Director Tim Miller has confirmed that the long rumored and oft-discussed Deadpool flick is close to being greenlit. Zombieland screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have complered a draft of the script, and likely star Ryan Reynolds has claimed the movie will be made “eventually” in a recent interview with Superhero Hype.

James Cameron‘s Avatar has remained popular for the 4 years since its release. And with at least 3 more films in the franchise scheduled, starting with the first in 2015, Disney apparently decided to strike while the iron is relatively hot.
Enter: Avatar Land at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. (more…)
In the summer of 1984, a little movie called Gremlins came out and it taught us all about the value of proper pet care, and the hidden dangers of Christmas shopping at curio shops run by racial stereotypes. But mostly it taught us to love. It taught us the love of seeing scaly-skinned puppets terrorize a small town, and it taught us to laugh. Am I exaggerating? Possibly, but one thing I can’t deny is that I’ve never seen this video before…. (more…)
If you’re the kind of person who reads Nerd Bastards on a regular basis, then the chances that you need to have the fact that Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. is a spin-off of last year’s Avengers film explained to you are rather slim.
However, it’s more than just geeks that watch TV, and while we represent a sizeable demographic–especially where TV viewers are concerned–ABC and the makers of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. are wise to be doing what they can to market their new series to a broader audience.
This new promo features a voice-over from Avengers star and Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. guest star Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill. She does her best to tie together the plots of the movie and the TV series….Observe:
Another convention is in the books for San Diego. One of the highlights was the X-Men: Days of Future Past panel. Missed it did you? Don’t feel bad. Recordings have finally begun making their way online and we have one!
Featuring the entire cast of Bryan Singer‘s 2014 sequel, with introductions to the cast by Bryan, the packed hall was treated to just how excited the actors themselves are for the fans and the film. Oh, and when we say entire cast, we mean the whole bloody cast. From the knight glory of both Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian McKellen to the Hollywood star power of James McAvoy, Ellen Page, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and Peter Dinklage, everyone was on hand to promote the Days of Future Past.
The video begins with a presentation of The Wolverine and fellow DOFP star Hugh Jackman and from 16 minutes in goes right into the Future Past panel. Check it out below.
The Dark Knight trilogy is simply the best three films of the entire Batman franchise, but fans of the Christopher Nolan epic hold the Dark Knight a bit closer to their cowls. It was arguably the most balanced of the trilogy and is still held in high regard five years after its release, although it does have faults that annoy even the purest Batman fan.
So the fellas over at Cinema Sins decided it was time to bring reality crashing down on us in a hilarious four-minute video pointing out every “sin” the Dark Knight committed. They even bring up points you may have missed after numerous viewings, some of which actually make sense. We would spoil the ending for you, but some people just want to watch the world burn.
Check out the clip below and see how many of your own theories you can pick out:
How well do you score? Or were you too busy saying ”Really!” through all of this?
For those looking for a double dose of head scratching revelations, Cinema Sins has covered The Dark Knight Rises as well and we’re guessing Batman Begins is somewhere in the batcave.
So. Any Star Wars Episode VII news today? Glad you asked.
Harrison Ford was in Chicago the other night for a red carpet premiere in his hometown, and WGN cornered him into talking about the latest developments in a galaxy far, far away. So is Han Solo going to be back for more fun and adventure? And is Ford down for the trip?
“I think it’s almost true,” Ford said. “I’m looking forward to it. It’s not in the bag yet, but I think it’s happening.”
Well that’s about as close as we’re going to get to a confirmation. Check out the video for yourself below:
In two days, on February 16, 2013–at 9:00 am PST, the nerd floodgates will open, and a large percentage of geekdom will descend upon the SDCC website, only one single thought repeating endlessly in their fevered brains:
Indeed, the San Diego Comic-Con…our Mecca, our Mothership, our Devils Tower, is upon us once again.
Now, I’ve never been fortunate enough to attend, but from what I gather, Comic-Con season begins with this crazed rush to register for badges…there are millions of foaming nerds who want them, and only about 100,000 available.
Bit of a pickle, yes?
That’s why the SDCC has released this handy-dandy instruction video (below) to help you along with this seemingly brutal registration process. It’s just a simple tutorial–and it doesn’t offer any sneaky tricks that’ll help you get an edge on your rivals (er…fellow con-goers), but it should help prevent some basic registration snafus.
We’ve all watched a show, or movie and seen a prop that made us think ”Man, I wish I could have that.” In the case of die-hard fans, however, they’ll spends hours, weeks, or years crafting their own replica. Their efforts build an even stronger connection to that piece of movie memorabilia they hold so dear.
Some people turn this love – and what many would call an obsession- into a full-time hobby. Often leading them into a career with special effects. One individual,who has done that exceedingly well, is Adam Savage – full-time special effects designer/fabricator and co-host of Mythbusters.
At last year’s XOXO Festival, an arts and technology conference held in Portland, Oregon, Adam shared his knowledge and love for the world of replica movie props and the connection it has to modern society.
Giving highlights to sites like The Replica Prop Builders Forum and his own experiences, this short twenty-minute presentation also revealed some techniques on how to start projects or future businesses of your very own. Watch the video below for the entire presentation.
If you’re interested in more stories from Adam, be sure to listen to his appearance in the Nerdist Podcast from back in 2010. He talks more about building his own movie replicas, including the Blade Runner Deckard gun. He also answers questions on prop builds from the audience. He even does stand up comedy (hilarious, but NSFW)!
