jurassic world trailer

While the full trailer for Jurassic World will debut during Thanksgiving football on Thursday November 24th, Universal decided to drop a teaser trailer for the trailer.

It’s not much, but we do get some free range dino action and new vehicles, plus glimpses at Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt.

It definitely feels like the spirit (or DNA if you will…ahem) of the first Jurassic Park movie is going to be there.

You can watch it after the break.

Y’know how I’ve been saying that Funko just keep making things that cause me to want to throw my money at the computer? They just did it again.

These Star Trek: The Next Generation POP! Vinyl figures includes the most insanely adorable Locutus of Borg I have ever seen. Riker’s beard, Picard’s bald head, Geordi’s Visor, Deanna’s purple eyeshadow – they’re all so frakkin’ cute that I can’t take it.

They’re estimated to arrive in March of 2015 and you can pre-order now.

Head after the break and, remember, I warned you.

Outdoor movies are already fun. Heck, if I had a local drive-in movie theater, I’d totally go. Here in LA, we have some pretty cool outdoor screenings, including one at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.

All of that said, I’m pretty sure Secret Cinema may well be the coolest outdoor movie experience on the planet.

If you combine a movie screening, a live show ala Rocky Horror Picture Show, amusement park rides, large and lavish sets, and cosplay into one event, that’s Secret Cinema in a nutshell.

A crazy, awesome, fun nutshell.

SC recently did a tour of screenings of Back To The Future and they just released a video that will make you want to go to any event they do from now on.

On that note, Secret Cinema is bringing the show to Los Angeles in 2015. I think it’ll be a blast.

Head after the break to see what it will be like…

The_Stand

When the real discussion started about The Stand being made into a feature film, Stephen King himself noted that we should expect more than one movie. At that point, people figured that meant it would be two movies. But writer/director Josh Boone just upped the ante and confirmed that it would be four movies.

Four.

Boone broke the news on Kevin Smith’s Hollywood Babble-On podcast. Check out what he had to say after the break (minor spoilers)…

firefly zoe wash

This 2 second animation featuring Zoe and Wash was created by artist Stephen Byrne and is part of a larger project called The Animated Adventures Of Firefly. In addition to the clip, he also released a time lapse video of just what went into making this two seconds happen.

Both of those things would be fascinating and a joy for any Firefly or animation fan on their own. But if you’re like me, this two seconds likely gets you right in the feels.

Head after the break to see the making of video.

I have a confession to make. I’ve never seen The Last Starfighter. I’m not sure how it happened, but I missed out. It’s been one of those movies that’s always been in the “meaning to see it” category and now, after seeing this modern day re-cut trailer by Tim Gonzales, it’s in my “watch it tonight” category.

Well, the trailer and my long standing crush on Lance Guest and love for Robert Preston which, now that I think about it, makes the fact that I haven’t seen the movie even more odd.

Either way, head after the break and watch this new “modern” trailer.

eyes on tree

Twitter user @Ohhpe managed to escape it’s clutches, but someone else might not be so lucky.

sandman chess

Is it me, or is there something highly poetic about playing chess with Neil Gaiman’s Sandman characters?

This set includes 32 intricately sculpted, cold-cast porcelain chess pieces and a wooden game board.

It’s estimated to arrive in July of 2015 and it’s available for pre-order now.

groot swing

One of the things that makes director James Gunn so much fun to follow on social media is just how much he enjoys other people’s expressions of love for Guardians Of The Galaxy.

For example, this picture of a Groot swing that some fans made for an upcoming reality show called Super Fans, Super Builds. He posted it to his Tumblr to show it off and let people know how much he loved it.

I want one of those swings. Now.

Okay, seriously, I give up. I just need to accept that Funko is on a mission to take over the world and prepare to tithe a percentage of my paycheck to them on a monthly basis. Because, seriously, they just keep making things that cause me to make grabby hands!

Just when I was getting over the Big Trouble in Little China POP!s and the Warcraft POP!s, they announce a new line of POP!s based on The Matrix.

Teeny Trinity is the new best thing ever.

The only upside here is that they’re not expected until March of 2015, but you can pre-order now.

Head after the break to check out the rest of the figures.
