Morning Watch: Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson Caught on Kiss-Cam, 'The Narrative of Victor Karloch,' Produced by Jim Henson's Daughter, and More
Mar 06, 2012
Tom Hanks can do no wrong in our book. Not only is he one of the most likeable actors on the planet, time and time again he proves to be one of the most likeable human beings on the planet. Usually those two go hand-in-hand, though, because Hanks is always willing to turn the normally dry task of promoting a movie into something special. Today's clip has no promotion agenda, though. It's simply Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson caught on the Kiss-Cam at a recent L.A. Kings game and joining in on the fun-- Seriously, for people who have cameras pointed at them for a living, it's delightful to see they novelty of it hasn't worn off.
Their kiss doesn't happen 'til around the 50 second mark, but also make sure you catch the next couple's "Holy crap, it's Tom Hanks! Holy crap, now it's us!" moment.
Next up is the teaser trailer for a short film directed by model maker veteran Kevin McTurk (who has done visual effects for everything from Jurassic Park to The Dark Knight Rises) and produced by Jim Henson's daughter, Heather Henson. The plot description for The Narrative of Victor Karloch is rather thin, describing it only as a "Victorian ghost story puppet film," but the trailer has mood to spare and certainly leaves us wanting more. And yes, that is Christopher Lloyd's voice you're hearing. [via @Headgeek666]
And to round out the trilogy of morning vids we have a swarm of flying robots performing the James Bond theme on a variety of instruments. The robo musicians in question are called quadrotors and were created by a team of engineers at the University of Pennsylvania. Why the James Bond theme? Why not?
