nolan directs the incredible

He already blew our minds with his recut of Frozen as a horror movie, and now YouTuber Bobby Burns has imagined what The Incredibles would look like if it had been created by Christopher Nolan.

It really is amazing what clever editing and music can do. Now I really want to see this movie.

Head after the break to watch it.

Gamora is a kick-ass character and this concept art from Guardians of the Galaxy shows her looking even more fierce than the version we saw on the big screen. Artist Andy Park tweeted some of the concept art that he did for both Gamora and Nebula and it shows the much darker characters that didn’t make the final cut (maybe they should have).

See the tweets after the break.

You can say what you like about how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles looked in the movie this summer, but just be thankful that we didn’t get anything resembling these guys. According to CBM, this pitch artwork by Anthony Francisco (who recently did some great work on Guardians Of The Galaxy and G.I. Joe: Retaliation) represents a much more alien version of the Turtles which would undoubtedly have made fans mob theaters with torches and pitchforks.

Thankfully, the designs only went as far as a meeting with the producers.

This mash up of anime and a Gene Kelly song and dance is one of those things that you never would have thought of in a million years but is so perfect when you see it.

In this adorable (and, for some of us, nostalgic) video, a sad little ghost named Gisoku no Moses, or Peg-leg Moses, comes upon a pair of dancing tap shoes.

The results are magical.

Check out the video after the break.

We’ve covered Action Movie Kid’s antics before, and it looks like he’s back in… er, action. James Hashimoto (aka Action Movie Kid) is one lucky son of a gun: his dad (Dreamworks animator Daniel Hashimoto) loves to shoot fun videos of James and then add all sorts of effects using Adobe AfterEffects to make it look like James is starring in his own action film. The end result is pretty spectacular.

Check out the volume 2 collection the break…

Whether you’re taking notes about the proper pronunciation of a new spell or writing out the month’s rent check, using a quill will make the task cooler. Extra points if you use a Harry Potter Hogwarts house pen from Etsy shop Mythical Menagerie. The fantastic writing instruments are made from dyed pheasant feathers that are hand painted to match the crest of each house. Each one is made to order and though they’re sold out right now, the seller will be restocking soon.

See some detailed shots after the break.

These beautiful fan made posters created by AndrewSS7 for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII are absolutely beautiful. He’s included iconic images from the universe like the Millennium Falcon, the Death Star, and a Star Destroyer, and imagined them after the credits rolled on Return of the Jedi. These might not be the real thing, but they are sure to get you excited about the possibilities.
