Something Cool: Rorschach Mask – A How To. It Even Moves!?!? This Will Blow Your Mind

Now I’m a huge fan of the Watchmen comics, and the movie adaption was pretty damn awesome if you ask me. Zack Snyder literally blew my mind, he did what he did with Frank Miller’s 300 — he turned something already pretty bad-ass into a bad mutha-f*$%er. And if you payed close enough attention you will have written down another thing on your list of nerd-must-haves: Rorschach’s shifting mask.

Now you can cross that bad boy of your list next to Holograms, ‘cus some inspired little genius by the name of youtube user guinness0507, who happens to own a paint company called Paint With Pearl, figured out how to put together his own moving Rorschach mask! And viola, success! Check out the awesome vid below! It’s not quite as good as the CG mask used by Jackie Earl Haley but still its better than the lame painted on ones fanboys wear at halloween.


Trailer Trove: ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ Trailer Arrives On The Shore! It’s A Bit Late, But What The Heck

Well in the rush of news the last month I fear that I overlooked a rather big something, the first trailer to Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. So put away your light-cycles and identity discs and get ready for some old fashioned ass-whopen! The first official trailer for Pirates 4 has been released, and in all truthfulness Its really a teaser — apart from the fact that it’s jammed with a shit load of extras. And it’s done it’s job ‘cus I can’t wait the six months until the release the thing!

For the more diehard fans of the films there is a little something for everyone, theres the crackly voice of Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush), drunken banter of Johnny Depp‘s Captain Jack Sparrow, as well as a few extras — zombies, mermaids, pirate-mexican chick (Penélope Cruz) and of course Jack’s new wild-card nemesis, Blackbeard (Ian McShane)! But what I enjoy the most out of this is the fact that as it seems the whole trailer, if not the whole movie, is centered around Jack — now thats something interesting.

Really Sparrows character has basically been at the heart of the films, and now with Keira Knightly and Orlando Bloom eliminated from the equation — we have a free roaming, no bars Jack! Hoorah! Check it out! And I’m very sorry for the late arrival, won’t happen again *cough* *cough*. Enjoy!

Disney’s ‘Tron: Legacy’ Reaches $175 Million Across The Grid (Worldwide), So People Love It As Much As I Did? Impossible…

So far Disney’s sequel after 28 years has so far raked in $175 million dollars worldwide, and by American figures is $100 million domestically and $75 million overseas (which is us). Not as greater mass as it should have got, but I think that over the next few weeks Legacy should pick up a bit. I mean the original was a flop by all accounts, but look at it now — a cult classic.

If you haven’t seen Tron: Legacy yet then shame on you! You can’t call yourself a movie fan unless you’ve seen it, and if you haven’t then get your lazy ass into that theatre because by my account it was one of the best films of last year (and technically this year).

Sucker Punch Images Escaped From A Mental Institution, And Found Their Way Online

Not a lot has been seen of Zack Snyder‘s visual tour-de force that has been teased and built up through some very vague trailers and pics previously released, which is starting to play with your mind no doubt — maybe were the ones that should be in the looney bin! Well have no fair, as we have heres our latest quick fix of ass-kicking super-babes from Movie Webs feature the lovely ladies of Snyder’s Sucker Punch.

What I love about Snyder is that he’s a director that has no definitive style (apart from slomo action) yet his works stand out as very visually pleasing and the esthetic is more than pleasing. He stands out as one of my favorite directors (among the names of Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan etc.) because of his visual style and amazing ability to tell a clear story amongst all the mayhem of flying ninja’s, gun shots, sword fights and toga wearing badasses slaying like legends.

The man just knows how to handle a screen, and these images don’t surprise me at all — they’re only a small taste of what’s to come and yet Im even more excited by them. Thanks to Movie Webs we have several images below for you to check out.

And for those a little less savvy with the story line Punch is a original story from director Snyder, about a young girl who is institutionalized by her wicked stepfather. Retreating to an alternative reality as a coping strategy, she envisions a plan which will help her escape from the facility. And basically thats all we know as far, except from what the trailers have told us to expect — warping battles with robot samurai’s, dragons, Nazi’s, Airplane battles and of course girls kicking-ass in sexy outfits…what more do you need??

So check out the picks below, and enjoy!

Four New International Character Posters For The Green Hornet!

Here we have four new International character posters from Michel Gondry‘s Green Hornet, which hits worldwide somewhere around January 20th (for release dates click here). Korean, the posters show all four main characters — in a slightly catalogue kind of way, especially Cameron Diaz‘s character. She just seems to be a bit of a deterrent these days ‘ol Diaz, heres hoping Green Hornet changes that…

As for everyone else, Christoph Waltz looks pretty fantastic (as usual) I mean all I see is Hans Landa from QT’s Inglorious Basterds — but hey it’s a damn good movie. For those a little less Green Hornet savy check out a plot summary we whipped u;

Britt Reid (Seth Rogan), is the the heir to a media empire, hell bent on partying – basically living up the playboy life style. But after his father dies in a horrible crash he decides to team up with one of his fathers loyal employee Kato (Jay Cho), who just happens to be a martial arts expert. Kato builds The Black Beauty, the ultimate weapon — an indestructible car for Britt. Britt realizes that he has to find some direction and do some good, so to save the day our heros must pose as villains to get closer to the bad guys. With the help of Britt’s new secretary, Lenore Case (Cameron Diaz), they learn that the chief criminal in the city is named Benjamin Chudnofsky (Christoph Waltz). Chudnofsky decides that the Green Hornet is a direct threat to his operation and seeks to take them down with his fellow gang lords.

So heres the posters below, enjoy!

David Fincher Scopes His Next Project After Dragon Tattoo, Which Is 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea 3D! The Next Casualty In The 3D Crossfire?

According to Collider, hot of his tail Social Network director David Fincher will be taking on a larger than life project, bringing Captain Nemo and The Nautilus to the big screen and in 3D! Firstly I wasn’t even aware of a 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea remake (remake, rei-magening – who can keep track when a film has more than 10 adaptions), secondly I think 3D was the right choice — it almost seems irrational to think otherwise. 20,000 Leagues IS a 3D movie full stop.

The only thing I worry about is will 20,000 Leagues get caught in the 3D crossfires? Who knows, but I’ll you who does — Fincher, and It’s clear he’s chosen his side. “I think it’s cool…when it’s done right,” said Fincher to Collider. He adds when asked about whether it would be his next project after Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, that “I think that there’s a lot of movies that could be my next film.”
So clearly Fincher has a lot on his pallet, and 20,000 Leagues is quite possibly on a long list of films for the hot-shot director. As Fincher has the two sequels to Dragon Tattoo (which are yet to be written) to cater for, based upon the first’s success. Plus Projects like Rendezvous with Rama, The Killer, Heavy Metal, and The Reincarnation of Peter Proud meaning 20,000 Leagues maybe a long way of!
But back onto the subject of 3D some see the technology as a story telling vessel, adding to the feel and scope of their films. Where as the anti demographic put forward digital 3D as a gimmick, cheap, a fad and a general distraction — and in some occasions I would have to agree. But on the other hand I would say It’s an awesome experience….fiddly and temperamental maybe! but a hell of a way to watch movies.

Hologram Coming To The Big Screen, Apple Has Patented 3D-less 3D. Development Under Way!!

42 years ago Stanley Kubrick’s 2001 Space Odyssey painted a picture of how the future would occur, and 9 years ahead of what the film portrayed as the pinnacle of technological discovery are we starting to perfect the art of 3D technology — and Apple’s Steve Job’s is looking into developing the idea further, with the goal of 3D without 3D glasses….. yes were referring to holograms!

Unfortunately for all the Star Wars Über fans out there Lightsabers and laser-guns are a little while off, but according to The Telegraph you can look forward to the development of holographic TV, cinema, and computer screen technology sometime in the near future! And yes there were some half-assed prototypes produced a couple years back, but to tell you the truth it’s It’s just not the same thing.

The company behind the Ipod and Iphone, and it’s latest touch-screen marvel the Ipad – Apple – have recently acquired a patent for 3D screens that don’t require the conventional glasses and even 3D projections a.k.a holographic imagery. The idea itself has been around for zonks, and basically how it works is you go to Wikipedia here and search it up — ‘cus If you don’t understand something you shouldn’t try to explain it!

Kidding! Basically, how I understand it works is tiny lasers on a special screen project light to your left and right eyes — giving the illusion to your brain of it being right in front of you. Also in development in conjunction with the screen is a tech to track your position to give the best possible image from all angles — sounds all very big Brother-ish don’t ya think? Don’t expect it straight away, but all I know is that its in development and more news should pop-up sooner or later. So stay tuned for more from Apple and our propulsion into the future, live long and prosper!
