Ever wondered how your fair city would handle an Imperial invasion? If you happen to live in Los Angeles, then this video by Kaipo Jones will give you an idea. There are some Easter eggs in there, so pay close attention to the signs. He also made BTS video to show you how it was all done.

We won’t see Deadpool in theaters until February 12th of next year, but actor Ryan Reynolds is making the wait easier with a steady stream of Deadpool-themed tweets.

The latest features him and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead. She was a student of Emma Frost who has telepathic and precognitive abilities. It’s just another bit of evidence that the movie is trying to stay true to the comic.

Lego builder Michal Kazmierczak has recreated the dwarf fortress Erebor from 55,000 Lego bricks. It took him seven months to build the 5-foot-tall model. It’s not just the outside, but the inside that he’s also faithfully recreated with Lego bricks, even adding in some minifigs.

He notes on Eurobricks that each dwarf statue weighs over 13 pounds and that it’s bigger than the official Death Star set. When you see the picture of him standing next to his project, that’s very easy to believe.

These VHS tapes look straight out of the distant past, but the films and TV shows are modern. An artist named Stan has taken films like Guardians of the Galaxy and shows like The Walking Dead and designed retro VHS tape covers that would be right at home in the ’80s.

mad max

Another Mad Max: Fury Road trailer has been released and, while I didn’t think it was possible for it to be better than the last two…it’s even better than the last two!

This new trailer gives us more info about the plot and the Big Bad, plus a bit more detail on why Charlize Theron is driving around with a car full of gorgeous women. Not that I needed it, because I’d see this movie even if it was just two hours of cars, explosions, and loud music.

Can’t wait for May 15th.

Head after the break to see the trailer.

wolverine

Hugh Jackman has announced that he’ll don adamantium claws “one last time”. The news came via an Instagram post with the actor settling once and for all the question of whether or not he’d continue playing the character.

Therefore, his last appearance as the character will happen in the third Wolverine movie which is due in 2017. Apparently, the lessons of Birdman didn’t fully sink in.

He recently told Cigar Aficionado:

I said to my wife, ‘The moral is that I should never stop playing Wolverine. I’ve got to find a way to keep playing him until I die. I know that someday they’ll recast the role with another actor… I’d be happy if the role was eventually recast. It would mean that it had become iconic.

Jennifer Lawrence has also confirmed that her role in Apocalypse would be her last as Mystique so it looks like there are going to be some pretty big mutant shoes to fill in future films.

See Jackman’s Instagram post after the break.

This fantastic video recreates the lobby scene from The Matrix using Lego minifig versions of Neo and Trinity. There’s also a fascinating behind-the-scenes video that shows how a six-second segment of the video took an hour and a half to create.

leviathan-concept-700x302

Filmmaker Ruairi Robinson has been working on a sci-fi film called The Leviathan and the proof of concept trailer looks amazing. It features a giant, whale-like beast flying through the air with a crew on a spaceship fighting it off. A brief description reads:

By the early 22nd century mankind had colonized many worlds. Faster than light travel was made possible by harvesting exotic matter from the eggs of the largest species mankind has ever seen. Those that take part in the hunt are mostly involuntary labor.

Robinson was attached to the Akira remake at one point, so this isn”t the work of an amateur. This is definitely going to be worth your time to watch.

Back in Time is a Back to the Future documentary that has been in the works since last year when it debuted on Kickstarter. The filmmakers landed an interview with Christopher Lloyd and have since interviewed others including Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Bob Gale, and Alan Silvestri to name a few.

In other words, the project has gotten bigger and that means another round of funding is needed to help with post production and distribution. So, the project is back up on Kickstarter along with the news that it will be released this October to coincide with time that Marty McFly arrived in 2015 in the movie. From the Kickstarter page:

Malka Media Group, Patchwork Media, and Director Jason Aron are pleased to announce that the documentary feature film BACK IN TIME will premiere in Hollywood, California on October 21, 2015, as a part of the We’re Going Back fanfest honoring the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. The film will release digitally and on Bluray/DVD on or shortly after October 22nd, and will be available for preorder via a Kickstarter campaign beginning March 9th.

Check out the brand new trailer after the break…
