Lifesize Minas Tirith

Much to the chagrin of fantasy fans, Middle Earth is not a real location. While you can visit certain areas of New Zealand where shooting locations from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies have been turned into tourist attractions, it’s just not the same, and a lot of fans can’t afford to fly over there.

But what if Middle Earth, or part of it, could be realized in the United Kingdom? That’s what a group of J.R.R. Tolkien fans and architects is hoping to do with a new croundfunded project that hopes to build a lifesize Minas Tirith replica somewhere in the south of England. Read More »

Mad Max Adventure Time mash-up

In just over a couple weeks, fans of Mad Max: Fury Road will be able to pick up their own copy of George Miller‘s magnificent action bonanza on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 1st (or you can get it right now on digital download). But for those who aren’t so patient, maybe a new trailer mash-up with the post-apocalyptic sequel will hold you over.

YouTube user Egor Zhgun decided to take characters from the hit show Adventure Time and create a short little animated trailer as if they were the characters in Mad Max: Fury Road. It’s a little bit trippy, not unlike the real movie, or for that matter the TV show, with Finn as Max and Jake as one of the vehicles on the chase, but it’s a fun little creation. Read More »
