Sorta First Look at a New Dino to Appear in ‘Jurassic World’

- 11-17-14Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

JurassicWorld_NB

Every new Jurassic Park movie has featured a new dinosaur – or two, or three – to plague the brave humans crazy enough to go to an island filled with creatures whose Latin name is derived from the term “terrible lizards.” Speaking of terrible, it seems that some terrible things are in store for the characters in the upcoming fourth Jurassic Park movie, Jurassic World. The new film directed by Colin Trevorrow will feature some never-before-seen animals, and while we have yet to see any finished footage from the film (more on that later), we have now, apparently, gotten a look at one of those new dinosaurs featured in it. “Look” is a relative term in this case, but despite the, ahem, scale, it gives you a pretty good idea of what Trevorrow et al are cooking up.

Whenever Nerd Bastards goes to a con, we don’t just like to highlight the celebrity guests, news items and other things. No! We also like to put the camera on you, the fans. Those of you in costume anyway. So many fans get into an incredible amount of detail with their costumes, fret over the smallest detail and make sacrifices of comfort and mobility, so it’s only right that as we celebrate the culture, we also celebrate those that make the culture possible with their mad nerdiness. On this Thursday of Fan Expo 2014, we found judges, super-people, brains, robots, and something that looks suspiciously like something out of Will Graham’s nightmares. Also, some very impress LEGO sculptures were on display. All that, and MOAR, in this first photo gallery from Toronto’s National Fan Expo! (more…)

Screen Shot 2014-02-16 at 4.55.37 PM

Come with us now for an experience that will stress your senses and tickle your gag reflex AND your funny bone. The astounding, the horrifying, the morbidly obese, and infectiously clever — The BastardCast. We are thought stallions rolling across a docile plain, a dust cloud of airborne giggle bits trailing the swipe of our night black tails. You will suck the marrow from the bone of this podcast and it will fill you with justice, purpose, and also marrow. Which is so gross. (more…)

The BastardCast vs a Tubby Time Lord and Superman Hits the Sauce

BastardCast-089-TITLE

Most shows make you wait decades for a lost episode (suck it, Doctor Who!) The BastardCast plays by their own rules and releases one mere days after it was thought kidnapped by the forces of evil (faulty Toshiba). Really, it’s a long story involving hard drives and ninjas so we won’t bore you with all the exciting details (there was a car chase! Jason got shot in the knee!)

Joining Jeremy and Jason on this unearthed artifact is long time friend of people he’s known for a long time, Chris Cummins for a rousing hour of fart jokes, geekery and, nerd news from 8 days ago… because all of this stuff STILL MATTERS! (more…)

From what we’ve seen in the trailers, The LEGO Movie has the potential be the best movie… EVER. Not only does it have a cast of thousands (I mean, look at all those minifigs!) but it’s starring everyone from superheroes like Batman, Wonder Woman, and Superman to classic, retro Space LEGO guys–even God shows up! In its latest and possibly greatest trailer, The LEGO Movie spoofs Man of Steel.

So, while you await the next inevitable rumor about Ghostbusters 3, check out these cool 30th Anniversary Ghostbusters toys. And then go buy them. And then play with them like you were 8-years-old again. (more…)

‘LEGO Marvel Super Heroes’ Spawns Webseries

It’s another one of those moves that make it real tough to be a bigger DC fan than a Marvel one. Unlike when LEGO Batman 2 spawned a movie, which really turned out to be a collection of all the game’s cutscenes, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is getting its own spinoff webseries. As in, original material set in the LEGO world of Marvel. (more…)

Batman Fails, Humorously, in Second ‘LEGO Movie’ Trailer

A second trailer has released for The LEGO Movie, so if somehow the first one didn’t get you amped to see this hilarious look at the world of multicolored bricks, then there’s no hope for you. You’ll never understand the joy of tiny plastic Batman failing, repeatedly, to throw a batarang. (more…)
