Last year, fans went crazy for Back to the Future Day on October 21st, 2015, celebrating the day that Doc and Marty go into the future in Back to the future Part II. Now 20th Century Fox is hoping to gin up the same kind of excitement for Alien with a special celebratory day.
On April 26th, fans can celebrate Alien Day, inspired by the planet LV-426 (get it?) from the original Alien. If you’re an Alien fan, this day comes with a slew of cool goodies, contests and screenings, including things like official Reebok shoes inspired by the ones Ripley wears in Aliens, new action figures, and an online trivia contest. Get the details below. Read More »

There’s plenty of impressive cosplay out there, but the reason people pay attention to former Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is because he makes a fun game out of it. Every year for San Diego Comic-Con, Mr. Savage dresses up in some kind of detailed, professionally made costume and challenges fans to find him. Usually he reserves these costumes only for San Diego, the biggest convention in the country, but since he was personally invited to the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic-Con recently, he decided to have some fun.
Adam Savage dressed up as Hellboy, which was pretty cool since the first time he went incognito for Comic-Con was back in 2009, and he also dressed like Hellboy then. However, it would be cheating if he reused the same costume, so you’ll have to see how he changed things up after the jump. See how the impressive Adam Savage Hellboy costume came together after the jump. Read More »

A few years ago, I made a pilgrimage to the original locations where Tobe Hooper shot his 1974 horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and wrote about the experience at ScreenCrush. The home of the cannibalistic Sawyer family has been relocated to Kingsland, Texas, where it is now a quaint restaurant. The original site of the house now overlooks an overpass and the developers are closing in. You can now see a Little Caesar’s and a Crossfit gym from the formerly isolated cemetery where the film begins. And the gas station where the Sawyer family cooks up their victims had fallen into miserable disrepair and looked ready to topple over in a stiff breeze.
But now, that dilapidated gas station in Bastrop, Texas is getting a second chance. Bilbo’s Texas Landmark is being transformed into a horror movie-themed barbecue restaurant and resort.

In addition to the LEGO minifgures that come with the various building block playsets, the toy company has also been selling individual minifigures. However, rather than being able to choose which minifigures you want to buy, you have to take your chances by buying them blind and hope you get one you don’t have yet. Or you can be the person who stands in the aisle and tries to feel the little plastic packages to determine if you’re getting the figure you want.
Anyway, if you’re a Disney fan, you’re probably going to be interested in the latest series of minifigures that will give some of Disney’s most famous animated characters the building block treatment. There’s a series of 18 new LEGO Disney minifigures featuring characters from The Incredibles, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and more. Read More »
No matter what you believe about what happens after we die, you have to admit it would be cool if ghosts existed. However, if that were the case, I’d be really curious to learn just who or what died to give afterlife to the spook known as Slimer in the classic paranormal comedy Ghostbusters. The big, green, floating blob isn’t exactly a person or an nimal, but he loves hot dogs and pretty much any food he can shove into his mouth to fall through his body. And now you can bring him home.
NECA has unveiled a life size Slimer replica that you can bring home later this year, but it’s going to cost you. See the life size Slimer replica after the jump and find out how much it’s going to cost you. Read More »

You might recall that late last year on Back to the Future Day (October 22nd 2015) it was revealed that Nike’s Tinker Hatfield was hard at work making sure at least one of Back to the Future Part II‘s predictions came true. The shoe designer hand-delivered a prototype of self-tying Nike Mags to Back to the Future star Michael J. Fox , with the promise that the real sneakers would be released in spring 2016. Now Nike has released a trailer for their self-lacing sneakers. Watch it now, after the jump.

We’re champions of plenty of projects that pop up over at the LEGO Ideas website. For those who don’t know, it’s a community of LEGO builders who create custom sets that they hope will be supported by community and eventually make it in front of the official LEGO board for approval to become a legitimate set sold in stores. A set needs 10,000 votes to make it in front of the board, but that’s no guarantee of production since the company still has to determine whether they can get the rights to make the set and if there’s even a viable market for it to be sold in.
Thankfully, it has been determined that an Adventure Time LEGO set is a good idea, and it will be put into production. That’s pretty mathematical. Check out the set below! Read More »

Richard Linklater‘s newest film, Everybody Wants Some, recently premiered at the ongoing South by Southwest, and Linklater fans should be pleased to learn the spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused is already a hit with critics.
