The Batman v Superman Trailer Has Been Release

In the wake of yesterday’s...anticlimactic teaser-of-the-teaser trailer debut, the actual first look at Batman v Superman has been released. The trailer does a pretty good job setting up the film’s premise, and gives us some hope for Ben Affleck as Batman — just listen to that classic one-liner at the end.

David Lynch Hates Graffiti

So this story kind of flew under our radar, but apparently back in March David Lynch spoke at a gallery exhibition in Australia that featured his work, and, among other things, made the casual and not at all overblown statement that “Graffiti to me has pretty much ruined the world.” To give Lynch the benefit of context, he was speaking in terms of the street art form sullying architecture and making it difficult to film in certain locations, but even then, this statement caused us to raise our eyebrows. What’s your opinion? Do you see graffiti as a valid artform or nothing more than vandalism?

Ryan Gosling Could Star In ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel

Deadline is reporting that Ryan Gosling, star of Drive, is in negotiations to star in the upcoming Blade Runner sequel. We’ve got mixed feelings about the idea of this classic and near-perfect film getting a sequel, but Gosling’s involvement, along with director Denis Villeneuve and Harrison Ford — reprising his role from the first film — all give us reason to be optimistic.

One of the best things about the Star Wars trailers? It doesn't use the same damn music as all the other trailers that are being released lately. If I hear that mechanical humming of doom one more time I am going to lose my shit :stare:

Also I couldn't hear the music of the Hasselhoff video cos my own laughter was too loud and just covered it entirely :B
