In the video game Deus Ex - Human Revolution, Sarif Industries, a fictitious company, makes a prosthetic device with great potential. The Sun newspaper in Britain thought so, too, failing to realize that it wasn't, in fact, real.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty may be a work of art or a classic short story. But, Ben Stiller is treating it like a Michael Bay treatment in this trailer for his upcoming remake of the Danny Kaye movie. Neither film has anything to do with James Thurber's original short story as much as they like to think, but it doesn't hurt to pretend that they do.
Look, I like Liam Neeson as much as the next guy so, I will see this just because it is him. But, that doesn't stop me from thinking that geezer action heroes are going to end up setting a very bad example for our seniors.
We know, we know, we hear you loud and clear. We know that many of you, ourselves included, aren’t nuts about Batman Vs Superman. In fact, it’s the current fanboy whipping boy, and it’s still a year and a half away from release.
A 250 GB, $299.99 version; a 4 GB with Kinect at $299.99; a $399.99 250 GB and Kinect monstrosity. They each include a select pack of less then stellar games. US retailers will offer a $50 rebate, but Microsoft is going to launch the Xbox One in November, and Sony has the PS4. Microsoft could have done better.
This is the most epic YouTube video... ever... or at least as far as we can find today. Because Todd, a Jedi Master with Etch-a-Sketch, has done a complete recap of Star Wars on the shake and bake drawing pad. There are people who have the time and talent to do this and share it with the rest of us. It is truly a great time to be alive.
Shia has been lauded by Steven Spielberg. He crapped on that. He got big bucks for doing the Transformers movies. He crapped on that. He really isn't much to look at when you consider he has been the love interest of Megan Fox (in real life, too, apparently), Michelle Monaghan, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Sarah Roemer. But, he just got a new trailer for Charlie Countryman, and all may be forgiven.
Yes, we said it, sexy. The trailer for I, Frankenstein leaves no doubt that this ain't grandma's monster. This guy is ripped, and cut, but not because he is made up of body parts. Nope. He is a babe magnet. And if it feels familiar, yes, it is by the same people who gave us Underworld with Kate Beckinsale in a painted on leather onesie. It's a great time to be alive.
Guillermo Del Toro was involved in the making of the Tree House of Horrors XXIV opening sequence for The Simpsons. And boy does it show. This is the best opening sequence in a long, long time, and makes us love Springfield's denizens more than ever. Welcome back, guys!
Chris Pine is on his way to being the biggest star in the Universe. And he gets to play iconic heroes like James Tiberius Kirk, and now, Jack Ryan. Is it fair? Look at him. The man is gorgeous and he runs like a gazelle.
The new full-length trailer is out and it has new footage. Can't wait for this to be out.
Where do we begin to catalog the horribleness of this concept. How about, Aaron Paul is not a leading man in any shape or form? Or, the trailer screams, Nooooo! Not another movie based on a video game with no plot? Epid fail predicted. Press play and unleash hell upon your eyes.
We recently reported here on TGD that while Firefly may not be back on TV any time soon, it will be returning as a graphic novel. This could be a great way to keep the Browncoat army happy, and we’ve been seeing several geek properties, like Pacific Rim, X-Files, an Frascape, that are continuing their stories through graphic novels.
Bong Joon-Ha, the Korean director, has given us Mother, The Host and now, Snowpiercer. The concept art for this movie blew us away. The cast includes Chris Evans, John Hurt, Tidla Swinton, Alison Pill and Octavia Spencer. The most recent trailer makes the far reaching concept look pretty exciting. Could this be the first breakthrough for one of the talents of the recent wave of Korean film maestros?
This could be the best cannibal movie since Silence of the Lambs. We kid you not. Okay, so the trailer has us hooked, but if the movie is half as good, we can put to rest the horror that was The Hills Have Eyes remake and enjoy our census takers with fava beans and nice bottle of Chianti.
Robert Rodriguez made a bucket load of cash on his Spy Kids movies. This ain't anything like them. And yes, that teaser image is Alexa Vega, one of those pesky kids all grown up. Did we mention the fact that Carlos Estevez (Charlie Sheen) plays the President of the United States!
This movie could be a cliche ridden snooze fest where the best bits are in the trailer. Or, it could pick up the ball dropped by The Big Bang Theory and give us a reason to love nerd comedies again.
Come on, geezers! Sylvester Stallone has cornered the market on wishful thinking for the olds. This trailer for Grudge Match has Rocky going up against Raging Bull. These guys are on the wrong side of 60, which is the new 30 apparently. Meaning that these guys are going to live to be 140 and we can look forward to Depends fights in the dining room of the seniors facility (that's a movie treatment I am working on right now).
Fox is promoting its Fall sci-fi actioner, Almost Human, in this video feature. And, guess what? It looks like robot cops on television are going to beat Robocops on the movie screen, judging by a comparison of clips available. It is a J.J. Abrams production so you can expect a lot of lens flare but try not to let that put you off. Almost Human looks like must see TV.
Is this a concert movie of the greatest metal band of all time, or a weird fantasy thing, or just plain weird. Whatever it is, it blows your ear drums away and burns out your eye sockets.
