We’ve previously shown you The Bayhem, a custom RED camera that was created for director Michael Bay. Today we want to introduce you to the Baybuster, a custom car rig created for the filmmaker that allows him to get crazy car flips. If Michael Bay had his own tricked out Mad Max-style Batmobile, the Baybuster would be it. Hit the jump to watch some videos showing the Baybuster in action.

What’s the point of showing up on a talk show if you don’t have a movie, tv show or music album to promote? It seems like almost everything these days is timed for the sole purpose of spiking the social shares and trying to create an explosion of buzz in the real world. Movie promotion usually comes in two waves, with the release of a film theatrically, and then later around the home video release. After that, we usually don’t see more material from a film because film studios believe there isn’t a point. But now in the world of cinematic universes and not just franchises but brands that stretch into the far reaches, maybe they see a reason?
I recently discovered that Universal Pictures has been updating the Jurassic Park youtube account with new content on almost a daily basis. The new content is anything from featurettes that originally appeared on the home video release, to behind the scenes b-roll footage, to rough-cut dailies, previs and more. Now I know you might not be as big of a fan of Jurassic World as I am, but I think you might be able to find some enjoyment in the wealth of content that has been released. I’ve always found it frustrating how much footage is captured during the making of a film, yet only a small percentage of it makes it to the home video release. I hope more movie studios can learn from this.
Hit the jump to check out some of the highlights from the Jurassic World behind the scenes footage.

We’re a little over a month away from the release of Doctor Strange, and while there are undoubtedly plenty of fans who are excited to see what Marvel Studios has to offer with their latest installment to the Marvel cinematic universe, it feels like the hype isn’t where it should be. I’m not sure if Doctor Strange is too obscure or mystical for fans to latch onto him, but the excitement just doesn’t seem to be there. Hopefully I’m wrong.
In an effort to get the hype machine cranked up a bit, Marvel has released a batch of new Doctor Strange TV spots. There’s a lot of footage shared between them, but there are some glimpses of new footage dispersed between what we’ve already seen. Watch them all below! Read More »

Not only was What We Do In The Shadows one of my favorite films of 2015, it shocked us all by coming in at #2 on the list of the best movies of the year put together by all of us here at /Film. Right now the film’s director, Taika Waititi, is busy in Australia behind the camera for Thor: Ragnarok, the third film in the Marvel Studios franchise. But before he went into superhero territory, Waititi went back to New Zealand for an indie adventure comedy that debuted at Sundance this year and is now readily available for you to watch.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople arrives on Blu-ray and DVD next week, but you can actually buy it on Digital HD right now if you were so inclined. And honestly, it could be the best decision you make this month, or even next month. The film takes the character dynamic of Up and tosses it into the brush of New Zealand with adorable hilarity that only Taika Waititi can deliver. If you need any more convincing, you can watch the first 10 minutes of Hunt for the Wilderpeople after the jump. Read More »
In recent years, The Simpsons has been executing some very elaborate and outstanding sequences for their traditional couch gag for the opening credits. Earlier this year The Simpsons got a Disney style makeover by Aladdin animator Eric Goldberg and last year featured references to Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty and even another opening done by Ren & Stimpy creator John Kricfalusi.
Now The Simpsons is getting the Adventure Time treatment, and going through Springfield in the same style of the opening credits of the popular Cartoon Network animated series that kids and adults alike rather enjoy. It’s an impressive sequence, and it’s actually twice as long as the usual Adventure Time opening credits. See which Adventure Time characters The Simpsons become and see if you can spot all the Easter eggs, including a monorail reference, in the full couch gag after the jump. Read More »
Production on the new Jumanji is underway over in the jungles of Hawaii. Kevin Hart just recently posted a first look at our main characters played by himself, Dwayne Johnson, Karen Gillan and Jack Black. Now it’s Hart’s Central Intelligence co-star’s turn to share a behind-the-scenes look at the movie that was initially thought to be reboot, but is actually a sequel. In fact, it sounds like it’s more of a legacy-quel since the movie will pay tribute to Robin Williams’ character in some capacity.
In addition, Jumanji 2 has added some new cast members, including Flight of the Conchords and What We Do In The Shadows star Rhys Darby, and Karen Gillan revealed a tease about why her character is so scantily clad in the dangerous jungle. See all that and Dwayne Johnson’s Jumanji 2 set video after the jump. Read More »

After nearly six months of waiting, we are now just two days away from the season 3 premiere of Star Wars Rebels. But if patience isn’t your strong suit (and who could blame you, given all the exciting stuff about to go down next season?), Disney XD has dropped a couple new clips for you to pore over while you wait. In one, Ezra (Taylor Gray) consults a Sith Holocron, while in another, Ezra and Hera (Vanessa Marshall) go undercover and find themselves face-to-face with Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen).
