‘LFO’ Trailer: Manipulating People With Sound

LFO trailer

In LFO, an amateur scientist develops a technique for hypnotizing people using a specific sound frequency. He puts this into action using his neighbors as subjects, and things get weird, as you’d expect. Fittingly for a trailer for a film about manipulation via sound, there is no dialogue here — this LFO trailer is all machine-made sound and atmosphere. There’s not much indication of the film’s sense of humor here, as this trailer is all about the weird. But that’s a good place to start.

Terminator Genisys pg-13 rating

We don’t really know too much about the new Terminator movie Terminator Genisys, which features franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his franchise role as The Terminator, alongside Emilia Clarke as Sarah Conner, Jason Clarke as John Conner and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese – the three points of a family triangle first outlined in James Cameron’s original Terminator. J.K. Simmons recently revealed that the new film, is actually a love story, which further pushes the rumors that the film is both a sequel and a reboot.

Courtney has recently been making the press rounds and has revealed a bunch of information about the upcoming film, claiming its not a reboot or a sequel, talking about the performance capture endoskeletons and admitting the movie will likely be rated PG-13 (both of which won’t please fans of the franchise). He also talked about the announced sequels, and more. Hit the jump to get all the details about the Terminator Genisys PG-13 rating and more!

Darth Vader Rebels

This was rumored a couple days ago, but now ABC and LucasFilm are pushing it hard: the Star Wars Rebels opening event episode, Spark of the Rebellion, will be re-aired on network television. But when Spark hits ABC it won’t just be the same thing we saw on Disney Channel a couple weeks ago. This time, Spark will feature some new material in which we see Darth Vader, once again voiced by James Earl Jones. Given that the companies are blasting out press releases with this info, we’ll assume that it will end up in ads for the re-airing, and that it isn’t a spoiler.

STAR WARS: BATTLE POD

I mentioned the Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game in the last edition of Page 2, but now that we have video of the game in action, I think this is worth a stand-alone post. As far as I can tell, Star Wars Battle Pod is the first Star Wars arcade machine in 14 years (Sega released a podracing arcade machine called Star Wars: Racer Arcade in 2000 following the release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace). Probably like many of you who grew up in the 1980′s, I spent tons of quarters at the arcade (Fun n Games in Framingham, MA) on the original 1983 Star Wars arcade machine produced by Atari or (more so) 1993 Sega’s Star Wars Arcade and the Star Wars Trilogy Arcade which was produced alongside the original trilogy special editions.

Now-a-days arcades are few and far between, but the Barcade revolution is playing upon nostalgia and giving arcade games a small renaissance.  So I was a little surprised when Bandai Namco Games announced they would be making a new Star Wars arcade machine. Star Wars Battle Pod made its debut in a preview during New York Comic Con and looks INCREDIBLE. After the jump you can see the trailer, some video of the new game in action and read some more information about the Star Wars Battle Pod arcade game.

first day of new Star Wars shooting

The only thing some Star Wars fans want more than Episode VII is for Fox and/or Disney to re-release the original Star Wars trilogy in its pre-Special Edition form. Rumors have come and gone about Disney planning just such a release, and each time they’ve been hampered by logic and lack of evidence. Fox has distribution for the original Star Wars, for one, and holds distribution rights to the other 2/3 of the original trilogy through 2020. Could Fox work with Disney on a re-release? Yes. Will they? That’s a very different question. And then you’ve got to factor in the slim chance of the pre-Special Edition versions being officially given new life.

But still, a new Italian ad for Disney’s digital portal service is bringing the rumor back up again. Is there any more reason to believe it now than there was the last time this concept cropped up? Read More »

LOL: ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Honest Trailer

Transformers 4

The Screen Junkies team isn’t always mean. When they’re genuinely impressed by a movie, they’re honest enough to say so. But if I’m being honest, it’s more fun to watch them rip a deserving target to shreds. And the Transformers: Age of Extinction Honest Trailer is truly a delight to behold.

The video tears into all the obnoxious, nonsensical, and downright stupid aspects of the Michael Bay-directed extravaganza, and even delves into some eye-rolling errors you might have missed. Hit the jump to watch the Transformers Age of Extinction Honest Trailer.
