Today in Movie Culture: Superman Kill Count, The True "One" of 'The Matrix' and More

Sep 14, 2015

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

 

Kill Count of the Day:

Superman movies used to be pretty low on death, especially as caused by the hero himself. Until Man of Steel, of course. Watch the numbers rise fast as Mr. Sunday Movies counts up the Superman movie kill count:

 

Fan Theory of the Day:

We all know that Neo is "the one" in The Matrix movies. What this video presupposes is, maybe he isn't? Guess who is. Or just watch.

 

Fan Art of the Day:

We're less than three years away from the release of Avengers: Infinity War - Part 1, so here's a fan-made poster for the set (via Geek Tyrant):

 

Supercut of the Day:

When you mash together all the shootouts in Westerns, the genre definitely looks like it's the same movie every time (via Cinematic Montage Creators):

 

Shooting Location of the Day:

Clearly inspired by the documentary Los Angeles Plays Itself, Every Frame a Painting pays tribute to the third-largest movie production city in North America with "Vancouver Never Plays Itself":

 

Vintage Image of the Day:

Carrie Fisher poses with the stars of Postcards From the Edge, which she scripted based on her memoir. In the movie, which opened 25 years ago today, Meryl Streep plays a fictionalized version of the Star Wars star and Shirley MacLaine plays her a version of her mother, Debbie Reynolds

 

National Cinema of the Day:

British Cinema is not studied or celebrated enough, but this retrospective montage does a pretty good job of doing the latter in just five minutes (via Cinematic Montage Creators):

 

Cosplay of the Day:

This Groot is pretty amazing, and the rest of his friends' Guardians of the Galaxy cosplay isn't so bad either. See Star-Lord and Gamora by Sunji Cosplay at KamiKame

 

Filmmakers in Focus:

Emily Axford's latest NFSW satire of filmmakers for College Humor imagines what it's like to sleep with the Coen Brothers by equating their movies with sex acts:

 

Classic Trailer of the Day:

This week marks the 20th anniversary of the Toronto International Film Festival premeire of Mike Figgis's Leaving Las Vegas, which would go onto cement Nicolas Cage as an honorable thespian, Oscars-wise. Watch the original trailer below.
