I ship it.
That’s not an unusual Harry Potter fanfiction crack pairing coming to life—it’s a never-before-seen behind the scenes image of Daniel Radcliffe and Helena Bonham Carter on the set of The Deathly Hallows. Go check out Entertainment Weekly for more exclusive pictures spanning the franchise’s entire history.
- Remember how we told you about that Phantom of the Opera TV show that ABC is working on? Well, keep your hand at the level of your eye, because according to Jezebel there are actually two Phantom shows coming to television. We’re past the point of no return, now.
- You know how Moana, Disney’s movie about a Polynesian princess, recently got an official release date? Well, so does their Fox and Bunny-starring buddy comedy Zootopia as well. (via Screenrant)
Allow me to paraphrase this video that Neil Gaiman made for the Sixteen Legs Project with the help of Bookend Trust: “Hi, I’m Neil Gaiman. I actually used to be afraid of spiders. Then I went deep into a scary dark cave, learned about some legitimate reasons to be terrified of spiders, and now think they’re pretty neat. Donate today!” But seriously, you should check out the project—it looks pretty rad.
- Somebody recently sold the domain name Ebola.com for $200,000. That’s a lot of money to hand over for a website that I hope is just going to say “YOU DON’T HAVE EBOLA, TRY DONATING MONEY TO SOMEWHERE IN WEST AFRICA INSTEAD OF FREAKING OUT ABOUT NURSES” in flashing letters. (The Verge)
- It appears that physicists have created a reversible tractor beam. Oh man! Can we go find life another planet so we can start abducting them now? (via CNET)
Now call me crazy, but back in my day sleeping bags didn’t have arms and legs! (Neither did blankets, either, but that’s not the point) Still, I bet you could find a use for these Marvel costume-inspired “bags.” Saving the world, for one. (via Fashionably Geek)
