Incredible. More excited than ever about this film. Does anyone else sense a Steve Jobs allusion here?
I’m not sure I completely understand the ongoing confusion (up until this video came out) about whether or not Prometheus is directly connected to the Alien universe/films. It obviously is. The Space Jockey, seen in the first trailer, is straight out of Alien. The derelict ship is straight out Alien. How is this movie not connected to Alien?
This is awesome in so many ways it eludes summarization. SeanWard.net put a guy in a Batman suit and sent him out into the streets of Toronto, originally with the intention of making a “Shit Batman Says” video. It became more of a social phenomenon. Watch and learn and watch again. WHERE ARE THEY?!?
This is too good not to repost (via ForeverGeek). Raiding the Lost Ark is a fan-made, in-depth documentary / commentary on Raiders of the Lost Ark by Jamie Benning. It shows the entirety of the film with custom curated commentary from the makers and stars, intercut with clips of the making of the film. Watch it while you can: Benning’s prior “filmumentaries” on the Star Wars trilogy were forcibly removed from YouTube due to alleged copyright infringement.
I’m a big fan of the Matt Damon Bourne films, so this makes me nervous, despite the fact that I like a lot of the actors involved. The Damon trilogy played as real to me; for some reason this teaser has a superhero movie feel.
This is the absolute last movie I expected to be excited about, but this trailer kicks ass. I thought the reboot was a horrible, greedy, redundant idea, but now I’m into it. I particularly like that they apparently changed the origin story somewhat: that bit about Parker’s father is brand new, to my knowledge.
Andrew Garfield is also much better casting for Peter Parker than Tobey Maguire ever was: he looks like Spiderman from the comics, thinner, lither. The bulked up look they gave Maguire in the trilogy always looked a little silly. And hardcore fans are doubtless thrilled about the mechanical web-shooters.
“You seriously think I’m a cop, in a skin-tight red and blue suit?”
This is, quite simply, the coolest and most creative commentary on comics (or any subject of geek interest) I have seen in recent memory.
Max Landis is the writer of the film Chronicle, out now, and son of writer-director John Landis. Aside from being well-made and fucking hilarious, this video hits close to home, as I remember the Death of Superman saga well, and I’ve been getting back into comics lately via my iPad.
