Marilyn Miller Poster

After winning awards at various festivals such as SXSW, Sundance, and the Chicago Film Festival,  Marilyn Myller is now available to view online. This stop-motion animated film is the creation of Mikey Please of Parabella Animation Studio and is a follow-up to his BAFTA-winning The Eagleman Stag. Photographed and animated by Please and Dan Ojari, Marilyn Myller uses heavy styrofoam sculptures and long exposure lighting. It’s a wonderful thing to watch.

The video and a look behind the scenes follow after the break.

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…

Lucy-Lawless

Everyone was pretty excited to hear rumors that Lucy Lawless would be joining the S.H.I.E.L.D cast. During the Marvel panel at SDCC last night, her casting was confirmed along with the name of her character: Isabelle Hartly.

So far as we can tell, Isabelle Hartly hasn’t appeared elsewhere in the Marvel universe. However, she is a longtime S.H.I.E.L.D veteran that was described thusly:

“She’s tough. She may have a knife that’s always by her side,” said executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen.

Other new faces on the show this season will include Nick Blood as mercenary Lance Hunter and Reed Diamond who will play Daniel Whitehall, a Hydra baddie known as Kraken in Secret Warriors.
