Keanu Calendar - Mad Max: Fury Road

We don’t typically write about movie swag on /Film, although I’ll often tweet about some of the cooler things that get sent to the /Film offices to promote upcoming films and television shows. Today I received a package from Warner Bros. Pictures with swag promoting their upcoming film Keanu, a comedy film movie from Key and Peele. If you haven’t yet watched the trailer for this film, go do so now.

When I opened the box I knew I had to feature it on the site. The box contained a plush of the cat at the center of the film, Keanu, complete with his do-rag and gold chain. But thats not all, Warner Bros. produced a full-size calendar featuring Keanu reenacting scenes from popular movies. That’s the part I really wanted to show you as it’s ridiculous, cute and awesome. Before the Oscars they released a set of movie posters spoofing this year’s Academy Award nominees. This takes it further because they’ve gone to the lengths of elaborate photo shoots, rather than fast and dirty Photoshops. Hit the jump to take a look at some of the Keanu movie parodies featured in this Keanu calendar.

Inception on Elm Street

Thanks to the twisted mind of the recently passed horror icon Wes Craven, we’ll forever have Freddy Krueger to haunt our nightmares. And while one of the Nightmare on Elm Street films finally decided to have Freddy’s victims go out of their way to fight back in their dreams, only one dream expert has the power to stop him once and for all: Leonardo DiCaprio.

More specifically, it’s Leonardo DiCaprio as Cobb, the character from Christopher Nolan’s dreamscape action thriller Inception. A trailer mash-up entitled Inception on Elm Street makes Cobb the dream gatekeeper that Freddy Krueger has to get by first before he came leap from our dreams into the real world. It makes for a rather intriguing concept. Read More »

Edgar Wright Wes Craven tribute

Horror director Wes Craven, the man responsible for A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream, among many other films, passed away over the weekend, succumbing to a battle with brain cancer. It’s a loss felt by many horror fans and cinephiles, who are taking stock of Craven’s significant influence on the movie landscape.

In case you need any more evidence that Wes Craven was a filmmaker who inspired many directors working today, Edgar Wright has chimed in on his own personal blog with a fond remembrance of Craven and what his work meant to the director of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

Wes Craven interview

Last night brought the tragic news that iconic horror director Wes Craven had passed away at age 76. The man was responsible for helping change the face of horror with A Nightmare on Elm Street and also reinventing the slasher subgenre by pulling back the curtain on all its tropes while also adhering to them in Scream. You’d be hard-pressed to find a horror director who wasn’t influenced by the work of Wes Craven.

Therefore, it’s the perfect time to take a look back at an extended Wes Craven interview from Fangoria TV‘s series Screamography, which chronicled the rise of some of the most iconic filmmakers in the horror genre from their early upbringing through their most well-known achievements in cinema.
