Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray September 13th and you know what that means.

It’s gag reel time.

Okay, sure, there’s the actual movie and other special features, but who cares about that? The gag reel is the best part of any bonus extras.

This sneak preview of the gag reel has dancing, swearing, flubs, and even Chris Evans holding his nose in the cutest way possible. Enjoy. [click to continue…]

Pokemon pokeballs

Target wants to be your #1 Pokéstop for all things Pokémon Go-related and they’re not being shy about it. You know those big red balls (they’re actually security bollards) outside of their stores? They’re turning them into giant Poké Balls. It’s happening outside of more than 400 Target locations across the US.

They’re also inviting Pokémon fans to come by and take a picture with the new Poké Balls. Sure, why not. Good luck trying to steal one though—they weigh over 1200 pounds. Let’s see if some idiot tries.

star wars album covers

Digital artist Steven Lear is a big fan of music and movies, both of which feature prominently in his mashups. You can tell he’s especially a fan of Star Wars, which he’s reworked as album covers with spectacular results. I’m especially pleased by his Bjork covers keeping it in the family. Check out more of our favorites below. [click to continue…]

Never doubt the internet’s ability to come up with a theory that you’d never consider until someone considers it, at which point, it’s like it was there all the time.

In Game Of Thrones, it was R+L=J. This time, it’s Stranger Things and the idea that Parks & Recreation‘s Jean-Ralphio Saperstein is the son of Steve Harrington from Stranger Things.

If you’re a fan of the show, you’re probably aware of the theory at this point. In fact, it’s gained so much traction that Jean-Ralphio himself (Ben Schwartz) shared his thoughts on the subject. As you’ll see in the video below, he’s pretty sure J-R ran the Upside Down. Just roll with it. [click to continue…]

Whether you’re planning a Harry Potter party, or getting ready for Halloween, this animated spellbook is a perfect prop for the occasion.

The book has all sorts of spooky details and comes with lights, sound effects, and a moving magnetic quill that follows a hidden, circular track.

All you need is a couple AA batteries and a place to put it. I’d love to see someone use this in a Harry Potter cosplay. See it in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

thor loki childrens hospital

Remember when Chris Pratt and Chris Evans went to visit a children’s hospital together? Well, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston took time out from filming Thor: Ragnarock stop by Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital and it was just as awesome as you’d imagine.

Loki getting smashed in the face by a young lady wielding Mjolnir may be the best thing ever. Deep down Loki is a real softie. Actually, all the pictures are wonderful. Feels ahead… [click to continue…]

The character designs by Haruhiko Mikimoto in anime Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress have been so popular that there’s a 1:1 scale Mumei being made. She’s even taller than Mumei voice actress Sayaka Senbogi at at 5-feet, 7-inches tall.

A total of 10 Mumei figures will be made for 2.5 million yen (approx $25,000 USD). Even at that price demand is expected exceed supply, so a random lottery has been set up that runs until September 30th. It allows potential buyers a chance to sign up and purchase a Mumei 1:1 anime figure once they’re available. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Remember when we showed you that amazing Snorlax cushion? The one big enough to sleep on? Well, it seems that “big enough to sleep on” may be a bit too big for some of the Japanese customers who actually purchased one.

New Snorlax owners took to Twitter to shed light on their struggle. One user was even kind enough to tweet most of the journey from door to bed.

At close to five feet tall and over four feet wide, this Snorlax didn’t just become a cute sleeping idea, it became a roommate. Check out some of the amusing pics below. [click to continue…]

It’s no secret that we’re fans of artist Joey Spiotto and his Little Golden Book-style covers, so we’re super pumped about his Kickstarter project for Storytime – A Little Art Book.

Storytime is a full-color 132-page book that features all of Spiotto’s Little Golden Book-inspired art to date. Since the book is already hitting stretch goals, it’s been upgraded to an 8.5 x 11 hardcover with gold foil and a dust jacket. This is prime coffee table art book material and you can get your own for only $25.

You can also get an exclusive Kickstarter-only Stranger Things print, which is probably the best thing you’ll see today. Check it out below. [click to continue…]
