We posted the new The Wolverine trailer earlier today and while most of the live-action stuff we’ve seen has been pretty cool, some of the promotional posters have not. The exception was this gorgeously illustrated one. It was so popular, in fact, that people started stealing them en masse. Well I hope they discovered a new kind of glue since then because we’ve got two more featuring the women from the film. Above is Yukio, hit the jump for Viper.READ MORE

Math was never fun for me so I appreciate it when people try and make it so. For instance, Kasia Jackowska and her Drawing Mathematics series. She illustrated math concepts through animal forms and had them published by the Department of Mathematics of the University of Warsaw. Just don’t ask me to identify them.READ MORE

We’ve been wary about posting Ghostbusters 3 stories. First of all, it feels like there’s a new one every other week (if it’s any indication, our last post on the subject was titled “Part 73948 of the Ghostbusters 3 Saga“). And secondly, it never feels like it’s really going to happen. But Dan Akyroyd spoke recently about what the story would entail and it seems like a solid idea.READ MORE

“I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress. We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies. Do not want to make light of something that some construe as mysogenistic. What I’m saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future. Also, I need to learn how to spell ‘misogynistic.’” - Star Trek Into Darkness writer Damon Lindelof in a string of four tweets sent out roughly a half hour after we posted his lackluster answer as to why actress Alice Eve was made to strip down in the film for no reason.
It’s nice to see Lindelof comment on the complaints at all, and we hope he really is more mindful of these types of things in the future but we must point out – having half naked actors in a sex scene does not equal the treatment Eve received. Again, it’s all about context and Dr. Carol Marcus was put on display with none. What do you think of Lindelof’s apology?

“Why is Alice Eve in her underwear, gratuitously and unnecessarily, without any real effort made as to why in God’s name she would undress in that circumstance? Well there’s a very good answer for that. But I’m not telling you what it is. Because… uh… MYSTERY?” - Star Trek Into Darkness writer Damon Lindelof writing probably the most idiotic thing he could write in a letter to MTV.
They had asked, “I feel like I have to start with the biggest mystery/conversation that’s surrounded the film from the get go. Why is Alice Eve in her underwear at one point?”
Because, well, that is an incredibly relavent question to ask.
I mentioned it briefly in my non-TMS review but really, I could have gone on for pages about it. Eve’s character of Dr. Carol Marcus was touted to have incredible intelligence, though instead of allowing her to use it to effect the plot, she was used as the most blatant eye-candy I’ve seen in a long time. We see this kind of thing a lot in Hollywood, sure, but the scene in question was akin to an actor holding up and verbally speaking the name of a can of Coca-Cola during a scene about cats or general surgery. And for a writer to respond to serious criticism in such a flippant manner is disappointing to say the least. Not to mention what he said when asked about a rumored shirtless scene for Benedict Cumberbatch’s character:READ MORE
