Today in Movie Culture: Spider-Man Vs. Deadpool, Silent Cut of 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and More

Aug 28, 2015

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

 

Cosplay of the Day:

Spider-Man and Deadpool had a little dance-off on a rooftop in L.A. (via Fashionably Geek):

 

Fan Art of the Day:

Graphic designer Shawn Hall made a parody of a recent Batgirl comic book cover instead featuring Kate McKinnon's character in the Ghostbusters reboot and some ladies from the original, too. Paul Feig graciously retweeted it (via Twitter). 

 

Trailer Redo of the Day:

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was heavily influenced by Buster Keaton's The General, so it makes sense to imagine his latest as a black and white silent film (via Live for Films):

 

Filmmaker in Focus:

Speaking of George Miller, here's an awesome poster put out by the El Rey Network uniting popular characters from his Mad Max, Babe and Happy Feet movies:

 

Star Wars of the Day:

This music video reminds me that if John Williams stops scoring main-series Star Wars movies then they should get Daft Punk (via Geekologie):

 

Movie Trivia of the Day:

Are you a true fan of the How to Train Your Dragon movies? Then you probably won't learn anything from this video of 100 facts only you should know:

 

Vintage Image of the Day:

Groucho and Margaret Dumont look on as Harpo and Chico fight in a scene from Animal Crackers. The Marx Brothers classic opened in theaters on this day 85 years ago. 

 

Convention Promo of the Day:

It's not a new problem where a movie promoted well enough at Comic-Con or another convention fails at the box office. Here's a neat behind-the-scenes look at Blade Runner that made the rounds at sci-fi events in 1982 before it flopped in theaters (via The Playlist): 

 

Abridged Movie of the Day:

Speaking of Blade Runner, if you've never decided on a favorite version, here's another one to choose from, the "Quick Cut" (via Cinematic Montage Creators):

 

Classic Trailer of the Day:

Speaking of Ridley Scott movies, today is the 30th anniversary of the European premiere of Legend, which wouldn't turn up in American theaters until the following spring. At which time the Jerry Goldsmith score was replaced with one by Tangerine Dream. Below is an awesome trailer for the fantasy film, and you can tell by the credits at the end that it's one made before the music changes were in place.
