That’s not realistic CGI. It’s an actual guy who is part of a viking battle stunt show. Alex Yde has been practicing parkour for 12 years and it comes in handy for his work in the show. He’s been with Puy du Fou in France for three years playing different roles and decided to film one day’s adventures from his perspective.

Jurassic-Park-gate1-700x300

Everybody talks about the ethics involved in bringing back dinosaurs, but have you ever wondered just how much it would cost to actually build a Jurassic Park? I mean, John Hammond said “We spared no expense” in the first movie, but how much money was he actually talking about?

Fandango Movieclips sought to answer that question in their latest YouTube Video. For the clip, they utilized figures sourced from the operating costs of some of the biggest zoos and parks in the world to provide a theoretical estimate.

The answer? Well, it’s lot. Check out the video after the jump for the breakdown.

Daniel Baxter of How It Should Have Ended (HISHE) loves to poke fun at the two top dogs of the DC superhero world: Batman and Superman. In the latest HISHE video, Bruce “Do You Want To Know My Secret Identity” Wayne has a verbal tiff with with the cape-wearing Kryptonian about the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It’s on. So, so on.

Back in November, we posted this epic Batman vs. Darth Vader Super Power Beat Down video that imagines what the ultimate showdown between Batman and Darth Vader would look like.

Many of you weren’t happy with the ending.

So, Bat In The Sun has returned with an alternate ending to that first video, which the director calls “the definitive ending”.

Me? I just like the idea of watching Batman and Darth Vader cross paths.

Check it out after the break and let us know which version you prefer.

snape and lily

While I realize that the whole “Snape is a hero” theory is one of those bones of contention in the Harry Potter fandom, this video by YouTuber kcawesome13 will likely give people on both sides of the argument a case of the feels.

The video recuts Snape’s important scenes from the eight Harry Potter films into chronological order to give you a better understanding of the story from his perspective.

It was an interesting watch and, no matter what side you come down on in the fight, there’s no denying that Alan Rickman is utterly incredible.

Check it out after the break.

Do you remember that bonus stage in Street Fighter II where you could smash up a car for extra points? Thanks to the magic of the Internet, several people have attempted the stage in real life. We’ve posted those attempts after the break.

They’re actually kind of funny–watching someone jump around like an idiot and try to rip the hood off an old VW tickles me for whatever reason.

boxing-game-kick

I’m not sure if the guy in this video is a ninja, but the flying kick he launches at this arcade game is extremely impressive. While the martial arts action is cool, you don’t get to see the kick in normal speed, you don’t get to see the guy’s final score, and the quality of the video is abysmal. Bummer, I know. But I’m going to guess and say that he did get a high score… and that he probably broke the machine too.

Watch all the spin kicking action after the break…

princess rap battle
This one came to us courtesy of tipster Ashley Bullock, who knows that we like princesses with a twist.

Previously, Whitney Avalon took on Elsa as Snow White in a princess rap battle and got herself frozen. This time, it’s a trilogy battle as Leia takes on Sara Erikson‘s Galadriel.

In addition to playing Leia, Avalon co-wrote, co-produced and co-directed this video with Steve Gossett.

Personally, I like Leia’s rhymes better, but Galadriel definitely has some skills.

Head after the break to see the video.

80's action movie captain america

From the Cannon logo to the incredible voice over to the inevitable appearance of Michael Ironside, everything about this 80’s VHS style Captain America: Winter Soldier trailer is fantastic.

It totally reminded me of the summer I was 16 and spent a lot of time watching rented movies with my boyfriend. Top Gun, Rambo, Terminator, Remo Williams. We watched ’em all.

This trailer is like that summer plus all the awesome of Robocop and Escape From New York all in one movie.

Check it out after the break and see how many references you recognize.

Oh, to be an astronaut–so much fun with zero gravity! NASA astronauts and amateur filmmakers Reid Wiseman and Steve Swanson (along with ESA astronaut Alexander Gerst) placed a GoPro camera inside a bubble of water that was floating freely on board the International Space Station (ISS). As you can guess, the resulting shots were pretty spectacular. The astronauts snapped some standard footage with the GoPro, but they also filmed the whole affair with a special 3D camera.

Check ’em out after the break!
