Infinity War Gets The Retro Treatment With New Fan-Made Trailer

Only two weeks have passed since Marvel welcomed the arrival of the first Avengers: Infinity War teaser and already, Joe and Anthony Russo’s starry tentpole has racked up a staggering 100 million views on YouTube.

That number continues to climb at an exponential rate, so it’s small wonder why Infinity War now holds the title as the most-watched trailer debut of all time within 24 hours. But YouTube content creator and all-around video wizard Darth Blender has produced a decidedly different take on the Avengers: Infinity War trailer.

Much like Darth Blender’s videos for Justice League, Injustice II and Spider-Man: Homecoming, this latest sizzle reel (see below) gives Infinity War the retro treatment, and is edited in such a way that Reb Brown and Burt Reynolds take point as Iron Man and Captain America.

With Thanos’ arrival imminent, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes begin to fall into place, including Lou Ferrigno’s Hulk,

I know a lot of you are excited about Avengers: Infinity War, so while we wait for it to be released, which seems like a lifetime away, we have a great retro mashup trailer for you to watch! It comes from Darth Blender and it features a mashup of footage from several classic superhero films that were made in the 80s and 90s. I'm sure you'll remember some of these if you were up to speed with what Marvel was doing during this era. Below the video, you'll find a list of all the films that were used and all the characters that the actors are meant to play.

I love that Chuck Norris in The Punisher! It also features Burt Reynolds as Iron Man, David Hasselhoff as Nick Fury, Jean-Claude Van Damme as Winter Soldier, Dennis Quaid as Star-Lord, Eddie Murphy as Falcon and more!

Julia Roberts Recreates Iconic Pretty Woman Scene for Commercial
27 years ago, with just a handful of movie roles to her name, Julia Roberts became America's sweetheart when Pretty Woman debuted in theaters. The iconic actress hasn't stopped working since, even taking her talents to the world of animation, voicing Smurfwillow in this year's animated sequel Smurfs: The Lost Village. Today we have word that the actress is revisiting her iconic role in Pretty Woman with a new commercial, which was filming in West Hollywood, California this week.

The Daily Mail reports that the actress was shooting a commercial for the Italian fashion company Calzedonia, with the actress wearing a black dress and carrying several Calzedonia bags as she walks down the sidewalk. The actress was seen "licking her lips and chatting with the crew" between takes of this commercial, which mirrors a scene from Pretty Woman, which was directed by the iconic Garry Marshall, where she is carrying several

Movie Review – Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four (2015)

Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four, 2015

Written and Directed by Marty Langford

Starring Roger Corman, Alex Hyde-White, Oley Sassone, Michael Bailey Smith, Jay Underwood

Synopsis:

In the 90s, legendary b-movie filmmaker Roger Corman was given the opportunity to produce a film of Marvel’s first family, the Fantastic Four. But after the film was shot and completed on a meager million dollar budget, it was suddenly shelved, and the cast and crew informed that it would never be released. This documentary tells the story of how the film came to be.

In the late 90s and early 2000s, Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four movie was something you’d hear stories about, from time to time. You’d see articles in Wizard Magazine spinning tall tales about a film so bad you couldn’t believe it. The costumes and sets like something out of a highschool play,

Before Hulk Mark Ruffalo Was Almost This Marvel Villain

Before Hulk Mark Ruffalo Was Almost This Marvel Villain
Next fall, Mark Ruffalo's beloved Hulk character will finally return in Thor: Ragnarok, after skipping this summer's Captain America: Civil War. The actor made his Marvel debut as Hulk in 2012's The Avengers, but nearly 20 years prior, the actor almost portrayed another iconic Marvel character, long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe was even formed. A new documentary reveals that the Oscar-nominated actor almost played the nefarious Doctor Doom, although not in the movie you may think.

Yahoo! Movies reports that in the new documentary Doomed: The Untold Story of Roger Corman's The Fantastic Four, Mark Ruffalo auditioned for the Doctor Doom role, which he ultimately lost to Joseph Culp. The documentary also reveals that other well-known actors who were turned down for the movie includes Xena's Rene O'Connor Lost star Titus Welliver and Seinfeld's Patrick Warburton. It probably worked out better for those who didn't land roles in this movie,

Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four, 2015.

Directed by Marty Langford.

Starring Roger Corman, Alex Hyde-White, Joseph Culp and Oley Sassone.

Synopsis:

In 1994, Roger Corman produced a movie adaptation of Marvel’s first ever comic-book, The Fantastic Four, a low budget picture destined never to be released. This is its fascinating story…

Documentaries which shine a light on movie projects that never saw the light of day are increasingly becoming all the rage, now the geeks have inherited the earth, and Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s The Fantastic Four is one of them. If perhaps lacking the snappy title of, say, The Death of Superman Lives which recently came out and told the doomed story of another major comic book movie endeavour that never saw the light of day.

‘Doomed!’ Exclusive Clip: New Documentary Explores Roger Corman’s Ill-Fated ‘Fantastic Four’ Movie

‘Doomed!’ Exclusive Clip: New Documentary Explores Roger Corman’s Ill-Fated ‘Fantastic Four’ Movie
Last year, 20th Century Fox released a “Fantastic Four” reboot directed by Josh Trank. Starring Miles Teller (“Whiplash”), Michael B. Jordan (“Creed”), Kate Mara (“The Martian”), Jamie Bell (“Snowpiercer”), the film was a critical and commercial disaster. The reboot tried to jumpstart the franchise after the original 2005 series underperformed with its 2007 sequel. But in 1994, Bernd Eichinger of Constantin Film and director Roger Corman teamed up to make their own “Fantastic Four” film that never saw the light of day.

‘Phantom of the Opera: The Motion Picture’ (1989) is an oft forgotten, but no less formidable film version of the classic tale

The Phantom of the Opera: The Motion Picture

Written by Gerry O’Hara and Duke Sandefur

Directed by Dwight H. Little

United States, 1989

Nearly 30 years went by since the 1962 Hammer Films production of The Phantom of the Opera until the ghoulish fiend made his way back onto the silver screen. An interesting turning point for the property, if it can be described as such, came in 1986, when arguably the most popular interpretation of the story ever graced not the movie theatres but rather the opera houses. Andrew Lloyd Weber’s sensational stage adaptation was all the craze in the 1980s and is still recognized as a tremendous success and achievement today. As such, it was only natural that filmmakers would want to pounce on the popularity of the title and produce yet another version, to say nothing of the fact that the rights had gone into the public domain by 1989. Enter producer Menahem Golan,

First Details About Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 3, Episode 2 Revealed

See Full Gallery Here

The third season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is finally going to embrace superpowers, as Agent Coulson and Daisy Johnson/Quake look to assemble the Secret Warriors. The team of Inhumans won’t just be battling their own kind though, as it sounds like Asgardians will once again factor into the Marvel and ABC series.

However, rather than an enemy, this member of Thor’s race – who won’t be Jaimie Alexander’s Sif (she’s busy starring in Blindspot) – sounds like he’ll be an ally in the quest to discover where exactly Simmons vanished to at the end of season two.

Review: How to be a Superhero

How to be a Superhero

By Mark Edlitz

Bear Manor Media, 586 pages, $42.95/$29.95

Longtime readers of pop culture magazines have no doubt read interviews with actors who have donned capes, cowls, spandex, and prosthetics to portray heroes and villains drawn from comic books. I certainly was involved in my fair share of such interviews working at Starlog Press and its successors have continued, especially contemporary online outlets which are enjoying a bonanza of options.

Most of those interviews tend to be about the most immediate project with little insight or context about an actor’s association with a media property or being the latest in a long line to play the same role. And certainly, these interviews are sandwiched between news, features, and other topics. So, it’s a bit of a surprise that such a collection has not been attempted before.

Review: The Phantom of the Opera (Blu-ray)

  • DailyDead
Growing up, I was a huge Freddy Krueger fan. I had also become infatuated with Gaston Leroux’s novel, The Phantom of the Opera, which made me a pretty easy mark for Dwight H. Little’s (Halloween 4) 1989 film based on the popular work of fiction. Focusing more on the horror contained within Leroux’s original story, this version is a wickedly ghastly and blood-soaked tale of obsession that allows Robert Englund the room to do what he does best as a performer- go nuts. And after recently checking out the Scream Factory Blu-ray, it was great to see just how well Little’s inventive adaptation has held up over time and how much fun the film still remains, despite its age.

In this Phantom of the Opera, Jill Schoelen portrays an aspiring singer by the name of Christine Day who gets knocked unconscious during an audition, an event that mysteriously
