Tommy Chaos Stacey Danger

Were you disappointed in Transformers: Age of Extinction? Don’t worry, true believers! Director Michael Lukk Litwak and his talented team have brought us what we desperately needed: an award-winning romantic adventure film that features dinosaurs with frickin’ lasers on their heads. The movie is entitled The Life and Death of Tommy Chaos and Stacey Danger and, according to its director, was “once described by a drunk person as ‘a cross between Blue Valentine and Jurassic Park.’ ”

Check it out after the break!

You guys, this Super Mario World script is really, really bad. Even Max Landis admits it’s horrible. He wrote the script when he was just 19, but he had the cojones to post it on his site (which you have to admire) along with a foreword detailing the script’s many issues. Let’s start with it being a whopping 435 pages long and that it contains a ridiculous character list that includes Banjo and Kazooie. This is definitely in “so bad it’s good” territory.

Read Landis’s forward after the break.

Warner Bros. Pictures has set up a special site called For Your Consideration designed to promote its films to Academy Awards voters. One of the things they think voters should consider nominating is a Best Original Song contender from The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. The song is The Last Goodbye which is written by screenwriters Philippa Boyens and Fran Walsh, and actor Billy Boyd who also sings the tune.

You might remember him singing All Shall Fade in the original trilogy which may have brought tears to your eyes. Expect the same this time around, and have a box of tissues at the ready.

The first Avengers: Age Of Ultron trailer leaked earlier today and was quickly pulled. Apparently, that prompted Marvel to say “f*ck it” and release the real deal. If you haven’t seen the high-res version head after the break post haste.

UPDATE: Marvel’s response to the leak earlier today was “priceless” as one of our Facebook commenters put it. You can see that after the break as well.

1A4 Studio has created a very simple animated version of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade that summarizes the whole thing in just 60 seconds. It’s got all the key scenes and locations from the movie. You wouldn’t think they could cram it all in to such a short video, but they do, and it’s ridiculously cute.

See the video after the break.

This wonderful Lego diorama based on The Goonies was on display at BrickCon 2014 and was created by members of the Virtual Lego Users Group (VLUG). This type of project is constructed in sections, with one member of the group organizing it all and the others each creating a section that they bring to the event to make the finished product. Members who worked on this build include Tyler Halliwell, Davey Sterling, Stacy Sterling, Dennis Price, Betsy Sandberg, Heath Flor, Lee Jones,Chris Phipson, Hans Dendauw, and matt rowntRee.

It’s impressive if you don’t know the film, but loyal fans will love all the little details they’ve included like Mikey’s and Data’s houses, One-Eyed Willie’s ship, and even some booby traps.

Friendship is magic. Friendship is also very popular apparently.

Variety reports that Hasbro is moving forward with a My Little Pony movie for a 2017 release. The movie will be produced through Allspark Pictures, and Hasbro will finance it in house. They have Joe Ballarini on board as the writer and Meghan McCarthy as co-executive producer. McCarthy works on the current animated show and Equestria Girls.

The news doesn’t state whether the film is based on the Friendship is Magic incarnation of the story, but it’s likely given the success of the animated series.

It’s impossible for any mere mortal to recreate Jeff Goldblum’s Jurassic Park laugh song, but now we all have hope thanks to Evan Kent. He’s taken that laugh and created sheet music so we can all give it a try. It will never be as good as he real thing, but it’s the closest the rest of us will be able to manage.

See the sheet music after the break.
