What If Disney's Animal Characters Looked Like Us?


Tumblr user Pugletto not only has some fantastic art work on her page, she also has a fantastic imagination and a love of Disney.

Sometimes I'll draw animal characters as people. Below you'll find a collection of drawings tailored to each universe - a complete 'what if' series of drawings, depicting human characters in the place of animal roles.

The artist of this super neat trailer said he "painted in Photoshop using the brush 'Grut Oil Dense Weather'".

Again, we're almost out of patience with the Mad Max stuff. But for right now, we're still all about it.

In case you've forgotten, Warner Bros has been trying to make a Westernized, live-action version of the 1988 anime Akira for years.  Widely regarded as one of the most groundbreaking and well-loved animes of all time, most fans don't see the need for an American Akira, especially not with big Hollywood names like Chris Pine, James Franco, Andrew Garfield, and Robert Pattinson rumored to be attached to the project.  Things have been pretty quiet on the Akira front for a while, but a new name has cropped up, and one that isn't so bad. 

Netflix's Daredevil showrunner Marco Ramirez has apparently been hired to write a screenplay for the film.  In addition to the new Daredevil series, Ramirez has also written for Orange is the New Black and Sons of Anarchy.  There's no questioning his talent; Ramirez can certainly pen a good script, but the question remains of whether or not this film should even be made.

 Does Ramirez's involvement affect how you feel about an American Akira?  Would you watch it?

The extended Spectre trailer for Daniel Craig's fourth reprisal of 007 has hit and it looks every bit as vague as the title suggests.

James Bond apparently has a secret. Who saw that coming??

With Skyfall vaulting back the franchise after its Quantum of Solace low, many are hoping for the impossible — two good Bond films in a row.

But even if it stinks, we'll always have dat turtleneck:



Spectre will sneak into theaters Nov. 6.

A synopsis finally comes for Independence Day

Indiwire found this synopis of the planned Independence Day sequel over at Rotten Tomatoes:

"We always knew they were coming back. After INDEPENDENCE DAY redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens' advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction."

So that's great and all, but it is basically is just vague enough for them to do anything with it. It's a teaser that teases nothing. 

This is how I feel about Independence Day hype:



What about you?

Based off the best-selling book of the same name (but already seeming to have way more depth), The Martian tells of the harrowing survival of an astronaut left behind on a mission to Mars.

This is definitely one of those trailers that gives you basically the full movie in the span of three minutes, so if you have an allergy to spoilers, beware.

Also, ever since we posted this article about a prevalent sound in new trailers, it's all we can here. It happens like three times in this one.

HBO is getting back into the mockumentary game with the upcoming movie 7 Days in Hell starring Kit Harrington and Andy Samberg as two rival tennis pros.

The minute-long trailer only gives you a taste of the tournament to come, but it at least leaves us comfortable in the knowledge that Will Forte is involved. We can all sleep easy after that.

This marks a presumptive comedic turn for Harrington, who has mostly stayed on the dour side of things as Jon Snow on Game of Thrones. Although, he has shown that he can be pretty funny if given the chance.

Maybe you would call this a sequel? Even so, it features a number of comedians that have pretty decent careers. So, maybe they will raise the level of what looks to be a possibly disappointing return for the Griswolds.

Have You Noticed This Sound That's Now in Every Trailer?


We're not talking about that BWAAAAAM sound from Inception which still manages to catch the ear of most composers. This is a really distinct ramping down sound like WUUUUUUUuuuuum.

Check out this great supercut of it from recent trailers.

Deep Dive: San Andreas and the Return of Natural Disaster Movies?


After taking a tiny bit of time off after it's late 1990s/early 2000s high, the natural disaster film might be in for a comeback.

When San Andreas opens May 29, featuring a helicopter flying Dwayne Johnson carrying almost everyone in Los Angeles, the film will harken back to the glory days of summer blockbusters centered around the natural destruction of earth.

Remember when Sean Connery turned down Lord of the Rings to be the lead in a horrible adaptaion of Alan Moore's graphic novel The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen? The movie flopped so hard, Connery chose to retire from acting altogether, and now fox wants to give it another go.

League follows a group of characters famous from 19th Century British sci-fi/fantasy novels as they team up to take on the most villainous threats. Alan Quartermain, The Invisible Man, Captain Nemo, Doctor Jekyll/Mr. Hyde, and a full vampire version of Mina Harker round out the cast.

Fox tried to produce a TV series in 2013, but it never went beyond the pilot. While it feels like they're just hoping to hold onto the movie rights a little bit longer, let's hope Fox can make something decent from the property this time around.
