Banksy Releases Dismaland Trailer; Plus: Watch the Short Film Selections

by Angie Han


Disneyland is billed as “The Happiest Place on Earth,” but happy isn’t for everyone. Some people find all that relentless cheer to be kinda creepy, or simply prefer to mix things up with more offbeat, macabre entertainments. For all those people, there’s Banksy‘s Dismaland.

Touted as “the UK’s most disappointing new visitor attraction,” Dismaland showcases work by Damien Hurst, Jenny Holzer, and other artists (in addition to Bansky himself). It also features an hourlong program of short films by Ze Frank, Kristen Lepore, and many more. Get the Banksy Dismaland preview, and watch all 24 shorts, after the jump.

Check out a preview of the Banksy Dismaland theme park:

You can also see many photos here. Located inside a defunct water park formerly known as the Tropicana, in the English resort town of Western-super-Mare, Dismaland highlights work from 59 artists and 22 directors and animators. All in all, it adds up to a gloomy, dystopian take on bright, shiny theme parks. The installation runs through September 27; get tickets at the Dismaland website.

Besides all the eerie art pieces — which include a decrepit Cinderella castle, a glitchy Little Mermaid statue, and a Grim Reaper on a bumper car — you can also enjoy an hourlong cinema program curated by Christopher Jobson. Or, if you can’t actually make it to Dismaland, you can just enjoy the short films below.

(Note: Some of the films will play in slightly different form at Dismaland. Details here.)

Kurt Sutter Planning ‘Sons of Anarchy’ Spinoff About the Mayans

by Angie Han

Sons of Anarchy

Sons of Anarchy ended its run at FX back in December, but the Mayans may yet ride again. Series creator Kurt Sutter is reportedly working on a Sons of Anarchy spinoff for FX, which would focus on SAMCRO’s Hispanic rivals. More details on the possible Sons of Anarchy spinoff after the jump. 

Variety reveals Sutter has just secured a development deal with FX for the new show. Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions will produce. Not much has been revealed about the plot of the show, other than that it’ll take place in the Northern California motorcycle club scene, with a particular focus on the Mayans.

The Mayans crew tangled with SAMCRO on and off across seven seasons on Sons of Anarchy. The gang ran two heroin factories near Oakland and were involved in prostitution as well. Prominent members included Marcus Alvarez (Emilio Rivera), president of the Mayans’ Oakland chapter — but again, we don’t know if he or any of the other established characters might return for the spinoff.

That Sutter and FX are eyeing a Sons of Anarchy spinoff doesn’t come as a huge surprise. The motorcycle drama remains the most popular series in the network’s history, with 9.2 million viewers tuning in for last year’s series finale. And Sutter has long talked up the possibility of doing a Sons of Anarchy prequel, though it remains unclear in what time period the new show will be set.

The news comes just as competitor AMC’s Walking Dead spinoff Fear the Walking Dead had the biggest series premiere in cable TV history. Back in the spring, AMC also extended its Breaking Bad franchise with Better Call Saul, which concluded its first season as the year’s top new cable series.

Sutter is currently seeking a showrunner to take over day-to-day duties on the Sons of Anarchy spinoff, as he remains focused on his other FX show The Bastard Executioner. The medieval drama starring Lee Jones, Stephen Moyer, and Katey Sagal premieres Tuesday, September 15 on the network.

VOTD: Hi, I’m a Marvel… and I’m a DC: Age of Ultron and Batman v Superman

by Angie Han

I'm a Marvel and I'm a DC

It’s been a while since we got one of those “Hi, I’m a Marvel… and I’m a DC” videos, but creator ItsJustSomeRandomGuy hasn’t lost his touch, as evidenced by his latest video.

He’s got a lot to work with in the new installment, with both mega-franchises preparing to square off at the box office next year — Marvel with Captain America: Civil War, DC with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And in between all the sniping, he even manages to get in a solid Fantastic Four dig. Watch it after the jump.

Truth be told, the whole concept behind these videos is a bit outdated by now. Who even remembers the original “Get a Mac” ad campaign that kicked off the first wave of parodies?

But it hardly matters when the jokes are this on point. Of course Captain America and Superman would be too busy making pleasant conversation to engage in Iron Man and Batman’s verbal showdown. Of course Hawkeye would trash Quicksilver — only to get smacked down by the Flash. And seriously, what is up with all the superhero infighting next year, anyway?

Removing Wolverine From The Australian NRL

by Rich Johnston

imageLast year, the Australian National Ruby League issued some of the team shirts in Marvel Super Heroes variants. Thr, Wolverine, Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk.

Well they are doing it again this year. But dropping Wolverine…


And adding Daredevil, Spider-Man and War Machine.

Bleeding Cool has been commenting for some time on the reduction of X-Men and Fantastif Four licenses, as Marvel seemingly seems to reduce the prominence of such licences as part of their ongoing and fractious negotiation with Fox Studios who own the film rights to the characters (but not merchandise rights based on the comic or animated properties). Looks like Manley Rugby fans will have to get used to Daredevil instead….

South Park Facts That You’ll Want Tell at Parties

by Nat B

You might not believe this but South Park is in its 18th season.  Yes, 18 seasons.   Want some perspective?  The show began airing before Kylie Jenner was even born.  I mean I hate to use that analogy but it’s pretty darned good don’t you think?  And for 18 seasons Matt Stone and Trey Parker have been making us laugh our asses off.   Even more amazing is the fact they these guys don’t seem to be slowing down at all. So what have we learned after nearly 20 years?  Well, we’ve learned plenty.  But well bet you a piece of Chef’s

"How does the NFL’s Roger Goodell stay in power? By acting like a dictator."

by (John)
First, a key lesson from the autocrat’s playbook is this: After you take power, eliminate the powerful people who helped get you there. They know your weaknesses and the skeletons in your closet. For Goodell, no one fits that description like Kraft, who owns the Patriots.
Goodell has isolated Kraft among the group of NFL owners, significantly reducing his influence.

It’s Business Time: A ‘Flight of the Conchords’ Movie Is in the Works

by Ethan Anderton


Flight of the Conchords movie

Hot on the heels of news that a sequel to the vampire mockumentary comedy What We Do in the Shadows is in the works, it seems Jemaine Clement has another big screen project in the works, and it’s one that will make his longtime fans very happy.

In a new interview, Clement revealed that he just recently sat down with Bret McKenzie to begin writing a Flight of the Conchords movie, featuring their comedic folk music duo of the same name, which has already had a hit HBO show that lasted two seasons back in 2007 and 2008.

Word from Clement about the Flight of the Conchords movie comes from an interview with IndieWire where he says:

We have actually started writing one. Who knows if it will ever be made, we’ve written some notes for some different film ideas. We’re not down to the stage where we’re going, “The film is going to be like this,” it could be this, this, this, this, this.

That’s no guarantee that we’ll actually get to see the movie happen, but it’s heartening to know that they’re working on getting a story together so that if they were given the opportunity, the Flight of the Conchords could return on the big screen. Just thinking about some kind of road trip comedy involving Flight of the Conchords brings a huge smile to my face, so I hope it happens. And surely many fans agree, since there’s quite a few of them who feel that the HBO show ended far too early.

While the rest of the world traditionally only keeps their shows around for a much shorter amount of time, with far fewer episodes in each season, than the United States, having only two seasons for a total of 22 episodes just wasn’t enough for fans of Flight of the Conchords, myself included. But Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie wanted to go out on their own terms while the show was still good and pursue other things.

But if this movie comes together, there’s only one thing to say:

And for those who may not want to wait for a Flight of the Conchords movie to get their New Zealand folk fix, Clement has more good news. He recently told Consequence of Sound that a reunion tour is also being planned for 2016:

“We were planning on doing it this summer, but then I ended up doing [Steven Spielberg’s] The BFG instead. So it’s my fault we didn’t do it this time. But we are hoping to announce a tour. We’ll announce it before the end of the year, hopefully, and then some time next year get on the road … after we get some new guitar strings and that sort of thing.”

I was lucky enough to see Flight of the Conchords when they were part of The Oddball Comedy Tour a couple years ago, and it was an absolute treat to see the duo on stage playing their jams. No, I wasn’t crying out of happiness, it was just raining on my face.

Clearly a Flight of the Conchords movie is probably a long ways off, especially since they just started writing it, but we’ll keep you posted if anymore good news surfaces about its development.

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Red Band Trailer

by Peter Sciretta

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Red Band Trailer
Paramount Pictures has released a red band (i.e. uncensored or R-rated) trailer for their upcoming Halloween release Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse. Directed by Christopher Landon, the writer of the Paranormal Activity sequels and director of Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, comes a modern Amblin-esque story of a bunch of Boy Scouts who go on an overnight adventure on the same night of the zombie apocalypse. Watch the Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse red band trailer now embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse Trailer

When I first heard about this script, co-written by College Road Trip screenwriters Emi Mochizuki and Carrie Lee Wilson, I was expecting something fun but a lot less graphic.  The movie seems like its going for a Superbad meets The Lost Boys kind of feel. The premise seems fun, and very different than most of the other Zombie films out there.  And it seems like Zombieland 2 isn’t going to happen any time soon.

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse stars Tye Sheridan, David Koechner, Cloris Leachman, Halston Sage, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, and Sarah Dumont. The film features music from Dillon Francis (Money Sucks, Friends Rule and This Mixtape Is Fire). Here is the film’s official synopsis:

Three scouts and lifelong friends join forces with one badass cocktail waitress to become the world’s most unlikely team of heroes. When their peaceful town is ravaged by a zombie invasion, they’ll fight for the badge of a lifetime and put their scouting skills to the test to save mankind from the undead.

Scouts Guide To The Zombie Apocalypse, directed by Christopher Landon will hit theaters on October 30th 2015. You can also check out some boy scout merit bagde-themed clips that were previously released from the film:

‘The Final Girls’ Trailer: Taissa Farmiga and Nina Dobrev Try to Survive a Slasher Film

by Russ Fischer

This looks phenomenal.

The Final girls trailer

I went into The Final Girls at SXSW this year having no idea what to expect from the horror/comedy Todd Strauss-Schulson. What I saw was a very funny comedy that has a good take on the tropes of slasher films, but also a movie that has a really effective core about dealing with difficult family trauma. The cast is led by Taissa Farmiga, Malin Akerman, and Nina Dobrev, with Alexander Ludwig, Alia Shawkat, Thomas Middleditch, and Adam Devine in major roles. Check out The Final Girls trailer here.

We’ll have an interview soon with Todd Strauss-Schulson about how he put the film together, but in the meantime this trailer gives you a good look at the blend of horror and comedy; what it doesn’t show much of is the character drama behind it all, which is perhaps the most effective part of the film. There are hints, clearly, but that’s where the real pleasure of the film lies.

The Final Girls opens on October 9. Trailer via AppleJoshua John Miller and M.A. Fortin scripted. The cast also features Angela Trimbur, Chloe Bridges, and Tory N. Thompson.

When Max (Taissa Farmiga) and her friends reluctantly attend a screening of “Camp Bloodbath,” an infamous ‘80s cult horror film that starred Max’s late mother (Malin Akerman), they are accidentally sucked into the silver screen. They soon realize they’re trapped inside the movie and must team up with the horny, regan-era idiot “Camp Bloodbath” counselors — including Max’s mom as the shy scream queen — to battle the film’s machete-wielding killer, Billy Murphy. Face to face with her mother for the first time in years, Max has a second chance not only to see her, but to save her, and with the help of her friends, get back home before Billy kills them all. Also starring Adam DeVine, Thomas Middleditch, Alia Shawkat, Angela Trimbur, with Alexander Ludwig and Nina Dobrev.

What Does J.K. Rowling Think About the Dumbledore as Death Theory?

by Ethan Anderton

Dumbledore as death theory

A little over a couple weeks ago, a new fan theory about one of the major characters in the Harry Potter series was taking the internet by storm. And it finally made its way to the character’s creator, author J.K. Rowling.

More often than not, Rowling has to debunk wild theories or answer endless questions about whether or not she’ll write an eighth Harry Potter book, but this time she’s fully on board with the fan proposal that posits a Dumbledore as death theory, or at least as a representation of the figure as tied to the story of The Three Brothers.

If you’re playing catch-up on the theory, first refresh your memory by watching the story of The Three Brothers as told in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 with cool shadow animation:

There’s an old fan theory that has proposed that in this story, Lord Voldemort represents the first brother who asks for a wand more powerful than any other, which ends up being his downfall. Severus Snape represents the second brother, who asks for a tool to resurrect loved ones, his memories still clung to Lily Potter.

Finally, here’s the key part of the old theory: Harry Potter represents the third brother, described in the fable as a humble man who only asks to live a long happy life without the fear of Death. In the fable, Death bestows an invisible cloak upon the third brother, which protects him (but not his brothers) from his end. Harry Potter is the Boy Who Lived by cheating death. It makes perfect sense and fans have loved this theory.

Inspired by this theory, Tumblr user and Harry Potter fan harryjxmespotter believes that if we accept this association between the characters and the story of The Three Brothers, then that means Albus Dumbledore represents death. After all, in the story we hear Death searched for the third brother for years, and was only able to find him after the brother gave his cloak of invisibility to his son. When Death shows up, the third brother greets him as an old friend and went off with him gladly, departing this life, as equals.

In the movie, when Harry Potter has the killing curse shot at him, he enters the heavenly version of King’s Cross Station, and greets Dumbledore as an old friend. But instead of them both departing this life, Harry shakes the legend up by going back and living his life, cheating death one last time.

It’s a sound theory that fans have been going crazy over online, and now J.K. Rowling herself has given a seal of approval through her own Twitter profile:

Dumbledore as death. It's a beautiful theory and it fits.

— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) August 21, 2015

This likely won’t be the last fan theory that surfaces online, but it’s definitely one of the better ones that we’ve heard. It must be nice to have it recognized by J.K. Rowling herself. Now if we could just get her to get cracking on an Order of the Phoenix prequel series, that would be great too.

‘Kill Your Friends’ Trailer: Nicholas Hoult Will Kill for Platinum Glory

by Ethan Anderton

Kill Your Friends trailer

This weekend brings Zac Efron’s aspiring DJ movie We Are Your Friends, but the United Kingdom has a literally more cutthroat story set in the music industry.

Kill Your Friends is a new dark comedic thriller starring Nicholas Hoult and based on John Niven‘s best-selling novel of the same name, and the first Kill Your Friends trailer has just arrived before the film’s debut at the Toronto International Film Festival. But beware, the trailer is a little NSFW with some brief glimpses of nudity and also F-bombs.

Here’s the trailer for Kill Your Friends from Studio Canal UK:

To me this feels like a blend of Trainspotting, Entourage and American Psycho, and it looks like a very promising blend of dark comedy and bloody thrills. Nicholas Hoult is showing us a performance that we haven’t seen him deliver before, not quite as crazy as his War Boy character Nux from Mad Max: Fury Road, though very much departed from his more reserved, mutant scientist character Hank McCoy (aka Beast) in the X-Men franchise.

The rest of the movie has a solid cast from across the pond that includes new late night host James Corden, Georgia King, Craig Roberts, Tom Riley, Joseph Mawle, Edward Hogg, Ed Skrein, Moritz Bleibtreu, and Rosanna Arquette. At the helm is Owen Harris, a television director making his feature film debut, directing the film from a screenplay written by the source material’s author John Nivens, so this should be a rather loyal adaptation of the book.

Here’s a couple posters for the movie debuting at TIFF next month:

killyourfriends-poster2 killyourfriends-poster1

London, 1997; the British music industry is on a winning streak. Britpop bands Blur, Oasis, Radiohead rule the airwaves and Cool Britannia is in full swing. 27-year-old hit chasing A&R man Steven Stelfox (Nicholas Hoult) is slashing and burning his way through the music business, a world where ‘no one knows anything’ and where careers are made and broken by chance and the fickle tastes of the general public – “Yeah, those animals”.

Fueled by greed, ambition and inhuman quantities of drugs, Stelfox searches for his next hit record amid a relentless orgy of self-gratification. Created by an industry that demands success at any price, as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, Stelfox takes the concept of ‘killer tunes’ to a murderous new level in a desperate attempt to salvage his career.

Kill Your Friends is a dark, satirical and hysterically funny evisceration of the Nineties music business. A time and place populated by frauds, charlatans and bluffers; where ambition is a higher currency than talent, and where it seems anything can be achieved – as long as you want it badly enough.

Kill Your Friends arrives in the United Kingdom on November 6th but has no US release date yet.

"The Day Someone Signed Me Up For An Ashley Madison Account (That Day Would Be Yesterday)"

by (John)


Yesterday afternoon, I got a message telling me "Welcome to Day 1 of your Ashley Madison Experience." Someone using my email signed me up, using the rather creative account name "masnicator." I'm kinda surprised that Ashley Madison is still even allowing online signups (let alone not using an email verification system, or for that matter even keeping the site up at all). But, perhaps even more ridiculous is that in the "welcome" email, it highlights how the service is "100% Secure."

Perhaps even more amusing is that just three minutes after this fake registration, I also got a fake message from someone.

Watch Andrei Arlovski's epic first-round TKO of Travis Browne at UFC 187

by MMAjunkie Staff

Filed under: News, UFC, Videos

The UFC has a pair of epic career resurgences going on in the heavyweight division right now, and we’ll soon see what happens when they collide.

Former heavyweight champions Andrei Arlovski (24-10 MMA, 13-4 UFC) and Frank Mir (18-9 MMA, 16-9 UFC) meet in the co-main event of UFC 191 next month.

In 2011, it looked like Arlovski’s career was dead in the water. He was on a four-fight skid, including first-round knockout losses to Fedor Emelianenko, Brett Rogers and Sergei Kharitonov in the Affliction and Strikeforce promotions. But he won six of his next seven fights and got another shot with the UFC, returning in 2014 more than six years after he left.

Mir’s rough patch was much more recent. He dropped four straight between 2012 and 2014, including TKO losses to Junior Dos Santos and Josh Barnett and decision losses to Daniel Cormier and Alistair Overeem.

Arlovski now has five straight wins and victories in nine of his past 10, including three straight since coming back to the UFC. Included in that mix was an upset of Antonio Silva in their rematch in Brazil in September – a bonus-winning first-round knockout – and a first-round TKO of Travis Browne that won “Fight of the Night” honors in May at UFC 187.

And Mir has back-to-back wins in 2015, also both in a big way. In February, he won a bonus when he knocked out Silva in Brazil. And just a month ago, he knocked out Todd Duffee in their UFC Fight Night 71 main event to win another $50,000 bonus.

In the video above, check out Arlovski’s thrilling knockout of Browne at UFC 187 – a back-and-forth battle that saw each fighter put the other in trouble in the first round before Arlovski finally put the Hawaiian away.

Then don’t miss Arlovski vs. Mir in the UFC 191 co-main event, which takes place Sept. 5 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

"Hetfield" Comics Turn Metallica Frontman Into Lasagna-Loving Cat

Oh Hetfield, let my heart go. The hero of my day is whoever decided to turn Garfield and Jon into James and Lars for an online comic strip, particularly because they chose to mock James' goofy blond beard (seriously - the handlebar 'stache is all that is, ever, ever was, will be, ever for Hetfield facial hair. And yeah, nothing else matters). If you hate Mondays, but love knowing mockery of Metallica, take that pain of yours over to the Hetfield the Cat Tumblr . It's like sweet amber for the soul. The humor may not kill 'em all, but compared to the forgettable jokes in the real Garfield, the memory remains. h/t Jim Dandeneau

Explaining Global Economic Systems With Two Cows

by Zeon Santos

Understanding the differences between various economic and political systems can be quite difficult, or it can all be explained with a little help from two cows.

Newstalk ZB came up with some fun new versions of the old "You have two cows" satirical bit that makes it so easy to understand things like modern corporate economics that even a moo-ron can figure it out!

Of course, this Ecownomic method is merely meant to steer us in the right direction in a no bull kinda way, so it doesn’t really dig in to the meat and potatoes of each system.

But it's so universal that it can even be used to explain something as esoteric as Surrealism:

That explanation is easier to digest than a steak dinner and a glass of milk!

‘Vinyl’ Trailer: The Unrepentant ’70s Rock Excess of Martin Scorsese’s New HBO Series

by Russ Fischer

I like it.

Vinyl Trailer

Here’s the first legit footage from Vinyl, which is the new HBO show from Martin ScorseseMick Jagger, and Terence Winter. And while we really liked the brief mood-setting teaser released earlier this week, this is something else altogether. Imagine the energy and approach Scorsese took to The Wolf of Wall Street, applied to a story set in the office of a struggling late ’70s record label and the stages and back rooms of the ’70s music scene.

Bobby Cannavale plays the president of the label American Century Records, and the first Vinyl trailer uses him as a way to introduce the first footage. 

This is kinda red-band thanks to a little bit of bad language.

Trailer via HBO.

To refresh, the show features Mick Jagger’s son James Jagger plays a punk frontman named Kip Stevens in the series — who looks more New York Dolls punk than, say, Ramones punk — and the series also features Ray Romano as Cannavale’s friend and partner; Olivia Wilde as his wife; Andrew “Dice” Clay as the owner of a radio franchise; and P.J. Byrne, Joe Caniano, Max Casella, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, and Paul Ben-Victor.

Vinyl premieres in 2016.

From Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, this new 10-episode drama series is set in 1970s New York. A ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path.
