Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks.

The Fifth Element is an incredibly awesome and extremely rare sci-fi/action movie in that it never got a sequel, a prequel, or became part of a trilogy. I don’t think there’s a hit genre movie that doesn’t stay a stand alone picture anymore. But, keeping The Fifth Element well alone means writer/director Luc Besson never returned to science fiction, and that’s a bummer.
Not anymore! Variety‘s reporting Besson is planning a, “sci-fi adventure about a space and time traveling special agent.” Or as the web’s been labeling the project, a Doctor Who/Jame Bond crossover because, y’know, it sounds apt. The film will be based on the Gallic comic book series, Valerian, and you can see a sample of the artwork above. Cinema Blend has summed it up as thus,
The comics center on the titular hero who is described by Booklist as “A little bit Dr. [sic] Who, a little bit James Bond.” With the help of his sassy sidekick, Laureline, Valerian takes on missions from the Galaxity organization, traveling through space and time in incredible adventures.
Give this guy anything he wants! I need to see this movie!
Unfortunately, there aren’t anymore details available because it’s unknown which arc of Valerion Besson is adapting. And it also looks like it might be a while before this project really gets rolling. Besson’s got a full schedule ahead of him what with work on his next feature, Malavita, which stars Robert De Niro and an untitled action-thriller shooting early next year with Angelina Jolie.
But it’s likely, possibly happening and I couldn’t be happier. Soo…who else is watching The Fifth Element tonight?
Got a favorite movie quote? Ever thought of doing something with that quote? Well, Goran Patlejch (a.k.a. Goenetix) did and while they may be simple looking, they are all awesome in their own way. From Star Wars to Big Lebowski, to Matrix and Terminator, Patlejch used his art skills to showcase famous movie quotes. Check out after the jump to see more of Goenetix movie quote art and see if maybe your favorite quote is there. (more…)
(Every friday, here at nerdbastards, you can come to find the sexy side of nerd pop culture in a little weekly feature we call “Sexy Cosplay of The Week”. Cosplay is a known term in the nerd-verse when fans dress up as their favorite characters from pop culture, either from movies, comics, TV, gaming and so on. A lot of times it’s quite sexy and what we do is find the sexy and bring it to you, you’re welcome.)
Yes, we could always go back and watch the real topless Lee Loo played by Milla Jovovich in The Fifth Element but we’ve seen that hundreds of times already (or at least this bastard has). It’s always sexier seeing a real life nerd girl dress up as the ass kicking, orange haired, multipass holding Leeloo. The white sectional piece Leeloo was re-born into is quite a popular costume in the cosplay-verse (thank you god) but Anna here from her PRON site, nerdpron.com (Note: link is for 18 and older) does it better than most. Perhaps it’s her exposed boobies that made her stand out from the rest. OK, we admit it, they did but come on, you can’t argue with boobies now can you? On a side note: Does anybody else have a craving for fried chicken (reference from the movie)?
