The Star Wars: Concept Trailer

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

The Star Wars: Concept Trailer from The DAVE School on Vimeo.

About four decades ago, in this very galaxy, a film maker by the name of George Lucas penned material for a space opera film called ‘The Star Wars’. The idea transformed over time into the Star Wars franchise as we know it today, but during production of the initial idea, Lucas hired noted conceptual artist Ralph McQuarrie to paint scenes of the developing script, to show off to the studio. Using this same art as a reference, a team of graduates from the DAVE School produced a trailer for ‘The Star Wars’, as it could have been.

There also happens to be a pretty good comic that adapts an earlier draft of ‘The Star Wars’. If you track down a copy, it’s worth a read.

READY PLAYER ONE – Official Trailer

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

Based on a book with more overt 80s pop culture references than an entire season of Family Guy, READY PLAYER ONE takes place in the near future, where everyone uses VR headsets and haptic suits to explore and interact with a vast MMO world, in which the Willy Wonka-esque creator has hidden an ‘Easter Egg’ which will grant the finder control of said world, and a literal fortune.

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard – Not A Hero Is Now Available

Monday, December 11th, 2017

If you have a copy of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard and you haven’t picked it up in a while, the free Not A Hero DLC is now available. It stars series veteran Chris Redfield and takes place immediately after the events of the main game. I played through it earlier, and although it’s short (~2 hours), it’s pretty good.

World War Z Video Game Teaser Trailer

Friday, December 8th, 2017

At first, I was kind of excited about the prospect of a World War Z game. Max Brooks’ take on zombie lore is pretty good, until it became painfully apparent the game is actually based on that crappy Brad Pitt movie.

Oh well…

Death Stranding – The Game Awards Premier

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

So, uh, yeah… that’s totally a Kojima game, all right.

Avengers: Infinity War Official Trailer

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

10 years and 18 movies, all leading up to a giant, purple Josh Brolin beating a bunch of super heroes around with his golden pimp glove for two hours straight.

Yeah, it’s going to be pretty neat.

Avengers: Infinity War releases May 4th, 2018, which, coincidentally is known as Star Wars Day (May the fourth… get it?). Interesting play by Disney on that one.

New Zealand Police Recruitment Video

Monday, November 27th, 2017

The New Zealand Police released an amusing new recruitment video, that kind of reminds me of Edgar Wright’s Hot Fuzz. Unfortunately, it’s been taken down via a copyright claim on YouTube, so you’ll have to click the image above to view it on the official NZ Police Facebook page.

Sunday, November 26th, 2017

YouTube Channel SKM shows off how to make a quadrotor drone from cardboard. Well, specifically ,a model of a quadrotor drone; this one doesn’t work as a drone as-si.

Still, a good DIY project is a good DIY project, after all.

Oats Studios – Praetoria

Monday, November 6th, 2017

More Neill Blomkamp goodness, this time a teaser of sorts for a “huge galactic story”. Kind of a 40K meets Halo vibe to it.

3D Printed Candy Corn Launcher

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Candy Corn is, in my opinion, a pretty vile candy. Appropriate, then that it’s turned into a projectile, courtesy of YouTuber Ben Marken, who crafted a wrist-mounted 3D-printed Candy Corn Launcher.

Those who are interested in making a launcher for themselves, and have access to a 3D printer, can check out the project on Thingverse.

Jean-Claude Van Johnson – Official Trailer

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

An upcoming Amazon Prime-exclusive series, ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ stars Jean-Claude Van Damme as a retired parody of himself, who wishes to get back to his old work. Except, not as an actor, but as the undercover operative ‘Johnson’. Billed as an action-comedy, it certainty looks the part; the trailer was very amusing.

‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ comes out December 15th, 2017.

When You Love Your 1911 A little Too Much

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Of course I’m not serious. Snake just happens to appreciate a fine custom pistol, just like the rest of us.

Justice League – Trailer 3

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

What’s up with movie trailers and awful fitting music? Regardless, Justice League is looking pretty good. Even so, the DCEU hasn’t had that solid of a critical track record, Wonder Woman notwithstanding, and trailers are designed to attract interest in a property, regardless of the final outcome.

In short, hopefully this pulls a Wonder Woman, and doesn’t suck like the other DCEU movies.

Justice League drops November 2017.

Red Dead Redemption 2 – Trailer #2

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

Another example of a sequel actually being a prequel to the first installment, RDR 2 has you playing as Arthur Morgan as he works with the Van der Linde gang as they outlaw around the Old West.

Comes out Spring 2018.

SmarterEveryDay – Slow Motion See Through Suppressors

Thursday, September 28th, 2017

YouTube channel SmarterEveryDay featured this video detailing see through suppressors in slow motion. Specifically, the channel head Destin Sandlin partnered with Soteria Suppressors to produce the footage, where multiple suppressor designs created by Soteria were wrapped in transparent acrylic, and the footage of them being shot through was recorded at 110,000 frames per second.

It’s interesting to see the various designs, and their pass and fail rate.

Shinichiro Watanabe, director of Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champloo, directed this short animation that takes place in the Blade Runner universe, some 20 years before the events of the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. In it, a devastating EMP strike is blamed on replicants, leading to a human supremacy movement, and replicants being made illegal.
