Making Movies is Fun: Tom Hiddleston’s Email to Joss Whedon About the Avengers Script

Published by under Images,Movies

making movies

This is one of those viral things I’m not 100% sure is true, but it’s just better to believe it is because that makes everyone happy. The above is a delightfully cheerful email from Tom Hiddleston sent to Joss Whedon the first time he read the Avengers script and realized that Loki was going to get to be the coolest superpowered villain in movie history. I never really thought of Loki as Hans Gruber, but now that he says that, I can totally see it. Though I don’t know who James Mason is.

Whedon responded in a much shorter email below, which is just as heartwarming in its own way.

Does anyone have an email Patrick Stewart sent to Brett Ratner after reading X-Men: The Last Stand. “Dude, wtf is this shit.” Continue Reading »

Actors With Their Younger Selves

Published by under Images

Is there anything photoshop can’t do? Today’s experiment in weirdness comes as someone has taken the liberty of combining modern day celebrities with their past selves, either from a few years ago, or all the way to childhood like young Christian Bale here.

The result is as strange as you might expect, and you can see how much, or how little certain stars have aged. And how terrible everyone’s hair was in the ’90s.

Check out the full gallery below: Continue Reading »

Another Pair of Golden Books

Published by under Images,Video Games

golden2

I cannot escape the Jo3bot it seems. We featured two more of his Golden Books yesterday, but now here’s another pair, this time video game themed. He’s taken Halo and The Last of Us and transformed them into kid-friendly titles. That’s especially impressive, given how brutally violent the latter is. But with his style of makeover, it looks ready to be read to three year-olds.

Check out the other cover below, and who knows what tomorrow will bring? The guy has his own gallery show coming up. Continue Reading »

Next Level Pokemon Fusion

Published by under Images,Video Games

One of my favorite things we’ve featured here on the site has been the Pokemon fusion generator, which lets you combine 8-bit sprites of Pokemon with one another to often hilarious results.

Well, one fan took that idea to the next level, and has come up with detailed illustrations of what exactly the most badass combinations of Pokemon would look like, using ones from all the different generations.

If you’re a gen 1/2 fan like me, some of these may escape you, but they are pretty incredible nonetheless. See the rest of Josephine’s work below: Continue Reading »

Cosplay of the Day: Rocketta Raccoon

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Movies

raccoon

We’ve already seen our first bit of Guardians of the Galaxy crossplay with a female Star Lord, but determined not to be outdone, one SDCC cosplayer decided to make Rocket Raccoon a girl, and photographer David Ngo caught her on film.

So, when do we see female Groot and Drax, or better yet, male Gamora? I’m guessing we will lay eyes on all of them at one point or another, knowing the world of cosplay

Words can’t express how excited I am for this movie on Friday.

More Books From Jo3bot

Published by under Images,Movies,Television

Artist extraordinaire Jo3bot is back with another pair of kids book covers. Based on the famed Golden Books we all read as kids, this time he’s taken Ninja Turtles and Kill Bill and turned them into rather adorable covers.

The Bride is below, and I just now noticed he makes them all “A Little Mutagen Book” or “A Little Hanzo Book” depending on the topic. And the same goes for the symbols in the golden spine on the left side. CLEVER JO3BOT.

One more below: Continue Reading »

The Feline Terror of Hoth

No, this isn’t just a replica AT-ST that an avid Star Wars fan made and his cat happened to crawl inside. He specifically made this for his cat, as what kitty wouldn’t want to march through the snow on two metal legs as puny rebels flee in terror? And then nap inside afterward?

But yeah, cat toy aside, this is some pretty quality workmanship, and this guy deserves all the internet fame he can get from this. I’m fully expecting a Death Star doghouse out back.

Good work, Jackson Galaxy.

Batman, Just Chillin’

Published by under Images,Oddly Enough

batman-iceberg-1

Global warming may suck, but at least the melting ice caps are producing some rather cool looking stuff as they slowly drown us all. One such example is this recent “batberg,” a Batman-shaped iceberg that is calmly watching over the water. Until he melts more that is.

Or…perhaps this picture is actually just a very zoomed in version of Batman stuck in neck-high water, frozen solid by Mr. Freeze. That seems more likely to me.

Photographer Mike Parsons posted this to Facebook after he took the picture in Newfoundland, but he didn’t see the Batman resemblance until it was shared half a million times around the world. Really Mike? Come on now.

Living in the Age of Ultron

Marvel just debuted a new preview poster for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is actually eight posters showcasing all eight of the Avengers that will appear in the next film. Additions are Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, seen in a few panels above.

I’m also not quite sure who the guy in the cape is in the distance there, any guesses?

Hawkeye is really struggling here. I guess having actual superpowers is sort of important when you’re fighting murderous robots. Although Black Widow appears to be punching them in the face just fine.

Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman Debuts at Last

Published by under Images,Movies

Well, I though that Diana Prince might only have a cameo in the new Batman V. Superman movie, and certainly wouldn’t be in costume yet. But Zack Snyder just proved me wrong at SDCC, debuting Wonder Woman as the last part of the film’s “Holy Trinity.” She will be in the film, though apparently isn’t important enough to squeeze into the title.

Many have criticized Gal Gadot for being too model-y to play the part, as the role requires someone sturdier and less wisp-ish. I think this photo proves with the right costume and workout routine, most actresses can probably make for a badass looking Wonder Woman, her included.

My problem with Gadot has never been her look, it’s that while Marvel takes even secondary female roles and gives them to stellar actresses like Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Gwenyth Paltrow, Wonder Woman is literally the most famous female supehero ever, and DC casts the one girl from the Fast and the Furious movies. No not that one, the other one. Still no, the other one. There you go.

Perhaps its unfair to judge Gadot on one relatively paltry role, but it does seem like something of a risk. I suppose we won’t know how this will all play out until the film itself, but at least we know she’ll look the part at the very least.

The Greatest Movie Conspiracy Ever Told

Published by under Images,Movies

plan

If you’ve made it all the way to the bottom of this absurdly long image, you probably get the gag already, but one film fan uncovered/invented an exceptionally elaborate conspiracy theory involving Harrison Ford and James Earl Jones trying to kill Hitler across both the Indiana Jones and Star Wars franchises.

It mainly has to do with two recurring bad guy actors who appear in both franchises, one of whom is Hitler himself. Anyway, stop reading this and scroll back up and follow along. \

I highly doubt 9gag actually came up with this, but respect to whoever actually did.
