Don't Drunk Text a Doctor Who Fan

4 hours ago

Few things are more annoying than getting a drunk text from a stranger in the middle of the night. They are thankfully rare and are usually best ignored. But if you’re bored and feel like messing with a poor, witless drunkard, this might be a fun thing to do. A Doctor Who fan received a mis-sent text that said, “tortyly drunk riht now. straight men everhwere.” Clearly, this was someone who needed to be messed with. Her friend posted screen grabs of the resulting conversation on tckld, and it is hilarious. Doctor Who fans will find one side of the conversation familiar. Even if you aren't a Doctor Who fan, this is pretty funny.

I like to think that guy woke up hungover in a cemetery with no idea how he got there.

P.S. Yes, I know that it is possible to fake text conversations. I don't care. »

Rocket Raccoon #3 by Skottie Young — Marvel Comics Preview

5 hours ago

In the Marvel movies, Rocket Raccoon and his trustee companion Groot have just teamed up with a thief, an assassin, and a maniac to form the Guardians of the Galaxy. In the comics, however, Rocket has ventured out on his own in a solo series being written and illustrated by Skottie Young with color art by Jean Francois Beaulieu. Comicbook.com debuted a preview of Issue #3, which finds our hero teaming up with Macho Gomez. The picture above is the cover by Young, and I’ve also included the variant cover below, which was done by Pascal Campion.

Everyone’s favorite pistol-packin’ procyon* finally finds himself face-to-face with the intergalactic imposter. • It’s macho ado about everything as Macho Gomez guest-stars and the Ex-Terminators are hot on Rocket’s tail! *Procyon is the scientific term for raccoon, obviously.

Rocket Raccoon #3 is due out September 3rd. To read the first four pages of the issue, »

Marvel's Agent Carter Casts Ally and Antagonist

5 hours ago

Here’s some good news for everyone looking forward to Marvel’s Agent Carter series. The studio’s second foray into primetime television looks really promising — it’s a kicky period piece with some great talent attached to it — but we don’t actually know much about it. They didn’t shoot a pilot (the Agent Carter Marvel One-Shot stood in for that), and as of San Diego Comic-Con, they hadn’t written any scripts. All we really know is that Hayley Atwell is returning to the role, and it is set in the immediate aftermath of World War 2 (and Steve Rogers' "death") and focuses on the early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the titular agent’s struggles as a badass woman in a male-dominated industry.

But today Marvel has made two casting announcements, one fantastic, and one kind of meh. On the fantastic front, »

Shaun The Sheep The Movie - Teaser Trailers for the Wallace and Gromit Spin-off

6 hours ago

Earlier today, Studio Canal and Aardman released the second teaser trailer for Shaun the Sheep the Movie. We didn’t post the first teaser trailer that was released earlier this year, so I included that below as well. The first teaser didn’t contain any actual footage from the Wallace and Gromit spin-off, but it did have some funny gags so it’s worth checking out. The newest teaser, however, gives us a look at some of the Ferris Bueller’s Day Off-type shenanigans Shaun, Bitzer, and The Flock get into in the Big City. But there’s a little more to the story than that. Here’s the synopsis:

When Shaun decides to take the day off and have some fun, he gets a little more action than he bargained for. A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan and a very steep hill lead them all to the »

Supercut of Edgar Wright's Dramatic Close-Ups

6 hours ago

As we’ve said before, Edgar Wright is one of the most visually inventive directors working today. That’s just a fact. He makes dynamic use of his camera to aid storytelling and joke-telling. One of his signature moves is using extreme close ups to tell visual jokes, often with crash zooms and ominous music. Filmmaker Jaume R. Lloret has gone over Wright’s films with a fine tooth comb, pulling examples from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End to create this entertaining supercut of extremely mundane objects extremely close-up. Check it.

Star Wars: Episode VII — Fan-Made Stormtrooper Concept

6 hours ago

Two weeks ago we posted what might be the new Stormtrooper helmets in Star Wars: Episode VII. Today GeekTyrant reader Ted Koti sent us these concept photos, and they look like a pretty good approximation. There are rumors that we'll see some black and chrome variants in the movie. I'm personally exited to see the chrome ones.

Jesse Eisenberg on Figuring out the Psychology Behind Lex Luthor

7 hours ago

In a recent interview, Jesse Eisenberg spoke briefly about playing Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. From the details about the character that leaked earlier this year, we are already aware that this is going to be a unique take on Superman’s arch nemesis. Eisenberg’s casting alone is probably the clearest indicator of that. In the interview, the actor confirms that he is indeed making the character his own and further explains how he worked with one of the writers to figure out a more real and modern approach. 

"There are some indications of how the character should behave based on the script, and then an actor makes it his or her own,” Eisnberg told Total Film. “I got to know one of the writers Chris Terrio, and we were able to discuss things at length and figure out who this person is to create »

5 Geeky Things We Want This Week, Back to School Edition

7 hours ago

This is Labor Day weekend, the official end of summer. Or really, the unofficial official end of summer, because calendar-wise summer doesn’t end until the Autumnal Equinox, which is September 23 this year. However, Labor Day is when all fun, beachy activities cease, and we all head back to school. Or if we are adults, back to the grind. Which is why, even if you have been out of school for years, it’s a good time to do a little back to school shopping and pick up whatever supplies you may need. Or you can just buy this stuff for your kids, but that is less than no fun. That is negative fun.

Bravest Warriors Catbug Backpack

Bravest Warriors is an odd little show on the Cartoon Hangover YouTube channel. It was created by the creator of Adventure Time, and good hell, Catbug is adorable. Part blue cat and part ladybug, »

"The Future Begins" for The Flash

8 hours ago

The CW released a new trailer for The Flash, their newest Superhero show, and it looks fantastic. Okay, let’s be real. I’ve seen the pilot, and it is fantastic. Without giving too much away, the first episode lays out Barry Allen’s backstory, the origin of his powers, the origin of a large and varied pool of villains of the week, a (probably) season-long mystery, and a (I’m guessing) series-long mystery. That seems like a lot, but several of those things come out of the same event, so it doesn’t feel rushed or disjointed. That’s a feat.

Maybe that shouldn’t be surprising, given that The Flash comes from the same creative team as Arrow, but it is interesting that Arrow and The Flash are very different shows. They are grounded in the same universe, but Barry Allen has a sunniness that Oliver Queen lacks, »

Famous Actors in Old TV Ads [Fixed]

8 hours ago

World Wide Interweb has cut together an almost 4 minute video of famous actors in old TV ads. Before they were getting multi-million dollar movie deals these stars where selling us breakfast food, soap, soda, burgers, and hemorrhoid cream. The video quality is pretty poor, but it doesn’t look any worse than old VHS.

Thanks Uproxx for putting the roxx in Uproxx.

Star Wars: Episode VII — Shooting Resumes With Harrison Ford

9 hours ago

Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed shooting after a two week break to give Harrison Ford time to recover from an injury. Ford was hurt on set 11 weeks ago when a part of the set of the [Redacted] fell on his leg. Four weeks ago we reported that he was able to walk without crutches and that his injury was healing well.

EW sources say that production is “going, well … full Force,” and that is probably necessary. The movie is still in principle photography and likely has a long post production scheduled, so they need to really move quickly.

Star Wars: Episode VII makes the jump to hyperspace December 18th, 2015. »

Joyous Little Mermaid Art by Lois van Baarle

9 hours ago

I just love this Little Mermaid art by Lois van Baarle. There is so much personality and joy in this rendering of the Disney princess Ariel. The proportions, colors, and just every stroke are a real display of talent. Make sure to check out van Baarle’s full portfolio/blog. It’s full of really great art. Found via The Art of Animation »

Gone Girl — Affleck and Pike on Whether It's a Bad Date Movie

10 hours ago

According to Empire "an underwater scene (hence the weird headgear, which will allow properly wavy hair to be added late)"

All nine GeekTyrant articles about Gone Girl are preceded by the name the name of its director — David Fincher. We are all huge fans of his and will watch pretty much any movie he makes. Fincher told Empire that Gone Girl is a date movie that will "end 15 million marriages." I know his films can be disturbing, but if this movie ends your marriage, odds are it was heading that way already.

Ben Affleck weighs in on Fincher's statement.

"I actually think this is the perfect date movie, not because I think it'll result in divorce - I think that's just David's fantasy - but because it's the kind of movie that a husband and wife could talk about afterwards. I think a man and a woman would have different takes on what happens. »

Star Wars Inspired Oculus Rift Tech Demo

10 hours ago

Wanna watch some hot lightsaber on laser action? Then we’ve got the video for you. Watch a “Vr enthusiast” strap in and live out his wildest Star Wars dreams. 

Via Stem System:

This is one of the first videos in which we show our Stem Pack, which is mounted to the strap of the Oculus Rift DK2 to provide full position and orientation tracking for the user's head. Stem Controllers provide tracking for each hand. The lightsaber or sword is the true test for a one-to-one motion tracking system in Vr, because it requires low latency, and almost perfect tracking of both position and orientation between your physical and your virtual self as you perform swipes, slashes, blocks and counters with the lightsaber. The Stem System and the SixenseVR Sdk make this experience possible, and also make it easy for developers to create these types of applications quickly. The experience is a fantasy, »

Netflix Just Bought Exclusive Streaming Rights to The Blacklist

21 hours ago

Netflix has made a deal with NBC and Sony Pictures TV for the exclusive streaming rights for the hit drama The Black List. They will be paying $2 million per episode, which beats the price of $1.35 million they are paying out for AMC’s The Walking Dead.

High priced syndication deals like these have previously been the domain of cable TV. In June, Netflix surpassed HBO with over 50 million subscribers and continues to grow quickly in international markets.

After Breaking Bad started streaming on Netflix, its ratings doubled. So these deals not only get Netflix more subscribers, but helps shows tap its huge subscriber base. I really respect Netflix as they make these aggressive moves. I can’t wait to see what they will do next.

Walking Dead Season 5 Featurette Focuses on Location Shooting

23 hours ago

In this featurette for the fifth season of The Walking Dead, we’re taken behind-the-scenes and explore some of the new locations that we will see in the upcoming season. The video shows us the lengths the crew goes to in order to be accommodating and respectful of the locals — unlike those real zombies who come marching into town like they own the place, leaving their decomposing limbs scattered all about.

Season 5 premieres on October 12th at 9:00pm Et/Pt on AMC. To watch the most recent teasers, click here, and to watch the Comic-Con trailer, click here.

David Fincher Directed Hot, Romantic Gap Ads

28 August 2014 5:25 PM, PDT

Gap is embracing the gospel of Normcore, and they’ve decided that David Fincher is the man to sell it to the masses. Fincher has directed four commercials for the brand, and they are basically fantastic. I am packing up all my interesting and stylish clothes as we speak, and embracing a wardrobe of gap pants, plain Ts, and Birkenstocks.* It’s really fun for fans of the director (so, not Tyler Perry) to see his light, whimsical side that we never knew was there. I kind of wish these were early clips from a new movie. Check them out and let us know which one is your favorite. I find it hard to choose.

*Okay, I already wear some of these things. Maybe all of them. I am a Normcore queen. Bow before me.

A Nerf Office War Turns Deadly - Office Jedi

28 August 2014 5:10 PM, PDT

Nerf toys are supposed to be fun and safe, but we’ve all taken a dart to the eye or learned that those foam bullets don’t feel so soft at point blank range. In this short from The Warp Zone, a Nerf office war escalates quickly when Nerf swords and guns turn into lightsabers and blasters. People start losing their heads… literally.

"Nerf Star Wars - Office Jedi"  was written by Michael Schroeder and Michael Adams Davis, who also star in the short alongside the director, Sam Macaroni. You can check out more of Macaroni’s short films here.

Beautiful Infographic Identifies Over 350 Kinds of Zombies

28 August 2014 4:40 PM, PDT

Click image to view full sized

Holy hell, look at this you guys. No, really, look at it. This is beautiful. This is like the zombie infographic version of Maria Sibylla Merian’s plant illustrations. It looks ripped from an old anatomy book. Artist Jason Thompson is a bit of a zombie fanatic. When he hears the word zombie, he wants to know more, and not more as in, "Are they from the South?" or "Do they work at the Cdc?" He gets deeper into things.

"As a horror fan, when I hear that something has 'zombies,' I want to know: are they fast zombies or slow zombies? Viral zombies, supernatural zombies, or alien-invasion zombies? Headshot zombies, living zombies, or writhing-severed-limbs zombies? Crazed, unreasonable people who are alive but act 'zombie-like'? Voodoo zombies, cannibal zombies or rotting Etruscan curse zombies?"

For Thompson, zombie isn’t a species of monster, »

Avengers: Age Of Ultron to Completely Overhaul Team Roster?

28 August 2014 4:10 PM, PDT

We all know that the members of the Avengers team from the first movie are all coming back for Avengers: Age of Ultron and that they’ll be augmented by Paul Bettany as The Vision and Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen as the magical-don’t-call-us-mutant brother and sister duo of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. However, a rumor originating from Badass Digest suggests a much bigger sea change is on the horizon. Possible Age of Ultron Spoilers ahead…

.

The very nature and fun of the Avengers team is its revolving door, which allows for greater tonal shifts as the remaining characters evolve. Throughout the comics there have been several major change ups to the roster. As Devin from Badass points out, after only being introduced as a member in Avengers #4, Captain America replaced all of the original team members in Avengers #16. Well, it looks like Cap could be reorganizing the team »
