The new film Terminator: Genisys appears to create a whole new parallel timeline connected to the first couple films in the series, by doing even more mucking about with time travel than those two films did. We know that the new film dramatically recontextualizes major characters from the first film, but just how does the chronology of the series now fit together? And exactly how many versions of Arnold Schwarzenegger have now been sent back in time? Check out a fan edit of the film’s first trailer to explore (and heavily mock) the Terminator Genisys paradox.

This week’s Saturday Night Live host was Martin Freeman, star of The Hobbit trilogy, AMC’s Fargo television series and BBC’s Sherlock. One of the best sketches on Saturday night involved Freeman returning to The Office, the 2001 BBC television comedy series which spawned the NBC hit. But Freeman did not reprise his role as Tim Canterbury, instead playing his The Hobbit starring role as Bilbo Baggins in a sketch which imagines what The Office would have been like featuring the characters of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth saga. Watch the SNL Office Hobbit mash-up sketch embedded after the jump.

The first Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer has been the subject of intense scrutiny over the past week, inspiring all manner of detailed analysis, debate, parody and homage. It was only a matter of time before Saturday Night Live offered their own unique take on the Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer. Last night they did just that, with the help of guest host James Franco.

This week filmmaker Christopher Nolan appeared on The Colbert Report. I wanted to spotlight this interview because Christopher Nolan usually doesn’t do fun talk shows like Colbert, and Stephen gets the almost-always-serious Nolan to swear and talk on a more down to earth level. I know that Nolan is very picky about which outlets he does interviews with (rumor has it he hates online blogs, which is why you almost never see him talk 1:1 with anything but print and television press) so for him to accept an interview with Stephen Colbert likely means he’s watched the show (he tells Colbert he’s also a big fan of his in the quick intro). My favorite moment comes when Colbert takes Nolan to task for making him think in a big blockbuster space epic, asking “Guardians of the Galaxy didn’t make me do that… why do you want to make me think? Why can’t you have shit just blow up?” Watch the full Christopher Nolan Colbert Report Interview embedded after the jump.

Lego, George Lucas and lens flairs were only the beginning. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer has only been out for three full days and already the parodies and reactions are impossible to keep up with. As you read this, someone is creating something new – and likely funny – about the trailer. Case in point, multiple new parodies have hit the web. There’s one poking fun at the fact it’s the first Disney film, two taking The Phantom Menace and retrofitting it to this style, a Spaceballs version as well as The Empire Strikes Back. Watch a bunch of new Force Awakens trailer parodies below. Read More »
If you’re like me, you’ve watched the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer several dozen times and will continue to do so until the next one comes out. By now, you may know every second of the trailer just as well as the original trilogy and you’d be open to seeing something new. Like clockwork, the Internet obliges.
Several different parodies of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer have appeared online but two stand out above the rest. First is a super impressive shot by shot recreation in Lego. Second is J.J. Abrams lens flare edition. And third is a “George Lucas Special Edition” version that, much like the first trailer, brought tears to my eyes. This time though it wasn’t nostalgia, it was because I was laughing so hard. Read More »

Marvel Comics is having a little fun at the expense of the cast and crew of the new Fantastic Four movie. In the new issue of the current Punisher series, #12, there are frames of three Hollywood actors discussing a new movie by a director with the last name “Trang.” They look incredibly similar to Miles Teller, Jamie Bell and Kate Mara. Apparently their friend Michael, who plays a character named Johnny, is running late. And then their building explodes.
