    ‘The Vault': A Bank Job / Horror Movie Starring James Franco (Trailer)

    As a filmgoer I tend to be enthusiastic for any unusual generic combinations – for instance, there aren’t very many movies that combine bank robbery with horror, and that’s the novel combo promised by The Vault, a new upcoming horror movie with a creepy trailer now on the internet. The Vault is about two sisters […]

    ‘My Friend Dahmer': Jeffrey Dahmer Begins (Trailer)

    This weekend was San Diego Comic-Con, which always brings with it a deluge of trailers, teasers, posters, and other promotional materials for the next year and change worth of pop culture stuff. I don’t think the new teaser for My Friend Dahmer is a part of that deluge, but it’s nevertheless fun to imagine a […]

  • Radio Flyer ‘Star Wars’ Landspeeder: You Know, for Jedi

    Radio Flyer ‘Star Wars’ Landspeeder: You Know, for Jedi

    When the original Star Wars movie came out, the Hollywood Toy Industrial Complex was still churning out cheap Planet of the Apes action figures, and was nowhere near its current size and power.

At San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, a teaser trailer for the movie was released, and it looks like an overload […]

    ‘Bright': LA Cop Will Smith Gets an Orc for a Partner (Trailer)

    It’s a premise that’s been behind many a cop movie in the last 50 years or so: Hardened cop is partnered with some unorthodox recruit to the force, and they both end up teaching each other unexpected lessons about law enforcement. That’s the hook behind the upcoming Netflix Will Smith vehicle Bright, only this time […]

    Micro but Many: A New Online Home for Micro Machines

    I was a Hot Wheels and Matchbox car kid, but I still have respect for the Micro Machines brand. I also have respect for a good, detailed online gallery, which is why I’m always intrigued by a site like Micro but Many, a new online showcase for the Micro Machine collection of Tim Smith. Micro […]

    Japanese ‘The Defenders’ Promo Narrated by Stan Lee (Video)

    I keep reading that Marvel Comics overlord Stan Lee is retiring from public life, and then I keep seeing footage of him at conventions and cameos in the movies and TV shows based on his creations.
