  • So What If Superheroes Had Average American Body Types? [Photos]

    When it comes to accurate depictions of the human body, comic book heroes are hardly realistic. Whether they’re sprouting blades from their hands or surviving decades in a deep freeze, these characters regularly push the limits of what’s considered possible. But they also depart from realistic human anatomy in a more mundane sense: Almost none of them reflect the typical physique of most Americans. Today, 33.7% of men and 36.5% of women in the U.S. are considered obese, and more than two-thirds are overweight. 1. Weight gain has put millions of people at risk of heart disease, diabetes, and other preventable conditions. 2 Meanwhile, comic books depict vastly different figures: men with massive biceps and shoulders and women with toned abs and tiny waists. So what would they look like if they reflected more typical body shapes and sizes? We’ve Photoshopped several major comic book characters – not to touch them up, but to make the average hero look more like the average American. — Use the slider to switch between the superhero in the comic book form vs the superhero in realistic form — Batman vs Realistic Batman — Iron Man vs Realistic Iron Man — Black Widow vs more »

  • The Cast of Almost Famous: Then and Now

  • The 2015 Oscar Nominees Were Serious Dorks Before They Became Famous

    In case you hadn’t heard, the Oscars are this weekend. And just like us, the biggest names in Hollywood had to start somewhere, and also just like us, they also looked pretty stupid before they eventually got their shit together. Even if they are now the Oscar nominees for this year’s Academy Awards. If you watch nothing else today you simply have to see “second year actor” Bradley Cooper looking about as far from being The Sexiest Man Alive as can be when he is in the audience of Inside the Actors Studio and asks Sean Penn a dopey question. Priceless. Watch the incredible video on Brobible.com

  • Uncoventional Heroes A Look at Movie cars with a Twist

    Uncoventional Heroes 2 is an illustration series by Gerald Bear, a Graphic Design and Illustrator from Mila, Italy, set around vehicles from pop culture, but not the vehicles you’re used to seeing.

  • The Definitive 10 Worst Characters In Home Alone

    So I just read Joyce‘s story “The Definitive List of The 10 Greatest Characters in Home Alone” and I will say it was pretty money.  Good job, brother.  How you leave Snakes and/or Johnny off that list is beyond me, but hey, I didn’t say nothin’. After reading his story, I texted him and said “but what about the WORST characters?”  After a few exchanges, we came up with what we think are the 10 biggest idiots in our favorite Christmas movie.

  • Poll: Is Seth Rogen Worried About Getting Assassinated by North Korea?

    According to UPROXX The Interview scandal has hit an even uglier low as Seth Rogen and James Franco are genuinely unsure about what’s going to happen when The Interview is released as they have canceled all their upcoming press appearances, including a Thursday night chat with Seth Meyers. It’s a very curious situation because Rogen was recently on Colbert and at one point he seemed extremely jumpy when Colbert made a sudden movement behind the desk. Although the FBI has said there is no credible threats against the actors or theaters showing the film, the look of genuine fear in Rogen’s eyes makes us wonder if North Korea’s death threats could be real. Are they really worried that North Korea would try to assassinate them disguised as an interview team? That would be incredibly meta, but let’s leave it up to a poll.

  • The Definitive List of The 10 Greatest Characters in Home Alone

    When it comes to Christmas movies there are very few that can rival Home Alone.  To me, Home Alone is the best Christmas movie of all time.  Hands down.  The perfect mix of child and adult humor all balled into one.  I know all of you Christmas movie purists are out there drinking hot cocoa with your pinky up like Waahhh A Christmas Story is better.  And you’re right, good movie, but it doesn’t hold a candle to Kevin McCallister. Due to my thorough love for Home Alone I thought it would only be right to compile a list of it’s greatest characters to get you all in the Christmas Spirit. Please enjoy the Home Alone Soundtrack while you read.  10. Mitch Murphy “Bring me back something French!”  What kind of list would this be if we didn’t mention this annoying little fucker.  He was the sole reason the McCallister’s forgot Kevin in the first place.  Had he not been asking the van driver if his van had automatic transmission or 4 wheel drive, they would of noticed Kevin was missing.  So basically without him, there is no movie. 9.

  • Movie Posters for Fictitious Sequels we Wish Were Real

    Hollywood has somewhat of a sick obsession with sequels. Even if a movie is open and shut, if there’s a will there’s a way in Tinseltown. Los Angeles-based art gallery iam8bit put up an art show, ‘Sequel’, that showcases more than 40 illustrated posters of fictitious follow-up movies. From Spaceballs III: The Search for Spaceballs II to Fight Club 2 (which is actually in the works as a graphic novel) to a sequel to The Shining, these movies might seem sacrilegious, but heck, I’d probably pay to see them all. The Sequel exhibition, currently on display till 23 November 2014.

  • This Is How ‘EuroTrip’ Got Matt Damon To Sing ‘Scotty Doesn’t Know’

    UPROXX raised a great question this morning. How did Eurotrip, a cult favorite which didn’t even make its $25 million budget back at the box office, get Matt Damon to sing “Scotty Doesn’t Know”? The movie was released in 2004, the same year Damon also appeared in Ocean’s Twelve and The Bourne Supremacy, so what the hell was he doing at a high school graduation party in Ohio? EuroTrip wasn’t even filmed in the United States. All the magic happened in Prague, including the “Scotty Doesn’t Know” scene, which was shot at the International School of Prague. Damon will also in Prague at the same time, filming The Brothers Grimm. That’s part one. Part two takes us back to 1988, when Damon, who’s celebrating a birthday today, was a student at Harvard, the same university that Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and Dave Mandel also went to. Who they are? The writers, directors, and producers of EuroTrip (some Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm shows, too — Schaffer also created The League with his wife, Jackie). So there you go: were it not for Harvard, there would be no “Scotty Doesn’t Know” with Matt Damon. ‘Bout time Boston did some good in more »

  • Horrible Bosses 2 Trailer Is Here And It Is Glorious!

  • 100 Side by Side Comparisons of Biopic Actors and The People They Portrayed

    The idea for this story is basic, a visual comparison of actors in bio-pics against their real life influences, but after visualizing a few of these side-by-side photos, you can’t help but stare awestruck at the parallels these actors have with the figures they’re portraying. While you can give credit to the actors after actually watching and judging their performances, you have to give it up to the hair and make-up teams that transformed these actors. We pulled together some of the best examples and also created several dozen of our own originals as well.

  • Watch The Full Documentary About The Guy Who Crashed 50 Concerts [Video]

    We previously reported on the documentary No Cameras Allowed which tells the story of James Marcus Haney, a USC dropout who crashed 50 concerts in 4 years and became an official music photographer in the process. MTV premiered the film late last month and now you can watch the full movie streaming online. Although the story can be a tad saccharine-sweet at times, there is plenty of great concert footage weaved in that makes the narrative much easier to tolerate. If you want a positive story set to music and performances from the likes of Mumford & Sons and Old Crow Medicine Show, give No Cameras Allowed a shot. If nothing else, it’s a reminder that MTV is still capable of music-centric programming.
