Ever say something out loud that didn’t seem so bad in your head, but after it came out of your mouth you realized what a dumb, dumb thing you just said? Odds are good that actor Jesse Eisenberg is feeling that way after committing a pretty egregious vocal blunder last week at San Diego Comic Con – although so far, Eisenberg has yet to apologize or show any remorse for his statement.
In this day in age when celebrities (and most people, really) are so afraid of potentially offending a person or a group, or are so cautious that something they say or do will be caught on camera or video and taken out of context, isn’t is great when we get to see a celeb just let loose with some foul language or a sick joke, to help remind us lowly fans that they are, in fact, people just like us? A perfect example that springs to mind is Bryan Cranston’s epic (and epically left-field) burn on a fan during a Q&A panel recently at San Diego Comic Con. Well, hang on to your hats, kids, because I’ve got another raunchy celebrity experience to share with you!
Oh, Ani! Has Jar-Jar been that bad of an influence on you? As first reported by TMZ, the actor who played young Anakin Skywalker in Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace was involved in a bit of a crazy scenario over the weekend that evokes meme-like comparisons to his pod-racing days. (more…)
Creating destination theme attractions based on material from the movies goes back to when Walt Disney had an idea to turn acres of prime California real estate into an ode to the intellectual property he created that can be enjoyed by the entire family. Now, in that fine tradition, fans of The Hunger Games films will be able to go to a park where they can live in the dystopian/draconian future created by author Suzanne Collins and the films that are based on her works. Yay? Yes, now soon all the fun of hunting down adolescences in a brutal and booby trapped environment will be yours according to a recent press release. (more…)
Taking a page out of Marvel’s masterful playbook, Paramount has decided to create a sprawling, expansive universe for Michael Bay’s Transformers franchise. Not taking a page out of Marvel’s playbook, the movies will, presumably, remain shallow husks of the original franchise children loved. Read on.
I don’t know of anyone who didn’t love Guardians of the Galaxy, and luckily we’ll get another dose of our titular heroes in…uh…Gnardians of the Galaxy. Wood Rocket is producing a new porn parody of the MARVEL movie and, while all we have to go on is the poster (below) , I think it will accomplish the intended purpose. (more…)
When wrestling Superfan Kris Laufer and his group of wrestling cosplayers showed up at this week’s RAW in full costume, you’d think that WWE staff would be impressed, excited, and welcoming to such incredible cosplay. Seriously, what better way to show fans are pumped up than when they cosplay some of wrestling’s favorite characters? Turns out, that wasn’t the case and the group was forced to choose: Wear their costumes or lose their front row ($100) tickets to the event. (more…)
Springfield, the capital of the great State of Illinois. It was the place Abraham Lincoln came to in 1831 to being his law practice and later his political career, sitting in the legislature there as part of the General Assembly. Of course, Lincoln is not the only great Springfieldianite to contribute positively to the fabric of American society. The Flower City was also home to Civil War general and later President Ulysses S. Grant, founder of General Foods Marjorie Merriweather Post, and the famed frontman for Morris Day and the Time Morris Day. But now the reputation of the City of Springfield is forever tarnished as Mayor J. Michael Houston has given the keys to the city to Cobra Commander. Yes, that Cobra Commander. (more…)
If you live in North America, and anywhere west of the Rockies, then you’re probably freezing right now. Perhaps you can be comforted and warmed by the idea that, at least, you’re not going thorough it alone, but as it stands right now, forecasters are saying that this is going to be the coldest February on record. Being completely irrational human beings, people are looking for someone to blame. For the cold. And the good folks in Police Department of Harlan City, Kentucky, think they’ve found the culprit, Princess Elsa from Disney animated movie Frozen. Presumably, Mr. Freeze, Captain Cold and the X-Man Iceman have been accounted for, so a warrant has been issued for the immediate arrest of Elsa. (more…)
