Comic-Con 2011: Move Into The Future With 'Elysium' Viral

You can be a part of something great. Good news everyone!! Armadyne is hiring. If you're a zero g welder, mega-structure engineer, quantum networker or an expert in the field of zero g coupling and multi-generational planning, you just might find yourself gettin' paid. What you're seeing above is a viral campaign launched to promote Neill Blomkamp's Elysium. ComingSoon came across a recruitment poster at Comic-Con that points to the fictional website Armadyne, where the video is posted. I've gotta say, as far as virals go this looks really impressive. If they're willing to put this kind of money into a web video, imagine what Neill Blomkamp will be able to achieve with his budget. It's going to look sweeeet. Wake me up in 2013 when the movie's released. **locks self in Demolition Man cryo-chamber**  


Comic-Con 2011: Mike Judge Unveils New 'Beavis And Butt-Head' Footage

Beavis and Butt-Head are back, and somehow, they're now smarter than most shows on television.... For fans of Beavis And Butt-Head, there was much to rejoice about during day one of Comic-Con 2011. Well, for most fans, anyway. Unfortunately, this fan spent the entire panel waiting just outside the door, listening to everyone else laugh while I prayed for a few people to give up their seats. As with most of my desperate prayers, this one went unanswered, and I never gained entry. But my bad luck (a.k.a. poor planning) won't stop me from bringing you this clip from the new show. From the looks of it, the new version stays true to the original. By "stays true," I mean the two hapless teenagers are still laughing like morons and maiming each other. And sadly, culture has devolved even further than anticipated since the original show went off the air, which means that the duo now have plenty of new material to ridicule (i.e. Jersey Shore, Teen Mom, UFC matches, etc.). What a sad age we live in.


Comic-Con 2011: No Panel For 'The Hobbit', But There's A Production Video

That'll do, Peter. That'll do. Yesterday, Peter Jackson announced that he would not be bringing The Hobbit to Comic-Con this year. The main reason for this is he has absolutely nothing to show. The director posted this message on his Facebook: Good news and bad news today. Bad news is that we won’t be doing any Hobbit presentation at Comic Con in San Diego this year. New Line and Warner Bros were very happy to support a presentation, but I declined, simply because I felt it was too early. There’s so much more of the films still to shoot. I just wanted to get that out there, because I’ve seen various references to the possibility of something Hobbity at Comic Con. Hate to disappoint anyone. But something tells me we will be there in force next year. Now for the good news… We’ve just finished a new video blog, covering a little more of the first block of shooting. So please enjoy this—at least you don’t have to travel to San Deigo to see it! I’ve been on the go since wrapping the first shooting block, but I’m about to settle down and get into the much delayed 20 Questions. I’ve a few half-written and will get those done very, very soon! I promise! Cheers, Peter J So there you have it. You get the video above, and if you don't like it then, well, I apologize on behalf of all the Jacksons. Especially Joe.


The Machines Are Rising Against Michael Bay

Awwwww. First he's attacked by an air conditioner and now Michael Bay is publicly embarrassed by a teleprompter. While attempting to speak at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Bay was left high and dry when the teleprompter malfunctioned. Though visibly uncomfortable without the assistance of a prompter, Bay soldiered on. He began, "Um, I take — I try to take people on an emotional ride, and, um … " It was at this point that he realized he was talking about Michael Bay films being an emotional ride and excused himself from the stage. On the scale of teleprompter fails, this falls somewhere between Bill O'Reilly's meltdown and Ron Burgundy telling San Diego to go fuck itself.


Chris Hemsworth Is An Action-Hero Computer Nerd In Michael Mann's 'Blackhat' Trailer

The only one who can save the day is the computer nerd who is good at running around. When an evil, "blackhat" hacker starts typing bad words into a computer that hurt the financial markets, the only man who can stop him or her or them is Chris Hemsworth. Currently sentenced to fifteen years in prison for hacking, the brilliant, handsome, athletic computer nerd agrees to help track down the malicious threat to our safety and privacy. Michael Mann's cyber-thriller seems to be taking itself pretty seriously, and while it opens in January 2015, there are rumors that it may open sooner for an Oscar-qualifying limited release. I'm torn. I can't tell if it looks good or forgettable. They're going to need to include a scene where a Ferrari hacks into an airplane if they want to hold my attention.


Steven Soderbergh Reminds Us He's Pretty Talented With Penultimate Film 'Side Effects'

If only we had let him do 'Moneyball'. After losing directing duties on Moneyball, Steven Soderbergh said "f*ck it," and decided to throw in the directing towel. After a few more films. Magic Mike was a hit as it made women everywhere go crazy and rub their titties together, which leaves Soderbergh with two films to go. The first of which is the Rooney Mara-starring Side Effects. In the film, Mara stars as a young woman whose life is perfect after Channing Tatum's return from prison. Everything is all dissolves and sailboats. Then, the dissolves get ominous and she turns to medication and Jude Law besmirching to help cope with the pressure of living with Magic Mike himself. After that, everyone is yelling at everyone else! Yelling is how you know a drama is taut. This Soderbergh is going to really make us sorry that he didn't get to make the version of Moneyball where Demetri Martin yells at Catherine Zeta-Jones.


Comic-Con 2012: Party's Over In New 'Dredd' Clip

Jeez, what a narc. Comic-Con 2012 has also brought us this first clip from the upcoming Dredd. Here we see Karl Urban judging, jurying, and executing all over the place as he busts in on some tweakers and crashes the party. And their faces. Slow motion in action movies gets a pretty bad rap, but here it works really well. If they truly invented a drug that made the world look like it was shot with the Phantom camera, I'd try it. Oh wait. Am I addicted already? They say the first hit's free. When's this movie come out?!? My skin itches and I want to ride the snake to Valhalla!


Honest Action: 'Home Alone'

Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern should be more dead than their careers. Have you ever wondered how many lives your favorite action hero would need to survive a movie? We've teamed up with an actual doctor and took up time he could be using to save lives to bring you the answer. In this edition, we examine just exactly how dead Marv and Harry from Home Alone should be after facing off with Kevin McCallister. In reality, the Wet Bandits would be dead many times over and Kevin would be shipped to a psychiatric ward until he breaks free a la Michael Myers to continue his spree of Christmas murders.
