Benedict Cumberbatch Does A Wicked Jar-Jar Binks Impression

Why? Because he can, that's why. Big ups to fanboy (and especially fangirl) fave Benedict Cumberbatch, who, despite his upright British manner and role selection, seems to be something of a giant goofball. In this interview, with little prompting, Benedict, who calls himself a bit of a poseur when it comes to fanboy culture, offers up not one, but two killer impressions. The first, as mentioned in the title, is nobody's favorite Star Wars character, Jar-Jar Binks. The second, slightly more understandable impression, is Gollum from Lord of the Rings. Take a look and fall in love with Cumberbatch all over again.


There's So Much To Love About The New 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Trailer

Chewie looks good after all these years. What's his secret? Attendees of today's Star Wars Celebration event were treated to a surprise as J.J. Abrams unveiled the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens without his first forcing them to solve a complex puzzle via viral marketing. And here, hours later, we're free to enjoy it from the comfort of our homes without having to worry about a Jar Jar cosplayer blocking our view. What a time to be alive and a shut-in!


'Star Wars: Episode VII' Trailer Also Gets The 'Spaceballs' Treatment

The Schwartz Awakens? Word on the geek street is that the new Star Wars: Episode VII trailer is set to become the most-viewed movie trailer of all time. No surprise there; it's Star Wars. It should also be no surprise that the trailer is being recut, effed-with, and parodied in just about every way imaginable. And this time, it's Filmgeekery doing Spaceballs, the Mel Brooks parody of the original three Star Wars installments. The trailer is really just Spaceballs set to the sounds and dialogue of the new film. And if you don't like this, you're a joyless monster.


Jason Momoa Talks About 'Conan', 'Expendables', And Beer

Momoa sounds a little cocky. You'd be cocky too if you were Conan. Superficially, Jason Momoa sounds like a real privileged jerk during his Q&A at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin. Note the "sounds like." For a muscular dude, recently greeted with success, it's easy to dismiss his fame as the result of dumb luck and...maybe dumb person. However, in context, his self-aggrandizing proclamations aren't only legit, but they're somewhat endearing. The guys wants little more than to enjoy his success (He's the first one to ridicule the fact that he was on Baywatch. Cause if he didn't, we would), and to drink two buckets of beer in Austin before staying up all night and catching a flight to New York for more junkets for Conan. Perhaps if this was a higher quality video, it would resonate more. But the fact remains that the guy caught a wave of luck recently, playing a (rather) silent giant in Game of Thrones, and now headlining a potential franchise as Conan. If you're not a fan of the genre or his "acting," it's understandable. But don't fault the guy for playing it too cool while riding a wave of success. Sure. We all hate this type of guy. But if you're will to invest $11 in Conan, or an hour in an episode of Game of Thrones, reserve judgment on the guy that manges to entertain, no matter how big his muscles are, or how long his hair is. In the interest of full disclosure, all SJ employees agree - his hair is too long, and his muscles too big. (Editor's Note: The editor fears Jason Monmoa, and thinks he should wear his hair any way he wants.)
