The post 7 Best Homemade Gadgets In Action Movies appeared first on Screen Junkies.

At the end of a long month, there’s very little better than kicking back and indulging in a long article about movie gadgets. Good news! It’s happening RIGHT NOW. We’ve scoured some of the most iconic action films (and one drama with a crazy-ass gadget…see if you can spot it) and from them harvested some of the most bad-ass weaponized contraptions of all time. Sure, the gadgets listed aren’t always designed for destruction, but we feel that it’s always a device’s highest and best use. Enjoy.

Peter Parker’s Web Slingers – The Amazing Spider-Man

In the latest edition of Spider-Man, coming out on Blu-ray™ and DVD November 9, Parker takes the easy way out and builds mechanical web slingers, rather than develop them genetically, like a TRUE superhero. Just kidding. I actually find the mechanical web slingers much more impressive than the evolved ones, if only because this Peter Parker had to work to develop them, rather than just let it happen to him like another Spider-Man portrayer. Let’s just call him “Toby M.” for the sake of anonymity.

Batterang – The Batman Movies and TV Show

What’s remarkable about this homemade gadget is that it simply defies explanation. It explodes, it sometimes returns, sometimes it’s remote controlled, and it can travel incredible distances at ridiculous speeds. Why? Because Batman. That’s why.

The Tim Burton and Chris Nolan installments have done their best to distance themselves from the campy TV show, but no one can resist the subdued charm of the batterang. Not sure if I should capitalize “batterang…”

Ash’s Chainsaw Hand – Evil Dead 2

While it might not be the most ingenious weapon, it is the most hard-core and bad ass. In the series, Ash (played by Bruce Campbell) undergoes a series of unfortunate catastrophes that cause his hand to be possessed, then cause him to cut it off, replacing it with a chainsaw. It’s not exactly rocket science, but, coming from a guy that calls a shotgun his “boom stick,” it’s to be expected.

The Bolt Shooter – The Good Son

Sometimes bad people make great weapons, and nowhere is that more apparent than in The Good Son, a film that stars Macauley Culkin as the bad guy (boy). And oh, is he ever bad. He does lots of terrible things, like causing wrecks on the freeways by throwing dummies off of bridges, but the most heartless thing he can muster up is taking out a ferocious dog with a weird bolt-gun-crossbow hybrid. He’s a horrible, horrible boy, but his fabrication abilities are off the charts.

Charlie Kelly’s Rat-Bashing Stick – It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

(I am aware this isn’t his actual rat stick, but I figured an action sequence was more profound than gadget accuracy.)
When you kill as many rats as Charlie does, you get that thousand-yard stare in your eyes that comes hand-in-hand with the crushing pain of recognizing your own mortality. Fortunately for Charlie, killing rat families just got a whole lot easier with his rat-bashing stick, a modified baseball bat that features a whole slew of pointy nails and a chain or something. It’s probably the crudest device on this list, but when you see how it warms Charlie’s heart, it might also be the most endearing!

Data’s Telescoping Boxing Glove – The Goonies

I’ll be honest. This is the first device that came to mind, but I’m having a really hard time coming to terms with the efficacy of it. First of all, if you’re going to punch someone to cause them harm, using a padded glove to do it sort of defeats the purpose and mitigates the damage done. Sort of cartoon-y for a film that otherwise offers a sincere and real look at a, um, group of kids that are hunting for treasure and who accidentally stumble upon a pirate armada.

Ok. So the boxing glove is probably in keeping with the premise of the movie.

The Proton Pack – Ghostbusters

Please don’t tell me how a Proton Pack works. Not interested. All I know is that they suck ghosts into a backpack, where they are held until it’s time to more or less incinerate them in a big ghost oven. Or something like that. You know how I know these Proton Packs are homemade? Well, for one, they look like crap. And two, they’re not foolproof. In fact, they’re downright dangerous.

Never ever cross the streams of two Proton Packs. You won’t like the result.

You know what was missing from Raimi’s Spider-Man movies? Sick ollies. That injustice has been corrected.

The new Australian trailer for The Amazing Spider-Man gives us a glimpse of more the action that The Land Down Under demands. We’ve got Emma Stone thrown out a window, Spidey and the Lizard tickle-fighting as they fall to their deaths, football skills, and Curt Connors possibly masturbating at his desk. I’d expect that of Dylan Baker, but not you Rhys Ifans.

Not to be outdone in the week that brings us a final Dark Knight Rises trailer and the release of The Avengers, Sony is back with another trailer for this summer’s The Amazing Spider-Man. Here we’re pulled into Peter Parker’s world as he web-slings high about the streets of…. Neo-Tokyo? I guess that’s the super-slick Hollywood version of New York City. Filmed on location in the Neon Skyscraper District.

In addition to the action, we’re also given a glimpse of the mystery. Who is that raspy-voiced, shadowy figure demanding to know if Dr. Curt Connors told Peter the truth about his father. Is it Norman Osborne? Peter’s dad?? Denis Leary after a heavy smoking day??? All will be revealed when The Amazing Spider-Man opens in theaters on June 30th.

We now have some conceptual art for The Amazing Spider-Man’s The Lizard, instead of relying on that silly Pez dispenser. Strangely, the concept art looks JUST like that Pez dispenser, actually. Rhys Ifans should be able to unhinge his jaw accordingly, lest I become disillusioned with the movie industry.

Here’s a pic of the Pez dispenser:

Handsome, no?

And here’s the concept art for The Lizard:

Before you curse or praise this image, bear in mind that The Lizard undergoes several metamorphoses during the film, so if this image isn’t your cup of tea, don’t worry, there will be several more iterations of The Lizard for you. You’ll find out for yourself on July 2, 2012, but I doubt you’ll have to wait that long before trailers, posters, psychic images, and general speculation runs rampant.

Until then, that’s a hell of a lizard.

Sony will kick off summer 2014 by releasing The Amazing Spider-man 2 on May 2, 2014. So here’s hoping you like 3D first-person swinging action of The Amazing Spider-man. A Sony exec told Deadline, ”I think it speaks volumes about our confidence in what we are seeing on the new film and our desire to move quickly on the next installment.” Oh and also, it’ll rake in shitbuckets full of money.

Reboot, reboot, reboot. The Amazing Spider-Man was the one that really drove this trend home, because it’s only been 10 years since the original, and it was a beloved billion dollar success. Now that the stars and filmmakers from Amazing are at Comic-Con a year before the film’s release, they shared a few details about their version to justify starting over with Peter Parker in high school in a press conference before meeting the fans.

1. This Peter Parker is still skinny.

Remember how buff Tobey Maguire was? Not Andrew Garfield. “I only got into the Ultimate [series comics] doing research for the film but that was a great resource for how I wanted Spidey’s body to work,” Garfield said. “I liked the outline and how skinny he was because I’m skinny. I love the idea of a skinny teenage kid beating the crap out of huge guys. That’s always been a huge dream of mine, and [to] give other skinny kids that sense of achievement as well.”

2. It’s Gwen Stacey as first love, not homewrecker.

Yeah, we know you didn’t like Spider-Man 3. Tempting Peter away from Mary Jane wasn’t exactly endearing to Bryce Dallas Howard’s Gwen. Emma Stone’s gets to be sweet. “My character, experience is everything with Peter,” Stone said. “It’s her first love. They experience so much together and he teaches her so much. With him it made sense once I read with him and met him.”

3. Web sling from Spider-man’s point of view

The big visual effects hurdle for Sam Raimi was to make Spider-Man sling around New York. Now that artists can achieve that, director Marc Webb wants to make the audience see it firsthand. You’ve seen a taste of that in the teaser trailer, and Webb also built a track in New York to coordinate driving traffic around a stuntman swinging down the street. “Because we’re shooting in 3D, I wanted to conceive of certain things very specifically for 3D,” Webb said. “There’s an experiential component to 3D I think is fantastic. We’re experimenting with generating that point of view so you feel what Peter Parker feels when he’s jumping over buildings and streets.

4. Now with more daddy issues.

Uncle Ben’s mantra was “with great power comes great responsibility.” With a new beginning, Amazing is really emphasizing the father figures, good, bad and absent. “We had a better origin in some ways because we’re dealing with something people care about, no knowing who their parents are,” producer Avi Arad said. “Then we have probably the greatest love story in Marvel, Gwen Stacey, the relationship between Gwen and her father. We have an amazing villain. The only thing that stayed the same and made us go and make the movie in the spirit of Peter Parker, what he’s about but how would he behave in this day and age? How would a kid like him in high school react to things?”

6 photosEmma Stone

Sony’s teaser for The Amazing Spider-Man has leaked in advance of Comic-Con. Much like comic book and movie lovers probably did upon viewing the trailer.

Overall, it looks like a somewhat darker look at the webslinger. Here, Andrew Garfield‘s Peter is portrayed as more of a sensitive loner than Tobey Maguire‘s total nuuurd take on the character. It’s a little light on the action but we are privy to a bridge shot where something (most likely the Lizard) is throwing cars into the air with ease as well as a Spidey POV shot as he swings from Manhattan rooftops which looks like a really cool video game intro. Let’s hope those effects aren’t slated to appear in the final film.

30 photosThe Best Of The Spider-Man Meme

I’ve been curious to find out how different The Amazing Spider-Man will be from the previous films, and today I think I got my answer in the form of these new stills from the film. While yesterday’s glimpse at Sony‘s new take on the arachnid showed off the costume, the web shooters, and Emma Stone looking pretty hot, there was one aspect of the film that was avoided. Namely, Spider-Man being kind of a jerk.

In these pics we see him steal food from the elderly, dress like Hollow Man, and dunk on a special needs classmate. Unless Sony chose to adapt the Spider-Man Meme. In which case, I’m in total support. (EW)

Some new stills from The Amazing Spider-Man have rolled on in courtesy of EW, and while they don’t give a lot of context to the superhero this time around, they give us several close-up looks at his suit, which we had seen a few months back.

They do offer one small layout of “action shots,” that show Garfield‘s Peter Parker crouching on the ceiling of a subway car, getting a sponge bath, and rifling through Martin Sheen‘s briefcase. He’s really living the dream in these stills!

Beyond that, we get a look at Rhys Ifans looking like the scientist who is just waiting to turn evil, and we get a couple stills that have Emma Stone in the mix as well. While there’s not a lot here to differentiate these installment from the earlier ones, the pics do remind us that Spidey is coming, which is probably all we really need to know anyway. Click for more funny pics.

The series — and this panel! — also features Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhouse, Sam Trammell as Sam Merlotte, Rutina Wesley as Tara Thornton, Nelsan Ellis as Lafayette, Deborah Ann Woll as Jessica Hamby, Kristin Bauer van Straten as Pam, Joe Manganiello as Alcide, and Kevin Alejandro as Jesus.

Many major studios are opting not to attend the San Diego Comic-Con this July. The failure of heavily-hyped films like Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World and Suckerpunch had studios scratching their brain-shells and lead them to the belief that the advance screenings and panels don’t help their box office whatsoever. Plus, actors get creeped out by the fans.

Disney, Warner Bros., Dreamworks, The Weinstein Co., and maybe Marvel won’t be making the trip this year, which means you won’t see any precious footage from The Dark Knight Rises or The Man Of Steel or The Avengers which seems like BULLshit. But don’t worry. You’ll be able to see scenes from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part I and Shark Night 3D, so that should keep people from stabbing one another with pens, right?

Oh okay. Well, I guess you’ll also have a chance to see promotions for The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn, Cowboys & Aliens, The Amazing Spider-man, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, The Hobbit, and The Immortals. And if all those panels are full, you can check out The Raven or “Terra Nova.” So don’t worry, there will be plenty of stuff to act nerdy toward. (NY Times)

Though the film doesn’t come out until 11 months later, the cast and crew of The Amazing Spider-Man decided they might be able to spread awareness to as many as four extra people if they all made an appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con this summer.

While Comic-Con started as a niche convention for comic book enthusiasts, it’s exploded into a mecca for things both geek-y and blockbuster-y. The fact that the Spidey set is making the trip down there isn’t that surprising. Though it’s a ways out from the release of the film, next year’s Comic-Con comes a few weeks late, and it’s not like the crew could just SKIP Comic-Con. That would be comic-book movie marketing suicide. So this year it is.

The gang will sit on a panel and discuss production of the movie and the source material, while artfully dodging myriad questions about plot points. They will also be contractually bound by Marvel to start 25% of their sentences with “It was such a pleasure working with ____.” Ahh, Hollywood.

If you’re the actor portraying Uncle Ben in a Spider-Man movie, the good news is that you won’t have to work many days on set before collecting your pay check.

Martin Sheen is playing the perennially dying uncle in The Amazing Spider-Man. You can see him in the set photos above with Andrew Garfield (they’re shooting in Queens), and soon he will become Peter Parker’s personal guilt ghost. In his last breathes, Uncle Ben is probably reminding Peter that “with great power comes great responsibility,” and also stating, “I totally cheated on your Aunt May… hey… don’t judge me…”

How gritty? Sufficiently gritty.

Zodiac writer Jamie Vanderbilt is web-slinging his way back to crime dramas after penning The Amazing Spider-Man. He’s set to write Ridley Scott‘s Red Riding for Columbia, but don’t worry, it’s not another entry in the endless wave fairy tale adaptations. Based on a British mini-series, which was based on books by David Pearce, which were probably based on something else, Red Riding is about the murders of several kidnapped young girls in a British town from the mid-70s to the mid-80s. Oh, and the local police are also crooked. The whole thing sounds like a light-hearted good time.

Vanderbilt, whose last name makes him sound like the country club villain in an 80s comedy, recently did a polish draft on the Total Recall remake. (Hollywood Reporter)

This round up of set pics proudly features on-set looks at two blockbusters and one film that everyone involved promises will be better than the first one.

Let’s start with The Amazing Spider-Man. In the first photo, star Andrew Garfield is told to pose “as though he was appearing in a JC Penney back-to-school ad.” Needless to say, he nailed it. We’ve also got Martin Sheen at his Martin Sheeniest, Sally Field quite simply bringin’ it, and Rhys Ifans needing medical attention for a pretty wicked neck rash. If these photos don’t wanna make you see The Amazing Spider-Man…then…I dunno…maybe some later photos will or something.

6 photosThings Are Looking Quite Jiggy On The 'MIB III' Set

Then we’ve got the large scale arts and crafts project that also doubles as the Wrath of the Titans set. I have seen hundreds, if not thousands, of catapults in my day, and I would say this one falls squarely in the middle. Pretty unremarkable. Much like this film will be.

Finally, we’ve got MIB III set pics featuring Bill Hader as Andy Warhol for reason unknown. We’ve also got a bunch of shirtless men in shiny silver pants. After last weeks gallery (attached) I’m getting the impression that Will Smith’s “rewrite” may have turned the beloved alien franchise into a homoerotic all-male revue. Whatever. We’ll call it a lateral move.

“Let’s do everything on computers” has been the motto of action directors for the past too many years. You know, I pay good money to see dudes driving their cars into helicopters, and damn it, I wanna know they junked perfectly good, real life vehicles for my $38 IMAX 3D ticket. Looks like the Spider Senses of director Marc Webb and I are on the same page.

Above are new set photos from The Amazing Spider-Man. They show either Andrew Garfield or his spider-double swinging through the refreshing NYC air with the help of Hollywood wire magic. Unlike many of the past Spider-Man set photos, these actually look pretty cool. With elegant moves like these, who needs Black Swan or the frigid White Swan? By the way Black Swan could totally be a Spider-Man villain. Not a good one, but maybe one your little sister would have bought the action figure of.

The Amazing Spider-Man actually, not computerly, swings into theaters July 3, 2012. (Daily Mail)

Look past the incredibly girlie pink text and star graphics in the images below, if you can, for new photos from The Amazing Spider-Man set. Behind the scenes photos from the Spider-Man reboot have blanketed the entertainment blogosphere like so much webbing, but this is the first time we’re seeing what might be Rhys Ifans in Lizard make-up, hiding his scaly shame behind a mask. That makes me so angry. What’s that masked menace Ifans got to hide? Suddenly, I know J. Jonah Jameson’s pain.

Other photos include Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) taking a few casual laps in and around a police car, and about-to-skateboard Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) looking chillaxed. Totes chillaxed. To the miz-ax.

Due to the enormous success of the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man, screenwriter James Vanderbilt has been hired to write the sequel. Wait. That doesn’t make any sense. The studio is just assuming that an unreleased movie is going to make a ton of money and already moving on to a sequel? That’s quite cavalier of them.

To be fair though, he was also involved in the now-scrapped Spider-Man 4, so he’s got a pretty strong track record of penning Spider-Man movies that no one has seen. It’s not our place to question the studios.

Vanderbilt did write David Fincher‘s Zodiac, which means that he is absolutely qualified to write Spider-Man. Simple movie math says that (Fincher writer)>(Comic book movie writer), and you can’t argue with math. Well, you can, but you’ll fail. The Amazing Spider-Man shoots its gooey web all over audiences July 3, 2012. (THR)

UPDATE: It turns out that the character of Dr. Curt Connors (who turns into The Lizard in the comics) has been cast for a while now, by Rhys Ifans. While this led a lot of people to assume The Lizard would be the villain of The Amazing Spider-Man, true nerds like me remember that Connors appears in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man series as well, which doesn’t have any evil reptilian killers in it (unfortunately). So I guess it wasn’t such a big secret after all. The original article follows:

One of the biggest secrets of any upcoming movie is who the villain will be in Marc Webb‘s reboot of the Spider-Man franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man. And now, even though everyone knows that C. Thomas Howell is a big blabbermouth who can’t keep any kind of secret, someone told him who it was going to be. And, not to prolong the suspense or anything, but it’s going to be The Lizard. Here’s Howell during a radio interview:

“There is not a whole lot to talk about. Sony wants us to be hush-hush right now. I play a relatively small role. I play a construction worker who’s son is caught in the middle of a battle between the Lizard and Spider-Man on the Manhattan bridge. Spider-Man helps me get my son back from this perilous situation. There is some payback there at the end of the movie. Spider-Man is kind of hurting. I help him when all of the other people won’t. Part of the story is, the nation thinks he might be a bad guy. They don’t know what to think. Because of my experience on the bridge with my kid, I know he is a good guy. I pitch in and help out at the end. That is the best way.”

So, now you know. I guess we don’t know who’s playing The Lizard yet. I might humorously suggest a popular Hollywood actor who looks like a lizard, but I can’t think of any. Gary Sinise? Conrad Veidt? (via Latino Review)

The destined-to-be-remade-in-2021 The Amazing Spider-Man might be shaping up to be almost as good as Spider-Man, if you like state-of-the-art 3D filming technology and Martin Sheen – neither of which the Spider-Man our dead grandparents saw had. The “pioneering” technology is called “3ality Digital’s TS-5 wireless and handheld beamsplitter mirror rig,” and is said to allow filmmakers to shoot in 3D in the time it takes to shoot a 2D movie. Here’s some more technical jargon from the movie’s director of photography that will appear to fly off the screen if you’re wearing your special Screen Junkies 3D goggles:

“You don’t get the unwanted shadowing effects during shots that sometimes appear using other 3D rigs, and the lens changes only take a few minutes. We wanted a rig that would not only deliver the best quality and performance but also one that wouldn’t delay the production, so we have all the benefits of a 3D picture and we’re shooting to a 2D schedule.”

Cool! I’m sure this means that soon they’ll be able to afford to provide 3D glasses to ticket holders at no extra cost, right? Right? Hey, why are you laughing? (via The Hollywood Reporter)

Spider-Man, Spider-Man / Eatin’ stuff / On the set…

We’ve seen a lot of behind-the-scenes crotch-shots and video from The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield, which I think is kind of unfortunate. I consider these un-touched, low-impact photos to be excitement killers, like… well, like Spider-Man 3 in general. My Spidey-senses ain’t tingling over these shots.

Still, they do give us an intimate look in the making of a crazy high-budget blockbuster. We also now know Spider-Man wears sweatpants. Or maybe it’s laundry day. Or maybe the Green Goblin stole all his jeans. I can imagine Harry Osborn cackling on his sky stick, struggling to hold an entire drawer’s worth or Levi’s and khakis.

Sony has tightened up their summer 2012 tentpole release schedule (it’s never too early), and here’s what they’re working with:

(Please remember all release dates subject to change as movie execs get into pissing contests)

  • Men in Black 3 – 3D (May 25th) The third installment of the Tommy Lee Jones/Will Smith family-friendly sci-fi series, also starring Josh Brolin.
  • I Hate You, Dad (June 22nd) Adam Sandler is Andy Samburg’s dad in this comedy. Expect lots of silly voices, hilarious rage, and maybe some ironic rapping.
  • The Amazing Spider-Man – 3D (July 3rd) Andrew Garfield‘s fills the shoes Tobey Maguire vacated in what will certainly be Sony’s most touted summer release.
  • Here Comes the Boom (July 27th) Kevin James is a biology teacher that does karate or some crap.
  • Total Recall (August 3rd) Colin Farrell plays the protagonist (Quaid) in this remake that shifts a bit from the story of the original. This film isn’t listed as 3D, but don’t rule it out.

While not an inspired slate of offerings from Sony, summer usually exists as a breeding ground for the familiar, so in 13 months, get ready to turn off the thinking cap and get mesmerized by the explosions and the fat guy falling over. (Deadline)

Fans are salivating at the prospect of The Amazing Spider-Man, which promises the same cast of characters we know from the first 3 Spider-Man movies, but with all-new actors saying the words. But it’s not just fans who are excited about The Amazing Spider-Man – it’s the cast members as well. Just check out what Irrfan Khan has to say about his part:

“The role got me some good reviews there and I think the industry there is aware of my work. Marc Webber [sic] had seen me and wanted to work with me and he approached me for this role. I play one of the villains in the movie. It is a pivotal role.”

Oh, well. The actor playing the part says it’s a “pivotal role.” I wouldn’t be surprised if we found out he’s actually playing Spider-Man. (via ComingSoon.net)

It’s official: The Spider-Man reboot that has the world waiting with baited breath to see if it’s possible to make Spider-Man appealing to modern audiences has a title: The Amazing Spider-Man. It also has a release date: July 3, 2012 (provided the world hasn’t ended by then). For you non-virgins out there, The Amazing Spider-Man is the name Spider-Man’s first comic series, so this choice of title shows they aren’t planning on straying TOO far from the established Spider-Man mythology. They could have gone in a quirkier direction and called it Your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, but I guess we can wait until the next reboot in 2020 for that. There’s also a new image, the large version of which you can see below. (via ComingSoon.net)
