Terminator Genisys Drunk Robots Trailer
On last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a "never before seen" trailer debuted for Terminator Genisys, which adds a new wrinkle to the franchise: What if these Terminators were drunk? Jimmy Kimmel explains that these machines are "more human than ever before," cutting together actual footage from the movie, with scenes of real robots tumbling and falling over in a drunk stupor. Sadly, you'll see no drunk robots when Terminator Genisys hits theaters this Friday...But I'm not sure if that's a good or a bad thing.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day Trailer Lip Dubbed by Kids
Speaking of the Terminator franchise, The Water Cooler has put together a humorous version of the trailer for 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day, only this time, the dialogue and sound effects are dubbed by children. If you recognize these young voices, all of the dubs are performed by Mashable's "little kid residents" and Vine stars Arwen (age 10), Leia (age 8) and Neo (age 5).
Game of Thrones Finale: The Extended Cut - SPOILERS
SPOILER!College Humor has put together a hilarious "extended cut" of the Game of Thrones finale Mother's Mercy, where Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is brutally killed by his fellow brothers in the Night's Watch. In this version, several Night's Watch members have trouble saying their one line, "For the watch," as some try to go in a different direction as poor Jon bleeds to death in front of them.
Lesser-Known Facts About Superman Infographic
The fine folks at Buy Metal Online has combed through Superman lore to bring us a ton of little-known facts about the Man of Steel. For instance, did you know that Superman is immune to vampires? Or that there was a version of the character who was raised in the Soviet Union instead of the U.S.? Perhaps the most interesting factoid in the group is that the U.S. government tried to cover up a 1945 comic issue that dealt with scientists splitting the atom to create an atomic bomb. If you're of the rare persuasion that wants to see Superman square off with vampires, it would be a short-lived battle, since he is apparently immune to these bloodsuckers.
Inside Out Pixar Easter Eggs Breakdown - SPOILERS
AtZ has put together a compilation of the Pixar Easter Eggs found in the studio's new hit Inside Out, although, be warned, there will be some SPOILERS if you haven't seen this quite yet. Among the Easter Eggs are references to Up, Toy Story 3, the short film For the Birds, A Bug's Life Pixar's Luxo ball and much more.
Chris Pratt Impersonates Jason Statham in Cut Saturday Night Live Sketch
Since Saturday Night Live is on its summer hiatus, the NBC series has debuted a sketch that was cut for time from the Season 40 premiere hosted by Chris Pratt, where the actor impersonates Jason Statham in a fake ad for a product entitled Jason Statham's Jason Steakums. Not only is it hilarious, but it shows that Chris Pratt can efficiently deliver tongue-twisting dialogue without missing a beat. Seriously, try to say Jason Statham's Jason Steakums five times fast.
Dwayne Johnson Receives a Fan Letter from Steven Spielberg
While doing press for San Andreas, Dwayne Johnson revealed that he received an unexpected fan letter from one of his heroes, director Steven Spielberg. You can see the photo of his reaction to reading the letter in his Instagram photo above, but he gave an excerpt of what the filmmaker said to him in an excerpt from his Esquire interview.
"About three weeks ago, I'm here at the house and I get a letter- 'Been enjoying your movies over the years. Very entertaining. I feel like I've really gotten to know you over the years, most recently after watching you host Saturday Night Live. Great job. You continue to go for it. Proud of your work and look forward to meeting you. Steven Spielberg.'"
The actor's reaction to the letter, still incredibly excited to hear praise from the beloved director after all he's accomplished, is quite wonderful, and it's great knowing that someone as busy as Steven Spielberg still takes the time to reach out to those he admires. There are still some good guys left in Hollywood.
Amy Schumer Uses Time Travel In Inside Amy Schumer
Amy Schumer takes full advantage of time travel to warn her future self about a seedy bathroom encounter, and ponders what would happen if President Amy Schumer would have copied her hairstyle, would Ebola still decimate France and much more.
