Woody Harrelson and James Marsden star in the upcoming film Shock and Awe. The film is based on the true events of the Knight Ridder journalists "who were the only ones who 'got it right' in the lead-up to the 2003 Iraq War when they questioned the true nature of the Bush White House’s justification for the conflict."
Remember when the White House was selling America on the idea that Iraq was harboring weapons of mass destruction and then it turned out that it wasn't true? Well, this is the film that will tell that story. Well, at least the Hollywood version of that story, and Harrelson and Marsden will play the journalists.
The movie was directed by Rob Reiner (The Princess Bride, Misery, A Few Good Men, Stand By Me) and also co-stars Tommy Lee Jones. Reiner is a great filmmaker and this looks like it could be a solid film!
Shock and Awe will play exclusively on DIRECTV from June 14th to July 11th, before opening in theaters July 13, 2018.
Frank Oz gets a lot of love for being the man behind Yoda in Star Wars, but it actually took four people to get that little green guy looking realistic! Dave Barclay would know as he was one of those four, and was also one of the guys inside Jabba The Hutt as well! Learn more about his story and what it's like to be a professional puppeteer below:
I can't even imagine the amount of work that went into this, but I'm thankful the work was put into it all the same. If you're someone who has a love for 90s Gameboy games but also classic cinema, then you're going to love what The Hat Loving Gamer did to The Shawshank Redemption. Watching this video made me want to seek out a classic copy of Pokemon and start my adventure all over again, although I'm not sure if I have enough time these days to make it to the Elite 4. Anyway, check out the video below, and let us know what you think of this work of art!:
Cosplayers are constantly making their own props for their costumes. Some people like to modify toys to make something a bit more dangerous. This guy is known for the latter, but this time he’s made a prop that works more like a toy which is great news for cosplayers. Joerg Sprave has built his own version of Rey’s blaster from the new Star Wars trilogy that will fire a projectile that mimics blaster bolts without getting cosplayers into trouble: glow sticks. Break the glow stick, load it into the chamber, and you’ve got a homemade blaster bolt. Check out the video below to see it in action, and he even gives you some information on how it is designed, so you could potentially make your own.
If you're looking for an interview of two experts talking about monsters and science-fiction, you'd be hard pressed to find better experts than James Cameron and Guillermo Del Toro. Del Toro appeared on James Cameron's AMC series Story Of Science Fiction and talked about a ton of interesting stuff that could fill an entire series! Check out Del Toro talk about a lot of things (including his experience with a UFO) below and watch James Cameron's Story Of Science Fiction Mondays at 10:00 p.m. ET.
It's hard to imagine Terry Crews hasn't been in a superhero film prior to Deadpool 2, but it's true. When asked why/how that managed to happen, Crews' answer was rather simple. There not enough black superheroes to go around, and if he were to get into a role, it had to be just right. Crews talked about how Reynolds convinced him to take the role, and talked a bit more about Bedlam in the video below:
Avengers: Infinity War has generated a lot of memes and GIFs, just as most other big blockbuster movies. However, I may have just found one of my new favorites. This is a GIF set that combines Avengers and The Bachelor as Captain America, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, Star-Lord all talk about why they should end up with Iron Man in the end. All the GIFs are in an interview setting a la The Bachelor and the reasons they give are great. Who should Tony end up with? Vote now in the comments below!
Avengers: Infinity War is out now. You can see the original post on Tumblr.
Tiny magnets are one of the most amazing toys you can play with. Unfortunately they're often something small children and dogs ingest and mess up their insides with so we don't keep them in the house. For that reason I'm vicariously living through this guy who made an Infinity Gauntlet out of 25,000 of these bad boys. Check it out below, and wonder just how much money they dropped to get that many magnets!
People are cracking up on Reddit today after it was revealed that James Cameron's director's cut of The Abyss has a pretty hilarious film error some editors missed. The scene in question features a full beach of people awaiting a massive tidal wave, except one dude is more concerned about embarrassing his buddy by pantsing him than looking scared for the scene. Check out the scene in the bottom left corner, and then laugh your ass off as others scramble to find a copy of the film:
It’s always fun to see how movies will use the Internet to promote themselves. Venom has decided to let people fuse with the symbiote, sort of. You can head to We Are Venom, take a picture or upload a picture, and then half of your face will be covered by the symbiote. Here’s an example:
Yes, that’s me. As you can tell they have a heavy blur on the side of your face which makes it hard (in my opinion) for the picture to actually look good, but it’s still a fun little promotional tool. Go ahead and make your own and remember, we are Venom.
