Taking it back to the 80s, Champ, Brian, Brick, and Ron are back in action! That’s right, Anchorman 2 is making it’s way to theaters in December (wish it would be released sooner,) and the new trailer is “burgundy-er.”
I wonder if we can expect another bear fight. What would you like to see this time around?
Before I begin this post, let me just say that I’ve yet to actually do any cosplay, but I’m currently in the works of putting the pieces together to do a Wonder Woman photo shoot. More details to come! Add me on FB @ www.facebook.com/Jazei25 to follow more of my Wonder Woman talk, pictures, and fitness progress.
Alright, so now that I got that out of the way, you should check out this pretty cool short feature, Human Angle: Cosplaying The Part.
Featuring cosplayer Ger Tysk, this short video from Polygon takers a deeper (but short) look at cosplay and how Ger views it as an art form. For her, cosplay is art, not just some weird hobby of dressing up.
Cosplay is a huge culture and community of people that enjoy showcasing their work. It’s not a bunch of weirdos, geeks, and lames getting together to make a statement; no, it’s much more than that.
Cosplay is about folks getting together, having a good ass time, and looking pretty effin’ cool in whatever cosplay they choose. Can you get down with that? Because I sure can.
Last night, Kristen Wiig made her triumph return to Saturday Night Live and reminded me that the show was really better when she was a cast member. Even though she was just hosting last night, her presence on most of the skits brought back that energy that a lot of the SNL skits have been missing. Don’t cha think so?
Wiig has been busy transitioning into the roles of movies, but she still has got the perfect comedic timing and characterization that made her such a star on SNL.
With the return of The Californians, she couldn’t even contain her laughter with all the 405 jargon and Rodeo drive nonsense. And in a skit for Mother’s Day, she had a hilarious hell of a time dealing with an annoying mom and buying her 1-800 Flowers. That skit was one I’m sure you’ll relate to, but the best of the night was the return of The Californians and the Lawrence Welk Show.
So yeah, The Californians was the best, but how about the weirdest skit? I’d say the Acupuncture one. Kristen Wiig giving acupuncture and blood squirting uncontrollably. It was grossly hilarious! Oh, and the second weird-but-funny skit was the Disney channel spoof, Ghost Mom. LOL. It’s the Ring meets Disney channel following the hilarious shenanigans of Kristen as a ghost raising Disney-style kids. Check it out!
Not only did Wiig do a knockout job last night, but even a very pregnant Maya Rudolph stopped by to make a few appearances. Overall, it was a hilarious episode that just shed light on the reality that one person can make a show better…and Kristen Wiig makes SNL better! Ugh, I miss her as a regular cast member!
If you love Kristen Wiig, then be sure to watch the skits below! And just in case you are wondering, yes…Target Lady made a return!
Making it’s way online today, the trailer for The World’s End gives us a look at the final film in Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s Three Flavours Cornetto trilogy. That’s right, Shaun of The Dead and Hot Fuzz were not only similar in slapstick and British humour, but each of the films featured a scene in which one of the characters purchases a Cornetto flavored ice cream.
Buying ice cream is simple, but if you’ve learned anything from Shaun of The Dead, aside from how to kill zombies by throwing records at their head, then you should know that getting to the pub is never as simple as it sounds. And even if you do make it to the pub, the fight for your life isn’t over. But in Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg’s The World’s End, we learn that zombies aren’t the only thing stopping the guys from getting to the pub…something eerie, out of this world, is happening in this quaint UK town.
Watch the hilarious new trailer for The World’s End below and add it to your list of summer movies; release is scheduled for July 19th (UK) and August 23rd (US.)
With Star Trek Into Darkness release date being moved up according to LA Times, it was only a matter of time before the pop culture references made their way into yet another car commercial. Considering that most sci-fi films often are cross-promoted in high-tech commercials for car brands, Audi’s latest commercial featuring Leonard Nimoy (the original Spock) and his next generation predecessor, Zachary Quinto is perfect for promoting the film in a subtle (but not so subtle) context.
There isn’t exactly any mentions of the new Star Trek film, but fans of the franchise will surely revel in the witty competition of oldschool Spock vs. newschool spock.
Watch the Audi Commercial below. Does it satifisy your nerdism? It’s got Nimoy cussing…yeah, that works for me.
Summer is right around the corner and the movie madness is getting ready to begin! First off we’ve got an action packed month of May with Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness, and then the summer really kicks off with del Toro’s Pacific Rim.
If you haven’t seen the first trailer, then watch it here. Once you’ve watched it, then sit back and watch 2,500 tons of awesome in the exclusive trailer that debuted at last month’s Wondercon.
In this new trailer we get the chance to see more of the monsters, experience the struggle the humans face, and see some epic ass-kicking. Yes, it’s super epic! This film is going to be the new Transformers of the summer time hype; except it will actually deliver a great movie.
Watch out Michael Bay, del Toro is stepping into epic-awesome-action territory. He already did an amazing job with Hell Boy, so yeah…this is going to be a monumental flick!
Oh, and to much surprise, Charlie Day (Always Sunny in Philly) has a role (a big one) in the film. Looks like he is moving on up in Hollywood.
Within the past few years, it appears that Superhero movies are becoming the expected; a summer doesn’t pass without an action-packed superhero blockbuster. With so many movies in the script stages, pre-production, production, and post-production, it’s hard to keep up with the films coming out, but SuperheroHype.com has got us covered. And it was all thanks to them that I saw the brand new emotional/epic trailer for Man of Steel.
Hitting theaters June 14th, 2013, Man of Steel is a fresh take on Superman. Considering the failure of the last Superman movie, this film is a great revive of the legendary character. The Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300) directed film began production in 2008, but now it’s finally ready for comic fans worldwide to get excited about. And with Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy) as producer…its bound to be epic!
Watch the new trailer below. The film has a great cast: “Henry Cavill in the title role, with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, and Russell Crowe as Jor-El.” Wikipedia
