Star Wars is transformed into a jaw dropping 80's style anime in this TIE fighter short film!

Back in September I shared an amazing 2 minute Star Wars 80's style anime video that fans absolutely loved! Now I am happy to share the completed video from OtaKing77077 that is 7 minutes long.
"What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that's all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards. Drawn and animated by yours truly over 4 years' worth of weekends, with music by the living guitar solo Zak Rahman and sound design by up and coming audio technician Joseph Leyva. Fans of Lucasarts' seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day..." This video is absolutely mind blowing and I know I am not the only one who would love to see this as a full television series!

If you are a fan of the hit Comedy Central show Key and Peele then I have some amazing news for you! Deadline is reporting that Paramount Pictures has just bought a pitch to the show's wildly popular "Substitute Teacher" sketch and are looking into creating it into a full feature length film!

The sketch comes from comedy duo Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele and focuses on a substitute teacher from the inner city, Mr. Garvey played by Keegan-Michael Key, who is strict about not being messed with as he takes attendance in a class of white, suburban high school students.
"Keegan-Michael Key will reprise his role as as the over-the-top substitute Mr. Garvey, and Jordan Peele will portray a rival teacher determined to be the students’ favorite." The script will be written by Key and Peele producers Rich Talarico and Alex Rubens and Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will produce. If this gets made into a movie I will definitely see it! As a teacher I find the sk…

See the first official photo of Ryan Reynolds in the Deadpool costume!

Deadpool fans have been waiting patiently and the moment is finally here! Ryan Reynolds has tweeted the first official photo of him wearing the Deadpool costume that will be used for his upcoming film Deadpool and it looks like it was literally ripped out of the pages of the comic. WOW! I absolutely love the look. How could you not? It is literally the comic costume in real life. The detail on this costume is absolutely amazing. I also think it is really funny that they used Burt Reynold's old photo as inspiration to this one.

What do you think of the new costume now that we finally have a great look at it?

Find out why Batman and Superman begin fighting in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice!

It should come as no surprise that in a film titled "Batman v Superman" that the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel would be squaring off against each other. The secret however has been why are they fighting each other.

We already know that this film will be inspired by the iconic Frank Miller comic story "The Dark Knight Returns". In this story, Superman is sent by the President of the U.S.A. to go take Batman down. However, there seems to be a small twist in the film.

*Spoilers below* 

"In Batman v Superman Superman is no lackey of the government; if anything many of the world's governments distrust the guy. But it is Superman who goes to Gotham and starts the confrontation... at the behest of Lex Luthor. And unlike The Dark Knight Returns, Superman comes out swinging, pulverizing the Batmobile with one punch. Why would Superman do Lex Luthor's bidding? What is Lex hoping to accomplish? That would be spoiling. But know that when the fight is over, Ba…

Sony acquires the rights to Robotech and announces plans for a film franchise!

If you were a cartoon lover in the 1980s then you may remember the popular show Robotech. It started out in Japan in 1982 but then was adapted in the United States in 1985.

Sony has just acquired the film rights to Robotech and are already announcing that they are preparing to build it into a live action franchise. The show focused on Earth developing giant robotic mech suits from a crashed alien ship found in the South Pacific. With this new technology, Earth fought off extraterrestrial invasions.

Speaking on behalf of Sony Michael De Luca stated;
"“Robotech is unique in that it has always been a marriage of spectacle with human characters that seem drawn from life. That’s why we are so excited to be working with Mark and Gianni as we move forward on this project. With a history that offers an epic love triangle, a renegade hero, and a world on the brink of extinction, Robotech offers a wide scope and a rich and impressive universe where the story possibilities are endless.”&quo…

Jesse L. Martin and The Flash costars sing a gospel version of Firefly's "Ballad of Serenity" to thank Joss Whedon.

This video is quickly going viral and there is a good reason why - it is AMAZING.

The Flash stars Jesse L. Martin, Carlos Valdes, and Rick Cosnett wanted to say thank you to Joss Whedon for donating to their kickstarter campaign (enough that he carried them to their needed goal) and they came up with the best way possible; by singing the "Ballad of Serenity" from the show Firefly a capella with a gospel twist. It sounds absolutely beautiful.
"A few days ago Joss pledged an outstanding amount to "The Letter Carrier" Kickstarter campaign. His pledge was above and beyond all the reward categories, and an appropriate thank you was in order. As always, music is the gate way to the soul, and this song speaks to us as well as to our story and characters!" You can take a look at their kickstarter project and find out more info on it here: The Letter Carrier.

Watch the trailer to the new Inspector Gadget series on Netflix!

Word spread not too long ago that Netflix was looking to create their own Inspector Gadget television show and now we have the first trailer! The new series will be a 3D animated series starring Inspector Gadget himself, his daughter Penny, their dog Brain, and the evil Dr. Claw. It appears as though this might be a continuation type story as Penny seems a little older and apparently Dr. Claw "is back". It looks like this show may have a new theme song which is a shame because the original was fantastic! It looks like this show will be targeted at children but you can bet fans of the original series will check it out as well.

Inspector Gadget will be on Netflix tomorrow, March 27, 2015.

Find out what 7 actors were almost cast as Marvel's Iron Man!

Marvel made history when they open up their own movie studio, Marvel Studios, and released their first in house film, Iron Man. They took a chance and cast actor Robert Downey Jr. who to many people was considered washed up but he nailed the role of Tony stark like nobody else could. This film also contained a end credit scene that would soon change the movie industry for years to come.

However, Robert Downey Jr. was not the first choice for the role of Tony Stark / Iron Man. YouTuber "Mr Sunday Movies" has created a great video that discusses the seven other various actors that were being considered for the role at one point in time. For example, did you know that Tom Cruise was lined up for a version of the film in the 90's that was co-written by Stan Lee? Find out really cool facts like this and more in the great video below!If you could have cast Tony Stark, who would you have chosen?

Could this be the voice Jared Leto will use while portraying the Joker in the film Suicide Squad?

Normally, fans have to wait for the studio to release hints and first looks at a film's new character but actor Jared Leto has regularly taken to social media to update fans with his transformation into the iconic DC Comics role of "The Joker" for the film Suicide Squad. During a recent performance with his band 30 Seconds to Mars, Leto was talking to the crowd and randomly slipped into a growl of a voice that very much sounds like the Joker. It appears as though he had treated fans to their first "look" at what the Joker will sound like without them realizing it. Lucky for us one fan got it on video! Watch the short video below and see if you agree that this could be Leto's voice for the Joker.

Suicide Squad is set to be released in theaters on August 5, 2016.

Man At Arms: Reforged creates Link's Hylian shield and original Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda!

If you instinctively grab your wallet after watching this video you aren't the only one! The newest episode of Man At Arms: Reforged has the team creating Link's iconic Hylian Shield from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda franchise. However, they don't just stop there! They also forged the original Master Sword to go along with it! The Legend of Zelda is by far my favorite video game franchise so watching this made me smile from ear to ear. The result of these two projects came out amazing and would certainly be worthy of being in The Hero of Time's arsenal.

You can also watch Link's modern Master Sword and Fierce Deity Sword be forged as well!

Hilariously great rap battle has Hodor squaring off against Groot!

Get ready to see the rap battle of the century! A while back a funny LEGO video showed fans that Groot, Hodor, and Chewbacca can understand each other without difficulty and it seems that two of the characters are back to prove who is the true lyrical genius of the group. In this hilarious rap battle, Hodor (Game of Thrones) will square off against Groot (Guardians of the Galaxy). There are no subtitles in this video so you'll have to make up your own mind on who won from the tone of the voices and the inflection in which the rap is said. The two do receive a little help in the singing department from Rocket Raccoon and Bran Stark which was funny. The cosplayers here did a wonderful job! Watch below and let me know who you think won this rap battle!

UPDATE (3-26-15): Turn on the subtitles to see what Hodor and Groot are actually saying! Brilliant! Now that you know what they are saying, who do you think wins this rap battle?

Bryan Singer announces who was cast as Jubilee for X-Men: Apocalypse!

Time to rejoice X-Men fans! Director Bryan Singer has posted a photo on his Instagram account a photo of a young actress that will be playing the mutant Jubilee in the upcoming film X-Men: Apocalypse. Previous films had Jubilee as an Easter egg in the backgrounds of scenes or scenes that were entirely cut from the film but I am really hoping that Jubilee is a full character in this upcoming film! Are you excited to see Jubilee finally get her moment to shine in the films? What do you think about the actress that was cast for the part?

X-Men: Apocalypse will be in theaters on May 27, 2016.

The new look for Fantatsic Four's The Thing is revealed on an international billboard.

Until now, fans have not gotten a look at what Ben Grimm, aka The Thing, would look like in Josh Trank's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot. (There was a leaked image a while back but it was a prop photo.) A new poster from 20th Century Fox has put out an international billboard that revealed The Thing's look in the film. This is a very odd choice for this reveal. You would think it would be in a trailer or official movie poster or something. You can take a look at The Thing in the photo below.

So what do you think? Worth the wait? He doesn't look bad but then again he doesn't look drastically different than the 2005 film. He has a duller color which is nice and the rocks looks more jagged to make then look more real I suppose.

Honest Video Game Trailer - Mario Party 10!

The Honest Trailers lately have been getting a lot more honest lately. In the newest "Honest Game Trailer" Smosh Games brutally rips apart the newest game in the Mario Party franchise, Mario Party 10.
"From the company that spent more time raising you than your parents ever did, comes the same friendship-ruining action from Smash Bros. without all the fun game play to distract you from your hate!" I laughed throughout this entire trailer and couldn't agree more when the narrator loses it over the game not having an online multiplayer mode. I understand Nintendo is all about bringing people together to play but sometimes that is just not an option for someone and they still want to play with friends. A board game game seems like the perfect opportunity to add this feature. But ... they didn't. So sit back and get ready to laugh. A lot. Enjoy!

The first photo of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is released!

The very first photograph of Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has surfaced curtesy of Entertainment Weekly! This first photo doesn't show you much more than a picture of Eisenberg with a shaved head but I think Eisenberg definitely has the look of a younger Luthor. The photo comes from set photographer Clay Enos.

Speaking about ths particular Lex Luthor, director Zack Snyder stated,
"“He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” says Snyder, “other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course.” “Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake,” says Snyder. “He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.”" That is a pretty interesting description of Lex Luthor. It'll be exciting to see how his character unfolds in the film.

Voldemort gets funky in "Dark Lord Funk" - A hilarious Harry Potter parody of "Uptown Funk"!

There are parodies and then there are epic parodies. This video is definitely an epic parody! It's time to liten to the Dark Lord of the magical world get down in this video titled "Dark Lord Funk" that is a Harry Potter parody of "Uptown Funk" by Mark Ronson featuring Bruno Mars.

I have to say that everything in this video is perfect. The lyrics are hilarious and perfect for this parody (and can be read on the YouTube page), the cosplays done for this video are spot on, and the video overall is extremely well made. This is one of those catchy parodies that you won't mind watching a few times over. Enjoy!

A special thank you to my friend Jessica for finding this video and showing me. It is great!

Fantastic LEGO stop motion video of The Matrix lobby shootout scene!

I feel like this is a particular video that we have seen many variations of over the years but it never seems to get old. Check out this great LEGO stop motion video of the Lobby shootout scene from The Matrix. This particular video may not be the smoothest out there but it still stands out among the best to me. One thing that it has that made it stand out is the use of clay/play-doh to simulate where the bullets are hitting and the character's blood. The video is a lot of fun and is well done. It definitely deserves a watch. Enjoy!

John Williams leaves Abbey Road and the London Symphony Orchestra to score Star Wars: The Force Awakens in Los Angeles!

Star Wars fans everywhere will be pleased to hear that legendary composer John Williams will be composing the score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. However, this time around it will be a little different than when Williams scored the previous six films in the franchise.

In the past Williams always scored the films at Abbey Road in London, England with the London Symphony Orchestra. He did this for all six current Star Wars films. This time around however, it has been confirmed that Williams will be recording the score to The Force Awakens in Los Angeles, California. This will mark the first time a Star Wars score has been recorded in the United States. It is being reported that this move is happening because of an editing collaboration to get the film finished on time.

Williams shared some very kind words about working in both countries:
"“I’ve had the privilege of working with the very best musicians in both the U.K. and the U.S.,” says Williams. “The London Symphony Orchestra…

Marvel may have already cast Captain Marvel and we could possibly see her in Avengers: Age of Ultron!

*Unconfirmed Rumor*

It is being reported by Latino-Review's Roberto Gonzalez that Marvel may be a few steps ahead of where fans think they are when it comes to Captain Marvel, aka Carol Danvers. Gonzalez himself states that this news is at the moment unconfirmed and are therefore just rumors.

News is spreading however that Marvel may have already cast Captain Marvel in secret and fans may be seeing her as a small cameo in Avengers: Age of Ultron.
"RT! HOT #MARVEL #RUMOR ABOUT #CAPTAINMARVEL #SPOILER Apparently, from what I'm being told, the rumor is that the studio has cast the role of Carol Danvers & keeping it top secret. I'm also being told we will first see her in #AVENGERS #AgeofUltron as originally written in previous drafts of the screenplay. In terms of the standalone film, the Marvel brain trust has blocked out the plot & story with the intention of bringing an established writer to write the script. Comic writer Kelly Sue DeConnick wanted to take a c…

Broken Lizard announces Super Troopers 2! Donate meow to their Indiegogo to get the film made!

Alright Broken Lizard fans! It's time for a very important announcement. Meow listen up!

Today to Broken Lizard comedy team confirmed that Super Troopers 2 is happening and launched an Indiegogo campaign to get it funded. The script is ready and the studio is willing to make the film. Now they just need their fans' help to get the funds. (This is becoming an increasing habit with celebs and their projects huh?) The team needs to raise $2 million by April 24, 2015 in order to get this film made and if the campaign fails then we'll most likely never get to see the film. Ever. In the hilarious campaign launch video, which can be seen below, the team discusses how the $2 million will be used to create the bare bones film, however, if they can raise more then the excess money will be used to make the film even better. There is a lot of perks that go with donating to their cause ranging from movie tickets and copies of the film to visiting the set and even keeping the squad car …

Matt Smith's role in Terminator Genisys is revealed!

Until now fans have only been able to speculate as to who actor Matt Smith (Doctor Who) was playing in the upcoming Terminator Genisys. All the guessing is now over though as his character's identity has been revealed!

*Spoilers for the film ahead!*

We know that Smith's character would be a new character to the franchise who has a strong connection to John Conner but the truth of his character is so much more. According to Latino Review, test screenings have revealed that Matt Smith character is a very big deal.
"In Terminator: Genisys Matt Smith plays the embodiment of Skynet. Similar to Helena Bonham Carter's role in McG's Terminator: Salvation, Smith will be the antagonist system given form, different from the nebulous corporate villainy of Terminator 2: Judgement Day and vague apocalypse technophobia of the first." This is an interesting idea but I am curious to see how it all plays out in the film. Do you think Matt Smith being the embodiment of Skynet is…

Nintendo President says The Legend of Zelda Netflix series rumors are inaccurate.

It was earlier reported that Nintendo would be teaming up with Netflix to bring a live action television show focusing on The Legend of Zelda to its fans. The show would have been a family style Game of Thrones set in the The Legend of Zelda universe.

Things now seem like they may have been misunderstood somewhere down the line. Nintendo President and CEO Satoru Iwata has come forward and has stated that the rumors of the new The Legend of Zelda television series is based off of incorrect information.
"“As of now, I have nothing new to share with you in regard to the use of our IPs for any TV shows or films, but I can at least confirm that the article in question is not based on correct information,”" Fans were largely split on the creation of a television series but this is sad news to me. I was looking forward to seeing what they could do with such a rich and detailed franchise.

20th Century Fox reveals a new Fantastic Four poster featuring the team's abilities!

With the exception of Reed Richard's, aka Mr. Fantastic, stretching ability you get a glimpse at everyone's powers in this poster which is cool. I kind of wish there was a way to include Reed as well though. Maybe stretch his arms a little or something. Anyway, its a pretty cool poster and we'll have to wait and see how this film turns out.

Man at Arms forges Link's Master Sword from The Legend of Zelda!

Wow. I could have sworn I shared this when it was first published but I cannot find it on my site so here it is!

This is a look back to when Master Swordsmith Tony Swatton was doing video for Man At Arms. Watch as he forges the legendary Master Sword from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series that is used by the hero Link. Tony did a great job and watching this weapon be forged was really cool. This is my favorite video game franchise so this excited me a lot. Wonderful work!

Honest Trailers - The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (feat. HISHE)!

Here is one of the best "Honest Trailers" I have seen in a while. Focusing on Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, this newest video brutally lays into the films and shows you why The Hobbit trilogy just did not live up to The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also couldn't agree more with the fact that the dragon attack scene on LakeTown should have been the ending to the second film. It was extremely jarring to be thrown into that sequence mid scene at the start of this film. Screen Junkies also teamed up with "How It Should Have Ended" for a hilarious scene towards the end of this video. Enjoy!

The X-Files is confirmed to return for a six episode event!

When it came to television in the mid 90's, there was certainly one show that stood out among the rest; X-Files. It has been 13 long years since the show left the airwaves in 2002 but the time have come to get FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully back together.

For those not in the know, "The X-Files follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena."

Rumors had been circulating but it is now confirmed that show creator Chris Carter along with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson are coming back for a six episode event.
"“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”" It'll certainly be interesting to see what they can do in just six episodes and six stories but the news is definitely exciting fans everywhere.…

Executive producer for Game of Thrones confirms the TV show will spoil the books' ending.

I feel like this shouldn't be coming to a surprise to fans but the executive producers, D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, of the hit HBO show Game of Thrones has come forward and confirmed that the show will be spoiling the ending of the books for fans. 

The show has been quickly catching up to the books and the next book in the series is not scheduled for release until 2016. While speaking to the Oxford Union David Benioff stated,
""Luckily, we've been talking about this with George for a long time, ever since we saw this could happen, and we know where things are heading. And so we'll eventually, basically, meet up at pretty much the same place where George is going; there might be a few deviations along the route, but we're heading towards the same destination. I kind of wish that there were some things we didn't have to spoil, but we're kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. The show must go on... and that's what we're going to do.&quo…

So far Lawrence's career has been wildly successful and it has included two very successful franchises ; The Hunger Games and X-Men.

Another new clip has surfaced for Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and this time around it focuses on what Grant Ward and Agent 33 have been up to. This new clip comes from the next new episode "Love in the Time of Hydra" that will air tomorrow night.

Commenting on Ward and Agent 33, Brett Dalton who plays Ward stated,
"“I think what we’re seeing now is an unlikely duo who have both lost someone who gave them orders.
