Today in Movie Culture: 'Ride Along 3' Trailer, Alan Rickman Memorials and More

Jan 15, 2016

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

 

Mashup of the Day:

Kevin Hart and Woody Harrelson are unlikely partners in this NSFW Funny or Die mashup of Ride Along and True Detective imagining a Ride Along 3:

 

Political Fan Art of the Day:

Donald Trump is a Sith Lord and Bernie Sanders is a Jedi Knight in this obviously pro-Democrat painting inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens (via Hilton Collins):

 

Historically Inspired Fan Art of the Day:

Darth Vader's costume was inspired by Japanese history, so it makes sense to now imagine a samurai version of Kylo Ren. See other characters drawn by Nikolas A. Draper for a "Feudal Star Wars" series on his Tumblr.

 

Cosplay of the Day:

This new Star Wars: The Force Awakens hoodie makes Kylo Ren cosplay easier than ever (via Fashionably Geek):

 

Supercut of the Day:

Watch a video compiling every time R2-D2 (the best Star Wars character IMHO) saves the day throughout the franchise:

 

Movie Merchandise of the Day:

Is there anything that isn't better in the form of BB-8? Here's a great lamp for your collection of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merch (via Geek Tyrant):

 

Vintage Image of the Day:

The original Harry Potters -- Michael Moriarty as Harry Potter Sr. and Noah Hathaway as Harry Potter Jr. -- in Troll, which opened this weekend 30 years ago.

 

Film Festishm of the Day:

Watch a time-lapse video of a projector showing The Hateful Eight in 70mm. Don't worry, the actual movie isn't shown (via Reddit).

 

Memorials of the Day:

Comic artist Yehudi Mercado drew a portrait in tribute to the late Alan Rickman and left it as part of a memorial shrine at the Fox building used as the setting for Die Hard. See more images at Mercado's website

 

And fans also paid tribute to Rickman at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter:
