Annual Report On Women In Media Is Predictably Angry Scream-Inducing

Hey everyone! Good news! The Women’s Media Center, founded by Jane Fonda, Robin Morgan, and Gloria Steinem, has released a report summarizing research done by various academic institutions about the state of women both in front of and behind the camera. It’ll hopefully raise awareness about that subject and maybe even lead to some positive change at some point in the future.

The bad news: Everything that’s actually in the report. There’s no “from bad to worse” here, because it’s all terrible. So let’s just say “from awful to also awful” and get this party started.

Disney Sues a Blatant (Alleged) Frozen Knockoff That Really Should Have Known Better

Meet distribution company Phase 4 Films, the Asylum of animation. Are you in the mood for Dreamworks, Pixar, and Disney, but you really, really hate all those production values? Phase 4 has you covered with their bargain basement knockoffs of Brave, Cars, Madagascar, A Bug’s Life/Antz (two for one!), Bee MovieHow to Train Your Dragon, Up, Charlotte’s Web, Kung-Fu Panda (a genderswapped version where the heroine must rescue the “handsome Prince Po”), Shrek (twice!), and, now, Frozen. Only that last one just got them sued.

Never mess with the Mouse House.

Calm Down, Everyone. Tim Burton’s Not Confirmed to Direct the Beetlejuice Sequel

I’ve seen a few sites report that it’s “confirmed” that Tim Burton and Michael Keaton are returning for the long-gestating sequel to Burton’s best movie, Beetlejuice. (Yeah, I said it. Come at me.) That’s not exactly the case, but it is looking (somewhat) possible. So what’s really going on?

Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth Theory… As Explained by Puppets [VIDEO]

Are you familiar with Joseph Cambell‘s monomyth theory, a.k.a. “The Hero’s Journey,” as described in his landmark mythology text The Hero’s with a Thousand Faces? The basic idea is that the same character types and plot beats repeat themselves in story after story. It could be Star Wars or Happy Gilmore: The hero’s journey is there. If you’re still a little shaky, or if you need a refresher course… or, heck, if you just like puppets and/or mythology, Fafa the Groundhog and Mario of Glove and Boots are here to explain it to you by acting out scenes from Harry Potter, The Hobbit, The Wizard of Oz, and more.

Ominous: New Evil Dead Lead Says She’s Still Cleaning Blood Out of Her Ears

There’s so much blood that the blood got stuck in my ear and I had a terrible ear infection when I was there and couldn’t hear for three weeks. This is really gross, but, I cleaned my ear three weeks ago — and I clean my ears every week — but there’s still, and I’m not even kidding, there’s still red coming out of my ears. That’s not a joke. It’s really kind of scary.Jane Levy, on playing main character Mia in the upcoming Evil Dead reboot.

There’s always some apprehension when a classic movie series gets rebooted, and The Evil Dead is no different (though we’re pretty excited about it having a female lead). But there’s one things fans won’t have to worry about: sound like the movie will have enough blood. Levy’s even worried about it being to wild for an R rating.

Sam Raimi Gets Court Order To Halt Unauthorized Evil Dead Film

We’d been hearing a lot of serious chatter about an Evil Dead reboot for some time now. It was serious enough that one actress had been cast as the lead, then replaced with anothera male lead being cast as well, and it’s already been completely show. But Sam Raimi, writer and director of the original, was involved in all of that. He wasn’t involved in Evil Dead 4: Consequences, an unauthorized continuation of his horror series. Thankfully, he’s done something about it.

Garfunkel and Oates Reveal the Cold, Hard Truth About Life in “29/31″ [Video]

Dear younger readers of The Mary Sue: This video by comedy musicians Garfunkel and Oates (aka Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci) is going to drop some knowledge on you, and it should be taken as the truth. Your 20s might seem all awesome and whatevs, and they should. Because once you’re in your 30s, this changes. Take it from someone in her 30s.

Though accepting that the world is not your oyster is actually kind of liberating.

Someone Has Invented The Sonic Screwdriver From Doctor Who (What?!?)

I’m getting weird feelings. Like foresight into a massive time paradox, the result of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space-time continuum and destroy the entire universe. The cause? Scientists taking ideas from science fiction in order to create real devices which will somehow go on to change how fiction writers from the past came up with ideas for no-yet-invented sci-fi devices. (Mark my words, that will be a movie one day). Scientists at the University of Dundee in the UK have created a device that uses ultrasound waves to turn object. In other words, screw them. In even more words, OH MY GOD THEY’VE MADE A SONIC SCREWDRIVER.

Here Is a Video of Spider-Man Being a Wiseacre to a Bad Guy

According to Topless Robot, the clip above is part of a promotion by Kellogg’s, featuring bite-sized portions of The Amazing Spider-Man in a format that is more smartphone-friendly than computer-screen-friendly, but showing off some of the personality that Andrew Garfield has given his character. And that personality is … a little bit of a jerk! But a funny one. So, it’s all perfectly acceptable.
