But we can imagine what it would be like thanks to this cleverly edited new fan trailer where the two popular sci-fi franchises collide in the most epic way possible.

The Dark Knight Scott Pilgrim vs the World mash-up

Movie mash-ups are a dime a dozen on the web, and sometimes even though they can be good fun, they bring together two movies that fit together pretty easily. But did you ever think that a mash-up of Christopher Nolan‘s gritty, grounded Dark Knight Trilogy and Edgar Wright‘s fantastical, energetic Scott Pilgrim vs the World would make the perfect combo?

The YouTube channel Inventor Headquarters has taken footage from all three films in The Dark Knight Trilogy and spiced them up by editing them in the style of the trailer for Scott Pilgrim vs the World, complete with little animated fighting effects and onomatopoeias. This could be the most fun thing you watch today. Read More »

Guillermo del Toro LACMA

It’s no secret that Guillermo del Toro‘s Bleak House, his personal home (or “man cave” as he calls it) is a treasure trove of movie props, artifacts, art and collectibles inspired by all the fantasy, horror and sci-fi stories that he loves. We’ve seen pieces of it in video tours over the years. There’s even a book called Guillermo del Toro Cabinet of Curiosities: My Notebooks, Collections, and Other Obsessions that takes a look at some of the art that has inspired del Toro’s work over the years, including some of his gorgeous drawings.

Now Guillermo del Toro is bringing his collection of paintings, drawings, maquettes, artifacts, film concept art and more to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) for an exhibition called Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters. The gallery featuring a bunch of del Toro’s goodies opens today provides some insight into del Toro’s creative process, but for those who can’t attend, the filmmaker has posted a ton of photos from the exhibition online for everyone to see.
