Alien Day Artwork

Don’t let your chest burst open from nerdiness, but it’s officially Alien Day! In honor of LV-426, there are all sorts of celebrations happening today including double feature screenings of Alien and its sequel, releases of new memorabilia, and a handful of new collectible prints from a few different artists.

Today Bottleneck Gallery has three new prints that are going on sale. One of them may be more difficult to get than the other two, but if you’re a fan of artwork by Laurent Durieux, Mark Englert and Chris Skinner.

Plus, Mondo has two new vinyl releases featuring the scores for Prometheus and Aliens. Get a look at the Alien Day artwork and the Mondo vinyl releases after the jump. Read More »

Voltron LEGO

For me, there’s something that’s not only fun but almost relaxing about building a cool vehicle or building from various pop culture worlds out of LEGO pieces. Whether it’s the Ghostbusters firehouse or the Batcave from the 1966 Batman TV series, I just love piecing together a LEGO set. And if you’re a fan of Voltron, you’ll want to support this latest LEGO Ideas proposal.

A new custom Voltron LEGO set not only allows you to build the robot from LEGO bricks, but it allows you to assemble the robot from five individual LEGO lions, just like Voltron. Check out the Voltron LEGO set after the jump. Read More »

Donkey Kong Short Film

Last year, the sci-fi action comedy Pixels brought an 8-bit version of Donkey Kong to the big screen, albeit in a disappointing package directed by Chris Columbus, featuring Adam Sandler and his knucklehead friends, as well as a waste of Peter Dinklage, Michelle Monaghan and Josh Gad. Before that, Donkey Kong got the spotlight in the outstanding documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters.

Now one fan and filmmaker has decided to bring Donkey Kong to life in a different way by creating a live-action short film that imagines a traditional round of the video game as if it played out in real life. Read More »

Green Band Trailer

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we seriously agree with Frank Cross that there might be some Russian vodka poisoned by Chernobyl out there, hit the outback in search of something sinister, insist that voguing is not only a word but also a verb, get all kinds of artistic, and experience the new face of Simple Jack.

When Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele announced the end of their Comedy Central show Key and Peele last year, the official line was that they just wanted to move on to other things. But maybe the real reason for their professional breakup was something much more sinister. Maybe their relationship was irreparably damaged when it turned out one of them is — gasp! — a theater texter, while the other one just wants to be left alone to watch his movies in peace.

Well, probably not. But the two do find themselves hilariously at odds in a new “Don’t Talk” PSA from the Alamo Drafthouse. Which they recorded to promote their new movie together, Keanu. So yes, you can breathe a sigh of relief, they haven’t really turned against each other after all. Watch the Keanu Alamo Drafthouse PSA after the jump.  Read More »

Ecto Cooler Return

Back in February, an image of a new can of Hi-C’s nostalgic drink Ecto Cooler, inspired by the Real Ghostbusters cartoon back in 1987, emerged online. This seemed to be confirmation that the Coca-Cola Company was going to revive the beloved flavor after it was discontinued in 2001. Now an official press release from the soft drink company has revealed when we’ll see Ecto Cooler return to shelves in honor of the new Ghostbusters movie hitting the big screen this summer.

In addition, some new character banners and covers from Empire magazine have arrived, showing off more images of the team played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Read More »
