Didn’t find that TRON: Legacy Light Cycle you so desperately wanted under the tree this holiday season? Sorry to hear that. You can, however, build your own with nothing more than a color printer and some paper. The Disney Family website has some templates and instructions so that you can fold your way into ownership of Kevin Flynn, Sam Flynn and Clu’s Light Cycles, a Recognizer and more. Check out photos of the finished products and find out where to get instructions after the break. Read More »

Disney and Pixar know they can win an Oscar for Best Animated Film. That’s just too easy. So this year, with that award all but locked up once again, they’ve decided to take on the big boys. They want the Oscar for Best Picture.
To that end, an elaborate Oscar campaign for Toy Story 3 has recently been launched in which characters from the film are portrayed in previous Best Picture winners that had something going against them such as being a different genre, a sequel or a plain old underdog. Films such as The Godfather Part II, West Side Story, On The Waterfront, Shakespeare In Love, The Silence Of The Lambs, Titanic, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King and Forrest Gump will all get a Toy Story makeover in the coming months. And though only two of these ads have surfaced so far, they are so awesome, you’ve got to check them out. We’ve got them after the jump as well as quotes from the Disney brass about Toy Story 3′s chances. Read More »
In the 25 years since the release of Back to the Future, and with the recent release of the comprehensive Blu-ray set, one might think there wasn’t any video from the film series that isn’t, or hasn’t been, readily available. At this point, we’ve even seen Eric Stoltz play Marty Mcfly!
However, until now, no one had seen the full three and a half minute clip reel that runs outside of The Biff Tannen Museum in the alternative 1985 in Back to the Future Part II. Marty does look at it, and the audience gets to see a good portion of it, but who knew how much more there really was or how deep the history of Biff (Tom Wilson) really went? Well, BTTF.com has uncovered a transfer from a VHS that was saved by a fan who had ties to someone working on the film and loaded it online. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Fans of the 1982 Ridley Scott classic Blade Runner have some money to spend. The Astor Theater in Australia, which recently put out some awesome posters for Die Hard and Predator, is screening the film from September 30-October 3 and their partner site Tommy Good had artists Tim Doyle and Godmachine create really sick poster prints for the occasion.
Doyle’s is a 12×25 with “transparent glossy rain effect over the whole thing” and Godmachine’s is a 18×24. The posters won’t go on sale until after October 3, so be sure to sign up at Tommy Good to be alerted. Hit the jump to check out both beautiful prints. Read More »
I’m considering buying a bar of Fight Club soap, just so that when friends/guests use the bathroom in /Film headquarters, they will see the pink bar sitting in the soap dish next to the sink. But if you’re going to go with geek soap, why not go all the way and buy a bar of soap cast in the Han Solo in Carbonite mold from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back?

I’m bunching up two different Cool Stuff posts here, but just as I was about to highlight the two great new Alamo Drafthouse posters for The Wolf Man and The Wolfman I saw this tasty little Soylent Green t-shirt that I thought folks might get a kick out of. And because the shirt is from TeeFury it is available today only — about ten more hours, to be exact. Then again, the two posters might not last much longer than that. Hit the break for details on all of them. Read More »
