This weekend was Wizard World comic con here in Chicago. I spent the day there today since I wasn’t able to yesterday and took some photos. Saturday is definitely the day to go for the most events and cosplay photo ops but today was pretty fun and I got some deals on comics and toys for the collection. Enjoy our small photo gallery!
One of our favorite artists, Banksy, just opened his Dismaland bemusement park/art installation in England. Mashable put this together this great story showing some of the artwork at the park. Some of the best work comments on our current worldwide culture of social media, papparazzi, and consumerism. Among the artists showing are Damien Hurst and Jenny Holzer. There are DJ’s late night and on September 25th, Massive Attack will be performing live. Wish we could be there to document the show and experience everything Dismaland has to offer. Till then, enjoy this excellent video by Mashable and click the link here to see the full story on their site.
Lana Del Rey premiered a new video this week for her new song “High By The Beach”. It’s from her upcoming album Honeymoon that releases on September 18th, which is about a month away and we can’ wait! Check out the new video and if you know what video game inspired the giant gun at the end, let us know in the comments! Okay, that can’t be a real gun so we’re guessing it’s a custom made prop or something.
Here’s a fun video I made this weekend starring myself washing dishes. It’s shot from the sink POV on my GoPro. The 3D model came from Sketchup and text animation from Rocketstock.
Just released! Finally we see the new Deadpool trailer that may or may not have leaked at San Diego Comic Con a few weeks ago. It’s good. A funny super hero movie doesn’t really sound like a good idea but this one seems to have some adult situations, language and violence. Those are three of our favorite things here at Panic Films HQ! NSFW FTW! Enjoy the trailer, motherfuckers!
This awesome Mad Max/Star Wars Mashup has been going around Facebook today. At first I wasn’t sure it would be good but It’s very well done, so I thought I’d share. What a day! What a lovely day!!
So here’s part 2 of what made us the most excited from the rest of the weekend at San Diego Comic Con.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This looks fantastic. It’s nice to have a new Batman story and I think this will be a good set up for the new DC Comics universe. Also nice to see Wonder Woman, but I wonder what kind of role she’ll have and who the real villain of the movie will be.
This was unexpected and totally caught my eye, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. trailer! The movie stars Superman himself, Henry Cavill. Also starring another favorite, Hugh Grant. It’s directed by Guy Ritchie who seems to be back in fine form with some kickass stylish filmmaking. In theaters August 14th, 2015. Holy crap! Next month!
Suicide Squad! The bootleg trailer was leaked on Saturday but Warner Bros. thankfully released a proper version of it today. I’m optimistic for this. The film looks dark and semi predictable, but my personal highlights are an appearance by Batman, seeing Harley Quinn outside of the animated world and video games, and not to mention a whole ton of characters that I’m not familiar with. Joker looks crazy as he should be, and no matter who plays him or what he sounds or looks like he’ll always be compared to Heath Ledger, but I think Jared Leto will be just fine.
We’ve been away from the blog for a while, and we apologize. Life has taken over but seeing the amazing coverage from San Diego Comic Con this year inspired us to come back and share our favorite news.
First off, check out this amazing Star Wars behind the scenes video from The Force Awakens. It’s simply amazing and beyond exciting to see a whole new Star Wars with old friends, new worlds, and new characters. And Simon Pegg! December 18th can’t come soon enough!
Hieronymus Bosch is clearly one of the most famous artists ever and his paintings of surreal scenes from the 1500’s have inspired many. Recently, a Tumblr blogger named Amelia has found a piece of sheet music painted upon somebody’s butt in Bosch’s “The Garden of Earthly Delights”. There’s a lot going on in this painting, but here we’re going to focus on the butt music as discovered by Amelia and played on piano. Is this the soundtrack of the scene? Random notes? Probably not. Either way, it’s a fascinating discovery that only took like 500 years to find and we get to enjoy every second of it now and forever.
Our Tuesday Crush today has been crushing it all over the internet lately and her name is Lindsey Pelas. She’s absolutely stunning and we think you’d agree. She’s 25 years old, from Louisiana, 5’4″ tall, stunning green eyes, and a natural (yes, really) 32DDD. She’s been a bartender and has posed for Playboy. Check out the video here by LiveRich Media and if that doesn’t get you ready for summer, then I can’t help you. Enjoy our mini gallery too and soak in the summertime.
