Awesome Art We've Found Around The Net: Halo, Indiana Jones, Napoleon Dynamite, Rambo

Some cliche somewhere said that 'a picture is worth a thousand words.' This has proven to be the case for me and especially when it comes to fan art. I have always sought out great fan art and have wanted to share it with as many people as possible. "Awesome Artwork We've Found Around The Net" is the outlet for that passion. In this column I will showcase the...

Check out these unused concept designs for Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy

There were several ideas that never came to fruition in Sam Raimi 's SPIDER-MAN trilogy. I guess that Marc Webb is currently making up for that in his own. Over at Jim Carson Design, there's some interesting concept art for Black Cat, Green Goblin, Spidey's suit, and much more. I don't know what it is, but there's something about that Goblin mask that I like. The mechanical suit from...

Hugh Jackman explains how Wolverine almost appeared in Sam Raimi's Spider-man

Hugh Jackman is the eternal optimist who has been lobbying for the studios to get their shit in order and crossover Wolverine, X-Men, Spider-Man, and Fantastic Four with the Marvel Cinematic Universe that is home to THE AVENGERS. While everyone knows the red tape is a financial nightmare to make that happen, fans will always dream about it. But, little did we know, but before...

Check out this stunning before and after video of The Great Gatsby's special effects

As a Baz Luhrmann fan, I was greatly disappointed in THE GREAT GATSBY. Visually stunning as usual, the story itself felt stilted and grossly miscast, something I rarely think when it is Leonardo DiCaprio in the role. But, much like MOULIN ROUGE, you are so entranced by the dazzling show on display that you sometimes overlook the substance in favor of the style. THE GREAT GATSBY as...

Teaser trailer for Will Ferrell's IFC miniseries The Spoils of Babylon

Since launching in 2006 the comedy video website Funny or Die has been slowly working its way up to television and film. The site was founded by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay 's production company and the two funny men have released some pretty hilarious stuff on the site, including the classic "The Landlord" video featuring McKay's daughter. Funny or Die is...

Baz Luhrmann calls himself an idiot for turning down the chance to direct a Harry Potter film

Not sure how many of you went out to see THE GREAT GATSBY when it released, but my Facebook feed was filled with some rather harsh reviews of the flick. Most saying that F. Scott Fitzgerald's book was just not meant for the big screen. One novel that shone brightly in theaters-- HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER'S STONE was once offered to director Baz Luhrmann . The director...

His next door neighbor, the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby ( Leonardo DiCaprio ) is infamous for his wild parties, as well as the possibly illicit origins of his wealth.

Cool Videos: Leonardo DiCaprio's career told through his characters screaming

Leonardo is one of the best actors alive who has never won an Oscar. Much like Paul Giamatti , DiCaprio has a simmering intensity that explodes on the big screen often and spectacularly. While Giamatti has often been relegated to a character actor, DiCaprio has leading man good looks which has allowed him to play a wide array of characters who explode at the drop of a hat. The good...

This featurette gives a convincing argument for why The Great Gatsby should be seen in 3D

Since it was initially announced, I have been skeptical of THE GREAT GATSBY being in 3D. I understood the decision from both a business standpoint as well as the fact that Baz Luhrmann is first and foremost a showman, but what could a drama film really benefit from in the realm of 3D? Now just days before it hits theaters, we have an explanation as to why you should don the polarized...

New trailer for Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby is all about the mysterious Jay Gatsby. Plus a new poster

I've said before that I'm not that high on THE GREAT GATSBY but this new trailer is my favorite so far for the film. The trailer highlights Leonardo DiCaprio 's Jay Gatsby and hints at some of the character's secret past. If you've read the book you know the film isn't just extravagant parties and polo: things get dark and I'm glad they are more of it is shown in this trailer. One...
