Early concept suits for C-3PO and Darth Vader on the Star Wars set!

Image
Star Wars fans have seen the early concept drawings for their favorite characters but one thing they may not know, I certainly didn't, is that some of these early concept drawings went into the costume development stage! I have never seen these pictures before so I was really excited to come across them. The photos show the concept suits for C-3PO (you can see Anthony Daniels in the suit in the first one) and for Darth Vader.  I happen to really like the Vader suit. It would have been interesting to see that version in the films.

Take a look below and let me know what you think of these suits.


Check out more concept suits, including Darth Vader's, inside the full article!

New Captain America suit seen on set!

Image
Fans can now take their first look at Captain America's new suit that will be used in Captain America: The Winter Soldier! The suit is being worn by Chris Evans' stunt double and as you can see it resembles the suit that Captain America wore in the first film that was set during World War 2. The noticeable big difference on this suit is the lack of the color red! So far it is unknown whether this will be the predominant suit worn throughout the film or if this is just one suit that will be worn for part of the film. Either way it looks pretty cool. What do you think of it?

UPDATE (6-16-13): The suit pictured here is the suit Captain America wore in "The Secret Avengers" comic which actually makes it that much cooler.

Batman takes over some of your favorite movies - Part 2! [video]

Image
Batman is back and he is once again taking over your favorite movie scenes! Take a look at what happens when you replace characters from famous movies with Batman. This time around Batman takes over scenes from When Harry Met Sally, Star Wars, Harry Potter, The Sixth Sense, There's Something About Mary, and Casablanca. What makes these scenes even better is that Batman has Christian Bale's funny, deep Batman voice. If you haven't seen it yet you can watch Part 1 here. Hope you find Part 2 as funny as I did.

Superhero Boot Camp - Throwing a punch with Tifa Lockhart! [video]

Image
Fans dream about what it would be like to be the superheroes (or villains) that they idolize. Although, most often they have to accept that dreaming is as far as they'll get. But not anymore. A great new series titled "Super Hero Bootcamp" will teach you how to do all the amazing things that your comic heroes do. What makes it even better is that it is the heroes (and villains) themselves that will be teaching you! In it's second episode Liz Katz, as Tifa Lockhart from Final Fantasy, will teach you how to throw the perfect punch! Liz teaches you legitimate techniques on how to properly punch, hit an actual target, and break a board with a punch. It may be presented in quite a sexy manner, but still, it's presented.  "Let Final Fantasy's busty beauty, Tifa Lockhart, teach you how to throw the PERFECT PUNCH! Learn where to STRIKE AN ENEMY IN A FIGHT, and how to BREAK BOARDS!!!" Enjoy!

Game of Thrones ska theme! [video]

Image
I've come across many covers to the Game of Thrones them but this one performed by the Pannonia Allstars Ska Orchestra is one of the coolest out there! I am a long time fan of ska music and to hear this great theme played in that style is incredibly fun. The video was created really well and switches from on location shots with some great costumes to studio shots where you see the band performing. I recommend this video to all Game of Thrones and ska/music fans!




Special thanks to my friend, John, for finding this video!

Karen Gillan's character in Guardians of the Galaxy revealed?

Image
Not too long ago it was revealed that former Doctor Who star Karen Gillan would be starring in the upcoming Marvel film Guardians of the Galaxy as a leading female villain but her character was not revealed.

It seems as though this has all changed, however, with a shot of an unidentified Scottish paper that has leaked her character. This has not yet been confirmed but at the moment it looks pretty plausible.



The writing in the newspaper reads:
"Karen Gillan will have to be in good shape for her role as a gold bikini-clad alien villain in the Marvel comics superhero film Guardians of the Galaxy. The former Doctor Who star will play Angela, a flame-haired, sword-wielding bounty hunter. The 25-year old Scot – the Time Lord’s companion Amy Pond – begins filming in London later this summer." This could be some really cool news and who wouldn't mind seeing Karen Gillan in that outfit! The character of Angela is just entering the Marvel universe at the moment and is fresh from…

First poster for The Hobbit - The Desolation of Smaug!

Image
The first teaser poster for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has been released and it looks great!

Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) stands alone in this new poster and it really gives you a chill. TheOneRing.net thinks that Bilbo could be standing in Ravenhill which is a very good possibility. Ravenhill is a remote location beneath the Lonely Mountain which is where the dragon Smaug resides with the dwarves' gold.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13, 2013.
