Who Could This Possibly Be?

It looks like this mind-melting connect-the-dots mystery will just have to be solved the hard way if one is to finally uncover the identity of the mysterious stranger with x-ray vision who wears underwear and a belt outside his cape and spandex outfit, while sporting a big "S" on his chest.

Some people with less resolve might give up, never knowing the answer. However, I'm sure there's someone out there who's bright enough and up to the task.

Iron Man 3: First Look At Mandarin, Teaser Footage

On the eve of the unveiling for the Iron Man 3 debut trailer, Entertainment Weekly has released a photo giving our first official look at Sir Ben Kingsley in his role as Iron Man's key signature villain, Mandarin.

While it is recognized that the solo sequel to Marvel's Armored Avenger will feature Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark forming a new bond with his armor by way of nano-technology, it will also delve into new pathological territory for the billionaire genius; that of darkness and doubt.

Now, the Marvel movieverse's Iron Man will contend with his greatest, most iconic comic book rival for the first time on the big screen.

Check below for the teaser footage released this past weekend which is designed to whet our appetites for tomorrow's trailer debut.

This Shrek Is Always Angry

This book bag must represent the director's cut of Shrek 2 in which Shrek is accidentally exposed to gamma radiation and then uses his new powers to take vengeance on the would-be cuckolding Prince Charming by ripping off his head and punting it into orbit.

Besides being a nightmare of a clearance process over intellectual property, it may have been a bit dark for a film marketed to children.

The first three Paranormal Activity films grossed a combined worldwide total of nearly $577 million with production costs that are probably dwarfed by the check from your last dinner at Applebee's.

Thus, the reason that this weekend's launch of Paranormal Activity 4 is happening and predicted to hit big is hardly supernatural.

The latest honest trailer from the folks at Screen Junkies shows us that the Blair Witch phenomena back in 1999 would be far from the last time moviegoers would get sucked into the genre of "star-less, crudely-produced, mundane home movie horror."

Justice League Looks For A 2015 Showdown

It looks like the Justice League could be ready to give some heavy competition to The Avengers sequel.

At this point, it appears that Summer 2015 is the target release period for this dream film, which Warner Bros studio hopes to begin shooting as soon as next year.

With the announcement yesterday that Warner is indeed moving forward with their own answer to the big-screen dream crossover, it seems that their ambitions won't be diminished by Marvel's over $1.5 billion money-making machine. Thus, 2015 could be the year that two of the biggest titans in the history of comic book films square-off.

What will DC have up their sleeves to unseat the current champs at Marvel?

Skrillex In Back To The Future

Posted October 19, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

This video shows how Back to the Future would have gone if Marty McFly traded his guitar for a MacBook.

1955 was a different, more innocent time when teens were discovering rock and roll while worrying about whether or not the Soviet Union would drop The Bomb.

However, who would have ever thought that the Enchantment Under the Sea dance that year would end up being the place where something very different would drop: The Bass.

Meanwhile, Marty's future counterpart is preoccupied with trying to delete Gray's Sports Almanac from Biff's iPad.

Not Quite A Transformer

This group also happen to be robots in disguise...as a legitimate popular toy line.

That being said, the "Framstorners" are committed to distinguishing themselves from those other more well-known Bots with a new film directed by Michael Bay starring Shia LaBeouf and his trusty yellow form-changing robot car creatively known as "Sportscar."

Actual Fantasy Football

After this wizard running back managed to slip past the angry Balrog on the narrow bridge, he then made his way down the mountainside and spiked the sacred pigskin of Khazad-dum on the rocks.

This time, everything had gone according to the game-plan in his wizard coach's grimoire.

MacGyver Song Curls Your Mullet

Posted October 17, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

This tribute to television's king of makeshift inventions shows that Richard Dean Anderson's US-based secret agent didn't need any of the fancy pre-made gadgets like that English pretty boy with a penchant for fancy drinks.

Armed only with a Swiss Army knife and the know-how to make a nuclear bomb with a phone charger, TV remote, and a Wrigley's wrapper, the case for "The Mac" being the smoothest international badass was clearly and effectively made.

Chewbacca Cabinet

Looks like this is one scenario where you'll actually have to bend your Wookie.

This cabinet is known to pull people's arms out of their sockets when it's loose.

Who would have thought that the quickest way to silence its loud and perpetual howls would be a few squirts of WD-40?
