Adam Savage Builds the HELLBOY Sword From the Comics

I knew you were suffering from Mythbusters withdrawals, so I managed to dig this up for a quick fix. Adam Savage is a big Hellboy fan apparently! He doesn’t just like the films either, as the video might suggest. In this longish (about 30 minutes) video Savage recreates his favorite weapon of Hellboy’s, a sword. Not as fancy as the gun, but he already has one of those! The final result is pretty damn impressive! Check it out below. 

Details on a Twisted GOONIES-Inspired Reboot of A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET

Now this is a crazy version of a Nightmare on Elm Street reboot that I could get behind! Before the disappointing 2010 reboot happened with Jackie Earle Haley and Rooney Mara, French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo were developing a version of the film that sounds like it would have been awesome. Unfortunately, New Line Cinema and Platinum Dunes went with director Samuel Bayer for some reason, and we all know how that turned out.

Bloody-Disgusting recently interviewed Maury and Bustillo and talked to them about their vision for Freddy Krueger that never happened. Their pitch is explained as a Goonies-inspired take on the franchise involving kids being terrorized by Freddy instead of teenagers.

“Our idea of a good remake is to have a new vision on the same thematics. Here it was to really use the fact that Krueger is a child molester. So the idea was to have a twisted version of the Goonies with a bunch of kids being stalked. We thought it would have been great for a remake to switch the teenagers of the original with real kids. Beside childhood is the moment in life when you are truly and deeply frightened by nightmares, when you’re not able to see the difference between reality and dreams…”

That would have been an incredibly demented movie. Can you imagine the terrifying monster of Freddy Krueger haunting and killing a group of little kids? It’s such an insane idea! But it’s a really great idea as well. That’s a film that would push the boundaries and make people uncomfortable. Killing adults playing teenagers is fine, but innocent children? That’s jacked up, and that’s why I think it would have worked so well as a horror film. It would have had a shocking impact! But having that Goonies-style adventure vibe would have made it incredibly fun!

Too bad the studio and the production companies wouldn’t go for it. I imagine it was just too dark for them. Maury and Bustillo have directed a Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel called Leatherface that will be released later this year. According to the report, it’s “absolutely insane!”

Brother Teaches His Little Sister About STAR WARS

Super cute alert, these kids are adorable! This big brother is teaching his little sister about the world of Star Wars by reading a children’s book to her. It’s actually kind of surprising how he gives his description of each character! He goes beyond the book in some cases and starts giving some analysis in a way only a little geek can! I especially like how he breaks down Yoda’s speech pattern. Congrats, Will Macky! You must be a proud dad.

“Deciding to blow off some steam, Barry and the team head out for a night on the town only to encounter an unexpected speedster who is up to no good. Iris is challenged by an assignment from her new boss (guest star Tone Bell), and is surprised when friction turns to flirtation.”

Ben Affleck Discusses the Legacy He Wants to Leave as Batman

In about two weeks, Ben Affleck debuts as Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. In a recent interview with EW, the actor talked about his character and the legacy he hopes to leave  as the caped crusader. When asked what his contribution would be to the Dark Knight’s legacy, Affleck said:

“Oh gosh, I wouldn’t. I would leave that for other people to say. What I wanted was to create a Batman that was sort of at the end of his rope physically and psychologically and emotionally, a guy who was beaten down by the world, a guy who was a little bit more of a slugger, who has more gray in his hair, and who was questioning whether the whole journey that he lived as Batman was in fact even worth it, given that he was not superhero, but now had to face a super-being, which none of the other Batmans had to confront in the movie world. It’s an interesting thing to combine, because in the Nolan Batmans, which are the defining Batmans — so magnificent — there are no other superheroes. It’s just this guy. He never has to reconcile who he is with this idea that there are all these other people who can do these supernatural things. Having to confront that and having to deal with that is my contribution to the character.”

When Affleck was first cast in the role a lot of fans were pissed off, but I thought it was an unexpected but great choice. From what we’ve seen of him in the role of the character so far, it seems like he’s going to pull it off awesomely! Will fanboys and fangirls forgive him for Daredevil? Well, that’s something we’ll just have to wait and see. He also spoke about Batman and where he is projecting his anger in the film:

“Yeah, he’s projecting in some ways his own sense of failure, his own sense of disillusionment, his own cynicism onto Superman, having at one point been certainly much more idealistic about what he was doing. He’s also always been kind of a dark guy. You can’t go out at night and avenge crime the way he does, obviously, without a darker view of the world, but you can see that this probably contributes in some degree to the greater cycle of violence. And that doesn’t put an end to crime. There’s a line about weeds just cropping up and criminals are like weeds, you just pull more of them and they grow back. He’s very disillusioned and very bitter.”

He spoke about the devastating effect that the death of Robin had on Gotham City’s hero:

“He’s bitterly disappointed in the past that he’s lost this guy who fought by his side. That character’s death must have been devastating to him, and he’s suffered. We get the sense that he’s suffered a lot of devastating losses before this movie even starts.”

We’ve previously learned that the stories of these tragic loses, like Robin, might be included in the Batman solo film that Affleck is currently helping develop. Affleck was also asked about Wonder Woman and how the character plays into Batman’s thinking. This was his reply:

“It inspires in him the idea that well, if there’s one of these kinds of people out there, then maybe there are in fact more. If there are more, then maybe that’s hopeful and also terrifying to him, because then they could make humans even more powerless — or they could serve on our side. You’ve got to remember that Batman is the world’s greatest detective, and if he suspects that there may be more, and if he suspects in particular that Diana may be somebody special, he gets inspired.”

Batman v Superman is going to be the start of something really exciting and epic. I’m rooting for Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. to succeed. I really want to see these films be awesome and spectacular in every way. It’s going to be cool to see how far they take these characters.

“Robot Chicken is back, and man, oh man, is it tasty!”

Adult Swim has released a promo trailer for Robot Chicken season eight, and it announces that the hilarious series will be back in action on March 13th! This is one of those series that always, without fail, has me busting up with laughter.

Robot Chicken is Adult Swim’s long-running stop-motion animated homunculus of a sketch show. Witness sex, violence and 80’s toy references collide through fan-favorite characters like the Humping Robot and the beloved Robot Chicken Nerd as creators Seth Green and Matthew Seinreich are joined by an unparalleled roster of celebrity voices to skewer pop culture in this balls-to-the-wall comedy.

Now enjoy the trailer! I’ve also included a few things that have been posted on Robot Chicken’s Instagram page during the past few weeks.
