Star Fox 64 intro redone with modern CG

Image
One super fan has gone back to Star Fox 64 and recreated the opening intro from the widely popular Nintendo 64 game. The intro was redone using modern computer graphics and looks incredible. I wouldn't mind seeing a mini fan movie that looked entirely like this. Enjoy!

Cute Avengers shows us the team having some fun

Image
Here is a piece of adorable fan art titled "Cute Avengers" that shows us the Avengers team as children riding on a jet plane quarter machine ride that you would find outside of a super market. The drawing was created by Gurihiru and is incredibly well done. Almost has a Super Hero Squad feel to it. Great job!

The Amazing Spider-Man swings into new action packed trailer!

Image
The newest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man steps up the action and web slinging greatness. Fans will be excited to see how much new footage is shown in this trailer and how much Lizard is featured. The Dark Knight Rises may have released a new trailer recently but between the two I would say it is the wall crawler from Queens that comes out on top. Enjoy the newest trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man!

May the 4th be with you! Jedi pets battle it out!

Happy Star Wars Day everyone! To celebrate kick back and check out these short videos of cute pets locked in combat with their lightsabers!

Disney XD has released a great poster for the upcoming Tron: Uprising that shows us our protagonist, Beck. Combine this poster with the recent trailers and the amazing cast of voice actors (Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reubens and the original Tron himself: Bruce Boxleitner) and this show is shaping up to be a hit!

Tron: Uprising
is all set to premiere on Disney XD June 7 but fans will be treated to a half-hour prelude entitled "Beck's Beginning" on May 18.

TARDIS cat fort

Image
I recently showed you how one man had created a cat condo modeled after a AT-AT from Star Wars. It seems that the geek love for cats does not stop there. A user on tardisbuilders.com named astromark posted a cat house that he had created that is modeled after the TARDIS from the British television series Doctor Who. The cat house is built to 1/2 scale of a real TARDIS prop from the show and has a lot of great features inside including it being fully carpeted, a hammok, several sitting/climbing ledges, a crawling tube, and roof top access!  This is truly a home that a cat would love to have. What do you think of this brilliant build?

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 trailer will stun fans!

Image
Fans devoured Call of Duty: Black Ops when it was released and I fully expect the same loving reaction for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. The newest trailer is action packed and absolutely amazing! Black Ops 2 is a direct sequel to the original which is set in a second Cold War during the year 2025. Players of the game will be playing as David Mason, who is the son of Alex Mason, the previous game's hero. The trailer is two minutes long and is extremely well put together. Enjoy!

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will hit stores on November 13, 2012.

Life and Death According to The Legend of Zelda

Image
Here is an interesting look on life and death according to the Nintendo franchise The Legend of Zelda. In this short video you'll see how Link deals with the loss of a loved one. You almost feel bad for laughing at the end. But then again, this video is accurate and at one point we have all thought about how this is true in the games.

Gears of War versus Marriage

Image
As long as there as been gamers, there has been the argument that the gamer zones out and does not and will not listen to their significant other while they are playing. This video challenges that argument and sets the record straight. The gamer is listening. They are just busy.

Tron: Uprising will wow fans with its newest trailer!

Image
If things keeping going the way they are, Tron: Uprising will truly be an amazing show. The animation looks clean and the story seems to be top notch. It will be set between the original 1982 Tron and the 2010 sequel Tron: Legacy and it will fill in the gap of what exactly happened on the Grid between the two installments. The cast of voice actors alone should excite you as Tron: Uprising will have the voices of Elijah Wood, Mandy Moore, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Lance Henriksen, Paul Reubens and the original Tron himself: Bruce Boxleitner.

Tron: Uprising is all set to premiere on Disney XD June 7 but fans will be treated to a half-hour prelude entitled "Beck's Beginning" on May 18.

Here is the official story description for "Beck's Beginning":
"TRON: Uprising, Beck's Beginning," introduces a Beck, a young mechanic living in Argon City, a growing metropolis in a far off corner of the grid that has just been occupied by General Tesler, a henchman …

Latest trailer for The Dark Knight Rises sets the tone

Image
Christopher Nolan has released the third trailer for The Dark Knight Rises and it has left fans divided on how to feel about the movie. On one hand, you have some new footage scattered throughout the trailer which is great. It has a silent tone throughout its entirety that gives the movie an eerie feel which works. But then at the end of this trailer I do not feel overwhelmingly excited to go see the film. Nolan hasn't wowed me in what could be one of his last attempts to win me over before the movie is released. Is it just me or does anybody else feel this way as well? I want to be excited for this film. I'm just finding it hard to see reasons to be. Don't get me wrong, there are a few. But not many. Come on Nolan, wow me!
The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters on July 20, 2012.

The Amazing Spider-Man running time will shock fans!

Image
AMC Theaters has put up the official running time for the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man and it will not be what most fans were expecting or hoping for.

The running time is 1 hour 31 mins. For a big blockbuster film this is exceptionally short as most would expect the time to be near the 2 hour mark.

What do you think of this running time? Is this just too short to tell a whole Spider-Man story?

The Amazing Spider-Man will swing into theaters on July 3, 2012.

Kill zombies while delivering pizza - Apocalypse Pizza Video trailer

Image
When the zombie apocalypse finally happens, people are going to be holding up indoors and attempting to survive as long as they can. So it only makes sense that during this time you'll want to kick back with some food and a good movie. It's not like you're going to go for a jog.

To capture this setting Director Andres Fernandez has created a beautifully animated film entitled Apocalypse Pizza Video. Below you can watch the French trailer that shows you how this delivery team manages to go about their business in the midst of a zombie apocalypse while getting style points for some great zombie kills.

There is currently no release date for the film but rumors and thoughts are suggesting a 2012 release.

Benedict Cumberbatch character confirmed for Star Trek 2!

Image
Since the announcement of Benedict Cumberbatch's involvement in Star Trek 2 and that he would be a villain, fans have been speculating about who he could be. More times than not there was one name in particular that was brought up. But now all the speculation can end and fans can either rejoice or yell (depending on whether or not they like the character). A site by the name of TrekMovie.com has been the first to break the big news.

So who is this big villain?
*Spoilers ahead*

TrekMovie has also confirmed this with a number of sources so we no longer consider it to be a rumor. Khan is back in 2013, however sources indicate that the film is not a rehash of "Space Seed," the original Star Trek episode where Kirk and crew first encounter the genetic superman from the past. While big news, this is actually not a huge surprise. Trek’s new filmmakers have often cited the Christopher Nolan’s Batman series as their model, with the second film The Dark Knight successfully …
