Another day, another variation on the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We’ve seen the original Star Wars trilogy presented like The Force Awakens, and someone else decided to cut footage from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice with the score for the trailer. Now one more has just arrived, and I’m surprised it took this long.
Trek Wars is a mash-up of J.J. Abrams‘ rebooted Star Trek franchise and the director’s tackling of the Star Wars saga with The Force Awakens. And it’s edited in such a way that it makes it feel like the two iconic sci-fi properties are at war with each other. Check it out! Read More »

Halloween is officially over, and soon will begin the onslaught of Christmas, because Thanksgiving decorations are boring. But before we say goodbye to another All Hallows’ Eve, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite 2015 Halloween costumes that were inspired by some of our favorite movies and TV shows.
After the jump, check out a whole slew of Halloween costumes, including some celebrities getting in on the fun, such as Heidi Klum completely (and creepily) transformed into Jessica Rabbit, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as Popeye, Justin Bieber as Jackie Moon and much more. Plus, we’ve got tons of other costumes from fellow cinephiles just like us. Read More »
There’s plenty of people out there who will be dressed up in costumes tonight for Halloween, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find a restaurant that dressed up for the holiday. However, residents of Chicago won’t have such a difficult time finding out.
Anyone who has seen the Eddie Murphy comedy Coming to America knows that the restaurant McDowell’s, which is totally not a ripoff of McDonald’s at all, plays a key part in the movie. And now the restaurant is real (kinda). The hot dog joint known as The Wiener’s Circle (famous for having employees verbally harass each other and the customers late at night) has been given a makeover for the weekend to look like and operate as a McDowell’s franchise.

By now, you’ve probably seen both the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the most recent trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (though a new trailer for the latter is supposed to be coming soon). They’re both great teases for what will be two of the biggest films of 2015 and 2016 respectively. And they’re even more powerful when they join forces.
A new Batman v Superman Force Awakens trailer mash-up featuring footage from the DC Comics face-off set to the powerful music and selected voiceover of the sci-fi saga should please fans of all the franchises involved. Just let it in. Read More »

While Dimension Films continues to try and figure out what they want to do with the Hellraiser franchise, a Hellraiser movie that never was is making its way to screens tonight. Mike Le Han will screen his short film Hellraiser: Origins, originally conceived as a pitch to reboot the film series, as part of the ongoing HollyShorts monthly screening series.
Hellraiser: Origins ultimately didn’t get picked up by Dimension Films. But it did catch the attention of the internet, thanks to its artfully creepy vibe. After the jump, watch the Hellraiser Origins teaser, eyeball some eerie concept art, and find out how you can actually watch the short. Read More »
