Tweet to unlock the exclusive new trailer for #MadMax


"Tweet To Launch/Unlock A Trailer" - while not necessarily the "latest" trend in social media, but a trend nevertheless = "Forcing" a movie to "trend" on Twitter, is frankly quite a sad note for the film itself, IMHO … but then again, it IS #MadMax - sooooo *RETWEET* :p

Meanwhile, here's a new "poster" - which looks like a cover for a novel adaptation, but tis cool either way :)

Jonathan Bergeron Paints "Delicatessen"


An "underpainting" by Jonathan Bergeron AKA "Johnny Crap" (http://johnnycrap.bigcartel.com) of actor "Dominique Pinon" as seen in my ultimate fav French film ; "Delicatessen"! I can rave on about this 1991 film for ages (but perhaps another post is warranted :p) … meanwhile, I cannot wait to see how this oil on wood piece turns out … and quite frankly, this is just about "right" for my tastes and delight :)

And if the reference flies pass your heads, then you are truly missing out on a fine slice of celluloid, IMHO, and you need to track down the film to experience it! Directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro, Jean-Pierre has since gone unto "The City of Lost Children", "Amélie", and yes even "Alien: Resurrection" :)

"Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life."

Meawnhile, check out the below video (blogged on TOYSREVIL), which was credited for bringing the concept back into the public consciousness and helping the film get green lit.

"Leaked test footage for Deadpool featuring Ryan Reynolds. To everyone who thinks this is what the actual film is going to look like, you're wrong. Its just test footage used entirely in CGI and was only used to pitch the movie. It has also been announced that the movie will be released sometime in 2016" (via)

Karate Kid ReAction Figures from Funko x Super7


Released and currently available at both the Super7 store in San Francisco and newly opened San Diego storefront, are blister-carded ReAction figures from Funko x Super7 - showcasing characters from the movie "KARATE KID" (FYI: The 80s version, not that the Jackie Chan + Jaden Smith version from 2010 :p).

'ReAction" figure designs are based on the 80s aesthetics of toy figures, which included simple articulation, no bended knees (sorry you can;t pose "Daniel" in his "crane" kungfu-training move, folks LOL) and utilitarian face sculpts (and I am being utterly "kind" with my description here ... lol), wholly unlike the "mini-mes" on toy shelves today! Pretty awesome a "retro/vintage" line of figures, without the secondary market hyped-upped prices, of course … but then again, different folks might differ in prices …

6 x characters to collect in the current "Karate Kid" series - including Mr Miyagi, Daniel (in two guises) - with each priced at US$9.99 in-store and online via www.super7store.com. Check in with your fav retailer(s) for availability near you :)

"The Karate Kid is a 1984 American martial arts romantic drama film directed by John G. Avildsen and written by Robert Mark Kamen, starring Ralph Macchio, who was 22 years old during principal photography. Noriyuki "Pat" Morita and Elisabeth Shue.[3][4] It is an underdog story in the mold of a previous success, Avildsen's 1976 film Rocky. It was a commercial success upon release, and garnered favorable critical acclaim, earning Morita an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor." (Wiki)
So what happens when Karate Kid meets Star Wars? Mr Miyagi might give Yoda a run with his words of wisdom tho ... :)

Target Exclusive Avengers: Age of Ultron Faded Vision Pop! by Funko


Ah-soooo… so The Vision DOES FADE! Or at least the toy-version does, nobody has mentioned anything about the big-screen Avengers: Age of Ultron movie, right? RIGHT? :p …

*cough*

Funko has just announced a "Target Exclusive Faded Vision", which hopefully does not spoil the movie moment THAT much … heh. No repeals date/schedule as yet, besides "The Target Exclusive Faded Vision is beginning to arrive in stores now." via Funko-press … now if the "fade" was into translucent/clear vinyl, that would've been utterly awesome! Juz saying'…"

Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor from #BatmanvSuperman: Dawn of Justice Revealed

Superman's nemesis "Lex Luthor" from the eagerly anticipated Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice revealed in the latest Entertainment Weekly, featuring actor Jesse Eisenberg going full-bald, ala the comicbooks aaaaand every other depiction of Luthor anywhere ...

“He’s not any of the Lexes that you’ve seen, that’s for sure,” director Zack Snyder tells EW. “Other than him being a captain of industry and one person to the world and another person to himself. And bald, of course….Our Lex is disarming and he’s not fake. He says what he believes and he says what’s on his mind. If you can unravel the string and decipher what he means, it’s all there.” (via Entertainment Weekly)
