Today in Movie Culture: The Original Ant-Man, 'Star Wars' Toys That Won't Fit In Your Home and More

Today in Movie Culture: The Original Ant-Man, 'Star Wars' Toys That Won't Fit In Your Home and More

Jul 20, 2015

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

 

Vintage Summer Movie Preview of the Day:

Was 1982 the best summer for movies? It looks that way in retrospect looking at this sneak preview of the season's offerings of 33 years ago, but let's remember that a lot of these releases, such as Blade Runner and Tron were box office disappointments.

 

Vintage Image of the Day:

Garrett Morris as Ant-Man in a Saturday Night LIve sketch beside Dan Aykroyd as The Flash. It's because of this sketch (watch it here) that Morris got a cameo in the new Ant-Man movie. 

 

Easter Eggs of the Day:

In addition to the Garrett Morris cameo in Ant-Man, Mr. Sunday Movies humorously points out all the Marvel, Disney and Star Wars Easter Eggs to be found in the new superhero movie (via Devour):

 

Fan Art of the Day:

More Marvel! French artist Blule makes some incredible splatter paintings for various superheroes, including most of the Avengers (see Captain America below) and Batman, plus James Bond and Django. See more at Design Taxi

 

Cosplay of the Day:

Speaking of The Avengers, here's Ashlynne Dae doing a twist on the movie's villain, Loki (via KamiKame):

 

Supercut of the Day:

Ever notice all the crucifixion posturing in the movies of Martin Scorsese? If not, Milad Tangshir has compiled them for you in this supercut (via Montage Creators):

 

Filmmaker in Focus:

Lars von Trier is the latest focus of the auteur-centered video essay series Cinemasters (via Cinematic Montage Creators):

 

Celebrity Cosplay of the Day:

Yes, we've got two different cosplays of the day today because this one is very different and special, more about who is doing the cosplay than how the costumes related to movies. Christopher Guest and Jamie Lee Curtis took their kids to the tournament-game convention Evo 15 and the whole family dressed up as Street Fighter characters. Curtis needed to go incognito as Vega, but apparently Guest isn't famous enough to need a mask at a public event (via Fashionably Geek).

 

Star Wars Toy of the Day:

If you have the room to hold this 18ft by 12 ft Millennium Falcon from Hot Toys, you'll presumably also have enough money for however much it will cost (via Geek Tyrant):

 

Classic Trailer of the Day:

30 years, Tom Hanks was riding on the breakout success of Splash and even Bachelor Party for the marketing of his subsequent release, The Man With One Red Shoe, which bombed when it opened this week in 1985. Watch the comedy's original trailer, which looks pretty entertaining in retrospect:
