‘Green Room’ Red Band Trailer: This is the Punks Versus Neo-Nazis Thriller You’re Looking For

by Jacob Hall

One of the movies I am most excited for this year.

green room trailer

A24 is on a roll. A day after they release a new trailer for The Witch, an early frontrunner for one of the best films of 2016, they go ahead and reveal the first full trailer for Green Roomanother early frontrunner for one of the year’s top films. After making the festival rounds for much of last year, the latest film from director Jeremy Saulnier is a few months away from a theatrical release and this is something you’re going to want to see as soon as possible – you’ll kick yourself when it becomes one of your favorite movies if you wait too long to see it.

You can watch the new Green Room trailer below.

Green Room is built on an intimate, razor sharp premise: a struggling punk band agrees to take a gig at an isolated venue, learning too late that the operation is a cog in the local white supremacist machine. When they witness a murder, these young and thoroughly incompetent musicians lock themselves in the green room and participate in a brutal, bloody siege with deadly killers who will casually see them dead to hide the evidence. Oh, and Patrick Stewart (yes, that Patrick Stewart) is terrifying and magnificent as the skinhead lead villain of the film.

And while this may be a red band trailer, it’s worth noting that this preview really doesn’t even touch on how nasty this movie really gets. This is not an experience for the squeamish or the easily disturbed. Which means you really should drag your squeamish and easily disturbed friends to go see it.

Although Stewart grabs all of the headlines for his against-type casting, the ensemble is wonderful all-around, with Anton Yelchin doing fine work as the throughly outmatched protagonist and Imogen Poots solidifying herself as an actress to watch as a scene-stealing mystery woman. However, it’s Saulnier regular Macon Blair who gets the real standout performance, once again proving himself to be one of the most promising and unheralded actors out there right now.

Speaking of “promising and unheralded,” Green Room is Jeremy Saulnier’s third feature film and it’s about time we recognize that he’s the real deal. His Murder Party is a hilarious, black comedic delight and Blue Ruin is one of the most lean and mean and emotionally engaging thrillers in recent years. Green Room falls about halfway between the two of them: it’s a crowd-pleasing splatter flick and a morally complex thriller that forces you to confront its violence and the impact is has on its wide range of characters. Why Saulnier isn’t turning down major Hollywood gigs left and right is a mystery.

Here’s the official synopsis:

GREEN ROOM is a brilliantly crafted and wickedly fun horror-thriller starring Patrick Stewart as a diabolical club owner who squares off against an unsuspecting but resilient young punk band. Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon.  What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see.  Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise.  But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain’t Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown. Intense, emotional, and ingeniously twisted, Green Room is genre filmmaking at its best and most original. Saulnier continues to build his reputation as one of the most exciting and distinctive directors working today, with a movie that’s completely different from his previous, highly acclaimed Blue Ruin, but which is just as risk-taking and even more full of twists. The entire cast deliver first-rate performances, but Patrick Stewart gives a transformative and brilliantly  devious turn as Darcy-elegant yet lethal, droll yet terrifying, Stewart makes the film simply unforgettable.

Green Room opens in limited release on April 15, 2016 before going wide on April 29, 2016.

Great Job, Internet!: The Frinkiac search engine can find screencaps for that Simpsons quote

by Joe Blevins



In a flashback from the classic “Much Apu About Nothing” episode of The Simpsons, adenoidal genius Professor John Frink describes the awesome, UNIVAC-style computer he has created: “Sure, the Frinkiac 7 looks impressive–Don’t touch it!–But I predict that within 100 years, computers will be twice as powerful, 10,000 times larger, and so expensive only the five richest kings in Europe will own them.” What the professor could not have predicted is that, in 2016, there would be a Frinkiac search engine capable of matching Simpsons quotes with the appropriate screencaps, drawing from the first 15 seasons of the long-running animated series. Just type in, let’s say, “oyster Lucy” or “cider town” and let the Frinkiac do its thing.

For anyone wondering how this miracle of technology came about, Brian Barrett has a nice write-up about the Frinkiac over at Wired, and one of the search ...

Modern Communication

by Miss Cellania

Is it any wonder we hide from mass communication these days? The only people we hear from are those who want our money. Sifting through the mess to find anything worthwhile is a chore. I do get an occasional email or call from my kids, but it turns out that they want money, too. This is the latest comic from Sarah Andersen at Sarah’s Scribbles.

75 Science Fiction and Fantasy Films To Look Out For In 2016

by Germain Lussier and Charlie Jane Anders

Lots of good stuff.

Is there anyway the movies of 2016 could live up to 2015? 2015 had Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Terminator and The Avengers. 2016 has Batman, Superman, Deadpool and even more Star Wars. But that’s just the beginning of what’s a super exciting year at the movies.

Finally! A Back Hair Razor

by John Farrier

(Photo: baKBlade)

Unless you’re some sort of back hair artist, you’ll need to keep to your body lawn properly mowed. It’s a difficult and time consuming weekly chore for most men, made all the more difficult by small razors, a large surface area, and non-dislocated shoulders.

The baKBlade Bigmouth has a 4-inch blade fitted within a toothed comb that grabs and chops the hair. There’s a long handle so that there’s no spot on your body that you won’t be able to shave. The company says that you don’t need to use shaving cream. I guess that’s because it’s actually trimming the hair very close to your skin rather than bringing the blade into direct contact with it.

When Mutant Superpowers Manifest Themselves

by John Farrier

Pursuant the Mutant Registration Act, Marisa Arriaga of Cedar Hill, a suburb of Dallas, Texas, must submit to government supervision. She might have avoided that fate, had she not recorded her amazing abilities last June. She tells Fox 4 News that it’s just a bat trick, but I think that it’s clearly superpowers at work:

"I just started messing around,” said Arriaga. “I'm like, ‘I'm gonna make a bat trick video.’ So I got my sister out here and she was recording me.” […]

LaTisha Griffin, Arriaga’s softball coach, says Arriaga has crazy good skills.

"The finish is something she does all the time in the game, sending the ball a yard or going outfield with the ball with that complete swing through the zone, that's something she does all the time,” said Griffin.

These Pics Prove Some People Are Geniuses When They're Drunk

by Zeon Santos

There are some aspects of the human mind that will forever remain a mystery, and a few of those aspects pertain to how our brains perform when we're intoxicated.

(Image Link)

Someone who's sharp as a razor when sober may fall apart after only a few drinks, becoming a mindless, drooling husk of a human, and yet sometimes people who are normally a bit mindless become MacGyver when they're drunk.

These drunk geniuses know every hungover person needs food badly, every toilet needs arm rests and that bicycle of theirs could really use a handy pizza slice holder, for those long rides home from the bar.

The 100 Jokes That Shaped Modern Comedy

by Miss Cellania

This will take a while, but is so good.

Vulture has a mega-post with a timeline of comedy history. The title is a bit hyperbolic, because the 100 jokes are limited to the United States in the last 110 years. However, it does include visual gags, one-liners, full skits, movie scenes, standup, long-running jokes, and more, with commentary. There are tons of classics that will make you laugh no matter how many times you’ve heard them, and others you may vaguely remember and will be glad to see again.

“When I’m Good I’m Very Good … But When I’m Bad, I’m Better” -Mae West, 1933

“I was in love with a beautiful blonde once, dear. She drove me to drink. That's the one thing I’m so indebted to her for.” -W.C. Fields, 1941

“Welcome to the Academy Awards, or, as it’s known at my house, Passover.” -Bob Hope, 1968

“Dave’s not here.” -Tommy Chong, 1971

“These go to 11.” -Christopher Guest, 1984

There are a lot of videos. You can read through them in order, or use the timeline to jump around and find your favorites. Some are NSFW, but the description should indicate the subject before you play a sound clip or video. This list could keep you busy for days.

Bo & Matthew Sneak into a Movie Theatre

Two best friends fulfill “a lifelong dream” of sneaking into a movie theater as one large person. It’s not about saving the money on the ticket; it’s to see if they can get away with it. Of course they did. Movie theater employees aren’t paid enough to risk a confrontation, or even care.

Deadpool Releases Infographic; Ryan Reynolds Stars In Super Bowl Commercial

Deadpool and Ryan Reynolds seem to have a handle on this internet thing. Today’s entries in their continued campaign to rule online include a helpful infographic and a Hyundai commercial.

First up is that recently released infographic with Deadpool helpfully separating the heroes from the douchebags:

House-of-Cards-Frank-UnderwoodDeadline reports that Netflix has renewed House of Cards for a fifth season, ahead of the season four debut on March 4th.

But when the show returns for its 2017 year, creator Beau Willimon will not be coming back. The streaming outlet and production company MRC said in a statement that they “owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Beau Willimon for his strong narrative vision for House of Cards over the show’s first four seasons.” While the reasons for Willimon’s departure were unspecified, the statement continued, “The producers, cast and crew join us in wishing Beau the best in his next creative adventure.”

His replacement has not yet been named.

Star Kevin Spacey and pilot director David Fincher also serve as executive producers on the series, itself based on a 1990 BBC miniseries and the Michael Dobbs novel by the same name.

Why Buying Craft Beer in Big Bottles Probably Isn't a Good Idea Right Now

Fourteen Prank Pics To Get You In The Mood For Some Trickery

by Zeon Santos


(Image Link)

Prankery can turn a dreary winters day into a hysterical chuckle fest full of sneaky tricks and impish laughter, and although the target of the prank may not appreciate the joke everybody else usually gets a good laugh out of it all.

(Image Link)

However,  it's important to keep your pranking within acceptable boundaries, to avoid causing bodily harm or emotional pain, but that still leaves lots of room to mess with people's minds.

(Image Link)

And if you simply can't find a new way to prank 'em all you can always go with a tried and true standard in the world of pranking- attaching an air horn to a toilet seat.

Of course, you may want to conceal the air horn a bit better than this person did because you know what they say about paybacks...

Jakub Wejher was a nobleman who led Polish armies in several wars throughout the Seventeenth Century. He founded the town of Wejherowo, which is now graced with a statue to honor him.

When covered with snow, his long hair looks like Darth Vader's helmet and his cape, shaded in the night, looks like that of the Sith lord.

A few weeks ago, though, Count Jakub had not yet given in to the dark side.

Archer Quotes Work Really Well With James Bond Stills

by Zeon Santos

Sterling Archer can't even dream of being as good as James Bond at the secret agenting game, but that doesn't stop him from trying to channel that 007 vibe every day of his life.

And while Bond has definitely made some bold and memorable statements in his films, Archer has a way with words that tends to make people say "Wow, did he really just say that?".

But pretend like Archer's words are being said by James Bond and you've shaken up those fictional espionage films we all know and love in comedic style.

Basically it turns Bond into a doubly drunk, somehow slightly less lecherous, more conceited and a whole lot more idiotic version of 007...with a butler, and a lemur named Reggie.

Great Job, Internet!: Animated short pits Force Awakens characters against their Star Wars equivalents

by Caroline Siede

Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: Star Wars: The Force Awakens is really similar to the original 1977 Star Wars. Crazy, right? Naturally, the hard-to-miss similarities between the two films have been a frequent topic of conversation since TFA’s release. So while Dorkly’s new animated short comparing the two films isn’t exactly timely, it does hit the nail on the head.

Dorkly highlights just how identical the two films are by pairing new characters with their previous equivalents. Luke and Rey banter about their totally different desert home worlds (Jakku only has one sun!), Han and Obi Wan discuss the downsides of mentorship, and Boba Fett and Captain Phasma come to the realization that they both kind of suck. Presumably Dorkly is saving the Yoda/Maz Kanata meeting for its 2017 Empire Strikes Back/Episode VIII mash-up, although the fact that this video doesn ...

Great Scott! New DeLoreans Will Be Manufactured in 2017, Flux Capacitor Not Included

by Ethan Anderton

2017 DeLorean

If last year’s celebration of Back to the Future and Back to the Future Part II wasn’t enough time travel adventure for you, then 2017 might have something you’ll enjoy, at least if you have between $80,000 and $100,000 lying around.

Today The DeLorean Motor Company announced that they will be building new DMC-12 DeLorean automobiles, the car used for the time machine in Robert Zemeckis‘ sci-fi classic. The new cars will begin being sold in 2017 thanks to a new law that exempts small volume car manufacturers from the safety requirements applied to most new car makers. Find out why new DeLoreans are allowed to be made after the jump.

The Verge reports that a new law allows the production of replica vehicles that are made to resemble cars that were manufactured at least 25 years ago, and the DeLorean qualifies. Under the new legislation the company will be able to sell as many as 325 replicas each year, however, DeLorean will only make that number over a span of five years.

This is pretty big news for Back to the Future fans who have always wanted their own DeLorean but couldn’t afford to buy one of the very limited available in the market. According to The DeLorean Museum, only about 6,500 DeLoreans are believed to be in existence today, which isn’t bad considering that only 9,200 were created between 1981 and 1982.

And even though these will be replicas of the original DeLorean, built with millions of factory parts (and some that have been recreated from the original blueprints), the 2017 DeLorean will have a more powerful engine. A V6 engine will be put in the new replicas giving the car between 350 and 370 horsepower, which is much more than the original 130 horsepower engine, making the car much faster than it was in the 1980s.

Other changes include larger wheels and tires, modern breaks and modern amenities like heated seats, GPS navigation and bluetooth phone connectivity. But the aesthetic of the exterior will be “virtually unchanged” according to DeLorean vice president James Espy (via Maxim).

Here’s hoping that DeLorean will come out with some kind of special edition that is modeled directly after the time machine from Back to the Future. At the very least, one should come with a flux capacitor or a Mr. Fusion, especially since the car will cost so much money. Do any of you out there have the money to drop on one of these fine cars?

Newswire: Triumph The Insult Comic Dog to host presidential election special for Hulu

by Sam Barsanti

Love Triumph.

So far, this whole presidential election thing has been a deeply thoughtful, refined, and all-around classy affair, with none of the candidates on either side of the aisle stooping to personal attacks or outlandish, blatantly racist statements. And since most professional comedians are struggling to find anything funny to say about Trump, Clinton, Sanders, Cruz, and whoever the other people are, Hulu and Funny Or Die have enlisted the help of someone who can find something to laugh about in these campaigns. Or, at the very least, he can probably find something—ahem—to poop on.

Yes, Triumph The Insult Comic Dog will be hosting an election special for Hulu, and Splitsider says it will premiere at some point next month.
