This Weekend in Movie Culture: The Sound of 'Star Wars,' Ghostbuster Iron Man and More

Nov 07, 2015

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:

 

Star Wars of the Day:

It's no wonder the original Star Wars received a special Oscar for its sound effects. It's surprising that more of the movies weren't nominated for Best Sound Editing, though. Here's a great supercut of the sounds of Star Wars (via Live for Films):

 

Movie Mashup of the Day:

In case The Avengers ever have to bust some ghosts, Tony Stark is prepared with this new Iron Man armor (via Geek Tyrant):

 

Concert Tour Trailer of the Day:

If you love movie scores, especially the billion of them by Hans Zimmer, you probably don't need this trailer to make you want to see Zimmer in concert, but it's still pretty cool (via Geek Tyrant):

 

Cosplay of the Day:

More people should cosplay as (good) movie poster art, a la this guy going as the iconic imagery for John Carpenter's The Thing (via Live for Films):

 

Supercut of the Day:

Watch a bunch more movie posters based on actual movie scenes come to life in another video by Whoispablo:

 

Movie Art Fail of the Day:

When home video artwork all looks the same ... whoever wins we all lose:

 

Filmmaker in Focus:

Watch Alfred Hitchcock direct the strangling scene from Frenzy in this rare opportunity to see the master at work:

 

Fan Art of the Day:

If it's good enough for co-director and star Jemaine Clement, it's definitely good for the rest of us What We Do in the Shadows fans:

 

Pro Art of the Day:

Who doesn't want a Muppet Babies type cartoon based on Mad Max: Fury Road? See more of Joey Spiotto's Little Golden Book inspired artwork at /Film.

 

Classic Trailer of the Day:

In honor of the release of SPECTRE, let's revisit the first movie starring Daniel Craig as James Bond. Watch the original trailer for 2006's Casino Royale below.
