This weekend brings Disney’s latest live-action remake to the big screen in the form of The Jungle Book, a new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic novel of the same name. The early buzz on the movie is that it’s a mesmerizing, visual spectacle and a fantastic update of the tale that pretty much everyone knows, and there’s already talk of a sequel with director Jon Favreau likely coming back as director.
But before you go see the new take on The Jungle Book, check out the Honest Trailer poking fun at the animated adaptation that Disney made back in 1967. You might have forgotten that Mowgli is kind of a brat in Disney’s musical adventure, but the jungle is a swinging jazz club that makes it all better. Read More »

Just before Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters, we learned that Bill Hader helped bring BB-8 to life by providing real dialogue for the droid that eventually was just turned into various bleeps and bloops that the little ball droid made. Hader was credited as a vocal consultant along with Parks and Recreation‘s Ben Schwartz, who opened up about the process with a little more details in a Reddit AMA video back in February. And with that knowledge, one fan decided to have some fun with footage of BB-8 from The Force Awakens.
For those who may not know, Ben Schwartz played a hilarious character on Parks and Recreation named Jean-Ralphio. And friend of the site Jesse Carp has taken some of his dialogue and given it to BB-8 in the scene when Rey saves the droid from being turned into scarps by the scavenger Teedo. Believe it or not, it makes BB-8 even better. Read More »
Perhaps the most intriguing part of Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the vision that Rey (Daisy Ridley) has when she touches Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber after the Force beckons her to it in the basement of Maz Kanata’s castle. It raised many questions, most of which we still don’t know the answer to. Hopefully that will change in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
But what if Rey’s vision was less of a vision and more of a nightmare? Sure, the vision itself has some disorienting and terrifying moments for Rey herself, but what if it was a nightmare for the audience as well? That’s exactly what one has done by having some of the more cringeworthy parts of the prequels invade the vision. It’s pretty scary.

It’s no secret Pixar loves slipping Easter eggs into its movies, and sometimes the animation studio gets so eager they even sneak in references to movies that haven’t even opened yet. Case in point: while Hank the octopus, voiced by Ed O’Neill, is billed as one of the “new” characters of Finding Dory, he’s really been hiding in plain sight for years. As a new video reveals, Hank’s actually been part of the Pixar family going all the way back to Toy Story in 1995. Really!
… Except no, not really. As you’ve probably figured out by now, this “epic” Finding Dory Easter egg is really just an April Fool’s prank. Still, the video does contain some (genuine) new footage featuring Hank and Dory, not to mention a little clip of O’Neill and director Andrew Stanton being just plain adorable. So if that sounds like the kind of thing you’d be interested in, swim with us below the jump. Read More »

This weekend, Ben Affleck makes his debut as the Dark Knight in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But as fans of the actor already know, he’s played Superman once before, too, sort of: in the 2006 drama Hollywoodland, he plays actor George Reeves, who portrayed the Man of Steel in the 1950s TV series Adventures of Superman.
Naturally, then it was only a matter of time the internet thought to mash up the two performances and pit Affleck’s Batman against Affleck’s own Superman. Watch the Batman v Superman trailer parody Affleck v Affleck after the jump. Read More »
