Fight Club For Kids By Chuck Palahniuk
Author Chuck Palahniuk has taken his beloved literary and cinematic classic Fight Club and turned it into a kids book... Although it's still not kid-friendly. The author hilariously tries to keep it clean, turning Fight Club into the "Horsing Around Club," but, eventually, he goes off on a very violent tangent.
Ohio Movie Theater Plays Insidious Chapter 3 instead of Inside Out
Patrons of the Danbarry Cinema in Middletown, Ohio who went to see Inside Out last week were in for quite a shock, when, instead, a print of Insidious Chapter 3 was shown. Jazmyn Moore says she took her 5 children to see the animated comedy, but instead saw images of children being tied up and murdered, which Jazmyn Moore says "terrified" her children. The theater's management apologized, offered refunds and free passes to see Inside Out with a free 3D upgrade. Another patron, Mandy Adkins, says that Insidious Chapter 3 never actually played, but Jazmyn Moore may have been referring to the Sinister 2 trailer, which does hint at the deaths of children.
Mark Wahlberg plays Head Shots with Jimmy Fallon
While promoting Ted 2, Mark Wahlberg appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, where he ended up playing a rousing game of Head Shots. It turns out Mark Wahlberg is quite a good shot with these toy bow and arrow things, while Jimmy Fallon...Should stick to his day job. We also have another clip from the show where Mark Wahlberg explains how Tom Brady's cameo in the comedy came to be.
Hilarious and Bizarre Martial Arts Stop-Motion Short Film
In what had to have been a meticulous process, Sam and Niko at Corridor Digial put together an off-the-wall stop-motion short film, featuring two men putting their kung fu skills to the test in front of a woman. We also have a behind-the-scenes video that shows how they put this film together.
Seinfeld Fan Breaks Jerry's Door on a Replica Set
You likely know that every episode of the classic sitcom Seinfeld is now available on Hulu, and to celebrate this momentous occasion, Hulu re-created Jerry Seinfeld's famed apartment for an exhibit in New York City's Meatpacking District. Just hours after the exhibit opened, 27-year-old Tim McGeever managed to break the door, while trying to replicate Kramer's (Michael Richards) trademark entrance.
Making of Batman Begins
This month marks the 10th Anniversary of Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins, and if you celebrate milestones like that, I can't think of a better way than by watching this feature-length documentary about the making of this Batman origin story. It's incredibly in-depth and well worth the watch if you have an hour and 44 minutes to kill.
T.J. Miller Disrupts a Detroit TV Station
Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller paid a visit to Detroit local news station Fox 2 to promote his stand up show at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, where he simply caused hilarious chaos. Thankfully everyone took his antics in stride, which makes these videos even more humorous than they'd already be.
