Official Groot-Doh

groot-doh

James Gunn has been known to give Play-Doh to cast and crew members as a reward for their hard work. He notes that “smelling it reminds me of childhood and pure creativity. So I like giving out that experience on set.”

This is what happens when you give Play-Doh to a bunch of props guys working on a big budget film like Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2.

The mysteries of the Doctor Strange Lego set have been revealed—but it’s resulted in even more mysteries.

Thanks to Amazon Japan, we have our first look at the upcoming Lego set for Doctor Strange. It appears that the set is a recreation of Strange’s “Sanctum Sanctorum” in New York. The details—like the Vishanti seal on the window—are fantastic, but the set also raises plenty of questions. Like, for instance, what gives with the giant tentacle demon monster? Is that something we’ll see in the film?

The set will be available later this August. [click to continue…]

The rule is that every popular thing will be mashed up with Star Wars at some point. I’m sure it’s written down on some ancient slab in a museum somewhere.

So, someone had to do a Star Wars / Suicide Squad mashup trailer, and The Unusual Suspects answered the call of the gods.

The following supercut video features some of the most heartbreaking moments in movie history. It’s also over 10 minutes long. Can you get through the whole thing without crying?

If the screenshot above is already too much, just bow out now. There’s no shame in it but, let’s be honest—YOU CAN’T HANDLE THIS.

Still with me? Prepare to test your mettle. And don’t worry—there’s a breather or two in there. I would consider Titanic to be a breather anyway. [click to continue…]

If you went back in time and asked the six-year-old version of me what the perfect New York apartment would look like, I’d probably describe something akin to this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-themed “Turtle Lair” in Tribeca, New York. Airbnb is currently offering TMNT fans a chance to stay at this kick-ass pad, and it’s jam-packed with tons of incredible amenities, including a TMNT arcade cabinet and a basketball court! The spot boasts three bedrooms, four bathrooms and even free pizza delivery. Read more after the break…

In case you didn’t know, the soundtrack for The Force Awakens is finally available on vinyl. Much like the movie itself, the record is both retro and futuristic.

Indeed, this record would look very odd spinning in a wood-paneled room with orange shag carpeting. That’s because Disney emblazoned these vinyl records with 3D holograms of the TIE Fighter and Millennium Falcon. The holograms reportedly require the right angle and light to see (a smartphone LED flash is recommended), but when you hit the right combo, they look like they are “leaping off the vinyl” – which may or may not help to justify the $50 price tag.
