These people are striking back in a huge way!
'Strike Back' is back. After last week's clip from the Cinemax action series Strike Back, you could be forgiven for thinking this show was all about quiet conversations. If you still think that after watching this clip, though, you're an idiot. It's machine guns goin' off all over the place, y'all! If this sort of thing interests you, you can check out the latest episode on Cinemax, tonight, Friday, October 14 at 10:00 PM. And remember: If you live with other people, turn down the TV, would you? Those ammo bursts can keep a person awake.
Don't eff with the USA. Or Britain. And certainly don't eff with a special task force of agents from both countries.
I don't want to give it away, but someone is someone else's father, and this kid just can't believe it. This kid cannot BELIEVE what is going on at the end of The Empire Strikes Back. If you look carefully, you can see him emote virtually every human emotion on the spectrum. The sister seems initially as shocked as her brother does, but quickly picks her jaw up off the floor, unlike her flabbergasted sibling. No wonder the mom or dad whipped out the video camera for this thing. Seeing Star Wars (and Empire and Jedi) for the first time is a seminal moment in anyone's life, but the fact that this little moppet was rocking a Daily Bugle t-shirt leads me to believe that he might like this type of thing more than most. I'll bet you even money this kid shits himself when he watches The Sixth Sense for the first time.
I didn't count one BRAHM! Make it again. A fan took footage from The Empire Strikes Back and ran it through the modern trailer filter. What it lacks in BRAHMs and indecipherable twisted metal hulks, it more than makes up for with zero subtlety. The result is an accurate depiction of how today's movie trailers reveal too much, and I'm not certain, but I suspect this Vader guy knows this Young Skywalker guy's father.
Spencer Tracy plays Carl Fredricksen, complete with giant hipster old person glasses, in this expertly-done recreation of the 'Up' trailer story using live action film footage. Here's the internet mashup that'll make you cry. Well, it'll make you cry if you remember watching the original Up, and I don't think there was a dry pair of 3D glasses in the theater I was in after Ellie kicks the bucket. From Ivan Guerrero, the maker of "Ghostbusters Trailer Recreated Using Old Movie Clips" and "Empire Strikes Back Trailer Recreated Using Old Movie Clips" comes, wait for it, "Up Trailer Recreated Using Old Movie Clips." Spencer Tracy plays Carl Fredricksen, complete with giant hipster old person glasses, in this expertly-done "premake" of Pixar's story using live action film footage. They even managed to find a solid look-alike for Kevin the Freaky-Ass Looking Bird. Next, someone will probably swede Guerrero's remake trailers, and after that, the universe collapses in on itself.

Women's prison is rough. And sexy. [post-album postid="28909" item="2"]From the creators of Femme Fatales Magazine comes a new late-night anthology series, "Femmes Fatales," about powerful, sexy and dangerous women, debuting this Friday at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT exclusively on Cinemax. In each episode, women find ways of dealing with their problems and relaying on their survival instincts to get them out of sticky situations. The show is inspired by and styled in the tradition of pulp stories, film noir and graphic novels, and takes place in contemporary settings. In this clip from the first episode, movie star Lacey Rivers (Kit Willesee) is in for the role of a lifetime after her fast-living lands her in jail. She has to rely on a starstruck guard to help her navigate the treacherous terrain of women's prison. And that includes a sexy, take no shit cellmate. Things could get rough. Check out "Femme Fatales" this Friday night on Cinemax.
We're fighting fire with fire. Fire being Zach Braff in the first instance, and your money in the second. Zach Braff spends his time sleeping with models and eating great food. If he has money for that, he shouldn't need the public's help with funding his vanity project. Our "Don't Back Zach" campaign was launched in response to the new wave of celebrity Kickstarted vanity projects. Whether it's Melissa Joan Hart raising money for a film where she doesn't play Clarissa, or Zach Braff raising money for a movie he wants you to think is the sequel to Garden State, it seems like there's no celebrity too small or idea too dumb to not get its own crowdfunding campaign. So, us too! Enough is enough. Famous people have two things we normals don't: money and access. By turning to crowdfunding, they've gamed the system, cashing in on their fame to make any project they want with no risk to their own bankroll, and owing no profits to their "investors" if its a success. We need to send them a message that this is NOT OK, and with your help we can do just that… We've put together a full-page advertisement telling everyone we "Don't back Zach." We'll need $10,000 to run it in the local film & TV industry magazine, the Hollywood Reporter, and if we hit $200,00 we'll go national in a magazine like Entertainment Weekly. And if we get $5,000,000 we'll carve it into the moon! All funds will be returned if we don't hit our 10k goal!
Comic-Con, secret government alien (?) weed, girl-on-robot sex: these are the topics that all movies should be discuss. We've got some new clips from Team Hot Fuzz's upcoming film Paul (courtesy of British sites Empire and Sky). Simon Pegg and Nick Frost never fail to disappoint, though I have to admit, I've had my doubts about this project. No Edgar Wright directing, an alien that's just Seth Rogen as an alien (they could have slapped some antennae on him and saved a space ton of CG money) and a big part for Kristen Wiig, the SNL cast member who I've fast-forwarded past so many times, my TiVO does it for me now. However, in these clips, I can see the elements working together nicely. Comic-Con, secret government alien (?) weed, girl-on-robot sex: these are the topics that all movies should discuss. Plus director Greg Mottola shot Superbad, which I continue to McLovin, despite how dated that reference has already become. Paul will beam you into theaters March 18. (JoBlo)
He explains 'Total Recall' for you, in case you have trouble following Arnold Schwarzenegger films. I wish there was a button on my computer that let me write with an Arnold Schwarzenegger accent. Sadly, the technology just isn't there yet, so please just run a loop of Arnie quotes through your head as you read this. May I suggest "Get your ass to Mars," "It's not a tumor," and "Get to the chopper!" Some gentleman with the YouTube handle of "buzzclikverifyme" went through the trouble (pleasure?) of piecing together some choice bits from Arnold Schwarzenegger's Total Recall commentary. The commentary also features another bizarrely awesome accent, which I am going to assume belongs to Dutch director Paul Verhoeven. I can't do the clip justice. Simply put, it's Arnie pointing out painfully obvious points about the film (especially to those who like the film enough to want to watch the commentary). Take four minutes out of your life and enjoy this clip that reminds us that we can't stay mad at Arnold. (Film Drunk)
