Famous on the Internets

The first trailer for Safety Not Guaranteed has hit and, much like the ad from which it's inspired, this is not a joke.

The world of memes is about nab one of its biggest accolades yet, as what started nearly a decade ago on YTMND as a mash-up of an image and an audio file of "Push it to the Limit" from Scarface now becomes the plot of a major motion picture.

Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation and Mark Duplass of The League turn the traditional cookie-cutter romcom on its head as a dramatized version of the Internet's most famous mullet finds romance on the big screen with a magazine writer trying to unlock the secrets of that which he had only done "once before."

Safety Not Guaranteed hits theaters on June 8.

Don't Take Your Eyes Off Him!

Posted March 22, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

This homage to a famously-creepy cat video has amped-up the creepiness to epic proportions.

It doesn't matter if you know how it's going to end, it's still not recommended for those with weak bladder control.

Battlestar Galactica: SyFy Passes On New Series

It appears that the upcoming (and mysterious) new franchise entry, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome will NOT be appearing on SyFy as a series.

The big brass at the channel, which carried its series predecessors has apparently passed on the project, which recently had some test footage leaked as a "trailer" that was actually met with much acclaim from the fans. (Which would subsequently be taken down in mass with furious vengeance.)

So, what happened with this franchise revival and does it still have a future?

Girl Records Her First Ski Jump

Posted March 19, 2012 - By Moye Ishimoto

A fourth grader goes down her very ski jump. But before that, she has to talk herself into going over the ledge. She should have listened to this famous motivational speaker first.


The latest trailer for the famous board game adaptation, Battleship has hit.

If it hasn't already been apparent, it's clear that director, Peter Berg has mastered the Michael Bay formula for "giant robotic forms blowing s**t to hell" filmmaking. We're still not sure what it is that we're seeing, but it looks pretty damn epic. (Again, another Bay-esque quality.)

For star, Taylor Kitsch, it represents another shot at box-office gold after this past weekend's John Carter got "Loraxed" by kiddie competition. With a supporting cast of Alexander Skarsgård, swimsuit hottie, Brooklyn Decker, pop star, Rihanna, and Liam motherf**king Neeson, Kitsch may get that chance.

Battleship hits theaters ashore on May 18.

300 Follow-Up May Get Xerxes Back

It seems that the upcoming 300 follow-up film, which was rumored to feature the first film's villain, pierced-Persian overlord, Xerxes, could actually see the return of the actor who portrayed him in the original.

Actor, Rodrigo Santoro, who underwent a radical transformation to play the buff, hedonistic, war-monger who believed himself to be a God, confirmed in an interview with international website, UOL, that he was in negotiations to reprise the role. 

What, then, is the deal with this film?

Never has a departing pleasantry been so eviscerating as it was famously done by Willy Wonka.

Now, his iconic and meme-inspiring put-down/final-test has been remixed to tremendously-catchy results.

All it needs is breakdancing Oompa-Loompas and obese German children with chocolate smeared on their faces doing The Robot.

Dog Does Epic Ball-Bopping

I think this might be the dog's audition tape for the USA Olympic Volleyball Team.

Could London, as The Clash so famously said, be "calling?"

Ralph McQuarrie Star Wars Concept Artist Passes Away

Ralph McQuarrie, the conceptual artist behind the Star Wars films, as well as Raiders of the Lost Ark, Battlestar Galactica, and several other famous projects, has passed away over the weekend at the age of 82.

It is well-documented that McQuarrie's concept art was the primary force behind much of the visual aesthetics for the films in the original Star Wars trilogy, which have become so indelible in popular culture worldwide.

Check out some of McQuarrie's seminal artwork below and read George Lucas' tribute.

If Dr. Seuss Wrote Star Wars

If Dr. Seuss Wrote Star Wars

Can you imagine if Dr. Seuss wrote Star Wars as one of his famous picture books? We probably would be rhyming a lot more at our nerd conventions. Check out the other illustrations by cartoonist Adam Watson!
