The DC movie universe should already be three years old. We all thought, Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy aside, that Martin Campbell‘s Green Lantern was going to kick things off. It was a no-brainer. Much like Iron Man before him, Green Lantern was a very successful and popular comic character who was fairly well-known to the general public. He also had an everyman origin story which opened up the world to crazy possibilities. Fans surely figured, by 2014, we’d see Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern on screen with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the Flash.
Then the movie opened, and things did not turn out well at all. While some enjoyed the movie, most heralded it as an epic failure on every level. Most importantly, the executives at Warner Bros. pretty much dismissed the film and instead focused on Superman as a new universe kickstarter, leading us to where we are now.
So where does that leave Green Lantern, The DC Comics superhero movie that doesn’t quite fit anywhere? It leaves the movie as the perfect subject of a Screen Junkies Honest Trailer. Check it out below. Read More »

Composer Michael Giacchino has been known to have a little fun with the titles of the songs he creates for movies, but his original motion picture score for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is particularly full of puns. For example, one of the tracks in titled “Close Encounters of the Furred Kind”, while his end credits score is titled “Planet of the End Credits”. Check out the full Dawn of the Planet of the Apes soundtrack listing after the jump. Don’t worry, the track listing it spoiler free (unless of course you consider a track title like “Enough Monkeying Around” a spoiler).

Not long after Frozen was released, Disney put out a video of Elsa’s signature theme “Let It Go” being sung in 25 different languages. And that was only the beginning of the Frozen interpretations and reinterpretations. Since then, we’ve seen a Mr. Freeze version, a Game of Thrones version, a Jimmy Fallon and the Roots version, a Stormtrooper version — you name it.
Now even Pearl Jam is getting in on the game, with Eddie Vedder belting out the tune at a recent concert. Who knew pristine princess Elsa could sound so ’90s grunge? Watch the video after the jump.

North Korea is mad at Seth Rogen and James Franco. The country’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, has denounced their upcoming film, The Interview. Which makes sense, really, given that The Interview is about a would-be journalist (Franco) and his producer (Rogen) who are given the chance to interview the dictator. But a clandestine organization sees an opportunity there, and recruits the pair to assassinate Kim instead. Pretty easy to understand, then, why the leader wouldn’t be all that into the film.

J.J. Abrams is being careful not to give too much away about the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, but there are a few things we can assume just by virtue of the fact that it’s a Star Wars movie. For example, it’s safe to say it won’t look anything like this delightful Star Wars musical parody.
Which is a real shame, because Star Wars: The Musical demonstrates that Disney tunes and lightsaber battles actually go together like peanut butter and bananas: They may not be the most intuitive combination, but they’re a damn good one. After the jump, watch Luke, Han, Leia, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and more sing their way through the plot of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

A live-action adaptation of the popular book series Paddington is one of this year’s big Christmas films. The Weinstein Company released a teaser trailer a few months back but it offered only a glimpse at the talking bear. Now, the first images from the film – which features Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent – have been released. That, in itself, isn’t particularly exciting. What the photos spawned is.
In the photo (seen above) Paddington looks rather ominous, which inspired an online meme called “#CreepyPaddington.” There, people have been photoshopping the bear into various horror movies and the results are pretty hilarious. Check out a bunch of Creepy Paddington images below. Read More »

When the USS Enterprise was hit with an enemy attack, it would rock the entire starship, throwing crew members over equipment and to the floor. Most people know the effect on the old Star Trek television series didn’t have the budget to put the set on a shaker, and the old school movie magic effect was created simply by shaking the camera and have the actors throw themselves around the set as if the room was in sudden movement. Of course, the internet is having fun with this, creating a new reddit subreddit called r/StarTrekStabilized where they put the old television footage through image stabilization software to show you the funny truth behind the filming. Hit the jump to see more Star Trek motion stabilized gif images.
