Altered Reality Photo Series by François Dourlen

8 hours ago

Professor of history François Dourlen has taken up the hobby of photographing his phone with something from movies, TV, and video games on the screen. What's on the screen in some way ties into the background, making for a kind of alternate reality in which these pop culture icons are part of the real world.

Dourlen (via Bored Panda) on how he was inspired to start taking these photographs:

Like many people, I always imagine weird things when I walk in the street, when I work or when I’m home. But I never found a good way to tell what goes through my head. One day, wanting to make a joke with friends, I replaced a statue of Napoleon in Cherbourg with a picture of my little pony in my phone and took a picture. I had so much fun that I put it on facebook, people immediately liked. »

Jurassic World - Chris Pratt Strikes a Pose with His Raptor Frenemy

8 hours ago

In the first full trailer for Jurassic World, Chris Pratt isn’t just running around looking equal parts Han Solo and Indiana Jones. It also appears that he has those deadly velociraptors trained like a pack of hunting-dogs. In an interview done shortly after the release of the trailer, director Colin Trevorrow clarified that Pratt’s character, Owen, and the raptors “aren’t friends,” adding, “These animals are nasty and dangerous and they’ll bite your head off if you make the wrong move.” So apparently the raptors aren’t quite domesticated, but that raptor looks awfully cozy with Owen in this image Trevorrow tweeted with the following message:

“Happy Holidays from the editing room. Do not try this at home.”

We’ll find out exactly how well-trained these deadly creatures are when Jurassic World hits theaters June 12, 2015.

Smaug and Toothless Trade Insults in This 10-Panel Comic

9 hours ago

Last week, Smaug went on the Colbert Report to promote The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which opens today. During the interview, it was brought up that not all dragons get bad press and that Toothless, from How to Train Your Dragon, is a hero. Smaug proceeded to tear down Toothless, retorting, “Toothless? More like ball less!” In this comic by Tumblr artist Tapestryclouds, Smaug continues his smack talking, only this time Toothless is there to dish it right back. Smaug’s scales are indeed impervious to most weapons, but he is thin-skinned when it comes to insults.

Andy Serkis Clarifies Rumors for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

10 hours ago

Official information about Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been hard to come by, leaving every scrap of a rumor to be analyzed and added to an ever growing pile. Andy Serkis, in an interview with EW, clears up a few rumors while still keeping the mystery alive. Serkis is a smart actor and has been really good about not leaking details on previous films.

He'll be playing only one character:

Previous reports that he was playing multiple roles are, according to Serkis, “Not true at all." Adding, "I can say I only play one character."

When asked if he is playing a motion capture character, he says, “I can’t say a single thing about that. I’m sorry! [Massive Grin] These things will all come out in the fullness of time, I promise."

Details on The Voice:

Serkis confirmed quickly after the teaser trailer was released that he is the narrator. »

Honest Game Trailer for League Of Legends

11 hours ago

Smosh Games targets the video game League of Legends and fires off the insults for their latest Honest Game Trailer. This is an extremely popular multiplayer online battle arena game that was developed and published by Riot Games. I've never played it, but it looks pretty damn entertaining! This Honest Trailer sold me on it! I'm not sure if that's what these videos are supposed to do, but it happened. 

From the studio, whose name would have you believe it made more than one game, comes one of the best games of all time that your parents didn't have to buy for you - League of Legends. »

Sony Officially Scraps The Interview

11 hours ago

Sony Pictures has officially scrapped James Franco and Seth Rogen's comedy The Interview, and they will not be releasing it on December 25th. The decision comes after the hackers threatened to blow up movie theaters if the film was released. 

Sony has gone through a whirlwind these past couple of weeks, and they finally decided to back off and let the hackers have their way. I'm not a fan of anyone screwing around with our right to freedom of speech and expression, but I understand why Sony made this decision, and I support their decision. It's just so weird and it sucks that all of this happened over a harmless movie to entertain audiences.

The question is, will the hackers finally back off of Sony and let them put their business back together? Here's the full statement that the studio released:

In light of the decision by the majority »

Pyro — Shoot Fireballs From Your Wrist

12 hours ago

How often have you wanted to shoot a fireball from your hands? If you're like me, the answer is everyday, all day.

Pyro is a wrist-worn device by Ellusionist.com that's intended for magicians/illusionists. After 2 years of development it's nearly here. At $174, the device is far from cheap but, honestly, would you want it to be? Able to shoot up to four fireballs with a controllable range up to 10 feet. In skilled hands the Pyro could be a crazy thing to behold. I'm pretty sure more daring cosplay artists are looking at how to incorporate this into Iron Man, Ryu, and Goku cosplay.

The Pyro is activated using a remote that works from up to 30 feet away. It's super discrete, rugged, and reliable. It uses flash cotton and paper for the fireballs which is pretty standard material for this kind of illusion.

The site currently says that pre-orders are expected to ship December 22nd. »

New Information on The Graysons' Appearance on Gotham

13 hours ago

Some new information has surfaced on the inclusion of the Grayson's in Gotham. A few weeks ago we learned that Robin's parents would appear this season, and now we have some details.

The news comes from TV Line, who says a casting call has gone out to agencies for John Grayson and Mary Lloyd. They are described as "teenage circus performers who will figure into Episode 16 and hint at the origin of a certain boy Wonder." Showrunner Bruno Heller previously had this to say about it:

“We’re going to do a prenatal origin story for Robin down the line. There are no MRIs involved. There’s an episode coming up where we learn how Robin’s parents got together.”

They go on to reveal that in Episode 17, two recurring characters will be introduced that include "Dr. Dulmacher (aka another Dollmaker), this time conceived as a mad European scientist, and Reggie Payne, »

6 Wacky Marvel Comics Crossovers

14 hours ago

Over the years, Marvel has done a ton of crossover comics, one of the most recent was The Avengers and Attack on Titan. It was short, but it was really freakin' cool. Affter doing a little research I came across six Marvel crossover comics that were ridiculous. The comic book publisher sure has some doozies over the years. Most of them offer some good, fun entertainment, while others simply sucked. Check out the list below:

Eminem/Punisher - Kill You

In 2009, Frank Castle and Marshall Mathers team up after the Punisher kills a bunch of Eminem’s bodyguards over a misunderstanding. After a concert, Punisher stops the limo from leaving so Slim-Shady and his entourage get out angrily to make him get out of the way. So what does Punisher do? He just automatically opens fire, killing many of them. After Eminem pistol whips Punisher, and an assassin named Barracuda »

Joss Whedon Discusses Various Avengers: Age Of Ultron Elements

15 hours ago

It looks like Joss Whedon is once again going to blow Marvel fans away with the Avengers. The footage we've seen from Avengers: Age of Ultron looks insanely cool, but there's still so much more that has yet to be revealed. There are a bunch of interviews with the director from the set of the film that have surfaced, and in them he discusses a lot of different aspects about the movie, including the fact that he initially didn't want to do it! He explained to /Film,

"I didn’t actually want to make the film necessarily. I was ragged from the first one, and so I just turned off my brain. I was like, do not think of cool ideas for the next one. Just get through this. But after a few months when they talked about, um… This is now something that makes sense in my life; do I have anything to say? »

Tim Burton Explains Why He Doesn’t Like Marvel Superhero Movies

16 hours ago

Tim Burton was one of the first director to venture into superhero movie territory, and he did a great job! I love what he did with Batman and Batman Returns, and with those films he kind of laid the foundation for what was to come. During an interview with Yahoo, he was asked about what he thought of the movies Marvel was making, and he didn’t seem very impressed.

“How many times can you say ‘you’re wearing a funny costume’ with the tights and stuff? That’s been going on for 20 years now. Yes, we all know that superheroes are damaged individuals. Maybe we need to see a happy superhero?”

With a statement like that, I’m not even sure if he’s seen any of the Marvel movies. No one ever really says “you’re wearing a funny costume,” in those movies. As for the whole happy superhero comment, »

2 Hobbit Featurettes - “Christopher Lee Returns” and “Leaving Middle Earth”

16 hours ago

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies opens today, and I hope you go out and see it, because it's freakin' awesome! Two new featurettes have been released that you can check out of you want. The first is an IMAX featurette that includes Peter Jackson and the cast of the films reflecting on what they are going to miss most about Middle Earth. I know that as a fan of the saga, I’m going to miss the incredible journey that has been told in these stories. The second video focuses on 92-year old Christopher Lee returning to reprise his role, and damn, he sure does have a great scene in this movie! 

After The Lord of the Rings ended, I knew there was a good chance we would be able to return to Middle Earth again with The Hobbit. After this, though, that’s probably going to be it. »

2 Into The Woods Clips - "Magic Beans" and "Go to the Wood"

17 hours ago

Disney has released two new clips for their upcoming fairytale musical Into the Woods. The first clip features the Witch (Meryl Streep) telling the Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) what they need to do in order to get their curse reversed. The second clip features the Baker and his wife exchanging the magic beans for Jack’s (Daniel Huttlestone) cow. The movie seems to be getting decent reviews, and I'm looking forward to taking my kids to go see it.

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their »

Title and Casting Details on the Cancelled Ghostbusters 3 Project

18 hours ago

Before Paul Feig came around to reboot the Ghostbusters franchise for a new generation and launch a whole new franchise, there was a direct sequel to the original films that was in development for years. That project will never happen at this point, but some details have surfaced on what that sequel would have entailed.

Screenwriter Etan Cohen (Men In Black 3) completed a second Ghostbusters 3 draft. The film's producer, Ivan Reitman, who was attached to direct the film at the time, sent an email to Sony Pictures Chairman Amy Pascal that contained the second draft, and it reveals the title of the movie and his plan for the cast.

There's not much revealed about the plot, but it would have centered on Ray Stanz (Dan Aykroyd), Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis), and Winston Zeddemore (Ernie Hudson) passing the franchise off to a younger generation of Ghostbusters. Sadly, a month after this email was sent, »

Possible Spoilers Ahead — You've Been Warned

I downloaded the Pdf of the Lego Germany catalog last night. It's 180mb and has over 160 pages. I extracted the images unencumbered with text. With a translation into English via io9, these Lego sets give us some clues about how sequences we've seen in the trailer might be playing out.

Burglary At The Hydra Fortress

Looks like Captain America steals Loki's staff from Hydra. Must be the place where Cap was kicking the door in.

Duel With Hydra

I have a feeling that this is part of the burglary of Hydra.

Raid On The Avengers Tower

Early Ultron drones have Loki's staff. Perhaps the presence of the stolen staff corrupts Ultron, making him evil.

The Avengers Quinjet Chase

The Vision in minifig form working with the rest of the team.

Iron Man vs Ultron

Despite the name of the Lego set, »
