deadpool test footage

Test footage from the defunct Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool movie surfaced on YouTube this morning, was quickly yanked, and now it’s resurfaced.

It appears that 20th Century Fox had the original video removed, but it’s probably the best thing that could have happened. Clearly, there is a demand for this film and this (mostly CGI) footage looks pretty great. Check it out for yourself after the break before it disappears again…

In case you missed it over the weekend, the first trailer for the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road premiered at Comic-Con, and it’s a truly wonderful thing to behold. We’re talking endless deserts, sandstorms, big rigs with spikes, leather armor, sun-crazed raiders and massive explosions.

The trailer doesn’t tell us much in terms of a coherent plot, but it looks like this newest edition to the Mad Max franchise is going to be a real feast for the eyes.

Watch the trailer after the break…

batman superman teaser leak

The quality of the leaked Batman V Superman teaser from the WB panel at SDCC is predictably terrible, but it’s enough to see why the audience lost their sh*t.

If you were skeptical about the new Warcraft movie from Legendary, I think you can worry a little less after seeing these props from the film.

Doomhammer, Frostmourne and an Alliance shield made the trip and, having seen them up close, I can tell you they look amazing. There was a guy saying that Doomhammer was too big as I was taking the picture (what?), if that gives you any info.

However, I’ll admit, there was a lot of hustle and bustle, so I didn’t get the best pictures. But I got pictures.

You can check out the weapons up close after the break…

Maisie-Williams-as-Arya-Stark-in-Game-of-Thrones-550x366

Sam Raimi has teamed up with Naughty Dog and Screen Gems to develop a film adaption of The Last of Us, and Neil Druckmann, the writer and creative director at Naughty Dog, has confirmed that they’ve met with Maisie Williams from Game Of Thrones to play Ellie.

From what I can tell, they’re definitely looking to focus more on the relationship between Joel and Ellie and, while the Infected will be a part of the movie, Slashfilm notes that “They are ‘laser-focued on the story of Joel and Ellie,’ and could pull some elements from the Left Behind expansion into the story.”

It’s still early in development and there’s no word yet on a director (Rami is producting), but Maisie Williams would be a great choice, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how this develops.

superman lives

Have you ever wondered what the legendary failed film Superman Lives would have been like if it actually made it all the way to theaters? Well sweet, sweet answers are on the horizon.

The fan-funded documentary film The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? now has a trailer, and it includes snippets of interviews with director Tim Burton and screenwriter Kevin Smith, along with some test footage of Nic Cage flying. After looking at the trailer, I’m starting to wish this movie had actually happened. It looks like it would have been a Nic Cage / Tim Burton supernova of insanity.

The project is still looking for funds to finish post-production, but we have no doubt that it will reach its final goals. Check out the trailer after the break…

super jedi

I don’t think it’s necessary to read to much into this image tweeted by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director Zack Snyder featuring Henry Cavill’s Superman as a Jedi. Still, imagine that crossover.

Actually, don’t do that. Forget I said anything.
