A few months ago, we received a teaser trailer for the upcoming Christopher Robin film. It didn’t show a lot of the premise of the film, but what it did show was Winnie the Pooh in live action setting. While there were people the criticised how Pooh looked, the overall thoughts were positive. Having a film that has Pooh search out an older Christopher Robin seems like the exact film we need. Then came the release of a new trailer today, and I can say it hit every emotion it needed.
Time for your weekly dose of the fantastic fandom based art to hit the web this week with your Nerd Art Dump. Each and every week we pick and choose through the masses of prints and pics on the digital frontier to give you nothing but the best to fill your geek needs. So on with the dump! ABOVE: Edward Hopper’s Nighthawks is often fodder for the homage/pastiche treatment, however World’s Finest Diner by Ian Navarromight just have become my all time favorite. I know this won’t happen, but if the powers at WB wanna base that whole Batman vs Superman movie off this image I am totally ok with that. The conflict could be over who picks up the cheque! (more…)
Each and every week we scour the Internet for nothing but the best in nerd based art. We leave no digital stone unturned, we poke and prod every net based nook and cranny. Why? Because we love you, and we love to bring you weekly Nerd Art Dumps.
Sometimes fighting supernatural threats just needs a female touch, so why not have suit up occasional ghost buster and resident Ghostbuster‘s secretary Janine Melnitz to tackle the ghosts and goblins. Nothing sexier then a woman in uniform, right fellas? Judging by the boys reactions though they need to step up their game, otherwise they’ll be looking for a new job (again!) [Deviant Art]
Hit the jump for Pokemon, Lord of the Rings and MOAR (more…)
The Interwebz is a great place for nerdy art and the like. A lot of the time it’s crazy things like Tetris porn or the big reveal of where Catwoman stashes the hidden scepter Bastet while on the run. Hey, it’s the internet folks. Luckily there is always the counter balance of some mind blowing nerd based art. We collect it, you enjoy it, and we are all better for it.
ABOVE: Aww, looks like someone got their giant gamma powered butt stuck in the “werm hole exparimunt” at Avengers HQ. A wonderful blend of Winnie the Pooh and The Avengers, this piece by cpwilsoniii also defines every comic nerds nightmares now that the Mouse owns the House of Ideas. [Deviant Art]
Hit the jump for an anime Princess Peach, X-babies, Batman in chains and MOAR!
It seems that the beloved bear, Winnie The Pooh, is coming back to a theater near you!
For the first time in 35 years, Disney is releasing a feature-length movie based on five previously unadapted stories featuring the lovable bear and his friends getting into all sorta of trouble. The film, entitled Winnie The Pooh, is set to be released on April 15, 2011 in the UK and July 15, 2011 in the US.
Disney has also released the official synopsis of the movie, some pictures located below, and a few tidbits on the voices that will appear in the film (courtesy of GeekTyrant):
Walt Disney Animation Studios returns to the Hundred Acre Wood with “Winnie the Pooh,” the first big-screen Pooh adventure from Disney animation in more than 35 years. With the charm, wit and whimsy of the original featurettes, this all-new movie reunites audiences with the philosophical “bear of very little brain” and friends Tigger, Rabbit, Piglet, Kanga, Roo—and last, but certainly not least, Eeyore, who has lost his tail. “Well a tail is either there or it isn’t there,” said Pooh. “And yours isn’t… there.” Owl sends the whole gang on a wild quest to save Christopher Robin from an imaginary culprit. It turns out to be a very busy day for a bear who simply set out to find some hunny. Inspired by five stories from A.A. Milne’s books in Disney’s classic, hand-drawn art style, “Winnie the Pooh” hits theaters July 15, 2011.
The voice cast includes Craig Ferguson, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Bud Luckey (director of the Pixar short Boundin’). There will be seven new songs from Bobby Lopez as well as the Pooh theme song performed by Zooey Deschanel.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen any sort of PSA, then again, it’s been a while since I’ve watched anything on PBS (go a head and boo me). The awesome folks over at CollegeHumor just released this hilarious PSA about cartoon bears and how we should be careful when around them since a bear is a bear. You don’t believe me? Then check the video out as even the cutest, non-harmful looking bear can still be deadly.
Internet has been kind for folks that has artistic skills and ideas for being the place to have them show their creation off while all I have to show was my old manga scanlations done on MS Paint. Juan Pablo Bravo, who did this awesome Pixar Character Size Chart, stepped his game up and jumped from two hundred characters to two hundred and fifty. He has them listed in order from the film’s release date and although it’s an estimation of their height, I say its pretty exact. Check the massive the picture out as it may listed an old movie you may have forgotten. Also, stop by Bravo’s page to look up some other things he has done.
Easter will be here in less than a week, which means that Walgreen’s has been forcing rabbits on you since December. If you’re tired of stale chocolate bunnies and pastel-colored junk but still want to get into the spirit (Wait, just how do you get into the spirit for Easter? No, seriously. The books say that a guy died and then came back to life. How does this turn into “Happy Easter?”), look no further. The five sly animated rabbits below will save you from pink Peep hell (and if you’re reeeeeally nice, I’ll give you a bonus character).
