big-lebowski-pinball-1

So, do you love The Big Lebowski and pinball? Then you’re in luck: Dutch Pinball made a bunch of prototype Big Lebowski pinball machines and, as you see, the dude would be pleased. Dutch Pinball is planning on manufacturing the Lebowski line later next year, and while they do look cool, the price tag for one of these machines is pretty steep–just around $8,500.

Just curious, does the pinball machine come with a living room rug?

If you weren’t already on board with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, the film’s final trailer will definitely have you stoked to see McConaughey risk it all to save the world.

Intersteller debuts on November 7th.

bargaining with bounty hunters

If all you did was look at this piece of fan art by redditor dvsdesigner as concept art featuring a desperate Empire once again bargaining with bounty hunters, it would already be a killer piece of work. But, this is fan art on more than one level. The artist based the image on a scene from Once Upon A Time in the West because “Lucas was inspired by Leone’s work for the original films, and I wanted to recapture that.”

Well done, sir. Seriously. Check out the image from the film after the break…

tetris

Tetris never gets old as far as I’m concerned. Stacking the blocks of the ’80s game is satisfying and fun – so much so that it’s apparently headed to the big screen. Wait, what? The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) reports that Threshold Entertainment has joined forces with the Tetris Company to make a film based on the game. You’d assume they’re going animated, right? Nope, it’s live-action.

Threshold’s Larry Kasanoff told WSJ the following:

“It’s a very big, epic sci-fi movie. This isn’t a movie with a bunch of lines running around the page. We’re not giving feet to the geometric shapes.”

Kasanoff has worked on the Mortal Kombat screen adaptation, so we’ll see what he can cook up. Pardon me if I don’t get terribly excited.

shatner nimoy

Rumors started swirling last week that William Shatner had been approached by director Roberto Orci to appear in Star Trek 3 along with Leonard Nimoy. Those rumors got a flat out denial from Shatner and Orci replied that he could neither confirm or deny the rumors.

However, William Shatner appeared at Wizard World Nashville and thought the “will he or won’t he” news had been basically announced thanks to the rumor and he was free to talk about it. So, he talked about it.

You can find out what he said thanks to Trek Movie. A transcript and video await after the break…

NUP_111710_1900

As much as we all love Netflix, there’s one time a month where they stab us in the heart. Sure, new titles get added on the first of the month, but they also remove content and this October 1st is looking pretty painful for some of us.

On quick review, I’m losing Battlestar Galactica, Ghostbusters Law & Order, and Law & Order: SVU. That’s…painful. Not my Lennie and Benson. Noooooo.

They’re also removing Mean Girls, and Center Stage (for those of you who love a good guilty pleasure dance movie).

On the plus side, they’re adding GalaxyQuest.

Check out the full list of additions and removals after the break.

In the mood for some fun sci-fi action? Well, then you’ll probably dig this new 10-minute short by David Weinstein, titled “Envoy.” It feels like a modern repackaging of both E.T. and Iron Giant (albeit with less Vin Diesel–I still think Iron Giant was his greatest role ever!), but it’s an enjoyable video that’s well worth watching all the way through.

Check out the video after the break…

always shoot first

If Peter Quill, Han Solo, and Malcolm Reynolds sat down at the cantina and had a chat, it seems reasonable that they would discuss when it’s okay to shoot first. This LEGO video from Brotherhood Workshop takes the characters from Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, and Firefly and imagines how the conversation would go. Spoiler: it’s kinda fantastic.

Watch the mash-up LEGO video after the break.

IronManSword-David

No, Iron Man didn’t have a sword that you somehow missed amid all the action, but what if he did have one? Man at Arms: Reforged expands on the amazing replicas that blacksmith Tony Swatton has created by imaging some nonexistent weapons and making them in the forge. This time, they create a sword for Iron Man and it definitely looks like something Tony Stark would love to have in his arsenal.

See the video after the break.
