This years video even features some notable attempts by Stan Winston School & LegacyFX, some of the stars of SyFy’s Heroes of Cosplay television series (Yaya Han, Chloe Dykstra, Riddle), Chris Hardwick of Nerdist and more.

King Kong image - Skull Island movie adaptation

Legendary Pictures attempted to surprise the crowd at 2014 Comic Con with a teaser trailer announcing a King Kong-set film project Skull Island. We were given very little information about the project, but Monday we learned more about the writer developing the project and that Legendary has offered the movie to Attack the Block director Joe Cornish. But we still don’t know what the film is about. Is the Skull Island movie adaptation based on a King Kong novel, or an original tale set in the King Kong universe? Or is it possible that Legendary Pictures is working hand in hand with Universal Studios theme parks on making a movie based on a theme park ride that hasn’t even been constructed? I’ll explore both of these questions and more, after the jump.

Joey Spiotto Storytime

There’s just something wonderful about seeing your favorite pop culture properties reimagined as something unimaginable. Artist Joey Spiotto does that really well. In previous years, he’s become well-known for turning pop culture properties like Firefly, The Avengers and Lost into eye-catching album covers. Now he’s taking that tone and turning it into a full gallery exhibit by adapting properties like Breaking Bad, Pulp Fiction, Godzilla, Guardians of the Galaxy, A Clockwork Orange and others into children’s books reminiscent of Random House’s popular “Little Golden Books” series.

The exhibit is called Storytime: A Little Gallery Show and it opens August 1 at Gallery 1988 East in Los Angeles, CA. It consists of 50 properties from movies, TV, music and video games put through Spiotto’s unique children’s filter. Below, we’ve got a bunch of examples from the Joey Spiotto Gallery 1988 show.

Simpsons Hollywood Bowl

When you’ve done 500 plus episodes over multiple decades, the backlog of content is staggering. In the case of The Simpsons, that doesn’t only mean hilarious jokes, animation cells and Emmy awards. It means music too. While most people associate the show’s music only with Danny Elfman‘s iconic theme, every week has lots of other music and that music is finally getting spotlighted.

The Simpsons Take the Bowl is live musical performance taking place for three nights this September at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, CA. Hank Azaria will host an evening of music, cameos and never before seen footage. Read more about the Simpsons Hollywood Bowl performance below. Read More »

elastigirl's face falls off

A tourist shot footage of Elastigirl tripping and suffering the mishap of having her costume face fall off in front of a crowd of children at Disney World’s Magic Kingdom The Incredibles Super Dance Party Show. Instead of being shocked, onlooking kids laughed at the accident. I’m sure these kind of accidents happen all the time around the Disney theme parks (as with any time of regular show). Its always interesting to see how the Disney castmembers quickly respond and fix the issues as they arise. You can watch a video of when Elastigirl’s face falls off embedded after the jump.
