The Simpsons and the Griffiths have danced around each other for years, sharing Fox’s Animation Domination programming block and taking good-natured jabs around each other on their respective shows. But it’s only this fall that they’re coming face-to-face for the very first time.
At Comic-Con this weekend, attendees got a first look at the upcoming Simpsons / Family Guy crossover in the form of a five-minute preview. Now the clip has just hit the web, and you can check it out after the jump.

The Lannisters are tough, poker-faced bastards, but the actors who play members of one of the elite families of Westeros can’t always keep a straight face on set. Luckily the cameras are rolling even when some of these folk are in their more vulnerable moments, and so we’ve got an entertaining Game of Thrones gag reel from season four. (Worry not; it’s not just the Lannister family caught in weird moments here. If you’re a Lion-hater there are still plenty of highlights here to enjoy.)
There are no big spoilers here, though I’m not sure why you’d be watching this sort of reel if you’re not caught up on the show in the first place. Check out the video below. Read More »

The world of Hannibal is a deadly serious one, full of intelligent psychopaths able to realize their ”designs” with terrifying precision. But as the Hannibal Season 2 gag reel shows, the set of Hannibal looks much more lighthearted.
After the jump, watch Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, and the rest of the cast screw up during takes and screw around between them.

James Franco directed an adaption of the Cormac McCarthy novel Child of God, which opens in some theaters on August 1. But Franco also wanted to adapt McCarthy’s novel Blood Meridian, and even Franco admits the book seems like an “un-filmable” novel. That didn’t stop him from trying, and a few years ago Franco shot a test reel for the project. This 25-minute reel features characters from the novel that fans will very much recognize. Notably, the Judge appears, played by Mark Pellegrino. The Kid is played by Dave Franco, and Scott Glen and Luke Perry show up, too, as Tobin and Glanton.
This is very much a test reel — a rough edit, and lacking any polished sound mix — but it’s interesting to see Franco explore this particular sequence at length. If this was ever made as a traditional feature, this whole sequence would likely be condensed in a significant fashion. Additionally, the cast here may not have ended up in the feature. Note to anyone unfamiliar with Blood Meridian: this is not safe for work. Read More »

Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah hits home video on July 29th 2014 (preorder it here) and Paramount has released a bunch of video clips from the making of documentary on the blu-ray release. I really liked the film, and its always great to see real clips of Darren Aronofsky directing a film. These clips go to show just how much cast and crew it takes to bring this tale to the big screen. One of the clips shows the elaborate rig which creates the rain at the beginning of the flood sequence. Watch the Noah behind the scenes video clips after the jump.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
This Boyhood TV spot opens with something that communicates the unusual scope of the Richard Linklater film in just a few seconds.
A set of photos of the central character, Mason Jr. (played by Ellar Coltrane) flashes by in quick succession, illustrating his growth from age 6 to age 18. While the feature itself is a terrific vision of the growth of the boy and the family around him, that parade of images is a perfect way to condense the film into just a few seconds. The spot continues from there, of course, and you can watch the whole thing here. Read More »
