    ‘Fullmetal Alchemist’ Live-Action Adaptation Gets Trailer (Video)

    Netflix appears to be carving a niche for itself – one of many niches, really – as a home for live-action adaptations of popular anime adaptations. Last year Netflix released a live-action Death Note, and today they released a trailer for an upcoming live action version of Fullmetal Alchemist.  I’m not an anime guy, so I can’t […]

    ‘Incredibles 2′ Olympics Sneak Peek (Video)

    Another day, another upcoming computer animated film gets a teaser to coincide with the Winter Olympics in Pyongyang. But this one is a lot more substantial, and, frankly, a lot more intrinsically valuable, than the previous one. This one is for Incredibles 2, the hotly anticipated sequel to The Incredibles that’s been 14 years in the making. The Incredibles […]

    ‘Batman Ninja’ English Language Trailer (Video)

    Late last year, I jumped the gun somewhat and told my presumably mostly English-reading readership about a trailer for an animated film entitled Batman Ninja, with the caveat that an English language version was hopefully on the way. Now, thankfully, we do indeed have an English dubbed trailer, as well as an official plot synopsis from […]

    ’41x': A Short Film About Lawn Mower Racing (Video)

    The Winter Olympics are currently happening in Pyongyang, which means that people all over the world are entranced by sports they probably don’t give much thought to outside of the Olympics: The luge, speed skating, snowboarding, curling. But there’s another obscure sport, not yet recognized by either of the Olympic committees, that is just as […]

    ‘Chris Rock: Tambourine’ Netflix Date Announcement (Video)

    It’s been a good decade since Chris Rock’s last stand-up special, but his reputation as one of the greatest comics of all time has remained secure. How secure? So secure, in fact, that he can get away with releasing a teaser for his upcoming Netflix special that not only doesn’t contain any jokes, but doesn’t […]

    ‘Every Best VFX Winner Ever’ in One Video

    The Oscars are coming up next month, and they will undoubtedly serve as yet another reminder that the truly most important award isn’t Best Picture but instead Best Visual Effects – after all, what’s more crucial to cinema than visual effects? The folks at Burger Fiction have put together have updated their recurring Every Best VFX […]

    “Black Panther: The Secrets of Wakandan Wardrobe” (Video)

    The clothes, as they say, make the man. This is especially true in the superhero world, and few superhero costumes are as stylishly iconic as the Black Panther’s, primed for big screen glory in his upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe adventure. And the folks at web series Yellow Spandex have very helpfully broken it all down for “Black […]

    “Voldemort v. Vader”: Video Essay Compares Two Antagonists (Video)

    Villains … Ya gotta hand it to ‘em. ScreenPrism recently handed it to two of the most iconic villains of the last few decades: Luke Skywalker’s archnemesis Darth Vader and Harry Potter’s own Voldemort, comparing and contrasting the two for a “Harry Potter and Star Wars matchup” entitled “Voldemort v. Vader.” Joseph Campbell enthusiasts probably won’t be surprised […]

  • ‘The Grinch’ Gets Winter Olympics Teaser (Video)

    ‘The Grinch’ Gets Winter Olympics Teaser (Video)

    I think I’ve written about the upcoming return of The Grinch here before, but since it’s both a slow news day and the first day of the 2018 Winter Olympics, I thought I’d draw your attention to the very least essential part of that exciting athletic event: A teaser for the upcoming reboot featuring the character. The […]
