Kevin Smith Stan Lee Cameo School

Let’s be honest. When you think of cameos in movies today, you think of Stan Lee. The Marvel legend obviously didn’t invent the cameo, but he’s made it his own over the past twenty years in everything from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to the Spider-Man films, X-Men films and even Mallrats. That last one, more of an extended cameo, was directed by Kevin Smith who himself has had a good run with cameos both as an actor and director.

So what better combo than Lee and Smith to do a quick short called Cameo School which itself features some funny cameos? Smith directed Lee, who stars, but Smith also appears. Check it out below. Read More »

Rush Hour 4 Face Off 2

Recently, I was walking on Hollywood Blvd. and saw the above billboard above the street. It was obviously some kind of joke, but there was no hint at the punchline. We know Brett Ratner has been thinking about Rush Hour 4 for a few years, but not with Sean Combs and Byung-Hun Lee. And what’s the connection to Face/Off? Could this be an ad? A short film? Turns out, it’s a Funny or Die skit.

In Rush Hour 4 Face/Off 2, Combs and Lee are in the Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan roles, but that’s not really the joke. It’s in lots of weird references to Face/Off where this video finds its humor. This is a  very odd video. Check it out below. Read More »

VOTD: What If ‘Man of Steel’ Was in Color?

Man of Steel in Color

Seems like everyone has a strong opinion about Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel, and technology allows some to express them more vividly than others. The film’s color palette, seemingly crafted to make the film sit alongside Christopher Nolan’s Batman films while also creating a more “modern” Superman, doesn’t sit well with some fans who want a sunnier man of steel. One group has gone so far as to re-color the movie with a bright color palette more in keeping with Richard Donner’s 1978 film. Check out the video essay that presents Man of Steel in color.

Tomorrowland walt disney

Walt Disney and his theme parks exist in the world of Brad Bird‘s Tomorrowland. That’s a secret the cast and crew kept for a long time but in the past few videos and trailers, it’s become abundantly clear. The question then becomes, how much of an influence was Walt on this movie, which is named after something he first created in the 1950? A few new featurettes give some tantalizing teases at these connections alongside glimpses of a few other things from the film.

Plus, a new novel serves as a prequel to Tomorrowland and offers even more context. Find out more about the Tomorrowland Walt Disney connections below. Read More »

But you don’t have to brave the crowds and traffic to see the madness. Below, we’ve got the Avengers Family Feud video along with some other Kimmel videos and a selection of the best red carpet photos from the premiere. Check them out below. Read More »

VOTD: New THX Intro Goes Ethereal

new thx intro

When a THX intro plays in front of a movie, you know you’re in for a treat. The movie may be terrible but you know that it’s going to look and sound great. That knowledge made the old school THX intros a sort of comfort blanket for film fans. A guarantee of quality in an industry where crap is often good enough.

Now, a new intro is out there and it’s a bit more ethereal than we’re used to. There aren’t any mechanical flowers or flying robots; it’s just a journey into deep space. Check out the new THX intro below. Read More »

Disney Pixar's X-Wings

This is probably the biggest nightmare for Star Wars fans after it was first announced Disney was buying Star Wars. Would the Mouse House turn the beloved science fiction fantasy epic into a generic neutered animated franchise for children? So far it doesn’t appear to be in the plans. Sure, they have the Star Wars Rebels animated series on Disney XD, but thats actually good despite the rather low budget animation. But Big Bee Studio imagined what would happen if the people who made Cars & Planes got their hands on Star Wars. The result is a fake trailer for a new movie titled Disney Pixar’s X-Wings. And while this is horrifying, the Disney toy department obviously had similar ideas which thankfully will remain toys for now. After the jump you can watch the Disney Pixar X-Wings movie trailer.
