A live-action version of Attack on Titan has been filming in Japan and they’ve released an incredible series of cast posters with everyone in full costume. It reveals a lot about the setting of the film which looks to be more post-apocalyptic than the medieval-esque world the manga/anime depicts. The cast includes Miura Haruma as Eren, Mizuhara Kiko as Mikasa, Shu Watanabe as Fukushi, Ayame Misaki as Hiana, and Rina Takeda as Lil.

This Lego version of Star-Lord’s mask from Guardians of the Galaxy was built by Orion Pax who says:

STAR LORD, the main character from Guardians of the Galaxy, like every famous rapper, for sure is wearing a nice looking mask. This is built with the red light brick, so the eyes light up. The printed pattern reflects nice in the dark on any surface. The scale is close to 1:1!

Light up eyes and a 1:1 scale? This thing is brilliant!

Take a closer look after the break.

Into the Woods is due to hit theaters this holiday season and Entertainment Weekly has released four preview covers that give us a good look at what we’ll see in the film. Johnny Depp is the Big Bad Wolf and he’s got this whole zoot suit thing going on that’s just…odd (but not in a good way). io9 noted that he looks like something out of a Tex Avery cartoon and we have to agree. Given Depp’s track record, we wouldn’t be surprised if that was his inspiration.

The rest of the cast looks pretty amazing though—especially Meryl Streep as the Witch and Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel. What do you think? Is Depp going to make a good Wolf?

baby-groot-costume-2-499x480

All of the characters in Marvel’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy were absolutely wonderful, but the one who definitely stole the show was Groot (especially dancing baby Groot). We’ve seen some spectacular Groot cosplay for cons, and even a baby Groot or two, but there isn’t much out there as far as an official costume is concerned. This instructable provides a solution. It’s remarkably clever, and the materials she used were all pretty simple: paper, duct tape and a bit of glue.

Sure, it’s probably not the most maneuverable costume around, but it sure is cool looking (reminds us of the Funko vinyl) and it’s also pretty affordable to make.

gauntlet missle

Prop maker Patrick Priebe has a thing for crafting gadgets that fire real do-not-try-this-at-home kinds of stuff. His latest invention is a take on the gauntlet that Iron Man uses to blow his enemies to smithereens (tank missile!). Patrick’s version has a palm-mounted laser (which is strong enough to pop a balloon) and also a built-in rocket launcher. Patrick, you’re a bit bonkers, but gosh do we love your videos. Keep it up!

Check out the Iron Man gauntlet in action after the break…

villain pub

Trying to take over the world isn’t easy. At the end of the day, even villains need a place to relax, which is when they head over to the Villain Pub. Loki, Voldemort, Joker and all your evil faves are there, just waiting to mock each other for their fashion choices.

See the video after the break.

gillan shaved head

We finally have video of Karen Gillan having her wonderful head of hair shaved for her role as Nebula in Guardians Of The Galaxy.

It’s just as adorable as you think it would be. Her face is such a variety of reactions and all of them are just so…her.

Head after the break to watch the video.

According to Funko, this is the first ever tattoo of the Pop! Dancing Groot figurine, and it belongs to @89centburrito. I never thought I’d actually ever say this in my life, but damn, that is one adorable tattoo.

Evangeline Lilly

Evangeline Lilly may be playing Hope Van Dyne in Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man movie, but her hair sure makes her look like Wasp. Lilly posted a picture of the short ‘do on Instagram yesterday stating, “How’s my new do?” Another picture shows her with Paul Rudd so it seems very likely that she’s on set.

So, the question is will Lilly essentially be playing the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of Wasp who goes by another name that isn’t Janet Van Dyne? If that’s the case, I don’t understand the reasoning for changing it up. Or, is Marvel just screwing with us and giving Lilly a bob cut to make us curious? Ahhh! I want answers.

See another pic of the hair and a comparison with Wasp after the break.

trooper helmet 1

It’s hard to tell if we’re looking at actual designs that will be used in the film or good (but fake) fan art, but there’s no doubt that these Han Solo and Snowtrooper costume images from Indie Revolver are making the rounds and are being cited as the real deal. Real or fake, they are interesting either way.

So far, we have a look at Han in a trenchcoat that’s less like his Endor camo and a little more Browncoaty. There’s also a snow uniform that looks like like his old Hoth gear. As for the troopers, no word on which side of the fight they’re on, but they appear to be snow troopers.

You can see the images after the break.
