Even though many movies end up being shot on the backlots of studios, there are plenty that end up shooting on location in real places around the world. One photographer has decided to visit the real shooting locations of movies like Halloween, Fight Club, Blade Runner, Wayne’s World, Back to the Future and more, but instead of just shooting a photo of the location without any context, he’s been posting them matched up perfectly with the original shots from the movies.

In 2011, audiences started learning pretty quickly who Chris Evans was when he appeared on the big screen as the title superhero in Captain America: The First Avenger. But before that, he already had a solid career as an actor with roles in the Fantastic Four franchise, as well as other not-so-great movies such as Cellular. Thankfully, there were some good movies like Sunshine, The Losers and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World before that too.
However, just a few years before Chris Evans really launched his big screen career with Not Another Teen Movie in 2001, he was just another kid begging to get a foot into the door of the entertainment industry. And now we have some evidence of where Evans was hoping to start with the cover letter he sent to various companies back in 1998, attempting to get an internship.

The mother-son duo showed up in full orc wardrobe, with Curtis dressed up as an orc shaman and her son Tom as an orc warrior. As you can see, we’re not just talking about throwing on some armor, but full face paint too.

If you’re a hardcore Star Wars fan, there’s probably no way of knowing how many times you’ve seen the original film from 1977. However, we can guarantee that you’ve never seen the movie like this.
An illustrator and graphic novelist from Geneva, Switzerland took the time to adapt Star Wars: A New Hope into a single infographic that measures 123 meters long. It’s really impressive how he took the entire movie and created a scrolling presentation of the story. It includes dialogue, ships, settings and all the important details.

This summer we’ll see John Cho back in action aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise as Hikaru Sulu in Star Trek Beyond. However, he may be known even better for co-leading the comedy trilogy that began with Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle. Beyond that, John Cho has struggled to find a lead role in a major studio film that takes advantage of his skills in both drama and comedy, largely because it’s difficult for Asian-American actors and actresses to land lead roles in Hollywood.
Now one New York artist has launched a little viral campaign to bring attention to that issue by creating Photoshopped posters for some of the biggest blockbusters from the past couple years and putting John Cho in the lead roles. What if John Cho starred in Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation or Jurassic World? Find out below. Read More »

There are an abundance of great baseball movies out there, from Field of Dreams to The Sandlot. But more often than not, ladies who play baseball don’t get the spotlight on the big screen. That’s what makes A League of Their Own so special, and that’s why it was previously selected for preservation in the National Film Registry at the Library of Congress in 2012.
This past weekend, fans of A League of Their Own who happened to be attending the Bentonville Film Festival, which was co-founded by star Geena Davis, received a special treat by seeing a mini-reunion featuring some of the key players from the movie, along with a real member of the AAGPBL who played for the Rockford Peaches, the team portrayed in the film.

Perhaps one of the most divisive talents working today is Lena Dunham. As the creator and star of Girls, she’s been responsible for creating some of the most oblivious, frivolous, petty characters on television. But there’s something that’s still very appealing about the show, and it has captured the attention of the masses, and seems to be the voice of a generation. And that’s likely why she was recruited for a little cameo in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
The bad news is that Lena Dunham ended up on the cutting room floor of the sequel starring Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne and Zac Efron, and we won’t be seeing her when the comedy arrives this summer. Thankfully, she shared a photo from behind the scenes that shows the scene she would have been part of, and it features her dressed as Joan of Arc, tied to a funeral pyre.

I remember the good ol’ days when Rian Johnson would post an image almost every day on his Tumblr, but now that the filmmaker is working on Star Wars Episode VIII we definitely have seen less of his personal photography. He has posted a couple photos from the set of Episode VIII, though, including a shot of cinematographer Steve Yedlin on the Millennium Falcon set after concluding the first week of filming. Now Johnson’s latest shows the return of Lupita Nyong’o‘s Maz Kanata. See the photo and learn more about the possible Maz Kanata Episode 8 return, after the jump.

Sadly, last week brought news that iconic comedian Garry Shandling had passed away suddenly at 66 years old. The longtime stand-up comedian and creator/star of The Larry Sanders Show has influenced some of the top comedians working today, and he counts among his friends some of the best in the business.
As a way of saying goodbye, over three dozen of them gathered as Shandling’s house for one last game of pick-up basketball on the comedian’s home court, something he was very fond of doing while he was alive and well.
