Daniel Radcliffe is playing Igor in yet another telling of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. The movie is set to release in January 2015, but Radcliffe was caught taking a break on set in costume and it shows off his new flowing locks. I think the new look suits him. Plus, he’s playing opposite James McAvoy (McAvoy is the doctor) – I’m intrigued.

On a recent episode of his comedy podcast, Hollywood Babble-On, director Kevin Smith revealed that Zack Snyder showed him a picture of Batman’s costume from the much-anticipated film, Batman vs. Superman, which Snyder is directing.
“I saw the Batman costume. More than that I saw a picture of him (Affleck) in the costume. Now, I don’t want to give anything away ’cause that is up to them and stuff, but I am going to say this, I instantly bear hugged him (Snyder). You have not seen this costume in a movie on film before, and for a comic book fan it was mind bending. I was like ‘Get out of here, only you have enough power to pull this off.’ Because everyone always like does this Matrix/X-Men black armor…It was fantastic. I’m already a flag waver for this movie, but the costume, it blew my mind. I think everyone is just gonna be like ‘Holy ****!’ It’s its own thing, man. It’s like we haven’t been down this path at all. I was so elated….Even the hardest core “**** all this” person will be like ‘alright, I’m ready.’”
During the show, Smith went on to mention that he thought that the costume was influenced by a particular style, but the quote was later redacted. There’s talk on the Internet that the design of the costume might’ve been influenced by Frank Miller’s famous The Dark Knight Returns comic, but that’s still up in the air.
Batman vs. Superman will debut in theaters on July 17, 2015.

Though Wolverine has appeared in more than a couple of movies now, he never dons any of his brightly colored costumes from the comic books. Like the other X-Men, he goes for a sleeker and more subtle look. However, the classic brown and yellow spandex from the comics does show up in a deleted scene from The Wolverine. A screen grab of the suit is pictured above.
An extended version of the last scene of the film is shown in a multi-touch ebook (iTunes link) created to promote the film. Logan is given a box, and the outfit is tucked inside. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see Hugh Jackman in an outfit like this just once.

We first posted about this Indiana Jones video back in August when it was nothing more than a still of a giant Styrofoam boulder chasing Indy. Now, the folks at Improv Everywhere have released the whole video with the boulder, the idol, and Indy fleeing through Central Park.

BPAL posted this image debuting 4 new scents from their upcoming scent line for The Dark Crystal and, wouldn’t you know it, they were Skeksis.
What do Skeksis smell like? Well, according to BPAL’s Facebook Page, they smell like:
- skekZok the Ritual-Master
An incense of deception: frankincense, opoponax, hyssop, champaca, and opium poppy accord.
- skekUng the Garthim-Master
Brute force and destruction: vetiver, smoke, steel, and dragon’s blood resin.
- skekTek the Scientist
Metal and stone beams of dark light: hyssop, black currant, black viola, passionflower, and myrrh.
- skekNa the Slave-Master
The essence of vile gluttony: an abundance of spices, sweet cakes, thick creams, and opulent liqueurs mixed with the scent of whip leather and rusted padlocks.
- *skekSi jazz hands!*
I had to leave in the jazz hands comment. Because the idea of Skeksis doing jazz hands made me laugh which is good because normally they scare the everlivingbejiminy out of me.
You may have noticed I said a line of scents from The Dark Crystal and, we’re able to confirm that there will be much more to come. We don’t have details, but BPAL’s never let us down. Because these oils, like so many of the BPAL scents, are officially licensed and crafted in partnership with the creators, we’re pretty sure they’ll smell just like what The Jim Henson Company envisioned.
I want to know what Fizzgig smells like! Hopefully not wet dog. I’m allergic.
The film Pompeii is coming to theaters next winter (February 21st to be exact) and even if we all know how it’s going to end, it’s still worth checking out. One reason among many to head to the theater to see it is Kit Harrington. Yes, Jon Snow knows a thing or two and he’s moved on from the icy Wall in the North to the fiery city of Pompeii. He’s playing a slave who becomes a gladiator.
Let’s hope this showcase of Harrington’s abs translates to more shirtless Jon Snow in Game of Thrones (hey, there are topless girls in the show all the time – it’s only fair).
Watch the trailer for Pompeii after the break.

As you probably recall, several members of the Back To The Future cast had to don lots of makeup to look older for the “present” ’80s portion of the movie. Reddit user Native-New-Yawkah posted the above comparison of what the actors looked like with the “aging” movie makeup to make them look 30 years older versus what they actually look like having genuinely aged around 30 years since the movie was made.
All-in-all, it looks like the makeup people were pretty accurate.
Ok, Science Fiction Theater is on tonight so I have to go now. Going to skip the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance to watch it. I have my priorities, thank you.
