    What is it about behind the scenes photos that’s just so intriguing? The concept of dramatic actors out of the characters we’re used to seeing them in is simply fascinating, that’s all there is to it.

  • Incredible Behind The Scenes Look At TARS From “Interstellar”

    These days directors can get their VFX crew to create the world they envision down to every last detail thanks to computers. With that in mind, it’s only natural for us to explain everything we see onscreen as nothing more than digital effects. So when a movie comes along and uses practical effects, it comes as a huge surprise. Especially when that movie is a sci-fi blockbuster like Interstellar, where we expect the entire movie to be created on computers. Check out how Bill Irwin, star of Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” music video, not only voiced TARS but operated the heavy, 200-pound hydraulic machinery that brought the robot to life.

  • The Stallone Kill Count Supercut Is Morbidly Impressive [Video]

    Last year a viral video hit showcasing every kill from Arnold Schwarzenegger and we were impressed (and perhaps a little disgusted). But how do you follow up such a video? Who could possibly compare to Arnold? Sylvester Stallone, of course! The star of the increasingly violent Rambo series puts even Arnold to shame. We won’t give away any numbers, but to give you an idea, the Arnold video was 28 minutes long whereas Stallone’s is 34. That’s a lot of senseless violence.

  • Derek Zoolander And Hansel Return To The Runway For Paris Fashion Week [15 Photos]

    It has been 14 years since Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson showed us the hilarious world of male modeling as Derek Zoolander and Hansel in Zoolander and we were starting to believe we’d never see those characters again. After all, who waits that long between sequels? Well, except Dumb and Dumber. And Ghostbusters. And Aliens. Alright, we were fools to doubt the rumors of a sequel. Especially since Stiller and Wilson just appeared in character on the runway. During the Valentino Autumn/Winter 2014 show at Paris Fashion Week, Stiller and Wilson reprised their roles as the two biggest names in male modeling and hit the runway. Does this mean that the characters are heading back to modeling after leaving the catwalk behind to start the The Derek Zoolander Center for Kids Who Can’t Read Good and Wanna Learn to Do Other Stuff Good Too? We’ll have to wait and see. Stiller says screenwriter Justin Theroux has completed a script and the stars have been meeting to iron it all out, with an expected release of February 2016.

  • A New(er) Ghostbusters Reboot is in The Works With A Male-Dominated Cast

    A few weeks back news of an all-female remake of the classic film Ghostbusters was announced staring Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy. Well now, original writers Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd have formed a new production company under Sony called Ghost Corps and have announced a 2017 reboot of the ’80s movie only this continuation of our beloved film will feature a male-centric cast, with Channing Tatum already signed on. Don’t ruin this for me Hollywood. Stay tuned for more info.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Lebron, Bill Hader & Amy Schumer Costar in New Apatow RomCom, ‘Trainwreck’

    So the movie looks okay. Girl hates monogamy, girl finds guy, girl falls for guy, guy is a sports doctor and best friends with LeBron James. Yup, you heard that right LeBron James is co-staring in a movie alongside Amy Schumer and Bill Hader… and he’s actually funny, in fact he steals the trailer. Kid’s got talent. the film is written by Amy Schumer in her debut starring role, and co-written and directed by Judd Apatow. Also staring Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, Colin Quinn, Barkhad Abdi, Mike Birbiglia, Jon Glaser, Vanessa Bayer, John Cena, Ezra Miller, Method Man, Jim Norton and Norman Lloyd.

  • This Was the Only Super Bowl Ad that Wasn’t Lame as…

    With 2014 being unofficially dubbed the year of #outrage, Super Bowl ads definitely dulled down any shred of controversy we’ve become accustomed to seeing on Super Bowl Sunday. It’s always nice to see a feel good commercial, but a half ass attempt at funny targeted at an audience who’s completely numb to shock value already is a recipe for disappointment. If one good thing came out of yesterday’s billion dollar ad day, it was the latest trailer for Jurassic World, trained raptors, hybrid carnivores and so many people being eaten. In case you missed it, here it is.

  • Disney Is Reportedly Targeting Chris Pratt To Be The Next Indiana Jones

    Chris Pratt is quickly taking over the cinematic world. He’s already a part of several major franchises — the Jurassic Park series, Guardians of the Galaxy — he’s soon to start work on The Magnificent Seven remake with Denzel Washington and Antoine Fuqua, and now it’s being rumored that Pratt is possibly being courted by Disney to become the next Indiana Jones.

  • Movie Theater Etiquette PSAs From The Silent Era

    We like to think that 100 years ago, people were better behaved and everyone was polite to each other. Or at least, that’s how old folks always explained it. But it’s just not true. Jerks have always been around and they’ll continue to be around until the end of time. And apparently the jerks at movie theaters in the 1910s would hoot and holler and smoke cigarettes while watching the latest Harold Lloyd romp. And, most egregious of all, those jerks wouldn’t even remove their old-timey straw boater hats. Oh, and they applauded with something other than their hands. We’re still confused about that one.

  • Artist Creates Neon Signs For Famous Fictional Businesses [9 GIFs]

    Boston-based artist and designer Alejandro Smal has decided to help out famous fictional businesses with their advertising by creating these great neon signs. Each GIF showcases a business from a movie, such as Terminator’s Cyberdine, or TV show, such as Breaking Bad’s Better Call Saul and A1A Car Wash. To be honest, we can’t really see most of those gigantic, evil conglomerates advertising via neon signs, but Saul Goodman’s fits him quite well. Be sure to check out more work from Alejandro at Behance.

  • Brutally Honest Posters For Oscar Nominated Films

    The Oscar nominations have been announced, and now is the time to rush out and catch up on these critically-acclaimed films you’ve never heard of. But all too often, the movie titles and posters give you zero information on what you’re getting into. The Shiznit has come to the rescue with these honest movie posters for 13 of this year’s nominees and one for the movie that got no love but deserves all the awards (Fury!). I’ll be honest, I had no intention of seeing Foxcatcher but there’s no way I’m going to miss Wrestle Mania.

  • David Fincher Still Can’t Come Up With An Original Property; Announces Hitchcock Remake With Ben Affleck

    Poor David Fincher. For a director with such a distinctive style, he sure has a problem coming up with original properties. In fact, every movie he’s directed since Panic Room in 2002 has been based on a book or a true story. So what does he decide to tackle after transforming best-selling novel Gone Girl into a blockbuster film? An original thriller a la Se7en? Nah. He’s going to remake a Hitchcock film. Because that always goes over well. Fincher has announced that he will reteam with Ben Affleck, who we recently proved to be the greatest director of the last decade, and Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn to remake Alfred Hitchcock’s 1951 classic Strangers on a Train. Our guess is that it will be a dark film, true to the spirit of the original, unlike the last time it was remade, as the 1987 comedy Throw Momma from the Train. Fincher and Flynn are making some changes, though, calling their film Strangers and moving the action from a train to a plane. Undoubtedly, it will be another solid movie form Fincher, and hopefully its success will give him the confidence to maybe take a risk at some point in more »

  • Pixar Characters With Tommy Lee Jones Eyes Are Depressing

    It seems like Tommy Lee Jones has always been a crotchety old man. Even in roles 20 and 30 years ago, when he was a fairly young man, he still came off as a cantankerous old coot. It’s probably because of his eyes. He’s got the disappointed gaze of an Oscar-nominated actor whose highest-grossing movie was Men in Black 3 (oh wait). He is basically the antithesis of the optimistic protagonists of Pixar movies. So when those characters are given Tommy Lee Jones eyes, it’s just sad. So very, very sad.

  • Larry David Lynch Is Our New Favorite Tumblr

    The surreal creations of filmmaker David Lynch, such as Eraserhead and Twin Peaks, are visually stunning works where seemingly normal characters live in a most bizarre world. Larry David, on the other hand, created over-the-top characters involved in the most normal of situations in TV’s Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm. So it makes plenty of sense to combine Larry David’s dialogue with David Lynch’s visuals. Plus their names fit together well. Keep up with our new favorite Tumblr at Larry David Lynch.

  • A Clockwork Orange Recreated In Grand Theft Auto [Video]

    Long before people with nothing better to do complained about the sex and violence portrayed in video games such as the Grand Theft Auto series, they complained about the sex and violence (and ultraviolence) in films such as Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. With that in mind, it’s only fitting that iconic scenes of Alex and his droogs from that film have been recreated using Grand Theft Auto graphics. Now if only someone will recreate the entire movie…

  • Long Lost Drawings From The Set Of 2001: A Space Odyssey

    When Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey premiered in 1968, it was like nothing anyone had seen before. With its deep, philosophical story, 2001 proved that space films could be more than B-movie fare with green-faced martians and toy ray guns. Of course, ever the visionary, Kubrick knew that he was making a classic all through the film’s production, which is why he insisted on hiring two artists rather than photographers to document the production. Whereas photographers usually capture photos before or after filming, artists could draw the action as it occurred. One of the artists hired in 1966 was 29-year-old Brian Sanders. His incredibly detailed drawings remained unpublished for over 30 years before being uncovered by The Independent Magazine in January of 2001.

  • David Cross To Release New Film As BitTorrent Bundle

    Comedian David Cross is making some interesting and innovative choices when it comes to the distribution of his directorial debut Hits. The comedy, featuring Matt Walsh, Amy Sedaris, and Michael Cera, premiered at Sundance last year and will be available as a pay-what-you-want BitTorrent Bundle beginning February 13. The service allows content creators to make money while taking advantage of BitTorrents’ bandwidth-saving method of distribution. But that’s not his only plan. David Cross was the first investor in Kickstarter, so naturally he is using the crowd funding platform to aid with theater distribution. Cross is hoping his campaign will raise $100,000 in order to distribute the film to 50 markets. Check out the trailer below and see if Hits is worth supporting.

  • Concept Art From The “Toy Story 3″ Disney Tried To Make Without Pixar

    When negotiations broke down between Disney CEO Michael Eisner and Pixar CEO Steve Jobs in 2004, Pixar announced they were looking for a new distributor. Disney, who owned the rights to the characters Pixar created while the two were partners, opted to create their own computer animation division, Circle 7, to work on sequels for Pixar-created franchises. Toy Story 3 was to be the first Disney-produced sequel. Circle 7 devised a story in which Buzz malfunctions and must be sent back to Taiwan for repairs. But when his fellow toys learn that there has been a Buzz Lightyear recall, they venture to Taiwan to save Buzz from destruction. Ultimately, we were all saved from this inferior film when Disney and Pixar reached an agreement, resulting in Disney taking ownership of Pixar and dissolving Circle 7.

  • “The Interview” Joins the Ranks of These Banned or Restricted Movies [Link]

    All of Hollywood was in an uproar last week when the big theater chains backed out of showing The Interview. As much as George Clooney and other celebrity busybodies wanted to believe this was an unprecedented move and a sure path to censorship of stoner comedies yet-to-come, the fact is that Hollywood and governments have been banning or restricting movies pretty much since the medium was invented.

  • Behind the Magic: The Visual Effects of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” [Video]

    Industrial Light & Magic, the company set up by George Lucas almost 40 years ago to create the visual effects for Star Wars, is still one of the best effects houses in the industry. As movies rely more and more on computer-generated effects for explosive action sequences, its up to these effects experts to translate the director’s vision onto the footage that is often little more than a couple people in front of a green screen. For Captain America: The Winter Soldier, ILM contributed 900 effects shots, mostly in the third act. Take a look at how a green screen became the helicarrier’s underwater hanger in this highlight reel and gain a newfound appreciation for these incredible artists.

  • This Marvel Vs DC Movie Needs To Be Made [Video]

    It used to be so easy. Movies based on comic book characters were awful and it was no problem ignoring them. But then Iron Man and Nolan’s Batman trilogy came along and showed us everything comic book movies could be. Now we’ve got about 637 movies based on Marvel and DC properties coming out in the next few years. They should just save us time and cmbine all the characters into one giant amalgamated movie. But in a world where Marvel’s characters are owned by three different studios, a movie like that has zero chance of existing. At least we have this awesome trailer.
