Welcome to The Extras! A daily dose of all the smaller movie related news, clips and just plain cool stuff that you might have missed!
Following on from yesterday’s story about the Avengers theme art exhibition happening at California’s Gallery 1998, here’s a couple of examples of what will be on display there courtesy of GeekTyrant:
I think it’s pretty safe to assume that I am probably not going to bother watching writer Nicholas Sparks’ next round of upchuck, The Lucky One. Now some of you might be wondering how I could possibly live in the torturous suspense of not knowing whether or not recently returned home marine Zac Efron ever finds true love or not, but thanks to Vince over at Uproxx, I don’t have to. He’s taken all the reviews (thanks for taking one for the team guys) for the film, and combining all the various expository quotes from them, has created the entire plot of the film. The result is, well there’s no other way to put this: It’s f$@king hilarious!
Due to my unfortunate lack of a Playstation 3 (sniff sniff), I’ve never had the joy of playing through the critically acclaimed Uncharted game series. And since Hollywood seems inexplicably intent on not making an Uncharted movie (or at least one that doesn’t involve Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch), it seemed like I was never going to experience fortune hunter Drake’s story.
Enter Reddit user morphinapg, who clearly has tonnes of free time, as he has edited together all the cinematics with some gameplay footage from all 3 games to create 3 feature length movies, all of which you can now view below:
Bless your over-achieving soul, Morphinapg.
Look, I get it. People have different tastes. We all need to be a bit more tolerable of others, even if we don’t agree with what they say, do or like. But seriously, Twilight fans, I think we need to draw the line when it comes to auctioning a ripped-up, dingy, mysteriously stained, sex pillow that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might have excreted bodily fluids on.
At last count, it was sitting on TWO THOUSAND NINE HUNDRED AND NINETY NINE CRAZY DOLLARS!
Brian Salisbury over at Movies.com makes the argument for why The Raid director, Gareth Evans, should direct Mission: Impossible 5. I dare you to find a flaw in his logic. I double dare ya!
Whether as a result of unexpected box office failure, or maybe just due to the fact that some filmmakers are royal knobs, movies will often hint at the possibility of more adventures and then promptly leave us hanging. (Damn, this brings back High School memories). To this regard TheFW’s Kevin Maher has compiled a list of 10 Movies The Promised Sequels That Never Happened.
C’mon Hollywood! My life won’t be complete until I know if Skeletor finally gets out of that lava pool!
Firstly, He took an arrow to the knee! (/skyrim fanboy). Secondly, that dude at the speaks the truth!
This could quite possibly be the greatest T-shirt ever made by man: Nik Holmes’ “I’d buy that for a fistful of dollars”
If there’s one thing us South Africans know well, it’s the hell of public transport. While we have to deal with death-traps on wheels that try to either deafen you, kill you or both and grown men smelling like they bathed in a combination of warm goat urine and cat sick, at least we don’t have to worry about our actual transport systems trying to drive us insane. Well, at least not as literally as in Victor Mirrales’ short film, Metro.
And on that Kubrickian note, we call it a day.
