Blade Runner 2049 Trailer Comparison

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the original sci-fi noir thriller Blade Runner from director Ridley Scott. Therefore, it’s only appropriate that this year also marks the long-anticipated sequel that fans have wanted for decades.

As for what secrets lie in Blade Runner 2049, we don’t know, but we do know that the visuals of the sequel magnificently recreate the production design and art direction of the original film, at least as far as we can tell from the first trailer. If you’d like to see them side-by-side, a new video compares footage from the new trailer with comparable shots from the original film.

Star Trek with TRON Legacy Score

Star Trek: The Motion Picture was quite the disappointment when it hit theaters in 1979, even for the most hardcore Trekkies out there. It’s a sci-fi slog that was nowhere near as satisfying of a leap from TV to film as many had hoped. Thankfully, it was followed by Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan, and that rescued the film franchise and got fans back on board. But there is one thing that makes Star Trek: The Motion Picture a bit more interesting, and that’s a change in the film’s score.

Filmmaker Patrick Collins took the time to edit about 22 minutes of footage from Star Trek: The Motion Picture and enhanced it with Daft Punk’s outstanding, electric score from TRON Legacy. With all of the trippy visuals from the first Star Trek movie, Daft Punk’s score makes the perfect accompaniment.

Star Wars Nothing But Star Wars Trailer

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this year so far, you probably already know that this year marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. Throughout the year there will be a myriad of events and memorabilia commemorating the milestone anniversary, and one famous Los Angeles has one of the most unique offerings that fans will be able to enjoy this year.

Cinefamily hosts plenty of cool events and screenings each year, and rather than just settling for a screening of Star Wars, they decided to put together a video called Star Wars Nothing But Star Wars, a 77-minute assembly of some of the strangest footage with ties to the classic sci-fi saga. There are vintage commercials, fan films, sketches, outtakes and even pornography. You would think the latter would be the most disturbing portion, but it’s actually a quick clip of C-3PO rapping.

Aliens Honest Trailer

This week brings Alien: Covenant to theaters, and fans will get to see how the horror style of the original Alien meshes with the more scientific side of Prometheus that attempts to explain the origin of the monstrous xenomorphs who love killing space colonists. That means there’s no better time for the folks at Screen Junkies to deliver their send-up of James Cameron’s sequel Aliens, which really upped the ante from what Ridley Scott created with the original Alien.

Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer - Saturday Night Live Sean Spicer Sketch Outtakes

Before the most recent episode of Saturday Night Live aired this past weekend, we knew that Melissa McCarthy would bring back her hilarious take on Sean Spicer, despite the fact that the White House press secretary wasn’t around much the preceding week. That’s because McCarthy was spotted in full wardrobe as “Spicey” cruising around the streets of New York City afternoon on a motorized podium.

Now that the sketch has come and gone (it was actually the best of the night in our recap of the episode), Saturday Night Live has provided us with a behind the scenes look at this particular segment of the sketch that was done partially live last Saturday night, and partially pre-recorded on Friday. The video comes with a bunch of alternate takes and outtakes of Melissa McCarthy weaving through traffic and yelling at drivers as only Spicey could.

Rick and Morty Alien Crossover

Alien: Covenant is coming to theaters this week, bringing xenomorphs and new creatures to the big screen who will feast on unsuspecting space explorers. The early buzz on the movie was fairly mixed with critics having varying opinions on how the movie balances the horror and suspense of Alien with the intellectual, expository side of Prometheus. You’ll just have to see it yourself to form your own opinion.

In the meantime, fans can enjoy what will probably be the best piece of promotion for the movie yet: a crossover with Rick and Morty. In this clip, the title characters from the Adult Swim animated series get a distress call from a ship that should look quite familiar to fans who have kept up with the Alien franchise.

Melissa McCarthy as Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live

This weekend brings another episode of Saturday Night Live to NBC with Melissa McCarthy returning as host. She’ll be the fifth woman to join the five-timers club, and hopefully there will be plenty of cameos from some of the other members of the five-timers club to welcome her to the gang.

Beyond that, we know at least one thing that will be happening. Since Melissa McCarthy has been playing Sean Spicer in absolutely hilarious cameo appearances on SNL this season, it’s been assumed that she would reprise the role when hosting the show this weekend, and now we have gotten confirmation in the best way possible. McCarthy was spotted cruising around the streets of New York City, driving around on the White House press room podium we’ve seen her chase down reporters with on the show before.

Dwayne Johnson Stars in Home Alone

Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest stars in the world right now. Not only is he known for invigorating franchises, but he’s just an all-around good guy that everyone seems to want to work with. Dwayne Johnson could probably make any movie he wanted to right now, and he’s probably been offered plenty of projects that he’s turned down.

Now we get to see what some of those projects might have been like thanks to a video from GQ revealing a meeting with his agent where he was pitched sequels to movies like Home Alone and GoodFellas. Needless to say, The Rock could not smell what these movies were cookin’ at all.

Alien Covenant Spacesuit

The set of Alien: Covenant was explored by Adam Savage as part of a sponsored series of videos from the folks at Tested, and today brings another glimpse behind the scenes of the sequel to the prequel that was Prometheus.

This time, the former Mythbusters co-host checks out one of the new Weyland-Yutani space suits that our intrepid cosmic explorers will strap on in the movie. In strapping on the gear for this suit, it’s impressive to see what a sleek and well-constructed piece of wardrobe this suit is. You know it’s good when even someone like Adam Savage, who has built stuff like this for a living, is floored by how flawless the design is.
