The photos mainly focus on the mechanical shark that was rumored to malfunction quite often during filming forcing Steven Spielberg to add, the now infamous, ominous tune to mark the shark’s entry into the scene. Among the photos are shots of cast and crew during filming and toying with the animatronic beast.

  • Pogo Has Created A Hypnotic Song Using Harry Potter Dialogue [Video]

    Australian electronic music wunderkind first came to prominence in 2007 with a hypnotic track composed of sound clips from Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Since then he has created dozens of impressive songs using sounds clips from popular children’s movies. His most recent track revisits the Harry Potter films, which he famously used in his drum and bass track “Alohamora” in 2009. This new mix mostly utilizes dialogue from the character of Hermione, portrayed by Emma Watson in the films, and features an equally impressive video created by Jeesh.

  • Bill Hader Delivers Spot on Impressions of his Ex-SNL Cast Mates

    Bill Hader is one of SNL’s most revered cast members over the past decade, bringing to light some of the best characters like Stefan and Devin (The Californians) while also being the best impressionist the show has seen since the says of Darryl Hammond. Last night on Conan he got a little nostalgic and talked about what he missed most from the show. Hader then goes into how all the cast members would impersonate each other and what he thinks of most is Fred Armisen doing an impersonation of him, then he goes on to do some Armisen, Kristen Wiig and Jason Sudakis impressions.

  • An Entire Episode Of Wheel Of Fortune Can Be Edited Down To 3 Minutes [Video]

    Wheel of Fortune is a great show to watch, as long as you’re a child or are braindead. But for everyone else, there’s nothing worse than when Jeopardy ends and you can’t find your remote and you have to see more than a few seconds of Wheel of Fortune. Unless you live in one of the markets where Wheel is first, in which case it’s equally bad when you tune in too early and have to watch Pat and Vanna banter about some inanity as the credits roll. Listening to people tell stupid stories about their families or failing to grasp the rules of the game after 30 years (you have to buy vowels, dummies!!) is pure torture, but the game itself is just fine. That’s why we enjoy this video that edits a complete episode down to a very watchable 3 minutes. It even includes all the “Bankrupt” spins so you can still enjoy the contestants’ misery.

  • We Love These 10 Album Covers As Animated GIFs

    We’ve seen animated album covers before, and they were really great, but these are on another level. The artist, JB, originally created them just for himself for fun, but after amassing a huge collection, he put them up on Tumblr for all the world to enjoy. And judging by the many of the album covers he chose, he’s a fan of the great 90s punk from Fat Wreck Chords and Epitaph. Check out the rest at JB’s Tumblr where you can even make a request.

  • Remember Those 80s and 90s Style Game of Thrones Drawings? These Cosplayers Brought Them To Life [13 Photos]

    We’re huge fans of Mike Wrobel of Moshi Studio and have shared his 80s and 90s style reimagining of Game of Thrones characters both here and here. As much as we admired the artwork, we never thought we’d see real life versions of the characters. But we were wrong. Prop and costume designer Kuiosikle Industries has taken the drawings from Moshi Studio and transformed them into these brilliant cosplay outfits that appeared Dragon Con 2013 and 2014. Now we just hope they find a model suitable to portray Tyrion.

  • We Want These Vinyl Figures Of Bill Murray

    UK-based A Large Evil Corporation has produced numerous animated television advertisements, but their talent doesn’t end there. Recently they have also been creating incredible vinyl figures based on popular UK TV shows, like “The Office” and “The IT Crowd” and movies, such as “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz.” But best of all, they have made three figures of everyone’s favorite actor Bill Murray, featuring his characters from “The Life Aquatic,” “Zombieland,” and, best of all, Big Ern McCracken from “Kingpin.” No doubt it, A Large Evil Corporation is on a gravy train with biscuit wheels. For more info and to keep up with new figures, check out their blog and Facebook.

  • An Interesting take on What Your Drink Choice Says About You

    Everyone has their go-to drink. The drink that dry-heaves out of your mouth when you panic after waiting 15 minutes and being caught off guard by the mixologist who reigns judgement upon you after hesitating your order for 5 seconds. Yeah, that drink. Well the minute you blurt out said drink, you’re now being judged and stereotyped by everyone around you. No pressure next time you blurt out “vodka cran” at a dimly lit mixology bar.

  • The Definitive Liam Neeson Movie Kill Map

    Liam Neeson is no stranger to fictionally taking a life with his bare hands or gun or papal sword or lightning bolt, but just how many people has the action star of this generation actually murdered on screen? eONe, the distributor for Neeson’s newest film, A Walk Among the Tombstones, has released a “Kill Map” highlighting the locations and method for everyone of Liam’s murders, even including his other worldly kills from Star Wars Episode I and Chronicles of Narnia. One can only hope Hasbro makes a special edition Liam Neeson Clue in the near future; I guess Liam Neeson, in Istanbul with the piano wire.

  • Millennium Falcon Teaser Featuring…The Batmobile? [Video]

    As much as we’d like to hate on Star Wars for the prequel trilogy and endless reworkings of the originally trilogy, we are still excited for the new movies from JJ Abrams. They could be the worst movies ever made, and we’ll still see them all in the theater just like everyone else in the world. And seeing this teaser video of Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon makes us wish it was December 2015. But it isn’t and we still have more than a year to wait for the finished product. At least we can expect more of these teasers along the way. Hey, is that the Batmobile?

  • Watch The Ninja Turtles Scar These Kids For Life [Video]

    So of you younger folks may not remember, but in the early days of Oprah Winfrey’s talk show career, long before she interviewed a hysterical Tom Cruise or gave away cars to everyone in the audience, she was just as inane and trashy as any other talk show host. To compete with the Neo-Nazi hookers on Sally Jesse Raphael, Oprah needed guests just as gimmicky, so when the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hit the road on their “Coming Out Of Their Shells” tour, they were the perfect guests. And naturally, the questions would lead to the possibility of sexual relations between April and her turtle buds. Oh yeah, and there were kids in the audience who were suddenly forced to grow up way too soon. For shame, Oprah.

  • Michael Che Joins ‘SNL Weekend Update’ as First Black Co-Anchor

    This season will be nothing short of a historic one for the cast of Saturday Night Live, acquiring Michael Che from the Daily show and throwing him front and center, behind the Weekend Update desk along side Colin Jost. The former Daily Show correspondent will be the first African-American cast member to be a Weekend Update anchor and also the first co-anchor to be part of a two man duo.

  • Ducktales Theme Sung By Your Favorite Movie Characters [Video]

    This week, everyone has been making a big stink about Disney’s video of a bunch of ducks reenacting the opening sequence to DuckTales. But was the video really that good? The ducks just clumsily walked into chintzy props, there were no Beagle Boys, and, most egregious of all, the ducks didn’t even sing the theme song. This video, featuring classic movie characters like Howard the Duck, Ace Ventura, and Little Nicky, is much more impressive. Although it still suffers a lack of Beagle Boys.

  • Ferris Bueller And Other Movies Recreated With LEGO [11 Photos]

    Each year, a group of Swedish LEGO enthusiasts called Swebrick hold a design contest. Each year has a different theme and this year’s was movie or television vehicles. The winner of this year’s competition was Etzel, who recreated the iconic 1961 Ferrari GT California Spyder from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off complete with bewildered Ferris, Sloane, and Cameron staring in disbelief as the car flies out the window. It’s pretty impressive and definitely deserved to win, but check out some of the other entries below, too.

  • 14 Photos from the Simpsons-Family Guy Crossover Episode

    Mark your calendars, Sept. 28th will be a night of anticipation, confusion and hysteria, when the Griffins of Quahog find themselves amongst yellow beings of Springfield. It looks as the Peter and his family befriend Homer and his family, at least until a wrench is thrown in the gears and sets the families off against each other. Lisa befriends Meg and try and land on something Meg is good at, Obviously Marge and Louis hit it off, Stewie takes a serious liking to Bart, Maggie and Chris share a few interests, Brian and Santa’s lil’ helper couldn’t be farther from friends and Homer and Peter hit it off, until they scuffle over beer choices. Not much else is known about the episode, but we can expect enough satire to make Seth McFarlane’s head implode. Images via: Mashable

  • Groundbreaking Tom Waits Cartoon From 1979 To Be Restored [Video]

    Tom Waits, the gravelly-voiced musician who dresses like a 1930s skid row inhabitant and sings like Rowlf from The Muppets, was the star of a 1979 animated short titled Tom Waits For No One. The cartoon was actually rotoscoped, meaning Tom Waits and a dancer were filmed interacting while he performed “The One That Got Away” from his 1976 album Small Change and then animators drew over the live action footage, resulting in realistic, fluid movement from the characters. This same technique would be employed by Ralph Bakshi in his 1981 hit film American Pop. What makes Tom Waits For No One especially noteworthy is the crew who would go on to become huge stars in the animation world. Director John Lamb went on to win an Academy Award for his innovative Lyon Lamb Video Animation System, which allowed for pre-testing animation art before it’s committed to film, in 1980. Animator David Silverman was the first animator on The Simpsons back when it was still a short on The Tracey Ullman Show. Character designer Keith Newton went to work for Disney, doing character design and backgrounds for Pocahontas. Inker Michael Cressey became a children’s book author and was twice awarded more »

  • Historical Photos Transformed Into Bizarre GIFs

    New York-based artist Kevin Weir has spent the last few years on a Tumblr project known as flux machine. Using historical photos from the Library of Congress Flickr account, Weird transforms portraits of world leaders of yesteryear into bizarre monsters that look like something out of HP Lovecraft’s nightmares. World War I battlefields become scenes of sci-fi destruction. And perhaps most shockingly, John Philip Sousa’s hat becomes different types of hats. 3 years into the absurd project, Weir still occasionally updates the Tumblr. Check it out along with the rest of his work at Kevin J Weir.

  • Your Favorite Musicians Are Being Turned Into Simpsons Figurines

    You would think that people would be sick of The Simpsons after the 12-day marathon, but let’s face it, we all watched it and loved every minute of it. If anything, the 25th anniversary celebration has renewed interest in the series that most of us grew up and began to neglect years ago. While our short-attention spans are focused on Springfield, a special series of toys (or action figures for you Comic Book Guy-types) will be released featuring yellow, four-fingered versions of popular guest stars over the years, including many musicians. Check out some of the Simpson-ized celebs below and get them while you can at Toys”R”Us. Looking at these figures, all I can think is how unfortunate it is that Bill Berry left REM before he could be immortalized in cartoon and toy form.

  • What Kid Wouldn’t Want A Nicolas Cage Activity Book?

    What is it about Nic Cage that makes him the Internet’s favorite movie star? Is it the Oscar-worthy meltdowns you can expect in almost every film? Or the bizarre speech patterns that add nothing to the character but are incredibly annoying? Or the fact that he doesn’t seem to turn down any role presented to him? Yes. All of those. Nicolas Cage is both the worst and the best at the same time and we love him for it. Now you can spread your love of Nicolas Cage to the children in your life with Snake Eyes: A Nicolas Cage Activity Book from Haunt Me Studio. Help bust him out of prison in a Con Air maze. Or draw a new face for him after John Travolta steals his. All this fun and more can be found in the book, available in November, which you can preorder at Amazon for $10.

  • Watch The American Horror Story Freak Show Trailer. Its… Freaky

    The first trailer for American Horror Story: Freak Show is finally here. Set to the awesome tone of “Carousel” by Melanie Martinez, the camera runs through the back stage of a carnival, panning to the likes of Kathy Bates as the bearded lady and Michael Chickless as the strong man as well as some interesting surprises. Looks like the gang will be made up of a cast with deformities mostly and we’re sure Jessica Lang has a little secret of her own. Ryan Murphy hasn’t disappointed in three seasons of AHS and we’re sure this season will keep us on the tips of our tails for the whole ride.

  • 21 Behind The Scenes Photos Of Classic Hollywood Stars

    Photographer Bob Willoughby got his big break in 1954 when Warner Brothers hired him to photograph Judy Garland for Life Magazine. He continued working for the studio, becoming the first outside photographer employed to document the production of classic films. For the next 20 years, he captured intimate portraits of Hollywood icons on set and behind the scenes. At the same time, he also documented jazz during its heyday, photographing such stars as Miles Davis and Chet Baker. Willoughby’s work can currently be seen at London’s Beetles+Huxley Gallery, where you can view more of the collection and order prints.

  • Allison Williams Undercover As Peter Pan In Brooklyn; Fits Right In

    In J.M. Barrie’s classic story of Peter Pan, Peter lives his eternal childhood in Neverland with his ragtag group of Lost Boys. Together they dress in silly costumes, abuse the adults who are just trying to do their jobs (piracy is a job, you know), and recruit more spoiled children to follow suit. In July, actress Allison Williams, daughter of NBC’s rapping newsman Brian Williams and star of HBO’s Girls, announced she would portray Peter Pan in NBC’s production of Peter Pan Live! The special is airing in December, but to get a feel for the part, Williams, complete with pixie cut and silly costume, spent time in New York’s very own Neverland…Brooklyn! We have the exclusive photos of Williams dressed as Peter Pan on the streets of Brooklyn’s hippest neighborhoods, surrounded by very real Lost Boys paying her no mind. Whether grabbing a slice at Roberta’s or catching a show (while eating vegan food (of course)) at Pine Box, nobody seemed to notice the cute girl dressed like she was employed as a thieving urchin by Fagin. And with some of Brooklyn’s Lost Boys pushing 40 yet still complaining to their parents on their brand new smartphones that their rent more »

  • Game of Thrones Title Sequence As A 60s TV Show [Video]

    Back in April, YouTube darlings (and all-around incredible performers) Postmodern Jukebox teamed up with sax player Dave Koz to record the “game of Thrones” theme as a smooth, west coast cool jazz song. The result was a hep chart that would make Paul Desmond proud, but it was missing an appropriate title sequence. That time has now arrived. Fix yourself a Manhattan and check out this GOT intro that will have you yearning for the days when you could refer to a woman as a tomato and people would know what the hell you meant by it.

  • THE MAJOR CHARACTERS AND THEMES OF EVERY SIMPSONS EPISODE [Infographic]

    If you’ve watched TV at all in the last 9 days, chances are you’ve watched a few (hundred) episodes of The Simpsons. After a few days of binging, you probably noticed how certain themes repeat themselves every few seasons. Beutler Ink decided to graph how often a “Sideshow Bob” or “Simpsons on the Go” themed episode occur and presented their findings in this oddly captivating infographic. If you’re a Simpsons snob, you may have some issues with how the themes of the episodes were decided, but there’s a thorough description of the process at The Ink Tank.

  • 21 GIFs To Remember Kari Byron

    When “MythBusters” premiered in 2003, it was like nothing on TV. The science shows we had watched as kids, like “Mr. Wizard’s World,” “Beakman’s World,” and “Billy Nye The Science Guy,” had finally grown up. Gone were the acid-base volcanoes, replaced with exploding toilets and guns that shot frozen chickens. It was the beginning of the movement that turned science into something we all fucking love. We didn’t think it could get any better. Then it did. Season 2 introduced the build team of builder Tory Bellecci, metal-worker Scottie Chapman, and, most importantly, artist Kari Byron. This team would also perform outrageous experiments, made all the better with the inclusion of a plucky redhead. Sex appeal knows no bounds, not even in the lab, and Kari attracted even more attention to the hit show. She was smart, funny, and looked good firing a gun. Nerds the world over were smitten. Alas, nothing lasts forever. Yesterday it was announced that Tory, Grant (who replaced Scottie in the third season), and even our beloved Kari would not be returning to the show. “MythBusters” were going in a “new direction.” We’re sure Kari and the rest of the build team will find success, more »

  • Ice-T Joined An All-Star Cast In Narrating A Dungeons & Dragons Book

    The fantasy world of Dungeons & Dragons, encompassing numerous games and books, celebrates it’s 40th birthday this year, but chances are that you, a Level 10 Cool Dude, had no idea. For so many years, it seemed like the people interested in Dungeons & Dragons, or D&D, were the sort of people who carried tarot cards in velvet satchels in middle school converted to Wicca in high school. But, as nerd culture becomes increasingly usurped by trendsetters, thanks to the success of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and Tumblrs featuring bikini-clad babes wearing stormtrooper helmets, D&D-ers can now be found in many cliques. To celebrate the anniversary of D&D while also highlighting the mainstream-ing of nerd culture, Audible has released The Legend of Drizzt: The Collected Stories, featuring an all-star cast of narrators. Nerd icons such as Weird Al, David Duchovny, and Wil Wheaton read the stories but are also joined by celebrities you may not expect, such as rapper Ice-T and Michael Chiklis of The Shield. Check out the making-of video below and if you’re ready to dive in to the world of D&D, get your free copy of The Legend of Drizzt at Audible. And if anyone asks more »

  • #TBT Saturday Morning In 1994

    Now that you’re all grown up, Saturday mornings no longer exist to you. Chances are you don’t even wake up until Saturday afternoon, lest you begin to suffer a hangover caused by Friday night’s debauchery. Or maybe you don’t have weekends off and Saturday morning is just as depressingly boring as any weekday morning. But think back to when you were a kid. Saturday mornings were the greatest! You would wake up late, knowing you didn’t have to go to school, then sit in front of the TV all morning until the clock struck 12 and boring local news would come on. Then it was time to get on your bike and go to Blockbuster to rent a VHS or SNES game so you could return to your spot in front of the TV and bask in it’s CRT glow for the rest of the weekend. Many of us had cable in those days, but most cable stations ran infomercials all morning, so your choices were the 4 networks—ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox. NBC would show Saved by the Bell and similar knock-offs like Hang Time. CBS had a bunch of Disney cartoons. ABC had an ever changing rotation of throwaways more »

  • Watch The First Teaser for ‘Breaking Bad’ Spin-off ‘Better Call Saul’

    Last night, AMC gave us a little taste of Saul. During AMC’s Breaking Bad marathon which showed over the weekend the 9-second teaser aired. The new Breaking Bad spinoff is set to air February 2015 and will star Saul Goodman under the name James M. McGill, an Irish identity he used before switching to the infamous lawyer we all fell in love with during the Breaking Bad franchise. The ethically ambiguous Goodman teases a client with this quote before AMC headlines take over, “Lawyers. We’re like health insurance,” says Saul in the incredibly brief teaser for the upcoming series. “You hope you never need it, but man-oh-man, not having it? No.”

  • Sudakis as ‘Coach Lasso’ is Back… With Tim Howard

    Jason Sudakis’s beloved Coach Ted Lasso is back with a 6-minute promo for NBC sports as he takes on the role of on air personality for the English Premier League. Things you’ll find in this video; the beautiful Rebecca Lowe, a reference to Lavar Burton from Star Trek, Tim Howard drinking beer and a brilliant scheme to murder soccer referees. Thanks Ted!

  • Watch Lifetime’s ‘Saved by the Bell’ Movie Footage You Didn’t Know You Needed to See

    From the outside Bayside High looked like the quintessential high school every ’80s baby wished they went to. The nerds hung out with the jocks and the jocks hung out with the smooth talking ‘Ferris Bueller’ type, who in turn took advice from the nerd. A formula of pure bliss, but from the looks of this ‘unauthorized Saved By The Bell’ Life time movie, that wasn’t the case on set. From this teaser, Lisa was jealous of Kelly, Kelly just wanted to be the center of attention and Jesse was the sane one?… Now it’s starting to sound more like high school. Can’t wait for the high school drama between actors to heat up again once this airs.
