It’s October 28th already, and you don’t have a Halloween costume. But worry not, because we’ve got your back.
What's with the name?

Anne Hathaway’s made no secret that she really wanted the role of Selina Kyle went she went for it in the casting process for The Dark Knight Rises. It should surprise no one that she’d be 100% down for reprising her role as the character in some form. (Not that any such thing appears to be on the horizon, or is even likely to be on the horizon.)
But the emotion with which she regards the character is pretty endearing:READ MORE

I made myself sit through this five minutes and seven seconds of pure emotional turmoil, and now I’m passing it on to you. Via the miserable sadists at Movie Miscellany, here’s a montage of the 100 Most Depressing Movie Death Scenes. Some of them are legitimately heartbreaking (ARRRTAAAAAX!). For others, your narm mileage may vary. Some of the deaths aren’t really geared toward being depressing at all, like that of Marion Crane in Psycho, which is more of the bone-chilling variety. And there are a few particularly tragic examples missing (Littlefoot’s mother from The Land Before Time, for example. And any of Sean Bean‘s many, many deaths, which the video description acknowledges).
Still. Something tells me that you’ll need to see something chipper and uplifting after watching this. Here’s a baby kangaroo.
Now excuse me while I try and stave off The Iron Giant feels.

Fair warning: Only watch this short film, Escape by Kennedy J. Baruch, if you’re prepared for an emotional gutpunch. In it, a young girl who’s ridiculed by her classmates and neglected by her fighting parents escapes the harsh reality of her everyday life by playing video games, specifically The Legend of Zelda – Twilight Princess. It’s… kinda tough to watch. But still good.

Before watching this video, bear in mind it could take David Bowie down a level of coolness for you. Who are we kidding, Bowie is on the Mount Everest of cool already, this shouldn’t make too much difference. It’s a behind-the-scenes look at one particular aspect of his role as Jareth the Goblin King in Labyrinth – his crystal balls. Listen as Jim Henson and Bowie discuss the real man behind the magic, a juggler named Michael Moschen.

One of the biggest unknowns in the lead-up to The Avengers‘ release was whether or not Mark Ruffalo‘s performance as Bruce Banner would fall flat. Of course, now we know Ruffalo’s take on the Hulk was one of the best parts of the movie. OK, maybe I’m biased in favor of Mark Ruffalo (always), but the point still stands that most reviewers, fans, etc. would agree that casting him more than paid off. So that leaves us with a question: When are we going to get a Mark Ruffalo Hulk movie?!READ MORE

It’s a pretty well-known fact that humpback whales communicate with each other through sound. Their sounds are obviously not articulated in the same way as human words, but the species emit sounds–or songs–as a means of communicating to each other in the water. That is, all except for the 52 Hertz whale, who, while also singing, is singing at such a high frequency that none of the other whales in the ocean can hear it. Because of this, it’s spent its entire life in solitude.READ MORE

As promised, the legend of Ron Burgundy is continuing, and this weekend (with the release of The Dictator), we got our first glimpse at the sequel to Anchorman, which looks like it’s officially called Anchorman: The Legend Continues. It’s just a tease so far, that foxy little minx, but we have received a prospective release year — the one right after this one. So, that’s exciting! Carefully attach some gentle fur holsters to your pet unicorn, ’cause we are getting ready to ride to Pleasure Town!

Back in 1982, Ridley Scott directed a film based on Philip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? called Blade Runner. It went on to become one of the most highly regarded sci-fi films ever. The story took place in 2019 which obviously meant it was time for Hollywood to revisit the idea. Scott has finally announced that his new Blade Runner film will not be a remake, but a sequel, the original screenwriter is involved, and he’ll be putting a woman in Deckard’s shoes this time around. Hit the jump for details!READ MORE

I might be able to top the Benedict Cumberbatch-Frankenstein thing I just posted, because there is another wonderful thing coming to America in the month of June. Remember the Girl Scout cookie-flavored Nestlé Crunch Bars we told you about a while ago? They are happening. They are real. They are coming to stores in June for a limited time. I’ll provide you information on the featured flavors after the jump, and you will be very pleased.READ MORE
