it, is a block-by-block recreation built by a community of thousands of people, and in this new video (narrated by Bran Stark himself, Isaac Hempstead-Wright), we get a great look at exactly how far they've come. It's a stunning achievement, and a testament to the idea of a group of people finding common interests online and creating something breathtaking. They're not quite done yet, but things are looking pretty damn impressive so far.
