Things You May Have Missed In the New Deadpool Trailer
Earlier this week, the official red band trailer was released from the highly-anticipated Deadpool, just a few weeks after fans at Comic-Con got to see it. If you're looking for more insight into this fantastic footage, Mr. Sunday Movies has a detailed breakdown, offering a few things you may have missed in the trailer, and adding some insight into these characters from the comic books, and how they're portrayed in the movie.
Hugh Jackman Photobombed an Australian Reporter on Live TV
Earlier this week, Hugh Jackman paid a visit to the Sydney Children's Hospital in Randwick, Australia. Upon leaving, he came across TV reporter Sandra Sully, who was doing a live report, which he decided to photo bomb briefly. The actor appeared at the hospital to launch a Fight Cancer Foundation program called "Back on Track," which aims to help sick children keep up with their education and stay connected to their teachers and peers. Hopefully Hugh Jackman will start a trend of celebrities photobombing live newscasts, but we'll have to wait and see.
Back to The Future Gets Its Own Monopoly Game
Back to the Future celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year, with a new Blu-ray trilogy set being released along with all three movies returning to theaters this October. Now fans have a much different way to celebrate this anniversary with a Back to The Future version of the classic board game Monopoly. The game board features classic locations from Hill Valley like Café '80s and Doc's Mansion, and the game pieces fans can use are the Delorean time machine, Einstein the dog, the cowboy hat, the futuristic sneaker, the hoverboard and the famous Hill Valley clock. The game will be priced at $39.99, available for purchase on September 30.
Everything Wrong With The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1
Cinema Sins is back to poke some fun at the penultimate Twilight movie The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1. As one might imagine, the "sin" tally is quite high, which probably won't surprise anyone who isn't a die-hard Twi-hard. We can only hope for at least a few more years of cinematic peace before this franchise is rebooted, sequelized or even prequelized.
Mission: Impossible Parody Mission: Implausible
Sneaky Zebra has put together a wonderful parody short that pokes fun at the massive Mission: Impossible franchise. This video shows us IMF's "B team," those who take on missions while Ethan Hunt is on assignment. As you can see, this isn't exactly a well-oiled machine, and it isn't even that important of a mission to begin with.
The Most Cringe-Worthy Scenes From Comic Book Movies
io9 has put together 16 of the worst scenes in comic book movie history, which are quite hilarious. Included in this compilation is the absolutely wretched jazz dance in Spider-Man 3, a bizarrely sexual basketball game in Catwoman and the Spidey/Electro fight in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, set to Itsy Bitsy Spider.
A Breakdown of Movie Villains Throughout the Years
CLS Videos has put together an artful six-minute video that is described as a "tribute to the evil of cinema." Some of the most iconic villains in cinematic history are present, including Scarface, Hannibal Lecter, Keyser Soze and many, many more. You can also check out VillainTribute.Tumblr.com for a full list of every villain seen in this video.
James Corden (Tries To) Play Celebrity Noses
On last night's The Late Late Show with James Corden, the late night talk show host tried to introduce a new game called Celebrity Noses, that went hilariously off the rails. If you're really hoping to see celebrity noses, sorry but you're out of luck. If you want to see every way in which a sketch can go wrong in under four minutes, then this is the video for you.
