‘RED 2′ drops August 2nd, 2013.
The redband trailer for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s latest film, ‘The Last Stand’, features over-the-top action, a bit of coarse language, and, most importantly of all, gratuitous violence. Looks like a winner to me.
‘The Last Stand’ drops January 18th.
Alright! A bit more footage from the upcoming J.J. Abrams ‘Star Trek’ sequel; bring on the lens flare!
‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’ drops May 17th, 2013.
I think I’m going to let this trailer speak for itself.
This fantastic design from graphic designer Ian Leino combines two of the greatest properties of all time, Star Wars and James Bond, into a printed t-shirt that reminds all that Han Solo is awesome (and it’s implied he shot first). Manufactured and printed in the USA on American Apparel 100% soft jersey cotton shirts.
‘The Dark Knight Rises’ came out on DVD/Blu-ray/digital download today, and to promote the release Warner Bros. released this infographic detailing both the actual character Bane in TDKR and the process by which he was brought to film.

Hooray! Hollywood is completely missing the point of the book being an account of a world recovering from a massive zombie war as told from the perspective of multiple people. Instead, they’ve turned it into a generic modern zombie flick with a god-like-solve-all-problems solo protagonist in Brad Pitt! I’m totally sure it’s a way better story.
In (the unlikely event) you missed the news, Disney purchased LucasFilms and most, if not all, of its assets for 4 billion dollars. I wonder if we’ll finally see a blu-ray release of the original, unaltered trilogy now that Lucas and his “vision” isn’t holding it back. I also request a version of ‘Crystal Skull’ with all scenes featuring Shia LeBeouf either altered or completely removed.
‘Flare’ is a video series by Forth Wall Studios that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world (sans zombies, as far as I can tell) where the sun, moon, the stars, and electricity went out. What makes it interactive, so to speak, is it’s one of Fourth Wall’s RIDES series, where the viewer can give additional info, such as their phone number and email, to receive messages detailing other elements of the story to further deepen the experience.
You can watch the first episode titled ‘The Hunt’ here.
Jim Carrey is playing Colonel Stars (in a MultiCam outfit to boot) in ‘Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall’, the upcoming sequel to ‘Kick-Ass’, the movie based on the comic of the same name.
‘America’s Fighting Dinosaur’ is a short film currently looking for funding on Kickstarter. It’s a faux documentary on the exploits of “Pvt. “Little” Sammy Vogel, a 7 ton, 40 foot long Army infantryman and Tyrannosaurus Rex” and his actions during WWII. The project has already easily reached past its $10,000 goal, however the creator has stated that any additional funds up to and past $20,000 will be used to extend the original run time of 10 minutes to roughly 40 minutes, along with adding additional rewards to the different donation levels, such making the soundtrack available via digital download and posters and t-shirts.
ThinkGeek is selling replicas of the Imperial Death Star Officer’s Cap from the ‘Star Wars’ films. They’re created from the existing cut patterns from the LucasFilms archives and made using a heavy, custom dyed, all-cotton weave, which is similar to the fabric used to make the originals. The cap also includes an aluminum Imperial disk, which functions as “the metal thing in the center of the forehead”. Great for cosplay or just wearing around, because nothing says ‘I’m awesome’ quite like an Imperial Officer’s Cap.
You can buy it here.
This impressive bladed implement the Victor Lee VL-03B Fantasy Folding Knife. It features three 3″ curved black stainless steel blades that can fold into the knife body. The handle is anodized aluminum and has a belt clip. It kind of reminds me of the Glaive, minus two blades, of course; based on some reviews I’ve read I also wouldn’t suggest throwing it.
You can get it off Amazon.
Another amazingly detailed 1:4 scale (20.5 inches) replica figurine from the folks at Sideshow Collectables. This time, its of Dutch Schaefer, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character in the cinema classic ‘Predator’. The Dutch figurine is clad in a real fabric costume that includes woodland camo pants and shirt, a detailed vest, and jungle boots and comes armed with an M-16 with M203 grenade launcher, .45 caliber pistol, machete, and knife.
You can pre-order from Sideshow Collectables.
It seems when the Russians stole the plans for S.H.I.E.L.D.’s helicarrier, they drastically misinterpreted the proper dimensions when building their own version.
Arnold’s back in 2013! Well, he’s in the Expendables 2, but that’s like the supergroup of action movies, and this is more akin to a revival solo act. Anyway, Arnold plays a small town Sherrif brought in to terminate (I couldn’t resist) a notorious cartel that’s overrun the local law enforcement. Looks like there’s also the obligatory hot action woman and a crazy prepared nutjob to help round out the cast; looks promising.
The Last Stand drops 2013.
Batman: Puppet Master is a fan film depicting events that occur between ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. The short film introduces classic villains Mr. Zazas, The Ventriloquist and Scarface, and Edward Nigma, AKA The Riddler, who’s been reimagined as an FBI agent brought in to capture Batman. It has a few elements of the Knightfall storyline, primarily die to Nigma’s plan to wear out Batman with a crime wave before trying to unmask his identity. Not everyone about the casting and writing is perfect, primarily Batman, but it’s a great idea that’s full of potential. I’d love to see the story progress through additional films.
I’m sure you know about the Internet Movie Database, or imdb.com, another one of those internet time sinks that has information on almost every movie ever along with almost every actor ever, the parts they’ve played, etc. Since this is the internet, where just about any damn thing can be found, and copycats are common, somebody made a similar site in the form of a Wiki, but with firearms as the primary focus instead of movies and actors, even calling it the internet movie firearm database. On the site, you can look up what movies, television shows, and video games a firearm has been in, what firearms a movie, television show, or video game has featured, and even what firearms and in what show/movie/video game an actor has used.
It’s pretty exhaustive, which makes games of 6-degrees-of-a-Beretta-92F all the easier to play.
Peer Kreuger of Vayamenda.com created these amazing motorized LEGO models of the black and camo Tumblers and The Bat (which doesn’t actually fly) from The Dark Knight Trilogy. Additionally, he’s put them up to the CUUSOO process where there’s a chance they could become actual LEGO sets: The Bat and The Tumbler.
