  1. Comic-Con Interviews: The Book of Life Will Bring Mexican Folklore to the Big Screen in a Unique Way

    “As a lover of animated films, I kept going, ‘When is the Mexican story going to happen? When is the Mexican princess going to show up?’” queried director Jorge R. Gutierrez before a packed crowd at the San Diego Comic-Con press conference for his new animated feature, The Book of Life. He’s not the only one who’s been wondering when the rich folkloric traditions of Mexico, especially given their relevancy to America’s growing Hispanic population, might be mined by a Hollywood.

  4. Jurassic Park Without CGI Is Still Surprisingly Great [Video]

    This makes Goldblum's acting seem next-level.

    What would Jurassic Park look like if it was made pre-CGI and for a budget of less than thirty dollars? Pretty awesome/hilarious, if this video from Michael T. Mann is any indication. His creative remake is a reminder of what can be accomplished with cardboard, crayons, and a little Schwarzenegger. Seriously, that first dino reveal killed me.

  7. The Perils of Being in 3D: This Version of The Lion King’s Hilarious

    For people of a certain age, there's no denying that the seminal scenes from Disney's The Lion King had an impact on their childhood. Granted, not everyone was a child during the '90s, but those that were know the sting of Mufasa's final scene all too well. It's sad, and depressing, but rarely if ever has the phrase "spooky in a surreal way" been added to that mix. Someone somewhere considered this an oversight and made a video to solve this problem.

    we loled

    A lot of people still find what Lord of the Rings/Planet of the Apes actor Andy Serkis does completely ridiculous.

    Brooke Shields and Peter Gallagher will be thrilled about this, and James Cameron is going to get a million ideas! Will computer-generated eyebrows be the wave of the future, finally give every pitiful actor the chance to express themselves even better through the curtains over the windows of their souls? I dunno guys, I think this is gonna be huge. But I'm going to have to insist on 3D if it does happen. (Warning: contains some NSFW language.) (via BuzzFeed)
