I haven't even seen the Harry Potter spin-off/prequel/thing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them yet because I was out of the country when it came out last year. But let's be real: you aren't coming here for my commentary about ScreenJunkies' latest Honest Trailer. You're just coming to watch the damn thing. Fine. I'll leave you two in peace. Enjoy your Honest Trailer.
I've seen some bizarre things on the internet (haven't we all?), but something new has catapulted into the upper echelon of random weirdness. YouTuber William Osman used a laser cutter to create a scarily accurate bust of Fast & Furious star Vin Diesel made out of ham and cheese, and when he was finished, this madman turned his creation into a sandwich.
We're all going to have to deal with this in our own way. For me, I'm pretty sure the only way I'll be able to purge this will be to actually eat a ham and cheese sandwich of my own. Good luck getting this image out of your head, though. Godspeed to you all.
Taika Waititi's coming-of-age film Hunt for the Wilderpeople was one of the nicest surprises of last year, and a new poster is coming out this week that celebrates the one-year anniversary of the New Zealand-set comedy.
/Film pointed us to these limited edition prints from artist George Bletsis, one of which is in color and the other is black and white so you can color it in yourself. The artist had this to say:
“Hunt for the Wilderpeople is such a wonderful movie, and with this poster I wanted to make something that really captured the fun atmosphere, so I went with a playful style that messes with scale/perspective in order to pack as much energy in as I could. I used a colour palette that has a bit of a retro feel to it. The film reminded me of days spent playing in the woods as a kid, so l wanted to push that nostalgic feel. I also riffed on the colours used in the European comics I used to read when I was young. I thought something reminiscent of that era would not only suit the drawing style, but would further evoke the feel of a good old fashioned adventure!”
The site also broke down the sizing and pricing options that will be available when the poster goes on sale:
The regular version measures 24×36 and it will have an edition of 300 that will cost you £40.00 (roughly $49.50). Meanwhile the black and white open edition version only measures 18×24 and costs £15 (roughly $18). Both of them go on sale on Friday, March 31 at 3pm United Kingdom time (which is 10am Eastern Time).
You can snag one right here. Take a closer look at the detail in this print; it's almost like a "Where's Waldo" type of vibe where you can look around and try to find some of the film's best moments.
Fans seemed to love latest Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer! It offered us our best look yet at the kind of relationship that Peter Parker will have with Tony Stark in the movie. It was also filled with lots of cool action! There was a lot of stuff going on in that trailer, and there might be a chance that you missed something. To make sure you didn't miss anything, here's a fun video for you to watch from Mr. Sunday Movies that points out ten things you may have missed.
You've heard him voice a pistachio eating elephant, and now John Cena is onto bulls. Not just any bull mind you, this is Ferdinand! Maybe you remember the 1936 children's book about the pacifist bull who refused to fight. I'll be honest I'm not familiar, but basic web searches tell me this book is fairly well-known, and the trailer has a lot of potential! Take a look below and see it in theaters December 15th.
Jim Crowe and civil rights take center stage in the first trailer for Mafia III's latest DLC "Faster, Baby". It's the first DLC for the game, which was met with a lukewarm response at its launch...read more on GameTyrant
For anyone who really wanted a movie about John McAfee, the anti-virus software mogul who basically went balls to the wall crazy in Belize, I have some very good news. Someone's going to make a movie about it. The movie will be about the time Wired magazine writer Joshua Davis went to visit McAfee and McAfee was just all sorts of crazy, holed up in a compound with teenage girls in bikinis and bath salts. Lots of bath salts. And not for taking baths.
The movie is to star Johnny Depp as John McAfee, which sounds like a good fit. Most of my favorite Depp roles are him on drugs, most famously as Hunter S. Thompson in Fear and Loathingin Las Vegas. It will be directed by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who wrote Bad Santa and I Love You Phillip Morris, and it will be written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, who recently wrote the miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
I am excited about this. It can often be said that truth is stranger than fiction, and if anyone can prove that true, it's John McAfee. The movie will be titled King of the Jungle. No release date has been announced, but we will deliver more news as it comes. For more about John McAfee, check out the documentary about his life called Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee.
Full disclosure, I know this is an ad for something, but I don't care because it's pretty damn amazing. Skeletor is feeling "epic," but I'm sure "sexy" is the actual word they meant to use as he struts through the streets. Check out this over the top commercial below!
