How The LEGO Movie should have ended! [video]

How It Should Have Ended has put out a new video that this time focuses on the recent The LEGO Movie. This video is truly a success as it is extremely funny! The same animation style as the movie is used here so it adds another level of connectivity and believability to the video which is great. Once again the folks at HISHE make some great points that make you wonder why this isn't the way that the film actually ended. Enjoy!

The Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary traveling art show hit NYC and it was amazing!

Image
Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary traveling art show exhibit at Gallery 69 in New York City. Not only was I blown away by the amazing pieces of art in the show but it was just plain fun being surrounded by fellow Ghostbusters fans who were also enjoying the art.

The exhibit is being put on by Los Angeles' Gallery 1988 to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the film. About 78 artists have contributed their time and spectacular pieces to the show and many will be on sale during the events. The pieces vary from paintings to prints, and even sculptures.

Prices for the hand painted pieces were a bit steep for me at a couple hundred dollars or more but if you can afford the price they will certainly make your house look better and make your friends jealous. There were also posters and prints available that were much more affordable prices that were equally as amazing as the paintings. I was very excited to pick up a print titled "The Flowers…

Matt Smith cast in Terminator: Genesis!

Image
Terminator: Genesis just made another big casting announcement and it just grabbed the attention of Sci-Fi fans everywhere! Paramount Pictures along with director Alan Taylor have officially announced the casting of Matt Smith, who is best known for his role as the Eleventh Doctor on Doctor Who, in an undisclosed role for the film.

It is being reported that Smith's role will play "a major role that will grow in the second and third films." This is pretty exciting news and fantastic news for the actor himself who has been keeping busy since his departure from Doctor Who

At the moment the cast includes Arnold Schwarzenegger as his signature cyborg role, Emilia Clarke as Sara Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, and Day Okeniyi as Danny Dyson. The cast is really shaping up and is grabbing a lot of serious talent. I can't wait to get more news about this film.
Terminator: Genesis is currently set to hit theaters on July 1, 2015.

Image
Artist Patrick Ballesteros has created this really fun piece of art that has the inhabitants of Westeros watching Daenerys Targaryen play King Joffrey in a game of checkers that very well could decide the fate of the Seven Realms!
"It's all fun and games until someone gets Kinged! This piece is a tiny tribute to all those fun loving kids in King's Landing. Let's just hope this game isn't anyones last." The art is titled "King Me" and is truly a great piece. There is a lot to dissect and discover in it. Ballesteros did an amazing job here.

Everything wrong with Spider-Man 3 in 13 minutes! [video]

I have a love/HATE relationship with Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 film. There are small moments that were done perfectly like the bell tower scene for example. However, there are also moments that were completely awful and those moments are too numerous to list.

Thanks to Cinema Sins newest video fans can watch a hilarious video that points out everything wrong with Spider-Man 3 in 13 minutes! Watch and relive things like the awful Venom storyline and that horrifying dance strut that Peter Parker does down the street. What was that?? I know this may seem like a scary video to watch but trust me that you'll be laughing throughout the entire thing. Enjoy!

RBS' Cosplay Closet - TARDIS Optimus Prime!

Image
Check out this awesome cosplay from Sakuracon that features Optimus Prime from Transformers in his robot form that transforms into the TARDIS from Doctor Who! This is a really fun, clever cosplay that I am sure was a big hit at Sakuracon. Though it may look simple in appearance you can see a lot of hard work went into creating it and the work shows. Especially on that fantastic helmet! Well done!

Charles Xavier explains why he can walk in this new clip for X-Men: Days of Future Past! [video]

Here's the scene you've all been waiting for. Fox has released a new clip from X-Men: Days of Future Past that features a confrontation between Charles Xavier (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender). After going their separate ways at the end of First Class, the once close friends apparently became quite estranged.
In the following clip, the X-Men founders are reunited on a plane with Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Hank McCoy (Nicholas Hoult). The last time Magneto saw Charles, he was on the ground wincing in pain. He'd just been shot in the spine with a deflected bullet (thanks, Moira MacTaggert), and was paralyzed from the waist down.
Much like many fans who've viewed DOFP's trailers up to this point, Magneto is surprised to see Charles standing, let alone walking. Charles explains to him, and us, how he regained feeling in his legs. This leads to a heated argument that opens up some old wounds. Perhaps it's best they get their issues out n…

Image
Fans who follow actor Mark Ruffalo on twitter were treated to a pretty cool bit of news. Mark Ruffalo has been sending out some fun tweets and photos from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron but so far nothing big has been revealed from them. Just a lot of fun tweets talking about the cast and experiences on set.

Ruffalo has revealed that he has been working with actor Andy Serkis (Best known for his work as Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit) to perfect his acting while wearing his motion capture suit for the Hulk.  "Well, I have been working with the great on the big green boy and he is going to be even better then A1." It's great to see that Ruffalo is talking his role of the Hulk seriously and looking to improve his mo-cap skills. And getting tips from one of the best actors to put on the suit is a great way to do it! I can't wait to see Ruffalo's performance as the Hulk in Avengers: Age of Ultron now!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles releases their second trailer! [video]

The second official trailer has been released for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and it is packed with some great new footage. Some of the highlights from this new trailer include a glimpse of Shredder as well as Master Splinter wielding his katana, and a much better look at all four turtles. The one thing that I am waiting on, as I am sure most fans are, is a glimpse of the turtles in a true fight sequence.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will hit theaters on August 8, 2014. 



PS- Interesting design choice with Donatello and his taped up glasses. Not sure if I like it but nothing I can do.

Bungie releases a 7 minute PS4 gameplay trailer for Destiny! [video]

Bungie released a great new Playstation 4 gameplay trailer for the upcoming video game Destiny! The trailer is 7 minutes long but well worth watching.  Destiny is a first person shooter set 700 years into the future during a post-apocalyptic world. The game has been getting mixed reviews from the media but the footage that I have seen looks pretty cool so I would suggest that people try the game out for themselves and see whether or not they enjoy it.

Destiny will hit shelves on September 9, 2014 for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

New Nintendo Direct for Mario Kart 8 is filled with great new information! [video]

Today's Mario Kart 8 Direct from Nintendo was an unexpected surprise! The Direct had a new format which worked well and it delivered a lot of new information about the game. You can watch the Direct below but settle in as the video is 36 minutes long. You'll hear developers talk about anti-gravity races, kart customization, new items, which may be the fastest vehicles, online gameplay, multiplayer modes, and the game's music! It also shares some brief facts about the Mario Kart games through Nintendo's history.

Next developers talk about the new drivers entering the competition which include the Koopalings (Larry, Roy, Iggy, Lemmy, Morton, Wendy, and Ludwig), Baby Rosalina, and Pink Gold Peach. The Koopalings are cool but I would have liked some new additions rather than Baby Rosalina, and Pink Gold Peach (which is a metalic version of the princess).

There was also big news for those that pick up the game! If you buy the game and register it at Club Nintendo before July…

Warner Bros. has 9 additional DC Comics films in the works!

Image
DC Comics fans were excited to finally get the confirmation that Warner Bros. would be creating a Justice League film after the much anticipated "Batman vs Superman" film. Well the good news doesn't stop there! It is now being reported that Warner Bros. has nine different DC Comics film in the works. (After working on the same two characters for the last 36 years it's about time!)
"Warner has now entrusted its core superheroes to “Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder, who will helm “Superman vs. Batman” and then “Justice League.” It also has nine other movies based on DC comics in development." The obvious big question then becomes what are the nine films that could be being developed? It's has already been confirmed that the titles of  Shazam, Metal Men, 100 Bullets, and Fables are already being developed by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema so that is four films right off the top. We've read in recent interviews that a solo Wonder Woman film is curr…

TMNT Style - A jaw dropping fight scene styled after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! [video]

Wow! This video caught me off guard but I am really happy to share this with my readers. This video is a fun interpretation on what a sparring session could look like between the ninja turtles if they were human. The video stars Brendon Huor as Leonardo, Xin Sarith Wuku as Raphael, Jimmy Chhiu as Donatello, Micah Karns as Michelangelo, and Master Simon Rhee as Master Splinter. The four martial artists all wield the weapons of the turtle counterparts and where their colors as well. The really fun part is that the choreography is exceptionally well done and the fighting styles really do reflect the individual turtles. They did such an amazing job on this video. Everyone who is a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or great fight scenes in general needs to watch this.

Queen Elsa's ice palace from Disney's hit movie Frozen was truly a spectacular sight but the real estate agency Movoto wanted to know what exactly that palace was worth. How much would you have to dish out if Queen Elsa decided to sell it? Below is a great infographic that breaks down the palace to size, location, price per square foot, and lastly (and most importantly) the value of the palace. Movoto was even nice enough to convert the price, which is in American dollars, into Norwegian kroners! The final figure may surprise you. Take a look.

Justice League film confirmed and Zack Snyder will direct!

Fans have been screaming it at their computer screens for the last few months but they can now take a breath and let out a laugh. Warner Bros. has officially confirmed that a Justice League movie will follow Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman vs Superman" which is a sequel to Man of Steel. They also confirmed that Zack Snyder will return to direct Justice League.

"Batman vs Superman" will lead into the Justice League film and will serve to introduce several characters of the iconic team. Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, and Gal Gadot are expected to reprise their roles as Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman respectively. With the recent casting of Ray Fisher as Cyborg it may be safe to assume that that character will come back for Justice League as well. 
"It will be a further expansion of this universe,” Silverman said. “Superman vs. Batman will lead into JusticeLeague."At the moment there is no concrete release date set but it has been said that it'll be r…

Scarlet Witch no longer in X-Men: Days of Future Past!

Image
Empire Magazine caught up with director Bryan Singer and got some very interesting new concerning the character of Scarlet Witch in the upcoming film X-Men: Days of Future Past.

We won't be hearing anything from Bryan Singer during the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past press tour due to some damning sexual abuse allegations, but when Empire Magazine caught up with the director not too long ago, he shed some light on the role of Scarlet Witch in the movie. For a start, those of us who assumed that it was the little girl we saw talk for the first time in this TV spot were wrong. "Is that the Scarlet Witch? No, that's his little sister," Singer revealed. "I even had a line which I cut, where Quicksilver's mother says to the little girl, 'Go up and bug your sister,' and the little girl says, 'She bugs me!' You never see the older sister, but it was to imply that there is an older sister for comic bool fans. I ended up cutting it."
