Dwayne Johnson Officiates A Super-Fan's Wedding
Ever since (what is considered) the "worst interview of all time" at the Pain & Gain junket, Dwayne Johnson has developed a friendship with comedian and ScreenJunkies correspondent Nick Mundy. While promoting San Andreas, Dwayne Johnson took part in an epic prank where he surprised Nick Mundy by officiating his wedding. Dwayne Johnson actually became ordained by the state of California to perform the ceremony, which could go down as one of the craziest matrimonial pranks in history.
Mad Max: Fury Road-Inspired LEGO Vehicles
Flickr user LegoWill has debuted photos from his incredible collection of LEGO vehicles he built himself, that were inspired by Mad Max: Fury Road. Hilariously, Will used the Ecto-1 set from Ghostbusters to create Immortan Joe's modified version of a 1959 Cadillac known as the Gigahorse, along with the Doof Wagon, a.k.a. the monstrous speaker truck with Coma the Doof Warrior playing his flamethrowing guitar, and the War Rig driven by Imperator Furiosa.
Marvel's Daredevil Title Sequence In Law & Order Style
One of the most iconic opening sequences in TV history is NBC's long-running drama Law & Order, which has been mocked and spoofed countless times throughout the show's 20-year run and beyond. YouTube user David Johns has taken the Law & Order opening format and applied it to Marvel's Daredevil, splitting up the good and evil factions of the show into "Dare" and "Devil."
Avengers: Age of Ultron: Redneck Avengers
The folks at Bad Lip Reading have compiled a number of scenes from the blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron and other Marvel movies, dubbing over the dialogue to give Earth's Mightiest Heroes a redneck twang in a four-minute video they're calling Redneck Avengers: Tulsa Nights. As you can see, the ludicrous dialogue actually matches up quite well to not only the scene itself, but the lip movements of the actors.
Halo vs. Call of Duty Epic Fan Film
WackaWacka's Danny & Michael Philippou have created an epic and rather insane four-minute fan film entitled Halo vs. Call of Duty, where a number of Call of Duty fans find themselves battling Halo's Master Chief himself, after calling out the rival game. This could be the closest thing fans get to either a Halo or Call of Duty film for quite some time, and it surely doesn't disappoint.
Jeopardy! Champion Gives Hilariously Wrong Answer
Whenever most Jeopardy! contestants don't know the Final Jeopardy answer, they normally either answer with a question mark or just leave the screen blank. Current champion Choyon Manjrekar decided to have some fun with his response to, "A Christian hymn and Jewish holiday hymn are both titled this, also the name of a 2009 Tony-nominated musical." His response? "What is Kinky Boots?" As it turns out, none of his fellow competitors gave the correct response, Rock of Ages, and he ended up winning anyway.
Make Your Own Jason Statham 3D Printed Mask From Spy
20th Century Fox has launched an intriguing promotion for their upcoming action-comedy Spy, giving fans the opportunity to create their own 3D-printed mask of Jason Statham's face. Of course, the catch is you need to have access to a 3D printer to do so, but you can download the 3D file at FaceOffMachine.com.
Top 10 Movie Sets of All Time
Cinefix has broken down the Top 10 Movie Sets of All Time in an extensive 10 minute video. Mad Max: Fury Road has drawn much praise for its extensive use of practical sets, so it's quite fitting that this list would come out when it did. Among the site's picks for the best movie sets are The Atoll in Waterworld, Gotham City in Batman and The Roman Forum in Cleopatra, and those are just the bottom three.
Robert De Niro Delivers Incredible NYU Commencement Speech
Acting legend Robert De Niro brought some real talk to his commencement speech this weekend for graduates of New York University's famed Tisch School of the Arts, telling them bluntly, "You made it, and you're f---ed." He goes on to break down how graduates of every other NYU program will have jobs, but telling these art graduates that "passion should trump common sense," and that being "f---ed" is not a bad place to start. You likely won't hear a more memorable commencement speech all year.
Epic Rap Battle Between Lewis & Clark and Bill & Ted
Youtube channel ERB continues their long-running Epic Rap Battles in History series with a new video that pits famed historical explorers Lewis & Clark against famed cinematic time-travelling explorers Bill S. Preston Esquire and Ted Theodore Logan from Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. The result is a hilarious mix of historical and movie references, and we also have a video that goes behind-the-scenes of this rap battle.
