  • First Action shots of James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10 Filming for Spectre

    Daniel Craig is coming back as 007 in the much anticipated ‘Spectre’ film and we’re about as excited for the movie as we are to see his Aston Martin DB10. Daily Mail recently acquired some action shots of the supercar in action taking on the villain’s Jaguar CX75.New scenes from the Rome set of the movie show yet another high-speed car chase, this time involving a Jaguar closely following Bond’s beloved Aston Martin along the banks of the River Tiber on Wednesday. Aston Martin worked closely with Bond director Sam Mendes to create ‘the ultimate car for the world’s most famous spy’. It is the 50th anniversary of Bond’s use of an Aston Martin, which started in the film Goldfinger when Sean Connery drove the iconic DB5.

  • Top 10 Iconic Movie Death Scenes [Link]

    A recent survey asked over 2000 British adults their opinions on what movie death scenes are the most iconic. Mufasa’s death in The Lion King topped the list, but some of the others in the top 10 may surprise you. We would warn about spoilers ahead, but all these films are incredibly popular and over 10 years old, so if you haven’t seen them, you’re just out of touch. To be honest, we’re a little disappointed that Blue’s death from Old School didn’t make the cut.

  • Wes Anderson’s X-Men Would Be Incredible [Video]

    Warm color palette. Retro soundtrack. Solid color wardrobe. Symmetrical shots. All the things you need for a perfect X-Men movie. No, wait, that’s not right. That would be a Wes Anderson movie. X-Men movies need to be dark and loud with lots of explosions and fight scenes, right? Well we’ve had plenty of those kinds of X-Men movies and for the most part, they just don’t cut it. If this fan-made parody trailer is any indication, Wes Anderson’s version of the X-Men wouldn’t be antirely terrible. Hell, it definitely can’t be worse than X-Men: The Last Stand.

  • Tommy Boy’s Hilarious Gag Reel On The 20th Anniversey of It’s Release

    Chris Farley in Tommy Boy is renowned as one of the most iconic comedic roles of all time. If you disagree you’re an idiot, plain and simple. His presence as an on screen big man has still yet to be over shadowed. Although Farley’s time came too soon, the few movies he managed to accomplish in his career will go down as some of the funniest roles in the history of cinema. The performance that made him a household was undoubtedly Tommy Boy, where he stars alongside co-star and friend David Spade. The gag-reel shown below really gives an insight to what kind of a guy and on set character he really was.

  • A Timeline Of Jared Leto’s Hair Over The Last 20 Years [31 Photos]

    The world first became aware of Jared Leto in 1994 when he became the object of desire for every 90s girl as Jordan Catalano on My So-Called Life. His signature long hair was as short-lived as the series, with both disappearing in 1995. But over the years, he has grown out his hair, spiked it up, bleached it, and just about everything else you can think of. Most recently, he sported a beard and long ponytail but yesterday he again broke hearts worldwide when he shaved his face and chopped off his hair. You know, Brian Krakow would never do such a cold-hearted thing… Anywho, let’s take a look at Jared Leto’s coifs over the last two decades and in the process realize that he never actually ages. Also, as someone considerably younger who fears that their hair won’t grow back with each haircut, I can honestly say I hate him.

  • This Guy Pretended To Be An Oscar Winner And Reaped All The Benefits [Video]

    Looking to score a bunch of free stuff and receive VIP treatment everywhere you go in Los Angeles? No problem! All you have to do is spend years working your ass off in Hollywood and, with a ton of luck, you will one day win an award that lets others know you are their better. Or you can save yourself a lot of time and just pretend to win such an award. Mark David Christenson pretended to win an Oscar for The Imitation Game (get it?) and carried a fake statuette around on award night. He came away with access to all sorts of parties, free Gatorade and condoms from starstruck convenience store clerks, and, most important of all, empanadas.

  • Brilliant ‘House of Cards’ Presidential Posters Inspired by Old Campaigns

    Mashable’s Bob Al-Greene recently created these brilliant past presidential ads in anticipation for the upcoming third season of the Netflix series, House of Cards. Frank Underwood and First Lady Claire have finally made it to the white house, but at what cost? These classic presidential ads range from Obama’s infamous 2008 HOPE ad, to JFK’s “A Time for Fatefullness”. Barack Obama, 2008  IMAGE: MASHABLE/BOB AL-GREENE John F.

  • What Do Korean Girls Think Of Magic Mike? [Video]

    In South Korea’s patriarchal society, sex is not something that is openly discussed, especially with women. And any respectable woman would certainly have absolutely no knowledge of male strip clubs. And that’s what makes this video so great. Watch as these Korean girls see Channing Tatum strip down and hump everything in sight and are confused and disgusted by every minute of it. After this, I guess the producers aren’t bothering with a Korea release for the sequel this summer.

  • What If Celebrities Looked Like Bad Fan Art?

    Remember Napoleon Dynamite’s awful portrait of Trisha? Well it turns out there are actual people who share those middle school art class skills and are oblivious to their lackluster talent. In fact, they proudly share their creations on the Internet. In an effort to make these awkward artists feel better, some kind Redditors Photoshop pictures of celebrities so that they look like the terrible drawings. Now excuse me while I bleach my eyes after looking at that Photoshopped Mel Gibson for too long.

  • The Vocal Track To The Seinfeld Theme Song Revealed

    At a time when just about every sitcom featured a theme song with goofy vocals (think Leon Redbone’s catchy Mr. Belvedere ditty), Seinfeld was an anomaly, with a theme that was nothing more than some funky bass and a brief horn line. But it turns out, the song had a long lost vocal track that was used by nu metal superstars Limp Bizkit in 1999, a year after the hit comedy ended its run. That’s right, when you were rocking out to “Break Stuff” in your Jnco Kangaroos, you were actually justifying ripping someone’s head off to the Seinfeld theme. Or not. But you have to admit, they fit together pretty well.

  • Mega Man Sneakers Bring Back 8-Bit Memories

    Although it’s been years since the last Mega Man video game, the iconic Capcom character, first introduced on the NES back in 1987, is still a favorite among retro gamers. Which is probably why these Mega Man sneakers are bursting with old-school cool. Known as Rockman in Japan, the familiar blue character is emblazoned all over the black Chuck Taylor-esque sneaker in his original 8-bit glory. The tongue features the E-tanks that replenish Mega Man’s life in the series. The 9800 yen ($83) sneakers come out in June but are available for preorder now from SuperGroupies. They look pretty neat, but we’re holding out for a Cut Man hat, complete with titanium blades.

  • Mary Poppins Goes Death Metal

    Everyone went gaga over Lady Gaga’s tribute to Julie Andrews and The Sound of Music at the Oscars on Sunday night, but we find this death metal tribute to Julie Andrews’ best role, Mary Poppins, to be much more entertaining. The music for the track was arranged, performed, and recorded by Andy Rehfeldt, who has made a ton of similarly brilliant videos. The track also features vocals from Sera Hatchett and Thomas Hinds and was mixed by Grant Cornish. Let’s hope next time the Oscars give them all a call instead of Lady Gaga.

  • Spy Shots of James Bond’s Aston Martin for ‘Spectre’ are Drool Worthy

    Over the span of James Bond’s 23 feature films a series of custom Aston Martin’s have graced the screen. Goldfinger, Thunderball, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Die Another Day, Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace and Skyfall have all featured the beautiful curves and contours of the automobile. Now, thanks to the franchise’s Twitter, we can see some rough shots of Bond’s new toy for Spectre, the 24th official Bond picture. The Aston Martin DB10 is a bespoke two-door coupé made specifically for the film is a true thing of beauty. Only 10 of these cars were produced specifically for the movie Recently 007 took his shiny new toy to Rome from London to film a chase scene and a possible race as well. The DB10 will take on a Jaguar C-X75, another car unavailable to the public after Jaguar cancelled production. Maybe after demand goes up for these cars, their auto manufacturer’s will have a second thought.

  • Jerry Made Out With Aubrey Plaza at the Parks and Rec Reunion Last Night

    Parks and Recreation ended their show on a high note last night, don’t worry we won’t spoil anything, but the show as a whole ended on top. The careers of their cast members are flourishing and that has no doubt been a reflection on the success of the show. Last night the gang got together one last time and you could tell from the cast’s charisma with one another just why the show did so well. Oh and then Aubrey Plaza (April) made out with Jerry (Gary, Terry, whatever his name was) during a final rendtion of Goodbye Lil’ Sebastian.

  • Parks And Recreation By The Numbers Infographic

    NBC’s Parks and Recreation ended its run last night after seven seasons. But instead of saying goodbye, we will now binge-watch the show every few months and pick up on new jokes each time, just like Arrested Development. Apparently, the folks over at Vanity Fair are already way ahead of us, keeping track of every “literally” uttered by Chris, every name of Andy’s band, and even the hilarious names of the Pawneean townsfolk. Li’l Sebastian was only mentioned 11 times? That doesn’t sound right. Time to watch the entire series!

  • Birdman Action Figure “Smells Like Balls” [Video]

    In case you were nowhere near a TV or computer screen in the last few days, bizarre dark comedy Birdman won Best Picture at the Oscars on Sunday night. And in typical Hollywood fashion, Fox is giving everyone another chance to see it on the bigscreen as it hits theaters again this weekend. That means another batch of advertising for the film, which includes this incredible 90s-style commercial for a talking Birdman action figure. What kid woulcn’t want to hear Michael Keaton say “smells like balls” at the press of a button?

  • Disney Characters As Gritty New Yorkers

    Photographer Harry McNally was looking through some photos he took of New York’s gritty urbanscape when he noticed that each photo was telling a story. All that was needed was a character. And what better characters than the iconic Disney cartoons we all grew up with? We’re so used to seeing these characters in idyllic fairy-tale settings, that it’s jarring (and wildly entertaining) to see them slumming it up in the subway in McNally’s series “Moments Like These.” Check out more great photos from Harry McNally at It Feels Like Magic.

  • Photographer Captures Superheroes’ Private Lives

    Ever wonder what your favorite Marvel and DC superheroes do when they’re not out superheroing? Why? It’s none of your business, Mr. Nosey. But if you did wonder, Edy Hardjo has all the answers. Using action figures and a touch of digital manipulation, Edy shares what Hulk, Wolverine, Thor, and other popular superheroes do in their off time. How does Hulk trim his armpit hair? How does Tony Stark wash his Iron Man suit? Does Ghost Rider pee? All those questions and more can be answered at Hrjoe Photography on Facebook and Instagram.

  • New Meme Alert: Travolta’s Creepy Kiss

    Last year at the Oscars, we all felt bad for John Travolta when he couldn’t pronounce Idina Menzel’s name. It was awkward and live and we were very understanding about it. But John Travolta doesn’t want our pity. He wants us to fear him the way Christian Slater did in the 1996 classic Broken Arrow. How can we learn to fear the man who taught William Hurt how to enjoy life again in the 1996 classic Michael. Easy. By creeping out every woman at the Oscars last night with unnerving displays of affection. Of course, once PhotoshopBattles got a hold of the photos, Travolta again became the subject of much derision.

  • House Of Cards Gets The Sesame Street Treatment [Video]

    Sesame Street has been lampooning adult-oriented TV shows and confusing children for years with such parodies as “Birdwalk Empire,” “Homelamb,” “Desperate Houseplants,” and “True Mud,” but their latest might just be our favorite yet. Check out this brilliant retelling of the Three Little Pigs as a parody of Netflix’s House of Cards, complete with Frank Underwolf complaining about there being too much pork in town.

  • The “Mad Max: Fury Road” International Trailer Is The Craziest One Yet

    We are still a few months away from the US premiere of Mad Max: Fury Road on May 15 and the more we see of the movie, the harder it is to wait. The original trilogy, released between 1979 and 1985, featured Mel Gibson as Max in a post-apocalyptic wasteland where we faced off against gangs of marauders and their insane automobiles. Fury Road continues the saga, with Tom Hardy taking over for Gibson and Charlize Theron as Furiosa. Director George Miller, who has directed every film in the franchise, has already revealed that the script for the fifth installment is completed. That’s great, because we’d hate to have to wait for 30 years for another sequel.

  • The Secret Easter Egg That Disney and Pixar Have Been Hiding Right In Front Of Our Faces. If You’ve Never Noticed It, Here’s Proof.

    Have you ever noticed this suspicious code “A113″ that seems to appear in every Pixar film and also in popular cartoons and films throughout recent history, including on the license plate of Andy’s mom’s car in Toy Story? Here are all the places where the A113 easter egg can be seen and below you’ll learn about what it means.

  • Brother from Another Mother: Key and Peele’s Chameleon Comedy [Link]

    Comedy Central’s Key & Peele, which recently wrapped up the first half of its fourth season, is one of the biggest hits the channel has ever produced. The sketch comedy show has solidified Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele as comedic geniuses, featuring dozens of recurring characters deftly portrayed by the two funnymen. Now you can get to know the men behind the makeup and wigs in this in-depth profile from The New Yorker.

  • Michael Jordan Vs Martin And Charlie Sheen…For Some Reason [Video]

    By 1987, just two years into his NBA career, Michael Jordan had solidified himself as a basketball icon and everyone in the country, basketball fan or not, was becoming aware of the rising star. It only makes sense then that he would take on America’s other favorite basketball stars, Martin and Charlie Sheen. Oh wait, that’s right, the father and son duo are actors, not basketball stars. So is this just some sort of advertisement for Wall Street? And why is Eight Is Enough star Dick Van Patten calling the game? Damn, the 80s were weird.

  • Mind Exploding Footage From the SNL40 AfterPaty

    In New York, the week leading up to the weekend was dominated by NBA AllStar Game events, pre-game parties and pop-up shops. It was also New York City Fashion Week, which brought the likes of the world’s hottest fashion designers and models to the city. Mix a city of world class athletes, models, celebrities and designers together and you have yourself a perfect storm of absolute debauchery after hours. But even with all that star power, Sunday night was a truly historic moment for SNL. Celebrating their 40th anniversary, Saturday Night Live brought out all the stars. I mean all of them – Sir Paul McCartney, Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin, T. Swift, Kanye… the list is endless. They also brought back cast members that have parted ways completely with the show like Eddie Murphy and Adam Sandler. Murphy gave a touching 2 minute speech while Sandler brought back Opera Man. The old greats were also in the house – Steve Martin, Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Martin Short and Dan Akroid – which was no surprise, but what happened after the crowd gathered on the main stage and the saxophone stopped? Well the biggest stars on the planet got together for more »

  • These Colorful Barcodes Are Made Up Of Movie Frames

    Being an intensely visual medium, color is extremely important to film. The dominant colors of each scene can affect the mood of the scene or speak volumes about the characters onscreen. And the difference in colors from scene to scene is especially apparent when you can see every frame as a single image. These “movie barcodes” are just that, with each frame condensed into a single colorful image that resembles a barcode. And it’s incredible how effective these are. Anyone familiar with The Shining can tell exactly what’s going on in each sliver of the barcode (especially the red ones). Especially interesting is the vivid colors of contemporary films, such as Maleficent, where every frame can be tweaked to present the exact colors the filmmaker envisions. Check out more and order prints of your favorites at Moviebarcode.

  • Everyone Jason Kills In The “Friday The 13th” Series [Infographic]

    Happy Friday the 13th! What was once a day to be feared by overly-superstitious types became a day to celebrate the popularity of one of America’s biggest slasher franchises with disappointingly edited marathons of the “Friday the 13th” series on cable. They may have cut out all of the best parts (read: sex and nudity), but the death scenes are still mostly intact. Follow along with this handy infographic featuring all of Jason’s kills from the series, including the 2009 reboot. And if you’re wondering why the original film isn’t represented, you must be an idiot because everyone knows Jason’s mom was the murderer in that one.

  • Star Wars Vs. Star Trek Makes for An Epic Trailer [Video]

    Both the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises have such potential. The original Star Wars trilogy was one of the greatest adventure series of all time and pretty much everything Star Trek was enjoyable until “Enterprise.” But then we got the Star Wars prequels and the Star Trek reboots and were left underwhelmed. We hope to love the new Star Wars movies, but we’re not going to get our hopes up. Maybe one day, after a few more rounds of Hollywood mergers, we’ll be able to enjoy something like this “Star Wars VS Star Trek” trailer, but for now, we’ll just have to dream.

  • It’s Been 15 Years Since Leonardo DiCaprio Took a Risk on a Movie

    The good thing about movies with Leonardo DiCaprio is that you always know you’ll enjoy yourself. But considering he’s always working with big-name directors like Scorsese, this isn’t exactly surprising. So when did Leo, who made such exciting choices with his work in films like What’s Eating Gilbert Grape and The Basketball Diaries, start on his safe path? And will we ever see him take his risks again?
