Simon Pegg Gets Filthy For These Absolutely Anything Images

fb share tweet share

absolutely anythingHands and paws down, one of our most anticipated films of the coming year is Terry Jones’ Absolutely Anything, which will mesh Simon Pegg with the Monty Python guys, as well as aliens and a talking dog. Too high concept? Never! We now have our first decent look at the film via stills, and I have to say a filthy Simon Pegg bemusedly holding a sausage is about as solid an image as we could hope for.

From a zany-sounding script that Jones wrote himself, Absolutely Anything centers on Pegg’s schoolteacher Neil Clarke, who is granted otherworldly powers by a group of aliens voiced by Jones, John Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, and Terry Gilliam. Neil now has the power to make (absolutely) anything happen solely by wishing it to be so; given the brains behind this venture, Neil’s wishes could be childishly silly or sexually deranged and quite possibly everything in between.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Burns In This Short New Trailer

fb share tweet share

Remember that “final” trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 that appeared a while back? Yeah, it turns out that the term final is a bit more relative than we were led to believe in English class, especially since a short new trailer just popped up online. Not that we’re complaining, it’s still makes the upcoming young adult dystopia look like a solid time at the movies.

This short video basically serves to drive home all of the various traumas that heroine Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has do endure over the course of the film. After surviving two rounds in the Hunger Games arena, killing other teenagers for the entertainment of the masses, and watching numerous friends and allies die right before her eyes, she’s got some serious issues to deal with. And her stint in District 13, battling the forces of the Capital, and serving as the face of the burgeoning revolution aren’t doing her any favors.

Helix Season 2 Trailer Trades The Arctic For An Island, But The Body Count Remains

Along with Defiance, Syfy’s Helix was one of the first signs that the network was shifting its focus away from light, fluffy fare like Eureka and Warehouse 13, and back towards more serious science fiction dramas. That’s a good thing, but it doesn’t mean those early experiments were entirely successful. Defiance eventually found its footing, but Helix was frustrating bordering on terrible for most of its first season, only to rally somewhat at the end. Now the latest Helix teaser has provided more clues about where the show is headed: namely, to an island populated by at least one Steven Weber.

Star Trek: The Next Generation Would Look Amazing In Cinerama, See The Proof Here

102714_StarTrekCinerama_5You might remember a while back when we ran a story about a mad genius who fiddled with footage from from Star Trek: The Original Series to show us what it would have looked like as a widescreen Cinerama presentation. He basically found scenes that included a long, one-take camera pan and edited them into a single widescreen image. The results were bloody gorgeous, and now artist Nick Acosta has done the same thing for The Next Generation, with equally stellar results.

You Won’t Believe Who Raised Sarah Connor In Terminator: Genisys

Terminator GenisysI’m trying really hard to stay positive about the upcoming Terminator: Genisys, but they’re not making it particularly easy. We recently ran into reports from people claiming to know the whole film who called it a franchise killer. Without any actual details to back that up, that was pretty easy to dismiss, though it did get our Spidey-Senses tingling a bit. Now some new plot details, official ones actually released by the studio, have come to light, and while it’s certainly possible to pull this off (trying to stay positive), a lot of people are going to hate what they’re about to read.

EW has a couple of alternate covers featuring stars of the movie—including Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney on a motorcycle, and a bedecked Matt Smith and Jason Clarke armored up and hanging out with a fleshless terminator—and you have to be glad that they’re staged and not actually from the movie, because they look like cosplay. Still, it’s easy enough to ignore promo stuff like this that obviously has nothing to do with the actual film. It’s what the article contains that is concerning.

This is the week where candy fiends and costume lovers get to live out their greatest fantasies. (To an extent.) But be careful that you don’t happen to stumble into the neighborhood where the classic Universal Pictures movie monsters live, because you might not like what they have to hand out, as the excellent video below points out.
