Dolphin Tale tells the true story of Winter the dolphin, a bottlenose who loses her tail when it becomes ensnared in a crab trap. A young boy befriends her at the marine hospital where she is recuperating, and convinces the staff there to build a prosthetic tail for her. His efforts pay off and Winter becomes the world’s first bionic dolphin. Someday, she will rule over us all as we pay tribute to our Delphinidae Overlords.

But you didn’t come here to listen to me jaw on about our future enslavement. You came here to learn about film’s most awesome prosthetics. Here are eleven of our favorites.

Ash Williams – Chainsaw Hand

When his hand becomes demonically possessed, Ash has no choice but to have to chop it off. I hate when that happens. But the good news is that he trades up. By rigging a chainsaw over the stump where his hand was a few short hours earlier, Ash is able to level the playing field by using his awesome new chainsaw hand to rip those deadites a new one.

Darth Vader – Pretty Much Everything

If you find yourself having a lightsaber battle on the edge of an active volcano with lava bubbling at your heels, it’s a good idea to win. Because if you lose (and survive), you’ll find most of your body replaced with cybernetic parts and organs. The plus side is that you’ll gain some pretty intimidating height and you’ll end up with a more authoritative voice in case you’re considering a career in voice-over.

The new one-sheet for Hobo With a Shotgun, the newest movie to be spawned from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s weirdly influential box-office flop Grindhouse, is pretty much what you’d expect. There’s a strangely zombian hobo in the likeness of the thespian set to give him life, Rutger Hauer, a shotgun being fired, anguished faces, a bunch of flowing ooze, and are those robots? Yeah, a couple of  robots. Anyway, if this looks like the kind of thing you’d be interested in, the movie is set to be released sometime in 2011. Until then, you can check out the official Hobo With a Shotgun website or start looking for hobos around your town who look like they might have shotguns. Here’s a larger copy of the image, in case you missed some of the finer details (Dread Central):

Machete is opening in theaters this weekend, but another Grindhouse-inspired film, Hobo with a Shotgun, is making a splash with the release of its first full-length trailer.

Like Machete, Hobo with a Shotgun started out as nothing more than a spoof-trailer. But unlike Machete and a few other memorable trailers, Hobo with a Shotgun wasn’t made by a well-known director with studio backing. It was created on a shoestring budget by a guy working in a comic-book shop. And to everyone’s surprise, it kicked just as much ass, if not more so, than its big-budget counterparts.

The fact that we’re witnessing a trailer for a movie that started out as a trailer has everyone talking about the concept of meta-film. Personally, I think Hobo with a Shotgun should be referred to as an omega-film, since from the looks of it, it’s the be-all and end-all of modern cinema. But I don’t want to over sell it. (/Film)

Watch a NSFW hobo use a shotgun after the jump…

Eli Roth Confirms Plans for ‘Thanksgiving’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/eli-roth-confirms-plans-for-thanksgiving/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/eli-roth-confirms-plans-for-thanksgiving/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Grindhouse has already been responsible for two spin-off films: Machete and Hobo with a Shotgun. Now Eli Roth has confirmed that he will bring that total to three with a full-length adaptation of his Grindhouse trailer, Thanksgiving. I’ve been working on the script with my co-writer, Jeff Rendell, who plays the pilgrim in the trailer. And it’s me imitating Jeff’s voice [for the narration]. But Jeff has been working. I said that his deal is he has to work on the script while I’m promoting The Last Exorcism, and as soon as I’m done in mid-September he’s going to fly to California, we’re going to sit down, and bang out the script. I guess it shouldn't be surprising that most of these trailers are being turned into features. Hollywood is already scraping the bottom of the barrel with adaptations of friggen boardgames. Thanksgiving looks like Citizen Kane in comparison. (Cinema Blend)

Rutger Hauer Doles Out Transient Justice in ‘Hobo With a Shotgun’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rutger-hauer-doles-out-transient-justice-in-hobo-with-a-shotgun/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/rutger-hauer-doles-out-transient-justice-in-hobo-with-a-shotgun/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 I was surprised when Robert Rodriguez's Grindhouse trailer Machete was given the big screen treatment, because Rodriguez is known to just say things. So color me super-secret-double-omega-very surprised at the news Rutger Hauer is to star in a feature length version of Hobo With a Shotgun. In 2007, SXSW held a contest which invited filmmakers to make cheap crap to go along with Grindhouse. Hobo With a Shotgun was by far the best of the bunch and Jason Eisener's fake trailer was attached to Canadian prints of the film. Filming on the feature version begins tomorrow with Rutger starring as the titular hobo. That's great casting as Hauer is no stranger to doling out justice or looking kinda like a hobo. Though Busey. Busey would have been a casting coup. (AICN) Check out the original Hobo trailer after the jump...
