As you may or may not be aware (but you should be because we darn well told you yesterday) Conan O’Brien is filming his TBS talk show in front of a live audience in San Diego through till Saturday night. With such a popular stage front and center, it should come as no surprise that producers and studios looking to promote major TV and movie projects at San Diego Comic Con would turn to Conan as a platform, and wouldn’t you know it… Anxious to get some insight into the upcoming Batman V. Superman movie? Well, Conan had a super advanced clip, procured “illegally,” of the upcoming superhero fight film. Be careful though, because there’s a reason that sneak peak is in quote marks in the headline. (more…)

super power beat down

Ever since that historical moment when two comic book geeks managed to find themselves in the same room together, the question of which super hero or villain would win in a fight to the finish has been an inevitable topic of discussion. One team of YouTubers decided to make a career out of these great debates and thus, Super Power Beat Down was born. So who’s up this time around? Why, it’s a tag-team match consisting of none-other-than The Joker and Harley Quinn and they’re facing off against an equally chaotic pair in the form of Deadpool and Domino. Scroll on to watch the video and see what everyone has to say about this particular match-up. (more…)

Chuck Palahniuk has written some seriously twisted books over the years. I’ve read Fight Club, Choke, and Invisible Monsters. The thought of him writing a children’s book is simply… horrifying. I have to admit though that while horrifying it is also, at the same time undeniably intriguing. So when I saw this video of Palahniuk reading Fight Club 4 Kids I knew I’d be watching it as fast as I could click the mouse. This is some seriously twisted and wonderful humor. (more…)

Fallout 3 holds a special place in all our gaming gamer hearts, but that doesn’t stop Smoosh Games from giving it the Honest Game Trailer Treatment. Even when blasting some particular aspect of the game, you can’t help but feel their love for the very thing they are attempting to lambaste. This might be the most conflicted Love/Hate relationship in the Known Universe, but maybe it’s more simply a Love/Annoyed relationship. (more…)

An Honest Trailer for Toy Story? Perish the thought. More often than not, the targets for Screen Junkies‘ Honest Trailers segment is a movie that doesn’t have a lot of, shall we say, renown. Sometimes a Matrix, or Jurassic Park, or Dark Knight slips through, but recent victims have included Armageddon, Fifty Shades of Grey and Ang Lee’s Hulk. So what, oh what can they say about Toy Story? It’s a modern masterpiece, the first of a long string of Pixar hits and an artistic work that revolutionized how animated works are conceived and created. Well, it turns out that Toy Story is pretty messed up on a lot of levels. Don’t believe me? Well this is an honest trailer after all. (more…)

We knew it was coming, how could the folks behind How It Should Have Ended not take on the biggest movie of the summer? In fact, it seemed so big that HISHE have, for the first time, created multiple HISHE videos for Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. Here’s part one.

Oh.. and for those of you wondering.. the SPOILER WARNING is kinda implied. I mean how could there not be spoilers in this video? C’mon.
