New trailer edit turns the Ghostbusters trailer into the 1997 Extreme Ghostbusters cartoon.

Image
Fan reactions to yesterday's Ghostbusters trailer for the 2016 reboot is extremely mixed. There are people who are completely on board and those taking to the internet to scream about their childhoods being torn apart.

One dedicated fan, Mike Colver, decided to make his own edited cut of the trailer that uses footage from the trailer, teaser trailer, and the hidden viral video to make it look like the cartoon into to the Extreme Ghostbusters. Extreme Ghostbusters was an animated series that aired for a single season in 1997 and was a sequel series to the original series The Real Ghostbusters in 1986. The result is perfect. I've included both the trailer recut and the original intro to Extreme Ghostbusters below.

Rebels Recon 2.17 takes you behind the scenes of the Star Wars Rebels episode "Shroud of Darkness".

Image
Let's head behind the scenes of the hit Disney show Star Wars Rebels and get some great inside information concerning the season 2 episode "Shroud of Darkness".
"In this installment of Rebels Recon, StarWars.com goes inside the episode “Shroud of Darkness,” with creator interviews and more.  In “Shroud of Darkness,” Ahsoka, Kanan and Ezra travel to the Lothal Jedi Temple and each have a unique experience. One of the most shocking twists of the episode features the Grand Inquisitor's return as a Jedi Temple Guard. Was it true, or only the Jedi's imagination? Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo confirms that the Inquisitors do have Jedi roots. Executive producer Henry Gilroy adds, "The vision of the Grand Inquisitor is entirely motivated by Yoda who's basically letting Kanan know he's a Jedi Knight." Executive Producer Dave Filoni touches on what it was like to see Matt Lanter reprise his role as Anakin Skywalker alongside Ashley Eckst…

The first photo of the new Power Rangers from the upcoming reboot film has been released thanks to Entertainment Weekly. Taking on the role of the new Rangers are Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, and Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger.

Entertainment Weekly spoke to director Dean Israelite about the new suits that the Power Rangers will wear and found out that they are "really modern, edgy, badass, aspirational quality". These new suits come to us from Weta Workshop (The Lord of the Rings) so you know they will be great.
"“We’ve really pushed ourselves to make them feel different from any other superhero costume that’s out there. One key that’s different to the Power Ranger suits is that they’re not really suits that people get into. They’re suits that morph onto our kid…

Today is all about Ghostbusters! This morning the new trailer for the upcoming film was released and during the trailer you see a white board filled with math equations. Eagle-eyed fans spotted something curious at the top of the board and it turned out to be a promotional website that when visited has all sorts of great stuff.

On the site were a few pieces of concept art, blueprints, and a featurette titled "Busting Ghosts With Science" that takes a look at how the ghostbusting team built their new proton packs. It's a pretty cool, and short, video that fans should really enjoy.

Game of Thrones season 5 Blu-ray exclusive "Robert's Rebellion" shows the fall of House Targaryen.

Image
If you are a Game of Thrones fan then this is a must watch video. It is an animated video from the Season 5 Blu-Ray and focuses on the fall of House Targaryen.

Sir Barristan Selmy recalls his role in "Robert's Rebellion" and how the events of the rebellion u folded. It is really quite interesting and makes me wish they touched on this in the actual show.
"An exclusive look at one of the Histories and Lore included in the GAME OF THRONES Season 5 Bluray, listen and watch as Ser Barristan Selmy (Ian McElhinney) recounts his perspective on the events leading up to and concluding Robert's Rebellion."

A new team defends New York from ghosts in the first official Ghostbusters trailer!

Image
The much anticipated trailer for the new Ghostbusters film has been released!

I like how this new trailer acknowledges the original film (though the film itself will not). I still do not know how I feel about this film but I am definitely interested. The effects used for the ghosts looks cool but all the ghosts look the same so I'm hoping there's variety we haven't seen yet. Another change is that it looks like this film will use a more obvious style of comedy than the original. There is a nod to the Librarian Ghost as well as Slimer's big reveal. I did smile when hearing the original theme being played here and there throughout the trailer. They play with your nostalgia while still offering something new. I also have to say that the new ghostbusting equipment looks very interesting in action (in a good way). I also like that we see a wide range of ghosts in this trailer.

I have to let this trailer sink in and watch it again but I can say that I enjoyed it and I know …

Animusic's Pipe Dream comes to life with the Wintergatan Marble Machine! See it in action and hear it's beautiful song!

Image
There are plenty of music video spiraling around the internet but I have found one that is truly beautiful. The Wintergatan Marble Machine was built by Swedish musician Martin Molin and filmed by Hannes Knutsson. This hand made machine acts as a kick drum, bass, vibraphone and other musical instruments that are all powered by a hand crank and 2,000 marbles. All together this machine has 3,000 parts! As well as building the machine, Martin Molin also composed the music being played by it. This machine is truly awe inspiring and must be seen in action to truly be appreciated.

The amazing thing about this machine is that it shares an uncanny resemblance to a music video that I used to love watching in the late 90's from a company called Animusic. (I highly recommend buying their DVDs. The music videos are beautiful.) I included the Animusic video titled "Pipe Dream" at the bottom of this post to show you what it looks like and how the Wintergatan Marble Machine was inspire…

Image
Music is a truly beautiful thing and sometimes two different styles or pieces of music can be fused together for a beautiful and new sound. Violinist Jason Yang has created a video where he combines the themes of The Walking Dead and Terminator. The Terminator theme has always been a favorite of mine so this is really cool. The video starts off with each being performed solo and then ate combined together. Enjoy!
