Because teenagerdom is a mess, but some people handle it better than others.

A stop-motion steampunk fantasy that’s “Dickens by way of Monty Python,” is produced by Laika (ParaNorman and Coraline), and features the vocal talents of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Elle Fanning, and Game of Thrones‘ Isaac Hempstead Wright? And it’s set in a town where people are obsessed with cheese?

Artist Ale Giorgini packs characters a’ plenty in his group portrait versions of cult movies. It’s hard for me to pick a favorite: Is it Ghostbusters, because they’re all coming out of a proton pack?The Big Lebowski, because of the ferret (sorry, marmot) hanging out in the background? Star Wars, because… it’s Star Wars?
I can’t decide. I want to wallpaper my apartment with all of them.READ MORE

No, your eyes do not deceive you. That is, in fact, James McAvoy, Benedict Cumberbatch, Natalie Dormer, and Anthony Head all in one photo, along with David Schofield (the Pirates of the Caribbean movies), David Harewood (Homeland), and radio drama director Dirk Maggs. And yes, the Neil they’re greeting is Neil Gaiman. That would be because they’re part of the casting lineup, revealed today in a blog post by Gaiman, of the BBC Radio 4 production of Gaiman’s Neverwhere. And the British awesome doesn’t stop there: Also in the cast are Sophie Okonedo, Bernard Cribbins, Romola Garai, and Sir Christopher Lee.
Hypable says that the lineup is “like something from a Tumblr fantasy-casting meme,” and I’d have to disagree, but only because of the lack of Tom Hiddleston. Otherwise that assessment is spot-on.READ MORE

It’s not a trailer, but dammit, it’s something. The viral campaign for Guillermo del Toro‘s Pacific Rim, out next July, has gotten underway with this short video, a “Test of the Kaiju Emergency Alert System.” The Kaiju in question are alien monsters that have attacked Earth before the starting-point of the film, necessitating the creation of giant human-piloted robots, or Jaegers, to fight them. This super-short promo (only 35 seconds) doesn’t give us any footage, but a countdown clock on the official Website suggests that we’re only 14 days, 5 hours, and 48 minutes away from some trailer-y goodness. Something tells me that I’ll be well and truly freaking out 14 days, 5 hours, and 48 minutes from now. Just a hunch.
Hit the jump for the second part of the Pacific Rim viral campaign so far, a memo dealing with the aftermath of the “tragic Trespasser event.”
Sure, there’s not much there but… Jesus, I don’t think I can handle a six-and-a-half month wait. Someone fetch me my time machine!READ MORE

I do love a good movie montage. This one includes every film—plus 53 extras—in IMDB’s Top 250, meaning we get clips from The Shawshank Redemption, The Dark Knight, Big, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Citizen Kane and 298 more in a mere two and a half minutes. Can you spot your favorite movie?

Now that all the craziness of last weekend’s New York Comic Con has worn off, we at The Mary Sue have combed through the cosplay—Lady Lokis, Homestuck a’plenty and a whole lot of Adventure Time—to pick some of our favorites. (Yes, we’ve included genderswapped DC villains, featuring TMS’ own Susana Polo and Jill Pantozzi as Bane and Captain Boomerang, respectively. What? It’s really good cosplay!)READ MORE

Hey, remember last week when Matt Smith said he’d love to do an episode of Doctor Who in New Zealand and have Peter Jackson direct it? Then Jackson was all, “Totes.” Wheels are now in motion for this to actually happen thanks to one Who producer.READ MORE
