madmax-mariokart-mashup-700x300

Mario Kart gets a whole lot grittier with this Mad Max: Fury Road mashup. It’s so well done that you’ll have to watch it a couple of times to catch all the Mario modifications. Notice Max’s clothes are color corrected to make him more red and blue like Mario, and there’s a wrinkled hat in the foreground when Max rises out of the sand. There are even Donkey Kong logos on the drums!

Ryan Reynolds spent some time recently putting smiles on the faces of some very special kids while filming for Deadpool. He met with Tony Acevedo, a little boy fighting Hodgkin’s Disease, and 15-year-old Calista King who is a huge Deadpool fan. He sent King home with Deadpool’s sword and let little Tony don Deadpool’s mask and gloves.

Tony’s visit was through Make A Wish Foundation. According to The Hollywood Reporter, he wanted to meet with Deadpool because, “Deadpool never dies and everything he touches has magical powers.”

As we noted in our review, Jupiter Ascending was one crazy mess of a film, which makes it perfect for the Honest Trailers treatment. They cover it all in just over five minutes, which is amazing considering how much confusing, mixed up storyline there was to make fun of.

Tomorrowland George Clooney

It took about two seconds for Tomorrowland to fall flat on its face. The movie opens with Old Man Clooney (his character’s name is Frank Walker, but he’s Old Man Clooney to me) bickering with young ‘n’ peppy Casey (Britt Robertson) about the best way to tell their story to a yet-unspecified audience. Old Man C-Dawg is gloom and doom. Casey is an optimist and a dreamer. Which worldview will reign supreme?

Minor spoilers follow.

Orc chieftain Orgrim Doomhammer is our first official look at the upcoming Warcraft movie. It is nothing short of amazing how Industrial Light and Magic has transformed Rob Kazinsky into this massive creature. They really captured the style of the game.

The DeLorean in Back to the Future hits 88 MPH in the Twin (Lone) Pines Mall parking lot so it can travel through time, but could the car get up to speed in the real world? After all, the DeLorean is an underpowered car dealing with a limited amount of space. According to a commenter on Jalopnik, Marty would never have made it:

So knowing the acceleration and knowing that the car travelled roughly 100 meters or 6.214×10^-2 miles we can look at how long it would have taken to traverse that distance. For an object starting from a standstill the equation for distance assuming a constant acceleration is D=0.5AT^2. Solving that equation for time gives an answer of 8.1 seconds. What that means is that the Delorean wouldn’t even be going 60mph (let alone 88mph) by the time it reached Doc and Marty since it takes 8.8 seconds for the car to get to 60mph. Doc wasn’t joking about seeing some serious shit… him and Marty would be splattered across the Twin Pines parking lot!

The calculations utilized the Google Maps measurement tool on the actual parking lot location along with a map of the DeLorean’s routes. These maps were assumed to be accurate, but the main issue here is that it was also assumed that Doc didn’t make any modifications to the engine. That seems unlikely since he took the time to turn it into a friggin’ time machine.

Still, you can check out the full analysis over at Jalopnik and decide for yourself.
