Woody and Buzz are arguably two of the most popular characters Disney has created in decades. They’re friendly, they’re funny, they’re leaders and models of good behavior. Except, of course, when some crazy person them mods them into the world of Grand Theft Auto.
What follows isn’t for the faint of heart. There’s a strong possibility that seeing the stars of Toy Story blowing up police cars and shooting guns all with a terrifying smile on their face, could really screw you up. Or it’ll make you laugh. Check it out below. Read More »

Another day, another edition of Star Wars Bits. This week’s biggest news, so far, is the rumor that not only is Harrison Ford returning for Star Wars Episode VII, but that Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will too. Plus some combination of their kids (hopefully not Mark and Carrie’s) may be the protagonists of the film. Of course, this is about as good an educated guess as one could make considering all the facts, but now it comes from an actual source.
After the jump, read more about that as well as the following:
- The original Boba Fett, Jeremy Bulloch, is excited and willing to return in a Boba Fett spin-off or Episode VII.
- Check out footage from a cancelled Star Wars fighting video game.

An imagination is the ultimate playground. There you can take anything you want and make it do anything you want. If you want a character from a movie to fight a character from a video game in the world of a comic book, your imagination can do that, no matter what logistical issues it might present in real life. Disney is now trying to take that limitless imagination and turn it into a video game.
Disney Infinity uses a physical toy and platform system, much like Skylanders, with which gamers can take control of characters from both the Disney and Pixar universes and team them up on any kind of adventure imaginable. Of course, if you’d like them to live in a movie world, that can be arranged too, as packs specific to movies like Monsters University, Pirates of the Caribbean, and The Lone Ranger and others will be available.
Disney Infinity is being developed for all major gaming platforms and will begin to roll out in June. If you watch the trailer below, details about the concept get clearer. Read More »
In 2007, Activision changed first person shooters forever with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The fourth game to carry the “Call of Duty” name, it was the first set in modern times. The release became a cultural phenomenon, due in large part to its incredibly exciting online multiplayer experience Since then, the release of each subsequent game has been met with the kind of fanfare usually reserved for the biggest summer blockbusters. Call of Duty became a video game mega blockbuster, grossing billions of dollars.
The franchise is so well-known, in fact, that a movie based on it seems like a slam-dunk. A new article profiling the head of Activision, however, may ease the minds of COD fans around the world worried about what a film would look like. A Call of Duty movie is not something Activision is interested in. Read more after the jump. Read More »
James Rolfe is one of my favorite Internet personalities, but maybe you know him better by his other name: The Angry Video Game Nerd. Back in 2006, Rolfe began reviewing old, crappy video games on YouTube and quickly became an online sensation. His reviews of 8-bit games like Top Gun, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Back to the Future and accessories such as the Power Glove have been viewed by millions of people.
In October 2011, Rolfe asked his huge Internet following for a favor. He wanted to make a movie based on his character, the Angry Video Game Nerd, and started an IndieGoGo page asking for $75,000. $325,000 later, Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie was a go.
Co-written and directed by James Rolfe and Kevin Finn, the movie has finished shooting and is now being edited. As a reward to his fans, Rolfe cut a trailer. Watch it below. Read More »
For most of us, Boba Fett was likely our first introduction to the world of bounty hunting. He was the kick-ass bad guy we loved to hate because he was always one step ahead of our heroes. That mythic nature of bounty hunting has faded in recent years, mostly due to reality TV, but Quentin Tarantino is on track to make it cool again. In his latest film Django Unchained, we’ll follow a freed slave (Jamie Foxx) trained to be a bounty hunter by Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). Schultz is hot on the trail of his latest conquest and knows Django is the only person who can help him.
On the movie’s official website, they’ve just launched a new mini-game called Bounty Hunter 1800 that puts you in the shoes of Schultz, as you navigate your way around, looking for bounties and shooting them dead. We’re excited to debut it. Check it out below and don’t forget Django opens December 25. Read More »
Video game fans are well-aware that Halo 4 is hitting stores November 6. It’s the gaming equivalent of The Dark Knight Rises or The Avengers being released: a guaranteed blockbuster with huge, mass appeal across multiple mediums. The difference is Halo 4 will probably gross more because it costs $60 a pop instead of $15. But unlike the standard practice of popular movies being turned into video games, popular video games don’t always get turned into movies. Halo in particular has a long, storied history of filmmakers trying to make it to the big screen. To date, it hasn’t happened.
Today, we get a huge live-action version of Halo in commercial form. Oscar-nominated director David Fincher has produced a TV spot for the game, directed by Tim Miller, the creative director of Blur Studios, who helped Fincher on the title sequence to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. It the latest in a long history of Halo commercials getting a Hollywood upgrade.
Check out the commerical, when delves into the past of Master Chief, after the jump. Read More »
