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.

In terms of smartass antics on Counter-Strike, this is one of the most clever I’ve seen in a while.

fantasy creatures 1

Lee Cross has skills. The talented artist has a knack for being able to sculpt life-like fantastical creatures that are breathtaking. The handmade critters appear to be armature wire covered in fabric, stuffing, and fur, and they come in a wide variety of sizes. They’re also fully posable! It’s like having an adorable, exotic pet without any of the work.

While she doesn’t take commissions or have an Etsy shop, Lee does offer her creatures on eBay from time to time.

See more of Lee’s work 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…

Wolverine Autopsy

It’s old news now that Marvel Comics intends to kill the mutant hero Logan AKA Wolverine. Wolverine’s been one of Marvel’s most popular superheroes for a while and he’s basically the lead character of every X-Man movie, so his loss should have a tremendous impact. But will it? Comics are known for superheroes and villains seemingly dying only to return later, and the odds of resurrection seem to increase if you’re a mutant or in a book with an “X” in the title. There was this time when we saw Wolverine get stabbed through the stomach and then the autopsy revealed it wasn’t him but a shape-shifting alien who took his place while we weren’t looking. Oh, and that time Logan actually did die alongside his teammates in Dallas.

That having been said, here’s a quick list of some prime examples of false deaths and literal resurrections that have happened in the X-Men family of comics. To keep this from becoming a novel, we won’t include cases when time travel or the Infinity Gauntlet has been used to prevent a death from happening in the first place.

Remember the talk about Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell revving up Evil Dead again from a while back? Well, Shock Till You Drop reported that Sam Raimi, his brother, and Bruce Campbell revealed that they’re working on an Evil Dead TV series during Friday’s Screen Gems panel.

However, Campbell’s role in the series was unclear, so a fan asked later.
