Watch Some of Your Favorite Literary Characters Gain Faces Through Composite Technology

And I'll Form the Head!

Recently there's been a composite sketch going around of what 50 Shade's of Grey's Christian Grey would look like. And that's all well and good, whatever, he kind of looks like Jonathan Taylor Thomas, etc. What we're interested in this new video and the tumblr that goes along with it, which features the composites of a whole bunch of literary characters. There's something a tad strange about being confronted with the faces of characters we've imagined in our heads for so long when those faces do not belong to famous or soon-to-be-famous actors. That in itself says a lot about what it's like to consume media in today's day and age, so we find this project by Brian Joseph Davis to be very intriguing indeed. (via Thirst For Salt)

We are a fan of badass ladies 'round these parts, it is no secret. Feeding right into that soft spot, the awesome team over at Comediva are now bringing us a sort of parody/showcase of what might happen is some favorite BAMFy fictional characters (and Bella) became roommates. Sort of like The Real World, but with more side-braids and tortured backstories. Obviously, no one video can capture everyone's favorite BAMF girls, so we'll throw it out to you to lengthen the list. Who's your favorite? Why? How do you think they'd interact with the other girls in the house? (via Gender Focus)

Dragon Tattoo Marketing Worried That Their Ads Are Alienating Women

And Now For Something Completely Different

Normally, when ad executives worry about women not responding to violence in movies, we scoff and write a post about how narrow minded they're being, and feel free to use our own community as an example of women who would totally go see a movie that began with "John Carter" even if it ended with "of Mars." Especially if it ended with "of Mars." But when the ad folk behind American adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo say they're concerned that their movie is too full of sexual violence to appeal to women, I'm gonna say: Yeah. You might be right.

10 Great Fictional Female Hackers

Power Grid

The secretly female computer whiz is such a common trope these days that I've almost come to expect it. Oooh, there's this super 1337 hacker who the whole male cast is in awe of, but they have no idea who they are and they need their help. Then, unexpectedly, the first time they meet, that hacker is totally a hot chick. Then, about half the time, there is sexual tension. But as tired as the reveal is, we have to admit that the trope itself has given us some of our favorite characters in movies, TV, and literature; obviously nerdy, intelligent girls who kick ass and sometimes get boys. It also goes hand in hand with our favorite anachronistic tech-films, but we'll get to that. Grab your 28.8k modem and join us for ten of our favorite lady hackers.

Here Is the Trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo [NSFW Video]

i'll just leave this here

This leaked late yesterday, and while it's unofficial (since it's clearly someone holding up a camera and recording it bootleg-style), this looks like it's going to be the red band trailer for David Fincher's adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. And it has the Trent Reznor/Karen O cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song" in it, which alone makes it worthwhile to watch. If this is the trailer, then this is a pretty badass trailer. (Contains one extremely quick NSFW moment.) (Ain't It Cool News)
