Last night, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and showrunner Sam Catlin pulled off what was once considered impossible to some filmmakers: they successfully adapted Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon‘s Preacher. Rogen, Goldberg, and Catlin ground the often wacky and wild story without excluding Ennis’ dark sense of humor or the spirit of the characters. The pilot retains some of the series’ key elements while also taking the story in a slightly different–and arguably more somber–direction.
To celebrate AMC’s adaptation, Gallery 1988 will release a new Preacher poster following all of the first season’s 10 episodes. Check out their first Preacher poster below.

Following up the disastrous experience of making Alien 3, director David Fincher made the uncompromising and unforgettable thriller, Se7en. Instead of directing a butchered version of Andrew Kevin Walker‘s hot spec script, Fincher and the film’s stars, Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman, fought to preserve one of the script’s most defining scenes–the ending. Fincher was initially sent an old draft of the script, which included the original ending before it was rewritten. After being informed he received the wrong draft, the director said he’d only make it if they used the original script. And thank God he made that decision, because if he hadn’t made Se7en, perhaps we would’ve gotten the watered down version of Detective Somerset’s (Freeman) grueling story. Worst of all, the filmmaker never would’ve won his MTV movie award.
The original Se7en poster with two floating heads is fine, but the custom Se7en poster featured below, inspired by the artist/fan’s theory, does the great thriller justice.

This summer, the new Ghostbusters movie will feature all-new gear for the paranormal exterminator team played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

Unfortunately, geneticists haven’t figured out how to bring dinosaurs back from extinction just yet. Or perhaps they figured it out awhile ago, but they’re just not telling anybody for feat that someone would actually try to make Jurassic Park, or even Jurassic World, a reality. Instead, people have opted to just take on exotic pets like snakes, turtles, ferrets and more.
Now one fan has decided to combine his love for one of his exotic pets with his love for Steven Spielberg‘s modern classic, and the result is a tiny version of Jurassic Park that a tortoise named Louie calls home. Check out the Jurassic Park tortoise house below. Read More »
