Study of an Actor:

It's amazing Jim Carrey hasn't permanently crippled himself with all the falling down he's done, as seen in this supercut (via Geek Tyrant):

 

Professional Lithograph of the Day:

I can't call this fan art since it's by professional illustrator Mark Englert and part of a Comic-Con promo of Fox's 25th anniversary Blu-ray of Edward Scissorhands, but it's too beautiful not to share. Click on the image below to see it nice and big (via /Film).

Classic Trailer of the Day:

Even 45 years ago, you could find the summer populated by sequels, like the one for In the Heat of the Night that premiered in New York on July 8, 1970. They titled it They Call Me Mister Tibbs, after a memorable line from the first movie, which is like titling Terminator 2 "I'll Be Back." Watch the original trailer for Tibbs below.
