rc tie interceptor

The rebels got their RC Millennium Falcon, and now the Empire has a version based on the TIE Interceptor.

Both were created by hobbyist Oliver C who notes that the TIE version took about 15 hours to design and “at least as many” to get it flying properly. There was also a mishap or two along the way, with shattered propellers embedding splinters of carbon in the walls of his garage.

Check out a video of the RC TIE Interceptor in action after the break…

frozen-emoji

Disney has brilliantly retold their most magical winter story ever with emojis. It’s so darn cute I just want to start belting out “Let it Go” while watching this.

The entire story takes place on a cell phone. It’s literally every scene from the movie Frozen staring Elsa, Anna and the gang as adorable little bouncing emojis.

The emotions, the songs, the triumphs, and sisterhood; this short will melt your heart all over again.

Watch the video after the break.

Robert Downey Jr. really seems to have taken on the best parts of his alter-ego Tony Stark these days. Monday, he released a video to announce that you could have the “very best night of your life…EVER”. With him.

All you have to do is go to Omaze.com/RDJ and donate $10 or more to Julia’s House and you’ll be entered into a contest to win the RDJ Experience.

Not only will the winner walk the red carpet and attend the premiere of Avengers: Age of Ultron with RDJ, they’ll be flown out to LA, put up at a 4-star hotel, and lots of other cool stuff that I’ll let the man himself tell you all about.

Lego and Star Wars fit together like, well…two Lego pieces. Enter LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales—a new six-part miniseries that will debut later this year.

The series will retell the prequel and original Star Wars flicks from the perspective of everyone’s favorite robotic duo: C3PO and R2-D2. The action picks up shortly after the Battle of Endor (think: Ewoks using stormtrooper helmets as drums) with the droids sharing their take on the events that led up to the destruction of the Second Death Star, beginning with The Phantom Menace and going all the way up to Return of the Jedi. The show will debut on Disney XD, so it should be a fun one to watch with the kids!

AdventureTime

Oh my glob! Warner Bros. has announced that they’ll be developing Adventure Time into a feature-length animated film produced by The LEGO Movie‘s producers Chris McKay and Roy Lee. Pendleton Ward will be involved with the writing as well as producing.

Let’s just hope that they keep things mathematical and avoid CGI or (shudder) live action.

What do you think?

Harrison-Ford-As-Rick-Deckard-In-Blade-Runner-Interview-1600x955

The last few months have been big on nostalgia. We’ve got the return of Star Wars of course, but there’s also Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film, Twin Peaks, the Terminator reboot, and even DuckTales and Inspector Gadget for crissakes.

Now comes word from Variety that Harrison Form is confirmed for a return as Rick Deckard in the Blade Runner sequel. Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve is in negotiations to direct.

The script comes from Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original film) and Michael Green with input from Ridley Scott. All we know about the plot thus far is that it will take place several decades after the original film.

Ford recently said that the script was “the best thing that he ever read”, which may or may not mean anything. Regardless, how do you feel about the reality of a Blade Runner sequel?

bttf yahtzee

If you like Yahtzee, you’ve probably been enjoying the new themed versions that USAopoly has been releasing (My personal favorite is the Firefly version). The latest reveal comes in the form of this Back To The Future Yahtzee game with a Flux Capacitor.

I don’t need it, but I want it anyway.

Unfortunately, I can’t buy it yet. But it’s out there…in the future.

dragonballz

Finally a Dragon Ball Z film to be excited about. This fan made video is for a webseries called Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope and is based on The History of Trunks TV special.

The non profit crew of 70 has produced a really well made pilot episode with awesome fight scenes and incredible special effects. And with 1.5 million views so far, fans are once again hopeful for the continuation of a DBZ life action series since the terrible disappointment that hit the box office back in 2009.

They explain their mission thusly:

“Our goal is to bring the Dragon Ball world to life in a way that’s never been done before, while staying true to the characters and story.

In Dragon Ball Z: Light of Hope, Gohan and Trunks fight against the unstoppable Androids #17 and #18 and try to save as many human lives as possible. The young Trunks must grow up quickly and learn from his mentor, Gohan; but with battles to fight on both the outside and inside, how long can they endure, and where will they find a light of hope?”

power rangers movie

There’s been an interesting development regarding the Power/Rangers fan film we posted the other day. Joseph Kahn, the director behind the video, revealed on Twitter that Power Rangers franchise owner Haim Saban and Saban Brands issued a copyright claim to Vimeo and that’s why the video was taken down. (It’s still on YouTube, for now).

Kahn feels as if Saban is being unfair and that he feels “harassed”, stating that he used his own money, he is not using any pre-existing footage, and his giving it away freely. However, he is using the characters and that’s where things get sticky.

Neill Blomkamp’s Alien movie is moving forward, and now it seems as though the film will disregard Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection in favor of “a proper finish” after Aliens. Though it’s unclear whether or not the new movie will ignore the last two films altogether.

Also, Sigourney Weaver is definitely on board—which was already a given.

Check out the interview with Blomkamp and Weaver after the break and let us know what you think. Should the film acknowledge Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection or completely dismiss them?
