If you haven’t heard of the upcoming Tom Cruise movie Oblivion, let me just say this – it kind of looks like WALL-E. So it’s no surprise YouTuber Giant Mimosas decided to lay the audio from the Oblivion trailer on top of WALL-E footage. And it’s kind of perfect.
Melbourne, Australia commissioned a cute video to remind its passengers to exercise save behavior when boarding trains or waiting at stations called “Dumb Ways to Die.” Seattle’s Cinesaurus created this homage video to it all about the Mars Curiosity Rover
I feel obligated to point out that since all the rovers are referred to as “she,” like many other inanimate vehicles, this video contains a brief moment of lesbian robot love. It also contains references to Amelia Earhart, Aliens, Half-Life 3, Doctor Who, and at about 1:05, something that just might make an xkcd fan tear up, so that’s pretty cool too.
It’s been a while since Pixar’s WALL-E hit theaters but we haven’t forgotten how much we love that little robot. Apparently neither has Mike Senna. He’d previously built a working R2-D2 and took him to City of Hope pediatric cancer charity events but decided to take on another challenge. He worked 25 hours a week on WALL-E, outside his normal work hours, for over two years to complete the project. Check out the video above but also check out Senna’s blog for some more info, pictures, and fun! I have never wanted a robot to be my best friend more than right now.
Hey, remember just a little while ago, we posted an amazing mashup trailer, “The Lion King Rises”? And then it exploded all over the internet and now has over a million views? Brad Hansen has treated us once again to an excellent trailer combo featuring Pixar‘s Wall-E and the upcoming Alien prequel, Prometheus. It’s already gotten the blessing of Prometheus screenwriter Damon Lindelof on Twitter. After the jump, contrast and compare with the real Prometheus trailer.
Not that we’re complaining, but Pixar‘s Brave doesn’t come out until 2013. We’ve barely seen any official art from it, but some of us are way too psyched to not draw up some fan art featuring our newest heroine, Merida. This piece is by DeviantARTist Keena53, and we are more than happy to share it! (via Diary of a Death Starlette)
