Even though NBC’s comedy series The Office faltered in the seasons that followed the departure of Steve Carell, one of the most peculiar and entertaining characters to arrive during this time was replacement boss Robert California, played masterfully by James Spader, who went on to become the titular villainous artificially intelligent robot in The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
But what if instead of recording all-new dialogue for the movie, Marvel Studios decided to just use lines delivered by Spader as Robert California? The result is an incredible mash-up where Robert California as Ultron may make the comic book villain a little more menacing that the real thing, mostly because you have no idea what the hell he’s talking about half the time.

Once upon a time, Mondo sold T-shirts in a tiny shop in the Alamo Drafthouse movie theater in Austin, Texas. Now, they’re one of the most popular purveyors of high-end pop culture art on the internet, with their posters and collectibles literally selling out within seconds of going on sale. The company had grown big enough to host its own convention, so lo and behold, MondoCon made its debut in 2014. This year, the con only grew bigger, expanding its size and its offerings. Simply looking in its general direction is enough to drain your wallet.
For a look at every MondoCon 2015 poster and piece of art, as well as thoughts on the con itself, keep on reading!

October 21st 2015 is quickly approaching and we don’t have flying cars or hoverboards, but some of the Back to the Future 2 predictions are beginning to come into reality. Earlier today we told you that Pepsi was going to produce a limited number of Pepsi Perfect bottles, and a Jaws 19 trailer was released by Universal Pictures. While companies like Lexus are trying to produce a real hoverboard, we’re still a ways away from the floating skateboards promised in the Robert Zemeckis-directed sequel.
Well, today is a monumental day in the history of the hoverboard, as the Oxford English Dictionary is finally declaring that “hoverboard” is a word. Also, while we may have to wait a few years for a hoverboard like we saw in the movie, Madrid and Valterra are teaming to release special 30th anniversary officially licensed limited edition skateboards based on the hoverboard designs seen in the film. Hit the jump for more details.

Back at Comic-Con, director J.J. Abrams said that a new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens would be arriving in the fall. That season has arrived, but we’re not sure exactly when the new trailer will arrive. A smart bet might be The Good Dinosaur, but that’s just speculation on my part.
While we wait, check out this clever Star Wars: The Force Awakens Disney trailer mash-up that takes characters and elements from some of the House of Mouse’s classic hand-drawn animated films (and some computer animated too) and puts them in scenes from the second teaser trailer for the forthcoming Star Wars sequel.
