Marvel’s continually expanding its cinematic universe (MCU for short), and we now have the teaser trailer for the next film: Doctor Strange starring Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch. We’ve covered previous Marvel films here before, so we anticipate this one with …err… anticipation. If you’ve no idea who Doctor Strange is, or why this is an exciting trailer, let me help you. But first watch the trailer.
Artist Roland Tamayo combines Star Wars and food to create the most delicious Star Destroyers you ever did see.
Tamayo takes keeps bridge part of the iconic class of warship intact but replaces the familiar triangular-shaped wedge with treats like pizza, birthday cake, cherry pie, strawberry cheesecake, and a quesadilla. It’s a combination that looks good enough to eat. Check them out below.
It seems there is an insatiable thirst for Star Wars. The latest to the epic space opera has had 34 million views. Impressive…most impressive. The film has also notched up 6.5 million US dollars in IMAX tickets sales.
There’s been an awakening, and I’m sure you felt it. But if you hunger for more, sound editor Jacob Smyth has seamlessly blended together all the recent teasers and trailers for the film into a fantastic fan edit. Check it out below.
To further whet your appetite for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Lucasfilm’s ILMxLAB has created this 360-degree clip that takes you onboard Rey’s speeder as she flies across the deserts of Jakku. You may recognize a little chirp from BB-8 and enormous scale of the crashed Star Destroyer that you saw in the trailer to the movie.
Check out the 360-degree clip below (click and drag to look around) or view it directly on Facebook.
If you remember, Bad Motherfucker director Ilya Naishuller started — and sucessfully funded! — an Indigogo campaign for Hardcore, first ever action POV feature film.
You remember nothing. Mainly because you’ve just been brought back from the dead by your wife (Haley Bennett). She tells you that your name is Henry and congratulations, you’re now a cyborg.
5 minutes later, your wife has been kidnapped and you should probably go get her back. Who’s got her? His name’s Akan (Danila Kozlovsky), he’s just a psychotic megalomaniac with telekinetic powers, and a never-ending army of mercenaries. You’re also in an unfamiliar city of Moscow, Russia and everyone wants you dead. Everyone, except for a mysterious British fellow called Jimmy (Sharlto Copley). He might be on your side. Good luck Henry. You’re very much likely to need it.
You saw a clip of the unfinished film here and it was insane. Now watch the official trailer, which I shouldn’t have to remind you contains liberal amounts of blood and violence (and a scant bit of nudity). This is definitely NSFW.
Canadians are in for a treat. The film debuts at the Toronto International Film Festival this month.

Pixar’s fifteenth film, Inside Out, takes place within the mind of 11-year old Riley Anderson, and focuses on the five main emotions within her head: Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger, and Disgust. Let me take you on a journey of the mind as we find out what the voices are telling Riley.
Kung Fury is one of those things that I’m sure started as one hell of a joke, and just gained life of its own accord because of just how awesome the entire concept felt. It started as a trailer looking for Kickstarter funding–which it received and then some, but still falling short of the funds needed to pay for an full length feature film.
The entire film is a homage to cheesy 80s action flicks, and director David Sandberg also plays lead character, Kung Fury. Some scenes even look as if the entire film is being played back on an old VHS machine. Oh the memories! To top off the cheesiness, the film has a theme song by Mr Knight Rider himself, David Hasselhoff, titled “True Survivor“. The theme song vid on YouTube has well over 10 million views already, so I guess you can consider it popular? Watch the film after the jump and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
He was your boet in a film shot entirely as an FPS game, and now Sharlto Copley is teaming up with Neill Blomkamp for yet another sci-fi adventure. In Chappie, Copley voices a robot who has been gifted the ability to think and feel for himself. The coming-of-age story has our protagonist going from watching cartoons and looking cool to experiencing first-hand how the world rejects things that it doesn’t understand. Check out the trailer below.
Chappie was shot in Johannesburg and you would have undoubtedly recognized oddballs Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er playing a parental role. Dev Patel is the young creator and mullet-ed Hugh Jackman finds A.I. too unpredictable. Chappie is set for release in March 2015.

If you liked Bad Motherfucker, you’re going to love this.
Ilya Naishuller, the Russian director who brought you Bad Motherfucker is at it again in Hardcore. Billed as the first ever action POV feature film, Hardcore is shot from the perspective of Henry, a cyborg who needs to save his lady from the clutches of a psychotic tyrant. In for the ride is our very own Sharlto Copley (District 9, Elysium) who provides tutelage on the art of war, in the most British of accents.
It’s action-packed, parkour-filled, and bloody as hell. Check out a clip from Hardcore below.
Hardcore has been shot and edited but it needs some final touches. Naishuller has taken to Indigogo for the additional funds to complete the film. If you’re interested in contributing, you can do so here.
Part of the ritual of growing up is watching horror movies together as a group of teenagers. The shared experience mitigates the fright somewhat, and makes it more tolerable. Some of those films you can even watch when you’re alone. And then there are some films that you really shouldn’t watch when you’re alone. Especially if you’re of a nervous bent. In which case, why are you watching scary movies alone, again? Get the popcorn, and I’ll run down some creepy films you have to rope others into watching with you (in no particular order–randomness can be just as creepy as the expected scares). Obviously, fright is a subjective term; some might find this list a little tame, others a “keep away” notice. If you’ve seen these, or have other recommendations, let us know in the comments below! The list after the jump-scare.
