Taran Killam - SNL Hard Knocks Parody

Not too long ago, we got the surprising and disappointing news that Taran Killam would be leaving Saturday Night Live along with fellow cast member Jay Pharoah and featured played Jon Rudnitsky. The latter wasn’t a surprising removal after the comedian failed to make an impact in his first season, but the departure of Killam and Pharoah will likely be felt by fans when the show returns for its 42nd season at the beginning of October.

As we get closer to the start of the new season, it’s time for the former cast members to clean our their office and bid farewell to the place they’ve worked long hours for several years. And since Killam didn’t get a grand send-off on the air, he decided to say goodbye in a different way. In what is basically one final Saturday Night Live sketch, Killam has given himself a mini-episode of the HBO sports documentary program Hard Knocks, following his final days at 30 Rockefeller Center.

The Blair Witch Project Honest Trailer

With a surprise sequel coming next week, there’s no better time to revisit The Blair Witch Project by way of an Honest Trailer. This is the movie that basically invented viral marketing online, and created the found footage horror subgenre way before Paranormal Activity debuted. However, since it’s an amateur production made to be an amateur production, there’s only so much that the folks at Screen Junkies can make fun of this time. Still, there are some chuckles to be had here and there.

Batman v Superman Retro Trailer

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be old news, but fans are still having fun playing with the iconic face-off between the two biggest superheroes in the DC Comics universe. Since some believe Zack Snyder didn’t give us exactly the versions of Batman and Superman that fans have loved for decades, maybe a version of the movie starring a couple of the earlier big screen incarnations of The Dark Knight and The Big Blue Boy Scout may be more acceptable.

A new Batman v Superman retro trailer imagines what it might have been like if Michael Keaton‘s Batman and Christopher Reeve‘s Superman went head-to-head. It’s a fun little edit that makes me wish that these two versions of the heroes would have had some kind of crossover a couple decades ago. Watch it below! Read More »

Kevin Smith Reacts to Yoga Hosers Reviews

Right now you can see Yoga Hosers in select theaters if you’re in the mood to see the latest insane romp from Kevin Smith. The filmmaker behind Clerks, Dogma and most recently the weird horror movie Tusk has said that he set out to make a movie that he would have wanted to watch if he were a 12-year old girl. However, I’m not sure there’s anything in the movie that’s really appropriate for tweens to see. But that’s a different conversation entirely.

Regardless of the appropriateness of the movie for certain ages, the reviews of the movie haven’t been very kind. The movie stands at 21% on Rotten Tomatoes (with a 3.5 rating out of 10), and even Kevin Smith’s most loyal fans haven’t found much to like about the movie. But since Kevin Smith has made nice with critics (apparently by way of this very movie), he decided to face the criticism head-on by reacting to some of the more scathing reviews on a recent episode of his podcast Hollywood Babble-On with Ralph Garman.

Kevin Smith reacts to Yoga Hosers reviews after the jump along with a video featuring a clip where the director gets a little emotional while answering a question posed to him by the film’s star, his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith. Read More »

Friday the 13th Video Game Trailer

There are already plenty of violence in video games, so creating a gem where you’re the iconic slasher Jason Vorhees just makes sense. That’s exactly what Gun Media Home Video and IllFonic are doing with Friday the 13th: The Game.

We got a tease of the forthcoming video game back in June with actual gameplay footage, but now a new trailer has come out of PAX West, showing a collection of brutal kills you can carry out as the hockey-masked killer. This video is very NSFW if people at your job would frown upon video game blood and murder. Seriously, there’s a lot of it, and it’s pretty damn brutal. So watch at ths Friday the 13th video game trailer your own risk. Read More »

Transformers Short Film

When it comes to the Transformers film franchise, we’re really just watching Michael Bay play with an endless array of expensive toys and technology to bring his craziest visions to life. But wouldn’t it be great if we could see a movie that brought to life the kind of cinematic battles that children imagine when they’re playing with their action figures?

A new short from French Canadian filmmaker Patrick Bolvin does just that as he uses visual effects to bring some Transformers action figures to life as a child is making them battle on a table in the backyard. It’s wonderful and I only wish it was longer. Watch the Transformers short film after the jump. Read More »

Pixar Marketing Video

Today Pixar Animation is known for creating computer animated motion pictures that make us laugh and cry, from their first feature length film Toy Story to this past summer’s Finding Dory. But back in the early 1990s, Pixar’s advanced animation techniques were mostly seen as another way for other companies to use state-of-the-art technology to do boring business more effectively.

A marketing video and sample reel of Pixar’s work in 1990 surfaced online earlier this year, and it shows just how the company was marketing itself at the time. While the company had already won an Academy Award for their animated short Tin Toy and had been known for creating stunning digital effects in movies like The Abyss, this video is all about showing how Pixar can help companies in their presentations and advertising.

Morgan Trailer Created by a Compuater

Since Morgan is all about a synthetically created human evolving faster than imagined and turning on its creators, it only makes sense that 20th Century Fox wanted to bring some of the more advanced intelligent creations that humanity has brought into this world with technology.

We’ve already seen what happens with artificially intelligent robots watch the trailer for Morgan, but what happens when IBM’s advanced learning machine known as Watson (the one that dominated Jeopardy!) is tasked with helping create a movie trailer for the sci-fi thriller? See how Watson fared with its selection of clips that were assembled into a trailer after the jump. Read More »

Margaret Qualley in Spike Jonze perfume ad for Kenzo World

Like a lot of filmmakers, Spike Jonze started out directing music videos and commercials, and also like a lot of filmmakers, he still likes to return to short-form projects from time to time. Recently, he teamed up with French fashion house Kenzo to help promote their new fragrance, Kenzo World. But what they came up with isn’t your typical perfume ad, with sexy models lounging around and whispering seductive nonsense phrases. It starts out looking like it could be one, but then turns into something much weirder and cooler than that.

Basically, imagine Jonze’s own “Weapon of Choice” music video, but with the manic, expressive choreography of Sia’s “Chandelier.” Then drop The Nice Guys actress (and trained ballerina) Margaret Qualley into the middle of it all, and that’s the new Spike Jonze perfume ad right there. In other words, it’s something you definitely want to put in front of your eyeballs right this second. Click ahead to do just that.  Read More »
