Star Wars and Daft Punk combine for "Darth Punk - The Funk Awakens" music video!

Image
Star Wars meets Daft Punk in this incredible video titled "Darth Punk: The Funk Awakens"! This catchy music video was created by Infectious Designer and tells a story that I would really love to see fleshed out.
"One day Vader and Fett will recruit for the the dark side, disguised as an electronic music duo... they will be arresting ears and administering intergalactic rhythm and beats. The Rebels won't stand a chance. This is their music video, featuring 'Dj Gonk'." Below you can watch the video and it's prequel. This is the sort of thing that I can see definitely happening on Coruscant. Make it happen, Disney! Enjoy!

AMC will develop a The Walking Dead one shot special with zombies on a plane.

Image
I did not see this coming. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that AMC is developing a The Walking Dead stand alone special that will feature zombies taking over a commercial airliner while in flight. Yup, zombies on a plane! (Cue up various Samuel L. Jackson jokes!)

This new special will be a half an hour long and will feature a new character that will eventually join The Walking Dead's new companion series Fear the Walking Dead during season 2. AMC plans on debuting this special online to start and then will air it in small segments attached to The Walking Dead during commercial breaks. At the moment, exact story details, character name, and the name of the special are unknown.

This sounds pretty interesting but you can bet there will be plenty of "zombies no a plane" jokes made because of it. Will you be tuning in to see what happens on this flight?

Superman flies over a London park with a little help from a flying drone.

Image
The Man of Steel himself made a visit to London recently and this video shows footage of him flying over Victoria Park!

Barry Craig attached a Superman figure to a Phantom 3 flying camera drone and flew it over the park creating a video that some are calling some of the best Superman footage we have seen in years. It was explained on Reddit that the reason for Superman's movement and not the camera is that the camera is permanently attached to the drone itself while Superman was attached to the landing gear and shook slightly in flight.

The inclusion of John Williams's iconic Superman theme completely made this video. What fun!

Image
With Star Wars: The Force Awakens so close to release it seems that everyone is in the Star Wars spirit, even pandas! The newest trailer released for Dreamworks' Kung Fu Panda 3 is inspired by the Star Wars films and certainly made me smile and laugh.
"When Po's long-lost panda father suddenly reappears, the reunited duo travels to a secret panda paradise to meet scores of hilarious new panda characters. But when the supernatural villain Kai begins to sweep across China defeating all the kung fu masters, Po must do the impossible—learn to train a village full of his fun-loving, clumsy brethren to become the ultimate band of Kung Fu Pandas!"

Honest Trailers - Mad Max: Fury Road!

Image
Screen Junkies is at it again with a new and hilarious Honest Trailer! For their new video, their focus was set on the hugely popular Mad Max: Fury Road.  With jokes about Tom Hardy (Max) hardly having a role, everyone driving gas guzzling cars when gas is scarce, and wasting precious water, viewers will definitely laugh throughout this whole video.
"What a trailer! What a lovely trailer! Strap in for the summer's only high-octane hit directed by a senior citizen - Mad Max: Fury Road! Witness this!" Enjoy!

Man at Arms: Reforged creates Serpentine Silver & Steel swords from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt!

Image
Baltimore Knife and Sword have released a wonderful new video where they step back into the world of video games and forge two amazing swords. In this video they forge the Serpentine Silver and Steel swords from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I've always loved watching these videos and seeing the creation process of such iconic weapons. Baltimore Knife and Sword does an amazing job walking their viewers through the creation of the weapons and there is no doubt that this is a true art. What kind of weapons from film / TV/ video games would you want to see Man at Arms forge?

Possible plot synopsis and villain are revealed for Marvel and Netflix's Luke Cage series!

Image
Marvel and Netflix are close to starting production on their next series Luke Cage. With production nearing it seems as though the plot synopsis for the show has leaked out a little early. This synopsis has not been confirmed by the studio so for the moment it is just a rumor. (Though it seems to fit.)

Show synopsis:

"“Luke Cage is a former gang member who is framed for a crime. In prison, he volunteers for a medical experiment that goes awry, giving him super strength and bulletproof skin. Using his newfound powers, Cage escapes and becomes a hero for hire. His archenemy is Willy Stryker, a former childhood friend from Harlem. The two committed petty crimes together, and both fell for the same woman, Reva Connors, which led to their eventual falling out. It was Stryker who framed Cage for a drug deal that sent him to prison.”"
This synopsis gives fans a good look at what they can expect while revealing the possible villain of the show. Willis Stryker is also known as the M…

Galaxy Quest TV show is officially being developed by Paramount and Amazon!

Image
Rumors had circulated for a while with no real substance but it seems that Paramount Pictures and Amazon Studios are officially developing a TV series based on the 1999 film Galaxy Quest!

The show is still in the very early stages and has not had a pilot green lit yet but this is still very exciting news. The film was fantastic! At the moment there is no news if Paramount and Amazin will reach out to the film's stars, Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, and Daryl Mitchell, but I would imagine that if any return it would not be the full cast.

The premise of the film was that "The cast of a cheesy-yet-endearing Star Trek-like series find themselves abducted and forced to run a real starship by a race of embattled aliens that mistook their show for a documentary." The film was fun and full of laughs and the premise definitely works as a TV series. Dean Parisot, director of the film, returns to direct and executive produce and the film…

First look at Michael Fassbender in his assassin's costume in the Assassin's Creed film!

Image
Take your first look at actor Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch in the upcoming film adaptation Assassin’s Creed.

The new film will be based on the popular video game series but will be telling a new story with an all new character.
"Lynch discovers he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day." Michael Fassbender looks absolutely amazing as the assassin garb that the studio has created for the film and I am very interested to see what they can do with this film. Assassin's Creed has always had some truly amazing stories so I hope that continues with this film.

Assassin's Creed will be in theaters on December 21, 2016.

Finn wields his lightsaber in the new teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens!

Image
Wow! Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new teaser video with some amazing new footage for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. You get a cool new look at Daisy Ridley as Rey with BB-8 and the jaw dropping moment where John Boyega as Finn ignites his lightsaber! This is the first footage of an ignited saber that we have seen except for Kylo Ren's (Adam Driver) lightsaber. (Also take a look at the particular lightsaber that Finn is wielding!) This video is very short but it packs a punch!

There has been an awakening... #StarWars #TheForceAwakens A video posted by Star Wars (@starwars) on Aug 27, 2015 at 10:00am PDT

Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be in theaters on December 18, 2015.

Captain America: Civil War promo art reveals the heroes on the two sides with surprise additions!

Image
Fans have been trying to guess who would side who during the upcoming Marvel film Captain America: Civil War. Who would choose Team Cap and who would choose Team Stark? Though some characters were obvious others were harder to place.

Now with the release of some new concept art pieces fans can take a look at the two sides of the war and see that there are even some surprise additions. From the released art you can see that Team Cap will consist of Captain America, Hawkeye, Ant-Man (look on Hawkeye's shoulder), Sharon Carter (surprise addition!), Falcon, and Bucky Barnes. On Team Stark we have Iron Man, War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther (surprise addition!), and Vision.

It is great to see that Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) will be joining the fight and very interesting to see that Black Panther has chosen a side since it was said that he would enter as a neutral party. The obvious omission of these photos Scarlet Witch and Peter Parker / Spider-Man. Perhaps they aren't s…

All of time and space, except Brooklyn, NY. Doctor Who Symphonic Spectacular at the Barclays Center is canceled.

Image
I have upsetting news for Doctor Who fans in the New York area (or those willing to travel). American fans of Doctor Who were looking forward to the first Doctor Who orchestral event here in the US this October but it appears that the wait will have to continue. The event was to be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on October 7, 2015 and have two performances; one at 3pm and one at 7:30pm. As though sitting in a room listening to your favorite Doctor Who music being performed live by an orchestra wasn't great enough, actress Michelle Gomez (Missy) was going to be present as a guest presenter.

To fans dismay, it has been announced on the Barclays Center website that the performances have been canceld. Unfortunately there has been no explanation of why they were canceled and it is stated on the site that there are no current plans to reschedule the performances. Refunds will be issued from Ticket Master.

This is extremely upsetting news to fans who have been looking forwa…

New, detailed theory for The Karate Kid suggests that Daniel is the real bully of the film!

Image
A new video is beginning to circulate around the internet that may make you rethink the plot to the iconic 1984 film The Karate Kid. The film is set to have Daniel LaRusso (Ralph Macchio) as the big hero over coming the "villain" of the film, Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka). However, J. Matthew Turner sees things a little different and offers his theory in a great video explanation that walks you through the entire film. There is after all two sides to every story.
This new theory states that it was actually Johhny who is the hero of the film and that Daniel is actually a "violent sociopath" who moves to California and becomes a bully for Johnny and his friends. I've never looked at the film from this angle but the theory is actually well thought out and gives plenty of details to back it up. Turner admits that Johnny is a "flawed hero" but according to him there is no mistaking that he is indeed the hero.
Watch the video below to hear the entire the…

LEGO Batman vs Superman 2: Dawn of Just Desserts! Find out what happens after the big fight.

Image
Brick Nerd has created a new Lego video that is sure to make Justice League fans crack up. The big battle from the upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is over and now the members of the Justice League must figure out what comes next. The video catches Batman in a bit of an embarassing situation as various Justice League members show up to the battle (late) and talk amongst themselves. This video gives some funny possible clues as to why certain characters may not make an appearance, or a big one, in Batman v Superman and is well worth watching. Enjoy!

Image
Everybody loves a good hero in a film. Whether it be a superhero of just someone who triumphs over a persoal obsticle and succeeds in the end, viewers love to root for them. However, the hero would not be as compelling without the villain of the story.

This fantastic video compiles together some of the best villains in cinema history and puts forward an amazing tribute. The video is extremely well made and shows off some truly unforgettable "villains". Some of the iconic villains that you'll se are Darth Vader (Star Wars), Michael Corleone (The Godfather), Jack Torrance (The Shining), Drago (Rocky IV),  Col. Hans Landa (Inglourious Basterds), the Great White (Jaws), and so many more! See if your favorite character makes an appearance.

The evolution of Nintendo controllers.

Image
Nintendo has become known for its new innovative ideas and one area of gaming that they have shown this are their console controllers. Every generation brings forward a new idea and a new piece of technology. This great video shows off the various (main) Nintendo controllers throughout Nintendo gaming history. (It does not talk about controllers such as the NES Advantage or the Wii Classic controller for example.)
"The History of Nintendo is defined by its wacky controller designs. From the NES to the WiiU, nearly every new generation of console brought some new way to control their games. The NES had the D-pad, the SNES had shoulder buttons, the N64 had the Z-Trigger, and so on. But why? Why do we find such innovate use of controls in Nintendo and not in Sony or Microsoft? Join Jamin on this week’s episode of Game/Show as he answers the question and looks at the incredible history of Nintendo’s controllers!" There are gamers who look down on Nintendo and their innovative i…

Every single word spoken by a person of color in the The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Image
Dylan Marron has created another great "Every Single Word Spoken By A Person Of Color" video and this time it takes a look at The Lord of the Rings. If you watched the video for the Harry Potter franchise you know that these videos can be shockingly short. (Harry Potter came in at 6 minutes.) However, The Lord of the Rings is blink and you'll miss it short. The video clocks in at just 47 seconds long and is basically orcs and grunts. So much for diversity in Middle Earth. Watch the video below to see for yourself.

Amazing Star Wars infographic shows the new canon timeline through 2019.

Image
Star Wars canon has become a touchy subject for many fans since Disney acquired Lucasfilm. Shortly after the acquisition, Disney and Lucasfilm officially stated that all Star Wars Expanded Universe stories were no longer canon and were now going to be called "Legends". This was decades of books and stories that fans have become very close to that were now pushed aside.

Disney and Lucasfilm then started to re-imagine the canon universe and redefined it with very straight forward announcements. The films of course stayed canon along with Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels TV shows. Also making canon are several new books and comics. Outer Places has created an amazing infographic that breaks down what the canon for the new Star Wars universe is and put it in a wonderful timeline. It is great to have a visual guide like this to see where everything falls on the Star Wars timeline.

Link embraces "Let Me Take A Selfie" in this funny The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker music video.

Image
One of the best features added to The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD on the Wii U was the ability to take a "selfie" with the picto box. Fans had a blast with this feature taking all sorts of hilarious photos of Link around Hyrule. Many of the more funny ones come from some truly dangerous situations like in the middle of a battle with Ganondorf or as enemies are running at you with their weapons raised.

"Queen Hyrule" on YouTube has created a really fun video that shares some fantastic Link selfies while the song "Let Me Take A Selfie" plays in the background. This is great!

ABC developing Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spinoff "Marvel's Most Wanted".

Image
Although it seemed that nothing would come of it in the beginning, rumors circulated that ABC and Marvel were trying to develop a new spinoff show of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.. The news settled down and seemed to be forgotten but now Variety is stirring things back up!

Variety is reporting that ABC is finalizing a deal for a show titled "Marvel's Most Wanted" that will center around S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird (Adrianne Palicki), and Lance Hunter (Nick Blood). These two characters were heavily featured in the second season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and it'll be interesting to see how they carry their own series. Although story details have not yet been released we know that the show will follow the adventure of these two characters.

Marvel's Most Wanted was co-created by Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. producers Jeffrey Bell and Paul Zbyszewsk, who will also co-write the pilot.

At the moment there is no premiere date for the show. Are you excited for the…
